Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #1)

I’ve seen this book ALLL over the book world for years. I’m so glad to finally have taken the time to read it! Also, this is the VERY first book I made some tabs! I just had a few laugh out loud moments that I wanted to remember!

I was really worried about this being middle grade and I wouldn’t enjoy it as much as everyone else. I admit, I don’t read much MG but I think that’s going to change.

I loved Morrigan from the very beginning! She’s really sarcastic but all she really craves is love. She was fun and quirky! Actually, pretty much all the characters are and that’s what makes this so interesting and fun. I loved them all and they are all so unique. There are some parts of this book that are so sad. I think that Morrigan ends up finding her tribe and it’s what I loved the most.

Can I take a minute to shout out to Fen? I’m not a cat person but she was one of my favorites!! haha

There is so much world building and Townsend did an amazing job with it! I felt like this was kind of a chunky book for MG but I never felt bored or like the story dragged. The one thing that drove me crazy were ALL the secrets. It actually drives Morrigan crazy and I get it. I do like intrigue and mystery but I hate waiting until the end for ANY of them to be revealed.

I do get why people think that it’s similar to Harry Potter with the trials. I didn’t really get any of those vibes. I felt like this was a story that stood out on it’s own. I did wish that we got a little more. I felt like the trials were so short and didn’t really take much time. More details or more extravagant trials would have elevated this book for me.

Overall, this was such a great middle grade read. I’m really excited to read the next book but I have to wait a week for my second readathon! If you are looking for a funny and interesting middle grade, this is a great option. Just remember… so many secrets!!!

  1. Yay! I’m so glad that you enjoyed this one πŸ˜€ Reading this reminded me of my reading experience with Harry Potter — not necessarily the content as much as how it made me feel to read it. So whimsical and magical! I don’t read a lot of MG either but I’m so glad I picked this one up. Looking forward to the rest of the series πŸ™‚ Great review!

      • Oh nice! I ordered book two … like… maybe a month ago on book depository coz the one bookstore on the island is closed and apparently don’t have it in stock for home delivery, so I’ve been waiting all this time πŸ˜‚ I hope book two is just as great πŸ˜€

        • Nice!! I got mine JUST before my local bookstores closed. They were actually having a week long sale and I ended up going a few days before they closed. I didn’t know how serious all this was then. Butttt I got a good mix of books and this was one of them! I hope we both enjoy it!! πŸ™‚
