My Rating : *2.5 Stars*

Synopsis:

For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together, Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university, everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart.

Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source—a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend that she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes… and none of them will ever be the same.

Review :

I don’t even know what I want to say, I really don’t. Okay let me start my ranting!

Plot :

If I tell you what is the second most shittiest thing about this book, I would say The Plot.

Okay sometimes you come across a book, you start reading it and after a while you get to know that it actually is a part of a series,meh… So yes I first read the second book, that is Effortless.(turned out it was not this shitty, and I wanted know what exactly happened before…so that led me to the first book, that is Thoughtless.)

So now I’m here reading Thoughtless, I’m very curious to know what actually happened in the first book.

Turned out LOVE TRIANGLE happened :/ ( Why? oh, why?)

Now that is also not the worst thing that happened in the book…the protagonist  turned out to be a total idiot, like if I meet her in real life, I would just smack her face hard on the wall(let us talk about her later).

But still I read the whole book(whole book I’m talking about, let me tell you I read the whole series :P) because the author hold my attention with all the drama and emotion, but dear lord! this book was a roller coaster ride, indeed it was.

Characters :

There are three main characters, Kellan, Kiera and Danny. Kiera, the protagonist, is actually in relationship with Denny. Kellan is Denny’s best friend.

Kellan Kyle

I really want to ask S.C. Stephens, that what were you trying to do while you wrote this character. What do you want? Do you want us to die in shame? or maybe you want us to have an expectation that a guy like this exist? BTW who were you thinking about while writing this character, I want to know madam.

I fell in love with this guy instantly, I was like wow…but I’m really angry with him as well. And also I feel sorry for him. He is not perfect, but he’s perfect. He’s lead singer of a band called ” D-Bags”(Really, I hate the name).

Denny

pick for Denny

He is the best character in the whole book, although the storyline broke my heart at times for Denny 😦

Kiera

Well she is the worst person in the book.

Kiera is a self centered, stubborn, clueless, immature and a selfish woman.

She was constantly cheating and cheating and cheating on her boyfriend through out the book…and was constantly feeling guilty for what she was doing.

It was like I’m cheating and I’m guilty, but again I’m cheating and I’m guilty…But I’ll still cheat( Who the fuck does that?) I literally started hating the word guilty after reading this book.

And then for some reason she thought that she is innocent :/

Kellan: We were never innocent, Kiera. How naive are you?

I hated her, and now I’m tired of thinking about her. And most of the people in this book were stupid, total stupid!

And then there are other characters, band members, their girlfriends( they are just normal), then there are these weird people who work at Petes (it is a bar where D-Bags play their music)

So well now I want to forcefully end this review, like the author did with the book. Nothing much to say, but I still want to say something that don’t read this book.(If you are not already in the trap ;))

And if people call this romance, I hate romance!

Review to second book Effortless(Thoughtless #2)

Book Review : Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi

5fe5b-2871397

My Rating: *4 stars*

Author : Carlo Collodi

“Lies, my dear boy, are found out immediately, because they are of two sorts. There are lies that have short legs, and lies that have long noses. Your lies, as it happen, is one of those that have a long nose.”

While I was buying the books, my friend asked me what all books I’m buying. When I showed her, she questioned me.


Pinocchio really?

Yes, I replied 😉


Okay to start with I would say forget what all Disney taught you instead read this, I really liked this version better. It has more deeper meaning to it!

There was once upon a time…..

                      ‘A king!’ my little readers will shout together.

                       No, children, you make a mistake. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood.

This is how the book begins!


This book is really good and for me a bit strange. But I guess this book is one that everyone should read, as said good for both adults and children. Also if you even don’t like this book for certain reason, your curiosity to know what actually happens will make you read it, believe it!

This book tells you to make something out of your life instead of not doing anything.

“Bear it in mind, Simpleton! Boys who refuse to study, and turn their backs upon books, schools, and masters, to pass their time in play and amusements, sooner or later come to a bad end…I know it by experience…and I can tell you. A day will come when you’ll weep as I’m weeping now…but then it will be too late!”

Pinocchio is basically an asshole, he is selfish, cruel, bratty, he lies, he cheats and he steals. Also he is trying to figure out how the world works, he is a free spirit and attached to no moral system, and through out the book trying to become a good boy.

“But I am not like other boys! I always tell the truth.”

Well he is certainly not! His heart is good, but he make terrible decisions constantly.


This book is unsurprisingly dark and is an honest view of children and their troubles. As most of the children books have life lessons, so does this book have it.


Also I asked my 8 year old brother to read this book and after reading first 6 chapters, he told me, this guy killed the cricket by throwing a mallet at him. He is so cruel. ‘Blockhead!’

No idea what lesson he is going to learn after reading this book, but certainly he is going to add few new words in his vocabulary by the time he will reach the end of the book, I guess.

While I’ll say the ending is great and this book is definitely fun to read. And yes the nose growing thing is certainly not a huge part of the story and also there were few characters that were introduced in the story and they just disappeared and that was weird, I mean it doesn’t make sense to me :/

Now if I talk about recommendation then I recommend this book to everyone, both adults and children. And parents who are going to read this book to their children, I suggest you to read this book before you read it to them, or you all can just enjoy it together, no worries. Just saying 😀

Happy Reading!
