Hey Guys, I thought i would let you guys know a bit of what is happening and why during the first half of  December i wont be as online as i wish i would be.

So next week on Tuesday, my marking period Finals begin and i have not started to study yet [oops]
But i am trying to do my best and be online reviewing as soon as possible

I have started "These broken Stars by Amie Kauffman" I am not sure that is how you write it but im in a hurry for a thing i have tonight. I will edit it when i get time ;]

Christmas Break Starts on the 18th of December for me and i will hopefully have a review y then, if i finish a book.

Happy Reading while I'm gone guys :]

Mockingjay part 1 Review

Warning: This review may contain spoilers.

First of all i will start by saying that i did not read the book before the film, i may have read the book two or three years ago and i did not reread it.

I feel that in a lot of moments during the film they were just like dragging along the time, like to fill in the two hours, some moments during the film were not necessary.

But there were some really intense scenes, the ones that have seen it know what I'm talking about, yes you guessed it, poor Effie and her outfits, and of course what they did to Peeta.

Every time Peeta was on the screen in Disctrict 13 i got the goosebumps, guys I couldn't take it watching Peeta my baby there being hurt and every time thinner and thinner.

I did not like Gale and Katniss and the thing between them oh no nopes not at all. i am not a fan of gale and i will never be, sorry everyone.

I enjoyed so much how sassy katniss was some times, and the rebellions at the districts. i got goosebumps a lot of times during the movie i must admit.

The part where they went into the capitol might be my favorite part of the movie so far. And as my friend said, to round this up, i think that the movie should've ended right when Peeta was chocking Katniss, to build up the suspense to the next movie.

Hanging tree is stuck in my head and Jennifer has a beautiful voice, I liked this movie but not as much as i expected.

Waiting on Wednesday

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?
Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story—a story that has never been told … until now.
Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from WINTER, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.
Oh my god guys, Levana's Story. Oh God I am not ready for this. We get a brand new book, Levana, a lot of Levana, an excerpt from Winter, And it comes with full color art.
I am thrilled for this book to come out, I will try to get my hands on a hardcover copy of this book asap.
Let me know if you are as excited as I am for this release.
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she’s just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she’d ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

Third book in the Lunar Chronicles series and I think i might be addicted.
Marissa Meyer did an excellent job again with this book, so much happened in this that it feels like i have read  books just by reading it.

The writing as always is amazing, we get to be in Levana's point of view for a bit, which i always love. When you get to see from the "evil" character's perspective, its a whole different experience.

Marissa Meyer never stops amazing me, us, with this story. I honestly cried some times during this book, and Wolf, gosh.

And the cliffhanger at the end, AGH I can't wait for more.

Overall this book is amazing so you should pick it up, i cant say much because its the third book in the series, but i definitely can not wait till Winter comes out in November 2015. One year, *cries*.

Go start this series now.

I gave this book ★★★★★ on Goodreads.

Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison--even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive. Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Lets start with the fact that Marissa Meyer once again did it, she wrote an amazing book, action packed, funny, and so much more it is just so good, even heartbreaking moments. If you haven't read this yet, i dont know why you are here and not reading this series.

In this book we follow Scarlet AND Cinder, like we dont only get from scarlet but cinder as well, yay cinder. just like the first book it is written in second person.

As the first book, this one has some pretty intense biting nail, screaming "no's" and gasping moments. This series is just an emotional ride, and a really good one i must say. I cant say much about this book without spoiling the first book but oh well, I'm doing my best.

My favorite part might be all the action thrilling moments where i just couldn't stop reading and kept biting my nail, this is a really fast paced book and you dont even notice you finished it you are just like "no, i want more, i need more." And that makes this book great my friends.

Great story great characters, really really loved it and can't wait to start the third book in the series.


I gave this book ★★★★★ on Goodreads.

Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Mara Dyer believes life can't get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can. 

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. 
There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love. 
She's wrong.

This book was for the most part really good for me, I was captivated through the whole book plotting theories trying to figure out what is going on, trying to guess whats true or not. and i must admit i gasped a lot of times.

The story follows Mara obviously and she just wants answers and through the whole book You , he reader, and her will try to figure out what happened or what is happening. 

