What have I read this week?
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
This is a fantasy novel about a young woman named Nyx, who has been brought up to be the bride of the demon prince who rules her land. I really enjoyed this; I loved the characters and the world, and I liked the way that even though I predicted some of the plot points, it still managed to surprise me. I will definitely read more by this author.
Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee
This is a YA novel about Tash, an asexual teenager who is filming a web series based on Anna Karenina with her best friend. I quite enjoyed this; I found the character of Tash a little annoying, but the book was very readable. I also liked the fact that Tash was asexual; it’s good to see representation for our community. I would probably read more by this author.
