It’s filled withKat, Incorrigible is a witty, adventurous and undeniably adorable read! It’s the kind of book that I’d love to read again and again! It’s filled with adventures and laugh out loud moments! I utterly love it!
I have lots of favorite parts in the book but Kat is the main reason why I wholeheartedly enjoyed the story. She’s gutsy, independent and a smart one, too. For me, she’s not the typical “ass-kicking” heroine. I think Kat has her own way of being a brave which I truly admire about her. She’s also outspoken and lively and just utterly adorable! I enjoyed all of the characters as well. I thought they are very well-written and developed. I just love reading them and getting to know each and every one of them.
I also love Kat’s relationship with her sisters, Elissa and Angeline. Their bickering will definitely sent you on a giggle fit which is another thing why I enjoyed the book. No page will bore you. Everything about this book is just tremendously entertaining and that’s because Stephanie Burgis is a wonderful story-teller!
I’m giving Kat, Incorrigible a perfect 5 of 5 stars and a hug for Stephanie for crafting such a wonderful book filled with adventures, fun and a one-of-a-kind heroine like Kat. I cannot wait to read the next book!...more
Fierce, unstoppable and utterly unforgettable. Darkness Becomes Her is a story that no one should miss! I. LOVE. IT. For days, I was harnessing the riFierce, unstoppable and utterly unforgettable. Darkness Becomes Her is a story that no one should miss! I. LOVE. IT. For days, I was harnessing the right words to describe my feelings over this story. I was left completely breathless! It’s definitely one of the best I’ve read this year.
Everything about this book is SO original and innovative. Kelly Keaton’s writing was incredibly wicked. I especially like how she rebuilt the city of New Orleans into this peculiar, terrifying yet enthralling world of New 2.
The premise was simply amazing and mind-blowing! Almost all of the supernatural and mythical creatures’ favorites are present in this brilliantly crafted story. From the first few pages, I was already hooked up. There are questions already to fill your head and as the story goes on, it’ll fill your head with some more. The action scenes, which were relentless and utterly riveting, is one of my favorites as well as how Ari’s past unfolds. It’s like a bomb that will blow your mind off.
The characters are richly developed and are very easy to love. So far, I’ve been reading books with these tough, independent and kick-ass heroines and Ari, the protagonist of the story, is a fantastic addition to these types of characters. She’s so tangible despite the fact that the story falls into the paranormal sort. The other characters as well are as just lovely. Sebastian is a major hottie. I really need to say that. I totally melted in some of his and Ari’s scenes. He’s definitely swoon-worthy!
Darkness Becomes Her is a story of courage, love and embracing yourself, your flaws and also learning that what truly matters is one’s inside and not the outside. The ending is a little bit frustrating but not in an annoying way. Oh, did I mention it’s a trilogy?Yes, it is. The story is just starting to get better and I can’t wait to read the sequel and the next one after that.
Bottomline: This book is definitely TO-DIE-FOR. I definitely recommend this book to those who loves supernatural beings like vampires, witches, shape-shifters mixed with mythical creatures like Gods and Goddesses. You will definitely devour Darkness Becomes Her....more
Looking for a whole new level of Paranormal Fantasy read? Then Burn Bright is the book you're looking for! Burn Bright, the first book from Night CreaLooking for a whole new level of Paranormal Fantasy read? Then Burn Bright is the book you're looking for! Burn Bright, the first book from Night Creatures Trilogy, is an intense, unpredictable and addictive page turner!
That gorgeous cover right there is first thing that caught my attention and then after reading the plot synopsis, I knew I must read it. Thankfully I was able to read it after some fiasco that almost stop me from reading this astonishing book.
Moving on, reading Burn Bright is definitely has been a one-of-a-kind experience for me. My favorite part of this brilliantly written story is definitely its thrilling, unique and, like what I said, unpredictable plot. There are so many parts in the story that I didn't really see coming. I really have no idea at all on what to expect on the next pages which kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it. Marianne de Pierres is an amazing and ingenious writer. The world building is utterly convincing and just bewitching. Ixion is an exotic, inviting yet terrifying world all at the same time. The way Burn Bright was presented simply took my breath away. The idea of Ripers and Night creatures and pretty much everything about Ixion is SO ENCHANTING! Seriously, no one should miss this awesomesauce of a book!
