{Arc Review} Killing November by Adriana Mather

Book Summary:
It’s a school completely off the grid, hidden by dense forest and surrounded by traps. There’s no electricity, no internet, and an eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes include everything from Knife-Throwing and Poisons to the Art of Deception and Historical Analysis. And all of the students are children of the world’s most elite strategists—training to become assassins, counselors, spies, and master impersonators. Into this world walks November Adley, who quickly discovers that friends are few in a school where personal revelations are discouraged and competition is everything. When another student is murdered, all eyes turn to November, who must figure out exactly how she fits into the school’s bizarre strategy games before she is found guilty of the crime…or becomes the killer’s next victim.

My Review:

What happens you wake up in a strange boarding school for assassins?

For November, she has no clue what her father was thinking on sending her here. The school is divided into families, kids are train to be killers. The question is, how does November fit into all this. No idea she had been kept hidden for years from family secret. After a student is killed, she must find answers to her pass before it’s to late.

Killing November was such a fast pace read. I did love everything about it and enjoy half the characters in it. I did finish this book in one sitting. Looking forward to book two. If you love boarding school books and assassins, then this book prefect for you. It comes out March 26th.

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review} Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

Book Summary:
A divided nation. Four Queens. A ruthless pickpocket. A noble messenger. And the murders that unite them.
Get in quick, get out quicker.
These are the words Keralie Corrington lives by as the preeminent dipper in the Concord, the central area uniting the four quadrants of Quadara. She steals under the guidance of her mentor Mackiel, who runs a black market selling their bounty to buyers desperate for what they can’t get in their own quarter. For in the nation of Quadara, each quarter is strictly divided from the other. Four queens rule together, one from each region:
Toria: the intellectual quarter that values education and ambition
Ludia: the pleasure quarter that values celebration, passion, and entertainment
Archia: the agricultural quarter that values simplicity and nature
Eonia: the futurist quarter that values technology, stoicism and harmonious community
When Keralie intercepts a comm disk coming from the House of Concord, what seems like a standard job goes horribly wrong. Upon watching the comm disks, Keralie sees all four queens murdered in four brutal ways. Hoping that discovering the intended recipient will reveal the culprit – information that is bound to be valuable bartering material with the palace – Keralie teams up with Varin Bollt, the Eonist messenger she stole from, to complete Varin’s original job and see where it takes them.

My Review:

Four queens rule the land, peacefully for years, but what happens when they die. In this new read , you are throw in this murder mystery. Who has more to gain, when the queens dies?

I really enjoyed this book a lot. The storyline was original and something different. I did enjoy the main characters in the book. It told in a couple point of views, even of the queens story.

Keralie is the best thief around town. In order to survive, she steals what she can, has cut herself off with her family. Her latest target, will turn her life upside. Somehow she gets tangle up with the four dead queens. Now it up to her to find the answers before it’s to late.

This book is a fast pace read. I do love the cover to it. This is perfect for those who love mysteries books. It was neat seeing how different the queens rule their land, but still come together as rulers and friends. This book is coming out Feb 26th. There is an barnes and nobles editon I really want to get.

Looking for a good new book, then pick up a copy of Four Dead Queens.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Stolen Time by Danielle Rollins

Book Summary:
Seattle, 1913 // Dorothy is trapped. Forced into an engagement to a wealthy man just so she and her mother can live comfortably for the rest of their days, she’ll do anything to escape. Including sneaking away from her wedding and bolting into the woods to disappear.

My Review:

Stolen Time was such a fantastic read. I love how original the storyline was. Also felt very connected with the characters. I’m so looking forward to reading more book by Danielle Rollins.

Book Summary:

Four walls. One window. No way to escape. Hannah knows there’s been a mistake. She didn’t need to be institutionalized. What happened to her roommate at her summer program was an accident. As soon as the doctors and judge figure out that she isn’t a danger to herself or others, she can go home to start her senior year.

My Review:

A Danger to Herself and Others was such an insightful read. I enjoyed the story and the characters in it. I was so engrossed in the story, that I was shock with some of the twists in the book. This is my third book I read from the author. I loved her other reads, R.I.P Eliza Heart and Faceless. She is known to have some good twists in her books.

Hannah in the book, we first see her lock up in a mental hospital. She is accuse of being involved of her roommate accident. Laying low in a mental hospital, can question a person’s insanity. What’s the truth with Hannah’s roommate mystery fall?

This book leaves you guessing what’s real or not, as you guys dig deep inside Hannah mind. Is she really crazy or it just an misunderstanding? I already want to pick up this book and reread it all over again. It is a real page turner. Looking for another good new read. Then you in for a treat. The book came out yesterday.

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review} A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

Book Summary:
In a lush, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer gives readers another compulsively readable romance perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer.
Fall in love, break the curse.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

My Review:

A Dark So Lonely Curse was such a perfect Beauty and the Beast retelling. I love how how the story is set in modern times. Also the cover blew me away. Enjoy how the the two main characters interact with each other.

I thought Harper was kick ass in her own way in the book. She did not let her disabilities, stop her from helping a girl in trouble. Which would she end yup stuck into an crazy magical world. Can she use her wits and charm to get back home?

Prince Rhen in the book was such an jerk. He was so desperate breaking the curse, he end up kidnapping girls from other words. When Harper accidentally comes along, he is in over his head. Will Harper be the one to tame the beast?

This book was such an quick read. I would read this over and over. Also what I love in this book, the prince is not really a beast form all the time. He just a jerk prince that is cursed. What kind curse he has, well you must read for self. The book comes out January 31st.

Happy Reading!!!!!

{Arc Review} Slayer by Kristen White

Book Summary:
Into every generation a Slayer is born…
Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Nina’s mother is a prominent member of the Watcher’s Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.
Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.
Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Nina’s father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen One—she’s the last Slayer, ever. Period.
As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, there’s plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Nina’s dreams…
But it’s not until bodies start turning up that Nina’s new powers will truly be tested—because someone she loves might be next.
One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard.

My Review:

I’m in love in with Slayer. Brought back so many memories of Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. Prefect for fans of new and old. Love the idea we get inside look in the watcher world. You get to see how hard the watchers train and be chosen to look over a slayer. I also did like the characters in the book. Not everything is evolved around Buffy.

I did enjoy reading the twins story, Nina and Artemis. They are so different from each other in the book. Artemis is the favorite and best fighter at school, while Nina is on the sidelines doing medical. Somehow Nina developed slayer powers after Buffy had ruin things for the watchers. Now she must learn to accept her faith. Will she be ready to save the world like Buffy?

The book was a quick read. It did bring up some characters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer show. Love how Buffy shows up once in a while in Nina’s dreams. It was a nice take on the world. It was neat seeing how people react on being the slayer. Slayer comes out tommorow and worth the read.

Happy Reading!!!!!!

{Arc Review} The Wicked King by Holly Black

Book Summary:
You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.
After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

My Review:

This book was so awesome. A little slow start but picks up pretty good in the middle. There are so many emotions within the book. You guys have until January 9th for it to come out. Will leave you some gifs on how I feel about the book.

So kinda beginning of book just was like waiting for something big to happen..

This is me in the middle and towards the end….

Then the ending has me like this..

This book is action packed, very little romance, and lots of shocking twists you don’t see coming. So be prepared when jumping into this series again. Also can I say how pretty this cover is. I’m excited to go to signing event. Now need to count down to book 3.

Happy Reading!!!
