Review of We Were Liars By e. lockhart

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

18339662

Review: The only thing I heard before reading this book was that it was really good and that something big happens.

It took me a week to read the book because I kept getting lost and it was not that interesting. At the beginning…

You have to sit down and read the book till your done, no breaks! This seems like the best way to get through the book interested and knowing what’s going on and who is who. I think I might be the first that kept getting the past and present mixed up. Heck! I thought the point of view was from a guy at first!

Anyway toward the end of the book you will finally figure out what happened and what’s going on.

Not really.

Because the end is ( my brain blew up here). You  have to read to find out and then you will feel bad for how you have been thinking about the characters and of the book. There will also be some shock mixed in there too.

Have fun reading! ha!

Review of Naruto Chapter 700

Naruto chapter 700 page 1

NARUTO CHAPTER 700

Review: If you have not read chapter 699 and 700, you need too. But also because there will be spoilers throughout this review, this is your only warning.

Alright now that that’s out of the way, I will say that it was very hard for me to read this chapter because other than its the last one I will ever read. It was because I kept crying at every page I saw, I still do. I’m not the most emotional person, I don’t like crying, its weird. But for Naruto and the gang, I was and still am, a blubbering fool.

Its very hard to review this last chapter to an amazing life long story, of a young boy who was up to no good. But the last chapter starts the same way, a young boy up to no good with the same yellow hair and whiskers on his face.

I know that many fans were and are still very upset with Kishimoto for ending the last chapter with everyone getting together, having kids and  peace in the world. I am not one of these fans. Yes, the ending did feel hurried, yes I am still wondering what happened to some characters ( Orochimaru, the rest of Sasuke’s Hawk team, and Yamato). I mean really we saw them alive at the end of the war in chapter 699, I’m still surprised that Yamato is alive because its been like what 3 years since we have seen him in the manga?

BUT! I’m all good with these questions and how the manga ended. Because I feel and think that it is very disrespectful that people are hatting on the manga and Kishimoto for how he ended things.

The best part of the last chapter… THE KIDS!!!!! My god are they the cutest things you have ever seen! ugh, I love how fans are already flocking to them and shipping them together! I just really love how they are so much like their parents. You know who I’m talking about….

Another great part to me of the chapter was  the couples that fans have shipped for years are FINALLY CANON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!10488290_315852161945468_8675756360804941829_n

Naruto and Hinata = Bolt ( BO-RU-TO) ( a boy) and Himawari ( Sunflower) (a girl)

Sasuke and Sakura = Salad  (a girl)( yes that is really her name, but don’t worry I have no doubts that Sasuke and Sakura will have a boat load of more kids) Also just because she has glasses does not mean that she is Karin’s daughter with Sasuke, because come on guys he is not that stupid.

Shikamaru and Temari = Shikadia ( just like his dad, its so funny!) ( a boy)

Ino and Sai = Inojin ( a little creepy) ( a girl)

Choji and Karui  = Chouchou ( Butterfly) ( a girl)

Lee and ? = A boy that looks just like lee ( there is no name for the child or any indication on who the  mother is)

so yup.

 

We also get to see some of our favorites all grown up and their children they left behind. I think you all know who I’m talking about.

Oh and of course I would like to address the bad comments about Naruto and Sasuke being bad dads, I mean really!? They both had a tough time growing up and were alone. Just because they are not with their child every second of the day does not make them bad. In my opinion I think that they would be the best dads ever because of how they grew up. So shame on the fans who think that they are bad dads.

I think the only things I have left to say now is……

THANK YOU NARUTO!!!!! AND THANK YOU KISHIMOTO!!!!!

Oh and also I would like to say I cant wait for the spin off series about Naruto’s son Bolt. I have only read this chapter with him in it but I love him already and ship him with Salad.

just kidding I would not leave you guys hanging without seeing this

Manga Monday! # 18 – Review of Punch! by Rie Takada

Punch!, Vol. 1 (Punch! #1)  by Rie Takada

321722

Review: I just love Takada’s books. She does a great job with plot and artwork. I almost have all of her book now!

Anyway, Punch is another short romance fluff. Which is not such a bad thing because it does not take that much time to read and its fun and funny.

3 out of 5 stars.

1-3 volumes.

Review of Falling into Place By Amy Zhang

Falling into Place by Amy Zhang

20306804

Review: Not sure how to review this one, I’ll tell you…

It took me awhile to get hooked into the book, but after getting over the imperfect main characters, and figuring out who got the main view point, was great. After reading into the middle of the book I could not put it down.

The best part of the book was how real it was. There was no little miss perfect and her friends, or a really mean girl that you can’t stand. Well maybe a little of mean girl you can’t stand….

But as soon as you hit this point where you start to care for the main character, not because she’s the main character. But because you can see a little of yourself in her or that she was faced with the same things you were faced with growing up. You might even see that Liz had to make the same choices you had to make before or are still making. You might just see that you both chose different, or that you chose the same path.

From this you get to see the real part of the book itself. Not all that fantasy stuff were true love prevails and everything in the world is right. Because you know what it’s not, and Zhang does an amazing job showing us that through Falling into Place.

4 out of 5 stars.

304 pages.

Young Adult. Contemporary. Realistic Fiction. Hard Back.

Published by Greenwillow Books.

 

Summary: On the day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton’s laws of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road.

Why? Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? Vividly told by an unexpected and surprising narrator, this heartbreaking and nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian High’s most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn’t understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn’t understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect? Amy Zhang’s haunting and universal story will appeal to fans of Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman, and Jay Asher.

Review of Naruto chapter 699

Naruto

Review of chapter 699: Ugh, nope. I still don’t want to write this post. My reason why is because than its over. I really don’t want it to be.

Anyway chapter 699-The whole chapter is from Sasuke’s point of view. Which is pretty cool because throughout the whole series he barley talks or reflects on his life. The only we readers get from him is Revenge! Blah!

But it was really great to see from his view point. We also get to see how he and Naruto are dealing with losing their arms. It seems that Sasuke want to keep it as is and Naruto gets some sort of replacement. Which is good. I think Sasuke didn’t want to get an arm because he felt that if he get it he would do bad all over again and have the power overtake him.

We also get to see some faces that we have not seen for years, because we were in other areas of the battle. We get to see everyone go home and have a funeral for Neji. Still sad about that.

Spoilers!!!!!!!

Also we learn that Kakashi Hatake becomes that next Hokage ( The 5th). Which is ok, because Naruto still needs to learn something’s become that next step. Even though I’m still a little ticked about it. This in turn means that he was able to pardon Sasuke. Then Sasuke leaves again, but will come home this time because he just wants to see the world without bias eyes. The only thing I was doing at this time was yelling thank god that he is back to normal! Whoo!

Sakura does try to go with him but he pokes her in the forehead like his brother did to him and told her “I’ll see you when I get back”. Word by word I kid you not. Although this was as close as we will see Sasuke give affection! I’m still shipping Sasuke and Sakura!!!! All the way…

Then lastly the moment before he leaves we get to see a nice moment between him and Naruto and his old headband. Yup.

I know that many feel that the ending was rushed but guys the war has been going on for years. Not in  the manga ( its only been about a day) but to the readers it has been a long ass arc. I do feel that some things we left out but its ok as long as the Last movie and chapter 700 fills in the blanks.
