BOTD: Light by Michael Grant



Light is book six in the Gone series. The gaiaphage is now in a human body and intent on eliminating Nemesis (Little Pete) so that she/it can take over the world as soon as the barrier comes down. Because the barrier is now transparent, some are starting to focus on the end game and what life will be like after they make it out, but it’s not that simple, because the gaiaphage, or Gaia, may kill them all before the barrier comes down.

Like the other books, it is really well written, the characters are believable, the pace is fast, and the action is exciting and intense. It’s darker in tone than the other books but it’s also really engrossing. More importantly, this book wraps up all of the plots very well. The conclusion was so well done that this is probably my favorite of the series!

BOTD: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs



When he was growing up, Jacob’s grandfather would tell him stories of children he grew up with in an orphanage; children who all had special abilities. He would even show him pictures of the children - a girl who could levitate, a boy holding up a boulder, a boy with a mouth on the back of his head. In order to try to come to terms with not only his grandfather’s death but who his grandfather was, Jacob travels to try to find the orphanage and find out more about his grandfather’s past.

I adored this book. Not only is the story well paced, charming, and interesting, but it was an entire textile experience. The photos described in the story are interspersed throughout the text. If he references a title page of a book, the next page is that title page. The first page of a new chapter is just a beautiful pattern. Even just the feel of the pages and weight of the book added to the feeling that it was precious and special, so much so that I took special precautions to preserve the integrity of the binding and avoid curling the pages.

I had heard bits and pieces about this story before I picked up the book, and I was expecting more of a horror story, but while there are dangerous creatures, it reads more as an adventure story. As a quest. In fact, when I was describing the plot to Adam, he asked “so, basically, a more interesting Percy Jackson?” Obviously, not quite true, as this book is first person from only one perspective, it doesn’t involve gods or demigods etc., but a grandiose, daring quest story? Yup.

The only frustrating thing for me with this story was how very well it set up the sequel. It isn’t that the ending wasn’t done well, because it felt like a natural close, like the end of a chapter as opposed to an abrupt stop, but it was frustrating because I want to know the rest! Hollow City, here I come! (After I tackle this to-be-read shelf first of course.)

Whenever I wear brown eye shadow, it feels underwhelming like I just have dirt on my eye. Still though, I do think it’s pretty. I have odd brown-eye shadow-related insecurities. This is all Urban Decay. The brown on the lid is West from the Theodora Oz Great and Powerful palette; it’s blended with browns from Naked 3. The eye liner is the 24/7 glideon eye pencil in Stash.
(i’m not gonna lie…it could be a combo of Naked 2 and Naked 3, or it could really be Naked 2. These are things I own and find lovely but rarely use because of the aforementioned brown eye shadow-related issues. But I’m positive, at least, about West.)
I wore brown because I wanted to wear the Urban Decay super-saturated high gloss lip-colour pencil in Theodora (now available as F-bomb) that came with the Oz palette. They went well together.

NOTD: Julep Annette

I purchased Annette during one of Julep’s sales, at the same time as Shoshanna. It’s a pale gray polish.

2 coats.

To be honest, I find the color to be disappointing. I was hoping it would just a bit paler than Dove. In person, it’s significantly paler than Dove and is just kind of a non-color. Meh.

Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencils in Mildew, Junkie, Loaded, Vice, and Sabbath. The Loaded has no printing on it whatsoever, which is odd. Also odd, that I walked into a Sephora and dropped $100 on eyeliner. But I’m obsessed with theses, nearly as much as I’m obsessed with new eye shadow these days.
