“So much of love is chance. There’s something scary and wonderful about that.”

I was not sure if I was going to enjoy this series. But I must say that I am truly invested in Lara Jean and the gang. All my feelings as I had during the first book still stand true. The family dynamic, the relatability…it is all what makes the book so great.

I will say that Lara Jean got on my last nerve in this book, I was over how many times her and Peter broke up. I am going to say it now, if they break up for real in the last book be prepared to see an entire melt down. I know I have one more book left, but I don’t want their stories to end. Thank you for the ones who suggested this series, it has truly been a delightful experience!

Review: Sadie

Author: Courtney Summers

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Our main character Sadie loved nothing more in this world than her little sister Mattie. They shared a mother who even when she was there she was never really present. A mother more impressed with drugs and alcohol, Sadie has to step in and give Mattie what she was missing. One day their mother Claire just ups and leaves, leaving Sadie responsible for Mattie. Mattie who adored Claire so grief stricken by her leaving, holds on to the idea of finding her when she gets a postcard from the City of Angels “be my good girl.” Mattie holds on so tight to the possibility of finding her mom, one day she too leaves. She gets into a strangers truck and her mistake is trusting someone whose intentions were way worse than she could ever imagine.

Mattie is murdered and Sadie loses herself. Her one reason to do anything…to go on is taken away from her. And the only way to right this tragic wrong is to seek out the man she believes is responsible for her sisters death.

“I’m going to kill a man. I’m going to steal the light from his eyes. I want to watch it go out.”

Sadie leaves home and starts the journey to get her revenge. Along the journey we learn more about Sadie as a character, the relationship with her mother or lack thereof, and the men that came tumbling in and out of their lives. As we go on this journey with Sadie we feel her desperation, we feel her sadness and we know that there is not a soul that could stop her from doing what she’s set out to do.

Will she find her sisters killer? Will her resilience bring forth the justice that will hold Sadie?

They Both Die At The End

Review: They Both Die At The End

5/5 stars

The concept of this book is so cool. On your Death Day, you get a phone call letting you know that you are going to die. What a heavy reality to carry for your last hours on earth? I like the fact that the two main characters live these two completely different lives and in the end they not only become friends but they experience a connection deeper than that. One that could have formed into love if they had more time. I was kind of mad that they had to encounter so many obstacles on their last hours, but when I look back on the book as whole, those obstacles were needed.

At the end of the book I knew by the title that something tragic was going to happen and my emotions were going to be all over the place. But I was not prepared! My heart was shattered and is still shattered in a million pieces and I am still NOT okay 😭😭

This was my first Adam Silvera read, and I was not disappointed!

Until next time, until the next book.

In a world that is lead by the Martial Empire, defiance is met by death. Unlikely situations collide the worlds of Laia who is slave doing whatever she can to save her brother who has been arrested for treason. And Elias, a solider who wants nothing more than to break away from the empire. When these worlds collide, Laia and Elias soon realize that even though their missions are completely different, their fates are intertwined; and that they need each other to survive the harsh world they live in.

This was the first fantasy YA book I have read since Harry Potter. And let me tell you!!!! I am in love!! I cannot wait to crack open the second installment and find out what happens next. The world building, the characters, and the detail in this novel was completely breathtaking. I was addicted and drawn into this story line as soon as I flipped to the second page. One sure tell sign that I am really into a book, is when I talk to it. And I found myself talking to the book throughout the entire story! There were characters that I absolutely loved: Laia, Elias, Helene (although she made me mad a few times). And then there were characters that I hated, well there was only one main character that I hated and that was The Commandment. I wanted to fight her the entire time.

I am late to the party on this series, but if you have not started it, START IT!!!!!! And I ship Laia and Elias, I hope they fall in love, get married, and have a bunch of babies.

If you have read this, please let me know how you liked it!

Until next time, until the next book.
