FINISHED: The Winner's Curse

     Hello fellows!

     Finally, the day has come for me to inform you guys that I finished The Winner's Curse, I got the ebook of it around late January but never got around into completing it. I had pushed it aside because of school and other books. By the time I picked it up again (around a week ago), I was halfway through it and I knew that it was essential for me to be done with it soon.

Title: The Winner's Curse
Author: Marie Rutkoski
Publisher: Farrar Straus Giroux
Date Released: March 4, 2014
Number of Pages: 355
Winning what you want may cost you everything you love

As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions.

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.

But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.

     The release date for The Winner's Crime is March 3, 2015. This is a couple days from now (about a week). Before Tuesday, I need to complete The Winner's Crime and review it. After all, this is the spirit of NetGalley; in exchange for an honest review, they will provide a book of your choice (if the publishing company approves of course).

     Just yesterday, I remembered that the release date for the second book is around the corner so I mentally planned out a number of pages to read every day until Tuesday and organized when I would review it. Fortunately, I completed my homework during class time and now I have all day to start reading The Winner's Crime. To be honest this post turned out longer than I expected but all I really needed to say was that I finished it.

     That's all for my post, and remember: you should be a tree; they have awesome afterlives.
