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.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
My Rating: 5/5 cups of coffee
“It takes a graveyard to raise a child.”
This book is amazing. The characters and the story itself was amazing.
Can you imagine having a ghost parents, a guardian and friends? And also living in a creepy graveyard? Well for Nobody Owens also known as Bod, it’s normal to have a ghost parents. But Silas his guardian did all the job in raising him well. Silas bring him food and answer every question he asked. Bod has the Freedom of Graveyard, he’s free to wander around and that gives me goosebumps. The story is creepy but interesting.
While reading this book I feel like I’m trapped in a place like a graveyard. Because Bod can’t go outside to the living world. That’s what his guardian Silas said.
He studied inside the graveyard. The graveyard is the place where he learned his first A B C, reading the name of the dead in a stone and writing it in a piece of paper. That’s how he met Scarlett, a girl who wandered around the graveyard and saw him writing his alphabet on a piece of paper.
Miss Lupescu, he teach Bod how to Fade, to Fear and how to Dream walked. It helps him a lot when he went to school but ended fast because he make a scene with two bully student. So Silas told him to stop going to that school and stay in the graveyard where he’s safe from any harm.
I thought this book has no love story but there is. Unfortunately, it does not have a happily ever after like the others. After their encounter with the Jack of all trades who killed Bod’s family, Silas make Scarlett forget what happened in the graveyard. That’s how their love story end.
When Bod reached fifteen, his guardian let him live in the living world. He says that Bod needs to live. So Bod went out of the graveyard saying goodbye to his graveyard friends, family and his guardian Silas. And it makes me sad. It’s just, I love the way that the ghost took care of him and raised him well. It’s kinda creepy I know. But it’s a wonderful journey of his life, not just seeing dead people but playing with them, talking to them and they took care of him.
Overall, I love the book. I hope Neil Gaiman write a sequel to this book on how Bod catch up in the living world. I know this is some kind of a children book but I love it. The fantasy that this book has brought me is priceless.
Guess ,what book is this? Lol~
I enjoy reading this! I’ll finish this now. Maybe another one hour then read a few chapters of a new to-read book.

“You couldn’t escape death: It would get us all in the end.”
Well I guess, another favorite book! This book has a lot of twists! It’s so unpredictable and it will capture your senses. It’s a page turner. I can’t even put it down. The book got my attention in the very beginning. Knowing she’s a fucked up girl with no parents but with a foster mother Karen and twin foster brother. There is nothing special about Jem but she can see the date of death of a person when she look it on the eye. I think its similar to a animemovie called The Death Note but not with the killing part but seeing others date of death.
I think the character of Jem is not so really nice. Because she demands a lot and she’s mean. I don’t like her attitude but I like her.
When it comes to the other characters like Spider. Jem said he stinks, he doesn’t even care to take a bath. That’s disgusting. And I don’t like him even he love Jem so much. I don’t like smelly people but it’s in reality.
When it comes to the book itself. At the beginning, I can’t understand the other words that is being used. Maybe because the way it was written. Well I think it’s some kind of British. Also the language they’re using, the expressions and the author is from England. I don’t protest on that but you can identify it from the way the book was written.
Overall, it’s a very good book. I love the setting especially the twist. I love it! I will surely read the next book because this book is a damn cliff-hanger. Another cliff-hanger! :D
New baby! It just arrived to the Philippines last Friday!

“I can’t just storm in and proclaim my intentions. I can’t ‘steal’ you away. I just have to wait and hope that, someday, you’ll ask.”
“And if I don’t?” Laurel said, her voice barley above a whisper.
“Then I guess I’ll wait forever.”
This book made me miss my boyfriend. David is such a sweet boyfriend and Tamani was a great protector. I love these two fictional characters! I’m inlove again, I guess.
But sometimes it makes me wonder if David has feelings with Chelsea because he cared a lot when Chelsea was kidnapped. Maybe they’re just really a good friend. It makes me think because Chelsea had a huge crush on David before Lauren arrived in Crescent City.
Well, the book has a great ending. Another cliff hanger because there is a sneak peek of Illusions at the end of the book. And I read it that Tamani is in their school. Oh God! I can’t wait to read the 3rd book. But I haven’t got a copy yet but soon. Really really soon.
Overall, I’d enjoyed the book. Especially the love triangle between David, Lauren and Tamani. But sometimes I can’t absorb all the faerie thing. I get confused sometimes. Anyway, its for the sake of Lauren being a faerie. I hope she did not forget Tamani after all he has done to her over the years. I love this book so much.
