Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.

THE WAR HAS BEGUN.
THE MONSTERS ARE WINNING.

Which will be harder to conquer: the monsters they face, or the monsters within?
Everything Victoria Schwab writes is magical. Simply magical. And this book was absolutely fantastic. Flawless. From start to end, this book was an epic ride. It’s dark, it’s heavy, it’s entertaining as hell. And that ending is just heartbreaking and kind of perfect for this story even if it hurt to admit. My favorite part is the characters. I love them all. Kate and August are incredible. Both of them in their own way. There’s so much strength and sadness in these two main characters. The villain are amazing. Sloan may be one of my new favorite bad guys. He is so evil, so interesting, and i just love him. I can’t believe this is the end of the series, i want more. Her writing is just perfect. I’m such a big fan of her style and she will always be one of my favorite writer. it’s beautiful, poetic and dark. I love it, i love her, i love everything about this story.
Our Dark Duet : 5/5
Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.
I already talked and review this book on the blog. But i just finished an other reread of it and had to let you guys know : Even after the third time, this book stays mind blowing.
I will never get bored of it. It’s like i fall in love all over again with the story, the writing and those characters.
So, if you haven’t read it. Do it. Do it now.
My first review of this perfection is here : X if you want to see me fangirl about it.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe : 5/5
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful. Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back. There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?
I think Becky Albertalli is my new queen of contemporary. Ugh, this was such a good book. The best part of it has to be our main character, Molly. She was fun to follow around. Her voice just sounded so true and human. She is incredibly relatable, very human with all her good and bad side. The side characters were are so fun too. It’s hard not to like Molly and Reid’s interaction. I found myself smiling a couple times at their jokes. the storyline was entertaining, was hooked from the start. it touches some topics we don’t see much in YA Contemporary and she did it well. Obviously, her writing was perfect full of awesome geeky references.
Oh, and Simon makes a tiny visit, that’s really all we could ask for. ❤
The Upside of Unrequited : 5/5
A nightmare, I’d told Tamlin. I was the nightmare.Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit—and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords—and hunt for allies in unexpected places.
I’m gonna keep this one short and sweet so you won’t get any spoilers. This book was phenomenal. I can’t think of any better words to describe this conclusion. When you enter a Sarah J. Maas novel, you just know it’s gonna be epic. And it was. My god, it was so good. Just a crazy, emotional ride. Everytime i started thinking that i knew how it would go, it when in a different way. The ending was perfect, i’m 100% satisfied with the way she finished this trilogy. Her writing is, as always, mind blowing. I’m such a big fan of her style. It’s addictive and beautiful. Her world building is impressive and she just knows how to give us lovable characters. This cast made the adventure even better. I loved everybody. I’m gonna miss them so much.
i can’t believe it’s the end of this trilogy, but i am super excited to see more of this world.
the last thing i’ll say is READ THIS SERIES. i swear you won’t regret it.
i’m not saying more.
A Court of Wings and Ruin : 5/5
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
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.
