Review : Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver

“Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara’s beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it’s too late.

In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.”
  
i have mixes feelings about this book. i enjoyed most of it. The begining was kind of long. It takes over 220 pages for things to get really interesting. Those 220pages are not completely boring, i was just not expecting it to be so slow. The second part was more interesting, but it felt too short. I was hoping of little bit more of the mystery aspect. I was not expecting the twists, so that was a fun aspect. I really like the writing style. This book had a very unique vibe, perfect for this kind of story. I’d be very interested to check out more of her books. The characters were okay. I like Nick, but didn’t care that much about Dara and the other characters. 

Overall, this book was okay. I didn’t hate it, but it wasn’t THAT amazing either.

Vanishing Girls : 4/5

Review : The Raven King (Raven cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater

“All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love’s death. She doesn’t believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.”

  
i wasn’t even sure i wanted to write a review for this book, but i talk about every books i read, so i had to find something to say. The reason why writing a short review was almost impossible is because the only thing i could thing of was : Perfect. The Raven Cycle is just perfect. The writing, the storyline and omg, those characters. I love them more than i love most people in my life. I LOVE MY RAVEN BOYS. I’m very happy with how this series ended, it was a satisfying conclusion. I’m also in love with Stiefvater’s writing style. It’s magical and it’s perfect for this story. 

i’ll miss this world so much, guys, i can’t stop thinking about it. About Gansey, about Adam, about Ronan, about Noah, about Blue. I feel like i lost my friends now that it’s over. 😦

What am i going to do with my life now?

The Raven King : 5/5

Review : The 100 – Homecoming by Kass Morgan

“Weeks after landing on Earth, the Hundred have managed to create a sense of order amidst their wild, chaotic surroundings. But their delicate balance comes crashing down with the arrival of new dropships from space.
These new arrivals are the lucky ones—back on the Colony, the oxygen is almost gone—but after making it safely to Earth, GLASS’s luck seems to be running out. CLARKE leads a rescue party to the crash site, ready to treat the wounded, but she can’t stop thinking about her parents, who may still be alive. Meanwhile, WELLS struggles to maintain his authority despite the presence of the Vice Chancellor and his armed guards, and BELLAMY must decide whether to face or flee the crimes he thought he’d left behind.
It’s time for the Hundred to come together and fight for the freedom they’ve found on Earth, or risk losing everything—and everyone—they love.”

  

Okay, lets talk about the last book in The 100 series! I think this book was very fun. It was a good conclusion, even if the ending wasn’t really special. I did find some parts of the story to be rushed, especially the whole thing with Clarke’s parents. The fight was fun to follow even if i felt it was all done very quickly. I loved seeing Glass on earth, it was interesting to see her in an other setting. I was dissapointed by the lack of Octavia in that book, i really wish we had more of her. I felt bad for Wells the entire time, i really wanted to hug him. 

I really enjoyed this series, it was fun and entertaining, but i feel like the conclusion was a bit rushed. Overall, it was a very good series.

The 100 – Homecoming : 4/5

Review : The 100 – Day 21 (the 100 #2) by Kass Morgan

“It’s been 21 days since the hundred landed on Earth. They’re the only humans to set foot on the planet in centuries…or so they thought. Facing an unknown enemy, Wells attempts to keep the group together. Clarke strikes out for Mount Weather, in search of other Colonists, while Bellamy is determined to rescue his sister, no matter the cost. And back on the ship, Glass faces an unthinkable choice between the love of her life and life itself.

In this pulse-pounding sequel to Kass Morgan’s The 100, secrets are revealed, beliefs are challenged, and relationships are tested. And the hundred will struggle to survive the only way they can — together.”

  
I found this sequel to be very fun and entertaining. The story was great, but i felt like it was an in between, like it was getting ready for something else. This feeling was the strongest during Glass storyline. The ending was great, very excited to see what will happen next! I really enjoyed the romance too. I like Bellamy and Clarke together, but i kind of feel like the “i love you” came abit too fast. Wells and Sasha were also cute, i hope we get to see more of her. I love the revelations, i was not expecting some of the twists. I still love all those characters. The writing was great too, i’m really enjoying it.

I’m loving this series!

EPIC READS TAG

Helloooooo book reading friends, how are you all doing on this beautiful Friday? In today’s blog post, i’m doing the Epic Reads tag (X) 😀

 

1. If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?

I think i’d like to take J.K. Rowling and Ron Weasley out in some kind of sweet shop where we could eat everything we wanted. How awesome would that be?

 

2. What book do you wish the author would write a prequel for?

I’d like a prequel of A Darker Shade of Magic, I think it would be great too see what the characters were up too before. Seeing more of Kell’s travels and Lila’s life. I also think a prequel for Carry On would be awesome. Since that book happens in their last year at the magic school, I would LOVE to read about their first years and how Baz and Simon were before.

 

3. Which two characters (NOT from the same book) do you think would make a good couple?

ohhhh, let me think. I would LOVE to see Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles with Jesper from Six of Crows. That would be an epic couple full of perfection. Also, their interactions would be kind of fantastic.

4. If you ran into your favorite author on the subway and only could say one sentence to them, who is it and what would it be?

omg. One sentence……. so, probably something like : Hello Miss Schwab, your books are absolutely perfect, please teach me how you do your magic…..and than i’ll give her a high five or something.

 

5. What book made you a reader and why?

Harry Potter, OBVIOUSLY. It’s the book that made me love reading, I used to hate it before…hate it…*cries in the corner of her room*

 

6. Incendio! Your bookshelf just caught on fire! Show us the one book you save.

I’ll just burn with my books……but, I guess if I had to pick ONE book, i’d have to go with Edgar Allan Poe’s stories and poems…..but my heart would be broken in 1000000 pieces.

7. Which dystopian world would you want to live in if you had to choose one? Why?

Ummmm, none, please? Dystopian worlds are awful!

 

8. What is your most epic read of all time?

Harry Potter obviously, but other than that I have to say that i’m still buzzing from reading Six Of Crows. It was so amazing, I’ll never stop talking about it! Please read this book.

That was the Epic book tag, hope you enjoyed! 😀

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Review : What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler

“Kate Weston can piece together most of the bash at John Doone’s house: shots with Stacey Stallard, Ben Cody taking her keys and getting her home early—the feeling that maybe he’s becoming more than just the guy she’s known since they were kids.
But when a picture of Stacey passed out over Deacon Mills’s shoulder appears online the next morning, Kate suspects she doesn’t have all the details. When Stacey levels charges against four of Kate’s classmates, the whole town erupts into controversy. Facts that can’t be ignored begin to surface, and every answer Kate finds leads back to the same question: Where was Ben when a terrible crime was committed?”

  
This was a very important book. More than that, it was powerful and strong. This book left me speechless. It had so many strong themes and some parts were not easy to read. I don’t usually add quotes to my short reviews, but i feel like this one really tells you the vibe of the book, it’s also an important quote, especially since it’s from a male writer : “boys will be boys is what people say to excuse guys when they do something awful”. It talks about rape, slut shaming, bullying, and social media. The main character was fantastic, i love Kate. I love how she decides to go against the rest of the group amd stand up for what she thinks is right. I did like Ben at first and i did enjoy his relationship with Kate, even if i found some part of it a bit cheesy. The writing style was good too, enjoyable. 

What We Saw is an important and you all should read it. 

What We Saw : 4.5/4
