Book Review: With Pride

Book Title: With Pride
Author: Megan Derr

“Always he was second or third choice. Just once he wanted to be someone’s first choice. He wanted to be offered, accepted, with pride. Not from obligation or with resignation. He wanted to be a preference, not simply the least disappointing of limited options.”
Kristof from With Pride by Megan Derr

Final Verdict: A great quick read, with an amazing new world, characters that will engage you, and a romance you can root for.

Book Review: Lireal and Abhorsen

Book Title: Lireal and Abhorsen (books two and three in the Old Kingdom trilogy)
Author: Garth Nix

The Ninth was strong
and fought with might,
But lone Orannis
was put out of the light,
Broken in two
and buried under hill,
Forever to lie there,
wishing us ill.”
Abhorsen by Garth Nix.

Final Verdict: These books are well worth the read, just make sure to push through the chapters that focus on Prince Sameth. You’ll be rewarded if you do.
