No other way to say this aside from that is sucked???? It?? Was???? Crap????????

This is basically a girl from year 10, writing in her diary, a week before her semi formal.

Now I've only just graduated, and that may have been 2 years ago for me, but this was pathetic.

She seems completely self absorbed, desperate for high achievement and a boy to validate her during the semi formal.

She's a bit of a brat. Completely 2 dimensional.

And I kept wondering why isn't this matching a proper Year 10's perspective.

Oh yeah.

It was written by some middle aged guy.

Of. Course.

This was a terrible read. I forced myself to read it because my book club bought it for he library and were curious.

Ugh.

Review: A Million Suns

4/5 stars

HOLY FREX!!!

I can't believe that is it for the 2nd novel. I NEED MORE!!!!!! (Luckily I have the sequel in my lap right now)

A few notes:

1. I didn't enjoy Amy and Elder breaking up. That seemed abrupt and unthoughtful.
2. I didn't enjoy how the majority of this book was set in Elder's mind. He's too biased.
3. I had so much fun trying to figure out the clues from Orion!! That was intense the entire time. THE PLOT TWIST AT THE END????? Gah! Love it.
4. I can't believe they trusted Doc. Again. He's no good????? Why do they believe him?????????????
5. Victra can die bye.

It was almost 400 pages but felt like 200. I need to read more!

I cannot believe it didn't end with them landing on the planet. After all of that???

My final thought is that I liked that we finally found out the rest about the Plague. That was interesting!

A goo…

Review: Secret Vampire, Daughters of Darkness, and Enchantress

3/5 stars.

Wasn't something I'd rave about, but good if you're wanting some cliche vampire romance.

The writing reminds me of Steph Meyer's in Twilight (but just the first book). But less entertaining.

Book 1 was completely predictable and I felt like it had a lot of similarities to her other series, TVD. It was just 2 alpha males battling for most of the time over a dying girl who had cancer.

Book 2 had a terrible beginning that I loathed but the ending was so sweet and not cliche at all?????? Loved it.

Book 3 was boring and about the ugly duckling who finally gets a boy to choose her over the 'Aphrodite' witch. They were both petty and I didn't enjoy it.

What a beautiful story!

It was lovely to read such an Aussie centred book :)

I'm just gonna say it; Nick sounded like a total dag and I can't believe he was the love interest.

I got shivers as the end when it was Sorry Day. Ugh!!!!!!! I'm tearing up now.

Yeh alright this is fine. It wasn't the worst I've read from SJM, but in no means was is terribly epic for me. I'm sorry but everything is so predictable??????

Oh except for a certain hook up.

Manon. Dorian.

Gross.

Sorry (not sorry).

Once again, SJM introduces characters that I don't care for, and can't follow??????? Why??? Does? She?? Do!? THIS?!!!!!

Idk guys, her writing has improved and she wrote the action really well, but now her romance scenes are lacking. Like I swear every dramatic moment HAS to be written in truncated, obvious statements. Do you know what I mean?

An actual scene most likely:

He wanted her. All of her. Fire. Passion. The moon was shining. It wasn't that he wanted (some profound, unrelated notion), it was HER.

Do you see the BS???? Why does nobody see the BS???????? I feel like I'm the only one STILL…

This book is trash??

Like I know it's supposed to be cynical and funny, but I kept thinking: if this book was made into a TV show, I would strongly oppose EVER watching it.

I appreciated the sarcastic tone at the start, but eventually it got tiring after almost 400 pages, ugh.

I'm glad I've finally read it, tho.

But guys; it had footnotes. DO YOU KNOW HOW KICH I HATE THAT????????? Trash. Such trash.

3/5 stars.

It wasn't bad but I wasn't terribly excited from it???

The writing reminded me of of Divergent! Which I would've looooved 5 years ago. Now… not so much?

I was heartbroken about Enzo's story.

This character has a lot of hate and I'm interested by that.

"Now it's my time to hurt."

Mmm okay group of murderers, have fun XD.

I'd definitely recommend this book to somebody who loves history and Divergent. And possibly Hamlet?? (I saw quite a few similarities, particularly the time period, loyalty to father, he GHOST?!!!).

This wasn't bad?? But it wasn't really interesting.

I liked the idea of it, but most of this was pretentious crap about 4 young people from Melbourne, who all seemed like hipsters (from 1986).

Aw. What a fluff piece that was lol.

Very cliche.

Very romantic.

It's a feel good sort of book.

I have nothing to complain about, I really enjoyed the world. The gossip was cheeky and hilarious, "why are you drinking cinnamon thorn tea". That was probably my favourite scene. Idk where Mead comes up with this stuff; but I love it!

