Mini Reviews: City Of Heavenly Fire & The Stand


Hello bookworms!!

Once again I am here with a late post. This is also the last post of blogmas. I think next year I am going to do blogmas like it is supposed to be done and only go through December 25th that way I can take a little bit of a break because I have been struggling to post the last few days. Anyways today I have a couple of reviews to share. These are the last reviews of the year. I did reread a couple of books but I’m not going to write another review for those. Ok enough blabbing let’s get to those reviews shall we.

City of Heavenly Fire

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

****.5 (4.5 stars)

I am glad Erin and I have finally finished reading this series. I enjoyed it enough to want to keep reading to find out what happened but it was definitely drug out. This is a 6-book series and I personally think it could have easily been cut back to a trilogy. With that said I have to say this last book was probably the best of all of them. There was a lot happening in this book right from the very beginning. It’s fast paced and action packed. There were some things that happened in this book that I didn’t see coming and some things I did. And something pulled at my heartstrings. I’m not 100% happy with how things wrapped up but at the same time it’s a good ending for a lead up to the next books. Overall I enjoyed some parts of this series and was annoyed by others but I am looking forward to continuing on with the next books in this world.

The Stand

The Stand by Stephen King

***** (5 stars)

This book took me by surprise. I went into it with no expectations really and to be honest it was a very intimidating book. I read the unabridged version so it was longer than the version he originally published. My copy was 1439 pages. Because of the sheer size of it I was kind of expecting to not enjoy it as much as everybody else did but I am happy to say that I really loved this book. It took me almost 2 months to read it but I loved it. In typical King fashion there is a lot of description and for the most part it works but I definitely think I would have preferred reading the original published version where it was cut down some because there were parts that I felt like we could have done without. Every time I put this book down I struggled to make myself pick it back up but once I started reading it again I didn’t want to put it down. I don’t know how to review this book without spoiling it so I am just going to leave it at you need to read this book. I know it’s a big book. I myself was very intimidated by it but I am so glad I took the plunge because I absolutely loved it. It’s for sure on my top 5 King list.
