There is need. And then there is Fate. Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's other half is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her. When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon--and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude--or killing her. When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.
How gorgeous are these covers? A couple of weeks ago, I asked people what their favorite book covers were on my bookstagram. I didn’t answer because at the time, I didn’t have one. Well, I do now. The covers on the Covenant series are by far my favorites.
This entire book, I just wanted to pick up Seth and drop him somewhere far, far away from Alex and Aiden. I said in my review of Half-Blood that I’ve been an Alex+Aiden shipper since the start. If you didn’t guess, this was the reason why I wanted Seth to leave. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I do love Seth but I don’t ship him with Alex. At all.
I loved the action in Pure. When *certain things* happen in the Covenant, we get to see how much of a badass Alex truly is. I won’t say exactly what happened because I don’t want to spoil it, but I will say that every book, Alex gets stronger and stronger.
I think Jennifer L. Armentrout likes killing off loveable characters. It happened in The Problem with Forever, The Lux series, and in this series. Agh it’s so frustrating.
Overall, this book has an intriguing plot and amazing characters and I highly recommend it.
As you can probably tell from the title and the picture, this post is about my Top 5 Summer Reads! These are some books that I've read and loved that I think will be perfect to read during the summer! So, without further ado, here are my Top 5 Summer Reads:
1. Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum:
There is something about contemporaries that just fits perfectly with summer. So, I decided to put this on my list because it is a super quick and fun read (and of course, it was some swoonworthy characters!)
2. A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas
3. The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout:
I can't not put this series on here. I read this last summer and I fell in love with it. It has been my favorite series ever since. If you are looking for a series that you want to love, then I highly recommend this series!
4. The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout:
Again, this is another contemporary that is perfect for summer!
5. Lose Me. by M.C. Frank:
Once again, another perfect contemporary for summer!
Hi everyone! It's been a while since I have had the time to post on my blog. School is slowly coming to an end (one more month!) and I finally have time to post. So, now onto what you've all been waiting for: what I am reading!
I am doing a re-read A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I wasn't ready to leave behind Feyre and Rhysand after finishing A Court of Wings and Ruin so, I decided to re-read the series. I am so glad I did because I am loving it even more than I did the first time.
I am also reading Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. This is the book I've been reading at school and I am really enjoying it!
Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…
She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.
The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.
