Leo sobre todo autoras de fantasía y romance, tanto adulto como juvenil, pero no exclusivamente. La verdad es que no le hago ascos a ningún tipo de género. Lo único que le pido a mis lecturas es que no sean machistas, racistas, tránsfobas, etc. Mis autoras favoritas son Louise O'Neill y Joy McCullough.

Review of 'empire of storms' on 'Storygraph'

5 stars

I love this series so much. The plotting is done masterfully so that when the reveals come, everything makes sense. The character development and the romances are all so well done as well. Some scenes are really tense and the action is pretty much non stop. There is always something happening. I cannot recommend this series enough

I love the writing style, and I think parts of the commentary on the climate crisis are great. However, that's about it. I didn't like the plot and the romances are insta-love. 

I think it's a shame, because I loved the first few chapters, with the way Juliette's thoughts are expressed. But as soon as the plot started, it quickly lost my interest.

Emma (2014, Alfred A. Knopf Canada) 2 stars

Review of 'Emma' on 'Storygraph'

2 stars

When I started it, I was very hopeful that I would like it, because it seemed like the author understood Austen's Emma. The tone was very sarcastic, and it dealt mainly with the flaws of Mr. Woodhouse and Emma herself. However, as the story progressed, I was more and more disappointed.

<spoiler>Emma is a terrible person, there is nothing redeemable about her. In fact, in the end, when she supposedly understood the hurt she caused, she keeps being extremely selfish, and only tries to set up Harriet and Robert Martin so she can have Knightley to herself.

Emma and Harriet's whole relationship is weirdly presented here. Emma actively dislikes Harriet, yet decides to help her anyway. But any time they are together, Emma complains about how much she dislikes Harriet, so why would she? Their relationship is also weirdly sexual, to the point where I thought this was a …

Wow this one blew me away. The series keeps getting better and better. Everything about it worked. Even characters I didn't care for in previous installments won me over. Every single POV worked for me, it's fantastic. <spoiler>I especially liked how in this one there are so many relationships and friendships between women, relying on each other and caring for each other, even with women who had been presented as antagonists before.</spoiler> I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Review of 'Gideon the Ninth' on 'Storygraph'

I loved Gideon as a character and her relationship with Harrow. But that's about it. The book is written in a very confusing way. For example, all the characters are dumped at once into your lap without any sort of introduction, and it's hard to know what's happening in particular scenes. <spoiler> Because of this, it was impossible for me to connect with any character other than Gideon and Harrow, so I really didn't care as they died... and by the time all the revelations came I was so bored I didn't care either. I also think the ending was terrible.</spoiler>

Heir of Fire (2015) 4 stars

Review of 'Heir of Fire' on 'Storygraph'

4 stars

Every book I enjoy more than the last. <spoiler> I love Celaena's character development. Even though I really liked Celaena/Chaol in the previous book, I love their developments apart from each other. Chaol couldn't truly love her the way she is and she is moving past Celaena to becone Aelin. I love that nothing is set in stone.

I thought it was obvious Sorscha was a spy but I enjoyed her romance with Dorian, even if in the end she was more of a narrative device to get Dorian to where he is now. 

I'm on the Celaena/Rowan train at full speed.

The only part I didn't love were Manon's chapters. She was so disconnected from the rest of it that I just didn't care.</spoiler>

The more I think about it, the more I like it. It's sort of a transition book. Its function is mainly to put everyone in …

Review of 'Recursión (Spanish Edition)' on 'Storygraph'

4 stars

This was a wild ride. When I open a Crouch novel, I never know where it's going to take me. I loved it. His writing reads as if you were watching a film, it's very fast-paced and dynamic. I think it's really cleverly written and I have no idea how he comes up with these amazing ideas. It's a complex science-fiction story that makes complete sense the whole time. I really really recommend this one. 

Since You've Been Gone (2014) 2 stars

Review of "Since You've Been Gone" on 'Storygraph'

2 stars

It's not terrible, but it was really boring, in my opinion. <spoiler>I know that at the end they let us see how Sloane had her own problems going on, but she wasn't a very good friend to Emily at times. For example, she left her alone to go with her boyfriend, tried to force her to do things she didn't want to do (like using a fake ID), etc., so I didn't care much about the friendship. </spoiler>

The Testaments (2020, Penguin Random House) 4 stars

When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, …

Review of 'Testaments' on 'Storygraph'

4 stars

The influence from the show is clear in this, and I really liked that. Even though it is its own thing, it feels complimentary to the TV show, I feel like fans of the show would take a lot from this too and viceversa. 

I liked the protagonists in this much more than Offred in the original. Offred's narration is very detached, which is understandable, she's also trying to protect herself from feeling or thinking too much about her situation, but that doesn't make for an engaging reading experience. I felt a stronger connection to these characters. 

<spoiler>I think the three different POVs are very smart, since you have the girl who's been raised in Gilead, the girl who's been raised outside of Gilead and one of the founding Aunts, so you get very different perspectives on the situation. I loved Aunt Lydia's POV, she's such a complex character, and …

Review of "The Handmaid's Tale" on 'Storygraph'

3 stars

This is an excellent book. I read the first half in one go and only put it down because it was really late and I had to get up early the next morning. I had trouble sleeping because I couldn't put it out of my mind. I then spent the next day thinking about it. So it's a book that haunts you. However, the second part of the book didn't have the same effect on me. I didn't connect so much with it, and the gut punches weren't as effective.

I still recommend this to everyone, obviously. But it's not an easy read. There was a moment when I had to put the book down and take a couple of minutes before I took it up again (the visit to the doctor, if you're curious) because I was so disgusted by what was happening that I couldn't keep reading. I …

Review of 'Little Fires Everywhere' on 'Storygraph'

Ng does it again! I LOVED Everything I Never Told You because of the writing style, and this is no different. I feel like she stepped up her game as well. This story is not just about one family, but about a different set of families whose lives are intertwined, sometimes literally and sometimes thematically. One thing I love about her books is that she always manages to make me empathize with everyone in the story. She treats very complex issues with a lot of respect and nuance. There are no bad guys in her novels, simply people making choices, which sometimes might be questionable, but as a reader you always understand where they come from. This woman is a genius.

Crown of Midnight (2014) 4 stars

Review of 'Crown of Midnight' on 'Storygraph'

4 stars

This was so much better than Throne of Glass! Celaena's character development is great, and the romance has greatly improved. There are some scenes particularly in regards to the romance that are really beautifully written. The plot is so much more interesting as well. There has been a jump in quality here, so I can't wait to see what the rest of the series will be like. 

<spoiler>I'm not sure I'm still Team Chaol, though. I loved their blooming romance here, up until Nehemia's death, when I didn't think their relationship could ever survive, so I lost interest in it, I guess. However, at the end, when Celaena told him she would have always chosen him, I felt things. So we'll see. I'm full on Team Celaena at the moment, though.</spoiler>
