I love Science fiction, i love fairytales retellings, so obviously i knew i was going to enjoy Cinder. And i did, i did so very much! The writing was great. The storyline is sooo fun. It’s interesting and fascinating. The world created by Meyer is brillant.
Cinder was an amazing main character. She was independent, brave, and relatable. She didn’t always make the right decision, but this is a heroine that learns from her mistakes.
Kai was also a great character. The only problem, for me, is the love story between Kai and Cinder. It’s not the main aspect of the book, so i would’ve really enjoy to see more of them together. Maybe in thr next books of the series.

Cinder : 4.5/5

I saw the movie adaptation of If I stay last friday. It was soooooo good! I’m so happy with how it turned out. Very well done. It’s beautiful and emotional. The casting is perfect. The soundtrack is magical. Seriously, i absolutely loved it! And my friend, who didn’t read the book, enjoyed it too. So i guess everybody can have a good time watching it! And they did a good job with the storyline, obvisouly they had to cut out some parts but i think they did it the right way.

if i stay : 4.5/5

Review : Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

“Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper’s destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.
Just when life can’t get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she’s charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper’s least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him—and discovers that David’s own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.
With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y’all beg for more.”

I know i’m late at the party with this one, but i’m always a bit scared to read book with a lot of hype. Rebel Belle was one of them. I felt like EVERYBODY love this book…
So i gave in and read it. It was so good!
The storyline is just so freaking fun. It’s full of action, but it’s also funny, sassy, cute and such a page turner. It’s the kind of story that make you always want more. It’s impossible to be bored with this book in your hand.
Harper is not my favorite main character of all time. At first i even hated her, but she change alot during the book and at the end she is wayyyy more likeable. Her powers are amazing! David is awesome. A cute geeky boy who has a cool power? Yes please! The chemistry between these two was perfect! And i love that Harper was the one who needed to protect David.

rebelle Belle : 4.5/5

Review : Fan Art by Sarah Tregay

“When the picture tells the story…

Senior year is almost over, and Jamie Peterson has a big problem. Not college—that’s all set. Not prom—he’ll find a date somehow. No, it’s the worst problem of all: he’s fallen for his best friend.

As much as Jamie tries to keep it under wraps, everyone seems to know where his affections lie, and the giggling girls in art class are determined to help Jamie get together with Mason. But Jamie isn’t sure if that’s what he wants—because as much as Jamie would like to come clean to Mason, what if the truth ruins everything? What if there are no more road trips, taco dinners, or movie nights? Does he dare risk a childhood friendship for romance?” (Goodreads)

Adorable. This book was freaking adorable. I don’t have much to say about Fan Art to be honest. It’s not flawless. I found the side characters pretty annoying. The teenage voices are well written and realistic with all the drama and doubts. Jamie and Manson relationship is sweet. It made me smile so much. The ending was pretty predictable but still super cute. This book was a fun read.

Fan Art : 3.5/5

Review : forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

“She is pretty and talented – sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen in love. But… they are brother and sister.
Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As defacto parents to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast. And the stress of their lives—and the way they understand each other so completely—has also also brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love. They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: a love this devastating has no happy ending.” (Goodreads)

IMG_2942.JPG
Yes. This book is about a brother and a sister falling in love with eachother. And yes. I found myself roothing for this couple. The love story is so well written. It’s uneasy but still beautiful. The relationship has time to grow. It has doubt and passion. You believe in this love. You want them to be happy.
I absolutely love the character. This family was not perfect, but i felt a strong connection with all of them. I just wanted everything to be okay.
The writing style is wonderful. Tabitha Suzuma is capable of picturing loneliness, love and sadness perfectly.

This book will make you mad and sad and smile and think. This book will haunt you with his emotional ride.

Forbidden : 4/5

Review : Angelfall by Susan Ee

“It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back. Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel. Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl. Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.” (Goodreads)

Angels. I’m usually not the biggest fan of them, but since i read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and loved it, i decided to give them more chances. So, angels. This book was so good. It has action from page 1 and it doesn’t stop until the last one. It’s also a very creepy book. I don’t want to say much, but the part with the kids was dark. The writing was great. The characters were interesting too. I pretty much liked everything about this book. I will be reading the next one in the serie, can’t wait to know what happens next.

Angelfall : 4/5

Review : Landline by Rainbow Rowell

“Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside the point.
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .
Is that what she’s supposed to do?
Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?” (Goodreads)

We all love Rainbow Rowell. Her writing style is wonderful. This one is no exception. She has a way of creating story that are so close to reality.
Landline was good. It was not as amazing as i thought it would be. The story was okay. The phone thing was pretty cool.
My biggest problem with this book, i think, is that i didn’t had a conection with any of the characters. In Rainbow Rowell’s other books, i always could relate to one of the characters. Cath, Park and Lincoln, they all have this little something that talks to me.
But not in Landline.
Plus, i didn’t really care about those characters.
So, Landline is a good book. I just don’t think it would be my first recomendation to someone who never read a Rainbow Rowell’s book.

Landline : 3.5/5
