The Folk of the Air Book Tag

As I was perusing the reader page on wordpress I came across the Folk of the Air tag on Xandra at Starry Sky Books Blog.

I waited until after I had finally read ‘Queen of Nothing’ the conclusion to the Folk of the Air Trilogy to complete this tag and YAY, I’ve finally read it and feel like I can now answer these questions.

Celana Sardothian from the ‘Throne of Glass’ Series hands down!

personally, I would say Jorgen Weight from ‘Skyward’ by Brandon Sanderson. I did not like him one bit at the beginning of the story.

Again ‘Skyward’ by Brandon Sanderson. I honestly was not expecting the twist that we got and I cannot wait to pick up the next book.

Currently Tam from the ‘Keeper of Lost Cities’ Series. Where things left off I definitely feel deceived by Tam, but maybe I’ll be deceived a second time, who knows.

The one that comes to mind straight away is ‘Heir of Fire’ by Sarah J. Maas in the Throne of Glass series.

Angus Delaney, from ‘Chasing River’ by K.A.Tucker. I mean he is kind of key in our two characters meeting but he just makes me so mad that we could really do without him.

Matt from ‘This is Where it Ends’ by Marieke Nijkamp. Honestly throughout the whole story I wanted to just protect him and honestly just so many emotions.

Victoria from the Twilight Saga. She is one determined Character who does not stop. She just keeps going trying to get what she wants.

These are all books that I really know very little about but they are all books that I really want to get to it.

Skyward, Skyward, Skyward!

‘Exile’ by Shannon Messenger, the second book in the ‘Keeper of Lost Cities’ series. I enjoyed keeper of Lost Cities because it’s a killer series and the first book introduces everything. ‘Exile’ just adds so many more layers to the world and I love it.

The folk of the Air series. simple as that.

He will be destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne.

Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.

Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.

Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics.

And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity…

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, comes the highly anticipated and jaw-dropping finale to The Folk of the Air trilogy.

‘Queen of Nothing’ was the final book in the folk of the air trilogy. This was a book that I hav been looking forward to at the end of ‘Wicked King’ – The second book in the series – we were left with a shifted world, particularly for Jude, our protagonist. I was in such anticipation of how this was all going to be wrapped up and ‘Queen of Nothing’ delivered.

When it comes to Fae stories I am a huge fan of how Sarah J. Maas portrays them. ‘The Cruel Prince’ was my first experience reading Holly Black’s portrayal and I found that I was enjoying the way they were written and saw a lot of what I had read previously in her writing. ‘Queen of Nothing’ stayed true and consistent to the characters we meet in ‘Cruel Prince’ witch great growth and development.

Both Jude and Cardan show a great amount of growth from our first encounter with them. Their growth was fluid for readers – something I find very important when engaging in a story – making us want to see them succeed. They way that every was tied together and wrapped up in our final book was something that I think was done well with the limited pages we got (300 is just not enough!)

Overall, if you enjoy reading fae stories the Folk of the Air series is one that you will enjoy. Throughout the three stories we see how typical fae characters interact with humans who have known the fae world for a very long time. It’s a story that will keep you engaged and hopeful for the characters.

Review: ‘The Iron Trial’ By Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

The Iron Trial

By Cassandra Clare and Holly Black

Genre:  Fantasy

All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic. To succeed at the Iron Trial and be admitted into the vaunted Magisterium school would bring bad things. But he fails at failing. Only hard work, loyal friends, danger, and a puppy await.

I picked up ‘The Iron Trial’ By Cassandra Clare and Holly Black after seeing it around BookTube. I knew of both the authors and had read ‘The Wicked King’ and ‘The Cruel Prince’ By Holly Black and every person who has ever walked into a bookstore knows who Cassandra Clare is. Why not pick up a collaboration work between the two authors?

The Iron Trial follows Call as he attempts to flunk the entrance tests that will get him a spot at the Magesterium – a school for magic – his father only tells him that the school is a bad place and that it isn’t somewhere he wants to go. After ending up at the Magesterium anyway Call learn more than what his father told him and this world of magic holds both good and bad things for Call’s future.

I found Call a character that could be easily influenced. His thoughts tended to follow after only what he’d been told and he was very slow to question those things. He was also someone that wasn’t really likeable to begin with. I mean I was rooting for him to make friends and learn how to accept himself but his responses to others often bordered on the negative. There was definitely development and growth throughout the story which was fluid and really mirrored Call’s confident growing throughout the story.

My thoughts on Call were most definitely influenced by my feeling that the plot was slow. At different points throughout the story I was struggling to stay engaged. The beginning of the book really captured my attention and when I was near the end of the book I wanted to know what was going to happen.

