Cover Reveal: Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Eee! I am SO excited about this book :D Beyond thrilled that Rainbow decided to write a sequel to Carry On. Oh my gosh. I loved that book, so very much. It gave me butterflies. Still the only book that has given me that. Okay, I have still only read it once, but I loved it so. And I can't wait to read it again, right before Wayward Son is out, eee. Wishing it was September already. I need this book in my life. And gosh. Look at that cover! AHH! IT IS SO STUNNING. Simon and Baz looks incredible. I love it so. And it fits so well with the paperback cover for Carry On. I adore them both. Just. Honestly. This book truly looks beyond incredible. And I cannot wait to read it. Eee. But gosh. It will have been four years since I read Carry On when I finally re-read it this fall. What even. I cannot wait :D What do you think of this beautiful cover? :)

The story is supposed to be over.

Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after…

So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?

What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light…

That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West.

They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place…

With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has written a book for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And a book for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It’s another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter.

Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over – but your life has just begun.

In My Mailbox #386

For real. Another week gone by. Still no baby boy nephew born, but due day not until Thursday, so still time :) Cannot wait to see him. I managed to read two books this week, and still have so much to read, but so little energy. Feeling pretty crappy right now, health sucks. But trying to deal with it. But yeah. It's hard to catch up on things, hard to read, hard to do anything. Still. I'm trying. Slowly getting things done. But gosh, it would mean everything to me if any of you would leave me comments. I never get comments lately, other than spam. It is pretty heartbreaking. As I still have the same amount of views. Sigh. Makes me sad. Still, I'm here, blogging, and always will, as I do it for me :) But yeah. Would mean so so much to me to get comments too. A few new posts this week :) I shared the cover for The Magnolia Sword. <3 I posted my review of Song of the Crimson Flower :D This week I'm waiting on The Guinevere Deception :) And shared my review of To Best the Boys. Ack. Also got a bit of lovely mail this week, eee, which I love.

To Best the Boys. Such a pretty cover, ahh. But sadly did not like this much at all. Which hurts my heart.
Scorch Dragons. This one looks so lovely :D And I liked the first book a lot. Cannot wait to read this one.
Furyborn. Eee! Stunning new paperback editions that is coming out next week :D So so precious. Love.
Defiance. AHH! Thank you Alexa for trading with me :D Oh my gosh. I am SO happy to own this one :D
Yoshi. Eee. I had to get this game, haha. And have been playing it a little. It is pretty adorable and good.

Review: To Best the Boys by Mary Weber

I was so sure that I would love this book. As I adore this author, and have been waiting for this one for so long. Cover is beautiful. And the summary was exciting too. So I felt sure this book would be for me. But oh, how wrong I was. I have ended up giving it two stars. And I sadly don't have many positive things to say about it.

I feel so sad that I was so disappointed by this book. It was truly not a book for me. It annoyed me from start to finish. Was mostly because of the writing, which I never got used to. Was so messy. And it was filled with words I have never ever seen before, words that did not fit in, at least not in ways I could see. Was distracting.

I do not know how much I feel like sharing about this book. Not very much. And sadly not many positive things at all. Two stars, because I did not hate it. But I did not like it either. Honestly, this whole book was a struggle to read. I wanted to love it. So much. And I tried. But it did not get better. The writing never improved. The story was messy. The book was also too short. It was only three hundred pages, with barely anything happening at all. The labyrinth part was only one fourth of this book. What. I was expecting it to be so much more in this book. More scary, more challenging. Instead it happened in a few hours. It was boring, to be completely honest. First there was a whole day before the maze, which truly lasted forever, and was all kinds of boring. Sigh.

This book tells the story of Rhen. She lives in a world where girls are supposed to be wives and the boys go to school and take care of the family that way. This could have been interesting to read about, but I felt like it was not done well enough. It wasn't exciting enough, not important enough. I did not feel at all that Rhen wanted to change things. All she wanted was for her mom to not die. This was not a book about a girl wanting to change the world of men deciding everything. Which I had thought that it would be about.

I sort of liked Rhen. At times. I simply did not feel like she had any personality at all. The book begins with her robbing a dead body of blood, making it explode. Which was just gross. It spends more than a third of this book just explaining her daily life. Including the boy that wants to court her, whom is actually a creep. Of course. And the quiet boy, Lute, that she has been secretly in love with for years. Whom now seems to like her too, and is acting very jealous yet she does not see it. There was some unnecessary drama. Ugh.

We learn a lot about Rhen. Except not really, as I never felt like I truly knew or understood her. I did not connect with her. I did not feel anything for her. Her family seemed sweet, I simply did not care. Her best friend was her cousin, Seleni. I did enjoy their strong friendship. And I liked this girl too, and the boy she was in love with. He was pretty much so adorable. But that was also pretty much all that I liked about this book. There were moments that I enjoyed reading, which I was pleased about, but they were way too few.

