OH MY JACENESSSSSSSS!!! *squeals* (forgive me for releasing the fangirl inside me ahaha! XD)
i really really have high expectations for the 2nd installmOH MY JACENESSSSSSSS!!! *squeals* (forgive me for releasing the fangirl inside me ahaha! XD)
i really really have high expectations for the 2nd installment of TMI, the first book just knock me off cause of the very high adrenaline rush that it has given me and also i get to meet the most gorgeous and sexy shadow hunter in the entire world.Jace Wayland *faints* haha! but in CoA the adrenaline rush has lowered down to 80%, oh beleive me the action is still there but in CoA we get to see a lot of Jace-Clary-Simon drama and it's really depressing.
jace and clary recently found out that they have the same mom and dad meaning that they are siblings but they also love each other more than siblings so it's tough for them cause Clary kept on denying her feelings towards Jace while Jace is willing to beat the odds to be with each other and the whole denying and suppressing their emotions is really depressing! geez! it gave me flashback of the book Forbidden. as for Simon i just feel sorry for him cause although clary was his girlfriend clary's feelings will never be real towards him. and his whole masochism is very much highlighted in this book good thing he turned in to a vampire so that he has an extra spunk in him.
lots of character progression and changes on this book too.like jace being all vulnerable,clary being extra more powerful and we get to see a lot of magnus baneXAlec????(are they really a couple? haha!)
EARLY GUESS,ASSUMPTION,THEORY ON THE NEXT BOOK
-jace is stephen's son not Valentine's cause why would the inquisitor gave her life to save Jace and why is Stephen and Celine be mentioned in this book and it is also mentioned that Celine was 8 months pregnant when she committed suicide! HA! or was it suicide? maybe valentine killed her himself!
*i actually suck at predictions rarely of them came out right but i really really have a strong feeling that i'm right on this one haha! *fingers crossed*
the last book from the percy jackson series is definitely a great read! think of all the mythical creature you can think of, it's all inwow! wow! wow!
the last book from the percy jackson series is definitely a great read! think of all the mythical creature you can think of, it's all in here! from monsters,to drakons,to titans,to the 12 Olympians everything is present. Everytime I open this book i feel like my surroundings magically transforms in to this world that the book describes I feel like I'm also slaying the monsters,I feel like I'm part of the battle but i also notice that this book is quite different cause i am used to seeing Percy as this hot-headed,short tempered and a sarcastic demigod but he transformed from that to someone strong,mature,wise and also a great leader.
another thing that I really like about this book is the shockers.the twists,the events that you didn't expect to Happen you'll just go "woah! Rachel is a what?" and "grover become a what?" and "Percy refused a what?" but the biggest shocker for me is Luke, damn! i never saw that one coming... i hated Luke since book 1 but WOW! he totally redeemed himself for all the bad things that he's done *tsk!tsk!* your the only villian who made me cry,Luke. you deserve a seat on Olympus *sniff*
and yeah! Percy Hearts Annabeth. :">
i could not think of a better way to end this book series. I like how the author pressed the subject of equality in the book, the Olympians and the minor gods should be treated the same.
*sighs* this is it! time to say goodbye to all the campers of Half Blood Hill. I'll definitely miss them all especially my Favorite Cyclops, Tyson.. LOL ^^ I'll miss you big guy!
I am a fan of the PLL series! so this is another book series from the same author, I was a bit psyched to be honest cause the title itself is just intI am a fan of the PLL series! so this is another book series from the same author, I was a bit psyched to be honest cause the title itself is just intriguing the lying game . the lying game is actually a game wherein you have to pull up a prank on someone but not just a harmless prank but a prank that can actually hurt or even kill someone.
sutton mercer has gotten way to far on the lying game and gotten herself killed so it's up to Emma, sutton's long lost twin sister to pretend like her and find out who is her murderer.
the whole book for me is quite cliche the whole twins being separated at birth the other one living in luxury and the other one has a miserable life. i didn't actually enjoy reading this book i have to skim to just like move on from what i'm reading. the whole book is like a flat line no part of it got me hyped up. the mystery of finding out who killed sutton, I'm not actually thrilled about it. I mean so what if she's dead? she is a very very bad person! making others life miserable is like breathing for her. she deserves what she's getting (i'm sorry! i really really need to get that out of my chest ^^)
but i give credit to the writing style it's like Nancy Drew with a spunk. i still prefer Pretty Little Liars than the The Lying Game....more
This book is another book from Melissa dela Cruz this time it's about Adult Fantasy. So this time she wrote a bookOriginally Posted @ The YA Bookworm
This book is another book from Melissa dela Cruz this time it's about Adult Fantasy. So this time she wrote a book about 3 witches, The Beauchamp girls who posses different kinds of powers but they are forbidden to use their magic cause the witches council thinks that their magic causes harm to humans.
so any-who! this is another book from one of my favorite authors. i love the blue bloods series and i was also expecting this one to be as intriguing as the blue bloods series, and i just have a glimpse of Freya in Bloody Valentine, and she is such a nice girl..err witch to cure Ollie's broken heart.
this book is actually an adult book so it contains some graphic scenes and well this contains a lot of twist, cause Melissa dela Cruz combined Norse Mythology plus Witches in this book, the first couple of pages is filled with mystery and a lot of blabbering but the ending made the book so much better, Freya's love triangle is such a nice twist. i find myself so confuse on which brother should i root for, another thing i think i see in this book is it contains women empowerment, Ingrid,Freya and Joanna are such strong girls that posses different kinds of personalities, that i think everyone can relate to i think the beauchamp girls showed that event though your timid and shy (Ingrid) wild and snarky (freya) and a mother (Joanna) you can still be have some spunk and can stand on your own feet.
