The Ranger's Apprentice : The Burning Bridge (The Ranger's Apprentice Series 2)

Image
The Ranger’s Apprentice: The Burning Bridge By John Flanagan   Here comes the second book!!! Yeah!!! I hope that the ranger’s story will never lost! This book is even better than the first one…but what’s worst…it left us with a cliffhanger. Still…the waiting is worth it! You won’t regret reading this book. Bracing for a final clash with the evil warlord Morgarath, the Rangers rally the kingdom's allies, and Will is chosen, along with his friend Horace, as special envoys to nearby Celtica. But the simple mission soon takes an unsettling turn - the Celticans have disappeared, their town abandoned. The scheming hand of Morgarath, it seems, has been far from idle. He has found a way to bring his legions over the once impassible eastern mountains and is planning to ambush the king's army in a rout. Now with help many miles away, Will and Horace are the only ones standing in the way of the dark lord's plans.They have shown great skill and courage in their training, but how will …

The Ranger's Apprentice : The Ruin of Gorlan (The Ranger's ApprenticeSeries 1)

The Ranger’s Apprentice: The Ruin of Gorlan By John Flanagan   What book is one of my favorite series besides…the answer is THE RANGER’S APPRENTICE!!! This series is so awesome that I’ve read it for about 5 to 10 times. I can say that I maybe just love it a little bit less than Harry Potter! It must become a movie!!! (Well…although some producer had contact the author before…but…nothing happen for so many year…so sad…) The Ruin of Gorlan is so amazing that I fell in love it almost immediately. So…let’s read the summery! They have always scared him in the past — the Rangers, with their dark cloaks and shadowy ways. The villagers believe the Rangers practice magic that makes them invisible to ordinary people. And now 15-year-old Will, always small for his age, has been chosen as a Ranger's apprentice. What he doesn't yet realize is that the Rangers are the protectors of the kingdom. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battle…

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner (The Twilight Saga Sequel)

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner
By Stephenie Meyer
Well...what to say...this is the exact example of not so good short story... I know that some people like this book as much as Twilight...but...for me...it's kind of boring.
Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the newborn vampire world she inhabits.
Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had uncannily powerful senses, superhuman reflexes, and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood...life before she became a vampire.

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass prequel)

Image
The Assassin's Blade By Sarah J. Maas   “My name is Celeana Sardothien" she whispered. "And I will not be afraid.”   This, is definitely one of my favorite book among the Throne of Glass Series. I. Love. It. Although Assassin’s Blade is complete with short novels, but every story has connection, and they might contain important messages that the future series need. This book is the third SJM’s book I’ve read, and as it turned out, it didn’t disappoint me at all. I know that many of you worry about short novels…since they’re often not so great…I myself read several examples of it. But don’t be afraid, The Assassin’s Blade isn’t one of them, instead, it’s even better than some of the original novel…

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles)

Cinder By Marissa Meyer
Oh My God!! This book is great!!! Well…I’ve heard of this book long time ago, and I read the summary in Chinese version for the first time. When I was reading, I was like…umm…it sounded boring and blablabla. I guess I just wasn’t so fond of fairytale retelling then. (Or perhaps I was mistaken by the horrible summary.) And then few months ago, (or maybe many months…) my friend told me that this was a great book and worth to read. (By the way, she is the writer of Starry Stories—Melody!!! Yeah!!!) So I took a look at the English summary, and since I was already fascinated by fairytale retelling…I think it might worth a try. And now…I’m completely in love with it!!!! I can’t wait to get the entire series once I receive the red envelops!!! (Haha! I love New Year!!!)

The Golden Braid By Melanie Dickerson  The one who needs rescuing isn’t always the one in the tower.   I finally got the time to finish it! I was finally out of the exam's control!!! (At least...for these two weeks.) I've always love the Hagenheim series~ And with every heroine become stronger and stronger, the books are better and better!!! Especially this one! I was totally mind blown!!! The ending...quite unexpected. (But if you know Rapunzel...you might guess the ending...no spoiler!)

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass Series 3)

Image
Heir of Fire By Sarah J. Maas   She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.   Poor Chaol~ come and mend your broken heart... (Umm...Vivian, you're in the wrong story...this isn't a fairytale retelling...after all.) Keep sighing throughout the entire book...blaming Celaena, blaming Chaol...and especially Rowan!!! Noooo!!! The only person I didn't blame was Dorian...he was such a miserable guy!!! I don't need Rowan's sudden appearance!! Why would I need an old Fae? I only need Chaol! (But strangely...I didn't against Feyre and Tamlin in A Court of Thorns and Roses at all...it must all because Rowan was a horrible Fae...haha)

Don't do this to me!!! I want them back!!! Ahhh!!!    That's...what happened when I read this book...so be careful if you decide to open it.

Throne of Glass  By Sara J. Mass   It is absolutely a great book!!! I finish it within two hours!!! (I kept reading that night...first Atlantic Gene, Queen of Tearling, then Throne of Glass. Reading night~Sigh~wonderful~) And the book cover look gorgeous~ (The Chinese version was especially beautiful, although it was far from the original cover design. But...I think the design was even better!!!)
