GOODREADS

  • Almost a bit too similar to Four Psychos one might say
  • But aside from the initial similarities, the series would go on to be unique on its own, so it’s not a big issue or anything like that
  • The guys are “numbered” as well
  • FMC has her own “invisible period” where the men can’t see her
  • Overall the dynamic, atmosphere, and certain features are very similar to Four Psychos, but the series is still distinct enough to be extremely enjoyable on its own

GOODREADS

  • Very similar to Four Psychos in its “hell-related” themes
  • The hellhounds men reminded me heavily of the men from Four Psychos
  • Has the “unwanted hero” trope if you are interested in that. Many people warned the FMC the men are not the best choice for her hounds but she didn’t listen.
  • They were indeed difficult to work with in the beginning and weren’t interested in the idea of working with the FMC

Top 12 Best Special Abilities/Super Powers in Young Adult Books

Advertisements

Super abilities are one of the most effective ways to spice up characters, stories, and world-building. This is a list of my top 12 most favorite superpowers from young adult books. That could be because of either the strength, potential, uniqueness or general appeal-ness of the power.

#12:

Katsa – Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Ability: Survival

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight—she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug.

She never expects to fall in love with beautiful Prince Po.

She never expects to learn the truth behind her Grace—or the terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.

She never expects to learn the truth behind her Grace—or the terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.

At the beginning of the book, Katsa’s grace was recognized as “death”. This is due to her apparent ability to be able to kill anyone with anything in any situation. Because of this “grace”, she was used and manipulated by his uncle, the king, to be his own personal weapon to terrify his subjects and finish off his dirty desires.

The reason Katsa is on this list is because of the unique nature of her abilities. The ability to basically beat anyone in physical combat and kill anyone in any situation is never unusual in fictional works, but I remember being really impressed by the twist of how the nature of her power not being dead, but actually survival. It was one of the most creative and well-done twists to such a simple and commonly used idea that I have ever seen, which is why she is on this list.

#11:

Meghan – The Iron King by Julie Kaawa

Ability: Manipulation of iron

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth – that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

Meghan’s ability is very simple, but that’s exactly why it’s so powerful. The power itself has the disadvantage of having a very obvious weakness, but despite that, in a world where iron is literally everywhere, this ability has extremely dangerous potential.

“Simple is the most beautiful”, isn’t it? The simplest things are often the most powerful because that also meant how it has a broader range with fewer limitations – perfect for a superpower.

If enjoyed The Iron King, I highly recommend you to read Winter by Audrey Grey! Both books had enemies to lovers romance with fae princes (with both female protagonists ended up being more than just simple mortals).

#10:

Reyna Ramírez-Arellano – The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Ability: Manipulation of large crowds

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

PERCY IS CONFUSED. When he awoke from his long sleep, he didn’t know much more than his name. His brain fuzz is lingering, even after the wolf Lupa told him he is a demigod and trained him to fight with the pen/sword in his pocket. Somehow Percy manages to make it to a camp for half-bloods, despite the fact that he has to keep killing monsters along the way. But the camp doesn’t ring any bells with him. The only thing he can recall from his past is another name: Annabeth.

HAZEL IS SUPPOSED TO BE DEAD. When she lived before, she didn’t do a very good job of it. Sure, she was an obedient daughter, even when her mother was possessed by greed. But that was the problem—when the Voice took over her mother and commanded Hazel to use her “gift” for an evil purpose, Hazel couldn’t say no. Now because of her mistake, the future of the world is at risk. Hazel wishes she could ride away from it all on the stallion that appears in her dreams.

FRANK IS A KLUTZ. His grandmother says he is descended from heroes and can be anything he wants to be, but he doesn’t see it. He doesn’t even know who his father is. He keeps hoping Apollo will claim him, because the only thing he is good at is archery—although not good enough to win camp war games. His bulky physique makes him feel like an ox, especially in front of Hazel, his closest friend at camp. He trusts her completely—enough to share the secret he holds close to his heart.

Beginning at the “other” camp for half-bloods and extending as far as the land beyond the gods, this breathtaking second installment of the Heroes of Olympus series introduces new demigods, revives fearsome monsters, and features other remarkable creatures, all destined to play a part in the Prophesy of Seven.

