A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas (review)

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas (review)

I loved Feyre and Tamlin together in the last book. I was leery of a love triangle, which was hinted at in book 1. And there is one, but also not quite. I didn’t like Tamlin’s behavior at all, and while it was believable in some ways, it just bugged me. Feyre had changed in more than just her mortality and species. But Tamlin was basically treating her like a house pet. But the one that irked me the most was Lucien. I loved him, and loved his interactions with Feyre in the last book. But in this one? I… Read more »

Princess of Glass (The Princesses of Westfalin Trilogy #2) by Jessica Day George (review)

Princess of Glass (The Princesses of Westfalin Trilogy #2) by Jessica Day George (review)

I really enjoyed getting to know Poppy in this book. We didn’t get to learn a lot about any of her other sisters, since Poppy was sent to another kingdom by herself. But the characters we did get to meet I quite enjoyed. All except Eleanor. She was entirely disagreeable and I kept hoping she would fail and not end up with any boy at the end of the book. Once we found out why she was such a horrible person, it made a lot more sense for her to act that way. But by that point in the book,… Read more »

Princess of the Midnight Ball (The Princesses of Westfalin Trilogy #1) by Jessica Day George (review)

I really liked this fairytale retelling. I haven’t seen that many retellings of the 12 Dancing Princesses. And I liked that the story was from Galen’s point of view as well as Princess Rose’s. I would have liked the pronunciation guide in the front of the book instead of in the back, past the knitting patterns and such. I had ideas in my head about how some of the names and things were pronounced, and then once the book was finished I found out I was wrong on a few of them. I’m sure I’ll continue to be wrong when… Read more »

Rapunzel’s Revenge (Rapunzel’s Revenge #1) by Dean & Shannon Hale (review)

Rapunzel’s Revenge (Rapunzel’s Revenge #1) by Dean & Shannon Hale (review)

I had no idea this was some kind of comic strip/graphic novel mix when I requested the book from the library. And now after reading it, I can’t imagine the story having been told any other way! I loved getting to see Rapunzel use her hair as weapons, as well as see the characters and obstacles she had to overcome. Reading it on my Kindle, I have no idea if the pages were colored, but it worked really well in black/white/grey. This book was really fun to read, had a number of funny moments, and I loved the Old West… Read more »

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas (review)

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas (review)

I swear this is one of those series where every book just feels so much better than the last one. And the last ones weren’t bad books! I totally wanted to hit Chaol over the head with a heavy and hard object again for a good bit of this book. But, Manon! And Lysandra! And of course Rowan, Aedion and Aelin herself. When I saw the size of this book I was both happy and a bit scared. Would it live up to the other books? Was it too long? What all could you fit into 650 pages?! And then… Read more »

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas (review)

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas (review)

I love the previous books in this series. But I think this one has become the new favorite. We’ve seen Celaena fresh from the slave mines. We’ve seen her fighting to become the King’s Champion. Fighting not to lose herself completely, and to save her friends. But we haven’t seen her as broken and unmasked as we do in this book. Here, she does a complete 360. From being so broken down and despairing all she wants is to die, to truly living up to the name of the book. Memories that have been alluded to in previous books, but… Read more »
