The Book of May

Hello my dear internetees! I’ve decided to have a book of the month sort of thing, and the reason why I’m doing this on the 1st of June, is because I can’t really do it in May. It wouldn’t really work if I wrote about a book of the month on, lets say, the 28th of May, but then read an even better book on the 30th. So, I decided to do May’s book of the month on the 1st of June.

And the winner, of this Book of the Month, is… Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by Robin LaFevers!

This book is so amazing; I just start to smile whenever I think about it. I absolutely adore it – it has the perfect blend of weird, action, and romance, and I think it has a little something for everyone.

Ismea (“the girl”) is so… cool, in a way. She’s very tough, and hard-core. At the same time, I think she has a little bit of a fragility to her, but for some reason this delicateness only makes her stronger.

But anyway, check out the description below, and be sure to buy a copy of this book for your Summer Reading.

Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.GraveMercy_final_hres

Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?
