Now that's more complicated
World After - Susan Ee

Penryn is still dealing with the fact that her mother is unstable, that her sister Paige is messed up by the angels and that Raffe has left her to hunt for his wings and that everything is complicated.  The world is messed up, the angels and demons have plans that are going to make things way to messed up for everyone and many of the humans have not realised that this isn't something that they can ignore and hope goes away.

 

Penryn is strong but doesn't really realise it and there is hope for her and her family, she makes mistakes but owns up to them and the sword is subtly changing her.  I'm very curious as to what happens next.

 

Could be supernatural, demons, monsters (these angels are quite monstrous); diverse voices, terrifying women but I'm using it for Chilling Children for what's happening to Paige

A mediocre reading month...some good...some not so good, some good but long (everything under the sun).  I listened to more books than I physically read this month by far, including a re-listen/read for an old favorite.  I did not read a single arc...I think that's due to me feeling like I don't want to be a guinea pig for new books.  Essentially, that's what you are, after all, which is the price you pay for being able to read books before they come out.  I'm just not sure if I want to do it anymore.

I feel like this was even better the second time because I wasn't continually wondering where the-f Raffe was.  I knew I wouldn't see him for a while.   Besides, when Raffe did hook up with Penryn, finally; it turns out it was worth the wait.  I also feel like I was able to glean more on the plot itself this second time around.   I really love these characters and loved how Caitlin Davies brought them all to life.

 

Will I continue this series⇜  I'm re-reading with Audio, the entire 3-book series --up next is End Of Days

Ever After High: A Wonderlandiful World - Shannon Hale

While this book is very different than the others in the series and focuses less on the whole Storybook of Legends drama, it is still very fun to read. I loved the Wonderlandiful twists. Hale was very creative in her narration technique and breaking the fourth wall to pull the reader into the story in a very Peter Pan-esque way.

At first I wasn't sure how I'd like it since Cedar and Lizzie were the main characters in it, but once the action got going, I loved it. It was easy to get into the story.

This one is much more action-packed than the other books with lots of epic adventures, strange fight scenes, and running through chaos. It was amazing!

A great read that is sure to delight Ever After High fans. Different than the rest of the series, but it a very Wonderlandiful way.
