Queens of Geek - Jen Marie Wilde

So I can’t decide whether to give this 3.5 or 4 stars, so I’ll just stick with 4 because overall I did like it.

 

The best way to describe how i felt about this book is with a list.

 

What I liked:
-The diversity! I loved seeing a bisexual character done correctly. I also loved that Charlie was Asian. Taylor being autistic was also a nice addition and something you hardly ever see.
-Charlie’s love story. It was super cute <3 Alyssa knows how to take a girl out on a date.
-The fandom references, especially The Craft one (I love that movie).

 

What I didn’t like
-Lack of chemistry between Jamie and Taylor in the beginning and how it was a bit cliche. I found myself shipping Taylor with the other people she meet early on in the book. I also felt like Taylor didn’t even need a romance storyline. Her story was perfectly fine without it.
-The writing style. It was very average and at times reminded me of fan fiction. I wished there was more description on the characters’ appearances because I had a hard time picturing them for some reason.
-How predictable it was. I could see some plot points coming from a mile away.

 

All in all, this didn’t quite meet my expectations, but it was still a worthy read.

Six Tudor Queens: Writing a New Story - Alison Weir

As I wasn't expecting much, I didn't think I could be disappointed. It was a free download and I thought it sounded interesting. I was hoping for some insight in to why she felt she needed to write the series and how she came across her 'new' information, that kind of thing. What I didn't expect was six pages of the usual blurb you get at the start of the book (publication information/ author biography) and the remaining ten pages just a very quick summary of history. I imagine that it could be quite a good place to start if you have never read anything about Henry VIIIs wives but if you have a basic knowledge then it just isn't worth it. Having said that it cost nothing and just a few minutes of my life so I am not complaining.

Six Queens (Enlighten #0.5, Midnight Chronicles #0.5, Unweaving #0.5, Shift of Shadow and Soul #0.5)
Six Queens (Enlighten #0.5, Midnight Chr... Six Queens (Enlighten #0.5, Midnight Chronicles #0.5, Unweaving #0.5, Shift of Shadow and Soul #0.5) - Rhonda Sermon,Sarah K.L. Wilson,Hilary Thompson,Kristin D. Van Risseghem Ninjas & Nephilims (Enlighten #0.5) by Kristin D. Van Risseghem

A Neophilim and an Angel are assigned to take care of a little girl from the day she is born. Day after day they go out sit outside of her house watching over her and keeping her safe.

Ninjas & Nephilims was a great introduction to the Enlighten series. I can’t wait to read more of this authors work and find out more about the characters in this series.



Jonah’s Curse (Midnight Chronicles #0.5) by Rhonda Sermon

A young man, Jonah suffers from a curse, an illness and the medicine that he takes for it is killing him. In order to get the magic that he needs to stop the curse he has to leave the ones he loves cares about the most in this world and go fight with their enemy.

I really enjoyed reading Jonah’s Curse and hope that in the near future I can find out more about Jonah and The Midnight Society.



Prince of Hawks (Unweaving #0.5) by Sarah K. L. Wilson

The Prince of Hawks wants to soar through the air like a hawk with his own body and not through the mind and eyes of the hawk.

One day his home is attacked and his parents are taken from him. After his parents died he took the crown from his dead father’s head and placed it on his own. He will now lead his men into battle.

This is not the first book by Sarah K. L. Wilson that I have read and I certainly hope that it is not the last. I have enjoyed reading this little introduction into the world of the Unweaving Chronicles.



Wrath of Witches (Shift of Shadow and Soul #0.5) by Hilary Thompson

Resh the second son of a king sets out to find a talisman, a dagger and runs into a woman called Shanta who claims she can find the dagger for him. But first she wants Resh to help her find her friend. Shanta contacts a witch in town who tells her where to find this dagger. So Resh and Shanta take off on their journey to find Shanta’s friend and the dagger.

Wrath of Witches is not the first book by Hilary Thompson that I have read nor is this the first book in Shift of Shadow and Soul world that I have read. The Shift of Shadow and Soul is an amazing read. I can’t wait to read more in the Shift of Shadow and Soul world and more byf this author.
