Crown Of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
Crown of Midnight - Sarah J. Maas

Oh my goodness!! What an ending!!!! I'm literally heading straight to Amazon to buy book 3 after writing this. Just saying... I'm fascinated by Celaena. I'm fascinated by who she is and who she becomes. I'm fascinated by the men who love her. I'm totally rapt. This book moves so quickly. Adventure after adventure. Between the characters and the plot of the story, this series is a favorite of mine. It has all the elements I look for in a good fantasy series. Yes, in the first book I wanted more butt-kicking and she gave me that and more with this book! I definitely don't want to tell you too much, that's what the synopsis is for. I will say that you definitely need to read this series. IT is the best of her books in my opinion.

The Crown Prince's Bride (The Prince Duology)
The Crown Prince's Bride (The Prince Duology) - Donna Alward,Holly Ingraham Knowing and facing the truth are two of life's hardest tasks. The third is facing fears, especially when it comes to love and loss. One woman changed the course of many lives, but can that one woman be instrumental in bringing two grieving hearts a new beginning? The mystic of a fairytale is that we always remember the beauty and forget the heartache. The Crown Prince's Bride forces the facing of some painful truths in order to get to that great big rainbow at the end of the tunnel. Donna Alward brings her own brand of magic to an awesomely majestic romance.

Review for: THE CROWN PRINCE’S BRIDE by Donna Alward
The Crown Prince's Bride (The Prince Duology) - Donna Alward,Holly Ingraham

THE CROWN PRINCE’S BRIDE by Donna Alward is book Two in "Royal Duology " series. This is the story of Raoul and Stephani. I have read the previous book, but feel you can easily make this a standalone if you choose to do so.
Raoul is a Crown Prince whose wife CiCi died leaving him with the kids to care for. Stephani is the assistant to Raoul and also has been in love with him since her first day and she was also CiCi's cousin. But knowing nothing can every be between them under than work makes it hard for her. When Raoul ask her go to a business dinner/function she goes...but Raoul hardly recognizes Stephani...she is stunning. They both feel the loss of CiCi but they both are feeling mixed emotions with each other.
This was a sweet second chance at love story that I so enjoyed having a chance to read it!

High "Holy-Shit!" quotient
The Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham

That was awesome! I love it when pop-culture classics are really all that.

 

This one kept surprising me:

 

- Because I had NO IDEA what it was about (beyond some vague notion that there was an apocalyptic event, and some plants were involved)

 

- It changed lanes and directions non-stop (no getting too comfortable here, shit kept happening and fucking everything up)

 

- The dry, matter of fact and concise way some things were put, like

 

Oh, yeah, and one day those plants picked themselves up and went walking, whats it to you? Did I mention they are carnivore? Bah! People got over the novelty in a week or so

(spoiler show)

 

- And the sassy social commentary.

 

I was very much entertained, and could hardly stop reading, or muttering exclamations every chapter or so. Classic campy deliciousness. Loved it.

Favourite 10 books of 2017
The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas
Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy) by Taylor, Laini (2012) Paperback - Laini Taylor
Traitor to the Throne - Alwyn Hamilton
Horizons (Phobos #4) - Victor Dixen
The Final Empire. Mistborn Book One - Brandon Sanderson

The Crown's Game - Evelyn Skye

Out of the 82 books I read (hopefully 83 if I manage to finish Outlander before the end of the year), those were my favourites (well, I took all my 5 stars read of 2017 and chose 10 out of those, it's not really a scientific rating):

 

1. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: because this book was EVERYTHING. You need to read it if you haven't yet.

 

2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: and the whole trilogy. I totally enjoyed this unique universe with those amazing characters, a must read!

 

3. Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton: just WOW! This series is just so important for me, I love this world.

 

4. Phobos4 by Victor Dixen: this is the last book in my favourite series of 2016. This conclusion was epic.

 

5. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson: I just can't understand how I had never read Sanderson before this year. He is such an amazing author and I can't wait to discover more of his work.

 

6. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas: well, this series is one of my favourite of all time and this book did not disappoint.

 

7. The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye: I love this series full of Russian magic. I fell in love with the author's universe.

 

8. Warcross by Marie Lu: because, Marie Lu + video game = perfection.

 

9. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli: a beautiful book with a strong message. This book made me open my eyes.

 

10. Wild by Cheryl Strayed: I think it is the first time ever a non-fiction book is on my top 10. But this was such a great experience, I had to include it.

 

What were some of your favourite books this year?

 

Thanks for reading,
