Cover Reveal: Unhinged by A. G. Howard

Today I'm sharing the cover for Unhinged by A. G. Howard :D I love it. Unhinged is the sequel to the fairytale book Splintered, based on Alice in Wonderland. I loved that book. The writing is awesome, and the characters are amazing, and the world was just so beautiful and exciting. I'm super excited for this sequel to come out :) But I'm also worried, because I love Jeb so much, and I hate triangles, and I don't want anything more between Alyssa and Morpheus.. hih :D Still! Awesome cover. <3 What do you think?

Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole. She was crowned Queen of the Red Court and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the boy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly appealing Morpheus. Now all she has to do is graduate high school.

That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland – where she (partly) belongs.

Could she leave Jeb and her parents behind again, for the sake of a man she knows has manipulated her before? Will her mother and Jeb trust her to do what’s right? Readers will swoon over the satisfying return to Howard’s bold, sensual reimagining of Carroll’s classic.

Review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

I had seen so many people loving this book. So I just had to buy it. But once I got it, I wasn't sure if I would read it, because like I always do, I had to peek at the ending. And I was not all that pleased with what I found. And yet I could not let this book out of my head. Because it sounded so amazing and sweet and cute. Then today I just needed to read it. Cause I've been sick for a while, and I really wanted a cute book to read. This was perfect.

I loved this book from the very beginning. I loved the writing, the story, the characters. There is just so many words in this book. I won't be quoting any of the quotes, but I loved almost every sentence in this book. This book is told from the point of view of Eleanor and Park. Both are amazing characters. I don't know who I liked the most. They are both weird and cute and all kinds of amazing. I just loved both of them to pieces. Sniffs.

I don't know how to talk about my love for this book. But I will try. Because I feel that I have a lot of words inside me about this book and these characters and that ending. Such an evil ending. Yet with hope. I think. Will need to discuss it some, at the end of my review, with spoilers, but will post a warning then :) First I need to talk about the amazing plot and perfectly broken characters.

There are two main characters in this book. First there is Eleanor. Whom I loved so much. She's just amazing. I was a bit unsure about her in the beginning, since she did seem a bit weird. But I understood her. And I grew to love her so much. Eleanor is an amazing girl. She's fat, and has wild red hair. She wears weird man clothes. Yet she is one of the most amazing characters I have read about. She's fun and sweet and loving. I loved her hair. I loved her size. I'm not sure I loved her clothes, though ;p

I loved reading from her point of view. Although it was a bit depressing. Because she does not have a good life. At all. And it made me so sad. Yet it was perfect, and I loved every moment of it. She lives with her mom and four younger siblings. I kind of liked the younger kids. Maybe. We didn't get to know them enough, to be honest. And they were a tiny bit annoying. But they were also a bit adorable, and I felt sorry for them a lot. Unsure about her mom. I might have liked her a bit. But also kind of hated her.

See, she has this husband. And he is an asshole. Truly. And yet I didn't think he was as bad as some other stories I have read.. And yet, he was awful. I hated him. They all hated him. And yet she was with him. Grrr. But I also kind of loved it, because it made the story pretty interesting, which I loved so much. We learn so much about Eleanor and her family life. How poor they are. Where her real dad is. Who I kind of really hated as well. Sigh. I hated her life. Yet I loved her for it, which makes sense to me.

Then there is Park, who I loved so much. I'm pretty sure I loved him a tiny bit more than Eleanor. Maybe. He was just so amazing. Half Korean and he's a total badass. lol. Not really, but he does take taekwondo with his dad and younger brother. I just loved him so much. He's kind and sweet and all kinds of awesome. He lives with his family, with his grandparents next door as well. He has a good life. And I loved that. And even though he has a good life, he's still an amazing unique character. Adored him so.

I won't say more about the characters than that. Just, sigh. They are all amazing. And I fell in love with Eleanor and Park so hard. This book is about their love story, set in 1986. And oh. It is a sweet love story. But it also has some heartbreak. Sobs. But not too much high school drama, which I loved. I did love the school scenes, though, with Tina and everyone else. I loved Eleanor's two girl friends at school. They were kind of adorable. And Park's best friend, I loved him too. Well, for the most part, I think.

There is a lot of things happening in this book. There is the romance, which is a huge part of the book, but not all of it. There is heartbreak. And some pretty sad scenes. Yet there are so many happy moments that made me smile. I just loved this book so much. I loved reading about Eleanor and Park. They were just adorable together. I just wish this book had been longer. I truly wish that. Sigh. I never wanted it to end. I wanted them to be alone and happy together more. I wanted that with all my heart.

Anyway. Eleanor & Park is such an amazing book. And you all need to read it. So if you own it, go read it right away. If you don't own it, go buy it. And you need to read it as soon as possible. Because it really is amazing, and I'm sure you will all love it. Just, please, let there be a sequel to this book. I need one. And also.. Please let it be a sequel that happens right where the book ends, or just a few months later. I still want it to be a young adult book, with the same characters :) I'm just really glad I read this book.

