In A Nut Shell
This was a fantastic ending to this amazing series! I held off on this book for so long because I was afraid of how it would end, and I wasn't ready for this story to be over. I hate that I waited so long to read this book I feel like I truly cheated myself. This book had my heart racing just as much as the first book, if not more. This series truly is one of the most constantly amazing series. I HIGHLY recommend this series for women and men. If you are wanting to get your boyfriend, friend, hubby into reading then this is the series to get them. Mine finished before me he couldn't put them down!

 
 

He is a Legend.

She is a Prodigy.

Who will be Champion?

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps-Elect, while Day has been assigned a high-level military position.

But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them: just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything.

With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.
 
 
Oh my gosh this book was everything! I was terrified to read this book with how Prodigy ended, and I just couldn't pick up Champion for the longest time. I was BEYOND tore up after Prodigy and I just wasn't ready. I remember my husband sat there and watched me finish Prodigy (he had already finished and wanted to see my reaction.) I moved the book AWAY from me like it burnt me and just kept shaking my head and crying. DO NOT JUDGE ME!!!! I am so emotionally connected to these characters. I waited A LONG time to read this book, and I really feel like I cheated myself in waiting so long. Yes this book made me cry but oh my gosh I really forgot how amazing Marie Lu's writing is. She truly makes you feel like you are in the story. Your mind NEVER wonders off in this book because she doesn't give your mind time to. This book was everything that made me love this series. Action packed, emotional, raw, and unpredictable. If you are like me and have not read Champion yet bite the bullet and go for it. I know you may be scared because Marie Lu is not afraid to take chances and well lets be honest she does some crazy heartbreaking things that we didn't see coming, but isn't that one reason that we love reading her books in ways? The not knowing what is going to happen is kind of half the fun, and is one of the reasons you cannot put her books down. This book was beautiful and one crazy ride that I don't regret taking.
 
So tell me, did you guys have to wait to read this book after Prodigy? Did you react to Prodigy as bad as I did? (Probably not I know I have problems.) Were you happy with Champion and the ending we got for this amazing series? Share your thoughts down below =)
Happy reading Ya'll

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
