Round-Up for March and April 2018

 

I cannot believe we are actually going into May already, the time is just flying by. 

Sadly I was super busy, sick  or had some dental work done and really didn't get a lot books read in the last couple months,hence the double round-up this month. But some book I actually just combined or a all in one addition came out for review. So the actually books read or reviewed I shoulds say is not as much. I have  few more but I still have to write up some reviews so it will have to wait.

 

I'm actually thinking about putting up a new blog since while it is also refreshing to to have one, I also miss it. But if I do I will not put so much stress on myself and just post whatever and whenever , just for fun. 

But we shall see lol.

 

I should however post a book haul it has been forever and it its getting out of control but I think I wait toll after may since there are a few books coming out yet that I really want to get and add .

 

I hope everyone is having a great time and enjoying the nice weather and everyone is reading some great books. 

 

Here are my books for March/April 2018

DNF after first half
The Queen of All that Dies - Laura Thalassa

I just couldn't bear the stupidity any longer.

 

I didn't feel with the heroine, she came across as stupid and immature and also too emotional.

 

The whole story line didn't work for me.

 

It had a very strong YA/NA feel to me - heroine is 19. 

 

And I had to laugh internally every time I read the big bad baddie's name: Montes Lazuli - that sounded like a bad play on a semi-precious stone...also, just for the record: THAT IS NOT A TYPICAL FRENCH NAME.

 

Anyway, I was disappointed, liked "pestilence" a lot, but this wasn't for me.

Rhapsodic
Rhapsodic - Laura Thalassa ⭐️4 stars⭐️

"One day you'll have to pay all those back. Are you scared now?"

"I would be if you weren't wearing your hair in a girly little ponytail," I say, reaching for the ends of his white hair.

"It's not good manners to taunt a fairy. We have notoriously thin skin." Despite the threat, his eyes spark with excitement.

"I'm sorry," I say, "your ponytail is very masculine. I feel like I'm going to grow a beard just looking at it"

"Mouthy thing."

A Strange Hymn
A Strange Hymn - Laura Thalassa DNF

Another bad-ass turned special snowflake. sigh

Callypso was an awesome siren PI and now I spent half the book with her just being clueless and worrying that she's not pretty anymore. And of course, let's not forget the whole lot of nothing that's happening.

I liked the first book. I found the story and characters really interesting and I picked this one up right after I finished, but the more I read the more "meh" I felt.
Sad.

Once again, I blame my expectations. maybe I'll give it another shot in the future.

Low expectations, and it was really cannot-put-it-down good!
Pestilence - Laura Thalassa

Only tried it because it was free on kindle unlimited. I expected a cheesy almighty warrior falls for beautiful girl story. 

 

Boy, was I wrong!

 

This was gritty! It started with a really grisly scene where the heroine, a tough firefighter sets the male protag on fire. Literally. And painfully. And awfully.

 

Most of the story is truly spent on Pestilence slowly being showns that humans, humanity are not as awful as they seem (and they seem pretty awful).

 

I loved that it wasn't a quick insta-anything.

 

A really gripping story and some development not only in the characters, but also their relationship.

 

Can't wait for the second installment!
