[Another old review. Happily, it's been a few years and my last paragraph is no longer true. In fact, I'm behind and have several books of Cashore's I need to read in order to catch up.] I have a fondness for pseudo-historical fantasy - you know, fantasy set in a world that feels a little like som...

I didn’t realize that the three books in this trilogy would be so independent, so I had to write a description and review for each one. Sorry that it’s so long. Feel free to skip to the end where I summarize the strengths and weaknesses of this series. GRACELING Certain people have mismatched ey...

First off, I really enjoyed this book. It was one of those books that I couldn't put down. The only thing that I found myself annoyed at was when it went on and on with Katsa deciding what she wanted with Po. After he told her that she could have him any way that she wanted, I felt she was just repe...

This book was recommended to me by a couple of geeky friends and boy was this ever a great rec! I really enjoyed this story. It had everything but the kitchen sink and yet somehow flowed very well. There was adventure, there were superpowers, there were evil monarchs and benevolent ones, there were ...

Vanilla. And 2008.That's my review of this book. [spoiler] Despite being a fantasy book, for some reason Graceling read very different from the recent YA-fantasy books I've been reading. There's a hollowness in the world building, I never connected with the characters and their troubles and some...

Kristin Cashore’s first novel is a very alluring and charming read. I’ve loved all the twists and turns in this book and I had NO idea where this book was headed. If you like young adult fantasy/romance, this is beyond perfect for that sub-genre. *Sorry but just wanted to say for books I completely ...

When I discovered this was a debut novel, I was so impressed. There is so much detail that goes into the landscape, characters, and world of this novel that I was sure Kristin Cashore was an experienced writer. I feel like this is the kind of story that is with the author for a long time before she ...

After having immersed myself in the Twilight Saga because I couldn’t pull myself from watching the trainwreck, I tried to actually read good YA fantasy by authors who can actually write enviable prose and featuring heroines that don’t make me want to tear out their spine through their throat. It’s ...

Very annoyingly naive and silly type of feminism. The story could have been so much better. I was tempted to rate 1 star but forced myself to be more lenient.

I enjoyed a lot of things about this book, but parts of it also drove me nuts. For starters, I thought the writing was strong and I liked the author's voice. I could feel Katsa and Po's world coming to life as I read, and I appreciated that. I also liked seeing the relationship build between Katsa...
