I personally have a very difficult time choosing whether I love one genre over the other since they both have their own individual charm. How about we check out what the authors have to say about Urban Fantasy?

Team Urban: Why I Love Urban Fantasy!

1 . Shonna Slayton – Spindle:

“Urban fantasy reminds me that our own world is magical. We are so used to the way our world works that we take for granted how incredible it is that our heart beats, our brain imagines, that our eyes see color.

As a writer, urban fantasy allows me to open up my imagination on multiple planes. I still work with the real world, but I get to add layers onto that. It’s like going from black and white TV to color. Like Dorothy in dusty old Kansas stepping into the colorful land of Oz.”

Spindle.jpg

Book Description:

In a world where fairies lurk and curses linger, love can bleed like the prick of a finger…

Briar Rose knows her life will never be a fairy tale. She’s raising her siblings on her own, her wages at the spinning mill have been cut, and the boy she thought she had a future with has eyes for someone else. Most days it feels like her best friend, Henry Prince, is the only one in her corner…though with his endless flirty jokes, how can she ever take him seriously?

When a mysterious peddler offers her a “magic” spindle that could make her more money, sneaking it into the mill seems worth the risk. But then one by one, her fellow spinner girls come down with the mysterious sleeping sickness…and Briar’s not immune.

If Briar wants to save the girls—and herself—she’ll have to start believing in fairy tales…and in the power of a prince’s kiss.

2. Danielle Ellison – Salt (Salt, #1):

“Whether it’s witches, demons, ghosts or other types monsters, there’s nothing like escaping the sometimes mundane reality of our world, or giving what we know every day a spice of fantasy.  Filled with kick-ass heroines who aren’t afraid to fight for what they believe in (and hot, just-as-fierce love interests) Urban Fantasy inspires you look beyond what you see and be more than you think you can be. Plus, life is more with some magic: more dangerous, more unpredictable, more chaotic, more fun.”

9781622663484.jpg

Book Description:

Penelope is a witch, part of a secret society protecting humans from demon attacks. But when she was a child, a demon killed her parents—and stole her magic. Since then, she’s been pretending to be something she’s not, using her sister’s magic to hide her own loss, to prevent being sent away.

When she’s finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force, Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister’s help, she can squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she needs to find “her” demon. To take back what was stolen.

Then she meets Carter. He’s cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He knows her secret—but he also has one of his own.

Suddenly, Penelope’s impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because Carter’s not telling her everything, and it’s starting to seem like the demons have their own agenda…and they’re far too interested in her.

3. Rachel Harris – My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century (My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, #1):

9781620611364

Book Description:

On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother and well-meaning father. So even though Cat knows the family’s trip to Florence, Italy, is a peace offering, she embraces the magical city and all it offers. But when her curiosity leads her to an unusual gypsy tent, she exits…right into Renaissance Firenze.

Thrust into the sixteenth century armed with only a backpack full of contraband future items, Cat joins up with her ancestors, the sweet Alessandra and protective Cipriano, and soon falls for the gorgeous aspiring artist Lorenzo. But when the much-older Niccolo starts sniffing around, Cat realizes that an unwanted birthday party is nothing compared to an unwanted suitor full of creeptastic amore. Can she find her way back to modern times before her Italian adventure turns into an Italian forever?

Buy My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century

4. Gloria Craw – Atlantis Rising (Atlantis Rising, #1):

“I love Urban Fantasy because it infuses normal life with myth and magic. It’s so exciting to have something in common with a character who finds a magic object, special ability or a secret origin. The possible ways her courage and passion might be tested are endless. When she does triumph against fantastic odds, I’m left feeling inspired and reassured that I can overcome great obstacles in my everyday life too. Urban Fantasy reminds me that the ordinary in us can sometimes be…extraordinary.”

AR_500.jpg

Book Description:

We’ve stayed hidden too long… I am different. I have always been different, but no one can know or my life will be in danger. So I hide in plain sight, wearing drab clothes and thick glasses and trying to be invisible. I’m so good at hiding, no one has ever noticed me. Until Ian…the mysterious and oh-so-cute boy I know I need to avoid.

