Reading Update...The Iron Warrior and The Six of Crows

Tis the season to be completely swamped. But I've still managed to keep up with my reading and I thought I'd write a quick post and share a couple of thoughts.

First up~ The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa.

I LOVE the Iron Fey series. Megan, Puck, and Ash are some of my all time favorite characters. (Team Ash) So of course I had to follow along into the next series, but I have to admit I did't love it. The first two books I'd give a "strong like", and the last book, well...I barely finished. In fact I wanted to DNF it. By the time I hit 75% I mostly scanned through and read the last chapter. I just felt the story dragged and took to long to get to the point.

Next up~ The Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

The follow up to the Shadow and Bone series. Once again, I did not love it as much as the first trilogy, but I liked it enough to continue with the series. The characters were unique, flawed but likable, and the writing itself is absolutely to die for. Tension and conflict in every scene.

Now I'm reading The Fifth Wave, and have Winter on my Christmas list.

Got to go, thanks for stopping by and happy reading!
