Review: One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

Hello there!

         I have finally finished reading One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake! That took me over a month to read and I am not sure why because I really enjoyed it. One Dark Throne is the sequel to Three Dark Crowns, so there will be spoilers on Three Dark Crowns in case you haven’t read it yet. I have a review on Three Dark Crowns if you want a spoiler-free review of the first book.

About:

One Dark Throne starts a little bit after where we left off in Three Dark Crowns. After the crazy events that went down in Three Dark Crowns we get to see how the three Queens react to those events. Katharine somehow made it out alive out of the Breccia Domain and is more determined than ever to win the crown. Arsinoe has learned that she is not a Naturalist but a poisoner, so she needs to figure out how to take advantage of this secret. Mirabella has to try to keep the people around her from getting hurt.

Read-A-Thon by Zoe

Hello there!

Yesterday, December 9th 2017 I participated in the 24 hour readathon hosted by ReadbyZoe on YouTube. This post I will let you guys know how it went. Now let’s get into it.

I stated the readathon at 1:30 AM by reading One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake. I started ODT in November and I was halfway into the book. The goal was to get a good a good amount of it read because I have been reading ODT for far too long. So I read from 1:30 Am until 5 Am. I ended up reading about 70ish pages which was a really good dent.  At 5 AM I decided to go to sleep because I was really tired. Continue reading “Read-A-Thon by Zoe”

Writing Update #3: Naming Characters and Occupation

Hello there!

Today’s post is an update on the book I have been working on. I am going to be covering naming my characters as well as figuring out what their occupation will be. That being said let’s just get right into it.

One thing that has taken me so long to do is name these characters. I have had their first names for a few weeks now but in the last few days, I have had to figure out their last names. Oh, boy was that a process! For my characters I wanted their first and last names to flow well together. Also, I wanted them not to have names that are used a lot, I wanted them to be at least a tiny bit original. Now, did I accomplish that goal? I have no idea but I am happy with the names that they ended up with…well at least for now. I have no clue if they will end up changing once I get to the actual writing of this book and truly discover who these characters are. Honestly, I am okay with that as long as I feel that by the end that I have found the best name for them I will be happy. I am so excited to actually get started on the book and see where these characters take me. Continue reading “Writing Update #3: Naming Characters and Occupation”

Review: Rise of the Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz

Hello there!

 

   Finally, the last review of the The Isle of the Lost books. I know this is really late but better late than never right? Well, I say we just get into this review. This will be spoiler free so do not fear and read on.

   I am going to start off by talking about what I liked about the book. One of the things that I liked is the fact that things are explained. I liked that they explained where Harry Hook and Gil came from. In the first two books we know that Captain Hook has a daughter named Harriet and Gaston has twin sons named Gaston and Gaston. So when I heard about Harry son of Captain Hook and Gil son of Gaston I thought they were just going to pretend that Harriet and the Gaston twins were never a thing. But it is explained that  Harriet and Harry are siblings and the Gaston twins and Gil are brothers as well. You may say well duh obviously they are siblings. But Harry and Gil are not mentioned in the first two books they just pop up in the third book. That is what made me think that they were going to pretend that Harriet and the Gaston twins weren’t a thing. Make sense? I hope it does.
