Book Review: Winter

Winter   Winter

By: Marissa Meyer

Genres: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Romance, Young Adult

Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend—the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?

After a month of reading bits and pieces of it when I could, Winter has finally come to an end. While it wasn’t perfect, it managed to capture all the right high and low points that made it a fun roller coaster ride of emotions from start to finish.

Its been so loooooong. Hello again everyone! I kind of fell off the face of the earth for a while mostly because my procrastination habits caught up with me and made my last few weeks of the semester stressful and bitter. Its exam week but since classes are pretty much wrapped up, I figured it would be safe to venture back out into the real world and give my blog some much needed love.  So this week’s topic is a review of my top ten books of the year. This year was very touch and go with my reading selections. I had some that I loved and some that I REALLY hated, with more of the latter, much to my chagrin. Below is a list of my favorites in preference order.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Fall (and Winter) TBR

Hello everyone! It’s another week, another Tuesday. I’ve been incredibly bored the last couple of days because I actually managed to get too far ahead on my homework (I know, I’m still wondering if the real me got abducted by aliens) but my reading selections still aren’t wowing me. I decided to go back to some of my old roots and picked up a Nora Roberts romance. I’m not finding it as thrilling I used to find her books, but it’s not horrible, so I’m staying optimistic. As for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic, I’m going to be sharing some books I’m eagerly awaiting so I can add them to my monstrous TBR pile. As I don’t have enough Fall releases on my list, I’m also going to talk about some Winter 2015-2016 releases as well. This list isn’t ranked in any particular order. Hope you enjoy!
