Some of my many talents include making a mean box of Mac & Cheese, drawing stick figures, designing cute blog templates, and finding Waldo. I read and write MG and YA & I have a soft spot for love stories.

The Crown of Embers

The Crown of Embers - Rae Carson That feeling where you read a book that is sooooo good but the ending is a total CLIFFHANGER and the next book doesn't come out for months. Curse you Rae Carson!Gah. I just want to read the next one now. I liked this one so much better than the first. I think it helped that there was only one real love interest (Gotta love Hector!) I did feel like the ending was just a tad rushed - that some characters didn't act in ways that made complete sense because the author needed them to act that way (the Inveirnos, or however you spell that...). It also didn't make sense to me why she kept thinking she wouldn't be able to marry Hector, I mean, there didn't seem to be enough obstacles in that regard. He's rich, powerful, on her side, and sure her council wants her to marry another lord, but she's queen! She should be able to tell them off. Also, I probably wouldn't recommend this book to younger teens, since there's a lot of stuff that they'd need to be mature to handle.But! I was just so intrigued the entire book. I wanted to know what was going to happen. Can't wait for the final one in a couple of months.
