50/50 Friday - World You'd Like/Not Like to Live in

This fun meme is hosted by myself and Laura from Blue Eye Books every Friday. Come join us!



What is 50/50 Friday? 
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read.



Topic for the Week
World You'd Like/Not Like to Live in



This one is sooo easy for me to choose. The one I would choose to live forever in, would be the Harry Potter world. It's so amazing and I've even dreamed I lived there once. I mean it would be so great!

Would Live:
Harry Potter World



The world I'd never want to live in... that would be the Hunger Games. I mean, while I'd be safe from everything... my daughter would not be. She'd be of age one day and that I'd have to fear her safety every year. No thank you. 


Never Live:
The Hunger Games




Topic for Next Week
-->Best/Worst Book Read in April

Spoilers - Thursday's Disscusion



So we all love to discuss our favorite books. Anywhere we can, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, on our blog and so on. But when is it safe to post spoilers? Should we ever talk about spoilers? 




So personally, if I want to discuss spoilers I just put a spoiler warning on my post but I don't if it's on twitter and I only do on Facebook in the groups that make that part of their rules. 

I don't want to spoil people but at the same time, it shouldn't keep us from talking about the books I love and have read. Also maybe I think this way because I don't mind spoilers, I'll still enjoy the book just the same if I get spoiled a little. 

I don't want people not to talk about the books or part of the books they love just because I've not read it yet and they have. No, they should get to talk about the book and enjoy it wholeheartedly. 

So yeah, I'm probably the only one in the world that doesn't mind spoilers though I do try and not spoil it whenever I can. Like Twitter, when I want to talk about spoilers, I never # the post. Ever, so it's much harder to find. 

I post spoiler warnings in my reviews and on Facebook in the groups I'm in. I also don't spoil anything on Instagram personally, so I never worry about that.

Let me know your thought about spoilers below! I'm sure everyone's opinion will differ from mine. Have a great day! Happy Reading!

Restraint (Revelation #2) - Book Breakdown


A FORBIDDEN LOVE WILL BECOME DEEPER.
A LOYALTY WILL BE TESTED.
AND ONLY DARKNESS WILL REMAIN.

One revelation changed everything, turning Eve Collin’s world upside down. Now, she’s left to struggle with her identity and allegiance. Haunted by grief and tempted by her increasing attraction to her protector, will she ever truly be safe from enemies that refuse to give up? 

Restraint is an addictively spellbinding continuation of Eve’s journey of self-discovery, love and sacrifice that will change everything.

Readers captivated by Revelation will eagerly devour Restraint.






Book Breakdown 

This one picks up closely to where we left off. Eve is still trying to move past the death of her best friend and it's not easy. She blames herself for being so preoccupied with the sexy Asher. She tries to stay away from him but it doesn't work and in between her being kidnaped and all the crap going on with Lucifer and his minions, she's falling harder for Asher and he's falling back. Though that's forbidden, so what will become of them? 

While I still think I prefer the fist one over this one, the quality in this one is much better. The writing has taken a step up and so has the pacing, it's moving at a much better pace now. I found myself flying through it. 

The ending though... it kind of ripped my heart out and then just ran off with it. If you pick up this series make sure you have them all ready as you'll want to binge this, the cliffhangers will kill you otherwise.  

I love this world more than anything, there is every kind of supernatural creature in here and I'm loving it. The characters are all well developed and I love them. 

So if you're looking for a NA paranormal romance, then look no further because this series is for you!

*Thanks to NetGalley for this awesome title*

Music Monday - Rihanna

This meme is hosted over at Always Me



While I will say that her newest album isn't her best in my opinion. I still love her and her music. I've loved her since her very first album. I actually went out and bought the CD... I bought it on iTunes too. I just loved it so much. She is so talented.

Days of Blood and Starlight - Book Breakdown

Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a world free of bloodshed and war.

This is not that world.

Art student and monster's apprentice Karou finally has the answers she has always sought. She knows who she is—and what she is. But with this knowledge comes another truth she would give anything to undo: She loved the enemy and he betrayed her, and a world suffered for it.

In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Karou must decide how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, secrets and impossible choices, Days of Blood & Starlight finds Karou and Akiva on opposing sides as an age-old war stirs back to life.

While Karou and her allies build a monstrous army in a land of dust and starlight, Akiva wages a different sort of battle: a battle for redemption. For hope.

But can any hope be salvaged from the ashes of their broken dream?





Book Breakdown 

“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living—one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers’ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying. 

Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel—a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness. 

This was not that world.” 

I am so speechless after reading this book. I cried, laughed, smiled, and got all the feels. I wish more books were written like this. I feel like this world is so flushed out... I mean I can see it in my mind just as good as I can the real world. The author is going such a great job at world building and this level is what other authors should aspire to. 

The plot keeps moving: Karou is still trying to deal with the fact that Brimestone is dead and then she finds the White Wolf. Things get so bad for her here. There were many times I wanted to smack her and tell her 'girl, he's using you! He is only keeping you around until he can teach someone else to do your job!' She has taken over Brimsone's job for the army that White Wolf wants her to make. 

Karou thinks she's helping, that the chimaera will accept her one day and trust her again. The White Wolf is telling everyone to stay away from her and not to trust her. I thought she would be smart enough to figure this out but she's blinded by so many other things. 

Akiva is also suffering, he thinks Karou is dead. It's broken him and he's not sure what to do now. It's nice to see him make up with his brother and sister. I like his ARC as well. There is so much that happens in this book that I can't cover everything without making this six pages long. 

Also Zuzana is one of the best side characters I have ever read about. I love her, she's so loyal and sweet. She's also not scared to bite back when needs be. I just love her so much.

It is slow to start, just like the first one but it's so worth it. I am simply in love with this world, these characters and this amazing writing.

If you've not read this series, you should! I promise that you will never regret it. This is one of the best written, most developed, and engaging series I've ever read. 

It's going to be one of my favorites for the rest of my life.
