Last year, I read/reviewed, In a Holidaze.


Published August 15th 2017

Today, I read and reviewed The Stone Sky (The Broken Kingdom #3).


To start with an easy comparison, In a Holidaze is a standalone novel whereas The Stone Sky is the third novel in the Broken Earth trilogy. Holidaze is also a contemporary novel while Stone Sky falls under the dystopian fantasy genre.

While Holidaze focuses on one story, there a technically multiple for Stone Sky. With the Broken Earth trilogy, there are multiple subplots and multiple perspectives that all take place separately, but the story comes together under a centralized big picture plot.

Both stories are difficult to compare as one (Holidaze) is more of an “easy” light-hearted read and Stone Sky is part of a more “involved” series that took me a little more active involvement in my reading to wrap my head around all of the content. For choosing one novel as a favorite, this one is difficult as I greatly enjoyed The Stone Sky, but I think I would most likely re-read In a Holidaze.


Have you read any of these books? What did you think? What book were you reading this time last year and how does it compare to your current read?
