A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2)



92% 4.5/5 stars
Is Victoria Schwab capable of writing a bad book?
I dont think so.

The first book was magical and fantastic,but this is other level of awesomeness 

In this book , i was hook from the first page to the last. we visit more places and got to know the characters a lot better.
 If you haven't started this trilogy, you are doing something wrong, juts go and read the first book, or any book by Victoria Schwab.

I was not disappointed with this sequel and i will sell my kidney for the next book.


I WANT THE NEXT BOOK
I NEED THE NEXT BOOK






The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn #1)



In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad's dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph's reign of terror once and for all.

Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last. But something she never expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she'd imagined him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It's an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid's life as retribution for the many lives he's stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?

Inspired by A Thousand and One Nights, The Wrath and the Dawn is a sumptuous and enthralling read from beginning to end.

REVIEW:

THIS BOOK ! THIS BOOK!


I seriously give this book a 99% My best read of 2015. The writing style is a masterpiece, the character are so well rounded and the diversity of to die for. If you haven't read this book, go and read it you will not regret it.


I started this book in the one of the worst days of my life. It was raining consequently when I walk to school I got wet , I was late to school, had finals , I forgot the book I was reading at the time, I had my Physics AP final, the library was close so I couldn't print my project....IT WAS HORRIBLE!


In my school finals means classes of 3 hours. you always end the test like 1 hour before the bell rings in the worst case scenario, in a normal test you only need like 45 minutes to represent the final.YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS? It means LOTS LOTS LOTS of time to read. and I forgot my book. which  was the worst thing it could happen and the library was close so I couldn't grab a book there. I thank all the stars in heaven that the only book in my phone was The Wrath and The Dawn. 

When you start reading this masterpiece, is hard there is a lot and i mean A LOT of weird terms, English being  my second language strange terms are not my friends. just KEEP GOING is so so so so worth it.


Okay, spoilers from now on.


KHALID




Khalid is now in my TOP 5 of book boyfriends

1Will Herondale
2 Percy Jackson
3 Aaron Warner 
4 Khalid Ibnal-Rashid
5 Kaz Bekker



“Shazi, 

I prefer the color blue to any other. The scent of lilacs in your hair is a source of constant torment. I despise figs. Lastly, I will never forget, all the days of my life, the memories of last night—
For nothing, not the sun, not the rain, not even the brightest star in the darkest sky, could begin to compare to the wonder of you.

Khalid.” 

Their relationship was so real. it was not insta-love which is so reminiscence in literature nowadays. its built in respect and admiration for each other. 

“You are not weak. You are not indecisive. You are strong. Fierce. Capable beyond measure.” 

The pace of the book was perfection, it kept  me in the edge of my seat ALL THE TIME. Like i said before the writing if so gorgeous and poetic.

The friendship between Jalal and Shazi was so cute, they are my brotp 

“So you would have me throw Shazi to the wolves?”
“Shazi?” Jalal’s grin widened. “Honestly, I pity the wolves.” 


THE ENDING!! WAS NOT OKAY! I AM NOT OKAY!!! 


Now we have to wait until MAY  3 for this beauty.

To be honest, sometimes I dont know if Im going to be okay. they are days that the only thing I want in life is this book. 

If Khalid and Shazi dont end up together, my soul will open and it will become a black hole, which will destroy the universe.

Calamity (Reckoners #3) - Review



THE FEELS GUYS! THE FEELS!!!




As any Brandon Sanderson book this was AMAZING!!!! This dude seriously knows what he is doing. A book with action, romance, quirky, funny and amazing characters that what his book was !! 

[94% , 4.3 Starts] 

Okay spoilers from now on... SPOILERS!!!! 

First! First! First!!!!! WHAT THE HELL WITH TIA!!!!!!!!!!!! It wasn't fair that after all Prof has been through and all he has suffered that the love of his life is not there for him JUST NOT FAIR!!! I mean David get his dad back!!! He has his girlfriend, he got everything he ever wanted! And Prof he has nothing. 

Now, please dont thing I dont like david because i doo he is my favorite he is smart and funny and his metaphors are so on point! My favorite was: 

“We’re not moments, Megan, you and me. We’re events. You say you might not be the same person you were a year ago? Well, who is? I’m sure not. We change, like swirling clouds and a rising sun. The cells in me have died, and new ones were born. My mind has changed, and I don’t feel the thrill of killing Epics I once did. I’m not the same David. Yet I am.I’m glad you’re not the same Megan. I don’t want you to be the same. My Megan is a sunrise, always changing, but beautiful the entire time.”

His interactions with Megan where priceless, her powers still intrigued me!! I mean can she find a universe where the other Prof is dead and Tia is alone? Can she bring her permanently to our world? Even if she cant. 30 minutes of Prof and would really help Prof heal and move on. Maybe they can have like mini dates. 

Abraham, Cody and Mizzy still awesome, loyal and trustworthy. I most say this book Cody was that one that really shined. Mizzy was not as amazing as she was in Firefight unfortunately. 

Calamity being Lancaster was totally a SHOCK i was like wait wHAT ? O.o i feel like this should had focus on getting Prof back and all the book was truly about that but the end the Calamity part was just so rush. The 3rd book should have been call "Limelight" ans then 4 and last book "Calamity" where we focus on Calamity of course in megans powers and helping prof. I would also love to request a novella that is call " David learns to kiss"

In the end I really like this book but some thing still bother me. This is not a usual feeling in BS books because he likes to wrap everything up. Thats why i was so surprised when it left me with questions
