JULY '20 WRAP-UP


Time for another wrap up!

I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during this global pandemic. Please wear your masks and practice social distancing. Also, if you have a minute, please take a look at this link for resources on how you can help the BLM movement and other issues around the world: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/

Okay, my public service announcements are over.

This was a good reading month as I participated in the Reading Rush and other challenges. 

Time to talk about the books I read this month.


PHYSICAL BOOKS

 

The first book I read was Defy by Sara B. Larson. This was a reread for me and I really enjoyed it. Defy is about Alexa Hollen who has been masquerading as a boy in order to be a member of the Prince's guard. She's one of the strongest fighters but when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace, she can't defeat him and is abducted along with her fellow guard and best friend Rylan and Prince Damian. The three are taken into the jungle and enemy territory. I really liked the Mulan vibes from this book however, I really could have done without the love triangle. I rated this one 4 Crowns. 

The second book I read was Ignite by Sara B. Larson which is the sequel to Defy. I think I liked this one more then the first book though they were pretty close. I can't say much about this one without spoiling the first book, but I loved seeing the characters develop especially Alexa. I rated this one 4 Crowns. 

The third book I read was Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi. I love Tahereh Mafi's books and I bought this one shortly after it came out but I never read it. This is about Alice who lives in the magical land of Ferenwood, where everything is colorful. However, Alice is colorless which means she also has no magic and it makes her an outcast. She feels like she'll never fit in until she gets the opportunity to join a boy named Oliver on a journey to the land of Furthermore, the land where her father disappeared many years ago. This was a hard book to get into because the writing is so different but I ended up really liking it. The world is so interesting and entertaining. My main complaint is that the ending was really rushed. I rated it 4 Crowns. 




The fourth book I read was Deathless Divide by Justina Ireland. This is the sequel to Dread Nation which was one of my favorite books that I read last year. I loved how much more we got to learn about the characters and how the relationships really developed in this book. I rated it 4 Crowns. 

The fifth book I read was Lifelike by Jay Kristoff. I bought this back in 2018 when it was released but I didn't read it until this month. This book is described as X-Men meets Romeo and Juliet meets Mad Max. Lifelike is about a girl named Eve who lives in a post-apocalyptic USA and she builds robot gladiators so she can earn money to help her sick Grandpa, who is her last remaining family member. However, everything goes wrong when one of her gladiators is destroyed and she stops the other robot with the power of her mind. Her newfound ability is revealed to all due to the fight being public and now a puritanical organization is after her. On her way home with her AI robot Cricket and best friend Lemon Fresh, they discover an android boy who recognizes her. Together they all go on the run from the people after her and she learns more about her past. I loved the plot of this and I also loved how fleshed out and complex all the characters were. I can't wait to read the next one and find out what happens because this one had like 6 plot twists. I rated it 5 Crowns. 

The sixth book I read was Frostbite by Richelle Mead. This is the second book in The Vampire Academy series and I really enjoyed it. This series is a new guilty pleasure of mine as it is so different to what I originally thought. I really liked learning more about the characters and their lives. I rated it 4 Crowns. 





The seventh book I read was Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead. This is the third book in The Vampire Academy series so I can't say much without spoiling but I think this was my favorite of the series so far. I rated it 4 Crowns. 

The eighth book I read was Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf. This book is one of my new favorites. I've had people recommend it to me for awhile now and I was very wary about picking it up but I really enjoyed it. Bring Me Their Hearts is about Zera who is a Heartless aka the immortal, unageing soldier of a witch. She is bound to a witch named Nightsinger ever since she saved her from the bandits who murdered her family however, she wants freedom but with her heart under Nightsinger's control, she can't go anywhere. But, when Nightsinger asks Zera for a Prince's heart in exchange for Zera's freedom, Zera accepts. Crown prince Lucien hates the royal court and doesn't care for any of the girls sent to court in hopes of impressing him, until Lady Zera who challenges him. I really enjoyed this book and I loved that the relationship was enemies to lovers and super slowburn. I rated it 5 Crowns. 

