Seven years

, , , , ,

Seven years, I waited for that one simple moment.I was young, naïve, and had a few less scars. 

Somehow your pretty boy smile caught my eye.
Then I went away.

I grew up.

Fell for the wrong people and cried for the ones that didn’t care.

I gained a few scars and decided to come home.
You still had that brown curly hair and know-it-all look in your eye, and I fell for it again.

I put on what armor I had left and put myself on the front line.

I stood their far to vulnerable but I was willing to risk it for that pretty boy smile.
But I forgot to protect my heart and you took it, only for a few perfect seconds and decided to move on too the next one willing to sacrifice themselves for you. 

I hope she was good enough for your stupid pretty boy smile. 

I hope you know I was in love with that stupid smile for seven years.

Hey guys! Today I will discuss the books I’ve read in the month of June. I’ve had an amazing reading month, I read a total of seven books! I really enjoyed almost all of them so with out further a due lets get into it.
#1 A court of mist and fury by Sarah J. Mass. This is the third book in SJM’s acotar series. I loved this book and I gave it five stars. I did a full review on this book so if you want to know my thoughts go check that out. https://fanaticbooknerd.wordpress.com/2017/06/03/a-court-of-wings-and-ruin-book-review/ 
#2 A whole new world by Liz Braswell. This book is a retelling of Aladdin , I’m not going to lie I didn’t really enjoy this book and I don’t really have a reason why, it just wasn’t really my thing. I gave it three out of five stars.
#3 Always and forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. This is the third and final book in the Lara Jean trilogy. I really enjoyed this book though it was probably my least favorite in the Trilogy. I gave it four stars and I have a full review if you want to know more. https://fanaticbooknerd.wordpress.com/2017/06/08/always-and-forever-lara-jean-book-review/ 
#4 Invitation by Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky. I loved this book! It’s split up into four different parts each written by a different author, it all came together amazing and it became a great story as a whole. It’s about these four different people from very different backgrounds who inspect the paranormal. I gave this book five stars.
#5 The last star by Rick Yancy. This is the third and final book in the fifth wave trilogy, I don’t know why but for some reason I don’t like these characters at all and they kind of ruin the story for me. I thought the ending was kind of weird and unsatisfying. These characters make so many stupid choices and their so annoying. I gave this two stars.
#6 The book jumper by Mechthild Gläser. I loved this book and it was so unique and different. I gave it four stars and I did a spoiler free review so go check it out. The https://fanaticbooknerd.wordpress.com/2017/06/17/the-book-jumper-book-review/ 
#7 Redeeming love by. I loved this book and I gave it five stars. It’s about this woman who has had this horrible life and she meets this guy that completely turns her world upside down and that’s all i’ll say because it’s more fun to go into this book not knowing a whole lot. 
   Well that’s all for today! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and don’t forget to like, comment, and follow! Happy reading!

The book jumper |Book Review 

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey guys! Today I will be reviewing The Book Jumper by Mechthild Gläser. This book doesn’t come out till July 20th but for some reason my Barnes and noble already had it on the shelf so I was able to get it super early. 
    Description:

Amy Lennox doesn’t know quite what to expect when she and her mother pick up and leave Germany for Scotland, heading to her mother’s childhood home of Lennox House on the island of Stormsay.

Amy’s grandmother, Lady Mairead, insists that Amy must read while she resides at Lennox House but not in the usual way. It turns out that Amy is a book jumper, able to leap into a story and interact with the world inside. As thrilling as Amy’s new power is, it also brings danger: someone is stealing from the books she visits, and that person may be after her life. Teaming up with fellow book jumper Will, Amy vows to get to the bottom of the thefts at whatever cost.”
    I really enjoyed this book though it wasn’t my favorite but it was still really enjoyable. The story is so unique and it feels like a love letter to reading. So many amazing pieces of literature were referenced and we got to see and interact with all kinds of characters. Characters from the the jungle book, Pride and prejudice, Peter Pan, and a couple others. I recommend this book to anyone who loves reading and to anyone who has ever dreamed of being a character in their favorite book. 

     There’s this great element of mystery in this book. You ink you know what’s going on but then there’s another twist that turns this story right on its head. 

      These characters are all very different and have barely anything in common. We have Amy our main character who unlike most ya protagonist she is really skinny and has been bullied most of her life because of it. I liked her character but she could have had more development in my opinion. 

     Then there’s her mother Alexis who we really didn’t see a lot of in This book. I didn’t trust her and I thought she was hiding something. Her character seems a little unhinged and doesn’t really know what she’s doing as a mother.

