Bookworm Reads Part 2
📚Book Review! ✨ A Court of Silver Flames
Alright let’s talk A Court of Silver Flames! First off, this is NOT a YA book, the entire series has been rebranded as ADULT fantasy (which I somehow missed so my apologies!!) and lemme tell ya, the spice level is absolutely indicative of this new branding 😂😂🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 But that aside, Nesta’s story is about healing. Healing relationships, healing a broken world and most importantly, healing yourself. Nesta’s journey is one through abuse, trauma, and self worth issues.
I loved this book. The storyline grabbed me and never let go, though I will say for MY personal taste, the spice was a bit more than I was ok with BUT I still loved it. Feyre is still my favorite but Nesta holds a special place in my heart and now I want an Elain storyline. These Archeron sisters are just the best.
Book review ✨✨✨ The Island at the End of Everything
It’s the early 1900s in the Philippines and Ami and her mother live together on Culion Island - a refuge for lepers and their children. When a government agent comes and takes away all the “clean” people from the island Ami is separated from her mother and taken to another place. Once there she befriends other children desperate to get back to their own families. They begin on a journey through island jungles, across the ocean, and discover their own strength through it all.
This was a heartbreakingly beautiful story. The circumstances and real history that happened are tragic. But the metaphors and lessons learned are beautiful and long lasting. Be prepared for triggers of racism, abuse, and mental health issues.
Add The Island at the End of Everything to your shelves for a story of love, forgiveness and beauty.
Book review ✨✨✨The Ninth House
(Galaxy) Alex Stern is not a normal girl. She can see the Greys in the world. When she's approached by Lethe House in New Haven to become a student and thus help them keep bad magic at bay. When her mentor goes missing though her world is turned upside down and she has to decide whom she is really going to be and what part she was going to play in it.
I only gave this a 4 star because it took me a bit to get into it. It's a rich story but also has some triggering things like abuse, drug use and language. Once the story picked up for me I was hooked and I am excited for there to be a sequel to come in the future!
Book review ✨✨✨ The Throne of Glass series
We follow Celeana Sardothein in her journey to figure out who she is and what her destiny really is in the world. Her story is all encompassing and deals with trauma, grief, loss, love, healing, and beauty in the good in the world. The spice level is about 🔥🔥🔥/5
This series Is my favorite of Sarah J Maas. Reading the 8 books changed my life for the better. It's the perfect series for fantasy fans. The relationships are explored in such a beautiful way that promotes healthy boundaries and trust and it just made me so happy!
