The Bookish Box once again delivered a gem to my doorstep. Dreams Lie Beneath by Rebecca Ross paints a gorgeous and captivating world filled with complex and intricate characters. From the moment I was introduced to Azenor, I wanted more.
I have complicated feelings about this novel, much like I did with Yaa Gyasi’s Transcendent Kingdom. So while there are 5 stars up there, take the time to read through this one because it’s not as simple as me loving it or enjoying it.
Artemisia is the hero we all need. She’s strong, independent, and 100 percent over the bullshit. She’s training to become a Gray Sister, a nun who works to cleanse spirits of the dead so they can pass peacefully. Without the Gray Sisters, the dead would return to torment the people of Loraille.
I floundered for the first hundred or so pages of Lore by Alexandra Bracken trying to acquire a grasp of the backstory and the dump truck load of information thrown at the reader. I assume if you have an in-depth knowledge of Greek mythology you may fare better than I did, but it took me a while to get the hang of the different families/gods and characters.
Saying I read a lot would be an understatement, but despite all of that reading I rarely see pieces of myself within a novel. There are characters I want to be or characters I want to be friends with, but when I take an honest look at who I am – there are few places I see Ciera. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid is one of those places.
As signs of aging spring up for Margaret, she undergoes changes to ensure her husband’s lasting happiness no matter the cost.
