SUMMARY:

In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who’s only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.


I love this series, it gets better and better with every book and I’m so excited for Winter to see how it all ends. The reason I loved this book so much is because they were all finally reunited, and Cress was going to join the crew as well. When we’re first formally introduced to Cress, and I realized who she was, that was such a nice thing to include. It shows that she’d planned all her characters before writing book 1. Then, we also get to know that besides the fact that we’ve seen her before, she has a closer connection to an already known character. I figured out the connection really early on in the book before it was revealed to us. There were a lot of hints.

Anyways, this one didn’t take Scarlet’s spot as my favorite of the three books. As for characters, we’re introduced to Winter and Jacin, who are both going to be main parts of the final book Winter. Cress was my least favorite out of the three girls, I found her to be quite a bit annoying in her actions at time, which I mean she’s young, but still, I feel like she was just whiny and impulsive, and that got her into trouble way to many times. I hope she grows into a more and better developed character by the end of the next book.

The ending of the book, though, it makes you want to next one ASAP! I can’t believe we now have to wait until December, true we have Fairest, but it’s not the same.

It’s definitely one of my favorite series, and she’s definitely one of my favorite authors. Her writing style is perfect. It all flows perfectly, and the story is just beautifully planned out. Bottom line, I loved it.

Spoilers

Anyone else shocked when it was revealed that Cress was the same exact girl who told Cinder about Levana’s plan in Cinder? I certainly was.

So when Wolf said he loved Scarlet…. that was the cutest thing, and the way they both reacted, it was super sweet, and adorable. Even though Kai and Cinder are my favorite relationship in the series, I love them all, even Cress and Thorne.

I figured out Cress was Dr. Erland’s daughter pretty early on because of his references to his Crescent Moon, and I knew they were connected.

Cinder really got on my nerves a couple of times, especially when she opened that podship. It’s her fault Scarlet is gone. While we’re speaking of Scarlet, did she chop off her finger, because that’s a little messed up. I hope she didn’t, but by the looks of it, she did.

I love that we got Iko’s point of view! I feel like she might be killed in the last book though, I don’t want her to be, but she might.

I was so happy when Mira died, it was about time, I hated her, I think we all did.

Then when Jacin realized that Cinder was Princess Selene, and he smiled, that was funny because he and Cinder had had that whole Princess conversation when she thought he was talking about her, but truly he was speaking of Winter.

Then when Cinder FINALLY told Kai who she was. I’d been waiting for that moment for so long, and it was perfect. Then they kissed, my otp was back ♥

I’m so excited for Winter, the war has begun and it’s going to be so great. I’m scared to see who she sacrifices. She released that she killed someone who she wasn’t planning on killing at first, and I don’t know who that it. I just hope it’s not one of the boys, and I know Cinder is going to survive, I doubt she’d kill Scarlet and as for Cress, since she killed Dr. Erland (which I also saw coming) I doubt she’ll kill his only descendant too.

Let me know your thoughts

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Review

 Title: Scarlet

 Author: Marissa Meyer

 Series: The Lunar Chronicles #2

 Genre: YA, Sci-Fi

 Page Count:452

 Publication: February 5th, 2013

 Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

 Format: First, American Hardcover

 Source: Owned 

Summary: 

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison–even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive. Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.


I enjoyed this book just as much, if not more than it’s prequel. I have now read all three books published in this series and I think this one might be my favorite of them all. Scarlet isn’t my favorite out of the three main characters, I think I like Cinder a little more, but she’s in second place.

Scarlet is a re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood. She had red hair, wears a red hoodie, lives in a farm with her grandmother who’s gone missing. Very early on in the book we meet Wolf, and I loved him instantly, he’s adorable.

We also meet Captain Thorne and isn’t he a charmer. His and Cinder’s relationship was so cute. I loved seen both from Cinder’s perspective and Scarlet’s perspective, and I loved it even more when their paths crossed.

Since this is a sequel, I can’t talk much about it without spoiling it’s prequel. If you’ve read Cinder then there’s no reason why you wouldn’t want to continue on with the series, and if you haven’t yet, then I highly suggest that you do.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer | Review

 Title: Cinder

 Author: Marissa Meyer

 Series: Lunar Chronicles #!

 Genre: YA, Sci-Fi

 Page Count: 390

 Publication: January 3rd, 2012

 Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

 Format: Paperback 

 Source: Owned 

Summary: 

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.


