Blood Promise Review

8900186 Rose Hathaway’s life will never be the same.

The recent attack on St. Vladimir’s Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose’s neck, a mark that says she’s killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters … Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life’s vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She’ll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make. But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved?

Now, with everything at stake—and worlds away from St. Vladimir’s and her unguarded, vulnerable, and newly rebellious best friend—can Rose find the strength to destroy Dimitri? Or, will she sacrifice herself for a chance at eternal love?

The Night Circus Review

13611052 The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love – a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

So without further ado lets reveal these gorgeous covers that I need on my book shelves and get into my reaction to the covers and, what I think ‘A Court of Wings and Ruin’ might bring. I would also love to hear your own fan theories – who knows? Maybe together we can uncover some elements! 🙂

Hey guys!

Today I am back with yet another book tag but hold on – this one is not at all like other book tags. Why you may ask? Because Books and Tea Leaves has hit a milestone and has been nominated by BooksPoemsClouds to do the Mystery Blogger Award, originally created by  Okoto Enigma. For those of you just joining the blog I should point out that normally I’m not nominated to do tags as my blog is only just starting out. So you can imagine I am very excited. So thank you BooksPoemsClouds for recognizing my humble blog with your nomination. 🙂 It’s very much appreciated!
