Let’s get to it…time for a long review post.
The Kill Order by James Dashner (prequel to The Maze Runner Series)
this book. was so disappointing. if you have read The Maze Runner trilogy DON’T BOTHER READING THIS BOOK. it was so boring and okay only towards the end did it get a bit interesting but i had to like…STICK WITH THE BOOK otherwise i wouldn’t have finished it.
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore (final book in the Graceling trilogy)
ah but this book. wow. it came out in 2012 but i have been savouring it. and i finally read it. and boy i did not want to put it down. it’s one of those books where you just can’t stop thinking about it. not only is it full of richly developed characters but also the THEMES AND ISSUES wow. Cashore managed to deal with many issues IN A FANTASY NOVEL and this book proves how FICTION TELLS THE TRUTH BETTER THAN SOME NON-FICTION. it’s scary and disturbing, but it’s so beautifully written and you just want to keep reading. the questions that keep arising and once you get the answers YOU NEVER EXPECTED but you understand.
so happy to see Katsa and Po, i love Giddon and Death and the kitty Lovejoy and Bitterblue thrown into a situation not sure how she is meant to rule a kingdom SHE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT. Saf with his purple eyes and teddy…ah this book is so BRILLIANT. please go read this series.
so essential the story deals with Bitterblue ruling after her father Leck..and the kingdom coping…and dealing with grief and lots of other emotions and just a lot goes on in this book. NOT FOR YOUNGER READERS
The Diviners by Libba Bray
this book haunted me. in that i read it at night and i had nightmares so i could only read it in the day. OMG IT IS SO SCARY BUT LIKE SO GOD SO YOU JUST WANT TO READ IT AND FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS. ah set in the 1920s so like what a wonderful setting and New York and just WHAT A BOOK. brilliant characters and what a story and PLOT TWISTS and just wow.
i love Memphis.
Evie is slightly annoying but then i kind of like her too. Jericho I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING STRANGE ABOUT HIM…
urgh i really did not like sam at all. so dodgy.
THIS BOOK IS FULL OF WITCHCRAFT AND SORCERY AND VOODOO AND CRAZY CRAY CRAY THINGS SO YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. may cause nightmares. NOT FOR YOUNGER READERS.
yeah so it’s about evie moving to New York and working with her uncle and how there are diviners…people with special powers like healing or other stuff…just read it! Libba Bray is one of my fave authors.
it’s the first in a trilogy so looking forward to the sequel. =)
THIS BOOK IS THE CAT’S PYJAMAS.
this quote struck me:
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephenie Perkins
this book frustrated me. Lola is so annoying and just WHY WOULD YOU BE IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE IF YOU WEREN’T OVER SOMEONE ELSE. urgh. some people. i had to remind myself she is younger than me (i feel so old reading YA now…) but still. urgh so stupid.
of course Cricket is lovely and adorable and nerdy and perfect and funny and EVERYTHING KTGHJDFLKNSVDML/JGLKDFD
but yeah most of the book i was annoyed at lola and just TWO TIMING LEADING PEOPLE ON AND LYING TO YOURSELF STOP IT. but eventually she grew up and admitted the truth. thankfully.
so yeah the final quarter of the book i as like wejgfjdgbdfjkx aahhh why am i such a hopeless romantic?
Girl Next Door by Emblem3 is the perfect song for this book. describing Cricket’s feelings lol.
something ’bout the girl next door…something that i can’t ignore…
we act like we’re just friends though…
‘i’ve seen you with no make up….so glad that you’re my neighbour…and i can’t get you out of my mind…’
DEFINITELY CRICKET’S FEELINGS TOWARDS LOLA
yeah so if you liked Anna and the French Kiss read this but it’s not as good as that book. but still cute.
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor (sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone)
OH WHAT A SEQUEL OH HOW I LOVE THIS BOOK OMG SO EXCITED FOR THE LAST BOOK EP.
zuzannah is still my fave
i really miss brimstone though
karou is so badass and just wow her strength but also it’s okay to break down but OMG THE WHITE WOLF AND PLOT TWISTS AND ZIRI and just what even.
so much going on. war between chimera and seraphim.
akiva and karou…karou is all like ‘ WE ARE NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER…LIKE EVER’ and akiva is like ‘i’m sorry but i love you and i will always love you but i respect your wishes’
basically they have kind of forgiven each other and helping each other out but like KAROU STILL LOVES HIM. don’t deny it karou.
if you love fantasy read this (read the first book obviously). a really good sequel. i devoured it tbh.
“Your heart is not wrong. Your heart is your strength. You don’t have to be ashamed.” Laini Taylor
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Weiner
meh. so dissapointed by this book. haven’t read any good historical fiction in a long time so was looking forward to this. but it was so…boring. i was barely interested in the story.
PLOT TWISTS MUCH
so yeah it’s okay. i’m not gonna be like EVERYONE GO READ THIS BOOK. if you want to read it but i really didn’t enjoy it. =(
also i like maddie more than verity
Heroes of Olympus: by Rick Riordan (follow up to Percy Jackson Series)
The Lost Hero
PERCY IS MISSING OMG
who is jason?
so confused NOT REALLY
CAMP HALF BLOOD- GREEKS
CAMP JUMPITER- ROMANS
Son of Neptune
I will trample you to death, silly Chinese Canadian baby man’.”
