Book Review: Tess of the Road (Rachel Hartman)

33123849

Goodreads // Spanish Review

In the medieval kingdom of Goredd, women are expected to be ladies, men are their protectors, and dragons get to be whomever they want. Tess, stubbornly, is a troublemaker. You can’t make a scene at your sister’s wedding and break a relative’s nose with one punch (no matter how pompous he is) and not suffer the consequences. As her family plans to send her to a nunnery, Tess yanks on her boots and sets out on a journey across the Southlands, alone and pretending to be a boy.

Where Tess is headed is a mystery, even to her. So when she runs into an old friend, it’s a stroke of luck. This friend is a quigutl–a subspecies of dragon–who gives her both a purpose and protection on the road. But Tess is guarding a troubling secret. Her tumultuous past is a heavy burden to carry, and the memories she’s tried to forget threaten to expose her to the world in more ways than one.

Review:

Normally I don’t read high fantasy books, because honestly, I’m not smart enough. With Tess of the Road… I don’t know what to say, It was beautiful, this book is a “must have” for everyone. I found myself feeling as desperate as Tess through her journey, I was rooting for her, and she didn’t disappoint.

Fair warning: read Seraphina before Tess, otherwise you gonna get spoiled as I did haha

I’m happy how It ended, but honesty I want more from Tess.

Secret Identities. Extraordinary Powers. She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Review: Renagades

One the most anticipated books for me this year was Renegades. When I could get my paws on the earc I was so happy, but sadly, it was not as amazing as I expected to be.

I was expecting a book about cool villains or at least SMART villains, I mean, they almost win if it wasn’t for the variable they didn’t count on, but through all the book they act without thinking on the big picture, they were… silly.

Then we have Nova. I like her character, what I don’t like is how little motivation she shows, I mean, you expect of her a little more passion on her mission, she already got the brains and the muscle.

Renegades wasn’t the epic tale of villains versus heroes I expected, although Marissa Meyer does a great work narrative speaking.

Book Review: Rapunzel (Bethan Woollvin)

GoodReads // Spanish Review

The wicked witch has Rapunzel trapped – but not for long!
Rapunzel lives all alone in a tall, dark tower. Under the threat of a witch’s fearsome curse, the poor girl seems doomed to a life in captivity. But is Rapunzel frightened? Oh no, not she!

Review:

My favourite fairy tale of all time is Rapunzel, and until now, I haven’t read a good version about her, with this one I got a little annoyed because it’s so short!

Rapunzel it’s so badass. I would’ve love being told this story instead of the original when I was a kid.
