Weekly Wrap-Up Wednesday March 7 -March 13, 2019

Wrap-UP

My weekly wrap-ups include the books I read the past week along with mini reviews for each one.

 

 

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1)

An Ember in the Ashes(An Ember in the Ashes, #1) by Sabaa Tahir
Format: Audiobook
Source: Library
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Narrator: Fiona Harding
Narrator Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Date Finished: 03/05/2018

This story was hard-hitting, that is for sure. I really felt for all of the characters aside from Elias’s mother. I especially loved Izzy and Cook. I can’t wait to continue with this series.

 

 

The Silent Patient

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
Format: Hardcover
Source: Book of the Month
Genre: Adult Thriller Mystery
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Date Finished: 03/07/2018

I really thought I had it all figured out about 2/3 of the way through and then I changed my mind toward the end and I was right. This book was full of twists and turns and was such a delicious thriller.

 

Now I Rise (The Conqueror's Saga #2)

Now I Rise(The Conqueror’s Saga #2) by Kiersten White
Format: Ebook
Source: Amazon
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy, Historical Fiction
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Date Finished: 03/08/2018

This book did not disappoint. Finally, the love triangle is put on the back-burner and we can enjoy the action and story. I liked Radu in the first book, but this book made me love him even more. I cannot wait for the third book in this series!

Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children, #3)

Beneath the Sugar Sky(Wayward Children, #3) by Seanan McGuire
Format: Audiobook
Source: Library
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
Narrator: Michelle Dockrey
Narrator Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Date Finished: 03/08/2018

I think this was my least favorite. I also felt that it could have been longer and more in depth. I didn’t feel I connected with the characters or the story as much in this one.

 

In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children, #4)
