Book Review: Wait For You

"Wait For You" by Jennifer L. Armentrout(Wait for You series #1)

Genre-New Adult, Romance, Contemporary

Paperback Edition-360 Pages

5/5 Lily Pads

Would I Recommend It? Yes!!

Trigger warning: Mentions of self-harm and rape that happened in the past

No Spoilers!!

Favorite Quotes:

"Everything was okay. Maybe not perfect, but life wasn't meant to be perfect. It was messy and sometimes it was a disaster, but there was beauty in the messiness and there could be peace in the disaster".

“What are you up to?”

“Oh, you know, mischief and mayhem,” he replied.

“That so reminds me of Harry Potter,” Brit said, sighing. “I need a re-read.”

We all turned to her. Two bright spots appeared in her cheeks as she tossed her blonde hair back. “What? I’m not ashamed to admit that random things remind me of Harry Potter.” 

Hey guys, I'm finally back. It's been a week since I last posted. A week ago I started "Wait For You" but then I got into a slump so I stopped reading for a couple of days. After the slump was over I picked up the book again and finally finished it. I loved this book! This book has been on my TBR for years! Jennifer Armentrout is one of my favorite authors and this book did not disappoint. Read on to find out why I loved this book. 

The Plot

Some things are worth waiting for.

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago--an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe--please God--make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn't need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she's building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing.

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that's just so... so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet.

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she's has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for.

My Opinion

First of all, I love the New Adult genre. I haven't read too many NA books yet but I fell in love with this genre a couple of years ago. So this book has been on my TBR for a long time and I've had this book sitting on my shelf for two years. I'm so glad I finally read this book. I don't know why I waited so long to read it honestly. After recently finishing her "Lux" series and loving it I obviously needed to read more of her work. This book did not disappoint me. It's a combination of two things I love. New Adult Romance and Jennifer Armentrout are the best combination ever. 

I just love her writing style. I'll admit that her style isn't very unique, but I love the way she tells her stories. Her books are usually in first person, which I love. She does a great job at pacing her books. I was never bored and the book never dragged for me. If I didn't have other things going on I could've read this book in a day or two instead of a week. 

As for the plot I'm not going to say much about it because it's contemporary. It's just about a girl in college with a tragic past. I love reading books about college so I liked the plot of this book. 

Last but not least, I'm going to talk about the characters because they are the reason I gave this book 5/5 Lily Pads. I loved the characters in this book. Jennifer is always really good at developing her characters. I find her characters very realistic and relatable. 

Speaking of relatable I loved the main character, Avery. 
She was such an awkward girl and I could so relate to that. She didn't know what to say to people and would run away whenever she was around certain guys. She never dated before so that's why she didn't know how to act around boys. I could totally relate to her because I'm an awkward person. I'm very socially awkward and I've never had a boyfriend either so I was able to connect with her a lot. She was just an amazing protagonist. I have to say that I hated her parents. If you read the book, you'll know why. They were just so awful. They didn't believe Avery even though she was telling the truth. It irritated me that they didn't even care about her when she left them. They were just very cold to her and they made me so mad. Good parents should believe and support their children no matter what, and Avery's parents did the complete opposite.  They didn't encourage Avery to tell the truth, they told her to lie and to never speak up for herself, which is so wrong. Overall, I really didn't like them. I'm glad my parents aren't like that. 

I really liked Cam. He was such a great guy. I love that Avery and Cam both have lots of flaws. They both had a tragic past and I love that they helped each other move on. I also love how supportive they are for each other. They never judged each other for the things they did in the past.I loved that there was no insta-love in this book. Avery and Cam built up a great friendship first and I loved that about the book. I love when the guy and the girl are friends first.  Cam is  your typical arrogant, bad boy but he's not a jerk. He's not a player. He's very sweet and nice and I love how close he is to his family. Cam is very protective of his little sister which was also very sweet. He is a perfect boyfriend and I just loved him. I loved his little sister Teresa. She wasn't in the book much but the next book "Be With Me" is her story so I'm excited to get to know her more. 

