Two Reviews and a Video

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cinder by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The first thing that I really noticed was that I read the first few chapters. The time just seemed to fly by.

I really liked Cinder and I thought Iko was so cute. I liked Prince Kai and I found myself mildly annoyed with Adri and Pearl.

Story wise I thought it was good. The plot moved a really good pace. I liked the way things unfurled.

But what really had me fascinated was the worldbuilding. I’m a sucker for it. The whole world is so fascinating. I mean cyborgs, androids, and aliens? The moon as a planet? Count me in!

I really liked this book and I’m excited to read more.

The Bell JarThe Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I had heard about this book even before I could grasp what an enigma Sylvia Plath was. I knew the book was about mental illness. But I put off reading it until now.

I feel that Esther as a narrator is very blank. She has personality but it’s diminished. When I was going through my own illness I felt blank inside so I could relate.

I related to this book but the wow factor wasn’t here for me. With her poems I feel there’s so much talent but this book while good just didn’t do for me. I feel if she had written another book then maybe her skills could have grown. I very much prefer.her poems and even her journals. I feel like this book is missing passion.

I finally have my internet back and I have access to my Nook books now that I have a tablet though I kinda wish I would have bought a tablet in the first place. My poor Kobo is going unused.

The Stranger I Married Review + Vlog Update

The Stranger I MarriedThe Stranger I Married by Sylvia Day

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I picked up this book based purely on the cover. I glanced at the title and blurb but lbr the cover got me. Not the original one but the reddish one.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked Gray and Pel as the main. But partway through I grew more intrigued with Trenton and Abby. I legit enjoyed their bits the most. I’m sad this is a single title.

4 Stars. I really liked it but I didn’t love it.

I’m intending to change the layout around here. I also changed the name of the blog but I don’t know if that’s taken affect. I’ll update the url change on the blogger list.
