In A Nut Shell
This sequel was AMAZING I couldn't put it down. I have nothing bad to say about this book. If you are worried about this book not being as good as the first one do not worry! I was blown away by all the dark twists and turns this book took. Penryn Steps up her game and some how becomes even more fierce in this book. We get to learn more about Raffe's history as well as other characters> No rock is left uncovered in this sequel and it is so refreshing. The questions we had at the end of Angelfall were answered, and Ee gave us more questions to ponder over while waiting for the next and final book. I am beyond shocked with how creative Susan Ee is and what a page turner this book was for me.

 
 
In this sequel to the bestselling fantasy thriller, Angelfall, the survivors of the angel apocalypse begin to scrape back together what's left of the modern world.

When a group of people capture Penryn's sister Paige, thinking she's a monster, the situation ends in a massacre. Paige disappears. Humans are terrified. Mom is heartbroken.

Penryn drives through the streets of San Francisco looking for Paige. Why are the streets so empty? Where is everybody? Her search leads her into the heart of the angels' secret plans where she catches a glimpse of their motivations, and learns the horrifying extent to which the angels are willing to go.

Meanwhile, Raffe hunts for his wings. Without them, he can't rejoin the angels, can't take his rightful place as one of their leaders. When faced with recapturing his wings or helping Penryn survive, which will he choose?
 
I cannot get over how blown away I am by this series. Like I have said before this book is so dark and I don't normally enjoy these types of books but Susan Ee does not give you a choice she MAKES you become intrigued by this world. There were so many questions answered in this book and I felt like every unanswered question was answered which I was Beyond happy about. I hate when there are unanswered questions in the first book, and the answers are not answered until the LAST book. Which sometimes makes the last book too overwhelming. Ee did a fantastic job with answering our questions and then giving us more to ponder about. Am I the only one that appreciates when authors do that? I feel like we get a better understanding of Raffe and his way of life. We also get to see more of the other angles and understand their thoughts and belief system. This book was just so fantastic I cannot help but gush over it!!!!! I am beyond ready for the next and final book!
 
So tell me, did ya'll love think this book was as good as the first? How about how she answered most of the questions we all had at the end of Angelfall in World After instead of waiting till the last book to answer all the questions at once? Share all your thoughts in the comments 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…
