Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

In Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.


Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.


Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.


Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.


For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories? Open her heart to someone? Or will she just go on living inside somebody else’s fiction?






I saw this book everywhere and hearing good things so I finally decided to pick it up. And I was not disappointed. It was also a bit different than I thought it be. I thought it would be more about her and the fandom of Simon Snow and it is to a point but mainly about Cath and her new life in college. Or trying to navigate through college and trying new to her things.

I love the relationship Cath has with her family , I love even more that the family is far from perfect. We have mom that left when they were little, some mental health issues with dad and then there are Cath and Wren with their own set of issues… I like how things are handled and how each of them deals in their way as well.

Obviously I loved the close relationship Cath has with Wren, but things start out very rocky for them and they have to work through some stuff. I really enjoyed all her relationships and people she met. Good and bad because that helped her grow and see things differently. Reagan, man I loved her. Yeah she was a bitch but she was a nice bitch and in the end looked out for Cath. I really enjoyed her.

Levi. Not much to say about him other than that I absolutely loved him and must say he had a lot more patience than I ever would when it came to Cath. I loved how they relationship devolved slowly and how natural it felt. The ups and downs and everything in between.

Cath, herself, I really enjoyed her and her nerdiness … most of the time. It was easy to relate to her and feel for her as she struggled and tried to find new ways. Other times she got on my nerves a bit when she was more stubborn than scared to come out of her comfort zone, really the whole English paper thing drove me nuts and I wanted to smack her.

But overall I really enjoyed her. She and Levi made me laugh and swoon a lot throughout the book.

Now is where I probably lose a lot of people, but unlike most I didn’t care much for the fan fiction within the book. I didn’t not like it, I liked it, I just didn’t love it.

I listen to the audiobook and the narration was awesome.

I rate this book 4 ★

Review: Vision in Silver (The Others #3) by Anne Bishop
Vision in Silver - Anne Bishop

The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before; both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.


Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.


For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep…





Where to start with this book? There was so much going on and we get a lot of new information not only about the blood prophets but also about the Terra Indigine and the HFL movement. There are also a lot of things happening with our humans or human pack as Simon calls them.  A big change is happening to Monty of the officers working with the court and it was great to see the court helping the humans. But really they were helping out a few humans in this book and you could see that change is coming when it comes to the humans. But only with certain humans, other are still only clever meat for the most part and after reading some of the stuff I can only agree.

Most everyone is trying to help the blood prophets , helping them cope living outside the compound or really just living in some cases. We learn some new things about them and their life before they have been freed. The search is also on for something to help them other than cutting.

Meg, in this book, was kind of getting on my nerves for some reason; everything seemed too hyped up all the sudden. I mean she was watching movies and would get new images through that, you would think that would have caused some freak-outs but I guess movies don’t count for getting new images for her.  Anyway, she came over a bit annoying in some parts of the book, but overall I still liked her and her willingness to learn and cope. Though she had some pretty dumb moments.  Also, OMG …. I relaise that her and Simon will maybe never have a  traditional romance but  please can they already tell each other how they feel and go from there on . It’s getting old.

Simon didn’t change much from the last book he still brooding. He is also really trying to work with the humans they know and help but also has a struggle with that. He too could start fessing up and telling her how he feels and start figuring it out how to go from there.

Tess, we get to see a lot more of her powers and I love that, I hope we meet more if her kind but I have a feeling not all are as friendly as her.

We get a lot more of Nathan this book which I loved, he is becoming one of my favorite characters in the books and I look forward to part with him. Let hope Bishop will not spoil the fun and hurt him seriously.

I still really enjoy the ponies, Sam and now Skippy. They really are refreshing in this mostly pretty dark world.  

I love the human pack and how they more and more become a part of the courtyard. Except Dr. Lorenzo, I still don’t like or trust him.

I also look forward o learning more about the people on the island, now with some blood prophets as well.

Overall I still loved the book a lot just not as much as the last couple books, mainly because of Meg but I hope that will change next book.

I rate it 4 ★

Review: The Norse Chronicles by Karissa Laurel
The Norse Chronicles - Karissa Laurel

This is a must read for every fan of Norse mythology fan. Even if you have not read or seen much Norse mythology you will love these books. This urban fantast trilogy is the perfect mix of modern world with accident gods roaming this world among us.

 Follow Solina as she discovers she is part of a world she never thought was real and as she learns so much she never even thought of. She uncovers secrets she was never meant to know, which puts her in danger and on the run. During her journey she meets some new people but quickly learns that she can’t trust everybody and people will betray her to stop her from finding out too much.

All three books are jammed packed with action, laughter, sass and just the right amount of romance and they will keep you on the edge of your seat with some pretty big and awesome plot twists.

Overall, I highly enjoyed all three books and can only recommend them. I rate it 4 ½-5 ★

Review: Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices #2) by Cassandra Clare
Lord of Shadows - Cassandra Clare

Would you trade your soul mate for your soul?


A Shadowhunter’s life is bound by duty. Constrained by honor. The word of a Shadowhunter is a solemn pledge, and no vow is more sacred than the vow that binds parabatai, warrior partners—sworn to fight together, die together, but never to fall in love.


