Review: The Last Wish of Sasha Cade

Hey guys! I’m super behind on reviews so I decided to do this for and ARC that I read in September?? October?? Anyway I should have done this review a long time ago.

 


REVIEW OF THE LAST WISH OF SASHA CADE BY CHEYANNE YOUNG

34802290 (1)The day Raquel has been dreading for months has finally arrived. Sasha, her best friend in the whole world — the best friend in the whole world — has died of cancer. Raquel can’t imagine life without her. She’s overwhelmed and brokenhearted. And then a letter from Sasha arrives. Has she somehow found a way to communicate from the afterlife? In fact, Sasha has planned an elaborate scavenger hunt for Raquel, and when she follows the instructions to return to Sasha’s grave, a mysterious stranger with striking eyes is waiting for her. There’s a secret attached to this boy who only Sasha—and now Raquel—knows. This boy, Elijah, might be just what Raquel needs to move on from her terrible loss. But can Raquel remain true to herself while also honoring her friend’s final wish?


The Last Wish of Sasha Cade 3🌟

This was one of my first e-arcs to receive, It came out during the autumn and i should have really done this review before. I enjoyed this book, it was cute. i have to say this is a book with great platonic friendship. What i found very interesting about this book was the plot and how most books about grief are mostly about handling with it but this one was so sweet.


DISLIKES:

I have to say though I have a few dislikes. First thing was the romance in this story, honestly it felt forced and honestly not needed. It was personally to clichee and I didn’t enjoy the whole “Bad Boy” and “Goody Too Shoes”. The other fact was that I sometimes felt that the author “romanticized” Sasha death. It was almost like the “love relationship” (I don’t want to spoil) fixed everything, again this was for some moments in the book not everything.


CHARACTERS:

Honestly my favourite character was Sasha you didn’t really meet her personally but by everything  she was doing and what she was portraying you kinda felt like you knew her. I didn’t like Raquel much but that’s just a personal opinion


Well that concluded my review also sorry it’s so short, also ive been inactive for a long time because I had a lot of things going on and personally couldn’t keep up with the pressure that I would put on myself but I’m slowly coming back.

Also thankyou so much to NetGalley and KCP Loft/Kids Can Press for sending me a e-copy.

Happy Reading

Blogoween#11 ( Halloween colours)

Halloween is tomorrow. So I’m gonna make my own prompt for today cause I’m too lazy to look for another one. I think that there is a lot of controversy about which are really the “Halloween colours”. Some people say its Orange, Black, Purple, Red, White and even Green. The first prompt that I did for blogoween was autumn covers so I thought I’d round it off by making a Halloween colour/cover post.


 

1. Green

In Halloween the colour green is associated with monsters, slime and ghouls stuff in general.

Those are some of my favourite green covers and books.


 

2. Red

I feel like red is mostly associated with blood and vampires.

I love all of these covers and they are some of my favourite books so I 100% recommend.


 

3. Orange

Honestly I have no idea why this is a Halloween colour, oh maybe pumpkins. But it’s always been put with halloween.

I just finished Far from the tree and its amazing and I’m completely obsessed with the cover.


 

4. Purple

I always found that purple was always a witchy colour, you know? Like super mysterious

51vb0N43UwL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_  9781408855713  81E7BnpXpZL

I had to include Harry Potter.


 

5. Black

Black like the darkness and Death…thats morbid.

I mean technically City of Ghost is grey-ish but whatever.


 

Well that’s it, I chose not to do white cause there aren’t a lot of white books, but I’m guessing that the white came from ghosts.

What is your favourite Halloween colour?

Out of all of these which cover is your favourite?

Blogoween #10 (Halloween In A Fictional World)

Hey people!! Blogoween is almost over,  and It’s been really fun (a bit stressful at time) but overall fun. Todays prompt or yesterdays (im not sure) is which Fictional World you would want to spend Halloween in.


 

Ok so I’m gonna give the most used answer (probably) and…The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!

 

Image result for halloween harry potter gif

I mean that looks pretty cool right? I feel like Hogwarts is the #1 place to spend Halloween.

  1. It’s a castle!!
  2. There are actually ghost
  3. umm…YoU’rE a WIZARD
  4. The decorations
  5. The feast

Thats sounds pretty good if you ask me. I can’t think of any other fantasy worlds that would be really cool to be during Halloween, but I’ve been taking a break from fantasy and reading more mystery and contemporaries reads.


So I havent been able to do any reading updates lately so I thought of doing a small one.


Currently reading

1.Dear Evan Hansen

I started this book about 3 days ago, and it’s really good so far. I’m only 80 pages in so we’ll see how it turns out.

2.Furyborn

I was able to get my hands on an e-arc of it, because I didn’t own the book and I wanted to read it. Its amazing so far, I wasn’t so invested at first but in the spam of one chapter to another, I became invested.


Well that’s it for my mini reading update

What are you currently reading?

Are you excited for Halloween?

Are you dressing up for Halloween?

Which fictional world would you want to be in for Halloween night?

Happy Reading

Blogoween #6 (Shapeshifter)

via Shapeshifter

Yayy! It’s almost Halloween and if you have seen my post you’ll know that I love Halloween, I might be my favourite holiday. The best part of Halloween is costumes and that’s what this post is all about, basically you have to let me know of some characters that you would like to dress up as.


