Review: Legendary

Title: Legendary

Author: Stephanie Garber

Date of Publication: May 29th, 2018


Goodreads Summary:

A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.

After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.

The only chance of uncovering Legend’s identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more—and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets…including her sister’s. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If Tella can’t fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend’s name, she’ll lose everything she cares about—maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever.

Welcome, welcome to Caraval…the games have only just begun.

My Review:

I’m just going to go ahead and say the world that Stephanie Garber has created is freaking cool and amazing. I thought Tella was a decent character, although I did like Scarlett more in Caraval.

As with Julian, I really liked Dante. Stephanie can write some great males! Even the new character Jacks was incredibly intriguing. I love the mystery behind the curtains, because I never know what’s going to be revealed to me. Who is Legend? Where is Legend? What is Legend? Do I know? I think I know! These books really do feel like a game, and a game I enjoy playing.

Here’s where things get a bit tricky for me, because I loved this book, but if it’s the last one I’m going to be pissed because I have so many unanswered questions and things that I need answers to! If it’s not the last book then bravo, bravo, bravo. If you want a great place to escape, then try to find your way through this one and Garber’s gorgeous writing!

Review: Restore Me

Title: Restore Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Date of Publication: March 6th, 2018


Goodreads Summary:

Juliette Ferrars thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she’s got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?

My Review:

Okay, so I was super duper scared to go into this one since Shatter Me is my favorite series ever. But of course I was intrigued. Especially when I found out it was going to be told in two perspectives, and one of those being Warner!

I loved that this book was dark, depressing, and addicting. I already knew going in, since it was going to be book number 4 and there are going to be six total, that there were going to be things that would piss me off and drive me crazy. And boy did they ever!

I’m also so glad that Mafi writes these teens like teens and not like their forty. Because when I was a teen I was an idiot and made dumb choices—I’m pretty sure I still do now! Also, the chemistry between Juliette and Warner was just as good as before. Whether they are happy or arguing it’s all ignited!

Just don’t go into book four expecting all sunshine and rainbows! I absolutely loved it! And am aching for the next book because holy smokes, that cliffhanger!

Date of Publication: April 17th, 2018


Goodreads Summary:

“A pair of yellow eyes caught the moonlight and locked onto hers.”

Mercy has always dreamed of becoming a werewolf trapper like her father. In Kanta, one must learn how to survive one way or another. A dark-skinned, blue-eyed young beauty, Mercy understands that she brings out the beast in monsters and men. When a routine werewolf delivery turns into a vicious assault from a pair of human traffickers, Mercy’s life changes forever.

My Review:

Oh, I really liked this one! I loved the werewolf concept—it felt original and unique and all around cool!

As characters go, Mercy was a strong and fierce thirteen-year-old girl. I mean, seriously, she was one tough cookie with extra chocolate chips! She was smart, quick thinking, and did what needed to be done.

This was a quick read with great writing that felt more developed than some of the six hundred page books I have read. It also had The Walking Dead type vibe of a setting, minus the whole zombie thing!

Review: The Belles

Title: The Belles

Author: Dhonielle Clayton

Date of Publication: February 6th, 2018


Goodreads Summary:

Camellia Beauregard is a Belle. In the opulent world of Orléans, Belles are revered, for they control Beauty, and Beauty is a commodity coveted above all else. In Orléans, the people are born gray, they are born damned, and only with the help of a Belle and her talents can they transform and be made beautiful.

But it’s not enough for Camellia to be just a Belle. She wants to be the favorite—the Belle chosen by the Queen of Orléans to live in the royal palace, to tend to the royal family and their court, to be recognized as the most talented Belle in the land. But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favorite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that the very essence of her existence is a lie—that her powers are far greater, and could be more dangerous, than she ever imagined. And when the queen asks Camellia to risk her own life and help the ailing princess by using Belle powers in unintended ways, Camellia now faces an impossible decision.

With the future of Orléans and its people at stake, Camellia must decide—save herself and her sisters and the way of the Belles—or resuscitate the princess, risk her own life, and change the ways of her world forever.

My Review:

So this book has one of the most beautiful and alluring covers, even the writing within has lovely descriptions. The world building is amazing, and there is a lot of originality. My problem came with the story itself. There was so much beauty talk!

I know this is a book that should make you think about how our society is infatuated with their looks, and it does make you think. So that part does work. But I didn’t care about a lot of it!

The book did have some dark moments which was nice. But the Belles was filled with so many descriptions of food to the point where it was just tooooo much. And normally I love reading about food and want to eat the pages. But when there are too many food descriptions associated with skin color, it kind of feels like cannibalism because it makes me think of food and skin at the same time! Too weird!

I liked the main character, though! As for side characters—Auguste was underdeveloped and came off as more creepy than swoony.

The twists were predictable, but I was fine with that part. However, the writing and a society obsessed with beauty was the highlight for me. Plus, there were all kinds of teacup animals!!!
