Look at me, finally posting my wrap up. I don't know why it's taking me so freaking long, it's not like I have tons of books to talk about. But 5 are not that bad, I'm actually super happy about it, especially since they all got a really good raiting from me, and were seriously soooo good. I'm still mad about me, for not finishing Romeo and Julie yet. I hate this play since highschool, I never read it there, and I have so many problems with it, still, even when it's in Manga format and way easier to read. I just don't like the story. Here we go, now I put a freaking mini review in this wrap up LOL

Always Never Yours!!!
Always Never Yours - Austin Siegemund-Broka,Emily Wibberley

I'm just such a big fan of Emily Wibberley's The Last Oracle series, that I had to read her newest book, even though the genre was the complete opposite and she had a co author for this one.

 

And I loved it. I truly loved this book and Megan's story.

 

Summary: Megan Harper is the girl before. All her exes find their one true love right after dating her. It’s not a curse or anything, it’s just the way things are, and Megan refuses to waste time feeling sorry for herself. Instead, she focuses on pursuing her next fling, directing theatre, and fulfilling her dream school’s acting requirement in the smallest role possible.

But her plans quickly crumble when she’s cast as none other than Juliet–yes, that Juliet–in her high school’s production. It’s a nightmare. No–a disaster. Megan’s not an actress and she’s certainly not a Juliet. Then she meets Owen Okita, an aspiring playwright who agrees to help Megan catch the eye of a sexy stagehand in exchange for help writing his new script.

Between rehearsals and contending with her divided family, Megan begins to notice Owen–thoughtful, unconventional, and utterly unlike her exes, and wonders: shouldn’t a girl get to play the lead in her own love story?

 

 

I loved Megan the main character. Most of the times, when it comes to contemporary, you always have the main character who is supposed to be that perfect little butterfly. Megan wasn't. And I loved that. It also made me love her even more. She was flawed, she made mistakes. But she grew. She seriously grew so much throughout the whole book.
We also had some really great side characters that I absolutely loved. Anthony, who is one of Megan's best friends. And Madeleine, her other best friend. And of course Owen. Owen, be still my heart. He was amazing and wonderful and just overall very dreamy.

 

I loved the relationships in this book. The friendships. Megan and Anthony. Megan and Madeleine. They also weren't perfect. They had quite some flaws. But I loved that. I loved to see characters in friendships that weren't perfect but that were worth fighting for.
The same goes for the family dynamics. Megan's family, with her parents being divorced, Megan living with her father and his pregnant wife and her little sister. Her mother living in a different state, having also a new man in her life. The struggles Megan had with that, with feeling out of place and feeling like she doesn't belong. And how all of this just grew throughout the story, how it developed. I loved it.
Romantic realionships. We had quite a few of those. I hated them all, except for Megan and Owen. And Anthony and Eric. I had all the feels about these idiots, who were so perfect for each other but had a tough time actually getting together.

 

The setting of this story was also amazing. It wasn't just centered around Highschool students, but there was also the theatre element, them working on a play and all the struggles with that.

 

Overall, I loved it. I loved the characters, the setting, the writing!!!

Favorite book(s) of the month: Sidelined, Out of Play, Ein ganzes halbes Jahr, Divined (duh)

 

Books started this month but haven't finished yet: Stopping the Noise in Your Head (it's just not a book that I want to read constantly), The 100, True Born

 

7 BOOKS!!! I'm actually really happy with that. I'm also really proud of myself for finally kicking myself to let go of Scintillate. Even though my laptop helped me. It just vanished from my epub reader and I wasn't going to download it again. So yeah. I can't take all the credit. It's not that the book is bad, the writing is really good, I just couldn't stand the characters and the way the story was going.

Divined!!!
Divined (The Last Oracle Book 3) - Emily Wibberley

Thanks so much to Emily for sending this my way and letting me read it.
The book came out yesterday and I can't urge you enough to check out this book series. All three books are out now and they are amazing. Especially if you are new to ya fantasy, this series is an amazing start.

 

It's not humanly possible to actually explain how much I love these books, the characters, the story and the writing. It's not possible.

 

I won't go into much detail about this book, cause it's the third and last book in the series and I don't wont to give anything away.

 

It's been a while since I have read the second book in the series but it didn't take me long to get back into the story and back into the world of Oracles and Deitys. The writing was amazing as always. Especially the fighting scenes, I love how Emily writes them and makes me visualize exactly what's going on.

 

We see many side characters from the first two books again. I just love Ashira and Ixie. I loved having Tirza being in this book again. And Zarae, she is one of those characters that I should hate. Ahhh, she makes so many questionable things but I just love her. I can't help myself. Derick, for me he is always just there. I don't love him, I don't hate him. He's just there.

 

And we got a few new characters that I absolutely loved. Ealis, I loved him the moment he showed up (and was hoping very much that he wouldn't betray my trust). There was just something about him that I really liked and he grew on me more and more throughout the book. Also Atzi, I was ready to hate her the moment she appeared cause I didn't trust her at all. And I was so worried she would come between Ixie and Clio/Ashira. But then she actually helped Clio and she just really grew on me to the point were I was very nervous that something could happen to her.

 

Storywise, I won't say anything about this. I loved it. It was actionpacked and amazing. So many things very happening. It didn't feel rushed but there was also never a dull moment. So for me it was perfect.

 

The ending. I won't spoil it. BUT I LOVED IT SO MUCH!!!!! Especially the end end. You know. The very end. The last few pages. THAT END, was especially beautiful to me.

 

I can't wait to reread the whole series again, that's how much I love everything about this series.
