Okay my peeps, I have a question for you. I’m considering adding a Saturday blog series that will allow me to mini-review the books I blogged through the week. The reason being, it’ll be shorter and people who didn’t want to read the longer posts may quickly catch up with it all at one time. However, my good friend Fizzy says it’s redundant and that I should do the mini reviews in my weekly wrap up. What says you? I’ll add them in today for the sake of doing it but let me know in the comments below how you’d prefer.
New on the Blog
Goodreads Mondayis a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. To take part, you simply choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Don’t forget to check out her blog and link back to Lauren’s Page Turners.
I really enjoyed this book. I appreciate that Harry was sensitive enough to recognize that his father had done wrong. But, I also appreciated that Sirius was able to assure him that people can and do change. None of us are bound to our past. Each of us can make the effort to become better people.
Let there be Light will be best enjoyed by those that enjoy young creation discussions. The book could read to some as a information dump. While others will enjoy the theories. The plot is a bit juvenile and footnotes would have lended more validity to the theories presented.
This book was well written though it did fall into the usual YA trope. Mysterious boy with secrets and the good girl who falls for him. I was reminded of Divergent with this book. Though, in Starswept you have the arts vs factions. Of course, no YA would be complete without a possible love triangle and this book does have that. Though it feels less forced than most.
I’m starting to add a new feature with a content guide on reviews written from this point on. This means I can review a greater variety of books for a wide range of readers. The content reviews may be found at the beginning of the review and will outline whether the book is meant for Christian or Secular audience. It will also include trigger warnings and content advisory.
