Book Review - Partials by Dan Wells


(Partials Sequence  #1)

Author: Dan Wells

Genres: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Dystopia, Post Apocalyptic

Published: March 29 2012

Pages: 470 pages (Paperback Edition) (HarperCollins Children's Books)

Read: October 2014

Rating: Stars

The only hope for humanity isn’t human.

In a world where people have been all but wiped out by a virus created by part-human cyborgs called ‘Partials’, and where no baby survives longer than three days, a teenage girl makes it her mission to find a cure, and save her best friend’s unborn child.

But finding a cure means capturing a Partial…

I picked Partials up the first day it was in my bookstore. Yes, it was a while ago and it was during a period where I just had to get every dystopia / science fiction novel there was. So, I got a lot of them and most I still haven't gotten around to. Partials used to be on that list but has now, I am proud to say, made it to the read list.

I have to admit, I found it very hard to read this book at the start. I believe this was not due to the book but that I was actually experiencing a reading slump. Once that slump went back into hiding, this book shined through immensely. I was hooked!!

I quite enjoyed our main protagonist, Kira. She was realistic and managed her situations as reasonably as I believe anyone could. Ok, maybe some of her decisions were rash but at least she was fighting for her people, which is admirable in a character and it wasn't like all the characters were heroes. Some cowered, some fought against the good of humanity and some even ignored what was happening. There is nothing worse than a book full of idealistic heroes.

There were other characters throughout this book, Kira's close friends and adoptive sisters, all who had different personalities which made the story so amazing.

But what made this story complete was the plot. The story kept me so intrigued. I had to keep turning page after page, my heart was pumping, there was so much mystery and suspense and shock when a conspiracy was revealed. But, overall this book kept me on edge and I loved it for it.

I finished this book simply thinking I need the next book, I need it, I need to know what will happen. Alas, I didn't have the second book and I am on my spending ban so I have to wait to get the next book and finish the story. But I am just going to have to occupy my time with all the books I have to read and wait out this ban.

I believe that this would be a hit for dystopia and science fiction lovers. You should check it out if it interests you :)


Book Review - Feed by Mira Grant


(The Newsflesh Trilogy  #1)

Author: Mira Grant

Genres: Horror, Zombies, Dystopia, Post Apocalyptic, Science Fiction

Published: May 1 2010

Pages: 599 pages (Mass Market Paperback Edition) (Orbit)

Read: October 2014

Rating: Stars

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop.

The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives - the dark conspiracy behind the infected.

The truth will get out, even if it kills them.

I bought this book as part of a boxset possibly sometime last year. It was really cheap so I couldn't say no and besides it sounded interesting. I know it has taking me a long time to actually getting around to reading it which was a shame really but because it has 2014 in the blurb, I decided I must read this book in 2014!! So now, I am reading these books because well, 2014 is running out.

I have to admit that I was expecting to see a different story. I was expecting a horror, graphic tale with zombies on every page and literally crawling out from in between. That's not the story that I got and I am highly grateful for it. Instead this story is unique in the concept of zombie horror that it only contains zombies for a small fraction of the book. The other pieces of this book consisted of blogging, politics and a conspiracy that would leave your mind reeling.

Georgia and Shaun Mason are our two main characters here in this book and I have to say that they feel like more than just characters now that I've ended this book. They feel like real people in another timely spaced universe that I've gotten to know personally. And I love when that happens in a book!! It is what makes the story a hell of a lot more enjoyable. After all if you can't connect with your characters, what's the point. 

Georgia Mason was everything I wanted in a lead female role. She was smart, witty and even with her weaknesses she continued on. She had flaws which only made her shine more. Shaun even had flaws in his daredevil ways. They contrasted each other so greatly in personality that it was so intriguing to read about them as they both led the blog of After The End Times. 

As I said above this isn't your average survival zombie tale. This tale revolved more around the blogger's world, how it had changed greatly from how it is now and how they were considered in the public's eye. It also revolved around the campaign on a man running for President of the U.S.A. I will tell you now that I don't like politics. I haven't got an interest in it at all, literally even if someone says the word I groan, but it didn't at all effect my enjoyment of Feed. So if you think, aw no I won't read this book because of the political aspect then I suggest you to think otherwise because really it has no affect.