Especially when compared to the vast variety of superpower abilities we’ve seen throughout fictional works, Reyna’s is not…very physically useful. However, her abilities as the daughter of Bellona is extremely unique and useful especially in her position as a leader. Her ability to manipulate large groups of people allows her to be an excellent commander and chief and definitely contributed to her high-level of bad-ass-ness. In states of panic and disarray, her ability to calm, unite, and even motivate crowds is extremely useful.

#9:

Carter and Sadie – Kane Chronicles

by Rick Riordan

Ability: Egyptian magic

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. Sadie has just what Carter wants—school friends and a chance at a “normal” life. But Carter has just what Sadie longs for—time with their father. After six years of living apart, the siblings have almost nothing in common. Until now.

On Christmas Eve, Sadie and Carter are reunited when their father brings them to the British Museum, with a promise that he’s going to “make things right.” But all does not go according to plan: Carter and Sadie watch as Julius summons a mysterious figure, who quickly banishes their father and causes a fiery explosion.

Soon Carter and Sadie discover that the gods of Ancient Egypt are waking, and the worst of them—Set—has a frightening scheme. To save their father, they must embark on a dangerous journey—a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family and its links to the House of Life, a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.

Carter and Sadie – being the main characters of the world of Kane Chronicles – are “special” thanks to the special combination of their “royal bloodlines” from both their parents (I can’t elaborate because it’s falling under spoilers territory).

What makes Carter and Sadie’s unique is the fact that they are the physical hosts of gods. This means that they get access to the gods’ powers (while cooperating with them), allowing them to do some pretty amazing things. Combine that with the cool magic “spells” from Egyptian hieroglyphics? Total badassery.

#8:

Nico di Angelo – Percy Jackson and

the Olympians by Rick Riordan

Ability: Summon and manipulation of the dead

View on Goodreads | Amazon

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse – Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena – Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

Nico di Angelo is one of the few children alive right now that is a child of the “big three” – Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades – meant that is also one of the most powerful demigods alive. Nico can summon the dead anywhere at any time and he can command the dead to do whatever he wants. However, he’s not completely overpowered, and this power does take a great toll on him after extensive use. He’s seen to just go to sleep after using his powers, leaving him completely vulnerable. But it can’t be denied how much potential he has, which is why he’s on this list.

#7:

Percy Jackson – Percy Jackson and the

Olympians by Rick Riordan

Ability: water control

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

In my personal opinion, one of the most powerful types of supernatural ability is the ability to manipulate the earth’s elements. This is due to how easily accessible it is and how the generalized nature of these kinds of abilities gave it a wider range of use and fewer limitations. Anyone who knows anything about the PJ series knows that Percy is arguably the most powerful demigod in the entire series. To give you an idea – just use your imagination. From hurricanes to manipulating the water in our bodies’ system, this guy can do it all.

#6:

Juliette – Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Ability: Lethal touch, super strength, invulnerability

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

One touch is all it takes. One touch, and Juliette Ferrars can leave a fully grown man gasping for air. One touch, and she can kill.

No one knows why Juliette has such incredible power. It feels like a curse, a burden that one person alone could never bear. But The Reestablishment sees it as a gift, sees her as an opportunity. An opportunity for a deadly weapon.

Juliette has never fought for herself before. But when she’s reunited with the one person who ever cared about her, she finds a strength she never knew she had.

Juliette is literally overpowered – full anime style. Like, her superpower started off as lethal touch and then somehow managed to spiral into superstrength…like, are you kidding me. She is so broken – she’s completely invulnerable and overpowered with practically no weakness, that’s not good writing.

But at the end of the day, overpowered still means damn right powerful, so here Juliette is, on this list, despite how broken she is.

I also would also recommended this book to people who like

#5:

Bella Swan – Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Ability: Mental shield

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

Okay, I fricking love this power. This power is so useful and actually pretty unique. Its concept is simple – immunity to other powers, the ultimate defense power. But the fact that it’s actually like an imaginated “shield” and how that can be manipulated based on the user’s imaginations made it EXTREMELY powerful because of how now that can be used to shield other people

#4:

Renesmee Cullen – Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Ability: Tactile through projection and shield penetration

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

What is really interesting about Renesmee’s powers is that her powers are both kind of “opposites” of her parents’ powers. She can penetrate people’s mental shields (opposite of her mother’s) and she needs to do it by touching someone (opposite of her father’s because Edward doesn’t need to touch anyone to read minds).

