2020 was a tough year for a lot of us. I know I already talked a bit about this in my Happy New Year and Goals for January 2021 posts, but I thought I would make a dedicated post for going over the books that I read last year and if any of my thoughts have changed in regards to them. Since this last year really got me back into reading, as before other than Shadowhunters Chronicles which was the majority of my reading in 2019 I pretty much never read. But in 2020, I read at least six to eight books a month. If not, more as I often end up reading several books multiple times or re-reading various chapters repeatedly.
Time for another WWW Wednesday. I didn’t do one the previous week as I didn’t honestly get around to reading much. I tried getting as much progress as possible done on my book for NaNoWriMo, currently I’m at 28K out of 50K words. But my laptop battery exploded, so I have to put that on hold until my new computer arrives and I get everything transferred over to that. At least it’s forcing me to spend that time reading.
Holly Black recently released a novella called How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories from The Folk of the Air series. Instead of this story taking place from Jude Duarte’s perspective this is from Cardan Greenbriar. I didn’t do a review on the other novella called The Lost Sisters though I did read it. Nor do I with most novellas, though I think I’m going to start in the future whenever I do. So, let me use this one as the first.
The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black is the final book in The Folk of the Air trilogy. As I did with the previous two books, I’m going to share my general overview thoughts of the book without getting into any spoilers. If you want to see my thoughts on the previous two books: The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King check out their reviews.
The second book in the series The Folk of the Air by Holly Black is called The Wicked King. Similar to the first book in this series, I couldn’t set this book aside and ended up reading it in one sitting. I can’t remember if I mentioned that in my previous post where I reviewed The Cruel Prince. If you want to see my thoughts on that book or get a sense of the series, I would recommend checking out that post as I went more into Holly Black’s style in there as well as the world as a whole.