WOWOWOW!

This book was AMAZING!

It was so interesting with such sassy characters, it was really enjoyable to read (yay!).

I really hope there's a sequel??? This couple is adorable.

Overall, it's just a bunch of fluff. But I like it. It has hot pirates, time travelling and a sizzling (but still Teen rated) romance involved.

I am also a history buff so this journey was really cool to read about too.

BLESS THIS BOOK!!! Such a great book.

Would I read it again? Probably not. It's one of those books you wish you could forget bc so much happens that's a plot twist, but I know all of it now :/ maybe I'll have to wait a year to be surprised again :)

This isn't as good as Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights, but still a lovely story!

I only knew to follow on because I've seen half of the miniseries. Without it, I think I may have been extremely lost while trying to follow the story.

Meh? I had high hopes for this book bc of the ratings on GR, but guys???????? What happened??

I REALLY LIKED THE ENDING!!! That was perfect :)

But this was high key boring and predictable?

It seems like it suits younger YA readers more, so maybe that's why I didn't enjoy it as much.

For me, Cinder as a character was very 2D. So was Prince Kai.

I read the blurb and thought this book was a great idea! But… meh. I'll read the sequel maybe, like I did for the ToG series, just because everybody likes it.

Are You Seeing Me? Review

Image
Are You Seeing Me? by Darren Groth


What a beautiful book!!!

I enjoyed that it was from an Australian author-- I don't see many in the YA genre.

This book wasn't eye opening for disabilities, but it was still a valued read if you're looking for a diverse book. It just isn't as educational.

Perry was such an awesome character. His thoughts and points were stuff I like to think about. I realised this when he discussed Hurricane Katrina vs the Haiti earthquake, and which was worse.

I'd recommend this read, sure! I probably won't reread it, though.

I have tears running down my face as I write this review... THIS BOOK HAS RUINED ME.

Let's take a trip down memory lane, aka my notes/updates while reading this book, to see how far I've come:

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) Review

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



5/5 stars.

IM DEAAAAAD. I CANT BELIEVE THIS IS THIS LAST ONE. I WANT MORE.

Okay so I honestly thought the other 2 sequels wouldn't match up to the romance of Anna and St Clair.

And I was right. For Lola and Cricket (they weren't nearly as interesting or passionate).

But I was also wrong. For Josh and Isla. Bc they, my ladies and gents, were actually THE BEST COUPLE of all 3 books.

Maybe it's because the way Isla has a crush is identical to my own. In every thought process and emotional reaction, we are uncanny.

(Ps I don't like her younger sister, Hattie).

Maybe it's because Josh is probably the most attractive of the 3 male leads.

Maybe it's because I just spend 6 weeks in NYC and have fallen deeply for the city this romance partially takes place.

This book is way less (but still) angsty than Anna and the French Kiss.

It was sunshine and rainbows until Josh sent his care package. Btw…

Lolita Review

Image
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov



Of course this is a sick concept. But I love the complexity nonetheless.

It is written so beautifully. From beginning to end, I never once read a sentence that I thought was worth less than the 5/5 star rating I've given the novel.

You can easily take either side for this novel: H.H. was a gross, pedophilic man, or Lo was responsible for H.H.'S obsession.

I choose both.

I will never say that it's Lolita'a fault that any of this happened-- she was 12 and deranged (from the sounds of it). But she was looking to cause trouble. She was just caught in the worst case scenario of repercussions.

You can read the guilt from H.H. throughout the entire novel, which proves he knew he did wrong, but had enough 'love' to carry through. I love the format of him addressing the readers. I cannot describe how well this adds to the book.

I do believe this is a love tragedy. I have my reasons. Some choose to dismiss them, because they're focusing so…

Jane Eyre Review

Image
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë


THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD I CANT EVEN FATHOM HOW TO WRITE IT IN A REVIEW!!!

Sure, it's """"""old"""""" English, but hey-- if young Cal, who clearly needed glasses and had a short attention span, can understand it and thoroughly invest herself into it; then anybody can!!!

From page 200, the whole book does a what the f*ck and turns so dramatic and fanfictiony, I LOVE IT.

If you can make it to the 200th page, I surely recommend it.

One of my all time favourite romances <3

Vanishing Girls Review

Image
Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver



This book was boring, I was falling asleep the entire time.

It had so much potential as a great thriller, but the characters and set up was one of the shittiest organisations I've ever read. Including high school creative writing pieces.

