Fire and Flood - Victoria Scott ( Fire and Flood #1)
Such an enjoyable read! It reminded me of The Hunger Games in so many ways that I had a strong urge to re-read THG after finishing this one. It's so good! I really liked the MC: Tella. She made the right decisions, she thought rationally and stood up for herself. She's one of the better main characters I have read so far. Also the writing style made me really enjoy reading this book and made me like Tella even more. So basically: if you haven't already read it, start it now!
Heir of Fire - Sarah J Maas (Throne of Glass #3)
I loved Heir of Fire! I think it was even better than Crown of Midnight because in the second book shit hits the fan near the end of the book while in Heir of Fire you constantly learn new and important things. There is so much character development going on, for all the characters in this book. There was a enough action to keep me satisfied but also the right amount of scenes that were purely 'informational' (if you get what I mean).
I didn't enjoy Manon's chapters that much. I understand that her POV and her story are important, especially for what's to come in the next books. Through her chapters you kind of get insight into what the King of Adarlan is planning.
I feel so, so bad for Dorian after what he went through in this book. After all his magic is unstable and he doesn't know how to get better at it. I was glad he found an ally in Sorscha though I couldn't get myself to trust her until the very last moment. She seemed too nice and friendly. People from Adarlan aren't usually nice and friendly... especially at court. Then Dorian's father put that Wyrdmark collar on his son and I was so shocked and sad!
As for the romance part of this book, obviously there wasn't much romance in Heir of Fire and at the end of this book it became clear that Chaol and Celaena were letting go of each other. Which leaves the question: what ship is endgame? What do you think?
The Iron Trial - Holly Black & Cassandra Clare (Magisterium #1)
This was clearly inspired by many other middle-grade and fantasy books but it was still a unique and entertaining story. I thought I knew where this book was going but I couldn't have been more wrong. The Iron Trial made me excited for the rest of this series!