Now I have been seen. And more terrifying still, I am wanted—by those who would protect me and those who would destroy everything and everyone I love. But if they’re all terrified about who I am, wait until they see what I can do…

Buy Atlantis Rising

5. Brenda Drake – Guardian of Secrets (Library Jumpers, #2):

“I’m such a fan of Urban Fantasy for many reasons, but mostly because writers can take our normal world and, either secret or not, add a dash of the fantastical to it. With mystical creatures hiding from humans or living side by side with them, deliciously nefarious things can happen. There’s just something extraordinary about urban fantasy. It’s the ability of the writer to look at something normal in the human world and mix it up. Changing a simple book into something that can transport someone from library to library or hiding a zoo of magical beasts in a common suitcase.”

Guardian of Secrets_updated1600.jpg

Book Description:

Being a Sentinel isn’t all fairytales and secret gardens. Sure, jumping through books into the world’s most beautiful libraries to protect humans from mystical creatures is awesome. No one knows that better than Gia Kearns, but she could do without the part where people are always trying to kill her. Oh, and the fact that Pop and her had to move away from her friends and life as she knew it.

And if that isn’t enough, her boyfriend, Arik, is acting strangely. Like, maybe she should be calling him “ex,” since he’s so into another girl. But she doesn’t have time to be mad or even jealous, because someone has to save the world from the upcoming apocalypse, and it looks like that’s going to be Gia.

Buy Guardian of Secrets

6. Chris Cannon – Fanning the Flames (Going Down in Flames, #4):

  1.      There are no maidens that need to be rescued in urban fantasy. More than likely the females are the ones kicking ass.
  2.      I love the snarky banter that occurs when you throw modern day characters into            strange/magical/supernatural circumstances.
  3.      Anything is possible in urban fantasy. There are no rules about what types of                  paranormal creatures you can have. If you want to create dragons that breathe fire, ice, wind, sonic waves, and lightning, you can, just like I did in Going Down In Flames *cough cough* shameless self promotion

9781633758773.jpg

Book Description:

She isn’t afraid of anything…except losing the knight she loves. Bryn McKenna has it all, including her smoking-hot knight turned live-in boyfriend, Valmont. Even though she’s a hybrid dragon, she’s finally fitting into the new shape-shifting dragon world that’s become her own. But her grandparents want to ruin everything by making Bryn’s nightmare of an arranged marriage to Jaxon Westgate a reality. It doesn’t help that Jaxon’s father is on a witch hunt for Rebel sympathizers and Bryn finds herself in his line of fire.

If she doesn’t say, “I do,” she’ll lose everything. Good-bye flying. Good-bye best friends. Good-bye magic. But if she bends to her grandparents’ will and agrees to marry Jaxon, she’ll lose the love of her life—her knight.

7. Tara Fuller – Inbetween (Kissed by Death, #1):

9781620610138_FC.jpg

Book Description:

Death doesn’t fall in love. Usually. Since the car crash that took her father’s life three years ago, Emma’s life has been a freaky—and unending—lesson in caution. Surviving “accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option.

It’s not easy being dead, especially for a reaper in love with a girl fate has put on his list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil he accidentally unleashed, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left…his soul.

Heartless Book Review (Spoiler Free)

heartless

“Sometimes the heart is the only thing worth listening to.”

Author: Marissa Meyer

Publisher: November 8th 2016 by Feiwel & Friends

Pages: 453

GoodReads

Rating: 5/5

OMG WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN? My emotions are a wreck right now and my heart is literally in pieces!! Marissa Meyer is just a goddess in writing fairy tale re-tellings and this prequel to Wonderland and the Queen of Hearts was beyond beautiful to read. She captures the right balance of the original fairy tale and her own creative plot line. Everything about this book was so beautifully crafted: the characters, the whimsical setting, the plot, the romance. I honestly believed after the Lunar Chronicles, it would be pretty hard to live up to the expectations in placing another fairy tale retelling into the YA market, but Marissa Meyer had done it with Heartless! ❤

Summary:

Catherine Pinkerton or Cath is a talented baker in the Kingdom of Hearts and she wants nothing more than to open her own bakery with her best friend, Mary Ann. Her mother, however, has other plans for her future and she aims for her to marry the King of Hearts to eventually lead the Kingdom. When Cath soon meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker, she instantly captivated by his charm and together the two of them enter into a secret courtship. Cath is determined to make her own decisions and live her own life; however, fate has other plans . . .

