Years of love have been forgot, in the hatred of a minute.

We are officially under a week to A REAPER AT THE GATES release!!! I can hardly contain my excitement. I finished A Torch Against the Night last night and relived all the emotions I felt the first time I read it. Now I’m off to start REAPER (thanks for the screw up Amazon) but mums the word until release day! I hope you all are as excited as I am for REAPER!

It takes only a split second for life to go horribly wrong. To fix the mess, I need a thousand things to go right. The distance from one bit of luck to the next feels as great as the distance across oceans. But, I decide in this moment, I will bridge that distance, again and again, until I win. I will not fail.
This book destroyed me.
Every single way I thought it might turn out, it went in a completely direction. This book completely ripped out my heart and tore it into shreds. But I loved every bit of it.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Published by Knopf books on October 20, 2015
Genres: Young Adult, Science Fiction
“Perhaps bravery is simply the face humanity wraps around its collective madness.”
Two words: visually pleasing.
If you haven’t seen the hardcover of Illuminae, it’s spectacularly beautiful. The jacket is a bright translucent orange/red situation and the physical book is written all over. The shelf appeal of the book alone is the reason I bought it in the first place. Thank god the content lived up to the beauty of the outside. Continue reading “Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)”

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi
Published by HarperCollins on March 6, 2018
“I cannot let the broken girl inside of me inhale all that I’ve become. I cannot revert back to another version of myself. I will not shatter, not again, in the wake of an emotional earthquake.”
You can’t see me, but I’m dying.
After expecting the series to be over after Ignite Me and accepting it (for almost 4 years, might I add), Restore Me swept in and ruined me. Okay, okay, I’m not ruined but my heart hurts and this book ripped open wounds I never thought I’d have.
After I read a really good book, I have a hard time coping with reality.
