Review: A Gathering Of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

Book 57/60
Title: A Gathering Of Shadows
Author: V.E. Schwab
Released: February 23, 2016
Genre(s): Fantasy, Young Adult, Fiction
Page Count: 509
Purchase: Amazon - Kindle - Audiobook

Synopsis: 
Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell's possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland's dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games-an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries-a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again-and so to keep magic's balance, another London must fall.

Weekly Recap: 12/10 - 12/16

AWAY FROM THE BLOG

As Christmas gets closer, I get busier. The work week was pretty nice and slow. I was able to go out and do more things this week. I wasn't just confined to my house. Which means, I didn't finish reading any books this week. 

We took our little man to see Santa on Saturday. Boy, was he excited. My son loves Santa. He's never once cried when he looked at him. Even as a baby! Here's some pictures that I took:


With Christmas being one week away, I'm not going to guarantee that I have posts coming. I'm almost done with A Gathering Of Shadows and I honestly think that'll be the last book that is read before Christmas. 

I wish you all the merriest Christmas. I hope it is everything you could ever ask for. I'll be spending so much time away from my computer and I hope you guys do too!

NEW BOOKS THIS WEEK

I won another book from Goodreads! It's an ARC of This Is Not A Love Scene by S.C. Megale. I'm thinking about taking a little break from reading the Darker Shade Of Magic series and reading this cute book. I also bought Queen Of Air And Darkness... why? Because it's beautiful. I do not have Lord Of Shadows yet but I'm working on that. 

THIS WEEK I READ

Like I said earlier, I didn't finish any books this week. I'm like 90% done with A Gathering Of Shadows though.

A to Z Book Tag ~ 2018

I've been really slacking with my blog. I just haven't really been feeling it, you know? I always want to make the best blog I can have and I never end up doing any of the things I want to do. Does anyone else have this issue?

I could have sworn I did a tag like this back in 2016 but I think I did something entirely different. I don't remember. But I'm doing this while listening to A Gathering Of Shadows because I'm set on finishing this series before the end of this year!

This is going to be entirely based on 2018.

Weekly Recap: 12/3 - 12/9

AWAY FROM THE BLOG

This week has been super busy. I've worked a lot and didn't really have time to do too much. We did some shopping on Friday night after I got off work. We got some Christmas presents and we also discovered this amazing store called Ollie's. They have so many cheap books. You'll see that down below. 

We went to Lights of Lakeland last night. Basically, it's Christmas land. It was so unbelievably crowded. We didn't stay too long but we did have fun. Other than that, we didn't really do too much. I totally ate a shit ton of Taco Bell last night too. No regrets.

NEW BOOKS THIS WEEK

I was naughty with getting books this week. But, they were so cheap, I had to. Super cheap. A Million Junes: $1.99. R.I.P Eliza Hart: $3.99. Jane Unlimited: $1.99. Warcross: $1.99. It was an amazing haul this week. Didn't spend more than $20!

Book Blogger Insider Tag:

Hey guys, I'm coming at you today with a fun little book tag. I'm trying to do at least one random blog post a week that's not a book review or haul or anything like that. I didn't particularly want to do the Top Ten Tuesday topic for the week soooo I'm bringing you a tag.

I'm trying to read as much as I can this month. I've already finished two books and I'm working on my third. With that being said, I'm going to hurry up and do this tag and get to reading.

I have done this post in the past but I decided to do it again. Fight me.

Released: September 4th, 2018
Genre(s): Young Adult, Mystery
Page Count: 311

Sadie hasn't had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she's been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.

But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie's entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister's killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him.

When West McCray―a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America―overhears Sadie's story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie's journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it's too late.

Weekly Recap: 11/26 - 12/2


AWAY FROM THE BLOG


It's finally December! The best month of the year. I'm looking forward to so many thing this month and I can't wait to share them with all of you. As for last week, I didn't do too much. I worked late a lot this week and it's hard to go out and get anything done when I have to work late. 

As you can see, I've made changes to my blog... again. That was my main focus for this week. I wanted everything to look clean and simple. I didn't want to do the crazy filters on my photos anymore. I'm really liking the white minimal look. What do you guys think?

NEW BOOKS THIS WEEK


This is yet another Goodreads giveaway I won. I've been doing pretty good with luck with Goodreads this last part of the year. I actually have another win on the way!


THIS WEEK I READ

I didn't get a lot of reading done this week. I only finished one book, unfortunately. ADSOM was a pretty good book. I didn't fall in love with it like everyone else, though.

November Reading Wrap Up:

This was a pretty decent reading month for me. I read my first graphic novel, Speak. I was surprised with how quick I read it. Less than four hours! I also read the behemoth, Kingdom of Ash. BOY, I never thought I was going to finish that thing.

I ended up finishing the month with some contemporaries. Honestly, after KoA, I didn't want to jump back into a fantasy right after I just finished this amazing series.

As you can also see throughout this month, I've had a lot of changes done to everything. I've changed my photos. A lot. I've changed my theme. A lot. I'm having a crisis if you couldn't tell.

November 2018 Book Haul:

This month was a good book buying month. I spent a little more than I probably should have. That's okay. It's good to splurge every now and then.

As you can see, I went through many crises with my photos. I still don't know how I'm going to take them. But we'll see I guess.

Review: A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Book 55/50
Title: A Darker Shade Of Magic
Author: V.E. Schwab
Released: February 24th, 2015
Genre(s): Fantasy
Page Count: 398
Purchase: Amazon - Kindle - Audiobook

Synopsis: 
Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.

Kell was raised in Arnes—Red London—and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, traveling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see.

Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see. It's a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.

After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.

Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they'll first need to stay alive.
