Well there is not much to say abut me. I love coffee and books and if I can drink a fresh hot coffee while reading even better:)
I started to review a couple years ago and I still loving it. I love the book community and met many awesome people along the way. I'm looking forward to connect to even more of you awesome people out there and of course continue to discover more great books.

Rowan and Citra take opposite stances on the morality of the Scythedom, putting them at odds, in the second novel of the chilling New York Times bestselling series from Neal Shusterman, author of the Unwind dystology.
Rowan has gone rogue, and has taken it upon himself to put the Scythedom through a trial by fire. Literally. In the year since Winter Conclave, he has gone off-grid, and has been striking out against corrupt scythes—not only in MidMerica, but across the entire continent. He is a dark folk hero now—“Scythe Lucifer”—a vigilante taking down corrupt scythes in flames.
Citra, now a junior scythe under Scythe Curie, sees the corruption and wants to help change it from the inside out, but is thwarted at every turn, and threatened by the “new order” scythes. Realizing she cannot do this alone—or even with the help of Scythe Curie and Faraday, she does the unthinkable, and risks being “deadish” so she can communicate with the Thunderhead—the only being on earth wise enough to solve the dire problems of a perfect world. But will it help solve those problems, or simply watch as perfection goes into decline?
I really enjoyed the first book except it was a bit slow paced for my taste. However I did not have that problem with this book. No, not at all this book was fast paced, nonstop, epic journey with more plot twists I thought possible.
This books starts off almost a year where we left of, which I liked since it gave the characters plenty of time to grow into their “new” roles.
In the beginning of the book it is almost as if Rowan and Citra switched roles, their stands and morale of Scythedom. I wasn’t sure about Rowan at first but the more we earned about him and his motives and so on I really came back around loving him.
Citra, man I loved her so much in this book. I loved how she changed things but never really saw the impact she is having and how she slowly uses that to her advantage.
We also meet Tyger again and to be honest I really never care about him and really didn’t see his purpose beyond filling some pages but man o man was I wrong and I did not see that coming. Nope not in a million years.
We meet some new people along the way and one of them is Greyson and I really enjoyed him, his vie, his history and his overall purpose.
We also learn a lot more about the Scythedom and the Thunderhead, which was also very interesting. But of course we are left with more questions yet.
I’m really curios to know what the deal with Texas is, why are there certain spots like Texas where the rules differ.
Overall this book was insane and just kept shucking me over and over again with twists and turns.
The end though was crazy and I did not see that coming, some of it I thought about other I had no idea. I can’t wait to see how things play out in the next book.
I rate this book a full 5★
They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.
When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed.
Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed.
Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him.
And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she'll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.
2 ½ -3 ★
I had a hate-love relationship with this book. Well maybe not that drastic but close lol.
I really liked the idea of the book and it had me really intrigued, I liked the sassy snarky character and it was really easy to follow.
What I didn’t like was the insta lust/ love, not really love in the beginning but the lust was there for sure. That was not even the part that bothered me it was more the timing of said lust really was distracting at times. For an example:
He shot her in the back TWICE with arrows, just yanked out the arrows tied her back to the horse and dragged her through the snow for hours so hard that her arms came out of her sockets after she finally passes out from the pain hours later and wakes up and cant care for herself because of all the injuries and he needs to carry her to the toilet, all she can think about is how hard his chest it and how close his lips are to her.
There were a few more situations like that. Also some others were a bit awkward to read like he being an almighty higher being that is pretty much older than dirt and then he sits there and stares at her like a teenage boy seeing boobies for the first time and then starts awkwardly “suckling” on her nipple. SO yeah not sure if that was all supposed to be a bit funny but it really kind of felt awkward to read.
But then again it had a lot of funny moments in it, but also some dark and thought provoking moments that I really enjoyed.
Overall I ended it up liking it more than I thought I would but not loving it by far and some parts where just way of chart and overplayed.
This all might just me and I’m sure plenty of people can overlook some of the awkward stuff and will love it.
I rate it 2 ½ -3 ★
Round two done as well.
Again it was a lot more work than first thought and it was a bit more painful this time but I go it done. YAY .
Also since I had such bad side effects last time to the pain meds he didn't give me any and just said to do over the counter. Lets just say the night was a a tad more rough than last time.
Now Im feeling a bit better and yet way better than last week at this time :D
I might still be a bit offline more and not sure how much reading but overall I'm feeling okayish. Now a few weeks rest more than first thought since have more healing to do than first thought but at least its rest .
Thank you everyone for the well wishes :D that means a lot
Tomorrow is the day for round two of oral surgery. Tis time the other side.
Not looking forward to it but what can I do lol.
Just hope it will go better tomorrow and afterwards, last time I had super bad side effects for the pain meds, they gave me and couldn't take them. Plus I was throwing up for like 14 hrs straight the next day and dizziness and all kinds of fun ..... that was worse than the pain I think .