Throughout the novel, there were continuous twists and turns and events, some I predicted but others that took me completely by shock and I mean I was dumbfounded by some of the stories turns. The ending fitting in exactly with that other category. I was dumbfounded, shocked and overall just left in a haze. When this book finished I had that one ultimate feeling that I've only ever felt once before and that was when I was finished Clockwork Princess. I had a gaping hole and was definitely suffering a book hangover.

That was the best thing about this made you think. It made you think so damn much that sometimes it hurt. It made you think of the things that you push back and never want surfaced but still it made you think. I stayed up till 1am last night to finish off Feed because I couldn't handle sleeping without finishing, I knew I'd just be constantly thinking about it. But, then I was constantly thinking about this book and my bereft feeling long into the hours of the morning - it was possibly 3am - so yes my plan of I'll finish this book and then I can sleep failed greatly. 

As you can see from my review, this book really caught me in a way that I wasn't expecting it to and I love it for that. I am eagerly awaiting the moment when I open the first page of the next book 'Deadline' which is sitting here right beside me as I read this.

All the best and I wish you all well. (P.S, pick up this book if you have it or were thinking about reading it or if you've never heard of it, check it out, you will not regret it, I hope.)

Wishlist Wednesday #11

Wishlist Wednesday #11

Wishlist Wednesday is hosted by Pen to Paper and it is where you talk about one book which is on your wishlist.
My Wishlist Wednesday book is...


When 19-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it ... or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

I added this book to my wishlist as soon as I heard about it!! Because damn it is another book by Sarah J. Maas and Sarah J. Maas is just awesome!!!

I believe I added this book before it even had a blurb on here. So when I read the blurb, I was over the moon!!! We have what seems like an awesome protagonist, a dangerous land, an even more dangerous love and then of course faeries. I love faery stories!!!

The cover for this book was just revealed recently and I have to say that I do love it. It has an edge that many covers don't have. I also like what they did with the title having the A, OF and And placed in the O's, it makes it a hell of a lot unique in the cover world. The colour itself is striking and all I can say is that this cover screams danger and that I'm attracted to it. Hopefully, this is the cover for the UK too.....

As for Sarah J. Maas herself, I have recently just read her book Throne of Glass and I still have to write the review for it. I was speechless after finishing that book, hence the long wait for the review. I have her The Assassin's Blade sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read next and I am hoping to get Crown of Midnight for Christmas. I'm collecting the USA Bloomsbury editions in paperback and Heir of Fire has not yet been released by them so I'm patiently waiting, even if I'm behind the hype...

I cannot wait for this book!!! Please, please, please I need it :P

P.S The expected publication date is May 5th 2015!!!

Chills and Trills Read-A-Thon #ReadingCram Update

Chills and Trills Read-A-Thon #ReadingCram Update

Hey guys!!! I just wanted to do an update seen and all there are just 5 days left to the read-a-thon and well ya, I am behind schedule, as always!! I'm halfway through Feed by Mira Grant and should hopefully finish it on Tuesday and then get Deadline read by Friday. I don't think I will get to my last book Blackout but if I don't it will definitely be the first book I read in November!!!

Read-A-Lot-A-Thon Final Update

Read-A-Lot-A-Thon Final Update

I am so sorry, this is soo late but ya, better late than never. Anyway this read-a-thon went really badly for me!!! I only got to read 1 books out of the 3 that I planned to read. I also had a busy college week so that's probably why I didn't get to read that much.

Anyway, the book I read was Partials by Dan Wells and you can expect a review of this book very soon!! Just a heads up - I loved it!!!

On My Shelves #11

On My Shelves #11

These are books which are on my shelves at home but which I haven't got around to reading yet :(

For this week the book is.....


Three angels are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human. They work hard to conceal their luminous glow, their superhuman powers, and their wings. Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and they are unable to resist their attraction to each other. But the angels' mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?