I do not know what to say about this book. And so I will not say that much about it. I thought it would be all about the maze and the competition. It wasn't. It was more about silly boys and drama between them and the main girl only wanting to save her mother. It ended way too fast, with too many open endings. I felt like this book should have been so much more. Sigh. It was disappointing to me. I wanted more from it all. I wanted more excitement. I wanted more story, more plot. More romance, more characters. More.

This book was kind of a mess. It kept trying to be everything at once, and failed at all of it. At least for me. There were deadly sirens, deadly ghosts. Magic mentioned that no one had. A deadly virus that had the most silly reason for being. A supposedly scary maze that lasted for about one fourth of the book. So very disappointing. A romance that could have been good, but was not done well enough. For me, this whole book felt ordinary. When I had been expecting something truly unique. It could have been so much more.

And because of that, I did not like this book very much. I had so many issues with it. I wanted to love it the most. But it was simply impossible. I adore Mary. I really do. But this book of hers was not for me. At all. And I do suppose many will love it, though I do not really understand why. For me, this book was too little. Too little of everything. To Best the Boys had the chance to be amazing. But for my part, it failed. It do look all kinds of gorgeous, though. But yes. I'm left feeling so disappointed in this, which is the worst.

Waiting on Wednesday #389

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Goodreads Description:

From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes a new fantasy series reimagining the Arthurian legend, set in the magical world of Camelot.

There was nothing in the world as magical and terrifying as a girl.

Princess Guinevere has come to Camelot to wed a stranger: the charismatic King Arthur. With magic clawing at the kingdom's borders, the great wizard Merlin conjured a solution--send in Guinevere to be Arthur's wife . . . and his protector from those who want to see the young king's idyllic city fail. The catch? Guinevere's real name--and her true identity--is a secret. She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot.

To keep Arthur safe, Guinevere must navigate a court in which the old--including Arthur's own family--demand things continue as they have been, and the new--those drawn by the dream of Camelot--fight for a better way to live. And always, in the green hearts of forests and the black depths of lakes, magic lies in wait to reclaim the land. Arthur's knights believe they are strong enough to face any threat, but Guinevere knows it will take more than swords to keep Camelot free.

Deadly jousts, duplicitous knights, and forbidden romances are nothing compared to the greatest threat of all: the girl with the long black hair, riding on horseback through the dark woods toward Arthur. Because when your whole existence is a lie, how can you trust even yourself?


Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: November 5th 2019 by Delacorte Press
Pre-Order here and here

I am so curious about this book. I pretty much adore Kiersten and I cannot wait to read this new book by her :D It sounds all kinds of interesting and exciting. A bit complicated, but seems so good too. I cannot wait to get to know Guinevere. She sounds like the best already. Simply cannot wait for this gorgeous :D
What are you waiting for on this deceptive Wednesday?

Review: Song of the Crimson Flower by Julie C. Dao

This was my first book by this author. And it will not be my last. I must be honest and say that this would normally not have been a book for me. But when I saw it on Edelweiss I had to read the summary. And I got the need to read it right away. So glad I was able to do so. Because this book was beyond adorable and cute.

Giving it four stars, as it was almost perfect for me. I only wish it had been a little bit more. A little longer. A bit more details about things. But oh my gosh how I liked this book. The story was truly exciting and interesting. The characters were truly adorable. The romance killed me. I could not help but love every moment of it.

I wanted to read this book because of how painful the summary makes it sound. Painful, but hopeful too, with her regretting her actions. And I am so happy that I decided to get this book. And read it right away. Because, yes, the beginning was painful. But then it became fun and cute and simply such an amazing story. The book is short and easy to read. The writing was beautiful. I know there were a lot of details about the two other book set in this world, and full of spoilers for them both, but I do not mind that. It made me want to read them as well. Though I fear they will be more painful than this one, haha. I so do not know how I will write this review of mine. All I have in my thoughts right now is love. Love for Bao and Lan and this gorgeous setting as well.

This book tells the story of Bao and Lan. It is told from both point of views, and I loved that. Because they both have a lot to say and it was needed to be in both heads. And I also pretty much loved them both to pieces from the very beginning. Lan is a rich girl living with her parents and her older brothers. She has been in love with a boy named Tam for ages, as their marriage have been planned since they were little. At least, she thinks they are in love. He has been cold towards her, and she is still waiting for a wedding.

Then there is Bao. A poor orphan boy who has no one that loves him. He have been alone for so many years. And getting to know his life was pretty heartbreaking. Yet so good too. I could not help but love this boy to pieces. He have been in love with Lan for years now. But too shy to speak much to her. Except for the past two weeks he have been playing the flute for her in the river outside of her house at night to her. Sharing with music how he loves her. Except she is positive that it is Tam on the river, playing for her. Oh.

And when Bao finally works up enough courage to tell her the truth, that Tam's parents have been paying him to make it seem like Tam still wants to marry her, when he does not, it does not go well at all. Lan is heartbroken. And she sadly takes it all out on Bao. He is finally confessing his feelings for her. And she hits him and yells at him and it being beyond cruel. But she sees this, sees it on his face, how much she is hurting him. But it is too late by then. But at least now she finally knows the whole truth about Tam too.

