Book Reviews

I've read 24 books so far this year. My reading tends to yo-yo a bit, depending on how long my commute is and how much focus I put on reading more. 2020's lockdown left me with no commute, but a commitment to keep some routine, and an abundance of reading time in the summer sitting outside got me to 50 books. You can see my overviews of previous years via the left hand menu. There are 705 reviews in total.

Genevieve Cogman - The Invisible Library 2: The Masked City

Completed: 2018-09-12
A solid second book, which expands the universe and starts to take some of the mystery away from elements that were notionally introduced in the first book, but really left vague to the point that I wasn't certain the author knew where she was going. I particularly liked the development of the fae, and the idea that they deliberately and accidentally turn their lives into great stories - influencing those around them into tropes and stereotypes. It's a nice construct that gives an excuse for cliche storytelling. It did seem an odd choice to have the two 'sidekick' characters sidelined for so much of the book but it gave Irene a chance to shine. (585)
