Read from August 17th, 2018 to December 23rd, 2018.
I think I’m leaning towards a 3.75 star rating for Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor instead of a solid 4 out of 5. I thought this sequel fit will with the first book, The Daughter of Smoke and Bones. The plot continued in an understandable way.
I’m not sure why I’m not in love with this series yet. It has a lot of interesting ideas. I think the writing could be better, especially describing certain characters (Zuzana, Jael – Mik and Hazael seem like the same person), and the book could be written less cheesily. I think a few scenes could be cut out. I personally don’t care for the love story between Zuzana and Mik.
These issues I’ve listed off slowed the book down for me. I personally couldn’t wait until the ending because I knew that’s when the book would start getting crazy. I like that there weren’t a lot of predictable plot twists, though.
I’m giving Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor 3.75 out of 5 stars. My rating system is the following:
- My rating system stands: 5/5 is a knock out of the park; this book deserves to be read by everyone. 4/5 is, “I really liked it,” but it did have a couple of kinks. 3/5 is, “I believe there are a lot of people who would enjoy this book, but for one reason or another, it didn’t sit well with me.” 2/5 is, “I really didn’t enjoy it and I’m not going to recommend it.” 1/5 is, “no one read this – throw it in a lake.”