What I really love about this book is that the one who tells the story, Mara, is not a reliable source, because not even she knows what is going on and that leaves you so confused and wanting some answers.

What did not work for me were the answers, The author could have done so much more but unfortunately it did not match my imagination or theories, maybe that is what disappointed me, but still it was pretty good.

In the next book i hope there is less cheesy stuff, in crucial moments the characters would start getting all romantic and it really just wasn't the time for that.

I would recommend this story to anyone, its a fun read and will leave you gasping more and more and so confused and sometimes even terrified.

I gave this book ★★★★ on Goodreads

Review: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. 

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. 

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. 

Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

The hype around this book is well deserved, this story is AMAZING the mystery of finding out who the killer is, keeps you reading and you can't stop. This book is just amazing i really enjoyed it.
As you can see this story is mainly centered around Celaena Sardothien, but it is told in second person and sometimes tells about other characters in the story as well. I really liked the writing of Sarah J. Maas and how she set the mystery in a way that you really want to keep reading.

Celaena is just SO badass and so sassy, her sass is just so great and funny, sometimes i admit i ended up laughing my ass off because of her sass. And besides that, she is just amazing and so skilled and just overall great.

The prince.. well what can i say, i dont like the prince at all and not liked how that turned out for the most part of the book, so arrogant ugh.

Chaol chaol chaol, that is who i want, he is just great and amazing just as badass as Calaena but yet sweet and kind and sensitive.

Nehemia is my favorite after all because she is so amazing and so badass, i know I have used the word badass a lot but that word pretty much describes this book. Nehemia is so cool though and i really enjoyed everything she did and how she did it.

My favorite part of this book would be every time Celaena gets to say a sassy comeback AH its just so great.

In the next book Crown of Midnight, I REALLY HOPE that Celaena's mind changes and well if you've read this you know what i mean. but i have heard that the books get better every time, so i guess that is good and will be fun, I am really looking forward to reading more of this AMAZING story.

I realize just now that this is my first high-fantasy book I have read, so hooray for me :] I am so glad i really enjoyed it, i will definitely be picking up more books of this genre in the future, i don't even know why i was scared to try it out.

I really recommend this book to anyone and specially o those who have not read anything yet high fantasy related because this book is great and will really make you appreciate this genre like it did with me.

Hello everyone!

I have just finished exams at school, in that time I got sick and got a virus and well now im sick. But I have days off school and ill try to read a lot these days.

I started reading Throne of Glass to get out of my reading slump (which I managed to do) so as soon as I finish a review will be coming up and more books to read :)

As to my blogging device, I have been blogging on my phone for a few months now and it is really uncomfortable.  But I finally got my computer fixed,  the only current problem is the wifi antenna but I will try to get that fixed as soon as possible.

Ive been working on a few posts where you guys can learn more about myself and other things I like.

That was my update. Till next time! And keep reading :)

Waiting on Wednesday #1

Synopsis :
I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Yes guys my first Waiting on Wednesday.  I actually wrote this all Tuesday last night but it didn't save unfortunately. So here I am at school typing this.

The Young Elites by Marie Lu is a (I believe this is the right term to use) high fantasy YA book coming out on October 7th if im not wrong. I have heard really great things about Marie Lu specially because of the legend trilogy. Which I haven't even read yet because well you know there's that thing when you have no money. And then you forget about the book and stuff.

A lot of people like Marie Lu because of her writing style as well. I hope I get to like her as well just like everyone has.

I dont know that much about this book but thats how I like to read books, without knowing much about them. I think thats how you enjoy it even more.
This is my first high fantasy book. Because well I've never read any book in that genre before. Im just scared that the first one I read will be bad for me and that I'll end up being put off on that genre.

I found out about this book thanks to Reagan from Peruseproject on YouTube and I got excited about it because well Reagan can make you excited about almost anything.  I also saw that Jesse (Jessethereader) was really excited about it in his last book haul.
This is what I do the whole day I see people talking about books and then I want them.

I have a lot of high expectations for this book and I hope that it will be great. So go get this book as soon as it comes out!