What makes Burn Bright more interesting was that the riveting plot was paired with well-written and dynamic characters. I genuinely enjoyed all of the characters in this story, from the protagonist, Retra (I was most especially astonished with her development on the story. It's totally awesome!), along with her friends Suki and Rollo. Lenoir....he's really something. He's very, very interesting and I think he's one of the characters that keeps the story intense! I can't quite spell out how I really feel towards him for now, although he is no doubt very intriguing. He's one of the many reasons why I cannot wait to finally read Angel Arias, the sequel, which I think is going to be released this year as well but I'm not entirely sure, because I'm really looking forward into getting to know more the characters and that cliffhanger on the end.... I almost forgot how to breathe.
Bottomline, Burn Bright rocked my socks! I'm giving it 5 of 5 stars and I STRONGLY recommend this engrossing read to everyone who dared to enter the world of Ixion. ...more
The Last Olympian is, indeed, fantastic and fulfilling conclusion to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series! I am more than happy that I was ableThe Last Olympian is, indeed, fantastic and fulfilling conclusion to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series! I am more than happy that I was able meet Percy and be with him and his friends on their amazing and incredibly fun adventure!
This is definitely one of my favorite Percy Jackson books! It was packed with action from the very first page until the very last! Everything is heightened in this book, the adventure, the threat and, of course, the fun. The pacing, as always, is brilliant. Rick Riordan is definitely one of my favorite authors when it comes to pacing, he's done an amazing job with all the Percy Jackson books. Every questions left unanswered in the previous books was finally answered in this one, like why there's a girl named Rachel Elizabeth Dare all of a sudden? What's her purpose? Or is Percy and Annabeth finally going to hook up or what? Or what does the Great Prophecy truly means? And the way Rick tied all the loose ends from the previous books with this one was just effortlessly incredible. *spoiler alert* I think that prophecy in the end has something to do with the new series, Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero. I cannot wait to read that! *end of spoiler*
Also, one of the things I truly love about Percy Jackson books is the humor. I don't know how many times I actually laughed out loud while reading the book despite the gloomy and intense atmosphere. Also, I admit that it took me over a week to I finish this book. I have this habit that I savor each page of every last book in the series, I'm not sure if others do that too but that's what I do.
I'm giving The Last Olympian a 5 out of 5 stars plus a HUGE hug for Rick Riordan for bringing Percy Jackson and his world into my life. I HIGHLY recommend this to those who had read the previous books as well as to those who wants a wonderful, easy and satisfying read. And seriously, to those who has not read the series yet, oh Gods! You are so missing half of your life! ...more
Oh. My. Gods. I love this book! The Titan's Curse is definitely my second favorite on the series (my first favorite is The Lightning Thief). I'm not sOh. My. Gods. I love this book! The Titan's Curse is definitely my second favorite on the series (my first favorite is The Lightning Thief). I'm not sure if I've mention this before but I'm inlove with this series so much. And can I just say that Rick Riordan is one of the coolest author ever stepped on this planet.
Like in first and second book, The Titan's Curse is just the right amount of everything. Full of action, cool and funny dialogues which is enough to make you crack on your seat and of course, twists and turns that will leave you breathless! It's perfectly paced and I'm sure if you enjoyed the first and second one, you'll love this one too!
Do I need to say more?
One of the things why I'm always excited in reading this book, is because I know that Rick will throw new characters into the scene again. And I was correct! Rick perfectly introduced them one by one. Ever since I've read about Thalia on the first book, I've always got intrigued by her and in this book, Rick highlighted Thalia's personality pretty well and I ended up liking her. She's as funny, sarcastic and tough as Percy.
The adventure of course is my favorite part in the story as well as Percy's growing feelings toward Annabeth. I'm just really, really excited for them.
The difference of this book from the first two? The Titan's Curse is definitely darker than first two with more mysterious aura. I don't want to give out anything so I'll just leave you with that.
My favorite character aside from Percy and his gang? Zoe Nightshade. I didn't like her in the first few chapters. I thought she was too uptight but after I've finished reading the book, I knew she's really something. She’s very elegant but tough as well. I adore her firm belief and faith to her own principles and her loyalty towards Lady Artemis.
I recommend this just because it's very entertaining and such a fantastic read....more

I had high expectations on this book, perhaps because I’ve seen the movie first? And I have this mindset that most of the books that are being adapted into a movie had made an exceptional mark on the literary world. Percy Jackson was, indeed, exceptional!
