Book Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Title: The Girl on the Train
Author: Paula Hawkins
Series/Standalone: Standalone
Genre: Mystery, Fiction, Suspense, Adult
Pages: 316
Publisher: Doubleday Canada
Year Published: 2015
First Line: "She's buried beneath a silver birch tree, down towards the old train tracks, her grave marked with a cairn.

"There she sits. The girl on the train. What she sees gazing out the window will change everything.
Everyday the same
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She looks forward to it. She's even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life- as she sees it- is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
Until today
And then she sees something shocking. IT's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Unable to keep her discovery to herself Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?"

My Rating: 3.5/5

I think that books need to stop saying that there is a thrill that you'll never suspect because I'm overly suspicious soooo.... I thought that this book was chilling and creepy. Needless to say a perfect fall read, that being said I'm not sure I loved it. I enjoyed myself while reading it but I also found the way it was written to be a little bit confusing for me as I couldn't read it all in one sitting. I also found that the characters were extremely frustrating. I didn't care for any of them and while all together they made for an interesting story, I wouldn't want to hear anything else about them... really ever. 
I also found that this story was frustrating for those who don't care for self-pity. That being said, if you're newer to thrillers or  mysteries with an edge this will be right up your ally. Remembering that this is a adult book I would suggest this for an older crowd.
All in all, I enjoyed the suspense and the build up but wasn't impressed with the ending to the novel. Tell me what you're thoughts are down below if you've read it, if not tell me what books you plan to read for fall.

Thanks for reading,

Spoiler: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

So I picked up this read thinking it would be a perfect fall read as it was said to be chilling and suspenseful. I found that both of these things are true, but I also saw too much about this book before I started reading it as it's being released as a movie soon. So many trailers. I also found that everyone saying their is a giant twist, didn't really help me in the long run. As I've mentioned previously I'm an over thinker and super suspicious. Therefore, I suspected Tom, but then thought that I must be the crazy one only to come back to him time and time again as a possible suspect ( I also watch some crime tv, don't judge a girl). Overall I enjoyed my time reading this book but it didn't blow me out of the water.

Rachel: There has never been a character that was so drowned in her own pity than Rachel. She couldn't have a child, so she took up drinking, she then got left behind from her husband with a blonde young woman. Ok so that's sad, don't get me wrong and at first I felt sad for her. But then when she was on and off the bottle more times than I could count, I just started to feel annoyed. I'm grateful that she was stubborn in finding out about Megan but overall she's just a sad character to read from.

Anne:  I don't care for her either. To think that her husband who cheated with his first wife with her wouldn't cheat again, well that's just stupid. I don't want to say that people don't change but... I wonder. I also found that her fear of Rachel was a little strange. For her child's sake of course but other than that I guess I just don't understand. That being said, I want to know what she whispered to Tom in the last few pages.

Megan: I'm not going to say she got what she had coming, but I will say that she lead a strange life. To have kept such dark secrets to herself for so long... that's scary and I wonder what else she might have opened up about given the chance. 

Scott: I thought for a moment that he had killed her, but he just didn't seem like that type of man. To go through her things was obsessive but to kill her, that's a whole different ball game. I do wonder what he'll do now though.

Kamal: Was their affair real? I'm not sure I understand what happened overall here.

Tom: What a sack of garbage!! I mean really to lie about everything with everyone around you that's gotta do some messed up things to a person. Not that I doubted it based on what he did to Megan. Also shifting the blame. No one made you bludgeon someone to death you oaf. 

Moments to Remember:
Final Line: "And I have to get up early tomorrow morning, to catch the train."

Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Title: A Court of Mist and Fury
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses (Book #2)
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult, New Adult
Pages: 624
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Year Published: 2016
First Line: "Maybe I'd always been broken and dark inside."

"Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court- but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms- and she might be the key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured should, and decide how she wishes to shape her future- and the future of a world torn apart."

