Little Break

Hey guys, I'm just writing this post to say that I am not going to be posting for a little while, maybe about a week and a half to two weeks and that is because I am doing my exams at the moment and I have no time or motivation to blog or read and I want my posts to be good so I think I should take a break for a little while!

That's all for today and thanks for reading

Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas

Title: Heir of Fire
Author: Sarah J Maas
Publishers: Bloomsbury
Page Count: 562

Goodreads Synopsis:
Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?

Recommended Books! #2

Hey guys! Sometime last year when I started my blog I did a book recommendations post (looking back at it now I am cringing because that was such an awful post). So I thought I would do another one since I've read many more books now and I am going to try and do ones that you may not (or may) have heard of!

(Warning, I have linked my reviews for some of these books and some of these books were reviewed WAY BACK so they are really bad so just keep that in mind!)

How Should We Rate Books?

A large part of reviewing books is rating them. Whether that means giving them a star rating, number out of ten, percentage etc, we all do it and it is a way to easily express what we thought of the book. We can rate books in many different ways, but what is the best way?

Goodreads Synopsis:

After enduring an abusive childhood and having her heart broken by the only boy she trusts, Alexis White vows to never let anyone hurt her again. She’s left her troubled past behind and starts a new life at college. For the past seven years, her social calendar has been filled with frat parties, drinking, and meaningless sexual hook-ups. Until one night she unexpectedly gets saved by a tall, dark, and handsome French foreigner, Luc Blanchard. He’s charming, sophisticated, and very interested in Lexi, who has presented herself as a challenge when she tells him relationships aren't her thing.

She finds herself sucked in by his own intriguing past. But everything changes when Dylan Priestley, the gorgeous boy who broke her heart and shattered her faith in friendship and love, suddenly shows up in her life again while back home on a visit. Dylan doesn't hide his feelings for Lexi, but she can't forgive or forget being betrayed by the one person she ever truly loved.

Despite the pain Dylan’s caused her, Lexi is once again drawn to the blue-eyed-boy-next-door. Will Lexi choose the man who seems perfect but hides a dark side or the boy who smashed her heart into pieces so many years ago?

I received a copy a copy of this book through Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
