Book Review: The Queen's Resistance (The Queen's Rising #2) by: Rebecca Ross

Release Date: March 5, 2019
from Harper Teen
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the publisher via edelweiss and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"The highly anticipated sequel to The Queen’s Rising!

Finally, Brienna is a mistress of knowledge and is settling into her role as the daughter of Davin MacQuinn, a disgraced lord who returned to Maevana to reclaim his house. Though she’d just survived a revolution, one that will finally return a queen to the throne, she faces another difficult challenge. She must prove herself trustworthy to the MacQuinns. But as Queen Isolde Kavanagh’s closest confidant, she’ll have to balance serving her father’s house as well as her country. And then there’s Cartier, a wholly separate but desirable factor in her new life.

Aodhan Morgane, formerly known as Cartier √Čvariste, is adjusting to the stark contrast between his pre-rebellion life in Valenia as a master of knowledge and his current one as the lord of a fallen house. During his castle’s restoration, he discovers a ten-year-old boy named Tomas, whose past and parentage are a complete mystery. So when Cartier’s former pupil Brienna is as taken with Tomas as he is, he lets his mind wander—what if he doesn’t have to raise him or his house alone?

As the Lannon trial rapidly approaches, Brienna and Cartier must put their feelings aside to concentrate on forging alliances, executing justice, and ensuring that no one interferes with the queen’s coronation. But resistance is rumbling among the old regime’s supporters, who are desperate to find a weakness in the rebels’ forces. And nothing makes a person more vulnerable than deep-seated love."

My Thoughts:

My high fantasy loving heart was so happy that The Queen’s Rising got a sequel and I really enjoyed The Queen’s Resistance. This sequel explored the weeks following a successful revolution and I thought it was such an interesting perspective to take. I love this world and the power dynamics and how it’s really the women who hold so much of the power.

Brienna is an amazing heroine. She is fierce and independent and wicked smart. She always has an idea or a plan and she is able to reason through things and see things others may not. But I also love her compassion for others and how she’s willing to give so much of herself. And I was so excited to get Cartier’s perspective this time around. I love that boy and it was so great to get inside his head. The way he loves Brienna with his whole heart just makes me melt. 

My favorite thing about this book though is the relationship between Isolde (the Queen) and Brienna. They have formed such a bond and Isolde values Brienna’s counsel above all others. I just love seeing this kind of relationship depicted in books. Because women are strong and when we support one another we can be even stronger. On the relationship note though, I will say I do wish the romance between Brienna and Cartier had been a bit more forefront. It was definitely more a part of the story compared to book one, but there were just a few situations this time around where I was like I wish we could get a Brienna and Cartier conversation about this. But again, I’m a romance junkie and I really did love them together.

The Queen’s Resistance took me a bit to get through, about halfway through the book I just stalled out, but then I borrowed the audiobook from my library and switched to that, and man did I fly through the rest of the story. I love that this book is a bit quieter of a fantasy and has much more focus on the political than the action. I mean there’s action, but to me it gives high fantasy readers a different paced read and I love that. Just all in all, The Queen’s Resistance delivers.

Book Review: Stepsister by: Jennifer Donnelly

Release Date: May 14, 2019
from Scholastic
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the publisher and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"Isabelle should be blissfully happy – she’s about to win the handsome prince. Except Isabelle isn’t the beautiful girl who lost the glass slipper and captured the prince’s heart. She’s the ugly stepsister who’s cut off her toes to fit into Cinderella’s shoe ... which is now filling with blood.

When the prince discovers Isabelle’s deception, she is turned away in shame. It’s no more than she deserves: she is a plain girl in a world that values beauty; a feisty girl in a world that wants her to be pliant.

Isabelle has tried to fit in. To live up to her mother’s expectations. To be like her stepsister. To be sweet. To be pretty. One by one, she has cut away pieces of herself in order to survive a world that doesn’t appreciate a girl like her. And that has made her mean, jealous, and hollow.

Until she gets a chance to alter her destiny and prove what ugly stepsisters have always known: it takes more than heartache to break a girl."

