A Very Quick Review: This is the sequel to Cinder, of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. So I’m not going into great detail besides the basics so I don’t give anything away to anyone wanting to read these books. To sum up, it’s the perfect sequel. I still feel Cinder is hoping for a way to feel accepted for her differences, not just by others but by herself as well. We meet Scarlet, who is an amazing new character and is searching for truth as secrets are revealed throughout this story.
And I loved the ending. Exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more! Looking forward to book 3!!

My summary: Nigeria, 2066. The town of Rosewater clusters around an alien biodome. Kaaro has been here since the start. He is a sensitive, a finder who can locate anything in the xenosphere, a psychic dimension. But he is not alone. The sensitives are dying. And soon, Kaaro will have to fight for all he has.
My rating: 4/5
Here’s another one I picked up just…because! The synopsis on the back is even shorter than my summary up there, I didn’t really know anything going in, and didn’t really have any expectations. Overall, while it’s not the kind of thing that I usually read or that usually hooks me, I was engaged with this book and enjoyed it well enough.
How’s your day going? 🤔🤔
Today is the fourth day of my December Bookish Challenge, Green Books! This was surprisingly difficult. You don’t realize how few books you have of a specific colour until you need them for a challenge 😅
Today has been ROUGH and it’s only 11:30. My job is very busy and though it keeps me on my toes, it can get seriously exhausting. I can already see myself taking a nap after work 😴😴
I knew I had a likeness somewhere. It’s not recent, of course. He must have been in his twenties or thirties. He’d be well over a hundred now. Quite a good looking young man, was the infamous Ezra Squall, as you can see - although I suppose that’s an unfashionable opinion these days. For goodness sake, don’t tell anyone I called a mass murderer handsome.“
Who else freaked out during the reveal?😅😬 I mean I kind of saw it happening but it didn’t really click to me yet.
Also "I knew I had a likeness somewhere” does this mean ezra Squall is Dame Chandas’ type?🤔😂🤣
I mean, no one found it odd that Dame was simping over a picture of Squall at night!?!

“I was having the most lovely dream.”
The Black Fairy’s Curse, Karen Joy Fowler
So after losing my mom two months ago I decided I had to follow my dreams just like she would want me to. She wouldn’t want me to be scared. She’d want me to just go for it. And one of those dreams was to start a book blog. So that’s exactly what I did.
So go follow my blog

And never be afraid to follow your dreams 🙏🏽♥️
