2014 November Reading List

City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett – I fell in love with the story right from the beginning, and it was one of those rare cases when the writer’s voice was just as compelling as the story. 4/5 stars Amazon Bookdepository

Sixth of the Dusk by Brandon Sanderson – The world building was interesting, but the story dragged, and by the time we got to the interesting part, I had lost interest. 3/5 stars Amazon  

The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett – Over three quarters of the book, the story deals with three unrelated plots that seem to go nowhere, and the real plot is revealed only at the end, before the final battle. Plus there’s unnecessary rape, so meh. 3/5 stars Amazon Bookdepository 

Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean – Chase was my favorite character in the other books in the series, but here she turned out to be just another scared woman with little power to begin with, which was disappointing because I expected her to be badass. 3/5 stars Amazon Bookdepository 

The Sword-Edged Blonde by Alex Bledsoe A lot of adventures, rather fun, so I expect the series can only get better after this. 3/5 stars Amazon Bookdepository