#3.

Rhysand – A Court of Thorns and Roses

by Sarah J. Maas

Ability: Darkness manipulation, winnowing, Daemati powers, glamouring, flight via wings, misting, and (so many) more.

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

The difference between Rhysand’s “overpowered-ness” and Juliette’s “overpowered-ness” is that Juliette’s is really illogical and feels like it came out of nowhere. But Rhysand’s actually make sense (which I would not elaborate due to spoilers). All I would say is no one (and I mean no one) can compete with Rhysand when it comes to power and strength in the ACoTaR universe. That’s how powerful he is.

#2.

Chelsea – Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Ability: Relationship manipulation

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

It was such a shame that this ability wasn’t included in the movie. It was a really important ability to the story too – it was thanks to Chelsea’s ability that the Volturi is able to stay so united. There’s a whole manipulation cycle going on (which if you want to know it’s summarized really well in the Twilight Saga Wiki website) that is pretty impressive and complicated. Chelse’s “relationship manipulation” gave her the ability to mess with people’s relationship and bonds.

However, her powers do have weaknesses. It cannot as easily influence the ties of people that are stronger, such as love or truly deep friendships.

By influencing emotional ties between individuals, she can enforce loyalty, break ties to get people to betray, which is extremely dangerous but also impressively unique. I personally found her powers fascinating.

#1.

Alina and the Darkling – The Grisha Trilogy

by Leigh Bardugo

Alina’s Ability: Sun Summoner

The Darkling’s Ability: Shadow Summoner

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.

Alina and the Darkling – two sides of the same coin. The true beauty of their powers is not just the powerful nature of it, it’s the symbolic meanings behind their power that made these abilities so beautiful. IThe way these powers – and their characters in the story respectively – reflect off each other so perfectly through these powers is so satisfying.

Aside from that, another reason why I love their powers is because of how the ability to control light and darkness in the world of Shadow and Bone is just really cool.

5 Series When the Heroine Unexpectedly Falls for and Chooses the Second Guy PART II

Advertisements

Specified Enemies to Lovers Trope – Fantasy EditionI originally made this list because as a lover of this trope, it’s actually really, really difficult to find legitimate (and accurate) recommendation for books with this trope. I often leave books with disappointment when I didn’t get what I was originally looking for, but these jackpots I can personally guarantee would not let you know if you’re craving this trope (if I disappoint you feel free to take it out on me through email haha, but I promise you that won’t happen because if you read closely at my descriptions for each book, you’ll get exactly what you need).

Throne of Glass

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Series: Throne of Glass #1

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her … but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead … quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

If there’s one author that is NAILING this trope, it’s SJM. She is amazing at launching armadas with her series, but somehow still manages to successfully avoid making triangle relationships between her characters. If you want a book that the end-guy doesn’t even appear until several books into the series, ToG is the one for you.

If you like ToG, I highly recommend you to read Falling Kingdoms as well, something I mentioned on my “What Should I What Should I Read Next? If You Like This Book, Then You Might Like…” book recommendation list since there’s a lot of similarities between them (e.g multiple POV, high fantasy, and characters ending up with different love interests from the initial one, etc).

Shatter Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Series: Shatter Me #1

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

I have a curse

I have a curse

I have a gift

I am a monster

I’m more than human

My touch is lethal

My touch is power

I am their weapon

I will fight back

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

Unlike, ToG, Shatter Me is for those who don’t mind that the guy appearing in the first book (as a villain, and not as a romantic interest), and having the ship starting to form only at around book two (although it is hinted subtlety in book one). This book also has a villain-gets-the-girl trope. Aside from this, if you REALLY enjoy scenes where the romance interest is deemed as a villain and unapproachable, and shows PDA in front of everyone, making everyone gape, this is also the book for you.

Half-Blood

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: Covenant #1

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals–well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.

Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem–staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is.

If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

JLA is one of my go-to guilty pleasure author. Her books got the perfect indie vibe that I like. Not too serious but also not too cheesy. Although they are not masterpieces, they are still seriously addicting. If you read any of JLA’s series, you should know what I’m talking about. If not, just…trust her. She knows what she’s doing…

White Hot Kiss

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: The Dark Elements #1

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

One kiss could be the last

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Basically the same as the last one. Trust JLA to give an indie-vibe book that is an addictingly fun read with ships that you enjoy.