Which is how this book begins. Okay, it took almost a hundred pages, all of that. But it was so interesting. And I loved getting to know them both so very much. Lan feels guilty after how she treated Bao, she want to make up for it. But he has left, never to return. Because of how much she hurt him, and since he truly has no one now. But that does not go well for him, as he ends up meeting the river witch. And she curses him. Which must be undone in two weeks, or he will be trapped in his flute forever, where is soul is now.

I will not go into more details than that, just that it was all kinds of exciting and rude. Lan ends up finding the flute with Bao trapped inside, as she is the only person that Bao loves. And so she is the one that can help him have a true form until the curse can be broken. And so they set out on a journey together. With her willing to help him, to make up for how she treated him. He speaks so rudely to her at times, but she answers him, and he explains better, and I loved their sort of banter so very much. It was so well written.

There is so much going on in this book. Despite how short it was. And I couldn't help but treasure every moment that Bao and Lan spent together. He loved her so much. And she ruined his heart. Yet he is now growing to care for her again, with the time they are spending together now. And it was the cutest thing to read about. Their growing friendship was too cute. Truly written well. And I loved the world this story was set in. I loved the different customs and everything else. Mostly I simply loved Bao and Lan, though. Sigh.

I would say that this book was a love story. The love story between a rich girl and a poor boy. The story of how she was so cruel to him and how he ended up being cursed because of this. Starting their two weeks long journey to save him. With them slowly starting to care more for each other. With her seeing him truly, finally. And I loved every single moment of it. I mean, sure, there were other parts to this story too. Some side characters that were interesting as well. But honestly. This was a love story. And it was done so well.

Song of the Crimson Flower was everything I needed it to be and more. It was adorable and fun and so heartbreaking too. I loved almost every second of it. The characters were incredibly well done. And the romance pretty much killed me. The ending was great, though I wish it had been longer. This book was almost perfect for me. And it was just what I needed. Can't wait to own it when it comes out in November and read it again. Thank you to the publisher for my eARC via Edelweiss. So happy I could read it early.

CHINA, 484 A.D.

A Warrior in Disguise
All her life, Mulan has trained for one purpose: to win the duel that every generation in her family must fight. If she prevails, she can reunite a pair of priceless heirloom swords separated decades earlier, and avenge her father, who was paralyzed in his own duel.

Then a messenger from the Emperor arrives, demanding that all families send one soldier to fight the Rouran invaders in the north. Mulan's father cannot go. Her brother is just a child. So she ties up her hair, takes up her sword, and joins the army as a man.

A War for a Dynasty
Thanks to her martial arts skills, Mulan is chosen for an elite team under the command of the princeling--the royal duke's son, who is also the handsomest man she's ever seen. But the princeling has secrets of his own, which explode into Mulan's life and shake up everything she knows. As they cross the Great Wall to face the enemy beyond, Mulan and the princeling must find a way to unwind their past, unmask a traitor, and uncover the plans for the Rouran invasion . . . before it's too late.

Inspired by wuxia martial-arts dramas as well as the centuries-old ballad of Mulan, The Magnolia Sword is perfect for fans of Renee Ahdieh, Marie Lu, or Kristin Cashore--a thrilling, romantic, and sharp-edged novel that lives up to its beloved heroine.

Review: The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda

Where do I even begin with this one? It was everything I wanted it to be and I enjoyed it the very most. Have loved every book by Megan. And I am thrilled that I loved this one too. But now I must wait even longer for a new book by her, and I am not sure how I will survive, lol. She writes such exciting and suspenseful books.

I will try my best to write down everything that I loved about this book. Though it will be hard, because all I have in my brain right now is that I loved it so. The writing was incredible, as always. I had no trouble connecting to these characters. Contemporary is not really for me, but I always love these books by Megan. Sigh.

This is an adult book, which I also almost never read, but Megan have now written three amazing ones that I have all loved. What I love the most is that her characters are about the same age as me. In this one the main girl is twenty five years old, which is the same as me. And I feel all kinds of young, haha, so it was easy to connect with this main character too. I'm giving this book four stars, as something very small about the past bothered me. But besides that, I very much loved this book. I could not stop reading it. And I will be thinking about this for a long time, I am sure of it. Because it was all kinds of exciting and thrilling. Yet so slow at times too. It was probably mostly a character driven book, with secrets being revealed, and I loved it a whole lot. So good.

This book tells the story of Avery. She have lived in the small town of Littleport her whole life. When she was fourteen her parents died in a car crash. And when she was eighteen her grandmother died too, the last of her family, leaving her all alone. A few months after that she met Sadie for the first time. And they clicked together right away, becoming best of friends. But only for the summer, as Sadie was only there in her family's summer house during the holiday. But they spent every summer together for about six years.

Until the summer that Sadie died. It was ruled a suicide, and Avery believed in that for almost a year. Until she started looking more. Learning more about what had really happened that night, the night Sadie was found dead in the water. There was a party. Sadie never showed up. But the killer might have been there, if Sadie was murdered and did not kill herself. That is pretty much all I will say about this plot. It is about Avery trying to figure out what happened to Sadie. About her learning things about everyone around her.

