Review Friday! Sisters’ Fate, Gates of Thread and Stone, and A Slither of Hope

Hi Lovelies!

It’s Tawney twin here! Let’s talk about books!


I’ve been reading a lot lately due to the fact I’m unemployed at the moment. It could be both a good thing and bad thing! But due to my free time I’ve read so many good books! I’ve decided to share them with you because they’re an excellent, fast reads that you need to add to your “to be read” list!

best day ever

Here’s 3 books I’ve read the past week and why you should read them too!


Jessica Spotswood SISTES’ FATE

Sisters' Fate

If you  haven’t read The Cahill Witch Chronicles…you need to get on it! Coming from the last book Star Cursed, we were left with a cliffhanger! The dreaded cliffhanger that makes you wait agonizing months/years to see what happens. But it wasn’t just any cliffhanger, it was a OMG-I-didn’t-see-that-coming-cliffhanger! Cate returns to the world that Jessica beautifully created with the prophecy and for a fight to protect her sisters.  Cate has always tried to keep it a secret that she’s a witch from the Brotherhood. And it gets harder and harder with the amped up security. The Sisterhood doesn’t know what to do and Cate needs to protect her sisters. I’m not going to give much away but it all twines together perfectly when this book is finished. I devoured this book once I got it in my hands! It was a great ending for the series.

Book Description:

A fever ravages New London, but with the Brotherhood sending suspected witches straight to the gallows, the Sisters are powerless against the disease. They can’t help without revealing their powers—as Cate learns when a potent display of magic turns her into the most wanted witch in all of New England.

To make matters worse, Cate has been erased from the memory of her beloved Finn. While she’s torn between protecting him from further attacks and encouraging him to fall for her all over again, she’s certain she can never forgive Maura’s betrayal. And now that Tess’s visions have taken a deadly turn, the prophecy that one Cahill sister will murder another looms ever closer to its fulfillment.

I love fantasy, so when I heard about this book I immediately added it to my TBR list. The cover is gorgeous and the concept of the book sounded fabulous. Once I bought my book and had it in my hands I engulfed this book like it was a rare chocolate treat. And what a treat it was! It’s a story of magic, romance, time bending and a gutsy main character that I loved reading about. We follow Kai through an absolute wonderful world that Lori created. I love world building and she didn’t disappoint with caste systems and magic. There’s the Infinite, the Grays and the mahjo. What’s not to love? Kai is a datermined girl who wants to save her brother Reev, who was kidnapped. Enter Avan who wants to help Kai. What a great friendship they have that slightly moves to the possibility of more. The writing flowed and I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough to see what happened next to Kai. A great adventurous read. I can’t wait to learn more from this world that Lori created. I know she has more in store for us!

Book description:


In the Labyrinth, we had a saying: keep silent, keep still, keep safe.

In a city of walls and secrets, where only one man is supposed to possess magic, seventeen-year-old Kai struggles to keep hidden her own secret—she can manipulate the threads of time. When Kai was eight, she was found by Reev on the riverbank, and her “brother” has taken care of her ever since. Kai doesn’t know where her ability comes from—or where she came from. All that matters is that she and Reev stay together, and maybe one day move out of the freight container they call home, away from the metal walls of the Labyrinth. Kai’s only friend is Avan, the shopkeeper’s son with the scandalous reputation that both frightens and intrigues her.

Then Reev disappears. When keeping silent and safe means losing him forever, Kai vows to do whatever it takes to find him. She will leave the only home she’s ever known and risk getting caught up in a revolution centuries in the making. But to save Reev, Kai must unravel the threads of her past and face shocking truths about her brother, her friendship with Avan, and her unique power.

I love angel books! When I got the first book in this series, A Shimmer of Angels,  I was hooked! So I immediately snatched the second book when it was released. We have the Fallen, angels, and hottie Kade, (Love that name) and our main character Rayna has wings! The writing was great and I whipped through this book like a road runner, quickly turning each page. Rayna must learn to protect herself form the Fallen and Kade can help with that but when she runs back to her family things get a little complicated….the suspense kicks in as we follow her trying to save herself and those she loves.



Rayna struggles to piece her life back together, but hiding in plain sight from the police, the SS Crazy, and the Fallen isn’t a foolproof plan—something Kade, the World’s Worst Roommate, reminds her of everyday. 

The late nights of failing to teach Ray how to protect herself against the Fallen are getting to Kade, changing him in ways he doesn’t like, and after a family emergency sends Ray back into Cam’s arms, Kade decides he’s had enough. 

News of Rayna’s resurfacing brings both angels and the Fallen to San Francisco by the dozens, all eyes scouring the city for the girl with the gray wings. Rayna will need both Kade and Cam’s help to ensure her family’s safety, navigate the new dangers and enemies springing up all over the city, and manage the surprises that arise with her new set of wings.

Buy on: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or the Book Depository.


So those are the books I’ve read this last week! Magic, witches and angels! I just love magic and fantasy!
