so Plague the book title speak for itself the FAYZ has been attacked by a mysterious plague that is killing all the mutant kids one by one.
the book is filled with blood,gore and graphic violence, which the whole series is known for. but this time it seems really different cause i get to see the characters in this book in a whole new light, and they are progressing in a way that shocked me.
the booked wrapped up with a plot that really keeps me going and would want me to keep on reading the entire seriea until the end. yeah....! let's go find out what will happen to the kids of FAYZ....more
what can I say? The last book of the infernal devices blew me away. a lot of things just happened in this bhurrah!!! my first book for the year 2014.
what can I say? The last book of the infernal devices blew me away. a lot of things just happened in this book. a mixture of drama,romance,magic and a lot lot more.
this book was written really well, I enjoyed every single page of it. and I really admire cassie clare's writing, on how she showed not just romantic love but also a love for your friends and family. she showed such vivid strong emotions each character held that made me emphatize with each character, the twist is just really unexpected.
this book was a great energy booster to start my year right.! another book series that ended well. I will surely miss William, James and Tessa....more
OMG! Beautiful Creatures is now a major motion picture! It even has a trailer! OH MY GOD! I am so shocked! believe it or not I am planning to watch itOMG! Beautiful Creatures is now a major motion picture! It even has a trailer! OH MY GOD! I am so shocked! believe it or not I am planning to watch it even hough I am not really crazy about the first book.
Truth be told , the first book is really such a blur for me, I decided to read my book review and I just gave it three stars and I was really clueless on what's the happenings on the first book. I just decided to read the 2nd book cause I wanna watch the movie and I just wanna know what the sequel is all about. Reading this one, I have to catch up in every thing. I have to patch up simple happenings that is mentioned in the book in able to catch up with the second book. But one thing is really evident in this book I still remember how girl-ish Ethan thought is. I still think that the book is narrated from a point of view of a girl.
as I was trying to catch up with this series, one thing I find different from the first one is that somehow the "magic" part has really improved. It has gotten really RICH AND GOTHIC I really like how the whole magical world was described very vividly... story-wise i liked it, although on some parts it gets kinda annoying cause Lena is becoming really Emo, but the shining moment of the book is the whole magical part, and I really like the Brit Librarian. YAY! I wish I get to see more of her from the next books.
as I vaguely remember the first book has this cliff hanger ending, I guess this one has a cliff hanger too. I guess the ending sums up that I will read the next book. :D...more
I am a huge fan of the Percy Jackson series. and I am so glad that this book is somehow the prequel of the series. the first page of the book is reallI am a huge fan of the Percy Jackson series. and I am so glad that this book is somehow the prequel of the series. the first page of the book is really captivating, as a mystery freak. I find it really interesting that the main hero has no idea who he is or what he is. but he knows stuff that he has no idea how he knows it... when I was reading it. I was really intrigued and every page is killing me cause i really wanna know who Jason is, what kind of demigod is he. he knows crazy hero stuff which i think is so much cooler than Percy.
Just when I was reading this i can't help but feel nostalgic all over again, cause I love the Percy Jackson and the Olympians with all my heart as I was reading this I can't help but to feel giddy all over when past characters from the Percy jackson series appeared in this book. (Annabeth,Chiron, Rachel... etc. ) Just when I thought I am over my demigod fantasies, this book just barged in to my life. and I think I'll love it even more than the Percy Jackson series. KYAAA!
Fun set of characters in this series! I think in this book Rick Riordan highlights some of the gods in mount Olympus that wasn't given much attention in the previous book series, cause it is always about Poseidon, Zues, Athena... and I would have to admit that I used to belittle the Aphrodite camp cause they have nothing special but in this book we get to meet the daughter of Aphrodite Piper, and I get to see Aphrodite cabin in a whole new light. They are more than just a pretty face. and I also love how the characters have more than just one power and abilities.
Overall: a fantastic book! everyone will surely enjoy it, especially if you are already a Riordan Fan. You'll love this series even more.

whooopeee!!! its been a while since i made a book review. I've been TERRIBLY busy lately. *chos* haha!
