  1. review in progressReview May 2012 Five stars Four and half Quite possibly my favorite of the trilogy.In running for best read of 2012.Original Thoughts November 2009 I am so surprised by the tremendous backlash against this series arguably non traditional romantic direction And yet the backlash is fascinating I see Katsa painted by some reviewers as man hating because she doesn t want to get married or to have children, which is an interpretation that never dawned on me when I read the book, and [...]

  2. As seen on The ReadventurerIt s with a heavy heart that I m giving Bitterblue only 2 stars This book was one of the most anticipated reads of the year for me and will go down my personal history as one of the most massive disappointments It has to be acknowledged, though, that most of the reviews of Bitterblue so far have been very positive and contained words like genius and masterpiece in them My opinion appears to be out of norm.After recently rereading both Kristin Cashore s earlier books, I [...]

  3. Graceling fans, prepare to be conflicted Fire fans, prepare to be disappointed Because Bitterblue goes where Fire has already gone before, and not only does this book not learn from Fire s few flaws, it repeats them and makes than a few along the way too If you re an ardent fan of the first two books, maybe you ll enjoy seeing Po, Katsa, and Fire again, but, besides that, this book s too needlessly complex, too poorly developed, and just too long.So the main theme s the same as Fire s, a girl [...]

  4. This book It was so wonderful and so sad at the same time The feelsI love this book so much Bitterblue got to meet Fire OMG This is going to be one of my crazy reviews I am all over the place with my feels I love Queen Bitterblue so much And her father was that horrible man from the second book that I wanted a giant to stomp him into the ground He tortured animals, people and woman I can t even people I CAN T EVEN And at one point Bitterblue and her crew find some journals they have to decipher [...]

  5. If you know me at all, then you know I have been DYING to read Bitterblue when I first heard about it I honestly couldn t bear the wait This book was first slated to come out one year ago, in April, 2011 Then it got pushed to September Then The publishers pushed it even farther to 2012 I was seriously this close to explodingBut it was okay I m a patient person No really, I am I m no stranger to the agony a reader goes through when they re literally shaking with excitement and anxiousness for a b [...]

  6. Actual rating 4.5 starsEgregious spoilers will be behind a spoiler tag, but there may be a minor spoiler or two that I would not have considered a spoiler until there s a complaint So be warned.First Line outside the Prologue Queen Bitterblue never meant to tell so many people so many lies Cover Story I want to live in a place that requires keys like this Classy.I like how the covers of Graceling, Fire, and now Bitterblue tie in together They re very matchy matchy while retaining a unique look, [...]

  7. I ve been sitting in front of a computer screen for around ten minutes because I truly do not know how to begin this review This book is incredible, and I want to do it justice but at the same time, I don t know if I can give it the objectivity it needs This book is so, so deeply important to me, in so many ways I ve read very few books in my life that made me feel every emotion on the spectrum, and this is perhaps one of the best This book is many things, but above all, it s a story of hope a s [...]

  8. For those who don t know This takes place 6 years AFTER Graceling s time And Bitterblue was 10 or 11 then, so she s date able age now I betcha there will be romance And just to throw this out there, because I JUST finished Graceling and the feeling is still strong I HATE THIS BOOK Not really, it was fantastically written I just wish the author would continue on with Katsa and Po, the fact she s leaving us hanging over a freaking cliff pisses me off I ve heard of cliffhangers, but at least the au [...]

  9. I really wanted to love this book It started out really good, but half way through I was ready for this book to start rapping up When it did finally start rapping up, it just ended with ZERO resolution There has to be another book coming or this will be a major flop The only thing I got from it was the extent of Leck s evil doing We finally see how truly twisted and royally f ed up he was And that was pretty much the story Bitterblue does do a little self exploration, but we just barely see the [...]

  10. I cannot wait for this book to come out Contrary to popular feeling, I am happy Fire and Graceling ended the way they did it leaves readers with the satisfaction that the romance wasn t for nothing and the character s feelings were real, and a sense of reality, of not know how each ended Most of the reviews I ve read that have been against Bitterblue being the main character, I have found that almost all of the readers feel this way because they want to know how Po and Katsa ended Newsflash THAT [...]

  11. 4 MINDBENDING STARS The I see and hear, the I realize how much I don t know Oh my god, I love how this book brings the two previous ones together so perfectly It s been several years since I read the other books in this trilogy so it took me a while to get back into this whole world Graceling and Fire were among my favorite books about 5 years ago, but sadly I didn t remember a lot about them when I started this one Once I did though, I just couldn t stop reading and I HAD to finish it as soon [...]

  12. Oh, Kristin Cashore, I would trust you with my life This series breaks my heart and patches it all back together again This book was so different from the first two in pace, but somehow, and I say this almost reluctantly, that made the end meaningful to me I am all about editing in stories, and for the first half of this book, the redundancies seemed unnecessary and boring But, I don t actually think they are now I think they had some purpose, though I don t know that I could articulate it for [...]

  13. Actual rating 3.5 stars.This is the third book in the Graceling trilogy and focuses on Queen Bitterblue, who was just a child when the reader last encountered her, in the first book Now she is ruling in her father s place and attempting to right the wrongs of her country s past This proves a difficult task than previously thought when even her most trusted advisers appear to be keeping secrets from her Bitterblue realises just how out of touch she is with her people and how deeply their mistrus [...]

  14. 8 years after the story of Graceling, Bitterblue is queen and things are just not adding up in her kingdom and she is determined to understand would make her a better ruler.The Story What I felt when I finished book was that I spent the entire time under King Leck s rule and couldn t really understand what was happening The resolution of all the problems was really underwhelming and I thought the length of the book was unnecessary for the end result The book really could have just been a novella [...]

