It's the Easter holidays ! I can eat all the chocolate ! I had a matchmaker egg yesterday (yes that is a real thing), and it was beautiful minty goodness ! I can't believe I've never had one before. Enough about chocolate and onto books ! I read three books this month and they were all great, I think it's been a good book month. So I wrote that yesterday, but I just wasn't in the writing spirit, but last night I had a super cool dream and it has seriously inspired me/motivated me and I am ready to review !
Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo
y new places, so many characters. It was just insane. But by jove did I enjoy it. I've not read the other Grisha series but I don't really think you need to. This reads perfectly without any prior knowledge of the world. Basically its about a group of misfits who must band together to pull off an impossible heist: break in to an impenetrable fortress and rescue a prisoner. The stakes are high, but the reward for pulling it off is even higher. Needless to say this is an epic story full of romance, revenge and betrayal. Did someone say superpowers!? Yes there's a bit of that here too. Sounds perfect ! My only negative of the book is that I found it to be maybe 100 pages too long and felt there was a bit of a lull about half way through. It picked up and everything kicked off so all was forgiven, but that would be my only criticism. I simply adored this band of merry misfits and loved the alternating chapter POVs. As with most books my favourite character were the ladies. Don't get me wrong, Kaz was cool and a great leader, but you just can't beat the Wraith. Will I be reading the next one? Hells yes ! I cannot wait to read the conclusion to this story !
My Book Rating - 4*
World After - Susan Ee This is the sequel to Angelfall, which I read and loved last year. I was not disappointed with this sequel ! I feel like the action was happening left, right and centre ! Every page was something new. Yes it did have moments of non action but they were few and far between. The book picked off straight where the first one ended, it was great ! This book seemed to ramp up the urgency, due to the consequences of the first book. Our main character Penryn, has to find her sister after an incident at the resistance camp is pinned on her. You're probably thinking, that's what happened in the first book, and you'd be right to think that. However, something has happened to Paige and its all on the angels ! Penryn has to find out what's going on before its too late ! Will Raffe be there to help? Will Penryn reunite with her sister? You must read to find out ! I certainly will be reading to find out what happens next.My Book Rating - 4*

Look at that a month of fours. That reminds me of a time I played mini golf ... I won't get into it right now, it'll only make me angry. The next time I write a post I'll be back at uni and stressing about exams, so lets have some fun and read some good books before then !
