Competence is the third book in the Custard Protocol series by Gail Carriger. I am in love with this series! With a big L.
I love Gail Carriger’s witty and funny writing. This book, as well as the previous two, is full of adventure and breaks for tea. I found it delightful from the beginning to the end. This book focuses on the siblings Primrose and Percy and I find it to be a smooth transition from Rue as the main character. I really enjoy getting to know and understand Percy and his peculiar ways. And I did love Prim and her love interests in this book! All in all, a great book!
Red is the color of love. And death. Rebellion is coming.
Cheryl Low did it again. This series has it all, decadence, drugs, magic, plotting, pastries, fashion and rebellion! I loved this book as well as the first book. I can easily say it is my favorite fantasy series.
This book takes place a couple of years after the first one. Things have changed, but some things have not. It’s fun to revisit the Realm again and see and take part in all the new things and intrigues. This book picked up the pace and I feel like it was even better than the first one. Maybe because the characters aren’t new to us and instead we get to see the development. I loved AviSariel and Fay in this book! Strong, feisty women with a flair for fashion. I do love how this series isn’t constricted by fantasy “rules”. We do have amazing gowns and such, but there is also a modern twist to this series and the fashion in it. I love it!
Other than fashion, this book has a great story and development. I literally could not put it down because I needed to know what would happen next. I won’t spoil anything, but if you like drama, fantasy and intrigues you’ll like this series!
Here is a quote by Publisher’s Weekly
“This lush fantasy stays ferociously readable while offering a world that’s easy to love: unhappy people waking up to realize there’s more to life, and greeting it with curious wonder. This belle epoque–flavored series will appeal to readers who like their fantasy politics splashed with hope.”
I knew I wanted to read The Continuum by Wendy Nikel as soon as I read the blurb. It did not disappoint!
“Elise Morley is an expert on the past who’s about to get a crash course in the future.”
I have read a few books where someone travels in time or places but none quite like this one. I fully enjoyed the time traveling concept and as a reader you were thrust into the story immediately. It’s not a brick of a book but I find it to be well written and making me want for more when it is over! This book has not only a great concept of time travel but also a very exciting story and a fantastic ending!
Luckily there is a sequel called “The Grandmother Paradox”.
I don’t want to say too much about this book because I don’t want to perhaps spoil something from book one. Just know there is a second book and I’m looking forward to a possible third book!
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.
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.
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
This was a fun book. I listened to the audiobook and I was very pleased with the voice actor as well. This book reminded me of Prudence by Gail Carriger, though this one had less steampunk and supernatural creatures. It had all the adventures and nice clothes though!