  15. I M SO SAD I absolutely LOVED Graceling and liked Fire though not as much its predecessor, and I have been waiting for SO long for Bitterblue to come out However, this book really dragged, and it was as mentally strange as the those whose minds are feeling the after effects of being warped by King Leck.The biggest thing of all is NOT ENOUGH SAF I know the book had to do than just the romance, but it was disappointing how little he was in the book And the end I felt it was really unfair view spo [...]

  16. I was so surprised when I started reading this book I liked Graceling and liked Fire even I expected to like Bitterblue but I couldn t force myself It seemed like Kristin Cashore took steps backward It was jumbled, disorganized, and scatterbrained in the plot and I found most of the characters grossly underdeveloped The romantic relationship should have just been left out because it was paid so little attention and it seemed so insignificant It was not essential to any character s experience or [...]

  17. And now it s over I think this was my favourite book in this series I was so intrigued by the plot and this book raised SO MANY QUESTIONS There were like a million plottwists Bitterblue was kicking ass and I just liked it than the other two although they were really good too I think I m going to miss this world so badly And OMG THE ENDING I WANT MORE WHAT THE F HAPPENS Only, I felt like it could have been 200 pages shorter but that s the case with all of Kristin Cashore s books It was pretty sl [...]

  18. I ll start by saying I m a huge fan of Kristin Cashore s novels I was completely in awe of Graceling and Fire and can honestly say that there isn t anything I d change about them I m sure they have their flaws, but I enjoyed every last bit of each page, line, and paragraph That said, my expectations for Bitterblue were ridiculously high Sometimes, I m worried to read highly anticipated novels I don t want to be let down after all the buildup Bitterblue, however, didn t worry me one bit Cashore t [...]

  19. The first thing I am going to do after writing this review is take my copy of Bitterblue, hide it in some deep, dark recess of my attic where I will hopefully forget it exists, and pretend as if Kristin Cashore did not write a third Graceling Realm book Perhaps I should start off by saying that I am a HUGE Kristin Cashore fan I ve re read both Graceling and Fire so many times that I can give you a detailed scene by scene synopsis just as easily as the author herself That being said, I ve been lo [...]

  20. I should have done my reviews for Graceling and Fire right after finishing them, because now all I can think to write about them is I LOVE THEM SO MUCH, and WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO BITTERBLUE Bitterblue picks up after a very creepy prologue ten years after Graceling, when Bitterblue is 18 and fully stationed as queen of Monsea, struggling to find her place amid a kingdom just waking up from a 35 year sleep under Leck s rule She is trapped under mountains of paper and the thumb of her advisors, [...]

  21. I read for an hour each morning while I work out This was one of those books that made me forget I was exercising and that s high praise The author, Kristin Cashore, said she had trouble letting go of Bitterblue I did, too.

  22. I ve been waiting forever I read Graceling and Fire before I ever started blogging I fell in love with the world that Kristin Cashore created Graceling and Fire are two of the very few books that I ve ever read than once That list consists of Harry Potter, Twilight, Wicked Lovely, Graceling and Fire That s how much I loved them So, as you can imagine, I had high expectations for Bitterblue.Bitterblue was a much different book than the other two While Graceling and Fire are full of action and ad [...]

  23. If Graceling was great, Bitterblue is near perfect.I haven t been this captivated while reading in a long, long time This is what I expected of books like The Queen of the Tearling Bitterblue is the most likeable, rounded character I ve come across in YA fantasy since first encountering Tamora Pierce Example She isn t pretty Yes, she does think once or twice that she wished she was perhaps, just a little, but this isn t an issue, simply a wistful passing moment She doesn t suddenly become pretty [...]

  24. I am lucky to have a good friend who is a bookseller who received an advance reader s copy of Bitterblue and gave it to me Graceling was really good Fire was magical and still my favorite But BitterblueBitterblue is practically transcendant I wish I could find the words to describe how it really made me feel Cashore has developed into an author who is able to imbue so much character, feeling, and personality into her characters that I felt I was experiencing what Bitterblue was experiencing it w [...]

  25. Plot 16 20 Characters 15 20 Creativity 15 20Writing 18 20 Pace 7 10Ending 7 103.5 5 stars78 100 B This book had so much potential I loved the beginning, everything about it was so gripping and interesting but then it didn t go anywhere I felt like there was no REAL plot I also feel like there didn t have to be a third book in this series Nothing extra ordinary happened But if I was rating this series as a whole I d have to give it 4 5 stars, I loved it

  26. Moved pretty slow, but I enjoyed seeing how the kingdom Katsa and Po are doing post Graceling I think some parts could have been shortened, lengthy sections about decoding and puzzle breaking dragged on It was at those points that I would put down the book or struggle to keep going I loved all the new characters though, Saf was great.

  27. Well I ve finished it up and yes I m disappointed I think the readers that gave it the low ratings are right.This was her weakest book.Let me start off with things I liked The drawings before each section at the end of the book The A Who s Who of the World As We Know It section Giddon PoHere s what I had trouble with Spoilers Bitterblue In the first half of the book her actions and personality seemed very young By the second half of the book she seemed bossy and I really wanted to slap her.I mea [...]

  28. Bitterblue is such a well developed character My favorite scenes were any time Po and Katsa showed up Miss those two a lot.

  29. 10 10Nothing I say here can justify how flawless and perfect this book was, and how much of an emotional impact it had on me I literally cannot put what I m feeling into words right now It s like I ve been waiting my entire life for this moment, for this one book that had everything I ve always wanted to read about My heart was crushed into a million pieces, and put back together again I cannot get over how perfect the three books in this series were woven together in the end It was literally li [...]
