BOOK REVIEW : MIRAGE (MIRAGE #1) BY SOMAIYA DAUD
Somaiya Daud's Mirage is the first book in the series by the same name. I got the ARC to the second book from Netgalley and wanted to read this immediately so that I can get to the ARC in August. This is a Moroccan inspired fantasy with elements of African mythology weaved into the story wonderfully creating a fantastical world worth losing oneself in. Mirage is set in a world where an oppressive regime has taken hold of the moon Andala. Amani, a poor farmer's daughter gets kidnapped and brought to a new place to stand-in for the King's daughter. King's daughter faces dangers from the people of Andala who…
BOOK REVIEW : CHOSEN ONES (THE CHOSEN ONES #1) BY VERONICA ROTH
Chosen Ones is the first book I have read from the author Veronica Roth. I was intrigued by the synopsis and wanted to see how the author took the trope of The Chosen One and applied it. The story follows the chosen ones selected to fight against the Dark One who brought terror, destruction, and widespread death to the world. The 5 chosen ones were in their teens when they were recruited by the government. We follow their journey as adults and how their experiences have shaped them. We follow Sloane and we get the story from her perspective and how she battles with the aftermath of the encounter. The…

BOOK REVIEW : VENGEFUL (VILLAINS #2) BY V.E.SCHWAB
Vicious was such a wild ride and after reading it I just wanted to continue on with the series as I already had the next book with me. loved how Vicious ended and I felt it could stand strong as a standalone if that was how the author intended for the story to be. However Vengeful expands upon the world, the concept of EOs and we get to learn more about our characters and everything that makes them who they are. We get a new set of characters in this book and they are just as morally grey and anti-hero as the original cast. Marcella after her brush with death…
BOOK REVIEW : VICIOUS (VILLAINS #1) BY V.E.SCHWAB
Wow!! I have no idea why I put this book off for so long and let me just say that I am so happy that I finally picked it up because I would have missed out on a great book. I really enjoyed the book even though at first I was a little confused about the timeline and the irregular time jumps in the story. Once I got into the story I was hooked. I loved how V E Schwab wrote these characters to showcase the dark side of human beings and how they behave when they hold power. This book masterfully showcases human behavior and psyche when they are…
BOOK REVIEW : A HISTORY OF MADNESS (THE OUTLANDS PENTALOGY #2) BY REBECCA CRUNDEN
A history of madness is the second book in The Outland's Pentalogy series. I read the first book in January. I gave the book 4.5 stars. The world-building is fascinating. We have the mutants and humans at war with each other. Both species have their own views about how the world came to be the way it is now. The humans have ruled the world that emerged after the devastation with firm hands and is ruthlessly enacting laws and regulations to keep the citizens from finding freedom. The indoctrination of the Kingdom is deeply rooted in a falsified history.
