Hi! So i’ve recently started reading Foretold by Carrie Ryan. It’s basically a books where i think 12 different authors write a short story and the topic or theme is prophecy and predictions. Some of the authors include Matt de la Pena, Richelle Mead, Heather Brewer…and so on.
I also read Fairest by Marissa Meyer, which is a little book in Levana’s point of view. This is a companion to the Lunar Chronicles, and the last book Winter comes out in the Fall, and i am soooo excited for the conclusion!
Ok, let’s get down to business. The Heir by Kiera Cass. I love the Selection Series, the Selection was my favorite, and then The Elite, and then the One, and the Heir is my least favorite.
I feel that Kiera Cass does a great job of writing extremely flawed and frustrating female protagonists. I felt that i really just couldn’t connect to Princess Eadlyn, and i also felt that by the end of the book, she hadn’t connected to any of the Selected. I’m on Team Erik right now, but i don’t know how it will play out. I seriously don’t know who she’ll choose. With Maxon, you knew he’d choose America, I mean, hello? The One?
But it’s any of the boys’ games at this point. I also dislike how she’s basically using Kile as a distraction. Like for instance, ooh, i’m feeling sad, thinks Eadlyn, let me go make out with Kile to feel better. It’s basically like using sex to feel better, but not quite so drastic.
Also, how could Marlee, such a sweet girl, how did she have such a brat like Josie? But then, we only see her from Eadlyn’s point of view, so maybe Josie isn’t the brat in this scenario, but Eadlyn…
I enjoyed reading the Heir, i did, it just doesn’t get a 5, i’d give it a 3.5 maybe 4.
I’m really excited to read:
1. A court of thorns and roses by Sarah J. Maas
2. Winter by Marissa Meyer
3. The 4th Throne of Glass book, um, Queen of Shadows? By Sarah J. Maas
4. The third Red Rising book, something midnight, i think, by Pierce Brown
5. The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
6. November 9 by Colleen Hoover
7. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
Ok, that’s it for today, thanks for reading!