My Thoughts:

I am a sucker for retellings, so when this showed up in the mail, I immediately knew it was going on my TBR. I loved that this was more in line with the original darker tale and I especially loved how it took the story and gave it such a feminist take.

Our story starts off at the end of the classic Cinderella tale when Isabelle has just cut off her toes. From here we learn that there is much more to the stepsisters than we had ever known. I adored all of the characters and I especially loved how strong and different all of the women were. All of the women in this story have their own strength and flaws and personalities. Society tells them they have to be one thing, even if it’s against everything they want. I loved how Isabelle raged against that and I especially loved watching her learn what makes her great. Isabelle is fierce and bold and stubborn and refuses to back down or do what she’s told. She’s a girl after my own heart and I adored her in every way.

Other than Isabelle though, I truly loved the cast of characters. Tavi is so smart and so great. Felix is just, ugh, a sweetheart and he stole my heart. Ella is so good and kind and much more than just a pretty face. Hugo despite being well… him… won me over. And Chance stole the show. He stole every single scene he was in. I would not complain if we somehow got to see him again.

All in all, Stepsister was a fantastic feminist retelling of the Cinderella story you thought you knew. It’s the kind of book that makes you feel strong and want to rage against the world and the box it tries to put you in and then rise up and shatter that glass ceiling. It shows that women contain multitudes and can be strong in a multitude of ways and they can be more than the world tells them to be. It’s just an all-around good read and to cap this off I’m going to leave you with my favorite quote from the book.
“Go now, girl. Remake the world.”

On My Shelf: Strange The Dreamer by: Laini Taylor

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.

I adored the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, so of course I had to have this one. I need to make time for this one because I am sure the writing is gorgeous and I know people have adored this book.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Recent Reads: Fairy Tales and Squad 312 and Healers

Recent Reads is feature here on the blog. The point is to feature books I've read recently in quick recap fashion with fun info-graphics. The info-graphics came from the Bookly app, which is a great app for bloggers. You can log quotes and thoughts and track your reading stats (and no I'm not paid for this, I just really like this app). Recently I dove into worlds of fairy tales, Squad 312, and healers.

Book Review: Aurora Rising (The Aurora Cycle #1) by: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Release Date: May 7, 2019
from Knopf Books For Young Readers
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"From the internationally bestselling authors of THE ILLUMINAE FILES comes an epic new science fiction adventure.

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

They're not the heroes we deserve. They're just the ones we could find. Nobody panic."

My Thoughts:

I have been in a bit of a reading funk these past few months, there just hasn’t been much that has really been grabbing me but man oh man did Aurora Rising grab me. It has been so long since I have loved a book this much and it’s easily one of my favorite books this year. This book is like Star Trek but with a band of misfits and infinitely more sass. It is everything I could have hoped for and more. 

What truly makes this book is the cast of characters. I want to join Squad 312. None of these characters should fit together or were ever meant to be a team but they just work. Tyler is just utterly refreshing as a leader. He wants to follow the rules and isn’t this brash reckless leader who can get away with being reckless just because he is great. He works hard and followed the rules all his life. But he is also willing to do what is right but he struggles along the way and I just loved him because he is such a good and smart guy and a great leader. And it is so entirely on brand for me that Kal was the favorite of them all… Kal is essentially our resident badass space elf. Kal is quiet and broody and a jackass a lot of the time so naturally I found him incredibly endearing. In Fin we have our sarcastic asshole mechanic… and I love him. Zila is quiet and ridiculously smart and in love with her disruptor. Scarlet is excellent at reading people and always has a comment and I love the bond between her and Tyler (they are twins and love excellent sibling relationship portrayal). And how could I not love Cat… always ready to speak her mind and be the badass that she is. And then we have our girl Aurora. She is fantastic. She is clearly out of her depth and nothing around her is familiar but she perseveres and fights and really comes into her own. 

