Series: The Divine Cities by Robert Jackson Bennett: City of Stairs
Mini Review: This first book in the trilogy made me love it. Absolutely the best series on this list this month. Unbelievable characters and worldbuilding and plot and I loved it.
Mini Review: One of my favourite series of all time. I love the characters and the world and the plots to the individual books.
Mini Review: This was a decent enough read, but it didn’t become a favourite by any means. Interesting scifi, couldn’t stand some of the characters. Overall okay read.
Mini Review: Read this at your own risk. The author is more concerned with having her characters have sex whenever they want than building the relationship or paying attention to plot.