     There’s also Will who oh my goodness his child most be protected at all cost. He’s a great friend to Amy and I love how their relationship grows through out this book.

     Overall I really enjoyed this book and I hope we get more stories set in this world with these characters. I gave this book four out of five stars. I hope you guys enjoyed this review and don’t forget to like, comment, and follow. Happy reading!

I’d rather be a bird

, , , , ,

I’d rather be bird.Just picture it, you could fly wherever and whenever.

No responsibilities, no commitment, no pressure.
Birds don’t have to deal with heartbreak and lies.

Oh how nice it would be to be a bird.
If I was a bird I could see the world.

I wouldn’t have to worry about the future or be broken by the past. 
But birds don’t have a home .

Birds don’t have family dinners.

Birds don’t know what it’s like to dance the night away with someone you care about.

Birds don’t know what it’s like to laugh with your friends at two in the morning.
When I really think about it, it’s truly better to be me.

Don’t break my heart 

Tags

, , , , ,

Well this is different. What makes you special?

For the first time I didn’t fall for you because of your looks or your humor but for your heart. 

I don’t know why but I just know that those bright blue eyes won’t break my heart.

And I like that.
For some reason I like our relaxed playfulness a lot better then the soul crushing anxiety I had with the others.

I like that my heart doesn’t stop when you walk in a room.

I like that I don’t have to become a new person just to build up the courage to talk to you.
Maybe I don’t have to loes my mind to find love.

Maybe not everything in life had to be a uphill battle.

Please just keep this simple, take my hand and tell me how you feel.

That’s all I’ll need.

Always and forever, Lara Jean |Book review 

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey guys! Today I will be reviewing Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. This is the third and final book in the Lara Jean trilogy. These books are your classic contemporaries, their adorable and they just give you a big hug when you read them. Since this is the third book I’m not going to give you the synopsis because spoilers but here’s the goodreads page for the first book:To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, #1) by Jenny Han — Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists

    I did enjoy the third boo but it definitely wasn’t my favorite, there were a lot of cheesy moments and the story wasn’t too strong but I still enjoyed it and i love these characters so much it doesn’t even matter.

     Okay so now I’m going to go into more details so stop reading this post if you haven’t read this book.
                                                               SPOILERS 
     Okay so the book starts off with Lara Jean in the second half of her senior year and she’s waiting to hear back from the colleges sh applied to, mainly UVA. 

     I really enjoyed Lara Jean’s development in this book because she really became more aware of who she is and what she wants. I’m glad that she ended up going to UNC because that’s really what was best for her and not her family or Peter. 

      Lara Jean and Peter were really cute in this book, they didn’t have too much problems in this book like they’ve had in the past. They just enjoyed being together and being happy.

      I loved seeing Lara Jean’s dad get married and everyone in the family getting ready and being so excited. It really bugged me that Margot was so rude too Trina, I’ve honestly never liked Margot, i thought she was kinda stuck up.

      I found it really interesting too see Lara Jean’s road too college as she finished senior year, got rejected from her favorite school, and finding a new school. A lot of people I know are graduating right now so it was weird to read about it while also living it. 

       I’m really glad that Peter and Lara Jean stayed together because I was so worried they were going to break up but I think they’re going to be okay but I guess we’ll never know for sure.

      Overall I enjoyed this book but it didn’t really satisfy me. Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed is post and don’t forget to like, comment, and follow. Happy reading!

A court of wings and ruin book review

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey everyone! Today I will finally be reviewing A Court Of Wings And Ruin by Sarah J. Mass, this is the third book in the ACOTAR series. This series is a little weird because this is the last book with our protagonist Feyre but we are getting more books in this world.      I loved this book and I thought it did a great job at finally giving us everything we’ve been waiting too. I gave this book 4.5 stars out of 5 just because I wasn’t really satisfied with the ending which I guess is okay since this isn’t really the end. 

     If you haven’t read this series you definitely have to. Depending on how the Throne of glass series ends I might actually like these books more then Sarah’s other series (Throne of glass). Anyways I’m not going to give a synopsis for this book because it is the third in the trilogy. Without further a due lets get into spoilers so if you haven’t read this book yet stop reading, if you have read it, lets get into this crazy discussion. 