Till next time and Happy reading!  :)

On my shelf #5

Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

Yes guys The Giver! I got this book some weeks before the movie release because I really wanted to read it and then watch the movie but school had me so busy and then the plan was to watch the premiere first.

Turns out that we ended up watching 'Lets be cops' instead and I decided to read this book sometime in October's holidays and right after I will read if I stay.

On my shelf #4

These are books on my shelves (E-books as well) that I haven't started reading yet.

Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

This book sounds A-MA-ZING I saw it on I think Reagan (peruseproject on youtube) talk about it and I have been wanting to read it ever since.

I forgot the name of the book and I think ive spent more than 2 months searching for it. And now I FINALLY HAVE IT.

This is going to be my next read probably. 

If you have any comments on the book let me know :)

Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins.

Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.

Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him—and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y'all beg for more.

Let me just say this is one of the few books that made me laugh ut loud not even like a smile or a little laugh but laugh and fall off my bed.
This plot is not slow but it keeps you laughing and on the edge of your seat. Yes like a movie. Full action packed and really funny.
Its told by Harper Price and her sense of humor is just great.

Theres definitely some character growth going on in the book so if you like that. This book has it.

(spoiler alert) I did expect the love triangle.

But this book was overall amazing and kick-ass and action packed and funny I habe no words to describe how great of a book Rachel Hawkins wrote.

This is a must read for everyone.

Review: In Lucia's Eyes (Een schitterend gebrek) by Arthur Japin.

This is a book I had to read for dutch so I read the dutch version of it. The only thing I knew about it was that it was like about true love and sacrifice.

This story in the beginning did work for me the plot kept going back and forth in time I think it was 2 or 3 different times in Lucia's life. Till the first 2 meet each other and keep on to catch on to the third. At first this was very confusing to me. I can read dutch but it doesnt go as easy as english. So I had a bit of difficulty. 

Some points in the book it gets so deep like questioning reasons of our existence and stuff. I really liked that.

The book is very descriptive about the characters. Its written in Lucia's point of view and her way of thinking just blows your mind. Sometimes the writing is very 'quotable' and beautiful.

The relationship between Young Lucia and Giacomo (If you dont know who im talking about its okay) was de cutest one ever. Like the summer they spent together and then all of the promises they made. It was a strong love but yet so innocent. It's a love that is so sweet and innocent. Ah♥

My favorite part of the book is the training Lucia got and when she meets Zelide (not sure I pronounced it correctly)

Lucia is a very strong woman and all the things she does for the innocent love she keeps in her memory is just unbelievable.


I realized who Giacomo was after I read the aggreements and stuff. I feel stupid.

What I would change about it is that some parts just drift off andher thought about a subject become too much. Those I would cut off. For the rest. Awesome story.

I would recommend this to anyone that loves love.

Review: Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

A lyrical novel about family and friendship from critically acclaimed author Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.

Beautiful story! I really liked it. I was highlighting my favorite parts all the time (which were a lot tbh) and I really really liked it.
Sometimes I thought Aristotle was whining a lot. But thats just me :)
This book you can read it in one sitting because the story just goes by fast and quick.

Aristotle tells the story. And he has such a relatable voice I really liked how he saw things and interpreted them.

Aristotle... angry angry angry.

Dante is so adorable in my opinion omg. Danteee <3

Dante and Aristotles friendship,  there was a moment I was so scared it would just break apart but this story ah its just amazing how they both grow with each other and there's so much growth in both of them and it's mostly about finding out themselves and their place in this universe.

I really like this book. So you should absolutely read it too.

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move.

No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.


Okay so lets start. The plot WAS AMAZING WHAT A STORY LIKE WOAH. My mind is blown. Such a great book. I didnt even feel it was a retelling. IT WAS AMAZING

Cinder Ah She was so badass and cool and HER SARCASM THO I LOVE HER.

Prince Kai, GOSH Prince Kai can i get one? Please? <3

This story is overall amazing and awesome and cool and funny and everyone should read it.

I hate myself for procrastinating this for so long. So stupid of me.

Review: An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail
K-19 broke his heart
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun--but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.

