Book review : The assassin and the healer by Sarah J . Mass *Spoilers*

The Assassin and the Healer (Throne of Glass, #0.2)The Assassin and the Healer by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

August 27-30

Meet the Assassin: beautiful, defiant, destined for greatness. Celaena Sardothien has challenged her master. Now she must pay the price. Her journey to the Red Desert will be an arduous one, but it may change the fate of her cursed world forever..


Review- Celena meets a healer Irvine after being punished after the pirate fiasco and she has no idea what's happened to Sam but at this inn she meets Irvine who is a healer I loved this story it was more interesting hearing about the healer and Irvine's mother was killed and saved Irvine . Ivrine was attacked and Celena saved her and then taught her how to fight which she ends up having to use when one of the guys comes back but she fought well . Celena left Irvine money so she could go anywhere this was an interesting story I enjoyed it .And of course Celena was a bassass fighting all those men .

Quotes-
“The girl wore her scars the way some women wore their finest jewelry.”

Let me give you a bit of advice.' the girl said bitterly, 'from one working girl to another; life isn't easy, no matter where you are. You'll make choices you think are right and then suffer for them.' Those remarkable eyes flickered. 'So if you're going to be miserable, you might as well go to Antica and be miserable in the shadow of the Torre Cesme.”

Book review : The Assassin and the pirate lord by Sarah J. Mass * Spoilers *

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (Throne of Glass, #0.1)The Assassin and the Pirate Lord by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

August 21-27

Summary- On a remote island in a tropical sea, Celaena Sardothien, feared assassin, has come for retribution. She’s been sent by the Assassin’s Guild to collect on a debt they are owed by the Lord of the Pirates. But when Celaena learns that the agreed payment is not in money, but in slaves, her mission suddenly changes—and she will risk everything to right the wrong she’s been sent to bring about.

Review- I haven't read throne of glass but I'm so excited to after reading this Celaena is a badass . Celaena and Sam have to collect slaves from a pirate which Celaena is against and plans to free them . Sam and her don't get along very well but they work together to free the slaves . They trick Rolf but it doesn't work out well he catches them but Sam runs and Celana knocks him out and revels herself to be a sixteen year old girl which shocks the pirate. But the Slaves get away but is Sam safe I wasn't to sure but she makes Rolf sign this paper saying he won't allow slaves she finds Sam they hug great ending I loved this story .

Quotes-
He couldn't be dead. Not from the dagger, or those dozen pirates, or from the catapult. No, Sam couldn't be so stupid that he'd get himself killed. She'd... she'd... Well she'd kill him if he was dead.”

She lifted her chin. "I've been shouting for you."
Sam shrugged, sauntering over to her. "I figured you could wait a few minutes, given that I saved the day and all." His brows rose high on his ash-covered face.
"Some hero." She gestured to the ruin of the tower around them. "I've never seen such sloppy work”


Sam smiled, his brown eyes turning golden in the dawn. It was such a Sam look, the twinkle of mischief, the hint of exasperation, the kindness that would always, always make him a better person than she was.”

Book review : The Beginning by Sherrilyn Kenyon *Spoilers*

The Beginning  (Dark-Hunter, #0.5)The Beginning by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

August 24-25

Review - I really enjoyed this as a start to the series and knowing how the dark hunters were created it's kind of messed up how evil Artemis is and that she does love Archron but he hates her and finds her not very trustworthy so he trains the dark hunters and finds one guy who's wife misses him very much and when he goes to Artemis to bargin for his soul and other things for the dark hunters and when he goes with isas to his wife it turns out he doesn't love isas but his brother who is dead so this isas guy dies what the fuck interesting short story .

Quote-
To look at him was to want him.

To see him was to ache to touch him.

He had been built to please, and trained to pleasure.”