overall this is one good read, and i know that there are more twist on the upcoming books of the series, the mythology is really nice touch. and if you are a blue bloods fan, you should read this!!! OMG!!! Mimi made a small appearance on this book, and guess what? she is asking for a subvertio ritual!! hmmm... *won't spill the details* haha!!! GRAB the BOOK and read it!!! ...more

so okay. we all know about the story of sleeping beauty right? the princess who accidentally pricked her finger on a spinning wheel and suffred an eternity of sleep we all grew up thinking that she was kissed by a prince and lived happily ever after!! *weeee* well here is another version of the story but this time she wasn't awakened by a kiss but she was raped. and she didn't live as a princess but she lived as a love slave.. *sheesh*
this is my first erotica book.call me conservative,call me stupid,call me dumb, call me foolish.. but i didn't know that such book genre exist, i don't know how will i appreciate this book, i don't even know how people appreciate this kind book, i mean the first scene of this book is a rape scene! Beauty was in her clothes and Prince come and rescue her so instead of kissing her he took her clothes of and mind you, he didn't use his hand to get her clothes off. he ripped it off using his sword (talk about diabolical!) my reaction to that is like *HOLY SMOKES! OMG! WTH! WTF! (closes e-book)* so that was my first attempt to read this book, so i read it again and this time i skimmed some parts enable for me to move on... and i have done a lot of skimming and scanning enable for me to finish the book.
the prince in the book is always described as being handsome and regal but he is a monster,ok. he is a sadist he made beauty do a lot of awful things like
*making her walk naked *showcase beauty to commoners naked and her hands are tied *making beauty kiss/lick his shoes *spanking,spanking and oh yeah some more spanking *making her eat the spilled food on the floor *tying her on a bed *letting beauty strip his clothes using beauty's mouth
those are just SOME of the things that the prince made her do, if i enumerate them all i may be banned from goodreads forever! XD
as i'm reading i can't help but ask why? why is the prince so sadistic? it turns out that their kingdom. sex slavery is normal they abduct,kidnnaped commoners or even royals to become their sex slaves or love slaves as they call it.
as for beauty i can't help but to feel sorry for her. she is a princess for crying out loud! but she get to experience a lot of awful things that the prince has coerced her to do and by that she find herself wanting those things she became hmmmm how do i say this. she became H****. she finds herself wanting to have sex, she became conscious of her actions and trying her best to pleasure the prince.
so why 2 stars? it seems like i'm so horrified and traumatized when i read this book but i gave credit to the writing style, the words are carefully chosen and in my opinion i find it hard to write something that tackles with this kind of subject. but regarding to the plot i don't appreciate it. let's just say i'll stick with the idea that beauty was kissed and awkened and she lived happily ever after with her prince.
you see this book's cover? you see how the boy is just inches apart from the girl like he is about to kiss her?? well let me tell you this! ha! don't let it fool you! this book is not about romance it's about LUST.MURDER.MYSTERY.LIES.RUNNING.FREEZING.AND A WHOLE LOT OF STARS. haha! :)
Amy- erm... Amy? what to say about Amy? Amy is actually a very neutral character in this book, you neither lover her nor hate her, she is not actually the type of heroine the you will love or get annoyed, i mean she is very neutral! i guess she is what you call an "in between" . i can describe her as being very inquisitive,smart and she loves her parents so much. so yeah i don't feel any character attachment to Amy.
Elder- yes, that's his real name! :). when i first met elder there is one word to describe him a pervert! ha! he actually likes looking at Amy naked on the frozen glass chamber plus having some perverted thoughts, he is very attracted to Amy cause she is different, cause you see in the godspeed (the spaceship) they are all mono ethnic meaning that they all look alike, so seeing Amy being all different with sunset hair and fair skin he is really fascinated with her.well his fascination led to something... hmmm.. let's just say that his fascination with Amy made him do something impulsive. *wink*
so elder is actually the future leader of the ship,he is thought by his mentor Eldest. at first i thought his a pervert but he is actually nice if you read on, i like the fact that he is not a "power hungry" type of leader like eldest
this my friends is the Godspeed! the whole book evolve around this spaceship, but even though the author made the setting of the story only in this spaceship, the author described it in the way, that you will not think that the characters are only moving on a limited place. i find this spaceship really cool, actually everything is described here being all so futuristic.
the plot of the book is actually about Amy being frozen with her parents in Godspeed ,they are expected to be awakened when they landed a whole new type of earth, so basically they should be awakened 300 years after, but Amy on the other hand was awakened 50 years earlier. and not only that but a lot of people is being murdered on their glass chamber, and its up to Amy and Elder to uncover who is the real murderer and uncover the lies on the ship.
the book is actually a page turner cause i am really anxious to know who is the murderer.
in a way the book is kinda weird cause of all the people in the spaceship being all impassive and being all zombie-like because of the drugs being spiked in their water. the "season" is another intriguing thing in this book, it actually means that it is the time of the month were people in the ship are about to mate like animals, they can all do it publicly like what animals does. >:) haha.
overall this book is actually nice, if you like mysteries and murder with a little hint of sci-fi on the side you get to actually like the book... my only criticism is that i don't feel any character attachment and the ending is kinda confusing, you really don't know who to trust in the end. :) ...more
this is my 3rd angel book! but the first one i miraculously manage to finish! I mean i've read Hush,hush but i did not finish reading it cause Nora Grthis is my 3rd angel book! but the first one i miraculously manage to finish! I mean i've read Hush,hush but i did not finish reading it cause Nora Gray is getting on my nerves and I've read Fallen but I managed to read only the first chapter (not exaggerating) seriously, those two angel books are very hmmmm.. disappointing, i mean i love angels,(i was even named after one) lols. they are very fascinating creatures they are heavenly,beautiful,gentle. so i'm glad that Unearthly is not the same as the 2 other angel books that i've read.
