2017 February Bookhaul

Yups i know, i posted my #FebruaryBookhaul a couple of days. I was thinking not to buy additional books coz i spent more than half-a-thousand-peso buying the first two books. But when i found this additional three books at Booksale where you can buy pre-owned books, i cant help it. I was just planning to buy GREY but upon looking around, i found this two books which are on my wishlist previous years, so i bought it. Lalalalalala… ย โค

ANIME REVIEW: CHARLOTTE

654871

Since Haikyuu Season 2 isnโ€™t complete yet, Iโ€™ve decided to find shorter anime series and luckily I have a copy of the โ€˜Charlotteโ€™ series. And upon watching the first episode I decided to finish it ASAP. And I made it.

SPOILER ALERT*** The story is unique. Adolescent having different abilities that wore-out after adolescent stage, where they got from the comet named as charlotte which passes Earth every 75 year.

The friendship, family-relationship, determination, love, commitment is so intense that made the characters unique compared to each other. And their abilities too is unimaginable.

The twist of revealing mysteries seems fine to me. Death of some characters is really painful. I was lil bit emotionally tortured but the ending lift my spirit and so overall the deaths is worth it.

And since I started to love and get addicted to anime again, I am looking for another series which Iโ€™ll be watching with hubby as soon as we finish on CAPETA and YOWAMUSHI PEDAL. Yups, weโ€™re on that bicycle team as of the moment. But its just I who watched this Charlotte. But donโ€™t worry Iโ€™ll ask him to watch this too.

So as I end my review, itโ€™s a 5/5 stars for this short-yet-worth-watching anime series. ๐Ÿ™‚

THE LAST OLYMPIAN (BOOK REVIEW)

Book Title: The Last Olympian (Book#5) | Series Title: Percy Jackson and the Olympians | Author: Rick Riordan| EDITION: Disney Hyperion, Paperback | Status: Owned | Reading Time: May 13 โ€“ 18, 2015

Itโ€™s a very late post of book review I know, but I must write anyway. Coz this ends my journey on Percyโ€™s world, for the meantime. And this feeling strikes me again. As always, itโ€™s a bittersweet feeling coz at last, I finally found answers for Percy and Annabeth and the whole team. Buts itโ€™s just sad I needed to wait longer time before getting a good time for Heroes of Olympus. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wasnโ€™t expecting whom does this โ€˜Last Olympianโ€™ refers to. And it was she afterall, Hestia. There are lots of things to share about this book. The action scenes are amazing and intense. I canโ€™t even find right words describing how I feel how the team battles Kronos himself. And those deaths of characters, itโ€™s heartbreaking. Indeed it is written amazingly that I felt every emotions.

#1: ANNABETH AND RACHEL. These two brave girls really play a very good role in saving the world from Titans attack. They did their part bravely and intelligently that really helps Percy in surviving the battle. They made him stronger and tougher.

#2: ACHILLES CURSE. I didnโ€™t see it coming. But itโ€™s a good thing for Percy. He was invincible and indestructible and braver and tougher. And what made him do this possible is very sweet. Without her knowing, Annabeth made this possible for Percy.

#3: LUKE. You know Iโ€™ve hated him since โ€˜The Lightning Thiefโ€™, but I pity him on this book. His family, his love for Annabeth, this made him weak. But at the end he chose what is right. And it made him a hero. He was just used by Kronos.

#4: LUKEโ€™S BATTLE. Lukeโ€™s own battle with Kronos is creepy. Though because he wanted still to be good and reverse what have had done. But unfortunately he didnโ€™t succeed. But he bravely and wholeheartedly choose right path on his last breath.

#5: RACHEL ELIZABETH DARE. Iโ€™ll track you down on Heroes of Olympus, Iโ€™ll see to it. Well, I wasnโ€™t expecting also how big her role is. Itโ€™s a good thing I watched her carefully on her first encounter with Percy. And what she did to save Percy from the school madness is a job well done.

#6: THE OFFER. Being the hero on saving the world and Olympus as well made Zeus grant Percyโ€™s wish to be immortal, if he say so. But heโ€™s not like other hero who wanted that eternity. He wants to experience those glimpse of his life as shown by the Faith.