And now for some spoilery thoughts about the ending of this book. This is your warning. Don't want to know? Don't read more. I did like the ending. Sort of. But only the last word, to be honest. Because, there is one thing that I can't stand, and that is long seperations. And this was a whole year. Where Eleanor did nothing. And it broke my heart so much. I need to know what will happen next. What happened to her family? We never learned. I need to know. Sigh. I just need a sequel, or epilogue. <3

Review: Gustav Gloom and the Nightmare Vault by Adam-Troy Castro

I've waited for this sequel since I read the first book about Gustav Gloom in August. When I finally got it a few days ago, I knew I had to read it right away. So I did. And it was worth it. But it is really short. And I do wish it had been longer. But it is still an amazing book with an amazing plot and such perfect characters. The cover is one of the most gorgeous ones.

That is one thing I like the most about these books. The artwork. The covers are stunning, but they aren't all there is. There are drawings in these books. Amazing drawings of Gustav and Fernie and all of them. They are just so gorgeous, and I loved all of them. I cannot wait to see more of this gorgeous art. It's so perfect. It fits the story really well too.

My review won't be that long, because this is a short book. Even though it is short, it's full of amazing. I love the writing, and I enjoyed it better than I enjoyed the first book. I'm unsure if I liked the plot more in the first book or in this one. It just felt so short in this one.. but I'm very sure that I loved Gustav and Fernie even more this time. They just get more perfect for every page. I also love Fernie's big sister, Pearlie. She's amazing. And their cat is adorable! Weird, but cute. I liked their dad too :)

Most of this book takes place inside the Gloom house. We learned a lot of things about it in the first book. Gustav Gloom lives there all by himself, just a ten years old boy. But he also live with a bunch of shadows. Which you really need to read about, because I loved getting to know them all, and the why's about it all. There are some good shadows, whom I liked, sort of. But there are also bad ones. Really bad ones. And I hated those. Although I loved them as well, since I do enjoy a good dark book ;p

I liked the plot in this book. It's mostly about this Ice Cream driver man. But he isn't normal. He's a shadow eater. And ohhh. It was awesome to read about. It's a bit creepy and horror like, and I loved every moment of it. Also kind of wished it was darker. Hih. But I loved the plot. It was exciting and interesting, and I cannot wait to know what happens next about it all. October seemed like an awesome villain. Even though he had done some things that broke my heart a lot. And yet I loved it like crazy.

We learn a lot of things in this book. We learn more about the crazy Gloom house, more about all the different doors and rooms and just everything. I loved it. And we also learn a lot more about Gustav. Which I loved. Because he is my favorite character. But oh. He's such a sad little boy all alone. I'm so glad he had Fernie. They are both amazing characters, and their friendship is the best. We learn about his past. His parents. Sobs. And why he can't go outside the house. I found it to be very heartbreaking.

This is an amazing book. And if you still haven't read the first one, you need to do so right away. Because Gustav Gloom is such an amazing person, and you will all fall in love with him. He and Fernie are just ten years old, and I must admit that I wish they had been older so that there could have been some romance as well, but I also loved that this is a middle grade series. Because they are just so adorable as children, and I loved them all so much. I even loved Fernie's very overprotective dad ;p

I'm giving Gustav Gloom and the Nightmare Vault a five star. Or a four point five. I loved it a lot, but I'm really sad that it was so short. There is kind of just one thing happening in the book, one adventure in one day, and I wanted so many. Wish this book had never ended. So I kind of felt like there could have been more. But I also loved this book so much, so I have to give it a five star. <3 I cannot wait to read the third book, out in August. <3 I hope there will be many more books about Gustav and Fernie :)

Review: The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman

His Dark Materials in one of the best middle grade trilogy there is. I loved every moment of these books. All three of them are perfect. But heartbreaking. The ending of this book broke my heart so much. Yet I refuse to believe it, hih. I will have hope, that there might be a sequel, somewhere. I need one, if my heart is to ever heal from this. But it is also so, so perfect.

The Amber Spyglass starts right where the second book ended. So be aware that there will be spoilers in my review for book one and two in this series. Just so you know :) But oh. I don't know how to share my thoughts about this book. How to share everything that I read about, the creatures, the characters, the world. Everything was so perfect, fantastic and heartbreaking.

We learn so much in this book. Some things made my head hurt a bit. But not much. And most of the time I loved reading about all of it. We get to see lots of new worlds, made by the knife, and I loved all of them. Creepy, though. And so many new characters. Tons of them. I loved them. I even grew to love a few characters I hated in the first two books. The Amber Spyglass is told from many different point of views. And at times it made me angry, because I just wanted Lyra and Will. But I also loved them the other point of views, because we needed to read them. And I was happy about it all. For the most part :)

I can't begin to describe this book. And I won't talk about the plot much, like I usually do, how the book begins and such. It's much too complicated. I'm going to start by talking about Lyra and Will, the main characters in these books. I love Lyra so much. She's just so amazing and loving and kind. She's so strong, and I love her so much. She tries her best all the time, and she's so amazing to watch around Will. Sigh. There is just so much love between them, though nothing until the end of the book. Sobs.

