Series i will not finish

Twilight by Stephene Meyer

twilight

I read the first book and yes I’ll be frank -I went head over heels. Though I found flaws in Bella’s character I loved the protective nature of Edward(stalking too) and how he tried to refrain himself from her for her safety . All these made me go “crazy” over him. Then I read the second book and um … it all turned dull. If you have been following my blog then you would probably have heard me say how much I detest love triangles. That’s what happened Bella started to have feelings for Jacob and Edward at the same time. It seemed unfair .

that sucks

I got too attached to Edward-Bella romance that I couldn’t wish myself see the other side. And hence just googled up the ending (Scold me … scratch that please don’t :P)

Vampire diaries by L.J.Smith

vd

The beginning few books where “amazing”. Would go on reading all through the night. Damon and Stefan Salvatore – love love❤. My friend and I would have cat fights over the brothers. But when more and more books came out it became clichéd and cheesy . Seemed like the story line was dragged just to get a new book on the stands. I don’t remember when I literally stopped just didn’t find myself to read another one of it.

House of night by P.C. and Kristin Cast

houseofnight

This is the one series that I didn’t get submerged right from the first book. I had my friends talking much about this . So I tried to push on but alas didn’t get past chosen

Ram Chandra by Amish

scion

I loved the shiva trilogy so much. Coming from the same author may be I had my expectations too high. The story line was very draggy and narrative was dull and boring. The characters seemed to miss something I am not sure what. Just feel the writing could have been a little more engaging . It just happened that I dozed off reading this book which rarely happens in my case

Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordon

Here is the shocker . You all know am a big fan of Rick Riordon’s work .Then you could question me why this particular best selling series is in here. This is a Percy Jackson spin off and I am  huge Percy Jackson fan and when I say huge its HUGE. In this series Percy is shown as a second lead and not the first hero to go around saving the world. I can’t read him as being the second in line or even share places .

no

A big no-no to me .  Now that’s why hero’s of Olympus is in this list. I know am breaking thousands of hearts for this. Sorry

Please comment below if you think i should pick up any of the above books and also feel free to mention the books you wont finish🙂

Yours

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger… and they know it.

I am struggling to write this review majorly because I have so many emotions whirling around I don’t know where to start. Before I continue with my review let’s just take a second to appreciate the cover ( the guy especially😛 )

The book starts right where Onyx left. For the first few pages it was slow but really loved the way love bloomed between Daemon and Katy. His protective nature had not budged but he learnt to give her the space. Points for that Daemon. The pain Dawson goes through is understandable and Daemon is doing everything under his alien power to keep him sane. But the credits go to Katy for coming up with ideas that shall actually work. From 40 page or so plot caught on like wildfire.

I had FOUR BIG SHOCKERS in this book .shock

 

  1. BLAKE. Seriously? Him again? I thought he was a good riddance but then he turns up to school as if nothing had happened. Daemon and I did not take this likely. “Daemon curtailed from stabbing and gave the chance to escape. To have a life ! But you BLAKE screw not just yourself but my mind too by making a re-entry. I was better off without your presence in the book”, were my exact thoughts.
  2. WILL. The mutation didn’t hold as expected and therefore wants his revenge by taking on Katy.
  3. CARISSA. I never expected this to happen and it still remains a mystery to me.
  4. The Ending. I was preparing for something similar to second book. Taking on DOD was not a good idea but have to try for Dawson. For Beth. I agree without a casualty there wouldn’t be any teeth clinging moment but …but… does it have to be Katy? Why can’t it be Blake. He moreover deceived them again. At that second I didn’t have to be a Luxen to shoot my rage at him.

Reading this book tapped on my every emotion

  1. I smiled
  2. I got angry
  3. I cried
  4. I giggled
  5. I shouted
  6. I felt happy
  7. I felt sad
  8. I felt pity
  9. I fell for Daemon again
  10. I freaking loved!

But i did find some loop holes in the story line and unanswered questions. If Dawson had been captured and tortured with Onyx for a year why hasn’t he developed any tolerance ? How did the underworld mafia kid Luc have the power to tamper the DOD’s security ? Did Blake have any feelings for Katy or he just faked it all the while? Who mutated Carissa and why ? ugh.. so many .

I have to admit this book had a huge impact on me and I didn’t want to continue for 3 days not because the story is bad but because it is too good for me to take in.

My life as editor Week #1

Hello everyone !

I thought i could give a sneak peek of what’s going on in my life as an editor . It all started when i joined college in fall 2013. Since then i had been part of my college’s journalism club and now I am the editor ! I cant believe it myself . Its been a month since i was elected but still the news never seems to subside. Super excited every time i think of it … Yay!

One of the major task of the club is to release a quarterly newsletter . And the first edition i am working on as editor just rolled up this week . We finalized on seven articles- all relating to my college . And am pretty happy about the list . We are yet to assign tasks to the writers. Usually prefinal years pen it but this time we thought we could bend some rules . We shall be roping the sophomores as well. This news is going to be  a surprise to them! Additionally we planned on some interesting activities for freshers . The task involves the work of writer,photographer,cartoonist. We didn’t leave anyone out (*wink*)

We have our college fest coming in the month of  March and privileged to say we are the media partners and participants/hosts ! Here comes the best of all .Today we were asked to cover and publicize the Tedx event which would take place in the near future . Arent we growing ? ( A smile is plastered to my face right now😛 )

Many hopes and dreams to be fulfilled but for now “Thats all folks”

Thanks for reading down till here,

Until next time,

Percy Reads,

Posting schedule

Wondering who i am ? well i am this girl who posts in PercyReads but unfortunately took a 10 day break from coming online(again) . Or could i say got submerged in a crazy schedule . So as a solution i came up with a complete sketch of my timely tasks and the posts for the day . It goes something like

 Monday – Six word story

 Tuesday – Techie stuffs ( I know this sounds out of place in a book blog . But lets face it i am an IT student . I have this slight inclination towards technology *guilty face* )

Wednesday – Six word story

Thursday – My life as an editor (another new genre am going to start to just brief about the things we do in the club )

Friday –  Book Review

Saturday – a general topic article . Chose to do this majorly because i am preparing for my GRE tests and truth be told i am bad at it . So hopefully this would help things a little bit

Sunday – Week in a review ,tags (if any ).

Ps : if am having my tests then off the hook for 3 days .

I am so looking forward to this . Wishing from all my heart for this to work. Love to hear what to think of this . Would you think this will work ? leave a comment below

Thanks for reading down till here

PercyReads,
