Review: The Black Tides of Heaven
The Black Tides of Heaven - JY Yang

I'm very interested in the setting and worldbuilding, but not super invested in the protagonist. There's just a certain lack of intensity? Something? But there are also raptors and magic. I may still pick up the sequel.

The Darkest Part of the Forest - Holly Black

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I really enjoyed this book. First of all, the whole concept of sharing a town/forest with fey is fascinating. I loved reading about all of Hazel's adventures in the woods and the weird goings-on in Fairfold. I found the characters to be interesting and enjoyed the writing style.

The story itself was also amazing. This book sucks you in and takes you for a ride. After awhile, I didn't even really care what happened at the end, I was just enjoying the journey. Great storytelling.

I haven't read much by Holly Black (I've been meaning to, I swear), but this seems to be a sort of Spiderwick Chronicles for YA audiences.

The only downside to the book was that the climax seemed pretty quick. When I got to that part I was like, "Oh, that was easy." This huge daunting problem was resolved in a few seconds. It was kind of a letdown, but I still really enjoyed the resolution, which is why I still gave the book 5 stars. Usually once the big plot is solved in a book, I lose interest in what happens next. For me, the story is basically over and the rest is just tying up lose ends. With this one, the problem was solved and I still wanted to know what happened to all of the characters and to see what happened next. The writing was that good. I almost wish this wasn't a standalone (which is a big deal for me, because I hate YA trilogies), because I just want to jump into the world of Fairfold again. 

Very well-writing and fascinating story. I loved it. Can't wait to read more by Holly Black.

First of all, this pair of small dirty shoes is actually not a high-priced version of "Converse" in many people's eyes. The most direct reason is that it is cool enough, enough Swag, and enough retro! Simply put, "It's so dirty, it's broken, it has a sense of quality,"

The dirty shoes were originally presented with old textures, and were hand-painted, colored and waxed to bring retro effects. No matter how long you put it, you can wear it and wear it through. In addition to the wide-legged pants, the sneakers are a good partner for various dresses. As you can see from the street shooting, the supermodel bloggers often appear in their daily matches. This year's LV show will show the infinite charm of dresses and sneakers, romantic puff sleeves, veil, and very futuristic shoes with a very attractive eye
Sophisticated workmanship is one of the air max 95 sale most intrinsic aspects of it! Intentionally worn shoes are made of Italian high-end soft leather with texture and comfort. Each pair is a unique, hand-built luxury product. Look dirty, in fact, super good match, whether it is jeans or skirt dress hold all live! My favorite is this pair of silver. Because silver has always been a woman's look, driving even more
Wild retro and stylish, but also added a sense of teenage girls. Very suitable for the summer atmosphere, this pair of small dirty shoes make every trip confident. This kind of dirty White Sneaker is casual and stylish, not picking people, even more wild. Wearing does not affect the sense of refinement.

Reading progress update: I've read 132 out of 150 pages.
The Black Tides of Heaven - JY Yang

The rest of this is an excerpt from the next companion novella, and the truth is that I'm just not feeling this world or these characters.   No, that's not true, I nearly cried a couple times so I'm responding to this emotionally. 

 

I just am not into the world enough and am not emotionally invested enough to want to read the excerpt.   Excellent writing, excellent world building, excellent plot, just not my thing. 

 

Full review to come later.

Yay!   The raptors finally show up.  I think I'll end up finishing this, and then finishing the McGuire novella, and then River of Teeth. 

 

I got caught up in this and it seems silly to stop reading this now.