Characters:

  1. Cath -Daughter of a Marquess; I honestly loved Catherine Pinkerton. She is just so full of passion for her baking (I love baking as well – one of my personal hobbies hehe) and is generally a good-natured, average girl. What makes this book such a great read is how we her transformation to the Queen of Hearts slowly start to materialize through the course of the novel.
  2. Jest – oh Jest . . . he is just swoon worthy! Let me just add you to my list of ever growing book boyfriends ❤ What can you say about Jest? He is just too beautiful and perfect for this world and you can not help but fall for him the moment he is introduced. Everything about him is just so captivating from his impossible, crazy “magic” to his never ending charm. He is one of the most unique male leads I have read in YA fiction! ❤fangirl.gif
  3. King – oh lord this babbling man . . . While it is true he such a foolish and dimwitted character who honestly does not have the skill and strength to lead a kingdom, you cannot help but feel sorry for him at times since he is quite oblivious to the world around him.
  4. Mary Ann – Catherine’s maid; I admired the relationship between Catherine and Mary Ann since both of them share a deep friendship despite the difference in social class. Although they do have different approaches on how they view certain issues, I did love the fact that they supported one another for Cath’s dream: to open a bakery.

Marissa Meyer also includes various other familiar characters/ references from Wonderland including The White Rabbit, The Cheshire Cat, The Hatter, unbirthday cakes, tea parties, the Looking Glass, and a murderous Jabberwock. Everything is beautifully tied together to re-create the whimsical and reimagined setting of Wonderland.

My thoughts: 

I loved this book! Marissa Meyer has such an addicting quality to her writing that you cannot help but fly though the pages of her books. What I also love about this novel was that you do not have to be an Alice in Wonderland fan in order to read this book. It has the ability to stand on its own despite drawing references and characters from the original story.

I also appreciated how you can start to see the small qualities of the Queen of Hearts within Catherine from the beginning of the book. Although, her rage and true evil character is not present, you can see a glimpse of certain characteristics and I like how Marissa slowly weaved them into her character: it was almost as if they were dormant and have yet to arise. And Jest OMG! There are moments where his words had me swooning! Like how can you do this to my heart???

“I cannot tell you how I look forward to a lifetime at your side, and all the impossible things I’ll have you believing in.”  ❤

emma

Heartless is also a unique novel to read since as a reader, you do know the outcome and that certain doom is just around the corner but this is what makes it to be such a thrilling read, especially during the last few chapters. It was almost as though you knew that if any form of hope does arise, it will soon dissipate within moments and that is what makes this book so heartbreaking.

If any of you have not read Heartless, I highly recommend that you do! And if you have read it, please let me know what you thought of it!

Until next time, keep reading and I will see you soon with another post!

The Doon Series Review (Spoiler Free)

doon

“I was his nightmare and my destiny his ultimate destruction.”

Author: Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Publication: First Book on August 20th 2013 by Zondervan

Pages: About 360 per book

GoodReads

Rating: 4.5/5

Doon was definitely a light read compared to the other novels I have read this past month but sometimes its nice to take a break from a heavy dense book and move to something more lighter. Doon was the exact break I needed.

Doon follows two best friends, Veronica and MacKenna who travel to Scotland for a vacation and end up discovering another Kingdom/World which can only be accessed through a special bridge using two rings from MacKenna’s great aunt. Veronica also experiences the Calling where she sees a mysterious Scottish man who actually ends up being the Prince of the enchanted land they discover. The girls, along with the two princes of the land discover a dark secret of Doon and together they work together in order to break the evil enchantment.

Characters

  1. Veronica – Calm, Patient, Loves to Read – Veronica, also known by MacKenna as Vee, yearns to escape from her domestic life and the only one way she does that is through reading books and this is what makes her a believer and also quite a dreamer as well. Her motives are solely romance oriented in the first book but it is understandable why due to her past; however, once we move past the first book she grows to become a leader and voice for the people of Doon. Her character growth was truly remarkable.
  2. MacKenna – Bold, Daring, Rash – MacKenna is quite the opposite of Veronica but she still admires Vee and values her friendship which is one of the reasons I absolutely love this book. We do not have a lot of YA novels which focus on female friendship but this series executed this theme beautifully. I really admired how the two girls were able to support one another despite the overwhelming obstacles thrown at them.
  3. Jamie -Determined, A bit Cold, Leader – When we first meet Jamie, he is not how he first appears as in Veronica’s Calling and that made him more intriguing. Over the course of the novel we do see different sides to him and the struggles he is facing and I personally loved seeing his character develop throughout the series (although my heart nearly died a bit at the last book – those who have read it, know what I am talking about lol)
  4. Duncan – Lively, Kind, Captain of the Guard – Duncan is an interesting character since he is not in line for the throne since he is not first born, however, he has such a strong support and commitment to his brother which is quite admirable.

