book roundup

Hello fellow bookies. I hope you enjoyed my September Roundup. I am still looking but if you know of any place online that will buy books back, drop a comment below and let me know. 🙂 I hate just keeping them lying around or to give them to libraries where they may or may not get read.

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

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

The Language of Thorns

If you have read the other books in the Grishaverse series, you will enjoy this book of short stories. While this is not a continuation of the Grisha Trilogy, it is full of interesting stories that feature the Grisha back when they were in hiding and feared. The book reminds me of a darker twist on Aesop`s fables.The stories show specific morals, but the lessons are learned with dire consequences. A small, but very cool feature, there is artwork throughout the book. When a story begins, the art starts out small and begins to frame the entire page as the story grows. At the end of each story, there is a fully finished illustration.

 

Short Review: Love this book!

 

Iron King by Julie Kagawairon king

This book sort of reminds me of Sarah J. Maas` A Court of Thorns and Roses series except it is modern-day. The main character discovers things about herself, such as being fae, and is caught up in the Faery world. There she discovers a new type of Fae who threatens the existence of the Fae world and courts. When she finally returns home she is faced to uphold her end of a bargain with a dangerous Fae prince and forced to return to the Fae world to face a queen who is at war against her own court.

Short Review:  Excited to continue the series but wary.

 

House of Furies by Madeleine Roux

House of Furies

This book was very unique, I loved the end result. I am slightly concerned about how the series will progress as I think of the story as being a single book, but I guess we will see. This book is full of mystery and interesting creatures, each with their own unique “abilities”, for lack of a better word. On Goodreads, as the books progress they seem to get more and more stars so I am really excited to see where the story goes from here and what happens next.

 

 

Short Review: Wow! Like Foster`s Home for Imaginary Friends gone dark.

 

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas

kingdom of ash

Oh. My. Goodness. The heart-wrenching end to the Throne of Glass series. Finally, the seventh book is here and I was both excited and distraught. The story finally comes to a close so it`s a little bittersweet. Prepare yourself for a whirlwind of emotions throughout and give yourself plenty of time because you will not be able to put this book down.

 

Short Review: One word- UNBELIEVABLE.