Unearthly is about clara gardner she is part-angel. a quartarius to be exact, meaning she only has 1/4 angel blood, well each angel has a purpose like a person to save, so her mission is to locate who is she bound to save,where he/she is and when will her purpose will happen...
so basically unearthly's main concept is guardian angels i mean the author open the whole concept of angels having this mission on earth they have to do a certain job enable to? hmmm.. i actually don't know why they have this so called purpose, is it because they are the descendants of God? so the book didn't exactly provide a thorough info about that, this book has actually lots and lots of question and mystery left unsolved it left me confuse especially the last part everything is left hanging ,but what i appreciate about this book is the way angels describe like having this so called glory and the whole white wing and black wing concept and the way the angels are described are pretty realistic it left me thinking that maybe angels do exist cause of how the author described the lifestyles of the angels that they can be casually living among us.
i gave this book 3 stars because well my emotions while reading this is like an undisturbed, calm ocean i was in neutral mode when i'm reading this and well i kinda predicted some things that will happen in the book (bragging much? XD) *spoilers* i predicted that clara will save Tucker not Christian and i predicted that christian is an angel. well OK,OK i predicted that he is a black wing but that's close right? haha! well i'm not saying that this book is bad it is a thousand times better than hush,hush and fallen but yeah i'm not really drawn to the whole story.... ^^ ...more
i have seen a lot of reviews that this one is very twilight-ish, i didn't believe it cause does the title DeadlyOriginally posted @ The YA Bookworm
i have seen a lot of reviews that this one is very twilight-ish, i didn't believe it cause does the title Deadly Little Secret sound twilight in the making to you??? i don't think so.
but then this is the first scene of the book
the very famous car saving scene in twilight, so i was still in denial that this one is twilight in the making kind of book. but then the resemblance are piling up like:
camelia and ben became LAB PARTNERS. and Ben has this "cold" touch
another one is
the confession in the forest. on what is Ben's Deadly Little secret. *sighs*
so let's cut to the chase this is somehow resembles twilight and to be honest i didn't enjoy reading this book sure there are mysteries on the side, but i find the mystery part predictable, and i don't like the dialogues in this book, maybe may E-book copy is just messed up. but people talk here like kids. (awww. i'm sooo sorry) well maybe the only redeeming thing here is the concept of "psychometry" I find it interesting i didn't know that Rogue's power (from X men) is called Psychometry. *sighs* i'm not up for the second book.. have seen bad reviews of it also, :(...more

+mia's love and compassion for music.
+ my fave scene is when mia and adam play each others' body it's kinda weird but hmmmm i think it's really romantic and intimate. _______________________________________________________________________ plot:
-so this book is about mia seeing her body to be in a total wreck after she survived in a car accident, and seeing her loved ones wait for her condition in the hospital. so basically the whole book is about mia narrating her happy moments with her family,her relationship with Adam and her bestfriend Kim so it's like she is reminiscing some moments that she had with all the people around her and also finding out the reason to stay.
i posted this picture cause i really like Adam's way of making Mia's hand warm and this the last scene in the book wherein Adam is crying and he held Mia's hand and Mia Squeezed back his hand....more
i would just like to say that wither's front cover is very beautiful!! that girl from the cover is like a contestant from America's next top model LOLi would just like to say that wither's front cover is very beautiful!! that girl from the cover is like a contestant from America's next top model LOL.
wither is about Rhine she's been kidnapped and forced to marry. although she lives in luxury together with her two sister wives,she wants to escape enable to find her twin.
so we have a new heroine of YA dystopia, Rhine Ellery. rhine is pretty much the combination of Katniss and Cassia, she has fearless ideas,thoughts and actions but somehow she is vulnerable when she sympathize with her two sister wives,the way she mourns over Jenna and Rose and the way she consoles linden... but what makes her really special is her hetero chromatic eyes,meaning she has 2 different eye color.
this is my 4th Dystopian book that I've read and this would have to be the kind of futuristic world that I'm afraid to live in cause (1) men dies @ the age of 25 while women dies at the age of 20 and dying is not as simple as closing your eyes but you have to experience some painful kind of sickness like coughing with blood,blisters on skin,wilting of hair and so on (2) prostitution and polygamy is legal since people in their society die at a very young age polygamy is advisable enable to impregnate as many women as they can and prostitution is somehow mandatory,girls are kidnapped and their physical appearance are checked see if they are ample enough well if they are not capable enough they get killed.(3) people are sold through auctions.
but the way the author described places,things on the book is not really impressive sure holograms is there,pretty dresses,sparkling bubble bath but since we are talking of futuristic stuff here i'm expecting cooler things. I feel like the things that she described from the book is not enough to fill in the dystopian genre .
so why 4 stars then?
well I enjoy reading this book besides from being different due to the polygamy thing but this kind of dystopia,somehow doesn't show that much rebellion to their society cause their society is not that controlling but the main mission for our heroine is to find the magical cure that will prolong the lifespan of all the men and women in their society.
and as for the sister wives thing. i kinda like it cause how ironic it may seem that Cecily,Jenna and Rhine should hate each other they actually form a camaraderie and well i find it cute cause they treat each other like sisters and get to console each other.
