Oh My Fairytales: Reflection by Elizabeth Lim

Hello there!

Here is another Oh My Fairytales post and this one is on Reflection by Elizabeth Lim. This is the fourth book in the A Twisted Tale series. In Reflection, we follow the story of Mulan where the twist is “What if Mulan had to travel to the underworld?” I have to say that this has been my favorite in the twisted tales series. Before I get too ahead of my self I will explain more about this book.

In Reflection, we jump right into the scene where they are fighting the Huns on the mountain. In this battle, Shang is injured badly and this is how Mulan still disguised as Ping has to travel to the underworld to save him from death. I loved how Lim created a new story but still made it feel like the story that we already know from the Disney movie. Even though this book is very different from the movie it was so cool how Lim included lines from the movie. For example, she would take a line from early in the movie and add that line to the story she created. It was honestly so fun to find all the lines that were in the movie in this book.

Review: What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie

Hello there!

I received an ebook of What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie from Black Rose Writing and this post will be my spoiler free review. Hope you enjoy.

About: 

Unknown

“Millington Valley is a quintessential small Pennsylvania town: families go back generations. Football rules. Kids drink while adults look the other way. High school is a whirlwind of aspiration and rivalry, friendship and jealousy.

When smart and pretty Molly Hanover moves to town and attracts the attention of the football team’s hero, Wade Thornton—a nice guy with a bad drinking habit—longtime friendships are threatened and a popular cheerleader tries to turn the school against Molly.

The young couple’s future is shattered when Wade, drunk, wrecks his truck and Molly is thrown through the windshield. She wakes from a coma to find her beauty marred and her memory full of holes. As she struggles to heal, she becomes sure that something terrible happened before the accident. And there is somebody in the valley who doesn’t want her to remember.”  Continue reading “Review: What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie”

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.

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.

Review : Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Hello there,

This post is going to be on my thoughts on Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I had been looking forward to this book ever since I finished Winter by Meyer which I read January 2016. I absolutely fell in love with the Lunar Chronicles so I was looking forward to finally reading Heartless. Heartless is Meyer’s first book outside of the Lunar Chronicles world as well as her first stand-alone book. What this book is about is the story of a girl named Catherine who we all know today as the Queen of Hearts. All Catherine wanted to do was open a bakery with her best friend but that is not what the world had planned for her.  Continue reading “Review : Heartless by Marissa Meyer”

Review: Soundless by Richelle Mead

Hello there,

Today’s post is going to be my review on Soundless by Richelle Mead. Soundless is about a girl named Fei who lives in a village that is on top of a mountain. In Fei’s village, the people mine for medals and send them to the township that is at the base of the mountain. The way that they send the medals down the mountain is by zip line because many years before the path to go down the mountain was blocked off with rocks caused by an avalanche. Oh, and that is not even half of their problems, everyone in the village are deaf so they communicate by sign language but now people are starting to lose their sight which is a huge problem. Not only that, the township is sending them less food because they are not minding as much as they had. One day in the middle of the night Fei regains her hearing and that is when the story truly begins.fullsizerender Continue reading “Review: Soundless by Richelle Mead”
