A court of wings and ruin

I was so excited for wings and ruin. I can’t believe I have already read it. I am in the middle of studying for my exams as they befall me and I still could not stop myself from reading it. I have read mist and fury so many times in the past year, I was ecstatic to be back in Rhys and feyre’s world, in prythian.
This book is written so well, the story flows so smoothly, you just cant stop reading. I loved feyre in this one, started to maybe dislike Lucien a little less too,  this books rocks!I was grinning and laughing most of the book. Best characters, best series ever were written. This book gave me tears of joy, it is everything and more. Sarah Maas is a genius. I am in love,. Oh man, you have not lived until you have read this series.

I Just do not know what do with myself after reading this, it is so amazing. The twists that come wreck me, you just do not see so many things coming, so many romances blooming that I can’t wait to see what next year brings.

I love how Maas writes her characters, brave imperfect souls fighting for good, how she brings everyone together, all her characters are so amazing, and her words, her love, everything. The love that is between the characters, the friendships, how they all break and heal together, so inspiring.There were so many characters in this book, but all unique, and every character I shall remember. I loved how every character got enough space and the story was not just focussed on the leads.

”what we think to be our greatest weakness can sometimes be our biggest strength. And… the most unlikely person can alter the course of history.”

I was so emotional during the war, on the brink of crying through all those pages.  I absolutely loved cassian, he is one of the best characters in here, the hand he had been dealt, how he was shown and glorified in this book, his kindness, and love for life, his humility, oh man after this book he maybe my fave character. So many twists in this book that I did not see coming, the unexpected loveliness of this book makes me more in love with this series.there are emotional scenes but nothing that would maybe make you cry, surely break your heart though.So many things happened in this book, so much of what Sarah thought and included, its marvelous, I did not want this book to end ever. I loved how this book was not finished at a cliff hanger, its like I can rest well if the series ended here but this book continues and am so glad for the same.

What I love about maas’s writing is her characters do not have a hero complex, they are not pure and perfect, they are healing and trying, they make mistakes and bad calls, they fight and forgive, they all are relatable and human, inspiring and imperfectly perfect. Her characters make me forgive myself, her characters have saved my life in so many ways, these books, all her books, but especially a court of mist and fury and a court of wings and ruin shall forever remain special to me. They inspire me to be okay with everything I want, do and am, its okay to make decisions that may seem wrong but are right for me, to be okay with your flaws and your strengths, to brave who you are. She has inspired me to understand and know what I want in the love of my life, to love yourself enough to not settle.

I hope I can convey my gratefulness in person someday to her.

rebel of the sands- book

I really liked this book.

There were some twists that I could predict, some were so unexpected. I have never read a middle eastern based book before, so that was interesting. I liked amani’s character, she fought for herself always.

Apparently all sorts of sexist things are coming my way to read and watch, the sexist nature of this book is mind churning, its sort of like a  Muslim community based, so many wives, no say to girls, it is nice to come across characters that are badass girls who are just as good as guys, even better. Amani stood up for herself against everyone making decisions for her, she bravely escaped into an unknown world.

Alwyn did a good job writing, the place, the dessert felt real. Not all the characters stood out, but it was fun to read. Some characters broke my heart. Hamilton should invest in the characters more, make us relate to them, give them distinct traits, so we always remember them. She has made the place come alive, but not the characters. I loved Jin and Amani’s scenes, but they lacked passion. You don’t feel the book. At first, it is hard to keep up with the magical creatures, but with stories incorporated, I finally started understanding them.

The layout of the book is quite well. The book moves at the correct pace. I liked Ahmed’s rebels, their introduction, most of them being girls was fantastic.

 Aunt Farrah always said I didn’t seem to mind proving myself dumb if it meant proving someone else wrong. 

 

 

King’s cage- Book

 It was an okay book, the previous books have been better as I remember. I did think this was the last book, so it was kind of a disappointment to realize there is one more year to wait. Maven was fascinating, this book felt long and satisfying. The characters were well built,  I do like maven and mare better together, what’s wrong with me?

Victoria did a good job, giving us enough time with maven and mare, the conversations, the insight, the war, everything was good. The insight into maven’s head, into Evangeline’s, I still can’t hate maven.

Mare is not in love with Maven, and I am sure she is going to be the one to kill him, and it will kill me. I understand cal’s and mare’s love, but Cal does not have that passion for mare,
the parts where Maven tells us how his mother destroyed him, on why he is the way he is, it moved me, that is the reason any of us feel any pity for him, he was not born evil, he was just made empty, this book is magnificent, the characters are fantastic, This book won’t be my favourite but I did enjoy reading it a lot.

I loved this line-

“I’m not a fool, little lightning girl. If you’re going to play in my head, I’m going to play in yours. It’s what we’re good at.”
“Somewhere in the distance, somewhere in my bones, thunder rolls.”

This book had everything, politics, imprisonment, love, hatred, twisted betrayals, terror, everything, so many new characters, I remembered glass sword and shade, my heart went out every time he was mentioned, I loved him, broke my heart for Farley.

“The pain makes you stronger. Love makes you weak.”

Maven, i do agree is great at being a king, evil but his strategies, his wanting of mare, his decisions, everything, the villain here, maven is simply heart breaking, victoria aveyard is a genius. Mare’s character is deep and wise in this book, she thinks through, feels for others, is smarter and less selfish, she knows what she wants and when to stand up for herself. i love her sassiness.
Cal is too soft, too nice probably, i dont think i would be able to forgive him for marrying evangeline, he saved mare but he broke her as well.

The part with mare and cal was sweet, her family, kilorn is awesome! the training everything, it was sweet and refreshing from all the war and punishments.

evangeline and elaine’s love, her love for her brother tolly, i loved the chapters from her viewpoint, she is stuck doing things she does not want to. i hope her parents die and she and her brother get to rule, i hope she stands up for her love.

“Be the best, the strongest, the smartest, the most deadly and the most cunning. The most worthy. And I was everything.”

Evangeline, everything that happens to her also breaks my heart, all the politics that all these characters have to endure, i wish this world was simpler, where beautiful naive hearts could exist. Farley is someone i aspire to be, she is badass, when she stands up in front of her father, whoa! man she has guts and a spine. When mare bonds with julians’ books, turns out i do not like anabel, she is a bitch, she is a grandmother and wants whats best for her grandson but still a silver bitch, sara and everyone is great, her voice comes back yay! I like evangeline’s mother’s ability, she is badass, evil but animals are such a cool power to have, Davidson i had reservations about him but he won my heart during the war.

I did not exactly identify with cameron, but it brought a different take on this book, where everyone was power hungry and all casual in a way about killing, cameron, a kid and powerful, but unwilling to be in a war. I wish i could read the last book a little sooner, waiting for another year, to know how it all goes down, another year without this world, damn.

This is a great series, definitely a must read for people who like YA Fantasy.
