My Review:

” I have heard that for mortals, the feeling of falling in love is very like the feeling of fear. Your heart beats fast. Your sense are heightened. You grow light-headed, maybe even dizzy „

This book was a little bit smaller than the cruel prince but it was more pretty than the cruel prince which I gave 5/5 stars last year but comparing with The Wicked King I gave the wicked king 20/5 stars it was a soooooo fascinating.

And the reasons that I love the wicked king more than the first one is that the romance here was so freaking good I love this hate,love romance so much.

Also I learn more about carden’s personality here and about his childhood life. pulse the world bulding grow in a positive way and Holly Black’s writing was perfect here she describes things more So the story becomes more clear than the cruel princes.
And OMG I didn’t saw this ending to come it was a deadly ending I read the last chapter more than once to make sure if the ending was real I don’t know how I’ll wait another year for the last book it is an agony!!
So After all I assure you that if you didn’t like The Cruel Prince that much you will like The wicked King so give it a try it deserves it. Plus I highly recommend to listening to the audiobook the narrator did Jude character in a professional way also she did act the other characters’s voice very well.

• let me talk about Tayrn And Locke and how the are so foolish and betrayals at first tayran tried to kill Jude when she was going to Madoc house to celebrate the night before Tayrn’s wedding and he stole Jude’s present and give it to Tayrn as it was his gift to her.
And then at the end of the book came Tayrn and acted as she was Jude and made carden signed a boon according to Madoc command.
So i’m So sorry for what I’ going to say but I’m f**king heating both of them.

First I was asking my self the reason for the book name ! Because Carden was soooo sweet and lovely but then come the end and I feel like

jquDWJfPUMCiI.gif

” Never make a bargain with them,” he tells me, “ Not a wise one or a poor one, not a silly one or a stranger one, but especially not one that sounds pretty good.”

I can’t believe it until now that, Jude trusted Carden and married him to become the Queen of Elfhame to make her give him his freedom from his vow and her control but then he EXILE Jude to the mortal world because she killed his brother (Balekin) but Jude killed him because he tried to poison Carden, Stupid Carden . I’m going to lose my mind if I didn’t lose it already to know what Jude going to do in the next book to him it will be an epic revenge I think 👀

I will stop my spoiler here even I know ethere is a lot of things to discuss but the review will be too long unless it is too long already! 😄

  • My Rating:

My Review :

” Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human.”

i have a mixed feelings about this book it was kinda slow read at the first 100 pages but then the book get a huge turn that made me get tottaly in the book so i don’t know if it is 4.5 stars read or 5 stars read to me !
and it hard for me to write a review without spoil anything . but i will do my best not to because trust me don’t have to read any description about this book it will be more enjoyable if you go through it without knowing anything about it.

I’m so happy to have a new favorite author this was my first for V.E Schwab and of course i will read the all of her book.

It was the most unique book i have ever read . the word building, the characters and the writing style was all new to me and different than any thing i have ever read and i really loooooooove this book.

genuinely first i didn’t think that i will love reading a book have villains / super natural vibs in it but i read because of all the hype about it but thanks god that i did read it has that moody sittings that lures your mind and make you feel you are really in the book living in it. you will find alot of action, zero Romance ( there is a romance but it was not that interesting in the book ,it wasperfect even it has no romance 😍and suspense like you are watching a well directed suspense movie so i recommend it for everyone even young adults can read it, actually i don’t why it is an adult book maybe because of alot of brutal bloody scenes! but we read fantasy which has alot of this stuff so go read it your are missing alot .!

Love looks pretty on you (Arc Review)+(some of my favourite poems)

Author: Lang Leav

Genre: Adult, poetry

No.of Pages: 224

Publish Date: January 29th 2019

Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing

My rating:

Goodreads synopsis:

The much anticipated new book by international bestselling author Lang Leav. A breathtakingly beautiful collection of contemporary poetry and prose, offering powerful insights into love, heartbreak, relationships, and self-empowerment.