I am anxious to meet rhine's twin brother,Rowan i think he is the only man there that is crush-worthy and the only one that has a backbone like he can stand up for himself unlike Gabriel and Linden.
a YA book is not complete without romance right? so yeah we have a love triangle in this book (surprising right? *sarcastic* ^^) Linden and Gabriel competing for Rhine's love,well i'll actually pick Linden instead of Gabriel but it won't be that exciting to read if love complications doesn't exist, so I'm kinda excited to know how will Gabriel and Rhine love will turn out since they have just escaped from the mansion.
since I'm a book title conscious person meaning i should know why this book's title is like that. so i get the idea of why is the book called wither at first i have no idea why it's called wither. well i kinda get it that it means people slowly deteriorating due to the virus that affect them at the end of their lifespan, and maybe another meaning of wither is the world slowly loosing it's natural beauty cause the word "synthetic" is very evident in this book.
My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.
Mockingjay! Mockingjay! I guess I’m the only person living on earth who hasn’t read
My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.
Mockingjay! Mockingjay! I guess I’m the only person living on earth who hasn’t read this book yet, but you see this book was out in hard bound and I don’t buy hard bound books, but I luckily spotted a paperback edition of this book at NBS , so I guess I am one lucky gal to spot the last copy of this book in paperback*smug smile*
The first thing I spotted about mockingjay is it’s very low average rating (4.04) and I was incredulous! I can’t believe that this book has a low average rating I mean, come on! This is hunger games we are talking about, HUNGER GAMES! It’s average rating is almost as same as Hush,hush and angelfire and I didn’t even finish reading those books! I even regretted reading those two books. BLAH! So I was ballistic and my OCD just kicked in to its highest level. :D
Well, well after reading MJ do I think it deserved a low average rating? Well I guess. because you see MJ is not like THG and CF. cause THG has heart pounding adrenaline kicking in to it, while CF on the other hand has a mind boggling twist and cliff hanger, but MJ? MJ is kind of depressing cause in this book it actually talks about the actual rebellion, the aftershock, the WAR, the rebels and Katniss being the mockingjay and a LOT of people really died in this book, my fingers are not enough to count them all and the dying and murders just happens soooo fast one blink and BAM! He is dead another blink and BAM! She’s dead.
But those are just the couple of pages the next pages will caught you of guard! Damn! Especially part 2 and part 3, sheesh! All the blood and gore is in there all the twist and “unexpected”. And as for the peeta fans out there, our boy with bread is not the same as we saw him in the previous books, he is not actually the smiling and sweet Peeta we used to know. Hmmm. I won’t tell you why cause that will be like a huge spoiler that I will reveal. Haha!
I gave this book 5 stars because maybe I am not expecting this kind of ending, and MJ may not be as great as THG and CF but this one has a certain depth in to it, like how katniss cope up with all the things that happened in her life and the economic, political and ethical state of panem the turmoil that each and everyone has gone through. And I like it how peeta and katniss get to have kids. The epilogue is a really nice touch to be honest. :)
Well, I am really gonna miss the girl on fire I’m actually happy that I get to meet katniss everdeen , maybe in the near future I wanna be like her (I’m already 18 but WTH right? A girl can dream) I’m not wishing to be a face of rebellion but I wish I can be like her you know? Being fierce and tough hard-headed yet knowing her limitations. Katniss Everdeen is a legend and she will be forever marked in my mind, and I love Suzzane Collins for making a great YA heroine. So yeah girl on fire I’m gonna miss you and may the odds be ever in your favor. :’) *sniff,sniff*
"you see that? fire is catching! and if we burn, you burn with us"
***i'll never ever forget this line! sheesh! this line gave me goosebumps!
anyways this actually gonna be a movie, and i know i'm not the only one ranting about Josh Hutcherson playing Peeta i think he is more suitable to play Gale.... (who agrees with me?)
i know some people will disagree but when i first saw chord overstreet on glee i was like "OMG! it's Peeta Mellark in the flesh!" haha! so i'm looking forward to the movie even though i'm not a big fan of the picked cast, but we'll see. ;) ...more
this is one heart aching book, so this is actually the continuation ofIf I Stay the novel which is written from Mia's point of view, but in where shethis is one heart aching book, so this is actually the continuation ofIf I Stay the novel which is written from Mia's point of view, but in where she went, it is told from adam's perspective and like if i stay Adam is reminiscing about his times with Mia and his times without her, the time he transformed to being a man from being a guy, the time his band made it big in the music industry. this book is narrated very well cause Adam is just so... so... RAW, his emotions,thoughts,actions,everything about him is raw it's like you can see right through him and i'll give credit to Gayle Forman for writing this book with such excellence cause i think it's really hard to write a book from a guy's perspective without being gay-ish when it comes to emotions. so KUDOS!!!
as for mia, the first couple of pages i really don't get her she left Adam without saying anything and out of the blue she'll come and say "hey! wanna hang out with me tonight?", and i am actually kinda mad at her but when she told Adam the real reason of why she left him. it was like a huge slap on the cheek . at first Adam is kinda mad at her but you really can't blame mia she has to live a life where her loved ones doesn't exist anymore, she has to get up knowing that she is the only survivor of the car crash.that part is like the most emotional part throughout the entire book. a huge wave of emotions will come crashing through you.
