    2. I wanted to be a soldier Someone who would earn standing in Winter Someone Sir would look at with pride Someone Mather would look at and No.This is one of the best high fantasy I ve read this year, which might not mean much, considering the crap I ve read, but I can only attest to my enjoyment of it This book is good Butbut there s the love triangle.I m at the center of this, a weird possessive feud between the Winter king and the Cordellan prince.Why there gotta be a love triangle, man For all [...]

    5. I tried really hard to like Snow Like Ashes Really hard There are a lot of things a person might try to do You can try to ride a bike Try to draw Try to, I don t know, jump off a cliff And that s when I realized I was being completely ridiculous You can t force yourself to like something no matter how hard you try So I stopped trying and just continued reading, mostly because I really hate DNFing books, and took the pressure off of myself Needless to day, Snow Like Ashes never improved for me.Be [...]

    7. It s too easy to throw balance into chaos This was an interesting, mostly positive, surprise I did not know what I was getting into, perhaps, for there are many things I wasn t expecting to discover.While, overall, I found Meira to be a good fantasy heroine, there are some specific scenes, that could have been avoided or modifided, making her, somehow, get out of her character a strong and fierce one It is that she is quite reckless and there are moments when she can t control her emotions and a [...]

    8. Recycling My First Reviews A Trip Down Memory Lane, Vol 1Then Snow and ice and frost above, that was ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ I can t believe it took me so long to start reading it Everything, everything that makes fantasy my favorire genre was dominant in Snow Like Ashes the unique world Sara Raasch created, with the magic s source, the division of the nations based on the season weather, the evil, cruel monarch who sought unlimited power without hesitating to meddle with dark for [...]

    11. Well this book was an amazing novel which I will not be forgetting for a long time I have always struggled with getting into the fantasy genre so at the end of 2014 I said to myself that I need to try the genre bit Being the second fantasy novel of the year 2015 that I have read It has not disappointed Bear with me, I do not normally type reviews but I will give this a go If you want to buy the book with free shipping here is a link bookdepository Snow LiRight, I feel in love with the whole set [...]

    12. This was so much fun 4.5 stars almost 5.I kept getting this book mixed up with Shatter Me so I stalled on reading it, but it s like this glorious little whirlwind of a YA fantasy plot that made me eat every single word I ve ever said against YA tropes I loved them all And I m not even sure if it was ironically I was just straight up entertained.Tropes in a nutshell Meira is part of a group of outcasts trying to take back their kingdom of Winter free their people from the evil kingdom of Spring t [...]

    14. I probably would have rated this a tad lower, but and I can t BELIEVE I m saying this I adored the love triangle.I KNOW, RIGHT No one is as surprised by that statement as I am.And it is a love triangle There s the boy she s loved all of her life, and then there s the boy she s forcibly engaged to Guess which one I picked The new guy Again, no one is as surprised as I am I m a HUGE sucker for the We ve Been Friends Forever sort of love Plus, there s no easy winner in this triangle Like, it doesn [...]

    16. Brilliant debut Sarah Raasch gave fans of YA medieval fantasy exactly what they wanted This book had a lot of action without being too bogged down in details and there was never a dull moment I found the protagonist believable and I really enjoyed her love interest, Theron He is exactly my kind of prince I am looking forward to the sequel especially if it involves a lot of rivalry between Mather Theron Not huge on love triangles but love to see them acting jealous P

    18. 2.5 I don t need made up strength I m strong enough on my own me, Meira, no magic or conduit or anything How is it then that you don t feel truly fulfilled until you find out that you after all ARE the special snowflake we all knew since page one you d end up being I hate this kind of plot development The main character spends the entire story trying to find in him herself a reason to feel important on his own, by virtue only of his spiritual or whatever strength, and then it turns out that all [...]

    19. No matter what happens, no matter who turns on me, no matter what pompous swine thinks he has power over me, I am still me I will always be me Wow This surprised the heck out of me, I ve had it on my TBR for quite a while now and I think I ve owned the book since the start of the year, I just kept putting it off and picking up something else No idea why now as since I ve read I ve been kicking myself for waiting so long because this book is good.Of course there is one unfortunate problem and tha [...]

    20. Even the strongest blizzards start with a single snowflake It was of to a slow start and I almost stopped reading it, but then I got trapped in the story and had a hard time putting it down I were really impressed in the end The world was well built and I really liked how their features were connected to the different seasons, like the people from Winter had white hair Although, I did not like how they kept things from Meira Some things were understandable, since they wanted to protect her, but [...]

    23. 4.5 STARS Someday we will be than words in the dark This book really surprised me I didn t really think I d enjoy Snow Like Ashes because all the reviews seemed to range from mixed to just plain average I just ended up putting this series off until now because the premise honestly sounded so interesting and I figured I should just form my own opinion and see for myself how I d like this book.At first, I thought that the beginning was a little slow and info dumpy I was starting to get a little b [...]

    24. Holy Jesus in a manger on the 25th of December I think I just found a new fantasy series to love.And here I thought the Young Adult demographic has forgotten to churn out awesome high fantasies The last time I ve ever loved a YA Fantasy with a female heroine this much was when I read The Girl of Fire and Thorns Trilogy by Rae Carson Since then, the fantasies I ve read didn t even ignite any wonder or awe in me, didn t make me feel as immersed, didn t make me feel as involved or as engrossed They [...]

    25. Every time someone asks me about Throne of Glass, I want to chuck Snow Like Ashes at their faces and yell something along the lines of, Read this thing instead Of course, people won t listen to me if I don t justify my suggestion Here s why I recommend everyone should pick up Snow Like Ashes Meira knows how to kick ass No matter what happens, no matter who turns on me, no matter what pompous swine thinks he has power over me, I am still me I will always be me All her life, all Meira wanted was t [...]

    26. Someday, we will be than words in the dark For a long time, YA Fantasy was repetitive and boring, with the same special snowflakes, the same innocent, pure heroines All the stories were formulaic, as if it wasn t physically possible to write anything different.Lately, though, YA fantasy has started branching out It was easily forgotten how much this reader loved the magic and forbidden love stories, the strange creatures that lurked in the dark, the different kingdoms, the results of a beautifu [...]

    27. I can feel him eyeing Mather, both of them caught in an awkward web surrounding me I m at the center of a weird possessive feud between the Winter king and the Cordellan prince How in the name of all that is cold did that happen I have no idea But of course, no love triangle is complete without manly preening It whacks into the center of the target, the handle wobbling from force Theron turns to me, half his face slight with the beginnings of a smile My weapon of choice doesn t matter, he says, [...]

    28. 1.5 starsWell, this was underwhelming as heck.First things first with this review, I don t mean to say that this is a bad book, because it s not In fact, I can see why so many people loved it, but it definitely wasn t for me It was just so generic and bland, and was completely identical to every other fantasy novel I ve read before Nothing about it was remarkable I found the whole seasons idea to be quite silly what is it with authors these days, that they keep naming things after seasons, color [...]

    29. Why in the world was this book in the bottom of my TBR I would ve read it sooner had I known it would be this freakin good I admit it was off to a very slow start because of the meticulous process of world building, but thank heavens it somehow evolved into this exhilarating ride of plot twists that kept me hanging on the edge of my seat Honestly, there were moments when I was jadedly sure where the story was going However, I assure you that these moments were soon followed by gasps of surprise [...]
