Goodreads Synopsis

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

I mean I know I am pretty late in reviewing this book but still I love it and I want to read it.

I think I’ve read it so many times so far that I keep loving it even more.

I mean it’s the perfect book. It has everything I want. Amazing plot, deeply constructed characters and a fair good amount of emotions.

In the book we follow Cath’s journey to college. We read about the changes that are happening in her life and how she’s dealing with them and at the same time finding herself.

I have to say that I love Rainbow Rowell’s books but I adore the characters she creats even more. I mean Cath’s personality is just too awesome. Her love for Simon Snow even though it’s kind of excessive, is adorable. She’s dedicated and smart and funny and I just feel like she’s someone close to me.

Her twin sister, Wren, is the only character in this book that I don’t like. She’s so selfish that I really can’t deal with her. She acts like she doesn’t love Cath anymore and that made me mad. She’s definitely my least favorite character BUT I think she’s very suitable and that she plays a big part in the book.

I love how Rainbow Rowell has inserted love in the book. Love between family, love between two fictional characters and love between two real ones. It’s just so beautiful to red about them.

I adored getting to read about the closeness that Cath’s family got after a series of events.

Throughout the book we get to read some parts of Cath’s fan-fiction books with Baz and Simon’s story. That itself is just a stunning feauture that makes us more excited for Baz and Simon’s story, Carry On.

And then there’s Levi. Always leaning 😉 He’s just awesome and I love how he adores Cath and cares for her in a way that just shows how much he loves her. Adorable.

All in all this books is a perfect combination of what a YA or Contemporary book should have.

Down The TBR Hole #8

Web

Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story. Its purpose is to help narrow down your TBR list on Goodreads by selecting 5 titles each week and deciding if you want to keep it on your TBR or get rid of it! I was inspired by Amy @acourtofcrownsandquills to start this blog series cause I really need to organise that TBR hole. wink wink.

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

The fact that I will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR.

THIS WEEK’S BOOKS:

One of the same this time too.

1) This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki & Jillian Tamaki

This sounds like such an interesting Graphic Novel and I haven’t read one in a while so…

Judgement: KEEP 

2) Seeking Crystal by Joss Stirling

I do own the first two books in the series and I still do want to read that third one.

Judgement: KEEP 

3) The Queen Of Air And Darkness by Cassandra Clare

I DON’T EVEN NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS.

Judgement: KEEP

4) Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith

You know the drill.

Judgement: KEEP 

5) The Body Electric by Beth Revis

O-K-A-Y THAT SOUNDS SO INTERESTING.

Judgement: KEEP 

I can’t even make justifications anymore. I think that my Goodreads shelf is never going to become a little less ‘heavier’.
Feel free to recommend me books to add (or remove) from my TBR 🙂 You can go and check out my to-read shelf here, or here to add me as a friend on Goodreads.

Hotel Sacher by Rodica Doehnert – Non-Spoiler Review

Goodreads Synopsis

One woman takes hold of her legacy in an epic tale of Viennese romance, deception, and danger.

Vienna, 1892. Against all odds, at the height of Belle Époque splendor, Anna Sacher has taken possession of her late husband’s hotel, across the street from the famous opera house. At a time when controlling such a business was an opportunity afforded only to men, Anna is as vigilant as she is relentless. Now, under her ownership, the Hotel Sacher thrives amid the tumult of a changing continent, even as intrigue follows in the shadows.

Through its opulent halls stride visitors from all walks of life, including some of the most glamorous figures of Viennese society—opera singers, princes, princesses—and the maids and manservants who wait on them.

Some guests will find romance. Some will unearth secrets. And some will discover much more than they expected.

I am finally ready to talk about this book. I was so intrigued by the plot that I was so excited to read it, but it took me some time to finish it and I will right away explain why this happened.

This book is a story that contains more stories in it. I don’t know if that makes any sense. In other words, there are a lot of stories mixed together. That by itself caused a lot of issues to me.

It started really well. The story was moving forward and I was really into it. But then, there was an 8 year gap that I wasn’t prepared for. It just happened from one chapter to another. I was so confused. I am not saying I didn’t like it but I just wasn’t ready for it.

At the same time I was reading about 4 different stories. This was also really confusing. It took me a lot of time to make sure I understood which story I was reading. All of them where based on one another so that makes up for everything.

