Review: Heartsick

Heartsick Heartsick by Chelsea Cain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not quite the page turner that I was expecting from the hype that I had read about this book, but a quick and easy summer read. What kept me interested though was the story arc around our broken detective Archie and the psychopath Gretchen Lowell who had previously captured Archie and tortured him for 10 days before releasing him. This relationship has so much potential, which I hope will be developed in later books as there wasn't enough of it in this one!

(I did also appreciate the nod to "Silence of the Lambs" by Gretchen by at one point by calling our intrepid reporter Susan 'Clarice')

Review: The Wise Man's Fear

The Wise Man's Fear The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved reading this book, so much so that I think that I had convinced myself that it was one of those stories that would just go on forever so was bitterly disappointed when it came to the inevitable end. There is something so satisfying about becoming completely lost in another world. Obviously I have developed my own theories about the Chandrian, Denna and our main man Kvothe himself but there is still so much I am curious about and so much to still be explained that I am busting at the seams for the sequel to come out. At worst, this was a good reminder as to why I should always wait to read a series until it is finished as I am sure that the wait is now going to be the death of me!
