Mini Reviews!

I read a lot of novellas, so I’m going to try to do a few posts like this when I can, just to give my thoughts on them. They are just going to be short, so there will be a few novellas at once!

Iron’s Prophecy (Iron Fey #4.5)

by Julie Kagawa

Meghan Chase is finally getting used to being the Iron Queen, ruler of the Iron Fey. Her life may be strange, but with former Winter prince Ash by her side at last, she wouldn’t have it any other way.

But when they travel to the Summer and Winter courts’ gathering for Elysium, the oracle from Meghan’s past returns with a dire prophecy: “What you carry will either unite the courts, or it will destroy them.” Now Meghan faces a devastating choice that may determine the future of all fey—and her and Ash’s unborn child…

My Thoughts: I kind of wish that I had read this before I read The Lost Prince, unfortunately I hadn’t gotten it by the time I got The Lost Prince and I couldn’t help but dive in to it as soon as possible. If you can read it first, I definitely recommend that you do. This explains a lot of the mystery and questions I had about why no one wanted Ethan and Kerrian to meet. It’s a very good read!

The Prince (The Selection #1.5)

by Kiera Cass

Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection…

Before Aspen broke America’s heart…

There was another girl in Prince Maxon’s life…

My Thoughts: I’m pretty much in love with Prince Maxon, even more so after reading this. I want America to end up with him, not Aspen. I really liked this glimpse into his life before the selection happened. And to see his thoughts on America when they first meet and she basically tells him off. It was great. This is a very cute read!

Crossing the Line (Pushing the Limits #1.5)

by Katie McGarry

Lila McCormick, Echo’s best friend from Pushing the Limits, first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters—or that she’d fall for the boy she’s only seen once. Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he’s never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila’s forgiveness—and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.

My Thoughts: I love Katie McGarry’s writing. Even in such a short story she makes me love the characters and become emotionally attached to them! Lila and Lincoln are so cute together. I have to read everything by Katie now, she just does an amazing job putting so many feels into the story. I cried reading this and it’s only 67 pages long. That is how good she is!

  1. I love mini reviews! And I like the little novellas and short stories that accompany many a series these days. Too bad I haven’t read ANY of these series, so I can’t appreciate any of these novellas (yet?). It seems as though you enjoyed them all, though, which is a good sign. Sometimes they’re less than satisfying (*ahem* Delirium *ahem*).

    • I haven’t read Delirium at all yet.. lol *blushes* I want to and will get to it! Eventually! I’m slowly working through my pile of unread books..lol

      I also really love novellas, it’s always nice to get a little taste of something extra between the books! You should read some of these ones, they are really good! All are for books I’ve loved!

      • Yeah, Delirium has just gotten more and more disappointing, though. The novellas were really good, but they were like… half the length they should have been. WAY too short for $3 each. I say there’s no hurry in you reading that series, lol.

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever read a novella actually. But they definitely seem to be a popular thing these days so I might end up trying one out! Especially since it seems like you enjoyed most of these (and one even made you cry! That must be good writing).

    • I love reading novellas because I’m always craving more between books, so they are great! Throne of Glass is a book that actually has four novellas before you even start it! But they are all really good soo.. It’s kind of like they all make one book, so I got to enjoy more of the authors writing for a longer time!

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
