I read this book sooooo long ago and I never posted this?
I KNOW, I’m as shocked as you are.
By that, I mean that I’m not shocked at all because my posting has been as consistent as English weather (i.e overall sh*te) so this is no shock to the system.
but here I am, finally, posting my ramblings over a book that KILLED me.
*cringe at my past self because this is a sh*te review*
reviews from the rest of the series:
he was fhbgdfkgbjkdfgbjfdg so smol I love him so much and he was struggling and I felt so bad for smol Noah. SO HEARTBREAKING.
Noah will always be my son
*future me: i randomly thought of him the other day and I wanted to cry sm because he’s such a lil snarky cinnamon roll*
SHE WAS SO STRONGGGGGG in this book!!!! She didn’t do loads, BUT SHE WAS FIERCE, AS ALWAYS.
My poor, poor, Ronan bby. HE SUFFERED. MY BBY SUFFERED. HE HAS TO BE HAPPY. HE WILL BE HAPPY. OLAY. I WILL NOT PERMIT ANYTHING BUT RONAN BEING HAPPY.
was a bit ‘meh’ in this book, butttttt HE WAS THERE FOR RONAN AND FOR GANSEY AND REGJNRKJGNKNG HE’S A GOOD FRIEND
*future me: I definitely under-appreciated Adam in this book (this is where Ronan comes and kills me). He was AMAZING. he basically WAS a forest, i mean who can do that and work a job AND be there for literally every single one of his friends???*
This is—he is— the reason that I read this book so slowly. I love himmm and they love himmmm so furiously and he’s just so precious and I HAVE UNDYING LOVE FOR HIM. I COULDN’T READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE I KNEW WHAT WOULD HAPPENED AND I WANTED TO AVOID THAT.
just. THANK GOD is all I want to say.
AND ALTOGETHER. THEY WERE JUST. SO TOGETHER. AND their friendship is so strong and actually goals for my life.
I love how much Ronan and Blue get along together because they’re so different but actually so similar and gdhfgbkdfgbdkf and both so great.
THEY FIST-BUMPED SO MANY TIMES IT WAS BRILLIANT. I SHIP THIS FRIENDSHIP.
AND OH MY THE SHIPS DID ALL THE SALING AND IT WAS A MAGNIFICENT EMBARKING. OH, IT WAS.
“Adam smiled cheerily. Ronan would start wars and burn cities for that true smile, elastic and amiable.”
“His feelings for Adam were an oil spill; he’d let them overflow and now there wasn’t a damn place in the ocean that wouldn’t catch fire if he dropped a match.”
“The head is too wise. The heart is all fire.”
I JUST WANT TO FILL THIS ALL WITH PYNCH QUOTES.
*future me: def pynch > blusey… sorry not sorry*
But I felt that a certain MAIN EVENT THAT I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO FOR 4 BOOKS was. . . underwhelming to say the least. It was summed up in 3 words and then BAM it was over. I was not happy. AT ALL. And I literally screamed “what?” Because I’m sorry, but it wasn’t acceptable. AT ALL.
AND OMG THE BLUESY MOMENTS. I just *dies*
I am so in love. I will always love this series, this world, these characters, this story. I would give this book 5 stars, however, despite how much I LOVE this series, the world, this book, EVERYTHING, I just feel that there was something missing.
I feel that I couldn’t get into the story properly.
But what DID NOT DISAPPOINT WAS THE WORLD. THE WORLD WAS BRILLIANT.
It all got so dark and I loved it so muchhhhhhh I think that it was so strong and I would say that I couldn’t stop reading it, but truth be told, it didn’t GRAB me until the end. DON’T GET ME WRONG, it was brilliant. Full of so many great moments, but I JUST WAS’T GRABBED UNTIL THE END.
I felt that it let me down a little. AND I ACTUALLY MISSED THE CHARACTERS?
I think that there were too few moments with Mr Gray and Maura because I SHIP THEM and that parting actually was really sad.
I just felt that while I love love love this story, it still let me down a little? And I do not feel that this was a conclusion. (FUTURE ME: silly past me for not knowing about the dreamer trilogy — well it HADN’T BEEN ANNOUNCED YET BUT I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN!!) I feel likes there’s still so much possibility for this story, and there’s so much that’s still ahead of the characters and I don’t feel that I’m ready to leave these books, these characters, and this world behind.
I want there to be stories about Henry, Gansey and blue in Venezuela. I want there to be stories about Adam and Ronan. (FUTURE ME: OMG I CALLED IT) I WANT there to be so much MORE from this world.
Tell me your thoughts!!
