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
My commentary:

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.

Keep reading

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 😴😴

Nevermoor

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!?!

RECO OF THE WEEK!

What We Leave Behind by Alison McGhee

Synopsis: 

“After his dad commits suicide, Will tries to overcome his own misery by secretly helping the people around him in this story made up of one hundred chapters of one hundred words each.

Sixteen-year-old Will spends most of his days the same way: Working at the Dollar Only store, trying to replicate his late father’s famous cornbread recipe, and walking the streets of Los Angeles. Will started walking after his father committed suicide, and three years later he hasn’t stopped. But there are some places Will can’t walk by: The blessings store with the chest of 100 Chinese blessings in the back, the bridge on Fourth Street where his father died, and his childhood friend Playa’s house.

When Will learns Playa was raped at a party—a party he was at, where he saw Playa, and where he believes he could have stopped the worst from happening if he hadn’t left early—it spurs Will to stop being complacent in his own sadness and do some good in the world. He begins to leave small gifts for everyone in his life, from Superman the homeless guy he passes on his way to work, to the Little Butterfly Dude he walks by on the way home, to Playa herself. And it is through those acts of kindness that Will is finally able to push past his own trauma and truly begin to live his life again. Oh, and discover the truth about that cornbread.”

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

Booking_it_with_mag on insta.

And never be afraid to follow your dreams 🙏🏽♥️
