Thoughts about Mistborn the final empire

68428-2

Hey everyone 🙂

This post isn’t review of the mistborn series, I just have difficult time reading it, and wanted to know your thoughts about it.

At first, when I asked about this book, everyone compared it to the name of the wind. (huge advertisment) they said, it maybe a bit better than that but I don’t find that exciting. Maybe it’s about my havoic time schedule, I just don’ find it that grabbing, and can’t really connect to the story. So, is it as good as people are telling me?

 

Thanks for your help 🙂

The characters from book that are rather nerve-racking

Hey 🙂

All my posts start with the same, apology that I haven’t posted for a while. Well, this is no exception 😀

Actually what prompted me to write today’s post, is one book called flower in the attics, and one character who was so disgusting. So let’s begin.

  1. Cathy Dolanganger

IMG_20150409_105417

Oh good. I can write a book how much I hate her because she’s disgusting. Not only because that she’s a slut, (even though she is) but because she is disgusting. Seriously, why she always emphasized all the time, that she smart, when she’s dumber her mother! and it is also very unbelievable that every damn guy falls for her, and she manipulates with them. I mean I don’t want to say spoiler, but she agreed to marry a 45-year-old man at the age of Fifteen, but the night before her wedding she fleed with another man, and in synchrony, she was jealous of her own brother! I’m sorry but WTF?! How is she the strong female character, when clearly she’s the weakest role-model! Not a single woman, should forgive her husband jerking around with other women. Not a single woman should let men use her as a sex toy! I mean yes I understand that you are pretty, but I’m sorry, just because you are pretty, that doesn’t mean you can achieve EVERYTHING with your beauty!

2. Eleanor

maxresdefault

Don’t condemn me for asking this question, but what the hell is wrong with Rainbow Rowell? I understand she has fat characters, but she emphasized their weight so often, it kinda makes me uncomfortable. Nobody cares about their weight, I mean nobody. Don’t make me uncomfortable because of it, please. I’m actually fat, but I have no problems with it!

Eleanor is so nerve-racking character, I just wanted to punch her in the face. (Yeah I really wanted to) I don’t know what it is with her, I don’t know, but everything in her makes disgust, but she’s so spineless I just can’t! That book is amazing though.

3. Bridget Jones

Bridget-Jones-Diary-L

Okay, it’s not about character, but the book itself. Bridget is lovely, but still the same problem! What the hell is with fat! I’m sorry, but should I feel uncomfortable because of my weight? Well, I’m sorry but I don’t. Why are you saying that so many women are under stress because of their own body? Please!! Let me accept my body the way it is, without constantly repeating that I ought to be uncomfortable with it. I really want to read a book about the character who is okay with her weight. I really want to. So it’s actually more about emphasizing of being fat, than character.

4. Bella

eeed8cca860cdc25fc2664fbe7d9a0f6

Okay, one question I have is, that why she is always shy?! Why she is always blushing and agh! I don’t like girls who are always uncomfortable, who are always shy and vulnerable. Bella is the reason why I hate twilight. (Well, most characters are there, I think the plot is pretty decent, but the girl who stayed with her boyfriend after he deformed her violently, it’s just disgusting for me.)

My favorite book characters

Hey everyone ^_^

Today I wanted to write down some of my favorite characters, both from Classic, ya or adult. Shortly form every genre.

  1. Master Elodin

ignacio-morales-elodin-the-great-9

Master Eldoin, is the character from the name of the wind by patrick rotfuss, and god he’s just awersome! He’s smart, sassy, handsome and actually openly tells his students that they need to have sex 😀 (Yeah, that one of the best moments from the wise man’s fear)

The art belongs to Ignacio Morales

2. Edmond Dantess

gankutsuou_and_edmond_dantes_by_lepor_promerus-d5f8hsc

Edmon Dantess is the main character of the Count of Monte-Cristo. He is my role model. A man who took what he had to, but when his time came, he made his move! and this picture Is from Anime I think? Pardon me, I just googled it and decided to use this one. I mean this picture perfectly expresses his two sides.

3. Juliet

DickseeRomeoandJuliet

Yes that girl, from classic romantic love story, where every man is a hero, every girl is a fair maiden and vulnuareble, but just look at Juliet! She’s only 13, but look how unruly she is! In the time, where girls believed to be properties of their fathers, she dared to go against her family, and follow her own will! I think Sheakspear was faminist, and not sexist, but that’s another topic. Juliet is one of the under-rated characters, in the era of strong female characters. She’s more unrly than Romeo, and there is one detail that I think is neglected by anyone. So, take attention how Romeo commited suicide and how did Juliet. Romeo drank poison, (painless death) and Juliet put a dagger through her heart. Juliet wasn’t afraid of physical pain, while Romeo was I believe. Otherwise, why he didn’t kill himself with cold dagger?!

