REBEL OF THE SANDS is a special book to me. I love it the way people love the Harry Potter books or Tolkein or Narnia. It was the first fantasy I read that said everything I needed it to, that was everything I needed it to be.

Amani, thank you for being rebellious and selfish and so unabashedly yourself. Thank you for being a feminist. Thank you for kicking major ass. Thank you for the sass. Thank you for feeling lost. Thank you for losing your way. Thank you for finding your way.

Jin, thank you for your perfect face (and chest). Thank you for being a feminist (swoon). Thank you for your loyalty. Thank you for your traitor eyes. Thank you for your devotion–which I guess could be loyalty, but don’t ruin this with logic. Thank you for your Jin-ness which I’m just realizing I don’t really know how to explain without divulging the entire plot.

Shira, thank you for being so unabashedly yourself, no matter how insufferable you can be.  *Shira-stan flag flies*

Shazad, thank you for your epic-nose breaking-badassness. Thank you for taking risks and fighting for what you believe in.

Ahmed, thank you for your ideals. Thank you for your belief in the people you love. Thank you for the rebellion.

Delila, Imin, Bahi, *smothers you all in hugs*

These characters are as precious to me as the Golden Trio or the Fellowship. This world is as beautiful as Hogwarts and Middle Earth, with myths and fairy tales weaved into the narrative and brimming with magic on every page.

The happiest of book birthdays to you, REBEL OF THE SANDS, and my friend, Alwyn Hamilton. You have crafted a magnificent story I have read over and over again with the same levels of enthusiasm each time, and I expect many readers will feel the same.

She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there’s nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can’t wait to escape from.

Destined to wind up “wed or dead,” Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she’d gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan’s army, with a fugitive who’s wanted for treason. And she’d never have predicted she’d fall in love with him…or that he’d help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is.

ARC Review: MAP OF FATES (Conspiracy of Us #2) by Maggie Hall

Check out what I thought of the second book in the high stakes CONSPIRACY OF US series!

Two weeks.

That’s how long it took for Avery West’s ordinary life to change forever. In two weeks, she discovered she was heiress to a powerful secret society known as the Circle, learned her mother was taken hostage by the Circle’s enemies, and fell for a boy she’s not allowed to love, just as she found out another was her unwelcome destiny.

Now Avery crosses oceans in private jets to hunt for clues that will uncover the truth about the Circle, setting her mom and herself free before it’s too late. By her side are both the boys: Jack—steady, loyal, and determined to help her even at the expense of his own duty—and Stellan, whose connection to Avery grows stronger by the day, making her question what she believes at every turn.

But at the end of a desperate hunt from the islands of Greece to the red carpet at Cannes comes a discovery that not only changes everything, but could bring the whole world to its knees. And now Avery is forced to face the truth: In the world of the Circle, no one is what they seem.

Thanks to Dahlia Adler for her epic #MapofMates ARC giveaway!

I LOVED MAP OF FATES SO MUCH! I had high expectations for it since I loved book one so much, and it did not disappoint. It was one of my most anticipated sequels, as you know, since I did a Waiting on Wednesday post for it. I’m happy to report the plot did not unfurl the way I expected it to, and that was totally fine.

Here’s some backstory for you about me. When I read The Conspiracy of Us, I was intrigued by that beautiful cover, and the comp title to Ally Carter, who basically made my middle and high school reading life. I was obsessed with Gallagher Girls and Heist Society. Those books were some of my favorites. The last Gallagher Girls book came out my freshman year of college and it was so surreal for me to have started this series pre-high school and be reading the last book as a freshman in college. Anyway! I started Conspiracy of Us, got hooked on page one, but then Avery made some questionable decisions and the plot kind of descended into cliche territory. I kept with it, hoping the magic of page 1 would return, and once Prada happened–around the 80pg mark–I was totally back on board and in it to the end.

With Map of Fates, I was in it from page 1. This book grabbed me and did not stop. Avery had such great growth and dimension to her. I loved seeing new sides to her and seeing how all the madness was affecting her.

map of fates

In Conspiracy I shipped both sides of the love triangle, leaning a little more to Jack, but still open to Stellan. The second installment brought more shipping, and I think I’ve landed firmly in Stellan-land. Oh my gosh. Stellan. He just shines in this book. So there’s one specific scene that just had me dying and someone else might be dying in it too, but I shipped it so hard even though it maybe the most unsexy scene ever. Oh, wait, but then there’s another one with a head injury… and another with alcohol and bar stools. Ah! I just love it ALL.

On the Jack front, his character develops too, but it never feels like we’re learning these things about him to make us ship Avery/Stellan. It feels organic to his character, like we’re peeling back his layers. I just love really good character development.

