Trilogy Review: Red Rising

The Red Rising trilogy has everything one would want in a science fiction book and more. The epic world-building, the eccentric character arcs, and the emotional dilemmas of a flawed protagonist make it an intense read. It is set in a futuristic world where the entire solar system has been colonized and run by a color-coded society, achieved by genetic and surgical manipulation of humans. There are fourteen levels of the color-coded caste hierarchy; Golds are the most elite, ruling over the rest of the humanity and Reds are at the lowest level, forced to do menial work. The protagonist, Darrow, is a Red whose mission is to infiltrate the ranks of the Golds to destroy them from within. Continue reading Trilogy Review: Red Rising

The Good and The Bad of 2018

Top 10 Tuesday: The Good and The Bad of 2018

Finally, I decided to do another TTT. This one is hosted at thatartsyreadergirl. 

Check out her prompts, if you guys want to join in.

For this week the topic was supposed to be THE BEST BOOKS I READ IN 2018 (SO FAR!) But, so far I’ve only read 25 books. And if I count down the 10 best books, that will be 40% of my entire reading pool. That would be very inaccurate, so I figured I’d make a 5 Good and 5 Bad books I read in 2018.

So starting with The Good: Continue reading Top 10 Tuesday: The Good and The Bad of 2018

A Court of Thrones and Roses

I usually prefer waiting until all the books in the series are out so that I can binge read the entire series. However, with this book, the HYPE was strong with this one. So there I was three books out in the series and ready to be left in a cliffhanger at the end.

If there is one thing I learned from this book its that Saraj J. Mass can write dramatic scenes with very dramatic sentences.

It’s like you can almost feel her dropping the mike after she ends a dramatic scene. Continue reading A Court of Thrones and Roses

Audiobooks and Stuff I do while Listening to Them

I have only just started listening to audiobooks. I thought it would not be the same experience as reading a book. But, audiobooks have been gaining popularity and thought I ought to give them a try.

After listening to two books, I feel like they are an excellent way to read books and they really save my time. But, I don’t think I can listen to a high fantasy book or books with complicated timelines in audio form. It might be too confusing. But for contemporary and light fantasy/ paranormal books, I think audiobooks might do just as well as physical books.

However, we miss some awesome maps and glorious illustrations in audiobook. 

I have made a list of things I like doing while listening to audiobooks: Continue reading Audiobooks and Stuff I do while Listening to Them

top 5 cover buys

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Cover Buys

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah over at Biconic Bookworm. She is truly awesome! you’ve probably known about her, but if you haven’t check out her blog!! Also, to join in on Top 5 Tuesday, the topics for February are over here.

I consider myself to be more of an instant author buyer; I am going to read anything from an author that I like. (Some of the said authors are Cassandra Clare, Jefferey Deaver, Jennifer. L. Armentrout).

However, I am also definitely guilty of buying books based on their cover. I know, we should never judge by only its cover, but sometimes the cover is just too awesome and sparkly and stuff and they are just shouting to be read and picked up.

*look at me I’m so pretty! Of course, I am awesome!* Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Cover Buys

unmade: Book Review

Book Review: Unmade, The Lynburn Legacy#3

Yes, this is just as amazing as the first two books and I ate it all up.

I am so glad I got to read this series one after another, not having to wait for the next book in the series is a blessing. 😀 I don’t think I could have handled all the cliffhangers in both the preceding books.

I feel like I’ve already talked so much about the characters in this series on Untold and Unspoken. And I was so afraid that some of them were not going to make it out alive or unscathed out of this series.

The entire series is just waiting for a final epic battle between Rob and Kami’s forces, which did happen here, but the actual battle was not of a huge magnitude. 

However, each character had a fight of their own and this book had a lot of those. This book just made me feel for them. OH! feelings… Continue reading Book Review: Unmade, The Lynburn Legacy#3

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Intimidating Books

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah, over at Biconic Book Worm. If you want to join in on it check out the topics for January at Topics for  January 2018 topics.

Today, we are counting down top 5 Intimidating books. Almost all the books on my list are books that I have heard great things about. And I personally can’t seem to get myself read them.

The reasons why they are intimidating are:

I am afraid I won’t like it or
I will like them too much and won’t know what to do with myself after
The Size of the book
The number of books in the series
Too much hype.
