Mini-Reviews: January 2016 Edition
I’ve been thinking a lot of about this and I’ve realized it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed books on this blog. With everything that’s been going on, it’s not like I really have the time. But I started 2016 off strong with reading and thought I’d share some of my favorites, with quick reviews.
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab (Verity #1)
Okay, so this…this book was AMAZING. I adore Victoria’s books and going into this one I, obviously, had high expectations. Well, they were met and then some! In TSS we meet both August Flynn and Kate Harker, two main characters, from two different sides of the war. And I have to say, I really really enjoyed these two. They were so interesting, in their own unique ways, that I couldn’t stop reading. It barely took me any time to finish the book and I was very sad when it was over. This book is basically for anyone who likes Victoria’s writing, or good books, or a unique look at good vs. evil, or just really anything. Read it! In stores: June 7, 2016
(Also, this cover is gorgeous!)
Ruined by Amy Tintera (Ruined #1)
I read Amy’s other duology, Reboot, and I really enjoyed her style of writing and storytelling. I’m always nervous reading books in a different genre by an author I enjoy because sometimes they get it right and sometimes they really don’t. I am happy to announce that Amy got it right. I just finished another fantasy novel that was a disappointment so I was wondering if reading this one would be a bad idea. It actually had the opposite effect, as it was the perfect book to read to get me out of my fantasy slump. I truly enjoyed Em and Cas as the main characters. I really liked the world Amy created and I would like to know more about it. There was just enough action to keep me fully invested, as I’m a big fan of fast paced. I’m excited to see where the series goes next! In stores: May 3, 2016
(This cover is pretty awesome as well)
The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins (The Great Hunt #1)
So I read this book at the end of 2015, but I really wanted to highlight it here because I am a big fan of this book! You all know how much I adore Wendy’s writing and I read basically anything by her. This one really hit the spot for me in the fairytale category. Even the feel of the writing style made it all fairytale like. Princess Aerity and Paxton were all kinds of fun in the main characters department. I enjoyed their uniqueness and their chemistry. I also really like the family feel to the royal family and Paxton and his brother, as I’m a huge fan of family stories. Overall, this book really delivered and I cannot wait to read more by Wendy! She’s a fantastic writer and I think everyone should check out her books. You’ll thank me later. In stores: March 8, 2016
(Also, another great cover!)
Well, that is all for me, folks! I’ll try to do a few of these sporadically, if you’d like. Would you? Let me know if you have read any of these or are planning on doing so!
Also, I’m taking blogging suggestions, so let me know what you’d like to see on here!
