Just might be my favorite Book of the Year.


Review:

Thunderhead - Neal Shusterman

I freaking loved this book and what a hell of a ride. I just couldn’t believe all that went down throughout the whole book. And that ending, how did Neal Shusterman, come up with that cliffhanger ending? I just can’t wait to find out when Toll is coming out, especially after that ending. 

Still freaking love Rowan like crazy. I love someone that can be complex and have some badness in them. But you know that they have a soft side to them as well. 

I also liked Citra a lot more in this book  than I did in scythe. And I loved the new character, not going to say the persons name, in case you haven’t read the story yet. But I wonder what is going to happen with this person next.

Another fun Read.


Review:

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow - Jessica Townsend

I really loved this book and I really love the characters and the plot. Probably one of my favorite middle grade book. I couldn’t believe how much fun I had reading the book. I loved that I started the book yesterday morning and finished it this morning. I can see why some readers compare this book to Harry Potter, but at the same time, you can tell that the author isn’t trying to be Harry Potter. And I freaking loved it for that reason, but also just because it was a really good book and really enjoyable. If you want to read a book that will only take a day or two to read and not take it so seriously, but won’t bore you either. Than this book might be the book for you.

WOW this book was definitely worth the Hype!!!


Review:

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo - Taylor Jenkins Reid

I really don’t know what to say about this book but boy did it have me freaking crying. While the character Evelyn Hugo had a lot of flaws, I freaking loved her, and what a freaking life she had. My favorite of her husband’s was definitely Harry. 

I just loved the book so much and it was so nice to love a book so much that wasn’t fantasy or scifi. I do love both of those genres, but once in a while you want to branch out of your comfort zone and go and try to jump into the ocean.

So this is one book I feel that was worth the hype.

Disappointed Me.


Review:

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air) - Holly Black

I was so disappointed in this book, I really thought it was going to be such an awesome book, but that so wasn’t the case. I will continue on in the series, because I love to give books another chance, especially if it’s a start of a series. But if the wicked King also let’s me down, I won’t read the last one. 

I really didn’t care for any of the characters. Whenever I start to like Jude again, she goes and does something that makes me not like her again. 

I have a love hate relationship with Cardan, his a bully but he also has times especially towards the end, that you can see that he does have a sensitive side to him. 

I can’t stand Jude’s twin sister at all. The only character I really like a lot is Vivi. 

I do love that it shows that fae have a vindictive personality. And they don’t sugarcoat it. The ending is what makes me want to continue on with the series.

Reading progress update: I’ve read 128 out of 370 pages.


The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air) - Holly Black

Ok I decided to do a reread of this book, so I could decide how to rate it. I am about 1/3% done, but so far, I am still not sure how I am feeling about this book. Does anyone feel the same way about this book? The only person I am liking right now is Vivi. I really don’t like Jude at all, or her twin. And I am not sure how I am feeling about Cardan. And especially his so called friends.

Better than the first time around.


Review:

Crown of Midnight - Sarah J. Maas

Really enjoyed my reread much better than the first read. The first time I read it, I gave it 4, even though it was more like a 3 1/2 star read. 

My favorite character is definitely Dorian, like always, I just freaking love my Prince so much. Chaol still isn’t my favorite character and he does some really stupid things, but I still feel sorry for him. Either choice he made, he would still be screwed. Celeane I still have a love hate relationship with, I do feel sorry for her, in regards to all that happens to her throughout this book. I also paid a lot more attention to the book this time around. I love what we find out about Dorian in this book. I am going to start probably in the next couple of weeks Heir of fire, which was my favorite book, my first time reading the series. So I am excited to see if I feel the same thing this time.

Cute little read


Review:

The Complete Adventures of Charlie and Mr. Willy Wonka[COMP ADV OF CHARLIE & MR WILLY][Paperback] - RoaldDahl

So far I only read the first book, which is willy Wonka and the chocolate factory. I didn’t read the glass elevator one, but I will be next week. If I decide to do a update review, it wouldn’t be until next year. I will probably just do a review for just this story.

I really enjoyed the first story it was just a funny cute little read and perfect for a readathon, the readathon I read it for was, #tistheseasonathon.

Favorite character like always are Charlie and his grandfather grandpa Joe. This is the first time I have ever read the book, I have watched the movie (the one with Johnny Depp,) so many times. I always love the different ways the naughty kids get their just reward. It was a book that I really needed for the Holiday season.
