The Letter for the King – Predictable and Unrealistic

Book Overview Didn’t love or hate him Didn’t really care for them Simplistic and predictable Very boring at times! Cool cover   What I Loved The beginning of the book was actually fairly interesting. Tiuri was on the run from the knights leaving on this potentially epic journey. Unfortunately the journey quickly became very un-epic in nature. The few actions scenes that were in the book were fast-paced and interesting. I just wish there had been more of them.

How Does Your Attitude Before Reading Affect the Experience?

If you’ve ever been on a sports team, you know how important attitude is. If you go into a game thinking that you’re going to lose, chances are much higher that you will actually lose. I play soccer and I’ve been in games where I was fairly certain we were going to lose and most of the players on my team knew it too. And you know what? We didn’t play as hard, didn’t fight to win, and didn’t generally care about the game. We were just there because it was one of the games we had to play in our conference. It seems obvious to think of attitude in…

Snow Like Ashes – An Enjoyable Light Fantasy

Book Overview I was always rooting for her! Would have like to get to know them more Exciting! Beginning was a little slow Very nice :)   Romance Overview – Meira and Theron Not really in love yet He’s a keeper! Not really MY SHIP BETTER SAIL D: I ship it!   What I Loved I love the concept of the seasons and how everyone’s appearance in their specific season looked like the season. For example, all the Winterians had blue eyes, white hair, and pale skin. It was hard for me not to picture Elsa as Meira while reading :) The magic system was interesting in how the rulers…

The Copper Gauntlet – a Page Turner, Filled with Magic, Mystery, and Adventure

Book Overview I loved Callum and his humor! Liked them for the most part Exciting with lots of twists! Fast paced Very cool   What I Loved This book is definitely a page turner, especially towards the end. I wish it was thicker because it was so good! I can’t wait for the sequel. The humor. The interactions between Call and his group were very funny. Call’s evil overlord list. Due to some of the revelations in the previous book Call was analyzing his behavior and determining whether or not his actions could be considered “evil.” The way he analyzed his behavior and his thoughts about it were all very…

Although, I do have all the Goodreads links at the bottom of this post if you’re interested in any of the books in the image below. Also (shameless promotion time!),…
