Synopsis from Goodreads: Evie's paranormal past keeps coming back to haunt her. A new director at the International Paranormal Containment Agency wants to drag her back to headquarters. The Dark Faerie Queen is torturing humans in her poisonous realm. And supernatural creatures keep insisting that Evie is the only one who can save them from a mysterious, perilous fate.

The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its fate rests solely in Evie's hands.

So much for normal.

My Thoughts:
When asked what my favourite books are, often some of the first books that pop into my head are the Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White. These books are AWESOME, and I couldn't wait to get my greedy little paws wrapped around my copy of Endlessly so that I could find out how Evie and Lend's awesome story would end. And even though it took me about two weeks to read (with a holiday in between), it did not disappoint at all. It had everything I hoped it would have, and it was perfect.

As usual, Evie was what carried the story for me. She continued to make me laugh just as she had in the two previous books, and I literally laughed out loud in some parts, which I try not to do in public because I get funny looks ;P She's sarcastic, sassy and one of the most entertaining female protagonists I've ever read about. You know that question: 'Which characters would you like to go to dinner with?'? Evie will always, I think, be top of my list.

The character that stood out to me most though in this book, a lot more so than in the others, was Reth. I'd always thought he was a little a bit annoying, very arrogant, and only constantly saying that he loved Evie because then he could try to get her to do what he wanted. I guess I never really realised, because of everything Evie always says about him, is that he does actually care, and he does have a heart, and the end of this book nearly made me burst into tears. He really seemed to care about Evie in this book and he was kind and he helped her, and then his dreams are shattered and the moment he realises that, he just seems so vulnerable and sad and it was actually heart breaking...

The plot, as per usual with this series, never stopped moving. The characters hop from Earth to the Faerie Paths and then to the Faerie Realms, sometimes in the Seelie court, and other, more sinister times, into the Unseelie court, which keeps you hooked as you try and figure out what on earth is going on. There's fighting, there's kissing, there are curses, there are heart breaking and tear-jerking moments. It has something to suit everybody, and add in some particular 'wow' moments (*hint* towards the end) and there's a perfect balance of action, romance and emotion to keep you reading for literally hours on end.

I don't really think there's much else I can say. I feel like I haven't said that much, but I can't fault it. Maybe I'm blinded by my love for the series, or maybe it is just the best book ever, but seriously, Endlessly was bloody amazing. Absolutely fan-freaking-tastic. If you haven't read them yet, you must acquire a copy (I recommend buying) and read them. Now. I simply cannot recommend it enough - especially if you're on the look out for a light-hearted, funny, YA series with a kick-ass heroine and a sparkly pink taser to match.

*Huge thanks to HarperCollins Children's and netGalley for allowing me access to this galley! In no way has this affected my opinion of the book.

  1. Haha!! Loved that last line about Evie's pink taser! No, sparkly, pink taser!!

    I have this on my TBR mountain and look forward to reading it! Glad the series ended on a good note!! Looking forward to seeing what Reth does that redeems him, or lets us see him in a different light!

    Might have to move this up on my never ending TBR mountain!

    Once again, awesome review!

  2. yay! This book/series was fabulous. I haven't re-read my copy yet, but I definitely plan to (and I'm not a big re-reader).

Synopsis from Goodreads:Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in the right direction. But with social media…

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files!


I'm going to try and keep it non-spoilery but be cautious if you've only read Illuminae and/or Gemina
THE FACTS: Series title: The Illuminae Files
Series authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Rock the Boat
Series completion date: 13th March, 2018

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results…