As for the side characters, I loved all of them. I loved Avery's friends, Britt and Jacob. They were so cool and funny, their conversations made me laugh at times. They were very nice to Avery and they supported her relationship with Cam. They always encouraged her to go out with Cam. They were good friends and I really loved them. I also loved Cam's best friend Jase and Ollie was a great guy too. 

What I learned: Since this wasn't a huge coming of age novel, I can't think of a lot of things that I learned. But one thing I learned from this book is, you have to let go of your past if you want to have a great life in the present and future. It may take years to get over a tragic thing, but you become a much stronger person in the end. The important thing is to tell the truth no matter what, or else you'll really regret it. 

The character development in this book was amazing and that's why I loved the book so much. It's Jennifer Armentrout, she can do no wrong. She's one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to read more from her. I also can't wait to continue this series. Hopefully I like the other books as much as I love this one. So yeah guys that was my review. If you love New Adult books definitely give this one a try. If your a fan of Jennifer Armentrout pick up this book even if your not a contemporary fan. This book is definitely worth a buy and I obviously gave it 5/5 Lily Pads. Thank you so much for reading this review. Stay tuned for a review for the next book "Be With Me". Have a great day and happy reading! :)

Book Review: King's Cage

"King's Cage" by Victoria Aveyard(Red Queen series #3)

Genre-Young Adult, Fantasy, Dystopia, Science Fiction

Hardcover Edition-528 Pages

5/5 Lily Pads

Would I Recommend It? Yes! If you loved the first two, you'll love this book!
No Spoilers!!

Hey guys, I'm back with a review. So right after I finished "Glass Sword" I decided to continue on and read "King's Cage" because I was dying to know what happens. This book took me 5 days to read but that's okay because I really enjoyed it. 

Like with all my other sequel reviews, I'm not going to describe the plot because I don't wanna spoil it for those who have not read this book yet. Let's get on to my opinion. 

I was surprised by how much I loved "Glass Sword". A lot of readers said it was a very slow, boring book. I didn't think that at all, and I was so excited to read "King's Cage". I really liked "King's Cage". I liked it better than the second book. I don't have too much to say about this book so I'm going to just say some of my opinions on the book. I was excited to read this one because I heard that Maven is in this book more. Yes, I know it's twisted of me, but I just love his character. I love reading about the evil characters in books. It makes the book so interesting. But as much as I love Maven, I do not ship him with Mare. I'm still team Cal all the way, even after what happened at the end of the book. I just love Cal and I always will. I love his relationship with Mare. They are awesome together. I loved reading about Mare being a prisoner in Maven's castle. I still love Mare, she's a great protagonist. I love the side characters like Farley, Cameron, Evangeline and so on. I liked reading from their pov's but I really wish we got Cal and Maven's perspectives. I wanna get in their head and read their thoughts. I obviously love Mare's family. So yeah my opinions are the same as the first two books. Overall, this was a great book. I really love this series and I can't wait to read the last book that comes out next year. This series is definitely worth reading, go buy yourself a copy. I obviously gave this book 5/5 Lily Pads because it was awesome and it wasn't slow at all. Thank you so much for reading and I will have more posts coming soon so stay tuned. Happy reading! :)

Book Review: Glass Sword

"Glass Sword" by Victoria Aveyard(Red Queen series #2)

Genre-Young Adult, Fantasy, Dystopia, Science Fiction

Hardcover Edition-440

5/5 Lily Pads

Would I Recommend It? If you loved the first book read this one!

Favorite Quotes:

"No heart can ever be truly understood. Not even your own"

“No one is born evil, just like no one is born alone. They become that way, through choice and circumstance.” 

  No Spoilers!!

Hey guys. I'm back with a review. Today I am reviewing the first book I read in February which is "Glass Sword". I read "Red Queen" when it first came out and loved it but never got to "Glass Sword" until now. I'm so glad I finally read this book. It was a great sequel. 

Like with my other series reviews, I'm not going to describe the plot here because I don't want to spoil this book for anyone that hasn't read the first book. So let's just get on to my thoughts.

