Review: Library of Souls

*Sort of spoilers*

Title: Library of Souls
Author: Ransom Riggs
Publisher: Quirk
Year published: 2015
How I got this book: Bookdepository
My rating: 5 stars

Goodreads synopsis:

The adventure that began with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and continued with Hollow City comes to a thrilling conclusion with Library of Souls.

As the story opens, sixteen-year-old Jacob discovers a powerful new ability, an soon he's diving through history to rescue his peculiar companions from a heavily guarded fortress. Accompanying Jacob on his journey, are Emma Bloom, a girl with fire at her fingertips, and Addison MacHenry, a dog with a nose for sniffing out lost children.

They'll travel from modern-day London to the labyrinthe alleys of Devil's Acre, the most wretched slum in all of Victorian England. It's a place where the fate of peculiar children everywhere will be decided once and for all.

Like its predecessors, Library of Souls blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography. 

My thoughts:
I loved this book so much, and I'm so sad that this series is over.

This literally starts the moment Hollow City ends, which I really enjoyed, and it put me right back into the story, even it's been a year since I read the last one. This book was action packed all the way through, and I could feel it building up to something throughout the story, and it did not disappoint. 

The setting in this book was wonderful, and I felt like I was really there in Devil's Acre. I felt like we learned so much about peculiars, and how they live. I like the touch of ambro a lot, and that it was made out of Peculiar souls and that it melted the face of the users. 

And let's not forget Jacob's "new" power! I found it so fascinating that he could control hollows, and that he actually struggled with it. It wasn't like he discovered it, and then all of a sudden new how to use it perfectly. He really struggled, and almost got killed, because he didn't understand it. I actually startet to like hollows because of this power, and especially the first one he was able to do it with and the one carrying him around when he was injured. I felt connected to them, because Jacob felt connected to them, and I really wanted everything to be okay for them. 

We got so much information about how the wights happened, and the history of peculiardom. It was so fascinating, and I wish there was more. Everything is just so well thought out by Riggs, I don't understand how he does it.

 I don't even know what more to say about this book, besides the fact that I really enjoyed it. I, of course, wish Riggs would write more books, but I really liked the ending. It warmed my heart, and I don't feel the need for another story, at least not about the same people. The ending was just great, and I was positively surprised, as I was quite worried about it. But as always, Riggs did not disappoint me, and I enjoyed every page.

Top Ten Tuesday: Wishes for the Book Genie

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week the theme is wished you'd ask the book genie to grant, and though mine aren't that original, I'm sure it's something most book lovers agree with.

1. That J. K. Rowling will write more books about Harry and his friends.

2. Being able to read faster, but still understand what I'm actually reading. I need my TBR-pile to get smaller. Fast.

3. Cheaper books, or more money for books. I just need more, I can't get enough.

4. More hours in a day, so that I have time to read more. Or make me not need sleep, you know, whichever works best for you.

5. Being able to forget books I've read, so that I could read them again, and excperience the story for the first time all over again.

6. Every cover will match, so there will be no mid-series cover changes that just ruins everything.

7. My own home library. This is one of my ultimate goals, and I wouldn't mind some help from a genie to accomplish it. 

That's all I have for now, though I'll surely think of plenty more when I've posted this!

What would you ask of the genie?

Review: Queen of Shadows

*This review will contain plenty of spoilers*

Title: Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) 
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury 
Year published: 2015
How I got this book: BookDepository (Affiliate Link)
My rating: 5 stars

Goodreads synopsis:
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 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.

My thoughts:
I don't even know what to say about this book, and I apologise in advance that this review is incoherent and probably doesn't make a lot of sense.

First of all, lets talk about Aelin, or Celaena. I'm going to call her Aelin, because that's what I'm used to after reading this book. She is so fricking amazing, and I love her so much. She keeps developing, and I honestly wish that I was able to be her friends. I think my absolute favourite moment with Aelin was when she visited Sam's grave, and Rowan actually came with her. My heart hurt so much, and I just wanted to hug her. And she collected all of these stones, so she could choose the prettiest ones to put on his grave, and I just wanted to cry. I felt so sorry for her, and it reminded us that she actually cares about the people close to her, and she won't forget them.

Aedion. He really annoyed me in the beginning, with how he felt for Aelin. He just felt way too territorial for me, and that really ruined a lot of his character. He got better throughout the book though, which I'm super happy about. He's still not my favourite character, but he's likeable now, at least. 

