my first ever buddy read and what it made me realize – pt. III

Planned as a blog post series of four parts, the buddy read for The Cruel Prince by Holly Black ended somehow different than imagined. Instead of four weeks we all finished the books after only three, but took our time to further discuss it. All in all we did use the four weeks we had planned originally.

I realized this in especially stressful times.

This is a spoiler-free review which can also be viewed HERE.

Since I was little I loved to read everything related to mythology – mostly greek and egyptian, but norse mythology was also dearly loved. The daughter of friends of my parents taught me everything she knew – which was quite a lot – because she loved mythologies as well. So when I stumbled over Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman I couldn’t do anything else than buy and read it.
