The Last Star

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Trilogy: The 5th Wave

Author: Rick Yancey

Genre: YA, Science Fiction, Dystopia, Post Apocalyptic, Aliens

📖

I gave it 4 stars out of consideration, and I didn’t want to put 3.

I don’t enjoy writing bad reviews, or what some might count as bad or not perfect-I-loved-everything-about-it or even hey-you-should-read-this-is-a-must-read. I like recommending books that I enjoyed, but then the endings come, and they’re so, what the frack is this?

That’s kind of how I felt all the way through the last chapters of The Last Star. Up until the last chapter, I had hopes, the hope that it would end differently, but it didn’t.

Let’s get this party started. First, I have some commentary on some of the chapters, then it comes the final review, and if you haven’t read my previous reviews on these books, you can check them out before reading this one:

Though you might find them a little different from this one, and they were written a long time ago.

Alright, so the warning, Spoilers ahead! Like there are Spoilers if you haven’t read The Last Star. You have been properly warned.

Stars Above – 1.5 and 3.1

The Queen’s Army and Carswell Guide to Being Lucky. Two stories that moved me in different ways.

Series: The Lunar Chronicles

Author: Marissa Meyer

This one will be short and sweet, just wanted to showcase these 2 stories in the Stars Above compilation.

This may contain spoilers for those who had not read any of The Lunar Chronicles books. Beware.

The Queen’s Army (The Lunar Chronicles #1.5)

While I love these books, there is also something very savage about the Lunar stories. Worst of them all is seeing what children in Luna go through, like with this one and what Ze’ev had to face.

The Lunar Chronicles 3: Cress

It doesn’t usually happen, but Marissa sometimes manages to shock me and made me scream and curse at the pages of books, and I had some of those moments with Cress. And the last page took me by surprise, I was so engrossed in it, that I turned and when I saw the Acwnologements page my jaw fell. I knew I would finish this book way too quickly

Author: Marissa Meyer

Series: The Lunar Chronicles

Genre: Sci-fi, fantasy, romance (sort of), YA, Dystopia, Retellings

Starting straightaway…

The King: Eternal Monarch (Special)

From Netflix directly to us

I cannot say how this one is going to turn out but I’ll try my best to not give out much of the story, so mild-spoilers ahead.

Shadows

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Science-Fiction

Well this was a good and bad idea for me. Not the contents of the book, that I loved, but actually starting to read it and finishing it. Let me explain better while telling you what I thought.

The Darkest Star

And then I was done. Wow. The last chapter was pretty normal, but before that everything was really heated.
Genres: YA. Fantasy. Romance. Totally F*ing Awesome

Origin Series

Author: Jennifer Armentrout

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.

The Lunar Chronicles 2: Scarlet

Book Series: The Lunar Chronicles 2

Author: Marissa Meyer

Genres: Young-Adult, Futuristic, Re-telling, Sci-fi

Recommendation: 4.5 ⭐

I liked it, a lot, I think more than Cinder, however for letting us hanging at the beginning in such a way, we wanted more of Kai and Cinder, and instead were greeted by a stranger, for that and for not grasping my attention as I know it should have been grasped, because of it, 4.5 of 5.

Now my thoughts on the whole thing, you will be surprised by how much I liked it.

The Infinite Sea: Honest Review

Author: Rick Yancey

Forget all in the world for hours and get lost in The Infinite Sea that Rick Yancey created for us. Why mention that it is honest? Are they not all honest? Yes, they are but this one felt like it really struck a couple of nerves more than others, and I decided to pour out everything like never before.

This contains spoilers, so read only if you have read The Infinite Sea.

I had my doubts when I started the book, and I started the book because I liked The 5th Wave’s Ending, this one though, took me more than any other book to read, and it was not because it was bad but because nearing the end, when I was 80% done with it, and Ringer was been transformed into an enhanced human and there was nothing to do about it, I stopped reading for some unknown reason, I could not bring myself to finish it because then there will be no more.

Take Me Tomorrow

Author: Shannon Thompson

​“Tomorrow can take me.”​ Truest words spoken and we knew it was going to be good.

Take Me Tomorrow a truly different twist in the dystopian genre.

Let it be known, I am not encouraging drug use because we all know that’s bad for your health, but wouldn’t we want to take a pill that would show you the future? Or at the very least, a glimpse of it?

Opposition

Lux #5

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Genre: Freaking Grand

It ended. Oh My…

No more Daemon Black… yes, that was basically my only thought in a loop. But like everything, life goes on if not ask Katy. I must say she redeemed herself to me on this last book. She pulled together.

Jennifer Armentrout, you are a genius. I don’t know what it was in this book (maybe an unknown visual hypnosis) but I was hooked no matter where I looked. All I have to say to this author is: Thank You.

I’m going to assume you have read the book if not, what are you waiting for? Although if you haven’t read ANY of the Lux Novels then by all the baby aliens everywhere please start, it would be worth your time.
