About –

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.


My Review 

I have to say I was a little nervous to read A Court of Thorns and Roses purely because I had seen so many good reviews and normally when a book is so hyped up, it really disappoints. I hadn’t read Throne of Glass or any of the books in that series so I didn’t know what to expect from Maas.

But, It was so easy to fall in love with A Court of Thorns and Roses! It was an insanely quick and easy book to read, despite being 432 pages. I read it in one sitting and the time flew right by!.img_20160519_201756

I am typically a character driven reader and it is no surprise that the strongest aspect of the novel for me was Feyre. Sarah really has a gift for creating these wonderfully awesome (in the old school sense of the word) perfectly flawed ladies. I loved Feyre’s character. I loved that she was prickly and reserved, hard hearted and cold in her turns.

Feyre has lived a hard life as the only source of income for her family in the long years since their fall from prosperity. When she essentially has to give up her freedom to save both her life and her family it is a pill bitterly swallowed and the reader feels it palpably.

I absolutely ADORED the faerie lore, politics, and history. Sarah J. Maas has created a freaking EPIC world and the fact that it tied into Beauty and the Beast just made it even better.

A Court of Thorns and Roses is a darkly glittering, magically twisted tale of faerie.  As with all things Sarah, each book in the series is bound to only get better and better. I am so eager to see where she will take this story. When all is said and done I place my faith that we will find Feyre victorious.

Ratings –

I’ll give this book 5/5 stars and Yes, it is a must read.

 

Book Review- The Heart Of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

Hello everyone, I am super happy this month and craving for more and more books after my reading slumps.But thanks to myself cause I have many pending books in my TBR list, So have to complete them first.Coming to the point-Let’s talk about Thr Heart Of Betrayal.

1516396_1717154901894371_127045733_n.jpg

About-

Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save Lia’s life, her erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komizar that she has the gift, and the Komizar’s interest in Lia is greater than anyone could have foreseen.

Meanwhile, nothing is straightforward: There’s Rafe, who lied to Lia but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom Lia always believed to be savages. Now that she lives among them, however, she realizes that may be far from the truth. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her sense of self, Lia must make powerful choices that will affect her country… and her own destiny.


 

My Review –

The heart of betrayal is the second book in “The Remnant Series”.The first book was ‘The kiss of deception’ which I absolutely loved.

In The Heart of Betrayal, Lia and Rafe are taken to Venda to live at the mercy of the Komizar. Lia has no allies in Venda, though she starts to build small alliances with unexpected citizens. There is something about Venda that is unlike anything Lia has experienced. Her gift changes and starts taken shape. Lia begins to see things in Venda that she has n seen before. All the while, Lia has drawn the Komizar’s interest, and not a good interest. Rafe lies his way into staying alive, with everyone believing that he is the Royal Emissary of the Dalbreck crown prince. With each passing day, it is clear that there are no rules to survival, and both must do what they can to have a chance at escaping.

I enjoyed the second book too maybe not as much as I did The Kiss Of Deception. I found it a little slow-paced for my own liking, majority of the book was written to explain the back story of the Vendans, which I really appreciated. I appreciated that the back story wasn’t compromised, but then again I’ve been craving for some action, but this craving wasn’t really satisfied not until the end part of the book, which made a lot of difference, I think I held my breath more than humanly possible because of that ending. It was intense and gripping, it sure made up for all the dragging parts of the book.

I also like the mysterious “gift” part of the series plot though. A lot of it revolves around Venda, curiously. And yet, I feel more lost, in terms of Lia’s gift, and its connection to Venda. Hopefully all will be explained in book three.

So until then, let’s all hold hands just to get through this whole ordeal of waiting for the third book.

Ratings –

I’ll give this book  4/5 stars.

“Confluence-a coming together by chance.. Together they become something greater, but it isn’t delicate or sweet. Like a raging river, a confluence can lead to something impossible to predict or control… Yet sometimes the coming together, the confluence of destinies, seemed not to be by chance at all.”

