This or That? Book Tag!


Q1. Physical book or e-book?

Definetly physical book! They smell so much better than the weird hot metal smell of ebooks! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Q2. Audio or book in hand?
Book in hand! I’ve only read 1 preview of an audio book and that was twilight, although I did enjoy it, I still prefer to be reading for myself. Also reading the audio book let my mind wander too much and I couldn’t focus on the book as much!

Q3. Paperback or Hardcover?ย 

Hardcover for sure! They can last so much longer if you keep them in a good condition and the spine doesn’t get all those weird lines on it like paperback does! And some books have different jackets than the actually cover, and that’s always fun to find out! Plus they come with the amazing spines!

Q4. Adult or Young adult?

Young adult! I have read a couple good adult books but I find that they’re too parent ish and mature.

Q5. Series or Stand alone?

I find that series have a bigger and more detailed story, but I hate having to wait for the next book, it’s too much suspense!!! But I also think that some stand alone books are too short and need to have a second book, but ones like Eleanor and park I thought were really good stand alone books!

Q6. Random piece of paper or Bookmark?

I used to always use random pieces of paper or receipts…etc.. But now I use bookmarks a lot more, but I always ruin them quickly!

Q7. Borrow or Buy?

Buy. I like to have the book for myself, in case I lose or ruin a borrowed one, plus I like to reread some! Though I do like borrowing books, to save some money!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ“–

Q8. Breaking the spine or barely opening the book?

Ugh. I hate ruining books but I also hate not reading them! I think I have to go with ruining them over not opening the most!

Q9. Bookstore or Online?

Bookstore. They feel so magical and they always have good vibes! I could spend hours in one! Especially second hand book stores!

Q10. Fiction or Non Fiction?

Fiction.

Q11. Fantasy world or Real life issues?

Aren’t books supposed to be a way for you to escape reality? Not read about more real life problems?

Q12. Kindle, iPad or other?

I much rather not read through electronics, but my iPad comes in handy when I can’t find the book anywhere else.

Q13. Monster read or Short and sweet?ย 

I always find myself going for monster reads, they just have so much more to tell!

Q14. Starry-eyed romance or full-on action?

Both.

Q15. Curl up in a snuggle or bathe in the sunlight?

Sun and reading don’t mix well for me. I get headaches a lot. So u guess curl up in a snuggie, sounds like me…

Q16. Read the review or decide yourself?

Both, sometimes I don’t have the patience to read a review.

Q17. Zombies or Unicorns?

Zombies are so awesome, but I’d rather vampires or demontors for a dark, scary-ish creature. So unicorns.

The 5th Wave.

  
They know how we think.                                                                                                         They know how to kill us.                                                                                                                             They’ve taken everything worth living for.                                                                                                        Now they’ve come to take the things worth dying for.

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. 

After the 2nd, only the lucky escape.

And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive.

After the 4th wave, just one rule applies : trust no one.

Now it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered earths last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brotherโ€”or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

I don’t normally enjoy these type of novels as well as others, but I do like to read them, and I’m certainly glad that I read the 5th wave. Romance, adventure, action, sci-fi, war, aliens, and much more, all fit into 457 beautiful pages. How can it be? This book was quite overwhelming but completely and entirely amazing. I loved Cassie and Evans relationship, and how it always took unexpected turns, leaving you wondering. The novel definetly had a good dose of action, making it interesting and exciting, and always leaving you amazed at just how close Cassie had come to failure and death, but kept her fight. All of the plot twists and cliff-hangers left me constantly thinking, but I think that it mostly made me realize how easily something extremely horrid and threatening can be hidden from us, even from inside us. It made me think about how there could be aliens living on other planets, that have thousands of years more knowledge than we do. There could be aliens staring down at our planet and thinking “Wow, that planet is extremely polluted, they have no idea what they’re doing, don’t they realize that hover are are much quicker and less destroying than they’re little gasoline monstrositys?”. People claim to have seen alien appearances on earth, and they believe that they are here to harm us, to take over but they coul be like Evan, and just want to help us, to create a better world for us. But also, when you think about it, aliens could totally be just like us, but we call them aliens because they don’t reside on earth or maybe they don’t look like us, when really we’d be the word, creepy aliens to them.

Anyways, I thought that this book was well written, and I am looking forward to reading the next one, soon hopefully! I totally think that you guys should read this book, and I reccomend it to all of you!

Darkness Becomes Her.ย ย 

IMG_1469Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With her teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed. Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.ย 

Her search for answers uncovers a message from her long-dead mother: RUN. ย Ari can sense that someone, or something’s getting too close. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she’s being persued.

She knows only one thing: She must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very… Different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying is afraid of her.ย 

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.
I fell in love with this book, from the minute I started it! ย This book is such an amazing fictional fantasy, with crazy cool creatures and a magical city. I definetly reccomend this beautiful book to anyone who likes a good fantasy read! I have yet to read the second book, A Beautiful Evil, but I am definetly looking forward to it!

I picked this book up in a thrift store and was surprised at the amazing read! You never know what treasures you may find when you step into a thrift store! Personally they’re my favourite place to browse through the aisles and see what I can find. I have found so many great books there, and several more interesting hand-me-downs!
