A very disappointing read.


Review:

Ink - Alice Broadway

I really don’t know what to say about this book, I was really looking forward to it and it totally let me down. I really didn’t like any of the characters, and I felt it took a really long time to get to the plot. I was so bored that I found myself skipping ahead, just so I could get to the end. And I didn’t know it wasn’t a standalone, so it surprised me, when just as it was starting to get interesting, the book was done. And I just have no desire to pick up the next book, to find out what happens next. I still think I might be being nice given the book 2 1/2 stars.

A fantastic ending of the series.


Review:

A Conjuring of Light - Gustav Schwab

I really loved this book, it was definitely my favorite of the three books, with a gathering of shadows, being my least favorite. I definitely think AGOS, just suffered from dreaded second book syndrome. While this one took me on a journey from the very first page, until the very end. My favorite character was most definitely Rhy.i liked both Kell and Lily, but I don’t know if I would have loved the book so much ,if there wasn’t my baby Rhy in it. There were a couple of times I wasn’t drawn into the story as much as I wanted or thought I would be. But not enough to make me want to give it a low rating. Or to throw the book across the room or anything dramatic as that.

One of my gripes is that I wish the end of the book was tied up a little bit better and I didn’t like some of the relationships. I did love Rhy and his love interest. My favorite parts also was when they separated and they all had different things they had to face.

Pretty good read, especially around Halloween.


Review:

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein - Kiersten White

I have never read Frankenstein, but I still really enjoyed this book. I thought Elizabeth was an interesting character, I didn’t hate her but I didn’t think she was a really great person either. I didn’t like some of the things she did in regards to Victor,but I understand why she acted the way she did. I didn’t like Victor at all, to me I thought he wasn’t as flush out as I would have wanted him to be. I can understand why the author made him this way, because Elizabeth was the main character and she wanted us the readers to be more drawn out, out of the two

 But I just wanted to feel his characters motivated a little bit more. 

I really loved the storyline, and I did go back and read about Victor’s character in Frankenstein. And I liked how the author kept some of that Victor but also changed things about that Victor as well. 

One of the things I didn’t like was the ending, I felt it needed to be just a little bit longer, the ending just felt a little rushed, and I wish I could have connected more with the other characters. But I still really enjoyed the read.

It was an alright read.


Review:

What the Woods Keep - Katya de Becerra

Really don’t have much to say in regards to this book. I really didn’t care for the characters so much. It wasn’t the worst book in the world but it wasn’t the best, it was just a ok book. I don’t know what it was but I just didn’t enjoy as much as I was anticipating. I can’t even remember the characters names, and I don’t really want to find the book, just to look up their names. I think it’s because I read one of my absolute favorite books of the year before I finished this book, and that book was Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton. 

So just take my review at face value, and read it for yourself. I didn’t like the ending of the book either, I don’t know if there is going to be other books, or if this is a stand alone, but to me, the ending was left off in such away, that the story could be continued. 

Also I am going to try and review other books, that I have read and haven’t gotten around to reviewing yet, or just forgot to review. So in the next day, and coming weeks, I am going to try and get all of them up on my blog.

Awesome End to a Fantastic Series.


Review:

Kingdom of Ash  - Sarah J. Maas

I still can’t believe that this was the last book in the series. Some books I loved more than others, but it was one heck of a ride. What a journey for everyone, but especially for Chaol, Dorian, and Celeane/Aelin.

Don’t want to go into spoilers, so I just want to say for me I loved the way it ended, how everything wrapped up. I still love Dorian the most, but Chaol, and Aedion, I feel in love with more in this book. 

This book made me laugh and cry, and I wouldn’t change a minute of both of those emotions. I will miss my Aelin, Rowan, Chaol, and Dorian. But I am positive we will see them again someday, and I can’t wait!!!!!

It was again one Hell of a ride, from the first book Throne of glass ,until the ending book, Kingdom of ash!!!! Thanks so much Sarah j maas, for the good, happy, parts of the entire series, and even for the sad parts, and the times, you even made me angry, or upset, and for all the tears. Because that’s what a great writer, is suppose to make you feel.

Favorite books, Heir of fire, and Queen of shadows. Least favorite books, The Assassins blade, and Tower of Dawn.

Still not a favorite from the series.


Review:

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré

So on my YouTube channel I am participating in a readalong called potterwatch. Each month we are reading a Harry Potter book and watching the film that goes with it. Last month we did the first book and first movie. So this month it’s book 2 turn. I still have to watch the movie for the book.

So this is only my second time reading this book, I never reviewed it before, because at the time the book first came out, I just read books and didn’t rate them. If I would have back then, it would have probably been only 3 1/2 stars, but on the reread, u really felt I liked it much more this time around. I love the flying car scenes, the ending scene with Harry and Dobby. Things I didn’t like and annoyed me was any scenes with Lockhart, and any scenes with Heromine and Molly, falling for what he was trying to sell. Heromine is suppose to be so freaking smart, but falls for that shit. And at first Dobby gets on my freaking nerves, but of course I start to love my adorable little house elf. 

Really can’t wait to read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the first time I read it, I would say it was my favorite book and movie as well. So I can’t wait to see if any of the positions of my book love changes. 

I will tell you my least to favorite, which I told you already my favorite and least favorite. 

7. chamber of secrets. 

6.the Goblet of fire 

5. The sorcerer’s stone 

4. Order of the Phoenix 

3. The half blood Prince 

2. The Deathly Hallows 

1. The prisoner of Azkaban. 

So there we go
