“We didn’t come all this way, survive all we have, only to lose each other again,” he said. “You won’t allow that. I know you won’t, but if you can’t believe in that yet, then believe in me until you can.”

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The third installment in this series did not live up to my own expectations. I found myself getting bored and unable to focus in at some points of the book. It won’t stop me from reading the final installation though. I didn’t lose interest in the series.

Genres: Fiction, Young Adult, Paranormal

My life was an unending, unchanging midnight. It must, by necessity, always be midnight for me. So how was it possible that the sun was rising now, in the middle of my midnight?

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Where’s the GIF of Sirius Black from Harry Potter when you need it? Twelve years I’ve waited for this and I’m not going to lie to you, I didn’t think I’d ever see the day. I waited so long to march into that bookstore and pick up my copy of Midnight Sun. Back when it was just a draft and 200 pages long, I contemplated printing it and making my own copy to complete the series, but I never did and at last I have a beautiful hardcover copy.

“Imagine me 
master of my own universe
I am everything I ever dreamed of”

I’m truly ashamed of how long it took me to read this. With COVID-19 and working from home, I have no excuse for reading 2 books in the last 4 months of WFH. Still, I’m glad I got this finished before I head back into a new normal daily grind and put this beloved series to rest.

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Pages: 544

No matter how much I crave peace, the gods have other plans.

I am truly ashamed of how long it took me to read this book because it is brilliant and deserved to be consumed in a week or less. Life kept getting in the way or I kept having readers block, but I finally finished and now I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel.

Pages: 370

If I cannot be better than them, I will become so much worse

Have you ever been drawn magnetically to a book? You’re looking at your bookshelf, trying to figure out to read, and out of nowhere is a pull towards one specific book? That’s what happened to me with this book. One morning I woke up and decided I have to read this book and I have to consume it as quickly as I can. The magnetic pull was right. This book was amazing.

“Nothing is impossible…when you’re me.”

 

 

 

Long time, no see. Classes kicked my you-know-what this semester and I had zero time for reading. Tonight I finished my first book since January and it was a spin-off to one of my all-time favorite series: the Lux series.

If you don’t like aliens, a story that will make you grin ear-to-ear, or an author who can write leading men like it’s second nature then this isn’t the book for you.

Her neck tingled and when she turned to look, she could almost sense a presence in the shadows.

Restore Me (Shatter Me, #4)

34992929Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Published by HarperCollins on March 6, 2018

Pages: 435

 

“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.