                                                                    SPOILERS

     Okay i have so much I want to talk about. So this book Ickes up three months after ACOMAF and Feyre is living in the spring court with Tamlin and she’s secretly sabotaging him at every turn and causing his people to loss their trust in him. I was really surprised we were only in the spring court for the first hundred pages. I thought most of thi book would be playing secret agent and trying to destroy Tamlin. After Feyre an Lucian leave the spring court we head back to our beloved night court but not before we finally got too see the autumn court! We spend most of this book preparing for the battle with Hybern and also trying to arrange a meeting with all the high lords (which was insane btw). Before we go any further lets talk about some of these characters.
Feyre: I absolutely loved Feyre in this book, after just the first ten pages you could see how different she is then she was in the first book. We was no longer the stubborn and cruel character from acotar and she wasn’t the broken and lost character from acomaf. She now has a family that she wold die for. She is the high lady of the night court and no one is going to get in her way. 
Rhysand: As usual Rhys is amazing. I love how he protects Feyre and treats her like a queen. He doesn’t undermine her and he brings out the best side of her. He never pushes her. He defends her against anyone how even looks at her in a bad way. I love that they have such a beautiful and healthy relationship.
Lucian: I have always loved Lucian and I truly hope one day he gets his happy ending. I was really happy that he went with Feyre to the night court and he finally stopped being Tamlin’s little puppy too kick around. I really hope one day when Elain is ready she’ll accept the mating bond and they can be together, Ireally think they could be great for each other (WE DID NOT GET ENOUGH INTERACTION BETWEEN THEM IN THIS BOOK)
Nesta and Elain: I loved Nesta in this book and I’ve loved her since the end of acotar. She’s definitely not perfect but i think with some time she will become an amazing person. I hope maybe she and Casian can be together because they obviously are attracted to each other. I felt so bad for Elain in this book. She was so broken by what happened in the cauldron and all she wanted was to go home too her fiancé. I think her powers are really interesting and in time she will become a strong and amazing women.

Tamlin: Tamlin is still a horrible person and still has a lot to do before he is redeemed in the eyes of the fans. But he did do some good things in this book. I cried when he saved Rhys and told Feyre to be happy. I think he will always love her and will always have hope that she’ll go back to him. I hope he can respect their relationship and that their courts can have a peaceful alliance.
     Know theres like a billion more characters but if i talked about each and everyone of them this post would be as long as the book itself. Ow i want to talk about my top five favorite moments.
1: When Feyre was going to the wall with everyone and was planning to go back to the night court and then her maid Aliss said she was going back to he home to the summer court. She told Feyre she would always have a friend in the summer court an Feyre said she would have a friend in her court and Alis knew she was talking about the spring court but the night court. I love that even though Feyre didn’t tell her she still knew Feyre was in love with the night court and its high lord. I hope we see more of her one day.
2: When Feyre saw Innthia with Lucian and she broke her hand. I love this scene because we got too se Feyre’s awesome powers and we finally got revenge on the piece of trash that is Innathia. (Btw it broke my heart too hear what she did to Lucian). I also love this scene because it’s a great example of Feyre and Lucian’s relationship.
3: When Nesta and Cassian were fighting the king. This moment was so intense and I thought Cassian was going to die and I cried. But i love this scene because Elain came up an surprised every San she was like “don’t touch my sister!” And then she stabbed the king. The king! I really wasn’t expecting that but I’m glad Sarah wrote it that way. 
4: When Feyre’s farther came to their rescue and brought tons of soldiers and the lost human queen! This scene was so amazing and heart wrenching because he named his his after his daughters. I wanted to cry because even though we never really saw him doing anything this just showed how much love he has for his daughters. T also reminded of a scene in acotar where Feyre is in the spring court with Tamlin right after he take her from her home and she thought she saw her farther coming to get her. Was so happy at the thought of him coming to recuse her but when she realized it wasn’t him she said something that she should have known it wasn’t him because he old never be brave enough to come get her, but this time he was.
5: When Rhys “died” and she begged Tamlin to save him. First off i knew Sarah wouldn’t kill hm for good so I didn’t cry when he died but i did cry when he came back. Feyre begs Tamlin the last person in the world who wold ever want to save Rhys but he did and when Feyre said she would give Tamlin anything, all he said was for her to be happy. 
    Of course there were so many more moments that i loved but those are just a few that stuck out to me. I wanted to make another list about the saddest moments in this book because the were many but this post is already pretty long. Let me just say that when the suriel died it was surprising emotional, and we found out that when he told Feyre in the first book to stay with the high lord he was talking about Rhys the whole time. Also when her farther died was obviously emotional but he died protecting his daughters and i think its going to bring the three of them closer together. 

    Anyway that’s all for today. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know what you’re thoughts on this book. Don’t forget to like, comment, and follow. Happy reading!
