Top 5 Wednesday - Favourite Urban Fantasy Books

Hello, fellas! I've been feeling very uninspired to blog recently BUT I have a lot of ideas about some posts so I decided to try and conquer this laziness and lack of motivation of mine. I'm even trying to read more again and get back to my old routine.

This week's topic is my favourite of the month, I didn't like the previous ones because I had to think about everything very hard in order to come up with something.

So, without any further due, let's get started!

The books aren't going to be in a particular order!

7 Reasons I Love High/Epic Fantasy Novels

  I was thinking (surprising even myself) that I want to grow my blog but... how do I do that if I don't post? So here I am on Sunday (when I was supposed to post, oops) writing this post for Monday (what's a schedule???) and trying (and failing) to be funny entertaining.

REVIEW: Cursed by Lucy Leroux

Isobel Sterling is a governess with many secrets—including an uncanny ability she's been hiding her whole life, until the day arrives when she has to use it to save herself from a madman. But first she has to master it. Fast.

Governess Isobel Sterling feels fortunate to have found a safe haven in the Montgomery household. The children are kind and the lord and lady of the house leave her alone. Just when her life seems as good as it can get, mysterious visitors arrive from abroad.

At first Isobel is flattered by the single-minded attention she receives from their handsome young guest, Matteo Garibaldi. But when girls in the village go missing, Isobel has a terrible suspicion the disappearances are linked to the darkness she can see growing behind Matteo's eyes. Filled with dread, she tries to avoid his company—until she is locked in with him for the night.
Why didn't I read this book (that I received a copy of for an honest review) sooner! Whyyyyy! IT. IS. AMAZING!

Bookish Confessions

Hiya, fellas! Today I'm confessing all of my bookish sins!

1. When I don't have a bookmark nearby (which is a rarity but still) I get very tempted to dog-ear the page of a book BUT(!) I don't.

REVIEW: Carry On by Rainbow Rowel

Amazon | Book Depository

Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been chosen.

That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right.

Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here — it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.

A little DISCLAIMER here:

I did NOT like the book and my review is negative BUT this is only MY opinion and I'm not trying to convince anybody into agreeing with it.
Actual rating 2,5 stars

I like Fangirl . I like gay stories. I support LGBTQQ+ and all.

BUT this book was just less than I expected. Less then it should have been. Everything was less.

REVIEW: Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

A quick death…
Or slow poison...

About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.

And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly's Dust—and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison.

As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can't control. Her life is threatened again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren't so clear...

When I started reading Poison Study, I didn't have high expectations but halfway through the book, I decided that I wanted the rest of the series. I also read it in a day and now I just don't want to read anything else until I get my hands on the second one.