This book is so hard to put down. There is so much action and drama and the characters all play off one another so well. It is the perfect kind of sci-fi where it has the true sci-fi feel but you are never bogged down by details and information that slow down the plot. The plot keeps moving and dropping more and more information as you go along. I loved all the twists and turns as the story moved along and I cannot wait to see where the series goes next.

All in all, Aurora Rising was a fantastic read and it was exactly the book I needed right now. I can’t even fully express how much I loved this book and I want everyone to read it.

May Releases I Am Looking Forward To

This is a relatively new feature I have started on the blog. Each month I am going to feature the upcoming releases I am most looking forward to. May is shaping up to be a good book month.

May 7, 2019
I ADORE this cover and it sounds so good. I have been feeling a good sci fi lately and this sounds perfect for that. I will admit I didn't love Illuminae, but that was more the format than anything else, so I am really looking forward to this one.

May 7, 2019
I am always up for a Samantha Young read. This has been a good series and I am so glad she is continuing it. 

May 14, 2019
This one sounds so ridiculously good. I love retellings and I especially love when they go back to the original and darker fairy tale.

May 21, 2019
This one sounds so good! Murder and visions and ghosts... sign me up!

Book Review: Forever Moore (Forbidden Love #2) by: Riley Hart & Christina Lee

Release Date: April 26, 2019
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"With his raven hair and snow-white skin, Lord Ansil Eirwin draws unwanted attention wherever he goes. After his father’s untimely death, Ansil is set to become Duke of Ravenswood on his next birthday. The gallant and timid lord would never dream of shirking responsibility, so he subverts his desires in order to please his mother and new stepfather, Reginald.

Orien Moore, known as the Huntsman, lives on the fringes and has forsaken close bonds with anyone, even the misfits he has taken in. When Orien is called upon by his brother, Reginald, to kill the pampered future duke, it is the perfect opportunity to seek revenge against his power-hungry brother. Orien formulates a plan to use Reginald’s vicious request to his advantage by kidnapping Ansil and holding him hostage until he can fulfill his birthright.

Soon Orien realizes that Ansil is nothing like he’d expected. Kind and joyful, Ansil enchants Orien and his ragtag group. And Ansil, in turn, cannot help but be curious about the gruff huntsman as Orien’s vulnerabilities are exposed. Their mutual interest transforms into affection, followed by overwhelming desire. But they are living on borrowed time.

With Reginald seeking power in Ravenswood, they have no way of knowing what will transpire once Orien returns Ansil to his proper place in society. The only certainty is that the odds are stacked against them. Will the young lord and his huntsman ever have the chance to experience the happily ever after they’ve found in each other’s arms?

***PLEASE NOTE: FOREVER MOORE is a romantic fairy tale—minus the magic—that features one reluctant lord, one brooding huntsman, and plenty of angsty, forbidden love. It’s loosely based on a treasured fairy tale in a make-believe setting that isn’t part of any specific time period and doesn’t play by any traditional rules."

My Thoughts:

Last year I read Ever After by these authors and I just absolutely adored it, so when I heard they were going back to that style and another fairy tale retelling, I was so excited. And then I saw that cover and was just like WOWOWOWOWOW I need this book and in the end the book delivered. I thought this was a super sweet retelling.

Orien and Ansil are both so great and I loved their dynamic. Orien is gruff and slightly cranky and Ansil is sweet and optimistic. So on paper it doesn’t seem like they should work but they do. These two may not get off to the easiest start, but I loved watching them together. I also loved how relatively low angst their relationship was. It wasn’t without its problems, but it was much more sweet than drama filled and I really enjoyed that. I also loved that the focus was heavily on their relationship. There may be a lot going on around these two, but at the heart of the story it was about two people coming into their own and finding what they want in life. I also really loved the secondary cast of characters, especially Doc and Thalia.

All in all, Forever Moore was just an overall good and sweet read. I am loving these authors’ spins on classic fairy tales and I so hope they continue with these twists and can’t wait to see what they do next.

89 Thoughts I Had While Re-Reading Crown Of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Release Date: August 27, 2013
from Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Goodreads | Amazon

""A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.

It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."

From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for."

