Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows is a Masterpiece!

I finally finished Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows [The Book Depository]! I must tell you something: it’s a masterpiece! Despite having a few time to read, I managed to finish it before I had in mind. This is so good, you don’t want to sleep at night because you need to know what happens next! No wonder I already started reading Crooked Kingdom [The Book Depository].

What can I tell you that you haven’t read elsewhere? This is more than Ocean’s Eleven and Game of Thrones combined! This is the epiphany of fantasy and suspense mixed. It’s been a very long time since I’ve got hooked in this way with a book!

[SPOILERS: be advised, there are some spoilers ahead. Don’t worry; there aren’t enough of them as to crush your will to read this book.]

FairyLoot April Unboxing: Awesome Swag

Welcome to another FairyLoot unboxing! This time I’m unboxing all the awesome swag from April’s box. I must say that this subscription box becomes better by the minute! I had a wonderful time creating and editing the video. But it was hard for me to wait until unboxing it. This box was themed Dreams and Wishes. This was the perfect box for my birthday. In fact, it arrived just the next day. It was amazing!

I also decided to try the rep search from FairyLoot on Instagram. But, to be honest, with 800 entries, I think it’s going to be incredibly difficult to be noticed. But, the fun to just try is thrilling. Don’t you agree?

Currently reading: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I cannot wait until I finish the book! Six of Crows [The Book Depository] is too good to be real! Not only I got hooked because this amazing Ocean’s Eleven has captivated my heart, but also because all the characters are flesh and bones. Six dangerous outcasts are on a mission: to break into an impenetrable fortress to save the world. Everybody says it’s an impossible heist. And yet, our six heroes will try the impossible, despite the odds, and themselves. They love each other and hate each other. So, I’m reading at a frenzy ratio to know if some of them are going to kiss or slit their throats open!

Joanne M. Harris Runemarks: you have to love Loki

You have to read Joanne M. HarrisRunemarks. If you love Loki, this is another great piece of literature on him. I read The Gospel of Loki time ago, and then I put my eyes onRunemarks. It’s a masterpiece. If you compare the sizes of The Gospel of Loki and Runemarks you’ll realize that Loki has been creating some mischief. One book is small, and the other is so big. Blame the trickster.

Be advised: there are mild SPOILERS ahead. But don’t be surprised to find tons of incredible mischief, chaos, and trouble. If you find Loki in a book, well, he sets up stuff to be frenzy.

The Sleeper and the Spindle, the review

I just read The Sleeper and the Spindle [The Book Depository] and it was glorious. I also purchased the audiobook on Audible and combining the two was the best thing ever!

This is a masterpiece by Neil Gaiman. This is a new fairy tale. I’m sure that just reading it is a pleasure. However, combining the book and the audiobook is completely perfect. The audio effects are amazing. I think that the book earns a new insight when combined with all the sounds.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Review

I finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time [The Book Depository] in two days. The books is brilliant: you enter into an Autistic kid’s mind and how he navigates and sees the world around himself. Christopher is a fifteen-year-old kid with autism. He lives with his dad. One day, when he takes a night walk, he discovers that someone has murdered the neighbor’s dog. And so, he decides to investigate who killed him.

This book is a breathtaking adventure where you discover the ins and outs of an autistic mind. And you do that from two points of view; Christopher’s and your own. You get involved in his world, and you end up questioning yourself how many different brains and ways of taking the world are out there.

The Martian Review; or how to grow your potatoes on Mars

So, I finally read The Martian (The Book Depository). Please notice that I haven’t seen the movie. So, all the information here is about this brilliant book. It was capable of getting me hooked on a guy growing potatoes on Mars.

I’ve never been so hooked on a science fiction book before. The technical stuff didn’t seem unbearable, but necessary since I wanted to know what was going on Mars. I found the reading pace very fast, highly entertaining and smart. This came as a shock since I expected something else.

Rivers of London Review

Rivers of London is an amazing ride. Today I’m going to review this fantastic book. Keep in mind that I love Sherlock Holmes, fantasy and science fiction. So, there’s no surprise here why I might love Rivers of London so much. Rivers of London was titled Midnight Riot in the US.

The hero of the book is Peter Grant, a young countable from the Metropolitan Police. He has to investigate a crime, and the primary witness is a ghost. He works along with his superior Inspector Nightingale, who is a wizard.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a fantasy classic that children and grownups can enjoy. I decided to re-read all Harry Potter, and the first volume came with delight: Snape. I can’t say anything about Harry because I don’t like him very much. But Hermione, Snape, and Luna are perfect for me.

This first volume is fun, super quick to read, and an excellent way to get hooked in the Harry Potter series. I had already forgotten how much fun I had with it years ago. This time, I’m reading the UK version of the books. Even so, Hagrid comes as a complicated character. His way of speaking kills me. But he’s such a soft giant!

The Sword of Shannara, an epic fantasy tale

The Sword of Shannara is an epic fantasy tale that you will either love or hate. I’m a Lord of the Rings fan, and it seems that this novel is a tribute to it. Despite this, there are mixed feelings about the Shannara Chronicles out there. Some people love it, but others hate it. I belong to the group who finds it fascinating. It’s not exactly like LOTR, although you can see many similar things along the way. The world-building is nice, the characters are believable, and the story has some surprises by the end of the book.

But it has a downfall: there’s only a female character having something to say, and she’s a damsel in distress. Despite this, the story is worth it. So, I’ll be keeping my plan of reading all the Shannara Chronicles little by little.
