Best of the Month: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman ★★★★
This is one Gaiman that I’ve always wanted to read but had just never got around to it. I loved it. I also loved realizing just how many fantasy novels clearly got the inspiration from this.
Least Favorite: The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert ★★★
I really loved the beginning of this one but it kind of lost me near the end. I’m still not sure how to put my dislike into words. YA just hasn’t been my thing as of late so I’m sure others will adoe it.
Biggest Surprise: The Rules of Magic (Practical Magic #2) by Alice Hoffman ★★★★
This was a surprise mainly because of the surprise of its release. Sometimes you never know you need a book until you’ve got it in your hands. 🙂
Biggest Disappointment: The Boy on the Bridge (The Hungry Plague #2) by M.R. Carey ★★★
The Girl with All the Gifts was one of my favorites when I read it way back in 2014. This was also a surprise sequel release but one that I definitely could have done without.