The ninth book I read was City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. This was a reread for me but since I didn't remember most of the book, it was like I was reading it for the first time. This is the first book in The Mortal Instruments Series and it's about a girl named Clary who figures out she is a Shadowhunter (a warrior dedicated to ridding the world of demons) when her mother is kidnapped. It's a pretty fast paced book and I think I read it all in one day. I really enjoyed it even though I don't like the idea of Clary being only fifteen years old! I rated it 5 Crowns. 




The tenth book I read Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson.  I bought this as soon as it was released back in 2019 but I waited until this July to read it. This is about Elisabeth who is an orphan raised in the Great library of Summershall where she learned the arts of tending to books and guarding them against the world as well as guarding the world against them. One night, Elisabeth wakes up to find the library's Director slain and a Malefic free to loosen its wrath on her city. She takes the monster out but before she can even process everything she is branded as a murderer and a traitor. And when the Great libraries start falling under attack, Elisabeth has to seek help from Nathaniel Thorn, a sorcerer whose family is rumored to use necromancy. I loved this book. The characters were all so enjoyable and fully fleshed out. I rated it 5 Crowns. 

The eleventh book I read was Tears of Frost by Bree Barton. This was probably my biggest disappointment of the month. I didn't really enjoy the first book but I was invested in the story so I read the sequel. However, the characters all fell flat and the development that they did have wasn't done well. I also didn't really like how the plot progressed. I rated it 2.5 Crowns. 


AUDIOBOOKS READ

 

The first and only audiobook I listened to this month was Caraval by Stephanie Garber. Caraval is about Scarlett Dragna who lives on a tiny island along with her sister, Tella, and a powerful/cruel father. Scarlett's father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval which is a magical performance where the audience can participate in the show. But this year, Scarlett's invitation that she's dreamt of for years arrives and with the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show but as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval's mastermind, Legend. It turns out that this game revolves around Tella and whoever finds her first is the winner. Scarlett has been told that Caraval is just a very elaborate performance however it seems like it is a lot more than that. This was my third time listening to this audiobook and I love it more with each listen. I rated it 5 Stars. 


ARC'S READ


The first and only ARC I read was The Princess Will Save You by Sarah Henning. This is a retelling of The Princess Bride but with the Princess saving her farm boy. It's about Princess Amarande who when her father dies, is given the choice to either marry a stranger or lose control of her family's crown/kingdom. But Amarande was raised to be a warrior and she refuses to marry a stranger. In an attempt to force her choice, a neighboring kingdom kidnaps her true love, stable boy Luca and she can't trust anyone so she goes after him herself. I thought this was a super cute book and I loved how it was a sort of gender-swapped retelling. I rated it 4 Crowns.

JUNE '20 WRAP-UP


Time for another wrap up!

I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during this global pandemic. Please wear your masks and practice social distancing. Also, if you have a minute, please take a look at this link for resources on how you can help the BLM movement and other issues around the world: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/

Okay, my public service announcements are over.

I read a total of nine books in June which is pretty impressive considering I was also doing a summer college class and working.

Time to talk about the books I read this month.


PHYSICAL BOOKS


The first book I read was The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I have owned this book for a long time and everyone has been telling me to pick it up and I am so glad that I did because it is a new favorite.  This is about Blue Sargent who meets four strange boys who she'd never expected she'd actually like or trust. She's caught in the middle of one of the boy's treasure hunt and a mystery that cloaks their town. I loved this book a lot. It is slow paced but that gives the characters more time to be developed. I ended up rating this one 5 Crowns. 

The second book I read was Night Speed by Chris Howard. I was originally drawn to this book because of the cover and the fact that it's about a drug that teenagers can take to make them super fast which sounded really cool. This is about Alana who has been trained to use the drug known as tetra in order to take down criminals known as breaknecks who abuse its power. She goes undercover, infiltrating an elite gang of breaknecks in order to stop the supply of their drug. However, when she gets trapped on the wrong side of the law, she learns the breaknecks are not quite what they seem. I loved the plot of this book however, I thought that most of the characters fell flat for me and didn't feel as developed as they could have been. I ended up rating this one 3 Crowns. 

