20adf4_df1db29699fc459a8480746d5e7c0908 Goodreads synopsis 20adf4_df1db29699fc459a8480746d5e7c0908

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, she wants to open a shop and create delectable pastries. But for her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for a woman who could be a queen.

At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the King’s marriage proposal, she meets handsome and mysterious Jest. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into a secret courtship.

Cath is determined to choose her own destiny. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

20adf4_df1db29699fc459a8480746d5e7c0908 My thoughts 20adf4_df1db29699fc459a8480746d5e7c0908

I love Alice in Wonderland so much and this book gave me the most epic and twisted story of the Queen of Hearts. I just can’t believe what’s happening to the Queen and I am so troubled how she become the cruel and evil Queen. But this story made me complete and I want to the author for bringing my childhood back even though the story is all about the Queen of Hearts.

 You all know the story and I’m just going through my feeling about this book so much. I really love how Marissa Meyer put the love story and the twist how she become the queen. I imagine the hardship she’s been through a lot of her travel and my heart melted with her feelings and love for what she’s doing before she’s been a queen. I gone mad with her decisions and I know it’s her choice, if I could just dive in to the book and tell her to leave all behind, she and Jest will live forever. Of course, forever and promises are like stones in this book but who knows that they’re going to be apart. Characters are well blended especially to Jest, the White Rabbit, Cheshire cat and Mad Hatter. I really love those characters and they’ve been part of this journey in my heart. My favorite is, of course, Jest, he’s so ready to give up everything for Cath and he knows what true love mean is and I just can’t believe what the author did to him. It’s really heart breaking, I will gone mad like Cath if I’m in her position too.

 Overall, so intense, so lovely but yet heartbreaking. I can’t stop thinking about Cath’s story and every time I see the book, it pains me more than ever. This is unforgettable read! I can’t say anymore and I don’t want to spoil everyone. I just love everything in this book and this is the very first book that I read from Marissa Meyer. I might read all her books after this wonderful retelling!

Synopsis:

Welcome, welcome to Caraval―Stephanie Garber’s sweeping tale of two sisters who escape their ruthless father when they enter the dangerous intrigue of a legendary game.

Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.

[Cover Reveal] A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

Hey everyone!

THIS IS IT! THIS IS EVERYONE BEEN WAITING FOR! SORRY FOR ALL UPPERCASE BECAUSE I’M SO HYPED AND I KNOW THIS SERIES IS WHAT EVERYONE BEEN TALKING ABOUT AND I’M STILL NOT READING IT! How ashamed I am 😦

I met Sarah J Maas back on January 2016 when she got her tour here in PH and she is really lovely person! Knowing that her book series is great, (according to my friends who are absolutely obsessed with TOG series), I haven’t try to read it yet. So I’m hoping that I could it within this year even though it has 6 books for TOG series and 3 books ACOTAR series!

Sorry for dilly dallying around but I know everyone knows this and everyone is pump up for this cover!

Goodreads Synopsis:

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

Two beautiful covers, one from US and one from UK! These are really great combination for the first two books ACOTAR and ACOMAF!

SEE?! Did you just see the color combination of each covers? (I usually prefer UK covers because they’re much lovely looking than US covers, SORRY FOR BEING BIAS :D) OMG! I should read this series pretty soon! I think I’m falling inlove with covers!! *screams*
