This is the cover for the first book. There are 3 in all, hence trilogy.

 

This series in one out of 5 favorites; The Clique, Artemis Fowl, Twilight, and of course, Harry Potter.

Brief Overview: It talks about a girl named Gemma Doyle with a one of a kind power that can lead her to another world filled with beauty and wonder. However, the creatures of that world want her power, and there are 2 enemy groups that are trying to lure her into giving it to them. Furthermore, there is a terrible witch who has been hunting her down for years to obtain her power. Through her journey of discovery, she neets a boy who she falls secretly in love with. However, he is in the enemy group. she also makes 3 friends, who are both good and evil in their own ways, and want to achieve their life’s dreams with her magic.

rating: 4.5/5

I didn’t give it a full5 because i expected more romance, but what I got were a few measely scenes. Although they don’t have that many romantic scenes,are pretty explicit when they do.

I’m highly recommend it. I cried at the end. Such a Romeo&Juliet ending.  :’)

Breaking Dawn;No Spoilers Involved :]

2 Sep

 

A review for the day, but before we start, i have a confession.[haha!] I’m a bookwormmmmm. I love to read. I’m probably the only person that isn’t an author,english teacher,etc. to willingly read Shakespeare, :] but that’s what makes me unique? Haha, i seek out those old novels that have been treasured througout the ages; Catcher In The Rye, Romeo & Juliet, Etc. But anyways, back to the point.

 

This book was AMAZING, except for one tiny  HUGE thing. A few days before i had bought the book, i was chatting with my friend and exclained “BREAKING DAWN!”. In reply, she said,” Yea, i know! Bella gets ********!!!!!”

     Most depressing thing to happen in my life so far………..I can’t even describe how i felt…… I wanted to smack her silly, yet at the same time, i wanted to just fall down and cry! So as i read the book, there was that one FACT that kept on popping up in my mind &  basically COMPLETELY ruined the book for me. MELANCHOLY! But if i overlook that fact, the whole entire book was amazing. The saga also. This was the last book in this saga by the way, and i love how the author didn’t put that much supsense and whatnot into the book, so suprisingly, i wan’t that sad when i had finished reading the book. On the downside, not that much romance in this book, but that’s alright, there was plenty enough for me. :] I was actually happy at the results, not like with the Harry Potter series, i had actually CRIED when the realization hit and Harry was no more.

 

until next time! :]
