Time To Share The Love || Paradox by A.J Paquette

Hello Readers and Happy Monday!

I am SO excited to bring you today’s book review. Today I am reviewing (as the title of the post says) Paradox by A.J Paquette. I have been meaning to read this book for a while and I FINALLY had the chance to sit down and read for the first time in a couple weeks…So it was obvious I was gonna pick this baby up 🙂 Oh! and fun fact quickly before I start!

Fun Fact: The author of this book is my mum’s cousin which I think is SUPER cool and I am very proud of. (I love my family heehee 🙂 )

Now! On with the review!

 

The Maze Runner meets Hatchet in this sci-fi adventure with a surprise twist ending that no one will see coming.

Survive one world. Save another.

Ana wakes on a barren alien world. The instructions in her pocket tell her that she must survive a trek across Paradox in less than 28 hours.

Mission? Check.
Weapons? Check.
Memory? Missing. . . .

Meeting up with three other teens—including one boy who seems strangely familiar—Ana treks across the inhospitable landscape, occasionally encountering odd twists of light that carry glimpses of people back on Earth. They’re fighting some sort of disease, and the situation is critical. What’s the connection between Ana’s mission and the crisis back on Earth, and how is she supposed to figure it out when she can’t remember anything?

I LOVED this book! It was probably one of the best novels Sci-Fi novels I have read in a while! Absolutely fantastic. Within a couple hours I had finished this book and was left in complete shock and was brutally attacked by feels.

feels

I don’t really know what I was expecting from the book but it certainly wasn’t what I was expecting at all! It was more and better than I had expected. (Not that I hadn’t expected it to be great…I just didn’t know what kind of greatness to expect)

and the ending….oh my…Don’t even get me started on the ending. I had a ‘stare at the last page and hope this is a joke and there is one more chapter’ moment….Sadly there was not another chapter…but OH THE FEELS!

I was very intrigued by the characters and I really loved seeing things from the POV of an amnesiac character. How she saw things and even portrayed the characters made a huge difference and had a unique spin to it which I loved!

The whole planet Paradox thing was a cool spin too. The setting was so well done that I felt like I was there, felt like I was on that planet Paradox racing against a count down (and running from a giant, human eating worm) with these characters. It was absolutely amazing!

I’m hoping that there is or will be a book two in the making. The way the book ended really had me wondering if there is or COULD be a possible sequel for Paradox.

One last note…If you liked The Maze Runner (mainly The Death Cure) then you will LOVE this book and you should definitely read this 😀

My Rating:

gg66042870-2

So, thats my review! What did you think? Have you read ‘Paradox’? Do you plan to? Is it on your TBR list? If you have read it, what did you think of it? I hope you love(d) it!

Until Next Time!

It’s Addicting Book Review

Hello Readers!

I am finally back! I am so sorry for neglecting my blogging duties but school only seems to be taking up more and more of my time (joys of growing up, right?)

Anyways. I could go on and on coming up with all sorts of excuses, but I won’t so it’s time for a book review.

Today I am going to be reviewing Laura Smith’s ‘It’s Addicting’, the third book in the “Status Update Series’

Obsessing over status, grades, exercise or a boyfriend could never become an addiction…could it?

This third installment of the Status Updates series finds four college sophomore roommates finally getting comfy with the routines of dorm life. But Kat, Claire, Palmer, and Hannah soon begin to feel the nagging ache of innocent little addictions pulling them away from their true selves. Hang out with these four roomies to see if they can—or even want to—ditch these sneaky little hang-ups before they take over their lives.

It’s Addicting. Such a great book, along with the series… I guess we could say it’s… Addicting? (See what I did there? 😉 )

I am absolutely in LOVE with with this series and I am dying of impatience for the next book. (Which also marks the end of the series so I guess I can wait a little longer.)

Once again, I loved the characters. I loved the individuality of the girls but yet how even though they are all so different they are such great friends and how Christ really brings these friends together. (I think my last review was me basically discussing how much I love how their friendship was so realistic and what not.)

I love how Christ is written in every page in this novel. In this story the characters struggle with different kinds of addictions.

I also love how the book shows that what we might not think to be addictions can easily become that if we aren’t careful. It kinda gets you thinking.

Are there any addictions that’s are holding you down or maybe even pulling you away from God?

So today’s review is kinda short. But yet it’s sweet.

Short but sweet 🙂

Overall I give this book a 5 out of 5 star rating. I absolutely loved it and I am so excited for the next book! (Well kinda… I don’t want this series to end!!)

Until Next Time,

Adriana Gabrielle