Chaol. Oh my god, Chaol. My feelings for him are conflicted at the moment. I've never really been a big fan of him, especially not with Aelin/Celaena, so I'm glad that ship as sunk. I think they can become great friends later in the series, but I don't see them together, at all. He was so distant and irritated the first half of the book, and that made me not enjoy his chapters as much as I might have. I am glad, however, how everything turned out. And not that he might have to travel to the Southern Continents to meet a healer, I'm very excited about what's going to happen. I was so scared that he had died during the last battle, because even though he's not my favourite I still want him to survive, and Maas took so long to tell us wether he would be all right or not. But in the end, he turned out all right, even though he now is paralyzed from the waist down, which will be interesting in the next book.

Dorian. My heart broke every single time I read one of his chapters. I adore Dorian, and I only want him to be happy. I kept telling him to just keep trying, stay strong and so on. I did not deserve to have the collar and the Valg in his body, he's just so nice and wants what's best for everyone, and therefore he should have the best as well. The king made me so mad, and I can't understand how he could do that to his own son. Yes, he tells us that he had a Valg inside him all along, but I don't really believe all of that. He's just a jackass, and I'm glad Dorian doesn't have to worry about him anymore.

Rowan. My dear Rowan. I'm so in love with him, it's insane. I can't get over how good Maas is at writing swoon-worthy males. I had no idea that he would be showing up in this book, and I was so happy, and surprised, when he did. He's so supportive of Aelin, even when she doesn't so what he would. He just wants her to be happy, and he want her to be safe. He's so protective, and at times it's really sweet, and some times it's a bit too much. It's explained with the fact that he is a Fae, and that they are very territorial, and I get that, but I still founds it a bit much at times. One of my favourite moments between Rowan and Aelin was at the dinner at Arobynn's house with Aedion and Lysandra as well. They kept having this conversation with looks, and that's actually put into words so we can know what they say as well. I don't know how they have conversations like this with just looks, or how they understand each other, but it was so funny when Aelin was like "I'm not wearing any underwear" and Rowan bumped his knee in the table, making everyone turn. I actually laughed out loud at that.

Lysandra. This was not the first time we met Lysandra, she also appeared in The Assassin's Blade, but she had changed so much. In the Assassin's Blade she's one of Celaena's enemies, and I didn't like her at all. And then all of a sudden she shows up in this book, and I like her immediately. She en Aelin/Celaena developed this amazing friendship, and I feel like they both needed that. They both needed a girlfriend they can trust and talk to. And when we learn that she's a shape-shifter I just like her even more, because that's just awesome. I'm glad Aelin told her to leave Rifthold whilst they fought in the castle, I was glad. I didn't want Lysandra to be anywhere near that fight, because I wanted her to be safe. But I can't say that I wasn't pleasantly surprised when she changed into a ghost-leopard, after magic came back, and helped them. She's so bad ass! She totally saved Rowan, Aedion and Lorcan when they were in the tunnel.

Arobynn. I'm so glad he got killed, and I'm so glad Lysandra was the one who did it. The only thing is, I wish he hadn't gotten of so easy. I mean, yeah, he choked on his on blood, but still... To me, it didn't feel enough. I mean, this can just be me, but he had done so much horrible things in his life, and I felt he deserved to suffer a bit more. 

Manon. I've loved her from the beginning. I know a lot of people had problems with her in Heir of Fire, but I still adored her and really enjoyed her chapters. But the development she's had in this book is amazing and beautiful. She is, of course, not a good witch or anything, but I don't even think about that when I read her chapters, because in comparison to the other witches and stuff, she is pretty good. I think she's one of my favourite characters every, and I have to say I even like her more than Aelin (though I still really like her as well), and I really hope that they end up not being enemies in the end, because then I wouldn't know who to root for. When they actually met and started fighting in this book, I was so torn. I didn't want either of them to die, and I was so nervous and scared throughout the whole ordeal, but luckily though, it turned out all right. 

Elide. Elide was completely new in this series, as we hadn't heard anything about her before. She's human, but she also has some Blackbeack blood in her, which means that Manon takes her in and protects her. She's at Morath as well, and her uncle is one of the men in charge, and we find out that he as suspected her heritage, and actually want to use her for something horrific. He wants her to be a vessel of some sort I guess, to breed some monsters with the Valg. Luckily, Manon helps her and they escape. I have a feeling that Elide will be very important in the next books, considering the fact that the last thing we learned about her was that she was walking towards Terrassen to aid Aelin. 

