Martin WOW. JUST. WOW. SERIOUSLY. THIS IS THE BEST FANTASY SERIES EVER. Since I learned that the events of A Feast For Crows and A Dance with Dragons were actually simultaneous, I decided to read both consecutivel, and thank God I did. A Dance… tagged: favorites A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin I intentionally waited for summer vacation to begin before reading A Feast for Crows because I wanted to really absorb everything without worrying about schoolwork and stuff. I made the right decision because although it took me a consid… tagged: favorites Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi This book is unbelievable. I rarely immediately write a review for a book I just finished, but Ignite Me was just such a wonderful, fast-paced read that I feel the need to jot down my thoughts at once. First off, Unravel Me and the novel… tagged: favorites Let it Snow by John Green This is such a perfect read for the holidays! I had never really read a book with three separate (sort of ) stories before, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. But from the very first page of the very first short story entitled The J… tagged: favorites Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë I was surprised to see that although Wuthering Heights was claimed to be mostly a love story, the romantic portion seemed to be just the underlying aspect of the novel. The love story between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff is quite … tagged: favorites The Revenge of Seven by Pittacus Lore I’ve been a loyal reader of The Lorien Legacies for a long time now, and from the day it was released, I’ve been really excited to read The Revenge of Seven. Witnessing the separation of the Garde and Five’s act of betrayal in The Fall o… tagged: favorites The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan BEST BOOK EVER. BEST SERIES EVER. I’ve been a huge fan of Rick Riordan’s books since the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and I’m quite pleased to have finally read the final book of The Heroes of Olympus series after such a long … tagged: favorites Forever by Maggie Stiefvater I had been fascinated with The Wolves of Mercy Falls from the time I read Shiver. The werewolf lore was given quite the unusual twist in Maggie Stiefvater’s books, and it had a genuine love story that wasn’t too sickly sweet, unlike most… tagged: favorites Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell I’m a HUGE Rainbow Rowell fan and I’d wanted to read Fangirl for such a long time, but I wanted to wait for a time when I wasn’t busy with other things to do so. I managed to get a really lovely hard bound copy sometime ago, and I finall… tagged: favorites Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom I’ve been taking an education course for the past four years now, and I’ve always felt that everyone has read Tuesdays with Morrie but me. So, I felt that it was time to read this book who, everyone claims to be such a gem. And indeed it… tagged: favorites Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn I had originally refrained from reading this book because I didn’t feel like buying it out of its relative thinness. However, I got hold of an eBook version, and I wanted a quick read to have in between schoolwork and stuff. I must say t… tagged: favorites The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider After reading The Beginning of Everything, I just sat there in front of my desk, lovingly caressing the novel’s beautiful cover. Yeah, I will admit that one of the reasons why I bought this book in the first place is because of the cheer… tagged: favorites Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare You know that mixed feeling when you finish a book, and you’re happy that you finished it, but you’re also kinda sad that you had to finish it? Well, that’s how I’m feeling now. Although The Mortal Instruments stretched longer than The I… tagged: favorites Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare I finished The Mortal Instruments series about a month ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I read the first book of The Infernal Devices, Clockwork Angel, some time ago, and since I needed a distraction from everything in my life, I decided… tagged: favorites The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman The only Neil Gaiman book I ever read was Stardust, and I wasn’t too impressed by it, possibly because I had watched the film adaptation first. However, I thought it was time to give this renowned author’s work another go. I was actually… tagged: favorites The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey I recently got wind of some news that The 5th Wave was getting its own film adaptation, so I thought it was finally time to get around to reading it. The 5th Wave was described to be a dystopian novel, so I thought it would be a familiar… tagged: favorites A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini I cannot fully express how much I feel for A Thousand Splendid Suns. First off, the title is beautiful. But as beautiful as it is, the story is what really gives its value. Everything was just so SAD and