Cuando Me Veas

When You See Me

Original Title: Cuando Me Veas

Author: Laura Gallego

Genres: YA, Drama, Fiction

I feel I must warn you that this one is full of Spoilers, as in I will immediately tell you what happened at the end of the book, because it got stuck in my mind and I could not stop replaying it. So if you want to read this book at some point, I do not suggest you read this, only know that it is good and I absolutely recommend it, since most (All) of Laura’s books that I have read in my life are so freaking good, that it is unbelievable. Like: Idhun’s Memories.

Now, let us begin with some details about the book, and once again, there are spoilers ahead.

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy

Authors: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Ress Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman

Genre: Short Stories, Fantasy, Young Adult

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.

The Maze Runner

Author: James Dashner

Genres: Dystopian, Post-apocalyptic, Science-Fiction

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.

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

Author: Jack Thorne

Story by: J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne

This is not going to be easy. Stories from the past might blend in. Tales of old might be thrown in here. If you read it, you surely loved it, if you saw the play, you surely loved every part of it.

I cannot believe I did not write about this one before, my lack of Harry Potter reviews in the blog is by no means something you should worry about, nor something that should make you think that I do not love the books and movies because I do but the Wizarding World is simply to wide and amazing, and across all my networks, Pinterest specially, you can tell just how much it is that I love it after all this time. Let us begin.

The Fiercest Joy

Author: Shana Abé

Book 3 in The Sweetest Dark Trilogy. And book 8 in the Drakon world. Probably the numbers will change if Shana decides to write extra books about this story, this wonderful world she has created cannot be described in mundane words, it is too wonderful and so full of magic but I will do my best to convince you.

If you have read my previous post about these series (The Sweetest Dark) then you might be prepared for what it is coming now. It is all about the magic, and the drakon; it might be short but it will be sincere. Here it is.

The Lunar Chronicles 1: Cinder

By Marissa Meyer

Cinder, book 1 in The Lunar Chronicles, a futuristic twist to the classic story of Cinderella.

This one will be short, since for the first time I do not have much to say. Marissa Meyer knew how to grab all those beloved characters from classic fairy tales that we know and love, and somehow mixed them into a world of more wonder with a few splashes of enough strangeness to keep you guessing. Let us begin.

The Hunger Games Trilogy – Review

Author: Suzanne Collins

Well it took me about 5 to 6 years to read them but here I am, and I am done with all of them, I think I broke my own personal record with this one, I read all three books in two weeks give or take. Maybe you are saying that is not fast but between work and life, it is fast.

I really did not have any intention of reading them anytime soon but for some reason, re-watching The Hunger Games movies made me want to read, I picked them up and started with the first line that I already knew, and then got past it, the weird first-person narrative. And then I couldn’t stop, I knew the whole story but it was an easy read, and it was good to read something as if for the second time; since I really like the movies I didn’t know how I would feel with the books.

I cannot really say which I like best, so I will leave it at: they are both good.

Lady Midnight

Do I need to say is by Cassandra Clare? You probably already know that, but there I said it. Now, I might have to warn you that this review: could contain some minor spoilers, that I might talk a lot about Julian Blackthorn, and that I freaking loved it! Even more so than the other 10, I was as surprised as anyone else, because I love TMI and Clockwork Princess became one of my favorite books, but Lady Midnight was just too F**king Awesome!

And I know you will enter my chaotic thought process… thank you for being here. What you are about to read has some minor spoilers and it was written during and shortly after I read LM.

Intimate Enemies

Author: Shana Abe

Let us begin with this, the book is not for everyone. That said, I loved it!

How many times do I say that about a book? Quite often, I know, but if you know me then you know I mostly write here about the books I enjoyed.

Intimate Enemies was difficult for me to really start reading, I had it on my phone for some time actually, and I had read the first page I think, first line and was like, eh, maybe not, even though it was Shana’s and I love how she writes, one of my favourite authors, in case you didn’t figure that one out due to the extensive quotes I have all around from her books, and the fact that most of my reviews are about books by her.

I strayed from the path there, sorry. Back to IE, it has a certain uniqueness to it; the book is set years ago, as in 1170’s more or less, and by the title you can guess that this two clans are not really friendly, until Arion and Lauren are old enough to know they have a thing for each other. Are you planning on reading the book? Don’t worry there is not much spoiler here.

The Sweetest Dark Books

By Shana Abé

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 Series is 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.
