I read this book cause Cassie will be played by Chloe Grace Moretz, I just happen to see the If I Stay movie and she was so good in playing Mia Hall. so yes!!! Consider me a fan...
What can I say about the book?
It was really,really,really scary! This dystopian book gave me the creeps. I was not entirely prepared for that. I was sucked into this world were the agony and pain is really vivid. The way how the world will be destroyed by aliens is scary. Earth will be destroyed in a very slowly that all of us will feel it's agony.They will see people suffer first, and then they will wipe out the entire population. they have these series of levels on how we can be wiped out, it kinda reminds me of the seven plague,and that gave me shivers. The Aliens here are not entirely described on what they look like or what is their intentions.
Cassie is the main character, for me I don't feel her. She is this kind of heroine that I wasn't much crazy for, I know the author has plans for her. She will bloom in the next book I bet.
Some part of the book confuses me, like changing of the POV of the characters. I am really not sure whose thoughts I am reading. Besides me being scared and everything. I think the story is really incomplete. I do love the way the world in this book is described. But I do wish more story development. I really have no rants and comments about the characters. They are OK. They pose these teenagers that has about right maturity in their minds. which I admire, I love all of them. I don't dislike any character in this book.
I guess I am up for the second book. I wish it will be better than this one....more
I actually don't know what to make out of this book?? I am really confused on all the setting and secrets just spilled out of thisWHAT THE SHUCK!!!!!
I actually don't know what to make out of this book?? I am really confused on all the setting and secrets just spilled out of this book.
The book started of where the first installment just ended. at first the story just flowed really fluidly everything was really smooth. It was a light read on the first couple of pages in the book. Just the same old obstacles faced by our young heroes. They are still in the dark on why they are there. and Thomas just keep on having these visions and his mind is just boggling with questions that is searching for answers.
Things got a little bit tricky when all new characters just keep on showing up,I have nothing against the new characters, it's just that I am really confused on how to categorize them. They keep on implying that they should be trusted. But they sure act like that they should not be trusted. Which just added to all the confusions that is lingering on the book, I really don't know who to trust in this book, or what the plot is all about. Some secrets are just so frustrating that made me want to know the answers immediately. None of the questions were just answered in this book, not only that, but the secrets just keeps on piling up.
I really don't know what to think and feel. James Dashner made a cliff hanger ending. a cliff hanger with more secrets in the side. He made us believe that WICKED is the enemy, now we don't know who the enemy is. I even have doubts on who Thomas and Theresa is. Not all of their memories are back so it is hard to know which side they are on. I am starting to think that we should trust just the supporting characters cause i feel like they have more pure intentions than Theresa and Thomas. if the last book will not answer all these questions I will seriously throw it and burn it. HAHA...more
Allegiant: The Final book of the Divergetn series has finally come. It's been a year since it was published and I only got a chance to read it now.
whAllegiant: The Final book of the Divergetn series has finally come. It's been a year since it was published and I only got a chance to read it now.
what do i think of the last book of the series?? Well let's just say that I should've kept my curiosity of the book at bay. I was not really a huge fan of the last book of the series. But is still manage to gave it 3 stars. The thing is, the whole book didn't pretty much left me anything to hang on to. Like I really don't know the whole shift of the book thing. experiments, new world stuff and serum thingys just doesn't seem to make the book so interesting. A muddle of thoughts are swirling in this book.
Despite the whole uncertainty of the book. It still manage to leave me crying. I know someone will make the "Sacrifice" . all along while reading it I was thinking that it will be Tobias. I mean every YA author always kills the dude. It been a tradition. but this one seems different. The chick made the sacrifice. which by the way I am pretty not much sure if the sacrifice she made was worth it? anyways it is still heart wrenching to see baby Toby suffer beacause he lost the love of his life.
Sad, confused and left me feeling incomplete. That's Allegiant not the best book i've read from the series. considering I loved the First book so much. But yeah thanks to Theo james who awakened the divergent lover inside of me and made me finish the entire book series.
"…death is better because death is the end of fear, isn’t it?
I am absolutely mortified on what I just read, I am a Gone series fan since Book 5 : Fear
"…death is better because death is the end of fear, isn’t it?
I am absolutely mortified on what I just read, I am a Gone series fan since day 1, and since we are talking about Gone Series it has this elements that makes up it's identity like let's say the gore, it's twistedness and a lot of things that absolutely will just freak every reader. But I don't know what's in this book that made those elements intensified. The book title live up to it's name. I did feel scared and nervous at the same time while reading it. My heart was pounding on every page. I think it was Penny who made the book really scary. The visions she just make just really give me the creeps. what she did to Cigar and Caine is like a work of a psycho unleashed in a mental ward. Her character is the type that gives you nightmares at night. For me she is the cherry on top of the whole book. without her, FEAR is not evident in this book.
But aside from the gore and the book's creepiness I did enjoy reading it, I cannot put it down for the reason that in each page is really captivating it has this snippets where the adults were featured, and I am really just itching what really happened to them I mean .. Hello?? why did they leave Perdido Beach ? where are they?? But somehow maybe just a little bit the mystery was unveiled. Yeah but I still need the last book to really answer all the questions lingering in Perdido Beach. and yeah. Maybe an Evil Baby featured in the book seems somehow interesting. Hahaha... and really shipping Hard ASTRID X SAM and CAINE X DAINA.
I love you. All my heart. Forever. But get the hell out of here, because I can't be watching out for you" -Sam Temple
ooohhh,.. and Sam walking out of the adults is completely bad ass he's like
i am two books away on finishing this series and i have to say this one will be my favorite...