Inception

Author: Bianca Scardoni

Series: The Marked #1

View on Goodreads | Get on Amazon

Be careful who you trust, for even the Devil was once an Angel.

My name is Jemma Blackburn, and I have a secret. I know vampires are real. I watched one murder my father eight months ago, and even though they tried to convince me it didn’t happen—that I’d lost touch with reality due to the trauma, I know what I saw was real.

Hollow Hills is now the place I call home. It was supposed to be my chance at a normal life. My chance to bury my secret and start over. But everyone around me is keeping their own secrets, whispering lies into my ears like promises, and one of them is about to turn my entire world upside down.

I thought I had it all figured out. I thought I had the answers. I thought I knew who I was. The truth is, I didn’t even know the half of it. There’s a reason these vampires are still after me. There’s a reason they will always hunt me. Because I’m not human.

I’m the devil they fear and the angel they crave.

Only problem is, I don’t know it yet.

This series is super underrated. I came across this book during my indie phase (I was literally reading indie books that nobody knows about exclusively). This was one of my favorites. Expect the second guy was the expected villain (not the leader or the most powerful one though). I’m really sad the fourth book hasn’t released yet because apparently, the author put it on hold for personal reasons. I REALLY can’t wait for book four though.

This is one of the most popular posts on my blog, so if you enjoyed this you might want to check out part 1 of this list!

If you have already read some of the books on this list (like Throne of Glass) and want to know what to read based on those books, you might want to check out my book recommendation list “What Should I What Should I Read Next? If You Like This Book, Then You Might Like…”.

If you need enemies to lovers like you need air to breathe, check out my Specified Enemies to Lovers Trope – Fantasy Edition list, where I gave book recommendations to more specific enemies to lovers tropes, such as “I’m supposed to kill you”, “I’m supposed to hate your kind”, “Forced Marriage”, “friends to enemies to lovers”, and more.

I don’t know about you, but I love the scenes when the guy finally saw the scars of the protagonist for the first time and realized the hardships she went through, finally signifying a turning point in the enemies to lovers relationships. If you love scenes like those too, I gave a full list of books recommendations based on this trope in my Books With the “Who Did This To You” Trope list.

You know the book is good when…

Advertisements

When you’ve read a lot of books, you kind of reach a stage when you start to notice patterns. You start to see how certain kind of books behave, and in result, it slowly becomes harder for books to fool you. You know what to look for, so even the slightest hints can tick you, and it’ll take no time for you to figure out what is going on. You also start to notice patterns that would identify a book as good or bad (most of the time, not completely). So I’ve collected up a list of my experiences in reading, and how I myself identify the moment to finally realize that I’ve hit a jackpot.

You get the famous “adrenaline rush”

I genuinely don’t know if any other readers feel this (because I’ve actually never mentioned this to any other reader before), but does anyone else feel that adrenaline rush when reading a good book? This specific kind of adrenaline rush is not achieved through suspense in the book or specific heart-stopping scenes (or cringey ones when the character just does something so stupid), but the kind you get at the beginning of a book, and for me, is the most obvious instinct and feeling I get when I officially start to realize that I’m having a good book in my hands. Is like you get that rush, and that rush signals me to let me know I’m excited, so I know that this is a good book.

Your favorite trope appears

Although tropes are usually regarded as a negative thing, I disagree. Everyone has a list of tropes they execrate (definitely), but at the same time, they should also have a list of tropes they love. Tropes are also useful to help you identify what kind of things you enjoy in a book, so you can more clearly identify what you love and don’t love as a reader. For me specifically, if I ever see a (good) hate-love relationship, 9/10 that book is pretty much secured a spot in I-enjoyed-the-book list.

You cannot physically put the book down (literally, no joke)

This is not a literal device, or an exaggeration, and you should indubitably recognize this as a fact if you’ve ever read a good book. Which is caused by just simply cannot waiting to see what happens. If the book is not that good, you’ll notice that you have no problem just reading the book pages a day instead of books in days.

You start having physical reactions to the book

True bookworms always have physical reactions to books. If you laugh at funny scenes, squirm at cringey scenes, squeal and cute scenes more than 20 times at least, then…it’s probably a good book.

