Book review: “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell

Going into Fangirl was really easy for me. I have heard of it a lot of mixed opinions, so I guess I didn’t expect much from it. However, I had in mind an idea of what this book might be [since I am a Fangirl myself], and I thought I would give it a shot.

To be quite honest, it wasn’t what I expected at all. I thought that I would get to read more about a fangirl. Sure, Cath, the main character is a fangirl, but not a big one. But this is not my only problem with the book.

Obviously, this is fiction, so the book isn’t supposed to be necessarily close to reality. But a book about a Fangirl has to describe a Fangirl from a real point of view. We only got to see a ‘true’ fangirl at the end of the book when the characters attended a book release. Which was a huge let down for me.

Another major no-no from me was the anxiety. I have anxiety issues, but not on the level Cath does. She has a lot of anxiety issues which unfortunately transferred to me whilst reading.

Usually, my anxiety strikes when I am in new places, meeting new people or trying something new. But this book, gave me so much anxitey that I thought I would have a panic attack if I wouldn’t have taken a break from it.

And my last problem with the book was the ‘otp’ the character loved. Now, don’t get me wrong…I don’t care what she likes, but it wasn’t even a real fandom she was in. I mean “Simon Snow”? Who is that??? Apparently that ‘fandom’ was a darker version of Harry Potter.

Why didn’t the author use Harry Potter as Cath’s favorite books? My only guess is that she wanted to create a fictional world for her fictional character to read, which is great, but don’t make it like Harry Potter. I don’t think Rainbow Rowell couldn’t use  Harry Potter in her books because of copyright issues. I am sure they would have let her do that… it was just so bad!

I mean…here is a quote from the book:

Levi said. “It’s hard for me to get my head around. It’s like hearing that Harry Potter is gay.”

Why is she referencing Harry Potter after having based the entire book around a fictionalized version of Harry Potter known as Simon Snow? Why didn’t she write about Harry and Draco and had to create Simon and Baz? [that’s actually what she did but she just changed their appearance.]

The only things I liked about this book are the flow of the words and all the characters [besides Wren].

I cannot say anything bad about Rainbow Rowell’s writing style. Her words flow over the page very smoothly and it is really pleasant to read. Both her dialogues and descriptive parts were really well written and thus a quick read.

Also, she built her characters very well. I liked reading about each one of them, except Wren because she is a brat. I really appreciate that Cath didn’t forgive their mother, I don’t think I would have either.

I cannot give this book more than 3.5 stars. I really wish I could because I wanted it to be so good! I really liked the story itself, but it should have been called something else, not Fangirl, because it doesn’t show almost at all what a fangirl really is…and than if you add all the other issues I mentioned before, it really is impossible to like this.

Sorry if I offended anyone with this review…some of you might love this book, others might hate it, but this is just what I thought of it. So, please, be kind :D.

Until next time,

Lexi xoxo!

P.S. I am sorry for a month without posts. I was quite busy during the month of August, but I will try to get back on track.

Book Review: “City of Ashes”

Hey dear reader,

Today I have the review for the second book in the mortal instruments series- City of Ashes.

Given the fact that this book was not adapted into a movie yet, I didn’t have the occasion to spoil the book by seeing the movie.

Here is the summary:

Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who’s becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn’t ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

City of Ashes is one hundred times better than the first book in the series. It had a faster pace and it was more action packed.

Also, in this second installment, you will get even more attached to the characters. Without spoiling the story I can only say that even the characters bond more as well as you will get more gripped with their story.

The new characters that are introduced in the second book, are very well described and have a strong background and this is very important because they have a huge impact on the course of the story. Obviously, we have villains and heroes, both which we hate and love.

The book is a lot more action packed that the first one and also its story line is more compelling. Another thing to appreciate about City of Ahes is the way the story is told. We are given a very well described vision of this world so this way we don’t need a lot of help to imagine the things Miss Claire has created.

After reading this second book, I couldn’t help but compare all the pros and cons with those from the first installment. So I concluded that City of Ashes is ten times better than City of Bones. Obviously, I cannot give this book less than 5 stars because it would be a crime. I cannot wait to buy the next book!

I highly suggest this to everyone who liked City of Bones, I am sure you will like this a lot more!

Until next time, take care,
Lexi. Xoxo

P.S. I really hope that they won’t butcher this book to movie adaptation as much as they did with the first one.

Book Review: “City of Bones”

Hello dear reader,

Today I have an awesome review for you. I read the first book in the Mortal Instruments series and I have to say that it was amazing!!!

