    If curiosity killed the cat it was satisfaction that brought it back This is one of those rare few books that really shows me why we need a 3 12 star rating and I don’t like to give 12 stars This was so fun and a four star book for me and also it bugged the shit out of me to the point where I texted someone to bitch about it But I honestly did have so much funLet’s get the complaining out of the way god I fucking hate 2004 YA I mean this text has a bunch of homophobia and racism in there for “realism” and yet somehow it still managed to sound like How No Teen Talks Ever Everything that happens with Corny kind of pisses me off a lot And some of how Kaye’s being biracial is introduced rubbed me the wrong way? I can’t really figure out why It just felt weirdBUTSo first of all on the good side the fairies The way Holly Black draws her fairy worlds and fairy characters is genuinely so imaginative gorgeous and creepy Every time I dive into one of her books I find myself both terrified and enad with her fairy world and I am so okay with thatAnd importantly this is a very thematically strong book There’s the fantastic meta narrative about growing up and learning to live with how others perceive you There is no easy fix for Kaye’s life; no box to easily fit into She is a member of the fairy world of the human world and she can’t figure out which one is which Kaye though is a really unlikable lead I don’t mean that she’s flawed – though she is – I mean I actively didn’t like her at all and I love unlikable lady leads I found that she was one of those early YA protagonists who’s written just generic enough that she’s easy to make into a self insert She’s not awful But she’s very selfish And not in a delicious way — in a way that’s really annoying because she keeps fucking up and the narrative doesn’t notice or criticize it Oh but I will admit I fucking love Roiben I really hate reading YA sometimes because inevitably if there’s some male love interest that everyone fangirls over the female lead will be unuestionably the best character in the narrative I mean to mention another Holly Black book The Cruel Prince?? some of you just don’t appreciate Jude like you should But no Roiben is so incredibly likable and compelling It’s a cliche trope but I adore it when characters who keep up walls fall for characters who encourage them not to do so I absolutely loved himThe main thing I want to say is that this is just a really fun book It's so short that I basically bingeread it and oh loved it And do you guys even understand how fucking short this book is? it's 320 pages but every page is like in sixteen point font and also half the size of a normal book page and I'm honestly just confused as to how this is a full novel This would be great for fans of any of Holly Black’s current books or anyone who just wants to read a really fun trashy YA book with a gorgeous fairy world and a really good love interest Hey I liked itBlog | Goodreads | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube⭐Look out for my review of book two and my review of book three

    Read #4? probablyStarted on June 4 2019Finished on June 5 2019 “If you would help me draw this arrow His eyes narrowed and he shook his head If not then push it in as deep as you can and hope it kills me” Still a hoe for Kaye and Roiben and I'm not sorry about itThis masterpiece made me do a re read My eyes will never be the same Petition for KayeRoiben fanartOG REVIEW THAT I'M STILL AMAZED SO PEOPLE HAVE LIKED SO THANK YOU IF YOU'RE ONE OF THEM↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓I'm going to be up front this series? You will either love it or hate it Personally I absolutely love gritty real lifefantasy stories when they're written well and I think Holly Black does the combination so much freaking justice It doesn't try too hard to be overly badass Kaye is such a great lead although I don't always see myself in her actions throughout the book I still liked her because she was real I never got the sense that Holly Black was trying to impress me; she was just writing about a real girl And honestly when I compare female leads in other books I always think about Kaye and if they live up to her standards which is not often enough for meSo many people cut down Tithe for its objectionable content but I was actually able to find a lot of realism in the way most of the characters behaved As I was growing up the teenagers I knew cursed like sailors and were always trading stories about sex Unfortunately or not it's a way of life nowadays teenagers are naturally curious I think in this case Holly Black's choice to include these situations and words make her characters come alive However that's not all Tithe is about people want to focus on that but it's only a small portion of the entire book Tithe is different and some people just don't enjoy or understand how YA can fit that profile But that's the one thing I appreciate about Holly Black her ability to take YA to another level She proves that the genre doesn't have to be a complete trope fest with beginnings and ends that fit together perfectlyFor me Holly Black's writing in Tithe is really hard to pin down It's like a combination of trippy and poetic The way she describes things you feel like you're reading poetry I love the detail she pours into Tithe I think my favorite sections have to be when she describes the faeries and where they live she makes it all gothic y and enchanting and it just makes me feel like I have a spell cast over me that forces me to be in this complete daze I can't get out of it if I wanted to I just keep reading every sentence she writes and loving them

    Tithe is a very raw very dark faerie tale While not suitable for younger readers lots of swearing random torture and violence and mature themes I loved its take on the darker side of faerie It deals with faerie themes like Changelings and the knowing of one's True Name very well and Roiben is probably my favorite faery hero of all time Kind of like Sephiroth If you know who Sephiroth is you'll understand The writing was a teensy bit sporadic and hard to follow at first I found myself going back and re reading passages to understand them All in all though a great story for older mature audiences By the time I got to its seuel Ironside I was hooked on Holly Black

    I was not expecting to be blown away by this and gosh am I so glad I kept my expectations low The main reason I read these books is because I absolutely loved The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King And since I don't know what to do with myself while I wait for The ueen of Nothing I decided to get to know about the other faerie courts which is set in the same world as TCP Kaye thought that she was just an ordinary girl When one day her friend mistakenly enters a faerie realm things change for her She discovers that she is not an ordinary but one of the lesser faeries A pixie to be exact Her whole life has been a lie And Kaye wants to know exactly how she came to live in the human realm disguised as a human without knowing her true nature The first half of Tithe was not very interesting It was absolutely boring to be honest But when gorgeous Roiben came into the picture I became invested wink If it wasn't for Roiben I might have DNF ed this he made it worthwhile Pre ReadIf you think the only reason I'm reading this book is because it's set in the same world as The Cruel Prince then you are absolutely CORRECT ding ding ding

