Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3)
The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, called “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love.”

With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.

The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, and was praised by Publishers Weekly as “a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and satisfying end.

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
I have a curse
I have a gift

I am a monster
I'm more than human

My touch is lethal
My touch is power

I am their weapon
I will fight back

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

My rating : 
                                      
In GATHERING DARKNESS, book three of the New York Times bestselling Falling Kingdoms series, the stakes have never been higher as three teams push forward on a race to find the Kindred, the four elemental crystals possessing ancient all-powerful magic, first:

Prince Magnus has just witnessed torture, death, and miracles during the bloody confrontation that decimated the rebel forces. Now he must choose between family and justice as his father, the cruel King Gaius, sets out to conquer all of Mytica. All Gaius needs now are the Kindred - the four elemental crystals that give godlike powers to their owner. But the King of Blood is not the only one hunting for this ancient, storied magic...

• THE KRAESHIANS join the hunt. Ashur and Amara, the royal siblings from the wealthy kingdom across the Silver Sea, charm and manipulate their way to the Kindred, proving to be more ruthless than perhaps even the King of Blood himself.

• THE REBELS forge ahead. Princess Cleo and vengeful Jonas lead them, slaying with sweetness, skill, and a secret that can control Lucia's overpowering magic - all so they can use the Kindred to win back their fallen kingdoms.

• THE WATCHERS follow Melenia out of the Sanctuary. They ally in the flesh with King Gaius, who vows to use Lucia's powers to unveil the Kindred.

The only certainty in the dark times is that whoever finds the magic first will control the fate of Mytica... but fate can be fickle when magic is involved.

Falling Kingdom by Morgan Roydes

Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


this is like my best fantasy book i have ever read so far (i just start reading books btw)
but seriously it is totally mind-blowing!!i can't even stopppp..
it is unpredictable, unbeliavable and unstopable..



it feels like i was riding am andventerous roller-coaster ..surely there were so many unpredictable events happened! and i was just like whatttt-the-heck???? u will be confusing thinking who was the hero, which one was bad and the opposite.
i strongly recommend this book to a fantasy reader..

My thoughts:

Let's be honest. At first I laid my eyes on the cover, it did not intrigue me that much. But I just started to read it anyway because it is a fantasy novel. Then comes the story. At first, I kind of have the urge of predicting how the story will turn out. God, how wrong I was. It was the total opposite and unexpected from the very beginning. I didn't even manage to even reach the middle plot but I have to close and calm myself down. Then I summoned all of the courage inside me to read it back where I left.
This novel follows by multiple characters' POV. The characters are Princess Cleo, Princess Lucia, Prince Magnus and we have the rebel, Jonas Agallon.
First, you must know that everyone in this story is beautiful, charming like the goodess and angel, no matter how old they are, human or inhuman, king, peasant and whatsoever.

Characters :
1. Princess Cleo. She is a young, and of course what do you expect from a princess other than being beautiful. But she is not the usual pamper princess as you often met. I was quiet jealous of her because of her mature thoughts and behaviour. She seems like having a lovely family and they love and cherish each other. But you don't have any idea what concequences that she have to go through at the end of the book. Oh My. Morgan Roydes is a cruel author. Cleo is so tough and mentally calm. I mean how can she do that?? How can she be so calm. and the answer is she has inteligence mind, something like 'you wait and see what i will do' and something like ' you dont know who i am'.
and yes. I love this kind of female proagonist character. She know her place and where to stand.

2. Prince Magnus Lucas Damora. Listen to me Magnus. First, Ifucking hate your name. Second, I fucking hate your behaviour especially towards your sister, Lucia?? grosss!!. Third, I fucking hate your fear! You are a scare, freaking prince!! How can you be a prince? You have the freakin stage fright.! You have no rights in this story to take place.Lastly, I fuckinghate everything about you.

3. Princess Lucia. I dont know much to say about you. Because apparently there's nothing much to say about other than being a princess with the most beautiful face in the kingdom. You have powers. But I hope that Cleo who get the powers not you but we can't change tha fate aren't we.

4. Jonas Agallon. You have such creepy spirits living inside you. I kind of a bit scarred although I am not even in the story. I know you are a handsome looking citizen of poor kingdom but it did not ease my fear of you.I have no doubt that you will someday will be leading a group of rebellions attacking and being the threat of the 'kingdom'.

I like to talk about the characters in the book. It is one of the factors the story seems to life. I love the magic elements in the story . I am sooo glad that this is just only the frst book because i am not ready to finish this book just yet. I am so excited to read the next book which is Rebel Spring!!!
There are so many cruel and furious plot-twists!! and let me borrow one of Penryn from the angelfall trilogy 's phrase " and if there's something that you expect from her ,it is the unexpected "
Lastly, I wanna say that I am so lucky that I know about this series. !! Highly recommend to all fantasy readers! oh. prepare yourself mentally....because sometimes you will find yourself freak out and screaming.

