Reading progress update: I’ve read 26%.


Berserker - Emmy Laybourne

I hope this book starts to get better soon, so far its been pretty boring besides in a couple of spots. Not sure if I even have a favorite yet. Owen I think so far is the closest, then Stieg would be a very close second. 

I am going to try and read a little bit more, I at least want to get to where Hanne and Owen first meet, I read some reviews and they said that’s when the book starts to get much better.

Ok Book but not my favorite.


Review:

Red Sister - Mark  Lawrence

I liked the book more at the beginning, the middle was boring to me, and then it got more exciting at the end. The middle to me was so boring that I skipped some to see if it got more exciting at the end. I feel really sad because I really wanted to love the book more than I did, because I read so many great reviews of the book.

I would have to say that I really loved the main character of Nona a lot and I felt so bad about all she went through at such a young age. I think she had a lot of courage for such a young girl. There are a lot of interesting characters such as, Arabella, Jula, Clera, Hessa, Sister Apple, Sister Kettle, and Mistress Blade, etc. 

I did like the book enough that I would give the next book in the series a chance, and hopefully I will enjoy that one more. I liked the plot of the book and I was pretty surprised by something’s that happened and something’s weren’t surprising at all, but rather things that you would excepted to happen. 

So while this book wasn’t my favorite book ever, I still enjoyed it enough to continue on, like I mentioned above.

Pretty interesting but Strange Story.


Review:

Daughter of the Burning City - Amanda Foody

I really did enjoy this book even though it was very strange that illusions can be murdered, and even though they do explain how, I still am not sure if I understand it completely.

My favorite character was Luca, something that we found out about him was part of the reason I gave the book only 4 and not 5 stars. It wasn’t anything that he did wrong, and that’s all I will say on that or this review will go into the spoiler territory. Luca is definitely a new book boyfriend for me.

I liked Sorina but certain things she did in the book I either didn’t understand why she did them or she did things to make me mad. I loved that there were illustrations of the  difference illusions with a description of each of them. That last illusion that was murdered was the saddest for me, probably because that one was on the pages longer. So I got to know that one a lot more. The murderer was a little bit of a surprise, but looking back it really shouldn’t have been.

I still really loved the book and I would definitely recommend this book to people to read. Oh my favorite illusions would have to be Tree and Crown.

Reading progress update: I’ve read 16%.


Daughter of the Burning City - Amanda Foody

This book caught my attention due to the intriguing topic. I am really hoping I will enjoy it, but so far I am not really sure how I am feeling about the book. I don’t hate it but I am confused on how the illusions can be killed. Hopefully as I get further along it will be explained ,so I can understand it.

I do like Sorina she is most definitely a different heroine, then the ones I am use to reading about in books. Luca whom I believe might be Sorina’s love interest, has been only on the scene for a few pages. But from those few pages he has made an impression on me. He seems like his going to become one of my book boyfriends, at least so far I feel that’s going to be the case.

More to come later.

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.

My Review
The book started out really slow to me, but once it got going it never stopped. I really think my favorite parts would have to be  the Vivienne and Alex’s part of the story. I just think that’s because I know them more because of the series before this series. I do like Harrison and John parts as well, just not as much. I really love Alex, I don’t want to say what his name was in the other series because I don’t want to give it away to individuals that haven’t read the other series yet, or started this one yet. 
I really love supernatural stuff in my books, so I didn’t mind they added it into this series, like some individuals, did have with it.
I can’t wait to see what happens next with all parties involved. I did read at the end that the next book won’t be for this series but back in the other world again. Kat Ross said it will be out sometime in the fall and it will be called Nocturne. So I am super excited, since the Fourth Element series is one of my favorite series, that I have read in a very long time.
I am so glad that when I requested to take part in this book tour that I was chosen to take part in it. Thanks so much Xpresso tours for this awesome opportunity.

The Thirteenth Gate () (Volume 2) - Kat Ross

Pretty interesting so far. I am so happy that some of the characters from her series the Fourth Element are in this book. I am so happy that we get to find out what has happened to them since that series ended. It was one of my favorite series ever. So I am hoping I can have at least like if not love this new series.

I actually haven’t had a chance to read the first book in this series, so I am a little lost, so I would say to read the first book before this one. I forget that I didn’t finish the first one, and I also forgot that I was supposed to do a book tour for this book that I am reading now. I also just got my internet turned back on so, I just haven’t been able to read this book before now, since I thought I downloaded this one but didn’t, so I had to wait to also downloaded this once we got the internet turned back on.

So later I will go back and read the first book to find out what all that I missed.

The Dragons of Nova (Loom Saga #2) by Elise Kova Publication Date: July 11, 2017 Publisher: Keymaster Press
Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed everything — and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh. While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of change, as her unique blend of skills — and quick-shooting accuracy — makes her a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons. Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.
 
My Review
I really enjoyed this book a lot too, even though it took a little bit longer to get into, compared to the first book. But even though I still liked this book a little bit more than the first one. I think that’s because of the last half of the book, so much happens. There are some deaths especially one very surprising one, at the end. Cvareh is still my absolute favorite of all the characters, I really love how he feels towards Ari, and I feel that after this book, I would love for them two to get together in the end. Flor really surprised me towards the very end of the book, and I am not sure about how I feel about what she did. She is sure changing compared to what she was like, in the beginning of the first book. Something’s that happened in this book is sure going to make the last book in the series very interesting. And I can’t wait until December to find out what that is going to be. I am so happy I was chosen to take part in the book tour for this awesome and action packed book.
