Wait… Hold on a minute. What the actual heck did just happen? Why am I feeling this way? Is it okay to cry? Tell me I didn’t just read 6 big fat books from this series to end up in an unbearable and suspenseful ending.

Empire of Storms was filled with adventures and amusements, and it was all so breathtaking!

I literally shipped every single ‘to-be couples’ in this book so bad, that I think I might have squealed out loud when they finally found their love for each other.

I’m going to keep this review short and let you know that I absolutely loved this book! It was all worth the hype and the suspense is still bothering my brain.

✨5 out of 5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

The book Dreamology was like a balloon, it puffed me up with excitement and anticipation in every chapter and then *Whoosh*… it ended up bursting with nothing but unanswered questions and an unsatisfying ending.

I will be completely honest, this is the type of book that you’ll effortlessly be able to get through, not because you HAVE to because you started it already, but because you’d WANT to. The concept was great, and the writing style was simple and easy, and the description of the Boston City was dazzling!

Now I’ll be completely honest about what I didn’t like – or in correct terms – HATED in this book. Especially about the main characters, and in particular, Alice.

So… let me start by giving you a synopsis. Alice dreams about a guy called Max almost every time she falls asleep, he’s her imaginary boyfriend. One day she ends up meeting this Max in real life when Alice and her father shift to the Boston City from New York. But Max doesn’t recognize her, which she later finds out is because he chooses not to, even though he remembers having the same dreams of her as she dreamed of him. Simply because he has a girlfriend in real life…

I ended up hating Alice just as much as I had liked her at the beginning of this book. She was so full of herself. And so was her ‘on and off from imaginary to real’ boyfriend Max. Alice didn’t seem to care anything about the world or her friends other than herself and her vivid dream and imagination, literally!

The only characters I genuinely liked were her supportive friends, Oliver and Sophie.

Now, about the worst parts. The ending felt awfully rushed out and unexplained even though we were promised a scientific explanation about the weird dreams the main leads kept having about each other from the first chapters.

AND I didn’t feel giddy while reading the romantic scenes, in fact; I wasn’t even shipping them when I was supposed to. Could there be anything more disappointing in a book?

I’m being very, VERY kind and generous by giving this book 2.5 out of 5 stars that’s almost gravitating towards a 3. Because I’ve read worse books, and even though the main leads were horribly annoying and the ending was rushed out, the book kind of entertained me.

“This book has been written so beautifully that I think I’m going to cry...” I thought as soon as I finished the last page of this exceptional novella.

I will be completely honest; never did I ever, EVER expect to love Not your But Forever as much as I ended up loving it. So much so that now it’s actually among my list of favorite books written by new authors.

The writing style was so heartbreakingly good. And the main character, Mia, was so beautifully and meaningfully portrayed that I actually felt and understood her pain.

The book showed us the world from the perspective of an emotionally depressed teenager and her journey to a slow yet crucial healing recovery.

This novella was easy to get through; it couldn’t bore me, at all. It was the type of story that made me think a lot, made me understand the life from the perspective of a depressed victim much more closely.

It’s surely worth a read, but I must warn you, this book portrays issues such as self-harm and somewhat strong languages, so if you’re under 18, I don’t recommend you to read it yet.

A 4.5 out of 5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
