EXCERPT


Zing. The mini laser bullets peppered the ground in front of her, short of their target but showing their wicked intent with the puffs of dust they raised.
“They shot at me!” she squeaked.
“It’s what you get for associating with a known criminal. They now consider you my accomplice.” He smiled. “Welcome to my world.”
“This is your fault!” She yelled the accusation as she ducked behind him, moments before more laser bullets hit the ground where she’d stood.
Of course this was his fault. Way to state the obvious. Even more obvious was the fact that they’d end up as particles of ash if they didn’t get to safety.

    THE POST PROMPT: 

    Top 5 Favorite Book Boy Friends


    MY ANSWER:


    This is actually one of the easiest questions, yet I had a hard time picking just five! So I'll go with a mix of characters I read about this year and the previous ones.

    1) Rhysand, High Lord of the Night Court. He was our surprise this year and I believe that I was one of the millions of readers who were blown away by his past, actions and his love. Though he was a girlfriend *cough*mate*cough*, he is still one of the best ones!

    If night flights, gowns, tattoos and fights are your thing, then this is the boyfriend for you!

    Some fanart. (which I am sure will not stop until the release of the final book! All credits go to the artists.)
















    2) Kell from "A Shade of Magic" series! The sorcerer with the neat coat has to deal with more than he can. Also he has a sneaky thief who likes blades wayy to much! He is loyal and kind and has a kink for hoarding treasures!

    If multi-dimensional travel through London(s) and blade fighting is your thing then Kell is your guy!






    3) Lord Hector from "A Girl of Fire and Thorns" series. You may not remember this guy but he is one of the bravest commanders I know in a fantasy trilogy. His love and loyalty are beyond comparison. Not to mention, he knows how to wear a mustache!

    If warriors with heart of gold are your favs then he is the one for you!


     4) Zeke from Immortal Rules series! Such a sweet boy with a world turned against him! Thank God smeone is looking out for him! ;)

    If you want to fight along strong warriors in a vampire infested world then he is for you!


     
                                                              (art by PhantomRin)


    5) All the guys from ALL the books by Leigh Bardugo. I really don't know from whom to begin. Mal? Nikolai? THE DARKLING? Or maybe Kaz, Jesper Waylan and Mattias?

    *brain failure*

    I'll leave it to you to decide! (art by PhantomRin)


                                 
                                                                   The Darkling


                                               
                                                                         Nikolai



                                                                         Mal


     
                                                                      Jesper


                                                                    Wylan





                                                                      Kaz

                                                                       Mattias









    I know that I should metion also other amazing book boyfriends but I had to narrow it down.
    Have a great weekend!

    From the New York Times Bestselling author of MISTER O and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

    I’ve been told I have quite a gift.

    Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing....

    Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place.

    Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.

    I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says.

    Surprise—neither one of us sleeps.

    And even though we agree to return to roomies-without-benefits, I quickly realize I want more than someone to split the utilities with. Now all I want is to spend every night—and every day—with my gorgeous roommate.

    Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too.

    What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?

    Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood. You probably also crave a ride that can go all night long.

    I’m at your service. Come and ride on my Joy Stick…

    That's what I like to say to the ladies. Or I would if I were total pig. It's far too easy in this world to strut around like a peacock when you’ve got all these other features in your favor. But just like the custom cars I build with class and sophistication, that’s how I treat my women.

    Don’t worry. I absolutely do my best work dirty…both in the shop, and between the sheets. Work and play — that’s what my life has been, and I f&*king love it. I’m completely, 100% driven. Until one woman comes along and throws a wrench in my plans. The one woman I should absolutely, positively never take for a joy ride.

    Now that's all I want to do with her…she’s so far off-limits, but that’s exactly where I want to go with her.

    Get ready for a wild ride…

    Review: "The Beauty of Darkness" (The Remnant Chronicles #3) by Mary E. Pearson


    The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Summary from GoodReads

    Lia and Rafe have escaped Venda and the path before them is winding and dangerous - what will happen now? This third and final book in The Remnant Chronicles is not to be missed.

    Bestselling author Mary E. Pearson's combination of intrigue, suspense, romance and action make this a riveting page turner for teens.