In the book I really loved the appearances of Love and Death. How they were lurking through the shadows. I love how the play a huge part in the story even though we don’t expect them too. There were some pretty amazing parts in the book that I loved reading because of the quality of the words.

I need to also say that I really liked the love element in this book. The fight for love.
And I also have to say that the ending made me tear up a little bit, so be aware.

All in all, it was a pretty good book BUT I wouldn’t recommend it to people my age. I personally think that it is definitely better and would be more loved by an older reading audience.

Ο ιδιοκτήτης του Ξενοδοχείου Ζάχερ πεθαίνει σε νεαρή ηλικία.
Ένα εντεκάχρονο κορίτσι εξαφανίζεται στα σοκάκια της Βιέννης.
Δύο ζευγάρια συναντιούνται στη σάλα του ξενοδοχείου.
Είναι η νύχτα της 28ης Νοεμβρίου 1892.
Μετά τον ξαφνικό θάνατο του συζύγου της, η Άννα Ζάχερ θέλει να αναλάβει η ίδια τη διεύθυνση του ξενοδοχείου και είναι αποφασισμένη να ξεπεράσει κάθε εμπόδιο για να συνεχίσει τον θρύλο του Ζάχερ μαζί με το αφοσιωμένο προσωπικό της.

Ανάμεσα στις σουίτες και τα σεπαρέ του ξενοδοχείου εκτυλίσσεται ένα ερωτικό δράμα με τέσσερις πρωταγωνιστές, το πριγκιπικό ζεύγος Γκέοργκ και Κονστάντσε φον Τράουνσταϊν και τη Μάρτα και τον Μαξιμίλιαν Άντερχολντ, εκδότες από το Βερολίνο. Οι δύο γυναίκες γίνονται φίλες, αλλά οι σχέσεις ανάμεσα στα δύο ζευγάρια δεν σταματούν εκεί. Σε έναν κόσμο που αλλάζει, οι ήρωές μας κυνηγούν τα όνειρά τους σε μια διαδρομή που θα τους φέρει αντιμέτωπους με προδοσίες, ηθικά διλήμματα και μυστικά από το παρελθόν – αλλά πάνω απ’ όλα με τον Θάνατο, τη Ζωή και τον Έρωτα.
Σ’ αυτό το σαγηνευτικό μυθιστόρημα, η συγγραφέας ανασηκώνει με μαεστρία το παραπέτασμα μιας εποχής που φαντάζει μακρινή μες στην αχλή του χρόνου και παρακολουθεί την πτώση των ευρωπαϊκών μοναρχιών.

Επιτέλους είμαι έτοιμη να μιλήσω για αυτό το βιβλίο. Η περίληψη του βιβλίου μου είχε αρέσει τόσο πολύ που ήμουν πάρα πολύ ενθουσιασμένη να το διαβάσω αλλά μου πήρε λίγο χρόνο να το τελειώσω και θα εξηγήσω το γιατί.

Το βιβλίο είναι μια ιστορία με πολλές ιστορίες μέσα σε αυτό. Δεν ξέρω αν βγάζω νόημα. Με άλλο λόγια, υπάρχουν πολλές ιστορίες μπερδεμένες μέσα στο βιβλίο. Αυτό από μόνο του μου προκάλεσε κάποια προβλήματα.

Ξεκίνησε πολύ καλά. Η ιστορία προχωρούσε και εγώ την απολάμβανα πάρα πολύ. Αλλά μετά υπήρξε ένα κενό 8 χρόνων για το οποίο δεν ήμουν καθόλου προετοιμασμένη. Τελείωσε το ένα κεφάλαιο και το επόμενο ξεκίνησε 8 χρόνια μετά. Μπερδεύτηκα πάρα πολύ. Δεν λέω ότι δεν μου άρεσε απλά δεν ήμουν έτοιμη για κάτι τέτοιο.

Την ίδια στιγμή διάβαζα για 4 διαφορετικές ιστορίες. Άλλο ένα πράγμα που με μπέρδεψε. Μου πήρε λίγη ώρα να προσαρμοστώ και να καταλάβω την κάθε ιστορία που διάβαζα. Όλες όμως ήταν βασισμένες η μία πάνω στην άλλη, γεγονός που βοήθησε πάρα πολύ.

