    One thought on “Long May She Reign”

    1. BiblioBabble TK I enjoyed this WAY than I had expected to I ll admit my expectations going in were pretty low based on some other reviews I d seen but I had a great time reading well, listening really since I went the audiobook route this book It had a fabulous main character and the whole murder mystery whodunnit plot was really cool However, this is deemed a fantasy stand alone, which sure it is since it s in a fantastical setting, but don t be expecting the typical fantasy stuff like magic a [...]

    2. Oh just a hold on a sec while I have a SMALL REVIEWER CRISIS over my thoughts about this book It had a lot of potential But I have a small picnic basket full of quibbles that s really bothering me Obviously this is JUST ME and I hope you try this book and if you enjoy it, I m ever so happy for you But I can t help feeling that that the fantastic premise was let down with the execution It s also possibly I ve read a gazillion fantasy novels and MY EXPECTATIONS ARE ALWAYS OFF THIS PLANET AND THIS [...]

    3. I only bought this purely because a few people kept comparing it to The Queen of the Tearling and since that is one of my favourite trilogies I thought, could never go wrong with that.So, right off the bat, let me just say that this is NOTHING like TQotT Not by a mile Aside from the fact that these two girls women have to come to terms with their new reality of being a queen in a corrupt kingdom, there is not much else that resembles the trilogy.I found the story engaging but my reading experien [...]

    4. lolz i had this review written since this morning and forgot to post it yikesI was so pumped to love this book A standalone fantasy With a dazzling cover How often are we blessed with that Never, that s how often But but but but, it seems the inside didn t match with the outside this time Sad.So the basic gist of the plot was Freya, the MC, is 33rd in line to the throne She fancies herself a scientist over a court lady and on the night of the King s birthday, a massacre takes place where everyon [...]

    5. 3.5 starsThis book wasn t bad It was surprisingly good, but not good enough This book was was extremely unlike what I was expecting, which is both refreshing, but disappointing I liked how we had an extremely insecure and awkward MC and she goes through an incredible character development, but what made this book really suck It was the plot The blurb of this book is an exaggeration of what the book really is What I expected was an edge of my seat YA Fantasy stand alone read with lots of action, [...]

    6. This had all the elements of a typical YA fantasy book, but was actually like a murder mystery I was super into the first 20% of this book but then kind of lost interest when the pacing slowed down The beginning quickly establishes the main character of Freya, who s pretty far down the line of succession for the throne She isn t well versed in court etiquette or politics and would rather spend time working in her laboratory She was an intelligent, level headed, and capable main character.Freya [...]

    7. I tried, I really did and some things I loved but mostly I couldn t get into it and that makes me sad The book has a beautiful cover that actually goes with what s in the book Freya is thrust into being Queen when everyone at the castle is killed Well, almost everyone Freya was wayyyy down the line to become Queen and it was very scary for her I loved that she was into making things in her science lab I loved her friend Naomi and her cat But I just couldn t get into this book I have been picking [...]

    8. Long May She Reign was amazing Way than amazing than I thought it would be I loved the entire story I mean, I couldn t put down this book guys I was basically attached to it Then there s the whole Freya being queen and the title Long May She Reign it definitely reminds of the TV show Reign because they always said that in the show Plus people have tried to kill the Queen in that show even poison her I don t really know what else to say about this book other than I did not see the murderer comin [...]

    9. WrensReads Review I have mixed feelings about this book.The main character was a pretty great main character I loved that her passion wasn t something artsy like most young adult heroines are it was science and her thought process was like someone who would be a scientist So the whole story starts with someone killing basically all of the linage to the throne, including the king and his immediate family, with a poisoned cake Only the bastard of the king, our main girl Freya, her best friend Naom [...]

    10. 1.5I was going to be nice and rate this two stars, but then my usual acid self got the better of my decent one, and so here we are I finished Long May She Reign about a couple of hours ago, and each and every time I thought about it in these two hours, my mind stayed blank If I had to choose only two words to describe this book, I d choose inordinately trite The premise is delicious, and if the cover wasn t that gorgeous, I d say it also was the only thing that made me feel so drawn toward this [...]

    11. 3.5 CHEMICAL STARS You have to weed the garden before you can plant flowers, must you not Well, this book didn t turn out the way I expected it to.They compared this to The Queen of the Tearling and I loved that series except for the ending, WHAT WAS THAT , but honestly, they are nothing alike in my opinion except for the setting A common girl unexpectedly becoming queen and having to find her way That s pretty much where the similarities end.That doesn t mean I didn t like this though, because [...]

    12. This was honestly so good, I should have traded than a vague promise of good behavior for an ARC.Standalone fantasy It s where all the good one shot plots have escaped.Review to come when the aforementioned good behavior allows it.Bottom line it s than just a pretty face cover.

    13. I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss I couldn t be queen I couldn t So many people would have to die for me to inherit the throne, and they couldn t be gone This was a YA fantasy story featuring a girl who was never meant to be queen.Freya was an okay character, and I liked how she used her strengths to her best advantage, even when it didn t seem obvious how she could possibly do that.The storyline in this was about the King and his court all be [...]

