I have slowly started to get out of my reading slump this month. I have finished some books, and started a few that I’m in the middle of reading. The one that I have started but not finished will be in my October TBR.
Book 3 in The Winner’s Trilogy
The Winner’s Kiss is the last book in The Winner’s Trilogy. I listened to an audiobook version of the book. I think the book worked well as an audiobook. I think The Winner’s trilogy is a great YA fantasy series.
The winner’s kiss was the one I liked the least in this trilogy. Only because book 1 and 2 was so great. Book 2 is my favorite.
The only thing I didn’t like about the first book. Is that the love interest was very instalove, and I don’t like that. But I liked the love story in the last book. I think it grew on me while reading the two last books.
My favorite character was Roshar. He was funny and sassy. He gave a lot to the story as a side character.
Rating: 4 stars ★★★★☆
I started out liking the first parts of this book. I was very interested in the story, and how Claire would survive in 1743 in the Scottish Highlands. And what was going to happen to her in a foreign time.
After a while I found the book to not be very believable. It was fun to see what happened to the characters. Reading about all the troubles they kept finding. But sometimes it was too much.
My biggest problem with the book is that it was very long. A lot of things happened. The book dragged on and on, and it took me ages to read. I read it in between books for 3 or 4 months. My interest in it kind of went down. I have finished it now and I liked it but did not love it.
P.S. Now I understand the Hype about Jamie Fraser 😉
