Rapid Fire Book Tag

I’m going to be honest, I haven’t been tagged by anyone, I just found this Book Tag online and thought it would be fun to do it. It was!

The Rapid Fire Book Tag was originally created by Girl Reading on her YouTube channel.

E-Book or Physical Book?

Physical Book!

Paperback or Hardback?

I find the Paperbacks more pratical for my little wrists that dislocate so easily, but I don’t mind Hardbacks either.

Online or In-Store Book Shopping?

In-Store! However, there’s a pandemic going so do your shopping online and be safe.

Trilogies or Series? 

Series! I’m the type of person that when something is good I get attached to it, so the more the merrier!

Heroes or Villains?

I do like a bad boy…

A book you want everyone to read?

Since I’m about 14 (I do get the irony of this btw) I always tell people to read The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.

Recommend an underrated book?

I don’t even know what is a underrated book these days, first one that comes to my mind is Every Day by David Levithan.

The last book you finished?

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.

The Last Book You Bought?

How The King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black and Illustrated by Rovina Cai

Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?

Slice of cake…

I tend to buy a lot of my classics second hand, I also like when friends give me their spare copies.

Top Three Favorite Genres

Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Contemporary and Horror.

Borrow or Buy?

BUY!!!!

Characters or Plot?

For the book to be amazing it needs both!

Long or Short Books?

Depends on the story. Some are just perfect short for example Contemporary YA but Fantasy I do like a big boi!

Long or Short Chapters?

Short, because I like to read by chapters as sometimes I’m really tired but the chapter never ends and I do hate stop reading in the middle of one.

Name The First Three Books You Think Of:

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

A Throne of Swans by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr

The Jigsaw Man by Nadine Matheson

Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?

Chloe Seager’s books always make me laugh! Cry is actually much easier to do because I literally cry at everything, and I mean everything!

Our World or Fictional Worlds?

Fictional!

Audiobooks: Yes or No?

Yes. Especially before the pandemic, when I was commuting to work, so handy. However, I’m very picky when it comes to narrators. My favourite was The Confession by Jessie Burton and Narrated by Hayley Atwell (obvs!)

Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?

Yes…not all the time but some covers are a bit bad!

Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?

Depends on the type of book. Contemporary and Romance books straight to movie. Fantasy are always best when made into TV Adaptations (of course that also depends on who is producing it too).

A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?

Pretty Little Liars (I’m Sorry!)

Series or Standalones?

Some stories are made to be short and some need various books. When I get attached to the characters I do like to read about them for as longs as I can!

I really missed doing one of these. I’m not tagging anyone in particular. if you come across this and want to do it…go ahead. Have some fun.

If there’s any tags you would like to see me doing, just tag me away!

Be Safe, wash your hands and wear a mask!

How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black & Illustrated by Rovina Cai – Review

Synopsis from Waterstones

Brimming with Black’s customary faerie magic, this atmospheric prequel to the events of The Folk of the Air trilogy digs deep into Cardan’s past to unearth some incredible revelations.

Exclusive edition – includes a black cover and sixteen extra pages of Rovina Cai’s art, from original sketches through the draft stages to final artwork that isn’t in the book, with discussion by Holly Black.

Once upon a time there was a boy with a wicked tongue…

Before Cardan was a cruel prince or a wicked king, he was a faerie child with a heart of stone. In this sumptuously illustrated tale, Holly Black reveals a deeper look into the dramatic life of Elfhame’s enigmatic high king.

This tale includes delicious details of life before The Cruel Prince, an adventure beyond The Queen of Nothing, and familiar but pivotal moments from The Folk of the Air trilogy, told wholly from Cardan’s perspective.

This new instalment in the Folk of the Air series is a return to the heart-racing romance, danger, humour and drama that enchanted readers everywhere.

REVIEW

Not sure I can actually name this a review because is just gonna be me saying how much I love this series, how much I love Cardan and how glad I am that in such a sh*tty year I was able to get some joy!

