The Rose Society

The Rose Society - Marie Lu 4/4.5 stars.

I'M IN TEARS.

AND THE END CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THE END.


My revenge is complete.
I force a smile onto my face. In the silence, I sit alone on my throne and wait eagerly for all the satisfaction and triumph to hit me. I wait, and wait, and wait.
But it doesn’t come.


THIS THING RIGHT HERE. WHERE IT ENDS. It may not end in a cliffie but I JUST NEED THE NEXT BOOK.


I'm not even sure what I want to say I just want to scream.

Warcross

Warcross - Marie Lu
I'm sold.
DON'T LET ME DOWN.

Stormbreaker

Stormbreaker - Anthony Horowitz 2/2.5 Stars
Recommended for younger audiences especially for the ones who's new to the spy world.

When his guardian dies in suspicious circumstances, fourteen-year-old Alex Rider finds his world turned upside down. Forcibly recruited into MI6, Alex has to take part in gruelling SAS training exercises. Then, armed with his own special set of secret gadgets, he’s off on his first mission to Cornwall, where Middle-Eastern multi-billionaire Herod Sayle is producing his state-of-the-art Stormbreaker computers. Sayle has offered to give one free to every school in the country – but there’s more to the gift than meets the eye.

You'll enjoy it if you fancy a cliche mystery-spy-plot.


So, young boy got blackmailed recruited into the MI6 where he trained for less then a month before he goes on a mission, finishing what his uncle did. His uncle can't continue the mission because he died. Like, a well trained spy, definitely trained more than a month, and he died.

A line from the book:
"He still didn't know how or why, but he knew now that the Stormbreakers had been turned into killing machines."

Um, okay?? Alex?? Some explanations??

Then there's some of the action sequences that just happen immediately with little reasoning. Then there's the end where Alex is captured and Heroid tells his tragic backstory and the why he did it. I won't explain more but you should get it what's inside the book.

If you can get across and ignore the plot holes I'm sure you'll find this book as an interesting read or maybe even enjoy it.

The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss

The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss - Max Wirestone The odds of Dahlia successfully navigating adulthood are 3,720 to 1. But never tell her the odds.

Meet Dahlia Moss, the reigning queen of unfortunate decision-making in the St. Louis area. Unemployed broke, and on her last bowl of ramen, she's not living her best life. But that's all about to change.

Before Dahlia can make her life any messier on her own she's offered a job. A job that she's woefully under-qualified for. A job that will lead her to a murder, an MMORPG, and possibly a fella (or two?).

Turns out unfortunate decisions abound, and she's just the girl to deal with them.



Lovely book. Perfect for people who likes comedy, or someone who's searching for something funny with very little romance, and a hint of mystery in it. If you watch the Guild, you should definitely read this! I occasionally feel a similar vibe to it, the feeling.

This book is filled with a life of mistakes, awkwardness, happiness, and a bit of mystery. I love it! Not only is this book good, the plot is well written as well.

Dahlia's just trying to enjoy life when suddenly, bam, there's a mystery. The thing is, Dahlia doesn't know anything about it as well making it more mysterious to us (and her). So she did it, unexpectedly. With the help of Charice, her amazing (slightly creepy but nonetheless amazing) roommate, and herself, Dahlia navigates through life as an adventure.

One of the good thing about this is the ending! It's a pretty unexpected ending, a type of ending that I'll always enjoy, that will make you rethink everything.

You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir

You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir - Felicia Day So, where do I start?

I have watched The Guild and some of Felicia's other works so when I found out she was making a book, I was just so excited. The cover is interesting and the whole book just looks, ahhh! So when it came out, I immediately find ways to read it.

Then, I read it. Let me tell you what, it didn't disappoint. From the start to the end, the book is really entertaining and I found it easy to read as well. Felicia had a way to make the writing enjoyable to read. This book gave us the perspective of her life and her problems inside it, how she isn't afraid to speak up, and how she managed to solve and move past all of it, and became who she is now.

One of the reasons I actually like this book is in some moments, I feel like I can relate to the situations. By reading this, it's like some sort of confirmation that I can get pass through it, even though it's gonna be a really hard time.

I would definitely recommend this for people who are searching for pretty inspiring books that can make you laugh at times!

Inherit the Stars

Inherit the Stars - Tessa Elwood The concept is actually pretty good. But, how it's written didn't make me get into the book. I do not understand a lot of stuff. The characters and the world that the author created wasn't given much history. So I don't really understand what's going on, like why is this so important or is just such a really big deal? And what's up with Asa and Eagle's relationship? Eagle barely spoke in like more than half of the book and then suddenly they became all kind of together and such.

Can someone please explain how is the situation with Asa's mother? Should we not know, like maybe we're going to be told in the next book, or there are no plans for us to be told. The way I see it is her mother is like a traitor? A little background in this would make it better.

Despite all of the things I've wrote, the ending kind of a little shocked me, but it's not going to be enough to make me really want to know what will happen. Rating: 1.5 stars.

Thank you Netgalley for the digital copy.

Heir of Fire

Heir of Fire - Sarah J. Maas After finishing this book, I just wanted to say that this is an amazing book in an amazing series! There was time I got bored, put down the book and other times where I just think of how long the book was and just wonder when will it be over but when it's finished I just wanted more of it you know? More pages since the end is just... I need to continue! If you read it, I promise the end of the book will keep you impatiently waiting for the next book. The next book will come out in September so at least I don't have to wait too long. Just two months. Two painfully long months. Yep.

I enjoyed this book. Though some parts I just don't get. Like the witches one. I like it, but I don't really particularly enjoy it. I know the story will have a big part on the later books but it haven't really intertwine with the main story. But overall, it's nice to read about Manon and how she starts to have feeling for Abraxos and to being a better person. Sure, it's not like she suddenly stops murdering others and starts donating for charity or something (if there is one), but you can see the development and, I guess it's pretty enjoyable.

As for the things that's going on in Adarlan, it's more interesting. Aedion Ashryver, who is apparently Aelin's cousin works for the king, being one of the top soldiers until we learn the truth. I wonder what would've happen if Aedion came back to the castle while Aelin was still there. From what I've read, Aedion still haven't known that Celaena, the King's Champion is Aelin. Can't wait for both of their reactions in the next book, unless they won't meet in the next book.

The there's Sorscha a supposedly an insignificant healer who worked in the castle. She managed to catch Dorian's heart. When I soon realise that they will probably be a thing (at least for a while), it kinda felt, weird. I want Dorian to be happy, I really do! Since His and Celaena's relationship is purely platonic, Dorian finding someone should make me happy right? Why did it feel wrong. Well, Sorscha died. That saved me from intense thinking, I guess. Apparently she is kind of like a 'spy' and sends letter to Ren, someone who works with Aedion and one day attacked by a group of people who is actually the king's spies. So, the king actually know that they're doing something suspicious. At the end Aedion is captured, Dorian is basically a slave, and Chaol ran.

Celaena, on the other hand, is with Rowan. Once an asshole but now someone I'll never let go. Rowan is someone who first acts rude but after knowing his past becomes someone so endearing and just becomes someone who Celaena trusts really much and I just love them together! In this book, Celaena and Chaol were apart so I got to see Rowan and Aelin's friendship grows and turns into an lovely start of something that will be amazing.

Overall my rate for this book is 4.5 stars. Can't wait for the next one!
