Hello there!

Other reviews in the series:

Red Queen–     Spoiler Free  with Spoilers

Glass Sword–   Spoiler Free  with Spoilers

King’s Cage–     Spoiler Free  with Spoilers

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,

sat june 3rd

    The first day of BookCon Carleny and I decided to get to the Javits Center by 8 am ( the show floor opened at 10 am). We know that people like to get their really early to be one of the first people on the show floor. So, I got up at 6 am and was out of my house by 7 am. Carleny and I got to the Javits at about 8:10 am. Guys, by that time there was already so many people there it was insane. Then we had to wait for the show floor to open at 10 am. After so much waiting they were finally letting us in, Carleny and I were on the show floor at about 10:15 am. The first thing we did was search for the booth where First In Line would be because we had received an email to go to their booth to pick up a Underlined Swag tote with a surprise box full of bookish fun. Let me tell you we had a little trouble finding the booth turned out they were in the Penguin booth. Continue reading “BookCon Day 1: Experience and Haul”