My Rating: 5/5

First off all the stars! Second off, I thought before I read A Court of Thorns and Roses (my first Sarah J. Maas book), I wondered if Sarah J. Maas was going to be over hyped but for me she sure isn't. I loved it! And now I'm trash and can't wait for the next book in the series to come out (why is 2017 so far away). And now I'm filled with so many emotions. So let's talk about this book. So this book follows Feyre while she lives through what happened Under the Mountain and coping with her new body and life. I think that this book was spectacular. Filled with so much more world building and character growth. I thought that the look into mental illness and surviving an interesting. I also found that I loved this book so much more than ACOTAR and I thought that that book was fantastic. I also thought that Sarah J. Maas does an incredible job of twists and turns. I couldn't believe how many turns this story took and can't wait to read the next one.

Thanks for reading,

Spoiler: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

So I did it. I read the mammoth. And I found that this book was so much better than the first one and I loved that one so much! So now get ready for me to loose my mind. I found that the setting was very interesting. The change from the spring court to the night court was fantastic. Everything down to the clothes was amazing. I loved that everything was so different and a different way to look at the "bad characters." I also found that some interesting subjects were tackled in the book, PTSD and abuse was crazy. I thought that the characters did change a little too quickly, but that being said, I found that there wasn't any instalove. Relationships in this book were built over time.
Also this book is very explicit when it talks about sex. Just for young readers

Feyre: I thought that the change was a little crazy in this book. The way that she was so disturbed in the beginning made me feel that this book was already headed in a different direction. I loved it. I thought that her finding herself and who she was meant to be was incredible. I also found that the mating was amazing and her and Rhys together make total sense to me. I loved how she changed into a total badass. I thought that the way she fought for everyone and once again sacrificed for her family and for the night court. Can't wait to see her as a spy.  Also the sex was incredibly hot. 

Rhysand: I thought that his back story was incredible. The way we get to see what he did for who he loves. The way he's broken and shattered. I loved it how he was equal and pushed Feyre to be better. Whether that be through flirting or sassing back and forth. I also found that he became an incredible loving character. I think that he was a strong character to say the least and to see him bow to her. Ugh my heart just burst. Especially that ending were they fake their bond is over. My heart. Ow.

Tamlin: What the hell man? I loved you and now you're hurting me so much.  And maybe it's my own fault for writing off all his past behaviour as part of the curse or like hey that's the beauty and the beast part. But now he's just a total dick. I couldn't stand him. The way he locked her in. I was bawling like a child. How could he not see how much he was hurting her?? Also the way he acts to get her back. Once again the possesive crazy behaviour cut me so deep. I did not see the twist coming.

Lucien: Also dude, what the fuck? I try not to swear on this blog but could you not see how stupid things were getting. Did you not think like for the safety of your land at stake? And your people? Come on. Alse you and Elias yay. Finally someone for you but god damn it. You could have seen before that. The frustration is so real.

Mor: I loved how she owned every piece of who she is. She didn't take the crap that other people gave her under the mountain. I also thought that it was tremendous the way she overcame throughout the series. I loved the three people love between herself, Cassian and Azriel. 

Amren: I want to know all her backstory immediately. She is so strange and powerful and eerie. I think that her back story would be one of the most amazing thing I'd ever seen. 

Azriel: I love his angsty, quiet love. I thought that he was a perfect spy and full of interesting secrets of his own. I wonder how long he's loved Mor. I can't be mad at him. At all.

Cassian: I thought that his character was interesting in the background. I thought that he was a tough brute but I wonder about his life without Mor. I also found it interesting that Rhys said he vomited after battle. I hope that Nesta is his mate in all honesty.

Ianthe: I hate her! I knew she wasn't good when I first heard about her but then after Rhys let Feyre into his mind I couldn't shake the feeling that she was more than a little power hungry. What a horrible, yet amazing villian.

The King: How terribly wicked his is. Or is he controlled by the cauldron as much as he controls it.

Moments to Remember: 
Pg. 117
"I was burning through books every day- stories about people and places I'd never heard of. They were perhaps the only thing that kept me teetering into utter despair."

Pg. 495
"'You were in love with him; you were going to marry him. And then you... you were enduring everything and it didn't feel right to tell you.'"

Final Line: "And so Tamlin unwittingly led the High Lady of the Night Court into the heart of his territory."

