-thoughts- Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

The thing about this book is that... it is what it is.

Don't try to spin and twist it as anything other than that.

Why does art have to be a certain way? Doesn't it stop being art if you do that?

I'm not a huge fan of the genre but, honestly.
This is one of my favorite reads of the year.

I'll hold on to it and share it for as long as I can with as many people as I can.

It reads old and new but it was exactly what I needed right now. In the present.

Loved it.

I give this book, 5/5 5=~sobs hard~too good to be true!

DNF
Maybe another day... I read over half the book... 68% to be exact.
But the MC seemed a bit too idk, her voice just fell flat and after a couple of pages I just knew what was going to happen.
Nothing surprised me, well nothing except the incredible power that Mare has to overlook everything of importance.


How can someone be that dense?
I skipped to the last chapter and it was exactly what I had thought it'd be.


No surprises, no plot twist no nothing.

I'm so freaking disappointed and sad. I was doing so good reading a lot of YA but this book made me remember that not all YA is for everyone and this book really wasn't for me.

The only reason I'm giving it three stars is because,
1. The book title was in and on the book so, I loved it plus the cover is absolutely gorgeous and goes really well with the story.
2. Cal was sometimes the only thing keeping me going with the reading, he sometimes made me think the story would change somehow someway but his passi…

-No one was my master --- but I might be master of everything, if I wished. If I dared.-
I can't write a review for this book.

I loved it too much and no words can really showcase that.

So I hope you give it a try and let yourself be swept away by the great writing of the author and the impossible and unbelievable world she created.

I loved and hated.

I can't get enough of this series but at the same time I feel so overwhelmed I feel like I need a long long break. Even though I know I'll pick up the last book in a couple of hours because I won't be able to put it on hold for longer than that.

-And I realized --- I realized how badly I'd been treated before. If my standards had become so low. If the freedom I'd been granted felt like a privilege and not an inherent right.-
10/5 stars ;)

-review- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

"My name is Celaena Sardothien. But it makes no difference if my name's Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I'd still beat you, no matter what you call me."

So...

I think I made a terrible mistake by making this my second book read by this author after her ACOTAR book.

I liked this book. I did.
I like the story. The tinge of sass it had, the world it made me go to, the way the characters developed at exactly the right pace.
Not becoming too wise too suddenly or too good too slow.
I enjoyed that but also... I couldn't really enjoy it thoroughly and that's really on me and my personal taste because I'm a sucker for first-person POV as opposed to any others, doesn't matter the tense of it as long as it's 1st person. Alas, this wasn't so it took me two days exactly to really get into the book, two days and maybe 10 chapters, give or take, at one moment I even thought I would just have to give up.

I'm so glad I didn't.

"You are a conniving, deceitful hussy. I stand in awe." "You're sitting." "I sit in awe."
Is it weird that I felt like I read the second book all over again while I was reading the first half (or a bit less) of this book?
Because it sure felt like that to me and that alone made me go a little crazy and get a bit bored sometimes but worry not...
Because author Laini Taylor writes, again, in such a way that even boredom isn't perceived as boring as one might think boredom is Hahahaha.

I'm not making any sense but that's because I feel like I just woke up from a dream that I've been dreaming for some days now.

Reading the whole trilogy back to back is a blessing and a curse at the same time.
Blessing because I can never get enough of the authors style of writing or Akiva and Karou and Mik and Zuze and Ziri and Liraz.
A curse because what do you do after this? What could possible come after delving into a world so full of magic…

-review- Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor

"A dream dirty and bruised is better than no dream at all."

I've read sad books... Believe me, I have.

Books so sad they would keep me from reading another book for months, the sadness lingering long after I finished the book.

But I've never quite read a book as sad as Days of Blood and Starlight.
This book was so sad I wish they would've invented a new word solely to describe this book.

Oh, there were amazing things as well but the sad predominated throughout the entirety of it.

It was like a living thing that wouldn't go away even now that I've finished it.

And surprisingly I'm okay with it, if only for the fact that I've always liked heartbreak in books just to better enjoy and take in the un-heartbreaking, just as the author would put it.

I started this book expecting one thing but what I got was another thing completely and it blew my mind.

I loved it so so so very much that I suffered even more for it.

All the killing, the hatred…

-review- Corrupt by Penelope Douglas

Such a dark, amazing, thrilling, sexy, inspiring, weird journey.

I loved every second of it.
All my senses were overloading, my heart beating miles a minute, my thoughts going every which way, my fingertips tingling from heartbreak, my head swelling from proudness.

I can't believe how fast I was able to connect and relate to Erika & Michael but I'm so very happy that I did and that the authors writing was such that I did so quickly and happily.

I read Bully long ago and it still holds a place in my heart to this day because it just was awesome.

But this book, -le sigh- this book had me thinking a lot about choices we make because of rules that others set for us.
It's okay to be a little crazy, it's okay to want more, it's okay to want to be happy and it's okay to make mistakes, you might say we've pretty much exhausted that topic in real life with everything going on around the world... But it doesn't hurt to be taught life lessons in t…