Luc!! Elodie!! My babies! I love them. When we see Luc for the first time in this book is one of my absolute favorite moments of any book ever. I was laughing so hard I needed to snap a picture of the scene.

Clearly I love the main characters of this series dearly, but I also love the writing. It’s so readable and evocative. All the different countries are well drawn and even the other families of the Circle come to life in their own ways. Map of Fates delves deeper into the twelve bloodlines and I never got bored reading those scenes, like I was waiting until Avery joined up with her friends. I loved meeting all the characters and their worlds.

What about stakes, you ask?? Oh, well let me tell you. The stakes get bigger. Order vs Circle is not so clearly defined anymore and the consequences are far reaching. I mean, they always have been since the Circle basically controls the world, but they feel very grounded in this book.

There was one plot point that happens towards the end that felt a tad sudden. It didn’t have the emotional impact on me it should have because I found it rushed. But it’s a minor issue to me and I suspect it will have an effect on Avery in book 3, so maybe there will be more chance for development there.

The Conspiracy of Us and Map of Fates are super fun novels that define escapism. They’re such a joy to read, packed with excitement, adventure, and scorching romance. I’m so excited for book 3, but sad it’ll be the end of such a wonderful trilogy. I can’t recommend this series more highly! This is something I’ll definitely reread. And they’d make such great movies! Where are you, Hollywood?????

ps These books look great next to cats.

ARC Review: REIGN OF SHADOWS by Sophie Jordan

Check out what I thought about a new YA Fantasy Retelling of Rapunzel!

reign of shadows coverTitle: REIGN OF SHADOWS
Author: Sophie Jordan
Pub Date: February 9, 2016 from HarperTeen
Amazon: Pre-order it here!
B&N: or here!
Goodreads: Add it to your shelves

Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok’s lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna’s survival depends on the world believing she is dead.

But that doesn’t stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized.

With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.

Thanks to HarperCollins for sending me an ARC!

REIGN OF SHADOWS was an enjoyable read. I flew through it, and it had nothing to do with its slim volume. It kept me turning the pages and rooting for the main characters, Luna and Fowler. Despite my enjoyment though, there were a lot of things I disliked about the novel.

My biggest complain is that there’s no reason for it to be a 2 book series. So little actually happens in book 1 that some of the romantic tension could have been cut to add in more plot and conflict that has to do with Luna’s true identity, the secret she’s keeping, and how it affects her world. A lot of scenes are repetitive and don’t establish anything new. Luna and Fowler trek through the forest and bump into people and have sexual tension and almost kiss but then don’t and then do more walking and almost kiss again. The interesting stuff like the bounty hunters slaughtering teenage girls and the main plot line of Luna being the true heir to the throne are barely present. Sometimes I also felt Luna was kept from making decisions purely to stretch the thin plot.

ugh hook

There isn’t really an ending since it just ends on a massive cliffhanger very abruptly, after a massive plot twist is revealed. I have no problem with a cliffhanger when it feels natural, like some questions have been answered or a character arc has progressed, but this book was devoid of character arcs for me and the world building still left so many questions (a forest in a world that has no sun? what do dwellers look like/what are they/how did they even come to be? how does the city above the trees have a lake?), that the end doesn’t provide any closure while still leaving the story open. It just cuts out, like if you were in a movie theater and the screen goes black in the middle of the film.

reign of shadows

As a Rapunzel retelling, it had some interesting subversions. I liked that Luna was blind instead of her “prince.” I just don’t know if she was written as Magical Disabled Person instead of simply a normal disabled person who knows how to take care of herself and isn’t solely her disability. Luna has a lot of skills, but I don’t know how she could maneuver around foreign parts of the forest without a walking stick or anything perfectly. Maybe that’s just my ignorance.

While this is a retelling, it also reads like a romance novel. Words like “heady” and “sinew” were used multiple times, which isn’t a big deal, but it just changes the feel or aesthetic of the novel. The plot was basically made up of romantic tension and almost kisses, as mentioned. I’d also call it insta-love, though some might dispute me on that point. Also, the first “moment” they share when Fowler nearly kisses her seemed to come out of nowhere, since he was very closed off before then. Fowler and Luna both fulfilled some very common, cliche romance tropes. Fowler is the gruff alpha male closed off to love, and Luna is the bright-eyed, optimistic innocent  girl. I just wish something else was done with their characters so the trope wasn’t so pronounced.

Despite that, I still enjoyed this story! Fowler and Luna had some great sass, their POVs flowed well, and I liked the side characters of Perla and Sivo. I hope we see them again! Side note: When Luna leaves the tower and begins to run out of food Perla gave her and she had feels, that gave me feels. Loved that.

feeeeels

Some might be bothered by the pace of the novel, but I wasn’t. The lead up to the end feels vaguely episodic with stuff Happening, Dramatic Break Ups and Getting Back Together compared to how slow the previous 250 pages were. All in all, REIGN OF SHADOWS needs some fine tuning, but kept me hooked to the page. Recommended for romance and fairy tale fans, rather than someone looking for a good fantasy.

