dear victoria schwab,
“Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human.” – Victor Vale
what i love even more is that you used the quote to introduce This Savage Song.
your complex characters are what i love most about your works. from kell to victor to august (and all the others), they are all so utterly real. they are all so snarky and a bit tragic (but not too self-pitying), which i find makes for the best characters.
your books were and still are a bright spot in the stress of everyday life. they are worlds that i can escape to for just a little while at least. i can confidently say that, right now, you are my favorite author of all time. it’s such a big statement that it almost scares me to say so. picking a favorite author is a hard thing for me!
i can’t wait to read Our Dark Duet when it comes out later this spring, and i’ll probably end up buying The Archived somewhere along the way. don’t even get me started on Vengeful!!
a final brief list of things i love about your books:
- kell’s coat
- dol (thank goodness he lived. i always end up far too attached to dogs, even more so than characters)
- ilsa and her magicalness
- white london&the dane twins
- the writing style of ADSOM
- mitch (and his cinnamon roll-ness)
- the fact that a collector’s edition of ADSOM is coming out (!!!)
and that’s just scratching the surface. i could talk all day about how much i love your books 🙂 thank you so much for writing.
