StoryGraph Saturday: Sorcerer to the Crown

StoryGraph Saturday is a weekly thing where I randomly choose a book from my To Read pile on StoryGraph and show it off to both remind myself that it’s there and to show it to you, Dear Reader, in case you might find it interesting, too.

Sorcerer to the Crown (Sorcerer Royal #1)
by Zen Cho
371 pages
First published in 2015

From The StoryGraph:

Magic and mayhem collide with the British elite in this whimsical and sparkling debut.

At his wit’s end, Zacharias Wythe, freed slave, eminently proficient magician, and Sorcerer Royal of the Unnatural Philosophers—one of the most respected organizations throughout all of Britain—ventures to the border of Fairyland to discover why England’s magical stocks are drying up.

But when his adventure brings him in contact with a most unusual comrade, a woman with immense power and an unfathomable gift, he sets on a path that will alter the nature of sorcery in all of Britain—and the world at large…

I’ve considered reading this book off and on again since I first saw it at the bookstore… probably right after it came out, but for some reason I’ve never picked it up. I couldn’t tell you why. I should pick it up sometime soon. This summer, perhaps.

  1. It’s called “The End of Us” by Colleen Hoover. I read about it somewhere, and saw it had a high goodreads average, so I tried it. Can you say melodrama? I understand that things are bad for many, but does the heroine have to be the most beautiful woman ever with a good heart who has no friends and just happens to become best friends with someone and there’s the “gay friend” who pops up occasionally to show how open minded the author is….bleh….it’s like a b movie made into a book

  2. I’ve heard about Hoover’s books before, and everyone I’ve seen who has read them says pretty much the same thing– melodramatic and unrealistic. I’m guessing you won’t read any of her other books?

  3. You think?😉I just don’t understand 4.4 on good reads with a decent amount of reviews. How does she have that much money to pay reviewers?!

  4. There are certain books I hesitate before reading. But I also read books on a whim, like the one I finished yesterday, which I did not like as much as the high praise reviews…so who knows….
