2017 is coming to an end and it is time to look back at my favourite books of this year. These are my favourite books I have read this year, not the books that have been published this year. Well some of them have, but not all of them.
So lets get this list started!
Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel. Ohhh, a perfect book that makes you scream “Give me more! Now!”. It was also the first book I read this year.
Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel. Book two of Themis Files. Still makes you scream “Give me more! Now!”. And I’m really excited for May 1st 2018, because then the third and last book is published!
Warcross by Marie Lu. I really, really wanted this book, because the synopsis intrigued me and I got it as a birthday present from Dita. Yey! And I LOVED it. I think I’ll have to write a review for it. 🙂
Finished these books last week except The Kill Order, but that’s a prequel (mkey just saw that there’s another prequel – The Fever Code). Well I tried to read this trilogy earlier in the year and in Latvian, but that didn’t go that well – I got bored and I didn’t like the translation, also the book was huge and heavy and way more bigger than the ones I was reading. So months later I asked my cousin if I could borrow her set of Maze Runner. And that started a three/four day reading marathon.
Book one – The Maze Runner. I absolutely LOVE Newt and Minho. I absolutely HATE Teresa, mainly because I didn’t like the actress that played her in the movie and all her “WICKED is good” stuff. Arghh! Let me say that I saw the movies before I read the books. By the way the movies – WTF?! Anyway I’ll get to the movies later. I don’t have much to say about this book – I just enjoyed it and also it got me out of my ginormous reading slump. Oh, and please a moment of silence for the terrible death in the end. 😭Read More »
The 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.
Well hello there world! The Sis Reviews are back. I don’t even know why they were gone. 😀 But I can assure you that in these few months of silence I have read many books and therefore have many reviews to write. 🙂
Obsidian I bought last year in October, while I was in Germany. This book was bought under pressure. 😀 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 bookshop😑) So I bought Obsidian…😕
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 »
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 Zombies (silly, hilarious, sometimes utterly silly, but still fun), Mythago Wood (there’s something really intriguing about it, but it was also somewhat hard to get into) and The Last Star (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. 😀Read More »
I know I haven’t reviewed City of Fallen Angels, but, honestly, I don’t remember what happened in it. 😀 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. 😀 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 »
I want to hug him (Ernest Cline) and, at the same time, punch him. This book… just WOW. I got this book for Dita’s birthday last year, I guess. Or maybe something else. Don’t remember. 😀 Anyway some time ago I read the first two chapters and I guess wasn’t dragged into it, so I just gave up for a while. But now I decided to give it a try. And I wasn’t disappointed.Read More »
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! 😒
Red Band Society. Ahh it was soo good. Awesome cast, cute guys. 😀 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. 😀
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!😒
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 »
