My Opinion: I just finished the book about 2 minutes ago, so my head is still pounding from the awesomeness of the book!
This thrilling finale of one of my favorite series, The Hunger Games, had me gripping the edge of my chair/bed/couch every time I read. It was filled with pure action and violence.
Katniss matured so much since the first book of the series; emotionally and physically. Primrose too. Peeta was only a bread-boy, but he evolved so much! I AM TEAM PEETA ! I <3 PEETA!(less)

My Opinion : This book was actually pretty good. Although I am kind of scared that what happened it the book could happen in the future, I enjoyed the story. I like Cameron Stracher's writing. Somehow, I felt myself slipping into Vera, the main character and the story's narrator, character andpoint of view, which is really fun. I liked it a lot.
I liked the many details in the story which made it even more realistic due to the fact that I could imagine the scenes almost perfectly. An, there was a kind of complexity - as there always is when presented with a dystopian novel - that made me want more of the story. I love dystopian stories, such as Matched, The Host and of course Delirum (My favorite).
Let's get to the characters*. Vera - the main character and the story's narrator - seemed to be whiny from the beginning. But as the story unrolled, she became more and more courageous. I also liked her relationship with Kai, or Rikkai. It began from simple friendship, to blushes and finally to kisses. I would of liked to have more information on their romantic relationship.
I think to resume it all, I enjoyed the book thoroughly and would like a sequel to it.
*Note: Please take in note that I won't be analyzing every character from a book from now on.(less)

Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.
Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.
My Opinion : This sequel of one of my favorite books; hush, hush, was quite good. I enjoyed it quite a lot, but not as much as the first one. In my opinion, in most series, the first book is great and the last too. But the others would be okay or good, never great. Of course, I thought the plot was good, but it needed something more. And I hate the cliffhanger at the end! I know it's a way for author to make readers read the other book, but I still hate the cliffhanger!
Characters : My favorite character would definitely be Patch! I loved his attitude. At first, when I learned about him maybe killing Nora's dad, I was sure he did it. When I found out he didn't, I was struck!
Then, Vee would come in second place. She is just bright! But a bit stupid, I have to admit.
Nora was quite nice. I bit too dumb at times, but still nice. She was well thought.
Rixon was weird. It was a great twist that he was Nora's father's murderer.

Summary : Magic is dangerous--but love is more dangerous still.
When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.
Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.
Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by--and torn between--two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.
My Opinion : It's been about a month since I've read this book, but it's been calling to me; Review me... please... review me... So you understand why I had to. Some people say this book was slow. But it wasn't. It just had many details in every scene, making it easier for the reader to understand the book.
So as I mentioned earlier in my review, it's been a month since I've read it, and the details are a little blurry. But I still remember enough to make a decent review.
Tessa Gray was actually a bit whiny at first, and so I began to dislike her. But then she stopped whining, and I actually began liking loving the book. And she met Will Herondale, mysterious Will. *sigh* I can't believe the author didn't let them get together!!! I want more of them!
Then there's safe Jem. actually thought Jem was weird. Don't ask me why, I just think so.
The second book is due to publish on December 6th in 2011! I can't wait!!!!!!!!! Since I enjoed this book, another series from Cassandra Clare is in my to-read list. (less)

My Opinion : I decided to (finally) do a book review on Matched, one of the best books I read this year. Please note that I read it in June, so the review is going to be shorter, and it won't have many details. I also decided to review it since I am reading it's sequel, Crossed, and will be putting up a review on the blog soon. So...
Matched was a kind of mix of The Hunger Games and of The Giver, from what I think, since the two 'societies' are controlled a lot (and when I say controlled, I mean even their food is monitored, well, that's in Matched) and, since I loved the two books... well, actually, I loved The Hunger Games and liked The Giver, but that's just... never mind! Since I loved/liked the two books, well, I loved Matched!!!!
Matched was so great! I love the plot; a three-way dramatic romance, well developed characters, and obviously a story that catches the eye.
I really loved Ky; I think he's the best for Cassia and I hope she'll choose him and not Xander, even though Xander is cute and sweet, but Ky is... HOT AND AWESOME!
The writing was maybe slow, but that's what it took for the story to be as good as it is. It's awesome and great, with a writing that flows easily.
The cover is jaw-dropping! I bought Crossed (the sequel) and it looks a-mah-ZING on my shelf, so I think I am going to buy the first one!

My Opinion : Veronica Roth takes us, readers, in the future Chicago where when you are 16 years old, you need to choose one of the five factions; Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful) and Erudite(the intelligent). Somehow, I tended to be an Erudite or a Dauntless.
The beginning was too slow for me. I actually almost gave up reading it since it was too slow, but when I was about to give up; BANG! I then loved the book.
I can't wait for the awaited sequel called 'Insurgent'!
I would recommend this to anybody who likes fiction books. It's a must read.

My Opinion : I have to first say that three hours after reading this book I was still thinking about it. The end was like a big slap on the face. I won't say why, because some people may not want to know it. Here's one thing, I almost wanted to throw the book in my pool because of the ending! Anyways... I LOVED the book. It made me tense. I like Efaw's writing and I learnt a lot of things about law and jail, which I liked. I recommend it to everyone! It teaches not to judge somebody too fast. I loved it!
Character : Devon Sky Davenport would be my favorite character. Let me explain why; she's a goalkeeper like me! She was quite secretive, which didn't help her case. I liked her.
