Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Please don't hate me with my rating. I know this book is so popular. A lot of people actually loved this book and it has hardcore fans but please don't hate me. ^_^

I admit that one of the reason why I picked up this book is because of its hype. I mean come on, every single booknerd in the book community loved this book. So I thought maybe it really is that awesome.

I got high expectations on this book. I really do. I thought reading this would bring me in a magical place where whenever I start reading I can't stop then. But I was a bit wrong.

I don't know why this book is super duper over hype. The whole time I was reading it I didn't have any emotions. I mean, it didn't gave me the feels like the other books, didn't gave me the awesome adventure I was expecting. It was just... plain?

Though the story was good, it was kind of cliche -for me that is. I didn't even felt that oozing hotness in the male characters. What the heck is wrong with me? It was just really plain for me. I don't know why that is.

And I don't really like Feyre's character that much. She's way too stubborn for my liking. There are types of stubbornness in a character in a book. There are those stubborn but still cute; stubborn but bearable; but Feyre is the kind of stubborn that is irritatingly annoying. (Are those words combined even allowed in English grammar though?) Yes. Her stubbornness irritates me to the core. I also don't know why.

And Rhysand. Please don't hate me when I say that whenever I read a part with Rhysand in it I feel like he's gay or something. Like seriously. I picture him gay in my head. Though the things that described him were far from gay. And yeah he kissed Feyre but still. He sure does sound gay to me.

Then Tamlin. Man, I don't know how to feel about him. At first I seriously like him but then most of the people I knew who have read this book said that I will hate Tamlin in the future. Like they want me to hate Tamlin or something. He's character is okay to me.

Yo. Don't hate me about this. These are just my opinion, my review. We all have different say about the same things right? But maybe I'm just saying this because I haven't read the second book yet. But I plan on doing so. So maybe whenever I finish that second and third book my thoughts about this series will change, right?

I hope.

News: I Have Decided

Hiya there peeps!

How are you all doing?

This is just gonna be a short post about a news I want to share with you all whoever is reading this.

I have decided to manage and update one blog from now on. Some of you know I have three active blogs right now, in Wordpress, Wix, and Blogspot. But finally I have decided to not continue the other two and just keep updating the Wordpress blog.

If you must know, I created three blogs from three different sites because I was still starting and exploring the world of book blogging community and I can’t decide which site to stick to. So I decided to keep updating all three until such time that I noticed that only the Wordpress blog has some readers. I mean, maybe there are also readers in those two other blogs but I can’t feel them. No one comments in there so I really don’t know if there is someone who actually visits those blogs.

Just so you know, I don’t have problem updating all three of those blogs. I even update my Goodreads review plus sometimes my Netgalley and my account in My Trending Stories site. I have no problem updating a lot of sites because I love doing those things. I want to be accessible to some of the audience. Like if they have a Wordpress account and want to follow me they can follow my Wordpress blog, or if they have a Blogspot account and want to talk bookish stuff to me about it through blogs they can do it with my Blogspot blog. I want to be accessible so that new friends won’t have a hard time talking to me. But in those months that I stayed active in Wix and Blogspot, I can’t feel any presence there. It’s ghost town for me there.

So I decided to close down my Wix and Blogspot blogs and stick to Wordpress. I am not deleting these two blogs but I am not updating them anymore. Though I still have a tour going on in my Wix blog which will be on February so I will update it to that day only and after that I will repost this blog post so anyone who suddenly got lost and find my Wix blog will know that it’s no longer active.

Also, to those authors who want me to review their books and happen to stumble upon this very blog, you can still send me your request using the contact form in this blog. Just know that I will post my review of your book in my Wordpress blog. I will make sure to let you know if that happens then.

Now, thank you so much to those people who visit these blogs and read the contents of it. I appreciate it so much. If you want to keep tracking my blogging activities, my Wordpress blog will always be open! Thank you so much for reading up to here. :D 


There's going to be a blog tour in this blog this coming March. After that tour, this blog will not be updated anymore. :D Thanks for stopping by.

Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

December Wrap-up + 2016 Throwback

Ola peeps!!

How are you all doing? I hope you’ve celebrated your holiday great!

It wasn’t so long ago when I posted my November wrap-up and now we’re already on the December! 2016 is finally over!

You know, peeps, I didn’t quite like the majority of last year. A lot of bad things has happened last year which makes 2016 one of my not so favorite year. It didn’t help that my least favorite number is 16 so… but! There’s also some things good that happened to me and those were the things I will stick inside my head forever.
