That is all fine and dandy, but sometimes we want something a little different. So here is my list of books that are set outside of the U.S.A!

Books I Don’t Talk About Enough | Top 10 Tuesday [#31]

TOP-10-TUESDAY-NEW

Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday weekly fun on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is Top 10 Books I Don’t Talk About Enough!

As you all know, there are quite a few books on my blog that I talk about A LOT. Most of you call me out on it too. But in case you don’t read my blog regularly, some of those books include: Falling Kingdoms, Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda, The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley and Red Rising just to name a few. BUT those are not the only books I love. So today I am given the opportunity to ditch those books and talk about ones that I neglect to talk about on a weekly basis with you guys. So without further ado, here they are!


10. Soulless by Gail Carriger

SoullessFirst, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire–and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London’s high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

9. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Steel HeartTen years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills.

Nobody fights the Epics…nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them.

And David wants in. He wants Steelheart — the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David’s father. For years, like the Reckoners, David’s been studying, and planning — and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience.

He’s seen Steelheart bleed. And he wants revenge.

8. The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

The Witch HunterElizabeth Grey is one of the king’s best witch hunters, devoted to rooting out witchcraft and doling out justice. But when she’s accused of being a witch herself, Elizabeth is arrested and sentenced to burn at the stake.

Salvation comes from a man she thought was her enemy. Nicholas Perevil, the most powerful and dangerous wizard in the kingdom, offers her a deal: he will save her from execution if she can break the deadly curse that’s been laid upon him.

But Nicholas and his followers know nothing of Elizabeth’s witch hunting past–if they find out, the stake will be the least of her worries. And as she’s thrust into the magical world of witches, ghosts, pirates, and one all-too-handsome healer, Elizabeth is forced to redefine her ideas of right and wrong, of friends and enemies, and of love and hate.

7. Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

Legacy of KingsImagine a time when the gods turn a blind eye to the agony of men, when the last of the hellions roam the plains and evil stirs beyond the edges of the map. A time when cities burn, and in their ashes, empires rise.

Alexander, Macedonia’s sixteen-year-old heir, is on the brink of discovering his fated role in conquering the known world but finds himself drawn to a newcomer…

Katerina must navigate the dark secrets of court life while hiding her own mission: kill the Queen. But she doesn’t account for her first love…

Jacob will go to unthinkable lengths to win Katerina, even if it means having to compete for her heart with Hephaestion, a murderer sheltered by the prince.

And far across the sea, Zofia, a Persian princess and Alexander’s unmet betrothed, wants to alter her destiny by seeking the famed and deadly Spirit Eaters.

6. A Book of Spirits and Thieves by Morgan Rhodes

A Book of Spirits and ThievesCrystal Hatcher, Modern-day Toronto: It’s a normal afternoon in her mother’s antique bookshop when Crys witnesses the unthinkable: her little sister Becca collapses into a coma after becoming mesmerized by a mysterious book written in an unrecognizable language.

Maddox Corso, Ancient Mytica: Maddox Corso doesn’t think much of it when he spots an unfamiliar girl in his small village. Until, that is, he realizes that she is a spirit, and he is the only one who can see or hear her. Her name is Becca Hatcher, and she needs Maddox to help get her home.

Farrell Grayson, Modern-day Toronto: Rich and aimless Farrell Grayson is thrilled when the mysterious leader of the ultra-secret Hawkspear Society invites him into the fold. But when he learns exactly what he has to do to prove himself, Farrell starts to question everything he thought he knew about family, loyalty, and himself….

Fate has brought these young people together, but ancient magic threatens to rip them apart

5. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

The Orphan QueenWilhelmina has a hundred identities.

She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.

She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others.

4. Lark Rising by Sandra Waugh

Lark RisingLark has foreseen two things—she will fall for a young man with sage green eyes,and he will kill her.

