synopsis

Cassidy Blake’s parents are The Inspectres, a (somewhat inept) ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.

When The Inspectres head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass—and Jacob—come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn’t sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn’t belong in her world. Cassidy’s powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.

PLOT

Cassidy is a weird kid, she has an old camera that she bring everywhere, she has weird parents who wrote books about paranormal activity, she has a ghost as a best friend, and yes, she could see ghosts. Her supernatural ability began when she was drowned in the river and almost die, a boy named Jacob saved her, but later she found out that Jacob is a ghost. Ever since Jacob saved her, they become connected to one another. Cassidy not only could see ghosts, but she also could enter the veil, where the ghost live in their own world and memory.

The story become interesting when Cassidy’s parents get a chance to shoot a show in Edinburg, the most haunted city on earth, and Cassidy has no choice but to follow along. Cassidy and Jacob’s thrilling adventure starts here as they discover so many scary and powerful ghosts that could actually harm them if they’re not careful.

Although the idea is not very original but I really enjoy the story, I love how we could also get a thing or two history lessons of Edinburg. The adventure is thrilling and fun, the story is nothing new and very predictable, but this is a great and entertaining story.

WORLDBUILDING

I loved but also a little bit confused of the world that Schwab created in this book, I feel so weird reading about things I could not understand but this is a really personal opinion, for example like how Cassidy could feel the veil and the tap tap tap feeling in her shoulder, and I’m really confused of how this veil works, ghosts in their own timeloop and memory and all. Well maybe I was overthinking this, again, this is only my personal opinion. But weirdness aside, I found myself enjoying the stories behind each ghosts they encounter, like how they died and what has been keeping them in the veil.

The world is also a little bit darker than I expected, there are slightly disturbing issues such as, death in general and the various ways of death which I’m not really sure are appropriate for Middle Grade.

WRITING

This is the first V.E. Schwab book I ever read so I couldn’t compare the writing style with her previous books (which I’m sure it’d be different from her YA books). I love the writing style, it’s light and easy to follow. Although I feel like the HP references are a bit too much.

CHARACTERS

Cassidy and Jacob are two lovable characters. Cassidy is a brave kid with so many curiosities and Jacob is usually the voice of reason, to restrain her from doing something reckless and stupid, he’s not brave but he should be brave for Cassidy. I love how heartwarming their friendship is, how they really depend and understand each other.

synopsis

In the Blue, the world’s last city, all is not well.

Julia is stuck within its walls. She serves the nobility from a distance until she meets Lucas, a boy who believes in fairytales that Julia’s world can’t accommodate. The Blue is her prison, not her castle, and she’d escape into the trees if she didn’t know that contamination and death awaited humanity outside.

But not everyone in the Blue is human, and not everyone can be contained.

Beyond the city’s boundaries, in the wild forests of the Red, Cameron has precious little humanity left to lose. As he searches for a lost queen, he finds an enemy rising that he thought long dead. An enemy that the humans have forgotten how to fight.

One way or another, the walls of the Blue are coming down. The only question is what side you’ll be on when they do.

TRIGGER WARNING!

Gore, violence, murder

 

Silver and human live together in Blue, the last city on earth. Silver provide protection to the people in Blue. Human serve the Silver by working for them and provided blood for them. Julia was a kitchen server and she was fine with it. Unlike any other girls, she never wanted to be an attendant, but the noble need an attendant so she was assigned to the nobility named Lucas, a boy who’s like no noble she ever seen.

Outside the wall of the Blue, there’s a world called Red, where dangerous creatures hunt the remaining humans. Cameron is one of the Solis Invicti (an elite army of Blue), he’s been searching for a long lost Queen in Red for decades and never got a single clue, until he met a human named Felix. Together they venture through the dangerous world of Red to rescue their friends.

To be frank, I don’t really understand what was going on in this book but I’m really drawn to this lost Queen, I’m curious to find out her backstory and the history of the Silver. But the pace is dragging, it’s really painful for me to read it.