Here is the summary:

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

I feel really bad for seeing the movie before reading the book. While I was reading, I was constantly comparing it to what I remembered from the movie. Obviously, that wasn’t the best thing to do but I couldn’t stop.

The book is very good and I figured that the movie was poorly adapted. From what I can remember the movie ending is 100% different from the book. And that is pretty sad because this is a great series and I am pretty bummed that they changed so much of the story.

The characters are very well built and they suck you in the story very fast. Also, the premise is original and very thrilling. Because of the changes made in the movie, I was always on the edge of my seat when I read the book.

I bought my book for Christmas last year, but I only read it now, and I feel bad for not starting it sooner. It is definitely an amazing read. Cassandra Clare writes beautifully and her characters are full of mystery and will make you love them. This is definitely a series with great potential and I am happy to have started it.

I just have to give it four stars out of five because for me the book had a very slow start. However, I recommend this to everyone, I honestly don’t know how someone won’t like it. So, in conclusion I am sure that you will love it!!!

Until next time, read a lot,

Lexi xoxox!

Book review: “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay”- NO SPOILERS!!!

The month of May has proven to be a very active one for me-reading wise. I rarely can say that I have finished four books in one month. Usually, my reading appetite is not so easily fed because most of the times I find myself in reading slumps that are horrible to get over. But I discovered that once I read a good book, I want to read more and more, it is just too bad that time isn’t so kind to allow me this luxury.

Anyway, I am writing this review exactly after I have finished the third book of The Hunger Games series, Mockingjay, so that the novel is fresh in my mind. As I am used to by now, I will write the review in two parts, one without spoilers and one with them, where I get to hype away. I wanted to post other two reviews before this one but I felt like I couldn’t wait anymore!

Here is the synopsis for the people that haven’t read the third book yet.

My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss’s family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans–except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss’s willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels’ Mockingjay–no matter what the personal cost.

*SPOILERLESS PART OF THE REVIEW*

Obviously, I cannot give too much away in this part but I can say that this book was amazing. You can figure that out by the time it took me to finish this book, which was impressively little. I just couldn’t let myself put it down. It is the one book that gripped me the most from the whole series. So I can assure every single one of you that you will enjoy this book. It is by far, my favorite from the whole series.

The writing style hasn’t changed for Suzanne Collins, however I did dislike a very important aspect in her novel. I would like to go into detail about it, but I will in the next part. However, I can say that I thought the ending was too abrupt and I was waiting for some more pages to magically appear in front of me. In this third installment of the series I fell even more in live with the characters and it was really hard for me to say goodbye to them. Collins, didn’t shy away from describing everything to the smallest detail, including the characters and everything related to them.

I am maybe one of the happiest people that the book will be split in two parts so that the directors can get more content in the movies, and maybe resolve my problem with the ending of this extraordinary novel. Also, I cannot wait to see the movies because from what the content of the book holds, I can feel that the movies will be blockbusters without any doubt. The special effects that can and will be used to create these movies will blow up everyone’s mind. Just you wait and see.

I really don’t have enough words to praise this book and series. I cannot do anything else but recommend it to everyone who loves a gripping story that will have you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the very end.

Without question, I give this book 5 stars out of 5. I would like to give it a gazillion if I could!!!

 

