I am actually so surprised that I didn’t cry reading this book. I honestly thought there would be waterworks and I am both relieved and disappointed at the lack of tears.
As the new leader of the Black Hand’s army, Nora must fight to avoid war with fallen angels, navigate around archangels and deal with the mounting resistance within the Nephilim as dictated by her oath to Hank Millar. She must come to terms with her newly-made pure-blood Nephilim body and deal with deceit and unrest at every turn. Continue reading “Review: Finale. (Hush, Hush Book 4)”
First things first, this book is both very heavy (both physically and emotionally) and very emotionally destructive. Do not undertake the reading of this book lightly.
Emma Carstairs remembers The Dark War well. She and her now-parabatai, Julian Blackthorn both fought in Alicante when they were only twelve years old. Now, five years on, they are faced with a new threat. There have been a series of murders near the Los Angeles Institute and Emma has taken it upon herself to investigate them. Thrust into a confusing maze of underground societies and secrets hidden in the darkness of the past, Emma and the Blackthorns of the LA Institute attempt to unravel exactly why humans and faeries alike are being killed by a faceless enemy.

I had never read anything by Julie Kagawa before reading these books. They had very mixed reviews so I was pretty apprehensive about buying them but I decided that it was worth the risk and wasn’t disappointed. Continue reading “Review: Talon & Rogue”

How was everyone’s Easter? Good? Bad? Non-existent because you live in a country that doesn’t force Christian tradition on every single one of it’s residents? Either way, that’s cool.
Personally I spent the morning reading and watching Guardians of the Galaxy for about the 20th time (I love that movie so much). Then I went with my family to Red Beach on Bribie Island where, naturally, it rained (thanks Queensland weather), then we went for fish and chips which were absolutely delicious. Now I’m sitting on my couch and I’ve just started my quad-annual Harry Potter marathon which I do every school holidays.

If you have spoken to me in the past few weeks you will probably have found out that I’ve been reading the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I received the series as a Christmas present last year (thanks a tonne Mum & Dad) and have been completely obsessed with it ever since.
The series follows the adventures of Celaena Sardothien, an assassin with a very dark and complicated past. She is enslaved in the salt mines of Endovier until the Crown Prince offers her a deal, however, this deal will men that she has to work for the man who slaughtered her family and enslaved her country.

One thing that I absolutely love is sitting down with a good book, putting on some good music and just relaxing. You get to just live in the moment and you don’t have to think or stress about anything (obviously this is something that you should do after you’ve finished your homework). If you’ve never done it before then you must have an awesome social life and you should also definitely try it. I have a few different playlists that I listen to depending on what mood I’m in.

So, I guess this is my blog… yay? This will essentially be my place to write about everything that I’m loving at a particular time. Mostly music, books, movies, etc. and hopefully you guys might find some inspiration or just find some more ways to procrastinate. In all honesty, I will try to be helpful and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have anything you want to say, ask or request for me to write about.
