I thought Snow was the worst villain ever, but when I knew the truth, I hated Coin more. At the beginning I didn't really like her though.
I love the propos :)
I was worried about the hijacking thing because I was afraid Katniss and Peeta won't end up together. Then there's the scene when Katniss eavesdropped to Peeta, and Gale. I thought she will never choose between them.
There are times when I don't know if I'll cry, or laugh. There are a lot of people who died :( I hope Prim, and Finnick didn't. I like them. Especially Finnick, I really like his character. I cried a lot because of him .. When he's on his own world, when he saw Annie, the wedding, when he died :( SC shouldn't kill him, but I guess it makes Mockingjay more realistic. I doubt there are Finnick haters. I guess Annie will not be mad because she has her little boy that will remind her of Finnick. After all Katniss did to save her little sister, it only took Gale's bomb to kill her :/ Then I wish Cinna is alive, even though I know, deep inside, he's dead :(
I like Johanna .. She's real. I laughed hard because of her :D Boggs is a good leader :) HAYMITCH! Who doesn't like him?
I wish Gale came back to 12 and be friends with Peeta and Katniss! I don't know what happen to him. I just know he has a fancy job ..
Then I thought Katniss will never speak again :( I can't believe Katniss said Yes to the Hunger Games. She, of all people knows how to be in the arena. And then I realized she only did that to make Coin believe that she's on her side ..
A bitter sweet ending.
I cried, and cried, and cried like a child :( It's the most emotional book I've ever read. *I've read The Host, and Sparks novels* I wish SC will write a spin-off series/a book about the characters that were not mention in the epilogue. The Hunger Games is over. Real or not real?(less)

The hard part about the sequel is sometimes it can't live up to the expectations of the first book. Most of the time, Lily was thinking about terapped problems repeatedly which became irritating. She was irrational. And what happened to the romance? I can't believe she bonded with Tellin. I know she wanted to help the kingdoms under the sea, but still. .(less)

First, I was hesitant to read it because it was only a prequel to TMI, and I thought it was boring for it was set in 1878. Thank God I was wrong! XD I LOVE EVERY PART OF IT!! :)
*awfully good, fast paced, funny, full of action, twists and turns, of course, romance ♥
I reread some sentences because I was like, “Really?” I can’t believe that happened!
The characters are all unique in their own way. They have their own flaws and charms. I’ve fallen in love with some of them.
William or James? Now, that’s the hardest question I’ve ever encountered while reading a book. Usually, I go for the leading man (in this case, Will), but now, I’m torn between them; a first for me! Tessa is so lucky! (Unfortunately, she doesn’t know it)
Even though it was set in London, I might as well be there because I saw everything clearly in my eyes. The way Ms. Clare wrote it, it was detailed; you will not have a problem imagining it. In the last part, I didn’t know I was holding my breath until I exhaled from relief. Cassandra Clare has a brilliant mind! I really thought .. WOW! Unbelievable, but possible. (Note: those who read CA knows what I mean.) I found my face glued to this book. I almost got late for I can’t quit reading it!
It’s interesting to know what happened before the characters from TMI were born. Those Shadowhunters in CA are different from TMI. Magnus Bane was here! "Black hair and blue eyes are my favorite combination." (Now I know why Alec) ** Camille too, even though her name was just mentioned in TMI; I've read that she’ll be in CoFA. Oh, and Tessa was in CoG. Does that mean she’ll outlive Jem and Will? >.< Church! Who would have thought? XD
I don’t know which I like more; TMI or CA. I’m glad I don’t have to choose when it’s fiction! *.*
There are some (a lot) questions unanswered. Hopefully, we can know all about them in Clockwork Prince or if not, in Clockwork Princess. Speaking of, I can’t wait to read the next book! CA is definitely one of the best!
I want to live inside this book. Talk about cliffhanger! It was indeed a great one! :)

