Crown of Midnight Review

Image
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas



3/5 stars

This book was a huge let down after the first amazing instalment.

This book only remotely got interesting when Nehemia died. 

I felt like Dorian's use in this book could've only been for the end. Otherwise, he was utterly boring and has little to no passion. He was basically a different guy than in the first book!

Let's talk about the problematic relationship of Chaol (which, by the way, was spelt with a K in my previous edition??) and Cel. It was going pretty boring and predictable (even the part when he betrays her) until Cel goes ape-shit on him, and Dorian stops her from killing Chaol. I did appreciate that even after they established their love, that Celaena didn't go all mushy - heroiney. The very last scene with them was laughable- I'm sorry, but how many tragic love stories will there be with the couple separating and then one of them call out that the love the other??? 

Fleetwood was mentioned far too many times for a…

His-BORING Day

An entire day dedicated to all my history topics?

Yes, please!

However, I had to wake up at 4:20PM, catch a 2hr bus, sit in 4 lectures, which weren't useful, and then take 3 hrs to get home?

Ugh.

The cherry on top was that one of the lecturers was an absolute asshole.

I don't think large universities that take 2hrs to commute to every morning are my forte. I thought they were, but if uni is anything like today... I'm going to hate it. Maybe one of the country-hick uni's is the one for me.

I'd type more but I fear anybody associated will discover this post.

I got home, ate some pizza, and tucked myself into bed with Crown of Midnight. In the 34 pages I've read; I enjoyed each page. I can't wait to read further, however I'm about to collapse from exhaustion.

A Rainy Weekend

Hoorah! Hoorah!

It's raining this weekend. Like, bigtime. In the midst of last night, I woke up from my bed radically banging on the wall. The wind was shaking my entire house!

It's all fun and games until the power turns off.

Thankfully, that little mishap only lasted a few minutes. (I needz ma internet and electric blanket)

Luckily, this beautiful weather (completely genuine, I must add. I'm not being sarcastic) has coincided with the rare weekend when I have little to no obligations!

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The rain always energises me and it's when I feel most comfortable. I think most people feel down and drab about it, which is still a wonder to me. You know what makes me feel down and drab? The boiling hot sun draining all energy I had with an excess layer of sweat covering me. That's not fun. So you may call me the crazy one, but damnit! This is beautiful weather!

Being able to snuggle up in my bed is always needed on weekends like these. It happened to be on Frida…

Lament Review

Lament by 


Maybe 3.5 stars? I haven't decided.

To be fair, I wasn't expecting this book to be phenomenal or anything of the sorts. After all, I did find it in a Goodread's "Worst Paranormal YA Romance" list. Which I need to address-- this wasn't paranormal? It was fantasy???

If you liked Mark Blackthorn from Lady Midnight, I'd highly suggest you meet Luke from Lament. They pretty much have the same levels of angst and hotness.

This story's blurb did mislead me, though. I thought it would be about this girl who was a bit of an Alice, and fell into a faerie sort of world-- and somehow meeting her love interest, Luke, caused implications of her leaving. However, this was not the case. It was more about this girl from Wyoming (I think? I need to disclaim that this book made me go into slump and I didn't want to read anything, thus I took a 3 week break and can't remember the first half of the book) who is very musical, and lives a pre…
