Omygosh… this book freaked me out. Centering around a disease called The Violence that basically will create a sudden rage in a person and this rage is taken out on anyone unlucky enough to be around them.
This book does have a theme besides violence. It shows the reader the lengths someone will go to protect themselves and their loved ones. This survival instinct is possibly what is stronger than The Violence itself. And, even when things look dire, there is that spark of hope when someone carries on against all odds.
This was a tough read for me. Lot’s of trigger warnings: Physical and sexual assault and, of course, violence. Although I had a hard time getting through parts of it, I would recommend this to anyone who can handle the emotional impact of this book along with an overt amount of violence.
This book is a very freaky! Women standing up to the patriarchy and feminism, though ❤ I definitely agree about certain men treating women this way. Basically, in a way that says we as women should be quiet and docile. We should be good girls and just swallow the pill whole, literally and figuratively.
The story follows Caroline in 2004 and her daughter, Lila, in 2019. Their stories with this beast who represents the demeaning men of the world are told in tandem. It’s very easy to see similarities and notice the differences in the two and that makes the story even more interesting.
This is a great serial killer thriller tale with a twist and I recommend it especially if you can withstand the blood and gore, animal violence and death and some disturbing imagery both sexual and not.
Seriously if you love Reylo fanfic or just Reylo or just Adam Freaking Driver … Just do me a favor and read this and tell me what you think!!!
So, I talked to a few people who did not enjoy the slow burn, did not think it was smutty enough and also, did not love the ongoing miscommunication and misunderstanding.
However, it’s Reylo so I thought it fit and yes, it is GLORIOUS!!! Lol 🤣
This book is outstanding. A great piece of work. I have read the first 400 pages as a sampler Arc but I’m rereading super slow and just taking it all in. I’ll probably be slowly getting through this for another month.
So excited to read this! Just got into the first few chapters yesterday and it’s caught my interest. Looking forward to reading more today!
I love Marie Lu with all my heart and I do not understand how these beautiful books and amazing story are not more popular! This is the sequel to Skyhunter and it’s great. Basically war and monster like creatures and steel wings … it’s cool.
So basically that’s it! If you have read any of these please message me with spoiler free thoughts!!!
I am not great with new years resolutions, but I’d love to focus on only reading what I really want to read this year! I would like to embrace my inner fantasy romance goddess… and chill!
I am currently focusing on finishing the sequel to The Ravens. So far I love it! The Monarchs is a great continuation of this world and it will be out on January 11th!!
I am excited to begin a new year! It’s not exactly a clean slate but it’s an opportunity to gain some motivation and give certain things in my life a better chance of success. Wishing everyone a great start to 2022!
