What amazes me though with the power of the internet is how people can go about their daily lives and bash authors in the process about their books because something didn't set right with them. Allegiant was one of those books that was bashed , so I made a point of not reading any reviews about it and from the first page, I was hooked and could not put it down. I did find about halfway through the novel - it got a tad slow for my liking but of course I persevered and OMG the last few chapters came and I had tears in my eyes and was like NOOOOOOOOOO - how could Veronica do that to us poor readers :) This was a tissue moment. As a reader, something I am not too keen on is the alternate POVs in chapters - one off/ one on. In Allegiant , Veronica Roth has taken a leaf out of Marie Lu's and Rachel Caine's books and written Allegiant in both Tobias aka Four and Beatrice aka Tris's POVs. In this instance though, I congratulate the author as she has done it perfectly and the story flowed beautifully. You will note thy readers, that in this review I am trying to skate past what the book was about as I do not want to spoil it for you, so I shall leave it with these parting words - if you wish to see how the series concludes, then what are you waiting for - get off your seats and grab a copy of Allegiant as readers it will be worth it as you turn that final page(less)

For me , I fell in too both categories as I have a thing for covers and the pink hair attracted me. Second of all, I have read a lot of books - more than most people and I have to say that How to Kill Yourself by C.V Hunt was the MOST WEIRDEST Book I have ever read and at the end of it I was still like Huh ??? ok what the hell just happened. Even at the end of this novel, I still really didn't have an actual clue of what had happened. The novel starts off with this chick having bad drugs and her hand going black and dying , so bad she has to have it amputated but she doesn't want to , she just wants more drugs . Then it flicks to her waking up in a hospital and her hand is gone and she meets a Vampire in a ghost like town . The chick turns out to be Death and she is in a relationship with Diavol who I think is the Devil and the way it was written I was like Ok, is this a lesbian relationship - who knows ?? Apparently whoever has the hand rules Hell and Death keeps wanting to escape as she prefers Earth. They have lots of children and even Jesus of Nazareth pops up for a short while and I was like Ok, isn't he supposed to be in Heaven not Hell ?? Then Death turns up again with a sidekick - a girl with pink hair who turns out to be suicide - she plants thoughts into Death and Diavol's children and everyone commits suicide in Hell and then it gets odd again and then it ends and the reader if you are like me is left thinking alright WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED ???? Normally, I wouldn't have written a review as this is the hardest book to write a review about but it was sooo damn weird that I had to write something and in fairness I did manage to finish the whole book. How To Kill Yourself by C.V Hunt , will be one of those books that you A) either love or hate and B) you either get it or you don't - there is no middle ground with this novel.(less)

You had been placed in the wrong family or wanted more out of life than those around you?

Follow Liberty as Oliver helps her to become the person she yearns to be. Loving Liberty will bring a bit of heartache for the readers as they watch Liberty struggle to make her family accept her new choices and at times I was so angry with Liberty's family and I have to say I hated her sister and in some parts , she reminded me of my own. I wanted to scream at her family and tell them to get their heads out of their butts and pay attention to their daughter and that HELLO , having money isn't everything and having a status is not the best thing in the world. Reading Loving Liberty though, made me smile and think how awesome it would be to have an Oliver or find the Olivers in the world like this one. (less)
