SnoopyDoo's Book Reviews

I’m a stay at home mom of two little monsters….  Ummm kids and I love to read and coffee runs through my veins . I read pretty much a little of everything but I tend to like fantasy the most. I blame Sarah J Maas who got me stated into the fantasy genre...but to be honest I read most of everything and it just depends what I’m in the mood for. I also read a lot of YA. Don’t judge ….lol

When I’m not reading I love to spend time with the family of course, I also like to watch TV and love to find new shows to binge. Gaming is another thing I like to do and is easy to get me sucked into a game for hours or even days.  Don’t even get me started on Lego games ……addictive …..lol

So as you can see I’m like all over the place but reading is always the thing that I come back to. It helps me relax and lets me jumps on so many new exciting worlds.

I love to meet new people who share the love for book as I do and in my many years of reading and reviewing I met some truly awesome people. Which honestly is the best part about the book word…..meeting so many new and lovely people.

I’m not in any way a professional reviewer. I just like to read books and share my personal opinion with other book lovers.

Mistborn - Brandon Sanderson

Syno 

 

 

Following on the heels of Sanderson’s successful launch into the YA market with the New York Times bestselling Rithmatist comes Mistborn, now repackaged for the teen audience Once, a hero rose to save the world. He failed. For a thousand years since, the world has been a wasteland of ash and mist ruled by the immortal emperor known as the Lord Ruler. Every revolt has failed miserably. Yet somehow, hope survives. Hope that dares to dream of ending the empire and defeating the Lord Ruler. A new kind of uprising is being planned—one that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the determination of an unlikely heroine: a teenage street urchin named Vin. Once, a hero rose to save the world and failed. This time, can a young heroine succeed?

 

 

My Thoughts

 

OMG. This book was freaking fantastic. I loved every minute of it and even though it was a long book. I didn’t want it to end. The beginning while great also was a bit rocky, because we get a lot of info dumping but even with that I still enjoyed it, the info dumping was done right so it didn’t feel so overwhelming and boring. We do get multiple POV throughput the book, but mainly Vin. Speaking of Vin she was my favorite and I liked that she grew so much throughout the book, but in a manner that it seemed realistic, she learned and grew a lot but still made mistakes and had her doubts. She never gave up in believing in people, which made her also vulnerable. I also loved Kelsier, even though there were moments I wasn’t sure if we can trust him or not. Sazed was another one I loved and a great mystery about him. I think even after this first book that there is much more to him as we are lead to believe. Elend was another one I loved way too much, we never know if he is on the bad site or not till the end and that made it so much more interesting. I loved the magic system in this world and I never had one like this before. It was different (for me) and took a bit to understand but I really enjoyed it. The story is fast paced and never gets boring and has many surprises on the way. We get a little of everything, action, magic, humor and even romance a bit , but also betrayal and heartbreak come a long. I did shed a few tears throughout some because I laughed too hard others not so much. I’m utterly in love with this series and its characters and I cannot wait to get to book two. I did listen to the audio book and it was fantastic and greatly narrated, I highly recommend this book and the audio if you like fantasy. I rate it a full 5★

Review: King of Scars (Nikolai Duology #1) by Leigh Bardugo

King of Scars - Leigh Bardugo

Syno

 

 

Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army. Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.

 

 

 

My Thoughts

 

 

It has been almost a week since I finished this book and I’m still not over it. I loved this book, and everything about it. Once think I should say is that you should most definitely read at least The Bone and Shadow trilogy first, as well as the Six of Crows Books. Six of crows is maybe not necessary but will most definitely help to understand and know the characters. This books starts off a few months after the event in the last Bone and Shadow book, and a lot has happened since then. We see a mix of characters from Bone and Shadow as well Six of Crows. I thought it was a great blend of characters and they worked well together. The group is split into basically three mini groups and all work on different missions but the same goal, we again get multiple POVs which makes it so much more fun to read and follow our friends. The friendship and characters were always one of my favorite parts of the grisha-verse and that is not any different here. It is fast paced and we never get a minute if rest. The book is also chockfull of twist and turns. Overall, I think this book was my favorite book in the grisha-verse yet, even with that horrible, horrible cliffhanger. I rate it full 5★ and can’t wait for the next book to be released.