I was confuse as hell. I didn’t understand a single thing until I reached half of the book. The author explained the history and worldbuilding bit by bit, but even so there are still so many things left unexplained. I now it’s supposed to make me curious but instead it make me unmotivated to continue to read it.

The story is told from 2 PoVs, Julia in Blue and Cameron in Red. Julia’s chapter is easy to read, we get to understand the life as a human under the monarchy of the Silver, but it’s a little bit boring because there’s literally nothing happen except for the romance which I think a little bit rushed. Cameron’s chapter is full of action and thrilling adventure but also really confusing. I don’t really understand the importance of Julia’s character in this book because she contribute nothing to the story, but I still hope for the character development and I know there’s more to her than meets the eye.

I really can’t stand Julia, she’s the “I’m different from other girls” girl which make me rolled my eyes so hard they almost fell from their eye sockets. And she repeatedly remind herself that she’s different! I can’t say much about both Julia and Cameron because I didn’t feel connected at all to any of them and I couldn’t care less about them. I’m more interested in Lucas, that boy steal my heart! He’s polite and have a great self control, he’s not abusing his position even though he absolutely can. He’s so gentle and so lovable and I want to protect him.

I can’t say that I loved this book, but despite the confusing worldbuilding and forgettable characters, I’m still eager to find out about the lost Queen and the sleeping King. So overall it’s an okay read for me. Maybe if you love dystopian, vampire, and paranormal story you’d enjoy this book more than I did.

lineexcerpt

At the very furthest point of the temple, at the end of the double row of pillars that processed towards it, there was a pedestal mounted on a stepped dais. A figure was laid out on top of it. For a moment, Julia froze, thinking it was a real person lying there, slumbering in the temple, but something didn’t fit.

The figure wasn’t breathing. It wasn’t moving at all.

‘Come on,’ Lucas said, leading her down the aisle towards it.

‘Is it a statue?’ she asked.

‘A tomb, really.’

As they walked, he snuffed out the lamps that lined the walls, until finally the only illumination came from the rounded alcove into which the dais rose. It was a bright island in the centre of the darkness, and in the middle of it the statue shone: a man, wearing fine clothing in an unfamiliar style, with a blanket of stone covering his body. His exposed skin was tinged with a sheen of gold that glowed like the walls of the temple.

‘He looks so real,’ she said, reaching out to touch the golden curls that crowned his head. They were slick under her fingers, so intricate they might have been moulded from a real person.

‘They say he was.’

‘You mean this is his coffin?’ The pedestal certainly looked like a tomb. It was wide and deep enough to accommodate a body.

‘No,’ Lucas said, ‘I mean that this is him, that this statue was once alive.’

Julia’s hand had been tracing the lines of the face, but now she snatched it away. ‘You’re not serious.’

‘I am.’

‘This is why you brought me here,’ she said.

‘Of course. You want to hear the fairytale, don’t you?’

I’m reading a very short poetry book by indie local author right now. The book title is Windy Field, I just started so I don’t have much to say yet but I love the poems so far! I still have to catch up with my reviews, there are two more books I need to review. Hopefully I will get back to reading bigger book this weekend!


just finished

 


Alternating between YA and MG book seems to improve my reading productivity! I often feel kinda tired after reading YA fantasy book and MG book restore the fun! I finished Descendants of War: Magic’s Demise and it was an okay read for me, review will be coming up soon. And after that I read A Place Called Perfect and I loved it, it’s probably has the most unique world and plot!! I think I’ll read the sequel soon after I finished what I’m reading right now and maybe I’ll write mini review for both the first and second book!


next read

 


I’m gonna read The Trouble with Perfect because I’m in love with the world and the character! And you know how I recently obsessed with Taylor Jenkins Reid’s writing style ever since I read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, so I decided to read One True Loves, I heard nothing but great things about this book!

