“In the new world led by the Rebooters, former Proxy Syd is the figurehead of the Revolution, beloved by some and hated by others. Liam, a seventeen-year-old Rebooter, is Syd’s bodyguard and must protect him with his life. But armed Machinists aren’t the only danger. People are falling ill—their veins show through their skin, they find it hard to speak, and sores erupt all over their bodies. Guardians, the violent enforcers of the old system, are hit first, and the government does nothing to help. The old elites fall next, and in the face of an indifferent government, Syd decides it’s up to him to find a cure . . . and what he discovers leaves him stunned.”
Okay, lets talk about Guardian. I think this was an amaziiiing sequel. I can’t decide if i prefer Guardian or Proxy, the first book of the series. The storyline is super interesting and full of action. I couldn’t put it down! I never want Alex London to stop writing, i just really enjoy it. The world he created is fantastic and brillant.
Syd and Liam are two completly different characters, but i love them so much. Their relationship is complex. Liam is such a fascinating boy. I love reading from his POV.
So, all i can say now is READ THIS SERIES.
Guardian : 5/5
“The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them…” (Goodreads)
I absolutely love this series. It was soooo good, but i wouldn’t say it was better than The Mortal Instruments. One of my favorite things about Cassandra Clare’s writing is her way of creating relationship. Jem and Will friendship is the best. It’s powerful and strong. The story is interesting, but i mostly keep on reading because of those characters. I’m pretty sure Jem is my soulmate. Yes, i am in love with an other fictional character. Don’t judge me. Tessa is also amazing. She is smart and she’s a bookworm. What more can we ask for?
The last book in the serie is my favorite, but it also KILLED ME. It broke my heart in so many ways. I don’t cry much while reading, but this one destroyed me.
Clockwork Angel : 4/5
Clockwork Prince : 4/5
Clockwork Princess : 5/5
The #bookstagramathon read-a-thon ends tonight at midnight. It’s time for me to share my wrap-up.
I’ve read 5 books this week, 1860 pages.
– Allegiant by Veronica Roth
– Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
– Locke & Key, vol #1 by Joe Hill
– Proxy by Alex London
– Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
I’m very happy with the number of books i read this week. It was my first read-a-thon and i don’t think it will be my last. It’s also fun to see what everybody else is reading.
“Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all” ( goodreads)
Well, this was an interesting read! I’m a big fan of horror and i wanted to read this for so long. It has a very strong storyline, it as a perfect mix a mystery and macabre. It’s creepy in a good way with some disturbing imagery. The art is fantastic. I’m not really into those characters for now, but i’m hoping it’s going to change with the second book because i really enjoy this story!
locke and Key, Vol #1 : 4/5
“Syd’s life is not his own. As a proxy he must to pay for someone else’s crimes. When his patron Knox crashes a car and kills someone, Syd is branded and sentenced to death. The boys realize the only way to beat the system is to save each other so they flee. The ensuing cross-country chase will uncover a secret society of rebels, test the boys’ resolve, and shine a blinding light onto a world of those who owe and those who pay.
This fast-paced thrill ride of a novel is full of breakneck action, shocking twists and heart-hammering suspense that will have readers gasping until the very last page.” ( goodreads)
This book is perfect. PERFECT. Like, wow. I love absolutely everything about it!
The story is fantastic and original. I love the idea and i was intrigued to see how it would all turn out. Proxy was, for me, very hard to put down. I just couldn’t stop reading. Alex London knows how to create a fascinating world. His writing is great. But what i love the most of this book as to be the characters. Knox and Sid are some of the best characters i’ve seen in a while. They are smart, lovable and different. I love their relationship and how they change during the book. I love how funny they are.
The ending was a surprise, not gonna lie, it was unexpected. It broke my heart.
Just one more reason to pick up the next one.
Proxy : 5/5
“Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It’s company policy.) But they can’t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives. Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill can’t believe this is his job now- reading other people’s e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke. When Lincoln comes across Beth’s and Jennifer’s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can’t help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.By the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late to introduce himself.
What would he say . . . ?” (Goodreads)
I think Rainbow Rowell is an amazing writer. Fangirl and Eleanor and Park were both perfect. attachments was perfect too. The writing is fantastic, like i said, I love Rainbow Rowell. The characters are great. I just adore Beth and Jennifer, i love them so much. They are funny. I was scared at first about that Email thing, but i actually enjoyed it. We really get to know those two girls via their emails. I also like Lincoln, he is a sweet guy. I swear everything about this book screams cutenest. It’s a short and fun read. It made me feel happy, haha.
