Book Blurb 

When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.


Review

Magic that never ends.

Watched the movie? NOW read the Original Screenplay!! 

Image result for fantastic beast and where to find them  gif

Remembered the day I went to watch Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them for the first time at the cinema with my friends a week or two ago, I was nearly sobbing when the main titles of the soundtrack were played and it felt so good to be back on this magical journey, the Wizarding World, where everything was just so Magical!

As before reading the screenplay, I re-watched the movie for the second time and finished reading the book almost in less than 24 hours. To my preference, the screenplay actually contains a 90% similarity with the film but at the same time having a 10% in detail descriptions of footage and also character’s emotions, some plot points that were more detaily written in, that we audience were unable to catch throughout the film. By reading the script, it shows how detail it was. Everything was so hilarious, stunning and nicely assembled, after all it was written by the Queen of Fantasy herself.

Talking about the casting, they were all a perfect fit to the characters (Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander made my heart melt) and those fantastic creatures were so adorable (LOVE them all)! Nonetheless, I have to admit of a plot twist that I, myself never saw it coming as well as one of themselves (YOU KNOW WHO) – *Tsk, Tsk* Did anyone of you have just been tricked by me on reading ‘YOU KNOW WHO’ and taught of Voldy?

Moreover, this is also my very first time reading an Original Screenplay and it was so much fun! I enjoyed it SO. MUCH. The glossary of film terms that were attached in the book really gives a good guide of the abbreviation and film terms written in the screenplay.

Nevertheless, news about oncoming sequels that we not only going to have one film of Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them but FIVE!! You hear me, there will be FIVE movies in total!! And I am SO. EXCITED. to see where does this journey continues!! (Are we going to see Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?)

For the love of movie soundtracks (this one is gold at heart), going to leave this one here. Enjoy.

Book Blurb

Two households. One secret that will change everything.

I was raised to believe his family was nothing but trash.
I was raised to believe her family was the root of all evil.

I sent his brother to prison.
I should hate her for what she did.

I’ve never fought a day in my life.
I’ve fought every day of my life.

I need him to help me find answers.
I need her to set the record straight.

I should stay away from him.
I should walk away from her.

But I can’t.
But I can’t.


Review

Trust. Love. Courage. 

A modern Romeo & Juliet twist, intense politics and flashbacks that will leave you awestruck with emotions!

| “Some people still like to read actual book, you know,” I mutter through gritted teeth. You insult my library book and the claws come out. So much for best laid plans” |

Wow! The cover of All of the Lights gave me an impression that I taught this book was just going to be another typical contemporary love story but NO, it was way much more than I expected (never underestimate the book by its cover). Everything was so so so INTENSE from the start until its ending! All of the Lights is the first book that I’ve read by K. Ryan and it did not disappoint me. This book was written in two voices, Rae and Jack.

| “For the love of Stefani Germanotta, tell the damn truth” |

I hereby repeat myself, is not just a typical romance novel, there were so many things happening at once and it really intrigued also surprised me. From suspense to flashbacks to complex and entangled family relationships to twist and turns like you are actually putting yourself in the shoes in the experience to expect the unexpected. Believe me, things went down so fast that even myself have forgotten to breath! Technically, the plot twist literally got me thrashing and scowling in front of my e-reader as well left me jaw-dropped and gaping for quite a few seconds before proceeding to the next few pages and chapters ahead.

On character wise, I love the development of both the main duo throughout the story (Rae and Jack) also some of the minor characters like Sean, Bennett and Luciana (Lucy). Bonus! One of the funny parts that came to me while I was reading, that I have always got Brennan and Bennett’s names confused and accidentally mixed them up (both of their names were too close especially when you are reading an e-reader for too long). 

