Favorite Chapters #3

I recently read these. Clockwork Collar and Mara Dyer were for the yearly TBR and also the color parade in the former case. I gave Clockwork Collar and The Book Thief four stars. Whereas Mara Dyer got 5 stars.

    

I had had The Book Thief in my TBR for such a long time and then the movie recently came out and I wanted to see it and so i finally read the book so i could see the movie. I liked the book but i still got bored while i was reading it. I loved how Liesel was with the books- when she first saw the library it was how i am in the library or the book store. I loved the writing in this one. Some really wonderful passages. And I will admit I didn't cry during the book but i did feel my heart clench at that last passage with Death and his last words were haunting. (pun intended??) I highlighted so many scenes. I wish I had seen the movie first though. I think I would have seriously enjoyed this book more then. I liked Death in this one. And poor Rudy. I felt the book was veryy long. I was so glad I was done with it. My exact rating is 3.75 stars which rounds up to four stars.

The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is the second book in the Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross. I freaking love this genre. I love the covers and the titles in this series. I am glad I am following this series. They are filled with steampunk element obviously eheh and with kick-ass female leads. I had read the first book back in 2012 believe so I remembered stuff but things were a bit hazy. I caught on stuff once I progressed with the story. I like the fact that these books are action packed and fast paced. I don't really like Griffin and or Jack. But I think I like Griffin more than I like Jack. I like Finley and poor Mei. It would be cool lol Jasper got a team as well. I liked him in this one quite much. Sam and Emily were a pleasure as always. That whole Aether monster thingy was really cool. I cant wait to find more about this whole scene.

I have been wanting to read Mara Dyer for such a long time but I was putting it off. Well, I finally read it and I couldn't stop. This book was such a page turner. At first I didn't like the fact that Noah Shaw was British. Well, anyway, I started falling for him slowly as he came more and more into the picture. I loved the ending. All I can say is I am ready for more Mara Dyer. This book had my gasping many a times. I liked how Mara was losing it. Poor Mara. When the crazy stuff was happening it was just damn crazy but I love the normal moments Mara could manage to get. My heart goes out for her. Get on with this series if you haven't already. I have so many fav passages in this one.
