September/ October Wrap Up

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

I am surprising even myself to say that I have kept up with my blogging schedule in these past few weeks. This exam period has been the absolute worst! I have had my ups and downs and with only one more exam to go, I am more stressed than ever especially because my last one if English Language. It is my most important exam and the one I am least prepared for, as I surprisingly hate English as a subject.

I have a lot of favourites in these past two months. I have accumulated some posts that I want to share with you all, books I enjoyed and books I bought, as well as a couple of announcements, one of which is Instagram related.

Goodreads Review

The only home Riga Garrison has ever known is the Tunnel, a subterranean research facility buried deep beneath Antarctica’s ice and snow.

Yet, while a safe haven for the last outpost of humanity governed by the Initiate, it is also home to a secret so dark that they will risk anything to protect it.

Surrounded by deceit and faced with exile to a frozen wasteland, Riga must defy not only the Initiate’s top biologists and loyalists but also her own mother, in an attempt to unearth the truth.

Goodreads Summary;

Can a beating heart bleed from the shattered pieces?

Her heart cracked when her best friend walked away; it completely shattered when she lost her family in a tragic accident.

Now orphaned at seventeen, Charlotte Peterson is forced to live with her former best friend, Jacob Parker. Charlie, a talented pianist, desperately wants their loving friendship back, but something is holding Jake back. The more she spirals into the darkness of depression, the more she needs him.

Jacob vowed to stay away from her—no matter how much he still loved her. Armed with secrets that would have destroyed both of their families, he chose to end their friendship and walk away, which nearly killed him. As he watches the girl he once knew begin to fade away, however, he realizes that their relationship is more important than the truth he’s hiding.

Now it’s up to Jacob to put the pieces of Charlie’s broken heart back together—even if it means revealing the secrets he so desperately wants to protect her from.
Will Jacob find a way to bring back the carefree, talented girl he once knew, or is it too late for both of them?

Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan | Review

Welcome Back Bookaholics!

Welcome back to another Book Review!!

Today I am going to discuss with you all what I thought of the first Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard novel, Magnus Chase and The Sword of summer by Rick Riordan. I did an anticipation post for this over a year ago which was titled; Why I can’t wait to read… – I know cool title right?

It has been a ridiculously long time since I have read Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan, the first book in the Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard series, but despite the time frame, I still remember how I felt reading this amazing book, due to its lasting impact it has had on me.

After becoming super obsessed with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially Thor and Loki – who are played by the fabulous Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston respectively –  I started researching Norse Mythology as we had touched on it briefly in school and I had read up on some myths and legends on Tumblr. As I became further invested into Norse Mythology and some other mythologies I turned to Rick Riordan – who’s books I shamefully have never read – and saw  that he was releasing a novel based on Norse Mythology called Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard, which I knew I just had to read.

Being the first ever Rick Riordan book I have ever read – sad? I know right – I had super high expectations, and trust me I was NOT disappointed!

 

About The Book:

25090719

Goodreads Synopsis:

Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he’s tracked down by an uncle he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.

The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .

Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer is the first book in another one of Rick Riordan’s epic series which does feature one character from his Percy Jackson and The Olympians series – although I am not going to mention who – I will say that this person is a relative of Magnus’s and you DO NOT need to have read any of Rick’s books prior to picking up this one. As I said previously, I haven’t and I still had an enjoyable reading experience.

I borrowed the Australian paperback edition from  a friend of mine – and a mad Percy Jackson fan. I treated this book like it was gold. And it certainly looked like it…

The Epidemic by Suzanne Young | Review | *spoiler free*

WHAT DID I JUST READ?!

Ever since I finished reading The Remedy – the third installment in The Program series – almost five months ago, I have been asking and quite literally begging (and bugging) the librarians at my school library to buy Suzanne Young’s newest release, and latest installment in The Program series; The Epidemic. 
The Epidemic is the fifth installment in The Program series. So far, this series consists of four books and one ebook (which I read quite recently).
