EVERY LAST BREATH (THE DARK ELEMENTS #3) – JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT

Some loves will last ’til your dying breath...
Every choice has consequences—but Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.
Torn between two worlds, Layla has no certainties, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them. But sometimes, when the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…

I was really looking forward to reading this, I mean, after the first two books I had high hopes and, once again, Armentrout didn’t let me down.  Everything that I hoped would happen, did, along with some moments that I really hoped wouldn’t... but we’ll get onto that later.

Having found out the identity of the Lilin, Layla’s universe seemed to collapse.  With no family to turn to, Layla is determined to both repair her shattered relationship with her adoptive family and secure the world from utter, apocalypse-style annihilation.  Now, decked out with mysterious new powers and unusual feathered wings, it is up to Layla to decide which part of her to listen to (demon or warden) and fight like crazy to save her race and the rest of the damn world, from the devastation of the Lilin.  

Filled with adorable banter, exhilarating action and toe-curling romance, this book has everything and, if you can’t tell, I absolutely loved it to pieces!   

Despite the fact that this trilogy can be a little bit predictable and that I am still not quite decided on what I think of the ending, I enjoyed every moment.  I even brought myself to appreciate those where Armentrout decided to have my hear torn from my chest and chucked into an incinerator...



That just about sums up my time with the Dark Elements trilogy - it definitely hurts, but who doesn't like a bit of pain.  

It is definitely not a book for everyone, with a love triangle and a whole heap of soppy scenes but I think it is really well written with strong characters and a kickass leading lady, perfect for teens with a soft spot for love and a passion for the supernatural.  If you are a confessed romantic, this is a great book for you!  

And just to finish it off, I will leave you with my favourite quote:
You’re like the cute version of the village idiot.

Rating: 4/5

Oh My GOD!  This review is going to probably be majorly disjointed because I seriously can’t put down how I feel right now.  To fully summarise my experience with this series:



Feyre is freaking awesome, Rhys is life, Amren is still our loveable firedrake, Azriel and Cassian are, well, Azriel and Cassian and Mor is vulnerable in a way we’ve…

THE LONG WALK- STEPHEN KING

Hey all! I thought I'd celebrate my first published review by reviewing one of my favourite books of all time - Stephen King's The Long Walk.


America has become a police state, one hundred boys are selected to enter an annual contest where the winner will be awarded whatever he wants for the rest of his life.  There is no second prize.
The game is simple - maintain a steady walking pace of four miles per hour without stopping. Raymond (Ray) Garraty is one of a hundred boys, none older than eighteen, who are walking for the Prize.


Three warnings, and you're out - permanently.
In the near future , 100 boys are chosen annually to walk in a televised competition where the winner is the one not dead at the end of it all.  The rules are simple; walk and don’t stop, don’t drop below 4 miles per hour.  If you mess up, you get a warning, 3 warnings and then you get a ticket - a bullet to the head, throat, wherever they can get it in.  The ultimate battle of mind against body.  The stor…

With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

“It is not such a hard thing, is it - to die for your friends.”



Holly crap, what a ride!!!  I want to scream, and cry, and throw myself at a wall endlessly because whoa!  This book had me hanging on from the start and took me down so many twisting roads that I never saw comi…

THE CATCHER IN THE RYE - J.D. SALLINGER

The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, named Holden Caulfield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, second hand description, he leaves prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days. 
The boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story. Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it.

There is just one thing to say about this book; you relate to Holden, the disparaging and contemptuous protagonist, or you don’t.  It is honestly as simple as that.  

Unlike what seems to be a great number of satisfied readers, I found Holden to be an exceptionally judgemental character with little tolerance for others and an immature outlook on life in general.  While some people disregard his troubled and flawed narration on account of its comical cynicism,…

QUEEN OF SHADOWS (THRONE OF GLASS #4) – SARAH J. MAAS
