Meet the bookstagrammer tag.


Hello World, it’s tag time! woot woot, haven’t done one in a little while. This one is from instagram (#meetthebookstagrammer2)  but i liked the questions enough to put it on the blog instead. 

My Instagram is @ZombiieeX if you are interested in checking out my book pictures.

1) Where would you like to live? 

In a big city. New York or London would be my top pick, but i also have a soft spot for Toronto.

2) Did you plan your instagram account to be bookstagram?

oh no xD It started with some random pictures, but i never really used it at the time. When i posted my first book picture, i had no idea what bookstagram was. I just wanted to take a picture of what i was reading, i keep doing that and now i couldn’t go a day without checking out instagram and my bookish people.

3) What is your dream job?

Writer was always the goal. Telling story is just something i love doing and i hope one day it become my job.

4) Which authors (dead or Alive) would you like to meet?

JK Rolling is the obvious answer here, i’d like to say thank you for creating such an important part of my world. I’d love to also meet Victoria Schwab and Edgar Allan Poe.

5) What is your favorite place you traveled to? 

New York all the way. Such a fun and entertaining city. Also, there’s Broadway, so i’m in love.

6) Favorite adaptation?

Soooo hard to just pick one. I’m easily pleased when it comes to book to movie adaptations. Again, the obvious answer here would be Harry potter because i LOVE the movies. But i’m gonna mention the Me Before You movie that just hits me in the feels everytime. great adaptation, perfect cast, AWESOME soundtrack.

7) Happy place/food/song?

omg. i could write a full blog post with just this question, but if i had to pick just one of each i’d say : Planetarium, chocolate and the Elephant Love Medley from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

8) If you got stuck on an island with 3 fictional characters, who would it be?

oh god, i’m not sure if i’m suppose to pick characters who’d be useful, but i’m going with people i’d love to meet : Jem from TID because BOOKBOYFRIEND, Delilah Bard from ADSOM because she’d be freaking entertaining and awesome, and i think i’ll pick Jesper from Six of Crows, but i’d accept any characters of this series. Jesper is just one of my favorite.

Review : Lord of Shadows (TDA #2) by Cassandra Clare.

A Shadowhunter’s life is bound by duty. Constrained by honor. The word of a Shadowhunter is a solemn pledge, and no vow is more sacred than the vow that binds parabatai, warrior partners—sworn to fight together, die together, but never to fall in love.
Emma Carstairs has learned that the love she shares with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, isn’t just forbidden—it could destroy them both. She knows she should run from Julian. But how can she when the Blackthorns are threatened by enemies on all sides? Their only hope is the Black Volume of the Dead, a spell book of terrible power. Everyone wants it. Only the Blackthorns can find it. Spurred on by a dark bargain with the Seelie Queen, Emma; her best friend, Cristina; and Mark and Julian Blackthorn journey into the Courts of Faerie, where glittering revels hide bloody danger and no promise can be trusted. Meanwhile, rising tension between Shadowhunters and Downworlders has produced the Cohort, an extremist group of Shadowhunters dedicated to registering Downworlders and “unsuitable” Nephilim. They’ll do anything in their power to expose Julian’s secrets and take the Los Angeles Institute for their own.
When Downworlders turn against the Clave, a new threat rises in the form of the Lord of Shadows—the Unseelie King, who sends his greatest warriors to slaughter those with Blackthorn blood and seize the Black Volume. As dangers close in, Julian devises a risky scheme that depends on the cooperation of an unpredictable enemy. But success may come with a price he and Emma cannot even imagine, one that will bring with it a reckoning of blood that could have repercussions for everyone and everything they hold dear. 

i’ve reviewed 12 books from the shadowhunter universe on the blog, so i’m guessing you guys know how much i LOVE this world. Lord of Shadow was just was good as Lady Midnight. The storyline is entertaining and just so damn interesting to follow. Cassanda Clare is a queen, her endings are always so crazy. This one was no exception. It left me wanting more, crying and with a heart broken. It was also nice to keep up with the old squad. Especially my Baby Alec and his family ❤ One of the thing i love the most so far about TDA is the relationships. The whole family is so close and lovable, you just want everybody to be okay. I love how they all have their very own personality, even if there’s so many of them. I have to talk about Kit and Ty because my god, i love them. I have no idea where exactly their relationship is going, i’m hoping future Parabatai, but i absolutely adore them together. Both of them being some of my favorite in this series. I’m so excited to see more.

As you can see, i was a big fan of Lord of Shadows, i don’t think there’s one thing i didn’t like. I’m loving this series.

Lord of Shadows: 5/5

The one with the rain.


Dear Monday,

i’d like to talk about the weather today. Is that weird? I always felt like rainy days were special. It’s not something alot of people enjoy, but i do love my rain. The sound, the smell, they wave of umbrellas in the streets, i just enjoy the whole ambience. 

I specially like it when there’s a thunderstorm. When those happen, i open my window and close the lights. I let the weather give me a show. It calms me down more than anything else. I stay up at night just to enjoy the storm. I wish we had more of those. 

That’s all for today, i’m not feeling very inspired. Next Monday should be interesting, it will be my birthday.

Yours truly,

Sarah.

