Ah, Autumn! That wonderful time of year when the temperature drops, and I can finally start wearing my vast collection of sweaters. *looks at outdoor thermometer and sees it is 98 degrees* Well, heck! At least I can read autumnally until the weather decides to cooperate.
Firefight (The Reckoners #2) by Brandon Sanderson Much like its predecessor, Firefight is still an endlessly fun and interesting take on superheroes, but it lacks that certain something to make it a 5 star. Rating: 4 Stars
Calamity (The Reckoners #3) by Brandon Sanderson As with this whole series, the worlds Sanderson builds are endlessly fascinating, but I’ve failed to feel emotionally invested in the characters. Intriguing plot and twist on superheroes, but it does fall into predictability at times. Rating: 4 Stars
Perfect for fans of the enemies-to-lovers trope, Serpent & Dove is powerful and full of swoon worthy moments, but an over abundance of snark and a shaky magic system keep this from being the perfect book. Rating: 4.5 Stars
Full of magic, banter, and perfectly placed words, The Raven Boys is the kind of book that wakes feelings of whimsy and adventure that have been beaten down by the day to day grind of our world. Rating: 5 Stars
Dark Age is beyond brutal and violent in ways that cheapen the story to the point where I’m not sure I’ll pick up the next installment. But I will never deny that Brown is a master world builder and character writer. Rating: 3 Stars
