Here is what I ended up reading for my 24 Hour Read-A-Thon last Saturday.
1. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
This was the first book I read in the 24 hours and I was so excited to read this since I have watched a lot of movie versions of this story. I would have to say that most movies are fairly accurate compared to the book. Of course they are not the same but from the ones I have seen they have get most of the plot the same.
In the hopes of getting as much reading done by the end of the year ( which is a little over a week away), I have decided to do a 24-hour read-a-thon on Saturday the 22nd. In the past 24 hr read-a-thons starting at midnight doesn’t always work out so well, so I will start reading at noon est and read until 11:59 am the next day. I will also defiantly get some sleep in.
What I Plan on Reading
1- Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han
The last book in the To all the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy. I loved the first two books so I am excited to see how this story ends.
Here is a new review for you guys. This review is on the book Rule by Ellen Goodlett. Want to know more about it? Well, keep on reading.
“The king is dying, his heir has just been murdered, and rebellion brews in the east. But the kingdom of Kolonya and the outer Reaches has one last option before it descends into leaderless chaos.
Or rather, three unexpected options.
Zofi has spent her entire life trekking through the outer Reaches with her band of Travelers. She would do anything to protect the band, her family. But no one can ever find out how far she’s already gone.
Akeylah was raised in the Eastern Reach, surrounded by whispers of rebellion and abused by her father. Desperate to escape, she makes a decision that threatens the whole kingdom.
Ren grew up in Kolonya, serving as a lady’s maid and scheming her way out of the servants’ chambers. But one such plot could get her hung for treason if anyone ever discovers what she’s done.
When the king summons the girls, they arrive expecting arrest or even execution. Instead, they learn the truth: they are his illegitimate daughters, and one must become his new heir. But someone in Kolonya knows their secrets, and that someone will stop at nothing to keep the sisters from their destiny… to rule.
Magic, mystery, and blackmail abound in this sensational and striking fantasy debut.”
Long time no book review. I am so happy to be writing a new book review and this one will be on Furyborn by Claire Legrand. Furyborn the first book in the Empirium trilogy was released on May 22nd, 2018 by Sourcebooks Fire. It is the story of two powerful women and their story takes place one thousand years apart.
“When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.Continue reading “Review: Furyborn by Claire Legrand”→

In this post, I will be talking about all my thoughts on War Storm by Victoria Aveyard the last book in the Red Queen series. This review will have spoilers so if you want to read my spoiler-free review you can go here → War Storm Spoiler Free.
Like I said in my spoiler-free review I felt that the first 200 pages were dragging and I was just there waiting for the action to start. I like fast-paced books so it just took so much for me to get through this book. Once the story started to pick up I did really enjoy this conclusion novel. It went places that I didn’t expect it to which is good because it makes it unpredictable. Continue reading “Book Monologue #9: War Storm by Victoria Aveyard”→
