Hello bookish friends,
Victoria Schwab has captured my heart and I cannot wait to read her adult fantasy books. City Of Ghosts was such a sweet read and I am looking forward to the next instalment.
I am so glad that this book was still rated highly by me (4 stars) because sometimes authors who delve into children’s books don’t have the authentic voice that is needed to pull it off. However Victoria Schwab certainly encapsulated the children’s author within her narrative and I can certainly say that it is a great read.
It isn’t mind blowing but the themes and plot is interesting as I’ve never read anything like it before. It gave me coraline vibes throughout which is a great thing for me.
I always love a creepy children’s book full of ghouls, ghosts, death and life and this holds everything. Even at the end there is an ominous presence that something will continue into the next book.
It was a lovely contemporary gothicish read.
As always, happy reading xxx
