“Invictus” was one of my most anticipated reads for 2017 and let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
Rating: 5/5 Stars
You’ve probably seen photos of this book all over my Bookstagram account already but finally, we’re going to talk about it. Thank you to the ever amazing Little Brown & Company for the ARC I received at YallWest. I’m also the proud owner of the BEAUTIFUL hardcover as well.
Before I dive into the review I wanted to talk about why it took me so long to read. Usually, I read books VERY quickly. Especially the books I love. “Invictus” has taken me at least 2 months to read.
I know right? Two months to read a book is unheard of. This happened for two reasons. 1) I loved it so much I didn’t want it to end. 2) My life has been ridiculously busy and finding time to read is VERY hard. I’ll talk about that more in another post. Now onto the review!!!!
“Invictus” by Ryan Graudin Synopsis:
“Invictus” truly makes the concept of time travel seem plausible and real. The events in history that the crew visits are incredibly detailed and it seems like you’re right there with them. As a result, you truly feel as though it would be possible to live through these events again.
Now, let’s talk about the crew of the Invictus since I keep bringing them up. Graudin does an amazing job bringing these characters to life. From the moment you meet them you fall in love. And let’s not forget about Saffron. Saffron is a red panda (look them up, they are ADORABLE) and hangs out with the crew. If you don’t like red pandas after meeting Saffron what is wrong with you? Haha. By the end of the book, your heart has been taken on an emotional journey with these characters and you truly feel as though they are apart of your family too. I cannot wait to hear what you think of them. I can’t even choose a favorite because they all have something special about them that I adore. Okay, wait, I lied. My favorite character might be Saffron. lol *insert pic of red panda now*
Please, comment down below what you thought of the book…I need someone to discuss this with asap!!
And now, I am onto my next read: “All The Crooked Saints” by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve only begun the first chapter today and I’m already loving it. She’s also one of my favorite authors so I have high expectations for this story. Until next time, Happy Reading, Book Lovelies! <3
