March Read Along Has Begun!

Just a quick post to let you all know the March Read Along has begun today! It’ll take place from today to the end of the month, the discussion boards will be set up today and be open all through the month so we can freely discuss the book together as time sees fit for everyone!

So if you want to discuss join our goodreads group and keep an eye out for the forums/boards to pop up sometime today and/or tomorrow.

If you don’t know we’re going to be reading The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine
23299513
Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.


And if you haven’t heard, we’re doing a give away with this book as well. We’ll be giving away A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas because well…A Court of Mist and Fury is coming out soon and we want someone to get a copy if they so choose so if you post on any social media show us your progress of reading and how you’re liking Shadow Queen by using #bibliomonthlyreads

Review : A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

Hey guys, I know it’s been a while but my computer broke and I just got it back right before July 4th and then the crazy 4th of July weekend came and so I’m behind on A LOT of reviews and a Wrap Up/TBR post.  Which is to come probably in a big bulk between tomorrow and Tuesday.

ANYWAY, WITHOUT FURTHER ADO:

16096824A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas 
Published: May 5th 2015

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

So, as many know this was our June Readalong book and thanks for the people who joined us in this read along (we’re going to try another one for August, so if you have any books to suggest please let us know!) it was great and the forum discussions were really good!

This book, I think so far is my top book for 2015. I cannot believe the amazingness that was this book. It was just beautiful and the end was just so great I had to read it twice to make sure it was right. Sarah J Maas just blew me away with her writing the most though. I don’t think I’ve ever picked up a book and had so much trouble setting it down to do things like go to work or eat. I’ve never read one of her books before (which is why I picked up Throne of Glass this month) and I’m so glad that this was my first book read by her.

I honestly still cannot fathom how she wrote all her characters so perfectly. Even the evil ones! I hated Amarantha, but at the same time, I loved her for being so amazingly written! And her plot line and backstory was amazing. Which leads me to say, that Sarah J Maas had the plot and storyline on point from beginning to end. The whole thing was just…fluid and always in motion and there wasn’t one point where I was just like “okay let’s get moving”. Although I did hear a lot of people had trouble with the beginning of the book, but I didn’t.

The pace was fast and yet the whole book had so much detail but I still wanted more,I hope there’s more detail in the next books and I hope to see more courts and go deeper into characters. Tamlin was great and his relationships with all the characters were wonderful too. I hated Fayre’s family until Nesta really turned out to be a bad ass. Which I was so happy about. But her character writing was just so amazing. There was literally not one bad thing about this book.

Props to you Sarah J Maas. You literally took my breath away with this book (and so many feels).