Nonetheless,the small little parts of song lyrics in this book were so beautiful and hilarious (I LOVE IT) and I have even sang them while reading it. Bonus Again! I have even sang “I Hate U I Love U” by Gnash (feat. Olivia O’Brien) during one of the parts of the book that I saw fit. (83% of the book) 

| “There are darkness in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.” |

Overall, this book was just SOOOOO FANTASTIC and I LOVE it so much! Not to mention, when I was at 90% of this book, my heartbeat was racing so fast and I was at the edge of my seat plus not leaving my eyes off from my e-reader. The writing was smooth as well as the pace was just even and nicely laid. If you want to diverse into something new for contemporary romance, this book is definitely a recommended read! 

I received an eARC copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Crown’s Game || Book Review

Publisher: Balzer + Bray

Publication Date: May 17th 2016

Pages/ Format: 416, (Paperback Edition)

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Historical Fiction 

My Rating: ★★★★ 


Book Blurb

Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the tsar needs a powerful enchanter by his side.

And so he initiates the Crown’s Game, an ancient duel of magical skill—the greatest test an enchanter will ever know. The victor becomes the Imperial Enchanter and the tsar’s most respected adviser. The defeated is sentenced to death.

Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to show off her talent in the grand capital of Saint Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter—even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has?

For Nikolai, an orphan, the Crown’s Game is the chance of a lifetime. But his deadly opponent is a force to be reckoned with—beautiful, whip-smart, imaginative—and he can’t stop thinking about her.

And when Pasha, Nikolai’s best friend and heir to the throne, also starts to fall for the mysterious enchantress, Nikolai must defeat the girl they both love…or be killed himself.

As long-buried secrets emerge, threatening the future of the empire, it becomes dangerously clear—the Crown’s Game is not one to lose.


Review

Tsars and magic. Imagine and Believe. 

The Crown’s Game meets Red Queen meets The Hunger Games.

| “A smile bloomed across Vika’s face. “A little peril has never stopped me.” |

The Crown’s Game has been one of my anticipated reads of 2016 this fall, I was totally hooked up by the cover and I knew I need to read this book ASAP! Also, it was one of my first read about Russia! Everything in this book was blended in so well, not to mention how Evelyn had added the touched of magic in her stories as well as the landscapes of Russia was so breathtaking, like it was literally brought to life in front of me! Ah, Splendid touch! 

|Thinking can be a perilous sport.|

Moreover, The Crown’s Game was a really fast paced read for me and this book itself was told in several character perspectives (tho, Vika’s and Nikolai’s perspective were the main ones), but I would love to see more character development on some of the minor characters in the next one.

So basically, this book is about two enchanters would need to fight against each together in an ancient duel of magical skills to become Russia’s Imperial Enchanter and the tsar’s most respected adviser. The one who succeed gets the place and the one who is defeated will be sentenced to death. Yikes! It totally gives me the mix of Red Queen and The Hunger Games vibe here, and one vital moved may doomed either of them.   

| “She wanted again to hold on to him, and have him hold on to her, so they could whirl together through the cosmos like galaxies that could not—and would not—be confined.” |

Love triangle coming through!

Well, I don’t really mind reading books with love triangles even though I know it will torn me apart and left me broken in pieces *coughs, coughs*, Sarah’s books. And, the romance in this book was quite an okay one but the friendship between one of the 3 main characters were nicely written but it was a little rough in some of the chapters and things happened. 

| “Imagine, and it shall be. There are no limits.⁠⁠⁠⁠” |

Alas, the last few chapters were somehow caught up with peak tensions (I was like, the suspense is hitting me hard)! And the ending got me literally staggered (I was like turning the pages and talking to myself, ‘That’s it? Really? No, this can’t be!?’) and it made me wanted to crave for more! *I need the next book, pretty please?* Well that’s all I can say here, I hope the next book will contain more action pack scenes and more character development too. Can’t wait for The Crown’s Fate!

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

Title: A Court of Mist and Fury (ACOTAR #2)

Author: Sarah J. Maas 

Publisher: Bloomsbury Childrens Books

Publication Date: May 3rd 2016

Pages/ Format: 624, (UK Paperback Edition)

Genres: New Adult, Fantasy, Romance

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Book Blurb 

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.


