Red Queen Review

Red Queen (Red Queen Trilogy #1) by Victoria Aveyard (383 pages)

Manga pt.1

There are many things for readers to read [wow, redundant much?] Anyway, lots of people are Anime obsessed in my school/at my age. I love reading, which is why I prefer manga. It's somewhat like a book: black and white, on paper, etc. So, here are some of my favorite manga series!

Naruto fan for life! I practically grew up reading & watching this. WARNING: This whole series takes FOREVER to finish, it's a commitment. Basically, this is about a ninja named Naruto. He's an orphan, you'll learn more about his circumstances later. He aspires to be the next Hokage (Ninja president of sorts), he meets friends, fights evil people. It finished a few months ago.

This manga is called Kaichou wa Maid-Sama, which I think translates to "The President is a Maid." She's not like a maid that cleans your house and stuff. She works at a cafe to pay off the debt her father left to her family. She's your feminist, strong, independent woman. She eventually learns more about herself/becomes a better person with the help of her classmate Usui. 

Ouran High School Host Club revolves around a girl name Haruhi who has to pretend to be a guy to get a full scholarship to an elite school. But, on her first day, she breaks an expensive vase. Since she's poor, she can't pay it with money. To pay her debt, Haruhi  joins the Host Club (A group that consists of rich good-looking guys, that entertains women. Sounds kind of sketchy but it's totally PG/PG-13.) 

Apprentice Review

My first order of business is to tell you:
-The First book is $0.99 (kindle) on Amazon
-Romance that may piss you off, the author personally warned me about this. The gif below summarizes the relationships.

Apprentice (Black Mage #2)
by Rachel E. Carter
Read: eARC
Publishing: Astrea Press 2/17/15

          She survived a trial year at the Academy, but that was just the easy part…
          Now sixteen-year-old Ryiah is an apprentice in Combat, her school’s most notorious faction of magic. When she finishes she will be a mage, but in order to do so she has to survive four years with a training master she hates and her old nemesis, Priscilla. To make matters worse the unwanted attraction Ry feels for her sometimes-friend-sometimes-rival Prince Darren is at an all time high –even though he is betrothed to the very girl she can’t stand.
          Really, the only bright spot to Ryiah’s new life is the time she spends with her friends, including an older apprentice named Ian, who she finds herself thinking about quite often.
          Just when things start to get comfortable they take a turn for the worse. An apprentice is killed in a rebel attack and several mages end up dead. Unwittingly, the apprentices find themselves in the midst of a budding unrest between Jerar and its northern neighbor, Caltoth. For Ryiah the impending conflict means many things, but as her apprenticeship draws to a close she finds her biggest problem at home.
          Unfortunately for her, Darren’s not going anywhere.

Throne of Glass Review

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1)
by Sarah J. Maas
Publishing: Bloomsbury USA Children's 1/2/12
          After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. 
          Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. 
          Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. 
          Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.
