PopCulture Mini-Thon, The Midnight Society - Wrap Up & Mini Reviews

 

Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to my wrap up and mini reviews for PopCulture Readathon mini-thon aka The Midnight Society.  This Are You Afraid of the Dark? themed mini readathon was created and hosted by Whitney @ bookswhitme and ran from March 14th through March 20th.  Of the five prompts, I managed to complete three of them.  You can check out my original TBR here.  Keep reading to see my thoughts on the books I completed:

The Tale of the Long Ago Locket - Historical Fiction

❋ ❋  ❋ 

Conspiracy of Ravens (The Shadow #2) by Lila Bowen is a fantastic sequel to Wake of Vultures. This is exactly the kind of historical fantasy western that I needed in my life.  Sure, it's a little rough around the edges but to be honest that really worked in its favor for me.  I can't wait to read the third book in the series, Malice of Crows.

My review is also on Goodreads.


The Tale of the Tiny Red Bicycle - Red Cover 

As a huge fan of You and Hidden Bodies, my expectations were sky high for Providence by Caroline Kepnes.  Unfortunately, this was a massive let down. The central concept was intriguing but I wasn't a fan of the execution and I wasn't interested in any of the characters and didn't care what was happening to any of them.

My review is also on Goodreads.


The Tale of Station 109.1 - Social Media Rec

❋ ❋ 

Black City Saint (Black City Saint #1) by Richard A. Knaak is a solid historical fantasy. I loved the Roaring '20s elements and it's pretty cool how the Saint George and the Dragon and other fantasy elements are added into that world.  There's a lot of potential for it to be truly great, but around half way mark it really slows down and not much happens.  Either way, I think I may be continuing the series in the future because I think it could really grow on me.

My review is also on Goodreads.

    1. If you try it, I hope you'll like it more than I did.
