Breaking Dawn Book Review By Stephiane Meyer

This book is the fourth and final book in the Twilight Saga Series. It is amazing. I loved it so much that when I finished, I shut the book and turned back to the first page. It is so good, It follows Bella and Edward who are now married and going on their honeymoon. Everything is good, Bella finally gets to be with Edward, that way. They are madly in love, and enjoying life but then they find out Bella is pregnant.
At first, they are very confused because they were convinced vampires could not have children. They soon find out that it is not a normal child, it is a half-human half vampire. Two-thirds of the book is from Bella’s point of view and one-third is from Jacobs. It is actually in Jacob’s view when she gives birth. The baby survives but Bella is about to die from blood loss but Edward turns her into a vampire just in time.
When it goes back to Bella’s view she is transforming into a vampire, she is thrashing in pain but on the outside, she is still as a bone. When she wakes up, her throat is burning and she goes hunting with Edward and nearly kills three men but stops herself. She meets Renesmee and nearly kills Jacob because he imprinted on her newborn baby.
Reneesme is growing fast within four months it looks like she was two years old. A family friend comes to visit and sees Renesmee and thinks she is a vampire child which is illegal and goes to the Volturi. The Cullens are put to the death sentence so the third part of the book is them trying to find people to stand against the Volturi with them to protect the child who is now about ten years old.
This book is so good, it had me sucked in the whole book, I read it in one go and just kept reading. I loved this book so much. I give this book four stars for one reason, they kind of just end it, they don’t really say what happens to Bella, does she go to college, do they go to New Hampshire? What happens?

Anna, Lola, Isla Trilogy Book Review By Stephanie Perkins

51u1Hwc+YRL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Anna

Here is everything I know about France: Madeline and Amélie and Moulin Rouge. This is the first of Stephanie Perkins Anna and the French kiss. I really enjoyed this book. Is about this girl named Anna who goes to boarding school in Paris. Where she makes the dentist we had some kind hearted soul and Étienne St. Clair. Reminds me quite a bit of Augustus waters from the fault in our stars. Entire book Anna and Étienne become amazing friends and Anna falls head over heels in love with him. I loved about this book how realistic it was, I mean I’ve never been kissed but I don’t expect to be kissing a vampire or a werewolf. I like how there are awkward feelings between them. I love the fight they have in the library when Anna asked why did he go to Ellie’s and he says

“Because I was bloody breaking up with her!!”

How in the end they didn’t go to the same college because then they would fight and break up I love how Anna was finally fluent and she understood that conversation. And I really enjoyed this book and I really recommend it to anyone who enjoys romance.

Lola

I have three simple wishes. This is the first sentence in Lola and the Boy next door by Stephanie Perkins. This book is about a costume designer Lola, she is seventeen and her parents hate her 22-year-old boyfriend Max. Throughout the book Lola’s old crush 510DkEXfe2L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Cricket Bell moves back next door and turns her world upside down, everyone seems to realise she and cricket have feelings for each other except for them. They become really close friends, but Lola soon realises her feelings for Cricket never left. I really enjoyed this book and found it really entertaining. this is the second book in the Anna and the french kiss series, but you can read this one on it own.

 

 

 

Isla

This the first sentence in Isla and the Happily Ever after, the final novel in the Anna and the French Kiss series. This novel is actually based at the same time as Lola and the boy next door, about halfway through the book, Lola is watching TV with her bes5148autU8qL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_t friend Lindsey (don’t worry it’s not a spoiler) and she saw a guy on the TV, it is Anna friend and Etienne’s best friend from SOAP Josh. He features in the previous book Anna and the French Kiss, in this novel the main character Isla has had a crush on Josh her entire time at SOAP, and now that his friends are out of the school Josh and Isla become a lot closer. Throughout the book Josh and I go through ups and downs, but I won’t give anything away. I loved this book and it was a perfect way to end the series, through i would like to see what happens to Anna and Etienne. I LOVED this series, and it truly ends with a bang!

Queen Of Shadows Book Review

I am still in the after shock of finishing it, but I feel different than I have ever felt before about finishing a book. I am not immediately craving the next book,  its deeper than that, I need that next book. Okay lets talk about the book itself, in the last book we left off with Caelena or as she now has reclaimed her old identity as Aelin Galathynius and came back to Rifthold and starts the plot against the king and Dorian. Soon she is plotting a plan to kill the prince and king. I wonder how that is going to go down…. haha I already know!

