Our Dark Duet
Our Dark Duet | V. E. Schwab
The sequel - and conclusion - to Victoria Schwab's instant #1 New York Times bestseller, This Savage Song. Kate Harker is a girl who isn't afraid of the dark. She's a girl who hunts monsters. And she's good at it. August Flynn is a monster who can never be human. No matter how much he once yearned for it. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost. Nearly six months after Kate and August were first thrown together, the war between the monsters and the humans is a terrifying reality. In Verity, August has become the leader he never wished to be, and in Prosperity, Kate has become the ruthless hunter she knew she could be. When a new monster emerges from the shadows - one who feeds on chaos and brings out its victim's inner demons - it lures Kate home, where she finds more than she bargained for. She'll face a monster she thought she killed, a boy she thought she knew, and a demon all her own.

I finished this book literally three minutes before my class started, and I was trying very hard not to break down. This book was so beautifully written, and I bet someone could cry just because of how V.E Schwab uses her words. All I'm going to say now is that V.E Schwab truly is becoming one of my favourite authors.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

I don‘t know how to say everything I‘m feeling but I‘m trying. I loved this book and it‘s characters with my whole heart and rooted for them through the entirety of the story. I think that‘s the reason I care so much and went through so many emotions in the span of a few chapters, a few pages, a few words. The closest I can describe this emotion is pain. But a kind that, though it hurts, leaves you with a kind of love and understanding.
5⭐️

Lovelylottereader I don‘t know if that makes sense, but I hope it does. At least somewhat. 2mo

Of course, there was no going back—time only moved forward—but people could change.
For worse.
And for better.
It wasn‘t easy. The world was complicated. Life was hard. And so often, living hurt.
So make it worth the pain.

Progress was being made, but August was coming to realize that there would always be cracks in the surface, shadows in the light, a hundred degrees of grays between black and white.

Mourning was its own kind of music—the sound of so many hearts, of so many breaths, of so many standing together.

“I know it hurts,” she said. “So make it worth the pain.”
“How?”
“By not letting go,” she said softly. “By holding on, to anger, or hope, or whatever it is that keeps you fighting.”
You, he thought.

“Maybe there are other versions, other lives, but this one‘s ours. It‘s all we‘ve got.”

Kate met his gaze. “That‘s the only way to do it.”

Some of my favourite books to read are duologies. They're perfect for when one book isn't enough but a trilogy is too much.

Featured here are the duologies I read this month.

PS 2022 Q1 is just about to end but I've already read more books this year than last year. 🙌 Gotta increase that reading goal.

I didn't want it to end. Why did it have to end? I felt so lost even before the elegy.

What a haunting read.
