  2. Uprooted by Noami Novik

  1. Hurray, Uprooted!

    I can see how people’s wrong expectations of Assassin’s Apprentice would mess with their enjoyment of the book (and the trilogy as a whole). I first read it when I was, uh, twelve, I think? Maybe thirteen? And I was hoping for a lot more action than I got—but I continued with the trilogy anyway. I was too young and uncritical to really “get” the books, and was suuuper disappointed with the third one. I think I’d probably like the whole trilogy more now that I’m a wizened grump.

    Ha, I totally understand your complaints against City of Bones. I didn’t continue with the series, either. (Though I did spend this weekend binge-watching the first season of Shadowhunters, solely to watch Alec and Magnus fall in love. No, it was not worth the hours I spent not blogging.)


    1. It’s a series I’m glad I only read now! I think I wouldn’t have liked it as much if I read it when I was younger either… I actually kind of like Shadowhunters *hides* I feel like it’s such a guilty-pleasure type of show? Like, it’s fun 😀 And I live for Simon, Alec and Magnus in Shadowhunters. Although I certainly didn’t like the first two in the books.
