The Iron Warrior loved up to all of my expectations. It was a fast paced, adventurous reads that won’t leave fans of the Iron Fey series disappointed. Once again Julie Kagawa completely drew me into this world of fear rivalries, and I have to say that I’ll be incredibly sad to leave it.
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
Genre: Supernatural, Historical Fiction
Published by: Quirk Books
Series: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children (#1)
Where to Find: Goodreads | Amazon
Hollow City is the second instalment to the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series, and it follows seamlessly on from the first book, with the same blend of fiction, real-life events, and of course, the photography. I thought this was an engaging sequel, but it was slow paced and dragged out in some places and so I didn’t think it was either better or worse than the first book.
If You Find Me is a heart-breaking, beautiful debut by Emily Murdoch. It follows the story of Carey and her sister, Janessa, when their father comes to take them away from the woods they’ve called home for the last nine years. The novel is more about Carey’s slow recovery and adjustment to the contemporary society, that she left behind when she ran away from home, than the mystery thriller the blurb makes it out to be. If You Find Me took a lot of turns that I wasn’t expecting, yet Carey’s ‘secret’ wasn’t very hard to guess and was almost predictable if you’ve watched Gone starring Amanda Seyfried. Nonetheless, it was a wonderful read, and definitely worth the hype it has received.
