Reading progress update: I've read 226 out of 443 pages.

— feeling happy
Shadow Kiss - Richelle Mead

I'm extremely happy with how this book is going. Again I didn't think I was going to enjoy this read just because I'm not normally into books that involve fantasy aka vampires. BUT Richelle Mead has a way with words, her writing style is amazing and it keeps making me want to read another chapter when I should probably be getting on with my day. So in other words, this is such a great read, I can't wait to read the other 3 books in this series even though I don't want it to end...

SPOILER ALERT!

Review Time!

Vassa in the Night - Sarah Porter

So...

 

Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter. I'm sorry if this review hurts someones feelings!

 

I did not like this book. It took me quite awhile to read this book because I just couldn't understand what was happening throughout the book. The whole concept of the book was interesting though,I'll give the author that.

 

This is the type of book I wouldn't normally buy myself, this was the book that I received in the a book subscription service.The other items in the book I found quite cool, the books description I thought was cool and interesting a different from what I normally read. 

 

Once I started reading I knew that I was going to struggle with it. It had these weird characters like this moving hands, a building that had chicken feet at night the would his the store into the air because it's magic. Literally anyone that left the store was going to be killed. Vassa had a magic doll as well. Just the whole idea of the book made me want to DNf it but I didn't I finished the book and it was painful. I'm sorry if other people enjoyed this book but I didn't. I'm sorry if the author ever finds this book review, I guess not all books are for you, this book just wasn't my cup of tea but I'm sure other people enjoyed it. 

My next read

The Dangerous Art of Blending In - Angelo Surmelis

So the way i read my books, If I'm reading a series and I'm really enjoying, I like to read a stand alone book between each book in a series. So after I've finished reading Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead, I'm going to read The Dangerous Art of Blending In. After I've read this book I'll read the 4th book in The Vampire Academy Series. Very exciting! 

All The Bright Places: My Thoughts

— feeling amazing
All the Bright Places - Jennifer Niven

So All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. Stars : 4.5/5.

 

This book nearly made me cry which is why it's lacking half a star. Sometimes if the book was so good that it nearly made me cry, I don't give it the 5 stars that it deserves. I'm weird like that. 

 

This book was written very well. I was hooked from the moment i finished the first chapter. Violet was a character I could partly relate to, Finch not so much. 

 

I recommend this book to those people that are wanting a nice and easy flowing read. You have to keep in mind that this book does contain topics that involve depression. 

 

Overall: A VERY GOOD BOOK! 

Shadow Kiss

Shadow Kiss - Richelle Mead

Current Read: Shadow Kiss by Michelle Mead. 

 

I don't normally read books that are about vampires but I'm really enjoying this series. It's the 3rd in the series and I can't believe how well written it is. I'm on page 180 out of 444 pages. I'm just cruising through this book happily and I already have the 4th book ready to go. This has been a good reading experience for me.

This here is my bookstagram if you're wanting to follow the other place where I post about books! 

""I guess that's why it's called falling in love. Sometimes it's heady and exhilarating, and sometimes it's one of the worst feelings in the world. You have to be prepared to lose control. You have to know that there is no limit to how far you can fall"."
