Review I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest

I Am Princess XI Am Princess X by Cherie Priest
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

About :

Best friends, big fans, a mysterious webcomic, and a long-lost girl collide in this riveting novel, perfect for fans of both Cory Doctorow and Sarah Dessen; illustrated throughout with comics.

Once upon a time, two best friends created a princess together. Libby drew the pictures, May wrote the tales, and their heroine, Princess X, slayed all the dragons and scaled all the mountains their imaginations could conjure.

Once upon a few years later, Libby was in the car with her mom, driving across the Ballard Bridge on a rainy night. When the car went over the side, Libby passed away, and Princess X died with her.

Once upon a now: May is sixteen and lonely, wandering the streets of Seattle, when she sees a sticker slapped in a corner window.

Princess X?

When May looks around, she sees the Princess everywhere: Stickers. Patches. Graffiti. There's an entire underground culture, focused around a webcomic at The more May explores the webcomic, the more she sees disturbing similarities between Libby's story and Princess X online. And that means that only one person could have started this phenomenon---her best friend, Libby, who lives.

This book was REALLY GOOOD !!!!!!!!!!
Everything was great, mysterious, awesome and addictive.

Characters:Really awesome

Don't think too much about it, just start reading, it's a wonderful story about friendship and how the protagonist was right all along.

Charlie hasn't raised a spirit since she first discovered she could do so five years ago. That time, her father banished her. This time, she brings even more trouble upon herself.
People are now hunting Charlie all over London, but only one man succeeds in capturing her.
Lincoln Fitzroy is the mysterious head of a secret organization on the trail of a madman who needs a necromancer to control his newly "made" creatures. There was only one known necromancer in the world - Charlotte - but now there appears to be two. Lincoln captures the willful Charlie in the hopes the boy will lead him to Charlotte. But what happens when he discovers the boy is in fact the young woman he's been searching for all along? And will she agree to work for the man who held her against her will, and for an organization she doesn't trust?

Review Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly, #1)Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I never thought I would like this book but hey this is my year of reading books I never thought I would like.

And there is two things that bring up my attention ...
The 19th Century

I finish this book in one sitting and it was awesome and badass (especially for Eleanor) and it's just the first book... Imagine how incredible are going to be the next two.

The story is about a girl who ask a group that defeats zombies (in the book zombies are called the Dead) and spirits to find his brother that was kidnapped by the villain, the necromancer.

Characters: I just found another OTP to follow up and that pair is Eleanor and Daniel. I hate Eleanor's mother but the others characters like Joseph and Jie, I like them very much.
Setting: The 19th century, Philadelphia, US, and where zombies, ghost and magic , exist.
Narrative: Steady and in first person, in the point of view of Eleanor.
Cover: It's a gorgeous cover of the main character, Eleanor.
Story: Zombies, Spirits, The 19th century, a strong main character, magic, I haven't read something like this and it surprise me how good this book is.
Conclusion: This book was lovely, the characters likable (except for like 2 or 3), the story leave me wanting for more.

Well after I finish this lovely review, I'm going to search for the next book, I need to know what is going to happen and the good thing is that all the books have been release so my burden to wait for the other book is not going to be big.

Review Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Imagine a time when the gods turn a blind eye to the agony of men, when the last of the hellions roam the plains and evil stirs beyond the edges of the map. A time when cities burn, and in their ashes, empires rise.

Alexander, Macedonia’s sixteen-year-old heir, is on the brink of discovering his fated role in conquering the known world but finds himself drawn to newcomer Katerina, who must navigate the dark secrets of court life while hiding her own mission: kill the Queen. But Kat’s first love, Jacob, will go to unthinkable lengths to win her, even if it means competing for her heart with Hephaestion, a murderer sheltered by the prince. And far across the sea, Zofia, a Persian princess and Alexander’s unmet fiancée, wants to alter her destiny by seeking the famed and deadly Spirit Eaters.

Game of Thrones + Greek Mythology+ Magic = THIS BOOK.

Since a few days ago, I wanted to read this book and you know what ... I REALLY like it.


This book is epic, fun and really good. I'm pleased that this book have ACTUAL historical reference and it's a retelling Alexander the Great(even thought that I haven't read about him but probably will do at the end of this review).

I am very glad that in this book that females are fierce and willing to do anything they want. And the males are not mean and they are strong. 

Story: Is totally different between the main characters, every single character have their own ambitions and goals and differs between each other but pretty much in the synopsis tells you everything you need to know about it to begin with the book.
Characters: In this book we have 7 main characters: Katerina, Alexander, Cynane, Jacob, Zofia, Hephaestion and Olympias.
Narrative: It's a steady and in third person, between the 7 main characters.
Setting: In 336 BC in both Macedonia and Persia, in which the Greek mythology and magic exist.
Cover: Really PRETTY.

CONCLUSION: I really like it, it was epic like Game of Thrones but with Alexander The Grea (not like a good fan fiction of the British history like GoT) and in an actual place which I really like.

And now pretty much I have to wait until September of 2016 to know what is going to happen next.

Really ?!?!?!


THAT'S TO FARR!!!!!!!!!!!!


READ THE BOOK !!!! You will not regret reading it!!!!!!!!

Review The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

The Witch Hunter (The Witch Hunter, #1)The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book, man , this book ...

The story is great if you love fantasy and witches. Besides look at that gorgeous cover.

