Books in Colour

This survey was inspired by the lovely Kayla’s feature Saturated Reads. Kayla’s feature is about how she connects emotions with colours. On her feature, she will pick a book and describe what colours that she associates with the book or characters. It’s so interesting. I’ve read books about synaesthesia and it fascinates me. I personally think colours represent a feeling, so I decided to pick an emotion I felt when I thought about a colour and then tried to fit it with a book or character! Please feel free to join in with this little survey!

  • Look at the colours and see if you can fit the emotions (either mine or your own) with a book or a character!

cooltext1691172016

Red- passion/anger- A book/character that displays a lot of passion

The first book that came to mind when I read the description was Divergent by Veronica Roth. A lot of the characters are determined and ambitious. You can also feel the passion and anger within the story. You can’t deny that the first book is completely action packed!

Orange- optimism- A book/character that you believe demonstrates optimism or your favourite optimistic character

Wonder by R.J Palacio is one of the most optimistic books that I’ve read. Our main character Augustus may face some challenges in his life, but he doesn’t let it hold him back. I was impatient with some of humanity whilst reading this book. The way that some act! Urgh. I also really liked that this book showed the adults in Augustus’ life as supportive. All too often in literature adults are missing. This book gave me hope despite the fact it did feature some awful, cowardly human beings!

Yellow- cheerfulness/happiness- A book/character that makes you feel happy

Can You Keep A Secret? by Sophie Kinsella. Chick-lit reads are just so easy to read! Comfort reading for me, for sure!

Green – growth. A character that grows so much throughout the book

A book that I’ve read recently which displayed an enormous amount of growth was Stronger Than You Know by Jolene Parry. The main character develops so much and begins to overcome a lot of demons within the story.

Blue- peace. A book/character that takes you away from everything else going on around you.

Something Real by Heather Demetrios. Whilst it isn’t a ‘peaceful’ story, I was completely immersed in the story and nothing else around me mattered!

Purple- creativity. A book that stands out to you as a really creative, unusual read.

That has to be Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs mainly because of the vintage photographs.

Pink- romantic. A book that you loved the romance or that you yourself are totally in love with!

For me, Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. Urgh, that relationship ❤

Black- the mysterious, deep and the unknown. A book/character that completely messed with your head. 

I have two for this one. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas because that book completely screwed up my head! It’s brilliant. I also am completely blown away by the Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin so far. I can’t work out what’s real and it’s frustrating but so good!

Ten Authors I Own (or have owned!) The Most Books From

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week the topic is Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From. I had to add or have owned into my list this week, because since I’ve started blogging, I’ve become a lot more ruthless with the books I keep.

I’ve mentioned a particular favourite of the author and one I’m looking forward to…because, I can basically!

In no particular order (links go to Goodreads, if there is a page available for the book!):

Cecelia Ahern

972807

This is one of my favourite chick-lit books. What I like about Cecelia Ahern is that her books always have an element of magic/fairy-tale. If You Could See Me Now is about a lonely woman with an imaginary friend. I can’t find the book cover for Cecelia Ahern’s next release but it’s called The Year I Met You and it’s out in October this year. Despite not liking Cecelia’s recent books as much as her earlier books, she’s still an author I check out whenever she has a new book!

Sophie Kinsella

can_you_keep_a_secret_UK22042875

My favourite book by Sophie Kinsella is Can You Keep A Secret? I find it laugh out loud funny and just very easy to read. I have gone off Sophie Kinsella’s books as well recently, but she’s still an author I’ll try due to enjoying her books in the past! I’m looking forward to the next Shopaholic book (Shopaholic to the Stars), even though I’m not sure how much further the series can go!

J.K Rowling

7219317684326

I had to include the first book Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone as it’s what started my Harry Potter love. I’m looking forward to getting around to The Cuckoo’s Calling I know it’s not necessarily the name of J.K Rowling but we all know it’s her.

