December 2016 Releases

ANTICIPATED RELEASES

Hey guys!

Every month I post the books that I’m most excited about that are going to be released. For December I’m bringing you two exciting releases. Let’s check them out:


Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes

Release Date: December 13th, 2016

Crystal StormAn epic clash between gods and mortals threatens to tear Mytica apart . . . and prove that not even the purest of love stands a chance against the strongest of magic.

MAGNUS and CLEO are forced to test the strength of their love when Gaius returns to Mytica claiming he’s no longer the King of Blood but a changed man seeking redemption.

LUCIA, pregnant with the child of a Watcher, has escaped the clutches of the unhinged fire god. Her powers are dwindling as she goes forth to fulfill a prophecy that will keep her baby safe . . . but could mean her demise.

JONAS treks back to Mytica with a plan to overtake Amara, but fate takes hold when he runs into the beautiful Princess Lucia and joins her on her perilous journey.

AMARA has taken the Mytican throne, but with no way to unleash the water magic trapped within her stolen crystal, she’ll never be able to seize glory and get sweet revenge.

And what kind of darkness will descend–and who will be safe–after Prince Ashur reveals the dangerous price he paid to cheat death?

Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill

Release Date: December 27th, 2016

Ever the HuntedSeventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, the legendary bounty hunter for the King of Malam—that is, until her father is murdered. Now outcast and alone and having no rights to her father’s land or inheritance, she seeks refuge where she feels most safe: the Ever Woods. When Britta is caught poaching by the royal guard, instead of facing the noose she is offered a deal: her freedom in exchange for her father’s killer.

However, it’s not so simple.

The alleged killer is none other than Cohen McKay, her father’s former apprentice. The only friend she’s ever known. The boy she once loved who broke her heart. She must go on a dangerous quest in a world of warring kingdoms, mad kings, and dark magic to find the real killer. But Britta wields more power than she knows. And soon she will learn what has always made her different will make her a daunting and dangerous force.


Let me know if you guys are looking forward to any of these books this month! I really can’t wait to get my hands on them.

Until next time,

November 2016 Wrap Up!

November Wrap Up

Hey guys!

This month sure did zoom past us. It definitely felt that way to me at least. As Christmas fast approaches, so does the mall craziness (a.k.a my job). My stress levels are at an all time high this time of year.

Not only did I get strep throat earlier this month, but I’ve also not been able to go to the gym as much as I want! But on the good news side of things, the lovely Jenna from Reading with Jenna came to visit Toronto! It was such a fun week spending it with her. I took her to a lot of bookstores, and we definitely ate our way through the city! We also took time and watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with Joey from Thoughts and Afterthoughts. Finally we had a board game night with Joey and Maria from Big City Bookworm. It was definitely the highlight of my November!

Phew…. boy am I exhausted! So let’s get to how well I did in books!

Why I’m Waiting

For those of you who don’t know, Falling Kingdoms is my all time favorite YA fantasy series. So it comes as no surprise that I am pulling my hair out waiting for this book to hit the shelves! There was so much going on at the end of the last book that I NEED to know what happens next!!

Ruthlessly Sinister Villains | Top 10 Tuesday

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 Ruthlessly Sinister Villains.

 

You all know at least one ruthlessly sinister villain. Whether it be from your favorite book, or tv, or movie, or even from the comic books. Being an avid reader, I know many sinister villains. They can sometimes be one of my favorite characters. I find them complex and compelling to read, and without them our heroes can’t reach the greatness we know they will.

So without further ado, here are some ruthlessly sinister villains for all to enjoy!


10. Queen Irina from The Shadow Queen

The Shadow Queen

Queen Irina is not to be trusted. She married her dead sister’s husband to kill him and his children in order to be the rightful heir. But of course things never go as planned for the villain. The said children survived and are coming back to reclaim their kingdom and Queen Irina will stop at nothing, and I mean nothing, to keep that from happening!

 

9. Queen of Hearts from Splintered

Splintered

The Queen of Hearts is a tyrant in almost all her retellings. This one is no surprise! She thinks Wonderland is rightfully hers to rule with an iron thumb. But Alyssa doesn’t agree. The Queen of Hearts needs to be stopped from finding a permanent to host her sinister soul. But she will definitely not go down easy. Wonderland will never be the same again when she is gets through with it!

8. Draewulf from Storm Siren

Storm Siren

Draewulf is just plain evil. He will cut you open and hop into your body to overtake your soul. Of course like all villains, his plan is to take over the world. Which means he must get rid of all the Elementals left living, including our heroine Nym. No land is safe once Draewulf takes over, and the best part is, no one even knows what he looks like. Suprise!

