From the internationally bestselling author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist, a love story that unfolds across the rapidly changing face of a volatile world..

In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through. . . . Exit West follows these remarkable characters as they emerge into an alien and uncertain future, struggling to hold on to each other, to their past, to the very sense of who they are. Profoundly intimate and powerfully inventive, it tells an unforgettable story of love, loyalty, and courage that is both completely of our time and for all time."

This one sounds particularly intriguing. Seems like romance with some strange magical realism/alternate world going on. I like it.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Top Ten Tuesday – Positive First Impressions From 2016

December 6, 2016 Bonnie Top Ten Tuesday 4 Comments

There’s something thoroughly satisfying about reading an excellent book from a brand new-to-you author. I don’t tend to branch out as often as I’d like, so when I do and it’s a great first meet, it’s even more exciting for me. 2016 introduced me to many new authors but these ten were by far my favorite introductions.

three-half-stars

Following on the heels of her critically acclaimed prequel novels Dark Alchemy and Mercury Retrograde comes the first installment in Laura Bickle’s dark contemporary fantasy series, Nine of Stars, a Wildlands Novel
Winter has always been a deadly season in Temperance, but this time, there’s more to fear than just the cold…

As the daughter of an alchemist, Petra Dee has faced all manner of occult horrors—especially since her arrival in the small town of Temperance, Wyoming. But she can’t explain the creature now stalking the backcountry of Yellowstone, butchering wolves and leaving only their skins behind in the snow. Rumors surface of the return of Skinflint Jack, a nineteenth-century wraith that kills in fulfillment of an ancient bargain.

The new sheriff in town, Owen Rutherford, isn’t helping matters. He’s a dangerously haunted man on the trail of both an unsolved case and a fresh kill—a bizarre murder leading him right to Petra’s partner Gabriel. And while Gabe once had little to fear from the mortal world, he’s all too human now. This time, when violence hits close to home, there are no magical solutions.
It’s up to Petra and her coyote sidekick Sig to get ahead of both Owen and the unnatural being hunting them all—before the trail turns deathly cold.

grey-review

*spoilers from the first two installments*

“There was a man, back in 1861. He came to be known as Skinflint Jack, the Jack of Harts.”

Petra Dee may be accustomed to the magical happenings in Temperance, Wyoming, but after the re-appearance of a man who was transformed through alchemy into a formidable creature in the 1800s, she knows she’s the only one that would be capable of overcoming him. Destroying an 18th century monster isn’t the only thing troubling Petra these days though. Gabe is trying to both acclimate to being mortal once again and staying under the radar of the local authorities after Sal’s disappearance, Sal’s cousin being the sheriff and all. Petra is dealing with some health issues of her own which has her adjusting plans for her future. But when the wolves of Yellowstone are viciously attacked and Petra’s work colleague is left hospitalized after going to investigate, she knows that no one will have much of a future if this danger is left to roam.

“We all have our dark sides, I guess,” Gabe said, taking a swig of his beer.
“Yeah. And sometimes, the darkness finds us.”

Combining both ordinary and mystical mysteries, life is never dull for Petra Dee. I thoroughly enjoyed the complexity of the mystery behind the Luneria, the alchemical tree of life, but after its destruction in Mercury Retrograde it seemed as if that storyline had finished. I was pleased to see it reintroduced in this installment, albeit in an extremely unsettling way. The death of Sal didn’t mean the end of the mysterious Rutherford family either. Temperance, Wyoming is, suffice it to say, a most enigmatic and peculiar town.

I’ve seen Nine of Stars marketed as both a brand new series and the third of the continued Dark Alchemy series. While I can see it working as a brand new start, the “prequel” novels as they’re being referred to, I feel, are an integral part of giving you the necessary context behind these characters. Whether you start here or with Dark Alchemy, Bickle still manages to properly introduce you to a world of magic and mystery which also incorporates Native American folklore that will appeal to any fantasy fan. There are no supernatural creatures in these stories, just by-products of alchemical experiments, the “magical process of transformation, creation, or combination,” a subject that has clearly been researched extensively by the author. Nine of Stars possessed an ending that was extremely abrupt that felt more like a chapter end than a story end but I am still eager for more Petra Dee.

Picture Book Month Recap: November 2016

December 2, 2016 Bonnie Picture Books 6 Comments

I don’t typically read/review picture books but I read a ton of them in the month of November and I just wanted to share my adventure. I blame the Goodreads Choice Awards even though it was actually Picture Book Month so it ended up being very fitting. When the nominees were announced and I had ended up reading almost nothing from any category, I decided that I would try to knock out some that had been on my TBR. But then I started thinking it was a lost cause and I wouldn’t complete near as many as I wanted to before the winners were announced. But wait. PICTURE BOOKS. I could read alllllll the nominees from the picture book category!

 photo jhsfp_zpsawq5idrd.gif

My book bestie and I started off with a single one, Ida, Always, and our addiction only grew from there. We ended off the month having read a total of 80 picture books. We spent a fun Sunday sitting in the library kids section (in one of those midget chairs) and at one point we were asked if we were “planning for the future.”

 photo tumblr_mmihkn3PkE1spiuxqo1_500_zps8icxwkwe.gif

No, I may not have children in the appropriate age group for picture books anymore but dammit, adults can still enjoy them! There were an incredible amount of books with beautiful illustrations and the most amazing messages that can be appreciated by children and adults alike.

Here is the full list:

We read about everything from imaginary friends to imaginary worlds, polar bears to panda bears, dancing cats, square cats, fluffy cats, and a fair share of penguins. Goblins, monsters, alligators, worms, raccoons, and even fat little ponies. There were books about seasons, about gardens, pirates, peacocks, and moose (oh my?)