My Opinion

  I really enjoyed this book. I didn't love it as much as "Red Queen" but it was still a great sequel. I really like Victoria's writing, she's a great writer. The only thing that bothered me with this book was, she told the whole story instead of showing it. There were mostly paragraphs of description and Mare's thoughts. There wasn't a lot of dialogue and that bothered me because I love dialogue in books more than action and the character's thoughts. Other than that the book was fine. I still really love the world. The whole premise of red bloods and silver bloods is so cool and unique. Based on reviews a lot of people thought this book was slow and boring. I disagree. I didn't think it was slow at all and I loved that this book focused more on character development. I was never bored and the pacing was great. I really loved all the characters in this book. Of course I love Mare, she's a great character. Some people don't like her because she's very flawed but I love that about her. She's a very realistic character. I wish we had more characters like that in YA. Obviously I'm still Team Cal, I loved him since the first book and I still love him so much. I have a love-hate relationship with Maven. If you read these books, you'll know why, I'm not gonna spoil anything. I hated that we got like no Maven in this book, he was barely in it. I guess "King's Cage" makes up for that. All the side characters I loved and I'm not going to name all of them because there's too many. I love the Scarlet Guard Squad. There is a death in this book and it crushed me a lot. I really think it wasn't necessary. There was another death that I was happy about. 

I didn't have too much to say about this book so I'm going to wrap it up here. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a great sequel. If your hesitant about reading this one, definitely pick it up, I think it was worth the read. If you haven't read "Red Queen" yet what are you doing? If you love Fantasy or Dystopian books give this series a try. It's an amazing series and these books are definitely worth a buy too. I can't wait to read "King's Cage" to find out what happens. Stay tuned for a review for that one. I give "Glass Sword" 5/5 Lily Pads. Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for more posts coming soon. Happy reading! :)

Book Reviews: Falling Kingdoms & Rebel Spring

 Hey there. I'm back with some new reviews. I just finished reading "Rebel Spring" by Morgan Rhodes and I really need to review it. I read the first book "Falling Kingdoms" two years ago but I never did a review for it so I decided to combine the reviews together. I didn't want to do two separate reviews because I read the first book a long time ago and I don't remember much about it anymore, but I really want to finally review it, so here you go. So first I'm going to review "Falling Kingdoms" and then you can scroll down to see my review for "Rebel Spring". Let's get on with the reviews!

  "Falling Kingdoms" by Morgan Rhodes(Falling Kingdoms #1)    
  Genre-Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Hardcover Edition- 412 Pages
5/5 Lily Pads
Would I Recommend It? Yes!! If you love Fantasy, you'll love this book!

Hey guys, here is my review for "Falling Kingdoms" by Morgan Rhodes. I read this book in 2015 so I don't really remember much about it so this review will be pretty short. I first heard of this book on BookTube years ago, I remember a certain BookTuber talked about it and it really intrigued me. Unfortunately, she doesn't make videos anymore so I can't recommend her channel to you since she deleted her channel. At that time I didn't really read Fantasy books which is funny because Fantasy is one of my favorite genres now. Anyway, she convinced me to read it,  I did and I was surprised by how much I loved this book! Here's a summary if you don't know what this book is about. 

The Plot(Goodreads Summary)

  In the three kingdoms of Mytica, magic has long been forgotten. And while hard-won peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest now simmers below the surface.

As the rulers of each kingdom grapple for power, the lives of their subjects are brutally transformed... and four key players, royals and rebels alike, find their fates forever intertwined. Cleo, Jonas, Lucia, and Magnus are caught in a dizzying world of treacherous betrayals, shocking murders, secret alliances, and even unforeseen love.

The only outcome that's certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

It's the eve of war.... Choose your side.

Princess: Raised in pampered luxury, Cleo must now embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of magic long thought extinct.

Rebel: Jonas, enraged at injustice, lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished. To his shock, he finds himself the leader of a people's revolution centuries in the making.

