Les Petites Revues #2: Adventures In The Land Of The Five Stars

Nope, that's not the title of any book (at least as far as I know), but it should be. I used that to title this post because *spoilers* every book I'm reviewing today was fantastic, and I'm rating it at least 5 stars.

Also, I kinda thought that title sounded cool

Anyways.

The Golden Specific by S.E. Grove

I already really loved the idea of this series, but it only got better in this book. The writing is gorgeous, the worldbuilding is like nothing I have ever seen before, and the plot... actually that's also like nothing I've ever seen before. It's a softer kind of exciting, but it's also really complicated and intricate without being at all confusing.

The only part of this book I wouldn't madly fangirl about are the characters. It's not that there's anything wrong with them, in fact they're really good, just amid the beauty of everything else, they seemed less outstanding than they probably would have in another book.

Still, I adored this one overall and I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Rating: 5 Stars out of 5

Winter by Marissa Meyer

So I randomly realized recently that I never reviewed Winter. I read it in January, so giving a super in-depth review now would be hard, but I do remember fangirling a lot over the lovely writing, the spellbinding plot, and shipping Jacin and Winter like I'd only shipped Anakin and Padme before. So yeah, there's that.

Rating: 5 hundred stars out of 5.

The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

Gods of Asgard, Egypt, and Olympus, this book was good. I thought I adored the Heroes of Olympus series, but seriously, this one was even better. It's a brilliant return to that quirky, hilarious, really personal feel that the Percy Jackson series had and the Heroes of Olympus lacked. Not to say that HoO was bad or anything, but reading this one, I realized that a lot of the humor and voice in Heroes of Olympus felt kind of forced, but in Sword of Summer--and PJO--it feels far easier and far more natural.

So basically, this book is everything I ever loved about Rick Riordan’s writing: fun, sassy, exciting, and completely and totally insane.

Rating: 5 thousand stars out of 5.

So that's it for this round! Have you read any of these? If so, what’d you think of them? If not, which one intrigued you the most and why? Oh, and what’s one of your most recent 5-star reads? Can’t wait to see you in the comments!

  2. Winter was soooo good. I would have picked a different ending. But I agree, it was well worth the read.
