Legendary

img_2905I read Caraval last year and I was entertained yet it was not quite as captivating as I hoped. The atmosphere of the book was quite dark and mysterious with an air of danger attached. I definitely couldn’t predict anything that was going to happen which I enjoy in a fantasy book, it keeps me invested in the storyline. I thought the twists were well timed and the characters were somewhat likeable, Donatella wasn’t a favourite of mine. That being said the magic system kind of fell a little flat for me in the book. So I am hoping it is really explained and expanded more in Legendary. I am excited to get into this book and hopefully I like it even more than its predecessor.

⚡️Harry Potter Update⚡️

9781408855928Earlier this month I completed Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! I really enjoyed my reread of this book in particular. I think as the series progresses they books just continue to showcase how complex the plot is and how engaging and charming all of the characters are. The Goblet of Fire is among one of my favourites and I am still loving my experience rereading this series. I love the introduction of the students from the different schools and how they contrast to the students at Hogwarts. It really helps to expand upon the magical community and broaden the scope of the books. The way J.K Rowling introduces all the new characters and incorporates them all so organically into the storyline and makes all the elements come together are just spectacular and I was once again swept away into this magical world!

Skyward

img_2867bhsnThis book has been on my radar since it came out late last year. It seems that all the reviews I’ve seen for this book has been super positive so that has me intrigued. From what I gather its a kind of sci-fi/fantasy story and I haven’t really read any sci-fi for a while now so I am very keen to get started. The premise of the book sounds very promising and as I just finished Oathbringer last month I am yearning for more of Brandon Sanderson’s writing. His world building and magical elements are always so epic and original, I am very eagerly anticipating this read. I really hope it lives up to the hype!

The Mara Dyer Series

img_2865I was actually really surprised how much I enjoyed The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. When I picked it up I just had this feeling like I knew I wasn’t going to be a fan, I kind of had this preconceived notion that it was going to be slow and boring and that wasn’t the case at all. I think it’s also mostly due to the fact that I haven’t really heard a lot of good reviews for this series. I try not to let anything I hear sway my reading plans but sometimes it niggles in the back of my mind and I can’t help it. I am really glad that I did end up enjoying the book and I am really excited to continue on with The Evolution and The Retribution of Mara Dyer. The first book ended on a pretty intense cliff hanger and I can’t wait to get into all of it in the next installment in the series!!

⚡️Harry Potter Update⚡️

img_2772This month I bought the third illustrated edition of the Harry Potter series with The Prisoner of Azkaban and you better believe I picked it straight up and dived right in! This edition is so beautiful and it just enhances the reading experience so much. I haven’t read The Prisoner of Azkaban in a few years now and I was enthralled. The intricacies in the storyline and how everything matches up together in the different timelines is genius! The illustrated edition of The Goblet of Fire should come out later this year which is sooooo exciting, I can’t wait to see all of the dragons and the delegates from the different schools, Madame Maxime! I am definitely not waiting until then to continue with my reread of the series, I will just have to skim through when it comes out.
