Review on every book I have thoughts on ✨
The four winds
This book strid so many emotions in me through out the book 𝘐 𝘩ave h𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘨𝘰𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘯𝘰𝘺𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘴.
These mundane relations these mundane actions and their mundane consequences are what I love the most, it describes an era that most of us has over looked and moved on. But many people the hole left by thoes 5 years will be their forever.
This is the first time I read about this particular time period this was a heart wrenching story of a warrior', a woman, who fought with all she had for the ones she loved.

Storyline- 4.5 🌟
The story follows a girl and a boy who fell in love before they even knew what love is. After their separation as time goes by they realise the depth of their feeling the emotion they feel for each other.
Its a story of falling in love and staying in love, to love someone so deep that you would follow them to whatever end, even if the only thing left is their memory.
I liked the plot of it alot, it makes you think and feel, the characters were pretty good, but the writing felt a lot simpler. I would say...there were many good quotes but still the writing didn’t stand out much to me until the very end. However nonetheless I love the story, it made me cry towards the end and made me emotional. Its the kind of story that may not stand out as much as other but will stick with you for a very long time. A timeless tale, you can say it's a classic story of Love and tragedy and everything in between.
Spin the Dawn
I really enjoyed this fantasy novel. The story was and so were the characters.
It was fast-paced and was easy and quick to read. It was the first book in the Blood of Stars duology. and i am looking forward to read the sequel Unravel the Dusk,which comes out on 7th of July 2020.
The characters were well written. There was this character, this Enchanters which i really liked. And there were a King and to be Queen who seemed as the main villain of the story as the story progresses. The characters weren't super lovable in my opinion, but you will like them.
The world building was quit fast, there wasn't much info dumping but you will easily understand everything. The story was fast-paced.
The story has Magic and Demons and Enchanters and Kings and Queens.
Personally i really liked the magic system in this world .
The book starts with a preface that keeps you hook and craving for more.
Honestly the plot wasn't hard to understand, but there was this little mystery surrounding the the characters the interested me the most. The end of the plot wasn't shocking but, it wasn't something i guessed.
The writing style of the author was the one that impressed me the most, it wasn't complicated, it was simple but still catchy and enjoyable you won't get bored.
The romance in this book wasn't intense but kind of a sweet one. If i have to define the romance wasn't kind the what sarah j mass writes but kind f a smooth, not going too much in but feels sweet kind of romance. I liked it however.
"But I would give up the sun and the moon and stars if it meant saving him. Him the boy with no name and yet a thousand names. The boy whose hands are stained with the blood of the stars. The boy I love" -Elizabeth Lim, Spin the Dawn.