I could write a lot more about this book, I have a lot on my heart. But I sort of think I've written too much already, and if you actually read the entire thing I'm super grateful, and I would be glad if you left me comment saying what you thought of this book. I actually hope some of you disagree with me, because it's always nice to learn what other people think to gain more perspective, but these are just my opinions. 

To sum it up a little bit though, I really liked it. It's the best in the series so far, and I'm super excited for the next one.

Review: The Last Olympian


Title: The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #5)
Author: Rick Riordan
Publisher: DisneyHyperion
Year published: 2009
How I got this book: I borrowed it from my library, but you can also get it at Bookdepository
My rating: 5 stars

Goodreads synopsis:

All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. 

While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Not it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigod to stop the Lord of Time.

In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy's sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilisation rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.

My thoughts:
I thought that The Battle of the Labyrinth was my favourite, but this proved me wrong. This doesn't follow the same formula that the other books follow, and that is so refreshing and exciting. It's so incredibly fast paced that I didn't realise how far I'd gotten until I was over halfway in. I read this book in just one sitting.

So, the other books follow this formula where Percy get's to camp, goes on a quest, succeeds and saves the day. But in this book, there is no quest. Percy can't save Olympus on his own. There's action throughout the entire book, and the suspense keeps building up.

I'm really sad that the series is over, because I really like them. We get to know the characters so well, and, I at least, am very attached to them. I know that we have The Heroes of Olympus, and whilst I love that series as well, it's not the same. There, we read from different perspectives, and in these books we only read from one, and I love reading as Percy. He's not the smartest person, but he is so brave and funny. 

This book felt just right, all the way through. Everything happened in a way that made sense, and nothing was rushed or prolonged. It was just right. And, even though this may just be my brain overanalysing things, I noticed something that hinted at the next series. Like, how they Percy thinks that they're safe from Hera, for now. And "Now fight me! For today the House of Hades will be called the saviors of Olympus." Again, this might just be me thinking too much, as I read The Heroes of Olympus series earlier this year, but it's something to think about, at least.

Review: The Battle of the Labyrinth

*This will contain spoilers*

Title: The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4)
Author: Rick Riordan
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Year published: 2008
How I got this book: I borrowed this at the school library, but you can get it here.
My rating: 4 stars

Goodreads synopsis:
Percy Jackson isn't expecting freshman orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly from bad to worse.
In this fourth installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos' army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders. To stop the invasion, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest though the Labyrinth - a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn.

My thoughts:
My absolute favourite so far! I love all the new things that are introduced in this story, especially the labyrinth. I think it's so fascinating, and I honestly wish I could explore it, despite how dangerous it is. 

Rachel Dare is my favourite character in this book, and I like how she's "just" a mortal but she can still see through the mist. 

The plot is incredibly fast paced, and there's always something new that happens. You never want to put the book down, you just want to continue until you reach the end, and then you want to grab the next one. I recommend these to everyone I know, because I think they're wonderful, and you learn a lot about greek mythology through the series as well.

Review: The Titan's Curse

*This contains spoilers as it is the third book in a series*

Title: The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)
Author: Rick Riordan
Publisher: Disney Hyperion Books
Year published: 2007
How I got this book: I borrowed this from the library, but you can also get it here.
My rating: 4 stars

Goodreads synopsis:

When the goddess Artemis goes missing, she is believed to have been kidnapped. And now it's up to Percy and  his friends to find out what happened. Who is powerful enough to kidnap a goddess? They must find Artemis before the winter solstice, when her influence on the Olympian Council could swing an important vote on the war with the titans. Not only that, but first Percy will have to solve the mystery of a rare monster that Artemis was hunting when she disappeared - a monster rumoured to be so powerful it could destroy Olympus forever.

My thoughts:
I'm honestly running out of things to say about these books, except for the fact that they just get better and better as I read. I have read the entire series before, but it is a couple years ago and I've forgotten a surprising amount of details. 

This will be a short review, as I don't know what to say about his. I really enjoy these books, and I want everyone to read them and at least give them a chance. I understand that everybody won't like them. I just love them, and I want to talk about them. I will be doing review for the two next books as well, even though I'll probably end up repeating myself a lot. So I apologise for that in advance.

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish things I want to quit or have quit

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

 I don't really have that many bookish things I want to quit or anything, so I'm just going to mention a lot of different things, so I apologise for the inconsistency in this post.

