Outlander Series (Voyager + Drums of Autumn)

Diana Gabaldon

I should probably start off with Voyager, and I will try to look pass the things that I did not enjoy.

I read it fast and not just because it was the first book in this series where I already knew what would happen, but because I read as fast as I could over the parts where Claire was on her own.

Spoilers ahead if you have not read these 2 books, so kindly stop if you have not read.

Male characters in books 2.0

Alright so here’s the problem when you are a booklover, bookworm, bookfanatic, whatever you want to call it… you end up having a lot of boys and sometimes girls in your life; because the more you read, the more you have characters to add to a never-ending list of fictional characters to love from many books in different genres.

A long time ago, there was this post I wrote about Books and Characters competition and it was good and all, but you see since then there have been so many other books and hence many main characters that have come to my attention, which I can’t put here because it will be the longest list…. Well not the longest that would be in like in a year or more from now when I read even more and have other amazing characters to talk about.

 

But going back to the present, and why I am rambling here today… I thought it will be nice to have a little reminder of some of the characters so far; you might not agree, you might think that I am wrong or crazy but it is my list after all and perhaps you will discover we have similar taste in books.

Q & A with Shannon Thompson

Author of Take Me Tomorrow

Special Edition of Books Everywhere (EachPage) Blog

Hello, everyone. Today I bring to you a special post with a Q&A about Take Me Tomorrow and plus some interesting details about its author, awesome Shannon Thompson, who was nice enough to respond to my ramblings about the book, which if you haven’t read please go here and found out more, or read the review I made couple of days ago, right here. If you haven’t read the book, I strongly recommend that you do not read the upcoming lines because it may contain some spoiler. That’s it, let us start.

Q&A Take Me Tomorrow

  • I am sure you’ve been asked this but, is there going to be a sequel?

Author: There is a sequel – Take Me Yesterday – as well as a third novel – Take Me Now – written, but neither have guaranteed contracts to be published. Sharing the novel around by reviewing it helps out a lot!

  • Tell me, what inspired you to write about Take Me Tomorrow?

Author: Long story short, my mother was a drug addict, and she died from her addiction when I was eleven years old. Through coping, I spent a lot of time researching about drugs, drug use, drug abuse, and more. Take Me Tomorrow was born. If you want the long story, I wrote more about this on my website: Why I Write About Immigration, Drugs, and Addiction

I encourage you to visit the link and learn more.

  • How you came up with the name ‘Noah’, did it just pop in your head or is there a special meaning?

Author: Noah does, in fact, have a special meaning, and it would be explained in the sequel. But here’s a BIG hint: it has to do with this quote from Take Me Tomorrow, I was wrong about him. He hadn’t grown into the forest. He had come out of the water.

  • A main thing about the Drug, did Noah really prevent Sophie from dying?

Author: Take Me Yesterday, the sequel, would explain that, but for now, it is a mystery. That being said, yes, she should’ve died and didn’t. The question of “why” was left open-ended.

  • The effects or rather the events foresighted with Tomo can be stopped? Or is it just Sophie?

Author: Eek. I love these guesses, and I wish I could say more so badly, but you are onto something!

  • Are all of these questions going to be answered on a sequel? And hence you won’t really tell me much?

Author: All of the questions above will be answered in Take Me Yesterday. The sequel also adds some depth about the history of all of the characters – including Lyn and Broden and even Noah. While Take Me Tomorrow is focused on what the future will be like, Take Me Yesterday is quite the opposite. You will also get to leave the Topeka Region. But I promise there’s a plan. As Noah says, “I have a plan, you know. I’ve always had a plan.”

  • How was the world before the massacre? There are bits and pieces in the book but how was it truly?

Take Me Tomorrow

By Shannon Thompson

​“Tomorrow can take me.”​ Truest words spoken and we knew it was getting good.

Take Me Tomorrow a truly different twist in the dystopian category.

The Book

Let it be known, I am not encouraging drug use because we all know that’s bad, but wouldn’t we want to take a pill that would show you the future? Or at the very least, a glimpse of it?

I confess at first it took me something to get a move on, meaning I had other books in mind and didn’t read a lot of this one but after some time it really started to grasp my attention and I became a bit addicted to it, I wanted to know once and for all what the heck was going on.
Shannon Thompson truly knows how to keep you in suspense, and even though you think you know what’s going to happen or if you guessed something, there’re other moments in the book where you say: What The F…?????

I have to say that dystopian novels are not my first choice when it comes to reading or writing, and perhaps that’s why it took me a while to finish the book but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t good because it is. And when you get it for free as in, a gift from the author and a request to make a review then you feel kind of on a cloud, hey! for me it was a big deal. So thank you for asking Shannon, I truly enjoyed reading about a cute Guy with some trouble and a female character that didn’t make me want to get my hand inside the screen of my phone and shake her.

Sophia

Like I just said, one of the few heroine who doesn’t take Sh*** from anyone and she kicks ass… from the start. Let’s be honest most of the women in this era of books, or the YA and of the sort, go through 3000 things before they realise, they have to fend for themselves and not make gooey eyes and think of themselves as un-pretty, hey, tell me it doesn’t make you want to screen in frustration? If the answer is no, then you’re lying.

Some spoiler from here on… read if you have already read T.M.T

A Dance with Dragons

A Song Of Ice and Fire #5

By George R. R. Martin

Since we are not getting A Song of Ice and Fire #6The Winds of Winter anytime soon, I might as well write about A Dance with Dragons, which is my favourite book so far in this saga. Especially because of Dany.

On that note, I love this one. It is quite interesting to say the least. If you are mainly a fan on the HBO Tv Series, then good for you that’s nice. However, the books? What can I say? I have a freaking page in this blog solely dedicated to it, doesn’t that say how awesome they are? I confess I started reading the books after season one of GOT but come on, you see the series you go running face first into the books and then… nothing, you stay in limbo because Mr Martin haven’t published the 6th book.

Let us talk about the 5th one, which at least we have read or intent to, thinking about it. You must be thinking about if you are here or you have already spent hours… your eyes burning with exhaustion… shadows under your eyes, while you focus on this book… It has so many little details you end up something like this:
