Undead Monthly

Undead Monthly is the monthly roundup or summary here at the blog. Instead of the usual (and kinda boring, admit it) way we do our monthly summaries (which was listing down books read and that we want to read), we will using a new method.

First, we’ll list down the highlights of the month, if there are any. Then, we’ll pick a book/s that we really loved that month and recommend it. We’ll also be listing down our reviews of the month for you guys to check out! Lastly, we’ll have a wishlist/to read section for the following month!

Of course, feel free to leave links to your own monthly/weekly summaries and we’ll try to check them out ASAP.

Undead Monthly-Highlights

Aimee started running “Waiting On” Wednesday memes again! In the month of February, she’s featured The Winner’s Curse (review coming soon!), Stitching Snow, Say What You Will and The Girl from the Well.

We posted our first movie review! We reviewed the Vampire Academy movie here.

For those who have loved Seraphina and Graceling comes another truly fabulous fantasy…

For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.

But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.

As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.

WHY AIMEE RECOMMENDS IT
“I really, really enjoyed this novel. High fantasy is one of my favorite genres, so it was easy to get into this world and I really loved how everything went. The Trolls were amazing, the heroine was badass and the hero was sweet. Overall, it was a fantastic read and damn that cliffhanger ’cause I need the next book now! You can find my review of Stolen Songbird here.”

  5. Haha, I’ve heard nothing but bad things about Fates. I’m glad I let that one pass! It sounds pre-tty horrible. Your wishlist is awesome, though – ASK AGAIN LATER. It’s adorable. There is banter. There is adorable banter. It is AWESOME.
    Ahem.

    And I love your haul! Faking Normal looks quite pretty in person!

  6. Awesome book haul, Aimee! want a finished copy of Faking Normal! And I want to watch Vampire Academy too- mostly because I’m curious. I wasn’t sure that Stolen Songbird would be my kind of book at first but now, you kinda make me wanna read it! And hey, I’m excited you want to read Ask Again Later (loved that one!) and also that you’re reviewing Split Second! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on both of them! :)

  7. I’m sorry to see that Vampire Academy (the movie) wasn’t a hit with you. I love that series and I was hoping the movie would be good, too. I’ll probably wait until the movie comes out on DVD to watch it then. Lovely wrap up here! :)

    Like

  8. I haven’t watched the movie because I actually have never read the series and it just feels wrong to watch the movie before reading the book. Unless if I have no intention of reading it, I try to avoid that!

    Stolen Songbird has been getting great positive reviews lately and I do like this different twist on trolls! I think I’ll add this on my TBR :)

  9. Honestly can’t believe it’s already March. Ahhhhh, times truly flies. I can’t wait to read your review for the Winners Curse, there’s so much hype surrounding it so my excitement and nervousness for it is at an all time high. Vitro has such a pretty beachy cover. Sadly I haven’t heard the best things about it though /: KFJRKJEWRJEKRH STOLEN SONGBIRD <33 I still have all of the feels for that book. Haha, clearly we're both in need of the sequel asap.

    Can't wait to see what this blog has in store for March(: I'm so glad I've discovered it and you <33

  10. Aww, it looks like y’all had a good February! And a good March to come! I seriously love those review headers. That’s something I want to try to do, but get lazy every time I think about working on them. :) Sad to see only 2 zombies for After the End, since it sounds so cool. I’ll have to go read the review to see why! But I hope you love Death Sworn and Ask Again Later–I really enjoyed both!–and I will definitely be checking out your Winner’s Curse review! :) Happy March y’all!
