Cress, Scarlet, Cinder and Fury

*this post includes affiliate links I have with Amazon*

Hello everyone! So I recently finished Fury by Shirley Marr, and all the books written in The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer up to now (aka Cinder*, Scarlet*, and, Cress*). And let me tell you, they were all great books with the bestest to least bestest going Cress, Cinder/Scarlet (they were pretty much tied), then Fury (by only a bit).

First about Fury: it was pretty good. The story was well written with great character development and pretty good storyline/plot. There was a bitsy bit of romance, some mystery and a lot of awesome, just, I don’t know, good plot/storytelling/storyline.

Now for the other books….

The Lunar Chronicles are to. die. for. They are awesome! So a while back, when Cinder first came out, I started reading it but got a bit bored for some reason (looking back Idk how that happened, the books are so exciting!) so I gave up. Now, Cress came out, the third book in the series and people were raving about it on Goodreads, so I decided to retry reading Cinder and immediately fell in love and just read whenever I could. I was obsessed and in love with the books; I couldn’t put them down. They were just so good! There was a perfect mix of actions, plot/storyline, cyborgs, amazing writing, witty-ness, romance and just pure awesomeness. The best part for me was that all these books were based on Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and next Snow White; all stories that practically everybody has heard/read/listened/watched. They are for sure officially in my top ten favorite books, they are that good. Read them and then tell me how much you love them because they are just sooooo good!

Being A Reader

What it is Like to Be a Reader

To be a reader, you get to experience thousands of lives just by
Turning a page.
To be a reader, you get to connect with the millions of other people
Who rage, love, cry over and despair over the same books
As you do.
You learn lessons you aren’t taught in school and learn about human
Emotion, human thinking and the so many other things that are oblivious
To many.
To be a reader means you get to experience life in a way
No one could have dreamt of.
To be a reader, you feel emotions you didn’t think would happen
Because of a book.
To be a reader, you get to live.

I read too many books for one post: part two

Hello again! So this a continuation from the last post. As I said before, I read the Masque of Red Death duology by Bethany Griffin, which were some pretty good reads.

The first book, Masque of the Red Death* was pretty good. It took me a couple of chapters to get into it but by the time I was done with the book, I could have been interviewed by McDonald s – I was lovin’ it. (funny, eh?) Anyway, all in all, it was pretty good. There was adventure, fun, romance (there was a bit of a love triangle), surprise, deception, and death – all in all in a great book. I can’t pick a favorite character and also don’t ask me if I’m Team Will or Team Elliot; they are both awesome.

So, moving on, I read the novella that comes after the first book, Glitter & Doom, which is about how Kent and April met and what happened next. It was awesome (a bit boring in the beginning though) since one of my fave characters is/was April, I very much liked it.

The next book I read was Dance of the Red Death* which was also as good – the series was just great in general. There was great writing, great characterization, and everything was timed out very well. The only thing I was confused about was the timing because it seemed like it was set both back when the bubonic plague raged on and also in the maybe future… I don’t know but the date setting was kinda confused.

Anyways that’s pretty much it, tata for now!

I read too many books for one post: part one

*this post includes affiliate links I have with Amazon*

Bonjour world! So as the title so blatantly explains I read too many books this week that they probably won’t fit in one post but let’s see how it goes. I read (in the order I read them) Tweet Heart by Elizabeth Rudnick, Dead Is Just A Dream by Marlene Perez, Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin, Glitter & Doom by Bethany Griffin, Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin, Hollywood Confessions by Gemma Halliday, and, Send by Patty Blount. Like I said above, there is a lot to cover so, let’s get into it….

Now Tweet Heart* was a book written through emails, blogs, and tweets which I thought was awesome and it involves a lot of romance-ish stuff, deception, fun, friendship and high school; basically well-written drama. The book was average-ish, though, because there was nothing spectacular about the book except for maybe the way it was written but that was it.

Now Dead Is Just A Dream* was, in my opinion, way better (by about a gazillion) than the other two books from Perez’s spinoff series… I think it was probably due to the fact that it felt as if it came a bit back to the original story with more supernaturals, people, and death/weird stuff happening which I absolutely loved. Props to Perez for a fantastic read.

So I am going to save the MRD series for the next post so onto Hollywood Confessions*…..well this book was absolutely fun and funny. There was a pretty good amount of “standing up against the misogynistic views of some men” which I loved, romance, a couple of death threats, a lot of mystery and a totally rad (ya I just said rad) dwarf named Gary. It was all in all a great read.

Now for the (somewhat last) book; Send*. Now this book was moving; like moving enough that I, who never really cries because of a book, bawled my eyes out at the end. Ya, it was that moving. It was about bullying, love and high school – a horrible combination. It was a pretty good read. Read it. You will honestly cry because of it.

Anyways, see you for part 2!

Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson – Review

‘Elllo world! So I just finished reading Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson. The book was ok, kinda average as far as plot/storyline goes but the way it was written with some blog posts and no specific chapters just different times as headings for new times….which was cool and which I loved. There was a surprise but it was a bit of a boringsh surprise… I still liked it and now just need to find the impossible; the 2nd book in the series lol ….anyway tata for now!
