Review for Shut Out

Review for Shut Out

Shut Out Really funny and wonderful book. 🙂

Normally I would avoid books that talk about sex to much. But this book had just the right amount of it. I really liked that it is based on a greek play and I like how that is also said numerous times in the book.

Review for Paper Valentine

Review for Paper Valentine

Paper Valentine I was slightly worried I might not like it. I tried the Replacement by her, and dropped it. Luckily Paper Valentine is a whole lot better, even if it took me some time to get into the book.

I like the story, the romance was just fitting in right too. Still wondering why Lillian was haunting Hannah, and sometimes Lillian was quite annoying.

The mystery was quite nicely done, with enough suspension and even some hints. 🙂

Review for Specials (Uglies, #3)

Review for Specials (Uglies, #3)

Specials (Uglies, #3) Last book in the series (I don’t see the Extras book as belonging to this series, since it features another character). I must say, I went for liking Tally in the first book, to thinking she was kinda annoying in the second, to what-the-hell-is-wrong-with-you in this book. And the whole here-we-go-again brain reset thing, got pretty lame. In the second book it was so they could test the cure, and now.. Oh well.

I mean cutting yourself, being a special, all the things she was so afraid of and here in this book she is all of that. And even more. She is much more dangerous than the others.

I am also sad that we didn’t see much more of David or the others. Everything was about Tally, Tally and Tally.

And I don’t know what is wrong with the world. Sex, drinking, doing dangerous stuff while you are just 16 and much more. But all they care about is the enviroment and the war and the rusties. I got a bit tired about it in the second book and in this one even more. Why make people stupid and pretty. Can’t they just be pretty and smart?

Also what bothered me in the first book was that apparently when you reach a certain age you are put in a dorm. Now I am not sure if that goes for the whole population of kids or just a select few. But I mean why remove the kids from their parents? Can’t they just stay with them?

I was happy though that we finally have another city/scenery for this book. Though the books told stories about the other cities, I never thought we would see another city.

I sort of liked the ending, though I am kinda of sad that after 3 books with Tally this is the ending and we will never know what happens to her.

Review for Verrassende Kattenweetjes

Review for Verrassende Kattenweetjes

Verrassende Kattenweetjes Ik vind het altijd leuk om over katten te lezen, het is het enige wat ik kan doen, want ik ben allergisch voor katten. 🙁 Het boek was leuk, ik vond de grapjes geinig. Het was af en toe serieus, maar vaak waren er ook grapjes gemaakt over dingen.

Review for Walls Within Walls

Review for Walls Within Walls

Walls Within Walls Wasn’t sure what to think of the book at first. I have had it in my bookcase for many months, every time having other more exciting books to read. Until now, and am I glad I read it. What a wonderful tale this was. 🙂

Review for Monument 14 (Monument 14, #1)

Review for Monument 14 (Monument 14, #1)

Monument 14 (Monument 14, #1) This is not the complete review, just parts and bits.

First: I magically got this book, eventhough it shouldn’t be out yet. 4-4-2013 is the date that is plastered all over the internet, even on the official site. But yesterday, quite unexpected, I got my copy of this book, and am currently reading it. 🙂 Either someone made a mistake, or no one cared to update the release date.

Second: My rants about the books.

Hail, Earthquakes, Tsunami, Chemical disasters.. not going to happen I hear you say? Think again, in this world everything that possibly could have gone wrong, goes wrong.
If the hail didn’t kill you, you will be killed by the Chemicals that are now floating in the air. Ok that is also totally depending on your bloodtype, but if you have some O’s as your neighbours, I would suggest you hide and hope hard.

I am really happy with this male lead. Not that I knew he was male in the beginning, I thought he was a she. 🙂 How he acted, how he reacted, everything just screamed: GIRL! to me. But a bit further we find out he is really a he. 🙂

Now that I have finished the book, I can say I really loved it. How it starts all good and fine, of course panic and all. And slowly tips over to despair, death, murder.
of course it is no perfect book, there were some parts I didn’t like. The Robbie/Appleton part. Especially Robbie, really what a sick dude that guy was.
Didn’t like Sahalia and how she behaved and dressed. And some other stuff happening.

Something else that I didn’t like: Grammar/Spelling and sentence construction. There were some sentences that I kept reading over and over, to find it if was me or the book. Sentences like: “”I was sleepy was the thing.”” or “”But now her eyes were lined with black and she had on very red lip gloss.””

Can’t wait for 2014 to come. Since that is probably when the paperback will be released. 🙁 1 whole year waiting for a book, waiting for a sequel that I really want to read.

Review for Unfed (Undead, #2)

Review for Unfed (Undead, #2)

Unfed (Undead, #2) Another fantastic book. Love the jokes, the zombies, and oh yes the occasional romantic moments. 🙂
I am hoping for another book, though reading the ending I am sure we will get many more books.
