Book Recommendation: The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
It's been a bit over a year since I first read The Girl at Midnight. I liked it a lot that time. But I knew that before I could read the sequel, The Shadow Hour, I had to re-read this one first. And I'm so glad I did so. I still adore this book. And I had forgotten so much, haha. Now I'm ready for the sequel next. Yess. So excited. This book is still a four star for me, though. Because of the romance parts. Sigh. But other than that, I loved most of this book. The characters are all amazing to read about. And I simply love the writing.
I'm just so glad I decided to re-read this book. It took me some time, sadly, but it was worth it. Because I adore this book a lot. I love Caius the very most. And I adore Echo so much. She's such an amazing girl, and I'm so glad I got to know her again. All of these characters are awesome. I adored Ivy as well. And I love Dorian and Jasper oh so much. I ship them the most, lol. They are the cutest. I liked reading about the Ala too. I sort of liked Rowan. Sigh. But I'm mostly just angry that he exists, haha. So many people.
But gosh, the plot in this book is pretty exciting. I loved reading about the different people in it. Those who have feathers instead of hair. Those who have scales on their body. I wish that they could still turn into dragons. Aw. Would have been so awesome to read about, lol. But still loved them all. I loved how well this world were created. It is ours, yet not. I just liked getting to know about all of it. Though there is still so much I don't know. I liked the plot about the Firebird, and the hunt for it. It was interesting to read about.
I'm not sure what I wish to share about this book this time. So I might not write all that much. I just wanted to share my thoughts again, after having read this book for the second time. Though it is still a four star for me, I'm so glad I re-read it. Because I do truly adore it oh so much. Echo is amazing Caius is the best. And I love reading about them falling for each other. I loved reading about them being together. But I'm also so nervous. Sigh. I feel like this series could end badly for them. And I don't want that. Not at all.
The reason for why I'm not fully loving The Girl at Midnight, is still because of the romance. I mean. The romance is really about Echo and Caius. And they are truly the sweetest. But the issue is that Echo has a boyfriend. Sigh. Rowan. They have been together as a couple for two months. Have known each other for ten years. So it's a bit annoying for me. I can't stand love triangles. Echo has not broken up with him. Yet she's with Caius now. They haven't all been together yet, and I'm nervous. I need my happy ending.
I'm nervous yet super excited about the next two books in this trilogy. I'm reading The Shadow Hour next, ack, but then I must wait another year for the final book. Hmph. How mean. I do think it will be amazing, though. I'm just a bit nervous about the romance, lol. But I have hope. And I do think I will love both books. Because I do love the characters. And I loved the plot too. So yeah. I'm excited. Okay. I'm out of words. Just so glad I re-read this book. And if you haven't read it yet, then you really need to. So good.
