tomorrow Unfortunately I wasn t the biggest fan f this book Unfortunately I wasn t the biggest fan f this book ultimately felt that this book had A Severe Lack Of Plot And No severe lack f plot and no development whatsoever A lot Signs in the Heavens: A Jewish Messianic Perspective of the Last Days Coming Millennium of my time spent reading was wondering when SOMETHING was actually going to happen and jumpstart the novel but that didn t come until exactly 100 pages were left in the book I was kindf disappointing with the book but you can see the rest Daddy Lost Me At Poker (Eroticulture) (English Edition) of my feelings tomorrown received a free copy Orb: A Tale of Alien Pregnancy of this book from Disney Hyperion in exchange for an honest review Allpinions are my Witchopoly own My sister is no fool and she is not tender hearted My sister fights for her home and takes what risks she must That is why I put myself before her today why I would not let you have her My sister burns and she does not burn for you It s beenver two years now since I first read this book and I still credit it as Dear Chandler, Dear Scarlett: A Grandfather's Thoughts on Faith, Family, and the Things That Matter Most onef my Asesinato en una Lavandería China (Fondo Editorial Tierra Adentro original favorite YA books and yes I still think anyone who shares a book taste with me should read itSo A Thousand Nights is a feminist thematic retellingf the A Thousand and One Arabian Nights stories And well we all know how this retelling goes don t we Add a bit romance a bit less storytelling and a bit fantasy and boom We have an easy to market YA book But not so fast A decent amount f reviews n this page seem to have described this book as The Wrath and the Dawn s less attractive little sister but I genuinely think these books are completely different to the point they shouldn t even be compared The Wrath and the Dawn is romantic fantasy and in my pinion pretty good romantic fantasy A Thousand Nights is f a slow burning tension filled literary fiction esue tale Beyond Time Travel - Exploring Our Parallel Worlds: Amazing Real Life Stories in the News (Time Travel Books Book 1) of the powerf women in a history that tries desperately to erase themThere s something to be said for books that do something new rather than just remaking something Boarding House of Hunks old This is a book that somehow does bothThere s something so magical about the setting and storyf this book The entire book feels like the best fairy tale ever written all with prose that I could just drop ff my finger And yes it is a slow book but it works with such an utterly captivating atmosphere I was completely addicted I d feel comfortable giving this to a ten year ld Bec (The Demonata, or to my mother Okay and now the real gush point the unnamed heroinef this novel is The Further Mishaps of Charlie Chumpkins onef my all time favorite main characters I love how strong willed she is how dedicated and I love that she s clever without reading verpowered Her dedication to her family never feels forced so many books use she loves her family as a major motivation but fail at actually conveying a love for family but no the main character f this book feels so real and rounded I don t even know how to convey how much I love her and connect to her and would die for her instantaneously No ne paid any mind to the line f dark haired dark skinned girls who came to the asr and met their end there They were nameless and faceless under their veils The heroine f this story remains unnamed and as such this story becomes ne Our Planet: Our Home of the unnamed the anonymous the forgotten In history we tend to erase the legacyf women throughout history A Thousand Nights chooses to play with it by never naming any Kakoong, Pahlawan Pulau Awan Vol. 8 of the women but still giving them the legacy they deserve And while many Thousand Nights retellings play with the romantic dynamic before all else this book focusesn the women within the story the heroine s relationship with her sister is the absolute touchstone f the book and the love she feels for her falls through the pages It s a cleverly subversive retelling in the manner f Madeline Miller s Circe Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings or Melissa Bashardoust s Girls Madef Snow and Glass Listen guys this is ne f my favorite books and it has this beautiful cover and it has so much heart and the lead is such an icon and you should all be reading it Please come scream at me in the. Weave the most beautiful garments She sees everything as if for the last time But the first sun rises and sets and she is not dead Night after night Lo Melkhiin comes to her and listens to the stories she tells and day after day she is awoken by the sunrise Exploring the palace she begins to unlock years f fear that have tormented and silenced a kingdom Lo Melkhiin was not always a cruel ruler Something went wrongFar away in their village her sister Decided to round up but my actual rating s still 35They were burning up and they didn t even know they were afireAn elegantly written novel with a lovely story A Thousand Nights is a book perfect for all readers looking for an engrossing readIf I m being completely honest here I m not familiar with the riginal tale and had to look it up n the internet So now I know it and that totally counts Anyway A Thousand Nights gives us a uniue spin n the riginal story mainly summarized by the word magicGood men fall to monsters every day Clever men are tricked by their wn pride A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) or pretty wordsAs a huge fanf fantasy I was completely enad with all the fantasy elements in this book But let me give you a fair warning nothing is explained thoroughly Typically that ll sort f piss me ff but with this ne that sense f blindness In the End on the reader s end works really well with the story It gives the story an airf mysteryAnother aspect that was totally cryptic was the characters Heck we don t even know the main character s name Or basically any f the characters names besides Lo Melkhiin But again it worked This time around it made the story innocent and whimsical feelingThere is life and there is living and that is what she learnedNot nly was ur heroine cryptic She was also incredibly brave and selfless She didn t let her seemingly hopeless situation stop Her From Living And from living and trying to find a way ut She uses her wits to push through all the daysThe snake did not always strike Sometimes it waitedThere s also a lot to be learned from this book and things that really should happen in ur current world Some are stated explicitly while some are implied Such as1 A community should be a community In A Thousand Nights all the women are family They re all very supportive f each ther and use each ther as sources f strength The men all act as a unified body they fight together and protect each ther2 Looks can be deceiving Like with Lo Melkhiin you have to dig really deep to really know a personThe setting and the writing were both gorgeous as well and gave the book such a vivid atmosphere I loved imagining the desert the asr the gardens Everything was just so exuisite and elegantThe The Age of Treachery only reason the book wasn t a perfect read was its pace Yes this book is EXTREMELY slow Literally nothingf significance happens int he first say four fifths f the book was just imagery and character development up until the epic ending So if you re not a fan f books without much The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy of an actual story this book might be boring for youI m not really sure why this book isn t getting a lotf love I for Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite one recommend it to anyone who likes atmospheric character driven readsDeadly Darlings The Social Potato The Book Geek Twitter Instagram i almost didnt read
