Guessing the plots from fan art and tumblr!

Disclaimer: There might be spoilers but also all of this could be wrong.

Shadowhunters: Teenagers covered in tattoos fight evil ninjas. The TV show is apparently better than the books and the author is an asshole. Everyone ships the blond guy and the redheaded girl even though they seem to be siblings, and a dark-haired guy called Alec at some point made out with a glittery Asian DJ?

Divergent: Teenagers also covered in tattoos fight mysterious dystopian government which sorts them into sci-fi versions of the Hogwarts Houses and apparently has sumptuary laws about not wearing anything that isn’t black. At some point, you jump off a building in a very extreme game of parachute. Somebody dies at the end and nobody talks about it.

Percy Jackson: Summer camp for bastard offspring of various Greek deities. Chapter titles look like Fall Out Boy songs. The movie was terrible. Rick Riordan is milking this for all it is worth.

Grisha Trilogy: Everyone is Russian and into BDSM. Also, antlers.

Throne of Glass: Girl assassin is supposed to protect somebody from something and has sex in a closet with somebody named Chaol?

The Selection: Fairy tale version of The Bachelor with a really annoying protagonist.

The Maze Runner: Hunger Games/Lord of the Flies slashfic sausagefest.  

Vampire Academy: Vampire royalty need personal bodyguards at their fancy prep school for some reason. People fight with sticks. Stakes? I don’t know they just look like sticks.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe: Gay boys indistinguishable in fan art from the gay boys in Song of Achilles go on a road trip and wear Chuck Taylors. One of them is Latino? I think there’s a pool involved.

The Raven Cycle: Asian girl named Blue babysits a group of gay boys in a weird Southern town called Cabswater or Carpswater or something. One of them dies but doesn’t seem to actually go away? Someone turns into a tree.

Stephanie Perkins’ books: Cutesey heterosexual rom-coms which take place in Romantic with a capital R European cities and one of the boys is named after a bug.

Okay, how did I do?

The Valiant #1 By Lesley Livingston

Synopsis:

Princess. Captive. Gladiator.

Fallon is the daughter of a proud Celtic king, the sister of the legendary warrior Sorcha, and the sworn enemy of Julius Caesar.

When Fallon was a child, Caesar’s armies invaded her homeland, and her beloved sister was killed in battle.

Now, on the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Fallon is eager to follow in her sister’s footsteps and earn her place in the fearsome Cantii war band. She never gets the chance.

Fallon is captured and sold to an elite training school for female gladiators—owned by none other than Julius Caesar. In a cruel twist of fate, the man who destroyed Fallon’s family might be her only hope of survival.

Now Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries and deadly fights—in and out of the arena. And perhaps the most dangerous threat of all: her forbidden yet irresistible feelings for Cai, a young Roman soldier.

Review:

Definitely, check out this book if you liked Throne of Glass or An Ember in the Ashes!! It’s a really fun YA historical fiction story (very little fantasy) about a group of badass teen female gladiatrices in ancient Rome.

Fallon starts out as the fierce warrior daughter of a Celtic king. She just wants to make her own name in battle and be named a warrior chief, but then she’s kidnapped and sold as a gladiatrix in Rome. Her older sister who trained her to fight was killed by the Romans, so Fallon’s not too fond of them… except then a really cute one shows up and Fallon is all sorts of CONFLICTED. For a few chapters. 

I don’t really want to say too much more about the plot because there’s a spoiler in the beginning and a big one in the middle that are kind of central to everything. So I’ll just say that Fallon trains with a group of girls who all fight for Caesar. (Yeah, as in Julius Caesar. He and Cleopatra show up). A guy offers to buy Fallon’s freedom but she’s determined to earn it herself. Then someone keeps leaving crow feathers and dead birds as threatening messages to Fallon and she finds herself in a weird mess with powerful people. 

Fallon’s guided by the Morrigan (the Celtic goddess of war/death), so I was TOTALLY into the book once any hint of Celtic mythology showed up. I really, really liked Fallon’s character, too. She was incredibly strong, flawed, and learned throughout the course of the story. And I liked the guy she fell in love with, but the actual romance itself escalated to full intensity out of nowhere (especially considering the events in the first few chapters). 

