I mostly read to escape, but love a serious book every once in a while. I never judge a book by its cover...

The Wicked King | Holly Black

The second book is definitely better than the first. It had some good twist and leaves you on a crazy cliff hanger. The third book is not yet out and I really can‘t wait to see what the third book brings very interested to see...

The Cruel Prince | Holly Black
Mehso-so

I enjoyed the story but I wasn‘t smitten with it. I felt like it was missing something, I can‘t really put my finger on it. I did continue to the next book though and have pre ordered the third book. I feel like it is a see for yourself kind of read, I‘m not running to tell everyone about it but I‘m not disliking it to where I stopped reading it.

I loved this novella the best out of all the remnant chronicle (kiss of deception, the heart of betrayal and beauty of darkness) it‘s story of magic and survival. I love books that pull stories from before and this is one of them. It finishes this series off very nicely. I would recommend reading the series first. You will appreciate the novella more but you could read it before the series as well.

Love this story, I‘m very anxious to see where it goes. It definitely kept me intrigued. It is a three book series and I have the other two on pre-order. If I would have known the other two were not out yet I might have waited because this ends on a juicy cliff hanger. I really don‘t want to wait to find out, but I must...

The Vine Witch | Luanne G. Smith

Well I was in a reading hole, it happened to be October and this beauty popped up in my recommendations. It was a great story, loved the characters, there were a few they could have elaborated more on but you pretty much figured it out. It was a little bit of everything protagonist, magic, love, and love of wine, who doesn‘t love wine. ( ha ha)

Tempt | Natalia Jaster

I feel like all the stories In the selfish myths are great. I love how they all intertwine. This one is my favorite, I love this particular story because it has so many emotional sides to it. It‘s a love story that felt like it couldn‘t be then could... but could it really?

Spin the Dawn | Elizabeth Lim
Pickpick

This was a refreshing and enchanting read. I absolutely loved this story. It is a mix of Mulan and Aladdin with a bit of a twist. Although I have done this before and was really looking for a different read in fantasy and knew ahead of time ... this is the beginning of a series and ends on a cliff hanger... the next book is not due out until July 2020. I have pre ordered it though.

War | Laura Thalassa

Well after reading the first book to this series pestilence, I was curious to see how the second book would be... I was not disappointed, I loved it maybe even a little more than the first book. Without giving anything away, It ties in with the first book but a different story with a similar but not ending. Can‘t wait for the third and fourth to come out.

Enjoyed the story line, I wish I would have gotten to know a little bit more about where they came from and the people who ruled them. They just seemed to pop in and out of the story which was a little confusing.

I think this was my favorite out of the three books. With the second book wrapping you up from past to present this book brings you into the present and possible future. It does leave you on a bit of a cliff hanger and I‘m not sure if or when there will be a fourth book to this series. Overall I loved the book and the series, I will be hoping and waiting for the 4th.

This is the second book of Shadows Kiss and it was equally good. I like how this author starts off the series with the present, with the second book leading into what happened previously. She pulled it together smoothly, you don‘t miss a beat and it never leaves you confused but explains everything in the appropriate due time.

Shadow's Kiss | T. M. Hart

Honestly I tried a sample of the book because the cover grabbed me. The story defiantly lives up to the beautiful cover. It has twist and turns, romance, comedy and keeps you wanting more. I feel like it has a slight beauty and the beast feel to it. now I just have to wait anxiously for the 4th book to come out.

Phoenix Unbound | Grace Draven

Grace Draven never disappoints... this story grabbed me from the beginning. It can be a stand alone, however it is to be a series spinning off stories from other charters in this book. doesn‘t have as much of the romance that she is known for but the injustice that happens in the beginning hooks you creating a hope of vengeance I loved it and gave it 5 stars definitely a great read.

The last book in the Throne of Glass series. It was amazing, it almost felt like the beginning of a series but going into it knowing the characters. There was tons of twist, action and more. I‘m sad it has ended but Sarah Maas wrapped it up perfectly.

Night Tide: A Novella | Grace Draven
Mehso-so

I love grace draven‘s writing. Ever since the master of the crows she has hooked me. I was excited to see this next short story of hers come out. Out of all her books,this was the first to leave me a little disappointed. The story line was great However, it was lacking in the love story department(which I love in her writing). It was missing some of the character building as well. This is not typical of her story writing.

Love!! It is a short novella wrapping up a court of thrones and roses series. It also brings you into a new series (spinoff) as well. Super excited about this!

Pestilence | Laura Thalassa

Loved this book but I did it to myself again! It‘s a series and the second installment war has no release date in site. The main character can get a little to over dramatic but overall it was a really great book. I read it a few times over.

1. It‘s raining taco‘s (thanks to my 8yr old daughter) warning don‘t listen you‘ll never get it out of your head. 2. The Queen‘s Rising / so far so good and nightingale/ so far so good as well 3. I‘m not really sure because most of my books are on kindle and I don‘t really pay attention to the pages. 4. @jrbaker 5. Now it would be it‘s raining taco‘s because I thought about the song while writing it in #1 thanks @DebBates101 it‘s your fault lol

I loved this story it was magical and sweet. It is a short story but I wish it would have been turned into a full novel. I read it like three times hoping it would magically turn into more.

I loved this story, tons of adventure great story line. However, I‘m super annoyed by the fact that it‘s a beginning with no end. It is suppose to be a series and ends on a cliff hanger. With no site of date for the next book to come I wouldn‘t read it. Nothing makes me more angry than when an author never finishes their series or at least lets their readers know when the next book is to be released.

I loved this story... I feel that we all have these powers in us. Some relate to animals, some good with words and some relate to nature. It was a fun and light read.

It‘s multiple authors with short stories. They have brought pieces of characters from their own particular series to make up these short stories, which I liked. Because of it, pushed me to read the scribe by Elizabeth hunter

It was a wonderful continuation to heart of fae. I loved it just as much. It was a great twist to the ending that I didn‘t see coming. I have read heart of fae and veins of magic twice because I loved it so much. Great twist on a magical fae version of beauty and the beast.

I‘m about to start reading this again. It is about Chinese gods and a love story. It left me wanting more. The ending was wrapped up a little to quickly I think but the story I thought was very interesting. I felt like it‘s different from most reads as well. I would love tang qi to write more of these types of books. She‘s a lovely writer.

I loved this book it has a little bit of everything. I love the wild and unruly spirit of the main character. The story is really interesting and keeps you hooked through out the book. The second book the girl in the tower is equally just as interesting. I‘m just waiting for the third one to come out...there‘s no info. I would still read them anyway.

Genstl3 Yes! Ty @RaimeyGallant!! I‘m enjoying it but have to admit it‘s a little bit hard to navigate and understand a little. I guess anything is when you first start. I just wish you could post all the books you‘ve read under you‘re profile and your ratings without having to post them. Then people can just look at your list when they are following you. 2y
RaimeyGallant You can. Just search for each of the books using the magnifying glass and add them using the book icon. 2y

This book has a little bit of a slow start but the main character seems to keep me intrigued. I continued through and loved it. I even bought the second book and loved it just as much. It‘s a twist on beauty and the beast but with the magic of the fae. This is a definitely don‘t judge by the cover.

Very addictive, loved the story and the twists and turns. Warning though.. Every one of these books in this series ends in a cliff hanger leaving you wanting to dive into the next book. This series is not finished yet, so if you‘re not good at waiting for the next book to come out you will have to hold out a bit longer.

Kaye Welcome 💐 2y
