"Harlequin comics" Nr. 2

Keeping Luke's Secret (Harlequin Comics) - HINOTO MORI

Typical Harlequin Romance Comics.
Well, this one seemed a bit short, good concept, but I would like to see more story and depth to that.
But most of Harlequin stories feels underdeveloped, but I guess that's what makes them so easy to read.
I really like the art, it was an additional plus for me.

"Harlequin comics"

A Wife in Time (Harlequin Romance Manga) - Mami Ishikawa, Cathie Linz

It was fun.

I haven't read the book, so I can not tell how accurate it is, but judging by other Harlequin comics it is very precise with the original story.

Time travel, bit of a romance and predictable, but still interesting plot.
Worth to read it once.

Non-stop arguing

— feeling grin
Fiance Wanted!  - Ruth Jean Dale

LOL, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this super fast and funny book and non-stop arguing of the main characters.
Not my typical read, but time to time those books are great for the relaxation and it was exactly what I wanted!
Do not take it seriously and you will find it quite entertaining ;)

LOL

A Wholesale Arrangement - Day Leclaire

The whole story is very transparent and predictable, the girl seemed a bit shallow, but it was still a lot of fun to read this small book.

Milano guy was hilarious and 2.5 stars from the whole rating goes only to him :D

Underdeveloped

The Bride, the Trucker and the Great Escape - Suzanne McMinn

Well.. it was interesting, but too short.

Everything was happening too fast - the whole story, love, resolution, ending - too fast.

I would prefer this story as a full format book, with more depth, cuz it really has a lot of potential.

Rotten Relationships...

The Postman Always Rings Twice - James M. Cain

Rotten people, rotten souls, rotten motivations and bittersweet justice.
It was good.

I have another book by the same author and I am sure I am gonna read it very soon.

This book was sooo good.

These Broken Stars - Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner

Not what I expected it to be at all! I thought it would be a cheesy love story and though it was a love story I loved the characters and their romance, and the mystery that kept me reading!
I finished it in one go.
I think the biggest surprise was a survival part of this book, it was the main aspect and usually I am not the biggest fan, but this one wasn't boring and kept me intrigued and worried for the main characters. It was a very very good book.
I really want to read the next book set in this world!

The pale ghost...

Miss Mayhem - Rachel Hawkins

I was waiting for this book for so long, remembering how I first came across the Rebel Belle, how I didn't wanna read it because of the cover, how i picked it up because it was recommended to me by the guy and how much I loved it in the end. Rebel Belle was interesting, fast, it was cool and corky, it was humorous and I had a great time reading it.
And then..then Miss Mayhem happened.
Do not get me wrong, it is still a solid book and you should still read it, but it felt like a pale ghost of the first one, like nothing was really happening. Overall it felt dragged, like a short break before The Grand Finale. I am waiting for the 3rd book and I want to see how she is gonna to end all of it.
Well, I liked this book, but the ending got me thinking, that if it was a duology I would actually be alright with this "dramatic" and bittersweet wrap up.

I will be very short here

Rebel of the Sands - Alwyn Hamilton

5 Stars for me!

Characters
Plot
Writing style
Twist
EVERYTHING!

Second book... I want it....

 

The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 3: Commercial Suicide - Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie

Ok... It was kind of confusing. They changed the art style and I wasn't a fan of the change. Story was not going anywhere and I was kind of expecting this volume to be more... explainable, specially with how the 2nd one ended.
A bit disappointing. I hope Volume 4 covers for this one.

The Copper Gauntlet - Cassandra Clare, Holly Black

I  like this series so far, and it still has a HP vibe (like a strong one), but it doesn't bother me at all.

The first half was a bit slow, but then I really like how the story progresses. A lot of things happened by the end of the book, a lot of information were given and if the series stopped here I think I would be satisfied with the ending, I definitely gonna read the 3rd book whenever it comes out, but still I am glad it doesn't have a huge cliffhanger I would wait for long long long time to resolve.   
My favorite character so far is wolf Havoc - I would love to have a pet like him :D

So, waiting for the 3rd book. :)

HP vibe, but in a good way. Promise!

The Iron Trial - Cassandra Clare, Holly Black

Ok.
First of all - I like it, that's exactly what a 3 stars stand for.