About The Book

One Life to One Dawn.

In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.

Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last. But something she never expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she’d imagined him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid’s life as retribution for the many lives he’s stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?


 

My Thoughts

I absolutely adored this book, it has  such a strong storyline , characters, twists and plots.It has everything to make you fall in love with it.

Renee Ahdieh is brilliant!!… I flipped through the pages so quickly. I felt so many emotions and even felt conflicted sometimes. I love it when a story does that.

The ones who says Revenge only results in sadness should definitely read it because revenge plays a very vital part in it.Cause of revenge they met and fell in love.The story begins with the hatred.Hatred for a monstrous king- Kalid whom Shahrzad married to take revenge of her best friend’s murder but she slowly she fell in love with him.But The real story begins now!.The truth about the king,The curse?.The betrayal.It just keep getting better.

Can’t wait to read the next one in series as it is already out.I’m so curious but I’ll have to wait a little.

  • Characters I Loved –

    I loved  almost all the characters but my favorite ones were Shahrzad(A really strong,fearless and lively girl), Jalal (in the beginning he’s a little annoying but you’ll love him at the end.) and Obviously Khalid.

    I’ll give this book  5/5 stars.It’s a must read.

The Ultimate Game of Thrones BOOK TAG!

Yeh!…. It’s the Game of Thrones ULTIMATE book tag and also my first book tag.

Let me tell you that I’m crazy about this series,I love it so much! specially Jon, he’s love.

I was tagged by The YA Hunt, thanks! a lot.

Rules:

  1. Mention the creator Orang-utan Librarian.
  2.  Answer ALL of the questions.
  3. Be a Lannister and pay your debts, tag people and keep it going!

PART ONE: BOOK QUESTIONS!

we-do-not-sow

1. We do not sow – A book you would not be willing to invest in:

Maybe Not by Colleen hoover.I generally like colleen hoover books but this book is not that appealing to me. After reading a few chapters it became a burden and i quit.
It’s story is very much predictable and definitely not my type.Books with just romance and without plots and twist are time and mood wasting to me and I do not sow for those books.

fire-and-blood

2. Fire and blood – A book that produced strong emotions in you:

 

It Ends With us by colleen hoover.This book took my heart,I loved every ounce of this book.All 384 pages.It’s a power pack of emotions.It made me cry ,smile ,laugh ,love ,hate. It’s my favourite book of 2016 till now.This very much left me with book hangover when I finished this.

winter-is-coming

3. Winter is coming – Your favourite winter read:

 

Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard. This book is so freaking awesome,you can literally feel those electrical power humming inside you.The powers, the action and little bit of romance a perfect recipe for best selling novel and Victoria knows it.Can’t wait for the third part.

family-duty-honour

4. Family. Duty. Honour – A book about strong family ties:

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. Julian Blackthorn looked after the kids as well as he could even though he was barely old enough himself. His worries about them growing up and not needing him anymore nearly broke my heart. They were just this huge family unit and each one had such a distinctive personality.❤

 

growing-strong

5. Growing strong – A book you had low expectations of but grew on you:

Shatter Me by Tahren Mafi.I picked it out by myself and wasn’t really sure about it but it turns out to be one of my favourite series now i’m proud of myself for choosing it.It’s a must read series.

 

ours-is-the-fury

6. Ours is the fury – A book that made you furious:

Maze Runner by James Dashner. I don’t know  why I read books that I can guess the endings of after only a few pages. Probably to get that great righteous feeling of knowing I’m right. Maze Runner was one of those books, I’m mad that it was so predictable but I’m also glad I’m right because who would want to be wrong? Unfortunately I’m right and not happy.

 

unbowed-unbent-unbroken

7. Unbowed, unbent, unbroken – A book you have unwavering devotion to:

Rebel of the sand by alwyn hamilton.She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.It’s awesome specially the girl Amani.Her charcter is so strong ,fearless and badass.This book is a mixture of action ,romance and magical powers so their’s no question on my devotions for this book.

