Review: Unforgiven by Lauren Kate (Fallen, #5)

(from goodreads)

It's the book FALLEN fans have been waiting for: Cam’s story, the brooding, bad-boy dark angel readers love.

 High school can be hell.

Cam knows what it’s like to be haunted. He’s spent more time in Hell than any angel ever should. And his freshest Hell is high school, where Lilith, the girl he can’t stop loving, is serving out a punishment for his crimes.

Cam made a bet with Lucifer: he has fifteen days to convince the only girl who really matters to him to love him again. If he succeeds, Lilith will be allowed back into the world, and they can live their lives together. But if he fails . . . there’s a special place in Hell just for him.


Spread your wings and cry as bad boy dark angel Cam finally reveals his anguished heart in the epic new FALLEN novel, UNFORGIVEN.

Wow… Cam’s story. When Lauren first told us reader that we were getting a book about Cam, I was expecting a book that would be talking about all of his past lives up until now. When we got the summary, then I knew it wasn’t at all what I expected, but I was still pretty hype about reading it.

When I finally got the chance to start the book, I had a hard time letting it down and only did because I was working or had plans that I couldn’t cancel.

It was really a frustrating book because you just want to kick Lucifer’s ass the whole book. I seriously would have jumped in there and hit him a millions of times because he wasn’t playing fair (not that anyone expects HIM to play fair, but you get my drift).

I really enjoyed seeing Cam so determined to do something right for the girl he loves. He never falters even when things are far from being in his favor. He is determined to get Lilith out of there in every possible ways.

And Lilith, got on my nerves at first, but then, I started understanding her closed heart more and more and I was praying throughout the whole book that there would be some kind of happy ending for her. Lilith had a hard life and she was bitter about so many aspects of her life and most of them were towards Cam even if she didn’t understand why.

I was really happy that we also had a glimpse about their past together and see how she ended up there. It was heartbreaking reading this because you knew Cam had so much love for her, but he seemed so scared about what he was that he preferred back then to flee than to face her.

Like I said before, you get easily frustrated reading this book, but when Lucifer isn’t making matter worse, I enjoyed the moment that Cam and Lilith had together and those even include the moments when they were fighting. There is a spark between them and it just needed the right moment to click into place.

The ending is somewhat not something that expected, but at the same time, it seems to fit them. It also seemed like even if there is an ending that Lauren could maybe one day decide to add to their stories.

For my part, I wouldn’t mind that, but I would love to have a book about Arriane or Roland or anyone else. It would be nice to know what’s going on with everyone.

So overall, I really enjoyed the book, but I won’t lie; sometimes, it felt rushed but it was still enjoyable. And Cam was a lot more tamed in this which kind of sucked, because we all love our Cam the way he was in the Fallen series, but still, you have to love him still.

Review: Triple Moon by Melissa de la Cruz (Summer on East End, #1)

(from goodreads)

After they cause a terrible accident at their old high school, twin witches Mardi and Molly Overbrook are sent to live with their “aunt” Ingrid Beauchamp in North Hampton, on Long Island’s mist-shrouded East End. Because the twins cannot control their powers, their father begs Ingrid to tame them over the summer, before the White Council exiles the girls to Limbo.

Trouble continues to bubble and boil when the girls meet the younger Gardiner boys, who are just as handsome and sexy as their older kin. But all is not as it seems. As Ingrid helps the girls learn to control their magical impulses, Mardi and Molly have just this summer to figure out how to grow up, how to love, and how to be a family.

It took me a while to finish it. I gave up on it a while ago and started about a month and half later. I hated to do that to a book written by Melissa, but it just didn’t work for me. The first part that I read just kept going on and on about two girls whining about their lives and it just got on my nerves, but when I picked up again, it seemed like I had stopped at the moment it was getting better.

A lot more happen in the second half I started this book and I got hooked. When the truth was starting to come out and bad events kept occurring around town, things were getting more and more interesting. You just want to know what is actually going on. Some stuff that I connected together before the end, but there were still a few loose ends that I didn’t discover before the end of the book.

