YA Fiction Review

Bitterblue (Graceling Realm, #3)Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed Kristin Cashore’s third book in the – well, I’m not sure exactly what to call it. Realm Trilogy? I don’t know. Regardless, it was good! It made me want to re-read Graceling and Fire to remember some of the history of the characters. Bitterblue’s grown-up character was very believable and refreshingly real for a fantasy novel. I loved how honest and frank she is about herself as she discovers, not only the mysteries of her re-awakening kingdom, but who she is as a queen and woman. It was dark in a way that I hadn’t expected, and that Graceling had only scratched the surface of, but that was what made it so good I couldn’t put it down. The other great thing? I got to read my very own autographed copy from BEA where I actually spoke to Kristin (we have so much in common since we both went to Simmons and all – haha.)

Authors are my celebrities 🙂