Top 5 Tuesday: Books I Despise but You Probably Loved (Please Don’t Kill Me!)

 


Top 5 Tuesday is weekly meme hosted by Shanah and this week’s topic is Books That Didn’t Lived Up to the Hype,


It’s time for a controversial post and I hope you guys didn’t hate me for this, because I got some books that I didn’t like which you guys probably loved so much! But hey, what’s a community without a little bit of difference right?

So here’s the list of top 5 books that didn’t work for me but are adore by so many people!

 

Caraval

I saw so many of you guys really liked this book and it was hyped a couple of years ago. I finally read it a few months ago and it didn’t work for me, I didn’t hate this book, it’s an okay read but I can’t see why this book was such overhyped! I’ve write a review and you can read it here if you’d like!

The Raven Cycle

The fandom of The Raven Cycle is so huge, there are a lot of people in love with the book, the characters, and the writing. But sadly this book is not for me, the world is confusing, and the pace is so slow, the characters are great though but as you probably know that I’m more of a plot person than the characters so… Here‘s my review if you’d like to read it!

Scythe

I really love the basic idea of the future world without death and there has to be Scythe to control the population, but that’s the only thing that I like about this book. The pace is dragging, the characters are forgettable, and I didn’t really like the plot. Here‘s my review!

Mirage

This book is a weird mix between fantasy and sci-fi and it just didn’t work well for me. There are not much happening in this book, it feels flat to me, the world is super weird, but the characters are pretty great. It’s an okay read for me, read my full review here.

Six of Crows

I read this book a long time ago before I even blog so I haven’t write a review yet. I jumped into this book without reading The Grisha trilogy first and I think it was a big mistake, because I was so confused with the world and some of the strange terms in this book. I know so many people love the characters and I can see why, but I just don’t feel the connection to any of them. I do want to re-read this (after I read The Grisha Trilogy first) and I guess we’ll see if I would change my mind.

synopsis

Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds through the decades—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

line

review mini

You guys, I don’t know where to start, I think I could start by saying how beautiful and powerful this book is but that would be an understatement.

When Monique was offered to do an exclusive interview for Evelyn Hugo by the Evelyn Hugo herself, she was confused but also thrilled. Evelyn Hugo has been shut herself from the media for years, so why now? Why her? What could Evelyn possibly wants from her? She’s just an amateur and unknown magazine reporter. This question is also the big mystery we’re going to find out aside from Evelyn Hugo’s secret life story and her seven husbands.

This book is told from two different PoVs and timelines, one is Monique in the present time, and the other one is Evelyn as a narrator for her own story jumping from year to year from the beginning of her career until the very end.

We get to hear Evelyn as she got out of her miserable life in Hell’s Kitchen and make her way to Hollywood, we get to hear her struggle and everything she has done to get her to the spotlight, and it’s not an easy ride. She has done so many things, good things, terrible things to get what she wanted and she did not feel sorry or ashamed about it because she knew it has to be done. Evelyn is a very brave, ambitious, and complicated woman, she has so many flaws and sometimes I even feel disgust about her, but that’s what I like about her character, she’s real, she’s so very real I almost think I read an actual autobiography. Evelyn Hugo is the most empowering woman I’ve ever known and has become one of my inspiration.

This book is about a struggle to get a better life, in which including so many issues along the way like racial discrimination, sexuality, physical and mental abuse but above all else, this book is about finding family, friendship and one true love. Despite her seven husbands, people has been wondering about who her true love might be and we’re about to find out as she tells us the true story of her life and her seven husbands which had been twisted by people and the media back in the day.

The relationship in this book is NOTHING like I have ever read before, her love stories are breaking my heart to million pieces and I was a sobbing mess the entire time, especially after the second half of the book, it’s painful to see her hiding who she really is to get ahold of the life she has been created. The friendship is the purest, the most honest relationship I ever read in a book, she and Harry are perfectly made for each other.