There is still lots of the book from Lyra's point of view, but less than the first book, and that made me a bit sad. I wished to read more from her. But still. I loved what we got from her. I loved seeing her and Pan together. They are just amazing and so sweet. Although when this one scene happened, when they enter the world of the Dead, it broke my heart. So heartbreaking. And sobs. But it was also so perfect, and I'm so glad it was included in this book. It was just written so well, and I loved every moment of it.

Then there is Will. I love him so much. Favorite character. He's so young, but he's still so amazing. He's really strong and kind and loving. But yeah. He is still broken. About his mother, and his father. And yeah. It breaks him a lot of times. And my heart broke so much for him, yet I loved every part of it. Will is just amazing. And I loved reading his point of view. I just wish there had been so much more of him. Because I loved him so, and I need more and more and more. But I did love every moment with him.

While we get lots of new characters in this book, we also get some old ones as well. Like Iorek Byrnison. I still love him so much. He's just so strong and kind. There is also Lord Asriel, whom I still don't know if he was supposed to be the villain. Maybe in the first book, but not in this. I think. And Mrs Coulter confused me as well. But I loved the changes they had. But yeah. I can't decide how I felt about them both. I think I grew to like them a bit. Maybe. I did enjoy reading about the witch, Serafina, though :)

We also see so much more of Mary. And I loved her so. But I was worried, because she was to be the serpent, and I worried in the whole book. Grrr. But I loved her. We get her point of view so much. She meets these new creatures, and I loved reading about their life so much. It was amazing and full of wonder. And those birds that ruined things for them! Ahh. They were awful and yet I loved how they were written, because it was unique and awful and all kinds of perfect. I just loved every part of it.

There is so much in this book. Lots of witches. Many angels. Lots of dæmons. This book has it all. And I'm not talking about it anymore. But it is all so amazing, and I loved it all. There is lots of action in this book, even a war. I loved it. There is mystery and adventure and heartbreak and love. I loved reading this book so much, even though the ending is cruel. So cruel. It just broke me. But I loved Will and Lyra so much. And I'm so happy that I read this series now. Will remember it always. Now, you go buy it.

The covers of these books are just so gorgeous, the editions that I have. It's an UK paperback box set, and I love it so. But yeah. I think I need a second one, to look pretty, because one of the reasons for why I don't like reading paperbacks is that they get ruined no matter how carefully I read them :\ Sniffs. The spines of my pretty copies does not look so good. But I don't love them any less. Still. I might have to buy a second of this box set :) Just to look at, and love. Sigh. These books were so  amazing. <3

Update: Newer and better review of the book can be found here.

Review: The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman

The Subtle Knife is shorter than the first book. That depressed me. Until I saw how long the last book is. I cannot wait to start it. This book was amazing, even though it was shorter. It was easier for me to read this than the first one, must be because I was more used to the writing and the words this time. I loved this book. Unsure if I loved it more or less. Wished for a bit more fantasy, but I still loved it so much. It was just perfect.

My review will not be that long this time. I'm sure of it. Because there isn't all that much happening in this book that I can talk about without spoiling it all. And I don't want to spoil anything. Because oh. This book was wonderful. And I loved reading it so much. I loved the characters. The story. The writing. I just loved everything. Mostly I loved Lyra and Will. They were amazing.

This book is told from a lot more point of views. At times I didn't approve of that. But mostly I loved it, because we got to know some characters a lot more. Like Lee Scoresby. He was in the first book, and I adored him. He and Lyra were close; he was almost like a father to her. And oh. I liked him a lot. We get to know him really well in this book, and read a lot from his point of view. We get to see his dæmon a lot too, his Hester. Sigh. She's a hare, and I loved her so much. Together they are perfect. But there was this one scene that broke my heart. Sobs.

This book starts where the first one ended. We see lots more of Lyra. And I just adore her, still. She does something stupid, though, and I didn't like that. Sniffs. But I didn't blame her either. For the most part. She's still just as strong and kind and loving. Her and Pan are amazing to read about. I just love her dæmon so much. He changes shape a lot, though. And I adored it. Not sure which shape I like him the best in. But I love him as a mouse :) Sigh. They are just perfect. And I love reading her adventures.

We get to know a new person in this book. Will. He's a twelve year old boy, and I loved him so much. He's pretty broken. He lives in another world, far from what Lyra is used to. He lives alone with his mom, who's kind of mad. I felt so sorry for him. And my heart broke for him so many times. But I loved him. So much. While he is broken, he is also strong and kind. We get to read from his point of view a lot, and I loved that so much. He's a big part in this book. Even more in the next one, I'm sure of it.

I'm not going to talk that much about the plot in this book. Just a little bit. It is a lot about Lyra's sort of compass, that I can't remember the name of, lol. But I loved it so much. How she can read it, and what it tells her. Sigh. But it is also about this knife. The subtle knife. And it's a special knife that can do lots of awesome things. I just loved reading about it so much. But gah. To become the bearer of it was awful. Sobs. It broke my heart so much. But I loved it, still. Because it's beautiful and heartbreaking.

We learn of three different worlds in this book. The one where Lyra came from, although we don't see it in this book. The world where Will came from, closest to our world. And the world where they meet. It was such an awful place. With Specters, that sort of murders adults. I loved reading about it. So special and unique and amazing. The plot in this book is so good. And that is all I'm saying about it. The witches and everyone in this book is getting ready for a war. Which I think we'll see lots of in the next book.