I have to admit the last book was my favorite since it really did heighten the stakes and we see characters pushed to their limits. Overall, I really enjoyed this series and I highly recommend it if you love Scotland, magical realms, magic/sorcery, friendship, romance and adventure.

 

 

 

Beauty and the Beast Book Tag!

the-beauty-and-the-beast-book-tag

Thanks to the wonderful, the lovely, the incredible icebreaker694! Please check out her blog, It’s amazing! And to the creator, Kristy and the Cat Read!!

1. “TALE AS OLD AS TIME” – A POPULAR THEME, TROPE OR SETTING YOU WILL NEVER GET BORED OF READING.

I think for me it will probably be the “misunderstood bad boy”. Now this isn’t a person who mistreats the female lead, but maybe acts cold, mysterious or kind of shut off from the world due to their back story or bad past. An extreme example would be Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows and Warner from Shatter Me  and a lesser extreme may be Captain Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles and Four from Divergent. I do  understand that sometimes this is over done, but when authors can incorporate a “bad boy” character with a lot of character depth and development while simultaneously making them relateable, then we as readers are able to feel for them. And as we see them reform with the female lead’s interactions and relationship, it makes them quite intriguing.

2. BELLE – A BOOK YOU BOUGHT FOR IT’S BEAUTIFUL COVER THAT’S JUST AS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE TOO

cinder

Now isn’t this cover just gorgeous? The best part of it all, is that the actual story is beyond beautiful. I have heard so many people talk about the Lunar Chronicles and I was hesitant to pick it up since it was a 4 part series. However, I did decide to give this a chance since the sci-fi twist to fairy tale re-tellings sounded quite intriguing to me and I am happy to say that this series has become one of my favorite series of all time!

3. BEAST – A BOOK YOU DIDN’T EXPECT MUCH FROM BUT PLEASANTLY SURPRISED YOU.

dark

When I first picked up this book, I honestly was not expecting much since this was classified under a post-apocalyptic genre and I  believed it would follow a similar route that other dystopian books do. However, I was surprised at the interesting twist the author added to this story. It does not follow the same plot line of most dystopian books such as a plague destroying the earth or corrupt individuals overtaking the government. Instead a natural disaster serves as an “awakening” to the evil within individuals. It goes to question humanity itself – Are we either good or bad? Or despite how good a person may seem, will there always be a bit of evil inside them?

4. GASTON – A BOOK EVERYONE LOVES THAT YOU DON’T

red queen

Now, it is not that I didn’t like this book. I actually enjoyed the setting and the set up but I found it to be too predictable in the end. Since I was able to guess the plot twist, it ended up falling flat for me. However, I am planning to continue on with the series to see the direction the plot moves in 🙂

5. LEFOU – A LOYAL SIDEKICK YOU CAN’T HELP BUT LOVE MORE THAN THEIR COUNTER PART.

shatter.jpg

KENJI FOREVER ❤

I absolutely adored Kenji in the Shatter Me series! He is definitely one of the characters who you can’t help but admire. At first he did seem a bit goofy and silly but he really did help the main character, Juliette, through her difficult times and the advice he gave her when she was falling apart really made me admire him even more. A loyal character indeed.

6. MRS POTTS, CHIP, LUMIER & COGSWORTH – A BOOK THAT HELPED YOU THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME OR THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING VALUABLE

I actually have two series for this one. I read both of them during two different but very difficult moments in my life but while reading these books, they offered some valuable messages which I still carry with me to this day.

dashner-maze-runner-series

The Maze Runner: There is nothing more valuable than friendship. When I went through the most difficult part of life, my friends were there for me to recover mentally and emotionally. As an introvert, I am not quite comfortable expressing myself but I found that when you do, you can really grow from the care and comfort of others.

lunar-chronicles-by-marissa-meyer

The Lunar Chronicles: Always have hope. Let’s face it. Life sucks. You are going to be thrown in situations you don’t want to be in and faced with prejudice and judgement from members of society. Time is never going to stop for you so the only thing you can so is just pick yourself up and keep going.  And sometimes, its not a terrible thing to hit rock bottom since there is only way left to go and that’s UP!

7. “SOMETHING THERE” – A BOOK OR A SERIES THAT YOU WEREN’T INTO AT FIRST BUT PICKED UP TOWARDS THE END.

raven

The Raven Cycle was one of the series that I had on my TBR for very long time. I guess the reason I didn’t pick up the first book was because when I read the summary, it sounded as if it would be solely romance oriented. However, I found out that this was not the case and that there was a lot more complexity added to the plot with the diverse characters. This series was unlike anything I have ever read and I am so glad I decided to give it a shot!