Book review : The last olympian by rick riordan *Spoilers*

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book review - The Lasy olympian by rick riordan January 6- August 7 Summary- All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time. In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy's sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.Review - This was a great finale to the series I loved this book so we start off with Rachel and Percy and then we see Blackjack and Becondorf and they go on the princess amdromna and of course Becondorf sacrifices himself and dies . And then Percy sees Tyson and his father and who looks terrible and then Percy goes back to camp . And Percy has to tell everyone that Becondorf didn't make it even the guys girlfriend and Selena . This book had allot of funny lines even with all the death and Percy gets to hear his prophecy finally what I wanted to yell at percy about is he didn't get why Annabeth was always so mad at him cause she likes you idiot and your talking to another girl if I was her I'd probably punch percy into understanding . So Percy and Nico go and Nico tricks him and he goes to see his dad ugh Nico but he gets out. And the war is starting and everyone from camp but the aries cabin is there cause clarise was being stupid and doesn't want to fight . And Percy is having all these dreams and rachel writes his name in greek and she goes to see percy and NYC is asleep . And Rachel tells that he isn't the hero that someone else is so there fighting all these monsters and percy took a swim in the river styx and he thought about Annabeth and when they were on the bridge Annabeth got poisoned she was fine in all and I loved when Percy and Annabeth would just talk and she would just wanted to talk about them but Percy wouldn't get it . And then Percy was trying to get his dad to help out and he did eventually and I loved his parents helped out his mom fired a shot gun and his step dad stabbed a monster . And we find out who the spy is it's Selena I didn't see it coming she died going against a drakon . And she was posing as Clarise and the aries campers do come and Clariese was crying cause they were friends and then comes the big fight with Kronos . and Annabeth gets Luke to come out of him and he is like did you love me and she's I loved you like a brother . there was a ton of other stuff in this book with Lukes mom she lost her mind she tried to be the oracal but didn't know that it was cursed by Hades . Luke ends up killing himself Poseidon shows up and helps out and then they go to olympus and Percy is offered to be a god but he turns it down he is like you are gods this shouldn't of happened if you were more involved in your children's lives so that's what there going to do and build more cabins for more of the gods awesome and Rachel becomes the oracal . so percy and Annabeth talk and he's trying to tell her his feeling for him and she kisses him awwww and then everyone is like finally and they have an underwater kiss this book was so great it was a great finale and I loved this series so much Percy and Annabeth eeek.Favorite quotes“She raised an eyebrow. "You got something to say to me, Seaweed Brain?"You'd probably kick my butt."You know I'd kick your butt."I brushed the cake off my hands. "When I was at the River Styx, turning invulnerable . . . Nico said I had to concentrate on one thing that kept me anchored to the world, that made me want to stay mortal."Annabeth kept her eyes on the horizon. "Yeah?"Then up on Olympus," I said, "when they wanted to make me a god and stuff, I kept thinking-"Oh, you so wanted to."Well, maybe a little. But I didn't, because I thought-I didn't want things to stay the same for eternity, because things could always get better. And I was thinking . . ." My throat felt really dry.Anyone in particular?" Annabeth asked, her voice soft.I looked over and saw that she was trying not to smile.You're laughing at me," I complained.I am not!"You are so not making this easy."Then she laughed for real, and she put her hands around my neck. "I am never, ever going to make things easy for you, Seaweed Brain. Get used to it.” The throne rumbled. A wave of gale-force anger slammed into me. WHO DARES-The voice stopped abruptly, The anger retreated, which was a good thing, because just those two words had almost blasted my mind to shreds. Percy. My fathers voice was still angry but more controlled. What-exactly-are you doing on my throne?"I'm sorry, Father," I said. "I needed to get your attention."This was a very dangerous thing to do. Even for you. If I hadn't looked before I blasted, you would now be a puddle of seawater.”The Council agrees," Zeus said. "Percy Jackson, you will have one gift from the gods."I hesitated. "Any gift?"Zeus nodded grimly. "I know what you will ask. The greatest gift of all. Yes, if you want it, it shall be yours. The gods have not bestowed this gift on a mortal hero in many centuries, but, Perseus Jackson-if you wish it-you shall be made a god. Immortal. Undying. You shall serve as your father's lieutenant for all time."I stared at him, stunned. "Um...a god?"Zeus rolled his eyes. "A dimwitted god, apparently. But yes. With the consensus of the entire Council, I can make you immortal. Then I will have to put up with you forever.""Hmm," Ares mused. "That means I can smash him to a pulp as often as I want, and he'll just keep coming back for more. I like this idea.”

Book review : Black Butterfly by Robert M . Drake

Black ButterflyBlack Butterfly by Robert M. Drake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book review - Black Butterfly by Robert M . Drake
The Black Butterfly is a symbol of transformation and rebirth after death. Drake wrote this book for those who have lost someone in death and in life. This book is a collection of memories and experiences Drake lived after the death of one of his brothers. He promised he would write him a few words after he failed to complete the task while his brother was alive. This book is everything… this book is for all who are breathing and for all who are no longer here. This book is for you.

I loved   Robert  M .  Drake's    writing     I connected  with   allot of the poems  I highly  recommend   you  read   them    




Lost World Maybe that is the problem with the world. We do not know what to feel and we do not know how to be ourselves.”

Waiting Wednesday

Will Caynes never has been good with girls. At seventeen, he’s still waiting for his first kiss. He’s certainly not expecting it to happen in a drunken make-out session with his best friend, Angus. But it does and now Will’s conflicted—he knows he likes girls, but he didn’t exactly hate kissing a guy.

Then Will meets Brandy, a cute and easy-to-talk-to sophomore. He’s totally into her too—which proves, for sure, that he’s not gay. So why does he keep hooking up with Angus on the sly?

Will knows he can’t keep seeing both of them, but besides his new job in a diner, being with Brandy and Angus are the best parts of his whole messed-up life. His divorced parents just complicate everything. His father, after many half-baked business ventures and endless house renovations, has started drinking again. And his mom is no help—unless loading him up with a bunch of stuff he doesn’t need plus sticking him with his twin half-sisters counts as parenting. He’s been bouncing between both of them for years, and neither one feels like home.

Deciding who to love, who to choose, where to live. Whichever way Will goes, someone will get hurt. Himself, probably the most.
