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 🙂 . I loved the character’s developments, the thrilling plot and the stunning world Marissa Meyer builded. 

“Even 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.

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.

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.
