A few weeks ago I was watching some youtube videos and I found a video for a Sailor Moon book tag. I thought wow this is awesome I should answer the questions for this tag on my blog. The person that created this tag is StarDustPanda on youtube, so check out her original video of the tag. When answering these questions I answered with books I have actually read. I felt like I was cheating if I said a book that I have not read and don’t even own. Hope you enjoy, now on to the questions!
1) Sailor Moon : Name a book with a lost princess.
A: Cinder by Marissa Meyer
2) Sailor Mercury: Name a book with a doctor in it.
So on wednesday I took a trip down to the library with my friend Carleny who is also a book blogger. Usually I borrow one or two books but not that day. There were so many good books available I just had to get them. Not having to place any books on hold um yes please! I ended up taking out 7 books, that is the most I have borrowed at one time. My thought “if i can’t read them all by the time they are due I can just renew them, if not there is no harm done.” I have been on a book buying ban and I realized that I get the same excitement that I get when I buy books by just borrowing them. Yes I know you can’t keep them but it beats buying a book and then finding out that you don’t like the book. Now lets get to the books that I got.
This will be a review with spoilers. So if you have not read Finding Audrey and are looking for a spoiler free review CLICK HERE for my review. If you have read Finding Audrey, keep on reading! Heads up, I read this book back in July so I had some trouble remembering exact details so this monologue isn’t as organized and as detailed as other ones will be like. Hope you still enjoy my thoughts!
Audrey has gone through a traumatic experience that has left her in a very fragile state. Audrey has social anxiety and to cope with this she stays at home and wears dark glasses because she can’t deal with eye contact. Finding Audrey is about her struggles on how to get better as well as her family and how they are coping with things as well.
When I first picked up this book (thank you to Carleny for letting me borrow it), I did not know what to expect. As soon as the first few pages of meeting Audrey I felt connected to her. The way that she explained her social anxiety I could relate to and I couldn’t wait to see what her journey would be like.
First thing first: this post is going to have a lot of spoilers; that said if you have not read Red QueenDO NOT read this. You can come back and read this post once you have read Red Queen. If you want to read my spoiler free review CLICK HERE. Now that that is out the of way if you have already read Red Queen continue reading for all my thoughts. Enjoy!
“In school, we learned about the world before ours, about the angles and gods that lived in the sky, ruling the earth with kind and loving hands. Some say those are just stories, but I don’t believe that.
The gods rule us still. They have come down from the stars. And they are no longer kind.” -Mare Barrow
Red Queen is a story about a world where the people are separated by blood. There are the Silvers who have magical abilities and the Reds who do not and serve the Silvers. Mare is Red but one day in front of the King she discovers that she has magical abilities. How can that be? After all, Mare is just a Red, isn’t she?