Dorothy Koomson

6780522

It was hard to pick a favourite for Dorothy Koomson, as I’ve loved so many of her books. The Ice Cream Girls is one of my favourites though.

Philippa Gregory

53820612988106

I absolutely love reading all things Tudor, so I lapped up Philippa’s Tudor series, starting with The Constant Princess with one of my favourite Queens. I’m yet to start The Order of Darkness series, but I’m hoping to enjoy Changeling!

Veronica Roth

1333503718126198

Divergent is such an amazing book. I couldn’t get over how much I enjoyed it. I really want to read Four soon. I love the character Four, so I’m intrigued to read his tale…

Leigh Bardugo

1019415713643163

Oh, Shadow and Bone, I do love you! I love the whole Grisha trilogy. I can’t wait to see what Leigh does next! In the meantime, I do intend to read the novellas that I never knew existed, starting with The Witch of Duva.

Patrick Ness

21187458621462

I absolutely adored The Knife of Never Letting Go, I can’t wait to continue with the series. I’m also so tempted to push A Monster Calls up my TBR list. It’s such a beautiful looking book.

Alex Bell

588601110299005_10152206205679163_3056236486120800683_n

I am a tad bit biased when I speak about this author, because she is one of my best friends. However, Jasmyn is one of my favourite fantasy reads and it has a GORGEOUS cover. Alex’s next book Frozen Charlotte is her first step into YA fiction… it’s horror! I don’t read a lot of horror, but I can tell you I’ll definitely be reading this one!

Malorie Blackman

71490217426230

I adored Noughts and Crosses and can’t wait to continue with the series with Knife Edge.

Top Ten Characters Who Are Powerful Female Leads

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is Top Ten Characters Who X (you fill in the blank — examples: piss me off, are the popular kids, are bookish, would be my bff, that stole my heart, etc. etc.) I have decided to talk about my favourite female leads. I’m a fan of strong female characters. I get too annoyed with wimpy, reliant on male lead characters.

So.. in no particular order here are my favourite powerful female leads:

Katniss- The Hunger Games

2767052

Katniss may have her trouble with guys, but she is an absolutely kick-ass character. She can’t possibly be left out of this list, because she’s one of the most strongest characters I’ve read. Surviving The Hunger Games once is incredible, doing it more than once is unbelievable.

13335037

Tris- Divergent

I have massive love for Tris in the Divergent trilogy. I think she’s such an amazing character. I love her relationship with Four. It doesn’t rule her. She’s her own person.

Hermione- Harry Potter

72193

Throughout the Harry Potter books Hermione develops so much as a character. We first assume she’s an insufferable know-it-all, but really it’s Hermione’s intelligence that saves her best friends time and time again. Where would they be without Hermione? I love that Hermione is such a strong character because of her intellect. What a good role model!

Cinder

cinder

Cinder is such a fantastic character. She’s loyal and brave and doesn’t whine about being a cyborg. She deals well with what she’s got in life.

Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny- The Help

4667024

 

 

 

 

 

 

This book is one of my all-time favourites. I absolutely love that the character of Skeeter is trying to show what life is really like for black maids in the local town. It tackles a very difficult subject beautifully. Our three narrators are all strong in their own ways. I can’t speak highly enough of this book.

Jo March- Little Women

1934

Little Women is one of my favourite classics. I simply adore the tomboyish Jo March. A great, strong, memorable character.

Clara- Unearthly

tumblr_mfhemiu6xE1rlx1m2o1_500

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clara is a great character in the Unearthly trilogy. She’s incredibly likeable and determined to know more about the world in which she lives in!

Juliette- Shatter Me

13455782

What I like so much about Juliette is how much she grows throughout the series. She doesn’t realise her own strength. She becomes a much stronger character in mind and physically too. She learns her own mind.