Halo is a book that I bought ages ago. One that I probably should have read when I bought it but well, I didn't and now it's stuck on my shelf. Since I bought it, I've read some pretty crappy angel books and I'm just afraid this one will be the same. I'm so reluctant to pick this up, but I will, possibly early next year when I can psych myself up for it.

Have any of you guys read this book?? If so, did you like it??

'It's The End of 2014' Read-A-Thon

Hey guys!! I was thinking of hosting a read-a-thon for the end of the year just to get those last few books read that you wanted to read or even to get your book pressies read.

Anyway I was planning on having the read-a-thon from December 20th to December 31st.

For the read-a-thon, there will be no genres in which you have to read meaning you don't have to read wintery or Christmas books. Each day there will be a different game or puzzle or something.

So ya, what this post is about is really how many of you guys would be interested in participating and would any of you like to help me host this read-a-thon too. I'll be looking for 2 - 3 bloggers help :)

****Off the point, but I might as well put it here. I saw this on another book blog and thought it was an amazing idea and would actually love to do it. I'll post the blog name here when I can remember it O.o Anyway what it is is that you join with another book blogger to read a book and discuss it spreading the discussion between both blogs, so if anyone is interested comment below!!!******

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Amazing Noelia over at A Day In Bookland nominated me for this award!!! I can't believe it!! :D Thank you so so so so much Noelia!!

What you have to do is the following!!
1) Thank the blogger that nominated you and link back to their site
2) Post the award's logo on your blog
3) Answer the 10 questions you've been asked
4) Nominate 10 bloggers
5) Set 10 new questions for your nominees

1. Besides reading, what other hobbies do you have?
Well, my hobbies include.......reading, nah, I'm joking, I read the question :P I enjoy nature and wildlife photography so so much as well as drawing in pencil. Those two things would be my main hobbies after reading. I suppose you could throw in blogging when I have the time :P

2. If you could travel through time, which period of time would you go?
I love those old historic times where there are lots of balls and dresses and scandals, so I guess I would go to that time. 

3. The meaning behind your blog name?
You know, this question should have a meaningful answer and all I can say is that that was the first thing I could think of. I'm very crappy with giving things names and well, if I dwell on it for too long, I get highly frustrated so it was the first thing that came to mind and I stayed with it.

4. When do you normally read? At night or whenever you have free time?
Whenever I get the time really. On college days some bit in the morning while I'm waiting for it to start and then at night when I get everything done. During the weekend, any time really. 

5. If you find yourself in a zombie apocalypse, which 5 fictional characters would you like to have on your side to help you fight off the zombies?
Ok, here we go!!
1. Cassie from The 5th Wave
2. Em from All Our Yesterdays
3. Kira from Partials
4. Will from The Infernal Devices
5. Celeana from Throne of Glass

6. Do you listen to music while reading?
No, that would be highly distracting. I'm actually finding lately that I don't listen to music that much any more and when I do want to listen to a song, I daydream, missing the whole, have to put it on again and the same thing happens again!!

7. Favourite book of your least favourite genre? (does this make sense? I hope so)
What's my least favourite genre?????? I love fantasy and historic fiction and dystopia and all them genres so I'd have to say my least favourite genre is Contemporary. My favourite book from Contemporary genre is The Fault In Our Stars because well I haven't read that many books in this genre O.o I have a few on my wishlist now though and I really want to read Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson and Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang and oh oh I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.

8. Book that left you feeling like an emotional wreck?
That is an easy question and it was Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. I've never been so heart-broken!!! I literally felt a pain in my chest when I finished that book and for two whole days I was in a complete book hangover. That had never happened to me and I have yet to see it happen again.

9. Do you hate a book everybody seems to love or the other way around?
I really, really, really hated Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck. I couldn't even finish the book....A lot of people seemed to like it though. Another one is Beautiful Creatures. I read that the whole way through but it was so hard to get through.....

10. Would you rather have a book with a closed ending or one with a little cliffhanger that would imply the possibility of another book?
That depends....If I know there is another book already in the making, or if I have the second book, I love cliffhangers, they just drive you towards the next book. If it's a book where there's no mention of a sequel, I would definitely prefer a closed ending.

