This was a really pretty book. I really enjoyed reading it. I think is the perfect read for the summer and if you enjoyed “[book:Since You’ve Been Gone|18189606]” by Morgan Matson, you are definitely going to love this one.

In this story Morgan brings Andie, who we could say is a normal girl, besides the fact that her father is a congressman, and her life revolves around politics, she has a pretty normal life. She had everything planned out for her summer, an important internship that was crucial for her resume, because she wants to become a doctor, and well, the internship is or young aspirants.
But since a scandal on her father’s office goes down, her internship gets revoked, and well, she gets to spend the summer with 3 of her best friends and has practically the best summer of her life.

There’s a lot of Father/daughter relationship going on this book. Since her father was always working and always on the office, she actually never got to be with him. Now that her dad is the house because of the scandal, they get to see each other which is really awkward to say the least. But after talking and actually getting to know each other their relationship improves, and everything is okay.

Andie is not much of an open book when it comes to boys. She usually lasts 3 weeks with them and then lets them be. That’s until Clark comes in. He’s a cute nerd, just like the rest of us. He gets to break through her barriers and they actually get to have a beautiful relationship.

I actually recommend this book from ages 14 and up. If you are looking for a beautiful contemporary teen fiction/romance to read than this is the perfect book to read, especially since summer is coming up!!!

Non-Spoiler Book Review – A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

5/5 Stars

“Because I bet you could get into some interesting position with those wings…”

ACOMAF follows the story of Feyre, a young huntress who has faced many challenges on
the first book of this trilogy, “ACOTAR” that changed her whole life.

This book shows Feyre’s transition between her human life to her high fae life, and how broken she really is because of the sacrifices she had to make to save the people she loved. Since she became high fae, Tamlin has brought her to the Spring Court, and she’s suffocating. The pressure of being the high lady of the spring court, the pressure of having to portray an17927395 image, of everyone expecting something from her, wanting her to be someone she’s not is too much for her to take in. In her desperate moments, she asks for anyone to come and help her. That’s where Rhysand comes in.

I love the work that Sarah did with this book. The actual copy is 624 pages long–so this is a book that would keep you entertain during a couple of days–or if you are like me, probably one long night. I did love that she made ACOMAF this long because it gives us time to actually understand the story, and it gave Maas the opportunity to write and explain everything really well. All of the information written on this book is crucial for the bone of the story, I think she did a great job on developing the other side characters. New characters that we get to meet in this that weren’t in the first one–details that make us fall a little more in love with this book.

Romance wise this book is way more heated than ACOTAR, there’s a lot of steam going on on this book guys, but it is just for the best! I like how Sarah doesn’t sugar coat this scenes with cotton candy, because in the end Feyre is 20, and well, she can do whatever she wants. I would recommend it to readers 17 years old or older; however, if you are younger just make sure to keep an open mind.

On characters perspective, I love how Sarah wrote about them, they are powerful characters, and we get to see more from Feyre’s sisters. And we even get to see this other side of Rhysand, a side that we didn’t get to discover on A Court of Thorns and Roses, a side we didn’t even knew he had. Rhysand’s new personality on this book just made me fall in love with the book a little bit more.

Overall I give this book 5/5 stars because Sarah is an amazing writer, and this book is really well developed. It follows everything smoothly and nothing is too complicated to understand. If you haven’t this series, then please do. Is long overdue!

Non-Spoiler Book Review – The Crown by Kiera Cass

4/5 stars.

Eadlyn Schreave continues her story on “The Crown” where the choices she has to make will not only dictate her future, but her present as well. Since her mother is under medical care, her father has chosen to stay by America’s side through her process; now, is Eadlyn’s duty as a princess and future Queen of Illea to take care of her family, the selection and of her country.26074181

I really enjoyed Kiera Cass’ writing style, I think it was appropriate for the “time” that the book was written on. It was simple and easy, nothing to hard to understand. This book is more clean (romance wise) than her first three books, I would definitely recommend this book to teens from 13 years old and up. I did felt like she rushed us through her story though. The characters were well described in the context of the book; however, the book itself is very short and with a lot of space between chapters–I wish she could’ve prolonged the story and give us a little bit more of description regarding the characters.

 I felt like Eadlyn’s character in this book is more humble towards everyone, and I really appreciate her change of personality. In “The Heir” she was really harsh towards everyone in her court, even her family. But in this one we get to see a change of heart–sort of. I did enjoy seeing how she acted towards the members of the council, she doesn’t take BS from anyone, and I think that is a good quality to have when you are becoming queen of a country. But, since everything that happen with her mom, her brother, and well now with the rest of the selection is good to see her more humble towards them, and I believe that her change of heart made her see who was the best choice for her on the selection.

Now, her prince consort wasn’t a surprise for me. I kind of saw that happening in “The Heir” I won’t spoil it for you, but her choice is going to blow your mind.

Overall, I gave this book a 4/5 stars just because I wish she could’ve describe better the relationship between the Eadlyn and her prince consort. I felt like she didn’t give us enough insight on their relationship–bringing the book to an end way too soon.  However, this book is short and simple, nothing overbearing and not too many issues to overcome. I would definitely recommend this series if you haven’t read it, it will consume your body, soul and mind.