I loved this book. It’s been on my tbr for awhile and now that I finally had them all I read them. Cinder follows a girl named Cinder, she’s a cyborg.  She’s a mechanic, a very good one. The book is set in the future, there’s been 5 world wars, the planet formed an Earthen Alliance because of the Lunar threat.  She has two step sisters, and the step-mother. One of her step-sisters Peony is really nice to her. She reminded me of Anastasia because Anastasia was the nicest of the two. In case you didn’t know she ended up getting her own spin-off movie(s). Then we have Pearl who was the evil one. Cinder isn’t accepted because she’s a cyborg. She does have her android, Iko to keep her company though. One day while she’s at the market, the prince shows up and asks her to fix his droid. Prince Kai is so sweet. I know how his name is pronounced but I kept reading it as (kay) in my head for some reason. He’s amazing, honestly, you’ll love him. Then we have Levana, Lunar Queen. Basically, the moon is considered a planet, called Luna (which is the latin word for it) and it houses people called Lunars. They have the power to control others, it’s not magic, it’s science but that’s what they can do. Levana is, well evil, and she threatens the earth. She wants a marriage alliance with the CommonWealth, which is Kai’s country. He obviously doesn’t want to marry her, just like his father didn’t. There’s also this disease going around, Letumosis, and it’s killing the population.

I don’t know  what else I can say without spoiling, just that the book is fantastic. Even if you don’t like sci-fi, give it a chance, you’ll might be surprise to find out just how much you’ll like it.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer | Series Review

TheLunarChronicles.jpg

I’ve read the first three books in the series, and I’m going to write an independent review for each book, but I wanted to just write an overall series review (without spoilers) for those of you wondering whether or not you should read it.

In Cinder, the first book we follow Cinder, a cyborg. The whole series is a bunch of fairy tale retellings, in each book we follow a new main character, but it’s continuous so you do have to read them in order. For example, in Scarlet we follow Scarlet, a new character, but we do get point of views from Cinder and old characters from the first book, picking up where they left off.

Cinder is a retelling of Cinderella. She’s a cyborg, which in case you didn’t know means she’s part machine. It’s set in New Beijing, which is a new version of the Beijing we know today. There’s a prince, obviously, his name’s Prince Kai and he’s amazing. Cinder has 2 step sisters and a stepmother. It’s basic Cinderella, but a lot cooler.

Scarlet is a retelling of Red Riding Hood. We follow Scarlet, and she’s fully human. She works on a farm with her grandmother who has gone missing. We also meet Wolf, who’s amazing as well. The story follows her journey to find her grandmother with new and old friends. The story of Cinder overlaps with hers.

Cress is a retelling of Rapunzel. We actually meet her in a previous book, so keep your eye out for that. She’s Lunar, and she’s been living in a satellite most of her life. I won’t say much else.                        There’s also Captain Thorne whom we meet in Scarlet, he’s phenomenal. All her male leads are amazing. I think Kai is my favorite, but it’s hard to choose.

The last book is titled Winter and it’ll follow Princess Winter, whom we meet in Cress. As you probably tell, she’s a retelling of Snow White, and she’s also Lunar.

I love this series so much, it’s sci-fi but it’s so entertaining. I totally recommend all of you to read it. Individual reviews for each book will be posted, but I hope this helped you decide whether or not you want to read it.

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey | Review

 Title: The Infinite Sea

 Author: Rick Yancey

 Series: The 5th Wave #2 

 Genre: YA, Sci-Fi 

 Page Count: 300

 Publication: September 16th, 2014

 Publisher: Putnam

 Format: First, American Hardcover

 Source: Purchased

Summary: 

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.


As you probably know The 5th Wave is my favorite book of the year ( along with Eleanor & Park) , so I had extremely high expectations for this book, and not only did it meet them, it blew past them. It  was such a strong sequel to an already amazing book. The 5th Wave left us with a very  big, and important question, so rest assured, it is answered in this book.We get to read from Ringer’s POV in this book, which was amazing. We learn about her background and her life. We also get a bit more information on Poundcake. It was really nice to see  how Rick made all his characters relevant in the book.                    The whole book, even The 5th Wave, it really makes you second guess a lot of things, what it truly means to be human; I love the way he writes his books and characters so deeply. The way the book ended, just wow, like there’s a twist that I don’t fully comprehend yet, I’m really looking forward to the last book next year. If this is going the way it seems like it is, then just wow. He really knows how to write a book. Like I said in my review for it’s prequel, with this book you never truly knew what was going on, or what would happen; you’d make an assumption and just get the rug pulled from under you. I have to say Cassie is amazing, love that girl. She’s definitely up there with Katniss as best heroine. I don’t know how she does it, I don’t think i’d survive a day in The 5th Wave. We also find out more about the Silencers, and what they truly are, and trust me, it’s good, it’s really good; shocking and unexpected, but good. Also, love played a pretty big role, it felt like everyone was kissing someone at some point lol. When The 5th Wave ended, we thought love triangle? Now it’s more like love pentagon, and the thing is, I ship them all, that’s how good. But it’s not like cheesy love, romance whatever, it’s just love is one of those things that makes us human, so it’s deemed dangerous. The way it ended, I feel like it’ll play an important role in the last book. We’ve already seen what love could do ( yes I’m referring to a very specific character that we all know and love, but I won’t mention the name because alas spoilers! But if you’ve read The 5th Wave then you know who 😀 ) .