-SPOILERS FROM HERE ON-

​I found the book title really confusing when I first started the book, but then they make reference to the title (Which made me so happy!) I really enjoyed the cover with Aelin standing there looking super bad ass with her sword and she is wearing her black suit that Arobynn gave her in The assassins sword (Book 0).

This story isn’t very specific, but the way they describe it I think it’s in a medieval like time. Especially the way they dress, because in Throne of Glass when Celaena is acting like Lillian (okay let me explain if you don’t remember; Aelin=Celeana=Lillian. Same person).

There are seven main characters, in Queen Of Shadows. There is Aelin, the main character; who is a total badass, she is queen of terrasen and she returns to Rifthold to free magic and kill Arobynn.

The next character is Rowan whom is Aelin’s carranium (which is a play on words for Mo anam cara which means Soul Mate in irish -_-!) He is so cool! He is described (By Aelin) and he has these super cool tattoos. I love Rowan and Aelin’s relationship and then THAT SCENE IN THE BEDROOM! I loved that scene when he’s thinking normally and then Aelin walks in wearing this sexy night gown and he’s like Holy sh**. It’s so funny, when he is so in love with Aelin he has to dump a bucket of water on himself. OMG THIS IS SO HARD WITHOUT EMOJIS.

Then there is Choal who was Celaena’s boyfriend before Aelin killed Celaena and became Aelin permanently. He was captain of the guard before the king put the collar on Dorian and became a ‘traitor’ to the kingdom, working towards freeing magic and freeing Dorian. At first he hates Aelin because of her magic (which is really hypercritical and sexist at first) because he is a guy and she is a girl. Then as he sees the Celaena he knew is still in Aelin they become friends sort of. Next there is Aedion who was captured by the king but Aelin goes all kickass and helps him escape! I felt really bad for him when he thought he was going to be able to give the blood oath and then he finds out that Rowan already gave it, my heart just broke. I also felt loved it so much at the end when Aedion goes into their room to tell Rowan something and Aelin and Rowan are making out; and Rowan doesn’t even have to look and he uses his wind powers to shut the door.

Next there is Dorian who was stuck in the valg body and couldn’t mourn the death of Sorscha, because he couldn’t remember her. That broke my heart. I love the ending; when Aelin and Dorian join hands and they killed the king. Then they were like the old world ends and the new one begins.

I think my favorite part in the book, is when Rowan returns and Aelin is playing cards and somehow she knows he is back?? She runs out into the alley and they hug and it is the most adorable thing ever!

In conclusion I loved this book. This is actually my second attempt of the review, but I’m pretty sure it’s over triple the length of before. I am so excited to see what the fifth book holds!

Junewrimo

June 3rd

I have started to add in my new scenes slowly that I’m writing and I just rewrote the ending to the book and will add it in sometime soon. I have about 10+ more scenes to write and that really good because when I took out one of the scenes my word count dropped from 86,000 to 79,000 😦 So I’m bringing that back up, and hopefully it will eventually surpass 86,000!

June 16th 

I have continued editing Primmian, and have moved onto Draft 7- I have brought Primmian back up to 80,725. I have finished outlining the sequel and I am hoping I can come up with a plot for book three but who knows. Right now I am creating character boards for each of my characters, and I highly suggest this because it has helped me find out a lot about my characters! I’ll update again when I have anything else to add!

June 28th

I am currently working on a contemporary novel I’ve been writing for the last six months- I haven’t completely outlined yet but I only write a few pages every now and then so it’s fine thus far. I’m sure when I get to the part I have yet to outline I’ll start pantsing and edit later- it is only the first draft 🙂 I’ve been focusing mainly on Primmian, and my extra Primmian binder which I created to help me stay orginized on the information on the world. I don’t know about other writers but personally I found it quite difficult to keep all the information straight- I also kept forgetting one of the side characters name, so I created a binder of all the information I needed (character profiles, character boards, etc..)

