King of Thorns (The Broken Empire #2)
26, Apr

Rating: 2.5/5 Stars

A lot of reader claimed King of Thorns to be the best out of the Broken Empire trilogy, it pained me to do so but I can’t agree with that notion.

Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire #1)
20, Apr

Rating: 3/5 Stars

Here it is, I finally got around to this famous Grimdark novel.

Norse Mythology
17, Apr

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

Gilgamesh from Mesopotamian religion, Izanagi from Japanese creation myth and Zeus from Greek myth. These are a few popular figures from few of many mythologies around the globe. I’m here to let you know my thoughts on one of the most popular and well known mythology, Norse Mythology told by Neil Gaiman, with Odin, Thor, and Loki at the center of the lore.

The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastard #3)
16, Apr

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

A great sequel but pales in comparison compared to the previous two book.

Red Seas Under Red Skies (Gentleman Bastard #2)
13, Apr

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

Contrary to the popular opinion that Red Seas Under Red Skies, the 2nd book in the Gentleman Bastard Sequence series, is weaker than its predecessor, I’m more inclined to say that it’s not inferior nor superior but it’s equally great with The Lies of Locke Lamora in a different way. It retained some elements that made the first book rose to its fame and at the same time, replace some of them with some new factors to the series.

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

Double Fuckdamn…

-For postponing reading this book for a really long time. 

-For underestimating Scott Lynch’s capability to create such a strong debut novel.

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle #2)
05, Apr

Rating: 4/5 Stars

The Wise Man’s Fear had all the potential to be better than The Name of the Wind and although this is still a great book, putting it in comparison with its prequel show how this one fell short in quality.

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle #1)
30, Mar

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

As an avid adult fantasy reader, out of all books that I’ve been recommended to, The Name of the Wind has always been the most recommended to me. Google, Goodreads, book reviewing sites, 9gag, even some people who doesn’t read a lot of fantasy books, they all praised the series and now that I’ve read it, it’s in my opinion while it’s slightly overrated, there’s no doubt that this is a fantastic adult high (not Epic, there’s a difference there) fantasy book.

Red Sister (Book of the Ancestor #1)
25, Mar

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Bloody, consecration, philosophical, multitude of female casts, lesbian relationship and badass warrior nuns, Red Sister has been a wonderful surprise for me. After the struggle I had with the first 25% of the book, it’s a wonder how the rest of the book could made me love it but oh nun (ha ha ha) it did.

Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection (The Stormlight Archive #2.5)
21, Mar

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Arcanum Unbounded is without a doubt a must read for any Sanderson’s Cosmere fans. Every book in the Cosmere has always been my comfort read, I can always count on them to spark my love for reading again and this Cosmere collection of novellas and short stories holds true to that statement, it can be defined as the apt complementary to my comfort food.
