Review: City of Heavenly Fire

City of Heavenly Fire
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know a book is good when it is over 700 pages and you still didn't want it to end.

I didn't realize how much I missed these characters.

I was so scared to read this book, but it turned out almost perfect.

Clockwork Princess ended perfect so I should have known she would bring it.

Authors take note! This is how you end a series.

Review: The One

The One
The One by Kiera Cass

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

wow. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would!

I forgot how much I loved Maxon.

Oh man I was giggling like a teenager and bawling like a baby. This book was seriously incredible.

The ending of the love triangle was perfect.
I was really happy that they both realized that they weren't really in love with each other and that they just loved each other. And that Aspen wasn't still head over heels for her

There was one thing that I disliked. The deaths. She killed so many people that it almost became unnecessary. Some deaths in books are really sad but are part of the story, some were like that, but it got to the point where I was wondering why she kept anyone alive.

Book staging

Broken symmetry by Dan rix. I added a yellow and black car (the main character drives), DNA, a mirror, a set of keys, a laptop and the book itself. I could explain these items but it might give big things away :P If you have read it I hope you enjoy it :)

I just read the greatest book!

This guy Jem ends up in the middle of a beautiful conspiracy. Turns out his ancestors were pirates, and he might be the key to finding the Dangerous Knife. It’s a mythic artifact that disappeared centuries ago, and now a shadowy group of thieves are looking for it. No one knows what uncovering it might do, but these guys are willing to kill for it.

I won’t say anything else. But believe me, if you like Dark stories with Knights and Princes, you have to read this one.
