A darker shade of magic *V.E. Schwab*

Hello my lovely bookfellows!
So it took me ages to finally get to write something here again (I know..). I had a lot  of things going on that I had to deal with but now I got some time to finally review a book that I read a few wekks ago!

A Darker Shade final for Irene

Author      : V.E. Schwab/ Victoria Schwab
Publisher : Tor/TitanPages         : 400
ISBN          : 0765376458
Genre        : YA, Fantasy

Kell is one of the last Antari, a rare magician who can travel between parallel worlds: hopping from Grey London — dirty, boring, lacking magic, and ruled by mad King George — to Red London — where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire — to White London — ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne, where people fight to control magic, and the magic fights back — and back, but never Black London, because traveling to Black London is forbidden and no one speaks of it now.

Officially, Kell is the personal ambassador and adopted Prince of Red London, carrying the monthly correspondences between the royals of each London. Unofficially, Kell smuggles for those willing to pay for even a glimpse of a world they’ll never see, and it is this dangerous hobby that sets him up for accidental treason. Fleeing into Grey London, Kell runs afoul of Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She robs him, saves him from a dangerous enemy, then forces him to take her with him for her proper adventure.

But perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save both his London and the others, Kell and Lila will first need to stay alive — a feat trickier than they hoped.

New In

Aloha guys!
The other day, I got some new bookish stuff and a book in the mail. I literally waited for ages but it finally arrived YAY!
I ordered the book and some other stuff from book depository and if you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly recommend you do because it’s just awesooommeee!
They have loads of books (duh..) and some special editions of books and also some goodies like bookmarks and merch and everything.

And this is what I bought:

This is what I got. The colouring bookmarks were for free (I didn’t order them, they are a goodie I got extra) and I looooveee them! Can’t wait to colour them and make them individual.
And of course the best thing is “Wolf by wolf” by Ryan Graudin! I’m so freaking excited to read this book because everyone is raving about it.
Have you read the book? And have you already made some experiences with book depository?

And before I forget to mention this: I won’t be able to post new reviews and tags for the next 14 days or so because I finally have holidays! (YAY!) But sadly, I won’t be able to take my laptop with me and post some stuff 😦

Hope you’re having a great night/day!
See you very soon

I had really high expectations because everyone was raving about this book.
But it didn’t disappoint me at all even though I had some “struggles” with it.Read More »

Book&DVD Haul

Aloha my lovelies!
I am finally at home again (yaaay) and that means I finally have time to blog and read more:)
To celebrate that (and because I was sick and it’s really boring at home the whole day) I decided to buy some books and a DVD, I wanted for a really long time.
Most of the books are the German editions but I am sure you can recognize them since the title is mostly the same 😀
However, I will write down the english names of the books as well!

So, first of all I went straight to the DVD section because I wanted to get the 100 so badly. This is season 1 and I am so excited to re-watch this show (this is a direct message to you directors from the 100: Pleaaaasee hurry up with season 4..)
And I also bought Red Rising by Pierce Brown. This book sounds sooo interesting and in the back it says that this is a must-have for all hunger games and the martian fans. I literally had no choice 😉
Next I bought “Das Feuerzeichen” by Francesca Haig. The english edition is called “The fire Sermon” and the covers are almost the same! I really love it.
I also bought “These broken stars” by Amie Kaufman and Meghan Spooner because it just came out in German ( but I will probably get the english book, too because the cover is just soooo much better) and “Truthwitch” by Susan Dennard.

So what do you think about all these books? Have you read any of them? Have you seen “the 100” or read the novels?

UPDATE

Hello you guys!
Today I just wanted to write a short update because I haven’t posted much the last few days.
That’s because we have literally no life during the exam weeks plus we need to finish a lot of projects in school.
Since school is kinda sucky the last month, I couldn’t read as much as I’d liked to and therefore I couldn’t upload any reviews 😦 Next week will be super busy but after that I hope I can catch up with my reading goal for this year and read a whoooole bunch of books 🙂

Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone—one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship —tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn’t do something soon, her parents will be next.

Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed’s hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there’s only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.
