A Court of Wings and Ruin – A Book That Should Have Been Shorter

★★


31451174Ok, how do I begin this rant.

My relationship with this series, as with all other Sarah J. Maas books, has been a bit rocky to say the least. The Throne of Glass series started off really high for me, went down hill, hit rock bottom, and then bolted up into the skies once again like a phoenix reborn. (I have the reviews of Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows and Empire of Storms if you want more details on that.)

This series was a bit different. It started it bad for me. I found little enjoyment in ACOTAR, and then got a little better, but I still didn’t really like ACOMAF (I know, how dare I), and then finally got pretty good here in ACOWAR. Still, I didn’t love this book. I wish I could have, but I didn’t. Yet, I must admit that I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would so that has to count for something.

Hace mucho tiempo en el cual no hago nada en español entonces decidí hacer reseñas de esta serie todas en español. Bueno, no todas. Estaré comenzando con este libro, y seguiré desde ahí asta Imperio de Tormentas. Ahora vamos a la reseña. Cada domingo sacare una nueva reseña de Sarah j. Maas.

De ahora en adelante a cualquiera de ustedes que desee llamarme mentirosa, siéntanse libre de hacerlo porque les he mentido a todos. Hace unas semanas publiqué un post hablando de las series que no terminaría. El número uno en esa lista fue la serie Trono de Cristal.

Empire of Storms – The Book that Shut Me Up

★★


28260587I have no words. I honestly don’t even know what to type right now because all that my mind can think of are the last few scenes of this book.

Now, I try to go into each book I read without bias and try to enjoy it as much as I can. Still, I must admit that I went into this expecting not to like it. This expectation came to me due to the fact that I almost died of boredom while reading Queen of Shadows, and then expressed it all in a ranting review. So, as you can imagine, I picked up this book expecting boredom and expecting another rant review to be written.

Obviously, that’s not what happened.

Queen of Shadows – An Utter Disappointment

★★


18006496Not gonna lie, I’m slightly disappointed. Ok, not slightly,  I’m very disappointed.

I didn’t love this book. I wanted to, but I didn’t. It’s all made worse by the fact that some part of me knew I wouldn’t.

What I love about this series is how each book brings forth a new layer of complexity to both the plot and the characters. I love that unlike in most YA people don’t fall in love with the first people they meet. I love that there are strong female and male friendships, and they are bonds not easily broken. That is especially great since most YA seems to focus only on love interests, and here we have a friendship like Chaol and Dorian, best friends who would kill and die for each other. We have Aelin and Lysandra who are both wicked, and mean, and true to themselves and each other. I love the strong family relations too with Aelin and Aedion. There are so many great things in this book.

And it saddens me that I did not love it because there are also so many things I hated.