Filled with wisdom and encouragement, every single page is a testament to the power of words, and the impact they can have on the relationships you build with others. And most importantly, the one you have with yourself.

Lang Leav captures the intricacies of emotions like few others can. It’s no wonder she has been recognized as a major influencer of the modern poetry movement and her writing has inspired a whole new generation of poets to pick up a pen.

Love Looks Pretty on You is truly the must-have book for poetry lovers all over the world.

 

My Review:

Here it is my first arc Review on my blog 💃 Thank you NetGalley for sending to me an e.arc of love looks pretty on you 💕

Briefly, this book was all about love in a different meaning not only about the romantic love it is about love writing, family, life… etc.
I have finished it in two sittings.
The book was so emotional and touchable in some poems but there are some other poems that I didn’t feel them at all I feel like there was a normal talk or something but the poems that touched my heart was so superb it makes me imagine the scene and the situation of the poem because the author gives to ever poem a special sitting and that was amazing 😍

Frankly, this was my first poetry read ever so the genre is still peculiar to me but I think this book was a great start for me as it was so easy to fly through so I highly recommend to the one who wants to start reading poetry books.

Favourite Poems:

Looking for love

Everything looks wrong, if you look at it long enough. A word so familiar to you, one you know back to front, will suddenly feel alien if you keep staring at it. So, do not look too much at love. Do not give it another thought. Love is one of thoso things that will happen to you when you are not looking.

 

Her Crown

Another thing

she did,

they said

she couldn’t do.

Another jewel

in her crown.

 

Refugees

you don’t think about life when you are living it, or love when you are loved. You don’t think about hunger when there is abundance, or your dreams when they’ve come to fruition.

You think less about yourself and how you got to be here, and more about others who wants to be where you are. And that’s how it should be. Finding a place for yourself, then stretching your arms out to the rest of the world.

 

You turn him into poetry because you can’t have hime any other way.

 

I have been quiet lately. I know. Not because I don’t have anthing to say, but because I have too much.

No.Of Pages: 406

Publisher: Simon and Schuster.

My Rating:

My Review:

this is the best contemporary book I have ever read in my entire life absolutely one of my top favorites this year I usually don’t cry while reading any book but this one is the second book who made me sob this year the first one was ( The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah). It has a deep meaning, not like any other Christmas books but in a cute and easy, light way the main characters were so engaging the writing style makes you feel all of there feeling like you are living in them and the Romance was so beautiful I always love this kind of one day romance 😍 and honestly I love airports so the sitting of this book was perfect for me

It has very long chapters (19~27 p) and I don’t like the books which have long chapters it always gets me bored but here with this book I keep turning the pages so fast because the chapters have a very unique storyline and each chapter divide in two settings so didn’t get me bored at all.

So the sitting of this book was incredibly amazing how genius Jessica Brody is she made me laugh, cry and fall in love just in one day book 😍 So if you Looking for a beautiful holiday, a heartbreaking contemporary book I highly recommend this one 😉

My top favorite Quotes :

The Book starts with beautiful lyrics songs wich is my favorite song to Passenger😍

“ I’m encouraging you to survive. Out there. In here, I don’t care what you do. You can act tough, you can fall to pieces, you can pretend like you don’t feel betrayed by the world. This is a safe space. But out there is very different. people won’t understand. Strangers won’t automatically know what you’re dealing with. If you don’t want people to ask questions, then you’re going to have to do a better job convincing them there’s nothing to know. you have to sell yourself ”

 

“ I had a Get Out of jail Free card and I chose to rip it up. I chose to lock myself in my cell and throw away the key. What is the matter with me ”.

 

” “ If you want to be the best at something,” She replied, “ you have to just jump right in. ”

“ I thought you said if you want to be the best at something, you have to learn from the best.” “

 

“ I can’t feel warm when it’s that cold outside.

It’s not fair. It’s not allowed.

Nothing can feel good if she still gone. How that ever make sense?.”

 

“ Grief changes the way you see things forever. Because it changes you forever.”

 

“ It’s just quiet sadness.

Sadness that I’ll carry around for the rest of my life .