And then, the more I read, the more I noticed the similarities with other novels >.< Can't help but compare. I'm still going to read the second book (Hades) because I want to know what will happen next. And I'm not the kind of reader who will not finish what she started.(less)
At first, I thought it was just another best friend-loves-best friend-loves-new guy thing. I was right, but not what I expected. It got better and better as I read more. (Note: If you think like a writer, you'll know something that might happen.)
The plot reminded me a little of Hunger Games (perfect/imperfect Society, rebellion) but it's still great. In the middle of the book, I just then noticed that blue eyes, blonde hair = Peeta, black hair, dark blue eyes = Gale. And then I dismissed the thought. How can I like something if I keep comparing it to others?
Cassia, the protagonist, is not annoying, thank goodness! She's not a damsel in distress. As the story progress, so does her character. She changed into a strong person which made the story more interesting.
KY. What can I say about him? A mysterious guy who keeps everything to himself, but when he and Cassia get to know each other, we learned about his story. It's not a lot to take in because he gave it piece by piece.
Xander, the best friend. First, I really really liked him. I thought he was perfect for Cassia, for the Matched. They don't need the microcard because they already know each other. I still liked him until the end, but I prefer the main guy.
A lot of talking; less action. I like the writing style; it's beautiful . The words blend together perfectly. KY and Cassia have a perfect chemistry. The way their love story blossom, oh so sweet ♥ I don't want to live inside this book. Creepy. They don't have a choice in whatever they do.
Ms. Ally Condie did a great job with this book! The ending is quite fast. I can't wait to read Crossed!(less)

The story lacks in details (description, people, places, feelings) but the story is great; definitely worth reading :)
Brit is compassionate. She really loves her sister with all her heart. She was weak at first, but when she became close to Alex, she grows into a whole person. Fearless in the sense that she can do anything for the people she loves. We forgive people simple because we still want them in our life.
Alex. Alejo. Alejandro. *sigh dreamily*. I want to meet someone like him, minus the gang part. I like his POV more than Brit. I couldn’t stop laughing when I read his thoughts though I didn’t understand some of the words because they were in Spanish. I like to learn that language!
Poor Paco, but he definitely was the best friend of the story; a loyal buddy. He did everything to save Alex’s life.
Mrs. Peterson FTW! :D
The ending was quite fast. I want more! After reading the book, I couldn’t wipe the grin off my face. (less)

At first I was hesitant to read this because I thought the protagonist would be slutty. I've never been so glad to be so wrong =D I wanted to try something new, so I didn't read the synopsis before reading the book -- I had NO idea what it was all about.
The perfect book for the month of heart :)
Anna and the French Kiss is simply AMAZING! I fell in love with the characters almost instantly. They are so easy to like. I read it in the middle of the night just to finish it and to know how it will end.
The setting is in Paris, France so what more can I ask for? This is just perfect! The way the author, Stephanie Perkins, describe it, it feels I want to go to Paris now more then ever.
I love it, like really! ♥ I can relate to it; it's high school drama -- have you not been to high school and found out your crush and almost girl best friend are together, without you knowing? Then when you settle down, you fall in love with your boy best friend! You can't be together because he has a girl friend. And you don't even know what he feels about you. There are a lot of ups and downs, confusing moments, but they didn't lose the hope that everything will be alright in the end.
The way Anna and Etienne's relationship bloom, and grow into something more is believable. They get to know each other slowly, then fall for each other without the other knowing about it. I want to crawl inside this book and kiss Etienne myself. He's just so *sighs dreamily* :3
This is just so sweet and oh so romantic *.*(less)

Like, brilliantly amazing! I should not be surprised because we're talking about Stephanie Perkins here. Her first book - Anna and the French Kiss is on my top list of favorites.
Let's talk about the characters.
Lola Nolan. A teenager who is mature for her age, and who doesn't believe in fashion but in costume. I like her personality! I like her character, and I enjoyed being inside her head.
Cricket Bell. Oh my! He gave the moon and the stars to Lola! <3 He is love. Love, love, love. Enough said :)
Anna and Étienne. Asdfghjkl! They're here! But I did not expect that they would have great impact in the book. I'm so happy to continue reading their story.
Max. The ex boyfriend. I knew from the beginning that he was a jerk. No surprise there.
Calliope Bell. A true phenomenal ice skater. Even though she was a nemesis at first, I was not irritated with her. It's as if I understand why she did all of that. But I don't tolerate it.
Nathan and Andy. The parents. Very strict and protective of their daughter. Their love for her is genuine and comforting.
The story will make you smile, laugh, and fall in love. The scenes that happened are believable and realistic. It will give you hope and you will learn lessons about family, friendship, and love. And you'll realize that good things comes to those who wait.
There's no problem in being yourself because the people who loves you will accept you no matter what.
