The Rainbow Book Tag 🌈

Happy Thursday, bibliophiles! Whew, I’m so glad that the school week is nearly over, even though it’s the first week…

It’s been low-key, for the most part, at least. I haven’t gotten dumped with review like I did on Monday for Spanish, and it’s mostly been google meets, so that’s been nice and quiet.

I found this tag over at Bookforager, and the tag was originally created by Le Book Chronicles. Here’s the objective: go through the books on your shelf (or your TBR), and pick out your favorite (if possible) book of each color of the rainbow! My bookshelf is already arranged in rainbow order (is that cheating?), so this should be fun!

RULES:

  1. Must be the dominant color of the COVER, not the spine!
  2. If you do not own a book of a certain color, just choose one that has the color on it somewhere
  3. It has to be a book you own and/or has to be the exact edition you read (e.g. there are two different overs for Me Before You, you would choose the one you read)
  4. TAG some people to do it! Whether they be Bloggers, Bookstagrammers or BookTubers

Let’s begin, shall we?

Book Review Tuesday (8/23/16)- Monstrous (series)

I am so exciting to be posting this book today! It’s one of my new favorites, and I hope you will. It’s a lot like Frankenstein, but with castles, hybrids, dragons, roses, and a bit of romance and sea monsters.

Monstrous

Kymera was created by her father, with a mostly human body with added raven’s wings, cat eyes and claws, and a serpent’s  tail (with three stinging barbs). Her purpose is to rescue the girls of Bryre, who are all ill and dying thanks to the curse of a wizard. But when a human boy spots her on one of her nightly trips, Kymera befriends him. But the dark secrets he knows will make her never the same again…

Ravenous

Greta, one of the girls who was saved from the wizard’s curse, has a problem. Her brother Hans has been kidnapped by a cannibalistic witch! To save him, she must find the famed Cornucopia, a neverending source of food, and give it to the witch. Can she complete the quest in time to rescue her brother?

 

I highly recommend this book! Also, if you look at the back cover of Ravenous…
