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

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

Opal Lux#3

opal-audiobook-cover-lux-series-34383200-318-421

 

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.

BOOK REVIEW – ONYX(LUX #2)

Hey everyone ! Here is what I felt when I read onyx

ONYXAuthor : Jennifer L. Armentrout

Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

 REVIEW

I usually go for a formal review and rate at the end of the post but this book makes me break my routine ! So here it goes –

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

 

Plot – 5/5

Romance – 5/5

Aliens –5/5

Twists –5/5

Character depth –5/5

If you have been so kind in following my posts lately you would have figured how much I loved the first installment of the series (just in case you haven’t here is the link  ). I read Onyx in one single stretch . It had me captivated right from the beginning . And YES !! Damon and Katy are officially in love ! until…

Around the middle of the book there starts something like a love triangle/ confusion. I was like “ Nooooo ! This cant be happening ! Katy please ! you cant be falling for Blake ! His character has shades.I bet he will definitely break your heart if you trust him! You have Damon for heaven’s sake! ”  And Damon turned into all romantic bringing flowers to school, tiny gifts *heart flips* . Though Katy had her reasons for hanging out with Blake I still detest it *ugh*. Raged filled when Katy showed a blind eye to not once but twice over what Blake did !And when he did show his true self, my inner self quoted, “I knew it! YOU traitor !”. At the same time a tear trickled down over the loss that had come as a consequence .

In the beginning of this series I told myself we had only one enemy to worry about .Damn I was wrong and the Arums are little to worry about. The ending was so not I expected ! I mean I did the usual parts but the bang ? uh-huh never even imagined so ! I felt tricked , lied , deceived, fobbed and hurt . When everything subsided there was yet another twist and I could take no longer . I took a few minutes off from reading to get my heart beat down. Jennifer sure knows how to make us live the story .

And its official . Though I have not yet completed the LUX goes into my favourite series of all time hands down with no second thought!

 

Thanks for reading down till here.

Until next time,

Percy Reads,

Lagging behind ..

 

Hey guys ! A little update of the past 7 days . Frankly it was not the best reading week. Could finish only half of Opal (* Damn shame , aint it ? *). I am so lagging behind . Reason ? Been busy planning for freshers welcome scheduled this Monday . Adding to that my mock interview took most of my time . (I don’t want to talk about . i don’t want to jinx it but hopefully it was okay ). But the mock made me realize i am quite lagging behind in my preparation too .Lots of catching up to do !Technically and bookishly ! Now with 100 pages left in Opal hopefully i believe that i would be able to complete it tomorrow . Next week iam planning on rereading Hunger Games . I dont know why but just feel like it (*grins*). And of course ,thank you for liking my posts,commenting  and following me while i was off the hook ! Means so much !

Until next time ,

Percy Reads