My first read this sembreak. and I enjoyed it. :whooopeee!!! its been a while since i made a book review. I've been TERRIBLY busy lately. *chos* haha!
My first read this sembreak. and I enjoyed it. :D
Alice in Zombieland didn't quite capture my expectation on what this book would be, i thought that it is gonna be like the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland , but the caterpillar,mad hatter and cheshire cat would be all zombies and Alice is the savior of wonderland from the zombies lurking in it. The book is nothing at all like that.
But I did get to see a hint of Shadowhunter vibe in this novel, I mean teenagers killing Zombies who are invisible to the naked eyes of mere humans?? hmmm. Smells like TMI to me. haha! but nevertheless i did enjoy the whole zombie concept, something new and refreshing I've been living my whole life thinking that if a zombie bit you, you will become a zombie yourself. well the thing is in this book, it doesn't go like that. and after the forest of hands and teeth ,i haven't quite enjoyed any Zombie books lately, and I haven't been anywhere near a book for about 3 months now, so this one just fit all my depressions and longing. kyaa..
the characters are really nice, Alice is a character that i really look up to, she is in a deep set of depression cause of what happen to her parents. and I really admire how strong she is, and she thinks that killing zombies is her main purpose in this world.I just love her character.
overall the book was an incredible read for me, the book cover is something i like also. I am definitely looking forward for the next book. i like to see more Cole and Alice moments. and also I want to see Kat and Frosty moments also. I mean, what would happen to Kat and Frosty if Frosty knew what kind of sickness Kat is carrying. i really can't wait.. :D ...more

so this would be the second book of the Revenants series, and to be totally honest I forgot some parts of the first book was, so I was a bit clueless when I was reading this , some characters I was a bit not familiar to them the only character that I remembered the most are Kate and Jules , I remembered Jules cause I was rooting him for Kate and I remember Kate cause well... she is the main character, so in other words , I forgot what the first book was all about and some parts I remember but not all of them, so I was uncertain if I should read this one, but its something about the summary that made me want to read it, even though I can be somehow confused if I read on.
Turns out when I've read this one, I recalled some of the events that occurred in the first book (THANK GOD!) and I had somehow read this one smoothly, some changes happen, like I admire Kate character progression in the book, woah! Kate giving the finger to one of the revenants was really bad ass!! woah! really caught me off guard, and I can say that she became tougher and stronger in this book than the previous one, the story line was somehow good, but in my opinion the story isn't much exciting as I thought it would be, I admire the short story of the "Immortal Love" introduced in a book, and for me, I dig more of their love story than Kate and Vincent's and well... I've guessed that who the bad guy was, I mean it's not that hard to predict that Viollette is one psycho revenant, her sugary sweetness toward Kate is not really ordinary, so I smelled something fishy about her character. hah!!! caught you there Violette. So I wasn't surprised how the whole book turn of events were.
The ending was really sad, I feel soooo Sad for Kate, poor girl. can't believe that the book ended that way. hmmm. well my guess for the next book, would be Kate looking for a remedy that happened to Vincent, or she will turn a revenant herself (is that possible)
Overall: the book was predictable but still worth reading, that's why I gave it 3 stars, I'll read the next book for sure, and I am hoping for more developed storyline... :) ...more
ugh! didn't enjoy every single moment of this book, very slow paced and full of drama! and what's more? a girl who always dreams of kissing the two guugh! didn't enjoy every single moment of this book, very slow paced and full of drama! and what's more? a girl who always dreams of kissing the two guys on her side... hmppp! not a big fan of this book. :( ...more
I am actually quite surprised with this book, I was expecting myself to not like it, I even thought that I wont be able to finish it. I even thought iI am actually quite surprised with this book, I was expecting myself to not like it, I even thought that I wont be able to finish it. I even thought i would write a review that will rant about it, but you see something about The Beautiful Dark that got me really compelled the momemnt that I read it... was it because there was two hot guys appeared out of nowhere in the book? or was it beacuse the whole concept was really different.
to be honest I can't pin point what got me to like this book. But one thing I am certain the book is very light, and I just feel like the whole book made me really comfortable while reading it. the story about stray and rebellious angels got my attention, and the way it was delivered was really flowy, ahhmm... you won't feel any hesitations or doubts on how it was narrated, I really liked the campfire story you all know I'm a real sucker for legends and myths and that campfire story was really something.
the characters are somehow like able, not a big fan of Skye I think I like Cassie and Raven than her, I mean Skye is just the kind of girl that doesn't know how to emphatize with Asher and Devin's situation, OMG! she has really got the guts to flirt with both of them, knowing beforehand on what their intentions and fates are. MEH!
