Do you have any favorite bookstores? ▪︎ My favorite local bookstore is Changing Hands, but where we went on vacation earlier this month there is a delightful bookstore in downtown Columbus, Ohio, called The Loft. I wish I'd taken a picture. I came home with five books, two of which are cookbooks. I definitely need to visit this cafe in New York, but for now I'll enjoy making recipes. ▪︎ #cookbook #reader #readersofig #bookrec #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #igbooks #instabooks #booksofinstagram #bookblogger #bookgram #mybookstaengagement #booksbooksbooks #allthebooks #bookaesthetic #booknerdigans #booknerd #bookaholic #bookworm #booklover #booklove #bookish #bookaddict #bibliophile #reading https://www.instagram.com/p/CQIISaOrmrZ/?utm_medium=tumblr
Book Review #4 - Wings of Fire: The Dark Secret
Spoiler Free Synopsis:
After Glory successfully became queen of the Rainwings, Starflight gets taken away by the Nightwings. There, he discovers Nightwing secrets, his father, and a set of “alternative dragons.”
He also makes a Nightwing friend— possibly the only Nightwing he will ever find himself relating to. Not to mention the shocking twist that changes everything we know about the dragonets and the prophecy as a whole.
This book is easily my least favorite out of the series so far. I know, starting up with a negative thought, but hear me out.
Starflight is SUCH an amazing character. I love his little bookworm self, the way he’s easily so different from the rest because of his passion for reading, learning, and discovering, how cute he is with the way he expresses attraction and he’s overall such a good boy.
But not a good POV character.
He acts more as a camera. Interesting things happen around him, but he does nothing to make anything happen until the very end. The grand majority of the time reading was frustrating as he kept going “I could do this,,,, but am too spooked” and me saying “OH MY GOD JUST DO IT JUST DO S O M E T H I N G”
We got to learn more about the Nightwings though! That was pretty cool!
This series is still AMAZING! But moral of the story, Starflight sucks as a POV character :D
"Everyone thinks their world is the only one. A flea believes a dog is the world. A dog believes the kennel is the world. The huntsman thinks his country is the world. The king believes the globe is the world. The farther out you get, the wider you get, the higher you get, the more you see you have misunderstood the bounds of what is possible. Of what is right and wrong. Of what you can truly do. Perspective, Ronan Lynch," Bryde said. "That is what we must teach you."
