All About Books

A book blog, mostly touring foreign worlds of fantasy novels with occasional detours into space and explorations of magical realism, featuring book reviews, random bookish thoughts and hand lettered quotes.

Flashback: 04/01/14 – 04/20/14




+ The Flight of the Silvers (Silvers #1) by Daniel Price [5/5]
This one was soooo good! I loved it. A great SciFi novel about alternate worlds and people with awesome powers.

+ Soul Screamers Vol. 4 by Rachel Vincent [5/5]
I’m still sad that this series is over now but it got a great ending that made me both sad and happy at the same time.

+ Unwrapped Sky by Rjurik Davidson [3/5]
I was very excited about this one but sadly didn’t like it a lot. (my full review)

+ The Lost (The Lost #1) by Sarah Beth Durst [3/5]
An interesting story that I liked but didn’t love. Especially the main character bothered me and that I only found out afterwards that this is the start of a trilogy.

+ Strangelets by Michelle Gagnon [3/5]
A decent SciFi novel whose characters are rather flat.

+ Days of Blood and Starlight (DoSaB #2) by Laini Taylor [5/5]
Even better than the first time I read it. Zuze is the best! I can’t wait to read the last book.

+ Thief’s Magic (Millennium’s Rule #1) by Trudi Canavan [3/5]
Two POVs. One was awesome, one was boring.

+ Lexicon by Max Barry [5/5]
Awesome and not at all what I expected!

+ After the End (After the End #1) by Amy Plum [4/5]
It doesn’t have such charming characters like her first series but it was a surprisingly good story and different than what I thought this would be like. A mean cliffhanger though.

+ The Wizard’s Promise (Hannah Duology #1) by Cassandra Rose Clarke [2/5]
I guess me and Cassandra just don’t work out.  I gave her a second chance after reading The Mad Scientist’s Daughter but this story wasn’t for me either.

  • Oh je, da hattest du scheinbar recht viele Enttäuschungen diesen Monat dabei, aber auch ein paar gute Überraschungen. Days of Blood and Starlight fand ich ja leichter schwach im Vergleich zum ersten Teil und ich hoffe das der dritte Teil da nochmal so einiges rausschlagen kann. Bin da aber guter Hoffnung, da ja nun endlich dieser große Clash zwischen den zwei Welten folgen müsste.

    • Och, 3 Sterne Bücher sind für mich noch lange keine Entäuschung. Hätten besser sein können aber schlecht fand ich sie alle nicht.
      Ich fand ja den zweiten Teil von DoSaB viel besser als das erste Buch daher hoffe ich mal dass das so weiter geht :D

  • AHH you just reminded me that I have to get LEXICON by Max Berry..I had that book as one of my Waiting on Wednesdays and I still haven’t read it yet. Enjoy all your books!
