Book Review - Willow by VC Andrews | Blushing Geek

Book Review – Willow by VC Andrews

2 Comments

Just like the previous VC Andrews’ book that I’ve read, Willow had a difficult childhood. At such a young age, she was informed that she’s adopted eventhough at that time she didn’t really know what that word meant. At third grade she got to find out how they got her and how she came into this world in a really detailed manner. It was really messed up. Reading about how her adopted mother treated her makes me want to get inside the story and slap her. Her adopted father on the other hand is very nice to her.

Book Review – Web of Dreams by VC Andrews

What I always like about VC Andrew’s story is its simplicity. There were no super impressive words you’ll need to consult your dictionary with every single minute, which I guess is one of the reason why I enjoyed this story more. Ofcourse there were times where I like it when a book has some few very intelligent words in it, but sometimes I just want an easy casual read, and this is one of those times.

Book Review - Take Me Home for Christmas by Brenda Novak | Blushing Geek

Book Review – Take Me Home for Christmas by Brenda Novak

2 Comments

Take me home for Christmas started with Sophia, her daughter and all of the yacht’s crew frantically searching for her husband. I would be lying if I say that that opening didn’t give me an MHC story’s vibe hahaha. I’ve only read a mystery-suspense book from Brenda Novak so I really thought this is going to be a Christmas romance but with a touch of mystery. I don’t think I was disappointed when I realized that this story isn’t a mystery romance, because I was already busy feeling bad for Sophia and her daughter to dwell on those thoughts.

Hello fellow geeks. It’s time! I may not have been very productive in my anime watch last year, but I was able to overcome my reading challenge and read 111 books out of my 90 target. Yay!

I just can’t give this book a rating of 3 or less like I did on the previous books of this series. It was surprisingly good! My! This book certainly gave us a lot of things to talk about, but I’m still in awe that I don’t know if I can give a proper review lol, so please bear with me.

The Selection series always has amazing covers, and The Heir is no different. I wish I could say the same with the story though, but it was like The Elite all over again minus the love triangle (thank goodness!). Just like the latter, the main protagonist of this story is very hard to like.

Book Review – The One by Kiera Cass

This book didn’t let me put it down until I finished it unlike what I felt reading its previous book. I am really hopeful of this book after seeing its ratings on goodreads, and I am extremely happy that it’s finally good! The first few chapters are still a meh but the story becomes really interesting once it finally talks more about the rebels and what they are really fighting for.

I’m not sure where to start, hahaha. The Elite started so lovey-dovey I’m not even sure if I am reading the right book, lol. I’ve read the first book of this series 3 years ago, so I was ready to be confused even though I’ve just read its novella, The Queen (which isn’t related to this story directly), but I definitely wasn’t expecting that mushy start, hahaha.

Book Review – The Queen by Kiera Cass

The Queen is just a very short read but I genuinely enjoyed reading this one. It’s been years since I read The Selection which is the first book of this series, so I was a little confused while starting this story. I only got the hang of it when I found out that this is a story about Prince Maxon’s parents.

Book Review – War Storm by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen is one of the few YA Fantasy series that I truly enjoyed when I was just starting in this genre years ago. For that, regardless of what I felt for the last two books of this series, it will still have a place in my heart. War Storm is the longest book of this series, probably because it’s the last book, but thinking about how the previous book ended, I feel that it was necessary.
