Katerina

There are two things Katerina can't live without; books and chocolate. And since she needs money to acquire them, she decided to become a lawyer (and she still wonders whether this was a good idea). When she's not reading, she keeps wishing she was reading, about wars, wizards, dark princes and great romances. Her favorite genres are Fantasy (both YA and Adult) and Contemporary Romance.

An Enchantment of Ravens 19, Oct

Rating: 3.5 / 5 stars

Genre: Fantasy, Fae, Magic, Young Adult, Romance

After finishing An Enchantment of Ravens, I spent a great amount of time pondering about its rating. On one hand, it was clear to me that it does not deserve 3 stars. It was ideal to make my mind drift and explore uncharted territories, to forget all those tiny and huge daily things that make me lose my sleep. Why not give it 4 stars then, Kat? one could wonder. Well, because I feel that those past months I've matured as a reader - and reviewer - and I came to accept that 3 stars is not a bad rating, and that 4 (and especially 5) stars should be saved for the books I truly enjoy. 3 stars means that it was a pleasant reading experience, but it did not sweep me off my feet. Even though I wanted to so badly.

Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1) 30, Sep

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Genre: Fantasy, Assassins

Nevernight, gentlefriends, is an O, so bloody piece of Art.

Roar (Stormheart, #1) 23, Sep

Rating: 3/5 stars

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Magic, New Adult

I really should stop buying books for their cover.

Although, to be fair, the premise sounded like my cup of tea, and it should have been. It was, mostly. But I feel like I'm slowly (and steadily) turning into a grumpy, bitter old lady who complains about anything and everything and cannot be satisfied, unless her 72 cats do something adorable.
