I’m doing this Friday Reads a little differently. I read this book a few weeks ago but I was out of town for work when I read it and I did not make time to blog about it!
Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
A Court of Mist and Fury was an amazing book. It’s the second installment of A Court of Thorns and Roses and I can’t wait until the third book comes out! I’m not sure if I can survive until May when it’s scheduled to be published. I want to know SO BADLY what’s going to happen. The plot twist at the end with Feyre, Tamlin, Rhysand and Feyre’s family was INSANE. Sarah J Maas really does know how to create a cliffhanger!
If you like fantasy books I definitely recommend this series! It’s amazing, keeps your interest and you want to keep coming back for more.
What are you reading this weekend?
I had been anticipating this book for a while and I was a bit disappointed with it. And it sucks to be disappointed with a book that you’ve been waiting to come out for a while. This series had so much building up for the ending and it felt like a letdown, to be honest.
The tone, or voice, of the story, changed. Even though it was the same author. And I haven’t really experienced that before with a book that the same author is writing. And it bugged me. A lot.
This book also felt rushed. That may have been the publishers or editors doing. But that didn’t make me happy either. So, overall, I really liked the series but I wasn’t too happy with how it ended. It ended ok, but it still left me with the feeling of “WTF just happened?!” It just wasn’t satisfying.
I read some reviews on Good Reads about this book and some people loved how it ended. So you will have to decide for yourself!
There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.
Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.
The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.
Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater is the book I am reading this Friday. It is the third book in the Raven Cycle series. I’ve only read this book once so I’ve forgotten a lot about it. I’m really glad that I decided to re-read the series before I start the fourth book! I’m hoping to start that one within the next couple of days.
I also read The Dream Thieves this week. It’s the second book in the series. A lot of the book is from Ronan’s and Adam’s perspective. I enjoyed seeing how they analyzed things that have been happening in the story line.
I’m very excited about finishing this book and starting the fourth one! I don’t know if it’s the last book in the series or not but I can’t wait to see where things go!
I have not been good about doing my #FridayReads posts the last few weeks so this one may be a bit lengthy. I’ve read a handful of books the last couple of weeks. I’m currently half way through my reading challenge this year! I’ve read 32/60 books! It’s starting to look like I’m going to beat my goal if things keep going the way they are.
This week I am currently reading Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon. This is the fourth book in the Outlander series. It’s the first time I’ve read these books in a while. They’re pretty lengthy so I need to take breaks sometimes and read some other stuff. I’m still working on Chronic Resilience. I got distracted by some of the other books I’ve been reading so I haven’t read much of that book in a while.
Some of the other books I’ve read over the last couple of weeks are:
- Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
- The Witch of Duva by Leigh Bardugo
- The Demon in the Wood by Leigh Bardugo
- The Too-Clever Fox by Leigh Bardugo
- Little Knife by Leigh Bardugo
- The Tailor by Leigh Bardugo
- When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
I really wanted to finish the Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo which is why I read so many of her books recently. It was a really good series and I’m happy with how it ended! When Breath Becomes Air was a very good book. It’s about a doctor who gets terminal cancer and has to deal with the fact that he can’t cure himself. It was a really good book but if you read it you need to make sure you have tissues for the ending! It got me pretty good. It was the pick this month for book club so I will be discussing it on Sunday. It will be interesting to see what everyone has to say about it.
What I am reading this week is Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and Chronic Resilience by Danea Horn. I wasn’t planning on starting another book until I was done with Chronic Resilience but I needed something to read that gave my mind a break.
Chronic Resilience is a very interactive book. It has you doing exercises in a journal as you read through it. The book is designed to help women with chronic illness learn how to cope with it. I’m about two thirds of the way through and I can’t wait to see where it takes me next!
