Non-Spoiler Book Review | “The Star-Touched Queen” by Roshani Chokshi

This book was a challenge for me, it was a slow read for me, and considering on how I can read a b25203675ook in two days or less, this one took me a while. Princess Mayavati is a really a complicated character, the story line is so complicated, and I didn’t understand most of it. It took me three days to get through the first 100 pages. But after that, the book did pick up, and honestly enough, it has sort of the same story line as “WiNTERSONG,” by S. Jae-Jones, where the main character gets married and then the rest of the story is a fight for her marriage.
I gave this book 3.5 stars. Amar was a distant character as well, I’m telling you strong Wintersong vibes. Throughout the whole book, I couldn’t get to actually know him. Was he, in the end, a demon or not? No wonder Maya did what she did to him in the almost end of the story, he wasn’t honest with her. After she gets her memories back, things become more complicated, and then Nritti was a complicated af character. I didn’t understand her at all. Now, Gauri is interesting, I want to see her in the next book, I feel that she’s going to end up with the kid that turned out to be king, and that excites me.

Non-Spoiler Book Review – The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.

4.5/5 stars.

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!

The Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

4.5/5 stars.

This was really amazing read. I’d never read a book with these types of characters on it. The whole scenery of this book was new for me. I didn’t know how to pronounce most of the words written on this book, but it was a really nice change. I’24934065ve been craving something like this for a long while now, I’m glad I’ve found this book.

The whole new culture presented in this book is one I’d never crossed path with before on books, so the fact that I got to do that now, for the first time, was really intriguing. All of the characters here were unique, things I’d never heard of–situations I couldn’t imagine begin to form of this wonderful story.

Amani, the desert girl, needs to get out of her home town, because she just can’t stand living there, and now that she has found the opportunity, she won’t let it go. Jin opens up a world full of danger and possibilities, a world full of hope and wonders, one that Amani has never been able to even imagine. The way the author describes the characters and most of the action scenes, is very powerful, you would submerge into a world of danger with the characters themselves.

I ask you to please join them in this new incredible adventure, where things you never imagine would occur.

Passenger by Akexandra Bracken

4/5 stars.

I haven’t d20983362one a review in a while. Is not that I haven’t been reading, is more of the fact that I’m lazy af! (lol). If you click on the image you can see my spoiler review on goodreads!

Anyhow, this new story I have just finished reading has a lot to do with time travel. I haven’t read a time travel book, since forever–and I can’t remember the last time I read one this good. Oh, and BTW, the way this books smells is amazing. I am planning on making a perfume out of it (lol). (I laugh at my own jokes).

Henrietta Spencer–Etta–does not know that her life is about to change in one night, this book is full adventure, romance and good historical fiction. When Nicholas comes into the picture things get way more interesting. I was not expecting half the things that came up on this book, and to be honest I haven’t read any other books on Bracken, but this one is one that definitively had me super excited and always wanting to know what’s going on in the next chapter.

Nicholas and Etta get into a world where just a couple of days before Etta didn’t knew existed. I also love the fact that Nicholas is a sailor, I think that is super sexy, and so chivalrous. They are so beautiful together, and besides the impossibilities of the time, I think that they would be perfect together.

I look forward to reading the other book in this series, Bracken has managed to keep intrigued–which is always a challenge with me–can’t wait. And if you love to read about time travel, historical fiction, and romance, then this is the perfect book for you.

Seven ways we lie by Riley Redgate

4.5/5 stars

I think that this book is really down to earth. I love how the author makes real life problems presentable in this book, and the fact that she doesn’t sugar coated makes it even better.

Seven characters, with all 26240663their points of views,makes the book a little bit hard to keep up with; however, each one of them have a unique quality (or sin) that makes each one of them different. Seven ways we lie, is all about controlling ones emotion, and knowing that the real truth of our beings lies within us. Riley shows us that is always better to come clean, than not. I think that in this particular book many of the characters have qualities that we all posses–yet we are afraid to admit.

I met the author at Barnes & Noble the other day, and she’s wonderful. She has a great personality, and she’s down to earth. If you haven’t read this book, give it a try, is a really good read!

Me Before You By Jojo Moyes

5/5 stars
I have no words to describe the feelings I have for this book. Scratch that, I have too many. I mean why? There are some books that come to you and you forget their story as soon as you finish reading it; but there are books that when you are in the first page you just can’t let go, and when you are done the story stays with you forever. Me Before You was the exact same thing for me. I wish I’d never read it, but at the same time I couldn’t read it sooner. This is the type of story that I wish I haven’t read, but that I still can’t understand how did I take to long to start it. I read in one night, literally started at 12 am, and by 5 am I was done. Imagine my boss’ face when I got to work all red eyed and with dark circles under my eyes–he thought someone died–if only he knew.

Jojo Moyes is another author that I’ll keep under the heartbreaking category, along side with John Green, Veronica Roth, Markus Zusak,C. J. Roberts, Colleen Hoover, etc.

“You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.” -Jojo Moyes.

When I started this book, I’d never expected it to be like this. Heartbreaking, devastating story, with a beautiful message. Will Traynor, a really complicated man, with a past life full of life, and a devastating future, has been in a wheelchair for two years now, he needs assistance. That’s where Louisa Clark, she’s his care giver. The women is a rainbow of colors, literally. Her clothes, her life, her family–everything about her is just so bright. The story is just unbelievably amazing, it only took 5 hours to break my heart, the characters were so powerful, their emotions seem real, and they got to transfer the power of what they were feeling really well.

“I will never, ever regret the things I’ve done. Because most days, all you have are places in your memory that you can go to.” -Jojo Moyes.

I can’t pretend like this book didn’t break my heart, because it did, and I’m the type of person that will wear my heart on my sleeve, I can’t hide my emotions well enough. So I went to work the next day, people were worried. How could I tell them what really happened? I just told them a close friend of mine died. I had to come up with something.

In overall, this book will make you laugh, cry, mad, sad, joyful, and many emotions that I have no time to describe. Give it a try, you will not regret it.
