A New York Times bestseller! "A bewitching gem...I absolutely loved every moment of this story." --Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Caraval series "If you loved the Hogwarts Library...you'll be right at home at Summershall." --Katherine Arden, New York Times bestselling author of The Bear and the Nightingale From the New York Times bestselling author of An Enchantment of Ravens comes an "enthralling adventure" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) about an apprentice at a magical library who must battle a powerful sorcerer to save her kingdom. All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer's Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery--magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. Then an act of sabotage releases the library's most dangerous grimoire, and Elisabeth is implicated in the crime. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them. As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she's been taught--about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined.… (mer)

So I read Margaret Rogerson's first book not too long ago and it's hard not to compare. I think her writing had gotten better and both books have felt very atmospheric. My mom says that they would make good movies because of how they are written. This was a really fun read and the world was very fun to read about. I like all the quirky elements that Rogerson adds in.

As far as characters, there are definitely characters to root for but I didn't feel like the romance was as strong in this one. It's not as big a part of the story, which is fine, but I just didn't feel like they had as strong a connection and chemistry. I also didn't like Nathaniel as well as I liked Rook. Silas was an interesting character though.

The story itself was just ok. It's kinda generic and I saw every twist coming. The plot is not necessarily the reason to read this book. Don't get me wrong, it's still a fun plot to read about but I found it pretty predictable. ( )

With impressive magical worldbuilding -- libraries full of sentient grimoires, sorcerers who harness demons, orphans who tend and separate books from people -- Rogerson's Sorcery of Thorns is a fast-paced adventure and a delightful YA romance, with a nuanced thematic and personified reflection on good and evil. Though it's a bit self-conscious in the plot execution, I was utterly captivated by the vision of opinionated books who can take off fingers or sing, and by the idea of sorcerers trapping demonic magic in grimoires, and the ultimate outcome of such a world. A lovely novel; I'll look for this author again. ( )

I didn’t write a review immediately after reading the book so I’ve forgotten some of my reasons for choosing the rating that I did. Thanks, goldfish brain. I do know that I spent the entire time reading the book thinking “okay, I want to fight demon books.” So there’s something I never thought I’d be jealous about. I loved the magic system - this is a universe so detailed that it would make sense to have more books set in it. It ended sort of...tidily, which is my only complaint. There was this huge build up and everything is tense and then...womp womp.

Also I know we shouldn’t judge books on their covers but wow, the cover. That color palette and paint job is everything. Charlie Bowater is such a talented artist. ( )

This was a light quick read but I think I need to stop reading YA - it's just not giving me the satisfactory involvement that I want. I loved the background to this story - it's inventive and interesting. I also like the characters although Nathaniel was a bit wishy washy to me. But something about the plot and pacing just didn't work for me. I enjoyed but wanted more. ( )