My Thoughts:

1. Spoilers for the entire series to come.
2. This is the thing with Chaol… he doesn’t ever fully accept the darkest parts of Celaena.
3. “Are you still acting like the King’s Champion or are you back to being Celaena?” She’s always been so good at wearing different faces.
4. Ugh stupid Archer.
5. Aww poor Roland brought here just to be used.
6. Celaena spends so much time avoiding her past in Rifthold because she’s not ready yet and it’s heartbreaking.
7. Awww I somehow forgot that Wesley took out Rourke Farran.
8. Sammmmmmmmmmm *sobs forever* It. Never. Gets. Easier.
9. Mort! I love him and his sass. Wonder if he’s still chilling down in those tunnels bored with nobody to talk to.
11. “Be grateful I consider you a worthy accessory” *snorts*
12. *hiss* Archer *hiss*
13. What they do to Kaltain is horrendous.
14. I love that these small moments of kindness come back to help… Celaena gives Kaltain a cloak when everyone else had forgotten her and it gets her a wyrd key.
15. “Do you think a Court like that could ever rise again?” IT WILL AND IT’LL BE EVEN BETTER
16. Blah Archer… he makes me so cranky.
17. Archer plays her so well. But this is another learning moment for Celaena. She learns from this and in the future her plans account for this kind of stuff.
18. “She has to be an imposter” I MEAN OBVIOUSLY
19. “I worry because I care. Gods help me I know I shouldn’t but I do. So I always tell you to be careful because I will always care what happens.”
20. This scene where she outraces the gloriella poison always stresses me out.
21. This Rena Goldsmith song is INSANE Aelin and Rowan foreshadowing.
22. DORIAN APPRECIATION MOMENT. When he realizes how Celaena feels he lets her go. He doesn’t get this crazy macho notion that he has to fight for her and realizes they weren’t meant to be.
23. I’m so done with judgmental Nehemia.
24. And Nehemia pretending to be surprised by everything. I know everyone loves her, but nope, sorry.
25. “Not that there’d ever been an attack on the palace and not that anyone would ever be foolish enough to try during a Royal Ball.” And that’s exactly what Celaena does a few books later haha.
26. The sweetness of this dancing scene.
27. Seriously though. With each re-read I like Nehemia less and less. She purposely misleads Celaena even when she is flat out asking the right questions or is just right.
28. And the whole Chaol and Celaena will never understand and have the responsibilities she and Dorian have… please we all know where this goes and just how much Celaena is going to sacrifice.
29. Also the judgy-ness of how dare Celaena do what she had to do for her freedom… like what… she should have stayed in Endovier and not worked for the King when this opportunity presented itself. Come on.
30. Every time Archer shows up I want to reach into the book and strangle him.
31. Aww poor Roland with the black ring on his hand… he didn’t stand a chance.
32. Baby Dorian finding his powers.
33. “Where are you going?” “To get you chocolate cake.” LOVE.
34. “The Court that Nehemia dreamed of could change the world.” YOU HAVE NO IDEA CELAENA.
36. “Hide from fate all you like, but it will soon find you.”
37. “I stole her from the Lord of Xandria.” I cannot.
38. I really wonder if poor Mort is bored and forgotten.
39. Again thinking of her past and then a mention of fire.
40. Gods poor Celaena… she has so much to work through still.
41. Chaol’s birthday is such a sweet scene.
42. Chaol makes me nuts. He struggles with Celaena being an assassin and then when she tells him she isn’t killing for the King he has a fit. I don’t doubt Chaol loved Celaena, because he did, but he never fully accepted certain parts of her.
43. “Does your love for yourself know no bounds?” “Absolutely none.”
44. Nehemia and Elena. Screw you both.
45. “One of them has to break.” Ugh. You both suck.
46. These people were so damn stupid kidnapping Chaol. So damn stupid. Like who did they think they were trying to draw out? She doesn’t have a reputation for talking first.
47. “Your little assassin” hahahahahaha
49. And Ren holding this against Celaena later is such shit. Acting like she was wrong when they kidnapped Chaol.
50. And Archer drove a wedge between Chaol and Celaena perfectly. The bastard.
51. I don’t care that Nehemia actually orchestrated her death herself. Archer is a piece of crap.