Matilda

109019

Matilda is another strong character because of her intellect. I think it’s great to see a character in children’s literature that enjoys reading. I think she’s a fantastic female lead. I love how magical Roald Dahl’s books are. Matilda doesn’t realise her own strength, and grows so much as a character. I think Matilda gives a good message of hope to its readers.

Melinda- Speak

954136

I think Laurie Halse Anderson created such a wonderful book with Speak. Yes, it may be controversial, but it’s so important. Melinda goes through so much throughout the course of this book and still manages to find that strength and courage to push forward and find her voice. Speak is a powerful and important book.

What have you picked this week? Feel free to leave your links to your Top Ten posts and I’ll stop by and check out your favourite characters!

Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon.

Gif from tumblr

Yes, just like these girls. (Don’t you just love Beauty and The Beast?)

It took me a while to come up with these books, and I realised that most of the time it’s the relationship that really makes me swoon. (Click on the book image to get to the Goodread’s page!)

Saving JuneHannah Harrington

Saving June

You might think that this is an odd book to include, because it is incredibly sad. However, the relationship between Harper and Jake is so cute. It builds gradually. There’s tension. There’s music involved (Always a winner for me..)

Losing HopeColleen Hoover

17340050

It was definitely all about Holder in this book. I loved reading his point of view. Very swoonworthy character in my opinion!

The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight- Jennifer E.Smith

Probabilityloveatfirstsight

Whilst this isn’t my favourite book of all time, it’s a short and cute read. There are some swoon-worthy lines in there, that I’m sure a lot of people would want said to them!

The Unbecoming Of Mara DyerMichelle Hodkin

8591107

I admit it. I’m in love with Noah Shaw in this series. I’m in love with the series as a whole actually! It’s a head-wrecker. But oh so good!

Divergent- Veronica Roth

13335037

I absolutely adored Divergent. The part of Divergent that makes me swoon is Tris and Four’s relationship. I like how he doesn’t feel like he has to constantly protect Tris. She’s kick ass enough already.

Shatter Me–  Tahereh Mafi

13455782

I thought this book was brilliant. I loved the relationship between Adam and Juliette.  “God, Juliette, I’d follow you anywhere. You’re the only good thing left in this world.”

The Sky Is EverywhereJandy Nelson

6604794

A simply beautiful book. Very sad, but very touching too. Jandy Nelson is a terrific writer and I can’t wait to read her next book!

Me Before YouJojo Moyes

12649718I’m pretty sure that I always put this book on my Top Ten list whenever I can. I think it is possibly one of my favourite books of all time. Touching, emotional and a good romance. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

And For Your InformationDenise Deegan

11069761

This is another book where the relationship really touched me. It was beautiful.

Flat Out Love- Jessica Park

11096647

A brilliant book with a fantastic mix of relationships, banter and family issues. I loved the relationship in this book!

Top Ten Books I Read in 2013

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week a new list is posted for us to complete. This week’s list is the Top Ten Books I Read in 2013.  This is going to be so hard as I really do think I’ve read some amazing books this year! I’ve picked the first 10 five star books on my read this year shelf on Goodreads!

In no particular order…

17233800 13138635 174569678591107

Crash Into YouKatie McGarry– I really got into the Pushing The Limits series this year, but Crash Into You was my favourite. It was a very emotional read.

These Broken StarsAmie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner– I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did.

Cross My HeartCarmen Reid– This book really touched me. I thought it was superb!

Stay Where You Are And Then LeaveJohn Boyne– Another touching read!

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer– Michelle Hodkin–  I absolutely love this series. It messed with my head, but I can’t wait to see how it concludes in 2014!

 13335037 13049981 18300173 6461779 17340050

DivergentVeronica Roth–  I fell in love with this series. Divergent gripped me right from the start!

BoundlessCynthia Hand– I loved this series (well apart from the second Hallowed, which I was pretty indifferent to!) and Boundless was the perfect ending to the series!

