      It's been over a month since I read this book and you see, the trouble with writing this review is that it literally always seems easier to just lie facedown on the floor and make inarticulate noises (most of this review could actually be replaced with crying baby noises without huge loss of meaning tbh)Listen. I am a HUGE fan of Jay Kristoff but he needs to go to jail for something. I don’t care what. just like, crimes. I mean why doesn’t he pick on someone his own size?? I genuinely believ [...]

      Inside the BN special edition. Beautiful pictures and some deleted scenes at the end. The girl reached out to the shadows beneath the wagon, gathering them up like a seamstress pulling thread. It was so bright out here, so different from the belly of the Quiet Mountain. But ever so slowly, she stitched the shadows together, weaving them into a cloak. And beneath it, she became little more than a smudge, like a greasy fingerprint on a portrait of the world.Oh Mia, I still love you and your badass [...]

      1.) Nevernight ★★★★★“The heavens grant us only one life, but through books, we live a thousand.”Well, I’m not entirely sure how I’m supposed to function while lying in wait for the third and final book in this series. That last chapter made me feel things that very few books are able to evoke from me. I honestly am not sure how I could possibly string together words to let you guys know how much I loved this book, but I do suppose I should at least try. Godsgrave picks up right [...]

      ladies and gentlefriends, let me introduce you to the cause i now feel like a dead lump living inside a human shell that is incapable of feeling anything else but endless despair and suffering: GODSGRAVE, or, as i call it [incoherent mumbling about how everything was easier before i read this book](apologies in advance for the absolute mess that is this review, but what i'm feeling towards this book can only be described as 'AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA' and i have no [...]

      I don’t know where to begin with this review???I mean I think i’ve already mentioned everything I needed to say in my review of Nevernight…Either way, to recap and reciprocate the points I mentioned in Nevernight’s review, Godsgrave had even more witty banters. more blood. more pain. lots of angst. plentiful twists. the suspense could give you a clean kill, and even more traumatic than its prequel.Tbh the moment I was done with this book, I almost gave into my weak mind telling me I was [...]

      3.5 starsLast year, NEVERNIGHT, the first book in Jay Kristoff's NEVERNIGHT CHRONICLE, was at the top of my Best Books of 2016 list. The writing was brilliant, the story and characters compelling, the world-building was fantastic . . . I was smitten. So I was understandably excited about its sequel GODSGRAVE. *sighs*BUT.The story was still compelling, just not as compelling, the writing was likewise not as brilliant, and the old characters manifested new flaws while several of the new characters [...]

      FULL REVIEW NOW FINALLY POSTEDme? actually sitting down and writing a review? yes lads, it’s happening. and not for some bland ass book, but for my favorite book of ALL TIME, Godsgrave’s been more than two months since I last finished this and oh boy, I’m still processing that ending. like holy shit, kristoff, did you really have to write and ending that’s the equivalent of burning my bookshelf, strangling me in my sleep, bringing me back to life, then stabbing me repeatedly in the eye a [...]

      F U C K. ME. And I HATE you so much right now, Mr. Kristoff.Literally GTFO. *screams for days*(I was going to do a review on my channel, but I'm waiting for the UK edition to arrive so I can show all of you how beautiful it is, so once I do, I'll leave a link to it down below.)I think this book surpassed all of my expectations and brought them up to an all new high. It was so, so good. Again, Jay's writing was excellent, full of buttery prose and lyrical pieces. This time around though, I didn't [...]

      Full review finally up after 16 yearsEverytime I think about writing a review for this book my brain goes into full-fledged panic mode so here’s my attempt - So godsgrave takes place sometime after nevernights ending- Mia is still out to get revenge for her familia by any means possible- Note that in this book mia progresses to get even more bada*s, which yeah, I didn’t think was possible either - There are more brutal deaths, more blood, more anguish, more deceit and betrayal and friendship [...]

      4.75 stars.The wolf did not pity the lamb. The storm begged no forgiveness of the drowned.It’s rare that a sequel manages to be equally as devastating as the first book. Nevernight was easily one of the best books I’ve read in the last year, but Godsgrave has managed to score a pretty high place up there as well.I finished this book at 1am, and I genuinely couldn’t sleep because of how much those plot twists fucked me up. Naturally, I ended up making chocolate chip cookies alone in my kitc [...]