52. Also this is horrible of Nehemia to do this. To herself and Celaena and her family. There HAD to be another way to get Celaena to come back to herself.
53. You know. The first time I read this book I was devastated when Chaol and Celaena fell apart. But now that I’ve come back a few times I get it. It wasn’t that Chaol didn’t tell Celaena. It was that he chose the King over her and knowing what we know now, that’s such a huge thing. When it came down to it, Chaol chose the Kings secret over telling Celaena that her best friend was in danger.
54. Also in hindsight, they weren’t together all that long.
55. Seriously they were together like four seconds because it all fell apart.
56. Kay I’m not gonna talk about this scene anymore because it’s sad and I get annoyed and everything just goes to shit. I’ve ranted about this to my Wifey too much now so I'll spare everyone the details.
57. “Make sure they’re punished one day, every last one of them.”
58. “There will be no more friends like her” you’re right, there will be better.
59. Seriously. With every re-read I love Dorian more. He is so good and so strong and he respects his friends but tells them like it is.
60. Grave deserves everything he got.
61. Just. Kill. Archer. Now.
62. Ugh this bastard. Chaol’s father is ugh.
63. Screw. You. Elena.
64. I love Dorian and Celaena’s friendship so so much. He helps her when she really needs someone.
65. “Then Celaena could become a powerhouse” HA HA HA YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW.
66. “Then you will always have a place here” LOVE YOU DORIAN.
67. Wyrd keys… and here we go.
68. “Nameless is my price.”
69. Yes Dorian. You tell it like it is.
70. Witch slayer.
71. See this is the thing… Chaol always doubts Celaena when he shouldn’t because he never fully trusts her. And it’s not a bad thing, but just, they weren’t right for one another in the end.
72. Love it. Dorian just follows Celaena.
73. This monster thing obviously wants to eat Celaena and Dorian but it’s also kinda sad… this was a person that they King and Perrington destroyed.
74. It’s a testament to Celaena that the moment she realizes what is really going on with Kaltain she goes down to try and save her… to save the girl who tried to kill her.
75. Bad idea Celaena. Bad bad idea.
76. Even in death Nehemia is being horrible.
79. But again, this is a learning moment from Celaena. She doesn’t make the same mistake twice.
80. Shit. I forgot Archer knows who she really is.
81. But see here’s the thing. Even though she finds out Archer lied and orchestrated a lot, Chaol still didn’t tell her.
82. There’s my fire breathing bitch queen.
83. See this annoys me. Chaol is almost disgusted by her fae side. In hindsight, SJM was showing us from the beginning that he wasn’t endgame, so many just didn’t see it.
85. “Wondered if he should follow her into that ancient darkness.” Looking back this is amazing foreshadowing and such double meaning. Yes, Celaena is actually walking into the dark but it’s also a reference to the dark road she’s gonna follow in Heir of Fire. And right here Chaol doesn’t follow her… but Rowan will.
86. Ahhh Chaol you think you’re doing the right thing here but *sigh* well you are doing to right thing but not for the reasons you think. You are however, sending Celaena to her mate.
87. This scene is forever heartbreaking.
88. Such an amazing ending.
89. I remember how blown away I was when I first read it. I suspected but still damn.

Wrap Up:
It’s weird. When I first read Throne Of Glass, I obviously loved the book but it was Crown Of Midnight where I was like OH so this is two books in now and it’s still fantastic, clearly this is going to be a new obsession. This was the book that sealed the deal for me, but now I think it’s my least favorite of the entire series. Still love it obviously, but I think I love the others more. Still amazing though and still gonna re-read forever and ever.

Top Ten Tuesday: Rainy Day Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke And The Bookish and now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.

I think the topic this week can be a bit different for everyone. For me personally, if I am staying in on a rainy day to solely read I love curling up with a swoony romance that I can read cover to cover in one day.
