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.

OH. MY. GOD. NO, seriously, Oh my God. If you have not read Me Before You, then I highly suggest that you stop reading my review this instant, because this review will contain spoilers about Me Before You. If you don’t really mind, then be my guest, keep reading. OKAY, SO WE HAVE TO ADDRESS THE FACT THAT WILL DIED RIGHT? And I thought that was the MOST. HEARTBREAKING. SHIT. EVER. Until I read this book, the book AFTER WILL’S DEATH, and I’m just there like NOPE. JUST. OMG. I mean, I never thought that I needed a sequel after […]

I read and reviewed this book for Great Imaginations’ Forgotten Friday in the month of February, and I was originally doubtful about this book. I mean, I have not heard about it before and that made me suspicious HAHA. But my co-bloggers from Great Imaginations were raving about this book, screaming that I should start reading it soon because it was fantastic, and oh my God, I was so glad that I actually listened to them. Naturally, I started off this book with high expectations, especially since both Kara and Lyn already bought the second book, and I’m just like WOW, […]

Aha, that gif sums up my whole damn review of this book. THIS BOOK. I have to admit that I’m one of those many many people who read this book because of the movie trailer. I mean, how could I not? The movie trailer was heartbreaking, and I knew right away that I needed this book. Unfortunately it was sold out everywhere, and I managed to snag an e-book of it on Overdrive. SO HOORAY. I was legit scared of reading it, and my God, I was right to be scared. Here’s a warning: Don’t read this book in public because […]

I was pretty dubious about this book at the start, because I have to admit that I didn’t really like the introduction. The main character started off too arrogant for my taste, but after each turn of the page (or rather the Kindle), I warmed up to her. Her arrogance became one of her many charming traits. There were certain parts of the introduction that I was confused about, like whether her name was Jane Doe or Janey Doerr? And to be honest, even after the whole book, I still have no idea what her name was. But I guess it doesn’t […]
