So I haven’t felt like reviewing any of the books I have read lately. I am not even sure I can remember enough details of any of them to review them. Some of them are from way back in January. Instead of reviewing each book, I am going to list them here and let you know whether I think it is worth taking a glance at. Part 1 here.
I love this book. I love this series! You should totally read the Heir Chronicles if you haven’t yet! See my reviews of the first three books here, here, and here. This book is about Jonah Kinlock who survived the Thorn Hill Massacre, an attack on a Weir community. All of the survivors of the attack are either dead or changed forever. The magic of the weir stones has changed the survivors, so their magic is unpredictable and often dangerous, They all have to live at a school for the gifted run by Gabriel Mandrake. Jonah is one of the assassins in Nightshade, which hunts and eliminates undead survivors of the massacre. READ IT! The whole series! Worth it!
“She needed a world without so many standards and restrictions and expectations–one more friendly to a girl who thought differently from other people.”
The last book in the Heir Chronicles series. Worth reading! Go check out the entire series. This book takes place where the last book left off. The characters are relate-able, the settings are vivid, the magic is amazing. Lots of action.
“Words can hurt, but sometimes it’s the words you never got to say that hurt the most.”
“But sometimes we get the maddest at the people we love the most.”
“It doesn’t make sense to dwell on things you can’t do anything about.”
This book was really interesting. It was a quick read also, I think I finished it in a few hours. It is written in the form of a letter from Gemma to her captor Ty. Gemma was kidnapped from the airport in Bangkok and taken to the Australian Outback. Ty has been obsessed with Gemma since she was young, and took years to build them a compound in the middle of the desert, so that no one will find them, and so that she can’t readily escape. Definitely worth reading.
“Lets face it, you did steal me. But you saved my life too. And somewhere in the middle, you showed me a place so different and beautiful, I can never get it out of my mind. And I can’t get you out of there either. You’re stuck in my brain like my own blood vessels.”
“And it’s hard to hate someone once you understand them.”
“When the darkness gets easier, you know you’re sinking deeper, becoming dead yourself.”
“How long will you keep me?” I asked.
You shrugged. “Forever, of course.”
THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD! GO READ IT NOW! I don’t even like sci-fi normally. I even made my non-reader husband read this, and he liked it also. It is not every day that a book surprises me, and I was completely surprised by this book. Just when I thought I knew what was happening, I was totally wrong! I love how the book is written in weird formats like instant messages and surveillance tape footage, it really made this book interesting for me. I love books that have interesting formats and this one was really different. This book is about Ezra and Kady whose planet gets destroyed in an attack by space ships. The majority of the book takes place while they are on getaway ships trying to evade the attacking spaceship which is pursuing them so that there are no witnesses to the attack. The problem is Kady and Ezra are on different ships! There are 3 ships evading the attacking ship and of course they end up on two separate ones! They are both really sarcastic and adorable, which I love. OMG my fave character is AIDEN, the psycho AI on the ship. The book had space ships, explosions, awesome characters, the best villain, and zombies (sort of) what’s not to love? Worth reading.
“I am frequently underestimated. I think it’s because I’m short.”
“You have me. Until ever last star in the galaxy dies. You have me.”
“Am I not merciful?” This is something I say alllllllll the time now, to the annoyance of my husband. 😉
“Perhaps bravery is simply the face humanity wraps around its collective madness.”
“He presses the triggers. And like roses in his hands, death blooms.”
“Miracles are statistical improbabilities. And fate is an illusion humanity uses to comfort itself in the dark. There are no absolutes in life, save death.”
“Most people would say I’m pretty cold, but I think of it more as…private. People are always saying “how are you?” to each other, and I guess I don’t see why I should answer such a personal question for just anyone.”
PS: Have you read any of these books? Are you running out to buy them right now so we can talk about them? Yes? Good! I can wait!
