The Last Protector by Stephanie Keyes (Book Blitz) + GIVEAWAY

The Last Protector
Release Date: 12/15/14
Inkspell Publishing

Summary from Goodreads:
Gabriel Stewart helped his best friend Kellen St. James save the world from The Scourge in the Battle of Dublin. But before that? Gabe was just an ordinary guy who kept having dreams about a little boy with black hair and green eyes—a boy he hadn’t even met yet.

And even weirder? Gabe’s mind kept replaying these images on loop of things he’d never seen. He heard voices in his head when no one was around. And he actually blew off hot Valerie Gibbons to chase after the black-haired kid in the park. What was up with that?

As Gabe searches for the truth, fate continually puts him in Kellen’s path, but will he be able to stop the Children of Danu from stealing Kellen before the battle begins? What will it take for Gabe to become The Last Protector?

*The Last Protector is a companion novella--intended to be read after the other books in the series.


Creeping along, I slipped through the gates before they closed. The exterior lights shut off. The
glow from inside the mansion threw shadows across the courtyard, making everything around me
creepier. If that was even possible. At least these people hadn’t invested in motion lights. 

I needed to get to the window on the second floor. And how the heck did I know that? Like
everything else about this trip, I just did. A tall trellis swamped with vines ran up one side of the
house. That could be the ticket. I inched closer. 

I'd just about made it when a raspy voice reached my ears. 

"The boy is alone. You've done well by me.” 

Shivers ran up and down my arms as I swallowed and turned. No one. It must've come from
inside the house. Ahead, a small window, one of those decorative deals, stood open. Taking slow
steps, I moved toward it. 

"Thank you," said a second voice, crisp, sort of fancy…British, maybe? 

"We can take him now. Use his power to harness what I need,” Spooky Voice said. 

“As you wish."

Go, go, go. A voice or maybe my own thoughts echoed inside my brain. I didn’t have time to

Go, go, go. The voice came back. I had to get to the second floor. Now.

The wood trellis scratched my hands when I grabbed hold. Splinters pierced my skin as I scaled
the wall. I had to get to the boy. 

"This is crazy, Gabe." I muttered the words. “This could actually be the stupidest thing you've
ever done."

I climbed to the window way faster than I thought I could. This one part of me wanted to glance
back, to see if Val noticed me. I ignored it though—I needed to get to the top.  To the kid with green eyes.

Is fanfiction literature? (Discussion)

That's right, today I am going to share with you what I think about fanfiction.

I hadn't really read much fanfiction before around 2 months. Frankly, it's not what I typically read but something I just do from time to time. It started with some Divergent fanfiction and I had never imagined there were so many people invested in developing stories for their favourite characters. These stories sometimes feel as if they should have been part of the book. In fact, this is what the point of this genre, if I can call it like that, is.

I get it when people say fanfiction is not real literature because it's someone else's idea. They have a point but are not 100% correct. Yes, ideas might be taken from another place but it is the way the story is developed that matters. As a matter of fact, many fanfictions have surpassed their origin story. And maybe the problem comes from here. Every now and then some aspiring authors actually develop  the story in a much better way than the original one. But this act can also hurt the person who wrote the thing first.

This might somewhat hypocritical, but I son't agree fanfiction should be classified as original work. When publishers accept a manuscript like that they should publish it in fanfiction and say what it is based off. The original author needs to have some sort of credit for the story.

In short, I agree fanfiction is literature but has to be what it is - fanfiction. If publishing houses are to publish more and more of those, they need to promote them as ones, not as original stories.

So what do you guys think? Do you agree fanfiction is literature? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below and I look forward to reading your opinions.

'Branded' is Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki's dark, dystopian novel which is, at least for me, one of the best books of the year.

The first book in the 'Sinners' series which take place around the branded with lust Lexi Hamilton.


Fifty years ago The Commander came into power and murdered all who opposed him. In his warped mind, the seven deadly sins were the downfall of society. 


To punish the guilty, he created the Hole, a place where sinners are branded according to their sins. Sinners are forced to live a less than human existence in deplorable conditions, under the watchful eye of guards who are ready to kill anyone who steps out of line.

Now, LUST wraps around my neck like thick, blue fingers, threatening to choke the life out of me. I’ve been accused of a crime I didn’t commit, and the Hole is my new home. 


At first I did not know what to expect of this novel. I knew  it was some sort of a dystopian but nothing more than that.  I was genuinely surprised by how good this books is. It has all the qualities of a gripping read. 

The story grabs you from the first page and really takes you on this adventure in the Hole. It shows this dark and depressing world where people get branded according to their sin. The plot is very captivating and  well thought-out. There is a stong, emotional impact at certain point that made me feel uncomfortable reading it on the train due to some sort of rushing feelings. I did sense some revolution, propaganda and war  themes. Also what I liked is the fact the story isn't based off  the romance. It is well-done and is unobtrusive.
You can really relate to the main characters, specifically, Lexi. She is also the most developed one. She starts with being this weak personage who then becomes this strong, young woman willing to fight. I really enjoyed that change.

