Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas | Review

I recently participated in a read-a-long with Tika (fANGIRLavue.blogspot.com) and Jen (jennieelousisee.blogspot.co.uk). You can find their thoughts on their blogs! We read Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas because we all wanted to read it! The read-a-long followed a schedules which you can find on Tika's blog! (No spoilers)


DAY 1: So far, the book started out a little slow. The world is very interesting and I really like the story. There has been a lot of world building and there are a lot of places. I think this book has the potential to live up to it's raving reviews!

DAY 2: I really like Celaena. I think she has a awesome personality. She isn't one of those fake book characters who has the perfect everything. I think Chaol is great. He is caring and I think he is going to take very good care of Celaena.

DAY 3: I don't think there is just one chapter I would rewrite, rather than a part of one or two.

DAY 4: I really loved the chapter(s) that featured the Ball bec…

Summertime Madness Tag.

Ever time I would try to type the title I kept entering sadness instead of madness. Summer is almost over and I want to take advantage of it before I miss my chance to do this awesome tag created by JackEatsBooks. 

1.  Show a book with a summery cover.! i.e, sun, beach, ect. 

    I choose We were liars by E. Lockhart. This cover feature a group of teenagers playing in the water and the sun is shining.  It all looks very summery.

2.  Pick one fictional place that would be perfect for your summer vacation!

     This was hard because I kept picking actual places instead of fictional ones. So I'm going to go with the planet L’eihr from Alienated by Melissa Landers. Who wouldn't want to travel to another planet for vacation? Not to mention all the hot aliens!

3. You’re about to go on a flight to your Summer Vacation. But you want to read a book that lasts for the whole flight so what novella do you choose?

I choose The Darkest  Minds novella: In time, because I haven't read i…

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

First thought: This book was so beautiful and poetic. It really messed with my head until the end, and then it messed with my emotions. It is true that you should go into this book with no knowledge of the plot.

Overview: I can't tell you the plot. Even the slightest thing could be a spoiler. This book has a mysterious/fairytale theme. The main protagonist Cadence retells the same story several times like a fairytale but she changes the setting and characters. All in all it is very hard to explain.

Favorite character: Gat hands down. He is such an interesting character.

I definitely recommend that you all read this book. It is probably one of my favorite summer books so far! I'm sorry this review was so short but I do not want to spoil anyone.

Rating: 5/5

August TBR!

I cant believe August is here already! Back-to-school season is here and that means summer is coming to an end. The start of a new month also means a new pile of books that I want to read. August has some very worthy books, so lets get started!


#1 Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins ( Anna and the French Kiss #3)

     Let's face it! This is on everyone's TBR. This is the third book in the series. Stephanie Perkins novels are the perfect mourning period read. I recommend you start the series ASAP! This book will hit shelves August 14th.


#2 Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout ( Lux series #5)

      I am reading the fourth book in this series and boy am I loving it! This series is fast-paced and the characters are swoon worthy! Its never to late to begin especially with the new fancy covers! This book will be available August 5th.


#3 Magnolia by Kristie Cook

      In Magnolia Branch, Mississippi the Cafferty and Marsden families are the kings and queens …

July Wrap-up!

In the month of July I read 7 books! I am happy with the books I finished and I am ready to share them with you.


      The first book I read was Reboot by Amy Tintera. This is a Dystopian novel told from Wren Connolly's perspective. When she was shot and killed five years ago she came back stronger, faster, and less human. She is now a Reboot. Reboots become less human the longer they stay dead. Wren 178 is the longest time ever recorded. She is now a soldier. When she starts training Callum 22, one of the shortest times, he is slower and always smiling. When he doesn't follow an order Wren is given one chance to get him in line or she will have to execute him herself. She has started to fall for him and she will do anything to keep him alive. She is done following orders.


        The next book I read was a re-read for me and that was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling. If you haven't read this series I highly recommend you do!
