Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Publication: March 8, 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Adventure
Goodreads Summary

She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there's nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can't wait to escape from.

Destined to wind up "wed or dead," Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagi…

Weekly Recap #1

Image
Hey guys, I know I haven't posted much and I'm totally sorry about that. But it was totally worth it because it gave me time to read a lot of great books aaand binge watch Asian drama's that I've been missing out on and putting off for quite some time. But that also means that now I have quite the amount of reviews to write. Oops!
Anyways these are just recaps on the books and shows I watched last week that I plan on reviewing later this week.

Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay
I really loved this book it had all the genre's I love and a kickass heroine whom I liked but also made me want to strangle her along with her love interest. They were hilarious together but could also be complete buttheads towards each other. Gahhh!!

End of Days by Susan Ee
Yep, I finally read the End of Days the conclusion to the amazing trilogy that I've loved since the beginning. This book was full of action, romance, death and a whole lot of other stuff but don't ask me yet. I'…

Undercover Supporting Actress ~ Thailand Drama

Image
Name: Undercover Supporting Actress/Nang Rai Sai Lab Language: Thailand with English subtitles Episodes: 13
My Review
Action, romance, and hilarity ensues when the number one villain actress Zoe is taken in by the police for a crime she didn't commit but much to her dismay has strong evidence pointing to her. And the only way the police will keep this quiet is if she works as a spy for them to capture a Drug lord. Zoe doesn't want to be a spy but she has no other option than to agree.

Zoe is good at playing the villain on-screen but when it comes to being off-screen she's the most loyal and nicest person ever (unless you get on her bad side) and also a major klutz. I really liked Zoe's character because although she was kind, she wasn't afraid to put people in their place when they were being really mean and rude and I just loved her for it (these kinds of girl character's are rare in Thailand dramas). Although, Zoe's character was amazing she also had her fla…