.Anyways, I think that’s all I can say without spoilers, but I think I did pretty good as this is a sequel. Honestly, guys if you haven’t read The 5th Wave yet, you really should.

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout | Review

 Genre: YA, Sci-fi. Paranormal Romance

 Page Count: 269

 Publication: May 8th, 2012

 Publisher: Entangled Teen

 Format: E-book (Kindle)

Summary: 

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Well this book was just fantastic, the amount of fantastic you think it is right now, multiply it by 10, that’s how awesome this was. It’s definitely working to become a favorite of mine, and I’ve only read the first book. I love Sci-Fi, it’s one of my favorite genres, so I’m assured to love about everything with Aliens in it. This did not disappoint, not even close. When I say this book was fantastic, I genuinely mean, this book was fantastic. I read it in one sitting, finishing it at 2 am this morning (it’ll be days ago when you’re reading this), and I didn’t even realize it until right before I finished it. It was just so captivating, and fantastic (I should stop using that word lol, but it really was). The story follows Katy, it’s told in her POV in First Person. She’s an incoming senior and the story starts off in July. She’s just moved from Florida to a small town in West Virginia, and she doesn’t know anyone. Katy is a book blogger (like us) she has a book blog, does book reviews, and memes like Waiting on Wednesday, ect..Katy must be the most relatable character I’ve ever read. She loves to read a lot of paranormal which I think really helped her accept the aliens, I know it would help me. I’ve read and seen so many sci-fi already that if friendly aliens were to come here, I wouldn’t freak out. If Aelyx (Alienated) or Daemon showed up next door, that would be heaven ♥ 

Daemon Black, wow, just Daemon Black. He’s perfect. He’s arrogant, rude, beautiful, gorgeous and a lot of things lol. He was a very fun character to read about, it would’ve been nice to read from his point of view. Apparently, there’s a novella set before Obsidian called Shadows, I don’t know if it’s in his pov, but I’ll read it anyways. 

Then there’s Dee, and she’s a sweetheart. I loved her and Katy’s friendship, she was just such a great character. 

The book was filled with action, and romance, and amazing-ness! If you guys love sci-fi, even if you don’t, read the book. Just read it. I loved it so much (:

Spoilers ⇓

Have I mentioned how fantastic this book was? lol 

Just starting off the book we’re introduced to Katy and she’s awesome. Her blog is called “Katy’s Krazy Obsessions” which is so cute. Then she goes next door and meets Daemon, who is totally rude, but we love him. Then she meets Dee who like I said is a sweetheart. We all already knew they were aliens, it says it right in the synopsis. Their powers are pretty cool though, I gotta admit. 

Then Katy got attacked which I have to agree with Daemon, who would help that guy, I mean he was creepy with a capital C. Humans really are gullible, the aliens are correct on that one, along with the fact that if aliens came, they’d freak out. 

Then there was Ash. Total B, if you ask me. Sucks because she sort of has my name. I wish I had a name that cute nicknames could be made out of, like with Katy,she has : Kat, Kitten, KatyCat, KittyCat… while my most common nickname is Ash, which I don’t mind, I do like it actually. Anyways, it was pretty obvious how unlikeable Ash was. I mean, I understand her overprotective ways, she’s like Daemon on that one, but while Daemon was charmingly rude, she was just rude. I loved when Katy dumped the spaghetti on her, that was awesome. Also Lesa, and Carisa, I like them. 

I loved the action in the book, after she found out what they were, and that she had a  trace on her. I loved the humor in the book too. 

I think it’s pretty obvious Daemon cares about her, when he rescued her at that party from Simon, and after that, they ran into the Arum, and Katy was pretty badass in that scene. Then again when Katy decided to make the Arum chase her to save Dee, which wasn’t the most thought out plan, but I understand why she did it, again it showed how much Daemon does care. 

For a second, I thought Dee was gonna die there, and that would’ve been so messed up, I was so scared, but she made it which was great. 

But that whole scene, the way Katy killed the Arum, I don’t really understand, and how Daemon healed her… now they’re like in sync or something and I’m still not fully understanding it, so I hope that’s solved out later on. 