My friend has given this book to me, TWO times in a row on my bday, so if you want a copy, feel free to ask.

Dara was fucked up to the max.

Nick was such a weak girl, whom I do NOT admire.

The girls were so superficial and obnoxious, I couldn't stand it.

Breakfast at Tiffany's Review

Image
Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote


That was BEAUTIFUL!!!

I remember hating the movie so much, and I can see it's nothing like the book!

This had a lot more of a meaning behind it, rather than in the book it's very superficial.

Of course, this is still Breakfast at Tiffany's, and it still holds notions of superficiality (but more to it).

Holly was an extremely complex character that I would have loved to read more on. Sadly, it's only 100 pages.

I would gladly read this again :)

Wuthering Heights Review

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë


This was so beautiful!!!!!

So romantic, it touched my soul!

I tried to read this a few years ago but wasn't getting into it. I'm glad I saved it for when I'm older, I think I value it a lot more!

So so so so so beautiful, I will definitely read it again :)



Selection Novella Reviews

All by Kiera Cass.



As much as I hate Maxon's parents, this was very cute!





The Prince was certainly longer than The Guard, but tbh I find Maxon a total fuck boy so I wasn't falling for any of his romanticised events.



Nothing was revealed that I didn't already expect, I prefer The Prince a lot more.

Aspen is incredibly sweet, I wish boys like him really existed.

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6) Review

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6) by Richelle Mead



4/5 stars.

THIS IS THE PERFECT ENDING OMG.

I read through it in 1 sitting, I couldn't put it down!

I'm so sad that it's ended, so maybe I'll give Bloodlines a go? Because I love Sydney. And I heard Adrian is in them? and Adrian was my fave stand alone character throughout the entire series.

MY HEART BURST A MILLION TIMES WHILE READING THIS ENDING.

1. Rose and Dimitri. Um. Yes. I didn't think I could care so much, but I'm obsessed. Their ending was one of the best I've ever read that isn't a cliche HEA.
2. Lissa and Christian are always my #1 OTP in this series, and I was glad to see them act like such a married couple again, and reunited, in this ending of the series.

Favourite moments:
"'I don't belong to anyone. I make my own choices.'
'And you're with Adrian, said Dimitri.'
'But I was meant for you.'"
WOW WOW WOW

"I'd fulfilled my purpose, right? To protect?…

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) Review

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas


5/5 stars!!!!!!

I read this on the plane, about 26 hours ago. Forgive me if I've forgotten stuff, I'm overly jet lagged but felt the need to review ASAP.

I wanted to be really critical of this book bc it beat my fave of 2016 (and of all time): Lady Midnight. My baby. My love.

I'm gonna say it, for me, Lady Midnight still beats this series. Why?

It has more depth.

Don't get me wrong, I'm an ADDICT when it comes to weird mating stories on FanFiction.

But this isn't FanFiction.

This is a seriously published novel that's made it to the big leagues, from a prestigious author.

I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH AND IT'S SO MUCH BETTER THAN BORING TOG.

Main reasons why I love this series;
- easy to follow, unlike ToG
- hot sexy times that aren't the bad kind of creepy. Creepy like Delena chemistry from TVD. Mmmm SJM wrote some excellent sexy times. It was majorly awkward to read on the plane, but t…

P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Loved Before #2) by Jenny Han


4/5 stars.

I loved this book!!

I wasn't liking the break up/s, but it was essential for her maturity. I mentioned in the last one how much I disliked her immaturity.

Peter was even cuter than before.

I found it funny how this book, Jenny obviously tried to make it more believable that the story is set in the present.

such as:
- rip off Gossip Girl aka Anonybitch (couldn't stop laughing)
- Instagram
- Sex/nude scandals

Plus many more

I need more!!!!! I felt like this book was way too short... :(

Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) Review

Image
Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi



4/5 stars.

I once knew somebody who LOATHED this book. LOATHED.

BUT WHY???????

This book was aaaamaaazing!!!! I'm sure if you've just had a binge read of Divergent, THG, Delirium, and the Uglies, you'd be pretty damn sick of it, but I haven't read a dystopian romance in so long, it made me feel nostalgic!

This was brilliantly written, made complete sense, and had such important concepts.

"'I don't want you to touch me,' I lie.
'You don't have a choice.' He won't look at me.
'I always have a choice.'"

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT I CAN'T EMPHASISE THIS ENOUGH.

Seriously, read this book if you feel like you want to be immersed in your 2013 self, surrounded by the hype of YA dystopia. It was such a nice embrace.

Now back to my fantasy novels…

Looking for Alaska Review

Image
Looking for Alaska by John Green

4/5 stars.

