My Month in Books: April Wrap-Up

I read a lot more this month than I was expecting to. I had a bit of a busy month as I had to review for my AP Testing that happening in the beginning of May. I won’t be very active in the next couple of weeks though I do have some post scheduled so I’m not totally MIA. April was a great reading month. I read nine even though I only thought I would be able to read two. I have become more than a little bit obsessed with historical romances over the past month. There a lot of fun to read and go by so quickly I was able to squeeze in quite a few. So here is my month in books.  Read More »

You lunge towards the door and grab the package ripping through the paper and promptly sit and read the book that was encased within.

Daughter Of The Pirate King Review

daughterofthepiratekingsTitle: Daughter Of The Pirate King

Author: Tricia Levenseller

Release Date: February 28, 2017

Publisher: Feiwal And Friends

Pages: 320 Pages

Rating:2000px-4-5_stars-svg

Overall Thoughts:

I had high hopes going into this book and let me tell you I was not disappointed. This book promised me pirates, and a badass main character and I definitely got a lot of both. This being the first book I’ve read that had dealt solely with pirates, I’ve come to the conclusion that we need more pirate books. One: pirates are extremely good looking and you can never have too many cute fictional boys (and girls) running around and two: they are entertaining. I read this book in one sitting and I had the most fun reading this than I’ve had in awhile. If you haven’t already definitely go pick this up you’ll love it!

Synopsis:

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.
Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

Dawn Study Review

dawnstudy1Title: Dawn Study

Author: Maria V. Snyder

Release Date: January 31, 2017

Publisher: MIRA

Page Number: 478

Ratings: 5_stars-svg

Overall Thoughts:

After a month and a half of dragging my feet, I finally finished Dawn Study!!! It was a GREAT conclusion, this saga all began with Poison Study and now almost ten years, 3 series and nine books later it’s over. It’s kind of bittersweet because we have grown with all the characters, starting with them when they were in their late teens and early twenties (Yelena, everyone else was like 10 years older) and now it ends with her in her 30’s. It is an awesome classic high fantasy and if you haven’t read this or any of her books yet, you’re truly missing out.read-the-book

No pressure though.

Synopsis:

Despite the odds, Yelena and Valek have forged an irrevocable bond and a family that transcends borders. Now, when their two homelands stand on the brink of war, they must fight with magic and cunning to thwart an Ixian plot to invade Sitia.

Yelena seeks to break the hold of the insidious Theobroma that destroys a person’s resistance to magical persuasion. But the Cartel is determined to keep influential citizens and Sitian diplomats in thrall and Yelena at bay. With every bounty hunter after her, Yelena is forced to make a dangerous deal.

With might and magic, Valek peels back the layers of betrayal surrounding the Commander. At its rotten core lies a powerful magician and his latest discovery. The fate of all rests upon two unlikely weapons. One may turn the tide. The other could spell the end of everything.

April TBR: The Shortest One There Ever Was

I’m bad at reading books on my TBR, I think part of it stems from my deep rooted subconscious tendency to not do what people tell me to. No matter how excited I am to read a book, putting it on a TBR is a surefire way for me not to read it but let’s see if this month will be any different. April for me is going to be a very busy month, I’m taking both the SAT and the ACT this month. AP tests start on the first of May and I’m taking five, so I have to spend this month cramming pieces of history and studying for physics so I can manage a decent score. Since this month is going to be so hectic, I’m going to be taking it a little bit easy and so my TBR will be a little short this month. Read More »

My Month in Books: March Wrap-Up

March was an average reading month, I read a total of 8 books, which isn’t bad but definitely not as much as I was hoping for. I read quite a range of genres this month, starting from nonfiction to high fantasy to historical romance. I didn’t rate any of my books as less than three stars so I was pretty happy with the quality of the books I read. So without further ado here is my month of March, told in books.

Ikram’s Theory of Bookish Evolution

It’s not so much a theory than it is just an observation. Most of us all learned to read at around 5-6. A select few of us got sucked into the book world and have become bona fide book nerd, but although we may have always loved reading books, our tastes in books range far and wide and as we aged (like a fine wine) our reading preferences changed and evolved. I am here to present one such case study. Today we will all see how my reading tastes have changed through my short but spirited seventeen years.

Spring Equinox Reccomendations

During the Winter Solstice last yer I recommended a bunch of short books for y’all to read since it is the shortest day in the year. Today is the Spring Equinox, where both the night and day are each roughly the same length so in honor of the Equinox today I want to recommend to you some average length books (300-400 pages) that you can easily read in a day if you wished to do so. Read More »