How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black it’s a really good add-on to the series, as it tells short stories from Cardan’s perspective from before The Folk of the Air trilogy timeline and also little snippets that we didn’t get to read in the trilogy and some that go beyond the last book.

It’s a fairly quick read with beautiful illustrations from Rovina Cai to accompany the stories. Just look at them! They are absolutely stunning and really envision the Jude and Cardan I had in my mind.

Everyone who knows me, knows that I am a bit trash for Cardan. Thankfully, I only seem to crush on questionable fictional men and seem to have a better sense in real life! But I do love this handsome bad boy character development and redemption. He isn’t that bad after all.

I think the only complaint I have about How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories, it’s that I kinda wanted more! That’s the thing with novellas, they are always too short. I don’t think I will ever get enough of Elfhame, Cardan and Jude. I will always be excited to come back to this world and I kinda hope we get to do it again in the future.

If you haven’t read The Folk of the Air trilogy, I would definitely recommend reading it before the novella as not only you would get spoilers but also miss out on a lot of the connections to the trilogy.

How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black is a perfect gift for the fans of The Folk of the Air trilogy. If you do have the extra money I would suggest getting the Waterstones exclusive edition (as seen in my photos above) as I love the black cover and also comes with a bonus chapter with art concepts from Rovina Cai.

Blog Tour: The Love Curse of Melody McIntyre by Robin Talley

Synopsis

It’s easy not to fall in love, right?

Melody McIntyre, stage manager extraordinaire, has a plan for everything. What she doesn’t have? Success with love. Every time she falls for someone during a school performance, both the romance and the show end in catastrophe. So, Mel swears off love until their upcoming production of Les Mis is over.

Of course, Mel didn’t count on Odile Rose, rising star in the acting world, auditioning for the spring performance. And she definitely didn’t expect Odile to be sweet, and funny and care as much about the play’s success as Mel. Which means that Melody McIntyre’s only plan now is trying desperately not to fall in love.

A hilarious, heartwarming and empowering read, perfect for fans of Pitch Perfect, Love Simon and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Review

The Love Curse of Melody McIntyre by Robin Talley was exactly what I needed after a bit of a reading slump.

I’ve only read one other book by the author – Pulp – which I really loved, so when I saw the opportunity to join the Blog Tour for The Love Curse of Melody McIntyre I just had to. Especially, being someone who absolutely adores Theatre, I really couldn’t resist a LGBTQ+ YA RomCom set in the theatre department of a High School.

I’m not going to lie, I really left this one until the last possible minute to read, because due to this pandemic my ADHD and Anxiety have been all over the place. I’ve started so many books in the past couple of months, but I just couldn’t block it down. However, I gave my word that I will be part of the Blog Tour so many weeks ago and one thing that gets me going it’s the fear of disappointing people.

With this in mind, on Sunday night I decided to pick up this book and I’m glad I did because I couldn’t stop reading until I was done!

Not sure if it was the fact that I’ve been missing theatre so much since this cursed pandemic started or that it has the cutest f/f love story, but The Love Curse of Melody McIntyre was the book that I really needed right now. (So, thank you past Ana for saying yes to this blog tour!)

The Love Curse of Melody McIntyre by Robin Talley, plays on theatre superstitions. Any theatre geek knows how you should not wish Good Luck but instead say Break a Leg, and how you should not mention Macbeth in a theatre (unless it’s during the performance of said play). If you disrespect the superstitions, really bad things can happen to those working in the theatre. So everyone, even the non-believers, usually respect the superstitions. Unless your name is Nick the Dick…

What I also loved about the book, was how it was divided like a play, by Acts and then with scene heads as a way to represent a new chapter. The writing was a bit more simple from the one from Pulp, but I think with how theatre techie it is, the simplicity actually made the the story flow so much better.

Melody, our main character, isn’t the instant likeable character, at least not for me. (I wonder if it was due to our difference of opinions when it comes to liking actors and her Musical Theatre preferences! ahah) But, she really grows on you and I love how she knows what she loves and just works hard for it. Maybe a bit too hard, but what teenager doesn’t just go overboard with something they’re passionate about? I sure did!