8. “BE OUR GUEST” – A FICTIONAL CHARACTER YOU’D LOVE TO HAVE OVER FOR DINNER

hermione.gif

When I first read the Harry Potter books, the character that I automatically connected with was Hermione Granger. Growing up in an Asian household, I took my studies very seriously when I was young and seeing a studious character like her made me realize that knowledge is power and with it, you can conquer the world 🙂

Winter Book Review (Spoiler Free)

winter

“Scars, scars, she was coming to have so many. She wondered if it was wrong to  be proud of them.”

Author: Marissa Meyer

Publication: November 10th 2015 by Feiwel and Friends

Pages: 824

Goodreads

Rating – 5/5

Wow! What a crazy roller coaster ride that was. This is how you end a series. Everything from the build up to the revolution, the actual war, the romance and character struggles were just so well done! This has got to be one of my most favorite series of all time! I will admit that there was a lot going on in the story but I still enjoyed reading this regardless. I couldn’t have asked for a better conclusion to the series. Parts in the book had me going like:

vanessa.gif

As with the other novels within this story, Winter picks up from where we leave the characters in Cress; however, this novel focuses on a new character, Princess Winter and we finally get to see the Lunar Kingdom. This is where Marissa Meyer sheds a bit more light on the conditions on the moon all while the Lunars are being oppressed by Queen Levana’s rule. The set up delineates the society to be a bit dystopian where the Royal Palace has the most wealth while the other sectors live in poverty. Together, Cinder and her friends start to build up the resistance against Queen Levana to defeat her once and for all.

Characters

  1. Princess Winter – Winter is the step daughter of Queen Levana and despite being related to the most WICKED woman throughout the kingdom, she is still loved by her people for her beauty, gentleness and kindness. Because of this, she undergoes constant abuse and manipulation by her stepmother who is without a doubt jealous of her ability to charm the people.
  2. Jacin Clay – Silent, Cold, Protective – Being a childhood friend of Winter, Jacin already cares for this “crazy” Princess even though he tries hard to mask it since he is part of the Queen’s royal Guard. Nevertheless, he tries his best to protect her would do anything for her. *Swoon*

Despite being 800 pages long, I ended up flying though this book especially when I reached the mid-way point. It never slowed down and we are constantly pushed to the edge of our seats, curious as to what is going to happen to the characters. I used to think that the characters were placed in crazy situations in Cress but they are pushed even further in this book and their loyalties are tested. It’s also amazing to analyze the character development within the novel. Everyone is NOT the same as they started out in the beginning of the series.

  1. Cinder and Kai – These two grow off of one another so much throughout the books and I’ve always rooted for them since the series started. Cinder loves Kai’s ability to speak and lead people while Kai is overly charmed by her skill in mechanics. They are too sweet. I loved that Kai at this point in the series is literally DONE with all the Lunar manipulation and he gives no Fs. His sassy comments were awesome! Go Kai!
  2. Scarlet and Wolf – These two have honestly been through the most compared to the rest of the group but they still manage to have a beautiful relationship with one another. They feel for one another when dealing with turmoil and they still manage to pick themselves back up and I love how Wolf calls Scarlet his “alpha.”
  3. Cress and Thorne – OMG The ship of all Major Ships! This was by far my favorite couple of the series. I love how they develop from one another to become the best they can be and how they inspire each other to be strong and “heroic.” Their passion, struggles and overall relationship is just so beautiful, I love them! I used to love Kai a lot since I started the series but it seems like Thorne may have stolen the spotlight!emma.gif
  4. Winter and Jacin – A classic Princess and the Guard tale. Their longtime friendship grows into something deeper and passionate and my god these two would do anything to protect each other no matter the costs and I just thought that they were so sweet for each other.

I also found it amazing that the women in this novel were so strong together and I loved how despite their different personalities, they supported one another. Typically in most YA novels we tend to see women against each other but it was so refreshing to see the opposite here. We are all on the same team! LOL and the guys were just hilarious. Especially Thorne and Kai! OMG I loved one particular scene with the two of them together where they were going back and forth with hilarious comments! Absolutely hysterical!

Its so sad that the series had to end. I ended up enjoying the story and the characters so much!!

Did you all enjoy the Lunar Chronicles? Let me know your thoughts down below!
