Awesome End to a awesome Series!!!!!!


Review:

Ruin and Rising - Leigh Bardugo

I love this whole awesome and amazing series. I am so sorry to say that I still didn’t like the Darkling at all, I did like the certain something that we found out about him. WOW I wasn’t expecting what happened to Nick, that’s what I call him, at all. And what we found out about Mal, I kind of thought that’s what it was going to be, but wasn’t 100% positive about it.

I really am still deciding on what I feel in regards to what happened to Alian ( sorry can’t remember how to spell her name, and don’t have the book near me.) Also in regards to what happened to the Darkling in the end.

I am so super excited that I read this awesome, and amazing series.

Just as fantastic as the first book in the series!!!!!


Review:

Siege and Storm - Leigh Bardugo

I really enjoyed this book just as much as the first book Shadow and Bone. I was happy that there was more Mal then the Darkling. Even though Mal at times really did stupid things that wanted to make me throw things, I still understand him and his actions more than I do the Darkling. I also really love Nikolai/Sturmhond, a whole lot even though I wasn’t so sure about him in the very beginning, but boy did he really grow on me in the end. I thought parts were boring but not so bad that I would take any stars away from it. So of course its getting 5*stars from me. I really can’t see how the series end, and yes I am reading the last book, Ruin and Rising right now. So hopefully I will be finished with this one in a few days. 

One of my book goals for 2018, is to start reading more slowly, so I am trying not to finish a book in one day. Because usually if I love a book a whole lot, I can finish the book in a day. So far I am doing a pretty great job. Of course if the book isn’t very long I will of course most likely finish in a day, especially if I am really enjoying the storyline.

Off to an awesome start of my reading of the New Year!!!!!!


Review:

Everless - Sara  Holland

I really loved this book a whole lot. I was so happy that I was right about a certain character in this book. I really loved Jules I loved that she wanted to help her father so much. I am not sure how I feel about her father. The guys in the book were Roan and Liam, I loved that Liam was a bad boy!!!!! Roan I don’t know how I felt about him either. I really want to know a lot more about Liam, so I hope he’s more involve in the next book. Both of the guys weren’t in the book a whole lot, I feel like Liam was in it a little more. The main bad character and Roan’s finance we’re in the book a lot more. 

The book is definitely at first a set up on what is going to take place in future books, but the last 100 pgs really started to pick up and get really interesting and definitely ends in a major cliffhanger. Which is really going to drive me crazy to have to wait for the next book in this series.

I thought the book was a 4 1/2*star book, but had to give it the full 5 *star rating because while I guess right about a certain individual, two other things that happened or was revealed at the end really surprised me, and I most definitely loved it but was sad about one of these things.

So I most definitely will be buying the next book whenever it comes out!!!!!!

Thought I did a Review on this one.


Review:

Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance - Ruth Emmie Lang

Boy I didn’t realize that I never did a review on this book. I ordered a box from Once Upon a Book Club, in case you don’t know what it is, well you order a book, and it comes with other things but you can’t open that gift until you get to the page on that certain gift. The box was kind of expensive but also a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the book and the gifts that came with them, and really it made reading the book more exciting because you want to get to the page that is written on that page, and so on.

I am really glad I did this because this isn’t a book I would choose for myself and I really would have missed out on such a pretty awesome book.

I really loved the character of Weylyn, he was quite a character of mystery, and very interesting individual to read about. The story to me is kind of hard to explain but its also pretty interesting, because it’s mostly people that meet him that is telling the story on how they meet him and how that came about and how he touched their lives. It was also interesting because very weird and awesome stuff happened when someone was around him. I am so sorry I am probably making the book confusing but it’s hard to explain without giving away a lot of spoilers. And it will also take away from the magic of the book, at least I feel that way. Again I just loved this book and thought that it was really unique and very interesting one.

WOW this Audio for the Book is just WOW!!!!!!


Review:

Illuminae - Jay Kristoff, Amie Kaufman

I have to say I am not a huge audible fan, but if all audios were as fantastic as this one, I would listen to them a whole lot more. 

I really loved Ezra, and Kady so freaking much, and how cute were they, when they communicated with one another. I really thought the story and some characters were really pretty awesome. I got chills going up my arms whenever the voice of Aiden came into play. I still can’t decide if I liked Aiden or not. I could understand its logic but not how it went about it. I don’t want to say to much about the story, because I am afraid I would give a lot of spoilers out. The ending was just super WoW, I would actually say the whole second half was just freaking creepy and Nuts. And it took you on a Freaking Awesome, fantastic, and one hell of a ride. I would definitely recommend this book, especially as an audible book if you could afford it. Also if you have the book, get the audible and following along with the audible with the book. Because the book in regards to how it’s set-up is not to be missed. I only have the e-book for this one, but for book two, I have the e-book, audible book, and hardback, as well.

I can’t wait until I have time for the second book, and for the last one in the series to come out.

Liked it better than I thought I would!!!!!


Review:

Eliza and Her Monsters - Francesca Zappia

I really liked Eliza and her monsters a lot more than I thought I would. I really just bought the ebook because I heard a lot of readers talking about how much they really loved the book. So when I found out yesterday that it was on sell for $ 2.99, I thought to myself why not buy it.

WoW I really felt bad for Eliza when people found out who she was, and then all the feelings she went through. I can understand her panic attacks, because I get them sometimes, and I feel like I can’t breathe and like I am going to pass out. I really didn’t start getting into the story until she meet Wallace.

Lets talk about Wallace, boy when he told his story about why he is the way he is, boy my heart about broke for him. I did get a little upset at Wallace towards the end, but only for a few seconds, then I was in love with him again.

The ending had me almost in tears, at that is what made it a 4* review and not a 3* review. I also have to say how much I loved Eliza’s brothers, they were just to cute. I really also loved her two friends that are her online friends. I loved how they reacted after the reveal in regards to trying to calm things down. 

So I am so super glad I gave this book a chance.

Reading progress update: I’ve read 51%.


Illuminae - Jay Kristoff, Amie Kaufman

I really am enjoying this audio book a lot. I really like no surprise here, but of course I am going to say Ezra, sorry if I might have spelled his name wrong. I also really love the main character of Kady, she’s a total bad-ass. And this audio is just making the book come alive.

The creepiest character is the AI is that what its call it? Which is called Aiden ( not sure how they spell its name?)

More to come once I finish the audio-book. Can’t wait to see how this one ends!!!!!!
