What I’m currently reading?
I really thought I won’t like this book but so far I am enjoying it. But I heard that the second book is not that amazing as the first. I just hope I would enjoy it though.
In the Society, officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s hardly any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one…until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.
Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic.
I’ll be able to finish this soon, so maybe when this post is up, I have finished it already.
The case with this book is the fact that I kinda felt bored at the first few parts of the story, to be honest. But as I continue to read it, I was having a blast reading it. Naz is really an entertaining character, not because he is funny but because of how oblivious he is.
IA: Initiate is a supernatural thriller set in the mean streets of America. A seemingly random act of gang violence sends “Naz” Andersen on a quest to find answers surrounding his dead parents that lead to a series of discoveries about his supernatural abilities. Naz tries to stay out of the way at his foster parent’s home, but he walks in his sleep, and he is unable to keep the fact that he hears voices from his therapist. He attempts to go unnoticed at school and in the streets of the Exclave, but attracts the attention of friends and bullies alike, and his efforts to protect his little sister make him the target of malicious bullying by the notorious street gang, Incubus Apostles. Naz is an ordinary thirteen-year-old, or so he thinks. He harbors a secret that even he is oblivious to, and a series of ill-fated events reveal to him telekinetic and telepathic abilities. Now he must navigate newly found friendship and gang violence, and face the full force of the world around him. The only way he can survive is to discover the supernatural world within.
What I recently finished reading?
I really love this novella. It fills in the gaps of the first book in the series. Check out the review I wrote about this novella to learn more of my thoughts.
“The truth about our family would probably destroy my brother.
Chi is too naive, too gentle—far too weak to carry the weight of this reality.
Sometimes I hate him so much for it I can hardly breathe.
But I will make sure he never finds out what our parents truly are.
Monsters hiding in broad daylight.” – Stephen Richards
What I think I’ll read next?
I have seen the movie a lot of times already but I am still excited to read the book. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book. A lot had cried reading it, some didn’t, but I know I would love it nonetheless. If I love the movie, I would surely love the book more, because we all know the books are better than their movies.
Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.
Have you read those books mentioned? Dying to chat about it with someone? You can always talk to me about it. I would love to fangirl/boy with you.
So thank you and have a great day!