ELLA AND TYSON
Mark of Athena
my fave things about this series: banter between the 7 demigods, different narrators, humour, LEO VALDEZ IS HILARIOUS, percabeth
okay so if you have read the Percy Jackson series then PLEASE GO AND READ THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS because it is a continuation…the Prophecy of Seven..introducing ROMAN DEMIGODS WOAH THERE. and bringing back old characters like NICO YAY.
these books are funnier than percy jackson and just idk more fat and juicy and full of action and adventure and emotional moments and just Rick Riordan i salute you. also i want to slap you COZ THANK YOU FOR THAT SENDING PERCABETH TO FRICKIN TARTARUS.
omg i need HOUSE OF HADES NOW (it’s out in October so yays)
No Sex in the City by Randa Abdel-Fattah
i have read her other books for younger readers and so i thought ooh a new book oohh about marriage should be good. did not dissapoint. this book is really funny but also a good read. like good characters and just what a story and such interesting characters. i really enjoyed it.
it’s an adult novel because the characters are in their 20s. anyways so these friends are looking for love well Esma is looking to get married one day and seeing possible suitors via matchmakers and even *gasp* online dating. awkws.
but it’s also about her friends and their lives and their work. i really love the kids esma works with at the refugee centre and the issue about her work was really…difficult to read.
also the burden of keeping secrets and lying to people you love…this book basically tells you about the importance of trust and honesty IN ANY RELATIONSHIP.
but this book was also really cute WHAT A PERFECT ENDING OMG SO ADORBS.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
this is a really good book. yes it is about vampires but so what? IT IS HOLLY BLACK. MEANING SHE IS A BRILLIANT STORYTELLER. the characters are well developed, the story is good and full of plot twists and humour.
i like tana because she’s a realistic character. she does break down and cry but she also picks herself up, saves her friends and takes care of the people she loves. but above all, she takes care of herself and is such a badass. the things she’s done…woah.
Gavriel..now i dd NOT SEE THAT COMING. but what a nice surprise. so funny.
Aiden is such a jerk but it’s funny how he sticks around and really he means well.
i love Pearl and Pauline and Valentina. =)
Jameson is really cool.
i don’t know if this is a stand alone novel or a trilogy but THE ENDING WAS PERFECT.
so yeah it’s about vampires and coldtown is where the infected/vampires go to live full of lavish parties or just full of desperate people trying to be turned. it’s quite a place but the story if good it’s not an annoying vampire novel.
it talks about what it means to be human, what is vampirism…and it’s about love and friendship and morals. i really enjoyed it so i hope you do too!
Currently reading: Every Day by David Levithan
more reviews to come: More Than This by Patrick Ness, House of Hades by Rick Riordan, Allegiant by Veronica Roth, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and more
this film was SO FUNNY like i knew it’d be funny but it was SURPRISINGLY GOOD and just aww and i really enjoyed it. tbh i only wanted to see it coz of DYLAN O’BRIEN but it ended up being a good movie too! =D
if you love the internet WATCH THIS MOVIE!
but it’s weird coz my dad is actually like a techno-geek like he knows all about the latest gadgets etc and he knows more about the internet than i do lol
THIS MOVIE OMG SO EMOTIONAL LIKE I WATCHED IN ON THE PLANE AND JUST MY FEELS
i legit teared up coz
his motivation and optimism is admirable. seriously. he WANTS TO BE A SCARER SO HE GOES TO UNI AND MAKING FRIENDS IS HARD BUT HE WORKS HARD AND SUCCEEDS ACCEPT THINGS DON’T GO WELL AND JUST OMG.
but like when he felt lonely and stuff i could totes relate.
mike wazowski has inspired me to do well at university.
thanks Disney Pixar
seriously WATCH THIS MOVIE.
omg don’t even bother with this movie. i watched it on the plane and wow it was just stealing, drugs, sex and alcohol. that was it. fun times. the only interesting this is BASED ON A TRUE STORY like some teens legit used to break into celeb homes and steal their things but HELLOOOO CCTV ARE YOU DUMB?
also it was cool seeing into celebs homes like WOAH NICE CLOTHES AND JEWELLERY AND SHOES AND BAGS AND sadly i aint rich so no walk in closet for me.
but this movie is a waste of time unless you REALLY want to see it go ahead and enjoy.
you know what. i liked this movie. i enjoyed it. YES.
it IS different from the book. but i still laughed and enjoyed it and was like noooo omg don’t do that whyyyugkrshjfd
Simon was hilarious. tbh in the first book i hated him coz CLACE but in the movie he is more likeable.
and jace…well JAMIE IS JACE i approve.
there were some weird wtf are you doing moments but overall a good performance from the actors.
the action was pretty good like WOAH THERE SHADOWHUNTERS AND WEREWOLVES AND VAMPIRES AND DOWNWORLDERS
and magnus bane hello there 😉
the cast is really hot and i enjoyed the movie. UNFORTUNATELY THOUGH CITY OF ASHES MIGHT NOT BE A MOVIE. THEY’VE PUSHED IT TO 2015 so no filming and just sad news really.
READ IT BEFORE YOU SEE IT. or after. but it’s a funny series and FULL OF FEELS and i liked the movie. =)
it was okay. not like OMG THIS IS AMAZING. i liked the plot twists and the ninja/samurai fighting so cool and what skill fighting with a sword woah. also definitely looking forward to X Men: Days of Future Past
this movie was so cute and quite a good movie actually. the director Josh Boone is directing the TFIOS movie so yeah. also i wanted to see if Natt Wolf is a good actor coz he’s playing Isaac in TFIOS.
ALSO LOGAN LERMAN ASDFGHJKL;
so the movie is about love and writing coz the dad is an author and both kids wanna write. and it’s about discovering love and falling in love etc.
my friend had a Disney Day so we watched Hercules and they were gonna watch Mulan but i had to go. but hades tho
my fave Hercules song is I Won’t Say I’m In Love
this is legit one of my fave movies ever and i was watching at my friend’s house and one of her friend’s was commenting on th emovie AND I WAS LIKE