But I liked how sisterhood was such a central part of the story… both with family and friends. And I appreciated that this wasn’t the cliche plot of a girl out to kill everyone and/or overthrow the rulers for revenge. Fallon was fighting for herself

The battle scenes are pretty awesome!! Fallon’s sister always asked her if she was a weapon or a target, so that’s kind of a theme throughout the story. There’s this super impossible maneuver that nobody can do in battle except for Fallon… but not because she’s a super special snowflake. She can do it because she worked at it for years.

This story doesn’t waste any time getting started and never really slows down. It’s pretty fast-paced the whole way through, which is great because you’re never bored. Buuut that also means some of the relationships end up being pretty shallow. I’m not sure if those characters were just thrown in and will be established or used more in the next book, but I kind of wanted more in a lot of areas. Everything that happened was really interesting and I liked it all! It just flew by really quickly and kind of skimmed the surface of what it could’ve been. The last half of the book really crammed in a ton for the sequels to build on, though, so this series seems like it will only get better. 

Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy!

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Synopsis:

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jeweled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

Review:

Guys, this was SO GOOD. It’s one of those books that makes you want to reread it the second you’re finished with it. You devour it and you just need to go back and relieve the awesomeness again. It’s THAT good. I read it in two days and never even felt the time pass.

It’s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but with Sarah’s stunning writing, it becomes so much more than that. It becomes a story on its own, original and breathtaking, with compelling characters, set in a beautiful world that screams fantasy. It’s the story of Feyre, a human girl who kills a wolf in the woods, only to later find out it was actually a faerie; she must pay retribution for what she’s done and, when Tamlin, the beast, comes to collect her, she goes with him to his court. The Spring Court. There, she finds out about a curse placed upon it and she discovers more and more about the world of faeries, which endangers her.

I am having trouble expressing just how much I loved this book and this story. It’s beautifully written. The best part for me was the fact that it didn’t feel like a retelling, it felt original and only when I really sat and thought about it did I spot the similarities with The Beauty and the Beast. For me, that’s a plus. I loved the twists and turns that Sarah weaved in the story and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for us in the next book.

I adored the characters. Feyre is an incredible female character and I loved her interactions with the three boys in her life: Tamlin, Lucien, and Rhysand. She’s smart, determined, ruthless when it comes to protecting the ones she loves. Her relationship with Tamlin shocked me, I absolute disliked him. With that being said Sarah has GREAT character building. On the other hand, I loved that Sarah wasn’t afraid to explore a more sensual relationship between them and she did it so well – those scenes are sexy and hot and I loved them. I have my issues with Rhys, but I’m very curious to see where their relationship will end up in the next book. As for Lucien, bless his soul, he must be protected at all costs!

All in all, read this book and do it now. It’s fantastic. If you’re a Maas fan, this is definitely for you. If you’re only now looking into her, I’d recommend starting with A Court of Thorns and Roses, it’s easier to get into than Throne of Glass and it will allow you to familiarize with her beautiful writing. 

Favourite quotes:

“I threw myself into that fire, threw myself into it, into him, and let myself burn.”

“We need hope, or else we cannot endure.”

“I love you,’ he whispered and kissed my brow. ‘Thorns and all.”

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Synopsis: 

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.

Review:

Words still fail me and it’s been almost a week since I’ve finished this book. It was spectacular. Fantastic. Unbelievable. Out of this world beautiful. I can keep going. It’s probably the strongest sequel I’ve ever read and it just soared on the top spot for my favorite book of the year. Sara has outdone herself with this one and it shows. It’s remarkably beautifully written, it ensnares you from the very first page and it’s hard to believe, but it gets better and better with. each. page. Sarah weaves such an intricate tale and it’s hard to believe where we’re at, at the end of ACOMAF, compared to where ACOTAR has started. It’s like a different story altogether, but it’s amazing to see the progression of Feyre’s story and how far she’s gotten.

This is one of those books that you don’t necessarily expect to blow your mind, especially since it’s a sequel, and sequels tend to not be as good as the first book (that dreaded Second Book Syndrome that everyone hates), but it’s definitely not the case with ACOMAF. The story progressed beautifully from the end of the first book and it went places I never thought it could go. Most importantly, nothing felt forced. Nothing felt unnatural. Everything felt smooth and fluid. And the writing was breathtaking. I absolutely adored the descriptions and I love how much the world has expanded from the first book. We got to travel further into Prythian and it’s beautiful and can someone get me there right now?

