Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.

Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone—one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship —tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn’t do something soon, her parents will be next.

Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed’s hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there’s only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

How I became a Fangirl

Aloha guys!
So today I have another topic than books.Well it’s related to books because fandoms not only exist for bands or TV shows. Fandoms exist actually everywhere, they exist for certain books, or youtubers or movies.
I also became part of many (too many?) fandoms and turned more and more into a giant monster of fangirl feels. Okay that>’s maybe a bit exaggerated but I became a fangirl as others before me. Before I even knew something like that existed.

Disney Book Tag!

Aloha guys!
So today, I discovered the Disney book tag and, me as a total Disney fanatic, had to do it!
I am not quite sure but I think the tag was created by Katytastic on YouTube. I love her videos you should check her out!

  • 1. The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”
    For this I’ll have to go with Katniss in Catching fire. She is forced into fancy clothes and she has to act for the Capitol to be one of them.
  • Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation
    Totally Day from Legend. In the beginning of the book, he is the most wanted criminal and throughout the books everything changes for him.
  • Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters
    Definitely have to go with the cast of Six of Crows! I never was so entertained by characters of a book!
  • Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep
    Love Rosie…. Yeah wasn’t really my cup of tea. And the movie was sooo much better! I think it’s also because the whole book is written in letters and messages and so on. There wasn’t really a plot and I also couldn’t relate to the characters as much as in the movie.
  • Beauty and the Beast – A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful
    I was extremely intimidated by Outlander (by Diana Gabaldon). I read this book in  German and it has more than 1000 pages! I’m still reading it but I’m not intimidated anymore because the love story is so beautiful!
  • The Lion King – a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood
    This has to be Cinder from the Lunar Chronicles.
    But let’s be honest, what character didn’t have something traumatic happen to them?
  • Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse
    I actually haven’t read a book, that would suit here 😀
  • Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not
    Daemon Black from the Lux series. Can’t say much here 😀
    SPOILER :
    He pretends to be human but we all know he’s not. Besides that, he’s to hot to be human. Okay just kidding 😀
  • Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life
    I’ll have to go with the whole Shadowhunter universe. how cool would it be if the shadowhunters and downworlders would exist?
  • Disney Descendants – your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character
    The whole group of Kaz Brekker’s crew from Six of Crows. They are just awesome!
