Now on to the review!

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”

Review: War Storm by Victoria Aveyard

Hello there!

This is super late but here is my spoiler-free review of War Storm by Victoria Aveyard. If you are unaware this is the last book in the Red Queen series, that being said there will be some spoilers from the other books in the series. If you want to check out my reviews for those books you can check them out here —> Red Queen, Glass Sword, King’s Cage. Now on to the review.

Okay, I will start off by saying that this book took me a little over two months to read. I had a hard time really getting into the book because I felt that the first 200 pages there was not much happening and I just wanted to get to the real action. Also, I wanted to see what Maven was up to because he is such a character it is never a dull moment when he is around. That said once it started to pick up I did start to enjoy it more.

One of the things that I liked was that for two or three chapters we got to read from Maven’s point of view and I feel that for those few chapters it added so much to his character because we got to finally see a some of his inner thoughts. I also really liked some of Evangeline’s chapters because we just got to learn more about her also her sass IMG_2769is just everything! Now Mare, so if you have read King’s Cage you know how it ended and the way that Mare handles the situation was so annoying! I mean Cal didn’t handle the situation any better but those two I just couldn’t stand how they were dealing with it especially Mare.

Let’s talk about the ending. I really enjoyed the ending mainly because it was not what I thought or hoped would happen. There was a certain thing that I thought will not happen and it actually did.  I also think that it was a bold move that Aveyard let that happen. That is very vague but I don’t want to spoil it for you. What I also loved about this book as well as the entire series is how it touches on some topics that are very relevant today in a unique way. I will touch on this more in my spoiler review.

All in all, I did enjoy this book but not as much as I loved King’s Cage. I did not walk away from this book thinking “wow that was amazing” but I was thinking about it past reading the last page, that was mainly due to the ending. I will say that I feel that it could have been shorter because some parts did drag. I gave War Storm 3.75 stars out of 5. Let me know in the comments what your thoughts are on the series with no spoilers of course. Also, I will be posting my spoiler review later this week so keep an eye out for that.

 

Until next time book nerds,

April Summary and Coming Up in May

Hello there,

    I can not believe that April has ended and we are already in May! This year is going by so fast. Sadly, I did not read much in April and I am planning on having a small TBR for May. Let’s just get into my April Wrap-up, hope you enjoy.

April WU

   Unknown-2 Guys, I finally did it! I have started to read the Harry Potter Series for the first time. It was a long time coming and I am so glad I finally decided to pick this up. In April I read the first book in the series Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. I enjoyed the book so much I am starting to understand why this series is so beloved by the book community. To be honest I was a little afraid that I wasn’t going to like it because I attempted to read the first book when I was in the 6th grade back in 2001 and I didn’t finish it. It just hit me that I first tried to read Harry Potter four years after it’s released and this year will mark the 20th anniversary of its release. I can not believe it took me so long. But in my defense, I wasn’t much of a reader when I was a kid. Continue reading “April Summary and Coming Up in May”

Book Monologue 6 : King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

Hello there,

    On this post, I will be going into detail on my thoughts of King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. This review will have spoilers so if you are looking for a spoiler-free review you can check mine out! (KC Review Spoiler Free). Now let’s get into this review.

    Okay, let me start off by saying that I enjoyed the pacing for most of the book. Since Mare was taken by Maven as a prisoner I thought that her escape/ rescue was going to happen too quick.  I thought that it might have been a chapter or two of Mare being held prisoner by Maven but it actually took a good portion of the book. Which I felt made it feel more realistic, also it took several tries for Mare to get away. I feel that sometimes in books or movies the rescue or escape happens the first try. So I really liked that, that wasn’t rushed. Continue reading “Book Monologue 6 : King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard”
