Akata Warrior Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

Akata Warrior Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

  REVIEW:  Akata Warrior by Nnedi Okorafor is a fabulous sequel to Akata Wich. Sunny Nwazue is a bit older and more grown up. Okorafor brings a bit of a more dreamy and broaden world in Akata Warrior. This sequel focuses a lot more on Sunny discovering who she is as a Leopard Person and what that really means. She learns how to rely on herself and not just the powers taht she is given. I really enjoyed the continued growth that Sunny shows and the different things that she learns about herself. This book does not bring a lot […]

Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melisaa Bashardoust is magical and addictive. I really enjoyed this loose retelling of Snow White. Bashardoust brings us two strong female characters that share their story. I loved that this book has two points of view. I really fell for both Mina and Lynet. Let’s talk about the characters! The Men: I will be brief. They are terrible. The Huntsman is probably the nicest one but well he is not idea. In more ways than one. The King is so infuriating. He is selfish, oblivious, mean, and well stupid. He makes such a […]

Now I Rise Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

Review: Now I Rise by Kiesten White is phenomenal. This retelling of Vlad the Impaler as Lada is amazing. I love how Lada is just like Vlad in being mean and blood thirsty. She is nto going to let anyone or anything get in the way of her claiming her kingdom. White does an amazing job bringing this fierce and determined woman that wants to conquer the world wit blood and making the reader feel sympathy for her. Now I Rise is told in two stories. One from Lada’s point of view while she is trying to reclaim her birthright, […]

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon is amazing. I love Dimple and Rishi’s story. These two characters fit together so well. Dimple is headstrong and determined. She has a one track mind to win Insomnia Con. Her plans are derailed when Rishi shows up declaring her as his future wife. Rishi is under the expectation that Dimple knows that he is coming to Insomnia Con. to meet him. Dimple knows no such thing. This begins a whirlwind of events that brought so much joy to my life. I really enjoyed Dimple and Rishi and all of their interactions. Menon […]

The Gold-Son by Carrie Anne Noble is charming and delightful. The Gold-Son reads a lot like a fiary tale story with a bit of a modern twist. This story has a great folk lore presence. I enjoyed the characters a lot. Tommin Kelly is always wanting to steal things. He doesn’t understand why. If only he knew his heritage. IT is hard when you don’t know the truth about who you are and where you come from. This is what Tommin had to deal with all the time. Carrie Anne Noble brings a beautiful story to her readers. As a […]

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord is amazing. Lucy is such a strong character. I feel like Lucy’s struggle is something many people can relate too. Lucy is struggling with her faith and why God would allow her mom’s cancer to come back. Lucy’s mom asks her to be a counselor at a camp for troubled teens rather than going to normal church camp. The struggle Lucy is going through is one many can relate too and I really enjoyed her self discovery. This story is about finding out who you are and where you belong. I enjoyed […]


Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas
Posted April 6, 2017 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas is amazing. I was so excited to read this book and it definitely lived up to this expectation. This story started out super strong. Freya is a scientist. She is on the lowest totem pole to become the next ruler. I love that the fantasy part of the book was also mixed with a murder mystery. This story was extremely enjoyable. Freya despises the wastefulness of court life. She would rather keep to herself and her science, because of this Freya ends up being spared by accident. For the King’s birthday celebration there […]
