Frozen Tides Review

17342701Once again I loved the direction the plot went in. We are introduced to some new characters and say goodbye to a few I thought were going to integral to the plot.

Magnus is really cementing his position as one of my favourite characters in this series. I started off really not liking him and how he was trying to hard to emulate his father, but in this installment in particular we really see a shift in his character with a lot of development and growth. At times he is still going back and forth on whether or not to trust Cleo but when he makes his ultimate decision to trust his instincts and go with what his heart desires I was soooo happy!

Cleo I think is really starting to come into her own. I just think she is still too trusting of people. She let Nic and Kurtus get into her head about not trusting Magnus when she knew all along that her best chance to overcome Gais was to side with him. She really took charge and wouldn’t back down to anyone when they stood in her way!

Lucia is getting on my nerves. I think she is entitled and selfish and deluded into thinking she is in charge of the situation. Her attitude throughout the plot and her disregard for innocent lives definitely strengthened my previous feeling about her. Yes her arc is interesting and we are getting answers to a lot of questions but at the same time I don’t really care about her at all…

Jonas is still such an endearing character to me. He has managed to escape so many life-threatening situations and honestly shouldn’t be alive. I definitely felt bad for him in this book, especially after everything that happened with Lys. I honestly thought they would end up together in the end and now that Cleo is out of the equation as well I wonder what is going to happen with him next.

There were soo many power moves and schemes happening in this book that at times it was a little hard to keep up with it all. I am very much invested in all of the characters and I am eagerly anticipating what is going to happen in the final two books!

⭐️5/5 MAGNEO!!!!

Backlist Readathon Wrap Up

Last week I managed to read 4 books and wrap up a series I have been wanting to catch up on in a very long time! I was able to incorporate all of the prompts and surpassed the goal I set for myself so I am super stoked with how this readathon went! I decided to scrap The Black Prism that was on my TBR for the time being, simply because I find I’m in the middle of too many series at the moment and I didn’t want to start a new epic fantasy series of 6 books until I wrapped up a few I am already in the middle of. 

The books I read for the Backlist Readathon are:

Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan

43558747

Frozen TidesCrystal Storm & Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes

173427012336726123367265

I really enjoyed this readathon! I liked being able to look at my shelves and prioritise the books I have been wanting to read for a while now. Like I said I wrapped up a fantasy series I have been in the middle of for over a year now and read a late 2019 release I have been putting off as well, I know if I didn’t read it this week I probably wouldn’t for months and months.

⭐️5 Star Predictions⭐️

I don’t really like to go into books with too much expectations as I feel most time they don’t live up to them. However this weeks Top 10 Tuesday prompt is kind of pushing me to have a good look at the books in my TBR and see what I am hyping up in my brain.

So these are 10 books currently in my physical TBR I am hoping will be 5 stars:
