What was the last book hype you gave in to? I gave into the hype and bought a copy of Four Dead Queens and my feelings are all over the place. It’s hard for me to judge a standalone fantasy-type book (although I think this one lends itself more to sci-fi) because between the world building and all the relationships that need building, some times you have to just swallow that things are going to happen fast. (Unless it’s Priory of the Orange Tree😂) . In alternating chapters between the perspectives of Keralie (a thief) and the Four Queens, we learn that Keralie finds herself entangled a conspiracy that leaves all four queens of Quadara dead. . I will say that I never got around to liking Keralie. She made it hard for me to like the first half of the book. Her cocky and always-joking/snide comment personality might have been fun in a small doses, but for me it just left me weary of her. The perspective I really enjoyed was of the queens. I enjoyed their voices and trying to untangle this murder mystery from the POVs of the victims. . Just when I was about to throw my hands up at this book and say that it wasn’t for me, the second half started to really pick up. An element that I did not see coming came up and debunked one of my biggest theories and I was pleasantly surprised at the change of direction. I found myself totally engrossed in the story in the final chapters and unable to put the book down as the plot began to unfold. . I’m not going to rave about this one, but I’m also not sorry that I read it. Whenever a book can grab my attention like that, I consider it a worth it reading experience. And I really was invested in those final chapters as everything went down. It’s definitely a book that I’d pass along to people who enjoy lots of character sass and teens who are interested in murder mysteries. . . #fourdeadqueens #astridscholte #bookreview #bookreviewer #maps #fromabove #flatlay #amreading #bibliophile #booknerdigans #bookgram #bookaesthetic #ourmoodydays #cozyvibes #bookcommunity #bookworm #ilovebooks #bookish #instaread #booksbooksbooks #vscobooks #bookdragon #murdermystery
