Blood Of A Thousand Stars- Rhoda Belleza


Thank you for hanging out with us today! We hope that you enjoyed your visit. We now leave you with our review and hope you add this title to your tbr!

“I don’t like any version of my past, not even the imaginary ones.”

Empress of a Thousand Skies left us with our heart in our throats and many unanswered questions. None of us were sure what to do with our lives after being crushed with an ending like that. Then this beauty shows up on my doorstep and the world rights itself and I get sick. But the universe didn’t stop me from tearing through this wild ride.

This one started off with my heart racing as I remembered the ending of the first book. I needed to know what was going on and I needed to know now!

I felt myself being torn with some of the parts in this book. It would pick up just a bit and drop down like a plane in turbulence. But as I neared halfway through the book, it got to where I lost sleep and couldn’t put it down. It was so worth it in the end.

The ending of this book is worth the wait and it makes these books so much more enjoyable. It was exciting to see the growth of not only the characters in this book but Rhoda’s writing style. It was mesmerizing.

I hated to see this one come to a close but I’m excited to see where Rhoda takes us next.

Always remember….. Honor. Bravery. Loyalty.

Chasing helicity by ginger zee

Ahh another ginger zee book that was on tap for me. When was able to get this arc I was jumping and down like crazy reason being is when I’m not reading one of my other passions is weather and have had that passion since a young age. So when you see this book you think tornado and weather plus in the title is helicity which means to spin. Which it def is. And this book is about 13 year old helicity who is about to thru a major change. Where at start of the book helicity is frustrated with her family since helicity in high school wants to get into honors classes but her parents don’t so she gets frustrated and takes her horse for a ride. Along the ride she starts to see a storm go up and watches it till suddenly see’s the storm getting violent. As she rushes home a tornado forms and thru her eyes watches as her town gets destroyed. Rest of the book picks where her town is leveled and suffering slightly what most victims go thru with ptsd and see’s how her life’s changed. All this was amazingly displayed and loved it as weather nerd and storm chasers. After this though book goes down hill. I’m going go do *spoilers now* I usually don’t but I need to get it out their and just preying its the arc and just not finished. But after town is destroyed. Her dad is blaming helicity for her star studded football player getting hurt. But after the hospital he is home complaining of pain takes meds doctor gave. Then it seems not a week later or 2 he is out of pills and dad gets more and sayes that the brother gets guilty look when helicity looks at him or thoughts but doesn’t think much more. I get it’s middle grade and saw the hints what brother was doing but doesn’t go into details. Another thing that happens is later bring a crush for helicity. He is 17 year old guy has the excitement for weather and young and immature like a lot of young storm chasers but way he acts it has sooo many vibes of some famous chaser or chasers, one I know ginger zee dated. Aka reed timmer. Who was on the show storm chasers on discovery channel. The guy in this book still seems cool but then later wants the photo so bad that helicity took of the tornado and he later sells it and gives most of money to helicity. She is mad that he did it with no thought to ask. And ginger trying to show that helicity doing stuff just for love of weather and not sell and the guy gets absolutely no repercussion from it at all. Forgot to add with the brother is at one point helicity hanging with brother and goes pick something up and is with brother and sayes gets up again and brother is looking odd. Later on the trip she is missing some money from her purse. Again this hints at things but then just left open ended. Last very last part of the book she is able to go on a storm chase with a meterlogist/ storm chaser and her guy crush. And it’s been raining hard in city their in for days. The guy and helicity find a time where with out asking takes the car to chase a storm and the kid is driving aggressive and fast and just being dangerous with helicity wanting to get out. Well he puts it through a flood. He gets hurt but she doesn’t. But as she is being rescued by emergency and stuff. Out comes to rescue as well is her chaser friend the meterlogist. Well let’s say one survives while other doesn’t “technically she does but in coma” but it’s left next page after that like I’m helicity I made bad decisions but I’m a survivor. 1 as a middle grade book I feel that might discourage people to not like weather or want to read books. And 2 I felt would of flowed better for storm chase she had actually gotten her tornado in a field that’s it and show she over came tornado fear while still taking the beauty of Mother Nature…. sorry I’m just so annoyed at all the things left open that are touched on then not.