*SPOILER FULL PART OF THE REVIEW*
I really like this part of the reviews more because I can express my feelings a lot more freely and I can get more into details about what I enjoyed the most in the book. Also, I have been taking notes whilst I was reading the book so I remember key moments that really touched me in some ways.
.
Firstly, it was probably in the first few chapters where Katniss visits District 12. I didn’t think I would be so touched about that, but apparently I got pretty attached to it. Also, right at the beginning Finnick’s and Katniss’s condition. Especially Finnick’s!! I really like his character and reading/imagining him suffering was killing me! Also, the rules in District 13 remind me of what my mother used to tell me about the communism in Romania before 1989. All those strict rules and punishments from District 13 are very accurate with the stories I’ve been told.
.
Right at the end of part 1 in the book, where Peeta -in a horrible condition- gives a speech with President Snow and he says “District thirteen..dead by morning”, and they beat him up, that was a moment where I thought that he won’t make it out alive!
.
I liked Finnick right from the beginning. Of course, his looks in the movie helped a lot, but when he told his story in Mockingjay I fell in love. I mean, the poor soul! That crazy mofo Snow sold his body and if Finnick would not accept the person he loved the most would have died. I mean, how can you not love this extraordinary character?
.
By now we all now in what condition poor Peeta is. And when Coin sends him in the “Star Squad”, I make up my mind about President Coin, she’s a bi***!! When the squad’s commander died, Boggs, I cried. He wasn’t a character from the beginning of the series but he has a huge impact in the last book and he grew on me. Before this point in the book, the story line was pretty easy to follow, but from here on, I had a bit of difficulty to imagine all those pods the Capitol had scattered around and all the locations that were described. This is why I cannot wait for the movies. Until now, the first two books were easy to imagine because I had seen the movies before reading them, but now I did find it kinda difficult to follow.
.
I knew this moment would arrive. I’ve been spoiled so I wasn’t expecting any tears running down my face, even less them pouring down my face! Finnick was just killed by those freaking huge mutant reptile thingies. I swear that I was so sad about that that I had to take a short break so I could get my emotions back in check.
.
Like that death wasn’t enough, Prim died as well. This was a real shock to me. I was told about Finnick’s death, but I wouldn’t have thought about Prim’s in a million years!!! I was so shocked that I had to take another break and drink a glass of water to calm myself down.
.
When the time came for President Snow to die , I was pretty disappointed! I was very,very glad that Katniss decided to kill President Coin as well, but I wish she had put an arrow through Snow as well. When he laughed about Coin being shot, I honestly wanted Katniss to go get another arrow and shoot it through his eye, just how she does when she goes hunting!!! But we don’t always get what we want. *sigh*.
.hungergames5
Before the epilogue Katniss wanted to write about her memories, so she wrote about “Lady licking Prim’s cheek. My father‘s laugh. Peeta’s father with the cookies. The color of Finnick’s eyes. What Cinna could do with a length of silk. Boggs reprogramming the Holo. Rue poied on the toes, arms slightly extended, like a bird about to take flight.[…]the photo of Finnick and Annie’s newborn son“. That was such an emotional part. If I hadn’t cried so much at the deaths of Finnick and Prim, I would have had more tears to shed for it. Well, I had some anyway.
.
I cannot wait to see the movie and see what special effects they will use to make Katniss and Peeta look burned and I just…want to see how they will manage to make them look so torn apart like the book describes them.
.
When the book ended, like I said before I was expecting some more pages to appear. The epilogue was too abrupt for my taste. It felt like the author was rushing through it. It definitely didn’t feel like an appropriate ending and more like another book will be coming out. In my opinion an epilogue should be longer than two pages. I feel that the readers, or at least I didn’t get enough closure. I have so many questions unanswered and want to know so much about what happened to so many characters such as Effie, Haymitch, Annie and her child, the prep team, Gale’s family and so on.
.
Also, I wanted to read more about Katniss’s and Peeta’s relationship. I know this wasn’t a romance story per se, but when they finally get together we roughly get a page of them together, which is totally unfair. Besides, their children are honestly described in one line. That’s it….of course I think it is not enough!!!
.
I am definitely hoping that they will make a better ending in the movies. Because of the decision to brake the movie Mockingjay in two parts, they have more spaces and more possibilities to make a better ending with a proper closure. I am not exaggerating when I say that this novel feels unfinished.
.
Besides the disappointing ending, I think that this was the best book in the series. Whilst the others took me a week to finish each, I finished Mockingjay in two days-maybe 6 hours if you cut all the breaks and the time I took to sleep. Haha! It felt amazing to read this book before I saw the movie. Even if I’m still a bit confused about the ending, I will be even more excited to see the movie now that I know what to expect. I just hope I won’t be disappointed in the movie as well, as I was with the ending.
.
As I said before, I recommend this book to everyone!!! Especially people who lived The Hunger Games and Catching fire, and to everyone that loves the dystopian genre!
.
May the odds be ever in you favor!!!
Many hugs,
Lexi xoxoxoxoxo!! 

Book review: “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”- NO SPOILERS !

 Just this instance I have finished the second book of the Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire, written by Suzanne Collins, and I couldn’t wait one more day to write a review for this extraordinary novel!

Of course I am too lazy to write a synopsis for the plot again, BUT  I bet that everyone who wants to read this review has seen the movie or read the book, so I don’t really have to worry about that, do I.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

That was the synopsis you can get everywhere that does not spoil the adventure you are about to take part of.

*SPOILER LESS PART*

I’m really trying to make a decent review for those who haven’t read the book yet, so this spoiler less part won’t have as much detail and hype as the part where I get to release all my thoughts freely.

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins is definitely one of the best books I have read. Even if  it does not live up to my expectations. What I mean by that? Well…I was expecting the second book to be better than the first one just because the movie was.

