Graceling - Kristin Cashore
Graceling is about a girl who's Grace, or special power in other words, is killing. When she discovers this, the King (her uncle) keeps her close to do his dirty work for her because everyone was scared of her. I'm not sure how much the synopsis actually reveals - and i'm too lazy to check - but that's all i'll say for now incase i spoil something!!
I really loved Katsa, she's such a strong female heroine. A lot of people compare her to Katniss, and I can really see why. She can handle herself, she knows what's right and what's wrong and she'll fight for what she believes in. All of the characters in this book were really likeable.
I don't know why I was reluctant to actually start reading it, it's been on my kindle for a good few months but I clicked it one night and couldn't put it down! The story-line is so unique and different, I instantly fell in love with it.
Because I read this a few months ago, it's quite hard to pick out what I didn't like about it because I don't really remember the specifics, but I'm taking that as a good thing because if there was something I really hated about it, I'd definitely remember, so the problems I maybe had with it were probably not major anyway.
I really recommend this book, it's become one of my favourite books, I just really loved reading it!
