One of the best books I've read this year. A dystopian novel that manages to be both a deeply thought-through vivisection of what patriarchies do to women to keep them powerless and an action-packed, character-driven thriller filled with intense emotions. 'The Grace Year' is a high impact 'I...

The Grace Year is aptly introduced with quotes from The Handmaids Tale (Margaret Atwood) and Lord of the Flies (William Golding), two classic works that obviously acted as strong inspiration for Kim Liggett’s new novel.

White ribbons for the young girls, red for the grace year girls, and black for the wives. Innocence. Blood. Death.❞ The Grace Year has gotten already a lot of hype.

I was sent this ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.For a book that's 416 pages, it really didn’t say anything that I hadn't read before.The Grace Year is a book with a strong premise and a lacklustre execution with plotholes, poor pacing and a structure that makes it feel twice as lo...

I find it only fair to let you know that I'm the type of reader who is fairly desensitized to horror novels at this point. I read a lot of them and, since I found this genre early on when YA horror wasn't a big thing, most of them are targeted to adults. So take my review with a grain of salt, my fr...
