BookTube has a really big impact on me so I came across this book called Holes by Louis Sachar which is a middle grade book about a boy on a camp in a middle of a dried up lake. They made them dig up holes where thus came the title from. I don’t know at first if I’m going to like it or not because I haven’t read a middle grade book since 2012 so I thought to myself maybe I should give it a try.
This book is introduced to me by Christine Riccio (BookTuber). I didn’t really think that I would’ve hated the book. I have a copy that’s battered and used that I didn’t think that I’d really read it, so instead I listened to an audio book because I’m scared that if I read the book, I would’ve destroyed it. So I just kept it in my container of books.

“His Fair Assassin” Trilogy is about the journey of Three Handmaidens of Death; Ismae, Sybella, and Annith. The first book, Grave Mercy, was focused on the political talks and arrangements about the duchess’s safety while the second book Dark Triumph was more of Sybella’s personal story. I love the two books but the complexity, twisted surprises and the betrayals of the Dark Triumph sets me off the edge! It was very exciting and breathtaking, BUT don’t get me wrong, Grave Mercy was exciting and great book in its own way.
The Mortal Heart is about Annith, a convent raised girl and a friend of Ismae and Sybella. Annith has been waiting her whole life wanting to be used as a tool for the glory of Mortain but ALAS! Continue reading Book Review: His Fair Assassin Trilogy by Robin LaFevers
This book is about Ari, a boy who struggled getting to know his own self. He was a lonely boy who preferred to be alone with his thoughts. He didn’t want to talk and be bothered. I didn’t think I liked him so much because he was kind of a jerk… or at least, that’s what I think.
He, then, met Dante and they became best friends. They talked a lot and were together a lot of times. Sometimes, there were situations challenging their friendship but they always found a way to solve it.