There is so much going on in this book. We get to know Avery, piece by piece. There is much she keeps hidden. And I loved that. I loved all the secrets and the surprises. Some of them ruined my heart, though. Especially learning about Connor, her childhood friend and first boyfriend. It ended too soon, because of the pain she was going through after her grandmother died. And gosh. Learning things about her and him ruined my heart. Some things were too painful, too rude, but there were some happy memories too. Sigh.

And though this was not a romance book, sadly, haha, there were hints of a romance at times. I shipped Avery and Connor so very much. They were complicated. Yet they would fit together so well. I wish there had been more focus on it, that it had been more happy. But I was also pleased with what was included in this book. And I enjoyed everything so very much. This is Avery's story. And she has a whole lot to share. We learn many secrets about her and Sadie, how they may have been fighting weeks before Sadie died.

At times it was impossible to know who the murder had been, if she had been murdered at all. There was so much to learn about everyone. There was Sadie's brother, Parker, their parents. They all had secrets. And they all played a part in this story. I did not like Parker much at all, honestly. Hmph. Avery had sort of wanted him ever since she first met him, and Sadie told her don't. But they have not been together. That made me happy, haha. He was an interesting character to get to know, though. Fully complicated as well.

But I must admit to loving getting to know Connor the most. Who he had been to Avery, before. And who he was to her now. I so wish they had spent more time together. Yet simply just loved learning about their past. They were perfect together, yet also not, because he had not fully seen all the pain she was in those years back. She hurt him, badly. But he hurt her too. And that is another reason for why they would have been so good together. Sigh. But this book was not about that. It was about a murder, almost a year back.

And gosh. Every single thing that came to light about the death of Sadie hurt my heart a little. There are secrets being learned pretty often, most of them bad. All of them exciting. I fully loved reading about the friendship that Avery and Sadie had before. They were pretty much amazing together. A bit destructive, perhaps, but also perfect for each other. We learn so much about this place they live in too. And it was beyond interesting, honestly. I always wanted to know more about this town and the people living there.

I simply have no other words for this book. It have not been easy writing this review. Since all I can think about is how I loved this book. And how you all need to read it too, when it comes out this summer. It was such a great read. And I am so thrilled that I got to read it right now. I know that I will read this book again one day, and that is the best feeling. While a few small things bothered me, I still loved everything. I loved Avery a whole lot. She was so fierce and complicated and loving and I adored her to pieces, to be honest.

The Last House Guest was such a thrilling mystery. Exciting and filled with suspense. I so loved working everything out. Most of the surprises and secrets were surprises for me too, and I loved that. I adored the main character and I loved learning more about her. Huge thank you to the publisher, Simon & Schuster, for approving my request to read this book early via Edelweiss. I had to start it right away, and I'm so glad I did so. This book was incredible. And I cannot wait to own the finished copy of it too. You must read this.

Waiting on Wednesday #388

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

SHADOW & FLAME (Rime Chronicles #2)  

Goodreads Description:

From acclaimed author Mindee Arnett comes the thrilling conclusion of the stunningly epic, action-packed fantasy adventure that’s been called “a page-turning blend of monsters, magic, and romance” by Susan Dennard, the New York Times bestselling author of Truthwitch.

They call her the Wilder Queen. It’s a title given to Kate Brighton for her role in the war between the wilder rebellion and the Rimish empire. It’s a title that was hard earned: Kate may have saved her people, but many were lost in the conflict, immortalized in the tattoos of fire that grace her arms.

And it’s a title that Kate never wanted. The rebellion may have made a home for themselves in a country that wants to cast them out, but the peace will never be safe while Edwin, the illegitimate king of Rime, sits upon its throne. And for that, the Wilder Queen must keep hers.

Now war is brewing once again. Kate and her allies receive word of a threat to their ambassador in the Rimish capital; meanwhile, across the channel in Seva, an army is being assembled to conquer Rime—and a prisoner slave named Clash may hold the key to ending the conflict once and for all.

As enemies close in on Kate and Clash from all sides, they must choose where their loyalties lie—with their people, with their loved ones, or with themselves.

The epic story that began with Onyx & Ivory comes to a stunning conclusion as acclaimed author Mindee Arnett throws readers into a beautiful, terrifying world poised on a razor’s edge in its struggle for survival.

Hardcover, 496 pages
Expected publication: June 4th 2019 by Balzer + Bray

Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

It's been a long time since I last read a book this bad. It is a one star for me. My review will not be positive at all. And there will be spoilers. This is not a book that I feel anyone should read. Myself included. I very much regret reading it. But I did it. Got through it. I had to. Because my copy was a print ARC that I had traded for.

And now I wish to trade it away. Far away. My review will be full of my thoughts about this book. Others will feel differently about it. But I'm not sharing what others think about this book. Sharing my feelings. And my feelings are nowhere near happy. This book was the worst I have read in a long time. Have the most to share.

