Hello Everyone! Welcome back to my monthly wrap up post! I hope you’re all doing well and being safe. This month I’ve done some above average reading, and also watched few K-dramas because I had a small bookslump. I’ve been AWOL for almost the whole month of April but I’m planning to stay more active in May.
NO.OF BOOKS READ: 07
TITLE: Bone Crier's Dawn (Bone Grace #2) AUTHOR: Kathryn Purdie GENRE: YOUNG-ADULT, FANTASY, MAGIC. PUBLICATION DATE: March 30th 2021 "This was overall a good conclusion to the story but not the best. I liked it but I wish we had more Sabine and Prince Casimir together."
TITLE: The Moonfire Bride (Of Candlelight and Shadows #1) AUTHOR: Sylvia Mercedes GENRE: YOUNG-ADULT,FANTASY,ROMANCE, RETELLINGS. PUBLICATION DATE: March 6th 2021 "Psyche and Eros meets Hades and Persephone in this enchanting tale about a human girl stolen to be the bride of a doomed fae lord. It's a story filled with mystery, romance, and magic. I really loved it! "
TITLE: Fly with the Arrow (Bluebeard's Secret #1) AUTHOR: Sarah K.L. Wilson GENRE: YOUNG-ADULT, GOTHIC, FANTASY,MYSTERY. PUBLICATION DATE: March 2nd 2021 "There's not many bluebeard retellings and this is definitely one of the books that you must check out if you're into fairy tale retellings. It's totally worth a read!"
TITLE: Of Shadows and Elves(Of Goblins Kings #2) AUTHOR: Emma Hamm GENRE: YOUNG-ADULT, FANTASY, RETELLINGS. PUBLICATION DATE: March 15th 2021 " I enjoyed this sequel but not as much as the first one. Overall, it was a nice retelling of the original tale."
TITLE: The Bright & the Pale (The Bright & the Pale Duology #1) AUTHOR: Jessica Rubinkowski GENRE: YOUNG-ADULT, FANTASY, MYTHOLOGY. PUBLICATION DATE: March 2nd 2021 " This was okay-ish but It could've been great. The story has great potential but some of the aspects fell flat for me. There's no chemistry between the main characters and the secondary characters were kinda dull"
TITLE: The Prison Healer (The Prison Healer #1) AUTHORS: Lynette Noni GENRE: YOUNG-ADULT, FANTASY, MAGIC. PUBLICATION DATE: April 13th 2021 "When I first read the blurb of this book, I thought that I would love it, but sadly I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped. From the second half the story became predictable for me and the deadly trials in the book were a total disappointment. They're not challenging enough!"
TITLE: A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire(Blood and Ash #2) AUTHORS: Jennifer L. Armentrout GENRE: NEW-ADULT, FANTASY, FAE, ROMANCE. PUBLICATION DATE: September 1st 2020 "Sorry guys, I tried hard to love this book but it didn't work out for me. There's actually no plot in this book and it was freaking 600+ pages long. I was annoyed with the constant bickering between the main leads who're reluctant to admit their feelings for each other till the end and not to forget there's too many repeated sentences especially the stabbing part. The only best part about this book was Kieran"

Fly with the Arrow(Bluebeard’s Secret #1)
BY SARAH K.L. WILSON
I highly recommend this book if you’re looking for a good Bluebeard retelling!!!
BLURB: A STOLEN BRIDE. A TERRIFYING BRIDEGROOM. THE GAME THAT WILL DETERMINE THEIR FATES.
No one told her the most important law of the court – the Law of Greeting.
If they had, maybe she wouldn’t have greeted Bluebeard when he arrived to claim a mortal wife. And if she hadn’t greeted him, she wouldn’t have become his sixteenth wife or been swept away to the lands of the Wittenhame.
But if none of that had happened, then she wouldn’t have been an integral part of the game that takes place every two hundred years – a game that determines the fates of nations .
For not all is as it seems, not in her homeland of Pensmoore, not in the Wittenhame, and certainly not in her new marriage.