It’d be impossible to choose a favorite out of 80 books but here are a few noteworthy titles: Ida, Always made me cry, The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home made me laugh, The Heart and the Bottle had the most, well, heart, Lost and Found made me want my own penguin friend, When Green Becomes Tomatoes was a gorgeous collection of poetry fit even for kids, A Child of Books had the best illustrations (although all of Jeffers’ illustrated books are amazing; I read a total of 12, written and/or illustrated), and Pardon Me! had the most shocking and unexpected ending (in a sorta funny way).

So maybe you don’t have to read picture books for an entire month like I did, but the majority of these were well worth the few minutes it took to read them. They took me on an enjoyable albeit quick adventure. Will I keep reading picture books? Absolutely. And when I’m stuck in my next book rut, I think a few picture books will definitely do the trick.

Books Read = 18

I can’t believe November is over. This year has been going crazy slow yet fast at the same time. After Thanksgiving, I took a week off from work just so I could sit at home and be my laziest self possible. I got a fair amount of reading (and listening) done so I consider it a success.

Book Review – The Hating Game: A Novel by Sally ThorneBest of the Month: The Hating Game: A Novel by Sally Thorne ★★★★★

This one was an unbelievable amount of fun. I rarely delve into contemporary romance but this one was a real treat and came at a time when I needed something fun.

Least Favorite: My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout ★★
I checked this one out from the library on a whim having seen this authors name around before. Just wasn’t my thing.

Release Day Feature + #Giveaway! Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Biggest Surprise(s): Heartless by Marissa Meyer ★★★★
After being left less than impressed with Winter, I was a bit hesitant to get my hopes up over this one. Pleasantly surprised to say the least.

Book Tour Review – The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #1) by Erika Johansen


Biggest Disappointment: The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen ★★½

I had high hopes for this one for a while but kept pushing it off because of all the hype about it. Deciding to finally do a binge read of the entire trilogy now that all installments are out but after the first book I’m rethinking things.

Waiting on Wednesday – The Wanderers by Meg Howrey

Waiting on Wednesday – The Wanderers by Meg HowreyThe Wanderers by Meg Howrey
Published by G.P. Putnam's Sons on March 14th 2017
Pages: 384
Genres: Sci-fi
Format: Hardcover
Amazon|B&N|Book Depository
Goodreads

Station Eleven meets The Martian in this brilliantly inventive novel about three astronauts training for the first-ever mission to Mars, an experience that will push the boundary between real and unreal, test their relationships, and leave each of them—and their families—changed forever.

In four years Prime Space will put the first humans on Mars. Helen Kane, Yoshi Tanaka, and Sergei Kuznetsov must prove they’re the crew for the job by spending seventeen months in the most realistic simulation every created.

Retired from NASA, Helen had not trained for irrelevance. It is nobody’s fault that the best of her exists in space, but her daughter can’t help placing blame. The MarsNOW mission is Helen’s last chance to return to the only place she’s ever truly felt at home. For Yoshi, it’s an opportunity to prove himself worthy of the wife he has loved absolutely, if not quite rightly. Sergei is willing to spend seventeen months in a tin can if it means travelling to Mars. He will at least be tested past the point of exhaustion, and this is the example he will set for his sons.

As the days turn into months the line between what is real and unreal becomes blurred, and the astronauts learn that the complications of inner space are no less fraught than those of outer space. The Wanderers gets at the desire behind all exploration: the longing for discovery and the great search to understand the human heart.

four-stars

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.
The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

style-3 (3) review

“What a difference a day makes.”

Natasha possesses a scientific and mathematical mind that believes in finding solutions. Her current problem that requires one: her family are undocumented immigrants from Jamaica and she’s being forced to return to the country of her birth that night. Daniel is a poet and believes wholeheartedly in fate. His Korean immigrant parents expect him to attend an Ivy League school, become a doctor, and marry a nice Korean girl. Neither Natasha nor Daniel like the looks of the futures that have been mapped out for them. When the two cross paths and end up spending what Natasha believes to be their last day together (which Daniel is unaware of), their chemistry is undeniable. Whether it’s because of Daniel’s belief in fate or Natasha’s belief in chance, their budding romance is certain. But with only a guarantee of a single day, is a happy ending even possible?

‘We’re kindling amid lightning strikes. A lit match and dry wood. Fire Danger signs and a forest waiting to be burned.’

This story belongs to more than just Natasha and Daniel, although they are the stars of the show. We’re given a behind the scenes look at all the puzzle pieces that had to fall in to place in order for everything to happen just as it did. Not just what happens to Natasha and Daniel, but how their presence impacted the others that they crossed paths with. We see how the guard, Irene, causes Natasha to miss an important appointment but inevitably ends up saving Irene. We see how a near miss with a drunk driver results in changed circumstances for another. We see how a broken down train sets Daniel on a path he otherwise wouldn’t have found himself on. Whether or not this is a vote towards the possibility of fate, that’s certainly up for the reader to decide.

“I didn’t know you this morning, and now I don’t remember not knowing you.”

Yoon has said that while this story isn’t autobiographical, it’s definitely inspired by her own personal love story which must be why this story seems to possess so much sentiment. While I’m not typically a fan of anything closely resembling insta-love, The Sun is Also a Star possesses a type of insta-love that I can get behind. These two characters somehow manage to build a meaningful relationship with one another that was not only believable but something to aspire to, albeit in approximately 12 hours. Suspending your disbelief may be a slight requirement but it’s well worth it for romantics and cynics alike.

“Maybe he was just saying that we should live in the moment. As if today is all we have.”
