Summary :
Laia is a slave.

Elias is a soldier.

Neither is free.

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.

It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.

But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy.

There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.

Review :

Okay, finally got my hand on the keyboard again. My longest hiatus so far. But I get to read few wonderful books to review, including this book!

Sumarry :
Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he’s tracked down by a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.

The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .

OMG! Uncle Rick is back! I know lots of you have read it, but seriously that doesn’t stop me from fangirling all over you.
Before we go any further let me tell you a thing or two. This series is set in the same universe as Pecy Jackson Series, but you can read this book before reading PJO or HOO series. There is Annabeth who have some role but doesn’t really have much influence in the book. And lastly, I think this book is one of the best Rick Riordan’s work for the last decade. I mean , seriously, The Nine Worlds? Yeah, in all Rick’s works they set in only one freaking planet. But this one. Dude, the set is not in 9 planet but nine freaking dimension. How cool is that?

Summary :
Indie has spent the last few weeks frantically searching for Paige. She's tried every spell imaginable, but witchcraft has gotten her nowhere, and she's going crazy with guilt. Despite what her warlock boyfriend, Bishop, tells her, Indie knows it's her fault her best friend was kidnapped by the Priory. And with the Priory destroyed, finding Paige feels more hopeless than ever-especially when Indie discovers that Paige isn't even on Earth. She's trapped in Los Demonios, an alternate dimension of Los Angeles filled with evil paranormals. No one who has gone there has ever come out.

Fueled by terror and loyalty, Indie is desperate to find a way into the underworld prison. She'll worry about getting out later. But facing the dark world's most dangerous witches and warlocks on her own means keeping her plan hush-hush-and forging alliances with some sketchy people, including a seriously sexy sorcerer.

Sometimes a witch must keep secrets from the people she cares about most. And sometimes she isn't the only one with secrets…


Happy Halloween, folks! So, after months without seeing you guys, I think it would be perfect for me to write a post that match today's event. Here we go,then.

It's been a year and half ever since I read the first book, but I have no problem with reading the second book. This book gives us enough explanation for us to catch up with what happen in the book. There are pros and cons in this book, but it's still more than worth it to be read.

In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them...

Okay, so it’s been years since I wanted this book. I finally get a copy and I can’t wait to share my experience with you. Well, since I found this book through TMI, I guess there will be some comparison with the series.

Review :
Seriously, where the hell has this book been all this time?? Right after reading this book, I felt so dumbfounded. I mean I have known about this book for quite some time. But why I never give it a shot? Gosh, it's so frustrating. And it's more frustrating that I only can post my review right now not right after I finish the book.

Discussion : Reading Slum

Saturday, May 30, 2015

Okay, if you have been following my blog, you probably realize that I rarely done book disscussion before. But I decided to write one because I think this is something that many readers have suffered including me, I suppose.

For you who don't know what reading slum is, well, I don't really understand about the term either actually. I've just heard about it few moments ago. But I came to the conclusion that reading slum basically a moment where you just getting lazy to read and feeling devastated because well, reading is your life.

Honestly, I never realize that I have been suffering reading slum until I watched about it on YouTube. *I give credit to Sasha Alsberg's Abooktopia*I think every readers has their own  So, I guess this is how my reading slum began.