There was so very much wrong with this book that I honestly do not know where to begin. All of it hurt my head. All of it made me want to throw the book far away. But I stuck to it. I had hope that maybe it could end up getting a little bit better. But it never did. It got worse and worse. And so I can't help but rate it one star. And the biggest reason for it was the writing. I could not stand it. Not for one second. I am not sure I have ever read writing this bad. I do not even know how to describe it right, but my god, it was horrible. Felt like I was reading a very badly written journal, with the main girl telling us point by point how she had spent her day. It wasn't pretty. Was impossible to connect to the characters. Impossible to get lost in the book since the writing was truly bad.

There was also info dump on info dump. All the time. It was beyond annoying. I did not care for any of it. I mean, this was a standalone. And fast to read too. Why did we need to know all the stupid details about the boring world? It could have been done better, I suppose. The world was sort of interesting. But it was not good. The writing completely sucked. For real. And that was not even the only problem with this book. The characters were the worst too. No feeling. No drive. No reason. Just there, and so very badly written.

Most of the book is told from the point of view of Keralie. And then a few chapters from the point of views of the four queens. And my god. How I hated every single character in this book. They were not done well at all. They all lacked something. Humanity, I suppose. They were not even evil or whatever. Just beyond boring. Keralie was supposed to be such a good thief. I did not see that at all. I saw a girl playing at being good. A girl throwing her family away because she was being beyond stupid. The reason was badly done.

And of course she had left her family behind to live with this stupid criminal mastermind boy that called her darlin' every time he saw her. Eye roll forever. He was named Mackiel. And I could not stand him for one minute. They had been best friends for seven years. And suddenly he betrays her. And she is all, oh no, he made me, what am I gonna do. I will never trust another person again. Oh, look, a handsome boy, I will trust him tomorrow. God. I hated this girl. Well, not really, as it was impossible to feel anything at all.

Then there were the queens. Well. I do suppose I must share some spoilery things that happen. Keralie steals some memory chips from her boss, that she puts in her mouth to see the memories. And she sees all four queens die. Except we find out a little later that they are not dead yet, and she saw the plans for killing them. But does she do anything about it? No. Does she try to save the queens? No. Not until it is too late, and all of them are dead again. Haha. She tries to find the assassin. It was laughably bad. Sigh.

She spends these few days with a boy from a different sector in this world. The land is divided into four places, where humans behave different ways, one queen for each place. Varin is from a different sector than Keralie. And so he is all cold and no emotions. Except not really, for he is the one person of his kind that feels things. Sigh. He was there for a reason, but gosh, I did not care for him one bit. Suddenly they are so good friends and then they are kissing while the queens are dying and just. Yuck. It was not good.

There is so much I wish to share about this book. I will try to control myself. Ha. So far that is not going well. But my god. I hated this book. And I feel like that is probably all I can say. The writing was truly so incredibly bad that I die a little just thinking about it. The characters were so boring and so stupid beyond words. The villain was not interesting at all. The girl was trying to be all bad and fierce and whatever. She failed beyond words. The plot was trying to be exciting and scary. It failed. I couldn't stand this book. Ugh.

I felt like this book was trying to be something it was not. That it was trying to be the Three Dark Crowns series. It failed beyond words. It tried to be exciting and mysterious and suspenseful. It failed more than I can say. It even tried being romantic. Haha. It failed most at that. Honestly, this whole book was an epic fail. It was trying so hard to be good. But it was not. Not even a moment of this book was good. It makes me sad to say it, but say it I must. I hated this book. And I will try my hardest to never think of this again.

I will be honest and say that I do not think anyone should read this book. I would not recommend this for anyone. Because the writing was actually that bad. And I will admit to judging those that actually liked this book. So sorry, haha. But I can't understand it at all. Four Dead Queens killed me with how incredibly bad it was. My review have been negative. And I do not regret it for one second. I hated this book. And being honest about it was a must. But have nothing against the author. I'm sure she's lovely. Her book was not.

I'm going to love it so much, I'm sure of it :D Simply wishing I could read it right away. <3 I cannot wait to meet Tova. She sounds beyond incredible already.

I just need this book in my life already. Will love it so. And need it so badly. And oh my god. Look at this cover. I die a little every time I see it. So perfect. So fierce and lovely.

And I simply cannot wait to read more books by her. What do you think of this cover? Is it not just so very perfect? Love it the very most :D

The new gut-wrenching epic from the New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep.

For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.

For the first time in generations, the leaders of the Svell are divided. Should they maintain peace or go to war with the allied clans to protect their newfound power? And when their chieftain looks to Tova to cast the stones, she sets into motion a series of events that will not only change the landscape of the mainland forever but will give her something she believed she could never have again—a home.

Waiting on Wednesday #387

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Goodreads Description:

From #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Cassandra Clare comes the first novel in a brand-new trilogy where evil hides in plain sight and the only thing more dangerous than fighting demons is falling in love. Chain of Gold is a Shadowhunters novel.

