    This book wasn't awful, but it was rushed and weird. The characters are stereotypical and dull. The plot is rushed and forced. There is zero depth to this book. There's this world about which we know nothing in which women are chattel. They have no rights. They're not allowed to lea...

    "For every woman who has been told to sit down and be quiet... And who stood up anyway." It felt highly fitting to use the author's initial dedication to highlight the overall theme ofGrace and Furyrather than a quote from the ARC, because GIRL POWER DUH. Seriously, this is femi...

    ARC provided by Little, Brown in exchange for an honest review. ?Serina and Nomi were like any other daughters in the cold, industrial town of Lanos. But Serina had her beauty. And Nomi had her secret.? I didn?t know much about this book going in. I didn?t even read t...

    Ohhh I am HERE for these plot twists! I can't even say how hard it is to find books that surprise me these days. (I read too much ok and I cannot stop.) And this had not one, but TWO, twists that had me smiling rather deviously. I mean, it's not a shock-your-socks-off twist but the kin...

    Totally addictive fantasy read. I loved both of these Main characters so much, and admired their strength through such hardships. Wish I didn?t have to wait so long for book two haha. P.S. I just read this for the second time and loved it even more than the first. It?s a really ...

    This book has been fairly hyped lately, mainly for its claims as a staunchly feminist YA fantasy. You guys already know I?m here for all the feminist reads, so I was pretty excited to pick this one up. When it comes to ARCs, I usually like to go in without knowing much about the stor...

    I did not think I would finish this book?it recycles so much from previously written fantasy books that I was certain it would bore me to death. But, to my surprise, it ended up not being too mediocre. That?s mostly because of the character and story developments. Nomi and S...

    I'm just picking the real cover because I got two different covers from Fairyloot and Owlcrate and they are in the trade in box! And yes, the same book in the same month! Sigh! I might add the box pics later! I told myself that after cancer treatment I wasn't going to waste...

    #BookTubeAthon Day 7, Book 6. Challenge: Read a book with a beautiful spine. I liked the overall message of this book. About women standing up for their rights and coming together whilst doing so. The plot, however, felt flimsy to me. It?s only 310 pages, but I?m so tired ...

    *cinematic jaw-drop* Omg?????? Omg!!!!!!!! What just happened?????? What. In. The. Hell. Just. Happened??? I fucking adored this book and omg. I can?t function rn. What the fuckkkkkkkk! Review to come while I try to recover from that wild cliffhanger ending... ???????...

    4.5 stars! ?For every woman who has been told to sit down and be quiet... And who stood up anyway.? You know, I must be reading a different book from everyone else. Because while everyone hated this book, I ended up friggin loving it!! And I almost let a huge amount of ...

    Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart is the first book of the young adult fantasyGrace and Fury series. So yes, being the first book of a fantasy story this one will leave you with a cliffhanger to lead into the later books for the series. I normally find the advertising description...

    What a way to complete my reading challenge for 2018! I am in love. I need the second book now. I'm not going to lie, I kind of predicted a lot of it, but it had so many elements of what I love in books, and there was so much GIRL POWER! 10s 10s 10s across the board! Full ...

    Grace and Fury is a feminist fantasy that draws similarities to The Selection, The Belles, The Handmaid's Tale, Red Queen, and even The Valiant. Set in a world where women don't have any rights, you are either a factory worker, servant, or you get married. It's even illegal fo...

    I received this eARC from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. I'm so unbelievably shook. "It isn't a choice when you don't have the freedom to say no. A yes doesn't mean the ...

    ?4.5 stars? I really wasn?t expecting to love this book quite so much, and I?m so pleasantly surprised by how entirely captivated I was reading it. It?s not that I thought I wouldn?t like it, it's just that I couldn?t have predicted quite how much I truly do love it. Thi...