You finish the book in record time

Similarly caused by not being able to put the book down and because you just NEED to know what happened next…yeah, this is just going to happen (it’s inevitable).

1. A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

Purchase on Bookwitty with free international shipping

Hope warms the coldest night.

Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve.

Yet even the festive atmosphere can’t keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated–scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

This has to be one of the more anticipated books in 2018, basically being a mini-sequel to The A Court of Thorns and Roses series. If that reason alone fails to let you understand why I want to read this book…I genuinely don’t know what to say. Why in the world will I miss a chance to see more of Rhys and Feyre?!

2. Restore me by Tahereh Mafi

Purchase on Bookwitty with free international shipping

Juliette Ferrars thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she’s got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

I was very surprised to see this sequel, but at this same time this was definitely not unnecessary. Like all Dystopian books, The Shatter Me series was so fun to read, but still suffer by having that GOD-AWFUL ending – *furious intake of breath*. That ending was so lazy, very inconclusive, and just not…good. At all.

So yeah, this book is definitely a great opportunity for the author to “improve” and remodel that ending (don’t let me down, please).

3. Six of crows by Leigh Bardugo

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.

Okay, so I’ve never been a fan of Leigh Bardugo’s books. I tried to give Shadow and Bone a shot, and it definitely was not good at all for me, so I never finished the series. Naturally, with such a bad experience, I originally had absolutely no interest with Six of Crows, even when I am seeing it around the book community a lot. However, maybe it was because of the good word of mouth on this book and how Goodreads just so passionately had to continuously and repeatedly shove this book in my face, I reluctantly decided to give this book a try.

Let’s just hope that Bardugo doesn’t disappoint me again like she did with her other series. I’m very curious to see how this book would be like for me.

4. The Cruel Prince by Holly black

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

As Jude becomes more deeply embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, she discovers her own capacity for trickery and bloodshed. But as betrayal threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

I also saw this book a lot in the book community for the past few months, and apparently this book was really good. A lot of people liked it, and with a pretty good synopsis (seems like something I might like and enjoy), I’m willing to give this book a shot.

5. magnus chase series by rick riordan

Purchase on Bookwitty with free international shipping

Magnus Chase has seen his share of trouble. Ever since that terrible night two years ago when his mother told him to run, he has lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, staying one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, Magnus learns that someone else is trying to track him down—his uncle Randolph, a man his mother had always warned him about. When Magnus tries to outmaneuver his uncle, he falls right into his clutches. Randolph starts rambling about Norse history and Magnus’s birthright: a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

The more Randolph talks, the more puzzle pieces fall into place. Stories about the gods of Asgard, wolves, and Doomsday bubble up from Magnus’s memory. But he doesn’t have time to consider it all before a fire giant attacks the city, forcing him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents. . . .

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die.

As a so-called Rick Riordan fan, I had been absolutely mortified over the fact that I haven’t read any of his Magnus Chase (and Trials of Apollo books). So I’m using this summer as an opportunity to catch up.

6. trials of apollo series by rick riordan

Purchase on Bookwitty with free international shipping

How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour.

But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go… an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Basically the same reason as above.

7. The Traitor’s Game by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Nothing is as it seems in the kingdom of Antora. Kestra Dallisor has spent three years in exile in the Lava Fields, but that won’t stop her from being drawn back into her father’s palace politics. He’s the right hand man of the cruel king, Lord Endrick, which makes Kestra a valuable bargaining chip. A group of rebels knows this all too well – and they snatch Kestra from her carriage as she reluctantly travels home.The kidnappers want her to retrieve the lost Olden Blade, the only object that can destroy the immortal king, but Kestra is not the obedient captive they expected. Simon, one of her kidnappers, will have his hands full as Kestra tries to foil their plot, by force, cunning, or any means necessary. As motives shift and secrets emerge, both will have to decide what – and who – it is they’re fighting for.

So I was borrowing the other books from the library, and this one was on the shelf next to me when I was checking out. I looked at the back cover, seems interesting, so I checked it out.

8. The Getaway (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #12) by Jeff Kinney

Purchase on Bookwitty with free international shipping

Greg Heffley and his family are getting out of town.With the cold weather and the stress of the approaching holiday season, the Heffleys decide to escape to a tropical island resort for some much-needed rest and relaxation. A few days in paradise should do wonders for Greg and his frazzled family.But the Heffleys soon discover that paradise isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. Sun poisoning, stomach troubles, and venomous critters all threaten to ruin the family’s vacation. Can their trip be saved, or will this island getaway end in disaster?

