I absolutely loved this book! It was set in Australia and a fantasy world. How cool is that? The thing I loved most is that Levy writes about anxiety and PTSD. The way she writes about it is almost as if she is a psychologist! Best adaptation of dealing with tough situations I have ever read.

My rating: 5 Stars

ACOFAS

 

I read A Court of Frost and Starlight in a day. I really was that short. This was not my favorite ACOTAR book. It was, as my good friend put it, a fanfic Christmas story. It was cute. That was it. I am however excited for the promise of the next book! There was a sneak peek chapter in ACOFAS!

This was an interesting read for me. It was an illustrated suspense novel. The author is also an artist and quite good! I loved her writing style and the character progression. It was a little too dark and scary for me though!

And this is my half book I read! I am absolutely loving this book so far! It has been a loooong time since I have read an epic fantasy series! And this is my first Sanderson book! Unless you count when he finished the Wheel of Time series, then this is my first of his alone. I can definitely see why he is so many reader’s favorite author!! He is amazing!

Happy Adventuring!

A nice break from what I normally read now. This type of fantasy was what got me heavily into reading when I was in middle school. Good writing, good plot, good character development. Some parts I felt myself skimming through, but all in all it was a good read.

Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne

-My rating: 3 Stars-

-Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers-

-Release Date: May 1, 2018-

Classic case of a fantastic plot with boring characters. One of the characters was an alcoholic and it was never fully addressed. I liked this book however and it did make me want to read Jane Eyre, which this was loosely based off of.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand

-My rating: 4.5 Stars-

-Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire-

-Release Date: May 22, 2018-

My absolute favorite read in April. It had action, magic, a little bit of romance, princes and princesses, and female bad a**ery. I knocked a half star only because some of the phrasing was repetitive, like “I felt my cheeks flame” was used a lot. However, I highly recommend this fantasy! Loved it!

Let me know if聽you’ve read any of these! I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy Adventuring!
