Book Review: Longbow Girl by Linda Davies

* I have received this book for review from the publisher but this in no way affects my review *
Title: Longbow Girl Author: Linda Davies Source: Received from Publisher Publisher: Chicken House Rating: 4/5 stars





Summary of Longbow Girl from Goodreads:
A stunningly exciting and dramatic story set in the wilds of the Welsh mountains, where the brave and beautiful Merry Owen, the Longbow girl, travels back in time to the autocratic kingdom of King Henry VIII to save her ancestors. Steeped in history, ancient lore and crackling with tension between the central characters Merry and James, Longbow girl explores the themes of who we are and who we can become when fighting for those we love and for our very lives. Are we prisoners of our history or can we break free? Can we become all that we need to be to meet the ultimate challenge of life and death in the King’s Tournament and in the dungeons of the Black Castle?
Book Review Summary:
I have always wanted to read a book set in Wales, so when Longbo…

Thursday Tracks: Fight Song by Rachel Platten

Number 5: Downsiders Universe

This is a book by Neal Shusterman which has some kind of appeal to it. The Downsiders have their own unique world which is amazing, a world set underneath New York city. I wouldn't want to live there but it is a nice world to read about and there is a apparently there is a sequel to this book which I really want to read. 







Number 4: Iron Fey World

The Iron Fey World is one of those's world that I would admire from afar as it can be dangerus for humans but Julie Kagawa has built a very vivid world of Faeries that I really love and it is explored as the series progresses. It is a universe that I would love to explore. 









Number 3: The Mortal Instruments Universe

The Mortal Instruments Universe is one that I just want …

Number 10: Lena from the Delirium series

Although I do like Lena she can at times be very annoying especially when it comes to her image. I wouldn't say we didn't click it, it was more of a misunderstanding. 









Number 9: Tally Underblood from The Uglies series

I haven't read this story in a long while but it is one that I need to get back into although I do have some problems with Tally herself which prevents me from continuing this series. The problem again is with her looks which also is the main bases with this series.









Number 8: Gally from The Maze Runner series

I can't really talk about this one without spoilers from the Death Cure but even in the Maze Runner we just didn't click. 









Number 7: Peter fr…