Series Review: THE FIREBIRD SERIES by Claudia Gray

Check out what I thought abouT A Thousand Pieces of You and Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray!

a thousand pieces of you cover ten thousand skies above you cover

Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.

Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.

A Thousand Pieces of You
Amazon | B&N | Goodreads

Last Christmas, one book on my wishlist was the beautiful and highly anticipated A Thousand Pieces of You. I’d read Claudia’s Evernight series and her standalone novel Fateful and was really looking forward to this book. The premise blew me away and OH MAN, that cover should have been illegal. Also, I was totally hooked on Orphan Black, so I was excited to see a lot of nature vs nurture at play in all the alternate dimensions and alternate Marguerites.

I was convinced this book could not fail.

And then it did.

I can’t even explain to you how sad I was. The pacing totally died for me once Marguerite ended up stuck in Russia as a princess with no explanation of how that happened. But even before the book fell apart there, I was letdown with all the alternate worlds. Marguerite was basically the same person in all of them. Nothing really felt alternate. But then we got to Russia and the plot diverged into a sappy love story, which I was not expecting at all. This super cheesy ‘Every me loves every version of you’ developed and overtook the entire story.

I know I’m in the minority based on the glowing Goodreads reviews (and even my Reading Twin liked it more than me). Basically, on every level, book one did not work for me. But I was curious about book two and with a pretty cover like that, I couldn’t resist. And I’m so glad I did!

Ten Thousand Skies Above You
Amazon | B&N | Goodreads

This book was a massive improvement on book one. Like, it undid all of the cheesiness of book one and subverted a lot of tropes and also dug deeper into why the alternate versions of the characters stayed pretty similar to the main character versions. There were even consequences of decisions made in the long slog through Russia of book one–which is amazing because I didn’t expect to ever see that world again. But there are consequences! I really love when books actually address consequences or the fallout of breaking world building rules, and it’s sadly rare in books (or at least in books I’ve read).

I also felt like the alternate worlds were better drawn this time. They came alive in a way they didn’t in book one, for me. I’m still massively annoyed at the heteronormativity of this series, and hopefully that will change in book three, but as far as world building goes, this book was an improvement.

I pretty much tore through this book. The voice exploded from the pages. Maybe I just don’t remember one well enough cause I was so disappointed by it, but I felt like I really got Marguerite in this one. Pacing never really died for me like it did before and I read this in like a day or two compared to the week it took to read book one. I didn’t have that same feeling of dread of having to push myself through a book. I was totally on board and so hooked by this book.

There were a few scenes I thought could have been cut or shortened, but on the whole, I really enjoyed this book. I was a little dismayed with the ending though. There’s no real payoff for the stakes in this book and I needed a little more to be satisfied as a reader. The overarching plot also got a little unwieldy, but I’m still hanging on!

I’ll definitely be reading book three. I’m so happy book two was a much better reading experience: deeper world building, actual consequences from book one reverberated throughout, and the cheesiness of book one was deconstructed here.

Waiting on Wednesday: MAP OF FATES by Maggie Hall

2016 is going to be an ah-mazing book year! Here’s one that gets me especially excited.

Waiting on Wednesday Theme: Book 2!

[due to technical difficulties, the synopsis follows below]

I am sososo stoked for the next book in The Conspiracy of Us series. Book 1 was so was fast-paced and twisty. Once I hit the Prada scene, I was sucked in. I didn’t stop until I was at the last page. And of course the end was like a punch to the gut. It’s been SUCH A LONG YEAR.

Whenever I look at this gorgeous cover all I can think is:

Think pink!

I need to see Avery, Jack, and Stellan again. I kind of ship both sides of the love triangle? Beyond romance, the world building takes you everywhere the characters are.

Plus, I’m here for anything that involves cat pictures. #ConspiracyofCats

You better believe there will be a continuation for MAP OF FATES. #MapofCats #CatsofFate

So Map of Fates! I think I already described what I was looking forward to in March on Goodreads, so I’m gonna replicate it below:

map of fates review

Because what more do you need besides ladies kicking ass, boys, and bickering? Oh, and kissing. But I don’t think it’ll let me down because Conspiracy already had the best FAKE OUT MAKE OUT of all time. You know, when two characters who are totally in love with each other but won’t say so kiss in order to distract someone/hide/avoid detection and you’re left in a puddle of feels. What a beautiful trope.

So if you haven’t read The Conspiracy of Us yet, now is the time! Map of Fates is coming!

Decode the conspiracy, follow the map.

That’s totally not a real tagline. I just made it up.