    Grace and Fury is a wonderful mix of The Hunger Games and The Selection ? In a world ruled by men, women are forbidden to read or even own books. Nomi Tessaro has rebelled and learned how to read from her brother, but she must keep it a secret. Serina chose not to break the law, know...

    3,5 stars I hated it in the beginning (the first 3-4 chapters), but it got good really fast. The last 10 chapters ended in plot twists, so I could barely lift my eyes from the pages. A nice and short read and I'm actually eager to read the sequel(s?). ...

    Girl Power!!! First, I want to start by saying that I truly didn't think I would love this book as much as I did. I am so glad I picked this one up to read, I was completely captivated! What would you do if you lived in a world where women had no rights? Well, sisters Serina and...

    eh. rtc or never ...

    THAT ENDING THOUGH ...

    I just can't decide who was more stupid between these 2. No character development (mentally). Things happened too fast. I just can't accept someone being good in fights only in 2 pages, I need to see and feel the proof. Boring characters. Very superficial both "heroines". I felt ...

    WOW! I can't believe I waited so long to read this book! I was drawn in from page 1! I love the dynamics with the sisters. I was TERRIFIED that during the story they would start to hate each other or want to work against each other! I'm so glad they kept FIGHTING to get to each othe...

    Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart is the first book of the young adult fantasyGrace and Fury series. So yes, being the first book of a fantasy story this one will leave you with a cliffhanger to lead into the later books for the series. I normally find the advertising description...

    What a way to complete my reading challenge for 2018! I am in love. I need the second book now. I'm not going to lie, I kind of predicted a lot of it, but it had so many elements of what I love in books, and there was so much GIRL POWER! 10s 10s 10s across the board! Full ...

    Grace and Fury is a feminist fantasy that draws similarities to The Selection, The Belles, The Handmaid's Tale, Red Queen, and even The Valiant. Set in a world where women don't have any rights, you are either a factory worker, servant, or you get married. It's even illegal fo...

    Available to first 500 readers on Netgalley as of 5/8/18! So glad I got a copy, can't wait to read it! I love fantasy with a strong feminist narrative. ...

    I received this eARC from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. I'm so unbelievably shook. "It isn't a choice when you don't have the freedom to say no. A yes doesn't mean the ...

    ?4.5 stars? I really wasn?t expecting to love this book quite so much, and I?m so pleasantly surprised by how entirely captivated I was reading it. It?s not that I thought I wouldn?t like it, it's just that I couldn?t have predicted quite how much I truly do love it. Thi...

    Grace and Fury is a wonderful mix of The Hunger Games and The Selection ? In a world ruled by men, women are forbidden to read or even own books. Nomi Tessaro has rebelled and learned how to read from her brother, but she must keep it a secret. Serina chose not to break the law, know...

    3,5 stars I hated it in the beginning (the first 3-4 chapters), but it got good really fast. The last 10 chapters ended in plot twists, so I could barely lift my eyes from the pages. A nice and short read and I'm actually eager to read the sequel(s?). ...

    Girl Power!!! First, I want to start by saying that I truly didn't think I would love this book as much as I did. I am so glad I picked this one up to read, I was completely captivated! What would you do if you lived in a world where women had no rights? Well, sisters Serina and...

    eh. rtc or never ...

    THAT ENDING THOUGH ...

    I just can't decide who was more stupid between these 2. No character development (mentally). Things happened too fast. I just can't accept someone being good in fights only in 2 pages, I need to see and feel the proof. Boring characters. Very superficial both "heroines". I felt ...

    "For every woman who has been told to sit down and be quiet... And who stood up anyway." This is the first novel in a new feminist fantasy series, so of course I was so excited to read this book! Unfortunately I was a little disappointed. I did really enjoy reading it, but I did hav...

    Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart is the first book of the young adult fantasyGrace and Fury series. So yes, being the first book of a fantasy story this one will leave you with a cliffhanger to lead into the later books for the series. I normally find the advertising description...

