Graceling : review

Kristin Cashore

Graceling is a fantasy book with action and romance. It is in a world where people have Graces. They are skills that can make a person very good at something. For example cooking or climbing trees. These people with Graces can be recognized for their eyes are different color from each other. If you would have a child that turns out to be graced she/he will be taken to the king. If the graced person is useful the king he will keep them, if not they will be sent home.
The book follows around the main character Katsa. She is Graced with killing. As the kings niece she is forced to work for him, by killing anyone he sends her to kill. But can she stand this forever? What happens when she meets Po? What will happen to her when she finds out a new truth about her Grace?

Graceling is simply one of my favorite books. Kristin Cashore can make all the events in the books seem so lively. I adore her writing style, that grabs any reader with it into this amazing world she has created.

Graceling is a New York times bestseller and has a lot of praise from different authors.

Kristin has also written two companion novels to Graceling
called Fire and Bitterblue.


Book Buying Habits

I thought it was only appropriate to start of this blog on book buying habits.

What kind of books do you read?

I buy mostly YA (young adult) books.

What would be the perfect book?

A fiction YA book with romance and loads of action.

Where do you buy your books from?

I usually order all my books online (amazon, book depository...). Then I buy them when I visit USA or England since where I live they do not have too much of books in English.

How much books do you own?

Maybe around 150.

Where do you read?

Everywhere! I take the book I am reading at the time everywhere I go, even if I know I won't read it there. But you never know...

How did you start on reading (in the beginning)?

My whole family reads loads! Especially my brother. I started to get into reading after reading some Roald Dahl books when I was small but especially after reading the Harry Potters. I absolutely loved them, still my favorite series.



The Start of Booksonal

Dear you,

I started this blog to write about books. Shocker, since the title is there...
Anyway, so as you can assume I love reading books. I don't have that many, but I read loads. I decided to make a blog for writing about them. About what I have read, how much I loved them (if I even liked them), overall about books and I'll maybe make some book tags.

I'll try to post every Saturday, but probably I will be delayed sometimes...
So hope you will like my posts,
and as always read on.
