Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Goodreads summary: Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

I. LOVE.THIS.BOOK!!! After the first one I hurried and got my hands on this one. I went through all the emotions in this story!! It wasn't like the first one where most of the action took place towards the end and with the beginning of the trials for Feyre. It was good from the beginning and definitely all the way to the end. The end??? The end??? 

So first and foremost this is not a love triangle. I didn't really care for Tamlin at all so maybe this is just my judgement but even if I did like Tamlin it still did not feel like a love triangle. In fact, he isn't present through the majority of the book. 

Feyre has matured in so many ways from the first book to now. The trials that she went through for Tamlin killed the girl that she was. The woman that she is now can't be tamed and is fierce when pushed.  A part of me could understand Tamlin and his motives but the relationship between them was toxic. Feyre didn't need that type of mess in her life. She overcame so much and the coddling needed to stop. 

Rhysand is the awesome :)). I am at lost for words for how much I love him. He treated Feyre as his equal, didn't underestimate her , and truly understood her. He was exactly what she needed even though he felt that he didn't deserve her. When he was telling her his story my freaking insides were torn out and I might have shed a tear for him. He would do anything to protect the ones that he loves. Anything. 

The description of the courts were so beautiful. I just wish I could close my eyes and winnow there. The author can do some dang good writing. I need fan art asap. LOL

Although this is considered a Y.A. novel there is some detailed sexual content written. I didn't mind but for those of you who are on the fence about that kind of stuff you might want to know. Although, it didn't take from the story at all whatsoever and it added to the goodness level. 

When I finished reading it I was like "HOLY CRAP!" and my face must have been weird because my dad was looking at me like I had grown another head. Now I have to wait a whole year to get the next book. I...just...can't....

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter.

On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…
