I do not have time to read, but the books just keep getting stuck to my face. UF, HF, YA, fluffy romance, whatever. I love it all.
But I might judge you if you hand out five stars all willy nilly.
This was one of the more imaginative worlds I've seen in this genre. A magical carnival run by vampires in steampunk Victorian clothing? I LOVED that part. It was like The Night Circus with a sense of humor. I did lose interest about halfway, but I don't know if I can blame the book. It was a little hijinxy with all the capers Criminy and Letitia got into, but it was still entertaining. I just think I'm vampired out and wasn't fully in the mood for this one, hence the three stars. If I had read it in the height of my urban fantasy mania it may have gotten 4.
I did love Criminy though. How could I not?
"What are you doing?" I asked him. "I'm letting you get used to the idea of me," he said idly. "I'm pretending to be harmless. Is it working?"
