The Fireman by Joe Hill // Review

Title: The Fireman by Joe Hill

Rating: ★★★★★

Release: 7th June 2016

Synopsis: Nobody knew where the virus came from.
FOX News said it had been set loose by ISIS, using spores that had been invented by the Russians in the 1980s. MSNBC said sources indicated it might’ve been created by engineers at Halliburton and stolen by culty Christian types fixated on the Book of Revelation. CNN reported both sides.
While every TV station debated the cause, the world burnt. Pregnant school nurse, HARPER GRAYSON, had seen lots of people burn on TV, but the first person she saw burn for real was in the playground behind the school.

Review:

A brilliantly suspenseful novel focusing on the impact of the world turning against you, and the terrifying knowledge that you could burn alive at any time.

Book Synopsis:
On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in
love.
Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to
hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested
in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot
more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out
of that commitment. Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster Highs social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isnt the Goth loner he pretends to be, hes a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starrs hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit. By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available.
Look below for a quick excerpt from the book!
“I didn’t tell you about my aunt,” he smiles.
“Is she a secret agent? Because that would really be convenient.”
“No, but almost as good, she’s a doctor. She works from time to time in hospitals, but her true passion is Doctors without Borders. She stayed home most of the summer and fall, but she’s not as happy in the states as she is in the field. A month ago, I finally convinced her I would be fine on my own.”
“So, let me guess. She’s on assignment?” I eye him warily.
“You got it. Darfur to be exact.”
“How long?” He turns to me. A crooked smile crosses his face. “Months and months.”
I almost get lost in his smile, but I catch myself. I can’t get distracted. “No.”
“No?” he says, “What do you mean ‘no’?
“I mean that you are not risking your life for me. Enough people are,” I gulp, “dead because of me. I will not put your life in harm’s way.”
“Too late,” he replies.
“No, it isn’t. Drop me off on the road, and I’ll figure this thing out.”
“No.”
“No? What do you mean no? Drop me off on the side of the road. I’ll be fine. I’ve survived this long, haven’t I?” I shout as I sit up in my seat. I tick off everything
I’ve done over the past four days. “I escaped the test site, swam Lake Ontario,
and have managed to hide out without getting caught. I am doing a damn good job
of going underground.”
“No, you aren’t,” he says.
I could spit fireballs at him. “What do you care? I thought you were, and I quote, ‘done helping people.’”
He pulls over to the side of the road and puts the car in park. His expression gives no hint to his mood. “Because of this,” he says and locks his fingers in mine. Electrical currents surge through them. The wall I’ve kept up for days and days crashes down as I lose what control I had left. The thread is broken.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas // *Spoiler Free* Review

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

Rating: ★★★★★

Release Date: 3rd May 2016

The 3rd May saw the release of the sequel to new fantasy series A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. It was potentially one of the most anticipated books this year, with book bloggers, booktubers and book fans alike all waiting with bated breath for the release.

To say it was worth the wait is the biggest understatement in the world. This book was everything I ever wanted in a sequel and so so much more. I thought ACOTAR was amazing but this exceeded it for so many reasons.

First off, the writing style of this book is just perfect. If you’ve read my Top Ten Tuesday of what I love Sarah J. Maas you’ll know that I love her writing. The story moves quickly enough that it’s never boring but never too fast that you’re left questioning what happened or why something happened. It was just perfectly paced and everything happened at just the right time.

The development of the characters was also amazing. We learn so much more about Rhysand in this book and the Night Court and it just slots everything into place. It’s like ACOTAR gave us half the story with Tamlin’s POV, but this one completes the story by giving Rhysand’s POV. The two books work so well off of each other, and not only is Rhysand’s character development great to see but Feyre. The way that Feyre’s character is written in this book is my absolute favourite thing. She isn’t portrayed as this ‘constantly strong heroine’ or even a lovesick girl like she sometimes came across as in ACOTAR, but instead as a broken woman who’s trying her best to get through adjusting to her new life and dealing with what happened at the end of the last book. It gives it a more realistic feel to the book and her character.
