A book about a master thief? SIGN ME UP.

When I saw that Harper Collins India was going to be publishing the first four books in Megan Whalen Turner’s The Thief series here in India with the GORGEOUS new covers, I was beyond excited. I only requested the first two, but being the awesome sauce humans that they are, they sent me all four books and now I’m going to have an amazing time bingeing through the series! #BingesAreTheBest

My thoughts about The Thief:

·         As I said before, I was VERY VERY excited about this book. Say the words ‘Master Thief’, and my mind automatically shifts to Kaz (aka Dirtyhands) in the Six of Crows duology. I couldn’t wait to experience Gen’s world, see the cunning thief that Gen promised to be and pretty much find myself a new favourite character.

·         The Thief was a very informative book. It had a lot of world building and introduction to the political climate. If I didn’t have the next three books to read right after, I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much.


·         While this book had GREAT WORLD BUILDING, it had very little else. In Gen, I didn’t find a master thief or a skilled manipulator. Instead, rather than a Thief, I would call him a very skilled explorer.  For three quarters of the book, we saw him being taken out of prison, walking across countries and complaining about food. He seemed like a half acute observer, and until they reached the Temple, there was NO THIEVEING HAPPENING.

·         Honestly, if there was one thing I could have changed, it would have been to describe HOW Gen stole, or rather, made him more shrewd and cunning – something. Even as plot twists are revealed, it seemed like the entire book was based on an uncalculated risk and pure luck.

·         Obviously, Gen wasn’t ALL I wanted him to be, but that didn’t mean I didn’t like him anyway. His carefree attitude, how he admitted that he could be wrong, and the promise of who he would be from the next few books, all seemed promising, I just didn’t get it in book one.

·         I LOVED THE RELIGION AND THE STORIES. Gen and the Magus (the King’s right hand man) tell these stories about the Ancient Gods that I really loved for the pure amount of thought that went into them, and how much they contributed into building this world up.

·         The Thief was a quick read, but it didn’t feel like a great book itself. It felt like a prequel – setting us up for the real adventure, which I am very excited to read about.

Do I recommend this series? Yes, but I would consider this book a prequel to it.

It’s a simple, quick and fun read that I’m hoping gets more complex as I dive in deeper. 3.5 stars.

Blurb Description: Carver Briggs never thought a simple text would cause a fatal crash, killing his three best friends, Mars, Eli, and Blake. But now Carver can’t stop blaming himself for the accident and even worse, a powerful judge is pressuring the district attorney to open up a criminal investigation.  Luckily, Carver has some unexpected allies: Eli’s girlfriend, the only person to stand by him at school; Dr. Mendez, his new therapist; and Blake’s grandmother, who asks Carver to spend a “goodbye day” together to share their memories and say a proper farewell. Soon the other families are asking for their own goodbye day with Carver—but he’s unsure of their motives. Will they all be able to make peace with their losses, or will these goodbye days bring Carver one step closer to a complete breakdown or—even worse—prison?
“One of the most stunningly heartfelt, lump-in-your-throat novels I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Hold on to your heart: this book will wreck you, fix you, and most definitely change you.” —Becky Albertalli, author of Morris Award winner Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
Tender, honest, moving, and lyrical. His characters live and breathe. Ahh, lucky me. Lucky us. Zentner is the real thing.” Benjamin Alire Sáenz, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and Printz Honor winning author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
It’s Monday Morning right now. I finished this book over a day and a half ago, but I haven’t been able to organise my thoughts about it, and so I just decided to pour them all out onto my review

·         Goodbye Days was EASILY one of my most anticipated reads of the year. I ADORED Jeff Zentner’s The Serpent King and all the heart break and hope it made me feel, and I was so excited for what he would do with Goodbye Days.

·         That being said, I REALLY REALLY wanted to enjoy Goodbye Days. I think Jeff is an AMAZING person, I love his writing style and this book IS THE PERFECT SET-UP FOR HEARTBREAK.

·         I lost a friend recently. We weren’t ‘best’ friends by any means, but we were friends, and his death was so senseless and so reckless and it just shocked me that life could end that easily, and I really wanted to feel something with this book as the protagonist loses his THREE best friends.

