Dragons Are People, Too
Dragons Are People, Too - Sarah Nicolas


I wanted to read Dragons Are People, Too because of the title. It seemed like such a weird title, I had to find out why it was called that way.

Turns out that dragons are people, too mainly because they are were dragons and spend most of their time in human form working for a specialized government organization fulfilling secret spying missions. Rule number one, never let them see your dragon side. When one of these missions blows up and there is camera footage of an actual drama, all dragons are being contained 'for their and everyone's safety', it is up to 16yo Kitty to prove that dragons are not so bad after all.

It never stops to surprise me why in books all the most serious and most important jobs are constantly given to teenagers. Kitty is this book in no different and has a high ranking position in the secret dragon organization even though she's still at school. As such, most of what happens with respect to the 'case' is highly unlikely and the resolution felt too simple. CINDY was nice though. And I also liked the diversity of the main characters, even though it turned out to be just another of the same kind of love story.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Well, well, well. I know this was going to happen sooner or later, with me going to the clinic, reading is just not happening. I take all the breaks that I have and the bus ride home to read but I feel like I don't get anything done. On the weekends, I actually don't read that much either because I just wanna watch vlogs on youtube or a movie/tv show.


I hate it, though. I really miss having a peaceful and quite time for reading, where I can really dive into another world, without getting interupted all the time. But right now, the clinic thing is very important and the reading thing will get better again. (But I'm super behind on ARCs I got from NetGalley and that's stressing me out big time)

Keeping Her Secret!!!
Keeping Her Secret - Sarah Davison Lady Nicolas

I requested an ARC for this, but didn't get it, so I just went ahead and preordered it.

I'm so happy I did, cause I seriously love this book so much.

 

There is nothing in this whole book that I didn't like. Nothing.

I love the setting, the summer camp.

I love the characters. Riya and Courtney, the two main characters, they were so different from each other. It took me a bit to warm up to Courtney, just because it takes a while to really get to know her. There were also so many great side characters, that I totally loved.

 

I loved Riya's love for volleyball and Courtney's love for ballet. And their love for each other. There was so much history between these two, so much unresolved stuff, so many stuff that got between them but they made it work, and I'm so glad they did, cause they are just the cutest.

 

I loved their story. The childhood besties, a kiss changes everything and they completely lose contact with each other and then they meet again at camp. Things are awkward and frustrating, but they get so much better.

I also loved the writing, it was really good and easy to get into.

 

I loved the frustrating parts. And at the same time, I really hated it, cause it shouldn't be that hard for two people with the same gender to be in love and actually show it. They shouldn't have to worry about people accepting it. Maybe that's just me, cause I just don't see a problem with it, that I can't understand people who have problems with it. Why?

 

If you are looking for something fun, easy and super cute to read, I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Dragons Are People, Too
Dragons Are People, Too - Sarah Nicolas This was a great read. There was almost non-stop action, an intense teen romance, and enough fantasy creatures to keep the imagination running wild.

Kitty is a weredragon, as in, she can change from human to dragon at will. She's also an undercover agent tasked with guarding the president's son, Jacob, along with fellow weredragon Sani. But Sani is more than a partner to her, and Jacob is more than a charge. When a mission goes bad and a dragon in her charge changes in full view of a camera, breaking the number one directive, the day goes from bad to worse, as all dragonkind are taken into custody and the president's son is kidnapped. Kitty and Sani must work to save pretty much everything and everyone, but Kitty finds her feelings for Sani keep popping up, nearly as wild as her dragon.

I really enjoyed this book. Definitely a YA read, and at moments the romance thing gets a bit intense/sappy, but otherwise a very thrilling read with lots of turns and twists that you'll never see coming. Ends at a good place, but a very strong cliff hanger. I love the race theme, too. Really makes you think.
