it’s almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She’s finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam’s life.

Review:

  • Storyline: I was really excited to continue this series. I really liked the way the first book ended and I wanted to see what it would be like. I really enjoyed the second half of this book. The first half was kind of droopy because I feel like it was as set up for the second half.
  • Characters: Julilette was kind of annoying at times. Kenji was my favorite. Adam was a butt in this book. I am officially Team Warner.
  • Writing: The writing in this book is beautiful. So much so, that sometimes I would get swallowed up by the beautiful. It was too much sometimes. It was beautiful though.
  • Ending: I’m interested in seeing what’s going to happen next.
  • Extras: I’m going to pick up the next book in the future. I’m not sure if it’s the near future.

Day 3: Favourite Quotes

LET ME TELL YOU WHY THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT, UNDERRATED DISNEY FILMS OF ALL TIME OKAY:

1. It teaches kids that we should never judge others by their appearance or what we’ve seen on the surface.

2. It teaches kids that despite if we’ve been taught to be afraid of or hate something or someone that looks/acts differently than us, we should learn and try to understand them before we judge them.

3. It teaches that two sides that may hate each other don’t always have to stay that way - they can learn and grown from each other’s mistakes.

4. It teaches that hatred is not always the answer; to listen, to step back, and see through someone else’s eyes. It teaches patience, understanding, and wisdom.

5. IT TEACHES CHILDREN THAT PEOPLE CAN BE FORGIVEN AND DO BETTER.

6. It teaches children that even if you make a mistake, you can learn and grow from it like Kenai.

Seriously I just love this movie to pieces it is so important to me and I wish more people knew/watched it because wtf it’s AMAZING.

what always confused me about this movie is why didn’t koda turn into a human instead of kenai into a bear like…what

Koda had spent his life scared of humans and one of them killed his mother. At his age it would have been unlikely for him to accept becoming a human, and I don’t think he would have felt comfortable living with Kenai between humans or Kenai living as a human between bears.

Imagine a library filled with every book in the world, none of them have titles on the cover and the pages are blank, but when you open one you are instantly transported to the world within the book. You get to live in the story as any character for as long as you like. And when you come out of the story, almost no time has passed in the real world.

When she saw him time slowed to a stop.  He was so perfect and she knew her life would never be the same because she had finally found him.  The one.  The first boy she would ever kill.

My Personal Blog

Hey guys!

I’m been thinking about it for a long time, and I decided to make a personal blog. Not because  I don’t like the book community (I love you guys SO MUCH), it’s just that recently, I’ve been wanting to post some non book related things and I feel like it would not be fair to y’all to post that on here if you subscribed to me for books and book related things.  (On my new blog you will find things about feminism, body positivity, funny things, inspirational thing, etc.) My new blog is called bluecandyclouds. I will continue to post on BOTH blogs. (There is no way that I could leave y’all.) I also will have my personal blog linked on my page.

Summary:

No one has ever believed that Mo and Annie are just friends. How can a guy and a girl really be best friends?

Then the summer before senior year, Mo’s father loses his job, and by extension his work visa. Instantly, life for Annie and Mo crumbles. Although Mo has lived in America for most of his life, he’ll be forced to move to Jordan. The prospect of leaving his home is devastating, and returning to a world where he no longer belongs terrifies him.

Desperate to save him, Annie proposes they tell a colossal lie—that they are in love. Mo agrees because marrying Annie is the only way he can stay. Annie just wants to keep her best friend, but what happens when it becomes a choice between saving Mo and her own chance at real love?

Review:

  • Story-line: I was really excited to pick this one up. I was ready to read a cute romance. However, this book is not a romance. I think I would have liked it a lot more if I knew what I was getting myself into. I had the thought that I was going to be reading a romance, and since it wasn’t that, I was left a little disapointed. Also, it took forever for this story to get to the point. It did not have to be this long.
  • Characters: I flip flopped between liking Mo better one minute and liking Annie better the next. THey could best be annoying at times. Not my favorite characters.
  • Writing: My favorite thing about the writing of this book was that the end of one chapter would match the beginning of the next one. It was really great.
  • Ending: Not what I wanted.
  • Extras: I think I just really wanted something else out of this book.
