Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott

Book Review!

Synopsis-

Stella Grant likes to be in control- even though her totally out-of-control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. What Stella needs to control most is her distance from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart.  No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of his hospital. In one week he’ll turn eighteen, and then he’ll be able to unplug himself from all these machines and actually go see the world.

Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. But now six feet apart doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment. What if they could steal back just a little space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

5*

Good Points –

This book was such a good read it had humour, heartache and love. The book provided two people who couldn’t touch one another and the relationship begins to grow making it harder not to touch. It makes you more aware of cystic fibrosis and what it is like for people to go through. It came across so well in the books. All the characters were so well placed and fitted into the story so well. I liked that each chapter was from different perspectives like one was Stella and then Will it was nice to see different views of the story from each of the characters. It made me want to cry (p.s- I am normally heartless ha-ha) so have your tissues at the ready.

Fav Quotes-

“It’s just life. It’ll be over before we know it.”

“I smile at him, and take just that one more stolen step, until we’re five feet apart.”

Bad Points-

I don’t have anything bad to say about this book as it took me on the journey of laughter, love and heartache. It was really a good book and nothing in my view was bad about it.

Overall-

This book is definitely worth a read and I look forward to watching the film adaptation to compare it to the book.

Thanks for Reading 🙂

ShadowLand by Alyson Noel

Hi new book review in the immortal series I am reading 🙂

Photo by luizclas on Pexels.com

3* Rating

Synopsis-

Ever and Damen have travelled through countless past lives in search of each other. But just when their destiny seems finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon them.  A single touch of their hands, a brush of their lips will mean death for Damen- cast into the darkness of the Shadowland. Then Ever meets Jude, a mysterious green-eyed golden surfer boy who understands magyck- and Ever- better than she does herself. She thought Damen was her destiny- but what if fate has other plans?

Good Points-

The new character of Jude sets new challenges for Ever and it tests her relationship with Damen. Roman still up to no good in his twisted games adding the excitement to the story.  The romance storyline through the books so far is well written into the storyline and gives the new excitement of challenges testing their love for one another.  I still love the sass of the twins in the book and looking forward to see where story goes in the next book.

Bad Points-

The book do only have a hint of fantasy such as the magic elements throughout and this is why I give it a lower rating of 3/5*. This is only my opinion as I do love more fantasy throughout the books I read. It still takes a while to get into the plot of the book as the second half is the best parts which I then have to push myself to read further on.

Overall-

This book was good in the new introducing of new characters and the new challenges for Ever and Damen relationship. However, it takes a while to get into the good parts of the book and there are limited fantasy elements in my opinion.

Thanks for Reading! 🙂

Slowly, it appears to the naked eye

Floating into the unknown place,

The key is to be gentle and kind.

As you never know what you might find.

….

POP, POP, POP,

The delicate life gone too quick.

Just one touch is enough,

For the pain to stop forever!

….

It is clear and hollow, plain to see,

All you must do is blow it out.

Watch it grow bigger and bigger,

Until it is gone forever.

Thanks for reading 🙂

Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Hi guys book review up if you want to check it out! 🙂

3*

Synopsis-

Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever’s powers are increasing, Damen’s begin to fade after he is stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.

Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, where she uncovers not only the secrets of Damen’s past – the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden – but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them – or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day….

My Views

This is the second book in the immortal’s series. I was excited to see where the plot went in the next book and how it would unfold. New characters were introduced which brought in new challenges for Ever to face and use of Summerland to answer her queries.

It took a while to get going in my opinion, I was pushing my way through to get to the excitement. When the story did reach the excitement, it was good to read, and I finished the book.

Good points!

The new characters of two twins (Romy and Rayne) which I loved because I am a twin myself ha-ha. They added new life to the story which made you want to know more about them and their roles. Also, Roman who Ever couldn’t figure him out until later in the book. He added new danger and excitement to the story.

The ending was good It placed twist in the story so far which left me wanting to continue onto the next book in the series.

Bad Points!

The beginning of the story took a while to get into, which made It hard to continue reading. Also, I was getting more romance vibes of the genre than the fantasy throughout the book. However, the plot does involve this throughout the books.

Overall

The 3* rating was mainly on the plot taking forever to get going and I felt a little disappointed with the story. However, the ending allowed me to want to carry on with Ever’s journey to see where and what happens next.

Thanks for reading 🙂

Book Review- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Mass

Photo by Dominika Gregušová on Pexels.com

Hi new book review for you to have a read if you are interested 🙂

5*

Synopsis –

 Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So, when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

My Views

This book had me hooked after the first few chapters! which is properly why only took me 3 days to read ha-ha.  Feyre is the main character to the story who is living in poverty and must hunt to provide for her family. Something happens that has her in trouble or, so she thought. Tamlin who takes her to his court as payment for her wrong. She then finds her self uncovering secrets of the fairies she didn’t know existed.

The book is fast pace and is fantasy genre with so many new creatures, magic and love in the book. As I am an ending fan of books, this didn’t disappoint me at all. It leaves you wanting to read the books to follow. I loved all the characters that was placed in the book, but Lucien is my favourite so far in the series. The story placed many twists in the plot I didn’t expect which I loved!

Fav Quotes-

“There once was a lady most beautiful

spirited, if a little unusual

Her friends were few

But how men did queue

But all gave a refusal”

“Thorny. Prickly. Sour. Contrary” I love both the quotes they set the tone of the book.

Good points

The book keeps a fast pace plot throughout the story. It displays characters that you grow to love and hate. Now I am Tamlin fan however, others have told me to prepare for the next books ha-ha. I love that there is a strong female character that does not depend on boys/men to hunt and provide for her family.

Another good point Is there were so many secrets and twists to the book it is hard not to put down! Lucien character I loved throughout he was the humour, laughter and loyal friend of the story. The story is so well written that you can literally picture every description and sentence. The romance was well thought out as you see the characters grow on one another.

Bad points

As was a 5* rating there wasn’t many bad points. However, the one thing I would say is this book is written for female readers in my opinion. This is only because as I read the book I couldn’t imagine a male reading it and enjoying it the same. This is just my view though!

Thanks for reading my review ! 🙂

Sand!

Hi to all my readers check out my new poem down below 🙂

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Sand slips through your hands so quickly,

The time it takes to drain will never be enough.

You sparkle so bright with every grain its tough,

to watch people, walk over you every day and night.

You cover such large areas, yet you still make it to me:

the feel of delicate, soft and wetness with your touch,

I wish for longer as I clutch to the memories.

The moment lasts forever for me but for you?

They are mine to keep and treasure:

“the best years of my life yet the cold is here”

And through each day I walk away knowing your clear,

 yet leaving me for another, so sad but true.

I awake each night and day hoping to see you shine:

A glisten of hope in my heart forever waiting.

When the day arrives, I grab my last grain,

wishing it to last forever but I truly lost you forever.

Thanks for reading 🙂
