#Review #GraphicNovel ~~ Gotham High by Melissa de la Cruz

Rating: Gotham High by Melissa de la Cruz Thomas Pitilli Available on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2RUADBm Alex’s 5 Star Review Before I talk about the plot of Gotham High I first want to mention the artwork.  The cover is bright and eye-catching which is always great when looking for something to read.  The interior art was beautiful and extremely detailed! De La Cruz and Pitilli did a great job adapting this story into a graphic novel. I have always been a fan of superheroes so I was super excited about this! Graphic novels are also a nice change of pace every now...

#Review #Fantasy #AvailableNow ~~ THE QUEEN’S ASSASSIN by Melissa de la Cruz

Rating: THE QUEEN’S ASSASSIN Putnam Books for Young Readers; February 4, 2020 Alex’s 4 Blush Review Somehow, this was the first book I have ever read by De la Cruz.  While one would think a book titled The Queen’s Assassin would have a lot of assassinations, there weren’t all that many.  There was, however, magic, mystery, and romance, all of which kept me plenty entertained throughout the book. Shadow and Cal definitely fall into my group of ‘character types I will never stop reading about’.  Shadow is a strong female lead who isn’t afraid to do what she feels needs to...

#Review #YA #Fantasy #FiveBlushReview ~ The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Rating: THE CAGED QUEEN ALEX’S 5 BLUSH REVIEW   As much as I enjoyed The Last Namsara, I LOVED The Caged Queen.  I could not put this book down and read the majority of it in a day. Not only did it give insight into Asha’s fate after  The Last Namsara, but it continued the story of other characters in the book.  Roa and Dax had such an interesting relationship, and I enjoyed reading about their history. While this book had less dragons and a different kind of magic from The Last Namsara, both were still present and there was the...

#Review #YA #Fantasy ~~ The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

The Last Namsara (Iskari #1) by Kristen Ciccarelli Alex’s 4.5 Blush Review  This book had a lot of my favorite YA Fantasy components: a strong female main-character, magic, star-crossed lovers, a character you can love to hate, and some nice plot-twists.  Asha’s character development from the beginning of the book to the end was fantastic and natural.  I loved reading about her inner turmoil as she made decisions that went against her upbringing.  The book’s major plot-twist had my jaw actually dropping because I did not see it coming at all, which is always a sign of a good story...

#Review ~~ Embers of Memory – A Throne of Glass (by @SJMaas) Game by Kuro @BloomsburyPub

Alex’s Review Embers of Memory is the new Throne of Glass inspired puzzle/strategy game created by KURO and Osprey Games.  The game takes place during the final installment of the series, “Kingdom of Ash”. Players are warned not to continue the game if you aren’t caught up on the book series! The artwork on the box and the cards are beautiful! I loved looking through the Memory Deck and seeing all the characters. The box itself is pretty compact since the game only consists of two decks of cards and a 27-page instruction booklet. Playing the game itself was a...