The writing style is unique and seamless. The two authors have blended without any problems, whatsoever. They are descriptive and have created this not so exuberant world. They have done their job.

'Branded' is an appealing and exhilarating red which will make you feel unsure of what is going and will keep you on the edge of your seat and just when things can't get more intense you fall of the chair. The writers have done a terrific job at explaining the plot and in small, but needed details.

Did you like the book? Are you excited for the next one? Makes ure to let me know in the comments down below. 

The second book in the series - 'Hunted' comes out in the summer of 2015.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Review

The highly anticipated sequel to ' The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ' is a beautifully tragic and a visually stunning work of art.

The story picks up right where we left off with the previous movie with Katniss being full of regret

because she was saved instead of Peeta and the other tributes. It quickly evolves in this movie about a war and what it means with the underlying theme of the consequences of the games over Katniss and what PTSD can do to you.

Jennifer Lawrence brings a marvelous performance and successfully portrays this complex character.  One of the most memorable scenes was when she got back to District 12. We also see Josh Hutcherson a.k.a. Peeta go through many transitions and his acting has only improved since the first film. The newcomers,  Julianne Moore and Nataly Dormer are scene-stealers.

Many people,  including myself, we're afraid that 'Part 1' is going to be dull and boring. It was nothing whatsoever. The pacing was on point and the same goes for storytelling.

The director,  Francis Lawrence, has delivered the best experience you could possibly expect from the first half of the book. There is, in fact,  humor added which was missing in the previous installments. He had also done this remarkable job at expanding the universe with showing us more from the different districts. The CGI work is better than ever before and so are the cinematography and editing.
The score is also very fitting and has borrowed a few things from previous installments. The awaited 'Hanging Tree' song is very unique and got stuck into my head.

In short,  I can easily say this is the best book-to-movie adaptation and even surpassed the book in a few ways.  The acting and storytelling are phenomenal and the ending is sensational.  The film ends on such a high note and cliffhanger which leaves the fans yearning for the fourth and final installment of the series.

Make sure to let me know what you thought of the movie in comments down below. :)

Ревю: Войната на Буквите от Людмила Филипова

"Годината е 927-ма. В мрачно подземие живее уродлив божий неверник, образован изгнаник, който ще разкаже тази история. История за призванието, което малцина щастливци откриват. За избора между любовта и обречеността пред дълга. За съкровена тайна, пазена в сърцето на велик народ. История за тайнствата на българската азбука и скритата в нея сила."

"Войната на Буквите" е роман, в който се съдържат толкова много неща - увлекателност, невероятен стил на писане, обективност и още много други позитивни качества. Историята е увлекателна дори за мен, имайки предвид, че не съм фен на истоически романи, а героите са толкова добре представени. 

Както споменах, попринцип не сипадам по исторически романи. Може би е така, защото не бях попаднал на правилния досега. Този промени погледа ми върху този жанр и като цяло върху историята. Би могъл да бъде използван като пример за това, че исторята не е нужно да е скучна.

Грабналото ме нещо тук бе сюжета. Всички сме учили за царовете Симеон и Петър до някаква степен. В моя случай не са изучавани толкова подробно, но тук определено е наблегнато върху детайлите. Всичко е свързано и се случва поради някаква причина. Героите постоянно изпадат в трудни ситуации, развиват се и е толкова лесно да си се представиш на тяхно място. 

Стила на писане e изключително приятен и увлекателен. В такива книги или ти става интересно от първата страница, или ти доскучава и затваряш книгата. Тук авторката е постигнала първото. Щом започнах книгата не исках да я оставя. Два или три дни подред стояк до късните часове на нощта. Или пък ми се случва нещо по-лошо - изпускам си спирката на метрото. Точно такива книги обичам. Людмила Филипова вече определено е сред любимите ми автори.

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Have you read "The 5th Wave" by Rick Yancey? If you haven't come back once you've read it.

If you haven't read "The Infinite Sea" yet the review will be spoiler-free.

I have been waiting for this book to come out for a long time. I read the prequel back in January I think and that cliffhanger just lurked me until I read this one.

I received this book on September 26th I started and finished it on the following day. It was so interesting and gripping that I couldn't put it down. It picks up where we left off and we get to see our favourite characters and we're introduced to some new ones.

Did I love this book? Not necessarily, but it was as good as I expected and I really enjoyed it. So many things happen and at the end you just don't know what and who to trust. The characters were just so realistic and relate-able. They were so believable and I just could help but love Cassie even more.

I also liked how it was thought-provoking, considering in this book happened a lot less things as opposed to the previous, 500-page book. The stakes got higher and things tighten even more and I felt I got more questions rather than answers but, hey, as long as there are answers in the next book I am okay.

My main problem was there wasn't enough of Cassie. She was there like half the book. There is a lot of action and plot twists. But the biggest one was not connected to Cassie but to Ringer. It is about the aliens and it's really mind-blowing. It just puts everything into question.

The characters develop but not as much as they did in the previous book. As I said there was, indeed, a lot of action but I felt something was missing. Maybe it's because the character's have changed enough in the prequel.