      3.5 stars!This book is a tough one to rate. I was super hyped for it but I spent about 300 pages of it really bored and confused because it was super dense. I just don't think I have a grasp as to what the fuck was happening the entire time which definitely frustrated me.I went in with the expectation that I would either super love it or really hate it and I'm kinda in the middle. I'm not sure how to feel about it. I. Need. Tric.

      Jay Kristoff You just broke my brain with Godsgrave. Here we go, spoiler free.Point blank Godsgrave was amazing. This book is brutal, adventurous, funny, dark, sexy and clever. The action this time is pretty much nonstop. Whether it is slavers Assassins Gladiatii The politians of the republic of Itreya or some mysterious creature that calls the darkness, Mia Corvere has a lot to contend with this time around. Enemies become friends Friends become enemies And potential lovers are coming out of th [...]

      I only have one tiny thing to complain about and I don't even know if I can say it without spoiling things. It's more of a preference thing so I highly doubt it will bother other readers. =) But overall, WOW THAT WAS GOOD. I'm glad I decided to read this one.

      DNF @ 20%Am giving this series and author another chance, if I disliked this the way I did the first book then I'll know for sure that this series/author is not for me.The narrator is doing such a horrible job,not to mention also slow. 2hrs50mins for just 86 pages, I think am going to read this myself and ditch the audiobook.Apparently I couldn't do it, I just don't care enough about Mia to finish this, she will either finish the mission or just have her revenge I DON'T CARE, this is a new year [...]

    • Chloe says:

      This book was amazing! I think I liked it just like 0.0000001% less than Nevernight, but I still absolutely adored everything about it. This trilogy will be an easy favourite, these books are phenomenal.In this book, instead of the assassin school, we have our Mia as a gladiatii, very much the gladiators we know from history - and it's done impeccably - but of course with a twist of magic and all of the brutality that we come to expect from Mia's story. It's a similar formula as the first in tha [...]

      This book just BLEW MY MIND. My brain is splattered on the wall. What the heck.Godsgrave, gentlefriends, is bloody (and) brilliant. It made me laugh (a lot), it made me cry (AKA SOB) and it made me scream ( I mean THAT ENDING?!?!) AND IM STILL NOT OVER IT.This fantastically brilliant and disgustingly bloody sequel to Nevernight, is not for the faint of heart. I mean, it's downright gag-worthy at times. But it is also full of incredible character development, witty banter and amazing side charact [...]

      3.75 Why Would You Forgive StarsNevernight was in my top 5 reads last year gentlefriends so this book had a lot to live up to. While it was a pretty good book overall it fell a little short of its predecessor. Still this world and the characters in it are very interesting and I was glad to be jumping back in.╰⊰✿Non-Spoilery Section✿⊱╮Kristoff does a few things really well throughout this book. He has a unique turn of phrase and prose in this book that is really beautiful even when it [...]

    • Dannii Elle says:

      This is the second instalment in the Nevernight series. I had zero hesitations that this was going to be another 5 star read and am so glad that I was proved correct in that assumption.This is the continuation of the story of Mia Corvere. She has completed her training with the other Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder and yet is no closer to avenging her family's deaths by kindly returning the favour to those who murdered them. On discovering those whose demise she has promised are actually un [...]

    • Phrynne says:

      I have to admit to not liking this one quite as much as I did Nevernight. It had much to offer but never quite reached the level of magic that the first book did. Not for me anyway:)For a large part of the book I felt overwhelmed. There was too much blood, too much fighting, too much plotting and double crossing. Actually there was also too much sex.That was the first half of the book.Then the really good stuff started. Mia appeared to go completely over to the dark side and it seemed impossible [...]

    • Cindy ✩☽ Savage Queen ♔ says:

      “She'd grown up inside books. No matter how dark life became, shutting out the hurt was as easy as opening a cover. A child of murdered parents and a failed rebellion, she'd still walked in the boots of scholars and warriors, queens and conquerors. The heavens grant us only one life, but through books, we live a thousand.” OMFG, what is taking my book so long in the mail!? I need it now!!!----I love the U.K. cover for this so much! Can't wait =D----Title!!!

      4.5 stars"No matter what you face on those sands, fear is the only enemy in your path. Conquer your fear, and you can conquer the world."The Nevernight Chronicle is, in a nutshell, about a teenage girl mastering new and creative ways to murder people. Last time, it was the art of assassination. This time, it's the way of gladiatii— gladiator."If Vengeance has a mother, her name is Patience."What can I say about this series that I haven't thoroughly gushed over? It's gloriously plotted, with co [...]
