YOU REVIEW: MP!er Shazina shares her thoughts on ‘The Dolls’ by Kiki Sullivan. Let’s dive into the pages of this captivating and full of mystery book.
Describe the plot of ‘The Dolls’ in a tweet – less than 140 characters please!
The Dolls by Kiki Sullivan is completely captivating & full of mysteries. In Carrefour there’s no escaping the past or the secrets it holds.
Without giving anything away, does the ending make you want to read the next in the series?
Definitely, the ending has left me really wanting to know what it would be like in another place that have male witches. With the ending of The Dolls I feel Kiki can take the plot anywhere, and I cannot wait for the next book.
What genre would you class the book as?
What was the best bit?
The best part that stood out for me was definitely the partying in New Orleans, it just reminded me of The Originals, amazing.
Anything you didn’t like?
I personally didn’t like how Peregrine and Chloe were so very laid back about all the threats and mostly the misuse of their abilities. Also the relationship between Eveny and Caleb, though I really wanted them to get together the bases of which the relationship started off from was really weak for me to actually look forward to reading, which was really disappointing.
Would you recommend ‘The Dolls’ to your friends?
Yes, because I would really want to know their thoughts on this novel and because the plot line was gripping enough for me to want to the next book.
Do you prefer ebooks or physical books?
Physical copies hands down. I’ve had first hand experience with both types and I’m definitely a traditional physical book person, plus who doesn’t enjoy re-arranging their bookshelves
Do you think it would appeal to girls or boys more? Or both?
I personally think that this novel is more appealing towards girls, mainly because it’s centred around a group of girls and their lives as witches, plus there’s a lot of shopping and focus of their outfits which kind of got annoying – though I’m a girl too I just didn’t want to know about what they wore more about what they were going to progress as a character. However with the next installment bringing more male characters to the plot I feel it will open up to be more for both boys and girls.
Anything else you’d like to tell us about the book?
I think that everyone should give this book a chance, though it takes time for you to piece the puzzle together, it gets interesting. Enough for you to want more when the last page is read, savour the read and enjoy :)