Another John Green book! I would say hooray because I love John Green books. But this one. I'll just say woo. Because I expected a lot more of course.

The plot... well with John Green I always get so caught up and addicted just from the first pages and then I cant stop flipping the pages. But this one, it felt like it was just someone else's book. It may be because I have really high expectations about John Green. But I got interested in the plot about 60% in the book. It is a good story and all but I didnt get so caught into it.
All of the huge information parts that Colin said most of the times, it really annoyed me. And besides that all of the Anagrams and I found the idea of the Theorem kind of stupid.

The writing style was okay. But I really like the John Green where you can quote beautiful sentences from better.

I loved Hassan, and Lindsey, she was one of the main reasons I was into this book after all, I always thought she was waaaaay more interesting than Colin.

I wouldn't recommend this book. Just if you want to read it, then do :)

On My Shelf #3

These are books on my shelves (E-books as well) that I haven't started reading yet.

Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.

Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.

Yes another rainbow rowell book I have but havent started yet! Reason is (looking up for excuses, I know I know) But I am really looking forward for this book, it's young adult ive heard AMAZING things about it and I honestly like reading a book without knowing the synopsis at all, and I only know its about "extraordinary love" which sounds amazing to me

I just trust the reviews and go for it. So I will dive in soon into this book :)

Review Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

The Pre-Sloane Emily didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the one who yanks you out of your shell.But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just... disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There’s just a random to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try... unless they could lead back to her best friend. Apple Picking at Night? Ok, easy enough.Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a Stranger? Wait... what?

Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go Skinny Dipping? Um...

Everyone had so many great things to say about this book so i decided, why not? and it takes place in this time of the year, summer, which would be a perfect summer read.

The story is told by Emily, and it starts at the beginning of the summer. The plot goes sometimes to the past where you get to know moments of Emily and Sloane together. At the beginning I don't know why but the plot didn't seem too interesting for me apart from the list. I decided to still give it a try since I had already started reading it and I can't just stop reading a book, which I am glad I did. Because around chapter  I FINALLY got into the story which i ended up loving, the book is great.

At first I didn't really like Emily, because while being in her shell I thought she was just too annoying. But then you see some character growth and specially that is what kept me interested in the story, how Emily was finally deciding for herself instead of being dragged by Sloane to do things.

The love interests AHHHHHHHHH <3 just perfect.

I recommend this book, because it might not have worked so much in the beginning for me, but a lot of people loved it and its a really great summer read.

Everyone likes it and I have no excuse to why I haven't started it yet. I guess I just want to finish my currently reading books first. But everyone says that this book is a must and this series as well

So I guess ill give it a try after all. As soon as I finish the books im currently reading. And it would fit perfectly with the booktubeathon, because it has red on the cover! :)

Review: Four a Divergent story collection

Complete your Divergent library with Four!

Fans of the Divergent series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by Four: A Divergent Collection, a companion volume that includes four pre-Divergent stories plus three additional scenes from Divergent, all told from Tobias's point of view.

Readers first encountered Tobias as "Four" in Divergent. His voice is an integral part of Allegiant. Readers will find more of this charismatic character's backstory told from his own perspective in Four: A Divergent Collection. When read together, these long narrative pieces illuminate the defining moments in Tobias's life. The first three pieces in this volume—"The Transfer," "The Initiate," and "The Son"—follow Tobias's transfer from Abnegation to Dauntless, his Dauntless initiation, and the first clues that a foul plan is brewing in the leadership of two factions. The fourth story, "The Traitor," runs parallel with the events of Divergent, giving readers a glimpse into the decisions of loyalty—and love—that Tobias makes in the weeks after he meets Tris Prior.

Includes three exclusive scenes!

Well before starting this you should know that Four is my favorite character from Divergent. Diving into his thoughts and things he has done was an amazing experience. Sad to know this is the last from the divergent series we will ever get...

Everything amazing! Whatelse can I say? It was just great. Another masterpiece by Veronica Roth.

There are some things I never expected that Four would do/ would've done. And the way he thinks about Tris just amazing. This book was great I loved it.

