My Thoughts on Our Violent Ends (These Violent Delights, Book 2) by Chloe Gong

A year ago I read the first book in the Romeo & Juliet retelling by Chloe Gong called These Violent Delights and fell in love with the story. I wanted to see how the duology played out. Mostly if it kept with the Romeo & Juliet similarities until the very end or if it would take a different turn. So, when Our Violent Ends was announced for pre-order, I got it and finally got my hands on it over the weekend. And while I stick with the notion that I’m not doing reviews for the most part at this time, I have to for this book. Or at least share my thoughts on the books. Note there will be spoilers. If you don’t want spoilers, here is what I would rate the book: 4.25 out of 5 stars. It was freaking amazing! I cannot wait to see what else Chloe Gong releases in the future since this was her first series.

Book Review of These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

This was January’s book club book over in a writers’ Discord by Rebecca Mix called The Word Garden (previously Chaos Sprinters) is These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong. I love Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. Yes, it’s tragedy, and some things are questionable when you think about it but it’s a classic. So, when I first saw this pop up on Amazon while I was looking at books I instantly just got it. And the same week it arrived, my book club group picked it for the month of January. As I was planning on going to my mom’s for Christmas, I knew I wouldn’t have much entertainment while they had to work during the day so I brought this book along… and ended up finishing it in one day.
