Ruth said I'd probably like these, and she was right!

This is the first of a series, set in a fantasy world heavily based on ancient Greece. It's also very different from the rest of its series — it's narrated first-person (the rest are close-in third

Let's pause for a manifesto. I don't really have rules for my reviews, but I do have some guidelines. To wit:

Write something about all the books I read... eventually.

Avoid summarizing. It's a bore.

If I know someone else who would like this, try to

I was really hyped about this, and there were a lot of things I think it did really well, but on the whole it didn't quite do it for me.

Which is fine!!! Real talk: this is YA written for the younger end of that audience (~14-ish?), and it's not doing

This was another one where the prose just ejected me. Which was a bummer, because I was getting interested in the characters and plot! But it just wasn't fun to read.

But where Parties in Congress just clunked, this had a more depressing kind of badne

I couldn't get past the prose and style — the dialogue was just wrong, and I couldn't deal. (The plot and setting had problems too, but if I'd been having more fun on a paragraph-to-paragraph level I could have gotten over those.)

And Playing the Role of Herself by K.E. Lane

I don't actually remember a whole lot about this one, but I do remember enjoying it. There was a bizarre out-of-nowhere twist near the end that I wasn't into, but when it was just the characters interacting it was a lot of fun.

This was excellent! Just really well put-together. The conflicts made sense, there was intense chemistry between the leads, the historical texture was superb (I learned some things about the Luddites?!), and the prose was solid. Also, as they say rep ...more

Excellent.

There's a thing this book does, which made it really satisfying to read but which I'm having a hard time describing. (And especially describing in a way that doesn't sound awful.) Like, basically: the external conflict is that the protagoni
