I like either zombies, vampires, aliens, or murderers

2) Which scene from any book would be your ultimate nightmare to have been part of?

The Hunger Games. I would just die.

3) If you could visit and explore any one scary or evil setting which would you pick and why?

I hate scary stuff because I always get scared but maybe... actually I haven't read anything that scary so no answer. But for a TV Show, I would pick Walking Dead because of the walkers or American Horror Story.

The Order of the Darkness Series

Sebastian from Mortal Instruments. No why.

To avoid spoilers... that person in City of Ashes.... you know

Luke from TMI

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey Review

Publication Date: May 7, 2013
Publisher: Putnam
Juvenile
Format: Hardcover
Page Count: 457 pages
Source: Bought
Series: The 5th Wave #1


Synopsis:

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.


Review:

I went in with really high hopes and now I just don't know how I feel about this book anymore.

I guess the biggest problem for me was the switching point of views. It got really confusing and irritating. It wasn't until the point of view switched, it started getting boring.

I feel like I'm the only one who didn't like it. Most people actually loved it and that's why I went it with a high expectation. Plus this was over hyped book with positive reviews. 

The characters where intriguing but the main character Cassie was unbearable for me because she really irritated me.

This isn't my favorite sci-fi / dystopian book with aliens and I don't know what to say because honestly this wasn't my kind of book. 


Rating:

Major Book Slump (Update #6)

I'm gonna make this really quick.

I know I haven't posted since a long time and I PROMISE I will be reviewing again soon! I am really busy keeping up my GPA and there's so many tests and exams coming up.

Last month, I received so many advance readers copy from HarperTeen and I will be reading soon again and hopefully I'll have a review next week.

Autumn Rose by Abigail Gibbs Cover Reveal


Amazon  | Barnes & Noble  | IndieBound  | Books-A-Million  | iBookstore 


In book two of her breathtakingly magical series, Abigail Gibbs draws us even further into the dangerous and romantic world of the Dark Heroines.  

Autumn Rose lives in a sleepy seaside town in the southwest of England, but buried deep under the surface of her quiet life are dark secrets. Her grandmother is dead, murdered eighteen months before, and the whirling social scene of London in which she was brought up is a world away. Even worse, at her new school she is shunned and condemned-all because of the swirling marks on her skin that prevent her from blending in the crowd.  

But the appearance of a handsome young man at her school-who has the same curious markings as Autumn Rose-sends her world into turmoil. Suddenly the marks are cool and Autumn is thrust into the limelight, but her sudden popularity brings danger as her secrets threaten to come to light. Plus, there is the fact that Autumn keeps dreaming of a human girl who is about to be seduced by a very dark Prince… and Autumn must figure out how to save her before it is too late.  



Abigail Gibbs was born and raised in deepest, darkest Devon, England. She is studying for a B.A. in English at the University of Oxford and considers herself a professional student, as the real world has yet to catch up with her. Her greatest fear is blood and she is a great advocate of vegetarianism, which logically led to the writing of her first novel, Dinner with a Vampire. She splits her time between her studies, stories, and family, and uses coffee to survive all thre
