Review of the Week
Review is for The Thousand Year Curse by Nana Prah on Goodreads
There’s something about a YA book that always reminds me that everything in the universe should be focused on the individual teenager. No matter what is going on outside of their world, they have centralized everything. In this case Ryder is correct to do so because her world is about to get rocked with some incredible life changing revelations.
The combination of teenage angst, loves that are pure and deep and transcend time, stories about the Greek gods, and a whole lot of paranormal occurrences make for a very engaging story. I kept going back and forth about which love interest Ryder should pick. They both had their pros and cons. In the end I knew who I wanted her to end up with.
My only annoyance with this book was that it wasn’t a stand-alone so I’ll have to wait for another two books in order to learn what happens to the curse and who Ryder ends up with. The good part is that all of the books have been released and are ready for my reading pleasure.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
