2.5 stars

I don't consider Sarah J. Maas to be one of my favourite authors yet, but she's definitely one whose books I would still pick up because her writing and world is just that deliciously good and seeping with potential. She's promising.

Going into An Ember in the Ashes without any high expectations, I was left pleasantly surprised. The first chapter threw me into a dark atmospheric realm of lost, sadness and fear; as the following chapters continue to get better and better,

Perhaps I'm being too generous with giving Fangirl three stars. I didn't hate this book, but I didn't like it that much either. I suppose I was expecting something much more than from what I received. This book was all the rage last year; I've been w ...more

Oh, Marie Lu, you've hurt me. You've hurt me bad. (view spoiler)

***Review in both French and English***

Mon avis en français :

La lecture commence plutôt froidement et sans espoir : le mari de Amy Dunne, Nick, nous raconta de la tête de sa femme… et ce qui est à l‘intérieur. Amy Dunne est perdue—manquant, en fait.

Il me faut admettre que je suis plutôt jalouse à chaque fois que j’entends ou lis à propos des voyages de quelqu’un en Europe. Mon continent préféré est l'Europe. Je l’adore. Le fait que l'Europe consiste en de nombreux pays co

"If I stay. If I live. It’s up to me."

Giving this a two star rating genuinely hurts me. I adore Forman's writing, especially with Just One Day, she did an excellent job with the showing of the setting in Paris and even for that one chapter in the UK.
