Never before have a book made me feel so much as The Light Between Oceans have. This book got a hold of all of my emotions from the first page and throws them all over the place.

Original book title: Mistborn Trilogy Author: Brandon Sanderson Publisher: Gollancz Year of publication: 2006 – 2008 Format: Paperback Language:English
This trilogy got me from the start! I loved the concept of these books, where evil has already won and starting from there was awesome.
Brandon Sanderson is brilliant in every way. He is an excellent storyteller, a magician when it comes to both crafting plots and world building and lets talk about his characters. You have a bunch of characters with their own unique quality that brings depth to the story. Continue reading →

Having read and really enjoyed Me before you I thought it was time for another novel by Jojo Moyes.
This is a fast, easy and fun little romance adventure. You have Jess, a single mom with two kids struggling through a life filled with nothing but hardship; a daughter who is a math genius and a Goth stepson who doesn’t fit in and is bullied.
Just like the other books in the Throne of Glass series, this fourth book is full of adventure, action, and mystery. A lot of things happen in this book and I’m a bit confused about my review because on one hand, I really love this book and series, but on the other hand Queen of Shadows was a bit of a disappointment.
Sarah J. Maas introduces some new awesome characters in this book and let us get to know Celaena much better.
I found this book being slower and not as much action as Crown of Midnight but in a good way. This book is more about character development and it is phenomenal. Each and every character in this book develops and grows into someone much more complex and interesting.