Sorceress: Lucia, adopted at birth into the royal family, discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Heir: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, firstborn son Magnus begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword....

 Favorite Quotes:

“Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is still a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is darkness. The question is, will one give in to the dark or the light? It's something we decide with every choice we make, every day that we exist. What might not be evil to you could be evil to someone else. Knowing this makes us powerful even without magic.” 

 “Love is stronger than anger. Love is stronger then hate-stronger than anything. Remember that.”

 “Follow you heart wherever it leads. Appreciate life, Cleo. It's a gift that can be stolen at any time.” 

  “Magic will find those with pure hearts, even when all seems lost.”

 “Allow your heart to have faith no matter what. It's what will give you strength in troubled times.”

 My Opinion

Like I said before, since I read this book so long ago I can't remember how I really felt about it to give you a long review. I'm going to tell you what I remember. I remember really loving this book. It was a fun read and I just loved everything about it. I loved the world and the characters. Well, I liked all the characters except for Jonas, I really didn't like him. Some events that happened in the book made me sad. There was a death but I'm not going to say who because I don't wanna spoil you, but that death crushed me. Little did I know that so many people die in this series, and your not supposed to get attached to the characters. I didn't know that at the time but now I do. I just remember being blown away by this book. So yeah, I really loved this book. I can't believe it took me this long to finally pick up the second book. So that was my little review for "Falling Kingdoms". Thank you so much for reading. If you want to know how I felt about "Rebel Spring" scroll down and if not, then bye and happy reading!

"Rebel Spring" by Morgan Rhodes(Falling Kingdoms #2)
Genre-Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Magic
Hardcover Edition-401 Pages
5/5 Lily Pads
Would I Recommend It? If you liked the first book you need to read this one, it is amazing!

Hey guys, I just finished "Rebel Spring" three days ago and really loved it. 

The Plot(Goodreads Summary)

 The road to power... is paved with blood and magic.

is now a prisoner in her own palace, forced to be an ambassador for Mytica as the evil King Gaius lies to her people.
Magnus stands to eventually inherit the new kingdom but is still obsessed with his feelings for his adopted sister, Lucia.
Lucia is haunted by the outcome of the breathtaking display of magic that allowed her father to capture the kingdoms.
Jonas watched at the palace gates a troop of rebels behind him, waiting for him to tell them how he plans to overtake King Gaius.

After a bloody siege, Auranos has been defeated, its young queen orphaned and dethroned. The three kingdoms—Auranos, Limeros, and Paelsia—are now unwillingly united as one country called Mytica. But the allure of ancient, dangerous magic beckons still, and with it the chance to rule not just Mytica, but the whole world over...

At the heart of the fray are four brave young people grappling for that magic and the power it promises. For Cleo, the magic would enable her to reclaim her royal seat. In Jonas's hands, it frees his nation, and in Lucia's, it fulfills the ancient prophecy of her destiny. And if the magic were Magnus's, he would finally prove his worth in the eyes of his cruel and scheming father, King Gaius, who rules Mytica with a punishing hand.

When Gaius begins to build a road into the Forbidden Mountains to physically link all of Mytica, he sparks a long-smoking fire in the hearts of the people that will forever change the face of this land. For Gaius's road is paved with blood, and its construction will have cosmic consequences.

    Favorite Quotes:

"But even the coldest hate can shift into something warmer if given enough time, just as an ugly caterpillar can turn into a beautiful butterfly"

 “Evil is a choice one makes, not a natural state of being.” 

 “I believe we make our own destinies, every last one of us.”

 “You’ve made mistakes, yes. And I have no doubt, just as anyone who lives and breathes, that you will make many more in your life. But it doesn’t change who you are deep down inside.”

“Sometimes the smallest glimmer of inner strength is all that we have to help us press forward through the darkness.” 

My Opinion

I can't believe I waited two years to finally read this book because I loved it so much! It was an amazing sequel. 

I really love Morgan's writing style. A lot of people say her writing isn't very good and it's very simple but that's why I like it. I don't like reading books with beautiful, flowery writing all the time. With Fantasy books, the writing doesn't have to be beautiful. 

