Caraval av Stephanie Garber

Inget är vad det utger sig för att vara i den här boken. Caraval är verkligen underhållande och magisk. Den är lätt att läsa då det bara är en huvudkaraktär som vi följer. Scarlett får gå igenom många prövningar på bara några dagar och det är verkligen full fart hela tiden. Inget är som du tror, och är det verkligen bara ett spel?

Rekommenderar den här boken till äldre tonåringar och uppåt. Syskonskap, kärlek, död, svek och lögner!

Tack till B.Wahlströms för att jag fick en förhandskopia av boken att läsa och recensera.

Håll utkik i bokhyllorna, den släpps 28 december!

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas

I had been looking forward to this book for a long time. Unfortunately it didn’t live up to my expectations. It was not a bad book at all but it was so predictable and slow paced. Still, it was a good book and I am glad I read it.

Broken Moon by Sarah Beth Moore

I just read the new book Broken Moon by Sarah Beth Moore, also known as newleafwriter on instagram. She contacted me and asked if I would like to read and review her book, which I of course wanted.

I have read self published books before and some are better than others. I am glad to say that Sarah’s book belongs to the better ones. It is well written and it comes as no surprise to find out she works as a copywriter.

I really enjoyed this book and I read it in a couple of days. The world were Naiya lives is about to turn upside down and she and her step brothers have to fight to survive and at the same time figure out who Naiya really is and what really is going on in their city.

It is set in a future dystopian city with high technology and surveillance and guards. It is quite different to other books I’ve read but still fits well into the young adult fantasy genre

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley

 

I will be completely honest. I borrowed this book from the library only because of the pretty cover.

Blurb from the back:
“He lived his life like clockwork. Until he met the watchmaker.”

The story was very clever but for some reason the book just didn’t “speak” to me. It just didn’t hold my attention for long and so I think it took me a month to finish it. I would still recommend it though. I enjoyed the mystery and the concept a lot even though it took me some time to read it all. Natsasha Pulley has a new book coming out (or it might be released all ready) that I might read too.

Kretsen och Drömtjuvarna av Maggie Stiefwater

  

Jag hade sett dessa omslag länge och läst mycket gott om serien. När jag nu hittade den som eböcker på Storytel så kunde jag inte låta bli att prova läsa dem. Vid skrivande stund har jag precis påbörjat den tredje och sista boken.

Jag gillar konceptet som Maggie har tagit fram och hur det utvecklar sig under böcketnas gång. Dessa böcker var mycket bättre än jag trodde de skulle vara. Rekommenderas varmt!

When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

This was a cute, easy to read, romantic contemporary novel about two 18 year olds trying to find their way in life and love.

 

It was refreshing to read a book where the main cast is Indian American. I liked Rishi, such a gentleman! And I really liked Dimple. A non-perfect main character I got frustrated at sometimes.

I wished we would have gotten more interactions in class and more funny scenes in school though. Other than that it was a fun easy read.