There is a lot of characters in this book. Most I can't remember or spell their names. But I loved reading about them all. This woman who helped Lyra was amazing, and I hope we'll see more of her. This old creepy man from Will's world was awful. I hated him. We also get to know the witches a lot more. I loved them. But oh. A scene near the end broke my heart so much. It was awful and so heartbreaking. Yet I loved every second of it. This book was just so good. I loved all of it, truly. Now to read the last one.

If you have only read book one, then you must read this sequel. It's amazing. And so perfect. If you still haven't started this series, then you must. Because it is an amazing middle grade series, with amazing characters and perfect story. I'm worried about book three, because I know the ending is heartbreaking. Since I've already read it. But I need to read it, still. I have to. Because I'm so in love with these characters and this world. You need to read this book. You won't be disappointed. It's really perfect.

Update: Newer and better review of the book can be found here.

Review: Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

I've been meaning to start this series forever. Then yesterday a blogger said that Lyra is a part of the most tragic love story. And I didn't think these books had any romance, because it's middle grade. So I just had to read the ending of book three. And it broke my heart. And I knew I had to start this series right away. And I'm glad I did. Will be starting book two right away :)

I watched the Golden Compass years ago, the movie based on this book. I did enjoy it back then, but not enough to start the books. Now that I finally read this amazing book, I see that there is a lot of difference between the book and movie. Biggest part, movie ends when there is still one hundred pages left in the book. This book was just so much more than I expected.

I kind of knew before starting Northern Lights that I would love it. I just didn't know how much I would love it. It isn't the best book I have read, but I still loved every part of it. It made me cry. It made me smile. And it is just beautiful. The writing is perfect, and the story is just amazing. And amazing middle grade fantasy book. I'm so glad I read it. And if you still haven't done so, then you need to get starting :)

This is the story of Lyra, an eleven year old orphan girl. She's living at the Jordan College, and she have a pretty good life. I loved reading about her. Loved that the book is from her point of view, because yeah. She's just so good. Kind and sweet. And protective. She's also really smart. I just adored her. I also loved reading about her life at the college. The people working there, and her friend Roger :) It was all just amazing to read about. And I'm glad I managed to enjoy it, which I would not normally do ;p

I don't know how to talk about this book. And because of that I don't think my review will be too long. I hope. I'm usually wrong about that :) But oh. I just loved Northern Lights so much. It's an amazing story, a great adventure, and the tale of great friendships. We meet a lot of characters in this book. I loved them all. Well. Some I hated. I loved Ma Costa. I kind of loved the Master of the college. I liked Roger. I enjoyed reading about them all, though, because they play a big part in this book. Loved most of them.

The plot of this book is about Dust. For the most part. And I won't say more than that. But I loved reading about it, though I wished we had gotten to know more. The main plot is the dæmons. Every human being in this book have a dæmon. Some kind of animal, that they must be around at all times. It's a part of themselves. And I loved those connections so much. Lyra have Pantalaimon. Pan for short. And oh. He's adorable. I loved reading about him. Since she's a child, he can change form all the time.

And I suppose that is all I'm sharing about the plot. There is just so much happening, and I don't want to spoil anything, because I loved reading about everything. There is just so much amazing in this book. Lots of beautiful things. But also awful heartbreaking things. There is many bad people in this book. I hated it so. But I also loved it. It was just so perfect. This book made me cry a lot. Didn't know it would be that powerful to read about. And I'm glad. I'm glad because I connected with this book that much.

There is so many amazing characters in this book. Like Farder Coram. I loved him. He was really kind to Lyra. We also get to know the gyptians really well, and I loved reading about them all. They were amazing. Then there is Lord Asriel. I don't know how I felt about him. I didn't like him from page one. He just seemed evil. Sigh. And Mrs Coulter. I did not like her at all. But she has a huge part in this book, still, and I did enjoy reading about her, cause she's kind of pure evil. Most of them are. Love.

One of the characters I loved the most was the panserbjørn Iorek Byrnison. I loved him. We get to know him really well, and the other bears as well. They were scary, though. Really scary. And I loved them to pieces. Amazing plot twists. We also see many witches. I loved reading about them too. There is just too much in this book. And I'm doing a poor job of describing it all. But still. I loved it. All of it. Even that heartbreaking evil ending. Sobs. But it made me so excited for the sequel, and I cannot wait.

Northern Lights was an amazing book. And I'm just really glad I read it. It's perfect. I fell in love with all of it. The characters, the story, and everything. There is strength in this book. There is heartbreak and tears. Every moment is amazing. Will be reading book two tomorrow. I cannot wait. Then book three, which I know that the ending will kill me. I still cannot wait. Sigh. Haven't read this yet? Then do so. Please. It is an amazing fantasy book, and I loved it so much. You will too. I'm sure. Give it a chance :)

Title Reveal: Divergent #3 by Veronica Roth

Early this morning we got more amazing news from the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth. Title for the third book! And ahh. I'm just so excited. Divergent is one of the best books. I just love it so much. And I can't wait to read how it all ends. Also. The movie is coming soon :D I cannot wait for that either. I mostly approve of the casting. I think. We'll see once we get some official stills :) Do you like the title?