 

hear-me-roar

8. A Lannister always pays his debts – A book you feel indebted to:

The selection series by Kiera Cass. There are certain books in my life that roped me back in to reading and this was one of them.I loved this series specially the first the books.This book just made my life so beautiful.

 

PART 2: FAN THEORIES

Who do you want to win Game of Thrones?

Jon Snow Oh sorry Jon Targaryen. He’s the best.

Who do you think will make it to the end and who do you think will die?

I think arya and bran will live and sansa will die. But this  is Game of Thrones. So I almost think everyone will die, even Arya D’: .

 

PART 3: MY GAME OF THRONES

Would you win or die?

If it’s my game then I’m obviously going to win. I am far too competitive. But because I’m on the throne I will inevitably die. Woo.

What house are you?

House Stark according to this quiz.

Book Review – IGNITE ME by Tahereh Mafi (spoiler free)

12353868_478763042310127_285637813_n(1)

Yehh!……I’m so happy i finished this series but, sad too cause it’s over.It’s a bittersweet feeling.

So, If you have no idea about this series check out my reviews about shatter me (1 book) and unravel me(2 book). For those who read unravel me-With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.

As always there’s a lot of romance drama going on but you may be surprised to see between who but it was kind of clear in unravel me that not much was happening between Adam and Juliette so it’s doesn’t came as a twist.As i told you in the unravel me review i already liked Warner more than Adam so i was happy to see Warner’s character mingling with Juliette.It was kind of sweet.

Juliette’s character has evolved a lot in this in book and now I loved her like hell.She’s strong,fierce and mind blowing.Not just her character has evolved but her powers also advances.Warner on the other hand now seems a perfect match for her as his powers taking capabilities are awesome.He’s not mean anymore.His acts which seems non-human before are justified in this book.There’s a total character change of two people.One you already know is Warner and i don’t wanna spoil the other one. Kenji was as always so funny and lovely he’s the best.Total mood changer.He have supported Juliette a lot in this book.Adam found out in the previous book that Warner and he are brothers but Warner didn’t know till now.Well in this book he will and Warner’s reaction will be shocking.Warner shocked a lot in this book.

There’s a lot of action,drama,romance going, you”ll love it.I felt the ending was a little rushed and I mean yeah we like happy ending but i was expecting it to be bomb blasting types you know actually it was bomb blasting but i mean a little unexpected but it was fine.I loved it anyway.

I’ll give this book a 4/5 star and strongly recommend this series.💜

“Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures.
No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.”

MY REVIEW

Okay,this book concept is super awesome.I mean two people lost their memory have no idea where they are,who they are?.It is unique.Part-1 is about how they figure out little details like what their name is and where their house is ,about their parents.But they have no idea how they lost their memory,what happen to them?.In Part-2 they receive letters from themselves which tells that they have lost their memory before and will forget everything again after 48 hours.So they just have 48 hours to unravel the truth and solve the mystery.In last Part they finally solves the mystery.

The first two parts were really good,sweet,cute,charming and all and I really did like it but I had a huge problem with this book it doesn’t have a mind blowing ending rather it have a very unexpected ending (not in a positive way).I wasn’t really expecting so bad ending it feels like it has been rushed.I mean i read two books before and the third book ruined everything seriously everything.Their is so many things that could have happened and the ending could have superb but the reality is it’s bad very bad.I’m more disappointed cause the first two books were so good.I was so curious their were so many twist and turns and i just wanna keep reading.But after reading third part i was l  was really?No!….

My expectations for this series were really high and it disappointed me!.

I’ll give 2/5 stars to this series just because of that last part. If i have to rate only first two books i’ll give 4/5 stars to it.

Thank-you for reading 💜.Did you guys read it?.Feel free to comment
