Map of Fates
That’s how long it took for Avery West’s ordinary life to change forever: In two weeks, she discovered she was heiress to a powerful secret society known as the Circle, learned her mother was taken hostage by the Circle’s enemies, and fell for a boy she’s not allowed to love, just as she found out another was her unwelcome destiny.
Now, Avery crosses oceans in ...more
The first half of the book was bland. Flat. Meh. Sigh-inducing. Eye roll worthy. Frustration ...more
Dear whatever is listening,
Take me to Church. This book killed me. The last 45% of the book: killer(as in Michael Jackson Killer.)
I NEED MORE STELLAN!!!!
Update 13.03.2015: WE HAVE A NAME!!! MAP OF FATES! Sounds intresting I'm wondering if it somehow explains how their fates are interwined?
That awesome moment when the newest author you like sees your intresent and you're like:
I'm torn about this book. It rather dreamily contains elements that I am admittedly fond of, including conspiracies, Russian boys (hah!), glamorous international travel, and some rather swoony scenes.
On the other hand, there's a major element that made me uncomfortable, and I don't know how to process that. (view spoiler)[The fact that the only two heirs killed in the Circle were both POC makes me disappointed in the author, especially considering the implication that they were both ...more
*crying tears of joy*
Someone...anyone, gimme this book already! I've been attempting to build a time machine to jump into the future to get my hands on Map of Fates .
This is like one of those books where the love triangle is pretty much not shitty
Ohhhh Jack and Avery <3....
Ohhhh Stellan and Avery <3....
Ohhhh Jack and Stellan <3....
Holy hell, what a ride. Map of Fates was just....//wow//
BUT LET ME JUST SAY THIS FIRST. Am I the only ...more
1. Avery's character arc. I loved watching Avery grow in The Conspiracy of Us, but that's from "ordinary girl" to, well, spoiler alert. But this book is about her fine tuning, and ...more
Map of Fates is a slim sequel, but I think it set up for an exciting finale. Can't wait to see where Avery, Stellan, Jack, Elodie, and crew go from here!
I still think some things just don't quite make sense, it's still pretty much silly read at times(though not nearly as much as book one), and I'm not really invested in any of the characters, there's also way too much present love-triangle and the heroine'S damn indecisiveness about the two guys, yet..
I felt like this book was such an imporvement in terms of the ...more
I again had some trouble connecting with Avery. She's still a bit whiny, but she's going through some things, so it makes sense. There's some definite growth from her and by the end of the book, she seems to have the potential to be a formidable opponent.
My main complaint was the back and forth with the boys. That got old pretty quickly. This time around had me rooting for one of them right away and I'm hoping I get the outcome I want.
Overall, a lot of ...more
Things I'm looking forward to:
-Avery being a boss
-Elodie and more umbrella-knives
-The Mummy/Indiana Jones style tomb hunting
-Finding out how much Avery's mom knows
-BICKERING AND KISSING AND ANGST
Map of Fates by Maggie Hall is the second book in The Conspiracy of Us trilogy and while I hadn’t been as invested in the first book as I had hoped, the cliffhanger ending left my interest piqued enough to continue reading. Plus, the cover of Map of Fates is one of the prettiest of the year in my opinion! I’m pleased to report that I enjoyed Map of Fates much more thanThe Conspiracy of Us and while it still wasn’t a 5 star read, I am genuinely looking ...more
AND UNDERWATER KISSING. *Winks
Avery seemed more grounded and logical in this. Also, Jack and Stellan moved beyond just hot, mysterious boys thankfully as we learned more about them. I only lose my cool for Stellan though my ...more
Expected publication: March 8th 2016
wtf dont be rude.
HOLY SHIT THAT COVER IS BEAUTIFUL.
A pink cover? Hmm.
I kind of like the title.
Map of Fates picks up where The Conspiracy of Us left off. Avery has figured out what she is supposed to be destined for and how she fits into the Circle but she isn’t prepared to just do ...more
I've waxed poetic about fantasy squads for years on end, but there's something to be said about a contemporary squad banding together to, um... channel Napoleon and Alexander the Great?
It's exactly as entertaining as it sounds.
"It's seductive, being wanted," he said. "Its what makes us less careful."
First of all... that ending.
WHAT IS HAPPENING>?!?!?
Second of all... book 2 was just as exciting and entertaining, if not more, than book 1. Look these books aren't talked about a whole lot. They aren't like SUPER AMAZING but they are SUPER FUN. I like a good mystery and something that keeps me guessing the whole time. I enjoyed the plot twists and the story change ups. The characters are highly ...more
I actually really liked it, like in the aftermath. At first I was feeling a real 4 star vibe but its not a 4.5 star vibe so lets make it 0.25 more.
(I want to put it out there that this review is literally just me spewing (great imagery) out thoughts. It's written in the same manner as how I talk, which is horribly ungrammatical and most definitely ineloquent. And I know, I have a problem with the word--like. I've got to let it go.)
See Maggie’s scrumptious offering is like my guilty pleasure. ...more
2nd read: July 25, 2017
If I thought I loved the first book, then I don't even know what feelings I have towards this one. The second installment is even bigger and better and more adventurous than the first.
We pick up a couple weeks following the conclusion of the first novel. I love when authors do this because it allows our characters to have a new goal in mind and helps beat that second book slump. This second book definitely did not have second book slump. AT ...more
The Conspiracy of Us was rather silly but still enjoyable while Map of Fates shines with all its might. I'm so glad I decided to read the second book. It's a better, improved model. I literally have nothing bad to say which is strange for me.
Love triangle was finally resolved and I couldn't be happier. While reading The Conspiracy of Us I wasn't sure if either one of the guys was a good fit for Avery but Maggie Hall gave us a couple of solid ...more
This book was way more solid then the first one. It had a lot more travel and and there was a lot more action and a better, more concrete plot. I grew to like the main character in this one. There were shocking revelations and to be honest I don't want to give too much away. You have to read and find out your self.
The one thing that bothers me is that the love triangle has still not been solved. MAKE UP YOU MIND GIRL!!
I cannot wait for ...more
