Is Throne of Glass worth it?

I need your thoughts 🤔💭

I’ve been debating for a while now if I should read Throne of Glass. I’ve seen alot of mixed reviews especially about the heroine 😏. With the release of the 7Th book Kingdom of Ash, which I have been seeing EVERYWHERE, I’m starting to feel like maybe I’m missing out on a really great series!

What are your thoughts, have you read the series? If so would you recommend it??

While I await some feedback, I am currently reading How to Be Safe. I hope to have a review posted tomorrow!

Thanks for reading 😊

An Anonymous Girl-Review

 

No automatic alt text available.

An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

Publish Date: January 8,2019 by St. Martins Press

Pages: 384                 Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Fiction

My Rating: 3.5


“We all have reasons for our actions. Even if we hide the reason from those who think they know us best. Even if the reasons are so deeply buried, we can’t recognize them ourselves.”

Like I’m sure many people do, I normally buy a book for its cover. Even though, I did not buy this book since its an ARC the cover is the main reason why I am so excited about reading this.

OMINOUS

DEVIOUS

CURIOUS

DESIROUS

SUSPICIOUS

DANGEROUS

MALICIOUS

MURDEROUS

I’ve been reading a lot of thrillers and suspense stories lately, and that cover made it seem like it would be an excellent read. Which is why I feel a little letdown. I’m not sure if it was just me slowly reading(I’m trying to break myself out of this slump) or if the story was just slow moving. The book begins having you read an invitation to a study that is being conducted for women between the ages of 18 – 32. It is a research study on ethics and morality. Jessica who is a make-up artist is at a clients house one day when the client Taylor tells her friend about a being invited to fill out a questionnaire for $500. Since Jessica needs the money, she needs up showing up for the appointment the next morning and gets invited back the next day to participate in the study some more. She finds the questions to be a little unnerving because she is harboring a secret that’s she has felt guilty about for many years.  This all gets me interested so far, I like where the story is going. Then I just find it odd how much she seems to be overly fond of Dr. Shield, the therapist who is conducting the study.  So fond that she is willing to expand her participation by doing real-life experiments. I don’t want to give away too many spoilers since there are a few months before this book is released so I’ll just get into what I really thought about the book instead of giving you a summary.

My thoughts…..

Overall I really enjoyed the plot of the story, I just felt like it was a bit flat and the ending was a total disappointment. Maybe disappointment is the wrong word….. it was a fitting end I suppose, it just wasn’t how I thought it was going to end. There was soo much more that could have been done with this story. The way it was set up and the direction it was moving I was hoping for some more thriller. The cover says murderous and dangerous, but while reading it you wouldn’t have been able to pinpoint who those were for, is this making sense?

What I’m trying to say here is it was lacking something. It needed more thriller, more action it was a little slow paced in my opinion, and then it just abruptly ends and not in the way you would have thought it would.

I do recommend it, it was an overall good story, and the writing style was great.

Thank you St. Martins Press for giving me a copy!

Goodbye October,

44753-Goodbye-October-Hello-November

October has come to an end…..

I apologize in advance for the lack of blog post for this month. I’m honestly not sure what happened. Usually, I am able to complete and sometimes past my reading goal of 7 books but this month I only read four, and one of them is a children’s book. So for this summary of all the books I’ve read, I will rate from favorite to less favorite.

  1. The Lies We Told by Camilla Way- 4 Stars.
  2. Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell- 4 Stars.
  3. Peter and the Dwarf Planets by Stephen J. Alexander- 4 Stars.
  4. House of Falling Embers by Krystal Jane Ruin- 3 Stars

I’m disappointed in myself, but hey, unfortunately, reading slumps do happen, and I landed in one this month.

I have a feeling next month is going to be a way better month so be on the lookout for lots of reviews starting next month!

Peter and the Dwarf Planets-Review

Peter and the Dwarf Planets by Stephen J. Alexander

Published: August 30 by Olympia Publishers of London, Mumbai, and L.A.

Genre: Kid’s book

My Rating: 4 Stars!


So I’ve never rated a kid’s books before, but I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review so I would like to say thank you to Stephen and Olympia Publishers for providing me with a copy!

Now time for the good stuff,

I absolutely adored this book! I honestly loved everything about it. Most children books are usually white with color only in the pictures. But Peter and the Dwaft planets has black pages with lots of color and images that go really well with the story. I think that is what really made this book stand out. Now I know what your thinking I’m adult so what do I really know about kid books. Well, my son is a huge reason why I also rated this book 4 stars. He is 7 years old and has autism, now he doesn’t like to sit still very well for ANYTHING. When I started reading this book to him, he sat down and paid attention to the whole book. Then asked me if he could look at the pictures because the pages were so colorful he thought they were awesome. After that he had me read the book to him three more times before he went to bed :D! Now that, that made me really happy. This is the second book that he has done this for, so that has to say something. It was written well, and I enjoyed how the sentences rhymed.

I recommended this to all children, its a short read but it is fun and is about planets, who doesn’t like things that involve space!?

 

Book Spotlight! The Last Myon

Book Spotlight!

44075892_10217664354218897_2805266977533198336_n (1)

Are you craving a dark fantasy filled with amazing characters and an endless amount of action including death and gore?! Then I have just the book for you. The Last Myon by Rudi Jennings. It features a variety of creature including a myon, Geflack, Cyclops, an elf woman, a dwarf and a banshee.


Book Description:

“The Last Myon” is a story of fantasy adventure, revenge and an individual’s total unwillingness to submit or to fail, battling against overwhelming natural elements and a group of hardened, sadistic creatures who will stop at nothing to succeed in his capture and slavery.
In an everlasting winter world, Ackrehm, the last of his Myon kind, must fight for his life, sustaining multiple injuries along the way and still demonstrating he truly is a force to be reckoned with. Struggling with exhaustion, both mentally and physically, will he manage to overcome, or will he fight or flee?
One thing is for certain, “The Last Myon” will keep you hooked until the very end, bonding with characters and excitedly reading on with an obsession to find out what happens next, promoting an ethos to take away of never give up, never surrender.


Below you will find my review and links available for purchasing a copy!

The Last Myon by Rudi Jennings

Published: December 7, 2017

Rating: 4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

“Fear, rage, thirst, and pain all coursed through his veins, burning fire like embers and coursing like a shooting star, allowing him to run faster and faster.”

I really enjoyed how the story was fast moving, it kept going from the very beginning, there was action, and it didn’t stop. The story first follows the Myon and the Geflacks. Ackrehm(myon) took the leader Kadamlic by surprise and injured him after the Geflacks killed his horse Therd. Kadamlic who was King wanted to seek revenge on Myon. He sent two of his soldiers Raith and Cleave to bring the Myon back to him alive. The writing style was really good, and the way the characters were described really allowed you to envision what the characters looked like. I like the various creatures that were involved in the book, the myon, Geflack Cyclops, the elf woman( who was my favorite), a dwarf and a banshee. The end took me by surprise, and I can’t wait to find out what happens next. Possibly find out why Ackrehm may be the last Myon….?

” I want this bastards skin hanging from my walls, I want to taste his heart and feel it’s last beat in my hand.”

If you enjoy dark fantasy and don’t shy away from plenty of deaths, then I highly recommend this book to you! Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
