Review: Fifty Shames of Earl Grey by Fanny Merkin


Rate:
3/5

Young, arrogant, tycoon Earl Grey seduces the na├»ve coed Anna Steal with his overpowering good looks and staggering amounts of money, but will she be able to get past his fifty shames, including shopping at Walmart on Saturdays, bondage with handcuffs, and his love of BDSM (Bards, Dragons, Sorcery, and Magick)? Or will his dark secrets and constant smirking drive her over the edge? 

Review:
I had high hopes for it and I was actually dissapointed by it. Sure it had its funny parts and things that I honestly thought about when I read the Fifty Shades series. (Like how Anna went through college without a computer. I use a computer for ALL my work, often times my work can ONLY be done on a computer >.>) But the humor in it was a little crude at points and it wasnt what I could consider particularly funny. I dont know if it was just me but sometimes I just found it offensive at parts. I liked it for some points that it made, it had very plain mockings towards E.L James and I found it funny but other times I just wanted to put the book down and never pick it up again XD It was such a short book I couldnt bring myself to just ditch it. It was a bit hard to finish XD

Recommend it?
I mean.. Its a fast read.. But it had some hard humor.. I dont think its for everyone. I personally wouldnt recommend it to my friends... So no, not really I wouldnt recommend it.

Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth


Rate:
4/5

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered - fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she's known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris's new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningliess. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend to complexities of human nature - and of herself - while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Review:
Im struggling to get my proper thoughts on this book without spoiling anything. I will try my best though.
WHYYYYYYY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO US?! It was just cruel. Let me explain my rating. Its the best one out of the series, but it played with my feelings so badly that I took it down a star. Okay. Tris.... I love that fourtris is so playful in this one, but at the same time, so much more drama between them. Tris is kind of irritating in the middle, but... So strong at the same time. Caleb... He starts to get his shit together so yay for that. ... IDK what else to say without spoiling D: just.... agh

Recommend it?
If you want to die emotionally.. Yes, read it

Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth


Rate:
4/5

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so

Review:
This one was not as good for me as the first book. It took me a bit longer to read. It wasnt as exciting and I felt like the plot was slower. Dont get me wrong. It was still epic and would still recommend it but, I felt like not much was exciting until the end of the book. BUT at the same time.. DAMN IT TRIS! Get you stuff straight D: Its like she has a death wish or something! There is something seriously wrong with her or something. Playing with my feelings like that. 

Recommend it?
Duh, you have to finish a series :D

Review: Oxyn Webb Book #1 By Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz


WARNING: MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS!

This was totally a first! I loved it! Where to begin? First off, the story is kind of like watching a show, and like.. its even split into "episodes" which was new to me, but I really liked it. I was actually going to publish my reviews like that, by episodes. Maybe Ill do that in the future n.n So the book start off with 3 different stories of 3 different people. The main characters being Onyx Webb the artist, Juniper Cole the prodigy and Koda Mulvaney the billionaire and of course, there are more people in their little worlds, which by the way are all set in different time periods. Then you get to know the characters slowly and you get other points of views in later parts of the books. I'm REALLY trying not to spoil anything XD But anyways, so like slowly you start to realize that their stories are related somehow. They are in different time periods, how can this be you ask? Ghosts. That's how. Onyx is dead annnnnddd other stuff happens. Question is, how did it happen? How are they all connected? Who is the girl in the mirror that Koda saw? What girl? Read to find out what i'm talking about.

Final Thoughts: So like, I just love the way that the books will be released, the whole episodes thing is up my alley,. Its just like waiting for a TV show to air you know exactly when its coming and you just cant wait. There is a bunch of drama in this book, I honestly think that it appeals not just to teenagers but to adults as well, its not like a sweet little love story in here, there is real drama, there is death and life. In this book you dont just fear the living, you fear what is beyond as well. The ghosts are among the living.
