Review In A Nutshell: Lullaby had a great premise and could have been amazing. Unfortunately, the writing style, pacing, and the characters make this book very disappointing.

 

“I believed creativity to be the expression of the person, who they were inside. Evil didn’t create beauty like this.”

 

Note: This review was initially written for the 1st Edition, released January 2018. After posting, the author had reached out to me and other reviewers to edit the book and republish. The second edition – the version currently for sale, as of February 2018 – has addressed a lot of these issues.  I have increased my rating here to reflect my new rating of her book (but I also left my previous rating), and any issues that were addressed in the new edition have *s next to them to indicate that it is either less of a problem or gone entirely.

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

To avoid spoilers for the first book, I won’t be going into detail on the plot of this series. That said, here is a link to my review of the first book! As you probably know, I’m a die-hard ACOTAR fan, but I will say ACOWAR was my least favorite in the series (-note from the future- that title has now been granted to ACOFAS-). However, that really doesn’t say much because I love this series so much.