If you read and liked the Divergent story. This book is a must-read for you :)

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

In Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life--and she's really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it's what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath's sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can't let go. She doesn't want to.
Now that they're going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn't want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She's got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can't stop worrying about her dad, who's loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

Amazing story!! I started this book knowing almost nothing about it. Which I love to do. The plot was amazing. You find out things that I really did not expect. Tables turn, plot twists. Just amazing. The pace goes fast when nothing important is happening and kind of slow when something is, which is amazing.

The writing style was great and amazing and I have to admit I fell in love with this book. The way that at the end of each chapter there's a Simon Snow fragment from the books or from the fanfiction. Is amazing. I felt like some times that fragment was relatable to what was happening at that moment with Cather and what she was feeling at that moment.

My favorite Character is Levi. Gosh Levi! The smile and the hair and just everything ahh. Even when I was supposed to be mad at him, I just couldn't! I couldn't, he's just the best. I want a Levi.
Reagan is my second favorite because come on. She's so badass and has a whatever attitude.
Cather is just like me in so many ways. I could relate to her from the first chapter already.

Well, I can't talk about the relationships without spoiling so.. we'll skip that.

I recommend this book to everyone please read it. It will make you so happy. And I request a second book please. It was too good to be over so soon.
I. Need. More. Levi.

“Do you see what I mean?” he asked. She nodded. “Cows bad. Buffalo good.”
“Cows good,” he said. “Bison better.” Then he gave her a lazy, lopsided grin. “This is all really important, you know—that’s why I’m telling you.” “Vital,” she said. “Ecosystems. Water tables. Shrews going extinct.” “Call me when you’re done, Little Red.” No, Cath thought, I don’t even know your number. Levi was already walking away. “I’ll be in your room,” he said over his shoulder. “Call me there.”

That was the teaser guys. Funny part of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I'm really enjoying this book. I hope you guys enjoy it too when you read it :)

On my shelf #1

These are books on my shelves (E-books as well) that I haven't started reading yet :)

"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "

From the award-winning author of Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, and Landline comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel about love in the workplace.

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?

Yep! That's right, Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. I tried to start this book. But I was reading it too slow and I couldn't get in the story. I get confused easily. So I decided to put it aside for a bit so I can read other books :) I think I will start reading it again when I finish my other books.

Review: The Maze Runner by James Dashner

"If you ain't scared, you ain't human." 

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers--boys whose memories are also gone.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out--and no one's ever made it through alive.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

This book was just amazing, the way you barely know whats happening is what kept me captivated by this book. i couldn't even sleep because i was thinking about it and trying to figure out whats happening. The most part of the book you just want answers ( which you get in the end. ) And that is why this book keeps you captivated you just want to know what is really happening. Most of the times the chapters end in cliffhangers, and hat just motivates you to keep reading to find out whats happening and it is great. James Dashner will make you gasp, more than once.

The story follows Thomas (of course) and he has no idea of what is going on, and just like you, He wants answers, while he is struggling to fit in with the Gladers.

Not going to spoil or anything but the thing Teresa can do is pretty awesome. I love it so much, just so awesome!

My favorite part of the book is definitely when you get answers. Its just so satisfying.

I wouldn't change anything in the next book. If its like this one, It will be Amazing and i cant wait to read it!!!!

I recommend this book to everyone its just so great!
Once you get caught up in the story you cant stop!

I gave this book 5 stars out of 5 on Goodreads.

Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

First of all let me start by saying that this is another book that i absolutely LOVED in the series.

This time there are less information dumps so that you can get the story flowing more fluently, This book is absolutely amazing and you have really badass moments in this book that are just AHHH so great!

The writing wasn't centered in Clary this time, it switched and went over to other characters sometimes, which i really liked because you can see what is happening in other places, and from different views.

In this book I will only discuss one character; Simon.
In this book you get to see another way of Simon, and how he REALLY loves Clary.
No much Isabelle in this book which is a shame because she is really awesome, but you get to know some more about the Lightwoods and their past.
The Inquisitor, Ugh such a hateful and stubborn character, i really wanted to slap her in the face like all the time, shes just so stubborn.

My favorite parts are the ones where Magnus and Alec are in but SPECIALLY with the Fearless rune, if you read the book, you know what I mean. 

