Renegades (Renegades, #1)

Author: Marissa Meyer
Publication Date: November 7, 2017
Genre: Fantasy
Format: Audiobook
Rating: ★★★★

Synopsis

Secret Identities. Extraordinary Powers. She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies — humans with extraordinary abilities — who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone… except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice — and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both


I love Marissa Meyer’s other series, the Lunar Chronicles. So I was really excited to start reading her new series. I absolutely love the covers and can’t wait to see the final book’s cover release.

March 2019 Wrap Up

I have consistently been reading more and more books each month which is great! I actually might even complete my reading goal this yeah which is something I haven’t accomplished at all these past couple of years. I think the reason I was able to read so much this month was because of the fact that I had spring break this month which gave me a whole week to read.

I have not posted reviews for any of these books yet, even though I’ve been meaning to write them for what seems likes ages now. Hopefully I’ll have one review up later today and the rest of them posted sometimes in the next week.

A Quiet Kind of Thunder

A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard: ★★★

This book was such a cute and light read. It was something that made me happy and smiley while I was reading it.

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d Like to Switch Places With

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

  1. Nova Artino
Renegades (Renegades, #1)

Nova has such a cool superpower in the series and she also has a cool super villain family and not to mention her love interest is an absolute babe.

Review: The Fever King

The Fever King (Feverwake, #1)

Title: The Fever King
Author: Victoria Lee
Publication Date: March 01 2019
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Rating: ★★★★

Synopsis

In the former United States, sixteen-year-old Noam Álvaro wakes up in a hospital bed, the sole survivor of the viral magic that killed his family and made him a technopath. His ability to control technology attracts the attention of the minister of defense and thrusts him into the magical elite of the nation of Carolinia.

The son of undocumented immigrants, Noam has spent his life fighting for the rights of refugees fleeing magical outbreaks—refugees Carolinia routinely deports with vicious efficiency. Sensing a way to make change, Noam accepts the minister’s offer to teach him the science behind his magic, secretly planning to use it against the government. But then he meets the minister’s son—cruel, dangerous, and achingly beautiful—and the way forward becomes less clear.

Caught between his purpose and his heart, Noam must decide who he can trust and how far he’s willing to go in pursuit of the greater good.


This book was so intriguing that I finished in about two sittings. I would close out of my kindle and would immediately want to know what happened next so I would open it back up and continue reading. It was just that consuming.

February 2019 Wrap Up

I successfully read more this month than I did last month and I’m very proud of myself for it. Even with school and work getting in the way I managed to read/listen to three books this month! One more than last month! Hopefully as the year goes on I’ll be able to read more books each month.

Nightblood (Frostblood Saga, #3)

Nightblood by Elly Blake: ★★★★

This is the final book in the Nightblood Saga and it was a good ending to the series. I didn’t like it as much as the second book which is definitely my favorite but overall Nightblood was still enjoyable. I’ll have a more detailed review up eventually.

The Fever King (Feverwake, #1)

The Fever King by Victoria Lee: ★★★★

I got to read this book early due to the fact that it was part of Amazon’s First Reads program for this month. I’ll talk more about the program in my review for this book when I get to writing and posting it. However this book was so intriguing, there was so much that happened. It was a mix of urban fantasy and political intrigue which I really liked.

Renegades (Renegades, #1)

Renegades by Marissa Meyer: ★★★★

This is the first audiobook I listened to ever and I really enjoyed the narrators for the book. I think the narration was done really well and it’s a huge part of why I enjoyed the book. I didn’t love this book as much as I love Meyer’s other series but it was still enjoyable. More to come in my review whenever I get to it.

I don’t know if I’m going to post a March TBR only because I don’t really plan what books I want to read. I just kind of go with the flow and hope that I get to read something. Also don’t you love that I haven’t written reviews for any of these books yet. I’ll get to them eventually! I swear!

Review: The Wicked King

The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air, #2)

Title: The Wicked King
Author: Holly Black
Publication Date: January 8th 2019
Genre: Fantasy
Rating: ★★★★★

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. 


I have reviewed the first book, The Cruel Prince, in this series here

Wow wow wow. I love this book with all my heart. Holly Black is an absolute genius and I wish I could be her friend. The world that Black has created is gorgeous and with each page that I had read I fell in love with even more. This review might be a little bit of a mess as I try to write my feelings about this book as coherently as possible.
