Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson (The Final Empire)

This has taken me long time to do thanks to my computer being a pain. However I got all the pictures and uploaded so yeah. These are some of my completed trilogy that I haven’t even touched. Anyone has these problem because it is something I want to fix. Any hints?
Okay let me be honest on the fact that I have multiply currently reading books. However currently am trying to get through Uprooted by Naomi Novik since I already got halfway. Now am setting a goal on finishing it this weekend for the simply fact I haven’t finished a book yet. Plus I don’t have to work so lazy weekend here I come.
Okay to be honest I had to look what polarizing means also which books count for it. And this is what I came up with and hope you enjoy.
50 Shades Series by E.L. James: Lot of people give this series a lot of hate, but I can’t help but love it. I get that its not the best thing written or the concept people can’t get behind. Yet this series is a totally guilty pleasure for me that I wont apologize for.
How to Love by Katie Cotugno: This is a your going to either like it or dislike it. I was the first one. This was just a sweet contemporary that I enjoyed and glad I read.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: I read this series before it got really popular and I remember loving it. I probably couldn’t read it again without cringing however I’ll always have that first time.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: It took me a bit to get into the book itself but dang when I did I loved it. This book made a rare thing happen and I cried which will keep this book special to me.
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins: I didn’t like this book which sucks because the concept should have made me like it. However the main character Harper was not my favorite and her decisions ruined it.
So I did four loves and one dislike and its all fun. Let me know what you think.
topic: ten underrated/hidden gem books I’ve read in the past year or so
the distance between us by Kasie West: I love all her books and this was the first book of hers I read. This is a cute contemporary that you can finish in one sitting.
Heist Society<heist society#1> by Ally Carter: You should read this if you like heist books with teens. I just loved this trilogy and makes my heart full when thinking about it.
Under the Never Sky<under the never sky#1> by Veronica Rossi: Just read for it has plenty for everyone to at least read the first book.
The Iron King<the iron fey#1> by Julie Kagawa: A fey series that I read super fast yet I don’t hear anyone else talk about. I haven’t read the spinoff yet and just want to reread them all.
Graceling <graceling realms> by Kristin Cashore: this book was absolute necessary if you enjoy fantasy books. These is a pretty chunky book that has plenty to keep you entertained.
Unearthly<unearthly #1> by Cynthia Hand: has my favorite couple in it and has a cute story along with it. More people should give this book a chance. Especially if you like angel books with a hate to love relationship.
Poison Study<study #1> by Maria V. Snyder: This book has grown a bit, but still think that more people should read this book. It has magic, mystery, assassins, and again my favorite troupe.
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton: Yes this is a classic yet its the only one I’ve read multiply times. I love Ponyboy his brothers and the other boys he hangout with. They are just a bunch of boys looking out for each other.
Incarnate <newsouls#1> by Jodi Meadows: this trilogy has some beautiful covers and such a good storyline which I believe more people should give a chance.
Angelfall <Penryn & the End of Days #1> by Susan Ee: I’ve only read the first book of this trilogy and it took me by surprise how much I enjoyed it. My favorite troupe was in it which is why I recommend it to those who like the hate turned respect relationship.
So there you have it. All these books I’ve loved and don’t really hear many people talk about. So please try these out because all books deserve a chance.
I really enjoy Jennifer L. Armentrout books and her newest book didn’t disappoint. We are introduced to Mallory “Mouse” Dodge who grew up in a foster home where keeping her mouth shut was the way to survive. Now years later getting out of that situation and adapted by nice people she’s learned to move on. In that process Mallory wants to go from homeschooling to public school. Which is new experience and unexpected to find his foster friend Rider Stark.
I really like Mallory because she been through a lot as a kid and wants to try to move on. Which she does slowly by going to public school for the first time. By going to public speaking class though she doesnt like to talk in front of people. Baby steps is the name of the game and I enjoyed watching Mallory making them.
Rider is the bad boy who took being in the same situation a little differently. He doesn’t let anyone in really though he will be there when his friends need him. Also his home life has changed to a t good home even if he doesn’t call it home. When they meet up again in class first there is shock of course. They haven’t seen each other since they were kids. Then Rider’s is little protective of Mallory which doesn’t help his girlfriend from liking Malory at all.
Speaking of side characters.
I loved the brothers Hector and Jayden. Especially Jayden he was Mallory’s first friend beside Rider. Yes he had some problems that his big brother Hector try to help him through. Hector is over protective of Jayden however he had good reason and was sweet. Paige can be a ghetto bitch (pardon my language), but she does have reason. Also even though she gives Mallory lots of grief over Rider I did like her in the end. She is a harsh person but she doesn’t sugar coat things which I can respect.
Plus Mallory’s adopted parents who where there after she was taken out of that bad environment. They been through somethings before meeting Mallory which may have tired into there overprotective instinct with Mallory. They were really good people who let Mallory experience things like going to school or going out with friends. Even if it made them nerves wreaks as most parents would be.
I liked it for the fact to me it didn’t seem to rushed. It could have been annoying with it dragged out with Rider staying with Paige much longer. However I enjoyed the pace and how it developed for the most part.
The Audio version:
I enjoyed listening to it because though it was a 14 hour listen it didn’t fell like it. This is when audiobooks are the best because a book that’s 400+ pages seem like nothing. Amy Landon did a great job of keeping me in the story and enjoy it where I finished it in three days.
I loved this book and it took me to long to get my thoughts about it together to write a review. However its finally done and it may be a little rambled thanks for reading my thoughts.