The Flavours of LoveDorothy Koomson– Dorothy Koomson is a superb author. I always pre-order her books and so far I’ve never been disappointed! This book is actually quite dark, which I don’t think you’d expect from the cover.

Magic Under GlassJaclyn Dolamore- This story was so magical. I loved it and can’t wait to read the next in the series!

Losing HopeColleen Hoover– For some reason I loved this book much more than Hopeless. I just love Holder!

I could have added so many more to this list!

I am linking up with Jamie from the fantastic blog The Perpetual Page Turner to fill in this bookish survey for 2013.

BEST IN BOOKS 2013

Best Book You Read In 2013? (If you have to cheat — you can break it down by genre if you want or 2013 release vs. backlist -)

YA – Ooh this is a tough one. I’ll go for Undone by Cat Clarke!

Dystopian – This is so hard. I love dystopian reads. I think it has to be Divergent by Veronica Roth though. I read all of the Divergent series this year as I was so late to it. Divergent was by far the best!

Historical Fiction – It has to be Cross My Heart (And Hope to Live) by Carmen Reid.

ParanormalPivot Point by Kasie West.

Science FictionThese Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.

Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?

Gutted by this answer, but it is definitely Requiem by Lauren Oliver. I couldn’t finish it. I was just so disappointed!

Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2013?

And For Your Information by Denise Deegan. I loved The Butterfly Novels, (which I wasn’t expecting to love as much as I did) but the second book in the series nearly made me cry, and completely changed my opinion of a character I had previously disliked.

Book you read in 2013 that you recommended to people most in 2013?

The Reason I Jump by Naoki Higashida. I’ve got most people at my work to read it. It’s about autism from the point of view of a young boy with autism. It really opened my eyes.

Best series you discovered in 2013?

I’ve discovered so many new series this year, but I haven’t finished all of them yet. So I’ll go with one I have finished. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. I loved Unearthly and Boundless, but I think Hallowed suffered from middle book syndrome. Other than that, I really enjoyed the series!

Favorite new author you discovered in 2013?

Katie McGarry.

Best book that was out of your comfort zone or was a new genre for you?

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.

Most thrilling, unputdownable book in 2013?

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.

Book You Read In 2013 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year?

I don’t often re-read books any more, but I could possibly re-read Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Favourite cover of a book you read in 2013?

I hate to mention it again, as I want to try and mix things up, but this cover is absolutely stunning…

13138635

Most memorable character in 2013?

There could be SO many answers to this question. I think I’m going to have to say Tris from Divergent. I LOVE her.

Most beautifully written book read in 2013?

Another hard question. I’ve read so many beautifully written books this year. I think it might have to be Stay Where You Are and Then Leave by John Boyne.

Book that had the greatest impact on you in 2013?

So many books have had an impact on me this year. But I guess, it’s one I’ve already mentioned, The Reason I Jump by Naoki Higashida. Purely because I could relate to it so much and it had an impact on my working life.

Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2013 to finally read?

Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Favourite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2013?

From The Reason I Jump:

“True compassion is about not bruising the other person’s self-respect. That’s what I think, anyway.”

Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2013?

(How I did this: Went to my read books on Goodreads and sorted by page number and just looked for what I knew I read this year that was the shortest and longest.)

Shortest– Confession of A Chalet Girl by Lorraine Wilson (80 pages- novella)
Longest — Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese (541 pages)

Book That Had A Scene In It That Had You Reeling And Dying To Talk To Somebody About It? (a WTF moment, an epic revelation, a steamy kiss, etc. etc.) Be careful of spoilers!

Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. I’m just waiting for my sister to read it so we can discuss it! Hurry up, Beth 😉

Favourite Relationship From A Book You Read In 2013 (be it romantic, friendship, etc).

Would it be completely pathetic to say Todd and Manchee from The Knife of Never Letting Go? Yes, I’m totally going with a friendship between man and dog!

Favourite Book You Read in 2013 From An Author You’ve Read Previously

The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier! (Review to follow!)

