The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

World: Panem

Author: Suzanne Collins

Prequel to The Hunger Games

For the book review of The Hunger Games, check out that link you just passed, back, there you go, that one. 🙂

Now, let’s get this party started, beginning as usual (almost usual) with my thoughts as I read the book. It was not easy to stop and jot down some thoughts while reading this one, especially because it was my first time reading on my phone, on Amazon Kindle, but I made it work, and the note thing on Kindle made it much easier. Though I was saving up ‘quotes’ too, so bear with me.

There is so much to say, and I better give it to you straight and without delay, this is mostly my thoughts while reading, inmeditely after, or right in the middle of things, so pardon my scattered ramblings, but it had to be like this.

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: The Lost World

Book: Ghosts of the Shadow Market

Authors: Cassie Clare 

Genre: Pain, YA, more sorrow

Some of these reviews are way quicker than others, not only because they are short stories but also because I was not entirely stopping on all of them to jot down my thoughts, so things slip a bit out of my grasp when I actually write the review but be advised there might be some spoilers here, for those who don’t know much about the Shadow World. There are way too many books on it (which is great), and I’m grateful that I have read most of them. The Eldest Curses is the only big one that I’m missing right now.

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: The Land I Lost

Book: Ghosts of the Shadow Market

Series: Shadowhunters. Shadow World

Is going to be short, but I wanted to relay just how amazingly good it was, that even after reading all the Shadow World books there is still room for the little stories, and we will still love them all as if they were part of a series.

His Dark Materials Trilogy

Author: Philip Pullman

Genre: Fantasy, High Fantasy, Science Fantasy

So Fantasy, yes.

I read these books a long time ago so bear with me.

The main thing I always remember about His Dark Materials books is that I found them utterly fascinating and I could not stop reading after finishing the first one, the second and third had to be read and they were far more exciting than the Northern Lights. I’m not going to go into it book by book but probably jump around between the three, I hope you are ready.

origin book 2 burning shadow

The Burning Shadow

Series: Origin

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Genre: Holy Alien Babies. Fiction. Drama. Supernatural. 

Alright so, I tried to stop and give you a briefing as I was reading this one like I did with The Darkest Star, but I started in Ch 19. You’ll just have to believe that before that moment, everything was good and I couldn’t stop reading; afterward, I forced myself to stop and put down the book (The Burning Shadow obviously) to write random (not so random) notes.

The Darkest Star

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.