 

  1. NEWT SCAMANDER

Newt-Meeting-Harry-1200x675

I love Newt Scamander he is adorable and he’s my favourite character in Fantastic Beast, I think being newt is a super cool costume, its kinda hard to pull off (because of the coat) but an awesome costume. it’s a bit harder to do 

 


 

2. KELL MARESH

ADSOM_CE_Kell_Maresh_by_Lesya

 

I feel like this could be pretty simple, I put this on here because I love his coat, I mean wouldn’t be awesome that you had 1 coat the could book like 100? You would most probably need red hair which I don’t have  but you could just get a wig.

 

 

 


 

3. KATNISS EVERDEEN

Hunger-Games-Movie-Katniss-Everdeen-Jacket-1-450x600

This is a pretty easy costume, you just wear leather and a black shirt/pants, of course the hard part of this costume is the bow but you could most probably find one at a Halloween store, and of course you can’t forget the classic mocking jay pin.

 

 

 

 


 

Well I can’t think of any other ones so that’s all for today,

Do you dress up for Halloween?

What are you’re favourite bookish costumes?

Happy Reading

Blogoween#4 (Book Spine Spells)

Hey Guys I have been super busy lately but I finally have the time to blog, so sadly I currently not at home so I don’t have my bookshelves so I can’t use my books for this prompt  but I’m gonna try my best. Today’s prompt is Book Spine Spells so in conclusion  you have to stack up your books in an order that allow the titles to create a poem. but you can only use horror/Halloween themed books. I’m not the best at poetry but I’m I’ll do my best.


  1. The shadows that lurk in the tree

35EF28C6-0211-4AAF-8074-1CFCB8B03B57

 

the darkest minds

are in a gathering of shadows

far from the tree

of nevernight

2. The Circus of fire

 

the night circus

rises of fire

to this savage song

of the rebel waves

 

 


those are my poems, and I know that they are not all Halloween themed but I tried my best, also as a reading update I’m currently read the Lady’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, this Mortal Coil and a Very Large Expanse of Sea. I’m loving both The Lady’s guide…and AVLEOS, I’m enjoying This Mortal Coil, I want to see where it goes.

Well thats it! Hope you enjoyed my mediocre poetry and

Have You read any of the books?

If you did the challenge which books did you use?

Happy Reading

Review: What If Its Us

Hey guys so today im gonna be doing a review of what if its us by  Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. I was giving an e-ARC of this book on Edelweiss.


WHAT IF ITS US-by BECKY ALBERTALLI and ADAM SILVERA

 

download (14).jpeg

Before I get into it, I just wanted to talk a little bit about the authors. I read They Both Die In the End last year and loved it (4/5). The only reason i didnt give it 5/5 was because there were two many POVs and it dragged on abit. but other than that I love his writing. I read Simon vrs The Homo Sapiens Agenda and Leah on the offbeat. earlier this year and LOVED them Simon-(5/5) and Leah-(4/5) I fell in love  with becky’s writing and all her HP refences. So yeah before I get off topic, This was of my most anticipated releases because I love both authors.

 


 What If Its Us – 4🌟

This book was super adorable. Its everything you expect it to be. Knowing Adam Silvera I was super scared that it would crush my heart in am million pieces, but it only shattered in half so it’s not that bad. I loved all the Harry Potter refencees ad DEH and Hamilton references. (I get so excited when books have references lol)

I loved the romance between Ben and Arthur (two main protagonist).  I felt that Adam’s and Becky’s writing styles just worked so well together. Also can we talked about that DIVERSITY. I love when books include LGBTQ+ or DIVERSITY (which this book has). Arthur was jewish and had ADHD, and Ben was Puerto Rican and also was not-rich. Sometimes I have noticed that in books everyone is high-middle class (!!THIS IS NOT EVERY BOOK, JUST A FEW THAT I HAVE NOTICED) and its fine cause authors write what they know , but I was very happy see that. In summary this book was super cute.


DISLIKES: I did give this book a 4/5🌟 so I’m just gonna say why.

I felt that this book was a bit predictable. So yes it was a love story but I think that from the begging you could already tell how it ended. It did you keep always on your toes and didn’t necessarily have moments that it dragged on. But if you’re a reader that doesn’t like predictable books than this one is a bit but its still awesome.

I didn’t like the ending. Ok so yes Adam Silvera co-wrote this book so there is no happy ending. But I felt that the ending was heart-breaking but in a good way. but then the epilogue ruined it….I felt that the ending was like “the end of an era” type ending and the epilogue just like started a new era even though there isn’t a 2nd book. Anyway I’m very bad at explaining it so just read it and you’ll hopefully get what I’m saying.


CHARACTERS: I’m just gonna talk about the characters real quick

I love arthur. Arthur is my precious no-chill cinnamon roll. I love how he is obseesed with Hamilton and how nerdy he is. He was so real-like, lol im horrible at this. Honestly he just reminds me so much of me. I have zero chill and he was just so adorable.

Ben: He wasn’t my fav but still I love how the they both nerds. Ill leave it to that cause I don’t want too spoil.

I also really liked Ben friends they were hilarious.


Well that concludes my review and thank you for sticking with me. I think in the end I give it a 4.5🌟
