Thoughts:

Wow! Like wow. I finished this so quick because I was just so invested with the whole plot and the characters. But still took this long to write a review ( stupid me πŸ™„). But oh my god! This was soo good. I loved Kesnia’s writing style so much. It’s seems so lyrical and flows effortlessly πŸ‘ŒπŸ». And I absolutely adored the characters. Ailen might be one of my favourite protagonist. I related with her emotions so much, and she’s not the typical YA heroine. Her characters is so raw and realistic. Like a normal teenager ( FINALLY) and had flaws that made her more realistic. And awesome in my opinion. I’m tired of the clichΓ©s. And Hunter! Oh my lord. HUNTER. I don’t know what to say 😭. I just loved him so so much, and I’m kinda sad that the book is over. I miss him already πŸ˜‚. I don’t normally re-read books. But this is definitely part of the minority. And I WILL re-read this. Because I loved it just that much πŸ™ˆ

4.5 stars 

Synopsis:

Sam Baron is about to get the schlock of his life. First his substitute English teacher claims to have turned his old teacher into a lizard; then a strange dwarf named Rego arrives and claims Sam is from a magical realm called Orkney. When his friends are taken prisoner, it’s up to Sam to save them. Sam embarks on a journey to Orkney through a stone fire to find his friends, but when arrives, he discovers that an ancient curse has turned the sun a posisonous red and threatens to destroy the land. With a young witch girl to guide him, Sam must choose: save his friends, or stop the Red Sun from consuiming the land? Drawing on Norse mythology, The Red Sun follows Sam’s journey to uncover the truth about his past- a journey during which he has to overcome the simmering anger inside him, learn to channel his growing magical powers, and find a way to forgive the father who left him behind.

Thoughts:

I honestly didn’t expect to like this as much as I did. It was awesome. Full of adventure and action, with an amazing cast of characters and a well thought out plot. I’m not much of a middle grade person, but this changed my perspective on the whole genre. Like in mostly books *cough* YA. The decisions the characters are making clearly seem dumb and stupid. And you’re arghh Smh. What are you doing? But in this, despite it being a middle grade, the characters are younger, they should be the one making “stupid” decisions. But they are more smarter than the *cough* teens. Sam was such an amazing protagonist. It is always fun to read a book in which is rational rather than the characters ‘coveniently making mistakes for the sake of the plot’. I loved that the book didn’t do that. Most of the times I’m like Ahh! I would never do that and blah blah. But in this, when I put myself in his situation. I realise that I would be torn, but he wasn’t. He was an amazing and reliable protagonist. I’ve only read one Norse Mythology book, so I knew just a little about the main things, but this was definitely very intriguing and created more depth for the myths and made me more interested in Norse myths and this whole genre too. It took me a little longer than it would have normally to read the book because my mid term exams were going on. But I was still hooked to the writing style  and didn’t want to leave the book. Definitely recommend it.

I love books with maps! And look! It has a map of Orkney. So pretty. And these book in general is gorgeous. The second book is even more gorgeous, and I can’t wait to jump into it soon.Also, this is by far one of my most favourite book review to write. I really enjoyed thinking about it, and reviewing it. And I’m really happy with this review. Really hoping you guys like it πŸ™ˆ

Synopsis:

Hi! I’m Madeline, and I’m a Lust-o-holic. In your hands, you are holding my most favourite story of all time. A tale of pure sweetness and beauty as two people learn to love each other under the hand of Al-mighty. Well, okay, it’s my story. My story about how I miraculously met a mind-blowing man that I had a huge crush on, for over a year. And how I had to lurk the real way to have a relationship with a guy. I also learned to cope with my promiscuous dorm roommate, as well as my plastic surgery obsessed bleach blonde mother and her persistent criticism of me and my dyed-black hair and Gothic style. Oh, and did I mention that my crush is a luscious dark/haired, green-eyed musician, and I had to fight with myself to keep my thoughts in control.

Thoughts:

This wasn’t what I expected at all. I never read in this genre and mostly try to stay away from it. But this wasn’t such a bad read. It was cheesy, but I like the clichΓ© characters at some times. The character development was okay ish. But it was such an easy read. I flew through it in a day, and wasn’t emotionally drained as I always am while reading the genres I mostly prefer. It was a quick read. And I will recommend it if you guys are in a slump and looking for a light fluffy read.

Ok guys! Bye bye! πŸ˜€

I will also have another review out today hopefully a little while later, when i complete my over due assignmentsπŸ˜‚. Bye! ❀️❀️

Synopsis:

When high school sophomore Clara Tuffney is hired for a summer internship at an engineering firm, she accepts an invitation to live with her Aunt Maureen in the quiet seaside town of Breach Point, New Jersey.


Soon after arriving, Clara learns of the infamous Breach Point Castle, a haunted attraction that once stood on the town’s busy amusement pier. While searching out the Castle’s former location, Clara befriends Nicholas, a shy local boy. Nicholas introduces Clara to his Uncle Kevin who, along with his friends, worked at the Castle during its prime.


