Hello!

Monday Reviews - Rebels by Jill Williamson

Image
Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing Rebels by Jill Williamson. I received this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange of an honest review.

Before I get to the review, a quick synopsis.


In this third book in the series of fantasy/dystopian novels from award-winning author Jill Williamson, three teens must try to hold on to their values amidst the subjugation and lies of the government.

In this final novel of the Safe Lands series by Jill Williamson, Mason and Omar discover the true meaning of Liberation-a secret the Safe Lands have long kept from their people-but find they are trapped in the low lands with this crucial information. Meanwhile, Levi is forced to turn his attention elsewhere when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and becomes the Safe Land's new queen. His only choice to save her may be to take up the role of undercover vigilante that Omar began, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will that be e…

Top 5 Wednesday - Books I Wasn't Expecting to Like But Did

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Top 5 Wednesday! If you want more info, you can check out the Goodreads page here!

This weeks topic is top 5 books I wasn't expecting to like but did once I gave it a chance. I feel like I stick within my specific bubble and don't really like to venture too far out of that bubble. However, there have been times where I have stepped out of that bubble and I have been glad.

Here is my list!

5. The Selection by Kiera Cass Many people weren't a huge fan of this trilogy, or I guess now series, but I really enjoyed it once I gave it a chance. I got originally from the library and have since refrained from purchasing it because I don't know if I want to get it in paperback to match the novellas or get it in hardcover and be able to buy the new books in hardcover when they are first released. 4. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo Anyone who knows me knows I am not big into fantasy. And this was a fairly high fantasy trilogy. However, I got the…

Monday Reviews - Throne of Glass

Hello everyone!

Before I start off with today's review, I just want to apologize for not posting on the blog last week. As some of you may know, I am in my final year of high school and it has been quite stressful and busy. I just didn't have time to write a post and if I did I was just so exhausted and went to bed early.

However, I am hoping this week will be better and I plan on writing some posts in advance to make sure there isn't a week where I don't have posts up.

Also, I am more active on my Instagram, if you want to see more daily what is going on book wise. You can check out my profile here.

Ok, now that we got that out of the way, let's get on with the review!

Just this past weekend, I picked up Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I wasn't too sure what to expect from this book, I am not too big on fantasy and paranormally things, but I figured I would give this series a go.

And I loved it!

I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did, like I said…

Top 5 Wednesday - Books with Terrible Covers

Image
Hello everyone!

I am back with another Top 5 Wednesday! If you want more info, you can check out the Goodreads page here!

This weeks topic is top 5 books with terrible covers. I have to say, I am very excited for this one, I have quite a few books that I would really love a cover change or books I don't want to buy because of the terrible covers.

5. GoneThese covers are just bad. I don't know who came up with the idea but the old covers with the brooding, dramatic looking private school/public school kids is just not doing it for me. The new covers aren't terrible, but not great either.







4. The Knife of Never Letting GoHonestly, all I can say is that the UK covers are so much better.







3. Perfect ChemistryWow! This was such a good book, but the cover was so bad. Not one I would voluntarily read in public!








2. Pushing the LimitsThese books wouldn't be so bad with the dust jacket off right? Wrong! The cover is printed on the hardback, so even if you take the jacket off, its still …