What a beautiful story.

It wasn't what I expected from John Green (so many porn references what is this), but I certainly recognised aspects from his themes similar to Paper Towns.

Somebody spoiled the whole drama for me years ago so I didn't get to enjoY the suspense.

This book felt so authentic to teen angst. I felt every bit of emotion each of those kids was going through.

Beautiful story, I'll definitely need to buy it (borrowing rn).

I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1) Review

Image
I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1) by Pittacus Lore



2.5/5 stars.

It certainly wasn't like anything I've ever read-- except for Zeroes.

This was a fantastic read but I spaced out a lot. If I wasn't motivated to reach my reading goal, I would've gone into a slump.

However I may have not paid enough attention due to a party going on downstairs, as well as screaming children outside my door.

Switched (Trylle #1) Review

Image
Switched (Trylle #1) by Amanda Hocking

3/5 stars.

When I read the blurb, I honestly thought it'd be way worse than what I've now read.

However I'm not really interested in Trolls. It's a little too heavy on the side of high fantasy for me, sorry.

It was moderately well written, but I find that for most high fantasy reads.

I liked the protagonist's rational mind, she wasn't a cliche like almost EVERY OTHER YA FANTASY BOOK. She was actually skeptical and reluctant to abandon her old, mundane life. That was refreshing.

The Heir (The Selection #4) Review

Image
The Heir (The Selection #4) by Kiera Cass



4/5 stars.

THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST I'VE READ, besides the finale; The One, from the prev trilogy.

I must say, when I read on the first page how chill she was about becoming queen, I thought she'd be another bloody Mer.

But noooo, thankfully.

She has a lot more depth to her than her mother.

I SHIP HER AND BADEN SO MUCH.

As if we didn't get a resolution in the ending????? I thought this was a one off- spin off. There's actually ANOTHER one?????? Oh my lord.

I guess I'll have to read it… I'm dying to know who she ends up with.

Ps I don't like the spelling of Kile. MUST WE HAVE SUCH REDUNDANT SPELLINGS' OF NAMES??????

The Fill-In Boyfriend Review

The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West



4/5 stars.

This book was very sweet! I definitely shipped the main couple. It was a corny read, but I enjoyed every second of it!

The writing style was so comfortable for me to read in. This has introduced me to a new favourite author, I'm sure :)

The main protag was funny as heck, and I'd definitely suggest this to somebody who wants a quick contemporary read with a cute boy involved ;)

Will Grayson, Will Grayson (Will Grayson, Will Grayson) Review

Will Grayson, Will Grayson (Will Grayson, Will Grayson) by John Green and David Levithan



2/5 stars.

Things that were 5 stars:
- the gayness
- the humour

Things that I hated almost as much as The Abudance of Katherines' footnotes for that 'quirky' format:
- the random format of;

"me: [bla bla bla]
gideon: [reply]"

JUST....... WRITE... WITH "". PLEASE.

This wasn't my fave from Green NOR Levithan. And Levithan is my fave.

I'm disappointed I'm sorry.

But I do appreciate the gayness, that was funny as heck.

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1) by Jenny Han



3.75/5 stars.

OHMYGOSH THAT'S ALL?????

I wanna didn't know WHO I wasn't meant to ship her with. At times it was Conrad, other times Jeremiah, and then randomly Cam at the end. I'm still torn between the first two boys. Can is too new, he can leave.

I NEED THIS TO CONTINUE. I WANT MY ENDING.

This book was lovely to read, I enjoyed her going through the years. It reminded me of the flashbacks in We Were Liars.

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5) Reviews

Image
All are by SJM (obviously).



4/5 stars.

It still isn't something I'd read again; BUT THIS IS BACK AT THE VERY BEGINNING WHEN CEL WAS ACTUALLY BADASS AND NOT A DICK LIKE SHE IS CURRENTLY.

I loved it.

Kicking sexism in the butt like a pro assassin ;D



I found this instalment pointless, sorry. It had a sweet ending but I feel like nothing happened...



"For the first time in a long while, she heard the song of a northern wind, calling her home. And she was not afraid."

THIS ONE had some GREAT lines, and it had badass (although, cocky) Cel. That's what I like (not the cocky part, though).



THIS IS MY FAVE SO FAR!!!!!

We FINALLY see Sam and Cel being the cutest couple ever.

I like Sam significantly more than ANY of the new love interests (Dorian, Khaol, or bloody Rowan).

SJM pls write Sam in again.

He's my fave.



I read this on the plane and can't remember a single thing. That should say something.
