Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa: A disappointing sequel to one of my favorite books of 2018, this book has a plot that meanders through pointless side quests that feel like a lot like filler.
Other Words for Home by Jasmine Warga: Full of beautiful prose that will stick with you long after you finish reading the last page, this book is nothing short of a modern masterpiece.
This book depicts a world where there is poverty and a high class society, where there is a hard line and no in between. Readers are able to read in as both characters, seeing each point of view, their similarities and differences. This book is definitely a struggle to put down. We can easily make connections between this book and the real world, with examples of harsh government control and power, violence, police/military brutality, poverty and much more.
So what part of the book are you. Which character are you like? Which character are you because you may be like the best characters that make the story interesting. Maybe you can be a Legend in real life!
Time to discuss! What did you all think of the book? I read it once and have listened to the audiobook once, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really liked both June and Day, and I felt like the whole book was quick paced and nicely timed. Granted, it isn't one of my absolute favorite YA books, but I would definitely recommend it.
The dragons are only a small part of this very popular book, but it is very memorable. The challenge that Harry (and others) must complete is very creative. The dragons in this story are closer to beasts than sentient creatures, and it forces the character and reader to realize that the dragons must be defeated with intelligence, not brute force. Although this is quite different from many stories, including mine, I can appreciate the difference and the value it brings to the trial Harry is trying to complete.
Not crime although there are crimes in it. The narrative structure of the quartet was a major influence on structuring my trilogy. The first three present different versions of the same events and characters in Alexandria, Egypt before and during the Second World War. In Book 1, a self-absorbed, pretentious narrator, Darley, presents an account of an intense love affair. In book 2, Balthazar shows how ignorant he was about what was really going on about him. Mountolive widens the political context and shows both earlier narrators were looking through the wrong end of a telescope. Book 4 manages to tease out yet more solutions to mysteries thought resolved.

Details of the "Italian Mafia Incident" are unknown, but the "First Lecture in Greece Incident" was the first time Waver got into teaching. While he was visiting some sites, he introduced himself to the Second Owner. As it was quite rare for someone from the Clock Tower to show up around there, he ended up teaching a few of his sons for a bit, though they lacked a good enough room, or any decent textbooks to work from. During his trip to Greece, Waver also got some experience learning how to drive a motorboat.
He then presents the ashes Reines found, and theorizes that they took the catalyst, burned it, and covered Carina with the ashes. "CinderellaWP" means "ash covered", so drawing on that legend they could turn her into a magical beauty for a single night. Unfortunately, this meant that the catalyst Atrum was chasing had already been burnt up. Touko confirms that destroying an invaluable treasure that had survived for thousands of years for one night's perfect ritual sounds exactly like something she would do. There's a lot of other factors he goes over- the maid being more suitable because of the concept that looking at something beautiful makes yourself more beautiful, and the Princess of Gold herself could never do more than look at herself in the mirror, as well as figuring out that both the Princesses had some sort of defect. One couldn't see, the other couldn't hear. At this point Touko names Regina, the other maid, as being the one who requested she take out the El-Melloi faction, with the promised payment being the secret of the Princess of Gold's beauty (which ironically was largely due to Touko's own skills). Regina refuses to talk. 2b1af7f3a8
