Nevernight
Nevernight | Jay Kristoff
In a world where the suns almost never set, a woman gains entry to a school of infamous assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers that destroyed her family. Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father's failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she wanders a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and its thugs. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the hearth of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined. Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic-the Red Church. Deadly trials await her within the Church's halls: blades and poisons, treachery and death. If she survives to initiation, she'll be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and be one step closer to the only thing she desires. Revenge. Nevernight will come on the heels of Kristoff's latest YA book, a collaboration with Amie Kaufman from Knopf Books for Young Readers, Illuminae. Knopf is planning a major publicity blitz and featuring Illuminae as its lead title for Fall, on sale October 20th. The marketing and publicity campaign include a multi-city USA tour in the fall, major outreach at consumer and industry events, a national paid advertising campaign, and extensive publicity outreach.

Sorry #LMPBC group! I have to bail on this book. The writing is so small, that I‘m dreading picking it up. It makes me feel like I need to go to the eye doctor for glasses.

Also, every time I get into the flow of the story, there is a footnote and I have to stop and get back into the flow. It‘s annoying. 🤣

This is also the 2nd time I‘ve tried to read this book and I‘m just not feeling it. I don‘t think this author is for me.

Chrissyreadit Oh no!!! 4mo
TheAromaofBooks I struggled in Part 1. The footnotes decreased in Part 2 so things got better, but all that tiny print in Part 1 was really hard to get through!! 4mo
TheRiehlDeal Maybe give it another shot on audio? 🤷‍♂️ At least you won‘t have to struggle with the small text. 3mo
BookwormAHN The tiny print is ridiculous. 3mo

This was my May #LMPBC read. It took me a little while to get into - the book starts slow and Kristoff uses copious footnotes in Part 1 so a LOT of tiny print!! But after that the pace began to pick up and I found myself really invested in these characters and what was happening. The world-building was vivid and engaging and I found the concept of sand krakens to be delightfully terrifying. This is a little darker than my usual fare and I'm not ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) sure I'll finish the trilogy, but it was still a solid pick. Keep in mind this is definitely adult fantasy rather than YA.

@Laughterhp I'll let you know when this one is headed your way!!

Okay, @Clwojick 's #BigJuneReadathon has challenged me already to assess where I am with various challenges/goals for the year. I'm doing pretty well at some of them - I'm steadily working my way through classics via #BookSpin and have checked quite a few 600pg+ books off as well. I've been pretty committed to #Roll100 and my #TBRDeckofCards but realized that where I am getting bogged down is SERIES! Somehow I'm already in the middle of five, and⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) my “on deck“ books include the first books in eight more!! So the windowsill pile is reduced both because I did finish seven books on vacation, but also because I removed those eight “first“ books because I won't start them until I finish another series. My #WeeklyForecast involves finishing the tagged book for #LMPBC, and also prioritizing Book Lovers and Book of Night as those are both due back at the library. My #BigJuneReadathon 6mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) goals are to finish two series and to complete my reading goals from past months, excluding all the first books. This week I'm also hoping to get back on track with my chapter-a-day reads - I abandoned them all when I was out of town (especially you, Scarlet!) but am ready to get back on the bandwagon and see what happens!! More books coming to the windowsill for next week - I can't believe June is Wednesday!!
@Cinfhen

Cinfhen Woohoo!!! #Goals 🍾🙌🏻🥳 and I CAN see out the window!!! 6mo
Clwojick Great goals! Series are such a tough one for me. I‘m so bad at starting new series on the daily, and never going back to finish old ones. 🤭 6mo
TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick - I get a little obsessive about reading the series in order, so I get frustrated when I have too many on the go at once! 😂 6mo

Finished - and sending TODAY - I think this was a different spin on some horror, bad ass teen, girls kick ass , fantasy tropes. It reminded me faintly of Red Rising. I liked the world and character building- I thought at times it had the potential for depth of a more “adult” complex book and felt like a YA/Adult hybrid. #lmpbc

TheAromaofBooks My only real problem is that I read that trilogy and the Aurora Cycle at almost the same time and even though they have completely different plots, they both involved space and time jumping and a group of snarky friends so they have somehow mushed together in my brain into one giant story 😂 8mo

I struggled with this at first (I really disliked the footnotes and the sarky teen tone), but I was into it by the end, and I will read the rest of the trilogy so I will rate it a pick. It was a slow burn though!

I loved the world building and all the characters. Mia is a well fleshed out awesome female lead. We have Hogwarts style school only for assassins not wizards lol! It‘s dark, it‘s brutal, it‘s bloody, it‘s vengeful and it‘s lusty!!! Huzzah! The magic systems however are bit wonky to understand just yet, but hoping that will become more defined as I go.

I really enjoyed this world and the way the author builds it. The only complaint that I have is that everything the characters say is in sarcasm and it really makes then sound like immature children. Other than that I really enjoyed the story and plan to finish the trilogy.

Another long-standing one off my TBR. This was a lot of fun! The audio was a bit difficult to get into, as the author uses a lot of repetition. I had to rewind a few times just to make sure I wasn‘t hallucinating and the app wasn‘t glitching. I‘ll probably try to read the next one though.

Thanks to all of you raving about Empire of the Vampire for making this happen finally lol

#LittensDressedInBlood #Day15 #PetSematery I‘ve chosen this book for today‘s prompt because of Mr Kindly, the murderous shadow cat pet of our MC Mia Corvere. After barely surviving the murder of her family, Mia is taken in by an ex assassin & puts herself on the path of The Red Church(assassin school!)& vengeance with Mr Kindly giving advice along the way. It may have a young MC but this is no YA, lots of blood, curses & smut. I loved it❤️

This was ok the first time I read it and it's still just ok. The world is great, the story is very interesting but I really don't get the hype. I found myself bored for a large portion of it and the footnotes being forcefully inserted into the audiobook made me lose interest pretty quick. I understand why it was done (how else do you listen to footnotes?) but I lost a lot of the story

A brutal, dark fantasy with echoes of Game of Thrones, The Witcher and Shadow & Bone. Mia is a lead heroine you root for and with her daemon side-kick Mister Kindly at her side you see her start to take shape as a deadly assassin. With a full range of characters of all shapes & sizes Kristoff is carving out a brilliant world so I look forward to the rest of the series. The only quibble, the needless, distracting footnotes, stick with the story.

It took me a few chapters to get used to the writing style, but once I did, I went on quite a ride. I loved all the annotations at the bottom of the pages and I loved Mia and Mister Kindley. The entire story was dark and thrilling, and I'm reaching for the second book.

I love all the foot notes, but this book really dragged on about the schooling of the assassins. I would have preferred for the author to cut out about 200 pages of that and focus on advancing the plot. Mia‘s family was brutally murdered and she swore revenge. She pledged herself to the church of the Dark Mother, but will she be able to survive the schooling? 3/5 stars, I will read the next one and hope it‘s more streamlined.

Book 114 - audio

I picked this one entirely for the cover art.

When the story started and I was not so sure about my choice. It's very graphic. Sex, violence, death, language, all there, all graphic.

But I was intrigued by the mix of death and the irreverent narrator and I stuck with it.

About half way through I decided that if a female Harry Potter went to Pratchett's Assasins Guild instead of Hogwarts, this would be her story.
