2.5

RTC
Simona Bartolotta is 27% done with Link: “Could that even happen? Could a beam of light exiting a black hole reach us?”
“I suppose it’s possible. It would have to be extremely strong, defying all measurement and intensity of light as we know it."

The whole explanation is totally ridiculous, but anyway my question is: do you realize your second statement practically contradicts the first, little Einstein? So much for science talk.

Lately all the books I have stumbled across (figure of speech: it almost takes me more time to decide what I'm reading next than to actually read the thing) have put me in a difficult (or, depending on how you look at it, so easy tha

"This wasn't home."


•Since I first heard of The Marked Girl, it became one of the priorities in my wishlist. I'm not sure what exactly in the blurb caught my attention so much, that thing is that I almost couldn't wait for it. I didn't even expect

Uh-uh. Uh-uh. Fluff and hot air, hot air and fluff.

I'll see if a full review is worth my time.

EDIT 12/06/2016: Now I've read the third book and I can rightly say it: a full review isn't worth my time. Pardon me this time around.
