Gods and Monsters: Mythbreaker
Mythbreaker (Gods and Monsters Book 2) - Stephen Blackmoore

*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Fitz has stolen money from his drug dealing boss. Fitz is also what is called a 'Chronicler', someone with the gift of hearing the voices of gods, something he's always put down to hallucinations. He learns that he the only Chronicler left and as such a hot commodity within the 'god' community. He's on the run being aided by the god of the internet in an effort to stop the ultimate bad guy gaining control of him and therefore humanity.

Urban fantasy that was a lot of fun, lots of black humour and the mythology interwoven into the plot was done well, keeping me engaged in the story in moments when the action was lighter.
Recommended.

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

Hey everyone and how's it going? Fantastic most likely, because that is how I feel at that moment yay!!! So, as you can tell by the title, it is another review. I'm sure you're all going why?!, but I did warn you all! Today, I am reviewing "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell. I got a lot to say so Allons-y!

 

  Books Blurb:

 

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

 

Okay, everybody is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath it's something more. Fandom is life. It's what got her and her sister, Wren, through losing their mom. It's what kept them close.

 

And now that she's starting college, introverted Cath isn't sure what's supposed to get her through. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fanfiction 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?

 

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

 

 

I thought that this book was really amazing! It too paid homage of being a fangirl/boy. It had some really good and funny moments. Like when Cath and Wren had before heading to school. Cath is worried about having a creepy roommate who stays up all night to take pics of her while she slept! The adorableness of Cath and Levi that took time, Levi himself is a gentleman and always has a smile on his face. A funny reaction that Cath's roommate Reagan had, when she found out that Cath was a twin, which creeped her the hell out. 

 

There were times of complete annoyance and anger that got to me when it came to Wren and her roommate Courtney. That needed a common sense shoe to come out of nowhere and hit them...hahaha! Cath also needed to get hit by that shoe as well a lot of time!  A scare and sad time when it came to the girls' dad, who has suffered a lot since his wife and the girls' mom ran off. This book represents some if not all of us who are such huge fans of something, rather it be Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Supernatural, anything really. That all we want to do is live and breathe our fandom and keep going, even if it's long done and some fans have moved on. It also, represents to some some real stuff that is written like dealing this anxiety and depression. 

 

It doesn't matter how old we all are, we all have something that we are such huge fans of and would go at nothing but to create magic for us and those who are still on the train. We should all celebrate our inner and outer Geek! Not let others tell you that you're too old to be apart of your fandoms. But, to also remember to live your life outside of your fandom as well!

 

Well, that is it from me. I will be back on Thursday with a new review! Until then be awesome and do awesome!

 

LATER DAYS!

Overflowing Chamber Pots: "Wake Up Successful: How to Increase Your Energy & Achieve Any Goal With A Morning Routine" by S. J. Scott
Wake Up Successful: How to Increase Your Energy & Achieve Any Goal With A Morning Routine - S.J. Scott


(original review, 2014)


But for early rising, I would not have been able to achieve all the work I put in for years. I also missed the traffic, allowing me to move at great speed to my destination. But for late starts recently, I would not have gotten enough rest. And but for a mix, my life would not have changed. From late to early, early to late, we change our perspectives, clocks and everything about who and what we are. Sleeping late is not for much other than redolence and milder temper.

 

 

If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review.
