A Court Of Throrns And Roses Book Review

image

Goodreads Description:
No mortal would dare venture beyond the borders of their world to Prythian, a forbidden kingdom of faeries. But Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill, and when she spots a deer being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. Killing the predator comes at a price though – her life, or her freedom.

Dragged to Prythian, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, the faerie lands becomes an even more dangerous place.

My Thoughts:
I went into this book with high expectations since I loved Sarah J Maas other series and I was not disappointed. This was a unique take on Beauty and The Beast that kept me wanting more. Even if you don’t like fairytale retelling you will still enjoy this book. I enjoyed the character development of not only the main character but also the side characters, to me everyone grew and learned throughout the novel. I gave this book 4.5 stars out of 5 and would definitely recommend this book. Happy Reading y’all!!!!!

The Girl At Midnight Book Review

Goodreads Description:
Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she’s ever known.

Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she’s fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it’s time to act.

Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, though if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it’s how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.

But some jobs aren’t as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.

My Review:
I loved this book!! I enjoyed the diversity of the characters, the world building, as well as the storyline. Honestly I could not put this book down, I read it all in a 24 hour period. There was romance, action, mystery, and sci fi so there is something for everyone. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. If you are a fan of Daughter of Smoke and Bone you will be a fan of this story! Let me know if any of you have read this and what you thought. I can’t wait to continue with this series!!!! Happy reading y’all!!!!

The Iron Trial Book Review

IMG_2154.PNG

The Iron Trial is a new series by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black. It’s described as a middle grade series but we all know there are some books every age will love. It follows a young boy by the name of Callum Hunt who was raised with the knowledge that magic exists but it is bad and should be avoided at all cost. In this world once children reach a certain age and show magical ability they are sent to the Magisterium where the learn how to protect the world from evil forces.

Of course since Callum believes magic only brings trouble he tries to fail the entrance test. Well that didn’t work so now the adventure begins. I loved the writing style even though I was a little skeptical of how the authors 2 voices would blend. There was never a dull moment and I found myself invested in these characters. This book for me was going to be a 4 or 4.5 out of 5 star rating but then the ending came and wow…… Mind blown and what a way to make me want to grab the next book. I rated this book 5 out of 5 stars. Let me know if any of you have picked up this series and what you thought. Happy Reading Y’all!!!!!!

Book Review: You by Caroline Kepnes

IMG_2153.PNG

First let me start by saying after just reading the summary for this book I couldn’t wait to pick it up. This story follows the narrator Joe who works in a bookstore and has an immediate attraction to one of his customers. Beck who is the customer is a little flirty with Joe and after paying for her purchase with a credit card Joe uses her name to look her up on social media. We then get to see how this obsession/relationship develops.

This was a very realistic book in my opinion. It was odd because at times I felt myself understanding or rationalizing what Joe was doing. The author did a great job of making you like and dislike the characters. If you are looking for a realistic thriller pick this book up. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Let me know if any of you have read this and what you thought about it. Happy Reading Ya’ll!!!!!!
