Rule

Synopsis:

Three girls with three deadly secrets. Only one can wear the crown.

The king is dying, his heir has just been murdered, and rebellion brews in the east. But the kingdom of Kolonya and the outer Reaches has one last option before it descends into leaderless chaos.

Or rather, three unexpected options.

Zofi has spent her entire life trekking through the outer Reaches with her band of Travelers. She would do anything to protect the band, her family. But no one can ever find out how far she’s already gone.

Akeylah was raised in the Eastern Reach, surrounded by whispers of rebellion and abused by her father. Desperate to escape, she makes a decision that threatens the whole kingdom.

Ren grew up in Kolonya, serving as a lady’s maid and scheming her way out of the servants’ chambers. But one such plot could get her hung for treason if anyone ever discovers what she’s done.

When the king summons the girls, they arrive expecting arrest or even execution. Instead they learn the truth: they are his illegitimate daughters, and one must become his new heir. But someone in Kolonya knows their secrets, and that someone will stop at nothing to keep the sisters from their destiny… to rule.

Magic, mystery, and blackmail abound in this sensational and striking fantasy debut.

This book was so good! I enjoyed every chapter! I couldn’t get into Three Dark Crowns so when it said it was kind of like that with a twist I went into it skeptical but it ended up really well! The cover also intrigued me because it reminded me of Furyborn and I couldn’t stop staring at it.

All three girls come from lower class and have deadly secrets they hold dear. But what they do to keep those secrets keeps the pages turning and keeps you wanting more. The three sisters make do with the family they have from a father who is trying to make amends to an aunt who seems horrible and doesn’t seem to like them. As each challenge arises they fight to keep their secrets hidden and gain the crown I guarantee you won’t see the ending coming.

Out of My Mind

OOMM

I got this book last year from my uncle for Christmas. He met the author and got it signed just for me. After reading this book I am upset it took me this long to get around to read it. I absolutely loved it. It grabs you from the first page until the last.

The synopsis:

Melody is not like most people. She cannot walk or talk, but she has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She is smarter than most of the adults who try to diagnose her and smarter than her classmates in her integrated classroom – the very same classmates who dismiss her as mentally challenged because she cannot tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by cerebral palsy. And she’s determined to let everyone know it – somehow.

This book was absolutely amazing and makes me want Melody’s mind! She is incredibly smart and fights through trials she is given. I think this is an amazing read and it is definitely something that should be handed to a kid to read! I give it a solid five out of five stars!

You’re Welcome, Universe

YWU

This book is about a deaf female who does graffiti and its the book I didn’t know I needed. It definitely fits the YA genre. The book starts out with Julia getting kicked out of school for doing something she believed in and goes from there. This young girl goes from a school for the deaf to a public school and faces new trials. She escapes trouble pretty easily and the best part of this whole book is that she has two mothers and they are both deaf.

This book is a modern day teenage book and I absolutely love it.

Just read the Synopsis!

Friends are a liability.
Julia learns this the hard way when she covers up a slur about her best friend with a beautiful (albeit illegal) mural, sprayed right across the gymnasium of the Kingston School for the Deaf.

Her (supposed) best friend snitches, the principal expels her, and her mom’s set Julia up with a one-way ticket to a “mainstream” school in the suburbs, where she’s treated like an outcast as the only deaf student.

Out in the ‘burbs, Julia paints anywhere she can, eager to claim some turf of her own. A tag on a sign, a piece on an overpass. But soon Julia leans that she’s not the only vandal in town. Someone is adding to her tags, making them better, showing off – and showing Julia up in the process. She expected her art might get painted over by cops. But she never imagined getting dragged into a graffiti war.

Now Julia must risk arrest and expulsion to go toe to toe with her rival…or face losing the only piece of her identity that still makes sense.

I give it Five out of Five stars!

Dreaded Reading Slump

I fell into the dreaded reading slump. I find myself reading book after book and grabbing the next one with no issue but dang if the reading slump doesn’t creep up on me. I read When Dimple Met Rishi (totally recommend 12/10) and it screwed me up. No book is cute enough or has that This is Us (TV show) feel to it. Then my mother got me hooked on this new TV show on Lifetime called You which is about an obsessive bookseller and an aspiring writer. Now finding that one book is even harder. I hunt the tbr pile on my bookshelves hoping and wishing for one to call out.

This slump just took a turn and I can’t get out of it. D:

I need recommendations! I need that down to earth home-y feeling in a book or a book that has an obsessive bookseller/writer to help quench my need for these TV shows. I am on the hunt and need your help! I need that perfect book to help climb me back out of this hole I have unfortunately found myself in.

So, please comment below or find me on twitter and recommend away!

China Rich Girlfriend

Oh, my word this book! I absolutely loved it! There were some moments when I was even going ‘OH SHE TOLD YOU!’ and going all out. This series so far has been one hell of a series. I have gotten into the drama of it all as it unfolds.

The characters have taken on a different light as the story unfolds. Kitty changes and gets her own parts to the book which we didn’t see before. Astrid, Nick, and Rachel are still there but we get to know Rachel’s family and see some backside to it all. Heck, we even get Charlie’s backside as well! This book was drawn together with so much drama and moments where you feel like you are watching a soap opera and can’t put it down or else you will miss the next piece of vital information!

Poor Rachel though. She gets the brunt end of the stick with some of the things that go on and she doesn’t even want what happens. I feel so bad for her. Of course, we can’t miss the best friend of Rachel! Oh, how I love this character! We didn’t see much of her in this story which is upsetting! She is one of my favorite side characters! I hope as I read book three she makes more of an appearance!

Five out of five stars!