As much as I love the story, it’s nothing compare to my love for the writing. OH MY GOD, I’m hooked by the way Jenkins write, she wrote with great amount of rich and lush words I can’t even remember how many times I wanted to write down quotes from the book but the problem is, I can’t put the book down. So I think I’m just gonna look for the luxurious passages and quotes in Goodreads now and write them on my wall. I look for her other books immediately after I finished this and add them to my TBR, she easily become one of my favorite author and I will buy whatever piece she has written and will write from now on.

Honestly I expected nothing from this book because this is not the kind of book I usually enjoy but I was wrong, I was dead wrong. And I bet everyone who are not enjoying this type of book will eventually fall for Evelyn. This book has literally change me and my way of thinking, this masterpiece deserve every glowing stars in this world and beyond. So I beg you please, read the damn book and you’ll thank me later.

The publisher asked me to review Descendants of War: Magic’s Demise and after reading the synopsis and some reviews on Goodreads I agree to read and review it.

Here’s the synopis of the book:

Thousands of years ago, the Ancients bestowed the Nine Energies of Magic to certain humans known as Descendants. When Aurora, briefly in possession of all Nine Energies, defeated King Zagan during the Battle of Venom, peace returned to the war-torn queendom of Thurnadan. However, a new adversary has emerged: The Jinx. Far more threatening than Zagan and his army, The Jinx is a disease with a one hundred percent mortality rate. The race to find a cure is on; it is only a matter of time before the disease mutates and becomes capable of killing every living thing in its path.
Terror spreads. The Jinx seems to be unstoppable, especially when fate rests in the hands of the disheartened. A disturbing Seer’s vision and long-neglected maps are the only guidance the people of Thurnadan have in their frantic search for a cure. Turning to lore of the Ancients for answers, a dark Prophecy threatening the end of mankind’s reign is discovered, but a sliver of hope is also found within it’s riddle of verses.
Do the Ancients still live? Will the disease mutates and grow more powerful? And how much time does the queendom have before all are certain to perish?

I finished The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and The Gilded King this week. I absolutely loved Evelyn Hugo and I regret not reading it sooner. I have mixed feeling about The Gilded King, the worldbuilding is confusing and I can’t say I love the story but there’s a certain mystery that I don’t want to miss.

I’ve drafted my review of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and scheduled it to post later this week. I still need to work on the review of The Gilded King though.

Listicle Tag

The lovely Caro tagged me for the Listicle Tag a long time ago, thank you for tagging me love and I’m sorry it took me so long to do this 😂


The Rules

  • Create your own listicle tag, using the prompt from the person who tagged you.
  • Tag the creator of the postnot-so-modern-girl, so that I can read all your brilliant posts and see how the joy of listicles is being spread.
  • Nominate as many people as you want!
  • Set those people the subject/prompt of their listicle post

lineOh no, it’s the Zombie Apocalypse! Which five characters would you want on your team to help you survive as long as possible?

This is a tricky question actually, I could just choose some badass characters but they are usually selfish or super annoying, they might end up sacrifice me or I might end up killing myself. So I have to choose wisely, I have to choose some tough characters who I could stand being around them for quite long time!

First thing first, we need a brain and I can’t think of anyone else beside Hermione, she got brain, bravery, and she’s calm under pressure and assuming I’m her best friend then she won’t have any problem with me. Plus she have magic, she could just flick it and yell some spell and we’re all safe!

We also need a mechanic, in case we need to steal a car or break an ATM machine or whatever it is that require tools, then we need Leo Valdez in the team. He also have a pyrokinetic ability to burn them zombies! But the most important skill he has is humor, he might make a silly jokes that could humor the team!

There’s no doubt we’re going to need food to survive and Piper Mc.Lean could provide it with her cornucopia, it’s the easiest way to get food rather than scavenge the abandoned stores. She also has charmspeak in case we have to charm the zombies to steer clear.

