In this continuation of «School for Psychics»series, Teddy, Dora, Janine and Pyro go back to Whitfield Institute for their 2nd year. This time, their return is shadowed by the suspicious disappearance of their friend, and betrayal of someone they trusted.
The second year also requires more from Whitfield students. Soon, they will need to be sorted to various military forces or secret agencies, and it’s up to them to perform to their highest standards.
Concerned about her friend, her parents, and suspicious activity of Whitfield superiors, Teddy and her crew end up in the middle of the mysterious events that might solve their problem, or make an even bigger mess!
Oh, this is going to be fun! This week, I’m actually doing the TTT (Top Ten Tuesday) theme without any twists. I thought it would be difficult to come up with unpopular opinion, but I had way more than 10 that I had to choose from to not make this post pages and pages long.
Being a huge fan of MMO RPGs and a World of Warcraft addict for over 6 years, Mark Lawrence’s new YA Sci-fi book hit all the right buttons!
Filled to the brim with mysterious events, science, and Friday nights D&D sessions, «One Word Kill» is a perfect mix of Stranger Things, Dark Matter and The Fault in Our Stars, with a very unique presentation of time traveling.
Neal Shusterman created a world where technological advances brought humanity to the point of immortality. There are no illnesses, no disease or viruses. The human system is equipped with smart nanites that can battle every natural cause of death. They provide the painkillers when necessary, they repair organs in case of damage. And if you happen to be “deadish”, the Thunderhead (the Artificial Intellect) employees will revive you in 3 to 4 days, without any consequences, and even offer the best ice cream you’ve ever had.
In this utopian world, where people can live for thousands of years, marry multiple times, have many children, the population growth has to be controlled. And that’s why the Sythedom was created. Separate from the Thunderhead, Scythedom is responsible for “gleaning” people.
This week on Top Ten Tuesday we are supposed to talk about Favorite Books From Our Favorite Genre. However, since I already talked a lot about my favorite books and didn’t read that many fantastic books this year, I’ve decided to bring you the list of 10 books from my favorite genres that I’m not interested in.
Take a look at my thought process for this week’s TTT topic:
May was good! And when I say good, I mean VERY GOOD. Maybe it’s the sunny weather, or my birthday, or this great community, or for all of these reasons combined I’ve been feeling incredible this past month, and I hope that June will be just the same but with a little bit more reading.
Before I recount everything that happened in May, I’d like to say BIG BIG THANK YOU to each and everyone of you who took time to like and comment on my posts! This community makes me so happy every single day.
May was great mostly because of your lovely comments, funny tweets, interesting posts and beautiful bookstagram feeds.
It’s another Tuesday, which means Top Ten Tuesday time! As always I love joining in on the fun and creating content for specific themes. But (you probably already noticed) I always tend to rebel a little bit and give the theme a spin of my own!
This week’s TTT is Top 10 Favorite Books Released in the Last Ten Years, and the idea is to come up with one book per each year. I tend to always talk about my favorite books, so I didn’t feel like repeating something I’ve done before, therefore today I’m talking about my TBR. More specifically – 10 Books Released in the Last Ten Years that are still on my To-Be-Read List!
I went to my vast GoodReads TBR shelf and selected one book for each year that I’m the most excited to read.
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.
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.
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!
«Hiding» by Henry Turner is a YA mystery novel, told from the perspective of a teenage boy who snuck in his ex-girlfriend’s house. The events of the whole book happen during a very short period of time, however, we get quite a lot of flashbacks, memories, explanations, and feelings.
I stumbled upon the Game of Thrones Book Tag first onThe 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!