I have to discuss the really cute relationship between Magnus and Alec, BECAUSE I ADORE THEM SO MUCH THEY ARE SO CUTE AND I JUST AHHH I SHIP MALEC (Or whatever the shipname is).
The whole Clary, Simon, Jace thing... I wont talk about that because I don't like any of it, at all. i think a new character has to come or something for Clary.

I really recommend this book, specially if you have it when you just finished city of bones just JUMP RIGHT INTO IT.

I gave this book 5 (4.7)  stars out of 5 on goodreads.

Review: Sonny Boy by Annejet van der Zijl.

Another (and the last book) I had to read for dutch this year. I finished reading this the day before the exam.

This story is a love story set from 1929 to 1945 so it includes The World War 2.
Its about a dutch woman. That gets in an affair with a Dark Skinned guy from Suriname that immigrates to The Netherlands. They go through a lot of rough stuff due to their affair and the woman , Rika, gets hated by her family because of leaving her children behind.

Overall I hated how the author had to write HUGE information dumps about everything that is happening WORLDWIDE. It was totally unnecessary! Then the author was always talking about a lot before getting to the point.

I didn't like the book so much I really loved the love story. Hated the ending.

I dont really recommend it.

Rating on goodreads : 3 out of 5 stars

Review: Splintered by A.G. Howard.

Uploading this again because my internet did not upload it the first time.

So this story is about Alyssa Gardner. She is a descendant of Alice Liddell, the little girl who inspired "Alice's Adventures in wonderland." By going down in the rabbit hole. Basically her family has a curse. And thanks to that curse her mother is suffering, and she might go down the same path. To break this curse she has to go to wonderland and break it there. But wonderland is nothing as it seems...

The story is told from Alyssa's point of view and the plot is really fast because I think the whole story happens in a weekend? It just goes by really fast. And if it was by my choice I wouldn't have put the book down and just have finished it in one sitting. But school as always gets in the middle.

I really liked the writing and how things were described and the paintings and landscapes and all the characters. Amazing.

I think Alyssa did some really bad and fast decisions like not thinking things through first and just going by nice words that morpheus said.

I was mad at Jeb in the beginning for the whole Tae thing but later in the book I started liking his character a lot.

Morpheus. Well what a bastard and a lil devil he is. I did not like him and everything was always physical with him so he's a no no.

I think the best part is kind of in the ending where all of the plot twists just come hitting you and the face and you're like woah after woah.

I really loved this book. I love and enjoy fairy tales/story retellings. And this one was an amazing retelling of an amazing sotry.

My rating is of 4 out of 5 stara on good reads and I recommend it to anyone who likes retellings :)

Review: Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman

This book gave me a hard time to start and finish. Another book that I had to read this year for school. I have to admit that I really hated this book.

The story is about Harri Opoku, hes in 7th grade and in the beginning of the book a guy (he barely knows but calls him his friend) gets killed. The book is basically about him trying to "investigate" with his friend Dean to find out who killed the guy.

The writing was horrible. The story is told from Harrison's perspective and he just jumps from subject to subject just suddenly. I personally think 75% of that book is just bla bla bla. It is like the author was just trying to fill in the pages. At some point the pigeon Harri befriends starts "talking". How the pigeon talks is kinda poetic. Only thing I liked about the book.

I seriously did not like this book and I dont recommend anyone to read it.

My rating is 1 out of 5 stars on goodreads

Review: De Engelenmaker (The Angel Maker) by Stefan Brijs

One of the many books i had to read for school this year, yay.
This is my last book i read for school so far and i got told that it was the best of all of the books assigned so i was really excited about it but at the same time it was difficult to avoid spoilers. So the most of the book got spoiled to me before i even had it.

The story is really interesting and it has to do a lot with biology, I recommend that you have a bit of knowledge on the DNA sector before jumping into it because otherwise you wont  understand half the book.
The explanation of these terms don't go deep.
Basically the story is about a mysterious doctor and 3 kids he has.

In the second part of the book they go explaining the Doctor's past. I found the second part, that one, really confusing because they keep jumping between 2 times in the past till they collide, that kind of writing i find really interesting but confusing. The story starts mysterious and suspenseful and then jumps into a , rather, boring past and then goes to the story in the present again.

