Mini Book Thoughts (2)

This new feature is something that I saw Shannon (from It Starts at Midnight) and Holly (from The Fox's Hideaway) mention on Twitter and it was the perfect feature because it's a list of all the books I've read but haven't gotten the chance to review (even though I really did plan on reviewing them), books that a lot of bloggers have already reviewed, and/or books I didn't have many thoughts on. This should hopefuly be an end of the month or beginning of the month feature :)

I quite enjoyed the way we meet Lilliana and Amon and the general direction this story takes. They basically go on this quest around the world to Egypt to help Amon find his brothers and defeat evil. As one does of course. I can't wait to see how Lilly's and Amon's relationship develops.

The Thing About Books: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

So we haven't done this feature in a while now and just to recap to those who are new to the blog: 
The Thing About Books is a feature in which Caitlyn and I talk about (usually fangirl) over books we love and need to talk about them. But this also means there will always be spoilers.

**Please only continue reading this post if you've already read the book for this post**

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas 
Release Date: September 1st, 2015 
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens 

Goodsreads Summary:
The queen has returned.

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 contrinues Celaena's epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

Goodreads Summary: 
Devon Tennyson wouldn't change a thing. She's happy watching Friday night games from the bleachers, silently crushing on best friend Cas, and blissfully ignoring the future after high school. But the universe has other plans. It delivers Devon's cousin Foster, an unrepentant social outlier with a surprising talent for football, and the obnoxiously superior and maddeningly attractive star running back, Ezra, right where she doesn't want them first into her P.E. class and then into every other aspect of her life.

Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights in this contemporary novel about falling in love with the unexpected boy, with a new brother, and with yourself.

Release Day Blitz: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson {Excerpt+Giveaway}

I am so excited that WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER by Rae Carson releases today and that I get to share the news, along with an awesome giveaway! If you haven’t yet heard about this wonderful new series by Rae Carson, be sure to check out all the details below.


Author: Rae Carson
Pub. Date: September 22, 2015
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Pages: 448

The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.

Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.
