Hey guys! This is going to be a very different post then what I usually do. This post is going to be a book vs. book type of thing (as I said in the title) I am going to compare 2 books to one another, and say stuff i liked and stuff I didn’t. If you liked one, but haven’t read the other, you should totally check them out! If you haven’t heard of any of them, well, here are some book recommendations!
The first one is: City of Bones VS. Throne of Glass!
I love both of these books and their series. Both of these books were very unique in their own way. The characters in both of these books are so strong, brave, and VERY reckless in my opinion.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare: 15 year old Clary Fray’s life changes suddenly when her mother is kidnapped by Valentine. Clary is pulled into Jace’s world of demons when she herself, is attacked by demons. She figures out the truth about herself. She is a shadowhunter. Half human, half angel. So is Jace. Their job is to rid the human world of demons. Clary is determined to get her mother back at whatever cost. But is there a price that is to high?
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: Celeana Sardothien is assassin. One of the most dangerous. After 1 year of being punished in Endovier, she is given a choice when she is dragged in front of Crown Prince Dorian. She can either go back to the salt mines of Endovier or compete in a contest, to find the king’s champion. If she kills her opponents she will be Champion. If not… she will be dead anyway. If she wins she will be granted freedom after 4 years. When a contestant turns up dead, quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who’s behind these deaths before she becomes the victim?
As I said before, I love both of these books. Jace and Celeana remind me of each other with their snarky, funny remarks. Both of these books are fantastic and you should totally read both!
Our next book vs. book will be…(Drumroll please…) Unraveling VS. Snow like Ashes!
These books were amazing! So very different, but both Janelle and Meira are faced with difficult choices. They face them though, knowing its for the right reasons. They are very brave, and funny! I just love them! And of course, they have their fair share of boy trouble.
Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris: Janelle Tenner knows what its like having responsibility. Her mom is bipolar, her dad a hardworking FBI agent. She has to balance schoolwork, friends, and her little brother Jared. But that was all before she died. And brought back by the mysterious Ben Michaels. Faced with all of this, she finds a clock counting down the end of the world, and has to find a way to save the planet. Now thats what I call responsibility.
Snow like Ashes by Sara Raasch: 16 years ago Winter was conquered. Winter’s only hope is the eight survivors who managed to escape. They lie in waiting, hoping for the right moment to steal back Winter’s magic, and rebuild their once beautiful kingdom. Meira has lived her entire life on the run. Orphaned when she was very young, she was brought up by the one of Winter’s generals, Sir. She is training to be a warrior, and help save her kingdom. When the refugees find out a location of one half of Winter’s magic locket, Meira decides to go after it herself. She gets it and returns to her fellow survivors, but thats not the last of it. She is thrust right into a world of evil, and black magic. Meira is also in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather, put that in with all the other messed up things in her life, plus she finds out a sercret. A very life-changing one.
These books are fantastic, and kinda heartbreaking. Both Janelle and Meira have to give up so much for the sake of their friends and family, and in Meira’s case, her kingdom.
Next up is… Girl of Fire and Thorns VS. The Young Elites
I would usually say both of these characters are inspiring, but Adelina isn’t. She is very confused, and her power is all darkness. She was lead down the wrong path. Elisa though, she is kinda inspiring. In the beginning, I was a bit uncertain, but it truly is a great book! Both of them are!
Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson: “Once a century a person is chosen for greatness. – Girl of Fire and Thorns.
Elisa is the chosen one. She doubts it though, and on her 16th birthday, she is the wife of a king, who needs a savior, not a failure. So many seek her,enemies, friends, dangerous creatures. She can save so many people. She has the power of the chosen one. Only if she doesn’t die young though. Most of the chosen do.
The young Elites by Marie Lu: A decade ago, a deadly illness swept through her land. The black fever had her under its grasp, but she survived, but at a cost. Her black hear turned silver, her lashes when pale, and now where her left eye once was, is a scar. Most of the people who survived are rumored to have more than just strange markings. They are rumored to have powers. Adelina has powers that don’t belong in this world. They are turning her to the darkness. Adelina is filled with vengeance, and nothing will stop her from having her revenge.
These characters are very alluring. I literally could not put either of these books down, I just had to keep reading!
I hope you enjoyed all the recommendations! I had fun doing them to! Also remember to check out Laura’s Blog! It really is good!