4. Tris Prior

tris_prior_fan_art_by_kim_beurre_lait-d7dg7gt

Beatris (Tris) Prior is the protagonist of Divergent trilogy. Most of the YA book follows the magic circle. The girl falls inlove, she’s meek, vunlureble and few chapters later, she turns into a superhero. However, very the beggining Trist is very strong, but she hides her strength in the sake of her own family! great sacrifice, and she doesn’t actually transforms into a superhero. She is what she is, she just starts to reveal her true strength. So, I adore Tris!

5. Elias Veturius

Elias_(bananabooks)

OMG I love this boy! He is one of the main characters, from ember in the ashes (Absolutely magnificent book series!) and he is grown to be a killer, he is trained to be a cold hearted killer, but somehow he is not. He stayed what he really is, not to a monster, but to the decent human being. I love Elias for his strength, for his kindness, for being so pure! It is impossible not to love him! (there is also another character Laia, but god I despise her! She’s like one of those girls, who transform into a superhero, without having any belivable excuse.)

This photo is taken from An ember in the ashes wiki page. BTW read that book, I recooment it!

So what are you favorite book characters? let me know in the comments below 😉

The merciless

18667769

Hey, everyone 🙂

I wanted to write for this book so badly. Partly because I’m disappointed, partly because it was exactly like I anticipated.

Basically Merciless is the crossover of mean girls and the exorcist, and this review contains spoilers. You’ve been warned.

Brooklyn Stevens sits in a pool of her own blood, tied up and gagged. No one outside of these dank basement walls knows she’s here. No one can hear her scream.

Sofia Flores knows she shouldn’t have gotten involved. When she befriended Riley, Grace, and Alexis on her first day at school, she admired them, with their perfect hair and their good-girl ways. They said they wanted to save Brooklyn. They wanted to help her. Sofia didn’t realize they believed Brooklyn was possessed.

Now, Riley and the girls are performing an exorcism on Brooklyn—but their idea of an exorcism is closer to torture than salvation. All Sofia wants is to get out of this house. But there is no way out. Sofia can’t go against the other girls . . . unless she wants to be next. . . .

In this chilling debut, Danielle Vega delivers blood-curdling suspense and terror on every page. By the shockingly twisted end, readers will be faced with the most haunting question of all: Is there evil in all of us?

So basically this book is about hypocrisy, which is widely condemned by the vast majority of authors. So Sofia discovers, that one of her best friends is tied up in the dark basement, and other besties are going to perform the exorcism, even it means killing Brooklyn. Shortly, we discover that oh not, other besties are also great sinners, and they are miserable hypocrites and even Sofia herself, who’s trying to be so nice girl, is responsible for killing her best friend! The real cliffhanger is, is the Brooklyn really possessed or not? I’m not going to answer this question, you read it if you want to find out.

According to for all the comments I’ve read, this book had to be very scary! I mean people were shocked, and that’s why I was deeply disappointed. Whole exorcism and killing are described precisely. Which doesn’t make book scary, it only makes, a little disturbing to read. I don’t know, who is scared to read the description of the chopped head (That’s for instance). Unlike the summer is ended and we aren’t yet saved, this book doesn’t share similar disturbances. You can’t be terrified of it, just will be meh, and walk away. Sorry Horror authors, but blood and guts, don’t make story scary. It just simply don’t.

So I’m really disappointed, I wanted something really scary, not just gory novel with teenage mean girls.

Please watch the book trailer, it is just awesome.

3 things about my self (So interesting)

I am horror addict. I think they have a very interesting plot, but a horrible twist, and can be found very interesting.

I have Five half-siblings and waiting for the sixth one.

As soon as I turned Eighteen, I bought as much beer as I could and got hammered. Great birthday it was!

5 questions from Shazi.

What do you think is the most underrated Disney film?

Emperor’s new groove, definitely! It is the best comedy I’ve ever seen. It is about an emperor who turns into lama, by his evil assistant. He is struggling to come back to life.  That cartoon is hilarious!

Which book would you like to see adapted into a film or TV series?

Hmm… That’s a tough question. Maybe my own? (kidding) but definitely half bad by Sally green or the name of the wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I love Nathan and Gabriel so much, I really want to see them in real life. The name of the wind is the great story but lacks action, so I doubt whether TV series would be as good as the book is.

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Vanilla!

Which book has had the biggest impact on you?

The Count of Monte-Cristo. That book is very special for me, I was twelve when I read it and instantly fall in love with it. Just read it! Please!

