We Were Liars

Oh my god, I hated this book. I really don’t want to talk about it, because I disliked it so much, but here we go. Major spoilers going one here.

A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True love.
The truth.

Fairest: The Lunar Chronicles

Oh man, what a good book! I actually wasn’t interested in this book, I only bought it because I absolutely love The Lunar Chronicles. I don’t really like to read those side stories for series either, like how Dorothy Must Die and The Selection have, but this one I really enjoyed, which I didn’t expect because it’s about one of the evilest characters out there in YA fiction.

There will be spoilers, but I’m not sure if you can really call them that since it just goes into detail about things you already know about Levana from the books Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress.

Without giving spoilers, this book was about Queen Levana from age 16 to about 26-27, maybe 5 or so years before the start of Cinder. It was a quick read, and I’d recommend it if you love The Lunar Chronicles.

Now for Spoilers.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall.
Who is the Fairest of them all?

Pure evil has a name, hides behind a mask of deceit, and uses her “glamour” to gain power. But who is Queen Levana? Long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress in The Lunar Chronicles, Levana lived a very different story—a story that has never been told . . . until now.

The Name of the Blade

Oh my god, Fairest comes out tomorrow! I already have my book pre-ordered, and I’m thinking I might even order the e-book so I can read it at work. I don’t know yet, haven’t decided.

Anyway, to get in the book reading mood, I read the book The Name of the Blade. It’s a pretty new here in the US, but it’s apparently been out for a while in the UK. The sequel is even out there too; I was able to find it on book depository. If you want them, they’re called The Night Itself and Darkness Hidden.

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis

What a good movie. I totally did a google search of the movie online and found a link, then watched it all. Loved it, and I’m not even a huge Aquaman fan.

Yea, it was predictable and what not, but I really enjoyed it.

Spoilers ahead.

Rogues’ Gallery

I love Arkham Asylum, don’t you? It’s just so amazing and creepy, home to the supervillainous insane (is that even a word, I don’t know!)

Anyway, I’m in a love hate relationship with this episode, actually with this show in general. I love the story of the week, but I hate the main story. I’m so done with it. All it is is I’m gonna betray you, now I’m gonna betray you, now you. Secrecy, secrecy, secrecy. I swear, if something doesn’t happen soon that isn’t talking in the shadows I may give up on this show.

I understand that it’s suppose to be a mystery, cop drama, not a superhero show, but this is just bad.
