Return to the Isle of the Lost (A Descendant Novel Series 2)

Return to the Isle of the Lost
By Melissa De La Cruz

  Home Sweet Home.
  Oh finally, I’m reading this book. FINALLY!!!!! I’ve waited to read this for ages!!!! But the wait is worth it, because I love Barnes and Noble Exclusive edition. I just love them. They’ve always got some cute little surprise for readers or some extra scenes. LOVE IT. Now…Return to the Isle of the Lost…in fact, it has been a long time since the last time I read The Isle of the Lost. And…I don’t think I get the time to reread it before…I was so busy then and now I’ve got tons of books to read. But, since it’s a Disney novel, I still remember the scenes pretty well and the movie as well!!! Oh wait! I think the sequel movie is about to come out as well!!!! (Just who can tell me how to watch it now since my favorite site being killed!!!! No!!!!!!!!)

The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo Series 1)

The Hidden Oracle
By Rick Riordan

  What’s the funniest book of 2016? Definitely The Hidden Oracle from The Trial of Apollo series!!! I laugh throughout the entire book. But is it merely a funny book? No!!! We got all those favorite ingredients we love about Percy Jackson and The Hero of Olympus!!!! What’s best? We don’t have TONS OF POV!!!!! AND I LOVE THAT!!!! (You might remember why I don’t love The Hero of Olympus as much as Percy Jackson—too many POVS and all the similar scenes.) But no! The Hidden Oracle has none of that!!! After all, Apollo is different, right?

How do you punish an immortal?
By making him human.
After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favour.
But Apollo has many enemies - gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

Glass Sword (Red Aueen Series 2)

Glass Sword
By Victoria Aveyard

Kneel or Bleed

  Oh my god!!!! I was literately screaming toward the end!!!! The ending, the plot twist!!!!! And give me back my tears!!!!!! No!!!!!! How can one of my favorite characters died!!!!! 

 I know there are a lot of you out there hating the first part, or the entire part of this book…but I don’t!!!! (Even though I did have some complain to do…) But, I must not deny that the second part of this book is…what? Heart-squishing!!!!!!  

If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

10 Dangerous Female Characters

10 Dangerous Female Characters

  In order to celebrate one of my most-anticipate books of 2016 is about to come out, let’s do this! Oh wait, you mean which book? there are so many fit for this category right? Especially now most of the female characters are dangerous…and that’s AWESOME!!!  
In fact, I plan to do this long time ago, from the first time I saw some bloggers and tubers sponsored by the publisher. And I was like “damn! I’m gonna do this!!! This tag is fantastic!” So, here I am, telling you why I’m doing this tag. Yes, I know. I still haven’t told you which book, that is—The Fate of Tearling!!!! About to release at November 29, some of the readers had even get the ARC already!!!! (I’m so envy!!!!) By the way, you might wonder why using the term “character” too. Well…the reason why I choose “character” instead of “girls/women” is because…they might not be human being! Isn’t that obvious? What? You never think of this before? (Maybe just that I take too many literary courses these day…)
  Perhaps…before I start, you can tell me who is your number one dangerous female character?

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices Series 1)

 Lady Midnight
By Cassandra Clare

  In a kingdom by the sea

  I’m finally reading this book!!! I purchased it as soon as it released without knowing anything about it. (Well…the truth is…I don’t even know there is going be another Shadowhunter series…) Because I haven’t read City of Heavenly Fire, not until this summer. So, after I devoured both The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments series, I moved forward to this book. (I know it seems a bit weird that I haven’t post any review about The Mortal Instruments series…but I simply must do this first, or I’ll miss all the good thing to tell you.) Now, after reading City of Heavenly Fire and Clockwork Princess with tears washed through my face, I’ve really high expectation for Lady Midnight. But sorry to disappoint you…I’m so disappointed with this book.
  Who am I kidding? I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!! EVERY SINGLE PAGE.

  In a secret world where half-angel warriors are sworn to fight demons, parabatai is a sacred world.    
 
  A parabatai is your partner in battle. A parabatai is your best friend. Parabatai can be everything to each other—but they can never fall in love.

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices Series 3)


 Clockwork Princess
By Cassandra Clare

  THE INFERNAL DEVICES WILL NEVER STOP COMING

  The final of The Infernal Devices!!!! So many emotions for this book…am I getting more and more emotional??? DEFINITELY NOT!!! I’m so addict to this book that I’ve read the ending three times and cried three times. That’s…Wonderful!!!! And you know what I thought after reading Clockwork Princess? Mortmain is a better villain than Sabastian, or perhaps…was. (But I still like Jonathan more!!!)

  So, THE INFERNAL DEVICES ARE WITHOUT PITY.
  THE INFERNAL DEVICES ARE WITHOUT REGRET.
  THE INFERNAL DEVICES ARE WITHOUT NUMBER.
  THE INFERNAL DEVICES WILL NEVER STOP COMING.

  I guess so too…The Infernal Devices will never go away from my mind. That ending, that plot twists. If I must choice a favorite author, Cassandra might not be the top choice, but if it’s a best finale author? Cassandra Clare will definitely be my first choice. No other author writes their final books as well as Cassandra Clare. I cry EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. From City of Heavenly Fire, now, Clockwork Princess.

  A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.
  Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.
  As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

  To be honest…I still like Tessa with Will better than Tessa and Jem. You might wonder, “Really? Among all the things to write…Tessa and Will is the first thing you come in mind?” the answer is YES!!!! Come on! The love triangle between them is really important!!! Especially is one of the few love triangles I cared. (The other is Lia, Rafe, and Kaden from Remnant Chronicles of course, and I get a satisfying ending. Will I get one at Clockwork Princess? Let’s see!)  

  The warmth of your hospitality leaves something to be desired.

  First, let’s take a look at Mortmain. Why did I say he was a better villain? I think his schemes and planning were much better than Jonathan’s. He had been behind so many things, but he still managed them pretty well! When I was reading Clockwork Princess, it’s the first time I felt The Silent Brother useless. I’m not kidding, useless.
