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 <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

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

First I would like to thank StoryCartel( https://storycartel.com/ ) for providing me with this copy. I am not  going to lie ! In the beginning I was in a little dilemma whether to read it now or put it up in my tbr list for the holidays as I have my end semester exams going on . And as you can say from this post the former won the battle of my minds . And am happy that i chose to read because such a book should not sit in the shelves .

This book  like any other young adult novel is filled with mystery,magic ,power ,giants and of course the Blackbirds . But  what makes it to stand apart is that  …(wait for it …) Its a bedtime story ! Yes you got me right . The writing is so intricate and drifts to several fables along with the story line . I think i am going to compile all of the short tales together for a reread . Yes i am going to do that some time soon . It felt so satisfying to imagine and bring life to the words .

The lead character(Colmeron /Colby/Col)  is finely scripted .Emotions are very relate-able ,starting off as a care free prince who loves to prank his brother slowly moves on to become devastated when disaster strikes the door .This gets him clueless ,lost and to be filled with rage only to learn he is going to be the NePrince . The death of  characters who I thought were  leads  got me off guard every time and from then on the  confusion on whom to trust and whom not to made me turn the pages .In addition the story takes you across the boundary through the winter storm , the waving seas , lone islands ,shadowy forests and dusty roads . Surely  the traveller in me had masterful journey .

Did i love reading it ? Yes but  I expected a bit more of action-clashing of the Good and the Bad . We only get  glimpses in the short fables for more than half way through the story . Therefore in my opinion it makes it more like a mystery novel??!

Get it from a girl who read this book in a day with her exams  scheduled  the next morning -It is a good read with wonderful writing and   characters . I would rate it 4 on 5 and definitely recommend to get yourself consumed in the tale before drifting off to dreams .

Thanks for reading down till the end .

How I posted 100 posts in a day [accidentally]

First, I apologize to all my followers if their Mail got flooded because of me . Every blogger’s dream is to post as often as possible. I wished for it too and voila it came true(in a way?)  you all might have wondered how I could have posted a 100 posts in a day.  The reason behind the mess is  I used ”if this then that ” to post my tumblr and pinterest post to my blog . What I failed to notice   (and I apologize deeply for it)is that it had formed a loop pinterest to blog, blog to pinterest.. And for every post in my blog there was a tweet too sadly.. I noticed only after two hours. By then already the loop resulted in about a 100 posts. Please don’t shoot at me! Again I kindly request  my followers to pardon me.

So bloggers if using ifttt hope you don’t do the same mistake as mine.