I think some of the lessons that you can get from Melody’s story is that the greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return, and that one can’t just throw away their shot.

This book actually made me shed a few tiers. It could be because I’m emotionally misérable since this pandemic started, but I like to think it was because I actually started to relate to Melody and her love story. It was spot on what I need to read right now, and I’m so happy I had the pleasure to be part of the Blog Tour.

The Love Curse of Melody McIntyre by Robin Talley, is perfect for fans of Leah On the Offbeat and Musical Theatre geeks who also like Pitch Perfect and Glee. Out this Thursday!

Blog Tour: A Throne of Swans by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr

Synopsis From Goodreads

 

In a world where the flightless are ruled by those who can fly…

When her father dies just before her birthday, seventeen-year-old Aderyn inherits the role of Protector of Atratys, a dominion in a kingdom where nobles are able to transform at will into the bird that represents their family bloodline. Aderyn’s ancestral bird is a swan. But she has not transformed for years, not since witnessing the death of her mother – ripped apart by hawks that have supposedly been extinct since the long-ago War of the Raptors.

With the benevolent shelter of her mother and her father now lost, Aderyn is at the mercy of her brutal uncle, the King, and his royal court. Driven by revenge and love, she must venture into the malevolent heart of the Citadel in order to seek the truth about the attack that so nearly destroyed her, to fight for the only home she has ever known and for the land she has vowed to protect.

Written in rich detail and evocative language, this is the start of an irresistible, soaring duology about courage, broken loyalties and fighting for your place in the world.

 

Review

What a way to star the year! I’m utterly and completely in love with A Throne of Swans by Katharine and Elizabeth Corr. I can’t wait to get a hold of the second book!

A Throne of Swans draws inspiration from Swan Lake’s Odette and Siegfried’s story and brings the dark fairytale retelling all the way up!

The story is very well paced, starting slow enough to be sure that the reader can place themselves within the magical world of Solanum and retain all the different characters and their houses. The pace gradually picks up diving you straight into a story of shape shifters, royal conspiracies, betrayals and broken hearts (the last one being mine).

The Corr’s have a beautifully evocative way of writing, making you feel that you are right there by Aderyn side the whole journey. Also creating incredible complex and dynamic characters, where no one is actually perfect…which is such a relief to read.

Also the greatest achievement was probably the fact that for once I actually fell in love for the good guys and not the villain. That’s what you get for creating such a great character like Lucien, Lord Rockwood (a little bit in love here not gonna lie!). Katharine and Elizabeth better be taking good care of my boy in the second book, I don’t think I can deal with him being heartbroken.

Before this review turns into and ode to Lucien, I just want to add that A Throne of Swans it’s beautifully written, the world building is exceptional, the plot is intricate, the characters feel realistic within their complexity, and the romance is just enough to keep things interesting without being constantly in your face.

The most tragic thing is that I have to wait for the second book until 2021.Deeply Tragic!

Anyway, A Throne of Swans is the fantasy shape shifting book for bird lovers fans of Swan Lake.

Review

#WeAreNotOkay

We Are definitely Not Okay, especially with everything that is going on right now in the world. Us women are definitely not okay.

In We Are Not Okay by  Natália Gomes, we are told the story of 4 different girls from their own perspectives. How we judge each other without knowing what is really going on and how we should definitely stick together instead of attacking each other, as to be fair men/boys already do enough of that to us. And yes #NotAllMen but that’s not really the point here.

At first, I wasn’t sure of what to think of the book, because tend to be quite weary about books that depict girls against each other. However, Gomes still wrote a very accurate representation, or in this case 4 different but very realistic portraits of what is to grow up as a young girl. The thing is that as much as I want to read books about girls empowering each other we aren’t always like that.

You will have to give it a read to find out if in the end this girls have some kind of redemption, but I tell you now that is totally worth the read.

I think Gomes wrote very flawed characters which is perhaps why they ended up feeling so realistic. All of the girls had their weaknesses as they had their strengths, but all that they had in common is that one way or another they were being silenced.

