Twilight by Stephene Meyer
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 .
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
The beginning few books where “amazing”. Would go on reading all through the night. Damon and Stefan Salvatore – love love <3. 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
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
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 .
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 🙂
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 .
- 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.
- WILL. The mutation didn’t hold as expected and therefore wants his revenge by taking on Katy.
- CARISSA. I never expected this to happen and it still remains a mystery to me.
- 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
- I smiled
- I got angry
- I cried
- I giggled
- I shouted
- I felt happy
- I felt sad
- I felt pity
- I fell for Daemon again
- 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.