    Ugh I don't know where to start with this one so I'm gonna jump right in I didn't like it It was all just a raging bunch of WTF? for me I mean it was random My brain hurts so this isn't going to be a very coherent reviewBefore I go to my detailed ravings it's best if I gave a brief overview of what this book was about It's the story of Kaye a changeling who was put under a glamour to hide her true green skinned self and lives with her rockstar wannabe mother Ellen Her life ultimately changes when her mother was almost murdered in a pathetic lame excuse of an attempted stabbing and having nowhere else to go they return to their home townHere Kaye suddenly finds herself reunited with her childhood imaginary friends who needs her to help them plot against the unseelie court and win the freedom of the faeries Narrative It was painful It's like listening to a child with ADHD jumping from one thing to the next Everything seemed so rushed that you don't get a single connection to the storyFirst example of it popped up right there in the freaking prologueFrank Stepping Razor's drummer grabbed Lloyd's arm Lloyd had just enough time to punch Frank in the face before other patrons tackled him and somebody called the policeBy the time the cops got there Lloyd couldn't remember anything He was mad as hell though cursing Ellen at the top of his lungs The police drove Kaye and her mother to Lloyd's apartment and waited while Kaye packed their clothes and stuff into plastic garbage bags Ellen was on the phone trying to find a place for them to crashHoney Ellen said finally we're going to have to go to Grandma'sSo a bit of background info that's the scene where Lloyd the dude Kaye's mum is dating the dude they live with tried to kill Kaye's mum And that is literally the single paragraph where it is mentioned I don't know about you but if my boyfriend suddenly lost his marbles and tried to kill me I'd be in a state of hysteria I'd be wondering what the flying fook was that all about?? I'd be dedicating at least an extra paragraph or two to explore the psychological damage that's done me and probably wrap things up a little smoothlyBut nope; not this Apparently they're happy with We're going to have to go to grandma's and the next scene they're living with Nana and Kaye's off to some rave like some whacko never tried to gut her mama Like wtf is wrong with you people?And this sort of thing continues persistently throughout the rest of the book I guess what I'm trying to say is the narrative came out as choppy and rushed; it was emotionally detached from the readers like an exposition of events This was happening and then this this followed by a whopping amount of this Characters And this is the second reason why I simply couldn't like Tithe I just couldn't relate or even respect any of themI'm sorry Black was I supposed to root for Kaye and her friends? Was I supposed to care view spoilerwhen Janet died hide spoiler

    Holly Black’s writing was my first introduction to fae fiction; as a kid I was obsessed with all sorts of fae mythology but typically was limited to nonfiction until the first time I saw Tithe on the “new” shelf at my library I must have checked this book out and reread it four or five times within the first couple of years but this was my first reread since I was a preteen and I had no idea what to expect If curiosity killed the cat it was satisfaction that brought it back I had forgotten so much of the plot in this book and the first thing that surprised me upon rereading it was actually how problematic some of the writing is If you’re a newer fan of Holly’s and haven’t read her old work here’s your warning this book involves racist remarks homophobic slurs attempted sexual assault and some potentially sleazy romance dynamics most of this going entirely unchallenged as the story unfolds After one character tries to assault the protagonist there are even one or two instances in which she talks about feeling flattered by his refusal to take “no” for an answer “And if I said nothing at all?”“Then I would point out that sometimes if you look at something out of the corner of your eye you can see right through glamour” On a positive note I had also forgotten how totally addicting the storyline is how fun and gothic the aesthetic feels and how lovable Roiben is While I stand by the fact that the blossoming romance has potential to be problematic it genuinely doesn’t feel as though Kaye is taking advantage of him with her power over his name Everything comes across as fully consensual albeit uite a bit rushed and insta lovey “I am your servant” the King of the Unseelie Court said his lips a moment from her own “Consider it done” More than anything though I just love the way Holly crafts her fae worlds Unlike most of today’s popular fae writers she stays true to the old folklore in many prominent fashions and my favorite aspect of that is the way she weaves in different types of feyfolk like sprites pixies kelpies etc I have always said that I think Holly is almost singlehandedly responsible for the world of fae YA fiction that so many of us now know and love and after reading Tithe despite its imperfections I adamantly stand by that belief

    ★ 1 5 ★There’s no way I’m going to write an entire review for this Nope I'm just proud I managed to skim and not give up entirely; that's an achievement on its ownLet me sum this book up for you Imagine a story filled with only unlikeabletrashy characters there wasn’t a single person or thing I liked—I swear everything was terrible a nonexistentpoor plot cliche male jerks that are accepted because they’re of course “ extremely attractive etc and all of that tied in with choppychildish writing Sounds wonderful doesn’t it?yeah noHonestly save your time and read The Cruel Prince by Holly Black—it’s infinitely better than this I’m still shocked the two books are written by the same person; but I guess that’s proof that writing is a craft that can be improved over time

    Kaye is obviously incredibly lovely and then it turns out she's a magical fairy Sure her life is hard but it's the fairies making it that way because she's so important that they're all out to get her Look what I'm saying is it's like the author tried to think of all the coolest latest trends among teenagers and tried to mash them into a fairy story Kaye is also not anyone's typical teenager She has super special protagonist syndromeI found the Faerie described by the author uite interesting and the details of that land were the one bright spot in the novel and along with my boredom probably the only thing that kept me readingYou name and it and it's not been done very well the writing is messy the characters are contrived and the romance has all of the warmth of a burned out match
