    Well, there it is: my most disappointing read of the year. I couldn?t have imagined this book would be it. I read Tessa Gratton?s The Queens of Innis Lear earlier this year and truly, absolutely loved it. It is one of my absolute favorite books of the year, or even the past cou...

    LO AM. Es perfecto. Una de las prosas ms hermosas, poticas y mgicas que he ledo. En serio, toda la magia de este libro, que es bien, bien primitiva y llena de poesa, viene de la mano de la narracin. La historia es tremendamente interesante, y del romance mejor ni hable...

    This is a really hard book for me to review. I'm going to do my best, but it's a book I think you really need to experience for yourself. In the village of Three Graces, no one is sick. The village is perfect: crops never die, no one dies unnaturally, people heal from horrific injur...

    DNF at 60% HOW I WANTED TO LOVE THIS BOOK. I love the cover and the synopsis is magical and I couldn?t wait to get to it. Sadly, it was so boring. I really liked the three main characters: Mair, Arthur, and Rhun. They?re all in love with each other and the dynamic of their r...

    This is such a weird and beautiful book. Friends, I am struggling to find the words to articulate how much I adored this book. While the premise of a hundreds-year old pacts that provide prosperity to a town in return for sacrifice isn't new, I found Strange Grace to be refreshing and ...

    Thanks so much to Simon and Schuster Canada for providing me with an eARC of this via NetGalley! Strange Grace has such a compelling, eerie premise: every seven years, a boy is sent into the Devil's Forest as a sacrifice to allow the village and its occupants to remain safe and p...

    I really liked this. I still thought it could have been even better and also creepier but this was just right up my alley. I liked especially the romance but wish even that would have been explored a little more. But oh man, huge improvement from Blood Magic. ...

    I have a lot of feelings about this book. Strange Grace has been one of my most anticipated 2018 releases all year?I love these dark, witchy fantasy stories, and as soon as I saw Tessa mention it on her twitter back at the start of the year, I wanted to pre-order it right then and th...

    While I did like a lot of things about this, I just could not for the life of me wrap my poor, contemporary loving brain around all of the fantastical elements in this enough to really enjoy it. Womp :( (Side-note: I definitely think that if you at all enjoy fantasy even just a litt...

    This was a very interesting story and strange would be a great word to use, because strange things are awesome! My favorite kinds of stories involve forests, ones where there are things hidden within. I thought the author did a good job with the love between the three characters. It...

    Strange Grace is a high fantasy novel featuring a polyamorous relationship, terrible bargains, and the creepiest forest since Uprooted. Which means, of course, that it was exactly my thing. I read it in less than a day - thanks to rivetedlit I could read it legally for free and not fo...

    Alright. Strange Grace is still confounding me. Now I am even waffling on my star rating. Admittedly, there is a lot to think about with this one. The story itself, although beautifully written IMO, is very dense and very heavy. I feel like I am still struggling to get out from under i...