I'm glad it's a happy ending. Mia and Adam are finally together! whopeeee!! :D i heard this is going to be a movie??? so i'm kinda thrilled to know who will play Adam. LOL XD ...more
i haven't given much thought on what this book is about, i didn't actually read the synopsis, my eyes just caught Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2011 inscription in it so i decided to give this a try, another plus factor is the cover, it actually gave me the impression that this book is about werewolves since the cover has this dark and foggy atmosphere around it. It turns out that this book is about some cheesy romance and time traveling(note to self: don't be a book synopsis snob)
if ever i have to pick a superpower i would never pick up the ability to time travel, i just believed in this so called butterfly effect wherein a small change of an event can cause either creation or destruction i just feel like people shouldn't defy the occurrence of the events that is happening in their lives. so maybe my lack of appreciation about time traveling made me gave this book a 2 star rating. I'm not saying that the book was entirely bad the first couple of pages was actually enticing, the next pages was so-so. and then it got boring, i just don't get the essence of Michele's time traveling, sure she met the boy who's haunting her in her dreams and she get to meet her relatives, get to know about her family history but i don't know what good her time traveling has lead to. it just opened up some more questions.
i guess people will appreciate this book if like the movie Kate And Leopold and if you want a cheesier version of Fushigi yuugi....more

goodness! this is the best of the TMI series! i'm glad my prediction is right! so jace is really stephen's son! haha! that sibling mix-up thing is really crazy. i didn't know that Valentine is that twisted! sheesh!
oh well i'm just glad that jace and clary can be together now. hahaha! Jace kinda actually lose some of his humor in this book and i miss it, i like it when his lines crack me up but this time Simon was the one cracking me up which is unusual, love is also in the air in this book! we get to see MAGNUS X ALEC, IZZY X SIMON X MAIA, JACE X CLARY, JOCELYN X LUKE .
so i don't know what to expect from the next book, cause this one seems so finished it's like i'm not waiting for anything more, i just hope that jace and clary won't lose that magic, cause once love is not forbidden anymore it kinda sometimes looses it's ZING EFFECT ya know what i mean? >;)
woah!!!!! i know this book is badass but i never thought that it would be this badass!!! wow!
this book actually reminds me of the movie Dawn of the dead and I am legend. I'm not much of a zombie fan cause they are kinda freaky and messy but rethis book actually reminds me of the movie Dawn of the dead and I am legend. I'm not much of a zombie fan cause they are kinda freaky and messy but reading this book changed my perspective about them... who knew they could be cool.. haha! LOL
i really like how this book is written the plot itself is scary but when you combined it with carrie ryan's writing style you'll just go... wow! i feel like everytime i'm reading this. i feel like i'm being transported to a classic horror film. the words just send goosebumps on my skin! sheesh! i can't quite explain it but that's how i felt when i read this book.
I'm not much of a Mary Fan, her character is really selfish her desire to know if there is life outside the forest lead them all to death. she is just so obsess with this ocean thing! she is just so hard headed, god Mary! what part of "zombies-took-over-the-world-" don't you understand?
i love the part when Jed and Mary kick all the zombies' butt!! haha *evil laugh* imagining that scene with blood all over the place, and their scythe cutting through zombie flesh! ha! i imagine their bones leaving a loud CRAAAACCCCKKKKKK!!!! hahaha! that scene is just kick-ass!
I'm just wondering why this book received a low average rating?. this book is really awesome! i enjoyed reading it from start to finish! ^^
will make full review soon!!!!! :) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
it's kinda bizzare that this book has a low average rating. well maybe i just didn't thought that i would enjoy reading a zombie-related book that's why i gave it 5 stars, but IDK, i think this book deserves a better average rating. :)
i was actually so happy when Ms. Kagawa will make a novella that is told from Puck's POV! I am a solid Team Puck even though Ash is so charming and loi was actually so happy when Ms. Kagawa will make a novella that is told from Puck's POV! I am a solid Team Puck even though Ash is so charming and lovable and sensitive in The Iron Queen i never ever switched to his side.
so what to expect from Puck? of course we all get the perception that Puck is this Happy go lucky guy who always pulls up some pranks and tricks and always defies King Oberon's rules BUT did you ever see the heart broken side of Puck? kinda hard to believe but yes, in this novella we actually get to see the tormented side of Puck, *sniffs* cause Meghan chose Prince Ash instead of him, and i feel so tormented myself seeing MY jester (possessive much? haha!) so wound up.. aww.. (don't worry Puck!I'm here! we can pull pranks together)
nevertheless i enjoyed reading this novella for a second i actually thought that i will hate Puck (view spoiler)[for acting like he betrayed Ash. (hide spoiler)] after reading this i even loved Puck even more cause of his witty ideas and pranks they actually get to accomplish Lea's Mission. a big huge thanks to Ms.Julie Kagawafor making this novella and giving Puck the spotlight! :)
Hah! that's MY Puck! witty and smart! <3

BEAUTY + MADNESS= UNWIND
Connor,Risa and Lev are normal teenagers but what made them different from other teenagers is that they are branded to be unwind, but what is an unwind? if you look it up in a dictionary unwind is the thing you do when you wanna loosen up, the things you do when you wanna relax or enjoy BUT unwind has a different meaning in this book, a very horrifying meaning...
