Okay, so I have a confession to make: I was abducted by aliens. I know, it’s hard to believe that my dream has come true after only a few months … but it’s true.
Now, with that statement comes two true facts: 1) I had plenty of time to read (intermittent with experimentation) and that is just glorious. But 2) While I was prepared with a few books (like a good, loyal bookdragon), I quickly ran out. So I have been
in a reading slump unable to read many books due to an alien abduction. This has been the cause of my disappearance.
BUT. One of the books that I did have was Unraveling by Sara Ella (the second book in the Unblemished trilogy … where I coincidentally reviewed the first book HERE).
Enjoy this review.
Or my alien “friends” will come for you.
What I liked:
So … this is just a fairytale-esque book. Everything’s just so … sweet, even when someone’s being tortured. 😉
Also. While there is a love triangle ( 😦 ), both of the guys are great in their own ways, and as well as the other characters, they are well written and everything.
But one of my favorite things about this book and the one prior, is that while everything has a (Disney) fairytale feel to it, it has so much … modern voice to it. Like, um, yeah. Not sure how to describe it. Like in her head she uses hashtags or uses Oreos as comparison and the like. 😛
Eh. I’m still not a huge fan of El. She has a lot of points for the reader to connect with … but she just seems to be the complete opposite of me. Still, she had her good moments.
Okay. Ky. </3 I’m soooo conflicted. I love him, but yet … he’s Superman? Ya know? He’s just so perfect, even down to his flaws that make him even more perfect. But I mean, come on. If you’ve read the first book, you know just how adorable Kyaphus is!!
Oddly enough, this book made me love Joshua. I wasn’t super fond of him before, but in this … you really see his struggles and his … dark … side. And since we got a lot of narrative from him, that was pretty cool. So now I love him and am possibly (???) on team Joshua???
As always, Ms. Sara Ella’s writing is fantastical (is that a proper form of the word fantasy???? Whatever.) and very … enchanting? Magical? Um, I don’t know. It’s just very light, so it makes for an “easy” read.
The plot moves along pretty well. A little slow, for my taste, but it still worked really well for the book.
Ehhh. Love triangle stuff. Really not my thing – but I was surprised by how well this all worked (even though I still didn’t love it). It is well written, though I wasn’t as tolerant of it in this book as the one prior.
And I kinda had to force myself to pick up the book, though I enjoyed it wile I was reading it. I found a lot of things to be too coincidental. A lot of things confused me or didn’t make since, as well.
This is a really sweet, fairytale book that has a lot of romance and just … yeah. It’s good.
There is some violence (nothing too extreme), and kissing. But it’s pretty appropriate.
This series is very sweet and and fairytale-esque with lots of romance and a touch of action. I’d definitely recommend this to those modern fairytale lovers!