Obviously I loved the plot for this book. I can't say anything about it because I don't wanna spoil you. 

I really love the world in this series. I love learning about Mytica and I love all three kingdoms. I love this series because it's not confusing. The worlds are easy to learn and understand. This is the perfect Fantasy series to start off with because it's not overwhelming and confusing. 

Last but not least, let's talk about the characters.
Lots of character's died in this book and I'm not gonna say who died. Some deaths I was sad about and there was one death I was happy with. 

I loved Cleo in the first book, but I love her even more now. I love how strong and determined she is. I feel so bad for her, she lost so much. I just admire how tough and strong she is, but I love that she's such a good person. She's very sweet, nice and very caring towards others. She respected the other kingdoms and wanted to help others. Overall, I just love her character. She's a great Princess and I think she will be an amazing Queen someday :)

Next let's talk about Jonas. In book one I really didn't like him at all. I thought he was such a mean person, and I hated reading about him. I don't know how but the author made me like him in this book. I learned more about his character and for some reason he was more likable in this book. I really liked his friends too, I hope be becomes friends with Cleo. I think they would be great friends. What's funny about this series is, I'm completely on the rebel's side. I agree with them and I wish I could totally join them. I'm usually not on the rebel's side for books, but I'm with them all the way. We need to take down the evil King. I really liked Lysandra's character too. 

I really liked Lucia's character in the first book. She was a good person and she was easy to like. I was reading reviews and a lot of people said they didn't like her in this book. I disagree. I still really like her character and I feel bad for her. She has no idea what she's doing. I also liked Alexius. 

Last, let's talk about Magnus. I liked him in "Falling Kingdoms" but now I really love him. I don't know why I love him because he's not exactly the nicest guy. Maybe because he's a Prince and I have a soft spot for them. I just really love his character now. He sort of has a bad life and he's scarred. I know he's a good person deep down and I wish he would show it more. I feel bad for him because he has to live with his idiot father. He always thinks he's just like his father, but he's not. He's able to love and care unlike his father. He's very cold and mean but I like that about him. He actually reminds me of my book boyfriend "Prince Ash" from the "Iron Fey" series. Their personalities are similar and he just reminded me of my sweetheart, Ash. Is it bad that I ship him with Cleo? I also ship her with Jonas too. 

Overall, this book was so amazing and I can't wait to read "Gathering Darkness". I'm so tempted to read it next but I have to read other books first and I don't want this series to end. I'm officially obsessed with this series, lol. Thank you for reading my reviews. If you haven't read this series yet, what are you doing? You need to read this series now! These books are definitely worth a buy. I'll probably combine the review for "Gathering Darkness" and "Frozen Tides" together so stay tuned for those. Thanks again for reading, have a great day and happy reading! :)

Book Review: Wither

"Wither" by Lauren DeStefano(Chemical Garden Trilogy #1)

Genre-Young Adult, Dystopia, Science Fiction, Romance

Paperback Edition-358 pages

5/5 Lily Pads

Would I Recommend It? Yes. If you liked "The Selection" and "The Jewel" series, you'll love this one

Beware of Spoilers!!

Favorite Quotes:

   “I'll tell you something about true love. There's no science to it. It's as natural as the sky.” 

 “There are lots of love stories here.....They either end happily or everyone dies.”

Hey guys, I'm back with a review. Today I am reviewing "Wither" by Lauren DeStefano. This book has been on my TBR since 2012. I've been wanting to read this book since I first discovered booktube five years ago. I'm so glad I finally read "Wither" because I really enjoyed it. Let's get on with the review.

The Plot(Goodreads summary)

 By age sixteen, Rhine Ellery has four years left to live. She can thank modern science for this genetic time bomb. A botched effort to create a perfect race has left all males with a lifespan of 25 years, and females with a lifespan of 20 years. Geneticists are seeking a miracle antidote to restore the human race, desperate orphans crowd the population, crime and poverty have skyrocketed, and young girls are being kidnapped and sold as polygamous brides to bear more children. 

