The odd thing about people who had many books was how they always wanted more.
― Patricia A. McKillip, The Bell at Sealey Head
This is my first historical fiction of the year and it was okay. Not particularly good but not that bad either. But I love the fact that I could learn a bit about French Revolution from the book #historyisbloody #nowIknowhowFrancegottheirflagcolour #MarieAntoinettewardrobeisgoals
- The Raven Cycle #1; The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The book is good and I sort of understand the reason the series is one of the most hyped books in YA genre. I was sad when I found out that Noah is dead, very dead and my heart broke when Blue relayed Noah’s message to his parents during the funeral.
Tell her, whispered Noah.
Blue took a breath. “Mrs Czerny. he’s sorry for drinking your birthday schnapps.”
For a moment there was silence. Mr Czerny and Noah’s sister looked from Blue to Noah’s mother. Noah’s father opened his mouth, and then Mrs Czerny started to cry. None of them noticed when Blue walked away from the grave.
- Alex Rider Series by Anthony Horowitz:
– Book 2: Point Blanc ⭐⭐⭐
– Book 3: Skeleton Key ⭐⭐⭐
– Book 4: Eagle Strike ⭐⭐⭐
The plots are starting to get repetitive.
Rebirth’s storyline similarities and Yu Wo’s novel titled Dominion’s End is so uncanny. And the fact that the webtoon’s creator is Chinese made me think that there might be a bit of plagiarism involve. But, there’s a chance that it might be a coincidence. Well, who knows. And, My Dear Cold-Blooded King has one of the best music. Period. #handsomeguyswithlonghairaredoublehandsome
- Lookism ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Super Secret ⭐⭐⭐
- I Love Yoo ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Lookism and I Love Yoo are my favourites. The bullying in South Korea is so severe that I’m glad that I live in Malaysia.