·         Goodbye Days WAS NOT what I thought it would be. For starters, I didn’t once FEEL that overwhelming grief that I wanted to feel, and that I felt when I heard the news about my friend. The book fell TOTALLY flat in this aspect, and more than feeling the grief, the main focus of this was getting back to ‘normal.’ It’s just how I felt – maybe not AS much with Carver, but definitely with Jesmyn.
Image result for GOODBYE DAYS JEFF ZENTNER

·         Another thing I couldn’t wrap my head around was Carver and his dead best friend’s girlfriend – Jesmyn. I would have liked them as friends, I REALLY WOULD HAVE, but I KNEW that he was developing feelings for her, and this feeling or wrongness settled around me that I couldn’t shake. I liked that they hung out, I LOVED that they had each other for support but it still felt all sorts of wrong to me.

·         I did LOVE two very specific characters in the book – Nana Betsy and Georgia. Nana Betsy was honest and good and kind of an awesome grandmother (I went and gave mine a long hug after) and I FELT HER PAIN. More than anything else, I FELT HER PAIN. It felt like the pain I expected from Carver, but didn’t get. Georgia is Carver’s older sister and she too is all kinds of awesome. They made the book a whole lot better.

·         I also wish we had MORE of The Sauce Crew flashbacks, and less Jesmyn and Carver (The Sweat Crew) because I feel like even AFTER the Goodbye Days for each of them, that I BARELY KNEW THEM, And HOW DO I FEEL SAD FOR PEOPLE I DON’T KNOW?

·         Did I cry? YES. Big fat tears. This was a GOOD BOOK. It was highly emotional (and brought back memories from four months ago when my friend died) and DEFINITELY a good story, that I KNOW could have been better,

I would recommend Goodbye Days – it’s a thought provoking read, but not as much as I would shove The Serpent King into your arms and faces. 3 stars.

Blurb Description: Anise Sawyer plans to spend every minute of summer with her friends: surfing, chowing down on fish tacos drizzled with wasabi balsamic vinegar, and throwing bonfires that blaze until dawn. But when a serious car wreck leaves her aunt, a single mother of three, with two broken legs, it forces Anise to say goodbye for the first time to Santa Cruz, the waves, her friends, and even a kindling romance, and fly with her dad to Nebraska for the entire summer. Living in Nebraska isn’t easy. Anise spends her days caring for her three younger cousins in the childhood home of her runaway mom, a wild figure who’s been flickering in and out of her life since birth, appearing for weeks at a time and then disappearing again for months, or even years, without a word. 
Complicating matters is Lincoln, a one-armed, charismatic skater who pushes Anise to trade her surfboard for a skateboard. As Anise draws closer to Lincoln and takes on the full burden and joy of her cousins, she loses touch with her friends back home – leading her to one terrifying question: will she turn out just like her mom and spend her life leaving behind the ones she loves
Family + Surfing + Skateboarding + Romance + Summer = The PERFECT Recipe for a GREAT BOOK.

I was SO excited to read Girl Out Of Water because a) IT’S SUMMER AND WHO DOESN’T LOVE A GREAT SUMMER-Y READ? And also b) IT’S A SUMMER-Y READ.

In a nutshell, Girl Out Of Water is one of the best contemporary books I’ve read all year because it focuses on MORE than just a romance but all things family, surfing and life.
My thoughts:

·         I LOVED ANISE. It did take me a little while to understand her, and a little while to deal with her HUGE Fear of Missing Out, but I ended up loving her. She’s competitive, headstrong, secure in who she is and determined to be the best at what she tries. It was so refreshing to see someone like her on paper (a complete contrast of me)

·         THIS WAS ALL ABOUT FAMILY. I’m always upset when families don’t have a strong enough role in YA Contemporaries (HELLO. They’re LIVING with their parents – how are they never around/ given permission for everything?) but Girl Out Of Water was nothing like that. I loved EVERYONE is Anise’s family (except her mom) but especially her dad. He gave Anise her own space, was there when she needed him to be (WITH FOOD SO BONUS POINTS) but most importantly, he treated her like an adult. SO REFRESHING AND I LOVED IT.

·         Another thing I LOVED about this was how this book really got into Surfing and Skateboarding. I could never do either (even though the water feels like I second home to me – I’m a swimmer) but I LOVED THE FACT THAT IT WAS THERE AND SUCH A BIG PART OF THE PLOT.

·         This book wasn’t PREDICTABLE (YAY!). I thought Anise’s mom would come back – she didn’t. I thought she would get in trouble for leaving with Lincoln on a day trip but it wasn’t blown out of proportion. I was JUST SO GLAD it didn’t follow the norms books usually do.


