Ninth House is Worth a Pledge

Ninth House

Ninth House

By: Leigh Bardugo

Ninth House was probably my most anticipated book of the year. It’s one of my favorite authors making the jump from YA to Adult. Although I admit I find that line really blurred already especially in Bardugo’s case.

Strong but flawed heroine, ghosts, magic, creepy towns and an ages old murder mystery mixed in with a current murder was right up my alley and perfect for this time of year.

Grade: A

King of Scars was in my top three most anticipated books of 2019 and it didn’t let me down! Though that ending…

Just a warning there are spoilers in here for the Shadow and Bone trilogy and for Six of Crows (especially in terms of fatalities in those books.) So if you were planning on reading them and don’t want to be spoiled don’t read this.

I also think you probably should read, at least the Shadow and Bone books, if you want to to get the full feeling of King of Scars.

But in the end I’m thrilled that I did and it’s so beautifully illustrated if you’re at all interested in it I’d definitely suggest picking up the hardback version.

Grade: B

This Wonder Woman tale by one of my favorite authors was definitely on my most anticipated lists. So I picked it up immediately upon its release last week and I have to say I’m a little torn. The story is about how a teenage Diana saves a girl from drowning but that girl is a blood descendant Warbringer. Not will she bring war she tends to cause conflict and strife wherever she goes and her presence on the island is destroying it.