Cordelia Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, a warrior trained since childhood to battle demons. When her father is accused of a terrible crime, she and her brother travel to Edwardian London in hopes of preventing the family’s ruin. Cordelia’s mother wants to marry her off, but Cordelia is determined to be a hero rather than a bride. Soon Cordelia encounters childhood friends James and Lucie Herondale and is drawn into their world of glittering ballrooms, secret assignations, and supernatural salons, where vampires and warlocks mingle with mermaids and magicians. All the while, she must hide her secret love for James, who is sworn to marry someone else.

But Cordelia’s new life is blown apart when a shocking series of demon attacks devastate London. These monsters are nothing like those Shadowhunters have fought before—these demons walk in daylight, strike down the unwary with incurable poison, and seem impossible to kill. London is immediately quarantined. Trapped in the city, Cordelia and her friends discover that their own connection to an dark legacy has gifted them with incredible powers — and force a brutal choice that will reveal the true cruel price of being a hero.

Hardcover, 544 pages
Expected publication: November 19th 2019 by Margaret K. McElderry Books

Review: The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala

I had hoped that I would end up loving this book the most. That was not the case. At all. Oh. I was expecting so much from this story. I wanted danger and action and epic romance. I got none of those things. This whole book was such a disappointment to me, and that just breaks my heart. I wanted it to be much more.

But it was not. At least, not for me. I'm sure others will love this book. But I did not. And I will be sharing all my reasons for not loving this book, and those reasons might end up being many, and might be a little bit spoilery too. I give this book two stars. Because it had potential to be amazing. But it never got there.

There is so much I wish to share about this book. And figuring out how to put my words down will not be an easy thing, sadly. Because my mind is kind of a mess. I struggled through almost five hundred pages to finish this. I would have stopped reading, except it was a print ARC that I had traded for, and I wanted to give it a chance, hoping it would get better. It did not. Sigh. So yes. This book was almost five hundred pages. And yet I feel like I have very little to talk about in this review of mine. Because the plot was barely there. Pretty much nothing happened. No progress. No excitement. I am beyond disappointed in this story. I felt like it could have been so much more than it was. I do feel sorry for being so negative, but really must be honest too.

Because there were a few parts of this book that I actually liked a whole lot. Which is why it is a two star for me and not less. The world was incredible. The story of this place created was exciting. The fact that the land was dying and why and how it could be fixed was interesting. And I wanted to know more about it all. But I never got that. I never got more, and what I did get was way too little. And I am so upset about it. As this world building could have been so great, if only there had been more of it. Ugh. I needed more.

Instead the whole book is about two characters. Kunal and Esha. Told from both their point of views. I so wish I could say that I loved the writing. But I did not. It annoyed me from start to finish. I did not connect with either of the characters, and that just hurts. Sigh. I wanted to love them. But I did not. They truly did nothing that would make me love them, to be honest. I thought they would both be fierce and deadly and beyond awesome to read about. Neither of them were. Haha. They were both way too soft for me. What.

Which is something I pretty much never say, haha. I thought they would be broken and dangerous and a little soft deep inside. Instead they were pretty much not deadly at all and beyond soft, all on the outside as well. It bothered me. It made me not care for either of them. They were supposed to be broken. But I did not feel that they were. It was not shown what had happened to either of them. There was no tragic back story to read about. A supposed huge need for revenge, yet never shown why she wanted it. Sigh.

This book fell completely flat for me. And I am so unsure how to completely write down my feelings about everything. I wanted it to be so much more than it was. I wanted the plot to be exciting and big and full of danger. Instead I got two teenagers pretty much chasing each other and falling in love and always always thinking about how they had both changed for each other, despite just meeting. Ugh. It was not sweet, at least not to me. I did not feel any kind of spark towards them. No romantic tension. That made me so sad.

Not that there was a huge romance in this story. Because there was not. Kunal and Esha do have a little romance. But it was not epic and cute. I found it boring, to be honest. Why did he care so much for her? Ugh. And then, of course, they knew each other as children for a few short weeks. So now they must be in love. Yeah. No. Sorry, it was not written well enough. Not for me. I so wish I could say that I loved it all. I wish I could say that this book was incredible. But it really truly was not. I had to force myself to finish it.

But yes. There were parts of it that I liked. I liked the world, but it was too little of it. I have not mentioned the plot much, but yeah. Esha is framed for killing Kunal's uncle, the general. And so he is now hunting her, to get justice for the murder. He is a soldier, have been for ten years, have killed a lot. Yet now he is all mushy and soft and is seeing the world so fully differently than ten minutes ago. What even. It made no sense to me, honestly. He should have been way darker. Ugh. I feel a little cheated, to be fully honest.

And I sadly did not care for Esha either. We only learn a little about her, and what we do learn is repeated through the whole book. It grew beyond tiring. And then near the end of this there were almost hints of a possible love triangle maybe happening. Of her kind of feeling things for another boy. Yeah. No. So gross. Not for me. Esha was a rebel spy. Killing people. The Viper. So incredibly dangerous. Hahaha. Yeah. No. That was not true either. She was too soft. I never got to see her be really fierce at all. Fully disappointed.