I really liked the ending and the way the characters were described was a bit good, there were a lot but a few that were actually important, the bit of German in the book was confusing me a bit too due to my lack of knowledge of German.

The writing style was good but at the end in the E-book version, i noticed that a few ' were missing from the dialogue, besides i think the writer went too deep into describing the scenes and the explanation just gets too long and that's why I lost the suspense of the moment.

I wouldn't highly recommend this book but if you want a suspense thriller book with a lot of biological terms, this is the book for you :) .

I gave this book 4 (3.5)  stars out of 5 on goodreads.

Hello there! Well these are the 2 books I will be reading for this readathon. Yeah only 2. Why? Because I'm having a pretty difficult time with both of them, the plot is so slow.. I dont know. But yes I am reading them for school and I have to finish them this week so why not just put them as my TBR for this readathon? :)

I will not be officially participating. I just found out too late and I dont want to be compromised because I have another exams to do as well this week. So it will be pretty busy but I'll try to fit in my reading as well.

Review : Looking for Alaska by John Green.

I read this book around May 2013 and I really love it. I was really glad I bought it. I started reading it without knowing anything about the book at all. I didn't know anything about the plot and I think thats the way everyone should read it because it has more impact like that. Fascinating plot, I really loved it specially the first part! So much fun! I enjoyed it so much. I couldn't put the book down because I had to keep on reading the amazing things that were happening!

Like always, John Green's writing style is just perfect. So many quotable moments I just loved it. John's books are just a masterpiece.

I wont describe any characters because its important to just dive in knowing nothing about it :)

I really recommend this to everyone. Please read it. Please.

Review : City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments #1)

This is one of my favorite books ever! i really loved the plot i couldn't put the book down it was just amazing to be in the shadowhunter world.

I have to say it's the first time i read a book that is like a narrative, a third person telling the story and i really liked it. i had trouble understanding in the beginning what was happening but then i got it and it was just great.

I really enjoyed Clary, she was an amazing character, just amazing. i love how she is all clueless in the things and keeps asking stuff.
Jace was just so funny, like seriously, so sarcastic and his comments. I just laughed a lot thanks to him.


I honestly think the best part was at the greenhouse where they...

I would really recommend this book to everyone, a really fun read and just rollercoaster of emotions. I really want City of Ashes now.

Movie Review: Divergent

First of all i have to admit, if you haven't read the book. this is an amazing movie! But i did read the book and that's why i think personally that the movie sucked.
The plot is so much different than the book, I expected a few changes, but not so many! I think that the explanation of the factions with Shai as narrative wasn't that good, i think they could have done it another way. The actors were amazing, Theo and Shai (OTP) and the movie Christina isn't the one i pictured.
But there's always something bad... The confusion between will and peter. Yes thats right, those two really looked like each other and i always had to ask myself who is that? Will or Peter?

I really expect Insurgent to be better.

Review : Enclave by Ann Aguirre

The plot in the beginning was captivating, as in every dystopian book i read, i want to find out how that world is. So that kept dragging me. The book is filled with amazing action moments that i really loved.

You can start noticing a romantic connection between 2 characters really early on the book too, which I liked. Mostly i couldn't put the book down, it's a fast paced story that i really liked.

The writing style was okay, i could say it was just normal. At some points i really liked how they were comparing the fighting and dancing.

I kind of connected with Deuce, but at some moments she was making the most stupid decisions and choices i really wanted to slap her.

I can really compare Fade with Tobias from divergent. I really liked the way he is with Deuce no matter what, and how he cares for them ( the rest if you read the book. )

I really liked the love story but at some moment there kind of was a love triangle that i didnt like, mostly because of the actions in the past of the other character. I really did not like the love triangle.

I think that the best part is in the half of the book. I just really loved the changes, and how they had to adapt and stuff.

I would recommend this book its a fun and action packed story, but in the next book ( Outpost ) I would really like for Deuce to become a bit more smart, and no love triangle.

I gave this book 4 (3.5) out of 5 stars on goodreads.
