Reading & Watching


  • Katie
    • Read The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee.  This is  YA historical fiction with too much going on for my taste.  This book had too many tropes, plus then tried to add a paranormal element that was just sort of hokey.  I would have liked the story better if it had 1-2 less tropes.
    • Read Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray. This is the third book in the Diviners series.  I felt that it did not move the story along very much. They are still chasing the “man in the stovepipe hat” and dealing with ghosts.
    • Currently reading The Renegades by Marissa Meyer.  This is a new YA superhero series by the author. I am feeling very meh about it and might not finish.  It seems to be a combination with Batman (DC comics) elements and Marvel comic characters kinda put together.
