November 2016 Wrap Up

1. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff




This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.


This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.
Pros: 
Unique storytelling design. 
Funny Characters and Dialogues. 
Ezra!!!! 

Cons:
There are some boring parts.  


2. The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera


In The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Milan Kundera tells the story of a young woman in love with a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing and one of his mistresses and her humbly faithful lover. This magnificent novel juxtaposes geographically distant places, brilliant and playful reflections, and a variety of styles to take its place as perhaps the major achievement of one of the world’s truly great writers.

Pros: 
Beautifully and Philosophically Witten 
Diversity in Characters
Political Background 

Cons:
There are some boring parts.
As well as weird parts
Also Tereza for staying with Thomas. 


3. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas 


When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
 

Pros:
Based on Beauty and Beast (which is my favorite disney film)
Strong female character  
Great villain  
Hot romance 
Fast pacing and action pack


4. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

*Warning: Spoilers*

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
 

Pros: 
Rhysand (from loving Tamlin to being Tamlin who)
CHAPTER 55!!! (with the table and the paint)
ROMANCE FILLED (so much ships  Cassian/Nesta,  Azriel/Mor, & Lucien/Elain) 
A stronger and more mature Feyre (Beyonce will be proud girl!)
Cassian and Azriel (and where to find them cause I need me some strong guys)