Review 

Madness. Thrilled. Shocked. Humor. Sadness. Frustration. Anger. Emotional Ride. Flawless. 

I JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH WITH IT… NEVER!

MY NEW TAG LINE
ENJOYED ACOMAF = BROKE ME INTO A THOUSAND (AND MORE) SHATTERED PIECES…

| “To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.” Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.” |

Holy trinket! Sarah has done it again! I’m never tired of reading Sarah’s works, never in a billion years. This book has literally made me into a huge pile of a mess and I have never stop thinking about it after finishing the last bit/ inch of this book! 

Image result for emotional gif

A Court of Mist and Fury picks up where A Court of Thorns and Roses has left off. And yes, it totally picks up beautifully and wreaks you in pieces at the end. (Will not talk much about what is happening at the end of this book because you will need to read it and find out, I will leave that as your mission.)

|“There are good days and hard days for me—even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”|

So the trail picks up everything after the wreckage Under the Mountain in ACOTAR and my love for The Lord of the Spring Court had a 180 twist (Tamlin) as well a 180 twist falling in love with the The Lord of the Night Court (Rhysand). Everything went down so fast (S*** really went down) and I was literally holding my breath whenever I turn a page! Inferno Intensity!

| “I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal. I was a survivor, and I was strong. I would not be weak, or helpless again. I would not, could not be broken. Tamed.” |

Not to mention, we get to see and discover more of the Night Court as well as the Summer Court. Velaris was light and heaven of starlight and the vivid scenery that I have imagined it in my head was too beautiful that I think I don’t even have the words to described them here. And we got to see the Squad, Rhysand’s Inner Circle. (Yikes, I think I need to stop to prevent furthermore spoilers.) And you’ll need to read and find out what Hybern is yielding right now, *whispers* something deadly, no doubt. 

| “He thinks he’ll be remembered as the villain in the story. But I forgot to tell him that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key. He was the one who let me out.” |

Nevertheless, this book made me into a huge pile of a crying mess and yelping with heart attacks. Chapter 54 literally broke me apart and I was mended in the next chapter (Holy Grail! Those steamy and smutty scenes are holy steamy!) and Sarah broke me again in Part 3 of the book. Again… 

Definitely a recommended read but not suitable for young readers.
A Reread for this book is a Must!

Book Blurb 

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.


Review 

Intense. Gripping. Stunning. Danger. Life and Death. 

A Court of Thorns and Roses (ACOTAR) has been one of my anticipated reads of all time since it was published and I have finally got the chance to read it, it had literally sat on my shelf, squealing frantically and calling for me to read it. And… HOLY CRAP, what have I just read?!

| “I found him carefully studying me, his lips in a thin line. “Has anyone ever taken care of you?” he asked quietly. “No.” I’d long since stopped feeling sorry for myself about it.” |

A Court and Thorns and Roses is somehow a retelling in a mixture of folklore and fairy tales. From what I have heard, it is a Beauty and the Beast retelling, but for me, is a mixture of Beauty and the Beast, Aurora, Cinderella and more I suppose? A little of Rapunzel and Little Red Ridding Hood? Though the mixed of it was just so wonderful and I really enjoyed it! 

| “I was as unburdened as a piece of dandelion fluff, and he was the wind that stirred me about the world.” |

The story is set foot in the world of Prythian with 7 Courts and alongside with the Mortal Lands as well another realm across the sea named Hybern. It all started on the journey of a young huntress named Feyre who killed a wolf in the woods at her village (a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution) and then she got dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends. Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

Image result for what have I just read gif

| “I love you,’ he whispered, and kissed my brow. ‘Thorns and all.” | 

To be honest, this book got me started slow a little (it did drag me from the beginning but I gave it a chance, and it turned out pretty well to my liking although some of the parts got me wondered and guessed if I was right) but it did not disappoint me at the end, instead it made me wanted to crave for more, I need the next book in my hands right now.

| “Be glad of your human heart, Feyre. Pity those who don’t feel anything at all.” |

This book literally floods with handsome Fae Lords and strong protagonist and action pack (vital and dangerous trials), as well included heartbreaking and aching stories! Sarah literally laid out this fantasy world of hers in such a breathtaking and beautiful way, to be honest some of the parts even got me tear up and sobbing in a corner. Not to mention, this book also went all smutty and steamy at some points, so, brace yourself! 

