Book Review: The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King

My thoughts 

I’ve returned! I am going to be talking about the cruel prince and the wicked king in this blog post. Both these books were super hyped, and I was very late reading them and was hesitant to read them considering the amount of negativity towards them but I’m so glad I decided to buy them. Starting with the cruel prince, I absolutely loved it I read it in under six hours and couldn’t put it down at all. It has everything I feel like I could ask for, a unique love story, murder, betrayal I mean what more do you need! Once I finished The Cruel Prince, I woke up the next morning and bought the wicked king (I have no restraint) it took me a little longer to get into The Wicked King, but I still finished it in a day. I’m not even going to lie I cried after reading it. Honestly, I have no idea how I’m going to wait a year for The Queen of Nothing but here we are waiting and waiting……  

 
Characters 

Jude- I love her and would honestly die for her she deserves the world and happiness. I mean she was stolen from her life and put into a world unknown and dangerous to her. 

Taryn- She needs to take a chill pill. Honestly i can’t stand her and I hope she gets what she deserves…. 

Vivi- She’s just trying to live her life and love her woman like why can’t she just get the happiness she deserves. 

Madoc- I don’t know if anyone’s else feels this way but i thought he was one of the most interesting characters and I couldn’t hate him. You can tell he cares for Jude and Taryn even in his own twisted ways. 

Oriana- I feel like she’s a lot deeper than people think and I feel like she is looking out for Jude whether Jude wants to see it as that or not. 

Cardan- Not gonna lie I tired to hate him but I actually love him and think he’s misunderstood and just needs some love especially after reading the wicked king.

Balekin- Tried to hate him. Should hate him.  

Locke- no. 

Nicasia- I think she’s misunderstood and just wants to make her mom happy? But still not sure about her. 

Valerian- He got what he deserved let’s be honest…… 

 
Favorite quotes from both books 

“Most of all, I hate you because I think of you. Often. It’s disgusting, and I can’t stop.”  

“But kissing Locke never felt the way that kissing Cardan does, like taking a dare to run over knives, like an adrenaline strike of lightning, like the moment when you’ve swum too far out in the sea and there is no going back, only cold black water closing over your head.”  

“He’s flint, you’re tinder.”  

“Instead of being afraid, I could become something to fear.” 

“Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold on to.”  

“His mouth curls into a smile. His eyes shine with wicked intent. “Look at them all, your subjects. A shame not a one knows who their true ruler is.”  

Overall 

I would most definitely recommend this. It was great and probably my favorite read of 2019 so far.

Percy Jackson Book Review

So to begin with I started these books for my friend Arin because she absolutely loves them and I wanted to understand what she was talking about. Anyways, I really enjoyed this book I will definitely be reading the rest of them. I honestly didn’t know much about Greek mythology before this, but I instantly wanted to learn more after reading about gods such as Hephaestus (whos name I had to ask Arin how to pronounce for me probably 15 times), Athena, Poseidon, and Hades (my favorite honestly not gonna lie). I could probably talk about a million more things but i’ll keep it short. I would recommend this series to many people it’s honestly so good and I was kinda hesitant seeing as how it’s supposedly a kids book, but it tackles some topics I think teenagers and young adults could relate to. It really surprised me and i’m glad I decided to read it.

Favorite color and do you have a book in that color?

My favorite color is red, and yes I have two red Harry Potter books.

Describe yourself in 3 book characters

Blue Sargent from The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater (we both can be very opinionated), Baz Pitch from Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (We both tend to push people away), Alec Lightwood from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (We both can be sassy)

Hyped books yay or nay? If yay, what was the most hyped book you ever read? If nay, what was the most hyped book you decided not to read?

Yay. I read Queen of Air and Darkness when it came out and it had been hyped for months. Honestly though I didn’t find it as good as Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows it was kind of a letdown, but I still enjoyed it.

Recommend one book per season. Spring. Summer. Fall. Winter.

Spring: I’ll give you the sun by Jandy Nelson

Summer: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Fall: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Winter: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Name one book that wrecked you emotionally

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven it’s an emotional roller coaster and I cried in the middle of my high school English class. Tip: DON’T READ IN PUBLIC I’VE MADE THIS MISTAKE

Name a book that you always recommend to everybody you know

Carry On. Always no matter when or where if you ask me for a book to read it will be Carry On

What is your guilty pleasure book?

Vampire academy, but I think after reading The Lighting Thief it might change.

Physical book or ebook?

Always a physical book.

Can you read while listening to music or watching tv?

Yes, in fact I turn the tv on for background noise when I read a lot of the time.

Are you a procrastinator? What book have you procrastinated reading?

I am to an extent. I’ve gotten much better and I think the Percy Jackson series was the only one I was really procrastinating, but I just started it.
