TOP 5 BOOK SERIES RECOMMENDATIONS.

Hi there, I decided to make another post about recommendations but this time it’s all about book series. I actually tried to rank them (silly me) but of course that is impossible so this is basically just a list, it doesn’t matter which one is the first or last.

  1. LORIEN LEGACIES (Pittacus Lore)

If you’re my friend and you’re reading this, you probably expected this series to be the first one just because I’m still obsessed with it! No matter how many book you have read, you’re not mentally or physically prepared to deal with everything this series is. Do you want YA awesome action? You got it. Do you want even more action? All kinds of action? You got everything you want. Do you want superpowers? Legacies are served. Aliens? Dang right. Fictional planets? Heck yeah. Love? YESSS. Drama? You got it. Feels? No problem.

I literally postponed finishing the last book because I just didn’t want this whole thing to end. I even made a boomerang when I closed the book after reading it lol. Here’s a brief summary of it I found online, just because I’m not good at writing summaries:

“Nine small children came to Earth and they are from a planet, Lorien, and there is a war there. A brutal race of aliens, called the Mogadorians, have set their sights on the planet and are determined to conquer it. We find out that these nine kids (called the Garde), along with a guardian for each, are important for the survival of their species and so they were sent away with a charm put upon them. Each child is assigned a number, one through nine, and when the Mogadorians inevitably come, they can only be harmed in order. The Garde are meant to be the warriors and protectors of their planet, so they develop powers, known as legacies. These range from standard legacies that all Garde members have, like telekinesis, to more rare ones, like healing, invisibility, and shape-shifting.”

2. Gone (Michael Grant)

So imagine a huge dome covers the world and all the adults are being left out, all that is left are all the kids raging from newborns to teenagers that disappear at the age of 15. You get no internet, no signal, no tv. Animals are mutating, there are bullies, you might die of hunger and on top of everything, they start gaining powers! In each book you get a different tragedy that happens to them. For example, in one book a plague attacks them, in another book the light goes out so everything happens in darkness… crazy stuff like this. I really recommend reading this, I promise you it’s very catchy and awesome!

3. Slammed

If I want romance, I check out a Colleen Hoover book. One of my favorites is definitely Slammed. The last book is not that interesting as it only recaps pretty much what happens in the first 2 but from Will’s point of view. Will and Layken will be one of my favorite couples forever and ever, and probably you’ll feel the same way too after reading the first book. If you want a unique and beautiful relationship, try this series. It also has enough drama and a lot of feels so you should grab all the towels to wipe your tears.

4. Robert Langdon (Dan Brown)

Dan Brown probably writes the smartest books I’ve ever read. Everything is a plot twist and he creates these crazy plots that are complicated but he somehow makes the reader understand everything that is going on. I love how much he talks about art and all the book references and art references just draw me into the books even more. I love the strong female characters he gets to work with. His books are worth it, at least for the knowledge you get from them.

5. Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard)

This series is so good I can’t even describe it. This world is divided by Reds and Silvers. If you’re a Red it means that you’re a peasant and the Silvers actually are the rich ones, they own all the gold and stuff like that. The main character finds herself working in the Silver elite and discovers she has a power just like the other Silvers. Besides the fact that she has to deal with everything royal and people with powers and maintaining a certain status, she also has to worry about the two princes in the kingdom. One is evil, one falls in love with her and this just doesn’t turn out well but she saves herself from any situation. This is that kind of series that gets your heart racing, especially after the first book.

 

I hope I helped you at least a little bit to choose your next books. I’m gonna do some more of these because I just love so many series!!

PageHabit January Box

As of January, something pretty important happened to me: I became a moderator for the PageHabit romance boxes!

I take part in an awesome team and I’m happy to show you the romance box for January. Also, you can find the book review in the PageHabit book club on Facebook.

20180201_151058_Fotor

As you can see, you can get plenty of goodies!

My favorite ones are the sheet face masks. They were the first sheet masks I have tried and it was also the first time I tried any korean beauty items (yes, they were made in Korea). I definitely recommend them! I think I’m gonna get some more because they’re worth it. My face was so moisturized and clean, I could not believe it.

Another cool thing found in this box are the tree friendly pencils, what’s cool about them is that there is sandpaper attached where you can sharpen them, they’re so unique! I haven’t seen them before!

