CHRISTMAS MESSAGE :)🎄

Dear Readers,

Thank you for the past nine months (or so). It’s been a crazy journey!!! This year we had many pleasant and unpleasant surprises such as the American Election, Book releases and many movie adaptations! This Christmas we would like to give a particular shoutout to our friends, Izzy and Karenza, or you may know them as Karabelle for their fan fiction. They are amazing writers and I believe they are even starting their own blog, so more on that in the new year. But once again, thank you to everyone for your support, your time and your loyalty to the blog (not to mention your dedication to ignoring all the typos… :). Thank you, thank you, thank you and we hope to see you all again in the New Year for more fun and book stuff!!!🎄✨🎉🎄

Love Your Fellow Book Nerds,

Ally, Melia and Laurena.

One last word.

This isn’t a review,tag or recommendation. The words below are my own and I take full responsibility for them.

One.Last.Word. I often wonder what I will say on my death bed. Maybe a joke like:

‘I hid a million dollars in the-‘ or perhaps even a heroic saying: ‘I welcome death with open arms.’

I wonder what the victims of the attack on Bastille Day thought or said. What were their last words? Was it a proposal under the carousel? Was it a whisper of love from a parent to their child? Or maybe it was a hurried word. One. Last.Word. One last word to change the fate of that person’s life. Becuase, maybe, just maybe, the word was ‘run’. 

Such is a mystery due to one man. One truck. One chance. And a pile of the dead. Parents, children, grandparents. All stolen from their blissful lives by one man with one last word.

This is not a guilt trip or a snatch at dramatics. This is a call to action. To achieve greater things in life. Don’t waste your tears, waste your talent. Waste your talents on building a better world where this kind of thing doesn’t happen. We can’t do it alone. Nations need to stand together and acknowledge that a wrong doing was done on Nice in France. In Turkey. In Brussels. In Pakistan. In Istanbul. In Israel. In every country where precious life is wasted, whether it’s due to an act of terrorism or rape.

May god help the people of Earth once find the light again and may the victims of slaughter rest in peace.

Please don’t like this- out of respect to the victims of these attacks.

Thankyou,

-Ally.

These to books have similar events and plots but completely different writing styles.

Here are the Goodreads plot summaries for each of the books above.

Red Queen

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart

Shadow and Bone

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.
