Book spine appreciation & The Betrayals review 📖
The Betrayals by Bridget Collins – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Wow, so I don’t even know where to start with this book. Just like I loved her previous book, The Binding, this story had me so gripped that I finished it in three sittings (two of which were until 3am…) The only way I could think to describe it would be Harry Potter meets The Queen’s Gambit with an added dose of magical realism and twists that will leave you audibly gasping throughout.
Despite the fact that at times Bridget Collins’s writing was just a bit too clever for me (some of the details about the grand jeu, the game played in the book, went a little bit over my head!), I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it! (Also bonus points for the gorgeous cover hiding underneath the dust jacket of the hardback edition, I’m so obsessed with it ✨)