I love the book more than the movie, no surprise there really, I’ve got so used on that feeling after seeing books turn into a movie that did not successfully lived up to how great the book was, but don’t get me wrong, I liked the movie although not as much as I liked the book.
Moving on, The Lightning Thief definitely exceeds my expectations. I love the book so much that I don’t even know where to begin. I’ll just sum up everything I liked and hopefully, I make sense in here.
The concept of the story was fresh, tremendously creative and undeniably fascinating! I just love how Riordan smoothly banded these mythology beings and creatures with the day to day living. Every thing was detailed but not in a complex way, the pacing was in perfect timing and everything was balanced– the action, adventure, drama and of course the humor. Not a single page bore me. From the first chapter, there’s already something happening that will keep you engrossed into the story.
The characterization was simply wonderful. I may sound biased but Percy Jackson is my favorite character in the book and now one of my favorite literary heroes as well. He definitely broke the all-tough-and-mighty-hero mediocre. He’s actually flawed, he gets into a lot of trouble at school (like getting expelled 6 times in row), and not to mention he has ADHD and Dyslexia which is connected to him being a Demigod (half-human, half-god). Almost every kid can relate to him, he’s sensible and very human.
The Lightning Thief is a fantastic start of the series. I’m rating this 5 out of 5. I really enjoyed reading this book not only because it’s a great read but it’s a fun way of learning too. I’ve learned a lot about the ancient Greek Mythologies and stuff alike and by saying that, I HIGHLY recommend this especially to those Greek mythology junkies. I’m sure they’ll enjoy this a lot since the Gods and Goddesses (and not to mention, monsters) were in a whole new and fresh setting. ...more

I was sucked into the story before I know it!
Blood Red Road, is a gripping, unique and engaging story I’ve never read before. I’ve read quite some of dystopian novels before but this one is widely different. I felt strongly connected not only with the characters but with the engaging setting of this book as well. The brutality, fear and uncertainty of life are thick and palpable in this unpredictable story. I think one of the things that make Blood Red Road stands out from other dystopian books was the writing style of the author. It was written in a very different yet interesting way. I’ll admit that at first I thought it was going to choke my enjoyment or grasp of the story because I struggled to understand some of it during the first few pages but I eventually got used to it.
In addition to the unpredictable plot, the characters are very well-written. I’ve never met a protagonist as enormously stubborn as Saba which I personally think helped her a lot considering how cruel the world she’s living in. But for the most part, I actually liked it about her. I honestly hesitated if she’s worth a protagonist during the first part of the story because, like I said, she's so stubborn and she's dependent and possessive to her twin brother, Lugh, and she’s relentlessly mean to her little sister, Emmi. But as the story goes by, she’s grown on me and the journey she’d been through transformed her into this smart, strong and independent girl with unwavering love and faith for those she truly cares about. Her development in the story was one of my favorite aspects of the story. I also enjoyed the supporting characters; the blending of their personality truly made the story much more enjoyable and extreme along with Saba. And I just want to add that I genuinely hate the villain in this story. He’s a madman, vicious and just oozing with evilness!
Blood Red Road is definitely one of the best YA books I’ve read. With its original and absorbing plot, raw and fearless characters, I’m giving this 5 out of 5 stars and I strongly recommend this book to all YA fiction junkies and hardcore dystopian readers. This book will take you to the next level!

Suzanne created such a strong, fantastically written and irrefutably drawing plot. The characters have such solid and diverse dispositions and there is no way you won’t like them. Speaking of characters, Katniss, in my opinion, is the most awesome heroine ever. She definitely topped my “most favorite heroine of all-time list”. I love the chemistry between Katniss and Peeta, as well, they’re so cute together and they definitely complement each other. The pacing was also perfect and the world building was very vivid.
The Hunger Games is definitely a wild roller coaster ride of emotions. It’s filled with gripping suspense and action that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It was atrocious and tear-jerking and with a charming romance all at the same time. Seriously, I think these words are probably not enough to describe how this book consumed me.
But if I were to describe this book in one word: EPIC. It is no doubt, one of the best books I’ve ever read and I know I’m going to miss half of my life if I didn’t. I recommend this book to all age groups. I can’t wait to read the second book, Catching Fire!...more