As for the characters…. holy cow! Oh my god. Unbelievable. The Feyre in the beginning of ACOTAR is nothing like the Feyre at the end of ACOMAF. It’s not out of character, it’s character growth and development and I loved every second of it. Feyre comes into her own, she shows how kickass she can be and it’s beautiful to watch. I love that Sarah has introduced so many new characters, and that she makes you fall in love with them so effortlessly. You care about them instantly and I think that’s something impressive for an author – to make you feel connected to every single character they write. No matter if they’re heroes or villains.

Please read this book. It’s phenomenal. It’s too good for words. You 100% won’t regret one second of it.

Special mention for sexually explicit scenes. I don’t remember exactly how many there are, but they’re there and if you’re sensitive to them, bear this in mind.

Favourite quotes:

“No one was my master— but I might be master of everything, if I wished. If I dared.”

“I am broken and healing, but every piece of my heart belongs to you.”

“To the stars who listen—and the dreams that are answered.”

“You sent that music into my cell. Why?” Rhysand’s voice was hoarse. “Because you were breaking. And I couldn’t find another way to save you.”

Now, for a bit of a spoiler-y discussion:

Feyre and Rhysand. These two are perfect together. They were friends before anything else. And their relationship progresses so naturally, it’s not forced at all. It’s not insta love. It’s two people getting to know each other and respect each other and be partners. Equals. The end of ACOMAF destroyed me. I was so scared that their bond had been shattered, I was literally unable to function. When I found out she had become High Lady and she’ll essentially be a spy, I started crying. The last sentence of the book is one of the most powerful and amazing lines I’ve ever read in my life. It’s everything.

I loved how the focus was on Feyre’s choices. She always had a choice with Rhysand, as opposed to Tamlin. I do believe Tamlin loves/d her, but Under the Mountain twisted them both to the point where his good intentions went sideways. He couldn’t understand her anymore. His selfishness started to break through. The fact that Lucien would dare act against Amarantha, but backed down when he thought he had pushed Tamlin too far speaks wonders about Tamlin’s character. The betrayal at the end…I just couldn’t. I couldn’t believe he could do that. I do hope we’ll get to see some redemption for him. I don’t believe he’ll come out of this story alive, though. 

So many amazing female characters! Amren and Morrigan are just…perfection. I loved how Sarah touched on the treatment of women, through Morrigan’s story and that of the Illyrian women in the camps, women who are often seen only as tools for breeding, with no choices of their own, with no means of deciding their own destiny. The rest of the Inner Circle has stolen my heart permanently. I just want them all to be okay after the story is done.

As for Rhysand…he has become one of my all time favorite characters. He’s such a complex, intricate individual, I can’t believe I thought poorly of him during ACOTAR. He is a perfect example of how men should act. He’s absolutely flipping fantastic. He’s powerful, cocky, snarky, sarcastic, but underneath it all, is someone who has suffered for the good of his people and his friends. He has such a deeply ingrained instinct to protect, but he never holds it over Feyre’s head and ultimately leaves her to make the choices she wants. He has faith and trust in her and that won me over immediately. It’s hard not to compare him with Tamlin, but Tamlin doesn’t hold a candle to Rhysand. He’s perfect, that is all.

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Synopsis:

Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit – and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.

Review:

READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.


Wow, where to begin with this one? It’s not many times that I can say an author lived up to my expectations—and that they followed through with nearly everything I wanted to happen. I’ve been let down so many times in “final books” or shows.

Maas did not let me down.

This book is very appropriately named ACOWAR, for this truly is a book of war. From start to finish. Even though I would say I enjoyed ACOMAF better, that’s not because it was necessarily a better book. This book is IMPRESSIVE and probably Maas’ best book. It’s not just everyone twiddling their thumbs until the end of an anti-climactic battle. No, there are plenty of small battles that lead to the final, epic one.

Which ultimately means this book was very different than the first two. Much of this book is dedicated to planning, being in war camps, training, and leading up to the battles. Which at times can be a bit taxing, but that’s what war is. It’s not meant to be glamorous and sunshine and giggles. Maas did manage to mix in plenty of humor and romance though, which I thought was balanced perfectly.

