Brigid Kemmerer has hit the nail right on the head yet again! To be completely honest I didn't know A THING about this book going into it. I saw that she had released the first book in a new series & I bought it, no questions asked. It did not disappoint!
Overall I just couldn't keep going with this one. I planned on giving it to 20% but I was forcing myself to read & it was taking forever! I read for about 10 minutes and I was still on the 5% mark on the eBook. I am very much a fan of DNFing books now. Why should I waste time read books that aren't for me when I could be reading a book I love!
This was exactly the creepy book I was looking for. Considering this was her first horror book I am definitely impressed & also now really curious to pick up one of her mysteries! Highly recommend if you are after a gripping horror book with plenty of twists & turns but also an interesting background to the world.
As always, with non-fiction works I will not be rating this one. As I've explained in the past it feels wrong to rate a non-fiction book when this is someones actually story! So instead this review will focus on the writing, my experience reading it & the illustrations.
This was the most unsatisfying ending I have ever read! I enjoyed the book up until the the 2nd or 3rd last chapter. It went from a 3.5/4 starts to a 2.5 stars within a couple sentences. If you have read this book you will know exactly what I'm talking about... I will do a little spoilery section at the bottom of this post so I can rant about it!
While I enjoyed Six Crimson Cranes & I liked it enough to finish it I was left underwhelmed. Let's be real, the cover is STUNNING, and I've seen it around a tonne on insta and such but I haven't really seen any reviews until now. Looking at the reviews I don't seem to be the only one with this opinion however the reasoning differs a lot! Some people had issues with pacing & plot but loved the characters whereas others like me had issue with the characters...
Sweet Jesus I left this too long to read! This Mortal Coil was one of my favourite reads of 2018! I reviewed it HERE if you want to check it out! I absolutely loved it! It was chaotic, unpredictable & extremely gripping. I read book 2 not long after it's release and it was also amazing! Book 3 I got my hands on just after release and then promptly left it sitting on my TBR for over a year and a half! I think partly because I knew I had to be fully ready to read this as the books are just insane but also I didn't want it to come to an end. BUT! I finally did it and oh my god!