Genre: Fantasy, Middle Grade, Graphic Novel, Adventure
Pages: 199
Publisher: GRAPHIX

Meanwhile, the Voice of  Emily's Amulet is getting stronger, and thretens to overtake her completely."

My Rating: 5/5

Holy moly. So I bought this book (the last copy at McNally Robinson) and tried to save it for a while, but I couldn't wait any longer I needed to know. Had to have it and know what happens. You know to my characters, my babies. And this instalment did not disappoint. I loved it. I think that this story line has expanded so much from the middle grade story we started with. I've fallen in love with the plot, the world and the characters. Unfortunately the next book isn't set for release until 2017, or 2018. One of the two. Can't wait to see where Kazu Kibuishi will take this story next.

Books and Series That I'm Ashamed I Haven't Read Yet

Hey guys, it's me again.

So if you've been here for a while you know that I'm pretty late to the party on almost everything. While I love a good new release, I usually let most slip through the cracks. So that being said, I've lost touch with what's super popular. That is until I found a huge booktube and goodreads community. So let's find out what I'm ashamed about (Ps. this is in no particular order, it's just a list... again I know... terrible).

The Kiss of Deception Series by Mary F. Pearson :
 I have it on my shelf and I see it in it's beautiful place and think why don't I pick you up and then get distracted by the jenga stand on my night table. 

Fangirl by Rainbow RowellI really didn't know anything about this book until earlier this year but now that I realize it deals with social anxiety I've got to read it.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo:
She is finishing her most recent duology and I'm so behind ahhhh.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas:
This is by far one of the worst ones. And yes, I've read ACOTAR and hope to start ACOMAF but it's taking a while and I'm intimidated. Once again on my shelf.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
And I can just sense people starting to loose their you know what! Ugh... I'm sorry

The Raven Cycle by Meggie Stiefvator
No excuses.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This has caused some family arguments.... 

A little bonus (I flinched as I wrote it)... I also haven't finished The Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare and haven't started any of her other work..

Please comment down below which of these horribly shameful books I should start with to redeem myself..

Thanks for reading,

My Rating: 4.5/5

So I've read this book in the course of a few days because I had a beautiful stomach flu. Yay for working with children. But anyways I thought that this book was an excellent fantasy read. It was action packed and filled with characters that are unique. I will say that there are a few things in this book that I found to be bothersome. One of them is just a pet peeve I have about many books which I'll explain further in the spoiler. This being said, it didn't get a full 5/5 just based on these feelings (I know the emotion). I found that the action and twists really kept me interested in the story of both our main characters. I also found that there were many characters that made me wonder more about the world and the its past. I also wonder about many characters past that we won't have the opportunity to see, unless it digs deeper in the next book (which I plan to pick up very soon). I can't wait to continue the story and see what happens with the characters we know, and am hopeful in exploring a change of setting.

Thanks for reading,

Spoiler: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I found that over the time that I've been sick, I've been reading slowly. But I'm really glad that I picked up this story this weekend before the stomach flu hit. I think that I really found this story amazing to read and it helped me remember my love of ya fantasy. I found that the setting was really interesting and it really helped me to imagine what was going on as it was well described.
I also found that there were so many characters I was curious about as well as the two main characters. I also found it interesting that they weren't always interacting with each other that it showed so much more of both of those lives. As I discussed in the review I have a pet peeve about when characters say they can sense death in a family, or when they say they would know if someone was dead. Drives we crazy.

Elias: I really enjoyed his character. I thought that him trying to break free of who he was was entertaining. I also found that he was a loving and compassionate character. He was able to see what was right through all the wrong around him. I hope that he'll be able to stay just friends with Laia. Tbh I was cheering for Helene.

Laia: I found that her character was interesting and I could relate to how she wanted to be strong but constantly found herself weak. I envy her for putting her family first. I found that she was stronger than I thought she could be by breaking out Elias and saving Izzi.

Helene: I think that Helene is a really interesting character. She was kickass and not worried about anything. I really loved her. I was chanting for her and Elias but when it didn't work out, I'm super worried about what she's going to become with Marcus.