Overall I want to continue with this series. It is one that has now captured my attention and I want to see where the authors take Call and his friends next.

Weekly Update: 24.6.19

The end of the term has come and gone and the holidays are here! I’m jumping on a plane tonight and heading to Europe… What?! I am so excited to be headed somewhere warm so I can read by the pool and jut live my best life.

This week was very busy. I got sick so wasn’t working out at all and went to bed super early, but we also had our school production of ‘Wind in the Willows’ which was adapted by our performing arts teacher who also wrote all the music! He is crazy talented and the girls did a spectacular job pulling it all off!

On to what I know everyone is here for… what did I read this week?

I am so happy that I finally finished ‘The Iron Trial’ By Holly Black and Cassandra Clare as well as finishing ‘Sky in the Deep’ By Adrienne Young! So definitely still a productive week even if all the health and fitness stuff kinda went pear shaped!

I also started some new reads!

I am about 50 pages into ‘A Darker Shade of Magic’ By V.E. Schwab. I’ve also started ‘Norse Mythology’ By Neil Gaiman. I am really excited to be onto these books!

Weekly Update: 27.5.19

What a crazy week it has been! Work has been crazy hectic as well as a jam packed weekend full of wedding and travel related activities, I am genuinely exhausted, and its only Monday!

I finally finished reading ‘Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer’ By Rick Riordan.

I love mythology so it really didn’t take long for me to get through this read.

Hopefully I can get to the sequel soon.

This week I am reading two middle grade books, I’ve picked up ‘Everblaze’ by Shannon Messenger, the third book in the Keeper of Lost Cities series. I am about 120 pages in and really hope to finish it this week. I have also picked up ‘The Iron Trial’ By Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. I am currently listening to this on the Borrow Box app after borrowing it from my local library.

What has your week been like?

Weekly Update: 26.2.19

This week I did end up finishing ‘The Wicked King’ By Holly Black.

I definitely really enjoyed this book.

The review for which should be up soon!

I am currently around 200 pages into ‘Keeper of the Lost Cities’ By Shannon Messenger.

I plan to finish this book before the end of the month.

We are mostly moved in now which is amazing. We only have storage stuff left to move! Cannot wait til we are all done. We also also getting super close to my Baptism, with only 2 more classes before the big day.

I am also about to partake in the O.W.L.S readathon in April which is super exciting. There will be a full update about this coming soon!

How has your reading week gone?

TBR: March 2019

March is here and I am ready to read. We are moving at the start of the month but I am hoping that it doesn’t impede on my reading too much.

So I’ve decided for March to move out of my consistent reading of the Throne of Glass series. I am definitely going to keep working my way through the series because I am absolutely loving it. But they are dense books and I want to try and get some other reading done. So I am going to begin the month with what I hope is a quick read with ‘In an Absent Dream’ By Seanan McGuire, the 4th book in the Wayward Children series.

I then plan to jump into ‘The Lost Sister’ By Holly Black a novella in the Cruel Prince series, before I read the 2nd book in the series ‘The Wicked King’ By Holly Black. This is one I’ve been looking forward to picking up so I’m going to prioritise it this month.

Next I want to get to ‘The Similars’ By Rebecca Hanover. I love the concept of this book and it was one that I needed to have when it was released, so I’m feeling pretty bad that I haven’t got to it yet. This month will be the month.

Lastly I want to pick up (and hopefully finish, but who am I kidding) ‘Queen of Shadows’ By Sarah J. Maas. The 4th book in the Throne of Glass series. I am so excited to keep going with this series, because honestly I have been absolutely loving them.

This is definitely one of my most ambitious TBRs that I’ve set. It doesn’t seem like a lot but I really don’t get as much time to read as I would like with a full time job and we are moving next week which means we will be even busier than normal!

I’m just going to stay hopeful that I can kill the reading game this month anyway!

What’s on your TBR this month?

Hardcover

A contemporary adventure based on Maya mythology from Rick Riordan Presents!
Zane has always enjoyed exploring the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico, even though hiking it is challenging.

What Zane doesn’t know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he’s destined to release an evil god from the ancient Maya relic he is imprisoned in–unless she can find and remove it first. Together they return to the volcano, where all kinds of crazy happens. Brooks turns into a hawk, a demon attacks them in a cave, and Rosie gives her all while trying to protect Zane. When Zane decides to save his dog no matter the cost, he is thrust into an adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods, one of whom happens to be his father. To survive, Zane will have to become the Storm Runner. But how can he run when he can’t even walk well without a cane?