Also, there were lots of feels in this book. Like I was constantly nervous if someone will die. Rick somehow managed to emotionally drain me. Of course, this didn't stopped me from reading the book in less than six hours.

The writing was almost flawless. I could easily put myself into the character's shoes but sometimes I found some descriptions unnecessary. There is so much one can learn from this book. There are so many quotes and powerful messages.

Overall, it was a fast-paced book, filled with action and jaw-dropping twists. If you are like me and you liked the first book I can assure you won't be let down by this one and everything you know will be put into question.

                                    RATING: 94%

If you liked this review please share it, like it and/or subscribe to this blog! I really appreciate it. Thank you. :)

Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout + GIVEAWAY

Hello fellow book lovers, today I'm back and happy to say that I'll finally review the last book in the "LUX" series. In addition, my book fellows and me will be giving away a Signed copy of the book(more information down below).


Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.


It was so bittersweet reading this book. It made me cry and laugh and kept me on the edge of my seat. I had put the bar high and Jennifer somehow got even further by making it one of the most satisfying conclusions to a series. Everything wrapped-up nice and logically. This is why I love the author, she manages to give the fans all they want and yet surpassing their expectations.

The plot was so well-thought out and laid out. There was a lot of action, kissing(it's a Jennifer L. Armentrout's book), character development and plot development. The writer somehow manages to put just about enough of everything so that you don't get bored.

Speaking of character development no-one can deny that is here. Katy is one of my most favourite and relatable character. She changed so much from the first book in a good direction. The fact that she's a blogger inspired me to continue blogging. I loved how she compared her world to the ones in the dystopian books she reads because that will be going through my mind too.

The writing was astonishing as always. The comparisons and the non-mistakable points of view were top-notch. The dialogue was real and not intimidating. I have to congratulate Jennifer for making me feel all kinds of emotions whilst reading her books. Good job.

"Opposition" is the epic conclusion to the "LUX" series and it is a swoon-worthy read that will keep you in tension while making you smile and cry at the same time. If you are yet to read/buy this book make sure to participate in the giveaway that my fellows and I are holding.

September In A Review #1

So today I decided to start my new section on the blog called "Wrap-Up". As you can guess it's about the books I've read this month. I'll also be posting about the book-to-movie adaptation that I watched + some other books.

Let's jump into it. This month was pretty successful for me because I managed to read SEVEN books. I know it might not sound as much but put in school and some other time-consuming things and you get a mess...

So first up I have 

1. THE GIVER by Luis Lowry


Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

Overall, I liked this book, even though I had some issues with it. But given the fact it is one of the first dystopian novels I can get over it. Plus there was the film that fixed my problems with the book. It was different but in a good way.

2. THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas


After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. 

I really enjoyed this book. It was action-packed with a mystery but the pacing is slow for me. Except that I liked the book.

3. WHITE HOT KISS by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses. 

It's no secret I am a Jennifer L. Armentrout fan. I have loved the LUX series and this series is awesome...  This book was so fast-paced and action-packed and was written so well... Congrats Jennifer, You've impressed me, again!

4. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare


Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written early in the career of playwright William Shakespeare about two young "star-cross'd lovers" whose deaths ultimately unite their feuding families. 

This book... aghhh. I want to forget about reading it. It was cringe-worthy and stupid. I get that it is a tragedy and about  star-crossed lovers but come on.  When you're sixteen you'd know better than to kill yourself just because you can't be with the girl you met a few days ago. I am all for romance but what was this build up for?  It wuld have a much stornger impact on me if it wasn't taking place in a few days. Few months, okay. Weeks, oh well, I can get over it but not in a few days. I am going to shut up now.

5. MR MERCEDES by Stephen King


In a mega-stakes, high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes.

This book is weird.... Like all of King's books.  It's  a mystery but not in the way you think . It is compelling yet at moments I feels like some parts of the books could have been cut out but well, it's King. I enjoyed this books and I could really relate to the characters. 

6. THE INFINITE SEA by Rick Yancey


How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

This book left me speechless., literally. I read it for about 5 or 6 hours.  It's the continuation of "THE 5th WAVE" . It was interesting, left me wandering about a lot things but I didn't love it as much as I did the previous one. 

7. REBOOT by Amy Tintera


Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

This book is so awesome. It had all the elements I want in a story - romance, gripping plot and fast-pacing. The characters are so cool. I loved pretty much everything about this book. The only thing was bugging me was the fact I felt it too familiar.

This was for the books I read. Now let's go to the adaptations.

I know "The Giver" was released back in August in the US but here, in Bulgaria, it came out on September 5th, This is weird considering we've always gotten the movies on time. I LOVED the movie.

Next, "The Maze Runner" came out too which I enjoyed but it wasn't something memorable. I am not saying it was bad by all means but I felt I've watched it already(I have NOT read the book).

I know it's not book related but I wanted to say that I am keeping my fingers crossed and praying fr Jules Bianchi to get better and survive after that incident. My thoughts are with him.

SO what did you guys think of the post? Should I continue with this section? Also tell me which books do you want reviewed? Make sure to let me know in the comment section down below. Thank you for reading and I hope you spread the word and subscribe.
