Happy Easter everyone! I am not yet ready for Monday after my long weekend but back to reality.

I have been staying away from social media lately; blogging and Goodreads are my only exception. It is refreshing because I haven’t seen a lot of negative things lately. Plus I’ve been reading, though what I am reading is taking too much of my time but I am not complaining, I am having the best time ever.

I don’t think I read a lot this week but at least I am reading. So without further ado, let’s talk about books!

Destroy Me & Fracture Me Novella Review

 

Destroy Me tells the events between Shatter Me and Unravel Me from Warner’s point of view. Even though Juliette shot him in order to escape, Warner can’t stop thinking about her–and he’ll do anything to get her back. But when the Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment arrives, he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner cannot allow.

Fracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective and bridges the gap between Unravel Me and Ignite Me. As the Omega Point rebels prepare to fight the Sector 45 soldiers, Adam’s more focused on the safety of Juliette, Kenji, and his brother. The Reestablishment will do anything to crush the resistance… including killing everyone Adam cares about.

RATING: 🌕🌕🌗🌑🌑

Pages: 192

 

 


“There’s no freedom in comfort, therefore no authenticity. That only comes, when your imagined rules disappear.”

SYNOPSIS:

A young poet strangles two girls in the woods then takes his own life. A tragic, but all too familiar tale, at least according to the detectives’ official standpoint. The case gets much less familiar when other bodies show up with the dead poet’s DNA on them. Two detectives get after the phantom-like killer, but they are running out of time, as he strikes again and again, single-handedly turning the city upside down. 

17-year-old Aaron gets accepted to an elite and secret institution for gifted people, where he discovers that the school has much darker secrets and challenges in store for them than a few devilishly hard exams. For example, one of his new friends being the serial killer everyone is talking about.

March 2020 Wrap-Up

I think we could all agree that the month of March is probably the worst month of 2020 because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We just finished the first quarter of the year and yet a lot of things has happened; a widespread virus, lots of deaths, the lockdowns in different parts of the world. So thank you March for this one hell of a ride. Let’s just hope that April will be 10 times better.

So enough about my monologue. I am here to do my March Wrap-up. I did not think that I have read a lot this month but I was surprised that I finished a decent amount of books. I managed to finish 3 novellas and 6 whole books, all of which are more than 300 pages. So good job self.

tenor-1

Okay so without further ado, let’s dive into the books that I have read this month. I will be linking my full review of the books if I have any so please check it out!

“You’re going to go on to do incredible things… I’ve always known that. I think I just wanted to be a part of it.”

SYNOPSIS:

The thrilling second installment in New York Times bestselling author Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series.

It should have taken Juliette a single touch to kill Warner. But his mysterious immunity to her deadly power has left her shaken, wondering why her ultimate defense mechanism failed against the person she most needs protection from.

She and Adam were able to escape Warner’s clutches and join up with a group of rebels, many of whom have powers of their own. Juliette will finally be able to actively fight against The Reestablishment and try to fix her broken world. And perhaps these new allies can help her shed light on the secret behind Adam’s—and Warner’s—immunity to her killer skin.
