The Wicked King, Second book to The Cruel Prince! If you didn’t get a chance to read my book review for The Cruel Prince click HERE

SPOILER FREE!

The Wicked King was my top three anticipating books of 2019. Let me just say I believe Holly Black knows what she is doing with this story and she has not let me down and more than likely she won’t when she ends this story.

When I started to read the first pages I was having a hard time getting into the story and where we are now in the story. I was getting a little confused with so many characters. The beginning of the book was okay but everything started to pick up for me towards the very end of the story, which is kinda a bummer for me since the first book hooked me the moment I started to read.

Once the action started to flow in I was hooked and couldn’t put the book down. I have a lot of feelings for some characters in this book and what are they planning and motives. I was surprised to see some characters backstab Jude and confused in a good way as to why they are doing it to where I need answers.

The ending was everything, just like the first book! It didn’t fail me! I love the ending more than anything and it was the best part of the book. I had to flip back pages to read it again, it was that good!

The writing, of course, is wonderful and very detailed for me to feel like I was apart of the world that Holly Black has created. The first book was definitely my favorite so far but the second one is not bad at all. I am looking forward to the final book “Queen Of Nothing” to see what happens with Jude and the other characters in the story and unfortunately, I have to wait another whole year just to find out.

Ready to walk with Jude to the Fey world?

Top Ten Tuesday: Things I’ve Done For The Love Of Books

TTT-NEW

Hosted By That Artsy Reader Girl

I have not had the opportunity to do something crazy for the love of books however what I have done are just minor things. Perhaps in the future like if Marissa Meyer was visiting my city I would do just anything to go meet her and sign my books even if that means going at the last minute in my pajamas. Here are just a few things I have done for the love of all books.

VIVICA A. FOX BOOK SIGNING AT BARNES AND NOBLE

I love Autobiography books second favorite genre in books I also love Kill Bill the movie so once I found out that Vivica was going to be doing a book signing for her new book I was all in. Not only was her book inspiring I knew I had to go but one thing the signing was all the way on the other side of the city ( No big deal really) just means to get up early to make sure I’m ready to go also I don’t have my drivers license..yet! So that means my Aunt Nicky was going to take me since my boyfriend is not all about books and this is a must thing to do! To make the story short I was stressed out, leaving the house to forget the book to have to turn around to get it. traffic was insane. My aunt who is not from Las Vegas who moved from Michigan to live out here got us lost and didn’t listen to my instructions to get to the book store. Let’s just say once I got there I was just not in the best mood but I made it and it was worth all the stress.

STOLE A BOOK

You read that right but don’t freak out just yet and let me explain my story! Let me take you back to the 90’s when I was just six years old. This was my first time and very last time I have ever stolen anything in my life (Unless it was the last donut in the house) My mother and I went to a store to do some shopping. I was wondering around close to my mom while she was looking at some clothes but I found this little book called “The Art Of The Lion King” I hid the book from my mom and when we left the store and got in the car I was in the back seat looking at the book. My mother looked back and question me and I never heard the end of it where she went right back to the store and made me walk up to the store employee to return the book and apologize for stealing. Never again! I was so embarrassed. Many years later when I was in Michigan I was in a book thrift store and I found the same book which of course this time around I bought the book and still have it today to remind me of this lesson.

I have other things I do for the love of books which is missing out on my favorite show to read or sometimes eat dinner later at night so I can continue to read, read in the bathtub or take my book everywhere with me and when I was working for customer service I was reading my book the whole time while I was supposed to be assisting people on the phone and I was half listening (That’s if the book is really really good! That’s how I got thru Six Of Crows and Children Of Blood And Bone so fast I didn’t care to lose my job) Maybe some of the things are minor however I love books more than anything and would do just about anything to read or get my hands on the book or meet an author of the book.

I’m actually really curious, have any of you book lovers done anything crazy for the love of books?

I Should Have Read That Book Tag

book

Found this awesome Book Tag on Read With Abi

I have not done a Book Tag this whole year and been waiting for the right time to do so. I’m not going to waste any more time and just get right to it.

A BOOK THAT A FRIEND IS ALWAYS TELLING YOU TO READ

Unfortunately, I don’t have one single friend that reads. I’m that friend that recommends books but they never listen to me and rather play video games.

A BOOK THAT’S BEEN ON YOUR TBR FOREVER, YET YOU STILL HAVENT PICKED IT UP

51eaZ1mO9ML._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_

That would be this lovely gem! I really want to read Circe! It’s been on my TBR list for a very long time, I’ll get to it soon…very soon!

A BOOK IN A SERIES YOU STARTED BUT HAVENT GOTTEN ROUND TO FINISHING YET

fgfgg

That would be Warriors by Erin Hunter. I grew up reading these and unfortunately, I never finished the whole series plus I have to recollect the series on top of that too. I absolutely love these books to this very day and with all these other books coming out I tend to get distracted but I am determined to finish the series.

A CLASSIC YOU’VE ALWAYS LIKED THE SOUND OF, BUT NEVER ACTUALLY READ

To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee, a classic that seems everyone has read but me.

A POPULAR BOOK IT SEEMS EVERYONE BUT YOU HAS READ 

9780008179984

Nevernight By Jay Kristoff! I see this book everywhere! It’s always on Bookstagram and book reviews on book blogs. Looks interesting and I might get my hands on this to add it to my TBR list.

A BOOK THAT INSPIRED A FILM/TV ADAPTION THAT YOU LOVE BUT JUST HAVEN’T READ YET 

Harry Potter! That’s right I have never read Harry Potter but I love the movies. The thing is I am someone who has to read the book first then watch the movie. When the first movie came out my mother had taken me to see the movie and from there on I just watch the movies rather than read the books. I can’t really read the book if I already know what is going to happen or have some knowledge of the story, I like to be surprised and not knowing what’s going to happen because if a new book that I been wanting comes out then I’m going to end up putting the book down and never finished it…you know. So since I missed out on Harry Potter I made sure to read books first then movies!

A BOOK YOU SEE ALL OVER INSTAGRAM  BOOKSTAGRAM BUT HAVENT PICKED UP

Oh yeah, I see this book all over the place right now, it looks and sounds like my type of book. I almost purchased the book today at Target but decided to wait a bit longer.

Happy Reading all! Doing this Book Blog makes me want to read more and more. I feel like I am missing out on some good books here. Let me know what you all think and everyone who reads this is tagged.

Happy Reading!
