OH MY GOD
Shadow Kiss - Richelle Mead

I have just finished the 3rd book in Richelle Mead's series "The Vampire Academy". I loved this book so much...

 

Too many things happened all at once and I loved every moment. I loved Rose and Dimitri so much. I can't believe what happened which I won't say due to spoilers for other people that want to read this book but know that it will tear you apart inside. 

 

Richelle Mead is amazing and her writing style is so easy to follow which is why I'm loving this series so much. I very excited to read her other series Blood Lines which I'm pretty sure involves Lisa still. 

 

Lisa and Christian are so cute together by the way. 

 

Ralf sounded like an asshole btw.

REVIEW YAY

So today's review is on the book The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. Yes I know that I'm way behind the program when it comes to reviews, but I have only just joined this website and want to write reviews for books that I have currently already read, no matter how long ago I read the book. 

 

So this book I generally enjoyed, more so than Green's other books. I do like his other work but I just like the humour in this book more than the others. ANYWAY.

 

Hazel Grace Lancaster (Sorry but I'm horrible at spelling names so I'm sorry if it is wrong, do correct me if needed!) meets a cute boy named Augustus Waters at this support group and they fall madly in love. 

 

During their time of falling in love, they Hazel turns Augustus into a major fan man over this book she also really likes. To be honest I do this with other,I make people read the books I really like and cried over just so I can watch them cry as well. Is that weird? BACK TO THE REVIEW.

 

Augustus finds out that his cancer is worse and has to get treated again. Doesn't tell Hazel straight away. When he passes Hazel is so heart broken. She finally had someone and that person was taken away by cancer. I really like Augustus so this death did sting a little. 

 

So this book is written beautifully. I really like John Green's writing style but other people don't. But hey you can't impress everyone. 

 

OVERALL A GOOD BOOK!

So I was on my break at work today, I saw that I had money from after putting money away and decided it was a good idea to buy myself a hot chocolate and two new books. Why did I do that... Who knows but the books were pretty cool as well...

Why I love Science Fiction and Fantasy books

Well, I'll jump in on the booklikes "Why I love"  round:

Once upon a time, a child's moving neighbor asked if they wanted any books before donated elsewhere.  Duh.  I was an avid reader of whatever variety of stuff found in school library, borrowed from friends and sporadic yard sales.  These boxes included authors like Lester Del Rey, Andre Norton, Robert A. Heinlein, Alan Dean Foster, Mercedes Lackey, Andrew J. Offutt, John Wyndham, Ron Goulart, J.R.R. Tolkien, Anne McCaffrey ... devoured, never looked back and have been hooked ever since by these greats of SF/Fantasy.

 

If it can start with "what if," "In a faraway," or "Once Upon a Time," count me in!

 

Oh, the possibilities.  The potential worldbuilding.  The "what if ..."  The potential "other," diversity or alien-ness for characters.  Societies and sociological switch-ups.  The exploration of furthest reaches of space, science and imagination.  The huge tapestry in which an author can create.  Escapism for me, please, but with a logic inherent to whatever the author has imagined.  Take me along for the ride and for a brief moment let me live in the world you made with your stories and your characters instead of mine,

 

Moon of Mutiny - Lester del Rey The Stars are Ours - Andre Norton,James J. Campanella,Uvula Audio Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert A. Heinlein  Arrows of the Queen - Mercedes Lackey  

 

Web Of The Spider - Andrew J. Offutt,Richard K. Lyon  The Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham  The Panchronicon Plot - Ron Goulart  The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien  

 

Yes, those few unwanted boxes launched nearly 50 years of book love.  No genre beats the scope and elements of an excellent SF/Fantasy book.

 

Squee!  I'm a dancing fan poodle unable to write a good post about it.

Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion for Book Lovers
Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion fo... Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion for Book Lovers - Sally Allen My Review:
I'm going to have to get this book in paperback now that I have read it in ebook. This is the type of book that I need to be able to scribble in the margins! This would be a fabulous book to use for a book club for book lovers. It would make a wonderful reading list for such a book club!

I haven't read all the books in the book, but I've read at least one in each category, and usually more. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's comments and quotes on books. Not that I agreed with everything she said about every book, but that's why I think it would be so great for a book club. This book was written to start discussions and arguments about books! It's meant to get people engaged about books. And it certainly added to my reading list!

And absolute jewel of a book! Makes me want to get to know the author and be her next best friend! Sit in a shadey garden with a pot of tea and discuss books all day long!

This book was provided to me by Griffins Wharf and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions are fully my own.