Skinny jeans: yay or nay?

The name of the wind

cover_uk

The name of the wind is the epic fantasy, written by Patrick Rotfuss. It was published in 2007, and while reading it I discovered one thing. You can create absolutely magnificent story, without having a single battlefield in it. Shocking isn’t it?

No. I’m not being sarcastic. It is true. Today, when I mention epic fantasy to anyone, they imagine story full of battles, political intrgieus and etc. I love George R.R. Martin and also Jon R.R. Tolkien, but most of the cases, that is boring! I think it’s better to watch battle scene, rather than imagine it. That’s why I was so happy discover the book which was just interesting, instead of focused on action.

Told in Kvothe’s own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen.

The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature.

A high-action story written with a poet’s hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard

Yeah the description is shit. Don’t trust it, and it is not some Harry Potter wizardish story. It is slightly different. You know, when a person asks to you what the story is about you can’t say anthing. Because it is about nothing, but also about everything. But mainly, it is the story of Kvothe, the living legend of his age.

When people ask me, why I love this book so much, there are numerous reasons for it. Personally (and this is very personal opinion) I think if you have good taste in books, you’ll like this book. If you don’t, you won’t. It is very easily noticable when author has decoted years on his work. This is when story is excellent. Let me compare it to Thirteen reasons why. Why is it that TV-series is better and shows more depth? I wonder Jay Asher wrote this book in a year and didn’t let it rest for several months. However, Patrick Rotfuss was writing the name of the wind for 20 years, and this book is as excellent as it humanly can be.

The story itself is quite big, in the mass market paperback, it is more than 1000+ and there is just one scene, which is kind of a boring. Yeah, just a single scene in the huge book. I think it crime that can be forgiven.

So at the end I’m giving 5 out of 5!

The summer is ended and we aren’t yet saved

17331577

Do you like horror stories? If the answer is just yes, keep away from this book.

So the title is very intriguing, it gives the impression of a classic horror story, such as sleepaway camp movie, but without any twist.

Basically, the book starts with a delivery scene, where pregnant girl wishes to slit throat to her doctor. That’s the scene where we met Martin’s mom, the most twisted character I’ve ever read about. She is basically insane, but also the very sweet mother. Martin is a normal boy, whose mother is in love with horror movies. (Which mother allows her 12-year-old son to watch horror movies with her? I’m envious!) Now she gets offered to work with a super popular horror movie, and Martin is sent to the summer camp. Everything is nice, except, well, this is a horror novel.

My thoughts about this story aren’t very clear. At first, I wanted some twist, because it is obvious the book was inspired by sleepaway camp, yet nothing similar. You don’t get that shocking naked Angela bakers scene, you’ll get nothing similar. But on the other hand, it is very atmospheric, and certainly very intense to read. Basically, that’s the purpose of a horror novel right? To make you scary! Stephen King doesn’t scare audience I think, he just makes them say ugh, but this book… Oh god, this is the most twisted minded book I’ve ever read. Not that, nobody gets the happy ending, you just have to be horror addicted to manage reading through the whole story.

At the end, I’m going to give 3.5, just because it is the only horror novel that actually scares you.

 

The count of monte cristo

17264846_10206784322481783_5083210213694724106_n

Hello 🙂

Today I wanted to compare we need to talk about Kevin book to the movie, but I’ve decided to write a short review about the count of monte-cristo, the book which changed my life.

I was quite surprised when I found out, not lots of people have heard about it, that’s really surprising, because I though everyone have read it, I mean everybody! So, I guess it’s because this book is very important for me. Well, if you haven’t read it yet, just go and read it. just simply go and read it!

The story is about 19 years old Edmond dantess, who is happy. He is about to become the captain of the ship and the husband of beautiful girl, his best friends sell him out, and he is thrown in dungs for Fourteen years, where he escapes and arises as the powerful, wealthy count of monte cristo, who is seeking revenge for those, who once wronged him.

This book has everything I mean absolutely everything it is fast passed, has great plot, which isn’t very common for the classic book and, actually has quite good twists, you can never yawn with boredom, which is also very common for lots of book, and you may keep up all night, just to find out how the story is going to end.

and romance… Well, do you remember her beautiful fiancee? she married to his best friend who sold him out, what a drama! You even get an epic love story, and family intrigues, which at one point, remind me Borgias, if you know that tv-show.

So, long story for short, this book is perfect! In every way, and I’m begging everyone, who hasn’t read it, go and start reading right now! Please!

Oh and forget to talk about it, there are several movie adaptations, but keep away! Don’t you watch it! Especially 2003 version, oh god, that’s just DISGUSTING! How they dare to ruin such a perfect book? I want to cry! 😥

Thank you.

