I've always loved the two of them, and I especially love them together! A big part of that probably has to do with the fact that I relate a lot to Cath, so I felt like I could really understand their relationship. Plus, it felt very real, which is always nice to read.(less)

Helen and 1 other person liked Brenna's review of Akata Witch (Akata Witch, #1):
Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
""Never pray to the gods that answer after dark."

V.E. Schwab seems to be a polarizing author for a lot of people, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I loved this book--definitely one of my favorites of the year, and I plan on checking out" Read more of this review »