We have this girl that is wrongly accused of witchcraft and she is rescued from jail by the biggest and powerful wizard of the entire kingdom in exchange that she will break the curse lay upon the wizard.


I had my doubts to continue the book because at the middle it got a little bit of tedious but man, I am glad I finish it, the final was awesome and adorable.

*Characters: You will love all of them, except one miserable and little person.
*World: It's a great world and the book have a beautiful map.
*Narrative: Steady and in first person.
*Story: Unique (view spoiler)
*The cover: Read the book and you will understand the meaning of the beautiful symbol.

Give it a chance, it's worth it and it's a fresh unique story.

Review Heist Society by Ally Carter

Heist Society (Heist Society, #1)Heist Society by Ally Carter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After so many time, I got chance to read this book.

If about a young lady willing to do anything to avoid his father getting in problems that he was accused to do but he didn't do it.

The way that the author, narrates this story is in third person and the pace is steady.

This is the first book I read of Ally Carter, and honestly this is a great book but If I have read it when I was more younger I would enjoy it better.

The characters are nice and fun.

About romance, this book doesn't have romance.

Review Lion Heart (Scarlet #3) by A.C. Gaughen

Lion Heart (Scarlet, #3)Lion Heart by A.C. Gaughen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I must say that this book was different, A LOT DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHERS BOOKS OF THE TRILOGY.

The point that begins with the story is after a few weeks after the ending of the previous book, Lady Thief.

The pace was steady and not to rush except with the ending , it was for me very rush.

The characters:
In this book did not appear my favorite character, because something tragic happen to him in the previous book. But this time we had to spend more time with a minor character of the previous book and a new character.

Pro: We got to explore more of England, not just Nottingham. Scarlet is even more badass than the previous books and is willing to do anything to protect her people and her home.
Cons: I had big hopes for this book and that ending, we didn't spend a lot of time with Robin than I hoped.

My feelings about this book are totally different than the previous book, Lady Thief, and even more with the first book of the trilogy, Scarlet.

Review Absolutely True Lies by Rachel Stuhler

Absolutely True LiesAbsolutely True Lies by Rachel Stuhler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Absolutely True Lies is the debut novel by Rachel Stuhler. By being honest, I never thought I would like this book but when I started it was hard to stop reading and do something else.

It was lovely and fun. I finish it in two days.

Finally in this book we know what happens in a fictional behind-the-scenes about the point of view of the ghostwriters and famous people that wants to do memoirs of their live. And in this book is about a struggling writer hired to do the memoir of a child star, blockbuster actress, and emerging pop star.

Since the beginning of the story, we can see that the story is interesting and wanting to know what the main character, Holly, is going to do and going to choose. But let's say that somethings are going to get crazy and you only want to know more and more about it. And that ending...


Is one of the best endings in Contemporary genre I have ever read it,there is a special character that reveals something and everything makes just sense, that just simple that characters have become one of the clever characters I have ever read.

I love the narration it was in first person and the pace was not rushed it was great.
The characters, I love them , principally Holly, Ben and Daisy.
The story, I really like it is very original, fun and unexpected.
The cover is gorgeous with the heart glasses and the tittle.

Short Review- The Queen of Tearling by Erika Johansen

The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #1)The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

I have really big hopes for this book but sadly it didn't catch my attention. The writing and the pace was so slow that I rather do anything else than reading this book. I must say the synopsis and the cover really interesting but when you read is different than it seems.

Review - An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1)An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book have been recommended from the author Lauren DeStefano.

"Fear is only your enemy if you allow it to be".

"Fear can be good, Laia. It can keep you alive. But don't let it control you. Don't let it sow doubts within you. When the fear takes over, use the only thing powerful, more indestructible, to fight it: your spirit. Your heart".

I must say that this book have left me speechless, it's 2:56 am, I can't sleep, I want more. Even thought it didn't catch my attention in the beginning but in twitter there was a lot of people (principally Lauren DeStefano) talking about it and expressing that it was an awesome book, so I decided to give it a chance. And believe me, I was wrong and the people from twitter were right.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir, it's a must read and a must have in this year. Because, well I'm going to give you a list :
1) The cover , it's gorgeous.
2) The title , at the beginning it's kinda weird , but after reading it now I love it and now I considered one of my favorite tittles of books.
3) Laia, she gets the most character progressing and now I consider that she is a fierce heroine.
4) The story, it's mind-blowing, it was so much better than I expected and it was AWESOME.
5) The characters in this book are diverse & interesting.
6) The world that Sabaa made it's speechless and diverse.
7) The ending, I want more okay ? I like it very much.
8) I was not able to put it down I just finish the books in two sitings, the story is intriguing and mysterious, you only think while reading this is "MORE, I WANT MORE".
9) The villain (let's call it They, shall we?) , they place one of the worst villains I ever read in my entire life, but they was was so determined, sadistic and mean that believe me, They bring my attention pretty much.
10) It have not only one map, it have two. One for the whole continent and the other for the school.
11) This entire book. It leave me so speechless that I need to do this review at this hour because if I write it later, I will forget writing it and I need to talk about it.
12) The chapters are interesting because they alternate between the two main characters, Laia and Elias.

If you ask me if reading this book was worth it, I'm going to tell you HELL YEAH YOU MUST. READ IT NOW IT'S ALL WORTH IT.

Now I'm going to suffer because AEITA 2 is going to be out in April 26 of 2016 and that is too much time *goes in a corner to cry *.
