Posted 4th December 2017 by lucy in Book Reviews, Book Wrap Ups / 0 Comments

 

During the month of November I read a total of seven books, three shy of my goal of ten.  Below are my reviews of each book I read.

 

WARCROSS BY MARIE LU

Warcross by Marie Lu is about Emika Chen who works as a bounty hunter in New York City, she is also a hacker. When Emika hacks into a very popular game Warcross during the opening ceremony of the games in Tokyo, she is contacted by the creator of the game to become a wildcard in the Warcross games. Emika accepts the offer and is a wildcard in the game. However Emika learns that Hideo, the creator of Warcross wanted Emika to spy as Hideo thinks someone is trying to kill him. A romance may bloom, but you just have to read and see. I gave this book a four out of five stars, as it was great, but I feel like something bothered me, but I’ve just forgotten.

WONDER WOMEN: WARBRINGER BY LEIGH BARDUGO

Wonder Women: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo is about a teenage Diana Prince trying to prove herself to her sisters, however she breaks a law to saw a mortal Alia, however it is revealed that Alia is a war bringer, meaning if she isn’t killed, war will come. Diana must act quickly to rid Alia of her war bringer powers. I gave this book a four out of five stars. I did enjoy it, but I feel like it was slow in parts when I was reading it.

DEPRESSION & OTHER MAGIC TRICKS BY SABRINA BENAIM

Depression & Other Magic by Sabrina Benaim is a book of poetry, I enjoyed this, and as always a quick and easy read. I did enjoy reading this collection of poetry and gave it a four out of five stars.

ALMOST MIDNIGHT BY RAINBOW ROWELL

Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell is a collection of two short stories focusing on midnight in two stories. The first story focuses on Mag and a New Years Eve party through the years. The second story focuses on Elena and a number of midnight Star Wars premieres. I gave this book a four out of five stars. I did enjoy it, but it wasn’t quite five stars for me.

THE PRINCESS SAVES HERSELF IN THIS ONE BY AMANDA LOVELACE

The Princess Saves Herself In This One by Amanda Lovelace is another collection of poetry which has poetry directed to the female audience. I enjoyed this book and gave it a four out of five stars.

A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES BY SARAH J. MAAS

A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas is about a girl Feyre, who is a huntress. Feyre kills an animal she shouldn’t and is taken away to an enchanted court. Feyre figures out why she is wanted, and has a habit of not listening. I did enjoy this book, but some parts didn’t grab me, therefore I have given it a four out of five stars.

ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND BY LEWIS CARROL

Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carrol is a classic children’s story, that I have never actually read before. I did enjoy this book and gave it a five out of five stars. There’s something about children’s books that I really enjoy.
