Winter Glass by Lexa Hillyer Book Review

When I read Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer I couldn’t put it down. If you are like me who love fantasy, retellings and even sleeping beauty but looking for something new this book was it. So, I can’t help but be even more thrilled when I got the opportunity to read Winter Glass which is the second book the series. The book had more magic, mystery and a splash of strong female characters that help carry the story.

REVIEW:

TI really enjoyed this book and in fact it’s my favorite out the two books. The book has mix of magic, action and shows the bond between two sisters. Each sister also shines in their own quest and must make hard choice that detect the results of the story. I also like that the book has many strong female characters from the villain to the heroes. That said I would’ve liked to see more Prince William in the story and more of the secondary characters that happen to be in the story. But overall I really enjoyed it.

The Token Huntress takes in the future where humans are scare and the world is taken over but three races of vampires.

In the book, the story focuses on Esmore who is known as the Token Huntress. Her duty is to lead her guild and to fight all vampire and protect humans and the world.

Throughout the book, she must discover the reason behind this darkness if she wants to save her kind of vampires. But will the mysterious vampire be a step in the way?

REVIEW:

This book is exciting. When I was reading it I couldn’t put it down. I read it like in two days and just want more from it because it was so good. There is action, a strong female characters, a hot romance and just lots of fighting scenes that held my attention. At first, when I learned that it was a vampire book I expected a typical urban fantasy vampire book but this was totally fresh. I think the end of humanity idea where humans are close to extinction, a world taken over by vampires and hunters at war with them gave it a fresh interesting take on this world. I also like the way the author built the world and history and lets you know why the world is this way and helped paint the picture. As for the main character Esmore, I think she is a strong bad ass. She can fight and doesn’t rely on special abilities except for her skills when it comes to a bow and sword. I actually can’t wait to see what comes next and see how the story continues.

The Lesser Bohemians by Eimear McBride Book Review

This book gave me a mixed bag of feeling. When I came across this book I thought it looked interesting and thought this book had a cool premise and cover. And usually, I have a good feeling about a cover and can spot a great book. Except this one gave me a different feeling.

SYNOPSIS:

The Lesser Bohemians is about a girl from Ireland who goes to London to attend drama school. This book takes place in 1990. The girl at the school meets an attractive actor who is much older and they both develop a strong bond. Throughout you see how their relationship evolves and changes. Along with that you also get to see the inner feelings surrounding finding that first love.

REVIEW:

I really don’t know what to say about this book. I obviously don’t because I found this book somewhat confusing. In fact, the way the book was written was so confusing that I didn’t finish. The synopsis of the book was intriguing and I thought it was a great concept. But, the way it was written where there was the weird short sentence, awful use of function and just bad grammar usage I don’t know why I should finish it. The grammar in the book was very distracting that I didn’t really get into the story and after like 50 or more pages I gave up from frustration. Was this book written this way was for intended purposes? I don’t know but at the same time, I think the book should at least be a little easier for all readers. Anyway, that is my overall feelings. If you want to give the book a shot I will have a link above including an expert as well. And until my next post keep on reading.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey Book Review

  • Title: The Infinite Sea
  • Author: Rick Yancey
  • Series: The 5th Wave
  • Year Published: 2014
  • Page Count: 300
  • Goodreads: Here
  • Buy Book: On Amazon

Synopsis

Back to the end of the world of The 5th Wave. In The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey, we continue on where we left off bringing back characters: Cassie, Ben, and Ringer in this post-apocalyptic world. The book brings the suspense and the thrillers of the book along with the science fiction areas along. Cassie must protect her brother while being forced to tag along with Ben and his friends after escaping Safe Haven. Cassie also must deal with the loss of Ethan. The Infinite Sea also focuses on the other main character Ringer when she goes on a mission on her own but turns for the worse when she is captured by the enemy. Throughout the story, the characters must do what they can to survive and confront their past. But also the character must deal with the truths that are behind the attack on humanity but The Others.

I was really excited to find out what happens next and see where the story leads me. The book kept the suspense and action that the first book had. I also enjoyed seeing my favorite characters in the book and getting to learn more about the other side characters from the first book. The Infinite Sea also has more plot twists and secrets that know how to get you guess without throwing everything at you at once. What I also liked is learning more about Ringers past and how she became Ringer we all know. Though the one thing I didn’t like was the way the book was structured. I wish that since the book is split into sections I wish they would let us know which character’s point of view it is. It took me awhile to figure which character I am reading about.