She really went for it. She made it feel epic and larger than life—a WAR. Which is super impressive considering this is told from Feyre’s perspective. We only get Rhysand’s POV twice. Maas very cleverly placed Feyre throughout the story so that we as the reader wouldn’t miss the action. She brought in characters from the first two books and it honestly felt like I was watching a movie. This is a book you want to SEE made into a movie or TV show. I had tears in my eyes, more than once which doesn’t happen to me often, but this book is EMOTIONAL. You feel that exhaustion, that despair, that hope, with these characters.


So let’s talk about them.

Feyre, our darling heroine. I absolutely loved her journey, her growth. She transforms into a true High Lady. She’s the type of heroine you want to read about. I absolutely loved everything about her story. Now looking at the covers…this is so interesting. ALL covers feature Feyre in back with her tattoo. We have plaything Feyre on the cover of ACOTAR, barely on the cover. Then we have soldier Feyre on ACOMAF’s cover, and she’s more prominent on the cover. Then we have High Lady Feyre, front and center, on this cover. It’s just so beautiful. *sobs* Feyre makes some bad calls here and there but I can’t help but love her anyway. She’s so REAL.

And because I can’t talk about her without talking about Rhysand—wow, what a pair. This is how romance should be written. Their love did not falter in this book. It only grew, and we got to see them working together as High Lord and Lady. (I can’t explain how relieving it is to have a heroine WANT power, use it, wield it, and not be ashamed or villainize herself, or villainize the “love interest” for doing the same.) They are that power couple you crave in every fantasy book.

He is just perfect. I can’t say a single negative thing about him. He’s everything I want in a male lead character. ( and everything I want in a life partner myself.)  Seeing how far Feyre and Rhys have come…it’s just stunning. Makes my chest ache with its perfection. Their equality, their trust, and respect, their belief in the other…I don’t think I’ve ever read a better romance.

And spoilers but…yes, the Bone Carver was, in fact, their future son. *sobs again*

Speaking of family…Mor, Cassian, Azriel, Amren.

They were so, so wonderful. All of them. I loved how Feyre got to spend one-on-one with each of them. There were some very critical scenes with each one. Azriel got much more time in this book and I loved getting to know him a little more.

Speaking of Azriel…DO I SHIP HIM AND ELAIN OR WHAT. YES. When I read ACOMAF, I just…couldn’t get into Mor/Azriel romantically. I actually thought Mor connected better with Cassian, and Azriel connected almost instantly to Elain. And when Lucien ended up her mate…I couldn’t get on board that with either. As much as I love Lucien, they felt like two pieces of a puzzle that don’t really fit.

Maas did not disappoint me. There were more Elain/Azriel moments by far than Lucien/Elain. Which leaves my heart in a dilemma because Lucien is one of my favorites and I’d hate to see him hurt. But…I can’t deny that there’s really not much connection between Elain and Lucien. Not yet at least. If anything, it feels like he’s trying to do what he thinks he should be doing with a mate.

We do meet Elain’s fiancé, Grayson. There’s a moment when Feyre suggests Elain was hoping love could triumph over the mating bond and to me that’s a bit of foreshadowing. Not with Grayson, but Azriel. I’m going to call it now: Elain and Lucien will be like Tamlin and Rhys’ parents: mates, but not necessarily right for each other romantically. I’m predicting Elain/Azriel as endgame, with Lucien possibly with Vassa—a new character we meet in the end.

This brings me to a slight gripe: Lucien was sidelined after the beginning. Once he got to the night court, we didn’t get much of him, and then soon he was off to search for Vassa. I was disappointed. It also felt unrealistic to me for everyone in the inner circle to speak so freely around Lucien—Tamlin’s right-hand man. I also can’t stand the idea that Tamlin and Lucien won’t work together. It’s sort of indicated that Lucien might be staying in the night court, but it’s a bit open. Despite everything, I’d hate that friendship to burn.

Speaking of which, let’s talk about Tamlin. I wasn’t entirely happy with how quickly Feyre was to villainize him. She goes as far to wonder how Rhys stomached Amarantha when she’s playing a spy in spring court and I thought…um, you LOVED Tamlin. He loved you. He didn’t destroy your world, take your powers, and enslave you. So not quiiiiite the shame.