Molly was the twin that got most of my nerves and I don’t know why. Her and her sister were both equally whining about their lives, but there was just something that that bugged me about her. Maybe because she was a lot more princess than her sister in this book and I just couldn’t stand it, but she redeemed herself throughout the book.

Mardi, I liked a lot. Yes, she was whining like her sister, but she seemed way more laid back and she seemed to adjust to being there faster than Molly. Her attitude and the way she seemed to be made me like her faster than her twin.

Some romance does occur in this book, but it didn’t really make me swoon. I wouldn’t mind though a new book about them to lose myself in the romance, but for now, it just didn’t make me hooked on it. But I heard a rumor that there might be more books to follow so hopefully, I will get hooked more on them if it does happen :)

Finding Ingrid and Freya and that made me happy to see what was going on with them, but I feel like the magic the sisters usually bought to books wasn’t there as much, but I guess it’s because they weren’t the focus of the book.

I will admit that this book is my least favourite books from Melissa, but I still enjoyed it.

Review: Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder (Study #4)

(from goodreads)

New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder wowed readers with Poison Study, the unforgettable story of poison taster Yelena. Now she's back with a new tale of intrigue. 

Once, only her own life hung in the balance… 

Oddly enough, when Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. But she'd survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia. Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands—and protect her relationship with Valek. 

Suddenly, though, they are beset on all sides by those vying for power through politics and intrigue. Valek's job and his life are in danger. As Yelena tries to uncover the scope of these plots, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. She must keep that a secret—or her enemies will discover just how vulnerable she really is—while searching for who or what is responsible for neutralizing her powers. 

Yes, the days of tasting poisons were much simpler. And certainly not as dangerous…

I hate that it took me so long to finally read this book even though I know this series is so amazing, but I finally read it and now I’m a happy girl.

I won’t hide the fact that I was worried when I heard Maria was continuing the series. It’s not that I fear that it wouldn’t be good, but I have my couples and I didn’t want anything to happen to them so when the series was done, I could be breath of relief, but then, BAM, she continues and everything can happen.

But this first book of the renewal of the series just had everything that us fans of the series could enjoy. I won’t lie that sometimes, I didn’t know where to set my mind on. A lot was happening and a lot of things didn’t make sense until they did; I loved that. I seriously kept trying to solve their problems before they did and of course, my assumptions never seemed right most of the times. Whenever something was answered, I was more often than not, surprised.

Yelena and Valek. What do I have to say about them? I love them so much and even if they spent most of the book apart trying to solve the problems that were sent their way, I still love them. No matter what, their relationship is never the focus of the books, but it still reflects in everything they do without making us feel like they are over feeding us with their love. Does it make sense? Just read the book and you’ll know what I mean hahaha

Ari and Janco. God I love those guys. I was really happy we got Janco’s point of view in this book, but I wouldn’t mind having Ari’s point of view, but maybe in the next two books that could happen. Anyways, these two always make this book entertaining and I was happy to see them again.

Onora is a nice new addition to the story. I liked her personality and you have to love the banter between her and Janco. I don’t know if something could happen between these two but I would love it very much. I don’t know if I trust her completely, but she shows a lot of potential and I hope that she doesn’t do me wrong in the next books.

Enemies. Some old, some new and some unexpected. But any good hero needs an enemy or enemies or else, this wouldn’t be a Yelena & Valek’s adventure. Weirdly, I don’t know which one of these enemies is the worse at the moment.

And last but not least, the ending. Wow and that ending. Now, I just want the next book and see what will happen next. I need to know. So much could happen and it could take so many directions from there and I’m really curious to see how it will go. I hate that it’s a trilogy because it means we won’t have the ending of that series before 2017 and that alone could kill me.

Review: The Prophecy of Shadows by Michelle Madow (Elementals, #1)

(from goodreads)


When Nicole Cassidy moves from sunny Georgia to gloomy New England, the last thing she expects is to learn that her homeroom is a cover for a secret coven of witches. Even more surprisingly … she’s apparently a witch herself. Despite doubts about her newfound abilities, Nicole is welcomed into this ancient circle of witches and is bedazzled by their powers—and, to her dismay, by Blake—the school’s notorious bad-boy.