It was only when they finally spoke that things begin to make sense. It was only when they spoke that they could see that they aren’t as alone as they think.

We Are Not Okay by Natalia Gomes deals with a lot of current issues that young people go through, and perhaps if one of them reads this book and realises that they are not alone, perhaps will be one more person who won’t be silenced.

We Are Not Okay by Natália Gomes is available in paperback and you can get it now on Amazon(affiliated link).

Blog Tour: The Beauty of the Wolf by Wray Delaney

Goodreads Synopsis

In the age of the Faerie Queene, Elizabeth I, Lord Francis Rodermere starts to lay waste to a forest.
Furious, the sorceress who dwells there scrawls a curse into the bark of the first oak he fells:
A faerie boy will be born to you whose beauty will be your death.
Ten years later, Lord Rodermere’s son, Beau is born – and all who encounter him are struck by his great beauty.
Meanwhile, many miles away in a London alchemist’s cellar lives Randa – a beast deemed too monstrous to see the light of day.
And so begins a timeless tale of love, tragedy and revenge…

A stunning retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

Mini-Review

The Beauty of The Wolf by Wray Delaney, is not only a darker retelling of the Beauty and The Beast fairytale but also is quite more mature than the classic. (Way more mature if you get what I mean!)

But there is so much more in this retelling by Wray Delaney, than a gorgeous cover and it’s darkness. There is also a gender swap, which makes the boy the beautiful one in this story, leaving the girl to be the beast.

Beauty and The Beast is one of my favourite fairtytales, so when I saw this book with it’s gorgeous cover, I knew I had to give it a go. Being set in the Elizabethan era was one of the things I loved about the book, alongside it’s fantastic world building.

However, I have to admit that I didn’t enjoy the style in which the story was written. At times made it harder to follow along and with the different points of views of the different characters, you really don’t want something that makes it harder to quickly place yourself in the story.

Nonetheless, this wasn’t a strong enough reason to put me off the book and shouldn’t be for you either. On the contrary, I still felt that was a nice quick read, with a beautiful magical setting and interesting story.

If you love fairytales retelling with a darker, sinister and mature style The Beauty of The Wolf by Wray Delaney should definitely be on your TBR list.

Rating: 🍍🍍🍍.5

Blog Tour: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa

Synopsis from Goodreads

One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos.

Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll.

There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko her best hope for survival. But he seeks what she has hidden away, and her deception could ultimately tear them both apart.

With an army of demons at her heels and the unlikeliest of allies at her side, Yumeko’s secrets are more than a matter of life or death. They are the key to the fate of the world itself.

Review 

I need the sequel like ASAP! Please someone give it to me now!

I really enjoyed reading Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa. The first time I heard of Kitsunes and Onis was while watching the TV Show Teen Wolf, and I loved discovering something new.

However, in this own voices YA Fantasy world that Julie Kagawa creates in Shadow of the Fox it goes beyond Kitsunes and Onis it opens as door to creatures, demons and magic from Japanese mythology. A brilliantly intriguing and at times scaring world.

The story is told by the perspective of three very different characters. Suki, Yumeko and Kage Tatsumi, the later two taking most of the chapters than Suki whom shows ever so often. Although I kind of believe that Suki is going to play a big part in the next instalment of the story.

Of all the characters my favourite one is Yumeko. I just want to protect her from the big, bad and scary world. She is an adorable character who is also clever and so adaptable despite being raised by monks. Most importantly she is kind to all. #CinnamonRoll

If we are being honest here, Shadow of the Fox will make a fantastic video game. As its characters go on their quest to find the Dragon Scroll they encounter other villages and dangers, a bit like little side quests until you get to the big finale. The big bad boss! Such a wonderful adventure into mythical places.

This is the first time I have read any of Julie Kagawa’s work and I believe I’m now a fan. Shadow of the Fox is a wonderful YA Fantasy novel and I can’t wait to read what becomes of Yumeko, Kage Tatsumi and Suki.