The book was great, I loved it! Have you read it? What’d you think ? (: 

Wasn’t it fantastic 😀  xx

The 5th Wave | Movie Casting News

Fans of The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (myself included) will be pleased that we now have our Cassie(who was announced a couple months ago), Evan and Ben.
I read the book recently and I reviewed it here , but bottom line I absolutely loved it.
Here are the actors:

Cassie:

Ben:

And last but not least
Evan:

I’m personally very pleased with Ben, and Cassie but a little on the fence with Evan. He doesn’t look like the Evan I pictured, but I’m not gonna judge; his acting could be phenomenal.

Chloe who plays Cassie is a great actress.
She played in Kick-Ass and Carrie to state a few.
Chloe’s IMDB Profile

Nick who plays Ben has played in the Disney movie Frenemies, which I’ve seen and he was good, he’s also played in this other movie I haven’t seen, it came out last year.
Nick’s IMDB Profile

Alex who plays Evan I’ve never heard of but apparently he’s British (ooohh ♡) lol.
He’s played in a couple of movies I haven’t seen yet over the years.
Alex’s IMDB Profile

Here it is! That’s our cast so far!
What do you guys think about it and the movie?
I’m very excited for this movie (: xx

I loved this book. Finished it Sunday night. It was a pretty long book; but I really loved it. I took a lot of notes; I have so many posts its sticking out of it rn.
Just so you get an idea 🙂

image

I’ll be going through each and talk about them.
Okay?
Okay.
Non-Spoilers Section:
Soo I loved the whole concept of this alien  invasion with the waves; it was pretty cool because whenever we think of an alien invasion we think of a bunch of space ships and weird creatures descending upon us like in Falling Skies; I love that show it’s very good – but with this book he creates a whole new ridiculously brilliant way for them to invade us. The first 100 pages is in Cassie’s POV and it’s basically her telling us about Arrival Day and the first 3 waves; and also what the aliens actually want. At first I hated the switching POVs, it could get confusing especially since he doesn’t tell you who’s POV you’re reading from at first; you have to figure that out on your own, but after finishing this book I understand the importance of the switching PoVs. The story was very consistent throughout and kept you second guessing yourself, you would make up your mind on something then he would throw something in there to make you question your choice so you never knew the real answer until he actually told you; and I thought that was fantastic. So Yea I really really loved the book.I recommend everyone to read this; doesn’t matter whether you like aliens and sci-fi or not. This book is great ;it also has some great romance but that doesn’t take main focus in the book at all; it’s there in a satisfactory amount but doesn’t take away from the main plot of the book. Read it then come back and discuss!

SPOILERS!!!

Umm.. so the aliens want the earth. You know with all these aliens stuff I don’t understand why they always have to come and pick on us; I mean there’s millions of other galaxies; are you telling me that you couldn’t find another vacant resourceful  planet to go live on? I mean this is our home, you can’t just come in here with your superior tech and decide to wipe us off because your own sucky planet couldn’t sustain your sorry life any longer; like that’s very rude.
Let’s talk about Cassie, dear God I love her. She is badass and kickass and 👌. I also love her name Cassie for Cassiopeia I wish I were called that. I might name my daughter that; it’s a beautiful name.
When she was describing her life after Arrival Day and during the first couple of waves, wow. Her dad’s death, that was purely heartbreaking. You never knew who to trust in that book. I was honestly just as conflicted as Cassie during this book.

image

This was one of my favorite lines in the whole Book; it sounded like the Book was ending but it was just the first part but still I was like you go girl 👏
Okay so after that we switch POVs, we go onto Ben; and at first I was so confused, like how did Cassie get here? Is This a flashback? Why would someone compare her to his little brother? But then I got that we had switched POVs and I was certain at first that it was Evan because I had been waiting for him to make an appearance but he still hadn’t; but turned out it was just Ben, who actually  turned out to be a more important character then I would’ve thought; I believed he was dead, I didn’t even pay any attention to his character before; he was just this guy she crushed on. I loved how in the end they both had a connection with Sammy and they both kept their promises. I was worried for a second there that one might shoot the other when Ben saw him with Cassie and thought she was a soldier, but it all worked out.

