The Rogue (Planets Shaken #1) by Lee W. Brainard | The Mishmash of events, people and ideas!

What would you do if you found out that an enormous comet was heading directly towards one of our neighbor-planets, which automatically puts in risk Earth and humankind?

What would you do if you knew that this is not some distant future and you only had a couple more years before the impact that could possibly change everything?  

Combining astronomy discoveries, scientific language and governmental conspiracy, «The Rogue» presents a dystopian world with backdrop of nowadays United States of America, where FBI and Homeland Security are portrayed more like men in black (and I am referring to their attire and not to the famous movie starring Will Smith), and remind a lot KGB in the Soviet Union.

Mimic (#2 The Prodigy Chronicles) by C.L. Denault | My Guilty pleasure dystopian with the most unlikable main character!

There is a pattern that starts repeating itself over and over – I fall in love with the first book in the series, find the concept so interesting, and then get highly disappointed by the second book. Maybe my reading tastes are slowly changing, or maybe they keep suffering from the “second book syndrome”. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I saw that happening with the 2nd book in the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson. Also the 2nd book in the Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and the 2nd book in the Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare.

10 Most Gorgeous Books I Own and Won’t Let Anyone Touch!

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is “Books I refuse to let anyone touch”, and this could be interpreted in different ways – “books so bad I refuse to let anyone read them”; “my favorites books I wouldn’t let to anyone” or, something I decided to talk about today – “the most gorgeous books I refuse to let anyone touch with their greasy fingers!

I don’t own that many beautiful hardcover books because (A) Paperbacks are way cheaper and (B) I don’t really care to collect all the hardcovers. I mostly pick up the books I’m really interested in over the pretty covers. But if I would have an unlimited budget for my book shopping sprees, I’d definitely get all those gorgeous hardcovers I always drool over at the book shops!

The Ultimate Game of Thrones Book Tag | Only one episode left!

I stumbled upon the Game of Thrones Book Tag first on The Awkward Book Blogger, and immediately saved that post to not forget and participate in this tag. Because (as you probably already know) I’m LOVING the final season of Game of Thrones. There is only one more episode to go which makes me very sad, but at the same time, I’m glad that this whole story has come to the end.

After looking through the questions, I realized that I didn’t have an answer to most of them! Which sucks when you are doing a tag and are supposed to answer the questions. 😀 So I went googling!

As a result, I found these two posts of the Ultimate Game of Thrones Book Tag, done by Annemieke and Drew. And that is the tag I’m doing today!

Extinction of all Children by L. J. Apps | A forgettable plot and cliché tropes!

«Divergent», «The Hunger Games», «The 5th Wave», «Maze Runner» there was this period of time when authors were coming up with surprising dystopian settings. I’m always on the lookout for more interesting books set in the dystopian world, be it current or futuristic.

I was immediately intrigued by the world without children. The world tyrannized by the president that took pregnant women and their new-born babies away. My questions were: What is the reason for such anger? Or is it protectiveness of some sort? What stands behind her reasoning?

Whisperer family were good friends with President Esther a long time ago. Before she became this radical president. And it so happened that Emma, their younger daughter, is the last child in Craigluy. Every baby born after her has been murdered. What makes her special?

Tinfoil Crowns by Erin Jones | The story of a YouTube Star, of betrayal and forgiveness

Considering the current rise of social media influence and YouTube channels, almost every single person in this world has some sort of social account. Many watch YouTube channels every day, and some have tried filming their own videos. It’s only natural that the authors would pick up on this trend and incorporate it in their stories. After all, when we read Contemporary, we want to see the world familiar to ours.

In my early teens, we dreamt about Hogwarts and magic schools. Nowadays, teenagers dream of being YouTube stars.

In «Tinfoil Crowns» we follow Jessica and her early rise of YouTube popularity. But there is so much more to this story than that. This is a story of loss, betrayal, forgiveness, and hope; and most importantly family relationships.
