omgomgomgomgomgomgomgomg – That is how I felt when I read the first page

WAHHHOMGWTHOMGOMGIMGOINGTODIEMYLIFEISOVERHOWCOULDYOUMICHAELGRANTOYUEVILEVILHUMANBEING- That is how I felt when a character who I loved, who I had so many similarities with, died. I loved her to bits, she was my favorite character of the whole series.

She died a hero. I love this series. It’s like the best thing that could have ever happened to me. It is equal in my love for the Harry Potter series. I just – wow I’m pretty much speechless.

I was so scared for how the book would end. I’ll admit it, a tiny part of me wanted the FAYZ to carry on forever, because I knew the moment the giant dome disspaered, these brave guys, heroes, would be seen as psychopaths. They would go through so much trouble trying to clear their name, and they would… Separate. The FAYZ isn’t the same without Sam,Astrid,Caine,Dekka,Edilio,Brianna,Lana,Orc,Duck,Howard,Penny… I know I’m listing people who are dead aswell, but that’s the point. When they died, I felt like a part of me, apart of the FAYZ had died aswell. And at the end of the book, they would go back to being normal. No lighthands. No gravity defiening powers. Ordinary, apart from the horrors and tragic stuff they had been through together.

The actual book was amazing. Gaia creeped me out >_< . I loved every aspect of the book, but I definitely wanted a few more ‘Aftermath’ chapters. It was way to short for me, after 6 books of these charcters sturggling to survive, no way was I happy for around 3 or 4 chapters on what was happeneing to them now.

They should totally have a FAYZ reunion, held in Perdido beach. Can you imagine?

‘OMG . I havent seen you since you tried to kill me for food!!’

‘You look amazing! Remember after that fight how we found some rats to eat?’

‘Oh yeah… So what do you do now?’

‘I’m an accountant’

See what I mean? It would be funny as hell. Anyway I’m going to go now and go over the what I did when Harry Potter finished.

1) DENIAL

2) Crying

3) Re- Reading all the books ( and crying some more)

4) Trying to get in contact with the author to beg for more books

5) Crying

6) Googling the FAYZ

7) Finding other people that are going through the same thing as you, and cry with them

8) Crying

9) Staring at thewall, wondering what to do with my life now that it is officially over

10) Cry

So as you can see I’m real busy right now… Adios duudes 😉

❤ The Host – Stephenie Meyer | Book Review ❤

Hey Guys :’) ,

After I read the Twilight series I was literally scarred by reading such poorly written writing. It was very slow, and just boring to be honest. However most teen girls with a disgusting taste of books, seemed to like it, so that was good for Stephenie. When I heard about The Host I was extremely wary about whether it was worth my time reading it, as it is pretty huge. It has been sitting in the library for two years for me to read it but I have always been put off. I mean on the cover it said ‘ Author of the bestseller Eclipse’… If that isn’t going to put you off reading a book; I don’t know what is. And it also had the really freaky eye thing on the cover…

The Host cover

See what I mean about the freaky eye??

HOWEVER – I finished The Host in around 12 hours. I started in the afternoon, carried on till at least 2 in the morning, woke up at 5 and finished it off :’). That was how awesome it was. And it is an extremely thick book, around 700 pages or more

Stephenie has created a dystopian world, full of imagination, so unique and just plainly awesome. Seriously, she should have written this under a pseudonym, loads of more people probably would’ve read it.

It was set in the future, and there was no physical fighting, no wars. No one ever got sad, or was even hurt verbally. Humans were generally much more peaceful, and trusted one another completely. Violence and crime were unheard of. Money wasn’t an issue anymore since it didn’t exist. You just walked into a shop, got what you wanted and bought it back to the counter, so the shop keeper, could tally up the things he needs to buy more off. Awesome, right?

Well… The main reason everything was going so smoothly in Earth is because the citizens weren’t human. Well they still were, but they all had something inside them. A soul, or as the humans called them, a parasite. They souls were very gentle and peaceful, which is why earth is a much better place. Every single human has a soul, controlling their body, actions and even speech.

Some humans however, are still trappped inside their own bodies. They cannot move for them self, and can only talk using their bodies sometimes, but they can communicate with the soul inside their head.

Humans are pretty much extinct, apart from rebel humans, living in hiding, determined not to go towards the same doomed fate as the rest of the world. Melanie, is one of those humans. But when she is snatched and her body is made host for Wanderers soul something… out of place happens. Different. And very frightening for Wanderer. Melanie is still alive, and she demands her presence to be heard.

This is not normal at all for souls and their hosts, and without realizing it Wanderer is on a journey looking for Jared and Jamie, Melanie’s little brother and the guy she was camping with.

The book really made me think of appearances, and just how much of our character they made up. I liked the whole concept of the ‘Souls’ and the different worlds in which they lived. Much more imaginative and cool than sparkling fairy vampires.

Trust me it feels weird to be talking about how awesome a book by Stephenie Meyer is. Very weird.

But I liked and I will probably re-read it soon<3

Adios dudes 😉