The third book I read was The Midnight Dance by Nikki Katz. This was my least favorite book of the month as it was super disappointing. This is about Penny who is a lead dancer at a finishing school in an Italian estate. The estate is tucked deep in the woods and is overseen by the mysterious and young Master. Penny is sure that this is the only life she has ever known however when flashes of memories from a life very different to this one appear, she begins to question the school and the motivations of the Master. One of the reasons that I was so disappointed with this one is that the characters were all very one dimensional and ended up being very annoying. The plot was also slow paced until everything was shoved in, in the last fourth which I didn't like. Also, the villain was barely featured and wasn't as sinister or motivated as I was led to believe he was by the synopsis. I did love the setting which was spooky and atmospheric. I ended up rating this 2 or 2.5 Crowns. 



The fourth book I read was A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas. This is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. It's about Aurora who gets woken up by the kiss of a prince. Her broken kingdom has been waiting for her return and all the books she's read say that she should now be twirling off into her happily ever after. However, that is not what Aurora experiences. Her family is dead. Her supposed true love is a nice stranger and her whole life has been planned out by her political foes. Aurora struggles to come to terms with her new world and life and must make a decision on how to best save her kingdom. Marry the prince who she doesn't love or run. I didn't end up enjoying this one as much as I thought though I loved Aurora and I thought the whole premise was so interesting. I plan on finishing the duology because I'm curious to see what happens next. I rated this one 3.5 Crowns. 

The fifth book I read was The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid. This is said to be a mix of The Hunger Games and Red Queen which I can totally see but I also think it has major Star Wars vibes. This is about Nemesis who is a Diabolic aka a humanoid teenager created to protect a galactic senator's daughter, Sidonia. The two have grown up side by side and Nemesis has always known that she is expected to give her life for Sidonia. When the Emperor learns Sidonia's father is participating in a rebellion he summons Sidonia to the Galactic court to serve as a hostage. Now, Nemesis must become Sidonia in order to protect her. Nemesis travels to the court which is a world of corrupt politicians and their children and she must keep her true identity and abilities a secret. However, as the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion is on the rise, she must accept her humanity and save herself and the empire. 

The sixth book I read was Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. This book has become a new favorite of mine and I can't believe that I waited so long to read it. Cruel Beauty is a Beauty and the Beast Retelling about Nyx who has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom since birth because of a foolish bargain struck by her father. But, she's also been in training to kill him. On her seventeenth birthday, she abandons everything she knows to marry the powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan is to seduce him, destroy his castle and break the curse he put on her people. But he isn't at all what she expected and as she starts to uncover his secrets, she finds herself running out of time and must decide which is more important, saving the kingdom and people or the man she is beginning to love. I love enemies to lovers Young Adult books and this one was so well done! I loved the characters, the settings and the plot. I rated this one 5 Crowns. 



The seventh book I read was Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett.  I love the contemporary books by Jenn Bennett so I was excited to read this one. Starry Eyes is about Zorie and Lennon who used to be best friends until they became enemies at last year's homecoming dance. The two now have made it their mission to avoid each other. That is until they are both invited on a camping trip with a group. However, the group camping trip goes south and the two find themselves stranded in the wilderness alone. I really liked Zorie and Lennon and I thought their relationship was super cute. I also love how interesting the plot is because I've never read anything like it before. 

The eighth book I read was Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake. I originally bought this a couple of years ago because of the gorgeous cover and the fact that it was supposed to be all about libraries. This is about Gia who gets sucked into a book at the Boston Athenaeum when she unwittingly speaks the key. She and her friends are transported into a Paris library where she meets Arik and his Sentinels, magical knights charged with protecting humans from creatures traveling across the gateway books, and they save Gia from a demonic hound. Jumping into beautiful libraries seems like a dream come true for Gia however, she finds out that her past is not what she once thought it was and she has to help defeat an exiled wizard seeking revenge. I really loved the whole concept but I didn't like most of the characters and the romance was super insta love. However, I am excited to see where this series is going. I rated this one 3 Crowns. 