Through Nicholas, Clara discovers that the Castle burned down in a mysterious fire in the early 1980s. She also learns of a local legend – a boy named Eric, rumored to have possessed supernatural powers, was killed in the fire – though many doubt that he actually died. Some of the town’s residents even believe that Eric has returned to Breach Point in the form of a malevolent spirit – a story Kevin sternly cautions Clara against believing.


Clara’s curious nature soon brings her closer to finding out the secret behind what really happened to the Castle and to Eric – though her search for answers places herself, Aunt Maureen, and Nicholas directly in the path of a danger she does not fully understand. 

Review:

Just because Halloween is so close. I thought, why not give this one a read? Because this one was in my review’s pile and it looked pretty interesting. It has a middle grade thriller ish sort of feel. They said that this was going to be a trilogy, which I’m pretty happy about, because I would love to see the Clara’s character development, because she was an intriguing one. Even though, this is not the kind of book to scare you. I loved the spooky idea and my favourite parts were the action scenes. Like when Clara and Nicholas are escaping, and the truck is chasing them. Those ones! They really get me on board and pumped to find out what happens next. Clara was a very intriguing and different one, a satisfactory protagonist too. But I would’ve loved to see some of Nicholas’ POV too. Because I really enjoyed his role in the whole story. Even though, it lacked some action in the middle, still was a very enjoyable read over all, and I’m glad I picked this one. Would definitely recommend this one, if you’re a chicken like me, and are looking for a spooky read this month. Excited to see Clara’s next adventure in the next book.

Alright guys! Have a great day. And here! Have some French fries🍟🍟🍟. You’re welcomeπŸ˜‚. Bye byeπŸ’•

Thoughts: 

Ahh! What an adventure! This was a short one but definitely didn’t fail to live up to my expectation despite being short. It made up with a beautifully crafted world, incredible in characters and just an amazingly awesome writing style which was definitely the best aspect of the book and kept me hooked. I just wanted MORE of it! What a truly talented writer she is. I was shocked at how much I liked it. I honestly loved the bold, sarcastic and quirky characters. Astray and Felix are da best. THE BEST! They are so amazingly crafted and put into this world and suprisingly relatable too. The chemistry between them flows so effortlessly and doesn’t seem forced at all, ahh I love them. The whole concept of the book is really cool and unique. Not being a huge fan of Science Fiction or Dystopian, I was a little hesitant. But the book totally changed my views of this genre. Can’t wait to crack open the next book. Hopefully it’s as awesome as this one. Keep an eye out for the review of that one. And please do leave suggestions :D. Have a great day! or night maybe? Because I’m writing this really late lool πŸ˜›

P.S just take a look at this beootiifoolll cover tho *whisles* πŸ˜‚

Thoughts:

This was such a good read! I’m so obsessed with witches, and everything related because I was like the biggest Charmed ( it’s a 90s tv series) I still am. But this brought back memories of when I bing watched the show on my laptop lol. But yes! It was really creepy too. It wasn’t a good idea to read it alone in my room, late at night haha. Even though I’m a huge chicken when reading creepy books, I really liked this one! The character development is spot on. Rowan felt like such a real character, like her fears, her habits, such a realistic character. And I absolutely adored Blake! OBVIOUSLY! Just one of the best characters of this book, and with he said such quotable lines too, might I say. So dreamy! The book was filled twists which were unexpected and got me hooked. I read it in a day. It’s pretty short, but I forgot that while reading it because it was written quite well.

Also, I was confused at the over at the first, but after reading it. It’s absolutely perfect for the book, it presents one of the main scene of the book. It was definitely the point when the book got really interesting.Hope you guys liked the review, please leave suggestions. Bye bye😽

YA dystopian

A little synopis:

A chance meeting leads to her kidnapping by an underground resistance striving to preserve the human spirit. Violently severed from her singer by the brash young agent, Roark.

Thoughts:

This was an absolutely amazing read. I was in a reading slump, before reading this but this totally put me out of it. I was hooked from the beginning, and I just couldn’t put the book down. Sophia has created a dark and such a unique world. As obsessed with music I am, reading this was quite an experience. And the author showed the power music holds. And her writing style is just ahh! In love with it. It feels like she has chosen the words with so much care, and almost through all of the book I was marvelling at how gifted she is at writing. She has so intricately created an amazing world, and the characters are just as phenomenal. I loved all of them, Ronja, Roark, Henry, Iris and Evie. They just so much feel like real people, I’ve grown attached to all of them. The book was filled with unexpected twists and i wasn’t bored even for a second. It left me desperately waiting for the sequel, Radio, which I’m sure is going to be just as phenomenal. And it has Roark on the cover! *squeals*  Hands down, one of my favourite dystopians.

5 stars! Duh. This was pretty obvious.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
