.What I’m Reading | March 2017.

Welcome to my March post, I’ve been feeling rather determined to finish about three books a month and so far I’ve been managing this. If hope to get a bit more in but I struggled with one of my books.

I’ve really been enjoying Laini Taylors series, the second book starts off almost where we left it. Karou with all her memories back and living in hell. This book is set in the other world and the narrative jumps between her and Avika, as well as random seraph and chimaera. I felt this was a nice touch as it makes the story more grounded, more real. Seeing the war through those not directly evolved.

As well as Days of Blood and Starlight I also read the short story, Night of Cake and Puppets. Zuanna and Mik both appear in the second book, providing so much needed stress relief, but this short story is just for them. How they met, it’s a cute little story that takes place during the first book, after Zuanna has discovered the truth and before Karou disappears completely. 

I don’t know why but I had quite high hopes for The Picture of Dorian Gray. I think because there have been various adaptions of the story and character I expected a bit more to the story. I did enjoy it on the whole, but there were the odd moments where I felt like I was skim reading. It was very descriptive heavy, which I found unfortunate.
