It’s book review time! Whoop whoop! Today I am finally getting around to a book that I have been wanting to read ever since I first heard about it. yep, today it is all about Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. Let’s do this!
Well that was fucking brilliant. This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2017 and I am so glad that I have finally read it. it was amazing. I loved every second of it, so much so that I ended up reading it in basically one sitting. I just could not put this book down.
I loved the storylines in this book. Everything was so complex and well thought out. All of these storylines weaving together and intertwining. Adding depth to the main story. I loved it. it kept the story feeling really fresh and interesting. I loved how things kept twisting and turning and I loved that things kept being flipped on their heads. What we thought we knew kept being warped and changed, it was brilliant. I also loved how much mythology and history was in this book. I was expecting a degree of mythology, I mean, Diana is an Amazonian after all. But I was surprised how much history was in this story. There was so much woven into the story and it worked so well. I loved it.
I also really loved the fight scenes. A lot of the times with book fights, particularly big ones, they feel very flat and rushed. It is often hard to picture what is happening as they are underdeveloped. But this was not the case in this book. I felt like I was watching an action film at times. There was so much going on in the fights, but it was easy to follow and so gripping. I found myself on the edge of my seat really cheering Diana on.
But I think what I loved most about this book was the characters. I loved everyone. Each person was so complex and complicated, it made them all feel very real and three dimensional. You couldn’t help but feel connected to them. I loved that each character had layers to their personality. Diana is this strong, brave, warrior, but also a normal insecure teenage girl. Alia is smart and cunning but also so caring and protective of those she loves. And every character is the same. they each have their own distinct personalities.
Overall I freaking loved this book. It was one of the best books that I have read this year. It was just so good. It has now left me really itching to read the rest of the DC Icons series as well as to continue with the Grisha Trilogy. if you haven’t read this book yet, you need to.
5 out of 5
And there we go. That was my review for Wonder Woman. I seriously love this book. Have you read it yet? Do you share my love? I hope that you have enjoyed toady’s post and I will see you all again very soon.
