Do you have some authors that are hit and miss for you? I do have some authors that seem to never miss for me (Rick Riordan, David Arnold, VE Schwab, Elizabeth Acevedo, Leigh Bardugo to name a few) There are some that I finally just gave up on as not being for me (Sarah J. Maas, Victoria Aveyard) and then there are the middle roaders. I *always* read their books knowing full well that it could go one way or the other for me. (Maggie Stiefvater, Marie Lu) Obviously I don’t expect to love everything any one single author puts out, I’m just saying that some authors have been really consistent for me and some are always a wild card. Holly Black is one of my wildcard authors. Some of her books I really enjoy and some of them were so disappointing to me. I recently was gifted “Tithe” (thank you @simonteen ) with it’s new jacket. (It was released first in 2002) and I’m tempted to give it a read and see how Holly Black’s writing may have evolved over the years and check out this story. I checked out the reviews on GR and they are all over the place. And since my own feelings on her writing are all over the place I found that those reviews probably wouldn’t be helpful to me. haha. I just have to go in and try it myself. Have you read this book? How did you enjoy it compared to her other popular works? Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother's rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms - a struggle that could very well mean her death
