Review: The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski

 

This book was.... 

 

Nice

 

     

 I mean I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it. I thought some parts were slower than other but in no way did that take anything away from it. Once it got going I found it to be irresistibly entertaining.


I appreciated how there was no Insta-Love connection between the two main characters. The author took her time letting them adjust to the setting and surroundings, especially in the new "situation" they found themselves in. With the romance being so subtle, we got to learn more about the culture and political aspects of the story. While their love was building, the plot was thickening, leading us to one hell of a twist.

 

 

 

There's action and betrayal. A slow burning, believable romance and an unpredictable ending that will have readers craving more. I'm very pleased with this lovely and thrilling start to a new series, and I'm interested to see what the next installment has in store for us.

Review: Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
Falling Kingdoms - Morgan Rhodes,Michelle Rowen

 

 

Read from February 16 to 20, 2014

 

This book is ridiculously good! Amazing! Hands down one of the best things I've ever read! It really does "take the cake"!

 


There's no surprise that I'm a HUGE fan of fantasy, especially High/Epic fantasy. One that involves magic and distant lands, Kingdoms and brutal battles. This one HAS. IT. ALL !!!!

 

This story is told in three POV's and in 3rd person. You would think that would make the story somewhat confusing and jumbled up but it is well constructed that you'll easily understand. Cleo, Jonas and Magus are each from a different Kingdom in the land of Mythica, and each come with their own twist in this story. Their separate lives are soon intertwined with each others. These characters suffer and witness love and hate, magic and myths all while a ruthless, vicious war is brewing. Leaving readers wondering what will happen now that the Kingdoms have fallen.


I highly recommend that everyone read this. It's one hell of a story. Fast pace and fun to read. Thrilling and intense. Super brutal and the battle scene is WHEW! Talk about Gore!!!

 

I'm eager to read the second book, Rebel Spring! So eager with excitement that as soon as I finished this one this morning (at 6:30 am) I went and got it at Walmart! It's all mine....ALL MINE!

 

Happy Reading Y'all

Review: No One Else Can Have You
No One Else Can Have You - Kathleen Hale

 

 

 

 

(I read this back in January and forgot to post my review on booklikes. So here it is. I guess because this book was so, eeehhhhhh, I forgot all about the review. Whoops)

It took a lot for me to finish this book. Thank GAH, like one of the character's says, it was a really easy book to read! "Don't cha know"

I was interested at first because it was about a murder in a small town. I like some mystery and suspense, a bit of a thriller. So I checked it out from the library. Glad I didn't buy it b/c I was happy to return this one!


It's about a murder in a small town called Friendship, Wisconsin. Kippy Bushman's best friend, Ruth has been murdered and with the help of Ruth's diary, Kippy does her own investigation to find the real murderer.
It was so cheesy right from the start and I basically knew who the killer was a couple chapters in. I found the characters to be really immature. You'd expect that, maybe, from the younger characters but from the adult characters too??!?!?! What was up with all the nick names Kippy's dad gave her. Pimple? Pickle? Cactus?!! 

 

This book was definitely not my cup of tea and I really wouldn't recommend to anyone.
