If you caught even just a couple of my updates I think it would ve been plainly obvious that I didn t enjoy this book It s disappointing, really, because I think Carson was attempting to create a heroine that many girls could relate to Elisa is overweight, unsure of herself, overshadowed by her prettier and skinnier sister, and chosen for something she s not sure she s worthy of It sounds like the beginning of a compelling story, but ultimately Elisa only proves her worthiness by changing everyt [...]

Running in a 25k marathon.In 4.8 inch heels.In the rain.With an STD.While hungover.And getting passed by a 93 year old man,Who s wearing a very form fitting polyester purple leopard print body suit.Would have been better than this book.

I feel torn about The Girl of Fire and Thorns.On the one hand, there s not much room to accuse this book of being slow the action is constant, zipping along from a bloody battle, to a lusty encounter PG 13, of course , to another dramatic reveal, to a kidnapping Elisa s life spins off in a crazy new direction that starts with her marriage to a King of a nearby country in chapter one, and the pacing never slows down after that.Elisa is a 16 year old princess and was born the bearer of a Godstone [...]

2.5 starsMy ARC has the old version of the cover and it is super pretty, the blue tones of it are gorgeous I am glad the publishers changed it though At the very least this book will be spared accusations of whitewashing and weightwashing The heroine of this novel Princess Elisa of Orovalle describes herself as dark, brown and also as a big, bloated sausage and pig Clearly, the cover doesn t quite match these adjectives.Now onto the novel itself 16 year old princess Elisa has a gift from God a m [...]

And God raised up for Himself a champion Yea, once in every four generations He raised him up to bear His mark What better way to take a break from stupid reality things like essays and demanding classes than a YA fantasy book about war, prophecy, an unlikely heroine and mouth watering food Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleasantly surprised Lucero Elisa Heavenly light, chosen of God His words suffocate me as surely as his embrace All my life, I ve been reminded that I am destined for service Destin [...]

1.5 stars All in all incredibly underwhelming and somewhat both idiotic and infuriating Trust me, I would love to tell you that my distaste only revolves around personal matters as a strong case of it s not the book but me , let s say but in all honesty, I really don t think that and the problems I had with The Girl of Fire and Thorns were way too numerous to be left ignored You must not lose faith, child No matter what Do not doubt God or his choosing of you He knows infinitely than we can ima [...]

God s will How many times have I heard someone declare their understanding of this thing I find so indefinable Sometimes it s fascinating how authors can synthesize their own books in just one sentence strategically hidden in the books themselves Hats off One of the main complaints readers usually have when it comes to this book is the main character In all honesty, Elisa may be difficult to stand, especially because, especially at the beginning, her way of thinking is strictly linked to her bei [...]

I don t know.I liked some parts of it, but it was weird draggy preachy in parts, too Guess I ll settle on 3 stars First off, the whole stone in the belly button thing was sort of strange eventually when she tried to dig it out off putting for me.I justewNow, supposedly, she was given the stone by God to help her do something special, but the records of the previous Stone Bearers seemed sketchy at best Some of them accomplished something, some of them died young, and most of them faded into obscu [...]

This was one of those books I have a hard time rating, simply because some elements were very well done, and others very poorly done.The Girl of Fire and Thorns is the story of Elisa, princess to the country of Oravalle and bearer of the Godstone, a jewel implanted in her navel that signifies she is marked by god as one who will do a Service Elisa has no idea what her Service will be, and can t imagine herself ever being useful to her country She is merely the overweight, shy younger daughter of [...]

I reeeeeeeeally liked this This was such a refreshing YA fantasy I didn t realize how much I needed something like this The premise was interesting and unique and I felt many different feels while reading this story I would also like to note that for me anyway the synopsis does not do this book justice at all I really expected this to be of a fluff fantasy and I ended up putting it off for so long because of it Very much looking forward to continuing

DNF at 50% I understand why it is better to die from my service than never complete it at all Far, far better Homer and Damian never profited from their acts of heroism everyone who followed did In the same way, I may never reap the benefits of mine, should I complete it But that doesn t matter, because God placing his stone in my belly was never about me I firmly believe a new genre should be carved out just for The Girl of Fire and Thorns Religious Fantasy Lord, is it preachy just look at some [...]

3.5 stars Crappy Review Time This takes place in a sort of reimagined Spanish country with a big splash of desert terrain mixed in So you ve got the adobe villas along with camels and sand storms The background is religious every century, God it seems to be a Catholic y god, but is also kind of undefined , chooses a bearer to wear a magic stone in their belly button The stone appears in infancy and is attached until death We aren t really sure what the stone does for awhile, but it has magic, an [...]

WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKSThere is a special place in my heart for fantasy novels I love getting lost in a world that exists only because one person dreamed it There s nothing exciting than starting a new book that feels different from anything you ve read before Immediately, I knew that The Girl of Fire and Thorns was one such book As it opens, the protagonist, Elisa, is worried about fitting into her wedding dress, and praying that her husband will be ugly because she s so worried she ll disappoin [...]

How many fat, introverted, intellectual princesses do we have in YA fantasy lit or any fiction, for that matter I appreciate that Rae Carson went to the effort of writing against type Despite noble efforts, though, this book is just a pile of fail.What made me angry with this book Let me count the ways 1 Fat hate I m sure that overweight readers especially those who have issues with binging will identify with Elisa, but I m really fucking exhausted of every overweight central character in any bo [...]

So, I wanted to like this so much than I did, because it was recommended by a dear person who is usually right on with her recommendations for me I was really excited about it, because I think the premise is interesting, and I wanted to see how Carson would develop this idea and her character However, I didn t like it Carson suffers from showing and not telling She tells the reader everything, and this is really frustrating She doesn t immerse you in the world, and I so badly wanted to fall int [...]