I didn’t like this book a lot because of the first hundred pages that dragged on and on and on… I was waiting for them to get already to the games. Of course my heart and mind won’t let me give this book a mark lower than 5 stars out of 5 because the ending was excruciating and beautiful and ah…all my feels!!!

Obviously, Suzanne’s writing remained impeccable. For me it felt like she does have a unique style of writing, but who knows…that’s just what I thought. My only problem with the way she wrote this book was at some points-I will develop my idea in the spoiler part- she rushed the story.

All in all, this second installment of the Hunger Games trilogy must be read by every single one of you!! I wouldn’t be so generous by any means if I didn’t love a book so much! Really, you have to give it a try!!!

I give Hunger Games: Catching Fire 5 out of 5 stars!

Here ends the spoiler less part of my review, if you are interested in what I have to say about some details you are free to keep on reading. 🙂

*SPOILER PART* 

On this part of my review I won’t explain what I liked and what not. I will just hype about some things I read and ask some questions that left me hanging. It will look more like me taking notes whilst I read, and I did that, but I am explaining a bit more the parts that shocked and confused me the most.

When President Snow announced what would happen at the Quarter Quell, at the 75th Games I was going mad. Obviously, I knew what was going to happen because I saw the movie, but still, the book managed to make me very excited about everything that was going on.

When the reaping took place, I had to read it twice. Here is an instance where I didn’t like that the author rushed the action. I don’t know if these were her intentions to make it rushed so we would feel like Katniss or she rushed the action because she had to much content in the book…Anyways, she definitely gets a minus from me because I wanted to feel the pain and shock the characters went through, but I couldn’t because it was too short and very little described. Phew, this was a long paragraph.

The part where Katniss has to impress the Gamemakers and the sponsors, was hilarious. Well, to me anyway. I’m talking about the bit where she took a dummy and hung it and afterwards wrote Seneca Crane on it. It was funny to me because she was rebelling and still got the highest score along with Peeta that also did something as bad as that.

The moment where Katniss and Finnick fought the orange furred monkeys I remembered what a friend of mine said. She said, that she feels like Catching Fire is just a “filling” between The Hunger Games and Mockingjay. Well, at this part I couldn’t agree more. It started to drag on a bit and I felt like these parts could have been used better to describe others more rather than rush what felt like the important ones.

One of the scenes I wish were in the movie, is the one where Katniss and Finnick apply the ointment that Haymitch sent them and wake up Peeta by scarring him with their faces. I don’t think that scene was in the movie from what I remember but I wish it were. I would have lived to see Finnick a bit more relaxed and laughing, cause damnnnnnn, Sam Claflin is hot as hell!!!

There was a part where I got really confused… Johanna tends to give me that feeling…When she said she got Beetee and Wiress for Katniss. That was the part that confused me but I realized what she meant after that, but she still gives me a weird vibe, even after finishing the first book.

I sported a pretty goosebump skin when Katniss realized that Plutarch showed her the watch beforehand so he could give her a hint about the arena. I swear that was a moment that really touched me!

Again, Johanna manages to confuse me when she does not know how Beetee won the games. Like Katniss said, Johanna did nickname him Volts, how come she didn’t know. What is going on with her? Don’t spoil me people! I hope I will find out in the next book!

When I read about Annie, the girl Finnick loves, I remember that I was spoiled about him. *MOCKINGJAY SPOILER* I know that somehow I found out that he will die in the next book, thankfully I don’t know how, but it still hurts to know that he will be gone :(. *END OF MOCKINGJAY SPOILER*

At the very end, the tears started pouring. When she was picked up in the aircraft and woke up with Beetee before her. Oh my god, my heart started beating wildly! The conversation between her, Finnick, Haymitch and Plutarch managed to touch a soft spot in my heart! And then, when Gale was in the aircraft talking to her and telling her that there isn’t a Twelfth District I lost it. I was reading the last few rows with a blurry vision and it just wasn’t nice.

If you got to this part I want to congratulate you! This was a ramble that I am proud of!

All in all, this book has its ups and downs, and I felt like I should take down from its stars for rushing some important scenes and dragging on some that felt useless, but I won’t just for the fact that it managed to greatly play with my emotions. I really did love this book and I wish everyone would have the chance to read it, just like I had. Once again, I have to thank my dear friend Carol for recommending it to me and obviously for giving me the opportunity to read it . Love you lots, thank you!!!!

Well this was all folks, I hope I didn’t really bore you with my review, but I was really excited about it, as you can clearly see :).  This was a true ramble, if you weren’t sure how a real one looks, this is it. Haha!

Until next time, keep safe!

