Oh man, my MIAness is kind of ridiculous. I am slowly becoming acclimatized to being a full time employee again, and I’m not gonna lie, I don’t know how I had time to accomplish anything before I took my leave. PLUS, just, life – you know?
This blog has not been abandoned, in fact, it is something I really miss doing, I just need to get some life stuff sorted out before I can commit the time to it that it deserves. I really am missing writing though, and organizing my thoughts.
Really quickly, I powered through both A Court of Wings and Ruin & Lord of Shadows this month.
A Court of Wings and Ruin: Good, ACOMAF was better, and I think that is the general consensus on it. ALSO, Maas was so clearly setting up the story to continue (PLEASE PLEASE CASSIAN!) that I kind of feel like the ending lacked some finality for Feyre and Rhysand, which may be the point. Either way, obviously, it was good, but I was hoping for more (though really I just blame ACOMAF being so good, that how could you really go up from there?).
Lord of Shadows – OK, trying to stay away from spoilers, but my emotional response may inadvertently give something away. HOW, HOW, DO YOU END A BOOK ON THAT NOTE?! You’re gonna make me wait how many years to see some resolution? It is because of moments like that that I stand by my decision to NOT READ SERIES UNTIL THEY ARE COMPLETE. Anyhow, I’m pretty sure I raved about Lady Midnight earlier this year, and I loved LoS just as much, if not more. Definitely continues to be my favourite work by Clare, but she’s got a lot of stuff coming out over the next few years, so we’ll see if that sticks.
This is super short, I hope to be back on a more consistent basis soon, though likely not for at least another month!