There is so much I still wish to share about this book. Probably even more that I have forgotten about that I wish to share, haha. But I'll stop now. Because I have already written way too much. And have not really said anything about the plot. But I won't bother to. Because this book was simply not good. And it is going to be a trilogy. What. I would, sadly, not read more books about these characters. It would fully bore me to death. I wanted much more from this book. Parts of it were interesting for me. But too little, too late, sadly.

The Tiger at Midnight was everything I did not want in a book. And it ended up disappointing me the very most. And it is breaking my heart a little that I had to write this mostly negative review. Oh. But I had to. It do feel good to have shared all my honest thoughts about it. And I know some will want to read this book because of my review, which is great. As I know others will love this story. But I did not. I found the world and diversity to be written really well, though. But that, sadly, was all that was good about this story. Sigh.

News: The Secret Commonwealth by Philip Pullman

Eee! There is finally an official release date for the second The Book of Dust book by Philip Pullman :D And oh my gosh. I'm SO excited. His Dark Materials is my most favorite trilogy. I loved La Belle Sauvage a whole lot too. And The Secret Commonwealth is going to be aaamazing. Probably going to ruin me as well, of course, but my gosh, I cannot wait. Lyra will be twenty years old in this book. And I am so beyond nervous. But so excited and soso happy and I need it in my life. The book will be out on October 3rd, this year :D EEE! No cover yet, but I am sure it will be gorgeous. Cannot wait to see it. I just. Gosh. I so worry about this book. Lyra will be twenty years old. Seven years since she and Will were parted. Does she still love him the same? Oh, she better, haha. <3 Will there be hints of them getting to be together again? Will she ruin the love by seeing someone else instead? Ahh. I'm a nervous wreck about it, lol. But so excited. And I know I will love this book. October cannot get here fast enough. Are you excited for this one too? :D

Return to the parallel world of His Dark Materials in the second volume of Philip Pullman's new bestselling masterwork The Book of Dust, and discover what comes next for Lyra, "one of fantasy's most indelible characters." (The New York Times Magazine)

Lyra Silvertongue's adventures in the North are long over--the windows between the many worlds have been sealed, and her beloved Will is lost to her. She does still have the alethiometer: the truth-telling device given to her by the master of Jordan College, which guided her journey.

Lyra doesn't know the full story of the alethiometer, though. Or the role that young Malcolm Polstead played in bringing both the instrument and baby Lyra to Jordan. She's now a twenty-year-old undergraduate at St. Sophia's College. To her, Malcolm is Dr. Polstead, an overly solicitous professor she would prefer to avoid.

But intrigue is swirling around Lyra once more. Her daemon Pantalaimon is witness to a brutal murder, and the dying man entrusts them with secrets that carry echoes from their past. They learn of a city haunted by daemons, of a desert said to hold the secret of Dust.

Powerful forces are about to throw Lyra and Malcolm together once again. And the dangers they face will challenge everything they thought they knew about the world, and about themselves.

In My Mailbox #383

Hi. My heart is dying a little. I got the most perfect books in the mail this week, and ahh. I am so happy, eee :D It is perfect. <3 Feeling so thankful and grateful at the moment. And so lucky. Sigh. I haven't done much this week, but I have taken a lot of bookish pictures for instagram, haha :) Which I love. I had totally planned on reading more this week. That did not happen. Oops. Simply have had no energy at all or time. Sigh. And did not really want to read anything after Kingsbane, haha. But. I did manage to read one book, so yay for that. So far behind on reading, though.

Review: Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

I knew I wanted to read this book when I saw the stunning cover. And read the amazing summary for it too. Finally had the chance to read it, and I'm not disappointed. This book ended up being a whole lot of beautiful. I enjoyed it very much. It was not perfect to me, so giving it four stars, but gosh, how good this was even so.

I will say that this book was super slow. And there was not really much happening most of the time, not until nearer to the ending. Though it was slow, it was never boring. I was always interested in knowing what would happen next. And I loved that. The writing was also pretty much perfect, and I had no issue connecting to it.

Although I will also say that for me, this book was a little hard to read at times. Because even though the writing was beautiful, it was also full of things that I did not know. A whole lot of Chinese customs and such. And I loved reading about that beyond words. It was stunning and felt real. And written so well. But yes. It was also a whole lot of complicated words and descriptions that I had trouble understanding, as I don't know that much about Chinese traditions and such. But that is also a reason for why I liked Descendant of the Crane so much. Because of Chinese inspiration and such. With a bunch of fantasy added, and felt historical as well, which I always enjoy. Gosh, my feelings for this book are complicated. As some things hurt my heart a lot. Yet liked it so.

This book tells the story of Princess Hesina. Her father just died, and as his oldest child, she is to become queen of their kingdom. Which is something she does not really want, but will still do, since it is needed of her. And because of when she is made queen, she will be able to open up a trial to find out who killed her father. Though she seems to be the only one that thinks he was murdered. Gosh, this was an interesting story. Figuring out who did it. And why. Many twists and surprises. Most of them bad, haha. I liked it tons.

