{Review+Giveaway} THE BOOK OF M by @PengShepherd

{Review+Giveaway} THE BOOK OF M by @PengShepherd

  The Book of M is a dystopian whirlwind adventure by author Pen g Shepherd. The Book of M was a really unique story. I hate using the word “unique” but I truly feel that is the best way to describe this book. It was also completely engaging, and it kept my interest from the first page until the last. Set in a world where people start losing their shadows for some unknown reason. Once their shadow disappears their memories begin to leave them as well, which is completely terrifying.  (that aspect of the story kind of reminded me of the end of Avengers infinity war when If you like thriller mysteries, then you have to grab The Book of M, because this book will keep you guessing until the end. I think The Book of M would make a fantastic movie plot. I don’t want to get into too many of the plot specifics because this is a story that really builds on itself, and revealing any particular detail can… Read more »

{Review} The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas @SJMaas @bloomsburykids

{Review} The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas @SJMaas @bloomsburykids

Hey guys! It’s me, the girl that took forever to start the Throne of Glass Series. I wrote my super late to the party review of the first book, Throne of Glass HERE so you can check that out of if you are late to the party like I am. But I totally loved the first book, and I decided that the next book I would read would be The Assassin’s Blade, which is a bind up of all the prequel novellas. I should start off by saying I am kind of Leary of a book of novellas, but it was recommended to me to read them either first or near the start of the series, and boy am I glad that I did. I completely agree. I think The Assassin’s Blade would be best enjoyed if you read it either before or right after the first book. I loved The Assassin’s Blade. It helped me get to know Celaena so much better! Plus, we got to see and fall in… Read more »

{Review} Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas @SJMaas @bloomsburykids

I know I am super late to the party here, but holy cow! I now know why Throne of Glass got so much hype. And trust me, it lived up to all of the hype and then some. Throne of Glass is a young adult fantasy by Sarah J. Maas and I already know it is going to be one of my favorite YA fantasies EVER. I may be the last person to jump on the Throne of Glass bandwagon, but I am fully on board now. I loved this book, pretty much instantly. In fact, I was downright mean to anyone that interrupted me while reading. And my attention span was complete rubbish when I had to walk away from the book and function in the real world. It has been ages since I was unable to focus in school or at work because I was way too busy thinking about a book. But Throne of Glass completely grabbed me and did not let go. Even now, I am… Read more »

{Review} The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall @PenguinTeen @MaggieEHall

{Review} The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall @PenguinTeen @MaggieEHall

Have you ever picked up a book and by the time you were finished, you were convinced that the author crafted the book just for you? That was what happened to be with The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall. It was like the author poked around in my head, and pulled out a bunch of winning elements for me, mashed them all together and popped out a story that was sure to make me fall in love with it. Everyone is comparing The Conspiracy of Us to The DaVinci Code, and I get that comparison, but I feel like it was even more than that. It felt like The DaVinci Code mixed with Tomb Raider mixed with the biggest international secret society of all. Plus the focus was on Alexander the Great, who I think is a fascinating historical figure. (and yes, I do know that a ton of “facts” surrounding Alexander have been fictionalized and sensationalized throughout history, but that just makes him all the more interesting in… Read more »