Firstly I want to mention on thing that I actually have quit, and that is worrying about my books looking perfect. That is, if I break the spine, dog ear or write in it it's okay, and then people borrowing that book can do it as well. But if it's a book that I've kept nice, I expect that they will look just as nice when people return them.

And then, I want to mention something that I want to quit. I feel like I have to own every single book I read, and I have to learn that I don't need to do that. It's okay to borrow books from the library or from other friends, and then I can rather just buy them if I know I'm going to read it several times or absolutely love it.

I usually always finish the books I start, and there's mainly two reasons for that. 1 - I'm starting to get good at knowing what I enjoy reading, and therefore I'm able to know if I'll enjoy a book before reading it, and I'm not a picky reader either. 2- - I always want to finish something when I've started it, and it really bugs me when I don't. So if I start a book and don't finish it, it's something that I really don't enjoy reading. As of now, I can actually only think of one book that I didn't finish, and that is Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder. I really wanted to read it, but I found it so boring that it almost put me in a reading slump. Sophie's World is actually supposed to be a great book, so I'm really sad that I didn't enjoy it. I founds the philosophical letters too boring, and they broke up the story too much for my taste. The main story, however, I think is great. I've been in a production of the musical based on this book, and that was amazing. I feel like i might pick it back up in a couple years, try it again and hopefully enjoy it more.

That's actually all I have for today, and I feel like it isn't that bad not to have much to say about this topic. But I am curious, do you have any books that you couldn't finish? And if so, which? And do you have some other bookish things that you want to, or have, quit?

Have an amazing day!

Review: Spinning Starlight

Title: Spinning Starlight
Author: R. C. Lewis
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Year published: 2015
How I got this book: I got this as an e-arc through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
My rating: 4,5 stars

Goodreads synopsis:
Sixteen-year-old heiress and paparazzi darling Liddi Jantzen hates the spotlight. But as the only daughter in the most powerful tech family in the galaxy, it's hard to escape it. So when a group of men show up at her house uninvited, she assumes it's just the usual media-grubs. That is, until shots are fired.

Liddi escapes, only to be pulled into an interplanetary conspiracy more complex than she ever could have imagined. Her older brothers have been caught as well, trapped in the conduits between the planets. And when their captor implants a device in Liddi's vocal cords to monitor her speech, their lives are in her hands: One word and her brothers are dead.

Desperate to save her family from a desolate future, Liddi travels to another world, where she meets the one person who might have the skills to help her bring her eight brothers home - a handsome dignitary named Tiav. But without her voice, Liddi must use every bit of her strength to convince Tiav that her mission is true. With the tenuous balance of the planets deeply intertwined with her brothers' survival, just how much is Liddi willing to sacrifice to bring them back?

Haunting and mesmerizing, this retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Wild Swans strings the heart of the classic with a stunning, imaginative world as a star-crossed family for survival in this companion to Stitching Snow.

My thoughts:
I don't read a lot of sci-fi, I feel like it's not for me, but this made me reconsider this. I enjoyed it so much, and I want more.

This is a retelling of H. C. Andersen's fairytale "The Wild Swans", and I have to admit, I didn't know what it was about. Therefore, I did some research so that I knew the original story before going into this book. I'm glad that I did, but that could be different from everyone. It didn't change how I felt about the story, I just like to know the fairytale that's being retold.

I thought the setting was absolutely brilliant, but I didn't actually think about it until after finishing the book. We follow Liddi, and when she's at her home planet, Sampati. If she leaves the house "paparazzi" will start following her immediately, and she can't do anything without making headlines in the media. I thought this made a clever comment on the society we have today, were celebrities can't do anything without the entire world finding out about it.

Liddi is one of my favourite heroines so far this year, and I felt like i connected and understood her a lot. She couldn't speak for most of the book, something I found interesting and really fun, but we got to know her through her thoughts and her background, and I really enjoyed that. I also liked Tiav a lot, and I fell a little bit in love with him myself. The romance was important, but her family was a lot more important to Libby, and therefore the romance wasn't the only thing she thought about, and I found that so refreshing. 

Between each chapter we got a little throwback about Liddi from her childhood, told in third-person (the rest of the book is written in first-person), and they were great for helping the reader understand her relationship with her family and getting to know her parents. And, even though I didn't realise this at first, each of the throwbacks has something to do with the following chapter, but not always in the way you expect. 

I will recommend this to several of my friends, and it's definitely re-read worthy. I'm so glad that I got the opportunity to read this before publication, and I want to thank NetGalley for that.