Emma Carstairs has learned that the love she shares with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, isn’t just forbidden—it could destroy them both. She knows she should run from Julian. But how can she when the Blackthorns are threatened by enemies on all sides?


Their only hope is the Black Volume of the Dead, a spell book of terrible power. Everyone wants it. Only the Blackthorns can find it. Spurred on by a dark bargain with the Seelie Queen, Emma; her best friend, Cristina; and Mark and Julian Blackthorn journey into the Courts of Faerie, where glittering revels hide bloody danger and no promise can be trusted. Meanwhile, rising tension between Shadowhunters and Downworlders has produced the Cohort, an extremist group of Shadowhunters dedicated to registering Downworlders and “unsuitable” Nephilim. They’ll do anything in their power to expose Julian’s secrets and take the Los Angeles Institute for their own.


When Downworlders turn against the Clave, a new threat rises in the form of the Lord of Shadows—the Unseelie King, who sends his greatest warriors to slaughter those with Blackthorn blood and seize the Black Volume. As dangers close in, Julian devises a risky scheme that depends on the cooperation of an unpredictable enemy. But success may come with a price he and Emma cannot even imagine, one that will bring with it a reckoning of blood that could have repercussions for everyone and everything they hold dear.





If you have not read the first book , this review may spoil some things for you. I suggest you go read it because it is awesome and come back after.

Okay it has been three or more weeks since I finished the book and I’, still not over it. I’m still so very emotional about  this book, I also not sure how much I can say without spoiling it so I will try to make it short but really all I can say is that I  loved this book way too much. Even now , weeks later and I had time to think about it, if anything I just love it even more.


This books start shortly where we left off in book one. And things are a little awkward between Julian and Emma.  But even worse between Julian and Mark, as they continue their struggle to … I guess understand each other. Overall this book in general is less about the relationship between Julian and Emma  but about the giant sh&tstorm they are about to face that was set in monition last book.

Not to give away anything to new readers I will just say that this book was epic. I laughed, I cried, I swooned and I wept. The ending was not only a major shock but also really heartbreaking, I can’t remember the last time a book shook me like that.

I love how Cassandra Clare always has diversity with characters. This series we get someone with Autism and it written great and I really enjoyed that part.  Another thing was that we get a closer look at how the Clave thinks about mundane medicine.

In this book we learn a lot more about the fae, their role and plan in all of this. It is also hinted that there is something going on with the warlocks and I wonder if that has to do with anything that happed in last book with the death of a certain warlock. I cannot wait to find out what really is going on and how it all is related. But really that goes with a lot of things in this series. Like Emma’s sword, there is something with it and I can figure out what it is but I know it will hgave to do with something that will solve a lot of problems… I think… and hope.

“Lady Midnight”  as mentioned in the epilogue of last book plays a big part in this book and it will keep you on your toes.

Now a little about some of the characters. Of course we get to see some people form the other book which I loved and Alex and Magnus have actually a decent amount of page time, which I also enjoyed very much. Of course we have Emma and Julian, who both struggle with the “curse of the parabatai” but each in their own way. We get a little more history about both families.

I think all characters had great arc and development but I think both Kit and Mark made the most progress. I adored Kit and his journey on how he is taking it all in. Of course I love the friendship / relationship he has with Ty and Livvy..
Mark who I didn’t fully last book I now adore as he trying to find a great middle ground between the fae and shadowworld.

We also get more of Kieran and him, this book I was not a fan of. No real reason just didn’t like him much.
Christina was awesome in this book, I really want her as my friend, Speaking of the three, there is something going on between the three of them (Mark, Kieran and Cristina) but not really sure yet what and to what extent.

We learn Diana’s secret  which was awesome and again showed us how much the Clave can suck sometimes.

I said we learn more about the fae, that includes the wild hunt and of course Gwyn, who I aslo just loved and couldn’t get enough off.

I think that is all without spoiling too much and there is so much more going on that I’m sure I missed something or someone.

Overall I cannot say how much I loved this book, even with all the turmoil and roller coaster ride of emotions. Also while some is pretty dark we still get plenty of humor .

I rate it full 5★ again .


Some of my favorite quotes:


“Lex malla, lex nulla,” said Julian with a regretful wave of his hand. It was the Blackthorn family motto: A bad law is no law.

“I wonder what other family mottoes are,” Emma mused. “Do you know any?”

“The Lightwood family motto is ‘We mean well.’ ”

“Very funny.”

Julian looked over at her. “No, really, it actually is.”

“Seriously? So what’s the Herondale family motto? ‘Chiseled but angsty’?”

He shrugged. ‘If you don’t know what your last name is, it’s probably Herondale’?”

Emma burst out laughing. “What about Carstairs?” she asked, tapping Cortana. “ ‘We have a sword’? ‘Blunt instruments are for losers’?”

“Morgenstern,” offered Julian. “ ‘When in doubt, start a war’?”


“Sometimes the most ruthless heart speaks the most truth”


“Fiction is truth, even if it is not fact. If you believe only in facts and forget stories, your brain will live, but your heart will die.”


“Magnus Bane. The Ultimate Traitor.


Not my favorite nickname. I prefer, "Our Lord and Master" or maybe "Unambiguously the Hottest.”


“Zara: It's just a registry...

Kit: Am I the only one who's read X-Men and realizes why this is a bad idea?”
