So this month I only read a few books! Which isn't the best but still I read some good ones.
1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I really enjoyed this story a lot! I really can't wait to start the rest in the series. You can check out my review of Cinder here!
A forbidden romance.
A deadly plague.
Earth's fate hinges on one girl . . .
CINDER, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She's reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai's, she finds herself at the centre of a violent struggle between the desires of an evil queen - and a dangerous temptation.
Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth's future.
This is not the fairytale you remember. But it's one you won't forget.
2. Legend my Marie Lu. I had heard so much praise for this story and I absolutely adored it! Check out my review of Legend here!
Los Angeles, California, Republic Of America.
He is Day,
the boy who walks in the light.
She is June,
the girl who seeks her brother's killer.
On the run and undercover, they meet by chance.
Irresistibly drawn together,
neither knows the other's past.
But Day murdered June's brother
and she has sworn to avenge his death....
3. Those Above by Daniel Polansky. I enjoyed the story but not as much as I thought I would. The cover of the book is so beautiful though! Check out my review of Those Above here!
They enslaved humanity three thousand years ago. Tall, strong, perfect, superhuman and near immortal they rule from their glittering palaces in the eternal city in the centre of the world. They are called Those Above by their subjects. They enforce their will with fire and sword.
Twenty five years ago mankind mustered an army and rose up against them, only to be slaughtered in a terrible battle. Hope died that day, but hatred survived. Whispers of another revolt are beginning to stir in the hearts of the oppressed: a woman, widowed in the war, who has dedicated her life to revenge; the general, the only man to ever defeat one of Those Above in single combat, summoned forth to raise a new legion; and a boy killer who rises from the gutter to lead an uprising in the capital.
Those Above is the first of an extraordinary new fantasy epic by the author of the acclaimed Low Town series that will sweep the reader into a wholly alien, wholly recognizable world of rebellion and revenge, of love and of death, of intrigue and pitiless war.
4. Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder. I love Maria and she is my favourite author and I was so glad when she said she was bringing out Shadow Study and I loved it a lot! Check out my review of Shadow Study here!