When Rhine is kidnapped and sold as a bride, she vows to do all she can to escape. Her husband, Linden, is hopelessly in love with her, and Rhine can't bring herself to hate him as much as she'd like to. He opens her to a magical world of wealth and illusion she never thought existed, and it almost makes it possible to ignore the clock ticking away her short life. But Rhine quickly learns that not everything in her new husband's strange world is what it seems. Her father-in-law, an eccentric doctor bent on finding the antidote, is hoarding corpses in the basement. Her fellow sister wives are to be trusted one day and feared the next, and Rhine is desperate to communicate to her twin brother that she is safe and alive. Will Rhine be able to escape--before her time runs out?

Together with one of Linden's servants, Gabriel, Rhine attempts to escape just before her seventeenth birthday. But in a world that continues to spiral into anarchy, is there any hope for freedom?

My Opinion

Like I said before, I really enjoyed this book. This book has a lot of mixed reviews so I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I'm so glad I gave it a try and I'm surprised by how much I loved this book. While I was reading this book, it reminded me of "The Selection" series by Kiera Cass which I loved and "The Jewel" by Amy Ewing, which I haven't read yet but want to. 

This is the first book I've read by Lauren DeStefano and I have to say, I really like her writing style. It's very beautiful and unique but simple at the same time. 

I really like the plot for "Wither" even though it's kinda creepy. I was intrigued by the story because Women die at age 20 and Men die at 25 which is so different to read about. As a 22 year old, I would've been dead already, haha. It was just so unique. I usually hate Dystopian books but this one was pretty good. Like I said the plot stood out to me and I just thought it was very cool but wrong at the same time. 

Last let's talk about the characters.
I really liked the main character, Rhine. She was a nice, genuine girl. She really cared for her family and I love that she became very fond of the other girls in the mansion, even though she didn't know them very well. I loved how determined and strong she was. She didn't let anyone get her down and I love that she didn't give up and did what she wanted. She was very compassionate and loyal. One thing that irritated me about her was just that she led Linden on the whole time and she never loved him. I understand why she did it, but it still annoyed me. I just hate when people lead other people on, especially if you don't feel the same way, it's just wrong. Other than that, I really liked her character. 

I really liked the other sister wives. Jenna was a great character. At first I didn't know what to think of her because she was very distant. After awhile I ended up really liking her. She was a nice girl and I liked her friendship with Rhine. It broke my heart when she died, I didn't expect her to die so soon. I also liked Cecily even though she was a brat at times. She was only thirteen so it didn't bug me too much though. I liked her because she was nice when she wanted to be, I liked her relationship with Rhine and Jenna. I hated what she did at the end though. It made me made at her. 

I liked Linden. He was a pretty good character. He was a very, sincere, nice guy. He was very naive at times though. He didn't know what was going on and why his Dad made him marry the three girls. But yeah, even though Rhine was in a terrible situation, it was hard to be made at Linden because he was so nice. I wasn't rooting for him though. 

Now let's talk about one of my favorite characters in this book, Gabriel. I loved Gabriel! He was so sweet and nice. I know I said Linden was nice too but I just liked Gabriel so much more. He was a normal guy but he's such a good guy. Like I said he was so nice and sweet and I loved his friendship/romance with Rhine. I was rooting for them throughout the whole book. I am definitely Team Gabriel. 
As for the side characters, I liked them. I liked the girl maids like Deirdre and the others. I didn't like Linden's father, he wasn't a good guy. 

What I learned from this book: I didn't really learn much from this book. But one thing I did learn is, if your not happy with your life, do something about it. It goes with the story because Rhine was miserable in the mansion, she really didn't wanna be there. She was so determined to leave and she did. I was proud of her for not giving up. 

That was my review. Thank you so much for reading. I really liked this book and it's definitely worth a buy. Obviously I gave it 5/5 Lily Pads. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue the trilogy because I heard bad things about the last two books. It also read well as a stand-alone. I'll have another post up soon so stay tuned for that. Bye and happy reading!