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
I cannot really muster the words to describe on how good this book is.

I cannot really muster the words to describe on how good this book is.
to be honest I am not a huge fan of the first book, i'm not sure I really even liked the clockwork angel. may be because I tend to compare it to TMI. and I just find Jace even more attractive than Will so I really dismiss any memory of the first book.
but this book was different. the next installment of the infernal devices I can tell that this one s filled with passion and longing. OH MY GOD! It really unleashed the fangirl inside me. WOW! the kissing scene between the Tess and Jem and Tess and Will really made me explode! WHOA! it was that hot!
knowing Cassandra Clare. The Queen of all cliffhangers. well this one is no different that her other books. It has a shocking and heartbreaking ending and It leave me longing for the next book.yay!
as for MR. Herondale. don't worry baby I am on your side. you deserve Tessa Gray more than anything. YAY!

They will disappear in a POOF all of the kids 15 and below will be the one living in a whoimagine living in a world were all the adults will be gone. They will disappear in a POOF all of the kids 15 and below will be the one living in a whole new world.
I seems kind of cool right? living in a whole new place where no adults exist?! It is every child's dream cause to them living n a world with no adult is some kind of freedom right? This whole book grasp this kind of idea wherein children below 15 years of age, left to live in a whole new world where no adults exist...
I happen to just bump in this book cause Goodreads has this nifty feature where they recommend books according to your shelf. (NOOB MUCH) since i happen to love Unwind so much! This book is number one on my recommendation list.
as I was reading this book I was so amazed! It seems like all of my favorite TV shows is mashed up in this book! and it seems so surreal for me that the kids in this book are so smart and not only that they are Mutants, they posses different kind of powers and also they are disturbed kids with such unfathomable issues, some of them are psychos and lunatics and power hungry.
I highly enjoy reading this book but that only lasted on some parts, I begin to realize that as the story progress I find it kind of a blur, I mean characters are popping up everywhere, Dialogues are popping up everywhere, scenery is popping up everywhere, and I begin to realize that the book is like Animal Farm. Only instead of animals fighting over for power, Kids under the age of 15 are fighting for power, and infairness to them they know all about politics in such an early age. >:D
but come to think of it, I like how the whole book is written, since this book has such huge number of page, i find it to be an easy read, it wad written simply and not very complex and I really enjoyed it's writing style. I just find the whole book so-so. The plot of the book is not my cup of tea, I enjoyed it but didn't entirely like it. But I am planning on reading the other books in the series, since I like the characters in this book, and besides I want to know what the Darkness is and I think this book just contains a lot of mystery that I find really enticing. I wanna know all of it so bad.! so yeah, I am planning to read the next couple of books and I hope it'll be better than this one. :D...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.

this book is really twisted. just when you taught you'll get over the craziness and the goriness of the first book. YOU ARE SO DAMN WRONG! I have this impression that this book will be just about blabbering and talking about the AWOL's Rebellion against unwinding but i was so damn wrong. The first part is really really sick! especially the little snippets and the little advertisement on the unwinding. it got me really creeped out! I got this premonition that maybe 50 years from now this is the exact picture of what the world would be like.
Just when I thought I am done with the craziness with this book. It has more surprises that I never thought would come up. I was really irked when there i a modern frankenstine lingering in this book. EWWWW! I HATE CAM COMPRIX! EWWW! I know some girls like him cause he is the sensitive guy in the story. OH MY! I don't like him he is like a freaky stalker with dirty thoughts about killing cats or something, that is how i picture him everytime i read his POV.
The whole book is really AMAZING! I never thought it'll surpass the first one. More sickening things are happening here, and the whole flow of the book is well balanced there's a little bit of everything in every part. I really don't know what to expect on the next book. but I am more interested on Risa's fate. I don't know what will happen to her knowing she ran away and knowing there is a lurking frankenstine following all of her tracks. yay! can't wait for the next book. ! ...more
