Emperor of the Eight Islands by Lian Hearn

Emperor of the Eight Islands (Tale of Shikanoko, #1)Emperor of the Eight Islands by Lian Hearn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There was a lot more mythology than I expected in this book. I thought it would be much more about the warrior culture and political intrigue.
It was still a really interesting read, and I loved some of the 'magic', but it was also a difficult read sometimes with so many similar names (especially when listening to the audiobook) and I felt like it was a little long.

The Archived by Victoria Schwab

The Archived (The Archived, #1)The Archived by Victoria Schwab
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Again, Schwab comes up with a unique concept and story that is just so original and interesting! I just didn't think it was executed as well as it could have been.
There were a few holes in the story, a couple of character actions not quite believable and an attempt at a love triangle which all didn't really work. However, it is a short book, an easy read, and quite a page turner. (I ordered book 2 before I was even half way through!)
3.5 stars