Genre You Read The Most From in 2013?

Young Adult!

Newest fictional crush from a book you read in 2013?

Hmmm… I quite like my Losing Hope review, but I often have issues of thinking my reviews are crap as I don’t have confidence in my writing! I just love to read and share my thoughts!

Allegiant (Spoiler Free Review)

10616322

How did I get it?:
I bought it!

Synopsis:

One choice will define you.

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

 The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

 But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

Thoughts:

This book is going to be incredibly hard to review. I managed to avoid spoilers before I read it, which I think really helped. It is because of this, that I decided to publish a spoiler free review. I know most hardcore fans have already read it, but I’m being mindful of those that haven’t.

Before reading Allegiant I was really aware of some sort of backlash because of the ending. I also had heard that it didn’t quite match the rest of the book in the series. It was because of this, that I think I started reading Allegiant with lowered expectations.

Allegiant wasn’t ever going to match Divergent for me. Much like Insurgent didn’t match it either. I think Divergent was an exceptional debut and it’s probably one of my favourite books of all time. This doesn’t mean to say that I didn’t enjoy Allegiant. I certainly did, but I think I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it.

Allegiant picks up from when Insurgent leaves, which I always enjoy. It does feel like a completely different book to Divergent and Insurgent, which is why I can completely understand why some readers have found it incredibly frustrating. Personally, I liked the direction the book went in. For me, it felt more emotional and real. I do love authors that aren’t afraid to take risks with their characters and write a character’s life that stays true to the character and not their readers’ expectations. I imagine that Veronica Roth knew exactly how fans of the series wanted it to end. To me, she’s kept really true to herself and her characters. She’s gone against what everyone wanted and that to me is impressive and brave. Never mind that I wanted a completely different ending. I felt really emotional when I finished it, because I didn’t want it to end in the way it did. Yet, I completely applaud Veronica Roth for finishing it in the way she had envisaged from the beginning.

This isn’t a rave review for Allegiant though. As I said, I have a love/hate relationship with the book. I didn’t really care for the world building in Allegiant. I didn’t think it was developed enough. Too much was going on, so I tried to just go with it and hope that it all fell into place eventually (which it did, but if I’m being picky, I would’ve liked the world building to be seamless.)

I wasn’t keen on the new characters. I didn’t really connect with them as much as I hoped. I also wanted more moments between Four and Tris. I have loved that relationship since Divergent, and although it was a bit rocky in Insurgent, I wanted them to come together a bit more. I’ve come to realise and accept though, although the relationship in this series is important, it is not the most vital part of the story. The main focus of this trilogy are the struggles we have with family.

I didn’t think the dual POV between Four and Tris was distinct enough. I usually really like a dual perspective, but I don’t think it worked with Allegiant. It didn’t spoil it for me, but the voices were too similar to work effectively.

I’m hoping that this review has made some sort of sense. I’m not as disappointed as I thought I might be, considering what other bloggers have thought of it. I don’t know if this is because I was aware of so much criticism that I prepared myself for something awful, which it wasn’t. Veronica Roth, in my opinion, has written a very intriguing, different and brave trilogy. She has created a fantastic protagonist and stayed true to the character. I look forward to whatever she writes next. I hope she’s not put off writing because of the backlash. She’s certainly a writer to watch out for in my eyes.

Would I recommend it?:
Yes! 3.5 stars

I don’t usually do this, but for this book I feel it’s necessary. If you want a different perspective other than my own, please check out these blogs:
Maria from Reading Is The Ultimate Aphrodisiac (SPOILERS)
Denise from Life With No Plot (SPOILER FREE)
Jess from Jess Heart Books. (SPOILERS)
Helen from Big Book, Little Book (SPOILER FREE)

Now straight from Veronica Roth’s mouth, if you don’t mind spoilers please read THIS on why she gave the Divergent trilogy that ending.