 

I hope you guys enjoyed this little Junerwrimo book update thing- It was an experiment and I think from now

A Court Of Mist And Fury By Sarah J. Maas

Hi, guys! Okay, so I know that my last post was a book review but I wantACOMAF-cover1ed to let you know that I LOVED THIS BOOK. Also yes I will put up ACOWAR book review I just don’t know when yet- my reading schedule for the summer is pretty hectic! I also wanted to mention it’s probably going to be purely book reviews this summer because I’m going away for two weeks and I have A LOT of books planned to read, so I’m going, to be honest with you guys, a lot of these are scheduled. I’ll have a post at the end of August on my favourite books of the summer and I’ll have a post up on my trip to Europe sometime in August.

Okay let’s get started: Maybe I’d always been broken and dark inside. This the first line in a court of mist and fury or as I like to refer to it as ACOMAF and to save my fingers from typing all those extra characters we’ll refer to it as ACOMAF. So let’s get started, shall we? At the beginning of the novel, it has jumped three months since Under The Mountain and Feyre is high fae in the midst of PTSD of the traumatic experience. She wakes up every night from nightmares and Tamlin is very absent in their relationship. Rhysand holds a bond on her that she has to visit him in the Night Court for one week every month for the rest of her immortal life. She is miserable in the Spring Court being coddled and babied and being stuck in the house all the time.

One day Tamlin gets pulled away and when she tries and follows but locks her up with a magical boundary around the house. Mor-Rhys’ cousin comes and saves her from the house and brings her to the Night Court. She joins his court and becomes an emissary to the human world.

Feyre and Rhys start training her powers; when she was reborn she got all the powers of the high lords of all the courts, she learns how to winnow and how to control water, and fire, with much more she hasn’t discovered yet. After they are forced to go to the Illyrian training camp Feyre and Rhys are walking in the woods when Lucian finds them. He tries to get Feyre to come with him but just as he tries to grab her sleeve she winnows away from him and back to Rhys and he says shocked

“Feyre what have you done to yourself?” This scene makes me laugh so much and it is a very cute Rhys and Feyre scene. They go to an inn and do some very adult stuff while it’s on my mind let’s talk about the content of this book It is very mature. This is not a YA book, this is very much a fantasy new adult novel but by the time the adult scenes came in ACOTAR I was hooked.

There is so much character and world building in this book. Feyre changes and grows so much as a person; in the beginning she is whiny and annoying but by the end she is kickass and someone you want as a best friend. Another thing I really enjoyed was the relationship between Feyre and Rhysand. Their bond is adorable with their notes and texting back and forth. I thought it was very selfless that he waited until she was in love with him back before telling her she was his mate. I also found her reaction a little confusing because she admitted to herself that she was in love with Rhysand but then when she found out he was her mate she was upset. Then there was that scene in the cabin with Rhys and Feyre when he explains his history of his life and then they go back to the camp and there is a funny scene between Rhys and Cassian. This happens because when the female accepts the males mating offer he becomes extremely territorial of said female and when Cassian said something suggestive to Feyre it made Rhys go crazy and they have a physical fight.

There are many settings throughout the entire book, it starts in the Spring Court with Feyre throwing her guts up every night. The next location is the Night Court and Velaris the secret city within the Night Court. Then there is in the summer court with Tarquin, and then back to Velaris. They are then forced to go to Illyrian training camp and finally the book ends with Rhys in the night court and Feyre in the Spring Court as a spy.

There are many characters in this book, there is Feyre who in the last book got turned into high fae and is now adjusting to life and her new powers. Next is Rhysand or Rhys if you may- he is high lord of the night court. Then there is Tamlin he isn’t in the book much but is mentioned. Then there is Mor Rhys’ cousin and third in command to Rhys’ inner circle, then there is Cassian is head of his army and finally there is Azriel his shadow master who goes to other courts and tells Rhys about them.

Movies I saw in June

Wonder Woman: (June 2nd)

9/15 (60%) This was a really good movie and I enjoyed it, but it was a classic superheroWW3 movie. There was action, intrigue, the main character is loveable and there is a handsome love interest. While I enjoyed it at times I found myself bored at times and have not that much interest. I gave it 4 stars purely because the special effects in this movie were so amazing that it kept me entertained. The acting was good, because well it’s Marvel when is it not?

