“Bravery is looking at the world around you, and seeing each moment for what it is- a choice.”

Just like the original book, I should have read this much sooner than I actually got around to it.  I had already bought the last book in the series (Divined) before I even started this.  But after reading the first one I knew I’d have to know how this story finishes out. My plan is to read Divined next on my kindle.  Now I can’t take my kindle to work so I’ll be reading something else at work but I will most likely be reading two books at once because now that I’ve finished Forsworn, I definitely feel that urge to pick up the final book in the series.  I’m quite glad in a way that I did wait as now I don’t have to wait for the finale.  I can just immediately start it.  Yay.

“We never finished our dance”

Sahara’s response was soft, her eyes holding a thousand dreams. “We never will. This dance we’re in, it’s forever.”

Somehow all my latest favorite quotes are from Kaleb.  Haha not that I’m all that suprised since he is so epic.  It took a really long time for me to find a favorite character.  I’m very attached to a few couples in this series.  I love Brenna/Judd, Hawk/Sienna and of course Sahara/Kaleb.

“Beneath my mania to punish Terayama-san was an even deeper one: the need to punish myself.”

I really wanted to like Shadows on the Moon.  Yet I just…couldn’t.  The premise was so interesting, it held so much promise.  I fear I put up my expectations too high. I love books with the Japanese culture included as that is quite rare in YA. The idea of shadow weaving was interesting, if not quite convenient for absolutely everything in this novel.  A Japanese take on Cinderella…but honestly it really wasn’t.  It had a cruel stepfather, a prince and a ball.  Oh and our heroine was a servant for part of the book.

Illuminae — Book Review

Favorite Quote:

“Part of being alive is having life change us.  The people around us, the events we live through, all of them shape us. And that’s what I think you’re afraid of.”

Words.  SO MANY WORDS NEEDED TO DESCRIBE MY FEELS.  Oh where do I even begin.  I must say the formatting of this book is quite possibly the most unique, intriguing, fantastic idea I may have ever seen or read.  This is not told like a typical story at all.  It is told between emails, chat conversations, dossiers, mission reports, ship schematics, computer logs, etc.  Yet it flows seamlessly together to create a vivid world, characters you root for, characters you can’t wait to die, characters you get attached to in a singular page before they are erased.  All together it creates an incredible yet terrifying story with such pull that I just could not put it down.