Unravel Me by Taherah Mafi

Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


first of all. i have no idea how people when they grow older they become more idiot.
and i met the people just now. she is so selfish and childish and pampered little kid that need somebody else to take care of her shits. she repeated her mistakes over and over again. she act like a crying baby. always care about her feelings, ungrateful for her damn power, bring up mistakes, doing nothing and just let the time brought it together. being so pathetic and yet there's awesomely two 'amazing' guys with 'amazing' powers fell for her. care for her. i guess there's not much girl in their current world. they seemed too desperately in need for her like she is their basic needs and their next breath. i am totally and angrily shock that all of the characters were still giving her chance and time dealing with her 'mental constipation'. she was like the magnet of all the mental illness existed.
how can they be so calm with her? i was so annoyed that i hope that i can just abruptly jump right in front of her and slap her 'princess-face', leaving red marks, scratches, scars, bruise all over her 'sexy' body. i dont give a shit about her touch that can paralysed me. it seems worth it. and then no one will ever dare to treat her 'pity' little body and let her dying alone,decaying like in the asylum herself. then, when darkness envelope her, she can happily fly away like the white bird, dream come true at the end. so, i will be the main hero in this novel. and the characters will thank the hell out of me for forfeiting their biggest shit.
yeah. who else is that. was there any main female characters exist in this story? hell. no.

adam. i wish you death already. but you are not. you are just as pathetic as your 'lovey-weak-girlfriend', afraid of dying but ashamed for life. no. that's supposed to be juliete too. whatever.
i am so pity at you because you are living your entire life pouring heart to your little former classsmates. you cant be a good spouse you know because every talks you were having with her seemed to have no end, no conclusion, no results except for presenting daily afternoon,morning,night dramas for the entire omega point. i know enough that there's no entertainment there but your shows were actually overeacting, lack of skills to bring out people enjoyment. instead they get to see a love-sick sappy/not sappy, immature dramas in the dining hall, in the corridor and wherever. hey you guys need new director, i suggest you pick kenji. you cast yourselves and acted yourselves. hey dramas are actually not as easy as you guys 'fake romeo' and juliette as it seems to be.

kenji..! you are my bae. you lighten the world dude.
warner. aaron warner. oh my honey warner. just dont affected with juliete and 'fake romeo'/adam story dont you. they make me sick.

fuh.! that's it. the beginning is quiet too slow for me. full of juilete selfish-lonely-no-one-care-about-me pathetic thoughts. but there are two characters that act as the enzyme for me to finish it.
and yeah i finished it. and should i read fracture me? it's adam pov right? and that makes me dont wanna touch the words. i hope sappy juliette will really turn 17 next book. i guess this book stated the age wrong. she seemed like 9.

The Summer I turned Pretty

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer, #1)The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



So I've never felt the real summer in other countries before, other than swimming and beach stuffs. But this book really give me the taste. It's like I'm on a vacation with real lovely families , not to include the hottiestssss.. I love the bonding of the characters as friends and famililes. This book really give me the joy and it is a light story if you are not in the mood of dealing with heavy and serious stuffs. I believe this is the first book of the trilogy but I don't find myself of having the confidence to continue the trilogy because of the love-triangle that is going on especially when it will mess up the siblings bonding because I'm pretty much sure that it will left me with brokenheart! I know it because I love all of the characters so I don't want to experience all of the characters' heart-wrenching feeling.
i felt like i am experiencing summer teen-stuffs, going party and just swimming like i have all time in my life. apparently, i am still here, with country of two seasons. going party which i have never experience, and night swimming where i dont even have the skill of.
it was fun. it manage to escape me from the real fuck up life.
i love the humours and the conflict occured. this story seem logical , felt like i was reading someone's diary. it was warm, perfect for summer reading or i may say you will feel like summer although it's winter.
do guy actually having their period but in their own way? this book make me believe so.
its funny, happy, and sad with perfect time frame.
I recommend this book for those who in need of the mood of contemporary!

Wait For You by J.L Ermentrout

Wait for You (Wait for You, #1)Wait for You by J. Lynn

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


im gigling. im gigling. fangirling.
oh my god. who's going to create a machine where the fictional boyfriend will come out life?
i want that. like right fucking now. my soul is full of jealousy right now.
he is..i dont know..charming , and sweet and romantic and what is going on with cookies and eggs??
they seem dirty. oh fuck you cam. you turned me into a pervert. forgive me for being harsh.

Okay so, that is really a very bad introduction indeed.
i love the novel.its okay.I have to remind myself that this is the 'romance contemporary' type/genre of book, so the plot must be pretty much the same as other contemporaries. You know, the cliche part of introduction where the female accidentally bumped into the charming boy which turned out to be the most chasing-boy-of-every-girls-in-college with angelic face and perfect body. But I don't wanna blame the author for that because every readers especially the girls want that kind of visual imagination play out in their mind.

I like the characters but I am not in love with them. First we have Cameron! Cam is fantasy. He have a turtle pet and that add my wishlist of having the turtle as my pet. It is so freaking cute and he loves baking...cookies?? as I mention above it's kinda left you with something 'dirty' .

“I'm beginning to think cookies is a code word for something else."

