Throne of Glass — Review

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoy books that have kickass female characters. Women are not always supposed to be damsels in distress, they too can be knights in shining armour. 

Celaena has become a role model for me — she feels scared but she knows how to come out of it and win in life. She is witty and fast, she is everything I want to be. 

I wish Dorian could be more headstrong. If he’s against his father, he should have the guts to stand up for his own opinions. 

Though Chaol is just a guard, he still carries a slight air of a Lord. Nehemia looks timid but she’s no less powerful.

That’s what I loved about this book, the female characters are no less, at times even better, than the males. 

I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

After You — Book Review

After You (Me Before You, #2)After You by Jojo Moyes

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I missed Will in the entire book. 

The storytelling was commendable. I liked how Lou-Lily relationship bloomed; though I got the shock of my life when Lily appeared and claimed to be Will’s daughter.

Its true what a little carelessness in parenting can cause to a young mind. That’s been projected, I’m glad, parents should keep that in mind.

It was kind of hard to digest seeing Lou moving on with Sam, but one also cannot deny the fact that Will had chosen his freedom over Lou’s love. So she has the right to move on.

Mr. Trainer just pissed me off. I felt really awful for Mrs. Traynor on her first appearance in this book. 

Death affects the loved ones more than the deceased. Everyone, except Georgia, was seen to be living with a void in their lives.

There was another character who just pissed me off — Tanya Houghton-Miller, a self obsessed, bitch who calls herself a mother.

It was a good read but Will…. You were missed…

Heartless — Book Review

HeartlessHeartless by Marissa Meyer

4 of 5 stars

Fairy tales have taught us, people are either good or bad. But no, there’s nothing like Black or White, we’re like the Yin-Yang. Circumstances drive some people to become unemotional, Heartless, cruelty of the world makes people cruel. And that’s what happened to our Queen of Hearts.

No one brings out the flip side of fairy tales better than Merissa Meyer. Reminded me of the movie Maleficent.

I adored the love story of Cath and Jest, no wonder she chose the court joker over the daft King of Hearts. But, unlike what fairy tales taught us, it wasn’t a happily ever after.

The havoc that Jest’s loss caused to Cath. I could literally feel the pain, the angst of all the injustices that led to the tragedy, the hunger for revenge. Not all tragedy needs to followed by pools of tears, often it leads to a volcano of anger towards the injustice by fate.

The book’s unconventional, storytelling is remarkable and I’m glad I chose this book as my first read of the year.