Girls who get close to Blake wind up hurt. His girlfriend Danielle will do anything to keep them away, even if she must resort to using dark magic. But the chemistry between Blake and Nicole is undeniable, and despite wanting to protect Nicole from Danielle’s wrath, he finds it impossible to keep his distance.

When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole, Blake, Danielle, and two others in their homeroom are gifted with mysterious powers. But the comet has another effect—it opens the portal to the prison world that has contained the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes and attacks Nicole and Blake, it’s up to them and the others to follow the clues from a cryptic prophecy so that they can save their town … and possibly the world.

I was really intrigued about this book and I was happy that I got the chance to read an advanced copy of it. Unfortunately, I was sort of disappointed with this book.

The idea was interesting, but it didn’t catch my attention at all. The characters didn’t do it for me. I couldn’t connect with them and they annoyed me so much. I’m not the kind of person who hates clichés or overused plots, but in this, I couldn’t help but cringe each time I saw one.

The main character was really the one who annoyed me the much. She was excelling at everything she was doing and it bugged me. Even if this is explained in some point of the book, I still felt like it was over the top. But it would have still been bearable if it wasn’t for her personality; it sometimes felt like all over the place. For example, she is attracted to a guy who already has a girlfriend and one minute, she’s like, I shouldn’t, but he talks to her and then it’s like who cares, I want to see him and know if he likes me or not. If that girl was my friend in real life, I would have probably slapped her a few times.

And the girlfriend is of course the meanest girl ever and that’s a cliché that really bugs me. I mean, couldn’t the guy have a girlfriend who is nice, but not made for him? We don’t need to hate the other girl to hope the main character to end up with him.

And I wish other characters caught my attention because it would probably make me want to read the next books in the series, but right now, I just don’t feel like it.

I know a lot of people love her books and maybe her writing and me won’t ever connect. Will it stop me from reading her other books? I don’t know. I ought to give a try to one of her other series and see if I would love them more, but this series isn’t for me.

Thank you NETGALLEY & BARCLAY PUBLICITY for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange of an honest opinion.

Review: Built by Jay Crownover (Saints of Denver, #1)

(from goodreads)

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes an electrifying new spin-off series,Saints of Denver, featuring all the characters fans have been dying to read about.

Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel.

Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn't matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn't return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior.

But just as things start to heat up, Zeb is blindsided by a life altering moment from his past. He needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. He can’t risk what’s at stake just because his attraction to Sayer feels all consuming. But as these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, battling together to save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide can no longer be ignored.Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller are as different as two people can be. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and kill it and grill it. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk while he’s denim and flannel.
The differences between the two of them don’t stop Zeb from dropping every hint he can think of that he would like to get to know her on a more personal level, but Sayer seems oblivious to his interest or is just too nice to tell him to take a hike. To Sayer, a guy like Zeb could never be interested in someone as reserved and boring as she is. She’s never been with anyone that was hot enough to melt the icy exterior she’s had wrapped around hera since her awful childhood. But what if Zeb is the one who might finally thaw her out…?

So it took me ten days to read it and it wasn't because this book wasn't good, but because I had to read it on my laptop since I didn't have any other way to read it and I couldn't read as often as I wanted to. Believe me, it killed me when I was at work and I just wanted to get home and read it.

I'm really grateful for the chance that I got to get to have my hands on this book before its release date and I hope my review will reflect it.

So where do I start with this review? There are so many things to say and yet, I feel like the words aren’t enough to express what I feel about this book, but I have to start somewhere, so let’s start with the characters.

A few years ago, guys who resemble Zeb wouldn’t have been the kind of guys that would attract me in general, but now, I rather find them attractive and I wanted a Zeb for me. His personality just made you melt whenever you read his point of view. It was nice to read more about what happened to him and how it reflected in his life. He is such a family man and the way he loves Sayer will make you swoon from the beginning to the end.