Much love,

Lexi xoxoxoxoxo! 🙂

 

Book review: “The Selection” -NO SPOILERS!

Oh My GOD! THIS, THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!

I haven’t read a book so fast in my life!!! I think I have read The Selection by Kiera Cass  in a total of 4 hours. I swear, I am not exaggerating when I say that I love this book more than I can think of!!! I knew I’d like it, but it didn’t cross my mind that I would love it so much!!!

This kind of book is best to read it at the perfect moment when you are in the right set of mind. I read The Selection when I was pretty happy and was in the mood for a very fluffy story.

Again, I am too lazy to write a real review and add a summary of the plot, but I am not that lazy to not write my opinion of it. Also, I went to the great trouble of adding a summary of the plot that I got from Goodreads I believe. 

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself–and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

 

I am not that sure that I know where to begin really. The first two pages are always hard to read when you are in a slump but I think that they actually define the entire book. What I mean is, if you don’t like a book from the beginning it is very possible that you’ll never finish it…at least that’s the way it woks for me.

I thought that the plot was very well narrated and the story line didn’t let me put the book down. The characters were as well, tremendously well described; and to my amazement and pleasure the main character America Singer has a major character development without which the story wouldn’t be as great as it is.

I honestly think that this book doesn’t get enough recognition for what it is and what great story it holds.The combination of a dystopian world and the emotions it gives, it is at times overwhelming but in the end it will definitely make you feel that you want to read more.

I would recommend this book to anyone that loves a very well written fluff from time to time. Obviously I can’t seem to preach this book enough and I cannot wait to do the same with the next two that I plan on reading ASAP. *giggles* I also think I might reread it as soon as I can; yes, I enjoyed it that much!

Once again, I am sorry if you did not like my review, but with time I hope they get better. Also, I really reaaaaalllyyyy enjoyed this book.

AND once again, I have to thank Carol for making it possible for me to read a book that made me so so happy! Thank you SO much!!

So excited and thankful! ❤


Until next time, stay safe,

Lexi! xxxxxxxxxx!!!

P.S. I know there is a bunch of controversy over this book, but I really do not see the point of all this hate that is directed over it…I mean, if you don’t like it, that is perfectly fine, but there are a lot of people that do like a soft “silly” story once in a while.

This book honestly made my 6 year-old heart sing of joy whilst I read the story of a Prince and Princess to be. There are people in this world that like different kinds of genres and characters and  so on, but you don’t have to call them stupid for what they enjoy to read!

It really was one of the best books I have ever read because it made me feel happy and at peace rather than anxious at all times. Sometimes our souls need that too. So don’t kill me for speaking my mind, but you should revise what you say to a person before you do because you may hurt them a lot, especially if they are the writers. I bet you wouldn’t like that either!

Book review: “The Hunger Games” -NO SPOILERS!

To be completely honest, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins  was one of my favorite books that I have read for a really long time.

My lazy ass won’t allow me to write a short retelling of the plot, but I have attached one that I have found online.

In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Panem is divided between 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal retribution for a past rebellion, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors while the citizens of Panem are required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’s young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives.
– Written by Suzanne Collins

To begin with, the plot was extremely well developed and narrated. It has been a long time since I have read such a well written story. And you can’t imagine how happy and sad that makes me. It makes me happy that such great works of art exist and it makes me extremely sad that there aren’t more such books as this.The author managed to tell the story so well that it gave me so many emotions that I thought had a problem. Honestly, it is one of those books that will give you chills and be happy at the same time, and probably will make you question your sanity.

The characters were extremely well put on the paper. Reading their description felt like looking at a picture of them in detail; obviously the fact that I had seen the movie helped as well, but it didn’t really mater because they were really well described.

I took the book everywhere with me and took it out at every time I had a spare moment to read. It doesn’t matter where you are, when you listen to some good music and you read The Hunger Games I sear it will give you chills. I know it gave me. 

We arrived to that part where I have to recommend this book. Well…I really don’t know who to recommend it to. I could recommend it to everyone really!! Child, middle aged or elder it doesn’t even matter, I am sure you will 100% love it if you love dystopian books, but I am sure that you have read it already if you love the genre. If you have not read it yet, you are either insane or don’t like the genre, either way you should give it a try and I can assure you that you will like it even if it is just a bit.

I am really sorry if you didn’t like my sorry ass of a review. I am not really good at it but I really liked this book and I felt like sharing.

And, before I forget, I have to thank my lovely friend overseas, Carol, who made it possible for me to read this great book. So, thaaaaaank youuuu Carol, love you!!!

Until next time, take care,
Lexi!!! xxxxx
