The Sis Reviews: The Last Star by Rick Yancey

dscn1526The last book of The 5th Wave trilogy – The Last Star. I can’t say that I liked it. It was meh. The ending was weird. Partly it was okay, but, at the same time, there were some things I don’t know why were even happening.

The most nerve-wracking person was Sam. I still don’t get how old is he. Five? Six? He’s acting like he is at least 10 or 11. I just hate him!!! 😑😑😑 I don’t get why he hates Cassie, but adores Ben.

The Sis Reviews: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Well hello there world! The Sis Reviews are back. I don’t even know why they were gone. πŸ˜€ But I can assure you that in these few months of silence I have read many books and therefore have many reviews to write. πŸ™‚

DSCN1592Obsidian I bought last year in October, while I was in Germany. This book was bought under pressure. πŸ˜€ That is, I was in bookshop with two non-bookworm friends and they wanted to go out as soon as possible. And the English section in the bookshop was small, partly because I already own some of the books. (Later I had to spend an hour in H&M and I got only, like, what 10 minutes in bookshopπŸ˜‘) So I bought Obsidian…πŸ˜•

While in Germany, I started to read it, but after 20 pages or so I gave up because the cringe was too huge. And in January I decided to give it a try again, because I wanted to read something cheesy. And, boy, was it CHEESY.Read More »

Top Ten Tuesday #6: Character Names I’d Use to Name a Cat

toptentuesdayI don’t have many ideas, but I’m 100% sure that I would name a cat in one of these names:

  • Chairman Meow
  • Magnus and Alec. Then when the cats are fighting/playing I could yell “Malec stop fighting!” Oh my, I’m fangirling so hard right now. πŸ˜€ I just can’t wait for Shadowhunters Season 2.
  • Dobby
Winky-socks
Winky with a sock. πŸ™‚

I already have a cat that is named after a book character – Winky, house elf from Harry Potter.

Do you have a pet that is named after a book character?

Wow this is such a long post. πŸ˜€

Monthly Wrap-Up: September 2016

Read in September: Sis

dscn1529

September was a productive month for reading. I read four books. The Heir and The Crown by Kiera Cass, The Power of Six and The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore.

Read in September: Dita

read-in-sept2016-d

Not a bad month reading-wise. Three finished books. Nothing too great, but not too bad either. In September I finished Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesΒ (silly, hilarious, sometimes utterly silly, but still fun), Mythago WoodΒ (there’s something really intriguing about it, but it was also somewhat hard to get into) and The Last StarΒ (I don’t know, the series ended, things happened, it wasn’t bad, I suppose, but neither was it great). I’ll try to work on some reviews for those, but don’t hold your breath too much. πŸ˜€Read More »

Top Ten Tuesday #5: Books on Dita’s Fall TBR

toptentuesday

This week’s TTT is all about the books on our Fall TBRs. Mine, for the most part, includes books that have already been published, not new (Fall) releases.

Books On Their Way to Me

Meaning, I’ve bought these ones on TBD and they were shipped out last week, so if I’m lucky, at least one of them might arrive this week. Yay!

The Sis Reviews: City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

dscn1516I know I haven’t reviewed City of Fallen Angels, but, honestly, I don’t remember what happened in it. πŸ˜€ So I’m gonna skip it and review (actually, fangirl about) City of Lost Souls.

I hate it. And love it. I don’t know. πŸ˜€ I have made some notes while reading this book and now re-reading them makes me laugh.

The thing- person- I hated the most in this book was Jace. It’s not that I have liked him very much in the previous books, but in this one he was very annoying, too freaking sassy and too much in love with himself.Read More »

Top Ten Tuesday #4: TV Shows I Wish Never Got Cancelled

toptentuesday

Finally September 6 is here. I have been waiting for this topic since it was first published on the list of future topics on The Broke and the Bookish.

Isn’t that sad that your favourite TV show gets cancelled, because there aren’t enough people watching it? Excuse me, I was watching it!Β πŸ˜’

  • Red Band Society. Ahh it was soo good. Awesome cast, cute guys. πŸ˜€ It aired only for one season. 😦
  • Wonderland. It is an Australian show. I was shocked when I found out that it has been cancelled. 😦
  • Eye Candy. I think this one is based on a book. And since I saw it, I want to read the book, but yeah I haven’t. πŸ˜€
  • Containment. Why isn’t there a second season? Yeah, I know it was already limited event series, but CHRIS WOOD. The last episode was okay -no cliffhangers, but I still have many questions. LOL, just found some article saying “Chris Wood: Containment finale won’t leave fans feeling “lost”.” Umm I felt lost!πŸ˜’
  • Terra Nova. Though now I don’t remember much from this series, I know that I wanted more not only one season.
  • The Mysteries of Laura. This one is a hilarious series. It’s comedy and detective. And the last episode just screamed season 3.
  • Twisted. A nice mystery. Guess what, it ended with a freaking cliffhanger!!!😑😑😑

Here’s Dita piping in with some of her favourite cancelled series.Read More »

Monthly Wrap-Up: August 2016

Read in August: Sis

Read-in-Aug2016-P

Not a particularly good month in reading. Only two books. 😦 I hope that September will be better, though school has started and there won’t be so much time for reading. But back to August. I readΒ The Last Star by Rick Yancey (the ending was heartbreaking) andΒ City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. I also hope that this or next Wednesday I will be back with The Sis Reviews.

Read in August: Dita

read-in-Aug2016-Dita

August definitely turned out better than July. I mean, I finished no books during July, while August has crossed 5 books off my TBR. Woot! I finished:

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
A World Without Princes by Soman Chainani
The Last Ever After by Soman Chainani
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I also hoped to finished The Assassin’s Blade by S. J. Mass in August (because it would’ve fit a prompt in the Summer edition of Bookish Bingo), but I didn’t quite managed that. I finished the book, but already in September. Oh well.

Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2016

Read in July: Sis

DSCN1492

In July I read three books. πŸ˜€ That’s a little bit better than last month.Β Ready Player OneΒ by Ernest Cline,Β The OneΒ by Ciera Cass andΒ City of Fallen AngelsΒ by Cassandra Clare.

In July, I also posted the last two Bookish Childhood Memories posts #5,Β #6.

Read in July: Dita

So, basically, July was not a reading month for me. No books finished in July. Like, I read a bit, but finished nothing. What a blasphemy! But I did have a bunch of translation work to do, which tends to take away reading time.

At least I coloured some bits and pieces in my Pride and Prejudice colouring book. So there’s that at least. πŸ˜€Read More »