Review: A Thousand Nights

Title: A Thousand Nights
Author: E. K. Johnston
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Year published: 2015
How I got this book: I was lucky enough to get this from the publisher through NetGalley
My rating: 5 stars

Goodreads synopsis:
Lo-Melkhiin killed three hundred girls before he came to her village, looking for a wife. When she sees the dust cloud on the horizon, she knows he has arrived. She knows he will want the loveliest girl: her sister. She vows she will not let her be next.

An so she is taken in her sister's place, and she believes death will soon follow. Lo-Melkhiin's court is a dangerous palace filled with pretty things: intricate statues with wretched eyes, exquisite threads to weave the most beautiful garments. She sees everything as if for the last time. But the first sun rises and sets, and she is not dead. Night after night, Lo-Melkhiin comes to her and listens to the stories she tells, and day after day she is awoken by the sunrise. Exploring the palace, she begins tu unlock years of fear that have tormented and silenced a kingdom. Lo-Melkhiin was not always a cruel ruler. Something went wrong.

Far away, in their village, her sister is mourning. Through her pain, she calls upon the desert winds, conjuring a subtle unseen magic, and something besides death stirs the air.

Back at the palace, the words she speaks to Lo-Melkhiin every night are given a strange life of their own. Little things, at first: a dress from home, a vision of her sister. With each tale she spins, her power grows. Soon she dreams of bigger, more terrible magic: power enough to save a king, if she can put an end to the rule of a monster.

My thoughts:
A Thousand Nights is a retelling of One Thousand and One Nights, and simply because of that many will compare it to The Wrath and the Dawn. That shouldn't happen, in my opinion, as they are completely different books with completely different stories.

One thing about this book, that I didn't even realise until the very end, was that none of the characters had any names besides Lo-Melkhiin. I've never experienced that before, having a nameless heroine. I think it really worked in this book, and it was obvious that everything was thought through. 

The element of magic in the story was so fascinating, and it made it really unique. Even though nothing was explained in detail, it didn't matter. I didn't feel like I didn't understand what was happening, we got to know exactly what we needed, but nothing more. The feeling of not understanding everything was so fun and thrilling, and made me want to continue on.

This book is not fast paced at all. It's slow and builds up until the very end. Personally, I didn't mind that at all. I've been reading a lot of fast paced books lately, and I really enjoyed something that was slower for once. But if you need something to happen all the time, I don't think this book is the right one for you.

On of my favourite things about his story was the setting. I could picture everything in my head, and it was all so amazing. I could imagine how the city and the qasr looked like. And the small villages near the wadi, they seemed so nice and like a big family. This story seemed so realistic with the setting, considering the fact that it's supposed to take place in the Middle East. I have to admit that I've never been there, so I may be wrong, but again, it just seemed so realistic, without information being pushed on the reader. Everything came naturally.

I would definitely recommend this to, well basically everyone. Especially if they like fairy-tale retellings, stories set somewhere else than the US or England or people that like fantasy. I know I will be buying this as a christmas present to some of my friends, so they can read it as well.

October TBR


So, I usually don't do a TBR, I can never stick to them, but I decided that I wanted to try it this month. I don't know if this is something that I'll continue to do, we'll se how I like it.

This isn't a very ambitious list, and that's how I want it. Hopefully I'll be able to read more than these 5 books, but I don't want to put too much pressure on myself. I don't know how stressful this month will be, and I don't want to perhaps add to that pressure by setting my goal too high.

I'm already almost done with A Thousand Night, and there will be a review on that book. There will also be a review of Spinning Starlight coming up soon, as both of these books comes out the 6th this month and I want to post my reviews as close to the release date as possible.

I try to stick to posting on this blog Tuesday and Thursday, but there will be more in the next couple of weeks. The reason is that I've written reviews for several books that I want to post before it's been to long. I will not do a review on all of the books I read. Sometimes, I just don't have that much to say, and other times I have a lot to say. So I would rather post reviews about books I like and want to share with you, than books I didn't like that much.

I hope October will bring lots of joy to you! Do you usually follow a TBR or do just pick what you feel like at the moment?

The links will lead you to my review of the books. There won't be review for all of them, but there may be added more links later on, as reviews are published. I'm also considering posting an essay I wrote about The Swimmer, but only if some of you are interested, so it would be nice if you told me if you want to read that.

Remember that you can get these books, and others, from Book Depository. If you buy through my affiliate link I will get a small commission from each purchase, which would really help me out!

I hope you had a great reading month in September, and that you'll read good books in October!
