A Great & Terrible Beauty

by Libba Bray
432 pages

Recommended to me by teens that read and like similar titles as myself, I thought this would be a new series I could get into. I was wrong. Well, I guess I shouldn’t be that harsh. I think I just didn’t like the readers voice. Otherwise, it had several elements that I did like; set in a historical time period that I love with beautiful writing and complex characters.

I might give Rebel Angels, the second in the series, a try, but definitely in print. No more soothe-me-into-a-sleep voice of that reader.
