The blog for books and movies

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives.

  1. THIS SAVAGE SONG BY V.E SCHWAB follows a girl named Kate and a monster named August in a world full of danger, blood and ruin. This book captivates what it feels to be human and puts it into a lovely paradox about creatures from the night. Kate is a strong protagonist. She may act without thinking sometimes, but in the end the girl is made of steel and she cannot break. I admire it actually, quite different from the average protagonist in every YA book (yawn). August’s character really warms my heart. He is strong too, but not in the way that involves having to be able to fight, or to win. This book is great if something new is what you’re looking for. If you’re like me and get bored really easily of the same generic ‘the governments actually bad and we’re gonna rebel against them’ theme of books, then this is a perfect way to start straying away from that dystopian trope.
