Hello fellow bookies. I hope you enjoyed my October Roundup. I sold a bunch of books a couple of weeks ago to a place in Greensboro, North Carolina and traded them in for credits and got over $32. Of course I used that towards more books and the Sims 4 for Playstation 4 and still have some credits leftover.

**WARNING: I tried not to give anything away but there could be slight spoilers**

 

Book RoundUp-November 2018

Take a quick look at all of the books I read in November, my thoughts, and feel free to share your own thoughts, whether you have read or want to read any of these. Oh by the way, I am on Goodreads.

 

 

Book Reviews

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

the-wrath-and-the-dawn

This book was a new focus point to my usual Fae and mystical genre. Based in Persia (I had to Google so many words), the land is cursed and our wonderful boy-king takes a new bride each day only to kill her each dawn. Until one bride lives day after day after day.

I kind of miss all of the magic I find in my usual books and I think the romance in this falls a little flat. That being said, I will be continuing to the second book to see what happens.

 

Short Review: Missing a little something.

 

Iron Daughter and the Iron Queen by Julie Kagawathe iron fey series the iron queen book roundup

The Iron Fey series can borderline on tweeny, which I usually hate with a passion. The story line and imagery in this series is what has me hooked. I find the romance is practically rated PG, the emotion and the adventure is what keeps me reading them. Of course, poor sweet gloomy Ash and sneaky Puck. If it weren’t for these two characters, I might would have ended it by book 2.

I have finished the first three in the series and I am continuing to the fourth book where we switch gears and focus on Ash. Pretty sure Mr. Gloomy is searching for they way to become mortal and be with Meghan, our now Iron Queen. Julie mentioned this is one of the books briefly so I am excited to follow Ash (Puck will be tagging along) and get away from little miss Chase for a moment.

 

Short Review:  Great story, little romance, lots of magic.

Short Review:  Helpful, healthy and full of ideas.

 

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

wintersong-book-roundupI just finished this book on the last day of November. It was insanely incredibly. Let me say, I think you will be one of two people: You will hate this book or you will love it. It can be very difficult to follow therefore I encourage you to open your mind and just keep going with it.

Jae-Jones story is beautiful, romantic, tragic, and selfish. It shows that a person’s true beauty comes from deep within their soul, in addition, that our exterior beauty fades and loses its’ power. Interestingly, it reminds us that it is okay to be a little selfish from time to time, however to be wary, and to cherish love, for it can conquer the world.

If you like this article, read this NEXT:  New IUD: Skyla **UPDATE**

I highly recommend this if you like tragedy, magic, and love.

 

 

Short Review: Beautiful story written in a poetic way.