7. Queen Olympias from Legacy of Kings

Legacy of Kings

 

Queen Olympias is just plain crazy. Not only does she prance around doing spiritual spells and incantations, but she also plays with snakes. And by play, I mean she lets them bite her and such. She will stop at nothing to get her son, Alexander, his rightful spot on the throne. Even if that means she has to kill everyone to do so, including her daughter.

6. Manon from Heir of Fire

Heir of Fire

Now I know Manon is not the true villain of the Throne of Glass series, but she is being used by one. It doesn’t help that she has razor sharp teeth and finger nails and comes with her own squad of other ruthless witches and their dragon companions. They feed off scared humans, piece by piece. I wouldn’t want to cross paths with her, that’s for sure!

5. King Gaius from Throne of Glass

Falling Kingdoms

 

King Gaius is nothing but cold and ruthless. All he wants is to be the ruler of pretty much everything. He had no trouble taking over two other kingdoms, including killing everyone that got in his way. He even goes as far as to use his only children to achieve this. From public beheadings, to behind the scenes murder and torture, King Gaius has done it all.

4. The Darkling from Shadow and Bone

Shadow and Bone

The Darkling doesn’t come off as the villain in the first book. He makes you fall in love with him and when you least expect it shit hits the fan! He wants Ravka and everywhere else he can get his grubby hands on to live in the Fold, a perpetually dark and dangerous place. Thankfully for our resident sun summoner. What better way to fight off the darkness, then with some light!

 

3. Voldemort from Harry Potter

HP and the Deathly Hollows

 

Voldemort is probably one of the most famous book villains there ever was. He wants to be the most powerful wizard there ever was. The only thing standing in his way is the child he couldn’t kill oh so many years before. But that won’t stop him from coming back and finishing the job. Voldermort leaves a trail of death wherever he goes and with his dark army of wizards behind him, our heroes better get together and be prepared to fight back!

2. Talis from The Scorpion Rules

The Scorpion Rules

 

If you want to talk about ruthless then meet Talis. He is a 400 year old artificial intelligence that currently runs the world we call Earth. Although his intentions are well, like stopping the world from warring, or rationing off water supply, doesn’t mean he’s not opposed to blowing up a city or country to do so. He even goes as far as taking children hostages from all the royals and rulers of the Earth to prevent them from making big moves. Just think, one moment you’re living your life, and then the next Talis blows up it up. No thank you.

1. Jackal from Red Rising

Red Rising

 

I’ve saved the most sinister for last. The Jackal is by far the grimiest, dirtiest, creepy, calculating, conniving villain I have ever known. In the first book he wants to win no matter what. Even if it means killing in the most ruthless ways including cannibalism. The second book is all about building trust and conniving his way to the top. And the final book has him executing all his planning and going behind everyone’s back to achieve ultimate domination.


Well there you have it! Top 10 Ruthlessly Sinister Villains. What are some of your favorite villains?

Until next time,

LINKS: Good Reads | Amazon | Indigo | Book Depository

The Darkest MagicModern-day Toronto: Sisters Crystal and Becca Hatcher are reunited after reclaiming the Bronze Codex and narrowly escaping death.

COVER 🌟🌟🌟           PLOT 🌟🌟🌟🌟

CHARACTERS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟    ROMANCE 🌟🌟🌟

WRITING 🌟🌟🌟🌟        WORLD 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


The Good

The Darkest Magic by Morgan Rhodes is the second novel in the Spirits and Thieves Trilogy. It is part of the companion series to Falling Kingdoms (my favorite YA fantasy series EVER!). It picks up right after the events of the first book. Crys and Becca are being secluded into hiding with the Bronze Codex, Farrell is diving deeper into the Markus King cult while trying not to go crazy with his dead brother crowding his thoughts, and Maddox back in Mytica is on a journey to overthrow Valoria from the throne.

I found this time that the characters had more time to be fleshed out and better developed. I can see a lot of growth with Becca and Crys. I love their fighting spirit and not taking no for an answer. But my favorite character overall is Maddox. You can see major growth with his character as he learns more and more about what his powers are actually capable of doing.

I like that Morgan sticks with her usual fast paced writing style. Everything flowed nicely and each character has their own individual voice and speech patterns. There was a never a dull moment and the descriptions didn’t take away from the story as a whole.

The plot is a bit finicky for me in this one. To be honest I might be on the opposite side of the majority when I say I look forward to Maddox’s POV the most. I am absolutely loving the history of Mytica. All the lies and betrayals, why Valoria and Cleiona are the way they are is just so fascinating to me. Although the modern day Toronto is a nice addition to the Spirits and Thieves series, I definitely enjoy the Mytican parts more.

The world building keeps getting more and more expansive. It’s nice to see that Morgan doesn’t stay inside the box with Mytica. We are finally getting more history and story behind the world I love so much. And that ending though…. I don’t know how I am going to wait another year to find out what it all means!

