If this series doesn't end for stupid reasons like money, or loss of inspiration, I will not read again. ever. That's almost like suicide to me. This review is full of spoilers. You have been warned.
This is the third book in the series, meaning at this point you already know everybody except maybe one or two characters that are new. This book introduces Cress. Yes, she is exactly how I want Rapunzel to be, if you know, she was lunar. She's adorable! Also being locked in spaceship makes her knowledge of anything in real life equal to zero. ESPECIALLY romance. The way she idealizes Captain Carswell Thorne (sorry if I misspelled his name--audiobook)!! I mean girl, COME ONE! He was in jail, He's full of himself, and every time Cress says he's a hero for one reason, he totally proves that he was only looking out for himself. And he cut her hair. I was totally pissed when he did that, don't ask me why.
Going back to our beloved Cinder. That girl has got guts. If it were me finally seeing Prince Kai after going through all that she went through,I would act exactly like Iko; fangirling and jumping up and down. What pissed me off is her faith in Jacin Clay, who clearly has a thing for princess, not Cinder, but Winter. Does he realize how old he is? Kinda creepy dude. Why didn't Cinder kick his booty out of the ship after realizing he is not loyal to her?
Poor Wolf though, my heart breaks for him every time they mention him, and little tear tries to slip away. And the worst part is that we, the readers, know exactly what the Lunars are doing to his beloved Scarlet. JUST HEART BREAKING !!
Do I need to talk about Levana? I think not. There's isn't a lot to say about her anyways, she's just a bitch who need to die ASAP. Married to prince Kai? OVER MY DEAD BODY !
As you can tell by how much I crazily wrote, I love this book! I definitely recommend it after of course reading Cinder and Scarlet. Seriously, what are you doing reading this review without reading the previous two books?? Well, since you have already dug your own grave, let me give you a hand. This series is lightly based on Disney princess. Cinder (might also be known as Selene) is Cinderella, and she does has a glassy shoe, well sort of, she has mechanical parts. Scarlet is of course from Red Riding Hood, and so is Wolf but here they have a relationship, instead of Wolf wanting to eat her. Cress is Rapunzel and Thorne is the one who supposedly saves her from the tower. The next book is going to be called Winter, and I'm assuming that's snow white(my least favorite Disney princess) especially since she is related to Queen Bitch Levana.
Excellent! the funniest book by John Green I've read so far. God, I love Has!! And of course Colin, but you know... Oh you don't? it's ok, I do :P

What's best about this book? Has (Hassan) is a Muslim. So, as a normal low-self-esteem Muslim girl, I immedietly put the "Wall" up. But it was not offensive in the least bit! He's hilarious, loves judge Jody, overweight, and loves to make fun of everything. What's not to love right? John Green made the perfect Muslim image. Some might get offended by what Hassan does in the middle of the story, but honestly, I don't care. We are humans too, we are made to make mistakes. In Arabic, human is called Ensan (N-SAN) and it comes from Nasayan (Na-Sa-Yan) and it means forgetting. So yeah, I'm human, I forget, basically.
So thanks you John Green for making another amazing book. I think I read all of your books now. I'm kind of obsessed with you. Sorry if it bugs you. I just love your brain too much. lol

I have to admit it that I don't understand why readers like this book so much. The beginning was so boring it put me to sleep in seconds! The middle of the book, I don't ever remember listening to because I got distracted by the littlest things. I honestly don't know I finished it. It is so scandalous ! And the worst part, it's all about MARRIAGE! Yeah, believe it or not, I run from my mother when she starts talking about it, only to end up listening to a book about it. COME ON! Still, the parts that I focused on were actually good. So I gave it three stars for effort. Never the less, I hated every single man in the book. Sorry. I must have ruined the books for many. *sigh*

Am I going to remember it after a month? Probably not. So it's almost a month, and I don't remember it. JUST KIDDING ! I still remember it, but only because I've read Breaking Dawn. That's all I'm giving this book. Not even a real review. Because I don't feel like it's worth it.

Dear John Green, Do you enjoy breaking my heart with every book you write? First with Looking for Alaska, and now with The Fault in our stars. You keeDear John Green, Do you enjoy breaking my heart with every book you write? First with Looking for Alaska, and now with The Fault in our stars. You keep killing the people that I don't expect to die. And it just happens to be that I enjoy your books so much to the point where I would read it outside of my own room. Big mistake of course, because when I need to cry, and I mostly feel that way, I cannot cry because I don't like crying in front of other people. I suppose you are giving me great practice for not crying in public. But Still! I would like a warning. Like in the back of the book, right after the description, in very tiny letters, write the following; "Angel, please do read this in your room. You will shed tears that would create rivers and seas and oceans.". Sincerely, no longer has tears to cry with.
I want to go back to where Gus was still with us. Life was much funnier. and now it's simply somewhat empty. It was cool that the book was set between Indiana (where I live) and Amsterdam. I kept recognizing places, and it turns out that I visit the same places that normal people do.
I hate death. I know that at one point or another I told my mom that I'm going to die early, like in my twenties, which might make me seem like I like the idea of death. But I don't. And also, do you know how people say that God needed another Angel when someone dies? FYI, Angels are immortal. God wouldn't need any more angels, just admit that life isn't fair and move on.
Now that you know I hate death, you must also know that I love to read books where characters die. It does not matter how, or why, or when, as long as they die. Not just in books, but also in movies, TV shows, and so on. I don't know why I love it. I guess it's because the people who do not die suffer like me, as a living person while your loved one is not a living person. Crazy? tell me about it.
I would give this book more than just five stars if goodreads would allow me. It is sarcastic, realistic, and everything you would want when you don't want to do your homework and might be failing your classes simply fascinating. I love you Mr. Green, but next time please be gentle-er on my fragile heart.
Sure it's all Egyptian fiction, and believe me when I say that I hate Egyptian Gods more than anything, but the fact that they arHilarious much? lol.
Sure it's all Egyptian fiction, and believe me when I say that I hate Egyptian Gods more than anything, but the fact that they are brothers, so less romance that ruins everything, and the girl was British speaks in a British accent. Who doesn't like a British accent? Especially from someone who's NOT faking it.
Dear Rick Riordan, I hope you are not married, because I love you so much, and it would break my heart. But if you are, and you are happy with whoever she is, or he (you never know these days) then I guess I will take company in your amazing, great books.

