So for the first 3 days of BookTubeAThon I read the Shatter Me trilogy. Like many other books I read during BTAT, my impression was pretty meh. But there was definitely some upsides, as well as a few downsides to the series. This will mostly be a review on Shatter Me, but I’ll mention a few things about the other books in the bottom of this post. Don’t worry, it’ll be 100% spoiler free!
Prepare yourself, one helluva rant is coming up. Continue reading
It’s Not Like It’s a Secret by Misa Sugiura
Published by HarperCollins in May, 2017
The first half of this book was actually really good. It wasn’t wow but it was perfectly enjoyable and I thought that it was a cute romance that I could recommend to just about anyone. Then, it wasn’t anymore. Continue reading
The premise of The Melody of You and Me (TMOYAM) promises a sweet novella about two girls falling in love in a bookstore. Amazing, isn’t it? It was absolutely great, but unfortunately it didn’t go much further than what could be read at the back of the book.
Alternative title: The story of how I learned to research books before reading them
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the night-Time by Mark Haddon
Published: 2004 by Vintage Contemporaries
So over the last 6 days I’ve been reading the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. The SoC duology is one of my all time favorites, and although I tried to keep down my expectations for this one, it wasn’t easy. (I feel like I’ve been over this a million times.) Anyway, I wasn’t blown away, but after being quite disappointed after Shadow and Bone, I ended up coming from my reading marathon quite pleased. I’ll go into further detail in a bit. If you haven’t read the Grisha trilogy but are planning on doing so, now would be the time to run. This is about to get spoilery real quick. Okay, let’s get into it!
At long last, I’ve finished this review. (I’ve been working on it for a month.) You can read it in either Swedish or English under the cut. Hope you’ll like it, and that you decide to pick this book up, because it needs to be read. Huge thank you to Harper Collins Nordic for sending me this book for review!
The Siren by Kiera Cass
Published by HarperTeen in January 2016 (org. 2009)
Genre: Fantasy, young adult, romance
I didn’t have very high expectations of this book. While I to some extent enjoyed the Selection series (or at least the first three books, which was all I could take), especially how fast paced it was, I was incredibly annoyed with the main character of that series. I guess I hoped that if the main character didn’t make me want to scream, I’d be able to at least appreciate the quick reads
Cass’ books are. So I tried The Siren. Well guess what, I wanted to scream.
