The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1) by Holly Black
Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
I was so excited to start with this book, it’s one of my most anticipated of the year!. At the beginning I wasn’t sure about the plot, I must say that it’s quite typical in fantasy, but then I fell in love with the characters, especially the main character. Jude is so fierce, determined and strong, she’s a great character to follow, all her actions are catching me more and more and then we have Locke and I just love him, I’m go 50% through the book so I still have a long way to go, My opinions about the characters may change, although I hope they don’t disappoint me. I expect more surprises and twists in the plot, I would also like to see more action but until now is quite addictive.

Poison Study (Poison Study #1) by Maria V. Snyder
Choose: A quick death…Or slow poison…
About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She’ll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.
And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly’s Dust—and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison.
As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can’t control. Her life is threatened again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren’t so clear…
This book was much better than I expected, many people had told me that I should read it and I’m glad I finally did it. It has a lot of political drama, secrets and a magic touch that you’ll surely enjoy. I really want to continue with the second book possibly this month, there is still alot of thing I want to know about the magic system and how it works. Plus: Has another very valuable main character! Full Review: HERE

The Midnight Star (The Young Elites #3) by Marie Lu
There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.
Adelina Amouteru is done suffering. She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory. Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest her cruelty only grows. The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all she’s gained.
When a new danger appears, Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds, putting not only herself at risk, but every Elite. In order to preserve her empire, Adelina and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest—though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.
I think I already said it a million times, but I love the second book of this trilogy, so I really want to know what will happen! I have alot of mixed feelings, on the one hand I’m dying to see my babies again and re-find myself with the world, but on the other hand I don’t want it to end! So I hope it’s an incredible ending to close this trilogy with a flourish
Layover by Amy Andelson, Emily Meyer
Flynn: At first we were almost strangers. But ever since I moved to New York, Amos was the one person I could count on. And together we were there for Poppy. (I mean, what kind of parents leave their kid to be raised by a nanny?) I just didn’t expect to fall for him—and I never expected him to leave us.
Amos: I thought I was the only one who felt it. I told myself it was because we were spending so much time together—taking care of Poppy and all. But that night, I could tell she felt it, too. And I freaked out—you’re not supposed to fall for your stepsister. So I ran away to boarding school. I should have told her why I was leaving, but every time I tried, it felt like a lie.
One missed flight was about to change their lives forever….
I have this book to review, so that’s why I want to read it this month before its realease date which is in February. Sounds like really taboo and that intrigues me, I’m interested in knowing how the author will play a theme like this one, I want to know if it will have a dramatic focus or it will be something lighter so we’ll see, I’ll be uploading my review once I read it
