Book News: RR’s Imprint, Chokshi’s MG series, & “Shatter Me” extension!

If you missed my first book news post, you can check it out here!

I kind of dig this “reporter” feeling when I gather some of the small book news that happened this week. I wouldn’t have made a blog post if it didn’t include the authors of two book series I’ve thoroughly enjoyed.

So here we go!

Review: “Fire” by Kristin Cashore

Right so… I thought maybe if I gave this a few more days, I might come to like it a bit more. Nope. #sorrynotsorry and all that jazz. Look, I know this isn’t a sequel, but that didn’t mean I didn’t want more of Katsa and Po! But did I get? No. But I did get a slow-burning romance, and that I did like… And that might be one of the only things I did.

FairyLoot’s March Unboxing!

When FairyLoot sent out their monthly newsletter to announce the theme of March’s box, I had to get a box! I’ve crept most of the new releases for the next few months that I actually had a good idea what the book was…and yes, I was right (and I wasn’t disappointed).

Now this is my 2nd FairyLoot box, and while it wasn’t my favorite, the quality of items are top notch, and persuades me even more to keep getting the box despite the $50 price tag (I live in the U.S. which makes shipping fairly expensive as FairyLoot is based in the U.K.)

Review: “The Valiant” by Lesley Livingston

Well, I was definitely pleasantly surprised by this book. I mean, I had a feeling I would like it, and so while reading this book, I remembered how much I enjoy reading historical fiction that has to do with ancient Rome. (Perhaps this is because I took Latin in college and my professor was one of the THE coolest professors with a wealth of knowledge about this era.) It also had that forbidden romance trope is like the THING for me, and I’ll read almost every book with that trope in it. 🙂 Unfortunately, I’m having a hard time putting my thoughts in coherent words, and I think that’s why I’ve delayed writing a review for it for a long time now, lol.

Review: “Winter” by Marissa Meyer

Aw, guys, I loved this book. I admit I was hesitant to start reading it because I heard nothing but great things about it, but I’m glad to say that I wasn’t disappointed. 🙂 There were a few things that irked me, and I didn’t think were fully resolved, leaving things rather open-ended, but overall, a lovely read. Well, I say read, but I started Cinder as an audiobook and continued to listen to it. The narrator, Rebecca Soler, does a great job!