Two weeks.

That’s how long it took for Avery West’s ordinary life to change forever: In two weeks, she discovered she was heiress to a powerful secret society known as the Circle, learned her mother was taken hostage by the Circle’s enemies, and fell for a boy she’s not allowed to love, just as she found out another was her unwelcome destiny.

Waiting on Wednesday: THE WINNER’S KISS by Marie Rutkoski

So many awesome books to look forward to! Here’s what I’m super excited for in 2016.

I decided not to paste the summary for book 3 since it’s spoilery for the first two books.

SUMMARY FOR BOOK ONE, THE WINNER’S CURSE:

Winning what you want may cost you everything you love…

As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions.

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.

But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.

winner's trilogy

These books are mind blowing. Part of the reason I love them so much is every time you think it can’t get worse, IT DOES. The ending of book one was game changing. The ending of book two was an even bigger twist. Marie Rutkoski is honestly a master at raising the stakes.

We were just talking about #MorallyComplicatedYA last night, and Arin and Kestrel are super amoral characters. They’re in the middle of a war/revolution and every decision is weighted, every choice dangerous. They literally hold lives in their hands. They are grey. They’ve done bad for good. They keep their motives closely guarded–which leads to a lot of angst and:

luke crying sobbing feelsLiterally me reading these books

And anyway, if the deepness didn’t entice you then I don’t know what to tell you. There’s also:

  1. Murder
  2. Tigers
  3. KESTREL THE BADDEST B EVER ❤
  4. OMG PLOT TWIST ENDINGS
  5. prettyprettyprettycovers
  6. angstangstangst

And if you REALLY need more convincing:

“He did not want her to know.
He did not want her to see.
But:
Look at me, he found himself thinking furiously at her. Look at me.
She lifted her eyes, and did.” -The Winner’s Crime

“There was dishonor, she decided, in accepting someone else’s idea of honor without question.” -The Winner’s Crime

“Right before sleep, he came close to understanding. But he was awake now.” -The Winner’s Crime

“The truth can deceive as well as a lie.” -The Winner’s Crime

“Isn’t that what stories do, make real things fake, and fake things real?” -The Winner’s Crime

Amazing, right? So read The Winner’s Curse and The Winner’s Crime in time for the LAST book in the series. And Marie promised there would be kissing!

 

I CAN’T WAIT FOR MARCH. And! Marie is joining The Fierce Reads Tour next spring!!! *happy dance* Details here! You don’t want to miss this.

Have you read The Winner’s trilogy? Are you excited for THE WINNER’S KISS? What do you think will happen? Can there be a happy ending? AHHHH!!

The Lunar Chronicles is a fantastic fairy-tale reimagining like you’ve never seen before. It is one of my favorite series, so get ready for a lot of fangirling!

Marissa is a MASTER of pacing! It’s impossible to stop once you’ve started. And she’s a wonderful plotter because–oh my gosh–I’m on the last book and things from Cinder are coming back and even just managing a score of POV characters and all their plot threads in an 830 page book and keeping everything cohesive and amazing… I bow down to you, Marissa.

My favorite aspect of the books are all the fabulous character dynamics. I think every single character interacts with each other at some point in the books. It’s so entertaining! If you’re looking for sass, this is the series for you.

I’m so sad to be finishing this series, but I’m SO HAPPY the last book is AMAZING.

despicable me i'm so happy feels

It totally sucks when the last book is a letdown. Marissa does not disappoint.

She makes these stories feel SO real! She brings back details from the beginning of the books that ground these characters in reality. For example, one character gets kidnapped in book 3, and in book 4 there’s a mention of how her farm is still running despite her not being there to take care of it!

Last Wednesday I went to see Marissa at B&N for her Winter Tour. #WinterIsHere, yo 🙂

It was Lunar Ball themed, so I wore my Cinderella castle shirt. I figured it was close enough.

There were so many pre-teen and teenage girls with their friends and they were so excited. It made my stone cold jaded college student heart so HAPPY to see girls so unabashedly excited for something. And to see friends reading together.

We were very lucky and got a reading from Rebecca Soler, the audiobook narrator. She read from chapter 2 and did all these voices. It almost felt like what a movie would be. Speaking of, we want a movie! Or a mini series! Seriously, if cyborg Cinderella, hacker Rapunzel, and SPACE doesn’t warrant a movie, I don’t know what does. Hollywood, you have a diversity problem and The Lunar Chronicles might endear some people to you.

Back to the event! Marissa came out and all adorable and said that five years ago today she had signed the contracts for her book deal to publish Cinder. Talk about coming full circle.

She told us the story of Snow White and talked about her love of Disney movies as a kid sparking her desire to retell fairy tales in new and exciting ways. After all, Disney is just one huge retelling.
