All about Books
This is the page where I will be discussing what I'm reading, reviewing those books and be open to suggestions to keep adding to my To Be Read pile. Honestly, I'm never going to get through that thing anyway, so the more the merrier.
Today I have the first of two book reviews.
This one lent to me by a friend.
Title: The Paper Magician
Author: Charlie N. Holmberg
Part of a trilogy: Yes, book 1 in The Paper Magician trilogy
Original publication date: 1st September 2014
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars (Read December 2017)
It was much shorter than I expected, but there was still enough time to get to know the characters and various descriptions, though these felt a bit long in places. I really liked the magical aspects and that the dog was made out of paper. There are not enough animals/pets in YA, or any books really, and having a paper dog was a really good idea.
I thought Ceony's learning curve progressed naturally enough and the journey she went on to help her tutor was well planned out and an interesting concept. At first, I wasn't sure about the possibility of any relationship happening, given the age gap, but I think that it could work out. In real life, I know people with a bit of an age gap in their relationships/marriages and they're happy.
I'm looking forward to continuing with the series.
Thanks and happy reading. :)
Hi, I'm an animal lover and have a degree. You can usually find me either reading or writing. Failing that, I might have actually ventured into the outside world...
