The Blurb: A thrilling, futuristic sci-fi novel set in a unique and thought-provoking world, from author Shannon Duffy.

Desiree Six (because she was born on a Friday) believes in everything the Protectorate stands for. She likes the safety and security of having her entire life planned out—her career, her mate, even the date of her death. She doesn't even think to question when Darian, her childhood friend and neighbor, is convicted of murdering his parents. They had seemed like such a loving family. But if he was convicted, then he must have done it.


Then Darian shows up in her room late one night. He has escaped from the Terrorscape—a nightmare machine used to punish all Noncompliants—and needs Desiree's help. What he tells her rocks her world to its core and makes her doubt everything she's ever been told. With this new information, will Desiree and Darian be able to escape the Protectorate before it's too late
I was fortunate enough to be given a free copy by Entangled Teen and Ellie Mchanon, even though this has been published i couldn't wait to read it. From the first sentence i was hooked and couldn't put this book down, even though i hated when Desiree acted like a sheep beliving everything. I Enjoyed this whole world, makes you think about our government. It puts a whole new twist on controlling people, through dreams just take it to a whole new level.

The romance was cute but i wasn't flailing over it, i was more focused on the story and that's rare but i loved it. i felt like i was in the dreamscape along with them and i can't wait to go back.
This is a must read and i need everyone if they haven't to check it out after reading my review.

Review: P.S. I Like You

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay Contemporary makes me want to run away but there is a select few books i really liked and this one right here i think might be number one which is crazy okay.

I LOVE THIS BOOK AND THE CHARACTERS. I LOVE THE WHOLE CRAZY FAMILY

I FUCKING LOVE THE LYRICS AND LETTERS AND THE FUNNY BANTER.

I'm obsessed with writing poetry and songs and omg Kasie made Lily Abbot seem like a professional writer. The letter writing made me nostalgic for the old times.

I WANT TO SNUGGLE CADE NEXT TO MY HEART AND NEVER LET HIM GO.

I'M ATTRACTED TO HIM AND HIS WORDS AND VULNERABILITY.

You guys when it was that time in the story for them to do confessions and be cutesy, they damn delivered and i freaked out so hard at how fucking perfect and cute it was.

When Cade recited his letter to lily in the darkened classroom i couldn't handle myself, i was blushing and giggling and just a hot mess. when he said he knew it was her since thanksgiving i fell over…

In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s pas…

Review: A Crown of Wishes

A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

YOU BEAUTIFUL BOOK FULL OF MAGIC AND WONDER AND WORDS THAT MAKE YOU DANCE AND FEEL SO LIGHT AND HEAVY.

Disclaimer: Received a copy in exchange for honest opinion *and yeah because i adored the first book*

Words that feel skin deep and soul fulfilling, words that plucks tears from eyes and pull smiles from lips.

I felt so comfortable being pulled back into this world, the Night Bazaar and these characters. My favorite thing about this book was that we got to see Maya again.

Now i see what Maya saw in young Guari, who has grown and lived while dying and full of scars that paint a map of her story.

So THANK YOU to ST.Martins Press for allowing me to read early copy.
