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
