Berries in the Sky

I really like reading and I devote a lot of my free time to reading. I won't review as many books as I read, partially because I'm in my last year of secondary school and grades, yeah... so.
A Million Suns  - Beth Revis

I really feel like Revis upped her writing in this one. It's a really good sequel and, at least for me, doesn't fall into the sophomore slump  The nice thing (which I didn't write in my last review) is that the romance doesn't overtake the story, there is romance in the book, but not too much and it's not the main plot, which I really like since I'm not a big fan of romance books (though I like romance in books, it's complicated...). It continues to surprise like in the last book, you think you know what's going on, but you really don't.

But yeah, I'm really anticipating the third book, but I'll have to wait since I'm on a small book buying ban >.< 

City of Bones  - Cassandra Clare I am SO glad I'm finished with this book, the last time I have felt like this was when I read Wuthering Heighs (though that was a much more intense feeling of wanting to finish a book).
I don't hate this book, but I don't like it either, it was okay and I will NOT be reading the rest of the series.
Wow this book has bad character development most of the time, and the information dumping, like please don't! I can honestly say, I skimmed about 150 pages of this book because I was so tires of reading it.
That is to say, this seems to be a love or hate kind of book, so just because I don't like it doesn't mean you won't.
(though I still stand by that, hate it or love it, this is a very mediocre book).
Warm Bodies - Isaac Marion I liked the book, but it was pretty in the face with the Romeo and Juliet retelling.

It's well written, but there was just some places that were, off for me? But it's a very quotable book at places and I like that.

I hope the next book in the series explain some of the things that happened a little more, because there are some things that confuse me, a lot.

Last thing, a little less romance and a little more zombie horror would have been nice (says the scaredy-cat).

(I feel like this is such an unorganised review! oh well...)
Across the Universe - Beth Revis Really liked the plot and character development. The book really surprised me a lot of the time, but I found the writing style rather awkward at places
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky Wow this book. this book is fantastic!
I don't really know what to say about it, other than I feel infinite.
Uglies  - Scott Westerfeld This is a nice , with a good and intriguing plot. The story is thought-provoking, but the characters are just not too well rounded (other than Shay perhaps). I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.
Artemis Fowl  - Eoin Colfer I think you have to be a boy in the age of 9-12 to really appreciate this book and it's humor, or at least I think so, I may be wrong.

I won't say that this book is all bad, it's just... weak.
The characters have their fun moments, but are not worked enough upon, they are quite flat.
Another problem I see is Colfer's unexplainable desire to use very scientific terms and long describings of otherwise rather daunting things; and that space could have been used to develop the characters more or describe the environment.

The bookis fun, but rather weak and I will not be reading the next books in the series, eventhough I have heard they get better.
Though I will stress upon that boys in their pre-teens will think that this book is very entertaining.
A Wizard of Earthsea  - Ursula K. Le Guin A very interesting and different fantasy book.
I first realised half-way through the book that it was written in 1967 (my mum was only 4 years at that time!). So I think you could easily say that it is very controversial.

The story is about Ged, who, in a very young age, finds out that he is a wizard. First he trains with his aunt, the village witch, then later with the silent wizard Ogion, who helps saving their village. He also travels to Roke to be taught by the best of wizards.
He gains friends, and learns fast, but he also does mistakes and one of them nearly costs him his life.
He has to learn to fight his own battle, even his own shadow, to truly learn who he really is.
Scatterheart - Lili Wilkinson The book is really good, but I don't think the characters a "round" enough