Cook: I want to know her backstory.

Izzi: I want to know all about her past and everything and what happened to her family. She's a strong girl after seeing so much.

Spiro: Who is he? What does he want?

Marcus: What a sick bastard. A sexist, rude creep. I hate him. And I hope he pays for killing his brother.

Zak: When he spoke of his brother it broke his heart.

Commodante: She's heartless and evil. She's a snake and needs to be watched no matter what. 

Moments to Remember:
Pg. 77
"'Let go of my hair, ' she says. 'Or I'll relieve you of your manhood.'"

Final Line: "Into freedom."

Book Review: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Title: Passenger
Author: Alexandra Bracken
Series: Passenger Series (Book #1)
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction
Pages: 489
Publisher: Hyperion
Year Published: 2016
First Line: "As they ascended, retreating farther from winding trails that marked the way to nearby villages, the world opened to him in its purest form: silent, ancient and mysterious."

"Passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has travelled not just miles but years from home. And she's inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she's never heard off. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods- a powerful family in the colonies- and the servitude he's known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can't escape and the family that won't let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas' passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them- whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveller who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods' grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home... forever."

My Rating: 3/5

So when I first started watching booktube this year (I know where have I been) this book was all the rage. It came out and everyone was talking about Alexandra Bracken and her past series. They also talked about the cover, which let's be real is really beautiful. They weren't wrong there. This being said, I don't really watch reviews because I like to go into a book as blind as possible. So little did I know that this book does not have some of the best ratings. I found this read to be a solid mah. It was okay. I didn't love it, I didn't hate it. It was just kind of there. I found myself reading it and hoping that it would get better as I continued to read, but then I just realized the only thing gripping my attention was getting to the end. I also found that the characters were difficult to cheer forward and I struggled to build an attachment towards them. This first installment just wasn't for me and while others found the ending redeeming, I found that it stopped short for my liking. All of this being said, I don't see myself picking up the sequel which is set to release next year, although if I stumbled across it in my travels I may attempt to pick it up.

A reminder that these are my own personal opinions and I encourage you to make your own by reading this book.

Thanks for reading,

Spoiler: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

So this book was huge on booktube when it came out as well as bookstagram. And I found myself intrigued by the idea of time travel as well as the beautiful cover (no shame). As I started it I found myself interested in the first two chapters but loosing interest throughout as the writing style just didn't seem to flow for me. I found myself skimming pages to get through the story and really reading as quickly as I could to get it over with. As time passed I honestly didn't feel like reading because I knew I had to finish this book. It was a solid ok read for me. There were parts that I really enjoyed. Like exploring different places and different times from the perspectives of a man of colour and a woman. I also thought that the family history of all the families was interesting. This being said, it didn't make up for my disinterest in the characters and my dislike of the romance in this book. 

Etta: I find that Etta wasn't that interesting of a character to follow. I liked that we got to see the families pasts from her perspective as she knew nothing about time travel, but as the story went on I found that her instant love with Nicholas just didn't do it for me. I thought that it was a weak relationship and not well built. She also annoyed me with her thoughts, but this doesn't mean I wasn't surprised when we thought that she died. The turn around on that didn't do much for me though.

Nicholas: I liked him a lot more than Etta, I think that throwing in the idea of a man of colour in certain time periods was an important and daring idea of the authors. That being said, I also found him to be quit annoying. I didn't find myself attached to him, and don't care to continue the story about him or Etta.

Sophia: She was just kind of there in my mind. Even with the ending involving her I didn't really care, wasn't really surprised. Especially not when she was stupid enough to pair up with the Thorns. Mah.

Rose: Not really a character I enjoyed. Thought she was a bit to cold as a mother all in all.

Alice: The only character I really enjoyed. She was pleasant and fun. 

Hall: I liked his character and demeanour with the crew. As well as the idea of not going along with something you believe is wrong.

Cyrus: Who doesn't power? Obviously the villain. Obviously doesn't take no for an answer. But power over your one true love, doesn't really make alot of sense to me. Didn't fear him that much, but thought we would run into him during the time travelling that Etta and Nicholas took part in.

