Heir of Illaria by Dyan Chick | Too fast-paced “Princess Diaries” with fantasy elements

Do you love Fantasy? Because I do, but recently I feel like giving up on YA fantasy novels because they don’t usually bring anything new to the table and just continue redecorating stories that we’ve heard before.

I would love to say that «Heir of Illaria» was different, but unfortunately that was not the case. It was one of those stories where you don’t miss any flaws but you keep enjoying it nonetheless.

Nyxia by Scott Reintgen | Simply one of the best Sci-fis I’ve ever read!

That is correct! I read what turned out to be one of the best Sci-fi books I’ve ever had a chance to get my hands on! Even though I read this back in June of this year (Thank you NetGalley and Crown Books for the ARC!), I still cannot stop thinking about it. Continue reading “Nyxia by Scott Reintgen | Simply one of the best Sci-fis I’ve ever read!”

Warcross by Marie Lu | Clichés, romance and advanced technology

This must have been the book I was the most excited about this year. It’s all about gaming, hackers and virtual reality! The synopsis sounded very interesting, especially for someone like me, who loves video games.

Unfortunately, this was one of those stories where the romance ruined the whole experience and made me sigh and cringe multiple times throughout. Continue reading “Warcross by Marie Lu | Clichés, romance and advanced technology”

Epic Fantasy series I am interested in!

It’s been what feels like a very long time since I properly dove into the great fantasy worlds, full of magic, castles, knights and epic wars. And there is a great variety of new and old fantasy series and standalones to choose from!

These are just a few of the books I’ve got my eye on for quite a long time. I would love to hear your thoughts on any of them in the comments down below! Continue reading “Epic Fantasy series I am interested in!”

Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith by Shaun Hume | Incredible writing, unfortunately, was not enough

There is probably not a single person out there who read and didn’t like «Harry Potter». J.K. Rowling created one of the most innovative fantasy stories of her time. When it was first released, I was only 6 years old and it was much later, when the story was finally translated to Russian and I was of age to read it that I picked it up.

Everyone talked about it, everyone watched the movies and waited years for the conclusion of this epic adventure. Continue reading “Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith by Shaun Hume | Incredible writing, unfortunately, was not enough”

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell | A parody on fantasy?

It finally happened! After having it on my TBR for almost 7 months, in April I have read «Carry On». I love Rainbow Rowell and always will, but I was a little apprehensive to read her fantasy novel, and it’s for a good reason.

If you didn’t know, «Carry On» was a popular fantasy series first mentioned in «Fangirl» where Cate, the main character, was writing fanfiction for. Continue reading “Carry On by Rainbow Rowell | A parody on fantasy?”

July TBR 2017 | The month of massive fantasy series! + Reading Poll!

Just like the previous month, I will not be making a TBR list because (A) I am not sure what exactly I want to read and (B) it seemed to work better for me when I didn’t have to follow the list, but instead set up some small goals that I will strive to achieve during the month.