The ninth book I read was Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch. I have heard so many good things about this book and I am excited that I finally picked it up. This is about a world where the kingdoms are based on the seasons and sixteen years ago, the Winter Kingdom was conquered and its citizens were enslaved. Now, the Winterians' only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape and have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter's magic and their kingdom. The main character, Meira was orphaned as an infant during Winter's defeat and has been training to be a warrior to help serve future king, Mather. So, when scouts discover the location of the locket that can restore Winter's magic, Meira decides to go after it herself but the mission doesn't go as planned and she finds out that her destiny has never been her choice. I really liked Meira and I loved the plot which was fast-paced and exciting. I ended up rating this one 4 Crowns.

A VERY LATE MAY '20 WRAP


Time for another wrap up!

I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during this global pandemic. Please wear your masks and practice social distancing. Also, if you have a minute, please take a look at this link for resources on how you can help the BLM movement and other issues around the world: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/

Okay, my public service announcements are over.

I've been working on a summer college class and have been back at work so that is why this is so late. I am going to attempt to get back into blogging more soon.

Time to talk about the books I read this month.


PHYSICAL BOOKS


The first book I read was Belle Revolte by Linsey Miller. Belle Revolte is about two very different women who swap lives in order to live out their dreams. One of the women is Emilie des Marais, a noble lady who wants to serve her country as a physician however, society dictates that a noble woman can't perform that kind of gruesome work. The other woman is Annette Boucher who is poor and overworked by her family. She also wants to be trained in magic so when Emilie offers Annette the chance to go learn magic and escape her family, she takes it. However, when their nation instigates a terrible war, the two come together to help the rebellion unearth the truth before it's too late. This was one of my most anticipated books of the year however, it didn't meet all of my expectations. I loved the diverse cast of characters and the whole premise is so interesting as well as the magic system. However, I thought the plot dragged until the last fourth and I couldn't keep up with all the characters and their separate plot-lines which seemed to just be thrown at us without too much explanation. I ended up rating this 3.5 Crowns. 

The second book I read Havenfall by Sara Holland. This one is definitely going to make it onto my favorite books of 2020 list. Havenfall follows Maddie who wants to inherit her uncle's inn (where four magical worlds connect) however one of the worlds has been blocked off because it's full of monsters who murder people. The other three however, are open and the people from those worlds all come to the inn to make alliances and trade goods. The main character dreams of inheriting the job of running the inn which is why this summer she has come to talk to her uncle about it. However, everything goes wrong and this summer the door of Solaria (the world full of monsters) opens and everyone goes into lockdown because monsters are roaming and everyone wonders who's to blame for the opening of the door. This is such a good book and is a new favorite of mine. The worlds are well thought out, the characters are strongly developed and the plot is fast-paced and intriguing. I rated this one 5 Crowns. 

The third book I read was Night Spinner by Addie Thorley. This is a Hunchback of Notre Dame retelling Enebish who used to be one of the best warriors in the Sky King's army as well as a Night Spinner (someone who has the power to bend night). However, one day she lost control and slaughtered a merchant caravan and her best-friend and surrogate sister, Ghoa, had to maim her in order to get her under control. Now she's known as Enebish the Destroyer and has been branded a traitor. She lives in hiding in a monastery, a moonstone placed into her chest in order to sever her connection with her magic and she leads a simple life, taking care of the King's eagles. But, one day Ghoa arrives to visit and gives her a job to take the eagles to a celebration of the King's along with her best friend, Serik, who is also a monk at the monastery. She's supposed to deliver the eagles and then immediately return to the monastery however, she finds herself in trouble and then a group of rebels interfere and Enebish gets caught up in the rebels plan to overthrow the King. This is such a fast-paced book with political intrigue, morally grey characters and a warrior girl who is tired of living in the shadows. I rated this one 4 Crowns. 




