As some of you know, I've wanted to learn how to for quite some time. It's always been that crazy dream of mine, but I never got off my butt to do it. This year, I've decided to do something that scares me, which means I'm going to try to learn how to draw. I'm not good, but with the help of some books, I'm slowing getting better. When I saw this book offered up on Netgalley, I knew I needed to take a chance on it. I've wanted to learn how to draw, and the Chibi style is one of my favorites. I LOVE anything chibi, so I figured this one would be great to help me explore if this is a style I would enjoy drawing in.
It's been a few days since I finished this book, and I still don't know quite how I feel about it. I picked this up as part of Libro.FM's influencer program, and I was immediately drawn to the cover. Seriously, look at how pretty the cover is. I also enjoy post-apocalyptic reads. I figured I would give this book a chance. I think it's important to state that this book was not character-driven. You never even know the character's name. You only know them as The Girl, The Man, and The Bear. I am such a character-driven reader that this honestly threw me off.
As many of you know, I LOVED Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller, so I was incredibly honored that Sourcebooks Fire sent me a physical copy of Belle Révolte! This book looked like everything I could want. I love fantasy & the blurb sounded terrific! Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to the hype I built in my head. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed it, but it wasn't nearly as amazing as I hoped it would be.
Love Her or Lose Her is the second book in the Hot and Hammered series by Tessa Bailey. I read the first one earlier in the year, and I genuinely enjoyed it. Georgie and Travis were so much fun, so I couldn't wait to read about Dominic and Rosie.
Everything pointed to this being the perfect book for me, but unfortunately, this was just not that good.
This would be an excellent novel for people who enjoy a good biography. This book felt like I was reading a biography that happened to have dragons in it.