The Bloggers I Nominate Are:
(I don't think I know 10 bloggers to nominate but I'll see how far I go :P)
  1. Constance @ Craving Books
  2. Jayne @ BookingAwesome
  3. Bookmarks and Blogging
  4. intothemindofareader
As for my 10 Questions, they are::::
  1. What's the weather like where you are right now? (Random Question, there's a storm on right now where I am.)
  2. Would you ever go on a book buying ban or do you really need to go on one?
  3. What's the next book you really, really want to read?
  4. What is the best fandom ever in your opinion?
  5. Do you prefer books being turned into movies or tv shows?
  6. Favourite reading place?
  7. Who is your top OTP?
  8. Do you schedule what you're going to read or just go with the flow?
  9. Would you follow the hype of a book or steer clear of it?
  10. Have you ever read a really hyped book and hated it? And if so, what book was it??

Michael Grant Event

Michael Grant Event

Yesterday I was at the Messenger of Fear event by Michael Grant. This was a two hour event where Michael Grant talked about his new upcoming book and of course there was a Q&A. This was amazing!! Literally, Mr Grant did an excellent speech. He started out by showing the trailer and well lets just say the electronics weren't behaving themselves, which was quite funny, but worked out perfect in the end.

**Trailer Discussion** - Wow!! I never really watch book trailers well cause honestly, they aren't the best really, but the trailer for Messenger of Fear was amazing. I was completely intrigued and it left me wanting to read  the book even more!! It was, I have to say, the best book trailer I've seen so far.

**Messenger of Fear** - Every word that Michael Grant was saying about the book had me just wanting to pick it up there and then. He had me intrigued, chilled, excited, scared all at once. I just really need to read the book and you all really need to read it too.

Q&A really answered some questions that I really wanted to know about Michael Grant, like how he got into writing, he's writing techniques, he's inspirations and much more. I loved how he isn't a planner and that he makes up the story as he goes along because I agree completely with that way of writing. It's the way I do it too. 

After the Q&A it was signing time!! Me being me I brought all the books I had of Michael Grants. There they are below, all 7 of them.

Of course I didn't know if he would have the time to sign them all but I was said what the heck and I asked and he said of course, he'd sign all the books I had, so I did a happy dance and started handing them out with the help of my dad, who so kindly drove me over 150 kilometres to get to the event and for mam who let me go on her birthday. Anyway I got all my books signed!!!!! Here's some of what he wrote on them.

Sarah, Beware the Messenger of Fear
You are now free to leave the Fayz Sarah

Enter the Fayz Sarah
Ahhhhh!!!! I was so happy when I saw all of this!!!! Especially the phrase on Light because of the whole fangirl story speech which included Stephen King and it was just like ahhhhh!!!!
So ya, after that it was picture time and I was just so so over the moon!!!

And that concluded that amazing experience of meeting Michael Grant and of course thanks to Easons for giving me the opportunity to be able to win tickets to go to the event!!

Book Review - Champion by Marie Lu


(Legend  #3)

Author: Marie Lu

Genres: Young Adult, Romance, Science Fiction, Dystopia

Published: November 5 2013

Pages: 353 pages (Paperback Edition) (Penguin)

Read: September 2014

Rating: Stars

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic - and each other - and now their country is on the brink of a new peaceful existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government's elite circles while Day has been assigned a high level military position.

There isn't much I can say about this book that wouldn't spoil the two previous books, Legend and Prodigy. What I can say is that I loved this book and enjoyed it so so much.

I enjoyed this so much that I was saddened to see the end but I was also very satisfied with the ending. It was just so.....I can't say anything!!!! I will ruin it is I say something. Ok, I will just say it was different to all the other endings I've read so far and that made me love it all that more.

So, ya these reviews of sequels and series books is so hard because you can't say what you want without spoilers. Just take my word for it, Champion is an amazing ending to an amazing, unique series and you're just going to have to read it...