Στο βιβλίο λάτρεψα τις εμφανίσεις της Αγάπης και του Θανάτου. Το πως παραμόνευαν στις σκιές. Αγαπώ το γεγονός ότι παίζουν πολύ μεγάλο μέρος στην ιστορία ακόμα και αν εμείς δεν το περιμένουμε. Υπάρχουν κάποια καταπληκτικά σημεία στο βιβλίο που μου άρεσαν όταν τα διάβασα λόγω του κειμένου και της ποιότητάς τους.

Επίσης πρέπει να πω ότι μου άρεσε πολύ το στοιχείο της αγάπης μέσα στο βιβλίο.
Και επίσης το τέλος με έκανε να δακρύσω λίγο, γι’αυτό να είστε προετοιμασμένες/οι.

Συνοψίζοντας, ήταν ένα αρκετά καλό βιβλίο, ΑΛΛΑ δεν το προτείνω σε ανθρώπους της ηλικίας μου. Θεωρώ πως θα αγαπηθεί περισσότερο από ένα μεγαλύτερης ηλικίας αναγνωστικό κοινό.

Goodreads Synopsis

When Ella Jones’ twenty-first birthday ends with a bang – literally – she never imagined it would be with her best friend since freshman year, Ryan Owen. 

A year later, after their so called “mistake”, they’re still best friends and about to rock their Senior year at the University of San Francisco. But when Ryan returns from spending a summer in Australia and brings back a friend, Liam George, who takes an immediate liking to Ella, Ryan starts to question the Aussie’s intentions with his best friend. The trouble is, Ryan has a girlfriend of his own, and Ella and Ryan swore they would never cross that line again – until they do. 

They try not to let their second slip up affect their friendship, but when Spring Break forces them to vacation under the same roof; and Ryan’s ex walks back into his life, Ella is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ella continues to see Liam, Ryan finds himself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship strained for the first time, Ella and Ryan face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t be just friends. Maybe they are falling faster than expected. And maybe, deep down, they want to.

I am so excited to be a tout host for this blog tour. When I stambled upon it, I knew I would really like this book and I did.

I have to say that the book’s plot and story are definitely some of my all time favorite ones. Friendship turns into love? Old but gold. Isn’t that what they say?

When it comes to the characters of this book, I have to mention that they are so well constructed. I have to give that to the author. They have personalities and characteristics that make they unique and one of a kind. The depth that they have gives the story realism and makes it more real.

Ella and Ryan’s chemistry is definitely there. You can feel it. And it’s actually pretty sweet to read about. Even if there are some third people in the picture, there are always together and that shows how much they love each other.

I have to say that during the book the way Ella and Ryan’s love turns to a more deep one, is just beautiful. Their connection and the fact that they’re so good together makes me want to cry of how much I ship those two, even if they took some time to realize that.

Also I loved that in the story we get to meet the people around the two main characters and their friendship with each other. I love getting to meet and read about the rest of the characters because in some ways I get to find out more about the main characters themselves.

I usually finish these kind of books in two days because I get sucked in them and I just can’t wait to see what’s going to happen even though most of the times the ending is predictable. Although this book didn’t do that to me. I finished in five days.

The same back and forth situation with the two characters was a little too much and became exhausting. I am not saying that they should have confessed their love from the first chapter but some situations could have been avoided.

But I definitely thing that this isn’t a really big disadvantage becuase it gives the story time to develop and it sets the ground for the events that are going to happen. A lot of people like that. I just am not the biggest fan of it.

FAVORITE QUOTES
“Everything should feel as amazing as it appears. Except it doesn’t.”
“Of losing us-our friendship. I’ve been messing things up from the very first time I met you.”
“Like so in love with her that I’d stop a Ferris wheel, let her beat me at rock toss, and even buy her tickets to Paris, France because she’s a dorky art fanatic.”
_________________________________

From this book I am keeping something that I will do in my personal life if it comes up. Don’t wait THAT long to express your feelings. Best possible ending, they like you back. Worst, they don’t. It’s that simple. Everything would be easier if we had the courage to say what we feel when we want to.

If you’re in the mood for a fun, romantic book about two characters seriously in love, then this one is for you.

Goodreads Synopsis

Meet Ella, on the brink of turning 30 and full of regret for a life only half lived.

In a haze of heartbreak after splitting up with the man she thought she was going to marry, she makes the only decision that seems rational and buys a one-way ticket to Paris, embarking on a pilgrimage of food, wine, and joie de vivre.

After arriving, Ella struggles to grasp the nuances of French manners and friendship. She soon finds herself caught between two men who inhabit opposite ends of the Paris food scene, getting wined and dined by one, and inadvertently making a bet to try every type of French fromage with the other.

