FATED - ALYSON NOEL - REVIEW

Book: Fated
Author: Alyson Noel
Publisher: PanMacmillan
ISBN: 9781447206804
Rating: A+


Strange things have been happening to Daire Santos. Animals follow her, crows mock her, glowing people appear from nowhere. Worried that Daire's having a breakdown, her mother sends her to stay with the grandmother she's never met, who lives on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico.There Daire crosses paths with Dace, a gorgeous guy with unearthly blue eyes. Her grandmother recognizes Daire's episodes for what they are - a call to her true destiny as a Soul Seeker, a person who can navigate between the living and the dead. Guided by her grandmother, Daire must be quick to learn how to harness her powers, because Dace's brother is an evil shape-shifter, out to steal them. Daire must embrace her fate as a Soul Seeker and discover whether Dace is the guy she's meant to be with ...or if he's allied with the enemy she's destined to destroy.


This was just what I needed. It was just such an amazingly mind-blowing novel, filled with mystery, magic, and a perfect boy. A typical Noel novel... and I loved it! I remember when the Evermore series ended I was really sad to see it go as it was one of my favourite series's but this most definitely filled the void it left. Ever and Damen? Who? It's all about Daire and Dace now. But seriously, this was a gorgeously written novel, with magic and suspense filling the pages and a story so unique It left me hungry for more!


The book is about a whole new type of humanoid creature. Soul seekers. Basically it's  about a girl named Daire who has these visions and goes to stay with her grandmother, who she hasn't met all her whole life and says she can help with the visions. She goes to stay in mexico and learns she is a soul seeker. Training starts, meets boy, the norm... then comes the baddie, he's taken her grandmothers should and...! Da, da, Daaaaa!


The story was so beautifully planned and such a honour to read. The plot flowed from chapter to chapter, and completely unique story, like nothing I have ver read before. The about of time and effort that must have gone into this book is quite clearly visible and that fact that Noel created a whole new typed of creature... well I praise her. The story line was quick, fast paced and kept me enthralled the whole time and before I knew it 500 pages had gone and I was left wanting so much more.


I thought Alyson Noels writing was beautiful before this but, my god, she's done it again... and better. The writing was just so eloquent, so musical! The writing was so lyrical and whimsical, the most stunningly vivid description playing out before your eyes and the most fantastic emotions being written. The balance with the dialogue and secretion was perfected to perfection and my god, this book was like chocolate cake! Sooo good, but leaves you wanting more.


Overall, I think the book was so gorgeously fantastic, with writing so beautiful it will make you melt and a story so perfect you'll be hungry for more.


Here is an amazing Excerpt for you to read! :

A COURT OF MIST AND FURY - SARAH J MAAS - REVIEW

Book:  A court of mist and fury
Author: Sarah J Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury Kids
ISBN: 9781408857892
Rating: A

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.

It has been a long time since I've loved a book as much this. A court of mist and fury is by far the best book that I have read in 2016 so far, and easy surpassed it's predecessor a court of thorn and roses.

The plot of this was so incredibly per…

Apologies and Explanations

Okay guys, we need to talk and by that I mean I have some apologies and explaining to do to you. So as you've more than obviously noticed I've been extremely inactive this year, even after promising I'd try to be more active. So now I'm going to explain why. By no means have I abandoned the blog nor do I want to. I seriously love this blog so much and connecting with you all and sharing my love for books and reading with you all. In fact it's really frustrating for me to be unable to devote the amount of time I'd like to to this blog. So to reader, authors and publishers, I'm insanely sorry for my lack of presence. Anyway apologies aside let me explain why it's been this way. Last September I started my first year of A levels and quite honestly I had no idea the amount of time they'd take up in my life and they did take up way loads of time. I found that not only did I have no time write blog posts but I had no time to read either, unless you count…
