My Review:

I’ve been dying to get my hands on this book right after I finished Ace of Shades. Ace of Shades was one of those books that left you in shock and you needed more answers instantly. King of Fools answers those questions but they come at a price.

This was a witty feminist read with a badass girl gang. That should have sold you right there but there is also a lot of underhanded backstabbing and so many twists that you’ll have whiplash. Amanda creates the perfect Girl gang without all the pettiness and this is definitely a GG that you want to join!

Overall, this was a solid sequel and it will leave you dying for the third book. This story was fantastic. Amanda knows how to create the perfect pace to set up that explosive ending. Fans will not be disappointed!!!

Pet Sematary- Stephen King

832795When Louis Creed & his family move from Chicago into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son–and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly cat.
The road in front of their home frequently claims the lives of neighborhood pets. Near their house, local children have created a cemetery for the dogs & cats killed by the steady stream of transports on the busy highway. Deeper in the woods lies another graveyard, an ancient Indian burial ground whose sinister properties Louis discovers when the family cat is killed.

*Arc Review* Ace of Shades- Amanda Foody

“Sometimes we’re not who we want to be because we’re supposed to be something else.”

I’m extremely grateful to Harlequin Teen for sending me a galley of this. Opinion is my own!!

I’m hoping that we don’t have to wait too long for book two. With an ending like this, I’m going to lose my mind and sleep with wonder. My jaw hit the floor many times while reading this one and I’m sure all of you had the same reactions. This book is that amazing!

What drew me in first was the cast of shady characters who were all dealing with sin in one way or another. How they all fed off of each other to gain strength to their own stories. It was brilliant.

The scene building was incredible. Writing about an area where gangs rule over one another in a Vegas-like place is no easy feat and Amanda pulls it off flawlessly. It still gives me goosebumps.

Love is not a strong enough word for how this book made me feel. It was richly mesmerizing and I can’t wait to hold a finished copy in my hands. It was beautiful!

My only problem was the made-up curse words. They were annoying. It was like when your phone autocorrects fuck to duck and you want to throw your phone into a pond. It was that frustrating. Can we please not go there anymore? Please!!?

Let’s get into the real squeal-worthy deal. One of my besties is in this book! His name is there plain as day and I couldn’t be happier for him!! Way to go, Justin!!

Would you bet your life for a chance to survive Sin City?