As the seasons change, Ella realizes that there’s more to life in France than champagne and cheese. At some point the Eiffel Tower stops sparkling and she needs to decide where her heart truly lies.

I am so mad that I didn’t like this book. It just wasn’t something I was expecting.

When I requested this book from the publisher, the title was the thing that caught my attention. I love Paris and French and I just had this whole thing in my mind for how this story could have turned out and I wanted to read it.

I found the idea of a heartbroken woman running of to Paris as something so brave and courageous. I loved how she did what she thought about in a whim. I loved how she decided to do something, so she did it. Paris is a great destination to reinvent yourself.

Ella was such a cool character in the beginning. Packed her things and left to a whole new continen, country and city. I give her points for bravery. I totally love her addiction of eating cheese and drinking whine. It’s clishe but it’s nice. But then I just found Ella so pathetic. She just didn’t try enough in my opinion. She just saw the first man walking and liked him. I felt like she was miserable when the book presented her as really really happy and excited. I unfortunately didn’t see that.

Also the man that she firsly likes, Gaston, even though he’s really charming and French and all that jazz, he’s also such a bad person. So into himself and so egoistic and treats Ella in such an awful way that I hated reading those chapters.

Even though the romance was kind of predictable I love that it was formed because of something both of them loved. I kinda wish that it had happened sooner because it just took too many chapters that I found very similar to each other.

I didn’t mind the endless description of the wine and cheese tasting. It was a cool feature the book provided since Ella was trying to try every French cheese out there – there are 365 kinds of cheese – another add that I really enjoyed.

I also have some gaps in the story especially the Jean-Pierre situation. It was so bizarre that I just got too confused. It just was something that I shouldn’t be in the book.
Also I didn’t like Ella’s mother at all. She sounds like these ladies that want their kids to achieve what they couldn’t when they were young. She’s so manipulative and makes Ella feel bad for her decisions and I just didn’t support that.

Apart from all of that though, I enjoyed the book. I didn’t like it but I had a fun time reading it. It provides such a sweet presentation of Paris life and food that I actually liked.

Goodreads Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Katie Price has a rare disease that makes exposure to even the smallest amount of sunlight deadly. Confined to her house during the day, her company is limited to her widowed father and her best (okay, only) friend. It isn’t until after nightfall that Katie’s world opens up, when she takes her guitar to the local train station and plays for the people coming and going.

Charlie Reed is a former all-star athlete at a crossroads in his life – and the boy Katie has secretly admired from afar for years. When he happens upon her playing guitar one night, fate intervenes and the two embark on a star-crossed romance.

As they challenge each other to chase their dreams and fall for each other under the summer night sky, Katie and Charlie form a bond strong enough to change them – and everyone around them – forever.

So I read this book last April or May I believe and I freaking loved it. I knew it was going to be a movie and I just wanted to read the book first. The movie was awesome btw. Watch whenever. You won’t regret it of you like those kind of drama, romantic, teen movies.

In the book we follow Katies journey to growing up with a desease that doesn’t let her leave the house and be in the sun. Basically if the sunshine falls on her skin it will kill her. She goes out at nights though. And one night she meets her actual crush in person (ahh Patrick Schwartzenegger) They instantly kind of fall in love and since the ending is kind of predictable (I obviously am a true lover of knowing the ending to a story) I’ll let you figure that out on your own.

I really am hurting on Katies behalf for her condition. She hasn’t left the house and hasn’t been able to live a full life. A life with experiences. And if this is happening to someone out there I know it’s not enough but I am so proud of you for going through that.

I love Katie and her dad’s relationship. It’s just the two of them and they are obviously so close. Even though he’s protective of her, he actually understands her and is so nice to her. I love how they joke with each other and how much love they have for each other. It’s beautiful.

I obviously adore Charlie. I mean you didn’t have to ask. He’s such a nice guy. So loving and caring and kind and just amazing. What else can Katie ask in order to live her night life?

I think that it’s obvious what I didn’t like in the book (sorry for the spoilers coming). How can someone not tell the other person that they have such a serious desease? I get how she feels and I totally want Katie to feel amazing but I would be devastated if I was in Charlie’s position. Unfortunately, we can’t have everything we want.

I just had to mention this. BUT. The last scenes were definitely my favorite and especially that last letter made me cry.