Sixteen-year-old Lark Carew is happiest close to home, tending her garden and gathering herbs for medicines. But when her Sight warns her that monsters called Troths will soon invade her village, Lark is summoned on a journey to seek help from the legendary Riders of Tarnec. Little does she suspect that one of the Riders, Gharain, is the very man who has haunted her visions. Or that the people of Tarnec have called her there for another reason: Lark is the Guardian of Life, the first of four Guardians who must awaken their powers to recover four stolen amulets. Together, the amulets—Life, Death, Dark, and Light—keep the world in Balance. To take back the Life amulet, Lark will have to discover her true inner strength and give in to a love that she swears will be her downfall.

3. Storm Siren by Mary Weber

Storm SirenIn a world at war, a slave girl’s lethal curse could become one kingdom’s weapon of salvation. If the curse—and the girl—can be controlled.

As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn’t merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth — meaning, she shouldn’t even exist.

Standing on the auction block beneath smoke-drenched mountains, Nym faces her fifteenth sell. But when her hood is removed and her storm-summoning killing curse revealed, Nym is snatched up by a court advisor and given a choice: be trained as the weapon Faelen needs to win the war, or be killed.

Choosing the former, Nym is unleashed into a world of politics, bizarre parties, and rumors of an evil more sinister than she’s being prepared to fight . . . not to mention the handsome trainer whose dark secrets lie behind a mysterious ability to calm every lightning strike she summons.

But what if she doesn’t want to be the weapon they’ve all been waiting for?

2. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Snow Like AshesSixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

1. Splintered by A.G. Howard

SplinteredAlyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.

When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.

Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag | Books at Dawn

Burn,-Rewrite,-Reread

Hey guys!

I was tagged by Rae over at Bookmark Chronicles to do the Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag. This looked like such a fun tag to do which may put me in some hot waters if a lot of my favorite books show up! So thank you Rae for all this wonderful torture I’m sure I am about to go through!

Rules:
  • Randomly choose 3 books. (Use the ‘random’ option on your Goodreads read shelf. Thanks for that tip, it makes this so much easier)
  • For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread. (A lot like Kiss, Marry, Kill.)
  • Repeat until you completed three rounds (or five) 🙂

Okay, let’s do this!


ROUND 1

BURN: The Iron Trial by Holly Black/Cassandra Clare. I just did not like this book. In my opinion it is a horrible middle grade.

REWRITE: The Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman. Don’t get me wrong, I liked this book a lot. But I think I would rewrite the first quarter of it and lay off the heavy romance nonsense that was there.

REREAD: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. This book was great! Everything I could have wanted in a book with Superheroes and Super Villains.


ROUND 2

BURN: Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger. No shock there. This book was boring as hell!

REWRITE: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I would rewrite the last quarter of this book. This three quarters are fantastic! But that last part when they’re in the cave and she is paraded around as a slave just made me so uncomfortable….

REREAD: Soulless by Gail Carriger. This was my first ever steampunk paranormal fantasy I’ve read and I loved it. It is well written and smart, and I loved all the characters too!


ROUND 3

BURN: Wayward Vol. 1 by Jim Zub. Sorry Wayward… I loved your story and your art, but up against these two, you’re going to lose.

REWRITE: Saga Vol. 1 by Brian k. Vaughan. I don’t know what part of this graphic novel I would attempt to rewrite because it was so freaking good, but I’m sure there is something I can add to it!

REREAD: The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson. This novel was brilliant and heart breaking. I would read it a thousand times over!


ROUND 4

I should have stopped at Round 3… this one is going to break my soul!

BURN: Saga Vol. 2 by Brian K. Vaughan. I’m so sorry Saga… you got the shit end of the stick this round! Nothing personal… keep on being your amazing self!

REWRITE: Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes. This is breaking my soul right now. This is one of my favorites from the Falling Kingdoms series and it’s absolute perfection. SO the only thing I will rewrite is the ending where a certain character I loved gets back stabbed… you know who Morgan!

REREAD: Golden Son by Pierce Brown. I literally just finished this book a couple days ago and man I was blown away! That ending needed to be read over and over again. Hot damn!


ROUND 5

BURN: Paper Towns by John Green. I hold no allegiances to Mr. Green, and although this is a good book, I might just have to burn it this round. Oops!

REWRITE: Rat Queens Vol. 2 by Kurtis J. Wiebe. This graphic novel had a lot of chapters on character back story, and I loved it. But I might rewrite and throw some more action sequences into the mix!

