April Wrap Up

This month I didn’t read as much as I wanted but I am still really happy with what I ended up reading. A little up and down in terms of my ratings but I’m in a good reading mood so hopefully next month is even better!

✨Grishaverse Reread✨

I found myself getting annoyed throughout this reread of Siege and Storm. I think I remember this middle book being my least favourite out of the three but I had to kind of like pull my teeth to finish. Even though this was a relatively quick read it felt like the middle section where it was just a lot of the preparing for the inevitable war with the Darkling felt like it was going on forever. Nothing was really happening other than the ongoing miscommunication between Mal and Alina. If there’s one thing I hate the most when conflict comes up between love interests its miscommunication because its honestly the easiest to fix. I was very much on Mal’s side for the majority of the read and his justifications for why he was pushing Alina away made sense (though the drinking and hooking up with the girl Alina can’t stand wasn’t great). I am not that big a fan of Nikolai though, he felt pretentious to me. He used Alina for his own narrative in claiming the throne, even though he may be the right person for it. I don’t understand why he couldn’t just be friends with Alina, why did he have to take it to that level when he knew she was struggling with her feelings for Mal. Overall wasn’t my favourite, still felt nostalgic to me though and I appreciated my reread for sure!

Grishaverse Reread

Sooo I said I was going to be rereading the Stormlight Archives so I can finally get to Rhythm of War but I feel like I’m not really in any kind of rush to read it until the 5th book comes out as that will be the finale of the current storyline I believe. So once that books release is announced then I will start my reread. But for right now I kind of want to dive back into the Grishaverse. I haven’t read Rule of Wolves yet simply because I’m had a hard enough time remembering all of the characters for King of Scars and it’s been nearly two years so I have no chance right now. So I want to start with the original Shadow and Bony trilogy and I will just continue on from there until I get to Rule of Wolves and be refreshed and back up to date! I also haven’t watched the TV show yet so I think that will be a nice treat at the end of my reread.
