(17) Immortal Reign // Bookish Blurb

Image result for immortal reignImmortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes

This is (I’m pretty sure) the last book in the Falling Kingdoms series. In it we follow our characters as the Kindred try to finish the ceremony that was interrupted last time and allow them to reach their full potential and destroy the world. Because, you know, when you’re an immortal force you kinda don’t like humans (apparently). Continue reading “(17) Immortal Reign // Bookish Blurb”

Basically, Simon is a closet gay high schooler who ends up emailing some other gay kid at his school but they don’t know who each other is. And they fall in love via email but Simon is forced to come out to the school all the while trying to find this boy who is stealing his heart. It’s a very quick easy read especially since it goes back and forth between the narration and the emails they exchange. Continue reading “(16) Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda // Bookish Blurb”

I don’t really know how to explain this book. It’s set in an alternate (parallel?) universe where people clone dodo birds for pets and time vortex(es)- what’s the plural of vortex? vorti?- appear randomly. We follow our main character Thursday Next who is a (for lack of a better word) secret agent dealing with literary crimes. After a very important book is stolen, she learns of a criminal mastermind set on destroying everyone’s favorite stories. I mean, are you hooked yet?!

I didn’t like this book. It’s well written, the characters are complex, and the plot is well thought out with an ending that made sense. None of that changed the fact that this is a post apocalyptic zombie book. How in the world did I end up reading one of those?!? No wonder I didn’t like it.

(12) Let’s Get Lost // Bookish Blurb

Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

I started this book (rather hesitantly) thinking that it was a teen romance (which it is) but it’s also so much more. We basically get four short stories which are all connected. The first three stories are about people who meet Leila, a girl driving up to see the northern lights, and then the fourth story is Leila’s. Each of the stories is kind of it’s own love story but they are all very different and aren’t always about romantic love. Also this book has very much the feel of a teen road trip adventure story with lots of odd hijinks. Continue reading “(12) Let’s Get Lost // Bookish Blurb”
