REVIEW: The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Image
"You don't need to be gifted with a blade. You are your own best weapon." It all began with a curse, which led to a crime and will resolve with a kiss.

The highly anticipated finale to the epic Winner's trilogy have arrived!

REVIEW: The Moth and the Flame by Renee Ahdieh

Image
"Instead he came across a girl with a decidedly pensive gaze. A girl with an empty silver tray dangling from one hand. When a ray of afternoon sun struck its surface, the flash of light drew him toward her, like a moth to a flame." So very much similar to a moth to light, I was drawn to read about the Jalal and Despina's love story. I wanted to see how the captain of the royal guard and a handmaiden fell in love.

REVIEW: The Crown and the Arrow by Renee Ahdieh

Image
"Do not fear what the setting sun may bring. Where there is a setting sun, there is also a rising one." To smooth my excitement after reading the Wrath and the Dawn, I decided to read the Crown and the Arrow. Pretty much it's written from Khalid's perspective of the event of him meeting Shahrzad. I liked getting to know what his thought were, but I only wish it was longer.

Rating: 3/5 stars

REVIEW: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

Image
"All our lives are forfeit, sayyidi. It is just a question of when. And I would like one more day." - ShahrzadThe Wrath and the Dawn had taken me on a magic carpet ride that I did not want to end. Since I mentioned a magic carpet, the song, "A Whole New World" from the Aladdin movie constantly played in my head as I read this book. It did take me to "a whole new world" filled with mysteries, secrets, love, and magic.

REVIEW: Confess by Colleen Hoover

Image
"There are people you meet and get to know, then there are people you meet and already know." - Auburn This is my confession...I had a hard time putting this book down.

OMG (with pun and all intended) Colleen Hoover had done again by blowing me away with another one of her book. Is it possible to have a book warms and tears your heart to pieces? Yes, friends it does exist. Ta da here is it. I experienced a roller coaster of emotions I certainly miss when reading a captivating story.

DNF: The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

Image
Status: DNF

After reading numerous YA fantasy novels, I decided to place myself in modern time. The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord happened to be one of the contemporary I started in February. The first page of the book did not draw me in, but I don't let the first page predetermined the fate of the whole book. I continued on page after page until I find myself not feel intrigue by this story anymore.
