Reading progress update: I’ve read 34%.


Heir of Fire - Sarah J. Maas

As I am reading the third book in the series, I am still liking the book, even though the second book is my favorite so far. I still am not liking Chaol that much, which is sad because I loved him in the first book. Dorian is still my favorite and I hate that so many people are lying to him. I don’t care that there saying it’s because there trying to protect him, when by lying to him it could make it worse for him.

Out of the new characters my favorites would have to be Sorscha, and Aedion. Rowan, I am not sure about yet, and Manon, so far is boring to me. So boring so far that I just skim through her parts of the story.

I really hope the second half of the book will be not as boring, even though there are some parts that are really good, especially with what Dorian just overhead about Celaena. Hopefully in the next couple of days I will be done with this book and hopefully be able to get read book 4, before taking a break for a little bit, and read some netgalley books, which I am so really freaking behind on. Back with you guys later.

Reading progress update: I’ve read 100%.


Review:

Fire War 11: Treason - Michael T. Murray

This one was better but a quicker read. I really felt bad for Mr. Jackson and what he went through in this book. The President was even worse in this book then the first one. A lot of things happened in this book for the length of this one compared to the first one.

I really enjoyed the two children of Mr. Jackson, and what happened at the end of the last book, to one of them was just sad. But also what made Mr. Jackson finally open up his eyes on exactly who the President is. As well as what the President is trying to do to are country. So the ending was full of action and gives us the readers, some answers that we might have had. I would definitely recommend this series to my family and friends.

Pretty Creepy towards the end of the book!!!!!


Review:

Crown of Midnight - Sarah J. Maas

I really loved this one a lot more than the first in the series, even though I did like the first one. I am still trying to decide what character is my favorite, if I choose right now that individual would have to be Dorian. I felt really bad for him, in regards for his feelings for Celaena. And also because Celaena and Chaol, leaving him out of a lot of important information. But the biggest reason is what he finds out about himself, and what would happen if his father the king finds out about it.

Chaol I am kind of not sure about, I really loved him in the first book, but the second half of this book his really started to bother me. 

Celaena I am not sure about either, her and Chaol’s relationship is just all over the place in this book. One minute she loves him and the next minute she can’t stands him and wants him died. I understand why she feels this way at first, but then she finds out something and she still acts the same way. I did know her secret before it was revealed and I still loved it because how it was revealed and by whom.

And the King I just can’t stand, and what we find out in regards to what his trying to do, is so creepy and cray, cray!!!!!!!

I am now starting The Heir of Fire, and I really can’t wait to find out, what’s going to happen next. I really want to know what Dorian is going to do, and also what his father the king will do if he finds out about it.

My Review

I thought the book was pretty good. I have never read the first series with Michael and Claudia, so I will definitely have to later down the road. I thought the main character of Lucia was an okay heroine, but it took awhile for me to start to warm up to her. I really loved her brother Zach and there guardian Davin a lot. Davin was so freaking funny and kept me laughing, but he also had a very serious side as well. 

Lucia is only 17 years old I had to keep reminding myself that, because of some of the stupid stuff she does in the book. Plus she hasn’t liked in the human world, or liked a boy, until she meets Eli, so she’s also dealing with her hormones. 

Now Eli I am still not sure about, I really don’t know if I like him or not. Or how I feel about him and Lucia as a couple. Sometimes his such a jerk to Lucia, and he seems like a know it all. 

I thought the book was very interesting especially the ending, which ends in a very big cliffhanger. So I am looking forward to the rest of the series to see however is going to turn out for everyone. Oh before I forget, which I would hate ,is if I don’t talk about Lucia’s best guy friend and another one of my favorite characters, which is Jack. I really love that he plays a big part in things that are going on, in regards to the plot. I just freaking love this guy, his just so awesome to me. I love that he is there for Lucia, and even though he likes Lucia as more than a friend, he knows that Eli is the one Lucia wants to be with. And he still wants to be in her life, if only in a best friend. 

Thanks to all parties involved that picked me to take part in the book tour for this book, after I requested for it.

Reading progress update: I’ve read 28%.


The Hundredth Queen (The Hundredth Queen Series Book 1) - Emily R. King

So far I am not sure how I feel about the book. I just got to the palace or whatever you want to call it, of Rajah Tarek. Now that I am at this point, things will really start to really take off. I really not attracted to any of the characters, “Kalinda: is Rajah Tarek 100th wife, but she’s already falling for someone else. Which brings me to this individual, whose name is Deven. He knows that things can get deadly if he gets involved with Kalinda but he still does things that could get them both killed. I can understand Kalinda somewhat, since she was never around men before. But Deven he just has no excuse at all.

I am going to give the book 3 to 4 more chapters, and if things don’t improve, I will pick out something else to read. And then maybe get back into the book, in another month or two.

I do have book 2, as well as 3, which I received both by the way of Netgalley. So I am bound and determined to get through all three books, luckily 3 doesn’t come out, I believe until sometime in February.

Cute little book.


Review:

The Bone Thief - Alyson Noel

I really want to thank the author, publisher, and netgalley, for granting my request to read and review this book for my reading pleasure.

I thought the book was a cute little read, I only gave it three stars, just because it took me until almost the half way point to really get into it. I don’t think it was the book or author’s fault. I think it’s really just because I am definitely not the attended target, or I should say age group for this book. 

I did like the main character of Grimsly, what a name unique name for the main hero of the story. I love that in a world of magic, that he was so normal, or maybe he really wasn’t as normal as he thinks, or other people thought. The book started really picking up when Grimsly had to go to a world that had no magic. So he could find out why his world was losing their magic abilities. It was interesting in regards to why there world was losing their magic, and to see if Grimsly could save their world of magic.

I liked Grimsly’s friends that had magic abilities which were, Ming, Ollie, and Penelope. And another friend Frankie whom he meets in the normal world. I thought she was a very interesting individual, and I loved that she had some spunk in her. But also knows when she should back down.

The bad guy and why he wanted  to hurt individuals with Magical abilities was interesting, and how he was able to go about doing this was very gross.

I thought the book ended just the way it should have for it’s attendee age group, but for me personally, I would have liked more action. And a better wrap up for the ending of the book, but that’s my own personal preference.

I personally wouldn’t buy the book for myself but maybe for my nieces and nephew’s that are in the targeted audience.