Tattoo Stories – Part 1

Tattoo Stories is going to be a series of posts where I talk a little about my tattoos. I have a couple of them and i think it’s always interesting to see why people get them.

Lets start with tattoo number 1, This little guy : 


My little star was actually my first tattoo. I was only 17 years old and to be honest, at first, it didn’t mean much. I got a star because i found it cute and i just really wanted a tattoo. Now, this little one means so much to me. You see, since i was only 17, i needed a parent autorisation. My parents didn’t mind at all the tattoo, but since they were both at work, my grandfather came with me. My grandfather was one of the most curious human being i ever had in my life. So obviously, the second we walked into this dark and weird place where the people who worked there had devil horns and very graphic tattoos, my grandfather started asking questions. Everybody there was so nice and didn’t mind much all the questions, plus it made me less nervous. I will forever remember this day everytime i see this little star. 

My grandfather passed away 3 years ago and i still think of him everyday.  He was such a important part of my life, especially when i was a kid, bringing me and my brother on adventures around the city. I miss him.

So, here it is. Tattoo story number one, the star that makes me think of my curious grandfather ❤ 

Review : Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

One day Carver Briggs had it all–three best friends, a supportive family and a reputation as a talented writer at his high school, Nashville Academy for the Arts. The next day it all crashed and burned, literally, after he wrote them out of existence with an inane text sent to his friend Mars–the last words his friends ever see. Carver can”t stop blaming himself for the fatal crash and he”s not the only one. Eli”s twin sister is trying to freeze him out of school with her death-ray stare. Even worse, Mars”s father, a powerful judge, pressures the district attorney to open a criminal investigation into Carver”s actions. But Carver has some unexpected allies: Eli”s girlfriend, who is the only person to stand by him at school, and Blake”s grandmother, who asks Carver to spend a Goodbye Day with her–having him stand in as Blake for one last day doing all their favorite things so they can share memories and say a proper goodbye. 
Soon Eli and Mars”s families are asking for a Goodbye Day with Carver–but he”s unsure of their motives. Will they all be able to make peace with their losses, or will these Goodbye Days bring Carver one step closer to prison or a complete breakdown?

After reading a book like this one, i just feel so freaking grateful for being a bookworm because wow. Just wow. Sometimes, a story will hit you in the face with emotions and depth and Goodbye Days was one of those for me. What a crazy ride. This one is sad. So, so, so sad. I stopped counting the number of times i wanted to hug Carver. I can’t even start to imagine what it would be like to be in his situation. He’s so strong and so relatable. I loved him. I just want him to be okay. The story was incredibly well done. I cried. I felt for the characters, i was stuck into this story from the start. I have to say the “romance” part was meh for me. i didn’t enjoy those moments and i dislike how Carver reacted too. The ending did left me wanting more, i truly want to know how everybody is doing now. 

I have a lot of love for this story. It’s a good one, full of emotions and heartbreaks. It’s also the type of story that will make you think about many things. Friendship, family, death and life. 

Goodbye Days : 4.5/5

Sarah plays LITTLE NIGHTMARES

Played on Xbox One

It’s been a while since i had that much fun playing a game. I mean, i always love my horror games, but they are usually intense and stressful. This one had that element too, but in i think in a very different way, it was such an interesting game, Very creepy I mean, those evil characters were absolutely horrifying. I love them all. I think they all made great vilains. They were terrifying in the best way possible.  The whole game was just fantastic. The visual was really pleasing, it’s a style i just adore. The story itself is not much explained, there’s no dialogue, you kinda have to guess what’s going on with what you are seeing, that was no problem for me. I was hoping for a little more info once i got to the ending, but i didn’t. It left me wanting more, but i still like how it ended.  I loved our charater, Six, we know nothing about her (him?) and she was very fun to play. She was adorable.

I guess you guys can see i loved that game, i loved every part of it. Played it in one sitting, wanting so much more once it was over. Little Nightmares is a great game, a new favorite for me. I can only recommend it.  

LITTLE NIGHTMARES :  5/5

Dominion (The Enertia #4) by J. Kowallis: Review + playlist 

“With Reggie’s death, Nate and the others are forced to continue on in their attempt to defeat Roman with the help of The Rising—a rebellion movement thriving in the bowels of Public Two. New faces and mysterious secrets—hidden technology, lies, and darkness—from within The Rising shake the balance of their trust. When an unimaginable encounter infiltrates the rebellion, true identities are revealed and loyalties torn apart. In the end, there’s only one target that matters: Roman—and they’ll do anything to stop him from claiming dominion. “
Writing this review is harder than i expected. It’s hard because one, this series is perfect to me. I love everything about it. The story is entertaining, impossible to put it down. All i wanted to do is keep on reading. There’s so many twists and omg moments, some i never saw coming. Dominion was a hit in the face, all the feels, all the love. The ending was incredible, the end of the series is always a scary part for me because a bad one can really destroy the whole thing, but in this case, the ending was the only one i could wish for. Really satisfied with it. The writing is, as always, wonderful. I was drinking every words, every sentences, every pages. I’m a fan and i will read everything she writes. 

The second reason why writing this post is so hard is because it’s the end. I have adored this series and those characters for a couple years now and i can’t believe i have to say bye. Books can really hurt you in the best possible way.

Thanks for this incredible adventure.

Dominon : 4.5/5
