WRAP-UP (#5): MAY & JUNE 2016

After the reading debacle that was April, May wasn't that bad, was it? 

Spring, you know? You have your beautiful flowers, your annoying as all hell alergies, a too fucking hot weather that makes you think that you're gonna die when summer is in it's full force and a funcioning brain that finally decides to know how to read. 

Yeah... And then, June came. And it was shity again.

Anyway, what have you been reading? As always, tell me in the comments!


1. The Cabin in the Woods by Tim Lebbon (reread)

"Yeah, uh, I had to dismember that guy with a trowel. What have you been up to?"

The Cabin in the Woods by Tim Lebbon

★★★★☆ 3.75/5

I didn't love it as much this second time around but I love the movie and this book is almost exactly the same.

Full review here.

Recommended to: 

Horror buffs that like a little bit of humor between the gore in their stories, parodic characters and big arcane companies with scary top-secret missions.

2. Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles #4.5) by Marissa Meyer

"That mechanic was going to change everything."

Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles #4.5) by Marissa Meyer

★★★★★ 5/5

Cry. Cry. Cry. It's finally over for this series and it's been an epic ride. This amazing collection of novellas is so fan-fucking-tastic that I wanna marry it. 

Recommended to: 

Bigger than life cyborgs, androids with huge personalities, rebel spaceship captains, extraterrestial princesses and people in general capable of reading.

3. The Ghost of Graylock by Dan Poblocki

"We ask our brain to stop worrying, stop obsessing, stop dreaming the same scary dreams again and again. But our brain rarely takes requests."

The Ghost of Graylock by Dan Poblocki

★★★★☆ 4/5

It was pretty nice, but not amazing. It felt a little bit too juvenile for me, even though it was quite creepy in some parts.

Recommended to:

People with Goosebumps' melancholia and ghost stories' fans that aren't prepared for something too scary.

4. Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers

"I was perfect... and then I wasn't."

Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers

★★★★☆ 4.5/5

The main character is an angry super-beyotch, but you cannot help to be sympathetic towards her, even though she probably doesn't deserve it. That's what makes great and complex characters.

Recommended to: 

Sarcastic bitches that don't give a damn what other people think about them. Or that give too many damns.

5. Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers

"I spot a fly floating on the surface of the water, its little legs pumping madly as it fights to keep itself afloat. I know that feeling."

Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers

★★★★☆ 4.5/5

God, these people are evil. I had my fair share of mean bitches and douche canoes in highschool, but oh Jesus, this crowd is just psychotic. Love it.

Recommended to: 

Involuntarily reformed mean girls with evil friends kicked out straight from hell that love a little bit too much teenage drama.


1. Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas

"But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years."

★★★★ 5/5

If you're reading this series I don't have to tell you how fantabulous it is, if you aren't... Well, I don't event want to awknowledge you. Joking. But come on...

Recommended to: 

Badass bitches and hardcore motherfuckers. That's it.

2. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

"Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life."

★★★★☆ 3.75/5

I thought it was going to be a story where the people who no one cares about end up saving the day. It was not. It was a lot of (relatively realistic) teen drama bulshit. But pretty entertaining, nonetheless.

Recommended to: 

The Zeppos, the sidekicks, the Robins to every Batman, the Hawks to every other The Avengers character ever to exist. The ones who are a little bit "meh".

3. Cruel Crown (Red Queen #0.1-0.2) by Victoria Aveyard

"There is nothing so terrible as a story untold."

★★★★☆ 4.5/5

I really like Farley's character and I was very interested in learling more about Queen Coriane's backstory, and although it was a pretty great book, it didn't amaze me as much I expected. I think it could have gone deeper in these characters' lives and motivations, but that's life.

Recommended to: 

The rebels. It doesn't matter if they're Silver or Red. Or multicolored.