Stefan is dark and mysterious - and she's determined to get to know him better. But Stefan is just as determined to resist her...until a series of attacks in the area terrify the town and Stefan is held responsible. Elena is the only one who offers to help and, falling in love with her, Stefan tells her his terrible story. He is a vampire, on the run from his evil brother, Damon, who doesn't share Stefan's qualms about drinking human blood. And Damon is the one Stefan suspects of really being behind the recent attacks...Can Elena help prove his innocence - without revealing his secret?"
I don't know why, but I never thought of reading the books behind the amazing "The Vampire Diaries".I love the TV show, way too much. I'm especially obsessed with Damon. I think that the idea of reading a book which I already saw a movie for would bore me to death. You have no idea how wrong I was. I loved the book even more than the show. I couldn't imagine how that would have been possible, but now I know how.
This is the first audiobook I tried. I have to say, not a bad book for my first try. It made me more obsessed with audiobooks. Making them the best types of books I've ever tried. Now if I want to read a book, I would most definetly choose audiobooks.
I have to say that I wish I knew that Damon was there from the start. I don't have anything against Stefan. He is such a good person *cough* vampire *cough*. But Damon is what I need to live. I don't have anything to say for Elena. I didn't think that she was that type of bitch who would want anything infront of her, but as it turns out, she is. Stefan might have loved her from the start, but still, it sounded like bitch to me. And the fact that she is blonde. Add to the annoyance.
It might sound like I hate this book, but the fact that Damon was there erases every other character. And to me, Damon was everything. In every page *chapter since I was listening*.
I would recommend this book to vampire lovers, and romantics.

This book is so like every other book I read, yet it****************************************Spoiler Alert********************************************
This book is so like every other book I read, yet it is so different. At first, I got really addicted to the blue hair idea. I almost bought the dye. Second thought -and I regret it- was about how this book is very similar to the Fallen series. I was proven wrong of course, but I was in the first chapters and I did think the girl would be a human or Angel. I didn't think any other creations existed. I'm SORRY, OK?! Third thought, I love Kishmish. As ugly as that bird was described, I cried when he died. Although it was only a 30 seconds of audiobook, it truly shook me. I guess I knew that when the bird dies, everything goes super bad... Fourth thought; Brimstone is annoying the hell outta me!! sure I eventually appreciated what he did, but still, I'm kind of thankful that he's gone. If he would have explained just a little bit to our hero, Karou, we wouldn't be suffering, and he wouldn't be dead. so yeah, totally his fault!
Of course while listening (or reading really) I can't get the names of the people. So bare with me a I describe them. Snake woman=<3. I'm not gay or anything, but I just love that woman!! She's so funny, wanting to make Karou a fox tale and thinking she would be adorable in it !! lol.
Karou's bff; Ok, so the narrator had a weird accent when she said her parts, but other than that, she was OK. I say OK, because Karou's real family is gone and you as a best friend want to do a theater thing??? WTH?!
I'm not going to say anything about Akiva, other than he creeps me out sometimes. Especially with the crying. I just can't put Hot and crying in the same sentence. Oh look that! I just did! But you know what I mean. I'm not trying to be rude or anything, but it doesn't make sense in my head so I automatically dismiss the idea that he was hot to begin with. Sorry. And he is the main reason why I thought this story was going in the same direction as Fallen did. I'm not saying that I hated Fallen, all I'm saying is that I'm only reading it because I'm too deep in the story and if I don't know what happened I'm going to burst in flames. That's all
Cam I think his name was. That @#&% should just go die and rot in a whole. Her Ex-BF. I must be committing some crime here putting him in the ex-BF category because he doesn't even deserve to be in that category! Selfish bastard.
Another thought I had (and maybe thought about it too much that I had a dream about it.. lol) is how cool would be to fly. I don't know how Karou flew since the story didn't mention her having wings. So it made me think, if she could fly without wings, maybe so could I! Of course since I'm writing this review, I didn't try that insane idea.
All in all, Great book. It's one of those books that I love so much, that it makes me want to read the actual book instead of just listening to the audiobook!
Can't wait for the Sequel!! The ending was EPIC!! Now that's what I call an ending!. Bravo Laini Taylor, Bravo!...more
