Hello, everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday. I probably won’t be very active during the next few days because I got my grades back on Thursday and I do have to repeat two of my exams next week, and also because I’ve joined readbyzoe’s 24h reading marathon and thebooktarian’s #crashathon. I’ll give you an update of those marathons sometime during next week! ^^
For now, I’ll leave you my review of Ponto Sem Retorno by Gabriela Simões. This is a book by an author from my country, and as it is not translated, I don’t think you’d be very interested. I needed, however, to write this in order to let my thoughts flow. This is more of a rant than anything else, to be honest.
Title: Ponto Sem Retorno (Point of No Return, roughly translated)
Author: Gabriela Simões
Publisher: Edições Vieira da Silva
Number of Pages: 238
translated from Goodreads
Giselle Levy is a half-witch and she lives isolated from the rest of the world, with her grandpa, hidden from the king’s eyes. She’s careful and astute; however, trying to survive, she’s caught and blackmailed by one of the Princes of Kendrad, Cristian, who promises not to turn her in, if she agrees to work at the palace. Struggling, she puts her identity in danger and starts working at the palace, where she has to deal with the seduction attempts of Prince Cristian, the mysterious glances of Prince Eli, the secret meetings with her best friend Rylan, and an inhuman king who keeps dark secrets. Giselle lives in a constant uncertainty and torment of being discovered; bitter for not being free, she finds a mysterious room with a powerful enchantment that could change everything. Assertive, intelligent and defensive, she’ll face a decision that will change her life forever and the idea she has of herself.
I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
