Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass 4.5/5 starsThis book was AWESOME! I was expecting a lot more to happen, but I like it anyways.Throne of Glass is a kickass- feminist fantasy. It’s like Mass read the Selection, picked up every error there was, and created this better version! The fantasy world was beautiful. Albeit, I couldn’t always keep up, but for the most part I thought it was well developed. I imagine… Read More

Just a quick update, I picked up two new books from the library: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas and The Evolution of Mara Dyerby Michelle Hodkin  So I’m PUMPED to be reading those soon. However, I’m not sure how soon is soon. I’m always working, including Saturday and Sunday. There’s a party on Saturday night, so I may bail and go read. My anxious mind needs its rest. the other one

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin Pretty cover ❤ Overall, I feel a bit lost. I still have this “huh???” reoccuring as I process the ending. This is how I felt after the first chapter: This book made me feel like I kept on skipping chapters. I was constantly questioning why to so many things. I don’t usually hate on Mary-Sue’s, because usually I DO find them enjoyable. But I’ve just finished… Read More

Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout  Ugliest cover ever You wouldn’t think I’d give this book 6/5 stars with the ugliest cover I’ve ever seen. But I have. This book makes up for the previous, thank god. I thought it was going to focus around the kind-of-boring-after-4-chapters DOD Area 51 hostage. But hooray- surely not. So many romantic moments, and not like the Opal moments (which were meh), like REALLY CUTE/I WAS “AWWW”ING SO… Read More

Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout It didn’t succeed its previous instalments, unfortunately. However, I found near to no grammar errors so woohoo! I think I didn’t like it as much because the couple was happy? We all know when the couple isn’t happy; it’s more interesting to read. Or maybe it is just for me… I did enjoy the romantic moments- and rest assured, there was stacks! Katy barely mentioned her love for… Read More

Abandon by Meg Cabot The pace was 3.5/5 stars for the majority of the book, but the last 30% made up for everything. I didn’t like how the flashbacks were not in chronological order (that made me confused). It also ended up having a sort of Insta-love, which disappointed me. Like John didn’t really turn up until the end of the book, and even though she was alive for another 2 years, somehow… Read More

The Cage by Megan Shepherd 4.5/5 stars It lost .5 because I don’t ship Cassian and Cora. But I have enough hope for the next book to have Lucky and Cora reunite. And Nok and Rolf were super cute until Nok went a lil crazy (that sucked). There was honestly nothing wrong with this book? It had great sci-fi/romance moments, and an awesome range of diversity that I really appreciate. The beginning… Read More

I feel like I haven’t sat down and recounted my day in ages. I woke up at 5:55, as my mother was busying around the house. It was her 49th birthday, and she had to go into hospital to remove her large, painful varicose veins in her legs. She’s had them my entire 16 years of life, so I will be shocked to see what she looks like without them. She was… Read More

Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout 5/5 stars I’m sorry, I can’t retrieve my review of the first book. In summary: I love it so much. 11/5 stars for that book. This series is one of my favourite of all time. Transcended my expectations! I cringed at a few scenes and spelling errors, here and there; but overall I loved this book. There was definitely more angst in this one, which I’m unsure if… Read More

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare (my fave)With over 10 other books, it thought for sure Cassie has reached her peak in writing. I was, thankfully, mistaken! THIS HAS TRUMPED ALL OTHER SHADOWHUNTER BOOKS. I honestly thought Cassie couldn’t top Clace or Wessa or the painstaking angst inside the halls of the Institutes; but I was wrong. Jemma/Blackstairs/whatever you want to call them- are now my favourite couple. Like ever. Of all books. Not… Read More

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell 4.5 stars (.5 taken off because of the typos and the ending) I only just finished the book, like, a minute ago. And I’m shaking??? This was not AT ALL what I thought the book was going to be about. This was darker and way more angsty than I imagined. I loved it.  But at the same time I hate it because I read books for… Read More

Cruel Beauty by  Rosamund Hodge I would’ve given it a 4/5 but I finished the story: – still hating Shade (seriously, he was written in about 2 chapters in and suddenly they’re in love???)– not understanding what was going on. Ever. I feel like I was skipping chapters and missing heaps of info. It was written in such an odd way, I honestly felt dizzy (I was that confused). I’m glad I’ve read… Read More
