Book Reviews : Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

I actually liked this for Scarlet because in many ways I could relate to her. We were both close to our Grandmothers and have the same relationship with them. I thought the way she met her Wolf was clever and I liked this book because of that. I was not a fan of the insta-love.

Book Reviews : Dune by Frank Herbert

I finally finished this after two years. I loved the complexity of the world and the subtle but obvious politics in the plot. This was definitely one heck of a book.

Salt to the sea by Rutha Sepetys {spoiler free book review/talk}

● Rating: 5☆

“January 1945. Four immigrants. Four secrets. Everyone of them - born in a diffrent country. Everyone of them - prescuted from tragedy, lies and war… (…)”

Hello my bookish friends! 🤗 How are you? I hope you are fine.❤ Today I decide to write and talk with you guys, about “Salt to the sea” by Rutha Sepetys. I love when we communicate. This book review/talk is spoiler free. It’s my first review that I post so I hope you like it. 🤗 So as you may know I was reading “Salt to the sea” by Rutha Sepetys. 4 words: This. Book. Is. Amazing! I really loved it! It deserves 2016 Goodreads Choice Award for Young Adult Fiction!! It’s young adult, so the young reader can understand what the word “war” really means. As a young reader this become one of my favourite books. It’s contains so good lessons and quotes you can live by. Rutha Sepetys’s writing skills get you so much in the story that you read and read…and for a second you realize that you can’t put the book down. Well, this happen to me. “Salt to the sea” have short chapters but emotionally maybe you are going to need more time to read it. ( I read it for 2 days btw. But I’m definitely going to re - read it. 🤗)

In “Salt to the sea” we have four main characters -Joana, Florian, Emilia and Alffred. Every chapter is from a diffrent perspective. We have chapters from Florian’s prespective, Joana’s, Emilia’s and from Alfred’s. We have secondary characters - The shoe poet, Eva, Klaus that are near to my heart as much as the main characters.They are strangers. They don’t know each others until the fate brings them together. It’s the end of WWII, 1945. Winter. Cold. Snow is falling from the sky…and bombs. Innocent people are dying. Everyone thinks that is going to be next. They meet on the road in the chaotic countryside of East Prussia. And then nothing is the same again…

My rating for this incredible beautiful tragic story as I said above is 5☆

We were strangers until we become a family - Joana

If you liked my spoiler free book talk/review you can go and give this book a try if you haven’t yet. 😊


P.S: I am going to post some photos of “ Salt to the sea” the bulgarian edition. Stay tuned!🤗 Bye for now! And enjoy your reading!🤗

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater Review
  • Hey Bookies! Long time no talk!
  • I have a couple of reviews coming for ya'll, I've just been uber busy with summer travelling and I haven't gotten around to it yet.
  • This review is *spoiler FREE!*
  • First and foremost, The Rave Boys was not at all what I was expecting. I was thinking this was a romantic contemporary style book about a girl who falls for a guy who is brothers with these other boys; the Raven boys. Boy was I wrong!
  • While this book does have some romantic elements it surely isn't contemporary. I'd classify this book as a paranormal contemporary, since the events that occur aren't 'exactly' fantastical.
  • So in case you don't know anything about this series, here's a brief summary. TRB follows Blue Sargent, who is the daughter of a psychic of sorts. While Blue doesn't possess any form of psychic abilities, her presence makes readings stronger. She is no newbie to talk of the dead, and ghosts and spirits do not scare her. When Blue meets Gansey, a high school Aglionby student who is obsessed with finding a long lost king, Glendower, in hopes of him granting him a wish, her life is turned upside-down... But not in the way you may think. Because Blue has seen one of the Raven boys before... In a graveyard on St. Marks day- the day where those who will die within the next year show their spirits. Blue knows she shouldn't get too close to these boys, especially if one of them is going to die. But with this quest, and the other secrets that are unlocked before her... It's nearly too hard to keep away.
  • So as I was saying, not at all what I was expecting! I thought these charters were really interesting. I liked them because they weren't perfect. Gansey, who would be easy to write as the swoon worthy male character is actually flawed by his obsession with finding Glendower. Adam could also be written as swoon worthy, but is unable to stand up for what he wants at times. Then there's Ronan and well... he is the baddie of the group. And Noah well... You'll have to read the book to find out his flaws! ;)
  • I liked Blue as well. I thought her reactions to what these guys were after and what they were doing was actually quite realistic given that she has been around strange paranormal stuff all her life. I'm a super scaredy cat when it comes to that sort of thing so to see her walking head on into dark forests and graveyards had me feeling a bit more brave! Ahh... How books transport us...
  • I haven't read a paranormal contemporary book in well... A really long time. I'm not continuing with the series right away (I'm REALLY into the To All The Boys I've Loved Before series by Jenny Han rn) BUUUUT that isn't to say I never will. I'm interested in where this series will go, and it's always good to broaden your reading!
  • 3.75-4/5 stars!
  • Have you read TRB???? I know it's been in the world for a while but I'm just hopping on the train now. Share your thoughts with me!
  • Thanks for reading!

Book Reviews : American Gods by Neil Gaiman

As much as I don’t want to say it, this was like Percy Jackson for adults. The main character did seem a bit blank but towards the end of the story, I started to appreciate why that was. I also enjoyed how this book wasn’t centered on just one mythical diety or religious figure. The new gods totally make sense and I was impressed with all the “new gods.” All in all, I liked this book.

Finally after two days of drinking coffee that were made in a hurry, I finally made time to take my work to my local coffee shop and have a nice iced latte, it was such perfection that it was gone before I could even think about taking a picture!
After 3 hours of sticking my nose into my work, I can now leave with an open schedule for my evening so I can spend time with the people I love. -

I finished “ Accidental Universe!” Soon I’ll post a review on it for everyone to read if they are interested! I will say that I highly recommend it to book worms who enjoy a non-fiction read about science!

Book Reviews : Bone Gap by Laura Ruby

I wasn’t sure I’d like this book. It even took me a while to get into the story. But I love that I was taken by surprise with how much I liked this book. The use of magical realism here is pretty clever and I appreciated the slow burn with how it was used in the story.

Book Reviews: The Graduate by Charles Webb

I didn’t like this book. I didn’t like the lack of expression in the dialogue. I didn’t like how I lost sympathy for the main character as the book went on. I understand that the history behind this book and what it represents is much larger than I can currently grasp. It was just okay for me.

Book Reviews: Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by Rick Riordan and John Rocco

The old Greek myths told from Percy Jackson’s point of view was the very best way for me to learn about the ancient Greek Gods. I’d say the author kept it PG considering the myths are much more graphic. His touch of humor made this so easy and fun to read.