Moments to Remember:
Pg.  157
"'...I wanted to ask if you remembered Hall's wife, Anne- what he said of her?'
'I only remember what happened when she passed,' he lied. A long year, in which they had chased Hall from tavern to tavern and hadn't spent a single day on a ship. He'd had no idea a man so large and powerful, who'd fought and survived a thousand battles, could be broken into so many pieces when his lady took ill.
'Liar,' Chase said, not unkindly. 'He said he'd never remarry because he'd never find another lady that fit so neatly at his side. He called her his equal in spirit.'"

Final Line: "'Look lively,' he said. 'We've a journey to make.'"

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas


Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Series/Novel: A Court of Thorns and Roses Series (Book #1)
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Romance, New Age
Pages: 416
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Year Published: 2015
First Line: "The forest had become a labyrinth of snow and ice."

"When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal but Tamlin- one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As Feyre dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transforms from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands in growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it... or doom Tamlin- and his world- forever."

My Rating: 5/5

So I've never read a Sarah J. Maas novel. You can start booing now. But I finally did it! And wow, I understand why the reading community is in love with her writing. I think that the detail put into this book is one of the reasons I really enjoyed it. I knew that it was a retelling of Beauty and The Beast but I really enjoyed how she made it her own type of tale. I thought that the characters were interesting and easy to love. I also found that the setting was interesting. The different areas in this world was something really interesting to me. I think that further exploring this world in the next book (which is a behemoth) will be another chance to learn more about the different areas and the different characters within them. I can't wait! I'm hoping to order it online soon! I would like to mention that this book has adult content that may be a little too much for younger readers, but that is up to your discretion. 

Thanks for reading,

Spoiler: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

So if you don't like retellings or fantasy, I would suggest you just skip over this one.. But if you like these things or are interested in trying it out I would suggest this book. As mentioned in the review this book has adult content such as sexual scenes, etc. I think that this really added to the book and was done tastefully. I also found that the way this book was written it was very interesting to see how it related to Beauty and The Beast. I think that the way the world building was incredible and detailed. This being said, we don't know everything about the Fae lands all in all. Although I think that we will see more of the realms (?) in the next book.  Also those characters that you can fall in love with though. If you've read this who are you shipping together? Tell me in the comments.

Feyre: I think that she was an interesting character to follow and watch. The way she thinks about those around her and was strong enough to take care of those around her through a struggle. Never mind take care of them, how about deal with their spoiled little selves. I also enjoyed watching her fall in love with Tamlin. She was a tough cookie and I'm sure will continue to be. That being said, I believe that she will fall into a darkness with the next book after the guilt at the end of the book.

Tamlin: I ship them. Ok I said it. I'm hip and know things. I think that Tamlin is the obvious choice. I really loved him as a character. He was caring and smart and sweet. I liked that he could be wild and crazy but at other times he was putty in Feyre's hands. I enjoyed it so much. 

Lucien: I think he was a fun character to read about although he had a tragic past. He treated Feyre like an average person, teasing her and taking care of her at the same time. I wonder what he will do in the next book.

Amarantha: So being a brat didn't get her what she wanted. The obvious villain in this book and what a good one. She was great and evil. I wonder more and more about who will replace her in A Court of Mist and Fury.

Rhysand: I understand why people ship them, but I just don't know if I like him yet. I guess the once a month visits will tell. I think that he was helpful, but was that only to get what he wanted or was it because he was drawn into her.

Nesta: Still don't like her. Don't think I ever will. But I do wonder why the glamour didn't work on her.

Moments to Remember:
Final Line: "'Let's go home,' I said, and took his hand."

August Wrap Up

I know. I'm doing something new. I thought it would be fun to recap on what I've read this month and then prepare a TBR for September.

I can hardly believe that another month has passed and I think I had a great start to a reading month but near the end of the month have entered a slump.

The Books I've Finished This Month Are:

   Image result for amulet #1  Image result for amulet #2

Image result for amulet #3  Image result for amulet #4Image result for amulet 5

I can't wait to continue reading this upcoming month and hope to post a tbr soon.

Thanks for reading,