I kind of love this title. Although at first I had no idea what it meant (A) But that's what google is for, lol. And now I think it sounds amazing. And oh. I just cannot wait to read Allegiant :D Hoping it will have the most perfect ending to this amazing trilogy. And tons of Tobias. Yeah. I need lots more of him :) I also cannot wait to see the cover. Hoping it's even more gorgeous than Divergent and Insurgent :D

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth’s #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

My book recommendation of Divergent. My review of Insurgent. Both really old :)

Mini Review: The Shattered Mountain by Rae Carson

After having read and loved The Bitter Kingdom yesterday I knew I had to read this novella right away. And I'm so glad I did. The Shattered Mountain is an amazing short story. Although it isn't that short, it is one hundred pages. Yet I wished it was longer. Because I loved reading about Mara, and her story. The writing is as beautiful as ever. And the world just as deadly.

My review won't be all that long, since the novella is short and I don't won't to spoil everything that happens :) The Shattered Mountain is told from the point of view of Mara, who we get to know in the Girl of Fire and Thorns books. This is the story about her life before she is the maid of Elisa. How she got there. And oh. It is amazing and heartbreaking and just perfect.

If you read the summary, you know what this novella is about. Mara is seventeen years old, and she's living with her Pa in a small village. I hated her father. He abuses her, and he didn't seem nice at all. Happy we didn't see too much about him. But she's also happy. Because she has a boyfriend; Julio. And oh. Julio just seemed so amazing, and I loved him, and it breaks my heart, because having read the other books I knew what would happen. Sobs. But so amazing. It is really heartbreaking. And I loved it all.

The same day that Mara and Julio is planning on running away their village gets attacked by the Inviernos. And oh. It is so heartbreaking. Because they are killing everyone with their fire and arrows. Yet I loved reading about it. So many things happen after that. Mara gets away with a bunch of children, where she is the oldest one and have to take care of them all. But it's hard. Because they don't have enough food, and they have to travel in the mountain for at least a week. I loved every second of it.

We get to meet many characters as well. Loved Julio. And I loved his brother, Adán. He was just so strong. And I loved reading about Raynaldo as well. Kind and strong, yet they are both young. But tiny Teena broke my heart. She was just so little and so strong yet broken as well. I just loved reading about them all. The plot in this book is also really, really good, and I could not stop reading. There is action, heartbreak, romance and just everything. It is a very exciting read, and I'm so thrilled that I read it.

I loved reading from Mara's point of view, and I just wish it had been ever longer. I also love these novella's that Rae writes. I hope she will write many more from this amazing series :) I think you all would love this short story. Especially if you have read The Girl of Fire and Thorns. But even if you haven't read those books I think you would love this one. Because it's amazing. And heartbreaking. But it have some hope. It is a truly amazing novella, and I simply cannot wait to read more from Rae Carson.

Review: The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson

This trilogy is one of the best fantasy trilogies there is. All three books are amazing. I don't know how to talk about my love for these books. I just adore fantasy book so much, and these are incredible. The writing is perfect. The characters are amazing and strong and so loveable. And the story is perfect. Unique and special and all kinds of awesome. So glad I got to read this early. The Bitter Kingdom is the best one. So good.

This book has the perfect ending to this amazing trilogy. There is a lot of action. So many deaths. Heartbreak. Love. Romance. The Bitter Kingdom has it all. I never wanted it to end. But I'm happy with the ending. For the most part. I do want more; so much more. But it is also perfect, and I'm so thrilled about it. I know that I will re-read these books. After I get my hardcover :)

Since this is the end of a trilogy, you should not read my review if you do not want to get spoiled about the first two books. Because there will be spoilers. Lots of them. But hopefully not for this book ;) But there is a lot to talk about for me. Lots of characters I must mention. Well, only a few, but they are special to me. There is so much character love in this book. And I loved every part of it. Even all the heartbreak. It made me tear up many times. But it also made me smile and it filled my heart with warmth so many times. It could not have been better.

The Bitter Kingdom starts where The Crown of Embers ended. Elisa and her three companions are going after the kidnapped Hector; Elisa's love. At first there isn't too much happening, because they are mostly just trying to catch up to those who have taken Hector. But I loved reading about, still. Because Elisa is such an amazing character. I loved her so much. She's a lot stronger in this book. She kills people. She makes difficult decisions. And I loved her so much for it all. She's really a true heroine.

The book is told from her point of view. Which I loved. But we also get a few chapters from Hector's point of view! I loved those the most. It also made a lot of sense that we got to see his point of view, and I'm so happy about it. Even though his thoughts were mostly heartbreaking. But he is an amazing person. Loyal. Strong. Loving. He cares about Elisa so much. As a Queen, but also as a person. He loves her. And their love is just so damn amazing, and I'm really glad that I ended up loving it too, hih :)

I don't really want to give away more about the plot. We get to see a lot of running and traveling, and it is all amazing. We get to see a lot more of the Inviernos. Some of them are okay. Like Storm and his sister, Waterfall. But most are not. There are so many evil people. And I just loved reading about them all. Such an amazing plot. We also learn a lot more about the Godstone, and the power it have. It is awesome. I enjoyed reading about Elisa's Godstone in this book a lot more than I did before. I liked it.

