So, being married I do celebrate Valentine’s Day somewhat religiously. I love Chris, A LOT! *cue groans* And there are lots of places that talk about Gal-entine’s Day so I’m not going to go there. I will however give you, my dear friends, some ideas for a more geeky/nerdy Valentine’s day. This is for those of you who aren’t wanting the fancy dinner at the crowded, overpriced restaurant.
So, I started Red Rising a few days ago, and even though I absolutely loved it, things kept getting in the way of reading it. *cough NCIS cough Chris* But it was so good! I have a brand new canon couple to ship, which makes me happy. Let me know what you guys think in the comments! Contains minor spoilers.
Red Rising was a powerful young adult dystopian. I got into it with high expectations because I’d heard such fantastic reviews about it. I had also received a couple pins from an OwlCrate that had Darrow on them. So I was excited to finally meet the man behind the pin.
It’s been recently published, so no spoilers. I’ll come back and update it in a few months with specifics for anyone who’s interested. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth definitely earned a 5 out of 5 with me. I enjoyed the Divergent trilogy, but found the writing just okay. The ending of Allegiant I won’t bother getting into with this post because there’s just so much that could be said. The writing in Carve the Mark showed definite improvement. I wasn’t distracted from the story, it flowed cleanly between the different viewpoints.
