In a world where ash falls from the sky, and mist dominates the night, an evil cloaks the land and stifles all life. The future of the empire rests on the shoulders of a troublemaker and his young apprentice. Together, can they fill the world with colour once more?In Brandon Sanderson's intriguing tale of love, loss, despair and hope, a new kind of magic enters the stage— Allomancy, a magic of the metals.

I would like to thank Josephine from Word Revel and Elaine for forcing me to buy this HUGE book while they were visiting me at Kinokuniya. This book and its series have been my life ever since then, and I don’t think I’ll move on. NOT ANY TIME SOON, OR MAYBE NEVER.

I tried to listen to the audio book of The Final Empire, BUT NOPE. Definitely not a great idea, because I got hopelessly lost. But the book. Oh my God. It captured my attention since the first page and all through to the last page. I was happy, sad, heartbroken, hopeful and practically every emotions that existed. I think it stands to say that I definitely bawled like a baby while reading this book. My emotions were everywhere and I just wanted to save these characters.

I honestly love every part, every words in this book,  I was really obsessed with it. I mean, this book is GODDAMN GENIUS and you can bet everything that this will be THE series that I recommend (more like FORCE) everyone to read, after any Sarah J. Maas books, of course.

To be honest, I wanted to learn more about each and every one of the characters, but I suppose there will be time for that in the other books in this series. But I fell for each and every one of them, including the main villain of the book. That was surprising for me, because I generally do not go for evil LEGIT EVIL characters.

I love how The Final Empire was very plot-driven and fast-paced. I almost thought I was having a heart attack while reading it, because it was just SO. FREAKIN. INTENSE. And when things happened, I had to take a moment to stop myself from crying because this book was just so damn heartbreakingly gooood.

Review: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

Furthermore was everything I never expected and more. MORE. MORE. This book was actually in the Middle Grade genre, and to be honest, I don’t really read MG books. But it was from TAHEREH MAFI and if you’ve read the Shatter Me trilogy, you would know that you should definitely read ALL HER BOOKS, MIDDLE GRADE OR NOT. Furthermore is really REALLY CUTE and well-written. I actually fell in love with Tahereh’s writing at first page because it was really good. I feel that everyone should definitely read this book BECAUSE. IT. IS. AMAZING. Like, hello if you rate this below […]

AND THAT CONCLUDES THE END OF THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS HOORAY! I was really really impressed by the way Rick Riordan ended off this whole series, with a whole lot of explosions and deaths and whatnots obviously. I was kinda sad that there were no POVs by Percy Jackson, but I guess it’s time for him to take a break. After all, he was from the first Percy Jackson series. ALSO, I did get to learn more about the other characters, such as Leo and Nico. NICO. OMG. MY HEART. Have I said how much I completely adore Nico, despite […]

The Possibility of Somewhere was everything that I have always wanted in a book. It deals with racism and prejudice and oh my God, I cried so damn hard! SERIOUSLY, THIS BOOK IS REALLY GOOD I read it in one sitting. It was heartbreaking and yes, I knew I would cry before this book even reached its climax, because I could feel the emotions. The sadness, the joy, the heartbreaks, I could feel them all. I was emotionally invested in the characters, especially Eden. Eden was strong and modest in her own way. She always thinks the worst of herself […]

Review: Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly #3) by Susan Dennard

Did this book killed me? YES. Okay, not literally, but it broke my heart so badly that I thought I would die BOOHOO. Yeah, I’m a drama queen heheheh. ANYWAY, to be honest, I started off this whole series doubting it. I mean, I didn’t really like any stories that happened before the 20th century so obviously I was thinking twice about reading this series. BUT THEN it was by Susan Dennard and there were zombies and people dying, and I knew I had to read it. I never thought I would get emotionally attached to the characters, but I […]
