Exciting, intriguing, charming and edge-of-the-seat reading!

“Cinder” is the first book in the Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer. It is a beautiful retelling of the classic fairytale, Cinderella. I can begin to explain how much I appreciated this incredible novel πŸ™‚ . I loved the character’s developments, the thrilling plot and the stunning world Marissa Meyer builded. 

β€œEven in the Future the Story Begins with Once Upon a Time.”

“Cinder” is set in a futuristic world with the tale of a teenage cyborg who must fight for Earth’s survival against villains from outer space, the Lunars; a civilization brainwashed by a totalitarian leader in Luna, Queen Levana. After her world is caught between the mysteries of the hospital and the royal castle, she is forced to take decisions that will forever change her life and the sake of Earthens.

Fiction, Romance, Humor, Fantasy and High Fantasy

I began this blog on May (and it has been a sweet journey, especially the diving into bookstagram πŸ˜‰ )  but I figured I needed to share with you guys the highlights April reading brought!

April was an exciting month because I finished online classes at college (I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this times of struggle) and I was able to read some more than before and do some journaling. This year my goal is to read at least 8 or 10 books per month so I can achieve my goal of 100 books.

In April I read 10 books, but I will be diving into my top 5 books of the month πŸ˜€ . I read books from many genres as you can see by the title. It was such a rollercoaster of emotions in every single book. I laughed so much with many of them but I also cried a lot (shoutout to Crescent City) with the saddest endings or the most beautiful ones. I am also super excited for many sequels this books have!

Hopefully you will be able to add some of this incredible books to your TBR pile πŸ™‚ . Let’s get started…

Shadow and Bone has becomed one of my favorites reads this year.

Shadow and Bone is book one in the Grisha Trilogy. I was astounded when I read this book. I can’t even begin to explain how much I loved the world Leigh created, the fascinating characters and the storyline they followed. Leigh Bardugo’s writing style and the amazing universe she created is perfect (*cheff kiss*). The Grishaverse.

Leigh Bardugo created a whole world of fantasy that I could not stop myself from loving. This world is fulled of a magical group of people, the Grisha, who practice the Small Science: they manipulate different elements of nature as their own power. And it is in the nation of Ravka where a huge darkness and evil has divided the continent in two and left a sector of death and dread in its place, the Shadow Fold.

This book has everything I love: fantasy, horror, romance, suspense, action, and humor.

“Sorcery of Thorns” captivated my attention immediately after reading the storyline. Margaret Rogerson created a fantastic world in which libraries store dangerous grimoires full of dark power and books have a tendency to transform into deadly demonic beasts. (Can you see why I love it yet? ).

In this world, libraries function more like high security prisons built to contain and protect the world’s most dangerous books and weapons. I loved how this is a book about books and you’re able to see the authors love for them in her writing. The story begins so good that just the first pages had me reading non stop.

“Sorcery of Thorns” follows the adventures of the librarian Elisabeth Scrivener, when she ends up in the middle of a sabotage and is forced to work with her sworn enemy, Nathaniel Thorn, to unravel the mysteries and conspiracies regarding the crimes around town before the deadliest evil is summoned to the world. A single event has them searching for the true culprit in an effort to exonerate Elisabeth from the huge murder, and in so doing, she uncovers a much larger malevolent plot at hand.

This past year, I had the chance of reading many wonderful books. I also reached my goal of reading 65 books! This year, 2020, I am rooting for 100 books πŸ™‚ . Even if we are a few months into 2020 already, I had to share all this amazing books I discovered last year. All of this books are fiction books and I highly recommend each of them and their own sagas.

Many of the books in this list are part of a book series but I will be mentioning my favorite book from each incredible saga. Other books are stand-alones or will have their sequel this year (I’m over excited for all of the upcoming sequels πŸ˜€ ). So let’s get started…

Do you ever find one of those books that’s so surprising you can’t stop reading once you start? 

“Shatter me” was definitely like that for me. I think I read 60% of the book in one sit. And I have confirmed that a book that grips you and after reading it you wish you’d read it more slowly, then that is, without doubt, a good book.

“Shatter Me” has a completely new writing style that I hadn’t found before and it definitely is perfect for the reader to get to know the character’s feelings, thoughts and emotions throughout the book. Plus the great writing makes it an easy read and it is perfect for understanding the thoughts in the characters’s mind.
