A VERY FANGIRLY REVIEW OF ILLUMINAE AKA A SCI-FI MASTERPIECE // oh, the feels! attention: spoilers, caps lock and lots of crying ahead!

Guess who’s back from her hiatus!!!!! Not me.

No but seriously, I’m still on a semi-hiatus and I will only be posting sporadically in August!

[cries]: I FEEL LIKE I’M ABANDONING MY BLOG!

#heartbreak

Anyway, I will talk more about my blog/hiatus/life in my Wrap Up (umm, what Wrap Up, Jackie??? you still haven’t written it *laughs nervously*). So scratch that, I’ll have a hiatus update/info/announcement/status report sorta post going up on Monday so stay tuned for that!

I wrote this post like 2 weeks ago but forgot/didn’t have the time to post it so ignore me scratching out every other world hehe :’)

BUT THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT ME OR MY HIATUS SO I SHALL STOP TALKING ABOUT IT. IT’S ALL ABOUT FANGIRLING TODAY. Continue reading “A VERY FANGIRLY REVIEW OF ILLUMINAE AKA A SCI-FI MASTERPIECE // oh, the feels! attention: spoilers, caps lock and lots of crying ahead!”

Popular Series I’m Ashamed I Haven’t Read (Yet) – Pt. 2

Welcome to another round of SHAME where I talk to you about all the popular series I haven’t read (yet) and you get to throw sticks and stones (and whatever else you may find) at me!

I have already done a part 1 of this which you can find here! As you can see, I have read the ACOTAR series so at least I crossed one series off that list! Woo!

This time, I’ve decided to look at series that I actually own and see which ones I still need to read!

Let’s just get right into the series because this will be shameful enough *runs*

Illuminae Furthermore Seafarer's Kiss

  • Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: I bought both Illuminae and Gemina a long while ago but I just never get around to reading them! I don’t usually read many sci-fi books but the format of this one is DOPE!
  • Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi: Can you believe I don’t even OWN Furthermore??? Smh I’m such a FAKE Tahereh Mafi stan. Is she really my favourite author if I don’t even own all of her books? (Who am I kidding, YES SHE IS!) I keep waiting for a good deal on Amazon for the hardcover but it never comes. You know what, I should just buy this already! And gosh, the cover of this is just gorgeous isn’t it? 😍
  • The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember: This one comes out in May and I’m SOOO excited for it! It’s a Little Mermaid retelling and it has a f/f romance! I just know I’m going to love this one!

A Thousand Pieces Of You The Valiant

  • A Thousand Pieces Of You by Claudia Gray: When I read the first line of the synopsis “Cloud Atlas meets Orphan Black” I was SOLD! Orphan Black is such. a. fantastic. show! This book better be goooood!
  • The Valiant by Leslie Livingston: Female gladiators. FEMALE GLADIATORS. I don’t think I need to say much more.

Thanks for reading!
