Few thoughts about "Justice Buried" by Hilary Thompson
Justice Buried (Starbright) - Hilary Thompson

I had high expectations with this book, however I was very disappointed. It was like every other young adult book these days: love triangle, angsty teenagers, two people who would change the world (of course they are in their teens), etc. Sometimes I can look past that, but also it was absolutely boring and looked like nothing happened through out all book.
The only unique thing was, that this book was based on belief in zodiacs and their influence to people life.
Am I going to read another book in this series ? Maybe...

Legend Audible by Marie Lu
Legend - Marie Lu

Author: Marie Lu

Narrator: Mariel Stern (as June) , Steven Kaplan (as Day)

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Edition: Audio CD, Unabridged Retail Edition

Published: November 29th 2011

 

 

OMG, why am I always late to these fandoms ??!!

 

« Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything's possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.»

 

WHY HAVEN’T I READ THIS BOOK EARLIER??!! (Listening to this, is waay much better)

Day’s voice while flirting or having that devil may care attitude is…. Gaah No appropriate words (looked up the narrator, and he’s about 50-60 yrs old O.o better not describing it) *blush*

 

Anyway this book is amazing, like it had such an epic concept, oh my I’m still on withdrawal I need to listen to the next now (already started it).

 

This is a dystopian trilogy set on this futuristic world where America is divided into two the Republic of America (supposedly the good guys) and the colonies (which are the rebellious guys and supposedly bad). And it’s told from a dual point of view : Day the most wanted criminal in America and June the prodigy, she is being groomed for success in the Republic's highest circles. 

 

Now, when I started listening to this book I didn’t read the synopsis, I just knew the general idea above.

And I guess I should have, so I wouldn’t be affected on Matias's death. OMG that killed me.

I wasn’t even 10% in the book and I already started aching and crying like a baby.

 

The narration and writing was soo good that I couldn’t help but get unvested in the story.

This book would make such an incredible movie; it’s perfect, not too long and visually exciting.

 

The none stop action; break out scenes, leaps, stunts, the whole book is exciting.

And not only that, but it had the most strong, intelligent, logical main characters. I’m looking forward to prodigy, and what it has in store for me. *EXCITED*

Review: The Forsaken
The Forsaken - Lisa M. Stasse

Not anywhere near as good as The Hunger Games and the ending was a bit too happily ever after, with lots of love and feelings floating around for my taste but other wise not bad.

The main character was a bit iffy, but the rest where pretty great. Even the depraved insane's one's where well written.

 

The Island was great and somewhat original - the suffering, frozen section, the way the drones behaved and the wall, was i believe unique and really interesting. The rest was pretty much a take off from 4 or 5 different books that i have read in the past, which isnt always a bad thing when its done so well it out shines the original, unfortunately that was not the case in this instance. So i cant give this book more than 3 stars, it was good and i did enjoy it, but it wasnt great. plus Alenna had the worst habit of repeating herself, making promises and breaking them and worst of all INSTA-LOVE. I fucking hate insta-love.

Especially between teenagers, being an official adult these days and having studied a bit on teenagers insane emotions, i think the reason i hate it so is because while at the time it can be fierce and incredibly strong their emotions also tend to be fleeting, and while they have this epic strong love now, give it a few years, even a year or two and their unlikely to still be just as in-love. typically when one goes from an action packed life threatening life style to a chillaxed one - of course this isnt always the case and my last example apply's to adults as well. this just seems to be the common out come.

anyways i think i've gotten a bit off track, lol.

 

Will i be reading the next book?

Probably not, I've read many better versions of this book, but hey you never know.

 

Who would i recommend to?

Young teenagers new to this genre, whom have yet to read 'The hunger games, Divergent, Outpost or Legend' series.

 

 

Love the cover though.

Unravel Me - Tahereh Mafi

This is actually a reaction review.

You could see my transition of emotions through-out the series. Catface.

It may contain spoilers. It's a freaking reaction review, what do you expect?

 

My first thought on this book: Ah, the strike-throughs are slowly diminishing. I remember back in Shatter Me, I would compare them to each other and see if there's a match. So I could be saying, "Oh that is totally computerized or something."

 

One thing I could say about this is Warner, I don't hate you anymore. Starting when you showed her your gift and made a crater with your hands. Now through-out the waiting for the publication for the 3rd installment, I could proudly wave my fist in Team Warner.

The puppy encounter in Destroy Me was in Unravel me and that part, I was so hooked. Couldn't take my mind off of it. Juliette's reaction towards her new light on Warner. That was cute. And him telling her his real name? That's even cute-r! (And the reason why some of the supplies are suddenly missing was a cool realization, that I can tell).

 

Hah! But that Chapter 62, though! Super smileyface.

 

But I was sad at the first part. I could feel Adam slowly drifting away from Juliette, who should stop crying about a lot of things. I mean, come on wake up and smell the cheese! People are cautious around you because you're so closed. I mean, yeah I get it, it's hard to break down your walls since you've been building them ever since your life started. I can't help feeling this way, it's ridiculous, I know! Hahah! But I am loving her progress of opening up to people.

 

And Kenji! My man! You are seriously on my favorite people list! You are epic. Mind-blowing. Cool and awesome.That performance, that act, that witty charm that you have. I may be more in love with you than Warner!

He appears that he knows nothing but flip the switch on that. I knew he would be one of the badass characters in the future. I just knew it. It's quite a sad back story when he learned about his powers.

 

Really.. That chapter. Hahah! One of the best chapters I have ever read!

 

"I want this up. I want this down."

 

BAM! I am practically fanning myself. The book was almost on fire and my hands are suffering from a second-degree burn.

 

He hits me with surprise yet again!

 

This book is a new change of pace for me. I am treasuring every encounters on this one. Very much.

 

Part 4 of this reaction review is Fracture Me.
