REVIEW- AngelFall by Susan Ee

Angel Fall by Susan Ee

AngelFall

AngelFall by Susan Ee is an apocalyptic representation of what might happen if God decided to rage on the earth and kill everyone. It starts with Penryn (A strange name when I first heard it but I like it.) a young 17-year-old girl trying to stay away from the Angels and gangs that ravage and kill, plus trying to keep her sister and mother out of harms way. When trying to leave the city, Penryn meets Raffe, a mysterious angel who she first thought of as the enemy but ended up saving him. All Penryn wanted was to have a normal life with her family, she knows that’s never going to happen…

So I’d like to start off with how fast I read this book. I stayed up till past midnight on two different nights trying to finish it and see what happens next. Through the last seventy pages of the book, I was hanging on. I felt as if I was in the book with them, watching them and seeing what happens. But, lets face it. There’s always got to be an end to this book.

Once again it’s a book in a trilogy where it keeps you hanging on every single word you read and then they don’t conclude it properly. By not concluding it properly it makes you want to read the second book (Which it does!). It only saddened me to know I didn’t have the second book on my shelf waiting.

Let’s talk about the characters. Raffe and Penryn fitted together perfectly even though they were complete opposites. These characters were intriguing and always had surprises right around the corner for you to figure out.

I recommend this book to absolutely everyone who enjoys apocalyptic books with a little romance (not too much). It has lots of action scenes and lots of different scenes for you to imagine in your mind.

I rate this:🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 out of five stars

Note: There will be some major editing of previous posts soon so don’t get worried if some posts don’t look the same. ANOTHER THING:  I will be posting reviews every Friday and Top 3’s every 2 weeks on Friday.

REVIEW- Miss Peregrines home for peculiar children by Ransom Riggs

This is the first book i’ve completed in months… I know. It’s holidays and I shouldn’t be getting lazy. I bought this only a couple of weeks ago (I should probably read the ones I already have).

Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children

This book tells the life of a boy named Jacob Portman after the death of his grandfather who died under strange circumstances. Jacob tries to find everything about his grandfather’s past leading to what actually happened to him. This lead to a little welsh island where his grandfather grew up during the war and an abandoned orphanage where Jacob found everything that his grandfather explained to be true, the monsters, the children and Miss Peregrine.

This gripped first novel of Ransom Riggs lets you see the horrors of war and death, traveling back and forth from the present to the 1940’s which gives you a huge insight of what it must have been like living during the times of war.

I was actually quite hesitant to read this book at first, I never really liked the ‘horror’ genre but I decided to give this one a try and ended up loving it from start to end.

Back to the actual story. When Jacob first meets Emma Bloom you can just tell there is going to be a budding romance, this story keeps you on the edge from the start. At the times when they were introducing the peculiar children accompanied by pictures that the author had gathered was amazing. To match your imagination to a picture the author based the characters off of…

I’d have to say I didn’t like how they ended it, it didn’t really end. It’s like when you are watching the last episode of a series and they leave you on a cliffhanger, now it looks like I am going to have to read the second book!

I rate this: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 out of five stars

Top 3 Worst Books

I AM THE WORST PERSON OUT THERE

I am seriously the worst person in the world. I should seriously consider this blog as a real thing not something to chuck away after a month, it has really helped me so far. I have come a really long way with my writing as this month I am participating in Camp NaNoWriMo for the second time. Last year was my first year doing it… Plus I needed some motivation…

So let’s get on with it! Today I will be talking to you about the top three worst books that I have ever read. From both this century and from the one before us… where most iconic books such as Pride and Prejudice, Odyssey and To Kill A Mocking Bird.

1.Lord Of The Flies by William Goulding

51c78ppubXL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

Summary—-

[During an unnamed time of war, a plane carrying a group of British schoolboys is shot down over the Pacific. The pilot of the plane is killed, but many of the boys survive the crash and find themselves deserted on an uninhabited island, where they are alone without adult supervision.]

I’d have to say this is one of the worst books I’ve ever read. The top worst book I’ve ever read. Some people, however, have a different taste than to me but this is still my strong opinion. This book was given to us on our first day of year 10 and we were asked to read it, once he said the name I instantly laid my head on the desk and sighed. I was almost ready to slap my English teacher for saying he liked it but I guess the book was from his time so he would relate to it more and like it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It’s said to be a notable and timeless text which it sort of is… I mean, us kids these days cannot relate to books that we are not interested in nor can we read books that clearly are written in a ‘language’ that we don’t understand.

2. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Summary—-

[Bella Swan has always been a little bit different. Never one to run with the crowd, Bella never cared about fitting in with the trendy, plastic girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarried and Bella chooses to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she didn’t expect much of anything to change. But things do change when she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen.]

Its mega cheesyness just creeped me out. Edward… seriously? I dont get why some people don’t like people hating on this book. I must admit I had read it when I was around thirteen but looking back I see I was a young person would couldnt see around the things that were actually wrong in the book.

For example! When Bella turns up for her first day of school… guess what! She instantly becomes friends with people she just met and those people don’t even question who she is. I bet most of these people would go judging her heaps (IN THE REAL WORLD) but they don’t… strange town, strange people. Plus Bella is at the top of the stupidity poll… she actually WANTS to become a vampire… drink blood and become sparkly… who would want a life away from their parents forever and watch them die!?!?!?!?!?! And she’s fine and dandy with it all… I just don’t get it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

I’m being honest when I havent read a third worst book as really haven’t. So this is technically a Top 2 but anyway… Sorry everyone for being such a horrible blogger and I hope to see you around for more. If you’d like you can tell me your opinions of these books whether or not you like them, I will not take offense!
