After my long car ride today, I finally made it to finish the sequel of Marissa Meyer’s novel Cinder. And I have quite a few thoughts about it. And just to mention, as this is indeed a sequel, my review of Scarlet might contain spoilers.Continue reading “Scarlet – Review”

After a week of too short reading time, I finally made it to Marissa Meyer’s final explosion in her novel Cinder. I couldn’t love a book more – is all I am saying to that Continue reading “Cinder – Review”
I have not read a book that brought me to my limits like this one in a long time. I panicked more than a few times, I feared for a life and I got entangled in the story. Sabaa Tahir’s novel is straight-out a masterpiece. Continue reading “An Ember in the Ashes – Review”
What can I say? Loving it but hating how much it has affected me. I loved it and I felt with Molly and I loved Patrick and I hated Patrick. Katie Cotugno somehow always makes me fall in love with her characters and she hasn’t let me down so far, not after loving Top 10. Continue reading “99 Days – Review”

I have mentioned Jeanne Birdsall’s Penderwicks in so many blog posts of mine that I am wondering if some of you have had enough of them already. That may be the case for some of you. However, this will never be the case for me as my devotion and love for Jeanne Birdsall’s novels goes back so many years that I couldn’t, cannot and won’t picture my life without this family. Just now, let me explain why I love the Penderwicks. Continue reading “The Penderwicks – Review”
OMG I made it. After so many weeks of waiting and after so many days of reading I finally finished Maureen Johnson’s Truly Devious. Continue reading “Truly Devious – Review”
With this being one of the most anticipated releases of 2018 and both Leigh Bardugo and Victoria Aveyard loving and praising it, I had pretty high expectations and Holly Black’s The Cruel Prince really did live up to my expectations.
Jude and her two sisters see their parents murdered at a very young age. And nobody else than the coldblooded assassin takes them with him to the world of Faerie. Being mortal in the Faerie world, Jude must prove herself more often more intensely to be approved than any other faerie itself. She must be as dangerous, as dreaded and as smart as the Fey themselves to survive and to receive the thing she wants most: power.
She no longer wants to me mocked for being mortal, she no longer wants to threatened, she no longer wants to be belittled by the arrogant prince Cardan. But as she finds herself in the middle of the downfall of the world she so fiercely tries to prove herself to, she has to decide: her own desires or the future of her world.
To be honest, the book startet a bit slow and I didn’t know what to think of Jude’s obsession with power, but it surprised me at the end. The end offers so much more than the cover text as the ladder only talks about Jude’s “stairway to power” other than political intrigues and the future of the world she grew up in.
I could really identify myself with Jude in most points, as she grows up to love her parents’ assassin but never quite forgives herself for the important role he plays in her life. And the struggle she goes through, her behaving more and more like a faerie and feeling like a faerie in her heart but never being treated equal.
I think talking more about the book’s development would give up too many secrets that one must unravel during reading, so I guess this is the end of the review! Although the book started slow, it turned out to be a fantastic plot with many turn points.
