REVIEW : Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian


Postcard-perfect Jar Island is the kind of place where nobody locks their doors at night, where parents can sleep easy, knowing their daughters are tucked away safe and sound in their beds.

But bad things can happen, even to good girls . . . and sometimes, the only way to make things right is to do something wrong.

Lillia used to trust boys, but not anymore. Not after what happened this summer. And she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her little sister from the same fate.

Kat is over the rumors, the insults, the cruel jokes made at her expense. It all goes back to one person--her ex-best friend. Someone needs to teach her a lesson, and, with Lillia and Mary behind her, Kat feels up to the task.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she’s not the same girl anymore. Now that she’s got friends who have her back, he's going to be in big trouble.

Three very different girls who come together to make things right. Will they go too far?


This book really intrigued me and I was totally looking forward to read it and now I have (:
And I actually really enjoyed it. I think it's maybe not one of my favorites but it was well written and the story line was great.

I liked it how you can see the three girls seeing the same scene in the differnet point of views and I think it was really entertaining (:
The protagonists were great. I loved how their social lives were involved in each others.
I have no favorite of these three and I think each is in their way gorgeous.

The only thing I don't like is that cliff-hanger at the end !

But like I already said I enjoyed it but didn't love it as I love for example The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare so I gave this book 

Have you read it ?
If so, did you like it or not, and why ?

REVIEW : Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout


 Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something... unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don't kill him first, that is.


Obsidian was a great book ! I love it so much and can't wait to read Onyx *-*

I liked Kate from the beginning and this not just because she loves books as I do but because she has a strong character and nobody, including Daemon, can say her what to do and what not.

Daemon is gorgeous and after reading those two scenes in his point of view I was just like : Holy crap !
He likes or better loves Kate but he knows he can't and so he's so damn sweet. How much I hate love which can't be..

His and Kate's relationship is so funny and cute that I had to laugh so hard while reading :D

And the story and the plots were really good too. But I won't tell anything because of spoilers.
 But one thing : The spagetti scene was so great and Ash's reaction was just so funny :D

But yeah.. maybe you could guess that this book also got 

Have you read it ?

My Wishlist #1

Hey guys!

Today I've got a new theme for you (:

Because I've got a gigantic wishlist of books I want to own and read, I thought I share it with you.
I think I'll do it weekly so every week a book of my wishlist :D

Okay.. so let's get started ! 
And just that you know : I pick randomly (:

 The Book


Time is slipping away....

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?

This book really intrigues me and I've heard many good things about it. 
So I do not really know why I haven't picked it up yet but I think it's because I have so many books on my shelf which I haven't read yet and I just want at first to finish all of these before I'm going to buy me new ones. Especially after my London Book Haul :D

So have you read this book ?
If so, did you like it or not ?

Let me know !

REVIEW : The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3) by Rick Riordan


When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediantly prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and ... a ride from his mom.

The demigods race to the rescue to find that Grover has made a important discovery: two powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord Kronos has set up a devious trap, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.

Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge yet - the chilling prophecy of the Titan's curse.


Yeahh.. this is the third book in this fantastic series and I think it's up to now the best because Percy's now 14 years old and I think so the readers can better compare them with him.

The new characters are all really nice, okay.. maybe two or three not, but they get all along with the main charcters. The Hunters first were a little bit scary with their bows and arrows but after that they were really friendly (okay.. the most of them) and Artemis was a really nice goddess.
And Apollo.. okay. I think you who've read this book know what I mean, but I say just Haiku :D
But anyway Apollo was a big help for the demigods and the Hunters and he is I think a really friendly and jokely one.

And there was one characters where I just laughed when he made comments and that was Blackjack :D
Such a cute and funny horse :D

To be honest I always thought Thalia wasn't a nice person when she was first mentioned in Sea of Monsters but I really like her after this book.

But of course there were also some shocks in this book.