My favorite Book couples

Hello again 🙂 I know it’s been only Seventeen hour since my last post, but today the day was so embarrassing I just couldn’t resist but to write the post which I always wanted to. Some of them aren’t actually couples, but I so want them to be 😦

Nathan and Gabriel


My babies 😥 I’m crying !!! What Sally had done to you, just give me a sec, I’m crying.

Nathan byrn and Gabriel boutin are my number one couple, because their romance is so beautiful, though slow passed, we’ve been waiting for two books it to happen and for what? Not good Sally green they deserved better ending than this!!! How can you create such a beautiful chemistry and than destroy so mercelessly? You have no heart!

The photo is taken from tumblr username: breadysetbird

Eleanor and park


There is one simple fact about me that nobody believes, I don’t like couples and especially straight couples! They are so boring! And I didn’t know why I started reading the book maybe because I was running out of reading material, I don’t know, I just know that this is the cutest straight couple I’ve ever read and the book is the most lovely thing you’ll ever read! If you haven’t already. They are so lovely, despite that Eleanor’s obnoxiousness, their romance is just perfect! They are perfect!

The picture is taken from rainbow rowwel’s web-site

Master elodin and Auri


In the picutre only Elodin is drawn but you can enjoy with this beauty 😍 and what kind of a girl deserves such perfection? The girl whose real name we don’t know, and is nicknamed as Auri, (means moon because she’s beautiful) and the one who refuces to speak with anyone including him, but trust me, when you read the name of the wind, you’ll ship these two just like I do.

This masterpiece is created by Amy Winterbreeze

Bast and Kvothe


Another couple from the name of the wind, and I don’t really like Bast, however, their relationship is so affectionate, Bast loves Kvothe so much, you just can’t resist but to shit them, yet there is an obstacle Bast is 200 years old Fae and he has hooves instead of feet and Kvothe is his  master. Real romantic right?

The photo is by Patrick o Bryan I think :/

Draco and Hermione


Oh please I need these two together, please! I love Dramione they would be so perfect 😦 why J K Rowling why? Draco is so much better than Ron. I just ugh!!!! I love them, they need to be together 😦

I believe that’s all. I’ve read twilight, divergent, matched, delirium, Percy Jackson, hush-hush, the selection but nah! None of them made really sense. So who are your favorite couples let me know in the comments 😉 

Letter to Hannah Baker


I just finished reading Thirteen reasons why, I was very hardened by emotions and didn’t know what to do, didn’t want to write a review so I’ve decided to write a letter to Hannah, so let’s beggin.

Dear Hannah Baker,

You are an idiot!

I would have gladly addressed this letter as letter to an idiot,  but I believe in hell or in heaven where your bones are rotting will be lots of idiots, so it’ll be better to make things easier, so, first things first you are an idiot!

Surprised? Are you heartbroken? Are your eyes filling with tears, or neither? Well none of this matters because you are dead, and you will never be able to read this letter or to find out how the others reacted to the recorders that you’ve sent, and what if I tell you that if they cared about your reasons and if they blamed themselves for your suicide, they will be as idiots as you are?

Am I too harsh? You’ve just proved that you are a girl who cries like a baby when she is facing a problem,  a girl who looks to the world through rosed glasses and can’t understand that world is a cruel place. Thanks for proving my theory btw, world is a place for strong people, there is no place for weak like you are, so, others might say about you oh poor girl they were so cruel to her, nobody tried to save her, but nobody is suppose to save you, nobody is ought to take care of you, you are the girl who thinks she is the center of the world, a selfish little girl who thinks world is full of cupcakes and rainbows, well sorry Hannah it’s not.

I can never understand you Hannah and you know why? I’ve been abused mentally (and not only with that) by my family and my classmates for Ten years so I can understand how do you feel, but can I show some compassion? No! Absolutely not! What you wanted to prove with your suicide, that look what you’ve done to me, now please feel sorry about it for the rest of your lives? Well they won’t, and all you did with your suicide is that, you run away from your problems. That’s it. You are very weak Hannah.

Please don’t be idiot in the after life, why you didn’t think that high school one day would be over? Why you wanted others to notice how bad you were, because you are something special? Only little kids believe that! Trust me, people are dealing much worse things that you are, but some of us decide to do something about it, and not just run away from a problem!

So I hope wherever you are you realized what a stupid you were. I hope you understood that suicide is never an option and that the world doesn’t resolve around you, I hope others don’t make you as a role model. I really hope some other people would learn from your example, and they will never make same mistakes as you did.

I know I’m too harsh, but these are the things somebody had to say to you, so sorry, not sorry at all!

Sincerely,