A MUST READ book for this summer. It has all the things you need – cute boys, diversity, beaches, family, surfing and most importantly FOOD. GO READ IT!

Stacking The Shelves #28 - The One With All The Review Copies

If the description on the right bar didn't clue you in, I'm eighteen years old, an "adult." (WHAT?) and so I've decided to be mature and responsible and so I've actually kept a track of the amount I've spent on books so far! #adultingWHAT

In the last three months, I've bought four books which is such an accomplishment for me, but I've decided to STOP for a while as I DROWN UNDER ALL MY REVIEW COPIES! I also ini

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme about all the books you added onto your shelves over the last week, and is hosted by Tyga's Reviews! Here are some of the books I stacked onto my shelf this week!
REVIEW COPIES:

FROM BLOOMSBURY INDIA:
1. We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan
Told in verse from two authors I've heard nothing but great things about but haven't read yet, I read this book in an hour and a half, in just one sitting. It was intense, quick and thought provoking, and it just makes you think about how hard other people have it.
The Names They Gave UsI definitely recommend it!

2. The Names The Gave Us by Emery Lord
I have an ARC of the newest Emery Lord which releases in India in June and I AM SO EXCITED TO DIVE IN! While her only other book that I've read, When We Collided was not my favourite, I LOVE what people are saying about this one and I'll be diving in very soon!

3. Song Rising by Samantha Shannon:
I read this ENTIRE series over the last two weeks and I AM SO I LOVE. It was everything I needed in a fantasy series and the world building, the characters and the power that everyone has is BRILLIANT! Also #Paiden is my biggest ship ever, and I can't WAIT for book four than Samantha Shannon is slowly teasing us with *dies*

We Are Okay FROM PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE lNTERNATIONAL:
1. We Are Okay by Nina LaCour:
Nina La Cour is another contemporary author that I've been meaning to read for forever, but I just haven't gotten to! I'm SO SO EXCITED to won her latest book because it looks and sounds wonderful, and EVERYONE has said that it was SUCH a good book and I can't wait to get started on this supposed marvel. SOON I TELL YOU. #TheseDamnTBRs

2. The Careful Undressing Of Love by Corey Ann Haydu
I just finished reading this book this week and it was SO GOOD! It was such a different kind of book, not at all your usual contemporary. This is all about a Street where any boy a girl on that street loves is destined to die sometime in hie life. Filled with traditions, curses and love, this book is strange and mystical and  I highly recommend you get reading!

FROM USBORNE PUBLISHING:
1. The Last Summer Of Us by Maggie Harcourt
I read Maggie Harcourt's second book, Unconventional this January and well, it was the MOST ADORABLE BOOK EVER. And so, I HAD to request her other book from the lovely folks over at Usborne and they SENT IT TO ME! EEK! The Last Summer of Us is all about road trips, friendship and growing up and I AM SO EXCITED!
Broken Sky (The Broken Trilogy, #1)

2. Broken Sky by L.A.Weatherly (The Brokes Trilogy #1)
Instructions for a Second-hand HeartI read LA Weatherly's Angel trilogy when I was twelve and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I've been hearing all the great things people are saying about it and I'm VERY excited to dive in. Also, doesn't it look so gorgeous in it's simplicity?

3. Instructions of a Second Hand Heart by Tamsyn Murray
Not only does this look REALLY pretty, but also sounds unique. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to read a book about a girl who wishes everyday for a life without her brother and then after a terrible accident has to deal with the boy who got his heart.

FROM HARPER COLLINS INDIA:
1. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
2. The Queen Of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner
3. The King Of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner
4. A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS SERIES? It's based around a master thief who claims he can steal absolutely anything. So, for his troubles, he is thrown into the King's dungeons and the way he can earn his freedom is to steal an impossible item for the King. Sounds cool? I think so! Harper was being AWESOME when they sent me all four books that have been released in India and I can't WAIT to start reading! Which should be today!

The DeviantsAs I Descended5. As I Descended by Robin Talley:
If you haven't heard me say if before, Robin Talley's What We Left Behind was a very important book to me. I'm BEYOND THRILLED That Harper has published this book in India, which is all about a high school power couple, the girl who stands in the way of the dreams and the murder and madness that ensures. Based off of Shakespeare's Macbeth I'm SO EXCITED to dive into the book.