That is all I'm saying about the plot. Well. It is an adventure. An amazing adventure. Full of danger and awful things. But also happy moments. And evil creatures. Like the scorpions in this mine. Shudders. So awful. And they are done so well, that I loved it all so much. The plot in this book is better than in the first two books. And it all makes sense. And I loved reading about it all. There is lots of conflict, but yeah. I loved that too. This story is just so amazing, and I couldn't have loved it any more than I did.

There is so many characters in this book. Have mentioned Elisa and Hector, who I love the most. They also have the most amazing love story. Swoons. But also, sobs. So good. I might have disliked that they didn't talk nicely about dead Alejandro.. Makes me feel I shouldn't have loved him in the first book. Still. Wish we had seen more of his son, Rosario. But he is still just as amazing as always. Love. We see a bit more about Ximena as well. Still not sure how I feel about her. Love and hate, like Elisa feels about her.

Mara and Belén is a big part in this book. And Storm too. They are the three people who are going after Hector with Elisa. I just adore Mara so much. She's an amazing friend. And I loved her relationship with Belén :) Although I wish it had been a bit more. Still, so sweet. We also meet another new character, Mula. Just a little girl. And she's so amazing. I adored her. We see a bit more about Alodia. Wish we had seen her and Elisa together more. Because I kind of love her a lot. And Storm is amazing! Adored him.

I think that is all I had to say about this book. The Bitter Kingdom is just amazing. Epic. It is the perfect finale. And I loved every part of it. Just wish it had been longer :) But it is perfect just the way it is. I loved reading about Elisa and everyone around her. I really loved reading about this amazing world. It is all done so well. Although I still don't approve of all that long traveling, lol ;p But it makes sense, still. I loved the fighting. The drama. But mostly I loved the romance. It is all kinds of perfect. I adored it.

You will all love The Bitter Kingdom. It is the perfect last book to this series. Even with all the heartbreak. It is just so amazing. So when it comes out in August, you need to read it right away. It is worth it. This whole series is worth it. And I'm so glad that I read them all :) Thank you, Rae, for writing a perfect fantasy series. <3 Thank you so much to the publisher, Greenwillow Books, and to Edelweiss for the chance to read and review TBK early. <3 I'm so, so happy that I were able to read it this early.

Review: The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas

Been wanting to read this book ever since I saw that awesome cover. I think it's gorgeous and special. When I got accepted to read it I was so happy, and I just had to read it right away :) And oh. The Burning Sky is an amazing book. I loved it so much. Don't think I had any flaws with it. Okay, wished for a tiny bit less drama at one point, but it wasn't bad at all; I still loved it.

The summary of this book speaks of magic and elixirs and a prince. All of which is in this book. What it doesn't mention is that most of the book takes place at an all-boys school. And that it is so so amazing. The plot is unique and awesome. The writing is perfect. The characters are really, really amazing and I loved all of them. The action and excitement are done great.

The book is told from two different point of views. First there is Iolanthe Seabourne, a sixteen year old girl. She's amazing. I loved her so much. She's strong and kind. She lives with her sort-of-father, Master Haywood. I kind of disliked him. He wasn't very kind. But when we learn why, what happened to him, I could sort of understand it. Iolanthe lives in an amazing place. A Domain where everyone is a mage. With small powers over the four elementals. Iolanthe have power over three of them, Fire, Water and Earth. I loved reading about her using Fire and such. It was awesome. She even have a wand. Hih :)

We learn lots of things about her life. Won't talk about it all. But will talk about the beginning, which is sort of mentioned in the summary. Iolanthe read in a book that a lightningbolt could save any kind of broken elixir. And she's desperate to have it fixed. Although no one have ever summoned lightning in ages. But she manages to do it. Which is where our plot starts. Because now she's in danger. The Inquisitor wants her. Because she's powerful. Her Master gets her safe. Mostly. Then there's the prince.

Prince Titus is the other person this book is told from. And I loved him so much. He's just really amazing. He is also broken, which we see many times. Sobs. He's also alone. And because of that he's a bit mean at times, and he lies a lot. But I didn't blame him for that. He lives at his palace, because he is the ruler of the Domain. But that isn't really true, because Atlantis seems to be ruling everything. We didn't learn enough about them, but what I did see of them wasn't very nice. They are awful people.

Titus's mother died many years ago, and she was a Seer. She told him about his destiny, when he would die, and who he needed to protect. She told him what time it would happen on, when he first met the mage who is destined to take down the Bane. And it happens. When he see the lightningbolt made by Iolanthe, he knows it is her he is supposed to protect. But it gets really complicated, and I'm not good enough at describing it all, so I won't try to ;p But it is amazing and I loved all of what happened.

Titus has been planning for his destiny his whole life. What would happen after he found the one who would help him. But he didn't plan for her to be she. Because he goes to an all-boys school in a nonmage world, in London. This book is set in 1883. I think. But to keep her safe, she must pose at a boy. Archer Fairfax. And I loved it all. That's all I'm going to say about the plot :) But oh. It is so amazing. I loved the parts at the school, I loved reading about the other boys. They were awesome. I just enjoyed it all.