Now Sayer. What do I say about her? I really wanted to hit her from time to time for being so clueless about just how awesome she was. It wasn’t because she was trying to get pity or compliments, but because she actually believed she wasn’t worth the love of a good man and it hurt me to see her like this, but in this book, you see how she grows into being the woman she really is and you can just be happy to read about her journey.

This pairing is probably one of my favourites in all of Jay’s worlds combined. Even if their worlds are different, they come together beautifully. It’s not a pairing like the bad boy/good girl that many people would come to believe if they only judged by the way the both look, but they are both such good people that it was only a matter of time before they found one another.

I’m really happy that Jay made this spin-off because there were quite a few characters that I hope we’ll get to read about in the next books. Jay has created a world where you just want to be part of and I’m happy that she continues their journey.

And if you miss your Marked men, Jay does bring them into this book too. Yes, they are not the main focus, but we do get to see where their story is at now.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO JAY CROWNOVER, HARPERCOLLINS AND EDELWEISS for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.

Recap: Book Event (Yallfest 2015)


In November, I went to Charleston to go to the Yallfest along with my friend Nancy. It's been a while and I've been trying to finish this since I came back from Yallfest, but I never came around to finish it. I'll try to remember as much as I can. The beginning might be more precise because it was done right after, but as I go on, I might forget some things so forgive me :)

So, we left on Thursday morning (November 12, 2015), drove all day until we reached Virginia (I need to remember you all that we left from Montreal) to sleep and left on Friday morning until we reached Charleston in the afternoon.

And it was warm and sunny and just a wonderful weather. Need proof?

So first thing first, we found a parking and then we went looking for the Library to get Richelle Mead's wristband that was going to allow us to have one book signed. We were kind of bummed that we wouldn't get to get books signed on Saturday because you had to be at the Keynote to get a book signed, but we still had Friday and we intended to get our book signed.

When we got there, there was a really huge line and we weren't sure if the whole line was for Richelle or for Leigh Bardugo who was signing at the same place or a mixed of both. In the end, we ended up going in line and waited. Maybe 10-15 minutes later, a lady started distributing the wristbands and I won't lie, I was scared that she would stop before us and we wouldn't get one, but we did and then, we left to see other authors and come back for when Richelle was going to sign.

We tried to get a wristband for Veronica Roth, but they were gone before we even arrived in Charleston so we would have to wait for the next day. While being in that part of the signing, we started our book event with Victoria Aveyard. I will admit that I bought her book even if I had only read 3 chapters so far, but I could tell it was really promising. So we waited and luck was even on our side, she started earlier than 3pm (or it seemed like it) and the line was moving quickly. In that line, we were giving a Bingo card that if you succeeded to fill a line or completely, prizes could be won. Then, I was determined to get it as completed as I could (and that changed the name day when I forgot my card in the car and wasn't bothered to go and get it lol). So finally, it's our turn to go see Victoria and she was really so sweet and you can tell that she was really happy to meet each and everyone coming to see her. She was adorable and I really hope success doesn't change her. And so I got to take a picture with her which was awesome because last year, I didn't get the chance to take many pictures due to me being sick so I wanted to take every picture I could.

After that, we walked towards where Melissa de la Cruz and Margaret Stohl were signing. On the way, we crossed path with Veronica Roth who was on her way to her own signing. I won't lie, I might have thought to stop her and asked her to sign our books but I knew she was already late and I'm sure Nancy had the same thought (honestly, I'm just not sure whether or not we told each other that or not.). So we went two put ourselves in lines. Nancy went for Melissa while I waited in line for Margaret. While she was in line for Melissa, we got to see someone we met at last Year's Yallfest, Sophie. She and her friends also drove all the way from Quebec to go there. 

