Hello friends!! Instead of a book review for Wintersong by S. Jae. Jones, I decided to change it up a little bit and show you what I think about whilst reading it. The notes I’m going to share with you are the notes I use to write my reviews. So this will be spoilery, because I decided to do a thoughts post for this post so my notes are NOT spoiler free. You have been warned.
So here are the thoughts I had whilst reading Wintersong by S. Jae. Jones:
– the prologue is lyrical and poetic. Is this Elizabeth girl the same girl as our protagonist or just a story?
– I have no idea how to pronounce Liesl, but I’m enjoying her charcater
– Her brother, Josef sounds like an amazing and sweet person, and her sister, Käthe is very energetic and upbeat
– I feel like the siblings’ childhood would be fun
– The grandmother must know something about The Goblin King. Maybe that the stories are true?
– I am in love with the writing, it’s so lyrical and magical
– Things are getting stranger and intense. The Liesl is a little selfish, which is a flaw that makes her human. But its clear that she’s torn between saving her sister and living in a untruthful world
– The choice is obvious of course. Hopefully there is still time
– I like the grandmother and hope that Liesl and her grow closer
– Poor Liesl, feeling second best
– But yay for Josef on doing so well at the audition thing! His dreams are coming true, hopefully
– The Goblin King is dark, seductive and mysterious and I definitely want to see more of him. And see Liesl’s childhood with him
– Wowowow there are so many twists and turns
– Liesl’s heart is so pure and she’s so kind and selfless. Gah she needs to be protected at all costs
– And omg the Goblin King!! I hope they meet again in Shadowsong! They’re just so cute together
– I hope Josef doesn’t fall back into the changeling’s hands, he’s too sweet for that – and I wonder if he knows what he really is
– Ahh enjoyed this book a lot!! Definitely will be picking up Shadowsong whenever I get the chance to!
So that’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed this post. Do tell me if you’d like to see more posts like these! I’m thinking about doing this more often, because they’re fun and I don’t have to worry too much about coherent sentences (especially since it’s a busy school year for me and I’ll be able to get more posts out like this). Have you read Wintersong, if so, did you like it?