in the near future in America Unwinding is harvesting organs of teenagers for transplant use, they are sent in a Harvest camp where they are evaluated and kept, and at some point on their stay they are sent to "chop shop" a place where the doctors/nurses/medical team harvest the various organs of the unwinds.
so here's the thing Connor, the main protagonist of the story is determined to escape his fate of being an unwound along his way he met Risa a former StaHo which is great in playing the piano but was scheduled to be unwound to cut the expenses of the orphanage that she's staying cause the orphanage believed that during her stay she met her full potential and he also met Lev, a tithe , which means he is designated to be an unwound as a religious sacrifice. being an unwound doesn't exactly mean that you have to die cause various parts of your organs given to different kinds of people but only a certain part of your body is living through them.
this book is very disturbing, you'll find yourself flinching,twitching,grimacing,wincing in some parts, just the thought of teenagers being sent on a harvest camp and to think that their parents has consent on their unwinding is sick! although this book is disturbing it's being disturbing at it's finest! God this book is genius! the story itself is very original, it's like beauty and madness combined together, at some parts i got to stop but once is stopped i feel like i am longing for the story. i feel like the book is haunting me. LOLZ. this book also introduce me to the terms such as "clappers"and "storking" but what actually got my attention are the clappers they are the term given for like suicide bombers they have some kind of chemical in their blood that will make them explode.
this book isn't entirely about the 3 teens escaping their fate there are side stories like the Humphery Dunfee story which sent shivers through my spine while reading it and of course another disturbing story is the story of CyFi which is like being possessed cause of getting a temporal lobe from an unwound.
i guess a 5 star rating is very much underrated, I'll give this book a millions or even a billion of stars if i have to.! >:) i highly recommend this to dytopia book lovers ...more

woooh! just finished reading CoFA! the wildly anticipated book of 2011. *inhales* *exhales*
i was really scared to read this book, cause i love this series, probably one of the best series i've read so far and i have seen a lot of bad reviews about this book and i'm the kind of reader that stops reading a certain book if i didn't like the previous one. so any-who i still manage to give it four stars. but i still don't know if i gave the proper rating. sheesh! this book is really hard to rate and judge! so anyway let's proceed to my review.
my first time to criticize a book cover. yay! so here's the thing i really don't know why Clary is in the book cover. i mean come on?! what did Clary do in this book ahm hmmm let's see... straddle her legs in jace's hips, kiss Jace's lips, grope Jace's muscle and a lot of groping,kissing,groping... haha! ok. i'm not an anti clary but i really don't get the idea of her being in the cover. i guess it will be OK if simon is in the cover, cause simon is really kick ass in this book he is the only reason that the story is stirring.
in my review in City Of Glass, i stated there that i wish that Jace and Clary won't lost their spark, cause you see when love is not forbidden anymore it kinda losses it's magic. well DANG! i think they lost it's spark! *grunts* well their love is still kinda somehow still forbidden but sheesh! when jace is pulling away from Clary and those "i-don't-wanna-lose-you-and-i-can't-stay-with-you-cause-i-might-hurt-you" crap is so...so...so... EDWARD CULLEN-ish! and the last thing i wanna do is to compare Jace to Edward! ay-yay-yay.!
on the plus side! -i adore SImon! i super love SIMON! i worship SIMON! awww! simon is soooooooo hot in this book! haha! i think i'm gonna be team simon now *weep* -i like how ms.Clare introduce me to Camille and Lilith. they are pretty interesting characters. :) -i love the Rain-Alley scene! yay! too bad izzy showed up.. :(
so did this book disappoint me?
well i'm 30% disappointed 70% satisfied. but it would be a really,really wise choice if Cassandra Clare just ended the book in City of Glass.
i was actually thinking of giving this book a 3 star rating but the ending is really good! and i guess i so-so kinda like the groping and kissing scene of jace and Clary. so i am not kinda actually excited for the next book, i mean i guess i can wait for it, i guess i won't go insanely crazy when the book is out. haha! i am more looking forward to Simon and Izzy relationship.
(view spoiler)[so here is actually the reason why i'm not excited for the next book:
* i hate seeing Jace being all tormented again! huhu. i hate it when he will torture himself again, and i hate it when those pianist hands of his will kill all the people he loves oww! and i know sebastian will do anything EVIL... gosh! i really can't bear the thought of Jace hurting Clary or anyone... ahhhh! i better fancy Simon instead so that it will be easy for me to accept the story line of the next book. haha~ XD. (hide spoiler)]
========= BY THE ANGELS! WHY DID THE BOOK END LIKE THAT???
Will make review soon!
i posted this picture cause this is what the ending is like! hmmm.. maybe professor quirell is not as HOT as Jace but basically this is the scenario. LOL haha! XD["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more

i kindis it just me or the girl from the cover kinda looks like Hayley Williams of Paramore????
they kinda look alike don't you think? LOL
i kinda feel bad for giving this book a 1 star rating cause i've been really expecting myself to like this book, and i think i am one of the very few people who gave this book a 1 star rating but before you hate me or throw something hard on my face hear me out first. haha!
here's the reason why i gave this book 1 star.
- i've been seeing a lot of reviews that this book is action packed and filled with adrenaline, but here's the thing i find the action scenes in this book pretty repetitive it's like this
scene 1: ellie is slaying a reaper with Will scene 2: ellie is slaying Ragnuk scene 3: ellie and Will fighting a random reaper.
you see???? the action scenes just contains slaying and slaying and a lot more slaying of reapers!!! so is the book is action packed i have to admit that, but the imagination of the author didn't go any broader than slaying some reapers. so i guess this book is action packed yet it's boring.
