I really enjoyed this book! Graceling is the first book in the Graceling Realm series by Kristin Cashore. Our main character is Katsa. She has been gifted with the Grace of killing. In this world people who are gifted with Graces are looked down upon, at least where Katsa grew up. Graces are basical...

I was kind of hoping for more with this. The idea of graces was an intriguing one, and thus the world had the potential to be interesting, but that potential was not really fulfilled. The politics of the situation seemed overly simplistic, although they were a central point of the plot, and the p...

I absolutely loved this book! From the first chapter on, I was addicted. The only downside I find, is that I absolutely disliked the ending. I personally think the author could have made such an amazing ending to the book, but ended up with an average one that, as I mentioned before, did not like at...

True confession: I've only read a middling amount of fantasy and YA (when I grew weary of the 'same old same old' historical romances about two years ago, I read only YA.) But. . . I've never read The Hunger Games despite my sister's best efforts at forcing/cajoling/whining/bribing to get me to, nor...

Finally. I am so glad to be done with this book. My biggest complaint is one I mentioned in a status update. Cahore wants to tell you how women are disadvantaged in a patriarchal society, but she doesn't want to explore the consequences. Bah. Tamora Pierce did the girl warrior a hundred times better...

I really enjoyed it. A LOT happened, which is a nice change from a book series that takes its time because the author knows there's going to be 3 more books following the same person and they need to leave some room for growth. It's not the case with this book- it's a full-on sprint the entire way t...

Wow, just wow. How sweet is this story?I am blown away by the sheer number of things that have happened in this novel. It was very well written and fast paced, i didn't expect that. I am usually particular about YA/NA novels. If they are too juvenile, i just can't force myself to go trough them. Thi...

Un testo che nella prima metà del libro mi aveva completamente conquistata e poi successivamente ... il nulla. Apatia totale, non vedevo l'ora di finirlo per Finirlo, non per sapere come sarebbe finito, come sarebbero finiti i due innamorati etc, etc etc,. ed ho dovuto saltare un bel po' di pagine p...

Every now and then I venture into the so called ‘young adult’ literature realm and each time I’m surprised by how we completely redefined what constitutes the acceptable reading material for this age group. And I don’t mean it in a bad way. Not at all. In fact, I’m excited over the sheer volume of s...

As far as family-friendly girl fantasy goes, this is ok. I'd recommend it to younglings new to the fantasy genre, readers of light action/adventure/fantasy, and fans of Tamora Pierce. In fact, this is the audiobook that you take with you on a family roadtrip wherein you are stuck in the car for five...
