Review: Ascend by Amanda Hocking


The Book:
Ascend is the third and last book in Trylle Trilogy, written by Amanda Hocking. Which became known when she succeeded with her self-publishing books.

First book is called Switched, second book Torn. Both books, I have already read, and you can see link for my reviews in the bottom :)

If you have not read the first and second book, you need to do that before reading this one ;) To be able to understand what is going on.

Source: Bought paperback myself

Summary: (From Goodreads)
The final book in the Trylle Trilogy..

With a war looming on the horizon, Wendy's fate seems sealed.But everything she sacrificed might be in vain if she can't save the ones she loves. Her whole life has been leading up to this, and it's all coming to an end.


My Opinion:
This book gets 5 out of 6 stars.. 

 But the series in total get 6 out of 6
Coz I got so into it. I fell in love with different guys during this story and could seriously not choose between them. And sometimes I got extremely frustrated xD haha

But I recommend this series. Coz you are doomed to fall in love, in at least one of the guys :P
I fell in love with several and seriously couldn´t choose. And get why it was so difficult for Wendy. But also understand her choice in the end :) Would probably chosen the same.
To bad this story is over. I will miss those cute guys :P <3

Loving Amanda Hocking´s writing. And will check out more of her books :)
Easy and well written books, most suitable for young adults in age 14-20. I think :) Or young souls like me.

Curious: That time I joined the Circus

A music-obsessed, slightly snarky New York City girl, Lexi is on her own. After making a huge mistake—and facing a terrible tragedy— Lexi has no choice but to track down her long-absent mother. Rumor has it that Lexi’s mom is somewhere in Florida with a traveling circus.

When Lexi arrives at her new, three-ring reality, her mom isn’t there…but her destiny might be. Surrounded by tigers, elephants, and trapeze artists, Lexi finds some surprising friends and an even more surprising chance at true love. She even lucks into a spot as the circus’s fortune teller, reading tarot cards and making predictions.

But then Lexi’s ex-best friend from home shows up, and suddenly it’s Lexi’s own future that’s thrown into question…

With humor, wisdom, and a dazzlingly fresh voice, this debut reminds us of the magic of circus tents, city lights, first kisses, last heartaches, and the importance of an excellent playlist.



Why:
First of all I need to admit.. I was drawn to this book because of the cover and its colors. Second because I like the title.. I know many people don`t like circus.. But I like them, as long as they threat the animals correct and with respect etc.. :)
I always thought it could be such an adventure working one season/year with a traveling circus, helping out taking care of the animals etc. :)
So when I read the summary. I knew I needed to read this book.
Though I promised myself to not buy that many books in 2013. I think I need to put this on my to buy list anyway.


The book will be released April 2013.

Teaser: Spectral

Spectral by Shannon Duffy 





My head began pounding and
the blood drained from my face.
If what I read in the book was true,
once I`d been through my quickening,
becoming all Spectral and all,
their powers
would become strengthened.






Summary: (From Goodreads)
Convinced she’s a part of the witness protection program, sixteen-year-old Jewel Rose is shuffled around the globe with her family like a pack of traveling gypsies. After arriving at lucky home twenty-seven, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy with magical powers claiming to be her guardian... and warning of imminent danger. Despite the obvious sparks between them, Jewel discovers a relationship is forbidden, and the more she learns about dark, brooding Roman, she begins to question who she can even believe—the family who raised her, or the supposed sworn protector who claims they’ve been lying to her all along.

As she struggles to uncover who her family has really been running from, she is forced to hide her birthmark that reveals who she is. With new realities surfacing, unexplained powers appearing, and two tempting boys vying for her heart, Jewel battles to learn who she can trust in an ever growing sea of lies, hoping she’ll make it through her seventeenth birthday alive.