3/5 stars this book could of been higher and loved it but so many flaws.

~~~~JUSTIN 3/5 stars

Darker by E.L. James

Ahh yes that’s right it’s another fifty shades book ;). 50/50 split for people a lot are saying nooooo my eyes. Take example my friend jennifer and her doggie blogger Bella from a Bella faerie tale she will be like my eyes noooo!! While I’m here yes yes yes. But going in I waited 2.5 years for this book that’s a life time in book years atleast though not GOT author who takes almost 5-10 years. But this is book 2 from christians pov. The first book left a tad later than Anastasia’s pov which I find oddly interesting. One thing going for book one was big gaps between Anastasia and Christians so was like reading a whole new book, unlike where I will say not going into much detail it is his pov for second but but to the extreme sounded like reading book 2 over again like i was Anastasia than Christian. Also like most shade books the writing is not very good but gotta love it for what it is I think if still are reading you knew this already. But some of the things I still loved is when Christian is not with Ana can see what he does he compassionate, besides so demanding. But get to see the scenes that we didn’t froms Ana’s like the fight with mrs Lincoln at christians party to Leila. But yea over all 4/5 stars since I can’t get enough but hoping last book isn’t 3 years away like book 1 to 2 was.

4/5 stars ~~~~ JUSTIN

Waiting on Wednesday late night edition 

So it’s Wednesday again so for the 3 w’s which are what are you currently reading? 

What did you recently finish?

And what do you think you’ll read next. 

1. What I’m currently reading is the devil wears Prada. I’m doing this since I love the movie and found the book for a dollar I’m hoping it’s just as good as the movie. 

2. What I recently finished is all of vampire academy which was 6 books in a week or week and a half.

3. What I plan to read next is? I’m very bad at this but after TDWP I plan to start bloodlines and that series.


Books I plan to try and read in November.

The books I’ll try to read which I’m bad about following. On my personal quest to 100 books I’m at 84 now so 2 months shouldn’t be to hard. 

1. I just literally 3 mins ago before making my new cup of java finished vampire academy it had been years to say I actually had truely read the series so I’m glad I did and every book is a 5 star ⭐️ 

2. Just today bought at the thrift store which I forget if tried to read before or not is the devil wears Prada and about to hop into that after this post and to say the movie oh dear do I love the movie so much it’s like confessions of a shopaholic. That book and movie I like the movie better. 

3. Artemis by Andy weir

Can’t wait to read that book since surprising I really enjoyed the mars book which Iv completely stomped on the name but look forward to that.

After these I have no clue what I’ll read but maybe the darkest minds??? Comeback to find out. 

~~~~~ JUSTIN 

October read list

The month isn’t over and may get 1 more book done but I’d figured I’d go over what I read. Which over the period so far have read 9 books. May get to 10 before Wednesday 

1.the law of tall girls

Started off the month on contemporary since I had to review for an author. And the book was good i enjoyed it and different since main story for her is she is super tall so hard things for her.

2.renagades by Marissa Meyer

Once you saw that MM was coming out with a new series it’s like a 😲 moment!!! So I was glad to have read it and was good and good super hero book. And Adrian will be a huge fictional bf for many. 

3.the school for sidekicks

This book out of many I read for the month was proubly the worst reason why was it had a good plot but the thing going for it was the whole time could never truely figure out who is counted as a good guy/ bad guy minus his mash pot group of friends so it bugged me.

4. Rosemarked

Another Book thru the month I was not fond of yea part of its story is good with trying to figure a cure for rosemarked but just parts sooo truely bugged me but I’ll come again to read book 2. 

5-9 vampire academy series. 

I re started this series since it’s my absolute fav and I haven’t read it in years. So currently still binging thru the series but if never have read this series I highly 1000 suggest you read it. 

Frostbite by richelle mead

Onto book 2. Of my re read.  This book is slowly getting darker for the cast. The worlds changing daily since strigoi are getting smarter with how they attack and who if at all make friends with. Could it be Moroi in the government or humans of the world who are don’t know anything of the vampire world. That I can’t tell you.  And thru the book Lissa and rose slowly learning more to the dark and finally new element called spirt but thing has you is it even worth to learn since as know more you use the more depressed and insane you get.  Plus add in the effect their is a new character in this book and might be cocky as hell but he changes this series big time to be the best it can be. But some things I liked/ loved of this book is the book is getting darker with more deaths in the moroi world and causing fear and panic so made you on the edge of the seat and this book had more of the strigoi factor than book 1 had. And dimka (dinitri) is treating rose more like an adult than a little kid and it’s quite refreshing even though rose is a kick butt women but she can get bratty. Other thing the new character in the book yea a bad influence but deep down he makes for a rock star character and enjoyed them a lot. But over all richelle has made this world slightly dark and more vamp like which I enjoy so 5/5 stars.
