Persuasion (Curse of the Gods, #2)My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is: just as good as the first one.

The plot is: hilarious.
The beginning is: perfect.
The middle is: just right.
The crescendo is: oh, oh.
The finish/ending is: heartbreaking and great at the same time.

??? I can’t put my finger on what makes these books so good… maybe the humour…?! I don’t know, because there is nothing really special that stands out. There is something, though, because I can’t get enough of these books. Maybe you could clue me in when/if you read/have read the book(s).

Would I recommend this book? Yes/no? Why/why not? Yes, because if you’ve read the first instalment, you’ll want to read the rest of the books in the series as well.

Trickery (Curse of the Gods, #1)My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is: weird, but in a great way. It took me a long, long time to start reading this book because I wasn’t sure it was really my cup of tea. I finally gave it a shot, though, and I was pleasantly surprised.

The plot is: hilarious. I thought I would be annoyed by the main character’s clumpsy and idiotic behaviour, but I find myself enjoying, and laughing about it instead. I would actually award this book 4.5 stars, but since I can’t, I’m giving this book 5 stars instead of only 4.

The beginning is: a bit boring and confusing.
The middle is: intriguing and hilarious.
The crescendo is: a bit rushed, but still good.
The finish/ending is: promising.

The characters are: “in development”. They are nice, but they need polish and depth.
The worldbuilding is: OK.
The language is: interesting. You’ll come across expression like “give me a click” and other expressions of time (and other things) in the book.

Would I recommend this book? Yes/no? Why/why not? Yes, it’s a great start to a, surprisingly, great new series.

King Cave (Forever Evermore, #2)My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is: amazing!

The plot is: awesome, heartbreaking, humorous and filled with love. Some might feel there is too much sex going on in the book and not enough storyline, but I disagree. OK, perhaps not entierly. The first time I read this book (this is like the fifth time I’ve read it) I thought there was too much sex and not much else occurring, but the more I think about it, and the more times I’ve read the book, I just love it and the humour surrounding it all.

The beginning is: heartbreaking and sad.
The middle is: filled with sex and humour… and heartbreak.
The crescendo is: heartbreaking and powerful.
The finish/ending is: heart-wrenching. Yes, there is a lot of heartache going on in this book, but so worth it!

The characters are: amazing! The main characters are still young, but they are growing up.
Would I recommend this book? Yes/no? Why/why not? Yes, I would definitely recommend this book because it is an awesome continuation of the first instalment in the Forever Evermore saga.

King Hall (Forever Evermore, #1)My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is: phenomenal! Can’t wait to read the following books.

The plot is: unlike anything I’ve ever read before.

The beginning is: amazing!
The middle is: filled with humour and awesomeness!
The crescendo is: awful but in a great way. (Don’t worry if that makes no sense šŸ˜‰ Read the book and you’ll understand).
The finish/ending is: “cliffhanger-ish”. Luckily, the following books are already published and available for purchase.

The characters are: very lovable and great. The main characters are excellent and you want to be a part of their group/be their friend.
The worldbuilding is: just right.
The language is: perfect for this type of book/genre/audience.

Would I recommend this book? Yes/no? Why/why not? Absolutely! It is an amazing book, one of my favs!

Bred by the Billionaire (Breeding Season Book 1)My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book is: …OK-ish? It is not terrible, but it is far from great. It’s a book you can read if you don’t want to read something intricate or just want something to do to pass the time.

The plot is: repetitive and quite boring. The title is also (in my opinion) a bit crude for a story that is a bit more romantic than the title lets on.
The beginning is: intriguing.
The middle is: boring.
The crescendo is: … is there even one? Nothing really happens in the book.
The finish/ending is: rushed. I want more. I want a longer and more in-depth epilogue.

The characters are: boring.
The worldbuilding is: … I don’t know. Since one of the main characters is an architect in the making, I would have thought there would be some depth to the worldbuilding, but no.

Would I recommend this book? Yes/no? Why/why not? No, there are so many better books out there to read instead of this book.

Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin, #1)My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG! I love this book. It had me ensnared from the beginning until the end.

At first though, I was a bit sceptic; was “Gin”, the protagonist insane… out of her mind? but then everything made sense and I was irreversibly hooked!

The plot is amazing, the beginning (after that first hiccup) incredibly good, the middle perfect, the crescendo breathtaking and the ending unbelievably good!

The characters are dynamic, the use of language great, the world-building excellent and the themes are spectacular!

I highly recommend reading this book. It’s excellent!

Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle, #1)My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this book and I’ll without a doubt read it again soon!

This book, along with book two (Eldest) was given to me as a Christmas present by my mum. She knows I love books so she gave me these two amazing books.

When I began reading this book I was hooked right from the start, although, it is a bit slow from the get go.

All the intricacies throughout this book, the dynamic characters, the outstanding and many layered magical world that Paolini has created, the excellent use of languages, and themes both classical yet modern is why this book is given 5 out of 5 stars.

It’s a great piece of literature and I’m so happy that my mum introduced me to Eragon/The Inheritance Cycle.

Highly recommended to young adults and adults alike!

Breed of Havoc (The Breed Chronicles, #3)My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was: unbelievably good! Loved everything!
The plot was: crazy, in an awesome kind of way.

The beginning was: maybe a bit slow… but not so much that I minded it.
The middle was: super!
The crescendo was: freaking amazing.
The finish/ending was: wow… I’m not sure if my nerves are all fried or if some nerves managed to live through that crescendo and ending.

Would I recommend this book? Yes/no? Why/why not? Yes!!! God I want, no need the fourth book now; and I mean pronto! Though that’s not going to happen, since the fourth book hasn’t been released yet… and I don’t even have a date for when it does! šŸ˜¦ .

Breed of Envy (The Breed Chronicles, #02)My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was: just as great as the first one… if not more so.

The plot: (pardon me saying so, but…) ‘The plot thickens’. Everything just seems to war with it-selves and others, while at the same time everything just seems to be the same as always. It’s okay if that doesn’t make sense, because it barely does to me either, and I just wrote it!

The beginning was: good.
The middle was: great.
The crescendo was: really good.
The finish/ending was: confusing, yet so very, very intriguing that I continued with the third book just minutes after finishing this one.

The language was: so much better in this book than that of many other book I’ve read in the same genre (excluding the first book in this series).

Would I recommend this book? Yes/no? Why/why not? Yes, without a doubt. However, depending on whom I’m ‘supposedly’ recommending a book to, I might choose a different book that better suits him/her.