The fourth book I read was Star Wars Queen's Shadow by E.K. Johnston. This is about Padme Amidala's rise to Senator of Naboo and is set after The Phantom Menace but before Attack of the Clones. I loved seeing more of Padme and her handmaidens as well as getting to learn a lot more about the politics of Naboo and the Galaxy. Queen's Shadow is also full of girl power and female friendships which we don't get to see in the movies. I rated this one 4 Crowns. 

The fifth book I read was The Winter Duke by Claire Eliza Bartlett. This has a lot of elements from Sleeping Beauty and Anastasia which I loved. It's about Ekata who is getting ready to move away from her murderous family however, one night her parents and twelve siblings all fall under a sleeping curse. Ekata inherits the title of duke, her brother's warrior bride, and a ton of challengers from her own ministry and beyond. Ekata has never wanted the crown or paid attention to politics so navigating her new title is a challenge. But, if she and her kingdom are to survive she has to seize her family's power and learn how to wield it. This book is very plot driven, has two queer main characters and has a ton of politics. I loved this one and ended up rating it 4 Crowns. 

The sixth book I read was Dangerous by Shannon Hale. I have owned this book for over three years and have never picked it up until now. This is about Maisie Danger Brown who's always wanted to be an astronaut so when she wins a contest to go to a space camp she is ecstatic. However, she gets a lot more than she bargained for and is involved in a frightening plot that goes after her and her newfound friends and is already changing life on Earth as we know it. I thought I would end up enjoying this one a lot more than I did. I didn't enjoy the romance too much which seemed to take up way too much of the plot. I also didn't really like the side characters who weren't that fleshed out. I did however, love the plot and premise which was super exciting and fast-paced and had me questioning everything. I also loved the disability representation (Maisie was born without one of her hands) and she's also half-Latina. I ended up rating it 3 Crowns.

ARC'S READ

 

The first ARC I read was Dark Skies by Danielle L. Jensen. This is the second book in the Dark Shores series and I received a complimentary eARC for the blog tour. Dark Skies is about Lydia who was first introduced in book one as Teriana's best friend and we follow her as she escapes from an arranged marriage and meets our other main character, Killian, a new bodyguard to a princess. I did a full review of this one so I won't say too much about it but I really enjoyed it and loved learning more about the world and the new characters. I ended up rating this 4.5 Crowns. 

The second ARC I read was Kitra by Gideon Marcus. This was a very short eARC that's set in the distant future about a group of friends fixing an old ship and having an adventure in space. This mainly focuses on the relationships between the friends and it is super wholesome and a fun quick read. I rated this one 3 Crowns. 


The third ARC I read was Star Wars Queen's Peril by E.K. Johnston. Padme Amidala is one of my all time favorite Star Wars characters and I never felt like she got enough backstory or attention in the prequels so I was super excited to read this one. Part of this is set before the first prequel movie, The Phantom Menace, and part of it runs parallel to that movie. I loved how much girl power was in this book and how much more we learned about Padme's past as the Queen of Naboo. I rated this one 4 Crowns. 

The fourth ARC I read was The Redpoint Crux by Morgan Shamy. This is a Phantom of the Opera retelling and I was so excited for it, because I've never read a Phantom retelling before. This is about Red who is the Christine Daae character. After she is kicked off the USA Climbing Team, she is determined to find her focus and makes a risky decision that almost gets her killed. After an accident, she is saved by her "Angel of Music".  She returns home and finds out that her coach and boyfriend is quitting and so she is forced to head back to Nova Scotia. When she arrives, unwanted memories begin to surface of a botched ballet career, the horrific death of her father and the mental break of her brother. The theater and her past are too much for her even though it also reunited her with her brother. She is determined to get enough money to head back to the States until the man who killed her father begins another killing spree and she gets the aid of her mysterious masked savior. This is a wonderfully mysterious and atmospheric retelling and I ended up rating it 3.5 Crowns.
