Water's Wrath (Air Awakens #4)
03, Sep

Rating: 5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Magic, Romance

“He was a reckless fool, and I was a girl pulled along by puppet strings. The fire burned too hot, and we didn't notice until it consumed everything.”

I am not lost for words often. I tend to babble and gush over the things I like and love until my mouth dries and my voice falters. But talking about Water's Wrath, talking about the book that eradicated my ability to think or dream about anything besides it feels way too personal. Like exposing my bare soul. But I will do it. Because you, yes you who are reading these words and wonder how is it possible to love so fiercely people who exist only in the realms of fiction, need to understand this: Elise Kova created another work of art.

Rating: 5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance

Marie Rutkoski isn't an ordinary author.

She's an artist.

“Later, Kestrel wished she had spoken then, that no time had been lost. She wished that she’d had the courage that very moment to tell Arin what she’d finally known to be true: that she loved him with the whole of her heart.”

Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms, #3)
19, Aug

Rating: 5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, High Fantasy, Magic, Romance

“Believe in magic. Believe in the impossible.”

I do believe in magic. I do believe in the impossible. I believe in acts of courage and kindness even when is seems a lost cause, I believe in the knight in shining armor (whoever that legendary rescuer might be, even myself), I believe that no matter what the good will prevail, and thanks to Gathering Darkness, I believe that even the most hideous actions, the most desperate and lost heroes can be redeemed.

Rebel Spring (Falling Kingdoms #2)
19, Aug

Rating: 5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, High Fantasy, Magic, Romance

Do you know the feeling when after finishing a good book, it takes some time and considerable effort to adapt to reality again, to make sense of your surroundings and comprehend the sentences that form in the lips of the people around you? When your mind is clouded and refuses to operate and the only thing that matters is to go back in this book, go back where your soul lies?

Rebel Spring is one of those books. After I finished it, I could hear people moving and talking, I recognized the need to study, but I just didn't care. Because it was that good.

Frozen Tides (Falling Kingdoms, #4)
19, Aug

Rating: 5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, High Fantasy, Magic, Romance

“All magic comes with a price. A price that is never revealed until after the damage has been done.”

Once Upon A Time anyone?

I don't know what's the price Morgan Rhodes has to pay for her magic and shamelessly, I don't care. Because no price will ever be enough for such a mind-blowing, engrossing book as Frozen Tides.

I am strong I will not fall apart I am strong I will not fall apart I am strong I will not fall apart I am strong I will not fall apart I am strong I will not fall apart I am strong I will not fall apart I am strong I will not fall apart I am strong I will not fall apart

I am weak. I fell apart. I am trapped inside a bubble of denial, shock, sorrow and pain. And hope. Hope that Earth's End will glue the pieces of my shattered heart.