Hesina was a bit too trusting of everyone. Especially those she should not have trusted at all. It broke my heart a little. Yet I could not help but love this girl. I wish we got to know more about her, though. But what there was to know was amazing. And I grew to care for this precious girl a whole lot. She was fierce and brave and loving. A bit hidden away at times, but always true to herself. I liked getting to know her more. And I very much enjoyed reading about everything she did. All the new people  she met. Just, everything.

Especially Akira. Whom was the love interest in this book. Except that there was barely any romance at all, and I would have so loved for there to be more. But the book was good even without that, haha. And there was a little romance still. And it was so stunning. Because Akira was such an amazing boy to get to know. Hesina finds him in prison. And she needs him to represent her in court, to find the murderer of her father. And so they slowly become friends. And I liked that a whole lot, reading about them together. Sigh.

Especially loved just getting to know Akira. He had such a tragic back story. Bit scary, a bit heartbreaking. And I loved him so. He was fierce and just awesome. And he and Hesina fit together well. Though, yes, I wish there had been more kissing, and a lot sooner, haha. But they were great as friends too. Then there was all of Hesina's siblings. She has one true brother, a year younger. And their relationship was so very strained. And that broke my heart. Because he was so awesome and I wanted them happy together. Aw.

She also has a half brother, whom she does not seem to like at all. Which also hurt my heart, ha, since he was pretty much all adorable and awkward. I did like that they spent some time together, though, and that she was feeling better about him by the end. I hope. Then she also had two adoptive siblings, twins. Lilian was so sweet and devious and I adored her. Caiyan was a little different. Kind and always there. But oh, I was a little bit unsure about him. Yet he was pretty much amazing too. How rude, haha. I liked them both.

This was a book about Hesina learning to be a queen, trying to help her people, trying to prevent a war. Most of this book takes place in the castle. There was not a lot of action happening at all. But I did not mind one bit. Because I loved reading about these characters and getting to know them. I loved all the mystery of the murder of the king. And all of the secrets that came out. So many of them surprising and different. I loved it. And he magic in this book was so good too. Not a lot of it, but some, and written well.

Though also heartbreaking, considering every person that had magic in this land was hunted down and killed. Which killed my heart a little. And the heart of Hesina too. Reading about the sooths was so very interesting and sad and I enjoyed it a lot. I wish there had been more about it, though. I especially wish that there was a second book. Sigh. I wanted to know more. But I also loved what I did learn. It was not perfect, but was so exciting at times. Slow, but good. I liked learning about this world that Hesina lived in.

We get to know Hesina a bunch in this book. And I adored her the most. Will not mention too much about what the plot is about, but it is pretty much about Hesina being queen. And working on solving the murder of her father. And her spending time with her siblings. And learning new things about the world she lives in. And all of it was exciting and fun to read about. And sad too, at times. I sadly did not completely fall in love with this book, but I loved parts of it very much. And I am so very happy about that. Was pretty great.

The ending was all kinds of rude and good. I am so unsure how to feel about it all. It was full of secrets revealed. And it was also left pretty open. Like only half of the story. And I have read that this story is a standalone. That the author might write companion books, with other point of views. And that breaks my heart a little. Because this story was not finished. And I very much wanted to know more about them all, and what happens next. Sigh. But even so. The ending was pretty amazing. Heartbreaking. But so good.

You all need to read this book too. I think you will love it. Huge thank you to the publisher, Albert Whitman & Company, for accepting my request to read and review this book early via Edelweiss. I am so glad I got to read it, despite taking so long to finally start it. I also have a hardcover of it pre-ordered, and I can't wait to get it. Descendant of the Crane was all kinds of stunning. It was slow, but beautiful. Filled with amazing characters that I adored getting to know. Full of magic and secrets and heartbreak. I liked it so very much.

Waiting on Wednesday #386

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Goodreads Description:

The dreamers walk among us . . . and so do the dreamed. Those who dream cannot stop dreaming – they can only try to control it. Those who are dreamed cannot have their own lives – they will sleep forever if their dreamers die.

And then there are those who are drawn to the dreamers. To use them. To trap them. To kill them before their dreams destroy us all.

Ronan Lynch is a dreamer. He can pull both curiosities and catastrophes out of his dreams and into his compromised reality.

Jordan Hennessy is a thief. The closer she comes to the dream object she is after, the more inextricably she becomes tied to it.

Carmen Farooq-Lane is a hunter. Her brother was a dreamer . . . and a killer. She has seen what dreaming can do to a person. And she has seen the damage that dreamers can do. But that is nothing compared to the destruction that is about to be unleashed. . . .

Hardcover, 448 pages
Expected publication: November 5th 2019 by Scholastic Press
Pre-Order here and here

I mean, honestly. This book is going to be all kinds of amazing. And I cannot wait for it to come out. Eee. Maggie is the best. And another book about Ronan is going to be awesome. Waited ages for it, haha :) Okay, confession. I have not read the fourth Raven Boys book yet. WHAT! I know. I am the worst. But I need to re-read all three books before it, and I still have not had the time. Sigh. But I will get it done this year. Before this precious book is out, I will have read all four books. Hmph. And I am so very excited :)
What are you waiting for on this dreaming Wednesday?
