I am not usually one to follow the #BookTok social media world because it can be a scary place to visit sometimes. Book lovers can be…ahem, quite vocal about their likes and dislikes which can lead to a whole slew of drama that I don’t want to participate in.
That being said, I sometimes look to them for popular and trending book titles when I don’t know what to read.
I am averaging 2-3 books a week at the moment and sometimes I finish one book without another one waiting in the queue, and then I panic at 1 am when I am settling in bed and I realize I have nothing to read.
Because you know that I can’t go to bed early, even though I should.
This is when I visit the realm of BookTok so that I can maybe get some quick ideas.
I don’t always believe the rave reviews so I have to pay a visit to Goodreads before jumping in. For example, all the hype over Colleen Hoover’s books over the past few years.
I don’t like them, at all.
So with all the raving and people talking about her books it made me lose a little faith in the communities recommendations that it would appeal to my tastes.
BUT, I have noticed the hype about ACOTR (A Court of Thorns and Roses) series which I read a few years ago and really enjoyed, I thought I would give the newest hype book a chance.
Incoming the book Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros which literally just came out and is already propelled to the top.
I finished it last night and it was a great read.
I have the Kindle edition because it seems to be sold out everywhere, but I would love a physical copy because the book is beautiful with the little dragon art on the sides.
It’s labelled as a New Adult book even though it has a lot of YA characteristics, but since there is some adult content it gets bumped up I guess?
Is New Adult even a genre?
It was a longish book, over 500 pages but pretty exciting from start to finish making you wish it was longer.
The downside is that it is the first book in a series, the upside is that it doesn’t leave on a total devastating cliffhanger (more like surprise/shock), and the next book comes out in November which isn’t THAT far away.
Even though it is going to feel like it.
I almost want to set myself up as a book reviewer so I can get an ARC of the book.
I’m totally serious about that.
So now I don’t know what to read again, and I might just have to go search BookTok once more and hope for a second win.
If you like YA/adult fantasy books with some slow burn and spice, and a lot of action with an interesting and exciting plot that keeps you reading then you may like this.
And dragons, you need to like dragons.
Fun fact: I have a tattoo of a dragon on my back shoulder. I like dragons a lot.
I actually might read it again because when you fly through it the first time you often miss things that you catch during a slower second read.