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

So I was doing some last-minute scan in the library, and I saw THE NEW DIARY OF A WIMPY KID BOOK and I was immediately like HECK YEAHHH and proceeded to check it out. Yes, I totally “calmly” went to check this book out and did not, did not knock anything down in the process of doing so.

So…October is Over. What’s Next?

Advertisements

October (A.K.A) Halloween just passed, as of course Thanksgiving in November is immediately coming at us in full speed.

So…how is everyone celebrating Thanksgivings, my fellow bookworms?

For me, here is basically the one-on-one guide to my ideal happiness on this long break.

1. I got to finished that pile of murder mysteries

Now, I completely understand that there is no way I can finish all my Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes collection in a couple of days. But I can try. And of course, this break would be a perfect opportunity to read those books.

2. Get my blog back on track – pre-schedule AS MUCH POST AS POSSIBLE

Thank you @Evelina @ Avalinah’s Books for checking in why I haven’t post Sunday Posts for so long. Thank you for checking in!

Well, for a while I really didn’t post anything. And my parents – even this friend of my all pointed that out. So that was enough to remind me that my break is over, and it’s time to get back on track.

I’m starting to post again, but don’t worry! My weekly recap would be coming back soon, as soon as I read more books (because it’s really humiliating how few books I read every week, which is actually one of the reasons why I kind of took a break on the recap posts).

3. Work on my coloring book

For those we don’t know, I made my first ever Book Depository ordering on the A Court of Thorns of Roses Coloring Book. I did work on it a lot, and I absolutely love, love, LOVE that book. But I had been really busy lately, so I really didn’t have time. So I’m going to use this opportunity to draw the hell out of that book.

4. Blog Tours?

I’ve signed up for a few blog tours, and I dared myself to signed up as a reviewer for some of them. Gotta get the books done when I have time.

5. Do my ultimate research on my upcoming Japan Universal and christmas trip

I am going to Japan’s Universal Studios for Christmas this year. And I am beyond excited. But I have to be lying that beside from the amazing rides themselves, the food is a major part of what I’m looking forward to.

6. The TBR list that is drowning me right now

Me: Can I see my TBR list?

Goodreads:

Me:

Well, what’s everyone doing? That’s my plan for Thanksgiving, and I hope I’ll be as productive as I hope and can be.

5 Ways To Get Insomnia From Books

Advertisements

This post was inspired by Avalinah’s 5 Ways to Get Book Related Insomina. Remember to click on the link to check on her list of ways to get insomnia from reading.

1. Starting a book right before you go to sleep

Once you start you can’t stop. I learned this the hard way.

2. When the author pulls a Veronica Roth

It is horrible to read a book when the main character dies. But times that by five thousand if you just so unfortunately read it right before you go to sleep.

3. When the author kills off the love interest (or just any character in general)

*evil laughter by the author*

This is never pleasant, but it is not the thing you need to help you sleep.

4. When the book has an bittersweet, bad, or left-over ‘meaningful’ ending

I ain’t taking this bullshit.

5. When you have no one to talk to to scream about the book together right after you finish it

Most Attractive Female Heroines in YA and NA

Advertisements

Because I’m a little bit boy crazy, I’ve dedicated this blog many times for the amazing heroes in YA and NA, but I rarely commented on females. Almost all female characters in YA and NA have at least above average appearance, but in the list below I’m including books where the females actually have legit stunning beauty, and their appearances have been emphasized and noted by many throughout the book.

1. Lucia Damora, Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Get on Amazon

War brought them together. Love will tear them apart.

Princess Cleo of Mytica confronts violence for the first time in her life when a shocking murder sets her kingdom on a path to collapse. Once a privileged royal, Cleo must now summon the strength to survive in this new world and fight for her rightful place as Queen.

The King of Limeros’s son, Magnus, must plan each footstep with shrewd, sharp guile if he is to earn his powerful father’s trust, while his sister, Lucia, discovers a terrifying secret about her heritage that will change everything.