When we learn that Tamlin *gasp* was planning to find a way around the bargain with Hybern and work against him once Feyre was safe, Feyre is surprised. Like…really? I sure wasn’t. I called it the moment he showed up in ACOMAF. Tamlin isn’t a monster or the human slaughtering type. Feyre destroyed his court and that somewhat backfired. I was glad because I didn’t think Feyre was right in that regard. I’m not Tamlin’s biggest fan, but he gets majorly screwed over when you consider the whole series. He loses Feyre, he loses Lucien, he loses a lot of his court, he loses his soldiers…I hope Maas did this not to punish him, but to set him in the sequels. Because I do truly hope he finds happiness. I know many people wanted him to suffer, but I didn’t. He made some poor decisions, his lack of communication and guarded nature did not help him in his relationship, and he never learned to face what happened under the mountain.

Hopefully, in the sequel, he will be able to. He fights with our heroes and saves Feyre AND Rhys—again, no surprise there. He was never a villain. He just wasn’t right for Feyre.

Nesta and Elain were pleasant surprises. At first, I was unhappy we’d get more of them but now that I’ve finished…I’m so glad. They both grew so much and have unique, interesting arcs that tie into the plot. Nesta…she thaws a little more. She shares some really nice moments with Feyre and even their father. I wish her shit got called out more—Mor is literally the only one that ever does—but for the most part, her growth is very good. I can say I finally enjoy Cassian and Nesta together.

I loved Elain’s development and GOODNESS AZRIEL GIVES HER TRUTH-TELLER AND SHE SLAYS THE KING WITH IT. I couldn’t even. Nesta will no doubt get credit for it because she twisted the blade, but she was down and Elain is the one who truly deserves the credit. She stabbed him, allowing Nesta to finish him. It was glorious.

We didn’t get quite as much Amren as I would have liked, but she still had a huge importance. She SLAYED. We also got to see Cassian in action as the general. He too was glorious and I loved seeing him in a larger role. I ADORE his friendship with Feyre. He had so many moments in this book to where I was just lkjsfnmskads. I love him.

JURIAN. I forgot to mention him. He was such a pleasant surprise. Reading ACOTAR, I never would have thought he’d have such an important role. Such an asshat but a hilarious one. I’m interested in what’s ahead for him.

We see Rhys in beast form. We see Amren’s true form. We see the Bone Carver slay. We see the unification of the courts. We see all the High Lord’s in action. We see EVERYTHING you can possibly want. (Except a damn wedding. When will Maas EVER write a wedding we want? Lol Okay, this book wasn’t the place, but it could have been the epilogue, damn it!)

Anyway, I could go on and on. This series is something special. This book wraps up well but leaves a lot open for the upcoming installments.

“Stay with the High Lord.”

I think my heart exploded at this point. You’ll know why when you read it. Yes, I cried.\

Prepare yourselves. You will laugh. You will cry. You will rage. You will smile. You’ll feel so much of everything that your chest will ache.

As I said, this book is not perfect. But it will make you FEEL. It will stay with you long after you put it down. And that, perhaps, is more beautiful than perfection itself.

Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer ( Vol. 1)

Synopsis:

When rogue packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers threaten the tenuous peace alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko takes it upon herself to hunt down the soldiers’ leader. She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity. With appearances by Cinder and the rest of the Rampion crew, this is a must-have for fans of the series.

Review:

1. This book is set after Winter (Lunar Chronicles book #4) so you must have read that series as there are spoilers.

2.This is a graphic novel, but it is hardcover and smaller than most graphic novels (it looks like a book). The dimensions are approximately 9″ by 6.5″.

3.The designs are in blue, black and white only.

Wires and Nerve was such an amazing book. It really exceeded my expectations. I had no idea if this graphic novel was going to simply be a cute story about Iko, or if we would see all of our favorite Lunar Chronicles characters.

This story follows Iko. It takes place after Winter (book #4) and includes all of our favorite characters: Cinder, Kai, Cress, Thorne, Scarlett, Wolf, Iko, Winter, and Jacin.

There are some wolf-hybrid soldiers causing a lot of trouble. So Iko takes it upon herself to help out Cinder.

I absolutely loved this story. We get to see all of our favorite characters. And we get to see what they are all doing post-Winter. We also get to see a character called Kinney (Cinder’s royal guard). I loved his interactions with Iko.

This story ends with a big cliffhanger. I cannot wait to read the next book! My only small complaint is that I wish the designs had more colors.  Even the cover has a pretty orange/red. I would have loved to see the designs be more vibrant. But it was interesting to see a graphic novel done in only blues.