Ezekiel will be the muscle, since he’s an android I doubt the zombies will want to eat his brain. He has super strength and he’s very cute! So I don’t see the reason why I don’t want him in my team.

In case Ezekiel is out of battery, or power (I don’t exactly understand how android works) and we can’t find the energy to jumpstart him then we need another protector who’s as strong as him and I choose Diana the Wonder Woman.

line

So my prompt for you is…..

You have the power to bring five fictional characters to life, who would you choose? And why?

And I tag thee:

No pressure! You don’t have to do this if you don’t want to!

Who would you choose to be in your team in a zombie apocalypse? Do we have the same character?

synopsis

Edward (long live the king) is the King of England. He’s also dying, which is inconvenient, as he’s only sixteen and he’d much rather be planning for his first kiss than considering who will inherit his crown…

Jane (reads too many books) is Edward’s cousin, and far more interested in books than romance. Unfortunately for Jane, Edward has arranged to marry her off to secure the line of succession. And there’s something a little odd about her intended…

Gifford (call him G) is a horse. That is, he’s an Eðian (eth-y-un, for the uninitiated). Every day at dawn he becomes a noble chestnut steed—but then he wakes at dusk with a mouthful of hay. It’s all very undignified.

The plot thickens as Edward, Jane, and G are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy. With the fate of the kingdom at stake, our heroes will have to engage in some conspiring of their own. But can they pull off their plan before it’s off with their heads?

line

review mini

PLOT

I’m clearly not an expert in this Tudor period so I did a looot of googling right after I finished this book, and turns out every historical events in the first half of this book are true, well minus the shapeshifter thingie of course. And the second half of the book is an alternative story for Lady Jane which is really funny and unexpected.

I’m so glad to read a fascinating and refreshing twist of this history, I can’t believe the authors found an interesting way to make me learn history!

WRITING

There are 3 POVs in this book, Jane, Edward, and Gilford which are written by three different authors. I was a bit skeptical about a book written by multiple authors because I hate the transition between different writing styles, but to my surprise, I have no problem with this book at all. The transition is smoothly done, I definitely could not tell that this book is written by different people!

There are some terms, language, and things that are historically wrong. There are even some modern words used in the book, and things that I think hasn’t invented yet in that era. I know I wasn’t supposed to take this book seriously but to be honest this kinda annoyed me.

WORLDBUILDING

We have been warned from the start that this history will be all twisted. So I dived blindly into this book (like really blind, I mean, I don’t read the synopsis and the reviews at all) and I was so shocked by the magical element added in this book (I didn’t even know that there will be magical element). I love the idea of replacing the religion issue in the original history with ridiculous shapeshifting, and how England is divided by two different beliefs, one is Ethian, the shapeshifter, and the other is Verity, who believes Ethian was a curse. This idea surely make this book a lot more fun!

It is a really surprising and unique story, not only the twisted history, but also the alternative story of Lady Jane.

CHARACTERS

I like to think Jane is a mixed between Elizabeth Bennet and Rapunzel from Tangle! She has the same curiousity and intelligency as Liz and plenty of humourous and witty banter as Rapunzel! She is, brave, independent and kind-hearted, I really love her character. She definitely makes it to one of my favorite literary woman list!

Gilford, or G is the sweetest cinnamon roll and has all the greatest husband material! He’s so caring and has a heart as soft as cotton ball! He’s so damn funny, I love reading his banter with Jane, and the slowburning relationship between them really melt my stone cold heart!!

Edward is my least favorite character in this book. There are not a single moment when he actually thinks about his fallen kingdom, all he could think about was to hooked up with a girl, and all the little things he does is to impress a girl! You’re a damn King of England for God’s sake!! Do your job!

I’ve been hearing glowing reviews about The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, so even though the genre is not really my taste but I’m willing to set aside my ego and see for myself what does people love about this book. I’m currently on page 170-ish, I have mixed feeling about the story, it kinda disturb me BUT I LOOVE the writing style!
