Despite being super busy, I finished A Court of Mist and Fury [The Book Depository]. I won’t lie to you: there’s a lot of violence and fairy sex in ACOMAF. However, you can also find a great story of recovery from trauma. Some descriptions are brutal, others are too harsh, but if you keep it up, you’ll see that whatever harsh live treated you, there’s hope if you dare to dream.
This book is about recovering a broken heart, about recovering from trauma, and about discovering true love. Sometimes, you think someone is a hero, and then you discover he’s not. Other times, the villain happens to be the real hero of the story. Prepare yourself for surprises and role reversals in this book.
[You’ll find SPOILERS from this point onwards. If you haven’t read the book, stop reading at this point. If you don’t mind spoilers, go ahead and be my guest.]
Today we’re exploring The Midnight Sea [The Book Depository] Sea by Kat Ross. I read the book in just two days because I couldn’t stop myself! Yes, it’s that good! I found this jewel thanks to Kindle recommendations that I got in my mailbox every day.
The main character is a girl called Nazafareen. When her sister is killed by dark magic, she wants to become a Water Dog, a Druj hunter. First, she has to train for years, and then when the time comes, she’s linked with a daeva named Darius.
The Daeva are slaved Druj. Water Dogs use them and their powers to hunt and kill other Druj. Water Dogs and Daeva are linked by cuffs that bind their power. There’s just one tiny problem: she can feel whatever Darius is feeling too.
I finally read Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses [The Book Depository], aka ACOTAR. Even if the author inspired herself on the Beauty and the Beast, it shines on its own. Be prepared for some harsh moments, and quite a lot of brutal depictions of violence. You will also find some sex scenes, but I found violence more appalling than anything else.
This book is fast-paced, easy to read, and has an incredible hero: Feyre. If you’re looking to read a female-lead fantasy book with tons of action, deceit and memorable characters, this is it!
[SPOILERS: this review has some spoilers. If you haven’t read the book yet, I recommend you to stop reading beyond these lines.]
Wonder Woman saved DC! I feared the worst while waiting for Wonder Woman. However, this time, DC made it right. Although the movie isn’t perfect, it sets a great origins story for Diana. I saw the movie last Friday, and I couldn’t be happier. And yes: I want to see it again! There were some cool surprises in the film that I cherished.
But before I review Wonder Woman, I want to warn you about the SPOILERS. There are many in my review. Plus, I also expose two things that I didn’t like so much about it (just two tiny things). Be warned: do not read beyond these lines if you don’t want to be spoiled.
I finished Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom [The Book Depository], and I feel I can’t have enough of it! Unfortunately, this is a duology, and this means that the adventures of my favorite thieving group are over. Well, unless Leigh Bardugo decides to write yet another book.
Six of Crows was a tornado of emotions and action. Crooked Kingdom is an explosion that will enhance your sense and wished you had more “parem.” Just like Nina, I will have a withdrawal of this book.
[SPOILERS: this review has massive spoilers of this book. If you haven’t read it yet, please refrain from reading from here. I can just let you know that it’s a masterpiece that will leave you wanting more.]
Today is Star Wars 40th Anniversary! One day like this, just forty years ago, Star Wars made it to the big screen. Today is also the Geek Pride Day. So, today is perfect! And it’s also comics THORsday! So, we’re going to celebrate everything with Skywalker Strikes“>Skywalker Strikes [The Book Depository]. If you love Star Wars, you’ll probably enjoy reading further adventures in the comics. Plus, you get to enjoy your favorite heroes even more.
In Skywalker Strikes we are in a period where the rebellion is hopeful. The evil Galactic Empire’s greatest weapon, the Death Star, has been destroyed by Luke. With the Imperial Forces in disarray, the Rebels look to press their advantage by unleashing a daring offensive throughout the far reaches of space, hoping to defeat the Empire once and for all and at last restore freedom to the galaxy.
I can just say one thing about American Gods: OMG! The show is so intense that you cannot stop staring even for a little blink. The photography of the show is so breathtaking that it left me gasping. I won’t lie to you, some of the Gods are incredibly spooky. Have you ever seen a Goddess eat a man through her vagina? You’re up to see that and gasp feeling as frightened as allured at the same time!
[SPOILERS: I cannot describe the show unless I give away some spoilers. You should also consider this show to be very mature. This is not a show for kids!]
It’s THORsday again! This means that we’re going to read comics! This week we’re going to explore all about Spider-Man: Miles Morales. He happens to have extra powers compared with Spidey. He has a problem: he doesn’t know how to balance his Superhero life with his normal life. Fortunately, his best friend and his dad are there to help. But, things look pretty grim at the moment.
For starters, he has a fan online: a young YouTuber. She has captured a video from a battle. Miles got his mask broken, and she could see that he’s brown. She instantly became a fan. Also because of representation grounds. However, Miles isn’t that happy about it.
Ten years before Spock and Kirk, we had Star Trek: Discovery! I just saw the trailer on Twitter. I’ve been reading some drama surrounding the cast, but I must say that the trailer looks brilliant. I can’t wait until fall to start the journey along with Star Trek: Discovery.
One of the things that got me euphoric is to see to female leading roles together. I just hope that the series is as brilliant as it promises. So, why are people complaining about it? I say that we must give it a go before we go berserk on it.
This week we’re going to explore a sweet comic by Ru Xu called NewsPrints. I found it diving into the shelves of the local comic book store. It tells the story of Blue. She’s an orphan who works as a newsboy. To do that she has to disguise herself as a guy. Since the comic book happens during the war time, it’s not surprising to see men and women doing different roles. Blue is a girl, so she should be selling cookies. However, she loves living and working at the Bugle, the only newspaper that does deliver the truth in town.
So, Blue’s job is crucial: she delivers a right paper that explains the truth to their readers. But, everything seems fine as long as she is a boy. But, what would happen if she were to tell the others that she’s a girl?