I won't see cookies as the same anymore. Then,we have Avery with dark secrets being her shadow. She drag herself faraway from her origin in hope to get away from it, but it is not that simple as she sometimes gets emails and calls that have been hunting her. Then, you know how the story will turn out. It's kinda predictable, so that's why I give it 3 stars. It is enjoyable and keeps you company.

“You are really…”
“Amazing? Awesome?” He paused, brows raised. “Astonishing?”
“I was going to go with bizarre.”
“Well, hell, if I had feelings that might actually hurt.”  

Oh My. He is so adorable!!

But one thing about Cam that i hate  when cam just walked out from avery the moment he knew she hide something and not going to tell him. what the hell? you should be with her dude. not walked away. its like the wildest dream of her life and you should support her and knowing she is not ready yet. she's a woman. not a fucking heartless robot! i was mad at him! but i like him. it just the reason for him to walk away didn't make sense to me. he should be more gentle at least in dealing with her shits.

Check out this book. It is my second bookof J.L.Ermentrout. Did I spell that right? This book is a series of Wait For You series but you can read it  as a standalone as the other books are just connected and have links with the characters towards each other.

ConfessConfess by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


So far, this was like my least favourite of colleen Hoover's books.
I like the idea. confession. its unique. really really unique. where you inspire to paint by random kinds of other people confessions and try to relate them with your own by arts.
But, i think that the love developments can be written better than this though.
the romance was completely cliche like other romance so was the conflict happened.
I find myself did not really into the characters. I did not like the characters but i did not hate them either. They were just characters. It did not really grab and hold me like maybe someday and november 9 which were absolute masterpieces. I love the covers and all the paintings inside. It felt like the story behind it was real and came alive. I love the story between Adam and Owen which then connected with Auburn. It was sad and touch at the same time. That story was the reason why I give this book 3 stars or otherwise I give it 2.

I hate insta-love. You must know that in real life such thing did not even exist.But this book still stick to that love genre.
So at least bring some logic into this story , maybe then I feel it real. As for insta-love , its different thing with November 9. Thats just another story.
I did not like OMG as much as I hope I will be. He was just a random guy who I did not find any special at all. He was just a great succesfull painter at such a young age who suddenly find his ( which he refer as ) fate in front of his door. Then I had no idea at all how the hell in the world he would claimed himself as being desperately in love with her. I can't find any logic in this. How? and Why? Auburn was just another pathetic heroin girl who was so weak to even make her own decision in her life and made others to determine it for her. I felt bad for her son.Her son seems to like everybody in his life. I actually quiet jealous he managed to do that .I don't feel like I was reading CoHo book actually. It seems like everything that make Nov 9 and Maybe Someday masterpieces kind of missing in this story. I am sorry I keep comparing them. I can't help it.

Ice Kissed (Kanin Chronicles, #2)Ice Kissed by Amanda Hocking

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


ok .. so just finished this book after completing the angelfall trilogy.
ice kissed was a good book . but it seemed more like a crime-investigation type of book.
why the name of the book is ice kissed? i had no idea at all. the title had nothing to do with its content. curiousity kill the kitty. that was what you will gain from this book. you cannot hold your curiousity any longer keep you turning pages over pages.
there was not much fantasy and magic in this book as i expect from the first one.
but i still being curious of how things going on in the third book. and i expect better.

Ugly LoveUgly Love by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


3.5
Third Colleen Hoover book and i dare say i did not dissapointed at all reading this!!
it was so good. how can a writer wrote every books with so much different feelings accompany with fresh plots within each story?? i love the characters especially Corbin. he did not play a crucial role for most of the part of the story but i will be more than glad if i ever had a protective brother like that.looking the way he treated Tate ( weird name )
i did not have any doubt that he will be such a perfect guy when he find the right person which was ashamed , not yet.
Wiles Mikel Archer. Wow. A great name. But a stupid character though. He pissed me off like any other male-characters ever did to me. So stupid! oh god.. i cant deal with this guy. He had this some sort of a disease or disorder that need to be fix immediately. go approach a physiarist you asshole.
what's wrong with this guy. i was more than sure that he probably had a strange disorder. and like R from the warm bodies , his strange disorder ( i might say ) was treated by the fucking love from this random girl.
But i love the idea from this book although the plot twist kind of cliche and not so mind blowing as i expected it to be. but i truly enjoyed through the entire book. CoHo really know how to write a story . Sometimes there were other stories that were kind a sort of almost similar to this but it feels really different when you read her words. Her styles of writing will never failed to capture the special attention in my heart. you know it feels too deep to feel like it can't going to be any deeper just by her words.Really really love her works. Looking forward to read her other books!

Frostfire (Kanin Chronicles, #1)Frostfire by Amanda Hocking

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


so this book supposed to be a fantasy book. but the only thing that i found fantasy enough is how the troll systems works. not much magic or anything. but i can say that it was a pretty cool book. it had a kind of bad ass female-character. i love how independant and mature the characters were. the plot was refreshing and new. it kept you wondering and kept predicting what will happend next. but sometimes the things that you put much hope just did not make it the way you want. For the male lead character, i prefer Konstantin Black instead of Ridley. The romance between the two main characters should be written better i think because i did not feel how their love chemistry really works.
