Two Recent Reads #3: The Midnight Library & Owl and the Electric Samurai

Today I will be writing two short reviews for two of my most recent reads!
The long anticipated The Midnight Library and the fantasy, vampire book Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Adventures of Owl #3).

Let's dive right in.

Genres: Fiction, Fantasy

My score:

Thanks to Sanne for reading this book with me! I was anticipating this book for so long, that I even had two copies at some point...
The book did NOT disappoint!

The story was very unique, original and thought through in a beautiful way. It was such a thrilling idea to be able to see all the options a person can have in their life. The book made me realize that we, as humans, are very fortunate to make our own choices, even in the smallest of things.

On teeny tiny part that disappointed me was the fact that the book could have easily been 100 pages longer so we could see Nora explore more of her different lives. But that's all I can come up with.

I loved the ending and felt like it was thrilling and beautiful and it was all I wanted from a standalone book.

Author: Kristi Charish
Pages: 416 / 12h 34m
Genres: Fantasy, Vampires
Published: October 5th 2015
Source: Audible
Goodreads score: 3.91
My score:

I do not feel any regret for sticking with the audiobooks in this series. The narrator is amazing with the accents and voices she does and that makes it so easy and fun to listen to.

I think that this is my favorite book in the Owl Series so far. If I gave half apples, I would have given this one 3.5.

The story was easier to follow, although I did feel like the ending was a bit of a mumble jumble of things and I didn't want to keep rewinding, so I just listened through. I feel like the books might need a bit of an edit, because I can't count how many "baleful meows" the cat did and there were more repetitions like this in the book.

I was a bit sad that Nadia wasn't too much in this book, but the ending was so good, that I'm really pumped for the next book. Hopefully I can end this series with a 4 star rating?