    What a way to complete my reading challenge for 2018! I am in love. I need the second book now. I'm not going to lie, I kind of predicted a lot of it, but it had so many elements of what I love in books, and there was so much GIRL POWER! 10s 10s 10s across the board! Full ...

    Grace and Fury is a feminist fantasy that draws similarities to The Selection, The Belles, The Handmaid's Tale, Red Queen, and even The Valiant. Set in a world where women don't have any rights, you are either a factory worker, servant, or you get married. It's even illegal fo...

    Available to first 500 readers on Netgalley as of 5/8/18! So glad I got a copy, can't wait to read it! I love fantasy with a strong feminist narrative. ...

    I received this eARC from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. I'm so unbelievably shook. "It isn't a choice when you don't have the freedom to say no. A yes doesn't mean the ...

    ?4.5 stars? I really wasn?t expecting to love this book quite so much, and I?m so pleasantly surprised by how entirely captivated I was reading it. It?s not that I thought I wouldn?t like it, it's just that I couldn?t have predicted quite how much I truly do love it. Thi...

    Grace and Fury is a wonderful mix of The Hunger Games and The Selection ? In a world ruled by men, women are forbidden to read or even own books. Nomi Tessaro has rebelled and learned how to read from her brother, but she must keep it a secret. Serina chose not to break the law, know...

    3,5 stars I hated it in the beginning (the first 3-4 chapters), but it got good really fast. The last 10 chapters ended in plot twists, so I could barely lift my eyes from the pages. A nice and short read and I'm actually eager to read the sequel(s?). ...

    Girl Power!!! First, I want to start by saying that I truly didn't think I would love this book as much as I did. I am so glad I picked this one up to read, I was completely captivated! What would you do if you lived in a world where women had no rights? Well, sisters Serina and...

    eh. rtc or never ...

    THAT ENDING THOUGH ...

    I just can't decide who was more stupid between these 2. No character development (mentally). Things happened too fast. I just can't accept someone being good in fights only in 2 pages, I need to see and feel the proof. Boring characters. Very superficial both "heroines". I felt ...

    WOW! I can't believe I waited so long to read this book! I was drawn in from page 1! I love the dynamics with the sisters. I was TERRIFIED that during the story they would start to hate each other or want to work against each other! I'm so glad they kept FIGHTING to get to each othe...

    "-In all the stories, women give up everything. We are always supposed to give. We are never supposed to fight. Why do you think that is? -Because they're afraid of what will happen if we do." Rating: 5/5 stars. SYNOPSIS Where Nomi dreamed of rebellion and women's freedom, Serin...

    4.5 OKAY WOW!! I bought this book on a whim because the cover was pretty and I needed a book to read on my train ride in a few days and holy SHIT. I predicted the plot twist but it made me even more excited because I loved it. Wow this was SUCH a good book. ...

    DNF I?m not going to rate this. I got to page 129 but I just can?t finish this book. I am so frustrated with the characters, the plot, and the pacing. The world building is seriously lacking, the characters are so under developed, and the plot is a very clear mashup of books/sto...

    This book wasn't awful, but it was rushed and weird. The characters are stereotypical and dull. The plot is rushed and forced. There is zero depth to this book. There's this world about which we know nothing in which women are chattel. They have no rights. They're not allowed to lea...

    Ohhh I am HERE for these plot twists! I can't even say how hard it is to find books that surprise me these days. (I read too much ok and I cannot stop.) And this had not one, but TWO, twists that had me smiling rather deviously. I mean, it's not a shock-your-socks-off twist but the kin...

    This book has been fairly hyped lately, mainly for its claims as a staunchly feminist YA fantasy. You guys already know I?m here for all the feminist reads, so I was pretty excited to pick this one up. When it comes to ARCs, I usually like to go in without knowing much about the stor...

    I'm just picking the real cover because I got two different covers from Fairyloot and Owlcrate and they are in the trade in box! And yes, the same book in the same month! Sigh! I might add the box pics later! I told myself that after cancer treatment I wasn't going to waste...

