Feature & Follow (3)

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read.

This week's question:

Hard print (real thing) or Kindle/Nook, which is your favorite?

My Answer:

This is a tough one! I recently received a tablet as Christmas presents and i have my kindle app on there now! But since i never buy books, i'll have to go with Hard Print :]

The few books i have "bought" on my Kindle, i never get around to reading them, or i forget about them when i am reading them.

Hard Print is where it's at :]

What about you guys??

Until The Beginning (After the End #2) by Amy Plum
Publication Date: May 5th 2015 by HarperTeen


World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.
At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.
When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.
Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.

I loved book 1!!! It was so good. I need book 2 right away please!! :]

Have you read After the End yet???

Red Rising

Title: Red Rising
Series: Red Rising Trilogy #1
Author: Pierce Brown
Rating: 3 Stars.


My Thoughts in 1 GIF:

Okay, i seem to be the only one who didn't love this book.

Main reason i didn't like this, there wasn't anything really going on at all for 75% of the book!!

The first 25%, Darrow was all into taking down the Golds and doing whatever it took. There was plans made. Lots of talking happened. They showed Darrow things to make him angry, and he became angry. So therefore i was expecting some serious shit to do down. I was hyped up for it! So when i get to the 50% mark and nothing has happened, i struggle on, then 75%, still waiting, at this point i start skimming like crazy because NOTHING IS HAPPENING!!!

I didn't quite understand how this whole "School" thing worked. It was the Hunger Games meets Survivor and it was just bad. Brown didn't even explain who the school thing worked, they just ended up there. (Unless i missed something, i don't remember him explaining anything)

I pictured this the whole time they were at "school"

They were split into teams, which i still don't see how they figured out the teams. did they just wake up around the same area in the "arena" and that was the team?!

Then there was some kind of probe thingy that made them into slaves or some shit. Again, it wasn't really explained, i have no idea what the darn thing looks like, but it appeared very randomly and people buried it and i don't know.

I thought the whole point to Darrow being there was to make friends, but as far as i could tell, he spent more time running after some girl on the other team then he did making friends. Then he started to turn into a crazy power driven person and was gonna kill someone, then didn't, which makes zero sense since on like the first day of "School" he killed some random kid and was alright with it then!

The only thing that even went with the story line, happened in the last like 75 pages. But that was rushed and not very climatic.

Seriously, i saw nothing wrong with living inside Mars versus whatever the hell was on the surface of Mars. If i was Darrow, i would've just stayed down there.

Overall, this book wasn't at all what i expected and i was bored during most of the book. To me, almost nothing was explained to Darrow or the reader. Darrow just went with it and I just skimmed through a lot. I was expecting so much more and so much different than what this became. Not impressed.

I have an ARC of Golden Son, i was going to read it as soon as i was done with Red Rising, but now, i don't even know if it'll get to it.

Feature & Follow Friday (2)

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read.
This week's question:
Do you post your reviews anywhere besides your blog? Where else do you post reviews?

My Answer: 

Well, last year, i mainly only posted on Goodread's, Blogger, and Booklikes :]
This year i will be adding Tumblr, and Amazon to the mix :]

I do have a process to reviews thou, i always post them on Goodreads first, mainly because i just use HTML and when i copy over to Booklikes, it copies too :]
This year thou i am trying to include more things in my reviews, like GIFs :] 

My Goodreads is the most updated of everything thou. I always scan a book into the goodreads app before i start it. I update a lot on there and i share my while reading thoughts, which i'm trying to do more often now.



Library Haul! 1/23

Lies We Tell Ourselves - Robin Talley
Trust Me I'm Lying[TRUST ME IM LYING][Hardcover] - MaryElizabethSummer
It's too dark to take a picture but i wanted to share what i got :]

I'm pretty excited to get to these!! Plus, the library had Vampire Academy on DVD :] so i grabbed that to see, maybe it'll tempt me more to try that series again!

I'm feeling about 75% better than i was at the beginning of this week, all that's left is a runny nose. Trying to take it really easy this weekend.

In other news, i'm hoping you guys can send me some good vibes my way. I'm stressing out over a work thing. I rather not go into detail. But good vibes are needed :]

Have you read any of the books i grabbed today??

Snow Like Ashes

DNF at 25%.

I badly wanted to love this book. Everyone else seem to love it.

i struggled through the 100 pages i did read.

It was hard to follow what was going on. There was too many names of people, places, and things to follow.

I'm pretty sure i already know the big plot twist anyhow.

I was gonna give it another 50 pages, but once i put it down, i just had zero desire to pick it back up.