Blog Tour: Miss Marley by Vanessa Lafaye

img_6760.jpgSynopsis from Goodreads

Before A Christmas Carol there was… Miss Marley

A seasonal tale of kindness and goodwill.
Orphans Clara and Jacob Marley live by their wits, scavenging for scraps in the poorest alleyways of London, in the shadow of the workhouse. Every night, Jake promises his little sister ‘tomorrow will be better’ and when the chance to escape poverty comes their way, he seizes it despite the terrible price.

And so Jacob Marley is set on a path that leads to his infamous partnership with Ebenezer Scrooge. As Jacob builds a fortress of wealth to keep the world out, only Clara can warn him of the hideous fate that awaits him if he refuses to let love and kindness into his heart…

In Miss Marley, Vanessa Lafaye weaves a spellbinding Dickensian tale of ghosts, goodwill and hope – a perfect prequel to A Christmas Carol.

Mini-Review

I’m a big fan of Charles Dickens, so when offered the chance to review Miss Marley which is set in Dickens A Christmas Carol I just couldn’t say no.

The idea of picking up a character from a beloved classic such as A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and write their story, it can only be done by someone with some guts. This is the kind of thing that can go very wrong, but in this case it went the complete opposite way.

The way that Vanessa Lafaye decided to tell Jacob Marley’s story through the eyes of her own character – his sister Clara Belle Marley – was a stroke of genius. This decision is what gave Lafaye the freedom she needed to explore their story, while still being truthful to Dickens creation.

I had no idea until after I finished reading, that the author Vanessa Lafaye has unfortunately passed away before finishing writing Miss Marley. Her good friend and writing partner Rebecca Mascull whom shared the same love for Dickens as Lafaye, took upon the task of finishing the book for her. While reading the novella, I really couldn’t pin point where Lafaye voice ended and Rebecca Mascull began.

As Mascull said in the Afterword, it was like Vanessa’s voice flowed through her while she was writing…and that’s the feeling I got from reading.

Miss Marley is a quick and delightful read for all Dickens and Vanessa Lafaye fans. The perfect gift for classic book lovers at Christmas.

#Blogtober: VIP Bloggers Brunch at Hot Key Books

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY (5)

A week ago, I was invited by Hot Key Books to a VIP Bloggers Brunch with Alexandra Christo (To Kill A Kingdom) and Sebastien De Castell (Spellslinger series) in attendance.

The event was held at the Bonnier Zaffre offices near Bond Street. I love going to publishers offices, gives me hope to one day work in one! *Fingers Crossed*

I met up with my girlies Nicola and Ash outside the offices. Love that Ash came all the way from Wales for the event, I just love when we get lucky enough to see her too.

Once inside the office we got into a room which had a spread of doughnuts, pastries, fruit, juices, tea and coffee on a table. Me and the girls got a seat and chatted between ourselves and other bloggers while eating some of the delicious brunch.

People kept arriving, which after a while made the room quite full and there was more people than seats.  However, they made sure that people with disabilities had a chair instead of sitting on the floor which was very nice.

After a while they let Alexandra and Sebastien loose. We were able to hang out with them for a bit before they had a casual talk with us about their new books.

I loved the whole informal setting, it made things so much more fun. Alexandra and Sebastien are hilarious and super talented because their books are amazing. Well, I haven’t read the Spellslinger series yet, but I know I’m going to love it as is just my type of series.

In the end we got given a copy of To Kill A Kindom and Soulbinder (Spellslinger #4) to get it signed by the authors. I’ve met Alexandra before at YALC this year and she recognised me which made be super happy.

Overall, the event was really lovely and the Hot Key team, Clare and Roisin took such great care of us. It was really nice to have an event during the day, as I’m much more of a brunch person than a cocktail one.

I’m very thankful for the invite and can’t wait for more events with Hot Key Books.

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo is available now on Amazon(affiliated link)

The Spellslinger series by Sebastien De Castell is available no on Amazon. (affiliated link)