HEARTBREAKING. I extremely admire… tagged: favorites City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS SERIES IS OVER. I’m both extremely happy and seemingly experiencing an incredible loss at this time. I’ve grown so attached to the Shadowhunter world, and honestly I could not have thought of a better conclusion fo… tagged: favorites City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare I am so addicted to this awesome series! I think City of Lost Souls really brought things in perspective since City of Fallen Angels. It’s a bit longer than its predecessors, but I went through it so quickly because of so much excitement… tagged: favorites City of Glass by Cassandra Clare I know there’s about 3 more books in this series I’ve yet to read, but I think it’s safe to say that this is my favorite of the whole series! At first, I felt that the plot was going kinda slowly, but afterward I just couldn’t stop readi… tagged: favorites The Scorch Trials by James Dashner I absolutely loved The Maze Runner after reading it some time ago, and despite my worries that its sequel wouldn’t quite match the first book’s awesomeness, I now realize that my worries were utterly ridiculous. Much like its predecessor… tagged: favorites Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead I’m not entirely sure I’m emotionally prepared to write this review, but here it goes. In reading a series that has gone on for so long as Vampire Academy has, there’s always that lingering worry that the last installment’s going to mess… tagged: favorites Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead Being the fifth book in the long-running Vampire Academy series, one would think Spirit Bound would lose some of the commendable characteristics its predecessors possessed. However, that was definitely not the case. If anything, Spirit B… tagged: favorites Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead I’m happy to say that I am finally halfway through with the Vampire Academy Series, and that I truly enjoyed reading Shadow Kiss, the third novel in the series. As expected, the third installment is every bit as interesting as its predec… tagged: favorites Frostbite by Richelle Mead It’s reading books like these that make me feel thankful that I have emotions, yet at the same time wish I didn’t have them. I read Vampire Academy a year ago and absolutely fell in love with it. The vampire lore was taken to a whole new… tagged: favorites The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein BEAUTIFUL. I’ve been seeing The Art of Racing in the Rain in bookstores for as long as I can remember, and it sat on my bookshelf unread for awhile after I got a copy. Now I am extremely pleased that I finally got around to reading it be… tagged: favorites A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin I was happy to have finally gotten around to reading the third book in the fantastical A Song of Ice and Fire series. It took me longer to finish than if I had read a different book, since all the books in the series are incredibly thick… tagged: favorites Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick YES. THIS IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. From falling in love with Hush, Hush, to being slightly disappointed with Crescendo, to getting back on track with Silence, I am very much pleased to say that I loved the conclusion of the Hush Hush S… tagged: favorites Attachments by Rainbow Rowell After reading the disturbing-in-a-good-way Stephen King novel entitled The Shining, I needed a quick, fun read to get me back on track. And I have to say, Attachments gave me just that, and possibly more. Thank God for Rainbow Rowell! I… tagged: favorites Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver I AM SO BLOWN AWAY. I loved Delirium when I read it last year. The concept was brilliant; a dystopian world where love is believed to be a disease. The ending was a total cliffhanger, so I was happy to have finally gotten around to rea… tagged: favorites Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav I’ve always had a thing for poetry, even though I get that it’s not a literary genre that everyone is comfortable with. However, I think that anyone, even someone who absolutely does not appreciate poetry, will have to appreciate Lang Le… tagged: favorites Dracula by Bram Stoker I’ve always been a huge fan of vampire lore, mostly because of my father’s influence, and I thought it was time I read about the “Original Vampire”. I have to say that if you plan on reading a classic, Dracula will not disappoint. The la… tagged: favorites The House of Hades by Rick Riordan Rick Riordan has yet again created a literary masterpiece that can make you laugh out loud and burst into tears at the same time. The Mark of Athena left readers with a huge cliffhanger, and I have to say The House of Hades did not disap… tagged: favorites Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead I actually enjoyed this one! Vampire Academy put a really interesting twist to the vampire lore. I know a lot of people have become tired of fiction revolving around vampires after the Twilight craze, but this one’s totally different. I … tagged: favorites