The Bad

Here comes the parts I like talking about the least. I didn’t find much wrong with The Darkest Magic, but it definitely doesn’t compare to my beloved Falling Kingdoms series!

First off I found some of the dialogue between characters to be a bit cheesy and cringe-worthy. Especially when Crys and Farrell are interacting with each other, or whenever Becca opens her mouth. (Ahhh, that sounds mean). I definitely click more with the way the Mytican characters interact with each other more then the modern day characters.

Finally, the romance is just not working for me. I definitely don’t like Crys and Farrell as a couple. They don’t seem to fit well with each other, and I don’t see how they are going to get past what Farrell did at the end of the first book. Becca and Maddox are way too insta-lovey for me. Their love seems to be a tad bit too kiddish to me. On the plus side of things, even though their really wasn’t any romance between them, I quite enjoy and ship Barbas and Liana together!


Ok, that’s it. That ending nearly killed me. I am dying to know what happens next. The wait is going to be killer. Let me know what you guys thought of The Darkest Magic by Morgan Rhodes! I would love to hear your opinions as well!

Until next time,

Morgan RhodesMorgan Rhodes lives in Ontario, Canada. As a child, she always wanted to be a princess — the kind that knows how to wield a sharp sword to help save both kingdoms and princes from fire-breathing dragons and dark wizards. Instead, she became a writer, which is just as good and much less dangerous. Along with writing, Morgan enjoys photography, travel, reality TV, and is an extremely picky, yet voracious reader of all kinds of books. Under another pen name, she’s a national bestselling author of many paranormal novels. Falling Kingdoms is her first high fantasy.

Must Reads By the End of 2016 | Top 5 Wednesday [#32]

NEW-TOP-5-WEDNESDAY

Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.

This week’s topic is Top 5 Must Reads By the End of 2016.

The end of 2016 is fast approaching. Only 4 and a half months left. How crazy is that? The second half of the year has some amazing books being released that I am super pumped for. I’ve been waiting all year for these ones and I MUST READ THEM BEFORE 2016 IS OVER. So let’s get into them!


5. Midnight Star by Marie Lu

The Midnight StarThe thrilling finale to the New York Times bestselling Young Elites series from “hit factory” Marie Lu.

There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.

Adelina Amouteru is done suffering. She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory. Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest her cruelty only grows. The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all that she’s achieved.

Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds when a new danger appears, putting not only Adelina at risk, but every Elite and the very world they live in. In order to save herself and preserve her empire, Adelina and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest—though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.

4. Boy Robot by Simon Curtis

Boy RobotSeventeen-year-old Isaak discovers the truth about his origin and the underground forces that must come together to fight against a secret government organization formed to eradicate those like him in this high-octane science fiction debut.

There once was a boy who was made, not created.

In a single night, Isaak’s life changed forever.

His adoptive parents were killed, a mysterious girl saved him from a team of soldiers, and he learned of his own dark and destructive origin.

An origin he doesn’t want to believe, but one he cannot deny.

Isaak is a Robot: a government-made synthetic human, produced as a weapon and now hunted, marked for termination.

He and the Robots can only find asylum with the Underground—a secret network of Robots and humans working together to ensure a coexistent future.

To be protected by the Underground, Isaak will have to make it there first. But with a deadly military force tasked to find him at any cost, his odds are less than favorable.

Now Isaak must decide whether to hold on to his humanity and face possible death…or to embrace his true nature in order to survive, at the risk of becoming the weapon he was made to be.

3. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Empire of StormsThe long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don’t.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

2. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked KingdomKaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world.

1. Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes

Crystal StormAn epic clash between gods and mortals threatens to tear Mytica apart . . . and prove that not even the purest of love stands a chance against the strongest of magic.

MAGNUS and CLEO are forced to test the strength of their love when Gaius returns to Mytica claiming he’s no longer the King of Blood but a changed man seeking redemption.

LUCIA, pregnant with the child of a Watcher, has escaped the clutches of the unhinged fire god. Her powers are dwindling as she goes forth to fulfill a prophecy that will keep her baby safe . . . but could mean her demise.

JONAS treks back to Mytica with a plan to overtake Amara, but fate takes hold when he runs into the beautiful Princess Lucia and joins her on her perilous journey.

AMARA has taken the Mytican throne, but with no way to unleash the water magic trapped within her stolen crystal, she’ll never be able to seize glory and get sweet revenge.

And what kind of darkness will descend–and who will be safe–after Prince Ashur reveals the dangerous price he paid to cheat death?


IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN OR HEARD OF ANY OF THESE LOVELY BOOKS, THEN YOU’VE BEEN LIVING UNDER YOUR ROCK FOR FAR TOO LONG AND SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF.

I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. What books must you read by the end of this year? Let me know!
