MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading ListI loved this book It won t happen right away The poison will take some time to absorb into his skin where my lips brushed against his, to find its way into his blood stream To destroy him In one hour, his skin will heat I can picture him taking off his black jacket, tugging at his yellow shirt, fanning himself with a newspaper In two hours his nose will begin to run and his stomach will roil In three hours his chest will tighten, his pupils will constrict, he [...]

    3. Although the idea of poisonous kisses is 500% awesome, unfortunately this book fell flat for me in basically ever other way I mean, it starred Miranda, Weepy Special Snowflake Child Of Virtue who may seem like she s going to play an antihero role, but DON T WORRY ABOUT THAT HA HA HA she is pure and precious than the snows of Everest I found the entire book to be far too light and fluffy for what seemed like it was going to be a snaky and dark storyline Oh and predictable And a wee bit cliche.Bu [...]

    4. This review also appeared on Xpresso ReadsI am not entirely sure what I was expecting when I dove into Poison s Kiss I was hoping to like it because I was intrigued by the premise but even when I was excited to read it, a small part of me was worried that it would not do justice to my culture As a story, Poison s Kiss is fine The romance is way too insta but it is engaging, there aren t many plot holes and the characters are relatable The world building is EXTREMELY lacking though From the small [...]

    6. My breath feels lodged in my throat, because I want to shake him off and at the same time I never want him to stop touching me No one ever touches me Not like this, all affectionate and casual and unafraid In the kingdom of Sundari, Marinda is a visha kanya loosely translated to poison girl in Sanskrit trained to kill the raja s enemies with a kiss, with the venom that runs through her veins ever since she was a baby Kept isolated from the rest of the world by cruel handlers, Marinda has never a [...]

    7. With a description that insinuates that both fans of Maas and Aveyard will love this debut novel, it was hard to not want to pick it up Add in the eye catching cover and the alluring synopsis and it was pretty much hard for me to resist at all and I didn t find myself wanting to So with fingers crossed I downloaded this and dove in And while this was an imaginative it was also weirdly addicting Even though it truly wasn t anything unheard of in the world of YA, it was very well written and execu [...]

I really liked this one, and I liked reading from Merinda s perspective The sisterly bond between her and Mani was incredibly sweet Plus there are some scenes with snakes Yes snakesssssssssssss The romance was instaish, and I didn t really connect with Deven He wasn t bad he was just meh This was definitely a good start to this series Full review on my blog literarydust.wordpress 20

    13. They say good writing is easy reading this one will go down like a cup of tea, sweet and strong, and a plot that just keeps darkening as it steeps I soaked up the rich, lush, beautiful writing Marinda is a complex heroine drawn with an exceedingly skilled hand I loved the different shades of relationships in this book especially the complicated, uneasy friendship at its core Shields is able to wield short, simple sentences that are stunningly poignant and as pointed as daggers or, I guess, as is [...]

I m a huge fantasy fan, so I had super high hopes for Poison s Kiss, and it totally exceeded my expectations This is a great book it s swoony, unputdownable, and freaking epic The protagonist, Marinda, has had an incredibly difficult upbringing she is a visha kanya, which means she is literally poisonous and she has been forced to use these abilities to work as an assassin I loved her as a character, and I really felt for her in her struggle her internal conflict over what she is often forced to [...]

POISON S KISS is such a fascinating, compelling fantasy I devoured it quickly because I just couldn t put it down The twists The reveals The heart pounding suspense I also love the characters Marinda s sibling relationship with Mani is so emotional, and her chemistry with Deven is great too There are so many great, complex secondary characters, and no one is quite what they seem at first I m so excited that there will be a sequel Definitely recommend for fans of fast paced fantasy adventure.

    28. After reading a 5 star book I immediately picked up Poison s Kiss without reading the synopsis I had no expectation whatsoever about this one, me being quite picky when it comes to my fantasy reads But to my surprise I didn t regret picking this one up, it was AMAZING Beautifully crafted story based on an Indian folklore visha kanya poison maiden It s a great addition to my favorite fantasy series I literally live for anything folklore may it be Russian, Victorian etc It makes me curious on how [...]
