I’ll admit that while I think Holly Black is the coolest and I like the darker vibe she gives to her stories— aside from the Spiderwick series, I haven’t been mega crazy about the other books of hers that I’ve read. (I like them, but they never do that “thing” to me) . So, even though all my book friends with similar reading tastes as me were gushing over it, I still popped over to my library and checked out a copy (well, I waited on a hold list for a few weeks… ha) before deciding I was going to make a permanent spot on my bookshelf for “The Cruel Prince”. . AND? I loved it. I loved the amount of detail Holly put into this story and what she chose to describe. Maybe it was because I like reading about food and clothes that I appreciated the time she took with them. I just know that in my mind I was like, “this is kind of a lot of detail” at the same time I was loving.every.detail. haha. Overall, it was my kind of story. Lots of action and furious stand-offs, sweet revenge and me half choking on anger. Also, the perfect dash of romance for my taste. . I went through several different feelings throughout this story and I’m still sitting on plenty of mixed emotions about the characters and how this story went down. I’m like… do I like you or do I hate you? I can’t even tell. All I know is that I want to know what happens to everyone, I loved the world, and I can’t wait to pick up the next book. . Like I said before, I admire Holly Black’s edgier and darker tone to her stories. She certainly weaves a story that didn’t make any promises and toys with you. I have a lot of hopes, but I’m also not really sure how those hopes may come to pass after all that happened! . How was that for some feelings? All I know is that I would recommend this. It’s brutal and conniving as well as lovely (even if a little predictable at times). I have plenty more I would love to say about it, but I’ve tried to leave anything out that would be spoilery. So if you want to talk Cruel Prince, hit me up. . Anyone else love it? Or did you dislike it? (my sister DNF’d and hated it. Haha) Now I need to buy myself a cool edition! #thecruelprince #hollyblack #bookreview #books