    #BookTubeAthon Day 7, Book 6. Challenge: Read a book with a beautiful spine. I liked the overall message of this book. About women standing up for their rights and coming together whilst doing so. The plot, however, felt flimsy to me. It?s only 310 pages, but I?m so tired ...

    *cinematic jaw-drop* Omg?????? Omg!!!!!!!! What just happened?????? What. In. The. Hell. Just. Happened??? I fucking adored this book and omg. I can?t function rn. What the fuckkkkkkkk! Review to come while I try to recover from that wild cliffhanger ending... ???????...

    4.5 stars! ?For every woman who has been told to sit down and be quiet... And who stood up anyway.? You know, I must be reading a different book from everyone else. Because while everyone hated this book, I ended up friggin loving it!! And I almost let a huge amount of ...

    "For every woman who has been told to sit down and be quiet... And who stood up anyway." This is the first novel in a new feminist fantasy series, so of course I was so excited to read this book! Unfortunately I was a little disappointed. I did really enjoy reading it, but I did hav...

    Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart is the first book of the young adult fantasyGrace and Fury series. So yes, being the first book of a fantasy story this one will leave you with a cliffhanger to lead into the later books for the series. I normally find the advertising description...

    What a way to complete my reading challenge for 2018! I am in love. I need the second book now. I'm not going to lie, I kind of predicted a lot of it, but it had so many elements of what I love in books, and there was so much GIRL POWER! 10s 10s 10s across the board! Full ...

    Grace and Fury is a feminist fantasy that draws similarities to The Selection, The Belles, The Handmaid's Tale, Red Queen, and even The Valiant. Set in a world where women don't have any rights, you are either a factory worker, servant, or you get married. It's even illegal fo...

    Available to first 500 readers on Netgalley as of 5/8/18! So glad I got a copy, can't wait to read it! I love fantasy with a strong feminist narrative. ...

    I received this eARC from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. I'm so unbelievably shook. "It isn't a choice when you don't have the freedom to say no. A yes doesn't mean the ...

    ?4.5 stars? I really wasn?t expecting to love this book quite so much, and I?m so pleasantly surprised by how entirely captivated I was reading it. It?s not that I thought I wouldn?t like it, it's just that I couldn?t have predicted quite how much I truly do love it. Thi...

    Grace and Fury is a wonderful mix of The Hunger Games and The Selection ? In a world ruled by men, women are forbidden to read or even own books. Nomi Tessaro has rebelled and learned how to read from her brother, but she must keep it a secret. Serina chose not to break the law, know...

    3,5 stars I hated it in the beginning (the first 3-4 chapters), but it got good really fast. The last 10 chapters ended in plot twists, so I could barely lift my eyes from the pages. A nice and short read and I'm actually eager to read the sequel(s?). ...

    Girl Power!!! First, I want to start by saying that I truly didn't think I would love this book as much as I did. I am so glad I picked this one up to read, I was completely captivated! What would you do if you lived in a world where women had no rights? Well, sisters Serina and...

    eh. rtc or never ...

    THAT ENDING THOUGH ...

    I just can't decide who was more stupid between these 2. No character development (mentally). Things happened too fast. I just can't accept someone being good in fights only in 2 pages, I need to see and feel the proof. Boring characters. Very superficial both "heroines". I felt ...

    WOW! I can't believe I waited so long to read this book! I was drawn in from page 1! I love the dynamics with the sisters. I was TERRIFIED that during the story they would start to hate each other or want to work against each other! I'm so glad they kept FIGHTING to get to each othe...

    "-In all the stories, women give up everything. We are always supposed to give. We are never supposed to fight. Why do you think that is? -Because they're afraid of what will happen if we do." Rating: 5/5 stars. SYNOPSIS Where Nomi dreamed of rebellion and women's freedom, Serin...