The first shock for me was as something important happened to Annabeth, what I won't say for those who haven't read this book yet.

And another was these really ugly, creepy and disgusting skeletons. How much I hate them..

But yeah.. I don't want that this reviews goes too long so I think this is the end now.

Ohh ! I've forgotten the stars ! (:

I think you maybe can guess how many I gave ? And yees ! You're right ! I gave this dam book (comparison ? I think not :D)

Ohh.. and to let you know: I read this book in about 4-5 hours yesterday and I'll read the next one today (:
So be aware of a review tomorrow :D

On my Shelf #1 / Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Hey guys!

Today I've got my first On my Shelf (:


After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

To be honest, I don't really know why I haven't picked this book up yet because I own it for a really long time now (and Crown of Midnight and The Assissin's Blade too).
And I've also heard such amazing things about it but maybe this is a point why I haven't read it yet..
Because I'm afraid I won't like this book this much as everyone else does. Or I won't like it at all..

But I hope I'll pick it up soon, maybe in August otherwise at the latest in September. (:

Have you read this book/series ?
If so, how was your opinion on it and did you like it ?

Bookhaul #2 / London Edition

Hey guys (:

Today I’m here, like I’ve said, with my London Book Haul !

But first of all : London was amazing ! *-* Extremly crowded but amazing *-*

 And I was, as you will see, in a ton of bookshops and so I went ahead and bought a ton of books :D

I’ve got a total of 10 books (maybe doesn’t sound this much but I’ve bought them all in 2 days!).

Booktower *-*

The Hardcovers

And here I've got a signed book :

It's Elizabeth is missing by Emma Healey.

And I also got the Special Collectors Edition of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell which is red (see Booktower) and the actual book looks like this :

REVIEW : Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2) by Rick Riordan


Percy Jackson's seventh-grade year has been surprisingly quiet. Not a single monster has set a foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodgeball among Percy an his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get ... well, ugly. And the unexpected arrival of his friend Annabeth brings more bad news: the magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed.

In this fresh, funny, and wildly popular follow-up to The Lightning Thief, Percy and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their camp. But first, Percy will discover a stunning new secret about his family - one that makes him question whether being claimed Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.


I was really looking forward to what happens in this book after I've finished The Lightning Thief but I was a little bit kinda nervous because this book has only got 280 pages.
But I think it was a really good sequel to an amazing book.

You could see easily Percy's worried about his friends and that he would do everything for them, also beeing expelled out of camp.

The relationship between Percy and Tyson was a little bit strange at the beginning but through the book they got more and more a brothers, as they are.

I really hated Tantalus, he was such an superficial guy who wasn't interested in anything like camp stuff or the health of the demigods. Some times I got really angry at him when he threatend Percy.

I could also understand how Hermes felt about Luke and how Chiron felt when he was dismissed.

The only problem I have with this book is the cliff-hanger at the end! :D
But I already have the third book.

This book got from me


I'm in London the next couple of days and I won't take my computer with me.

So see y'all Tuesday with my London Book Haul :*

REVIEW : The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan


Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school ... again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the oages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed in his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with his father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.


So, like you probably know this is a really popular and hyped book and I think I'm one of the last persons who read it.
I think I haven't even read it if my two best friends hadn't read it before me (what happens almost never) and got me into reading it.

I'm honest when I say I hadn't high expectations ono it because it was a book where the male protagonist is 12 years old so I thought it would probably be really childish but..

it wasnt!

I really enjoyed this book and so it's no wonder I read it in one-and-a-half days.

The characters were so adorable you just have to love them and the plot was really cool. I think it was really good written and explained while and how Percy gets involved into this world of monsters, gods and half-bloods and you could really see how he got braver throughtout the quest.

I think this is one of  some of these books you can read at all points of your life: as a child, as a teenager and as an adult.

So I gave this book :

I'm really looking forward to read the sequel !

Hope you enjoyed my review (:
