Forever Doon (Doon Series 4)


Forever Doon
By Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

  I clenched my fist tighter, squinting at the horizon where I willed mountains to appear. Please, I pleaded silently. We need to get back to Vee and the others. We need to save Doon. 
 
  The last book in Doon series has come!!!!  

I don’t want the journey end!!! The book is so good!!! Lovely, magical, Doonly… I’m so lucky that I was at NY when it release!!! So I can read it as soon as possible!!! I immediately devoured it when I get hold on this book…and couldn’t let it down. And see the cover? This is my favorite so far!!!

  With the Witch of Doon on the throne, Jamie believed dead, and Duncan and Mackenna trapped in Alloway, Veronica has no choice but to put her grief aside and prepare her remaining followers for the impending battle against the false queen and her minions. But while on a covert mission to steal a powerful elixir from the castle, Veronica discovers her true love may actually be alive, and fighting a battle of his own.
  With the Brig o’ Doon destroyed and the portal fragmented, Doon’s forces are not only divided, but also isolated in different dimensions. With the help of a storyteller as ancient as the witch herself, Kenna and Duncan learn they must rebuild the bridge to have any chance of crossing back into Doon with their ragtag army. But when Mackenna insists on fighting as well, Duncan soon realizes the only way he can ensure her safety is to turn her into a cold-hearted killer.
  For Vee, Jamie, Kenna, and Duncan, saving their kingdom while keeping their lives intact will take a miracle.

A Torch Against The Night (An Ember in the Ashes Series 2)

A Torch Against The Night
By Sabaa Tahir

  Most people are nothing but glimmers in the great darkness of time.
  But you are no swift-burning of spark.
  You are a torch against the night—if you dare to let yourself burn.

  Everyone keep asking me, isn’t ATATN supposed to be out at 8/31 how come you get the book so fast? Did I get an ARC? I hope so, but sadly...no. 
 Did I accidently go to Book-con? Unfortunately…still no. 
 THEN HOW ON EARTH I GOT THE BOOK SO FAST? AT MERELY THE DATE OF AUGUST SIXTH? I don’t know? Santa just give it to me as an early Christmas gift? 
 What? You don t believe me? I’m pretty serious!!! 
 See? All right, to tell the truth…I get it from Strand Book Store. As you might notice that I disappeared into ashes previously…and you might have heard me mention a thousand of times, but I was in New York!!! What’s best, since I stayed at NYU’s dorm Carlyle Court…which is merely 3 minutes from Barnes and Noble, 5 minutes from Strand Book Store, and 6 minutes from NYU Book Store. And you might have guessed what happen…I spent most of my NYC journey at those fantastic bookstores. So then at 8/6, I unfortunately caught a cold…I know, bloody hell. 
  All I could do was spent my entire Saturday at dorm room and hoped to recover soon. Till afternoon, after I finish my dinner…I thought “why not go to Strand for a deeper tour?” (Which I hadn’t entire finish it before.) So then I wonder around the bookstore up and down, trying to find some bargaining books. Suddenly…when I was about to leave the store, I caught a glimpse of A Torch Against The Night at the book car. I was like…what? Was I mistaken? And…
 
 
 I even ask the clerk whether this book was for sell or not!!! And without doubt, as soon as the clerk said it was avilable…I grabbed the book and paid without hesitation. What’s even better? it’s a bargaining price!!! So I only got it with $10!!!! Now you know how excited I was…and my NYC book haul…welll…gain another book…and I almost (already) over-weighted my suitcases.

 And you know what happened at the release day? I ran to the nearest Barnes and Noble as soon as I’m free from class…I just can’t wait any longer. (Well…if you follow me on Instagram…you might find the post that day.) So, without other words…let’s get start!!!

  Lia has survived Venda—but so has a great evil bent on the destruction of Morrighan. And only Lia can stop it.

Once Upon a Time Red’s Untold Tale

Once Upon a Time Red’s Untold Tale
By Wendy Toliver

  The hooded clock was made of rich red fabric;
  a lovely brocade on the outside
  and lined in lush velvet.
  I stood and tried it on, loving how the hood drooped over my braids and the cape flowed so regally to the ground.

  Good news for Oncer!!! This is a Once Upon a Time story. But the bad news is…I’ll keep this review short. Why? Because…it’s not as good as the TV…if I must say. Not so boring…but I can hardly tell it is bad or good…just…so so.

  It’s Wolfstime, the foreboding period around each full moon when villagers must protect their homes and families against the giant, ferocious wolves that roam the forest. On the day Red turned thirteen, Granny gave her a special red cloak upon which a spell had been cast to protect Red from wolves.
  Red is now sixteen and is desperately trying to fit in among her peers, save Granny’s failing bakery business, and, of course, protect herself from wolves. Her crush on Peter and her determination not to let the mean girls sabotage her blossoming romance cause Red to make some questionable choices.
  Will these choices let the wolves in? Will Red pick the right battle? Will her skills be strong enough to keep her alive?

  A good thing for all Once Upon a Time fan—every moment of Once Upon a Time flashes through my mind while I was reading, and of course, especially Red and Granny. The description of the characters and details are great, it’s like actually watching Granny with her scold.And see Red in her beautiful cloak. And it’s great to see Red and Peter’s little romance…you know…before he…

  But is the plot so impress? Well…not really. It’s just an ordinary story, with exquisite characters and scene setting…but the plot? Nope. However, the book looks beautiful with those little marks, and it’ll fit for a great decoration. Of course…read the book first. But if you’re looking for great adventures and excitement…then you have to remember that this is merely a short fairy tale.
