Guess what? This rarely happens to me but it took me over a month to read The Duke and I, shocking! I know. 📖😵
And I finish half the book and a night and a morning, with some hours of sleep in between and also like an hour of work thrown in there. I mean, it’s outrageous to believe that for the whole of February, I didn’t feel the need to pick up the book and when I did I often put it down after a few pages because I would drift very often and not know what I was reading, the words would not compute.
I’m sorry for this author, JQ, but maybe it’s something in her narrative, and I’m sorry for all the fans out there but it’s the truth. Alright, alright. I will begin to talk a bit more about the plot and story and will also compare it with the Netflix show, I watched it before reading this. So… possible spoilers ahead.👀
Let’s get this PoV started… I was so excited and I read with excitement up until some points at the end that had the capacity to slow my reading progress but at the same time I wanted to finish because I like the story as a whole, these books and movies were a big part of my life in the past and so I wanted to continue and see what Edward thought for sure, I didn’t expect him to be so mopey at times.
Genres: YA. Fantasy. Romance. Totally F*ing Awesome
This is not going to be easy. Also this is going to be so incredibly full of my really inner thoughts. Get ready.
And then I was done. Wow. The last chapter was pretty normal, but before that everything was really heated. I will try to keep the spoilers to a minimum because I want you guys to read it without knowing the main events. However since the first chapters I have been stopping and writing little notes about the moments that got to me.
There are so many moments in this one, I will try to be organised and direct.
If you have not read any of the books in the Shadow World, specially The Mortal Instruments, then I seriously recommend that you first read those and then this one, and if you do not know what this one is about or who is the main character, then please stop reading this, because it contains spoilers for those who are new to the Shadowhunters world. That said, welcome and I hope you share my thoughts on this one.
I read The Maze Runner a long time ago, so my memories might be a little too old. I read this one before the movie came out, just to make sure I had all the facts and that in it (the movie) everything was in order. It was accurate enough but many details were missing.
The Maze Runner book though, I remember I read like thirty percent of it and then stopped even though it is a dystopian book I did not feel like carrying on, but then picked it up after reading other books and saying: I have to finish it, I already started. And by the end of it, James convinced me.
I will do this one quick and to the point, sort of. Maybe not so quick.
Book and Movie
Alright, as many of you may know, I don’t normally do movies here but I haven’t done 50 shades the book either and since I saw the movie, I felt like I should let it out of my system. Then I decided to make a little combo just for the sake of it and because Jamie is an awesome actor.
FSOG the book
Many of you know that it was originally thought as a Twilight fan fiction, no matter what anyone might try to say to deny that, and let us face it, dearies, the resemblance is there, if you want a short list of how they are alike, then I can give it to you now.
Well hello readers! Here we are again. Another book or books, another post full of my inner thoughts.
If you are a regular to Books Everywhere, then you might know Ms. Shana Abé, author of the Drákon Series and many other books.The Drákon Seriesis by far one of my favourite stories, and of course Shana is one of my absolute favourite authors, since she is one of the few who actually makes me read descriptions and pay attention to the little things in a book (although I know I’ve said that I don’t) because if you don’t know those details, then you end up completely lost and have to go back a chapter or two and find out what truly happened.
But enough of that, you are reading this because you want a new book to read or you love these two in The Sweetest Dark Series. Let us begin.
I mean seriously, I spent like 5 or 10 minutes after I was done with the book looking through wiki and Gayle’s official website for another piece of Adam and Mia, and you know what I found? You know it, Nothing!
