24909346Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Release Date: 18th of October
Genre: YA,Sci-Fi
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Pages: 608 Hardcover

Goodreads synopsis:
Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.
The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.
Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.
When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.
But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.
Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.

9781408845653Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated edition

Release Date: 4th of October
Genre: Middle Grade,Fantasy
Publisher:
Pages: 

Goodreads Synopsis:
All Harry Potter wants is to get away from the Dursleys and go back to Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby – who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone–or something–starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects… Harry Potter himself.

 

The first one was so gorgeous I need all the others !!!! ❤ ❤

Hiatus**

Hey everyone, I’m sorry for the lack of post but I’m going to have too go on a small hiatus. I started school last week and I was in the Personal Support Worker course and today I was informed that I could transfer to the Practical Nurse program !!!! I’ve been on the waiting list since March and I gave up hope that I would get in this year.

I know it’s only been a week, but these classes move fast so I’m all ready going to be behind. I’m really excited to have gotten in the program. So now instead of being in school for 8 month I will be there for 2 years.

I’m currently reading Empire of Storms (slowly cuz I have no time). Just wanted to let you all know that I have some scheduled post but I’m not sure when I’ll get any reviews up for the next week week’s.

Unpopular book opinions tag!

Unpopular book opinions tag!

I haven’t done a tag in a while and with school started I won’t have as much time to read, so less reviews. But Tag’s are fun and fast to do so expect a few coming up 🙂

1.A Popular Book or series that you didn’t like.
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld,I didn’t feel an attachment to any of the characters and I felt like they were really one-dimensional. I found the story line to be really predictable and it didn’t grip me whatsoever unfortunately.

2.A Popular Book or series that every one else seems to hate but you love.
Twilight,and I read all the books and watched all the movies.

3.A Love Triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with (warn people for spoilers) OR an OTP that you don’t like.
I’m not gonna say who they are but I really just don’t agree with the endgame in the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, which makes me really really sad. I totally ship her with someone else.
Two: The Throne of Glass series, it’s not finished yet but Dorian is such an obvious good choice for her that it blows my mind that people see her with anyone else.

4.A popular book Genre that you hardly reach for.
Sci-Fi. Or Ya contemporary. I prefer fantasy and magic.

5.A popular or beloved character that you do not like.
Four,Why do people even like this guy? Please enlighten me.

6.A popular author that you can’t seem to get into.
David Levithan. I just don’t get him.

7.A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing. (examples “lost princess”, corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.)
Insta-love– Sometimes I don’t mind it, depending on the intensity of it. Other times, it’s a little ridiculous.

8.A popular series that you have no interest in reading.
I would have said Red Queen but I caved and I loved it

9.The saying goes “The book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or T.V. show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?
The television series for The Vampire Diaries,far superior than the books. Yes, I liked the books and enjoyed reading them, but they have nowhere near the depth or complexity of the television series.
