My Year in Reading: Cassie-la’s September 2016 Wrap Up

september-2016-book-wrap-up

Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin (★★★★★)

The conclusion to last year’s Wolf by Wolf exemplifies everything a finale should be! Exhilarating, heartbreaking and incredibly satisfying, you’d be remiss not to read this duology about a holocaust experiment turned shapeshifter named Yael, who lives in an alternate timeline where Germany won WWII. My heart still hurts after finishing this beautifully written story.

Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (★★★★☆)

The penultimate book in the Throne of Glass series has arrived. Get ready for heartbreak, all the quips, plenty of reunions, so many questionable decisions and some brand new ships. All will finally be revealed, including some plot points that were a tad too reminiscent of both A Court of Mist and Fury and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for my tastes. Regardless, I cannot wait to see how the last book ties up all of the remaining loose threads.

Madly by Amy Alward (★★★★☆)

When Princess Evelyn misuses a love potion and accidentally falls in love with herself, the king calls for a wild hunt to find a cure. Set in a modern world with a very fantastical twist, Madly is one giant metaphor about small businesses and the corporations destroying them, as told through the lens of a family alchemy shop and the evil synthetic company slowly killing them. But with unicorns.