Definitely recommended read but not suitable for young readers.

#PotterheadJuly – How Harry Potter Have Shaped My Life & More

potterheadjuly-gryffindor

Banner Credits to Aentee

Hello Everyone!

I have joined the #PotterheadJuly Blog Post Festival and I am here to share my journey of how Harry Potter have shaped my life and more. This journey is truly magical and tremendously wonderful! *Inserts HP theme song*

tumblr_static_1t3mfz9xt3r4wsckc80g0gc0c

Right from the start, Harry Potter was really the main book series (movies) that have brought me into my reading journey. (I have started reading since young around the age of 3-4, it was my mum who really shaped up the roots of my reading life and it has grown up with me until now that I have made reading my life! Love You, Mum ❤

daniel-radcliffe-jk-rowling-pottermore-grown-up-harry-potter-update.gif

Remembered once my mum told me about I was afraid to watch the first movie of Harry Potter (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) most probably I was too young and really cannot understand much about what was going on. Particularly,  I was only 3 when the first movie came out, and that probably just scared me, how can a 3-year-old kid know that much of the world yet, lol)

Then, years after when I have grown and finally knew as well as discovered what is Harry Potter is all about. I know it has been trending all around the world but it got super trendy when I was at primary school. That got me literally and it totally changed my life, Forever. I was totally hooked onto Harry Potter from the books to screen (To be honest, I have not read all the Harry Potter books until now, have only read up to the Prisoner of Azkaban but I have watched all the movies, I know books are truly amazing much more compared to the movies, I totally agree on that point)

P/S Please don’t hate me.

24e41050-3014-0133-09dc-0e76e5725d9d

I remember when I started watching the movies I was so pumped and excited and it did not scare me at all except some of the parts which the screen grew darker, but it was amazing. I even watched the movies until late night and even started to get all the lines in my head and started saying them and acting them out on myself and I even made some fun little short films out of it with my sister (I’m so proud that I have influenced her to read and watch Harry Potter with me and we both like it so much)

1446581737-world-without-harry-potter-gifs-magic

After the last movie was premiered  on screen, Pottermore was created (A magical platform where Potterheads can discover more about the magical world, but to be honest the magical world has already been discovered since the day it was created, published and print on those beautiful and gorgeous covers, but Pottermore made the Fandom grew stronger and more global wise around the world)

Pottermore was originally a platform to play and discover but it has made some changes recently but I am still so happy that I have been sorted into Gryffindor house (Brave, courageous, chivalrous, daring and bold) of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft School and Wizardry. Furthermore, Pottermore has launched a new school that was named Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and I was being sorted into Pukwudgie house (Represents the heart and Favours healers)

I AM SO HAPPY ABOUT BOTH OF THE SORTING!!! ❤

YouTube video credits to Pottermore

I am so lucky and grateful that I have both family and friends sharing and talking about HP with me. Nonetheless, HP really can make us bring a conversation less awkward or even starting up one.

Also, I can’t wait for Harry Potter and the Curse Child as well as Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them! HP lives on Forever! HP is Life and Always will be! Always.

tumblr_myxeyfQsx91rp1voro5_500

Thank You So Much J. K. Rowling (Our One and Only Queen of Fantasy and Magic) for bringing us this magical, wonderful world as well as a fantastic childhood and life that we live in and on FOREVER (I have even dreamt about them in my dreams)! No words can describe how thankful we are!

P/S I’m finally back from my long Blog Hiatus! Am ready to write more book reviews soon! Happy PotterheadJuly Everyone!
