Changeling - Cate Tiernan

Tittle: Changeling
Author: Cate Tiernan
Genre: Fiction, YA, Romance, fantasy, witches, magik, coming of age.
Pages: 188
Publisher: Puffin
Format: Digital (Kindle)
Time to read it: 3 days
Language: English
Rating: 5/5

“Changeling” is the eighth book in the “Wicca/Sweep” series, a series that follows Morgan as she finds out about the existence of magik and her relationship with it. She discovers a new part of her life that threatens with run over everything else.

After what she learned in New York about her family Morgan is even more insecure about herself and her possibilities of being good. However, she will have her chance to show everyone she can definitely be good, by giving her father to the council. This will not be an easy task, in fact it will be dangerous and difficult, but she needs to do it to show everyone she is her mother’s daughter and not her father’s.

“Changeling” was a really nail-biting compelling book. I think it was really interesting how human relations and Morgan’s real family is brought to picture. I also loved the “mystery” events happening around Morgan, that are not really important to anyone, and that I’m pretty sure that have more in common with another person. I really enjoyed meeting the least aggressive, even likeable side from the “bad one” in this series.

To conclude, another great book in a  really amazing series, which I would really recommend to everyone looking for witches and magick.

The Calling - Cate Tiernan

Tittle: The Calling

Genre: Fiction, YA, Romance, fantasy, witches, magik, coming of age.
Pages: 189
Publisher: Puffin
Format: Digital (Kindle)

Rating: 5/5

“The Calling” is the seventh book in the “Wicca/Sweep” series, a series that follows Morgan as she finds out about the existence of magik and her relationship with it. She discovers a new part of her life that threatens with run over everything else.

Morgan has been having really weird bad dreams, that Hunter and the council think that might be related to the Amyranth coven, to which Selene used to be part of. This dark magik coven have been seen around New York, therefore Morgan, Hunter and some of their friends are going to search for answers there.

“The Calling” was a really compelling book. It really captured me and I liked that. The story and past of Morgan starts taking form and she learns some important things during this trip. Apart from that since Cal’s death Hunter and Morgan’s relationships seems to move forward, however she takes some bad decisions that in my opinion are quite questionable. Other than that I liked the development of the book how you can build up suspicions that came together in the end, and how it leaved an instalment close, even if the story keep going.

To sum up, “The Calling” was really good, and as I said before the series so far is a really recommended one about witches and magick.

Spellbound - Cate Tiernan

Tittle: Spellbound
Author: Cate Tiernan
Genre: Fiction, YA, Romance, fantasy, witches, magik, coming of age.
Pages: 192
Publisher: Puffin
Format: Digital (Kindle)
Time to read it: 7 days
Language: English
Rating: 4/5

“Spellbound” is the sixth book in the “Wicca/Sweep” series, a series that follows Morgan as she finds out about the existence of magik and her relationship with it. She discovers a new part of her life that threatens with run over everything else.

Morgan and Hunter are getting closer since Cal disappeared, however his shadow seems cast upon them. She knows that if Cal ever comes back, he and Hunter will confront each other, it is not only something that Hunter wants but part of his job as Seeker. Also since Cal has been gone they decided to unite the two circles. However, Cal might not be as far as they think he is.

“Spellbound” was a really god book, however since it has been a long time since I read the fifth book it was a little tough to get into the story. I really like this series and how little by little Morgan and her friends develop themselves. It is a series about Morgan’s journey into magik and how it changes her life at the same time that she is a teenager that must change and became an adult. I think the plot twist was quite predictable in this book but I did not see the ending coming, which is a good thing.

To sum up, Spellbound was a good book in a recommended series about witches and magick.

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover review

Tittle: Hopeless
Author: Colleen Hoover
Genre: Fiction, YA, Romance, contemporary, coming of age
Pages: 410
Publisher: Atria Books
Format: Digital (Kindle)
Time to read it: 3 days
Language: English
Rating: 5/5

“Hopeless” is the first book in a short series written by Colleen Hoover. This popular author is known for her dramatic contemporary romances, from which I have read and liked a few.

Sky has always been homeschooled, however for her senior year she decided she wants to be a normal girl and join the public high school, however when she planned that her best friend was not going to go across the world for a school program overseas. She also did not plan on encounter a strange boy who seemed to know her but not really. And the least she was planning on was into discover herself altogether.

“Hopeless” was a fantastic book, that developed a really difficult and tough matter in an exquisite way. I have not read a book that has dealt with such important issues in a way that they do in this book, I have seen tv shows and movies, however never a book and I thought it was amazingly brought up and developed. I like how every single detail you are reading at the beginning of the book is wrapped up in the end.
The only bad thing was that midway through the drama I could see it coming, because as I said I have seen this kind of development before in other media. Nonetheless, it did not make the book less terrific.