Rebellious Jonas lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Witches, if found, are put to death, and Watchers, immortal beings who take the shape of hawks to visit the human world, have been almost entirely forgotten. A vicious power struggle quickly escalates to war, and these four young people collide against each other and the rise of elementia, the magic that can topple kingdoms and crown a ruler in the same day.

Lucia. She is one of, if not the most beautiful female character I’ve ever seen (or read). And the fan art captured her beauty perfectly (shout out to you, whoever you are. You’re amazing). Her beauty got almost all the guys she came across in the book to fall for her, like Jonas, Alexius, and her even her adopted brother Magnus.

2. Cleiona Bellos, Falling Kingdoms

Get on Amazon

War brought them together. Love will tear them apart.

Princess Cleo of Mytica confronts violence for the first time in her life when a shocking murder sets her kingdom on a path to collapse. Once a privileged royal, Cleo must now summon the strength to survive in this new world and fight for her rightful place as Queen.

The King of Limeros’s son, Magnus, must plan each footstep with shrewd, sharp guile if he is to earn his powerful father’s trust, while his sister, Lucia, discovers a terrifying secret about her heritage that will change everything.

Rebellious Jonas lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Witches, if found, are put to death, and Watchers, immortal beings who take the shape of hawks to visit the human world, have been almost entirely forgotten. A vicious power struggle quickly escalates to war, and these four young people collide against each other and the rise of elementia, the magic that can topple kingdoms and crown a ruler in the same day.

Yup, Falling Kingdoms again. This shouldn’t be surprising because we all know how princesses in books are always beautiful, especially in high fantasy books like this. Celoina is probably the only person whose beauty is even close to going up against Lucia’s. Unlike Lucia’s dark beauty, with her blue eyes and golden, almost platinum blonde hair she is more of an ice queen beauty. She is also described to be even more beautiful than her elder sister, Emilia. Like Lucia, her unbelievable beauty has literally got every single guy she came across to fall for her. And just a note: this fan art is amazing, but although in certain light her hair can be platinum, her hair is more golden blonde.

3. Juliette Ferrars, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Get on Amazon

One touch is all it takes. One touch, and Juliette Ferrars can leave a fully grown man gasping for air. One touch, and she can kill.

No one knows why Juliette has such incredible power. It feels like a curse, a burden that one person alone could never bear. But The Reestablishment sees it as a gift, sees her as an opportunity. An opportunity for a deadly weapon.

Juliette has never fought for herself before. But when she’s reunited with the one person who ever cared about her, she finds a strength she never knew she had.

Speaking of this book, this book is pretty unique for its genre. Dystopian rarely have characters whose beauty is greatly highlighted and deemed as ‘beautiful’. Juliette Ferrars was described as ‘hauntingly beautiful’. Her beauty cannot be denied by anyone in the book, even the main antagonist, the Supreme Commander Anderson. Due to being locked up in an asylum for three years, she was extremely oblivious to the fact in the first half of the series, and was always dismissing these remarks. Warner on her appearance and her cluelessness on her appearance stated how ‘she does now know the effect she has on people’. (Such a shame she doesn’t have a decent fan art. I hope other fandoms can help out.)

4. Celaena Sardothien/ Aelin Galathynius, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Get on Amazon

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes,18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a newroyal assassin

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her … but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead … quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

Aelin is described as ‘particularly beautiful’, which is not surprising due to her Fae heritage (and being a princess). Besides from her eye catching golden blonde hair, She is most known for her eyes, which is bright turquoise with golden rings around the pupils. This eye color is iconic in the series because it’s the most notable proof of her heritage, and is a distinct trait that only runs in the Galathynius line, which proves her as the rightful princess and queen of Terrasen. Like Falling Kingdoms, the Throne of Glass fandom has some of the best artists (why is it always fantasy books that get the best artist? Not that I’m complaining). My absolute favorite illustrator is Charlie Bowater, who is known for her work on Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses coloring book. I discovered her work there, and I just have to say that it is just breathtaking, and I fell in love with all her work right here and there.

5. Renesmee Cullen, Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Get on Amazon

About three things I was absolutely positive.

First, Edward was a vampire.

Second, there was a part of him—and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be—that thirsted for my blood.

And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight is a love story with bite.

Renesmee’s immense beauty is not unexpected or a surprise. Born from one of the most beautiful human and a vampire, I would expect nothing less, would actually be more surprised if she’s not seriously beautiful.