I will be short.
It is a good book. Interesting, entertaining and as aa lot of people said already, it does reminds of Harry Potter like every 3rd page - BUT - in a good way, I mean, come on, we all miss HP and I am not saying those books are on the same "level" (no offense), but it gives the right vibe and it's all I wanted.

Defo continue reading.

My New Addiction!

Killer Instinct - Jennifer Lynn Barnes


I added Jennifer Lynn Barnes to my favorite authors. I knew it would happen the moment I finished The Naturals and after Killer Instinct I put a huge star next to her name. I am a huge Criminal Minds fan and having a "teenage" version is just precious! I am clearly in love with this series, but the only thing that upsets me is that I buy them in paperbacks (Hyperion) and the third book did not come out yet, but I do not mind waiting, cuz I know it worth every minute!

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

Noooooow!
 
I do not wanna talk much, the only thing I want to express myself about is that I am happy for Cassie to choose Dean.

Don't get me wrong here I love Michael as a character, he is much more than it seems and he understands more than he says out loud and I thing he is great with Cassie, as Dean said once to her (in chapter 42) - "He makes you smile",  but I was still rooting for Dean, tho it was very hard to choose.
I do not like love triangles usually, but I am not bothered by this one.  
I really can  understand Cassie feelings for both guys, probably because I was once in the same situation and I really can relate to that.  

I really like Lia's character and I hope she will have her happy ending and I won't be bothered if it would be Michael. I can easily picture them together.

Overall I really do not mind who is ending up with whom, because I love every single character in this series!
 
Sloane - that's the character I wanna know more! She reminds me of Spencer from Criminal Minds and I have the same precious feelings for her.  
Looking forward to learn more about her!

Stars Above: A Lunar Chronicles Collection (The Lunar Chronicles) - Marissa Meyer

It was all I wanted, finally I have a feeling of completion!

SPOILER ALERT!
Invaded - Melissa Landers

It was a great read, it was a great continuation of the story and much more than I hoped for!

I have read Alienated so long ago, but surprisingly I remember it very good, I really like the whole concept of this book.
I find both main characters very likable, tho I roll my eyes to some of their cheesy love lines. ;)

Still, I really like this series, definitely going to continue with the story .

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER

I was waiting for the whole book for them to... emm... evolve (?) :D Seriously, it is becoming frustrating. ..

There were some stuff I was kinda finding a bit off... for example : their 50 shades of Alien PE class punishment or when smart and farsighted Cara acted absolutely out of character - stupid - when she picked Hansel and Gretel story to tell the children, story that even some adults find a bit creepy and RIGHT AFTER the talk about rumors of people eating young ones on Earth .... of all the stories. ... really? !

I was heartbroken with David death. .. I was just keep saying no no no to myself. .. I am so sorry for Syrine. .. both guys she ever loved are dead now... I can not imagine, how she is going to overcome this.. I want her to be happy, I want her to find love... I would assume it could be Cara's brother. . but he has a crush on Aelyx sister. .
Love is a hard thing...

I really like the ending, it left me very much interested for the next book, hope for paperback to come out soon, cuz I want my books to match ;)

SPOILER ALERT!

Science fiction fairy-tale :)

The Martian - Andy Weir

Well, finally I have finished to read this book... do not get me wrong, it was interesting, but it was soooo long... well, I have an idea why it was so hard to get through, but it has nothing to do with the plot , more to the language. It was very specified at times, but still understandable.

I was enjoying this book, it was like reading a science fiction fairy-tale :D

Solid. Decent book.
Definitely recommend!

Gone to watch a movie.

SPOILER - SPOILER - SPOILER

It was a good book, but I was waiting for the mental breakdown ot something, seriously, there were suppose to be one! He was alone, isolated, every day might be the last one, some fogy hopes to get alive from it... and yet he was always (!!!) optimistic - I am not buying it. He is still a human... well, his sense of humor was one of the main parts of the story that was enjoyable for me.. but after a while it was not so believable... I mean, I wanted some drama, I was waiting for something to happen and then....bum! Happy End without any explanation what happened with all the people in the story.
Ending was rushed and it is strange, considering how detailed the whole story was..