Nancy quickly rejoined me in Margaret's line when she was done with signing our books and while there was no one for Melissa de la Cruz, I went to see her and asked for a picture. Here's the result (pictures with a table between people aren't always flattering for the person in front lol (in that case, me lol)):

So I went back in line for Margaret and got my books signed and of course, I asked for a picture with her and she seemed to be hesitant at first, but she finally said yes and we took a selfie together. She's also obviously proud of how popular Yallfest is getting each and every new year it happens and she asks us about who we are excited to meet and if we're enjoying ourselves, etc. So, want to see the selfie? No, well, sorry, you're still going to see it :P

After that, we went back to the Library to meet with Richelle Mead and we arrived just in time because there was no one left and she was on her way to leave, but it was nice because we got to talk a lot with her and she was so nice. She even signed the graphic novels that Nancy had thought to bring with her even if the limit was one book per person. I'll admit that I wished that I had the same idea. So, I was of course going to take a picture with her because she is seriously one of my favourite authors. I feel like a giant next to her, but oh well, I can't change it hahaha:

After that, we walked back to where most of the signings were to go see Kiera Cass. The line was the longest we had that day and we were lucky because we were among the last ones she got to signed books for on that day, but she was really nice and she was telling people that if they saw her on the streets, they could come up to her and get their books signed or pictures taken. I seriously adore her. She's simply that sweet. So I got my books signed and picture taken. Told her also that I would try to go and see her in Montreal at the Salon du Livre de Montréal that was being held the week after Yallfest.

Then, we went to buy some marchandise at the Tent and I bought myself the tote bag and a bottle (which I'll admit I haven't used yet, but I will :)) and while we were there, we ran into Kami Garcia and she was looking for her kids, but she took the time to take selfies with us, so here's a picture of the two of us:

So that's what happened on Friday. After that, we went to the hotel, relaxed a little bit and then went to get dinner, got back to the hotel and pretty much just relaxed the rest of the evening because we would need it for the next day.

On Saturday, we woke up early and made our way back to the Yallfest for the whole day. It was actually quite colder than I expected that morning and I'll admit that I could have used a coat, but I didn't feel like going to get it, so I kept on being cold hahaha We waited in a line to get our bracelet for Veronica Roth, but it was kind of mixed with those going to the Key Note. Eventually, we were separated in two lines and we finally got our bracelets for Veronica.

After that, Nancy went to wait in line for Marie Lu because she didn't want to miss her this year and I went in line for Carrie Ryan. While I was there, talked to a few people and even made a girl happy when I offered her to take her book to sign for Carrie because the line for Marissa Meyer was already really long and she was scared she wouldn't get her books signed. She eventually came back in line when someone guarded her place in the other line. Carrie Ryan arrived and I was happy because it was cold and I needed to move hahaha She was really sweet and after getting the books signed for me and Nancy, I got to take my picture with her (I look weird on this, but oh well):

I also ran back into Sophie and we talked a little and she introduced me to her friends Stéphanie who had seen last year also and Aude who was new to the Yallfest experience. From there, we decided to help each other for the authors we had in common.

So after getting my books signed by Carrie and got my books signed, me and Stephanie went together to see Brendan Reichs which was where Nancy was waiting in line for Marie Lu. We gave Nancy Stephanie's book for Marie Lu in case she didn't get to see her while we went inside to meet Brendan. He was really nice and I asked him when he was going to come back to Montreal, which he seemed to agree that he should do soon, so crossing fingers for all the Virals lovers of Quebec. 

He was sitting next to Richelle Mead and while she signed books for those who had bracelets and she was giving samples of her next books and I was able to get one for Nancy and me with the help of Stephanie who already had hers the previous night. Yes, I was multi-tasking.

After the books were signed by Brendan, I asked for a picture:

After that, I went to see Julie Kagawa and Kami Garcia who were both signing at the same place. Aude had kept us a spot in Julie's line and I was watching people getting in line for Kami. So while Aude was gone in another line, we got someone to keep an eye on our stuff while I was getting in line for Kami. I seriously love people at Yallfest because everyone seems to be willing to help out others or I'm just lucky that I got to meet the people who do want to be helpful. So I spent my time waiting going from line to line.

Julie Kagawa arrived first and so a lady was nice enough to keep my spot in line for Kami while I went back to Julie's because Aude wasn't back yet so I was pushing my stuff and hers through the line. So people were nice enough to take some books for me because the limit was three with her Aude's book, I was like 2 books over. But, we seemed to get luck on our side and Aude got back just in time to get her books signed. 