- this book is about Ellie, so this book is written in a 1st person POV. ellie is a normal teenager until she found out that she is an reincarnated "reaper slayer" but don't let the normal-teenager-i-don't-care about-boys-crap fool you, i find ellie really flirty! she likes parties, wears a sexy nurse costume on halloween, always fantasizing about Will, fantasizing about Will kissing her, thinking Will is sexy and always giving a sly smile, not only that she has this very random questions and i think she is a spoiled brat, and she is just plain annoying! she is the main reason i didn't finish the book.!
-i don't like how the book is written, a lot of bad dialogues and shallow questions and shallow answers! blah!
-the almost half of the book is all about ellie and Will's unrequited love!
on the plus side i like the gothic-ish history related on this book like Sammael,lucifer,the fallen , angels and summerian thingy... the whole concept of the angels in this book is good it;s kinda Blue Bloodslike.
so i guess i'm not looking forward for the next two books, i had enough of ellie! and i didn't finish reading this one... i don't know what's wrong with me i've been giving a low rating on YA paranormal romance these days. ha!...more

book review originally posted @ the YA bookworm yay! can't believe i have a Blog, haha! a major thanks to Google for tutoring me on HTML codes, LOL. ok,ok enough about me being a noob in blogging and HTML. :>
i decided to read this book cause this book is always featured in listopia (a feature on goodreads) it says that if you like Hunger Games you will like this book as well, since i just finished reading Mockingjay and I'm kinda looking for a YA dystopia kind of book that is as good as The hunger Games so i gave this one a shot.
This book is about in a society where everyone is classified as being Pretty and Being Ugly.the Pretties lives in New Pretty town while the Uglies lives in Uglyville, but as you turned 16, everyone is required to go through a transformation of being Pretty, So our Gal, Tally is anxious to be pretty cause she is excited to be with her bestfriend Peris who just recently undergone the transformation of being a Pretty, but Tally can't become one of the Pretties unless she'll help Dr.Cable to find her runaway friend, Shay. if she refuse to cooperate she will stay as an Ugly FOREVER!
so first thing first, this book is nothing like the Huger Games. i guess the concept of the way the people in the society lives is pretty cool, can you imagine living in a life where you are subjected to be pretty?no one will tease you and make fun of you, but in the back of my mind i find it morbid to defy to change the way we look. i just finished reading the book and up until now i don't get the essence or the author's point on why in this book they have to make everyone pretty. if people in this book just want to control the minds of people in their society, why can't they just do that? why do they have to make them pretty too???
as for the characters, Tally at first i find her annoying cause she is soooo darn desperate to be a Pretty, but as you read on i can't actually blame her for wanting to be pretty cause all her life, her 16 years of existence she is branded as an Ugly and the way they used the term Ugly in this book is like you are an outcast to the society, the term UGLY is being referred as of today being called POOR, while being pretty on the other hand is like being called RICH. I actually like Shay more than Tally. cause Shay is like the kind of girl that is so Katniss-like, i actually thought she is the main character of the book cause she is the one determined to defy the society's law of being pretty, and i like the fact that she likes the way she looks.
i guess the moral of the book is Beauty is skin deep. that's the Moral i got form david and tally's relationship. but i dont feel any spark between them their relationship has no magic effect on me.
i gave this book 2 stars cause it is a tolerable book, some parts are boring and i guess there is no point of the book where i was excited to read it. the ending didn't even make me excited for the next book. so i guess i recommend this book if you just wanted something to read, or you just want to kill the boredom that you are experiencing. ...more

i really have to keep in mind that adult angel books are way,way,way,way better than YA angel books.! yay! this book really lived up with my expectation on what an adult fantasy novel is like this book is VERY dark,filled with lust,passion,intense emotions and hardcore action scenes.
what really got my attention is the concept of the book, i have read a lot of vampire novels and it is always stated in those novels that to make a vampire (a fledgling) one has to die first and be fed by vampire blood or get bitten by a vampire and so on, but in this book angels make vampires, and that's something new to me who would have thought that angels who are so fine and gentle are responsible for making vampires... angels here are somehow evil,erotic, and possessive in this book not sarcastic and fun loving in YA novels that i used to read.
Since this is an adult fantasy novel expect a bit of vulgar words,profanity and a bit of sex (a bit is kinda understated :P),blood and gore as I've said angels here are different, they posses mind control that made girls want to sleep with them. so the first couple of pages in this book is how Raphael (the archangel of NY) try to mind control Elena of pursuing her on having some kind of erotic pleasure, i was actually confused with their relationship cause they copulate not because of love but because they treat each other as play things or a toy and Raphael is just so darn hard to read i really don't know if he is just possessive with Elena cause she is his "toy" or he really does love her but in the end i got an answer to my question because...
"Ambrosia only rises when an archangel loves true"
this is an overall a nice read, some parts are kinda boring cause they keep on blabbering and blabbering about Uram and vampires and (blah,blah) but once there is an action scene in this book it will make you go "OMG!" and i'm a sucker for anything gothic and this one is a bit gothic-ish and i like how angels are in this book, they have this so called "angel dust" and according to the book it is way,way,way better than any kind of drug... i'm excited to read the next novel cause Elena is an *gasp* ANGEL!!! yay! and i am looking forward to her relationship with Raphael.. YAY!
if you are fond of reading YA novels this one may shock you, so better prepare yourself LOL
ahhhhhh! *screaming,screaming,screaming* best angel book i've read so far!!!!