#7: THE CLAIMING. And letโ€™s expect a bunch of demigods, coz itโ€™s a must now for the Olympians to claim their sons and daughtersโ€ฆ Letโ€™s count starting with Jayson on HoOโ€ฆ Thanks Percy for the chance to meet them one by one. ๐Ÿ™‚

#8: BOB AND SALLY. I just hope he will be a real good guy for Percyโ€™s mom. For she deserve a normal love story too, am I right?

#9: THE ENDING, ITSELF. The ending of the book is really an interesting one. I wish I could read Heroes of Olympus right now. But itโ€™s a worth waiting for I know, coz Iโ€™ll be reliving with the characters soon. I know it will be roller-coaster-ride again, so Iโ€™m prepping myself for it.

All-in-all, I canโ€™t write everything on my mind. Itโ€™s simply 5/5 rating for this last book. And I know, youโ€™ve wanted too to read it by yourself, so do it now and experience a mind-blowing actions and quests and love and loyalty and commitmentโ€ฆ Thanks Mr. CampHalfBlood for the wonderful journey. Thanks Percy for a forever-remembered quests and happenings. Itโ€™s a goodbye for nowโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ™‚

CURRENTLY READING: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Is it just me who get bored on the first pages?

Yeah, after reading Percy Jackson’s The Last Olympian, i grabbed Aveyard’s book and started reading right away. But i felt bored, and i found it difficult to flip on second page on Chapter I. Is it really boring or maybe because i shifted to a new writing skill immediately?

But, on Chapter II to Chapter IV im starting to like it, i guess. But it took me one day to finish the Chapter I coz i felt bored as i say. And now, i hope i can make it till middle to last chapters without gettin bored. Coz on some reviews they were tellin its a great read. And im also lookin forward finishing it before school days begins…

Book Search Wednesday#02

Yeah, a lil bit late post guys. I was able to browse books yesterday for this entry… And what i got are these:

#4: THE BLACKWELL PAGES by KL Armstrong and MA Marr

I’ve been wanting modern adaptation of Greek Mythology and this series comes out on my search… And its a trilogy, so i guess it would be a good time reading… ๐Ÿ™‚

#5: CASTER CHRONICLES by Kamih Garcia and Margaret Stohl

And last night i was watching its movie adaptation of Beautiful Creatures… and i searched it after and i found out that its been on my To-Read list on my Goodreads account… And so it will be another must-have book series, i guess ๐Ÿ™‚

Book Search Wednesday#01

fbanner - booksearch

Iโ€™ve decided to create my own event now coz I envy those book lovers who have the sameโ€ฆ And so since Wednesday is the only day that I think I am not busy enough at work and at home, so it will be the scheduled day for book searching and hauntingโ€ฆ And here is the first list:

#1: FOUR A DIVERGENT COLLECTION

SERIES TITLE: Divergent (Supplementary Book) | AUTHOR: Veronica Roth | YEAR OF PUBLISHED: 2014

Since Iโ€™m still on the Insurgent (Divergent Book#2), I am planning to grab a copy of this. Though it gathers some bad reviews on Goodreads because it came out just after the Allegiant has ended, I still want to read it. Iโ€™m still on Fourโ€™s spell so I will take the chance to read it though. I hope I can get a copy before finishing the Allegiant so it will be read immediately. ๐Ÿ™‚


#2: Fairytales for Wilde Girls

AUTHOR: Allyse Near | YEAR OF PUBLISHED: 2013 | GENRE: Fantasy, Young Adult

Iโ€™ll give a shot to add this new author (for me, since I havenโ€™t seen her name before) because the title itself catches my attention. And Iโ€™ve been to dystopian world and mythology for so long, so I want a new one. But of course, this book needs to wait for a coupla months I guessโ€ฆ So new book on my TBR list I guessโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ™‚


#3: Huntress

AUTHOR: Melinda Lo | YEAR OF PUBLISHED: 2011 | GENRE: Fantasy, Young Adult

Iโ€™ve been so in-love with books portrays young ladyโ€™s bravery. And this book added magic world and adventuresโ€ฆ And so maybe Iโ€™m givin this a try on my list too.ย  And the character is Chinese, lalalala, Asian character girl, so its worth tryin for i guess… ๐Ÿ™‚