     BUY ON



    REVIEW

    This book had one of the most explosive endings I've ever seen! Action, battles, secrets, conspiracies and romance!

    After their close escape from the Komizar, Lia and Rafe race against time in order to warn the kingdoms of the coming threat. With a song in her ears and the determination she has, Lia becomes in this book one of the strongest characters I've ever seen. Some would say that she looks like Aelin/ Celaena but I disagree.
    While my fire-breathing queen was trained as an assassin, Lia begins as a princess who in the course of the trilogy becomes stronger, trains in order to protect herself and at the same time she is a scholar. I loved every part of her in this book; from her courage and her ability to even make hard desicions to her stuborn behavior. How everyone expected her to be just a weak princess and she proved them ALL WRONG!



    Now, Rafe was also a major factor in the story. Despite his love for Lia, we also see here a bad side, which is born from fear mostly. His relationship with Lia had its ups and downs and it made my heart ache every time I had to read through both their POVs.

    And Kaden; he also goes under a major character development here even if he gets his happy ending in a rushed way. Also the supposed love triangle here is resolved in a very smooth way and early in the book too! The plot is not driven by the love triangle but instead from the hard desicions everyone in this story had to make.

    The ending was hard for me. Until the last page I didn't know what would happen between Lia and Rafe, but when THAT scene was shown it was one of the sweetest moments I've ever read!

    I will miss this trilogy. It was one of the best ones I've completed and I hope Mary E. Pearson will continue to write such amazing stories! ;)

    Review: "The Heart of Betrayal" (The Remnant Chronicles #2) by Mary E. Pearson

    Hello everyone! These past days have been quite tiring and I apologise for the tiny drop-out I had. Between reading for exams and...reading in general I didn't have the chance to post much. But I'll try and redeem this week! ;)



    The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Summary from GoodReads

    Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save Lia's life, her erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komizar that she has the gift, and the Komizar's interest in Lia is greater than anyone could have foreseen.

    Meanwhile, nothing is straightforward: There's Rafe, who lied to Lia but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom Lia always believed to be savages. Now that she lives among them, however, she realizes that may be far from the truth. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her sense of self, Lia must make powerful choices that will affect her country... and her own destiny.



    BUY ON



    REVIEW


    In the heart-pounding sequel of the Remnant Chronicles, Lia, Rafe and Kaden will try to survive in the depths of Venda with enemies all around them and secrets about the world's past which are shown through Lia's eyes.

    This book! How well developed and good it was! With many secondary characters and many hidden secrets! There is definitely no SBS (Second Book Syndrome) here for which I am glad. I am sure that the Komisar had his reasons to hate the rest of the kingdoms but never to the point of insanity. While Rafe has sacrificed his freedom to keep Lia safe, Kaden on the other hand is doing everything he can to keep her alive.

    Some may persume that there is a strong love triangle here, which is not true. I don't think it was shown like other YA where obviously the heroine wants both of the male characters, because Lia had much more important problems to deal with than swooning over the men.

    The ending was epic with action and fighting. And a cliffhanger I really liked! Recommended for its stunning worldbuilding and well-developed characters!

Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream.

    Review: "The Last Star" (The 5th Wave, #3) by Rick Yancey. Not the ending I was expecting


    The Last Star by Rick Yancey
    My rating: 3 of 5 stars

    Summary from GoodReads

    The enemy is Other. The enemy is us.

    They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

    But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

    In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.

    BUY ON 



    REVIEW

    I wanted to read this book a WHOLE year! A year of waiting, hoping to have a BAM ending, a year in which I still haven't seen the movie and I don't know if I will.
    As Cass and the gang try to find a way and stop the imminent world destruction and Ringer has her own moral issues to deal with, the aliens are also coming on Earth. That's the plot in general. Now, what happens into the plot that's something you need to read in order to find out.

    Although I respect the way Rick Yansey wrote this series, setting the moral issues of an apocalyptic world and the humanity as a principle at stake, I had hoped for a better ending. I don't know if some events could be written differently or some characters could be saved from their choices but the ending gutted me.

    And if you want a clue, the ending was a lot like "Allegiant". In my opinion, Evan Walken was the one who lost the most here, not to mention Sam. So despite its amazing writing style and world building, at least for me, I had hope for a better ending in this amazing series.
