Author: Marissa Meyer
Expected publication: February 4th 2014 by Feiwel & Friends
Type: Science Fiction, Dystopian

Goodreads: Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard. 

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker—unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.

Thoughts: I LOVE, LOVE! this series. I am so happy my mother told me to read this series. Ever since then i have been just in love with this series. And doesn’t look like cress is just gonna be freaking amazing? After the ending of Scarlet i have been just dyeing to find out what happens next. Another reason why i love this series: You get to learn to love a new character in each book and watch them come together. You Don’t just focused one one character and that is just awesome!

Title: Raging Star ( Dust Lands #3 )
Author: Moira Young
Expected publication: May 13th 2014 by Margaret K. McElderry Books
Type: Dystopian

Goodreads: Saba is ready to seize her destiny and defeat DeMalo and the Tonton…until she meets him and he confounds all her expectations with his seductive vision of a healed earth, a New Eden. DeMalo wants Saba to join him, in life and work, to create and build a healthy, stable, sustainable world…for the chosen few. The few who can pay.

Jack’s choice is clear: to fight DeMalo and try to stop New Eden. Still uncertain, her connection with DeMalo a secret, Saba commits herself to the fight. Joined by her brother, Lugh, anxious for the land in New Eden, Saba leads an inexperienced guerilla band against the powerfully charismatic DeMalo, in command of his settlers and the Tonton militia. What chance do they have? Saba must act. And be willing to pay the price

Thoughts: Another series i love( and i do have many ). I really can’t wait to read this one! i have been biting my nails ever since i have read the 2nd book. I am a little disappointed in the cover. i never really been a fan of dark green shade. But i do really love the fact that Saba and Jack are both on the cover( I ship them ). The way the book series is written has always caught an interest in me. Sometime i like to read the book aloud just because it fun. I haven’t pre-order this book yet but i do plan on it soon.

Dust Lands | Rebel Heart | Moira Young

Image

Rebel Heart made me sad and angry most of the time, i still can’t get over what Saba did, like my brain can’t wrap around it like it’s jammed. At one point i had to shut the book just to breath. This book will leave you Hopeless and shocked. It’s a page turner all right like i was up all night reading and could not stop until i finished it, it was that good.

The book starts off with Jack but you don’t hear from him for a while until towards the end of the book, you hear about him doing stuff that makes you wonder ” What the hell Jack ” but then you know it can’t, be cause it’s jack there has to be a reason for everything..right? It’s jack you just know that in your gut.

And then there is Saba…oh sometimes i just want to smack her and throw the book out the window for what she did. you can tell there something up with her in the beginning. she does stuff that you just can’t believe and then your heart goes out for her but then she does stuff that pisses you off.

Tommo oh Tommo i have no words for him really just my sadness like i just want to rip my heart out and give it to him cause he has been threw so much.

But over all the book is a great read even tho it makes your heart break. If you read Blood red road and haven’t read Rebel Heart yet…what the hell are you waiting for? Read it! it’s worth the heart breaking. So much more goes on in the book that i can’t explain, tho i wish i could. Just read it..

Favorite Quotes

“All the time I’ve knowed you, Jack, you kept the door to that heart of yers locked up tight an the key hid away. Looks like she found it.
He says nothing. Molly waits. Then:
Keys ain’t her style, he says. She kicked the door down.”

“Saba! I’m afeared! cries Emmi. 
If you are, you ain’t no sister of mine! I shout. Come at me agin!
I ain’t afeared of nuthin! She yells. 
That’s more like it.”

“I think of what we might say. Him to me. Me to him. I ain’t no soft girl. I don’t know no soft words. Be with me, Jack. That’s what I’ll say. Burn with me. Shine with me.”

“How could she resist them eyes?
She tries, says Jack. Man, did she try.”

“Pa? You never said. What’m I gonna be? Good or bad? 
He kisses the top of my head. Whispers in my ear, so’s only him and me can hear. You, my darlin daughter, are gonna be somethin else entirely.”

Dust Lands | Blood Red Road | By Moira Young

Image

Blood red road can be a little hard to understand at first because of the writing, The author really was trying to get you to really understand Saba on how she sounds.Once i got best that i loved it and started to understand everything and even While i was reading the book inside my head i sounded like her and i loved that. Another reasons why i love this book is because of Saba’s Sass was so funny. I love sass in a book brings laughter in a sad book. And she is a bad ass..(Spoiler)She is the Angel of death and all. and oh my love for Jack is really strong. I love how he tried so hard to get Saba to understand that he liked her and watching there struggle was sad but lovely at the same-time. Saba is not used to the “Real” World all her life up to a certain point never even left home. She never got to meet people and never even been around boys her age step for her brother. so when jack came around she was very Sassy and “Bitchy”( can i use that word? ) But Jack still tried so you gotta give him cred.

The Plot of the story is amazing. It’s noting like The hunger games or Divergent or any other dystopian book and it really annoys me when people compare them together. THG is awesome don’t get me wrong ( Huge fan right here ) I know some people don’t like it but from the people judging book because someone doesn’t like it, just stop you need to just read this book first and judge from them you might end up liking it. I know i did.
