I don’t know why I have this tendency to read books that destroy me. I need help.
Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider.
Why am I like this? Why is Robyn so cruel, first of all?
So pretty much you get to love the main characters (Sadie and Lane). They’re awesome and they have a special connection that you can’t help but love.
Too bad they both have tuberculosis that is immune to any drug. The good thing is that there is a solution in the end. The bad thing is that not everybody can make it.
And this gives you such a bad vibe and your feelings pretty much go with the flow when you see them how strong they are and how they cope with it so well!
I love original ideas and people that like to do stuff in a different way and that describes miss Sadie pretty much. You get to love her and her mind.
You get to love it so much that you may end up yelling “NOOOO” and slam your book (or kindle in my case) and take a break and wipe the tears in your eyes. I hoped for a happy ending. SADIE DESERVED BETTER THO! I thought she would get better from that risky cure she took and she might make it another 2 weeks until the legit vaccines are coming in and everybody has a chance to live.
Lane was awesome. I loved how he wasn’t a drama queen after she died and it broke my heart just by reading that he imagined her in the line for the vaccine or he imagined helping her pack for leaving…
That’s just sad.
It was awesome. But horrific. But awesome. I loved it.
Alright I guess I don’t need any special introduction for this after you’ve read the title since it’s been everywhere and suddenly everyone wants It. I’m looking at you, weird psychotic clown lovers.
If you’re in the mood for a long good read, try It. Hehe. No, seriously, I’ve read a long Stephen King book before (like 800 pages) and it was really good (11/22/63). This time, I really wanted to skip the movie and read the book before I actually watch it tho I was pretty scared to watch it so I wait for it to come on DVD.
Stephen King’s It is over 1000 pages long and every page is awesome. I recommended it to every friend I talked to about it.
I find horror a difficult genre. If I would have to write a horror book I don’t know if I could do it. It’s hard to write something to actually creep out the reader but I can vote this one as the first book that gave me the creeps. I was literally mouthing “man that’s creepy” when reading a few scenes so get ready for some crazy stuff. I question King’s sanity.
BUT THE KIDS MAN! THOSE KIDS ARE THE COOLEST KIDS IN LITERATURE. I loved them as a group and individually too but when they were together they just made me think of the gang in Stranger Things. I’m glad Finn Wolfhard actually plays in both of them. He fits perfectly.
I loved the turtle idea that protects them and I loved their ambition to get rid of Pennywise once and for all.
I really hope the movie is good because the one from the ’90s was extremely lame and I don’t wanna think about it again.
Anyways, if you think about reading it, I can only say YYYEEESSSSS. 100% recommended.
I think it’s time to focus on some poetry this time. Contemporary poetry. I chose Love and Misadventures by Leav Lang because the cover is absolutely adorable, I mean look at this:
I love poetry but contemporary poetry is my favorite and I always devour the poems. This book sent Lang Leav to a special place in my heart and I can’t wait to read some more but I have to take it slow cause I don’t wanna read all of them in a single day lol.
I’ve read many bad reviews about this one and I sincerely don’t get it. I know it’s not your typical shakespearian and sophisticated play of words but it really does its job, it makes you feel things. It sends you on a rollercoaster and it’s full of emotions. It’s so crazy relatable to a lot of us, it was an amazing read.
No it doesn’t have complex poems but I don’t think you need complexity when you know how to write and what to say and the author nailed it. The words are real and raw from the heart. No time to pretend.
Jimi Hendrix: The Man, The Magic, The Truth, Sharon Lawrence.
Rating: 5/5 stars.
I’m amazed by how close to his life I actually got through Sharon. I actually appreciate him more than I did before because of how hard he worked and because of all his sorrow during his childhood.
The only part that I wanted to skip but I read anyways was the one with his estate which I’m not interested in.
I’m a really huge fan of Hendrix and I love how unique his style and music is, you can recognize his guitar so easily, he is the one that stands out in a crowd and the one that everyone loves. You can see from his performances his passion for music and his love for his guitar. He’s always sending positive vibes to the crowd in front of him. I shed some tears when I reached the part about his death, I felt emotional when reading about his hard work and failures and imagining him struggling to pursue his dream, I felt everything about this book.
