Weekly Roundup: We're Back and DNF Reaction Video

I haven't decided if I'm going to try book blogging again,  but I will be posting my videos here every weekend as a kind of weekly newsletter for anyone who doesn't want to miss our videos.  I know I tend to miss out on content because my newsfeed on YouTube is always overflowing.

Lindsay and I tried branching out to other topics like make up and lifestyle, but we discovered we didn't like it.  Here's our goals for bringing this channel back.

Rachel from Books Undone made a video about being unsure whether she should stop reading a book she doesn't like (DNF=Did Not Finish).  Here are my thoughts.

Don't forget to subscribe to our channel for more bookish videos!

{Review} Cruel Beauty (Spoiler FREE)

It's hard to talk about a book without actually talking about it, but I managed to keep this spoiler free. Let me know if you plan on reading this.  Or if you have read it were you as confused as I was?

{Review} Defy by Sara B. Larson

Pages: 336
Publication date: January 7, 2014
Publisher: Sara B. Larson
How I got the copy: From Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Rating:  4 out of 5 Stars
From Goodreads:
A lush and gorgeously written debut, packed with action, intrigue, and a thrilling love triangle.

Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy and serve in the king's army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince's guard. But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can't prevent him from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and deep into enemy territory.

The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince, the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom she's sworn to protect?

To say this review is late is an understatement.  But in all fairness I wrote it on my phone in the notes app back in January.  So I apologize to the publisher it took so long for me to post it!

Are you a fan of Mulan and Throne of Glass?  Then I highly suggest you try Defy.  It's got a girl pretending to be a boy in the kingdom's army.  She's vulnerable like Mulan and yet really kick butt like Celaena.