6. The Deviants by CJ Skuse
Based of Enid Blyton's The Famous Five, these five protagonists used to call themselves The Fearless Five and they're all grown up. Also, one of them is dead and animosity is high and I CANNOT BE MORE EXCITED FOR THIS. The Famous Five were one of my favourite crime solvers in when I was a kid and YAY!

Song of the Current (Song of the Current #1)FROM NETGALLEY:
1. Song Of The Current by Sarah Tolscer
Okay, so A) HOW BEAUTIFUL IS THIS COVER and B) I've heard nothing but great things from SO MANY BLOGGERS, Including my Sunday Street Team Co-Host, Helena Barral and I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT.

The Broken Ones (The Malediction Trilogy, #0.6)3. The Broken Ones by Danielle Jensen
I HAVE LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT The Malediction Trilogy, which was one of the first series' I read as a blogger and finished in tears last year. I AM SO EXCITED FOR this prequel novella and for everyone to read it! AAH.

The Love Interest4. The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich
I got approved to read this book as a part of the FFBC Blog Tour and it sounds SO SO BRILLIANT. It's about two boys who are operatives and need to recruit that same girl into their organisation. She must choose either boy, and the who who loses, dies. If that's not complicated enough, the boys are slowly developing feelings for each oter!

Girls Made of Snow and Glass5. Girl Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust
A FEMINIST Fantasy that is also a snow white retelling? SIGN ME UP! This is about the Evil Queen and how she marries Snow White's father and then it's also told from Snow's point of view with how her father marries a new woman who is horrible to her. I don't think we've ever seen a book with both viewpoints and I CAN'T WAIT TO START.

BOUGHT:
1. Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole (The Arcana Chronicles #3)
2. Endless Knight by Kresley Cole (The Arcana Chronicles #2)

I read all the books that released in this series last September and I decided that it was time that I got my hands on these ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL PAPERBACKS. How FREAKING Gorgeous are they anyway?

An Ode To Geekdom // REVIEW: Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Title: Geekerella

Blurb Description: Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale.
Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom. Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.
Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. 
We’re all geeks here.”
Before I start, I should say that I’m a little wary going into fandom novels. I have this irrational fear that the protagonist is only a fangirl or a fanboy as a quirky side story and that it’s not at all given enough importance.

And yet, after about ten minutes of reading Geekerella, I knew I was didn't need to be wary of ANYTHING. 

Danielle – Elle – lives with her horrible stepmother (*ahem stepmonster*) and her two equally horrible stepsisters. Her mom died at a young age, and her father in an accident a while later. In a home that used to be hers and her father’s, she feel like an outsider. She’s made to do the chores and the cleaning and she also has a job – she’s a modern day Cinderella, only without a Prince Charming.

Until she gets a call from a strange number, for what used to be her dad’s number for the Convention he used to organise, and a conversation sparks with a boy she’s never met and knows nothing about. A boy she’s also spewing hate about on the Internet for his new role in her favourite show’s reboot.
And her geeky fairy tale is just about to begin.
“All me had was a moment. Just a moment in an impossible universe waltzing that beautiful, impossible waltz.”
I LOVED ALL THE GEEKY AND ADORABLE THINGS ABOUT THIS BOOK.

Told from the dual perspectives of Elle (Cinderella) and Darien (Prince Charming), Geekerella is EVERYTHING a fairy tale retelling with a fangirl twist should be.
Let me list it all out:

Image result for GEEKERELLA
1)      THERE ARE ALL THE FANDOM REFERENCES AND PUNS AND YOU WILL GET THEM AND IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’VE COME HOME

2)      Darien is Elle’s Fictional Crush in a reboot of her favourite TV Show, and he is SO perfect and insecure and I LOVE HIM ACK.

3)      DID I MENTION THAT DARIEN IS A FANBOY? He was a Prince Charming FANBOY. SAVE ME.

4)      Sage (Elle’s best friend/ co-worker) with her Green hair and attitude to match is AWESOME and you will fall in love. (Totally think she deserves her own book)

5)      It’s such a Cinderella retelling with the BEST KIND OF TWIST.

The only reason this isn’t a five star read for me is because in the end of the book, Elle and Darien were MAGICALLY IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER. I understand having feelings/ being deep on the crush end but I DIDN’T GET HOW THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER.

A hilarious, adorable tribute to fairy tales and fandoms that you NEED TO GET YOUR HANDS ON!