Sadness that I’ll eventually learn to live with.

Sadness that will become a part of me. Shape me. Make me stronger. „

 

“Contrary to what some people think, White isn’t the absence of color. It’s all colors. It’s all things. It’s every possibility blended into one blinding light.”

A Very Large Expanse Of Sea (Non. spoiler Review)

Hello everyone it have been along time since i wrote any review here but that because i wasn’t have any time for that but yaah i’m finally here.

So today i’m going to review A Very Large Expanse Of Sea book.

  • Author: tahereh Mafi.

  • Genre: YA. contemporary.

  • Publisher: HarperCollins Children’s Books.

  • Published Date: October 16, 2018.

  • No. Of Pages: 310.

  • My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟.

Synopsis:

This book is all about Racism and it is set in 2002 A year after December 11 which we all know what happened in this date. So we follow here a teenager Muslim girl Shirin and she’s tired of rude stares and comment in her new high school because of the hijab she wear so she turns to drowns her frustration in music and spends her after noons break.dancing with her brother. But then one day she meets that guy Ocean in the biology class and after that her life goes upside down.

My Review:

“ Because,” I said, “ because I always say that. I always say that I don’t care what other people think. I say it doesn’t bother me, that I don’t give a shit about the opinions of assholes but it’s not true,” I said, and my eyes stung as I said it. “It’s not true, because it hurts every time, and that means I still care, it means that I’m still not strong enough…”

This book was a very fast read it almost 300 pages i went through it with a very high expectations as i saw it will be a unique reading but unfortunately no it wasn’t that unique as i expect actually it have that typical young adult high school romance (which i didn’t support it at all ) that we find in any YA book don’t get me wrong i enjoy this conventional romance in books sometimes but i wasn’t expecting to find it here because this book was supposed to be a unique one because there is no much book talk about Muslem girls out there Plus i have alot of issue with that book, i didn’t realy feel that connection with the main character to make me sympathetically with here and honestly the only thing I love in this book was Shirin relationship with her Brother !.

But after all the book at all was good but not perfect the writing style was so simple and easy to get through so i recommend it to anyone who need an easy book to read in one sitting almost two.

● Genre: YA Fantasy.

● No.of pages: 358.

● Publisher: Hot Key Books.

● Published date: 6/3/2018.

● My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5.

 

 

● Goodreads synopsis:

Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.

The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of siren kind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?.

 

 

● My review:

” Hearts are power, and if there’s one thing my kind craves more than the ocean, it’s power “

This book was soo well written, I hooked by the writing style from the first page it is so unique and like poetry I almost taped all the pages of it !!! I get shooked when I know that it is a debut book because it is so professional 😍 it become one of my favourite fairytale retailing books, i like that it was a standalone book because it is so rare to find a standalone fantasy book.

the fantasy in it was so dark and enjoyable i enjoyed its seating immensely and the characters were so friendly and funny i love all of them. but unfortunately the ending was so disappointing i didn’t like the last 4 chapters they can be more enjoyable than that, unless that the book was so soo good 😍 and i recommending it to everyone especially to who didn’t read fantasy before, it will make you love the genre because it is a standalone book so you will get into it faster than fantasy series and it is a page-turner!

 

 

● My top 5 Favourite quotes from the book :

♡ ” A Prince may be the subject of myth and legend,” he explains, “but he can’t live in them. He should live in the real world, where he can create them.”

♡ ” You’re always looking for something,” he says.

” There’s always something to find.”

” If you’re not careful, the only thing you’ll find is danger.”

” Maby that’s exactly what I’m looking for.”

 

♡ ” you know, I think I might like you. Thing is – there’s a difference between liking someone and trusting them.”

 

♡ ” People don’t tell secrets because someone needs to know them. They do it because they need someone to tell.”

 

♡ ” Monsters, are not wonderful. Watching them die is pretty wonderful.”

Thank you for reading my review 💙💙 tell me your thoughts about the book if you had read it down in comments and tell me your favourite fairytale retailing book 😉
