Do you like fast or slower paced stories? I think the internet is trying to tell me that I like “slow” books. I’ve noticed a pattern in the last year. SO many times I’ve looked at reviews of a book that I really enjoyed (this is one way for me to find reviewers I have similar taste with) and the reviews will say “this book was so slow” and I’m like “wait, was it?” Haha. . ⚔️ “The Guinevere Deception” arrived in my December @parnassusnext rep box (monthly YA subscription for signed first editions.) Since they announce their books in advance, I had been eagerly waiting for its arrival and started it immediately. (I did half reading half audiobook. Thank you to @prhaudio for providing me with access to a review audio copy) . ⚔️ I love King Arthur, Merlin, the legend, all the characters associated with it… I will always read anything related to his name— so I ate up this story pretty greedily. I love Kiersten White’s twists on gender and storyline in her past books and this one was no different for me. I was invested in Guinevere’s emotional journey and really loved the twist on her relationships with others. I thought it was a great combination of bits from the original legend and White’s imagination. In hindsight, I can agree with the reviewers who thought this was slow, and I wish we had gotten a few more solid answers about some things in book one, but for me personally, these things just didn’t bother me. haha. I’m ready to continue with this trilogy and am looking forward to the next book. I have a lot of hopes for White’s Guinevere and Arthur and loved the whole atmosphere! . ⚔️ Also… I’m in love with Mordred. Ugh. Byyeeeeee. . ⚔️ #theguineveredeception #kierstenwhite #retelling #kingarthur #merlin #medievalfantasy #genderbent #bookreview #amreading #yalit #ireadya
