The Unbinding of Mary Reade Reviews

  • Acqua

    The Unbinding of Mary Reade is a historical fiction standalone novel following Mary Reade, a girl who dresses as a boy to become a pirate, before and after she met Anne Bonny, a pirate girl Mary will fall in love with.

    I didn’t have any strong feelings about this book. Nothing stood out to me, and the only thing I actually liked about it was the premise.

    When I read a book about pirates, I hope to find interesting adventures and people exploring new places, not 300 pages of the main character tryi

    Well, I tried. I got through the first 8% of the book before saying goodbye to it. It's been so long since a book bored me like this one did--and to think, it's supposedly a kick-ass pirate book.

    The writing was bland, the main character had a weird, confusing personality, and I couldn't tell the difference between any of the side characters.

    *I won't be rating this since I didn't get to my 30% DNF mark.

    Video Review

    You might know that I absolutely love pirates and f/f romance. Both together is even better, so I was incredibly excited when I first heard about this book and I've been anticipating and shouting about it ever since.

    When I first heard of some of the bad reviews, I adjusted my expectations but this ended up being even more of a trash fire than I could've believed possible.

    Now I am not someone who criticises pirate books very harshly. I don't mind if there's not a lot of actual p

    I will admit that I had expectations when I went into The Unbinding of Mary Reade. I was so excited about this book. Sapphic pirates? YES! That is probably the only plus that I can find in this book. It could have been so amazing, especially because it’s by an #ownvoices author.

    If you’re looking for a cute, fluffy or even a happy f/f romance, I wouldn’t look to th

    I haven’t read any pirate stories (outside of picture books!) so this was a new adventure for me! Loved the strong fierce women portrayed in this book. Lots of inner and external conflicts happening here, which made for a great amount of tension throughout the story.

  • Toni

    I want more books like this.

    I want more pirates. I want more ships. I want more ocean.

    But most importantly I want more exploration of gender and sexuality!!

    I will not say this book is without flaw, but I will say I think McNamara went about the harder topics of homophobia and sexism in a way that would be true to the time (the 1700's), AS WELL AS gave our main character so much strength that the message of that prejudice being okay would ever come home with the reader.

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via NetGalley for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own.

    3.5 stars

    This book is perfect for those who are a lot into romance and not that much into action.

    I personally love books with pirates in them, but I also admit that I’m not the biggest fan of action scenes and all of the things you would expect from a book where everyone is a pirate. So, this overall worked for me, but it won’t work for you if you’re going into it expecti

    A copy of this novel was provided by Sky Pony Press for review via Edelweiss.

    Expectations

    1) Queer pirates!!!!

    2) Queer pirates falling in love!!!

    3) Gender discourse regarding the cross-dressing storyline!!

    4) Pirating!

    Reality

    1) I suppose I’ll give The Unbinding of Mary Reade this one. This book was about a queer pirate girl, and also featured another queer pirate girl. I think this aspect was my favourite of the entire book. The fact that it was about queer pirates.

    2) There were queer pirates fall
