I absolutely love this because it’s like Thorne is trying to use one of his old flirting tactics of picking up girls, but Cress doesn’t fall for it. She doesn’t even notice. And Thorne just laughs it off because he realizes it isn’t gonna work on her.

Book Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik [5 stars]

This was the first book I read by Naomi Novik, and I just completely fell in love with her writing. As a fairytale retelling, Novik manages to capture the language and magic of the original story - the narrative strongly reminded me of some of the stories I’ve read by the Grimm Brothers - while still creating a book which is wholly unique. There is powerful world-building, and the magic and plot are beautifully woven together with vivid description into a compelling story. Uprooted is also surprisingly funny for a story so embedded in fantasy. The characters are clumsy, sarcastic and utterly charming, and you can’t help but fall in love with them. This book has romance, strong female friendships and adventure, and I cannot recommend reading it enough.

TITLE: Nemesis

AUTHOR: Brendan Reichs

RELEASE DATE: March 21, 2017

RATING: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

SYNOPSIS: He killed me. He killed me not. He killed me.

It’s been happening since Min was eight. Every two years, on her birthday, a strange man finds her and murders her in cold blood. But hours later, she wakes up in a clearing just outside her tiny Idaho hometown—alone, unhurt, and with all evidence of the horrifying crime erased.

Across the valley, Noah just wants to be like everyone else. But he’s not. Nightmares of murder and death plague him, though he does his best to hide the signs. But when the world around him begins to spiral toward panic and destruction, Noah discovers that people have been lying to him his whole life. Everything changes in an eye blink.

For the planet has a bigger problem. The Anvil, an enormous asteroid threatening all life on Earth, leaves little room for two troubled teens. Yet on her sixteenth birthday, as she cowers in her bedroom, hoping not to die for the fifth time, Min has had enough. She vows to discover what is happening in Fire Lake and uncovers a lifetime of lies: a vast conspiracy involving the sixty-four students of her sophomore class, one that may be even more sinister than the murders.

MY REVIEW: What in the world just happened?!
This book was AH-Mazing! I can’t express enough how much I love this book. Written in duel point of views which I love and is one of my biggest preferences. It’s such a thriller you’ll find yourself wanting more even after you’ve finished the book.
First of all, the intro traps you, the summary itself.. and those few lines right before you start the first chapter..

THE SUN RISES. BUT NOT FOR ME.
I KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS.
WILL HE COME SOONER OR LATER?
I DON’T KNOW, BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER.
HE’LL COME.
AND WHEN HE DOES, I’LL DIE.

After I read the synopsis, I was like ‘Drop everything, must read this now!’ and that’s exactly what I did..
We meet Min a young introverted girl who lives a nightmare every two years.. she is murdered.. Why? She doesn’t know? Is it real? She doesn’t know.. What she does know is that the people around her are keeping secrets from her and she will do whatever it takes to know the truth, along with her best friend Tack.. (Whom I Love by the way) they embark on risky break ins to find out what really is going on in their small town..
They find out a lot more then they were hoping for..
There’s also Noah a quiet, rich kid who hangs out with the school jerks,, Noah and Min share something in common, he also lives through these nightmares.. of being murdered.. only to him they’re only nightmares.. dreams he wakes up from and makes nothing more of it.. it’s only until he has an encounter with Min that he realizes, he’s not alone, and there’s so much more to his story then he ever would have been able to find out if it wasn’t for Min.
There will be twists and turns with each turning page and you’ll love it, and just when you think you know what’s about to happen.. BOOM! Something unexpected..
I definitely recommend this read, check it out from your local library, borrow it from a friend, order it online.. do what you need to do to get your hands on this book!! ❤️Ellie RG

“The only way to clamp down on my energy is to erase my emotions, and so I fold them each away, one by one. My sorrow turns to anger, then to ice-cold fury. My soul curls in one itself in defense. I am gone. I am truly gone.

I am not sorry.”

  • Me to people : I love Malec so much
  • Me in my mind: I jut love them both so much like Magnus Bane a High Warlock who's lived for so many hundreds of years and loved so many people and watched people close to him die and even after all that he still willingly loves and I just can't with him and Alexander Gideon Lightwood, this elder brother who's always been in the shadows of Isabelle and Jace , when he's noticed by Magnus he just lights up like a spark and the spark just grows as they both love each other more and more and their love is just so beautiful I can't with it like I just can't say how much I love them both and how much I love their love which is this magnificent thing that's against all odds and Magnus u apt lover and Alexander u sassy lil Lightwood I just can't with both of you and you both made me want that kind of love too.

So I just finish reading the last book yesterday around midnight because I was pretty eager to be done with it, simply because it was 82 chapters and I have a tight schedule to follow. Anyway, *SPOILERS*, well you all know the drill; I will only point out stuff that raises a brow or two. Let’s start of with the 1st book. I really loved the 1st book because it was on point on what I imagined a sullie court would be and it was really good…like seriously good. The chemistry with Tamlin and Feyre was mind-blowing and my heart goes out to Tamlin. The 2nd book got me pretty skeptical because it feels like i got dump with cold water and now the story just shift 360 degrees. To be honest, I was just mad at how the author kinda go with the way the story is. Any reader will see that Tamlin isn’t perfect, he is entitle to make mistake and choices that may not be good ones but are to him the right ones at the moment. I just felt the author butchering Tamlin’s character all through out the story and he didn’t even get the happy ending he deserves. That was my pet peeved the entire series. Feyre to be honest, I just didn’t like her as the heroine simply because I deemed her to be the most selfish and inconsiderate of all the characters. She didn’t even stop and think of the consequence and choices she made and NEVER even one apologize for it. She acted however and whatever pleases her and has little to no regard to anyone else. Atleast Rhysand was painted noble. Which is why it took me months to be able to finally relent myself to reading the last book. Now that I have the 3rd book left so many loose ends. Lucien/Elain for example… Cassian/Nesta…. Tamlin/his happy ending…. etc. So many. Putting that aside, the story plot itself is very beautiful, the action and everything in it especially the war part which i like but still have questions…. ugh too many loose ends. Final thoughts? I’d rather just reread book one and stop there. I think book one was enough.
