I finished it! There was absolutely nothing wrong with the book. But I hated the ending. The ending makes me sad. That is all I will say on the matter.
Sorry for my lack of posts lately. I moved and now I have been sick with this terrible cold and it won’t go away. Alas! I just finished The House of Hades and it was fantastic. It was a lovely continuation of the series and now I’m sad that I have to wait another year for the final installment. If you have read the other books in the series, do read this one. You will not be disappointment because it was awesome.
I have two best friends.
One is shy when you meet her. She's blonde, blue eyed, thin, but awkward. She wont hold your eye contact. She laughs in uncomfortable situations. She's dainty and fun. She is crazy and creative. She's logical and artistic. We dont' get what the other is saying half the time because we say it completely differently. We argue, but we never fight.
I've been writing an outline for my novel. Previously I hadn't written one as I was going to allow my characters to take me along for the ride. Yes, I'm aware of how naive this is. I was sixteen when I started, many romantic notions seemed viable then.
As I'm in the middle of my re-write/revision I thought that getting an outline down would be helpful.
I've stopped wearing my headphones.
Every time I take public transit, which is any time I head off to class to finish that daunting Bachelor's Degree that's been weighing over my head for the past five years, I've worn my headphones. I don't look around, I don't look at people, I lose myself in the wonderful world of music and lyrics.
Fantastic! This book was a great follow up to The Girl in the Steel Corset. I think I actually enjoyed it more. Which is rare in a sequel. This book was fun, fast-paced, romantic and well written. I really love all of the characters in these books. If you’re looking for great YA Steampunk, then I would highly recommend this series. I’m looking forward to reading The Girl with the Iron Touch as well.
I just finished this book. I had mixed feeling throughout the entire thing, but I’m left feeling like I really need to have the next one. Right now. Unfortunately, that is not possible. This book was very good. I did not enjoy it quite as much as the first, but it was still great. The characters developed well and there was a lot of action. Then you add in the evil cliffhanger ending, and the book was awesome. So yes, if you liked Divergent, I would recommend this one as well. But maybe wait until nearer the release date of Allegiant!
I just finished this book last night and I greatly enjoyed it. I know a lot of people didn’t enjoy this one as much as Anna and the French Kiss. I can understand why, but I also think that this book is just as great. The characters are just so different from Anna and the French Kiss, but just as colorful. I thought this book was fun and heartfelt and I zipped through it. I’m really looking forward to Isla and the Happily Ever After. Basically, if you enjoyed Anna and the French Kiss, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one too!
I’ve been pondering book reviews lately and noticed that I never write bad book reviews. I then thought about why that is. The reason none of my reviews are ever bad, is simply because if I do not enjoy a book, I don’t finish it. This could be for various reasons, the main ones being that I simply can’t get into the book, the main character bothers me, there is sexual violence, or there is other content that I simply do not wish to read about.
When it comes to books, I really have to enjoy it to finish it. There are too many amazing books out there for me to waste my time on something I don’t enjoy. That being said, those books that I don’t enjoy, might be favorites to someone else. In the end, I don’t want to judge books by whether I think they are good or not. Who am I to really decide that? Even if I hated a book and didn’t end up finishing it, someone else might love it, and I know that the author most likely put a lot of work into it.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying no one should give bad and honest reviews. I’ve found bad reviews very helpful. Its only that for me, personally, I never really have to because I just don’t finish books I don’t enjoy. I also fully expect to receive some terrible reviews when I eventually publish my books. I’m definitely okay with that!
Do you finish books you don’t enjoy? Do you leave bad reviews?
