30 day book challenge
Day 9: a book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marisa Meyer
I was worried because I usually don’t like books with queens and kings, fairy tales, robots, or space. BUT HOLLY SHIT THIS SERIES IS AMAZING! THERES ROMANCE BUT IT DOESNT OVERWHELM THE PLOT, AND NEITHER DOES THE FAIRY TALE, AND THE WOMEN ARE SO STRONG AND INDEPENDENT HONESTLY THEY DONT NEED A MAN THE MEN MOSTLY NEED THEM! One of the best series I have ever read. I wish I could go back in time a kick myself in the ass for not reading Cinder earlier.
(Not all my pictures)
As far as I can tell, this book has done pretty well for itself (earning a 4.2 Goodreads rating with over 11,000 ratings since it’s release in January). However, not a single person I’ve asked about it has even heard of it, let alone read it! This book was one of the best books I’d read in a LONG time. Let me know if you’ve read it, and if you have, what you thought about it!
I can’t believe it took me so long to read this book. I think I found my favorite King so far. It’s not even horror, it’s tragedy. It’s the story of 99 suicides, a metaphor for life, in my opinion, and the gap between death wish and the concrete reality of death. I started reading it like a criticism toward the passivity of an audience, but it was so much more! I could babble all night about this book, but the fact is, it’s the kind of book to be read and most of all felt. “You don’t know, said McVries. You’re dying and you don’t know why”
30 Day Book Challenge
Day 1: Best book you read last year
Yep it was January 13 of last year when I read TFIOS I could’ve read it earlier but I know after reading some reviews that this is gonna be a tear jerker novel and I wasn’t ready yet after reading Looking for Alaska. Waited for months before I got a copy and yes true as they say, so heartbreaking.
I’m a sucker for bittersweet romance novels and this one was heartbreakingly beautiful. I loved how It got me literally into an emotional roller coaster. The first half got me laughing my head off and giggling like a lovestruck teenager and the other half part crying my heart out. It was one sick love story that I think I’d toture myself reading all over again.
There are 30 days left before I leave home again for college. Blame it on the trimester system. To keep this blog more active and to make the remaining 30 days meaningful, I will be doing another 30 Day Book Challenge starting tomorrow, April 21. I hope I can keep this up till May 20. Hooray for 30 days of book posts!

My ‘favorite’ ma character is my childhood crush. I fell in love at 9 when I first lay my hand on Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. It was the first time I liked a character this much. He was the sinister teacher, hated by everyone. 'He’s mean!’ was what all my friends used to say to me about Snape at the time (until the Deathly Hallows really), 'He’s not! You’ll see he’s not!’ I didn’t know how right I was at the time but I took his side every time I could because I just knew there was more in Severus Snape than the mean, dark teacher. Dumbledore trusted him after all. I always admired his bravery, his courage and loyalty. The fact that he made bad decision, but decided to change, to fight for what was good. I admired him and I still admire him. “You dare use my own spells against me? Yes. I’m The Half-Blood Prince.”
