There is so much I want to say about Curious Tides, but I'll preface everything by saying, 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘪𝘵! I received my Turn the Page Tours copy on Friday and finished it Sunday. I could not put this book down. It has quickly become one of my favorites of the year!
This is listed as a YA dark academia fantasy, I'd put it more in the New Adult category. Though upper YA could still definitely read it. And while I haven't read A Deadly Education yet, the synopsis (swipe for it) saying it's a bit like Ninth House is not wrong. There's a secret society, magic, and a FMC who's trying to find herself and overcome the loss of her best friend. Plus it sucks you in just like Ninth House does.
I really enjoyed the multiple POV. I think it gave us a better look at how both Baz and Emory were aligned, and the way so much became clear in the end - how so many people were connected without realizing it - really was so satisfying. And while I had some guesses that were actually right about certain things throughout the book, I ended up just being smug that I was right instead of upset it.
Now for the look of this book - IT'S GORGEOUS? I mean, just look at it. And the details throughout the book were just as captivating.
I am so happy I got an arc of this book, but that means it hasn't even come out yet and I'm already obsessing over when the next book in the series will be released. Please, Simon & Schuster, put me out of my misery and tell us the release date!
