Sereadipity (noun): when you read a book without knowing much about it beforehand, or with very low expectations, and you end up enjoying it much more than you thought you would.
Hello and welcome to my second ‘Moments of Sereadipity’ (sereadipity is a word that I have made up) which is a feature I have created where I write about a book that has surprised me or a book that has dissapointed me. Today, I will be explaining why I had a ‘moment of sereadipity’ with the book State of Sorrow!
- Book: State of Sorrow
- Author: Melinda Salisbury
- Year Published: 2018
I didn’t know much about this book before I started reading it so I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, I really enjoyed it. I didn’t think it would be as political as it was, but that’s what I liked about it as the scheming and political conflicts made the book much more intriguing. It had an original concept and nuanced characters so although it wasn’t perfect it was a very engaging and fun read.
