Our first guest is Kimberly, a book blogger who is better known as the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
I am a coffee loving book addict and began blogging over three years ago and own Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I am a very eclectic reader and enjoy genres in YA, NA and Adult. I share reviews 4-5 days a week, with monthly discussions, recipes and blogging tips. I am the host of the Sunday Post meme, a weekly blog news, book haul post. I currently work part time, have three grown children and have been married for 26 years.
Better known to many as Kimba, she has chosen the following two books to talk about today:
FIRST I READ THIS:
Throne Of Glass By Sarah J. Maas is a YA Fantasy series with a kick-ass heroine. The world building was fantastic, brilliant and spell-bounding. Maas breathed life into the glass castle, the characters and the world of Adarlan. In a world filled with Fae, witches and magic, the mortal king has outlawed all forms of magic. Celaena is well versed in the Fae and has a healthy fear of them. When she discovers Wyrdmarks around the castle she is intrigued and sets out to learn their meaning. I became swept up in the mystery of these marks and the discoveries she made.
SO THEN I READ THIS:
The Bone Season By Samantha Shannon is a YA fantasy dystopian with an interesting blend of fantasy, science-fiction and mythology. I was instantly catapulted into the year 2059 and wrapped up in its characters. Part one of a seven book series, whose film rights have already been sold, Shannon’s debut novel hits the ground running. Three word review: stunning, mesmerizing, and imaginative.
Both books have well developed characters, plots and as a reader you become caught up as the rest of the world slips away.