Of course, you can’t have a bookish subscription box without a cool bookmark, this time there is a HARRY POTTER ONE! It’s my first HP bookmark so I was pretty excited! Talking about bookmarks, you get a second bookmark which is too cool! You attach it to the page of the book (you can see that I attached it to Starlight Nights). It looks kinda vintage and there’s a picture of many books in it. It’s my favorite bookmark I have so far.

In every PageHabit box you also get a booklet, it’s a mini book with a short story in it. Very cute and entertaining!

And now last but not least, the Starlight Nights book along with Stacie Kade’s autograph, a hand-written letter and annotations throughout the book. We’re gonna talk about that book soon, I can tell you that I enjoyed it! I trust them when they pick the books and they did an awesome job choosing this one. Also, the annotations in it makes it feel so personal, like the book was written just for you. Review to be posted.

I hope you liked my “unboxing” and maybe I made you think about subscribing to PageHabit, it’s definitely worth it!

Strike and Robin to the rescue!

Did somebody mention J K Rowling? Did somebody say she wrote a crime detective series under a pseudonym?

Yes, all of that is true and we’re talking about Cuckoo’s Calling (Cormoran Strike #1) by Robert Galbraith *wink*.

Rating: 4/5.

This just became one of my favorite things that happened in the bookish world. I had this book “tucked” somewhere on my kindle completely forgetting anything about it. After a little research on Goodreads, I’ve seen that it’s been written by J K Rowling, so of course, I had some expectations.

First of all, Cormoran Strike has a cool name. It just gives you that mysterious vibe of a detective and I could not write this review without mentioning that I love his name, okay? At first he seemed to me like being clumsy and not that smart. Through all the events in his life he was able to stand up and do his job, not letting his private life interfere with his business. He knew what he had to do and he did not hesitate. I felt like to the world he just looked cool like he got his life together, but nobody expected him to live in his office, wearing a prosthetic leg after he lost his leg in Afghanistan, and all the pain he had to endure and the lack of money.

Second of all, his secretary couldn’t be better, for him and for the whole plot. She’s hard working, smart, intriguing and man she has some guts! I loved her! And when you see them on the scene together they’re the definition of a power couple. I hope they will end up together, I don’t care how and when but I need to know that they are together… some time… in the future.

What I didn’t like about this was the length of the book. It could’ve been a great book even if it would have been shorter but at the same time I liked the fact that it was pretty long because I got to attach myself to the characters and it was easier to make the difference between them and all the twists and turns (which many times is hard to keep up with).

It was interesting to see how everything connected in the end, that’s the best part of these books. I feel some kind of a relief every time the plot is untangled.

I recommend it if you’re a fan of detectives and mystery.

Legend and a Game.

You might have heard of this one and if you didn’t then I don’t know where you’ve been. Caraval, Stephanie Garber.

Rating: 4/5.

caraval-quotes-1

It was pretty hard to believe that this one’s her debut novel… like… wait WHAAAAT?! You know talent, hard work and lots of creativity when you see it. That’s what made Caraval. Just like The Night Circus the game happens only at night but what happens during the day, you just have to brace yourself.

I was pretty obsessed with it and any minute I had free I had to come to this book. You just can’t be ready for all the twists and turns and it has stuff that you just can’t figure out no matter what. Stephanie knows how to play. Get ready to meet charming characters, well developed that will stick with you for some time.

This is the only book I really wished for to have a happy ending. I couldn’t take any other ending for how rich it is and entertaining, mysterious and catchy.
The idea was unique and awesome. The thing that didn’t let me give it a 5/5 was the clues of the game. They seemed pretty random and I just couldn’t figure out what sense they have, they just seemed illogical. And I don’t think they only seemed illogical. They actually were. “Surprisingly”, she figured them out somehow and I was like …uhm… alright then… as long as it worked.

I’m super curious about what Tella owes Legend. I can’t even think of something because everything that happened was magical and insane. I’m so pumped for the series!

I really recommend it.

30 Days Book Challenge: Day 3.

Your Favorite Series

Can’t decide between Gone by Michael Grant and Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore. They were both awesome and long (like 7 books) and they were both totally worth it.
I can’t even tell you which one of them I got attached to more. Both authors know how to serve you legit fiction.

Please check them out whenever you’re in the mood for a good long series, it’s so worth it!
