I cannot believe February is over already. At the beginning of the month, I had too much energy for blogging, maybe that's why halfway through the month, the energy sort of fizzled out. And now, its the end of the month already, and I only have half-written drafts, which I have no motivation to complete. Anywhoo, I have finally found the motivation to write a wrap-up post. 😀 FEBRUARY- A month of mostly Crime/Mystery/Thrillers.
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...
Read 'The Girl on the Train', they said. It's gonna be the next 'Gone Girl', they said... Well, that did not happen. I hate to say it, but I did not love it. It was not bad, but not good either. The main thing I disliked about the book was the narration. It’s a damn book, I need to know what is happening exactly to have a clear picture in my head. Reading it from Rachel’s point of view was confusing at best.
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah over at Biconic Book Worm. The topic is pretty self- explanatory. So, if you want to join in on it, check out the topics for January at January 2018 topics. The top 5 books on my 2018 bucket list are *drumroll...* 5. Every Move by Ellie Marney
Since the last book ended on quite a cliffhanger, I was extremely motivated to read this book. It was very hard for me to accept that the link between Jared and Kami was broken. Imagine how hard it must have been for the characters themselves to accept that. Usually, I hate it when love triangle dramas and romance takes over the precedence of the book but this book is sorcery. I was somehow, more hooked on it because of all that. I loved it. It has humor, it has sass, it made me want to get inside the book and knock some sense into Jared. I felt like the story was being dragged a bit. Rob and his evil team threatened Kami and gave some kind of a deadline for battle. Kami and her team begin preparing for the said battle with Lillian with occasional fights in between. And, the anticipated “battle” was very underwhelming. Still, for a middle book, the drag was expected. The characters and the writing were what me going most of the time.
I only have good things to say about this book. The writing is beautiful with total creepy mysterious vibes and witty characters. It had me laughing aloud at times. The concept of Jared and Kami hearing each other’s voice is explained brilliantly. I thought it would be all rainbows and unicorns but there were storms and rain. Kami and Jared have been talking to each other since they were born, literally. So, it would be natural that they would be each other’s best friend or support system. I know it would have been a total cliché if they had automatically started going out after meeting each other in real life. Which, it did not happen, but God, I wished it had. They are soooo meant to be together, but both of them are so afraid of messing it all up because their “connection” is the most valuable thing to both of them. She tries her best to run away from the possibility of their being together. Jared too is confused and afraid.
What kind of a title is “Trust me, I’m lying”, right? After reading the book, it makes perfect sense. Characters: Julep our protagonist is a 16-year-old grifter. Grifters are professional con artists. She has been learning all the tricks of the trade from her father. Nobody really knows what they do because if they did, they would not really be pros, right? She is the perfect sassy protagonist with con artist skills, what else do you need? It was really fun to get inside her mind. I kind of wish we could be friends. Sam is the dorky nerd guy in the friend-zone. He reminded me very much of Simon from ‘The Mortal Instruments’. It is so clear that he likes Julep, like are you really that blind, Julep? Tyler is the new guy with all the charms.
I have read all of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes books, watched BBC’s Sherlock and am currently watching Elementary for no other reason than that it is about Sherlock. Also, a movie with Tony Stark no wait, … Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock. So, it’s pretty safe to say I love Sherlock in general. And by love I mean borderline obsessed with. So, I come across this book and I was like where have you been my entire life??? As soon as I read the part about the description about Mycroft’s hair I was so freaking sure I would love this book. This was exactly the shit I was craving for. All the descriptions and feels and everything. I am not even sure I can give an accurate review of this book. I was just so happy and excited about reading this. Fangirling all over the place.
