New baby! (Taken with Instagram)
Title: Across The Universe (Across The Universe #1)
Author: Beth Revis
Rating: 3/5 cups of coffee
MINOR SPOILER ALERT!!!
Beware, this is not a love story. As you can see in the book cover. Now, I’d justified the saying “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” This book is science fiction with a twist of suspense. This book is mysterious. And not to mention, this book is full of frexing LIES! By the way, frex/frexing was a word used in the book as f*ck/f*cking. So the author used frex/frexing instead of those foul words. You will know why when you read it yourself.
The story was slow at first but then it became mysterious at the middle part. I hate science, so I don’t get used to some science term in this book. I can’t fully understand some things. At first, I want to mark this book as unfinished-books because of those science terminologies but then I decided why shouldn’t I give it a try? Then it goes well. I get hooked at the near end part.
This book is full of lies. I shouldn’t be surprised because at the cover of the book it says What does it take to survive aboard a spaceship fueled by lies. There you go, lies.
And oh, the love story thing. Well it’s not really a love story like with too much kissing and cuddling and stuffs. Nothing like that tho. Yes, it’s disappointing. I love love stories but maybe it’s a good thing because sometimes too much kissing annoys me.
Well, this books annoys me in some part because of their Season thingy where some of the people of the spaceship Godspeed mates in public. Eww!
This is the first sci-fi novel that I’ve read, maybe that’s why I don’t get used to it at first. So now I know how sci-fi novels works for me. I learned a lot from this book. I will definitely read the second book. :)
Any thoughts about this book guys? :)
The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer, #1) by Jenny Han
My Rating: 5/5 cups of coffee
I can’t believe I’d finished this book in just 4 hours? I was just curious what will happened to Belly at the end of the book because usually the most exciting part was at the end but then this book don’t really give me what I’ve been looking for in a chick-lit books like this but it gave me more than I could ask for. Because whenever I read chick-lit books usually it always has the sweetest love story ever. But this book won’t give you that, it will make you want for more. Belly didn’t actually what she wanted but at the end which is the cliff-hanger part, I think she did but I don’t know. And that’s what the book does to me. It makes me beg for more.
I don’t usually finished a book overnight but this book make me read it in just 4 hours. Well that means I will definitely read the second book of this chick-lit trilogy. Ha-ha!
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
My Rating: 3/5 cups of coffee
All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart.
I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane. I’m not insane.
I gave this book 3 stars because. First, I’m annoyed with some of the characters. And second, it’s not really a dystopian book but romance which is annoying especially the
mouth-eating kissing part. But I’m not against love story but I expect more from this book like action, government, and twist. I know this book has a lot of good reviews but my review is not bad at all. Actually, I hate and love this book. I hate it because whenever Juliette speaks she always broke her sentence, she’s always interrupted by the other characters which is somewhat annoying. Juliette cannot finish her words because the other character talks too much. I also hate this book because it’s so predictable, I don’t know maybe I read something like this before but I cannot recall what. And I love it because of the love but not the kissing parts, I know Juliette is longing for a touch but I think its too much and its like she wanted to kiss eat Adam. And I also love the Juliette for being observant and being honest to herself, she knows where to put herself because everybody knows she’s different. She’s a goodhearted person. She did not boast about her magical power gift.
Overall, You will love and hate this book but somewhat it’s magical. Well their love is magical. I need mo twist and action in the second book please? To those who love this book so much, please don’t hate me. :)
Demonglass (Hex Hall, #2) by Rachel Hawkins
My Rating: 4/5 cups of coffee
I can’t breathe, again.
Hmm, how do I start it? Hmm.
Okay. Where did the excitement from the first book go? The first book was a page turner then the second book was… What?! It’s good but it’s not amazing just like the first book which is Hex Hall, the characters are the same and everything but I don’t know maybe it’s kinda slow, for me I guess. And the ending, ohmy! What kind of ending is that? HAHAHA! Well, I gave it 4 stars anyway because I love Sophie and Archer. I mean their love story, it’s cute actually. They love each other differently. I will definitely read the third book. I’m inlove with this series. I wish the third book was beautiful as the first one.
Illusions (Wings #3) by Aprilynne Pike
My Rating: 4/5 cups of coffee
“But love is something that has to be as selfish as it is unselfish. You can’t make yourself love someone because you feel like you should. Just wanting to love someone isn’t enough.”
This was the third book of the Wings series. I think this book is not so good like the first 2 books. I mean this book was great but it’s lacking of excitement and adventures. Maybe I just expect more from this book but I got disappointed, not really but maybe a little. The good thing about this book is the Love Triangle of Laurel, Tamani and David and that was exciting. I really can’t guess who will be Laurel’s choice, is it Tamani or David? But she loves them both but differently. I like David despite of his bad boy image when it comes to Tamani and I like Tamani more because he’s very protective to Laurel and he really loves Laurel whatever happens.
I get annoyed to Chelsea in this book because she’s still in love with David. Is that what you called a friend? Anyway good thing Laurel understands and she didn’t think of Chelsea differently because of what she’s going to do after the winter dance, which is breaking up with Ryan because David is sad. Ugh! And Oh oh! Tamani got an iPhone. Lololololol! That’s what I like about this book, faeries using iPhone. Oh, I forgot Yuki, the shy type unordinary girl and not to mention that she is a Winter Faerie. Oh my golly gushy gushy gosh!
Well anyway at the end it was full of surprises and a damn cliff-hanger, so damn cliff-hanger. Overall, I like it but not like the first 2 books, just for the sake of the series. But I’m still in love with the characters and the story, this book just has it flaws but its fine, I’m still reading the last book, Destined. I’m just waiting for the paperback edition. I’m not into hardcovers. Lol~
I went to the bookstore today and bought Demonglass (Hex Hall, #2) by Rachel Hawkins, I badly wanted to read it. Then just now I decided that I should take care of my babies (books), so I covered them with plastic cover. Now they looked like brand new. TA-DA! I need to read more because my summer vacation will be over soon. 1 week to go then I will be more busy than ever but I just want to read and read and read and read and also drink coffee and read again. Ugh!~