I won't say more of the plot, like I said. There is just too much happening. And it is all so good and awesome and I couldn't have loved it any more. I just could not stop reading this book. Anyway. There is a lot of magic in this book. Sort of. And I loved reading about it. There is this canary that takes a big part in the book. Hih. I loved it. This book is special. And I know I will re-read it at some point. To relive it all. Like the Crucible. This fairy-tale-come-to-life book. It was amazing! Loved it to death.

Then there is the relationship between Iolanthe and Titus. It isn't going very well, because of all his lies. But even so. They just fit together so well. At least I think so :) There is some romance in this book. But not that much, and I might have wanted more. But I have hopes for the sequel. <3 Still, it is good enough in this book. There is also some drama. But not like other books. No triangle. No kissing other people, thank god. This book is just about them, and I loved that so much. I cannot wait for more.

I don't know what else to say. I want to talk about it all. But I won't, because it is spoilery, and I loved reading about it so much, and I think all of you will too. There is action, mystery, excitement and some love. Amazing magic. There is just too many things to love in this book. There is hurt and a few broken hearts, but nothing too brutal. There are a bunch of evil people, though. But I kind of loved reading about them. They were done well. Everything was. I just don't know what else to say. Just, love.

I cannot wait for the sequel to come out. But omg. I will have to wait so long for it! Wish I could read it right away. <3 But yeah. It probably isn't out until September 2014. Forever away. But I do think the wait will be worth it. Anyway. You need to read this book when it comes out this September. You must do it.
Thank you so much to the publisher Balzer + Bray and Edelweiss for the chance to read and review this early. <3 I loved it so much, and I cannot wait to get my gorgeous hardcover in September :)

Review: A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge

I hadn't heard of this book until a blogger friend of mine read it. And she loved it. Really loved it. So I just knew I had to buy it. Because the cover is so gorgeous, and I really love the summary. Also, I just adore middle grade books, because most of the time they are more special than other books. A Face Like Glass is an amazing book. And I'm so glad I read it. I also really wish for a sequel ;p There doesn't have to be. But I want one :)

A Face Like Glass is a stunning novel. It is just really amazing. The plot is unique and special and just all kinds of awesome. The writing is really good, even though it did give me a headache, and the characters are all so good and likeable and I just loved them all. There is many of them. The book is told from a few different point of views, but mostly just from the point of view of Neverfell. The others are just small glimpses :)

I would never be able to talk about this plot. About everything that happens. So I'll just mention the beginning and a few awful and amazing things, and talk about some feelings and all the special characters. Hopefully I won't spoil anything that you can't already read in the summary :) This is the story of Neverfell. She's a little girl at twelve years old. For the past seven years she has lived underground sort of locked up in a tunnel with Grandible, the Cheesemaster. I kind of really loved him, even though he did keep her hidden. Because it was for a reason, and I'm pretty sure he loves her.

Neverfell is a strange child. She doesn't remember anything at all before the age of five, when she was found by Grandible after having fallen into his neverfell. She's different than everyone, though. At first she doesn't know why she's different; she thinks she's ugly. And that kind of broke my heart. But I also loved it. Before she finds out the truth, she's just living there with him and not really meeting anyone. She isn't allowed to leave the tunnel. But still she learns. She learns about the way things are in Caverna.

And oh. I loved reading about the underground city of Caverna. It just sounded so amazing and also a bit horrifying. The people have lived underground for five centuries. And because of that they don't have normal faces. They can't change their expression, unless they have had a Facesmith teach them one. Most of them only know about five faces each. And that was really heartbreaking, to be honest. It hurt me. It was so different that I just couldn't help but love it. I loved reading about all the strange things.

The thing about Neverfell's face is that she can show emotions. She doesn't have any Faces. Everything she thinks and feels is showing up on her face. And that is terrifying to most. I loved it. But yeah. It did make her different. She did have one friend, though, for those seven years. Erstwhile. I kind of really adored him. Okay, he seemed a bit weird at first, but I grew to love him. No romance, but an amazing friendship. I wish he had been there more, but I loved the parts that he did have in the book. <3

I won't say how things happen next, what happens to Neverfell. But she does end up outside the tunnels. She ends up right in the city, and at the palace, where the Grand Steward rules. I don't know how to describe him. He was amazing. And awful. And I just love him. He's really, really, really old, and he's sort of mad. Really mad. He is a split person, left side and right side. And I loved reading about it all, so that's all I'm going to say about it ;p He was an really interesting character that I loved reading about.

There are so many characters in this book. I don't know how I felt about them all. I did however love reading about all of them. Because they are all interesting, and I loved the part each of them played in this book. There is Zouelle who I'm still unsure about. She did some awful things. But she also do some good, and she seems to be an honest friend to Neverfell. Maybe. Her Uncle, Maxim Childersin, I didn't understand that much. Won't say more than that ;p He has a really big part in this book, though.

