February was a rollercoaster of a month. So much so, that I’m surprised I managed to read one book, let alone six. My life is finally settling down again (famous last words), so hopefully I can get back into my hobbies, like blogging and reading.
(Rating System: books are rated out of five roses🌹, .5 is half a rose.)
1. We Three Heroes by Lynette Noni
We Three Heroes is a novella for The Medoran Chronicles series.
I’m not a huge fan of novellas, so I feel like I enjoyed this one as much as I could enjoy a novella. I liked that we got to know the other main characters better, especially right before the concluding novel. You can read my review of the series here.
2. Reckless by Cornelia Funke (book 1 in the Mirrorworld series)
Jacob has been escaping into another world since he was a child. Everything in his alternate world is great until his younger brother Will follows him in and soon has a timer on his life as he knows it.
This book was a huge spiral into eternal boredom. You can read my full review here.
3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (book 1 in The Hunger Games trilogy)
Katniss Everdeen takes her sister’s place in the Hunger Games, a fight to the death in live TV. Winning means fame and fortune. Losing means certain death.
It’s been six years since I read The Hunger Games trilogy and I was curious to see if it was as good as I remember. Just like before, this book completely sucked me in. Part of it may be nostalgia, but this novel was just as thrilling and addicting as I remembered.
4. Quests for Glory by Soman Chainani (The School for Good and Evil: The Camelot Years book 1)
Every four years two children are taken and never to be seen again, except for in the pages of storybooks. Sophie’s dream is to be kidnapped and become a princess, Agatha’s dream is just to be Sophie’s friend. But, they’re both about to discover that not all fairy tales have a happy ending.
My feelings for this book were a little up and down. I enjoyed the first quarter but the plot quickly started to slow, before picking back up again. It took me a little longer to fully get into the story, but overall I still really enjoyed this new installment.
5. Vardaesia by Lynette Noni (book 5 in The Medoran Chronicles)
Alex Jennings is dreading her first day at her new school. But, before she can even start she finds herself walking through a door and landing in the world of Medora. This land is filled with adventure, a school for the gifted, and an evil force that wants to see it and her destroyed.
This was a gripping, devastating, and brilliant conclusion to the series. It may have broken my heart, but I enjoyed every moment of it. You can read my full review of the series here.
6. Persuasion by Jane Washington and Jaymin Eve (book 2 in the Curse of the Gods series)
Willa knight is a dweller with a short life expectancy. But, one mistake sends her off to Blesswood to live a life serving magical beings. She soon finds herself entangled with the five Abcurse brothers that will change everything, for better and worse.
Not quite as good as the first one, but it was just as fun, addicting, and trashy.