To sum up, a book you should read if you like reading about though themes because this is not your typical contemporary novel.

October Wrap Up - November TBR

Hello again everyone,

Today starts a new month and that means that it is time to wrap up the previous month and set this month's TBR.

Last month I set an ambitious TBR which I was unable to complete entirely, but I did manage to get a lot read which makes me kind of happy. As I also said on the previous month's post I was going to center this past month's TBR on the "Sweep/ Wicca" series by Cate Tiernan, and that is what I did.
I managed to finish the sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, and get thought half of the eleventh.

I have enjoyed most of this books, however the last two, Seeker and Origins, change the point of view and I have not been able to click with them as I was able to so with the other ones.
As for the November TBR, I want to still finish this series, reading the twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth and sixteenth books in the series, Eclipse, Reckoning, Full Circle and Night Child.

Appart from that, I want to keep finishing series and that's how the rest of my TBR is set. First I want to finish a book I started a long time ago and hopefully like it enough to finish the series next month; Days of blood and Starlight, the second book in the "Daughter of smoke and bone" series by Laini Taylor. Also I would like to continue with the "Lunar chronicles" by Marissa Meyer by reading the second book in the series, Scarlet. 

Then I would like to finish up reading "The Iron Knight" by Julie Kagawa and that way, finishing up with the "Iron Fey series. And last but not least I want to read the second book in the "Hopeless" series by Colleen Hoover, "Loosing hope". 

Thanks for reading,

The truth about forever review - Sarah Dessen

Tittle: The truth about forever
Author: Sarah Dessen
Genre: Fiction, YA, Romance, contemporary, coming of age, summer
Pages: 374
Publisher: Penguin Group
Format: Digital (Kindle)
Time to read it: 5 days
Language: English
Rating: 5/5

“The truth about forever” is one of the most popular books written by Sarah Dessen, an author particularly popular for her YA contemporary romance novels, especially summery ones.

Ever since her father’s death Macy has been trying really hard to be perfect. Her boyfriend, Jason, is mister perfect, council president, volunteer, excellent grades and a job at the local library. However, her perfect boyfriend is about to spent his summer on Brain camp, while her has to take care of his job at the library with the feminine versions of her boyfriend, who hate her. However, a mail from her boyfriend makes her take a crazy decision, she starts working at the catering service which worked on the latest of her mother’s receptions. She does not expect to find the closure she needed in such an imperfect and chaotic environment.

“The truth about forever” was a fantastic summery read. It is one of those books that are really sweet but have a deep undertone, in this case both main characters have lost someone and somehow have to find closure to their losses. However, is not only them but also the people around them, who you can see how everyone is different in these kinds of situations in the way and the time it takes. I really liked the romance in this book for different reasons; for once it is not instant in fact it takes a long time to build, first they became friends and then they start being closer and closer. In addition to that you can see the relationship evolving so naturally the main character is even unaware of it. However, I would have liked to read more about them as a couple.
About the characters I really liked that I think every character represented something and each one was really different from each other.

To conclude, the truth about forever was a really good and a book I totally recommend you read in summer.

Fallen Heir - Erin Watt

Tittle: Fallen Heir
Series: The Royals
Author: Erin Watt
Genre: Fiction, YA, Romance, Contemporary, New Adult
Pages: 300
Publisher: Timeout LLC
Format: Digital (Kindle)
Time to read it: 2 days
Language: English
Rating: 5/5

“Fallen Heir” is the fourth book in “The Royals” series written by Erin Watt. The series follows the Royals family as they had to welcome a new member, Ella, into their family and the twist and turns that it will bring.

Reed has gone to college leaving Easton, Ella and the twins. Easton has now to be the leader, however he does not like the idea, he just prefers to live his own life, however while he is doing something just Easton would do someone sees him. When he asks her not to tell anyone she does not seem interested on him, which wakes something on Easton. He starts following her around and while doing so he gets to know her, which is something he had not done in a very long time, none the less, Hartley does not give into him no matter how hard he tries. In the mean while the Royals start losing their status in the school and Easton might have to do something if he wants to prevent someone worse to be at the top.

“Fallen Heir” was a compelling book, as all the books in this series are. The authors are incredible at making you unable to put the book down, you just want know what is happening next. Apart from that the books are twisted but at the same time you can see they have a plan a guideline, they are not just twist over twist that leads to nothing. I like that the topic of mental health is talk in this book, even if I thought they should have extended the talk and got deeper into it. The characters are different from the ones in the previous three books in every way and that also makes the book interesting.

All in all, “Fallen Heir” was a really good compelling book that did not disappointed me. This series was exactly what I was expecting some guilty pleasure series easy to go through the books quickly and perfect twisty romantic chic-lit.
