Bryan Prosek has such a unique and different writing style to what I’m used to, and it was really nice to read his book The Brighter The Stars. This is one of the first sci-fi novels I’ve read in quite a long time, so I have to admit, it did take me a while to get into, however, the storyline was super addicting and I became really into it which made me want to read 24/7.
I really enjoyed reading this. The writing style was unique, and so was the story. The characters were detailed and so different than what I’ve recently been reading and the entire story was honestly so refreshing. This was a super cool plotline. Our main character is none other than the heir of Hell! Klara is Lucifer’s daughter and she has been called upon to take her place in the world of royalty as the High Queen of Malum. Unfortunately, Klara doesn’t want to rule, which puts her in a tough situation with all of her guardians.
Since I just recently decided to read Normal People by Sally Rooney, it got me thinking about a lot of other books to movie or book to tv show adaptations. So, this is the Book Adaptation Tag!
This book is kind of centered around Greek mythology. Every seven years, the Agon begins and nine Greek Gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals. These Gods are hunted during the Agon by descendants of the ancient bloodlines in order for the hunters to gain immortality and power.
First of all, I want to thank Netgalley for giving me the chance to read this short preview of A Vow so Bold and Deadly by Brigid Kemmerer. From the first words of A Curse so Dark and Lonely – “There is blood under my fingernails. I wonder how many people I’ve killed this time.”- I have been completely obsessed with this series. I finished both of the previous books in a day, and I fell in love with the characters and storyline, which is why I’m so grateful to have a little sneak-peak of the newest book which has an expected publication on January 12th, 2021.
A Heart so Fierce and Broken is the second book in the Cursebreakers series and follows A Curse so Dark and Lonely. This book started off a little slow for my liking, but it did pick up with the plotline, and I loved it. Unlike the last book, Harper and Rhen aren’t present for most of this one. The point of view is from Lia Mara, daughter of Karis Luran, and Grey, who we discover is heir to the throne of Emberfall.
As a beauty and the beast retelling, this story followed that basic structure with a few different twists!
This book was absolutely incredible. Heartless is the first book I’ve read by Marissa Meyer and I loved every second of it. I was hesitant to read this since I’ve been in a bit of a book slump from the Throne of Glass series, however, this book made me want to read constantly and definitely helped me out of it.
Once again, I was whisked away to Velaris. This time for a Winter Solstice with the Inner Circle! This novella takes place after A Court of Wings and Ruin, meaning the war is over, and the Inner Circle is back home. I loved this novella. I was expecting it to be just fluff, but you can see where the next book is leading, especially now that we know it is a Nessian story.
Wow. Just, wow. I can’t even begin to describe how incredible this book was. As the final book in the Throne of Glass series, I was obviously expecting it to be sad, but this broke my heart and put it back together a thousand different times. I honestly think that this is my favorite of the entire series, through the intense character relationships and the roller-coaster of emotions, it’s just the perfect book to finish the fantastic series.
