Book 78 of 100
I bought this book because the cover was beautiful, and I mean beautiful! The picture doesn’t even do it justice. The pages in the book are gorgeous too. Each page has some sort of drawing or design around the edges that pertains to what’s happening in the story. While this book is beautiful, I had a hard time getting into it. I thought that it started slow and was a little bit confusing. It’s told in the first person, and the main character uses lots of slang that made it a little bit hard to follow. Once I got the hang of it though, I really started to enjoy it. It’s pretty fast paced, and super original. Check this out if you like fantasy adventure stories!
Rating: 3.5 out of 5

????? I’m reading several things right now, and I’m not super close to finishing any of them.