 The Great Gilly Hopkins (June 3rd) 

14.5/15 (93%) This is a beautiful heart-wrenching film, following Gilly Hopkins

large_great_gilly_hopkins

who was played by Sophie Nelisse who had been in a foster home after foster home growing up and at the beginning of the film she is put in a foster home with a kind woman named Trotter and a little boy named W. E and the blind neighbour that comes over for dinner each night. The film shows the development of their relationships, in a way where you become attached to each and every character. Sophie Nélisse is an incredible actress for her age, I really enjoyed the book thief too, so I know now I will probably watch anything she is in.

Me Before You (June 3rd) 

10/15 (67%) I really enjoyed Me Before You- I watched it with my little brother andMV5BMTQ2NjE4NDE2NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTcwNDE5NzE@._V1_UY1200_CR90,0,630,1200_AL_ I think he enjoyed it too, though he won’t admit that to me. I was watching this for the second time, and funny enough I saw it for the first time on June 3rd, 2016! I love Emelia Clarke- it seems in each of these movies I have one actor that I’ve seen a bunch of their movies, and Daenerys is one of my favourite characters on Game Of Thrones so that works out well!

Bay Watch (June 16th)

(14/15 93%) I love Zac Efron. He is hands down one of my favourite actors, and next to high school musical I think this was one of his greatest films yet. He and Dwayne JohnsoMV5BNTA4MjQ0ODQzNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzA5NjYzMjI@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_n were hilarious together, and I just loved this movie. There was not a moment in the entire movie where I was not laughing and I honestly thought at one point I might be sick. This is so far is not just my favourite movie of the month but probably of the year too.

You get me 

(7/15 47%) This is the closest thing I’ve ever seen to a horror movie. I don’t watch

you_get_me-307432551-largehorror- but I think this was technically qualified as a thriller. It’s about a guy named Tyler who hooks up with this girl named Holly who ends up becoming obsessed with Tyler and transfers to his school. It’s a whole mess honestly. Honestly, most of the people in this movie were bad people- the only person who I actually rooted for was Ali- Tyler’s girlfriend.

I watched a total of six movies this month- I honestly hope I don’t watch anymore this month because the post is getting quite long. I mainly enjoyed them but two of them were rewatched from previous years so they were a guaranteed enjoyment. Personally, I think I’m going to stick to reviewing books from now on because this was a little harder to do, and I’ll let the people who are good at it. It was a nice experiment but I’m okay 🙂

 

My Lady Jane Book Review by- Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

You may think you know the story. This is the first line in My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. I really enjoyed this book, I finished it in three days and I actually only finished it about 45 minutes ago.

I was honestly surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did because of a) it’s a historical fiction and b) it’s Owlcrate (nothing against Owlcrate but I just haven’t enjoyed all the books they sent but I love everything else about it. The setting was in 16th century England and it was a Henry the Eighth retelling. I didn’t realise this at first until they mentioned Edward, and it all clicked into place. We had studied these people in seventh-grade history class. I had always found King Henry interesting because back in that time it was illegal to get divorced, but then I remembered none of his wives divorced him, they all died of a beheading, childbirth, or some other horrific death except his last wife who outlived him.

there were several main characters in this novel the first one who the book is named after Jane Grey. She is just a normal lady and by lady, I mean lady as in cousin of the King. All she wants to do is read and be left alone. The next character is Gifford but he prefers to be called G because he hates his name. Gifford is a horse. Well not actually a horse he is an edian which is a person that can shift from human into an animal but he can’t control his shifts so during the day he is a horse and at night he is a man. He is soon being forced into a wedding he wanted no part of and that there is no way out of, even in his horse form. The next character is King Edward, who is sixteen and of this day: dying. He has to quickly reconsider who is next in line seeing as he doesn’t have any children/heirs.

From there the plot is in motion, action, drama, and best of all comedy ensues from there. I really enjoyed this book, I was entranced in their world, fell in love with each character, and at one point was actually screaming at the book, as if the characters on the page could hear me. Which annoyed the people sitting beside me also trying to read. (I am a very vocal reader, one of the best parts of having a teddy bear, no judgement)

In conclusion, I highly suggest this book to anyone who can get their hands on it. Trust me it’s worth it. If the inside jacket doesn’t pull you in let the first paragraph, no the first line. Just read this book, please I’m begging you.