REREAD: The Secret Heeder by Fleur Camacho. One of my favorite sequels from an indie author I’ve read so far! I loved the time traveling adventure they went on this time around and would love to read it again sometime!


Man that was a tough tag to do, but oh so much fun! I hope you enjoyed my answers and not get offended by any of them. Let me know if you would have done anything differently, I’d love to know!

Japan

The Ronin's MistressOne of my favorite adult mystery series is the Sano Ichiro series by Laura Joh Rowland. It is set in feudal Japan and follows Sano Ichiro a police detective for the emperor. It is politically gripping, filled with loads of mystery and drama! You guys should check it out. Click the cover to head to the GoodReads page.

Russia

Shadow and BoneEven though it is not fully based on the real life Russia, Shadow and Bone from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo is very heavily Russian influenced.

Characters Who Are Booknerds | Top 10 Tuesday [4]

Top10Tuesday

Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday weekly fun on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is Characters Who Are Booknerds. I wasn’t always a big booknerd like I am now. I only really got into reading books avidly last year. Before then I would just read a book whenever I went on vacation, or only on the weekends, only amounting to a few books a year. But since being introduced to the Book Blogging/Booktuber community, you can never find me without a book. If I don’t have a physical book with me, I have my tablet with my e-books on it. I always thought being a booknerd was lame, but now I can’t get enough books.

So without further ado, here is my list:

10. Park from Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor and ParkIf you’ve read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, then you know how big of a comic book/graphic novel nerd Park is. There are all types of different booknerds, and as a avid comic book reader myself, I do believe it belongs in this topic!


9. Julian from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red QueenEven though Julian is a side character, he plays a big part in Mare’s time becoming a silver. He is the only one that truly appreciates books and book learning in the story. While everyone is all about their powers and strengths, he relies on information and education!


8. Hazel from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

11870085For obvious reasons I have included Hazel in this list because if you’ve read The Fault in Our Stars then you know her favorite book plays a huge part in the storyline. Without it, we miss out on so many good scenes from the story.


7. Spencer or Aria from Pretty Little Liars by Sara Sheperd

Pretty Little LiarsIt’s been a really long time since the last time I read this book, but I’m pretty sure Spencer was the academic book nerd, or was it Aria? Maybe Spencer was the academic know it all and Aria was the actually booknerd who just truly loves reading? Correct me if I’m wrong!


6. Alexia from Soulless by Gail Carriger

SoullessIt’s stated many times in the book that Alexia finds the most comfort when she is in the library. She also happens to be a very well read Lady in her era where many of the women are solely focused on getting married and fashion trends.


5. Hermoine from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's StoneDo I even have to explain this one? Anyone who is anyone on this planet knows how much of a bookworm Hermoine is. Whether you’ve read the series or watched the movies you know this. Always getting good grades, lecturing Harry and Ron about school habits, and always the first to suggest doing research in the library’s restricted section!


4. Prince Dorian from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Crown of MidnightThis one and the next one go hand in hand together. Prince Dorian has numerous books in his possession, even lending Celaena some from his personal collection. It’s one of the biggest common interest that both of them have together.


3. Celaena from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of GlassLike I said above Celaena also makes the list. Her love for books is widely expressed in the story as well as her love for smutty romance novels. She is a night reader like myself. Always reading well into the night right before passing out!


2. Andrew from The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson

The Five Stages of Andrew BrawleyNot only is he creating his own graphic novel in the confines of his little storage closet he calls a home, but he is also caught reading some classic literature to Rusty on his hospital bed. It was a very touching element to have them bond over after such a tragedy.


1. Becca from A Book of Spirits and Thieves

A Book of Spirits and ThievesProbably the biggest book nerd on the list! Her mom owns a cool book shop in downtown Toronto, where she spends most of her time with her face in a book or working. She even gets sucked into a book that brings her to an alternated world! Now if only that could happen to me. For real. This needs to happen now.


Well there you have it. The Top 10 Characters Who Are Booknerds. Let me know what you guys think of my list and share with me which books you’ve read that have booknerd characters in them!!

Until next time,