    14. 3.5 Stars I was drawn to this story after seeing the cover and reading the synopsis and that fascination, that curiosity just grew after the first chapter and even so the further I got into the story.The fact that this is a stand alone, made it even appealing The simple truth that it was somewhat addicting and hard to put down, even better Let s face it, there are very little stand alone novels out there lately Instead the market of both adult and young adult, are riddled with duologies, trilo [...]

    15. Freya is the girl that shouldn t have become queen When someone poisons the court, Freya misses the attack because she bowed out to get in some chemistry time in her homemade lab Now, she is thrust into political intrigue, a position of power and is surrounded by someone who wants her dead.Freya has no idea how to be queen She struggles with her new circumstances and must learn to overcome her shortcomings in order to become a good ruler The story was a little slow going but in the end I liked i [...]

    16. 4.5 5I really seriously found this book mesmerizing Just LOOK at that cover My brain refused to find any faults Context is one of the hundred things that affect how you feel about a book The one I read before this was absolute rubbish so compared to that, this was, without a doubt, splendid I will, however, stress that Long May She Reign is extraordinary and refreshing in its own right.The genre may be fantasy but there is surprisingly little of that, there s just one element in the book that va [...]

    17. This world was pretty easy to understand but it didnt have any magic or fantastical elements which was disapointing I think its of a historical fiction with a mystery but it is marketed as a fantasy standalone I liked the whole mystery aspect of trying to figure out who killed all the nobles but someones review on ruined it for me when I was only about 20% of the way through the book The killer was named right at the top of their review so I couldnt miss it while I was scrolling through all the [...]

    18. Still slightly drained from all the interaction, still slightly unsure of what people might do next, but something had clicked, some knowledge that I could actually do this, I could be queen the way I wanted, and the consequences would be whatever the consequences would be.Long May She Reign is a story about a girl who was 23rd in line to the throne to suddenly find herself queen A massacre on the court leaves Freya the next in line after she luckily gets by without being poisoned Now, a girl wh [...]

    19. Title Long May She ReignAuthor Rhiannon ThomasPublisher HarperTeen, 2017 Feb 21 Genre YA FantasyThis review can be found on my Blog TeacherofYA s Tumblr, or my page My Review Ok You all know I m a sucker for a pretty cover 9 times out of 10 it actually works for me Really The wrapper matches the inside and I m a happy girl I m a coverwhore but a lucky one.This was not one of those times Thank goodness I got this from Overdriveif I had bought this, I would have been disappointed This is why I mai [...]

    20. You have to weed the garden before you can plant flowers, must you not Actual rating 2.75 stars I d seen so many bad ratings for this book, so I got a little scared to read this But I decided enough postponing, this book has been for over a half year on my tbr, I just need to start I love that this is a YA fantasy standalone, I don t see many of those And the concept was really intriguing, but this story didn t captivate me as much as I hoped, and I don t particularly know why not I actually don [...]

    21. 2 5 starsit s pretty much guaranteed that I ll read a book if it s compared to The Girl of Fire and Thorns I liked the premise and was quite eager to read Sadly, this was a bit boring It started out strong I liked Freya and I really loved that she was a scientist I loved her experiments and her devotion to her cat I wanted to root for her I guess my hang up was the plot Everything moved so slowly that I quickly lost interest Even the few small reveals couldn t keep me captivated And by the time [...]

    22. FACTS It s not really a romance There are a few bits and pieces, but it s ultimately sooo not the focus of the story, which is kind of appropriate It seemed like it would be a fantasy book, but it s not really I mean, it is, because it s about some imaginary land kingdom But I guess it didn t feel like a fantasy since it s so rooted in science and there s no magic.WHAT I LIKED I really liked the overall story This girl who never in a million years expected to be queen is suddenly queen I liked t [...]

    23. Long May She Reign has a lot of potential to be brilliant and puzzling This is a tale about a girl who becomes Queen when just the day before, she was 23rd in line So while she struggles with the responsibilities of being Queen, Freya also works on trying to find out who the murderer is and why they did what they did Their intention could never have possibly been to put her on the throne, so who else could have done it While Freya learns about her people and her land, she also learns about tho [...]

    24. 3.5 starsLong May She Reign is an engaging and well written fantasy, but, plotwise, there isn t anything about it to differentiate it from all the other YA fantasies that have been published.17 year old Freya was never meant to be queen Twenty third in line to the throne, she has always been content staying in her laboratory and conducting science experiments But when everyone at the King s banquet is poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself Queen.Freya is a wonderful and well written main charact [...]

    25. I liked this book, but I didn t love it and I wouldn t say it s very memorable Freya trying to solve the mystery of the banquet poisoning is what mostly kept me reading, because you seriously don t know until the end It wasn t very suspenseful, but I loved seeing Freya s growth throughout the book.

    26. Long May She Reign was everything I needed in a book that I didn t even know I needed From Freyas first panic attack I knew that we were meant to be This was a Queen made for me, she asked questions and she did do well with orders even while craving guidance She had a best friend that she depended on entirely and a father she adored if didn t understand If someone was making a book about me as a Queen Freya s story would be it and so I can t recommend this book enough It was engaging and interes [...]
