The second book I read this month was "The Iron Trial" by: Cassandra Clare and Holly Black. So I pretty much just picked up this book because Cassandra Clare co-wrote it, however I genuinely did like the book! I do wish it had been longer,but I really like the story of it. FTM said that some people had been saying it was kind of like Harry Potter. I personally haven't read or really seen the Harry Potter series so I really can't say much on that. To me though I think that this book is definitely unique and the only thing in common for me was that they both are at a magic type of school. I really like how Callum just takes in Havoc and makes him his pet. There isn't really too much on Havoc in the book, but Havoc seems cute and fun. (Oh and I love Warren too!) I really enjoyed reading this book and I am so excited for the next books! I am kind of sad that now I have to wait... I hope they come out soon! I would give this book 5/5 stars!
The fourth book I read this month was "Broken Arrow" by: John Wilson. This is the second book to the Seven Series Sequels. John Wilson's books were about the grandchild Steve. I find that in comparison to the rest of the books in this series, his books have the most history incorporated. He tends to focus on bringing in real historical things and linking them in some elaborate way that usually makes it really intriguing to read. This particular book was also like that. I feel kind of conflicted about this book. The way he tied everything together in this book was really cool and the story itself was very well planned out. However there was just something about the way it was written that kind of bugged me. I just found that I didn't really connect with the characters this time. Usually I can kind of grasp the sense of adventure of some sort, but this time I just didn't. For this reason I will lower my rating, but as somebody who likes facts in stories, I'd say this is a very fascinating read. I would give this book 4.2/5 stars.
On a side note I also read parts of some books during December, but didn't finish any of them. I kept getting new books, or books from the library and was trying to shuffle around what books I was reading. Anyway these books will be in the next wrap up hopefully.