as all of have know i am eagerly awaiting for this book, cause i have finished the entire book series and i was really shocked that the author came up with another one my mind just went blank when i heard that Sara Shepard will make another installment of the book series, i was like "OMG!!! the girls won't have their happy ending yet!" *evil grin* . so i have really a high expectation for this book.
this book continued where the previous book has left of, this talks about the life of the 4 girls after Alison's attempted murder, one thing i noticed about this book, is nothing really much has change the girls are still flirty,stupid and gullible as ever, they keep on making the same mistake over and over again!!! I mean come on??? are they that stupid?? gee! (sorry!) gosh!
one thing to look out for in this book is maybe the 4 girls has another secret that they are keeping and A is on the look out to reveal their secret, i guess that's what i am just looking forward in this book, and when i was reading this i can't help but to feel sorry for Aria,Hanna,Spencer and Emily.. they deserve to have at least a normal life but gee... they never get a chance to have a decent life.
Overall: I think you would like this if you are a true blue PLL fan and just adore the characters that much, for me i think i have enough of it. i guess it would have been a great idea if the book just end in Wanted. *sighs* but it is still a nice mystery book, i just think i got tired of the characters and the plot. IDK if I'll read the next one.
this is my first Meg Cabot Novel, I only know Meg Cabot for writing the Princess Diaries series, so i read this book thinking that it's a chick lit no
this is my first Meg Cabot Novel, I only know Meg Cabot for writing the Princess Diaries series, so i read this book thinking that it's a chick lit novel. eventually i was wrong. this book is actually about the retelling of "The rape of Persephone" it's the old Greek myth where Hades, the lord of the underworld kidnapped Persephone and made her queen of the underworld. (ha! thanks to the Percy Jackson series for giving me this info) ^^
so basically the book's main character is Pierce Oliviera, she died once and escaped her death. Along with her coming back to life she brought a necklace with her, a necklace given to her by John or should I say the Hot version of Hades. LOL, that is supposed to keep her away from evil forces (the furies). so at first when i am reading this book i was a bit confused cause the intro did not exactly explained Pierce's death or her coming back to life. since i seldom read book synopsis, so eventually i have no idea what's going on the story, but as you read on you will get the whole idea of her death and her connection to John.
so did i like the book?
well actually some parts are tolerable, i keep on thinking on it's relation to the "rape of Persephone" cause Pierce actually escaped the underworld by throwing a hot cup of tea to John's face so meaning she is not held captive in the Underworld unlike in the myth. this is told from Pierce POV, i don't know if she is really naive or that she doesn't really have sufficient knowledge on her surroundings, she is just kinda actually an impassive character in this book.
as for John, well ha! John is actually my eye-candy... eepppp! i have a huge crush on him he reminds me of Dimitri of vampire academy.
in overall the book is an OK read, kinda boring in some parts but the ending is good, and I'm a sucker for Greek myths and any mythology related books. so I'm quite satisfied on this one, i recommend it to people who like Greek myths as well.
so this book is actually a trilogy and i guess I'm looking forward for the next two books. :) =====
check out my blog guys the YA bookworm just started this blog but i'm done with the basics. but it's still under construction. ^^ ...more
I was so excited to read this book cause for the first time i saw its cover i was so in love with it, never haveOriginally posted @ The YA Bookworm
I was so excited to read this book cause for the first time i saw its cover i was so in love with it, never have i seen a very dark book cover, like the cover is enough for me to presume what is the story all about, i actually have this book's cover as my wallpaper on my phone (yeah,yeah i am that obsessed ^^ ).
anyways, let's proceed with the review... the book is actually about Cas Lowood who has the ability to slay ghosts, actually he slays ghost for living, until he met the ghost named Anna, Anna dressed in Blood...
ok, i really enjoyed reading this YA Novel, it's actually my first time to read a YA lit about ghosts, the first couple pages of the book is actually the moment when you really have to grasp the book to keep up with everything, i really find the first couple of pages of the book a bit more climatic than the middle part of the book.
i fing Anna a very interesting kind of ghost, the way Cas' describe her is really interesting he is like a ghost that is pretty with a dark edge to it, i can describe her a "Deadly yet Elegant" i was actually mostly looking forward to her story, like how was she killed? what was her life before she became a ghost, and thank god the author provided the most detailed and substantive information regarding my questions, when you know Anna Kurlov's story you will go like "OMG!! this is so much like Carrie's story!" (you know Carrie? the old classic horror movie with the shy and timid girl who turns psycho cause she was spilled with blood while being awarded as prom queen) that is how much Anna's story s like it was shocking, . On how was she killed, it never crossed in my mind that she was killed.
another thing i appreciate about this book is that reading from Cas's POV is really how i expected a boy to think, lot of swearing, curses and stuff like that, i like it cause coming from an author that is a girl (Kendare Blake is a girl right??) writing a novel from a guy's POV is kinda hard and as far as i know many girl author fail to deliver a smooth POV from a boy as their main character. so two thumbs up for ms.Blake you have really done a good job in writing this one fantastic novel. I am mostly looking forward on how cas and Anna's blossoming romance would be like, although it kinda bothers me on how Cas can fall in love with a ghost, not just a ghost but a DEADLY GHOST, but i guess that is the power of love.
i Guess I am not the only one that's looking forward for the next book, Girl of Nightmares has still have an indefinite date on when will it be published, kyaaa!! I am also looking forward on what will be the cover be like... :))