I have a huge intuition that the second book will be better than this one. I just wish there will be more magic, angels and a lot more background story in the characters. So in a way I have high expectations for the second book. Hope It will be better than this one. ...more

I am not the biggest fan of the first book,Unerathly. just gave the first book a 3 star rating, cause I didn't exactly enjoyed it as much as the others, and i was not planning to read this one, besides from the fact that netgalley denied my request to read an advance copy of the book, (yeah, I was so sad that they denied my request) haha! I guess the first book didn't give me enough excitement to read this one. But since I am out of books to read I decided to go for this one.
what to say? what to say?
I say that this one is a big improvement, we all know that Clara has an unknown purpose right? I mean her purpose is not certain on what it is about, well in this book this kinda somehow answered that question, and I was really pleased on how this book was written , I mean I really feel like every sentence and words spoken by the chracters are really hmmm.. Magical? woah! i really don't know how to describe the words used in this book but it has somehow gave me this feeling that I am living in world full of magic and wonders.
I like how the secrets were unraveled in this book, OMG! it's like Cynthia Hand just gave me a poundful of chocolate and shove it right in my mouth! oh yes! that's how good this book is, and I guess I appreciate the characters in this book, lots of new and intriguing additional characters were introduced here.
as for the romance part. HELL i don't care to which boy Clara will end up with! both guys are really HOT and worth of Clara's heart! KYAAA! and besides i am not after the romance in this book, I am after the angel stuff and unraveling more mysteries on who Clara is and what is her real purpose.
OH my! reading this one is such a remarkable experience. looking forward for the next book and I know It'll be a thousand times better than this one. :D ...more

OOOKKKAAAYYYY!!! there is really not enough words on how much I really like this book, so please bear with my review. I can't really get over with the whole story of the book... *HEAVY SIGH*
this book is about a post apocalyptic world wherein angels are the ones who are destroying our world we are introduced with the main heroine Penryn and her sister page and her very unstable mother.
Of course the book's title speaks for itself that the book would be about angels, but as I first read the first page I just thought the the book would be like Hunger Games cause really, I mean the resemblance is like there. The unstable mom, the tough big sister and the vulnerable little sister, so I was like thinking that maybe the books isn't really about angels, but as I read on a whole new concept of angels were introduced to me, OKAY, so I was Taken aback that angels could like possibly destroy our world, that is like seriously never ever crossed my mind, I know angels are not really the gentle creatures that we know, some YA novels have introduced me to that concept but WOW! THEY ARE LIKE DESTROYING OUR WORLD!! OMG! I was like really shocked. BUT! my hysteria regarding the plot wasn't really a hindrance for me to like this book.
One thing I like about this book is how well it is written, I really feel like I am living in to this destroying kind of world and everything is just so dark and uncertain, another thing is the dialogues of the character. I just feel like the personality that the author feeds us with the characters really matches the dialogue that they are suppose to possess. Like how Raffe really talks like this modern kind of angel and how Penryn gives comments that is well suited to her personality. Another thing is the mash up of the concepts of this book so we have angels , we have aliens, we have dystopia and we have a slight glimpse of the apocalypse ... WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR. Everything is present in this book. and it is a shocker on how well those elements go together. Even though its kinda different that those different kinds of elements are present in this book.
I like this book so much, It just kinda took long for me to read cause I was back to school last week, so things are kinda like pretty hectic. This book is really awesome, and I am encouraging every Young Adult Lit lover out there to read it, cause this book didn't get that much attention. DO READ IT! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
I guess this is one of those books which I just really fell in love with the whole story, I can say that this book is one of those books which i didn't fangirl, but just fell in love completely with the whole book concept. :D...more