Evan! Oh man I love him. I know In the end it was hinted at that there might be a love triangle brewing but it there is, I’m team Evan all the way. He’s so sweet and he’s funny and when he left the Hershey Kiss for her after she had smelled chocolate on him awe ❤. I started thinking he might be the silencer after he returned from “Lauren’s Grave ” and Cassie started to have her speculations , but again Yancey kept me on the fence about it until Evan mentioned the whole thing with her and Bear in the woods and I knew that it was him. But it in no way lessened my affection for him (ha TFiOS reference again :)) I have to admit though, the whole relationship with them came out of nowhere Lol he just suddenly randomly kissed her and it went from there and I did not see it coming. The way he kept saying you saved me and the whole ” you’re the mayfly ”
And

image

*Tears 😭💝*
Okay and then the whole them being “The 5th Wave” that was so incredibly smart and messed up at the same time. Those aliens they may be evil but they’re geniuses. The way they tricked them into killing off the rest of their race without even knowing they were doing it, incredible. I love how smart Ringer is though, she figured it all out. I’m still very interested about learning more about her character and her past, she closes up every time it comes up and I want to know the story behind not smiling because I think there’s one; and I’m sure Ben will make her smile; sooner or later. I ship those two together, not Ben and Cassie; she’s for Evan.
When Evan finally told Cassie the truth which in turn let us know what these aliens are and how they’re here and there’s others like him who didn’t want to wipe off humankind that was nice; and the prologue finally made sense.
I can’t believe they’ve been watching us for 6000 years…. that’s so creepy like…. how why what.
I loved the whole ending. The scene when Evan came to the rescue and he knocked once (their little inside joke) it was so cute and really showed his humorous side even in serious times like this and I like that, I really do. He better NOT be dead! I don’t think he is  anyways, I mean there needs to be 3 people in order for there to be a love triangle right? Yup thought so too.
He’s not dead, I’m positive of that for other reasons too.
Anyways I adored This book.
Rate: 5/5 🌟👏
Again like I said above In the Non-Spoilers I recommend this Book to everyone (:
If you have read This Book then definitely share your thoughts, I would love to know. XX

Synopsis:
Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.

I finished this book a few days ago and wow was it amazing. I loved it from “cover to cover” (I put it in quotes because I read it as an ebook so I didn’t really have covers) but anyways the point is I loved it. I loved the writing style,I loved the characters, I loved the world, it was great. I recommend this to everyone. If you like sci-fi and contemporary, then this is the perfect mix.

Spoilers Ahead

Again I will be looking over the notes I took and whatever I had highlighted to discuss here (:

Then I don’t see the problem,” he told Eric. “The fact that you purchased an inferior gift hardly seems like any failing on my part. It’s common knowledge that shiny rocks are preferred among human females.”

I loved Aelyx from the start but from this part I really knew that I loved him; work that sass 🙂
I also found it really cool how he paid with credits; kind of like in a movie or show I once saw, but I still found it pretty cool.

Aelyx shrugged. “To be honest, I don’t know what qualities you ever saw in him. I can tell why he chose you, but—”
“Oh, yeah?” Cara’s spirits lifted as she sensed a compliment coming on. “Why do you think he chose me?”
“It’s obvious.” He swept a hand to indicate her loose curls. “Your long, shiny hair, healthy skin, and bright eyes show that you’re well-nourished.”

That was very funny (:

Let’s not talk about me anymore,” she said, resolving to lay off the carbs, starting tomorrow. Wait, tomorrow was pasta night. She’d lay off the carbs Wednesday.
To hell with cutting carbs. Life was too short for that nonsense.

Amen Girl! Amen! Lol 👏

@Humanist: Post that under your real name, coño. So I can come put my foot up your ass.

Tori Okay I was really pissed at her at first; like how could you do that to her? All that time you’ve hated Eric wtf that’s messed up. But I forgave her at the end.

Okay the whole Aelyx learning English in one week that was a total hyperbole lol I mean I learned English pretty fast too but not in one week! But he’s awesome.
When Cara kept trying to cook for him so that the food would taste like the food he’s used to from L’heir! That was the cutesse thing 💝

So…. Brandi, I really thought she was writing a love letter to Aelyx; I didn’t suspect her to be writing the threats after the whole debacle in the hallway with Cara. That was nice from Melissa.

Then we have the whole scene were they show each other how they each show intimacy to decide which was best; and I gotta say even though the L’heir way is pretty cool and sweet , the human way is much better lol; and I think Aelyx can agree💝
I really like her brother Troy too (:
Going into this I thought the whole Alien -Human relationship thingy was going to be a bigger issue; he’s planning on making her his l’ihan or something like that; whatever it’s called I don’t remember, but that’s basically equivalent to making her his wife in human terms. That whole thing was cute. Im so excited for Invaded .which comes out next year (:.I want to know how Aelyx fixes the issues on Earth and how Cara’s life is going on L’heir and what new issues have come about. The book was just so good!
I rate it a: 5/5 🌟 👍