While getting mine signed, I reminded her of her the first time we met her which was last May she seemed to remember me and Nancy's long piles of books and how many time we had to come back to get all of them signed (or she was nice enough to pretend she did remember, who knows lol). Picture was of course a must and I like this one even if it's over the table.

After that, I got back in line for Kami Garcia and the lady who was there was nice enough to wait because her daughter had gotten her books signed both my Margaret Stohl and Kami while she was in line for Margaret and she just waited for me to return. I was really grateful for that. Nancy was still in line for Marie Lu and I was really hoping she would arrive soon because I didn't have her books with me. As I approach the table more and more, I let a few people pass before me to give Nancy a chance to arrive. She finally did and she even took one of my books to get it signed since I had four and she only had two. Kami was still really nice and I asked her for another picture and she agreed:

So Nancy told me she got all of her books signed by Richelle Mead because everyone who had a bracelet for that day had passed so she got to get all of her books signed, so while she went to see our next author, I went back to Richelle Mead and got all of my books signed (well, I did forget a few, but still, she signed a lot of them) and she was even nice because she let me run back to my car to go get some more and I ran so fast hoping to get back in time and I did. She even asked me if we had arrived like at 3am because we had an amazing parking spot (which was just on the other side of the street). I didn't get a picture that time, but let's say, it was for the best, I didn't look that great after running.

So next was Veronica Roth. Nancy was already there and I just joined her up there. The line wasn't really long, but she was sweet because she took the time to talk to everyone and take pictures. Last year, we could only get one book signed with no pictures, but this year, we could get three books signed. I only had two, but I got my best friend's book signed as well since she had missed her last year. When it came my turn, she seemed happy to see a french version of her book (my friend's book).

After that, Nancy gave me her books for the next two authors was going to see for us while she went to see Kody Keplinger and then went in line for Rachel Caine.

The next author for me was Zac Brewer. Nancy and I had both brought our copies of Foretold where he wrote a short story for. He told me that this story was actually inspired by the song Misery by Green Day which I will listen to again and re-read the story at the same time.

After him, I went to wait in line for David Levithan. At first, I was alone and just tried to stay up on my feet, but I was failing at that, but Stéphanie or Sophie or Aude, I will honest, I can't remember which one of them noticed me standing alone and invited me to join them. Stéphanie was also in line for David and she was closer to me while Sophie and Aude were in line for Danielle Paige. And while we were in line, there was this game where you turned the wheel and would win the book it landed on and I went after Stéphanie convinced me to go and got myself a ARC :D

After that, we got and got our books signed by David. He was just so happy and nice and I really liked him. I might not have enjoyed his Every Day series as much I wished I did, but perhaps, I shall read his other books and hope that maybe one of them will call to me :)

So Aude and I then left Sophie and Stéphanie to go join Nancy for Rachel Caine. She was like the fourth or fifth in line. So we chatted or read and waited to get inside. While we were waiting in line, I asked Aude if she could take one book from me and Nancy each since she only had one, but Nancy said that she ought to take two of mine since I brought more and if I could get four books signed, that she could get her four signed too. It turned out, I didn't need the help. Once we got inside, I tried to get four of them signed and told her that I actually had a lot more but would re-do the line for it and she was like: "I can sign all of them quickly!" and so she did. I even went back to my car because I noticed I missed some books. She was really really nice and sweet and she even offered me to send me the DVD of the Morgaville Vampires for free and she did. I received a few weeks ago and she even sent me a copy for Nancy :D

Meanwhile, Nancy had gotten our books signed by Katie McGarry, but I went back to the tent in hope to catch her for a picture and I really caught her at the moment she was leaving. A woman nearly stopped me, but when I told her that my book was signed and I just wanted a picture, she let me through and Katie was just nice enough to take a picture with me.

So that pretty much wraps us the Yallfest weekend. We said goodbye to our new friends and left that night to go back to Virginia and then drove all day Sunday to get back home, which me and Nancy were pretty grateful for.

So want to see what I got signed this weekend? Here's a visual of it:

So you finally have it. It's sort of late, but hopefully, you will still enjoy reading it :)
