The Shadows - J.R. Ward

Holy lord.....it hurt to read this book.

This was not a frilly book.

 

The killer wasn't just misunderstood.

s'Ex wasn't perfect.

There wasn't a Happily Ever After.

The death that occurred wasn't a secondary character's.

No one saved the day.

 

 

Oh my god.

I don't have words to describe what I feel for this book.

 

This was a heart rending, gut wrenching, sobbing through it all good hurt book. And yes it hurts to read this. I cried during the whole book. There wasn't a time during this reading that my eyes stayed dry. Not one. And it wasn't a Hunger Games cry either. The only other situation I can compare this to is when Albums Dumbledore died. 

 

The book follows the Shadows' lives. Trez and Selena and i'Am and Catra. There is a twist that none of us saw coming at the end of this book. It was ugly. There were situations in this book-like when the bitch queen had s'Ex's daughter's chart altered and had her killed because she had commoner blood in her and he didn't save her out of respect for his traditions-that made it fuckin ugly and imperfect.

 

There was Selena dying and not being heroically saved because it doesn't work like that. There was i'Am and Catra sleeping together. The villain of the hour was the Queen of s'Hisbe.

 

This book had so many imperfections that it is the most perfect book I've read in this year.

Books of March and Future Books of April

 

In my opinion it have been a great month. I have read a great deal of good books and once again I am satisfied with the amount of books I've read... Although two of them were plays - but Jeppe on the Hill was written in such old Danish that it reminded more of German, so that was a great challenge. 

 

But it is a new month, with new categories! 

Today is April Fool's Day and though I do not enjoy the pranks and such myself, it seems only naturally that this month's category should be humor and what is the opposite of humor? Tragedy! Just like an old fashioned greek play!

 

The choice for the humorous book is:

 

 

 

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen by Paul Torday is one of the best book I've ever read. I laughed out loud several times! I have for a long time wanted to reread it and now I think it is time again!

 

The tragic book will be:

 

 

Everyone seems to love The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I have not really wanted to read him myself, but now I am giving him a chance. Who knows? Maybe I will need to buy a lot of John Green-books when I'm done. I have of course heard a lot about it and my conclusion is that this would be a good choice for a bit of tragedy.

 

And for my book club's choice of the month it is Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. I have once read her book Slammed, but I was not so positive. It is time to give her a second chance!

 

 

These was my books of March and my TBR of April. Looking once again forward to new books!
