I interviewed Melinda Salisbury author of The Sin Eater’s Daughter. Melinda (Mel) likes to travel, and have adventures. She also likes medieval castles, non-medieval aquariums, Richard III, and all things Scandinavian. The Sin Eater’s Daughter is her first novel. Mel has recently announced the second book in the series: The Sleeping Prince.
This year my goal is certainly to read many book – more than 50 at least. However that is a post for another day. I wanted to take a look back at all the book that I have reviewed on the blog. Some I still love just as much but others I’ve come to doubt my own opinion and I’m not so wooed by then anymore. Time changes preference, so lets take a look.
Yes there were a few tears on my behalf. Yes this review will have spoilers. Yes I think that minus the first half the rest of the book the rest was alright.
‘We’re just a tiny speck in all this infinity.’
I picked this book up a long while ago, in all honesty I believe it was more than year ago! I never got the chance to read but now I feel like I’ve definitely been missing out on something. It’s not the next big thing but it certainly is something.
This novel is the second the Divergent series and yes I picked it up straight after I finished Divergent. The book is an amazing five hundred-twenty five pages long and I honestly believe that it would have been at least one hundred-fifty page shorter. If you read my review on Divergent here you would know I commended Veronica Roth on only giving information on a need to know basis.
I never seem to read or watch anything when it’s in the hype because I don’t want to conform to the hype – which I wouldn’t do anyway – and because when these books come out I have a trillion other things I am doing.
Summary: Lucien is very ill, he has cancer. Lucien soon realises that he is a ‘Stravagante’ and he can travel between worlds with the help of a talisman. In the other world (Bellezza) he isn’t ill and stuck in bed all day, he’s fit and well. Set in sixteenth century Bellezza inspired by modern-day Italy, this is a story like no other!
