Hello there!

    This past weekend I was able to attend BookCon in NYC, thanks to my friend Carleny for the early birthday gift. Carleny also has a book blog called Warning: Spoiler Alert check it out after you read this post. This post will be about my experience at BookCon and a haul on the things I got. Now, let’s get into it.

    

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”

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”

1) Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodgefullsizerender-jpg

      I started Cruel Beauty in January and was able to finish it in February. This book was okay. There were a lot of times while reading, that I really did not know what was happening. If certain things were explained more I feel that this book would have been a four or five-star book. Continue reading “February Summary and Coming up in March”

Red Queen by: Victoria Aveyard :Review

“In school, we learned about the world before ours, about the angles and gods that lived in the sky, ruling the earth with kind and loving hands. Some say those are just stories, but I don’t believe that.

The gods rule us still. They have come down from the stars. And they are no longer kind.” -Mare Barrow

Red Queen is a story about a world where the people are separated by blood. There are the Silvers who have magical abilities and the Reds who do not and serve the Silvers. Mare is Red but one day in front of the King she discovers that she has magical abilities. How can that be? After all, Mare is just a Red, isn’t she?
