Reign of the Fallen- Sarah Glenn Marsh

 

insta

”Since you’ve been gone, I don’t even feel right in my own skin anymore. It’s like I’m missing a part, a lung or a kidney, and the rest of me can’t figure out how to work together without that one piece.”

At first, I felt confused. Like all this world and character building was overwhelming my mind at once and I couldn’t keep pace. But once it picked up, it was hard to put down.

I was dazzled by the dark and mesmerizing tale that felt more horror and diverse than anything I’ve ever read. Oh, My Stars!!! This should be on everyone’s tbr.

Your jaw will drop at the beautifulness that is brought forth through Sarah’s words. Her storytelling building is too phenomenal for words. I can’t say it enough, this will be one of the YA books of the year.

Odessa is the bisexual badass heroine we were all looking for in a lead character. She took no shit and gave it right back. Bow down to this new queen who has flaws and who we admire anyway.

If the synopsis doesn’t fully grasp you then this stunning cover will. That cover is to throw you off from the dark and the mysterious that will greet you at the opening page.

Be forewarned, this fantasy tale is extremely violent. It contains a lot of battle sequences with death looming throughout and rising from the ground. It also deals with addiction that is sequential to the whole story.

Brace yourselves! Don’t say that I didn’t warn you!

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. 

Vampire academy by richelle mead 

Ahhh going back to this book is pure heaven!!! Anyone who knows me knows I love love love this series it’s my all time fav with its side series. I literally bugged and bugged Stacy to read it and I did have a fun not in mean way hissy fit. I was like WHAT?!?!!? You have never read her!!! So glad she enjoyed it and wasn’t like Harry Potter which I know she doesn’t like. But yea I’ll go back to being me in a second but this book I’ll let the photo say what it is about since I know could say so much.

Crazy how many memories this book has for me since read it back in high school and guess I enjoyed it since back then I liked things that were going on meaning high school my self so could relate. Now reading it again (I don’t know how many times at all but it’s a lot) I didn’t like that aspect but it’s because I’m a tad older but its darkerish theme with the magical aspect I still enjoy, plus who doesn’t enjoy a bit of unacceptable love ship. Other thing going was how bad ass rose hathaway is, during the times it came out YA still fringe aspects so I don’t know if female who happened to be strong heroism was as big but I’m trying to go by memory since back then I didn’t know a lot about the YA world even though read its books like after va was twilight, before that was a ton of hp re reads, holes, and zach’s lie. I can remember what else had read minus speak freshman year. And last thing I love going now back then I didn’t know books came out once a year we didn’t have good reads to tell us or even Facebook and it’s book groups. So I just walked into a book store and I’d see it and I’d fall hand over heals dancing plus it was my group of friends mall trip with out going to borders and yes you heard right borders. So I’m slowly going thru the series I’m 65-70% done wit frostbite and reminds me as series goes on how much I love this series & a reminder of it I have the tattoo’s from the series tattooed on my neck like in the series. 

And that will be one tattoo I’ll never ever regret. So thru the days follow along as I read the series. 5/5 and that will never ever change ~~~~JUSTIN 

Warcross- Marie Lu

IMG_1942

“Hideo smiles at me, truly smiles, in a way that brightens his eyes. His gaze wanders across my face. He is so close now that, if he wanted, he could lean forward and kiss me- and I find myself leaning toward him, too, hoping that he’ll close the gap between us.”

I’m always amazed at the books I read after attending a conference. This isn’t the typical book that you would find on my bookshelf, but I’m glad that these events broaden my horizon in the book world.

A book about VR gameplay would have me look the other way, but everyone buzzed about this book so much that I couldn’t say no at Book Expo.

I’m very proud to say that I really enjoyed this one. I have never read anything by this author and I’m ashamed at myself for it. Her writing flows in a perfect way to immerse you into the full story. It doesn’t even let up after you finish.

Little by little Emika has been losing things that are close to her. After losing her dad, she has been struggling to try to stay afloat. She spends her time being a bounty hunter for people who are breaking the rules/gambling illegally in Warcross. But that hasn’t been paying off lately. She has three days to come up with a few thousand dollars or else she’s out on the street with her roommate.

During the opening games for Warcross, Emika hacks into the game and thinks she’s hidden when her need for money becomes stronger than her conscience. She steals an high priced item from the game to resell, but as she takes it she becomes visible for all the world to see.

Freaking out after she’s been spotted, she receives weird phone calls and texts from an unknown number. She finally gives up and calls the number. Not believing it when she calls, she’s patched through to the creator of Warcross, Hideo Tanaka. The glitch caught his attention and he wants to talk to the girl behind this problem.

As Hideo talks to Emika, he makes her an offer that is extremely difficult to refuse. He sweeps her off to Tokyo to help him uncover the severe security problems that could ruin him and Warcross forever.

As Emika starts to uncover the darkest secrets and inner workings of the game, something more evil is lurking in the shadows.

I instantly fell in love with Emika. She was a total badass who kicked your ass first and didn’t care about your name.

Marie Lu sure knows how to pack a punch. If you thought you knew things, you better think again. This is high action packed with a twist and a hint of romance. The way she delivers these incredible details is brilliant and I can’t wait for book two.

I’ll never doubt anyone ever again!
Are you ready for Warcross?

4/5

Cover Reveal!!! Batman: Nightwalker – Marie Lu

Penguin got some of the hottest authors together to write stories for D.C. Characters. First we were blessed with Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo and we fell in love. Now we are going to fall all over again for Batman by Marie Lu. And I bring you the glorious cover reveal…. 


Product Description

The new, eagerly anticipated BATMAN YA novel is an action-packed thrill ride that could only be penned by #1 New York Times bestselling author MARIE LU. 


Before he was Batman, he was Bruce Wayne. A reckless boy willing to break the rules for a girl who may be his worst enemy.


The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list. 

One by one, the city’s elites are being executed as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he’s forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most brutal criminals. 


Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope. 

In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. What is she hiding? And why will she speak only to Bruce? Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer. 


In this second DC Icons book–following Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer–Bruce Wayne is proof that you don’t need superpowers to be a super hero, but can he survive this game of tense intrigue, pulse-pounding action, and masterful deception?

Haunting the deep Adriana Mather 

Ahh yes going back into this world woot woot last book was a very big time fall read. I remember day I started book one it was pouring out just like the cover of book one. But going in I was excited for this since its same cast again your big group of mis fits of the descendants. To start 6 months has past since Samantha Mather helped save Salem and the descendants from a hanging that there old family happened or caused it. Thing with this book that it has scenes to titanic not many authors will go for that but Adriana one day found a letter from her family that was right after that said they survived with the Harper’s which most know as one of people who started Harper Collins. But the story telling makes it feel like your on the ship pre days to its sinking and all the ghostly feels of in town. And Adriana makes story so livid. Unlike book 1 this book flows and it’s extremely mysterious unlike book one which unsure what was going on so made it very enjoyable. And wished this wasn’t last book in this series but hope she comes back one day. But def loved loved loved it and much better than book one. 

5/5 stars ~~~~~ JUSTIN
