Wow, “Children’s” book loved by an ADULT

Book: The School for Good and Evil | Author: Soman Chainani | Genre: Fantasy; Young Adult Fiction; Fairy Tale | Rating: 4.5/5

Okay so this is a 6 book series (hexalogy)! So instead of trying to discuss the entire list of books I am just going to write a review per book. Okay let’s be honest.. I have no excuse for falling into these books besides TikTok. I wish I had the excuse that I started reading these when I was a kid and now I just had to finish them because of childhood memories… No I am a 24yr old who is reading these supposed children’s books. But might I add that I really think people should stop saying children’s and just say young adult when it comes to these bad boys. Because they can easily entertain an older audience who is into any type of fantasy and possibly has a thing for Fairy Tales. (Love the tv show Once Upon a Time)

So this book follows two best friends named Agatha and Sophie. Each year two children are kidnapped from their town, one good and one evil and taken to the school for good and evil. Annnnddd yes you guessed it, this is where all the good and evil fairy tale characters went when they were children! As much as I hate to admit it the character Sophie makes this book. She is prissy and hilarious. I am always so surprised when a book makes me laugh. Soman has a real way of describing his characters in a non corny way. Also he keeps the interest going non stop with great story lines. Am I embarrassed that I love these books so much? YESSS! Did I read them all in a few weeks? DOUBLE YESSS!

Okay my rating isn’t really fair because some parts were sorta childish, but then again it’s a “children’s book” so why am I complaining? Why do I not just read books in my age range? Because I am a free spirit that’s why!! The book seemed to think Farting jokes were funny and I think that’s just the only reason why I cringed. Also how the covers on the books throughout the hexalogy show Agatha, a beautiful porcelain gothic princess but somehow she is described as ugly? Yeah I don’t get it either. This book takes you through a roller coaster of emotions as two best friends who you question the entire time fight for their friendship, and against it because of a —– yes you guessed it —>BOY! However, this book did surprise me by the amount of power in friendship. Overall this book really hooks you and don’t be surprised if you end up buying them all on Amazon Prime and wait by your door all day for them to arrive!!

I don’t know if anything I just typed makes sense, but then again my blog isn’t a blog for people who need well thought out posts but more so enjoy sporadic thinking. So stay tuned for my other posts about these books! They will probably be even more terrible than this one!

xoxo, your trashy blogger

Let’s get a few things straight. No beating around anyone’s bush –> straight to the factttsss. This blog will only consist of posts that I will immediately regret after posting due to the fact that I have no business having any type of opinion on absolutely anything.. Also if you are hoping to read some genius interpretation of some of the finest literature please do both of us a favor and just block me, or whatever you do on WordPress to completely erase the risk of you reading my trash reviews that will make you instantly hate me and want to tell me why.

Also if you haven’t noticed…. I am not a writer, and I usually never reread anything. (Or am I just that bad at English that I can’t form a correct sentence?) So if bad punctuation and incorrect use of words drives you crazy please join the people who already hate me because I am a disgrace to book bloggers everywhere.

This is my little oasis where I can drink my wine, probably get a little too tipsy and post my reviews about the books that I am usually too embarrassed to openly say I am reading. (Why do I still love young teen love, gross)

Okay now if you are a visual person and want to know what kind of blog this is. Picture a trashcan on fire. No further explanation needed.
