Few things delight and intrigue me more than mixed reviews

Few things delight and intrigue me more than mixed reviews. Enough negative reviews and more often than not, if I’m being honest, that book will drop off my immediate TBR. And while I love book hype (especially if I’m the one hyping), I often find that I go in more critical than I might have. But give me a book that half my friends didn’t like and the other half are raving about, and I’m more eager than ever to dive in with an open mind. Anyone else like this? “Wicked Saints” is one of the biggest mixed reviewed books on my feed this year. The biggest point in its favor was when it arrived in my @parnassusnext box. (I’m a rep for Parnassus and they send a box each month with a signed first edition YA book) They always pick an amazing book and it arrived right in the middle of some of my friends saying they were “meh” about it. So seeing it in the box immediately pulled a full stop on my writing it off. THEN a slew of wonderful reviews came in from other friends and I immediately knew this was a book I had to read. . ⚔️ My library has it on audio, and my hold is nearly up. So I’ll be listening to it as soon as I get it. Have you already read “Wicked Saints”? What did you think about it? . Synopsis: A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself. A prince in danger must decide who to trust. A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings. Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war. . ⚔️ In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. . #wickedsaints #parnassusnext #ireadya #unboxing #monthlysubscription #subbox #fantasy #amreading #prettybooks #booksofinstagram #booklove #bookphotography #bookster #flatlaystyle #livesimply #bookaesthetic #booknerdigans #ilovebooks #pursuepretty #bookstack #booklove #totalbooknerd #bookislove #bibliophile #subscriptionbox
