Yeah totally! It was really fast paced, and I enjoyed the main character a lot :)
Finished Throne of Glass;
At the movie theater!
The Dream Thieves is the second book in the Raven Cycle, which is going to be a 4-book series.
Okay, the problem I had with this book was that at times, I was kind of confused at certain arcs in the story. The story is so original and creative but sometimes I had a hard time following it. Maggie’s writing is beautiful and intriguing though, and it makes me want to know what happens next.
The best thing about this book is the characters. I love watching them develop, and each of them is so unique and memorable. The only one I have I don’t quite understand is Adam, because he just seemed kind of selfish? And also his connection to Cabeswater ??? But my favorite characters are definitely Noah, Blue, and Gansey (especially his scenes with Blue).
I also liked the Gray Man’s story. At first, we thought he was this mysterious villain, but then we ended up being on his side in the end! It was really cool reading from his POV.
During the book, there are hints dropped at Ronan’s sexuality, and something to do with Adam perhaps? I’m really excited to explore their relationship in the next book. I also noticed that quite a few people ship Ronan x Kavinsky. Kavinsky was a very dynamic character, and for some reason, I don’t think he’s really dead??? The climax of the story just seemed very sudden.
~ Orla+Blue+Boys on a boat ;)
~ Noah+Blue ‘s kiss ! I need moreeeeee
~ Gansey+Blue ‘s almost kiss
~ Finding all the dream objects including Ronan’s dream mother; that was a really interesting scene!
So I’m super excited to read Blue Lily, Lily Blue because there’s just something very enticing about these books!
Rating : 4.5/5
Genre : YA Dystopian
The One is the third and final book in the Selection trilogy. These books are always really quick, fun reads, though they are not my favorite. I still find that America is quite annoying because she is very indecisive!
Cons; the whole love triangley thing with Aspen was unnecessary because America just could NOT decide. She kept putting off telling Maxon about Aspen, and that almost got her kicked out of the Selection. Also, Maxon was totally acting out of character when he decided to marry Kriss instead. It took getting shot to realize that he really loved America, even after he wrote all those love letters!
I wish we got to explore the society more in this book, because we always stay confined to the palace. The whole rebel thing never felt that important, and when we found out that Kriss was a rebel, that was like the least surprising plot twist ever. Also, the final attack with the rebels felt quite rushed, and SO MANY PEOPLE DIED.
Okay now for the pros; I really enjoyed watching Celeste’s character development! She was one of my favorite characters, and I was so shocked when she got shot through the head!! Also, there were a lot of cutesy moments with the girls just having fun, and MAXERICA MOMENTS <3 Maxon and America scenes are just the most adorable things to read.
So, overall I really enjoyed this, & the covers are absolutely beautiful *_*