6. Elain Arhceron, A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Get on Amazon

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

The Archeron sisters in the series were known for their beautiful appearance in general. Nesta, being the lion, has the sharpest features (and personality), Feyre is in the middle, and Elain is the soft ‘lovely’ of the three. But because of her softer features that she sometimes was deemed as the most beautiful of the three.

7. Violetta Amouteru, The Young Elites by Marie Lu

Get on Amazon

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Although Adelina is beautiful, especially with her missing eye scar covered up, because of Violetta’s powers, she does not possess any mark from the fever and which obviously highlighted her absolute stunning beauty. Because of this, she is highly adored by his father as an investment, and is always sought by suitors. In a way, she reminds me of Elain.

12 Songs Perfect for Reading Playlist

Advertisements

These are just some of my go-to songs that always kind of reminded me of my favorite books and characters. It’s also because of that I think these songs would be pretty fitting for different readers and different books. I hope you’ll find your next go-to song here too.

1. Glow in The Dark by The Girl and The Dreamcaster

undefined

For some reason this song always reminded me of Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. Like I swear every time after I listen to this song I have to go back and re-read the entire series. The slightly sad but inspirational, beautiful music might remind me specifically of Rhysand, but I believe it’ll help other readers remind them of their favorite characters as well.

2. Crying in The Club by Camila Cabello

undefined

Very similar to Glow in The Dark, the beautiful, pop, and kind of sad/inspirational tone makes this a perfect fit for a reading playlist.

3. i hate u, i love u

undefined

This song reminds me of the harsh and hard times my favorite ship couples have to go through before they get together. And the occasional pain they have to go through. And the lyrics itself is a really, really sad story. Just listening to it is enough to get me teary. Probably beside from We Have To Go (down on the list), the only other song that was really close to making me cry.

4. Angel On The Wing, Wonder Woman Soundtrack by Rupert Gregson

undefined

Wonder Woman’s soundtrack was one of the many things the movie was heavily praised for. And for a very good reason. The soundtrack is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, and fit the story perfectly. It greatly highlighted the ups and downs of the story line in the film, it’s just really great. Movie soundtracks in reading playlists are REALLY popular because often they have the most beautiful and inspirational songs that are without lyrics, which often helps the reader concentrate on whatever they’re reading.

5. To Be Human by Sia feat. Labrinth, Wonder Woman Soundtrack

undefined

Another Wonder Woman soundtrack. Just by looking at the name Sia you should already get why. Like, hell that woman’s voice itself is fricking inspirational.

6. Believer by Imagine Dragons

undefined

This song…is not exactly inspirational, but it’s definitely unique. In a good way too. Yeah I don’t know how to explain it, just listen.

7. We Have To Go, Transformers Soundtrack by Steve Jablonsky

undefined

I love Steve Jablonsky. That guy is one of the bests in the film soundtrack business. He was the person behind Ender’s Game’s music soundtrack(which was just amazing), and of course the Transformers films. Also, do I really need to explain this? It’s TRANSFORMERS. Good soundtrack is literally the only few things this franchise is ever good for. But it is one of my favorites on the album. It’s also the song for one of the trailers for Transformers, The Last Knight. And as usual: trailer’s amazing, film is what-the-actual-frick (wait, never mind trailer #2 was just horrible).

8. Way Down We Go by Kaleo

undefined

I. Love. This. Song. If you guys bothered ever to look at my ‘About Me’ page on my blog, you’ll know this is my favorite song. It’s saddening, beautiful, inspiring, and just plain AWESOME. Not to add on it was also the trailer music for one of Logan‘s trailers.

9. Castle by Halsey

undefined

This popular song by Halsey is unique, SO GOOD, and definitely gives the chilly willies.

10. Firestone by Kygo feat. Conrad Sewell

undefined

Whenever I listen to this song, I always imagine my favorite hero grieving over his heroine, like if she’s dying or something. Or when he’s rescuing her. And before you make fun of me for it, try listening to it and see what I mean.

11. Lights by Ellie Goulding

undefined

If I remembered right, this song alongside Beating Heart by the same author, appeared in the film Divergent. But I think I’m wrong…tell me if I am.

12. Beating Heart by Ellie Goulding

undefined

Definitely in Divergent, not coincidence it’s in a film adaptation of a dystopian YA series, you got to agree with me on this one.
