May NG Fails

These are the following books that lost my attention as I was reading them... and DNF on me!

FrostBlood

Title: FrostBlood
Author: Elly Blake
Rating: /5

Description:
Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a Fireblood who has concealed her powers of heat and flame from the cruel Frostblood ruling class her entire life. But when her mother is killed trying to protect her, and rebel Frostbloods demand her help to overthrow their bloodthirsty king, she agrees to come out of hiding, desperate to have her revenge.
Despite her unpredictable abilities, Ruby trains with the rebels and the infuriating--yet irresistible--Arcus, who seems to think of her as nothing more than a weapon. But before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to compete in the king's tournaments that pit Fireblood prisoners against Frostblood champions. Now she has only one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who has taken everything from her--and from the icy young man she has come to love.Vivid and compelling, Frostblood is the first in an exhilarating series about a world where flame and ice are mortal enemies...but together create a power that could change everything.


My Short Review: coming soon!

Wintersong

Title: Wintersong
Author: S. Jae-Jones
Rating:  /5

Description:
Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell.

All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.

But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.

Down in the Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires her—musically, physically, emotionally. Yet even as her talent blossoms, Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music, or the end of the world.

My Short Review: Missing some books in this but so far LOVE these small books! And the stories about Z and his friends are really cute and good for children and maybe teens. I wish I was still a teen... but being an adult and a fan of minecraft with ADD... I can say these are good stories!

Book One Review:
This small book had a lot of charm to it, that made me smile. What if Zombies in Minecraft weren't bad and what if they could friend humans. Z and Steve will make the best of friends in the future I know it and that prank made in laugh. This book is a lot like Diary of a wimpy kid but I totally love it anyways since I'm a fan of Minecraft and played it for years and watched a bunch of youtubers play it over the years. So yup... good book, good job! Now off to read the story about Alex next! See ya!

Book Two Review:
Need to find it in the file!

Things seem to get ugly but with some teamwork from Z and his friends they will find a way... well until the kids return to their own school.

Book Six Review:
Young Love, and the butterflies that follow... but is it real? Z meets Morgana who is a witch and they hit it off very quickly. And she offers to put a spell on him but can't take it off. Z doesn't know what to do or if he really likes her... he wants to be at least friends! Will it become more?

Movie Corner - Moana


Title: Moana
Rating: 5/5 stars

Description: From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes "Moana," a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors' unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui, and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.

My Short Review: This is an awesome, epic story about a girl who loves her people and wants to help them but her destiny is so much more. OMG this movie is a masterpiece and worth the 20-30 bucks! Get it! I was crying, laughing, smiling, and singing thru this movie! And who doesn't love a silly sidekick! HEY HEY the chicken is a riot! This movie is a prize movie and Disney better keep it up. Moana is a sassy, independent princess who doesn't need a man and I love how Disney is steering away from that type of story. Thumbs up.

Hunted


Title: Hunted
Author: Meagan Spooner
Rating: 5/5

Description: Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them.

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance.

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

Goodreads

My Short Review: Not your normal Beauty and the Beast story. But Wow IDK where to start... I want more. Beauty is a badass, and beast nice! Nice story, characters, the story never stopped... glad I read this!
