I’m like books that are allegorical or alternative or layered. I enjoy books whose main purpose are to make the readers think in a new way. I couldn’t stand this book. I barely finished it and just skimmed the last few pages. It presented some interesting ideas about life, but it’s way too wordy.
Biggest surprise of the year:
Favorite new to you or debut author:
I’ve only read one book by her so far, The Fifth Season, but the world building, characters, and timeline were so amazing that I immediately looked up the author on Goodreads and plan to read the rest of The Broken Earth series and start on her other books as well.

Val from Sunbolt

Aza from Turtles All the Way Down by: John Green