Then there was Madame Appeline, who I kind of always hated. She just seemed really false to me, since she's a Facesmith and all. But Neverfell seemed to love her, and seem to think she had an connection to her. I was heartbroken to know the truth of it all. But it was also amazing to read about. But yes. It was heartbreaking, and it made me really sad, but it was also so, so good. Another character is the Kleptomancer. He was weird. And mad. But I kind of liked him, still. He's really interesting, though ;p

There is so many places to get to know in this book. And I loved reading about them all. Just wished we had seen ever more from the Cheese tunnels. Sigh. I loved that place. We see a lot of the palace, though, and it was such an awful place. Lots of murderers there and other awful things. Then there was the drudges. I hated the life they had. And with just five faces they couldn't do anything about it. I really hated it, because it was an awful way to live. But I also loved reading about it, because it was amazing.

Heh. I think I've said enough about this book now :) There is just so much. There are so many things happening, and I didn't say anything about it all. But yeah. This is a long book, and it took me some time to read it. Wished it had been even longer. A Face Like Glass is such a good book. I loved reading about all the characters and the things they did. I loved reading about all the places underground and all the magical things the people could do with Wine and Cheeses and Perfume. Sigh. All so perfect.

I think I'm rating this book with a four point five star. I loved every part of it. I truly did. But I'm not giving it a five star, because I did have a few troubles with the writing. It was just too much for my mind, hih. It gave me a huge headache. But even though the writing/words bothered me a bit, I still loved the writing very much. Because the book is written well. If you haven't read this yet, then I really think that you must :) Not the best middle grade book I have read, but one of my favorites, still. <3

Cover Reveal: The Too-Clever Fox by Leigh Bardugo

Doesn't it look amazing? Sigh. I adore this cover. And I'm pretty sure I will adore this short story, since I have adored everything Leigh Bardugo have written so far. There is no summary of this so far, but I don't mind. I just know it will be amazing. I did love her other short story so much as well :) I cannot wait to read The Too-Clever Fox. <3 And I just love this cover so much! It's amazing. This short story will be out in May, and it will be available to read for free on Tor.com :) What do you think of the cover?

Review: The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry

I hadn't heard of this book before I noticed it on NetGalley today. When I read the summary I knew I had to read it right away, because it sounded pretty amazing. So I did start it right away. I'm glad I read the book, even though it wasn't that perfect for me, but it is a three star book, and I did enjoy reading it all :)

The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die is a fast read. Just over two hundred pages, and it is easy to get lost into. While I wish it had been longer, it didn't need to be, because everything got wrapped up at the ending. My review of this book won't be that long, because the book is so short, and I don't want to give anything away :D Since there is a lot of things to spoil in this book ;p

This is a book about a girl who wakes up on the floor of a cabin with no memory of who she is or why she's there. Which I really loved, because it's an interesting plot twist. She doesn't remember who she is or anything about herself before the cabin. But she knows other things, like what everything is and how to drive a car and other things like that. I approved of that :)

I really don't know how to talk about this book. Will be a few spoilers of the beginning, but that you can read about in the summary, to be honest. While she's lying there on the floor she hears a man tell another one to get rid of her. She's also noticing how much pain she's in. Her tooth is loose, and she's missing two fingernails. Shudders. That was pretty awful to read about, but I kind of loved it as well, because it's weird and unique. I won't say how it happens, but she manages to escape from the cabin.

After she's escaped there is a lot of things happening. Won't say what, either :D But yeah. There is a lot of action and mystery and lots of things that don't add up. I loved reading about it, because it was exciting and I did like it. I liked reading about the girl as well, because she is pretty sweet and amazing. I just had some trouble connecting to her, and to the writing. And I found the ending to go a bit too fast, and some bad guys talked too much about secret stuff. Other than that, I enjoyed it very much :)

While she's on the run from the men who want her dead, she meets this guy. And oh. Ty is an amazing character. He's really kind and sweet. I had some trouble getting the right feelings for him too, though, but I loved him, still. There is not much romance in this book. It does not focus on it. I liked that. But I also liked that there is a hint of a romance between them. Ty helps her a lot, and I loved that very much. And I enjoyed reading about his friend and roommate, James :) I liked him very much as well.

This book also focus a bit of science. I didn't understand it all, but I still enjoyed it, because most of it made sense. Plus, it was interesting to read about, and it made the other things make sense as well. I don't really want to say anything else about this book. There is a lot of bad guys. And some awful things happen. But mostly it's a book about the girl trying to figure out who she is while escaping from some bad men trying to kill her. It's an easy and sort of fun read. While I didn't love it, I liked it very much :)

I'm not a big fan of the cover. Well, it isn't that bad, and I will be getting a hardcover of this book in June, but yeah. It does fit with the book, though, and I like that very much :) Something I enjoyed in this book was the characters. While I didn't truly connect with them, I still loved reading about them, and I wanted to know what happened next with all of them. I like the ending of this book. I do want more, but there don't have to be. The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die is a different book. And it's good.

If you like a sort of mystery book with good characters and an interesting plot, then you should most definitely buy this book when it comes out in June :) Because although I had a few issues with it, it is still an awesome book, and I think most of you will love it. It has an interesting plot, and lovable characters. Thank you so much to Macmillan & NetGalley for the chance to read and review this early. <3
