Holy Flamin baby gargoyles! What the heck did I just read?! I just fell down into a hole…A Jennifer world-sized hole, that just consumed me. Does that make sense to anyone else or is that a weird analogy only I will understand haha? Whatever, I’m owning it…it was an awesome hole too.
So you know that feeling you get when reading a book and then something crazy happens?! And you just have to walk away from your book because you need to process your emotions? Yeah that’s me currently. I’m feeling this 👇🏻 hard.
“It’s all poo… ideals of strength being shoved in our faces. Movies. Books. Television. Magazines. You’d think that after the world almost ended, people would’ve gotten their lives right, but oh no. We still operate by the broke-butt ideology of girl power, but it’s only girl power if you’re an assassin.” I sat back. “What is that teaching us ladies? That if you’re not physically strong, if you can’t kick butt, you’re weak? That if you feel overwhelmed or emotional, you’re not strong? Or that if you aren’t emotional, something is wrong with you? That’s poo, and it’s unrealistic.” Her shoulders tensed. “Real strength does not exist in muscles or deadly skill. It exists in your ability to pick yourself up and keep going after the shit hits the fan. That’s strength.”
– The Burning Shadow – Zoey (PS slightly edited since I don’t swear) – Jennifer Armentrout
I have no clue whatsoever how to start this review.
Because holy flippin’ llama’s and aliens flying everywhere! This book literally destroyed me! It was fantastic and beautiful but it broke my heart soooo many times. I don’t even know what’s going through my head right now. All I know is that Jennifer…my heart…is breaking.
Okay so I had this review written up on Goodreads and I just can’t cope with the normalcy of it…so I need to Sprouse (did you see what I just did there lol 😉 ) it up a bit and add some crazy to the mix. I couldn’t believe there wasn’t one gif! Not one! That’s just crazy and weird.
Soo I’m not actually reading any new books at the moment currently doing a re-red of the Lux series in prep of the new book Burning Shadow that comes out 8th October. So can it really be counted as a teaser if the books been out so long? lol
Whatever though let’s do it. Everyone loves Daemon. I know I do. 🙂 ❤
“Or…maybe you’re not aware of it?” She shrugged again, and I couldn’t believe she didn’t see what I… Wait a second. She didn’t see what I saw? When had what I saw changed? Because I’d been thinking she was plain as hell. Sometimes above average when she was mad. Or smiling. Or blushing. But, well, mainly she was just average. As I watched her cheeks pink up even more, I knew I’d been wrong…
…“You know what I’ve always believed?” I asked, stopping in the middle of the path. She looked up at me, her eyes wide but not wary. “No.” For a moment, I didn’t speak, and the only sound between us was the chirping of nearby birds as my gaze searched hers. “I’ve always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect. The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It’s just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.”
As promised yesterday here is my review that inspired the starting of the Fighting The Storm Campaign. If you want to get in on that you can find our facebook group right HERE! We have only really just gotten started. 🙂
Okay…so onto the review…first off you can get this precious, precious gem right here! You don’t want to miss it, believe me on this!
Let me tell you a quick story about this mission below….way,way down there👇. After receiving a highly anticipated read Storm & Fury I got a message from a girl, that I had only just spoken to recently, ZanMari Vosges or better known as Fuzzy. We instantly clicked and became super crazy friends. But what was in the message you ask? Well it was to help show our love and support to Jennifer Lynn Armentrout and to raise awareness for Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). Instead of thinking “wow you are crazy chick!” my first reaction and gut instinct was telling me I HAD to do it. I just knew that this was something we needed to do and try. So I was like “Heck yeah! Let’s do this!” And so we set out, just us, and we were absolutely blown away by the response to this campaign.
I just realised that after over 5 rereads I never gave this an actual review!
A book worthy of this many times being read definitely deserves more than just saying 5 ⭐️ right?! And plus I can’t ignore the one series that gave me many, many book-hangovers and one serious book boyfriend that you’ll never convince me to leave behind.
