Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Hello there!

    I am finally doing my review of Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake! I finished reading TDC right before BookTube-A-Thon stated so over two weeks ago. So here it finally is, hope you enjoy.

“Three dark queens are born in a glen, sweet little triplets will never be friends. Three dark sisters all fair to be seen, two to devour and one to be Queen.”

About:

Three Dark Crowns is about triplet sisters that all have an equal right to the throne. The only thing is that to find out who will be queen once they turn sixteen they have to fight to the death until only one queen is standing. Also, each triplet has a certain power: Katharine is a poisoner, Arsinoe is a naturalist, and Mirabella is an elemental.

Book Series I Have Not Finished

Hello there!

  I have a question for you, have you ever read the first book in a series and then months maybe even years later you have yet to finish the rest of the books in that series? Well, that may have happened to me one or a few times. So, this post will be on book series that I have started a while ago and still have not finished. Now, let’s get into this list!

1) Divergent by Veronica Roth   IMG_8652 

    I read Divergent back in 2014 then I read Insurgent in 2015, I really enjoyed both books. Now, with Allegiant I started it in 2016 and never finished it. Honestly, I was spoiled on the ending of Allegiant so that was part of why I didn’t finish it. As well as I just lost interest in the story. At this point in time, I have no plans on finishing Allegiant. Continue reading “Book Series I Have Not Finished”

Review: Avenged by Amy Tintera

Hello there!

    Finally! After months and months of waiting, I was able to read the second book in the Ruined series Avenged! I’ll let you guys know from now that the second book did not disappoint, this was a great continuation. First things first if you have not read either books stop right there and check out my spoiler-free review of Ruined. This review will have some spoilers of Ruined since this is a sequel. Now let’s get into the actual review!

    Guys! I absolutely loved this second book, Avenged. I thought it was a great continuation and I loved seeing all the characters development. In Ruined Emelina’s main goal is to save her sister Olivia from the Lera kingdom who kidnapped her. By the end of book one Em accomplishes her goal and saves her sister. Em’s plan had worked exactly how she planned it, except for one thing. Em never planned on developing feelings for the Lera Prince, Casimir. Continue reading “Review: Avenged by Amy Tintera”

BookCon Day 2: Experience and Haul

Hello there,

    One week later and I am finally posting the second part to my BookCon post. This will be all about day two let’s just get into it.

Sunday june 4th    After the first day, Carleny and I realized that if we wanted to get the One Dark Throne Arc we had to get to the Javits Center earlier than we did on day one. So we agreed to meet up on Sunday at 7 am. This meant that we had to wake up at 5 am and leave by 6 am. Carleny had to leave her house around 5:45 am because she lives feather from Manhattan than I do. Early that morning I get a text from Carleny that says “I’m up, don’t make me call you!” and I responded with “I’m up!”. After such a long day on Saturday and then having to be up at 5 Am we were not in the most chipper mood to be up that early. I was on the train by a little after 6 am and I was shocked at a number of people on the train that early on a Sunday ha ha. I met up with Carleny and we were on the line at about 7:05 Am. Since we got to the Javits Center earlier on Sunday we had to line up outside since the queue hall didn’t open until 8 Am. Continue reading “BookCon Day 2: Experience and Haul”

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”

March Summary and Coming Up in April

Hello there!

    This post is going to be all about what I read in March and what I plan on reading in April. Sadly I did not read much in March so because of that my April TBR is going to be on the small side just so I don’t feel overwhelmed and feel like I need to rush to finish all the books before the month is up. Okay, let’s just get into the books.
