Get Up Offa That Slump Blogging Extravaganza | Day Four: Review of My Favorite Book Ever

Blogging Extravaganza

I’ve never done one of these month long blogging things, and I decided this month, why not? It’s hosted over on Rachel’s blog, Beauty and the Bookshelf (such a cute name by the way, what the heck??) So, without further ado, lets get on with day four!

Day Four: Review of My Favorite Book Ever

Here’s the prompt:

I know I said this extravaganza wasn’t about reviews, but this is a little different. This is your favorite book in the history ofever. This entire review would be incoherent spewing coming from your heart because you love this book. You’re not even really reviewing it. You are writing a love poem, a sonnet for this book, and possibly buying it an engagement ring and lots of chocolate (but keep it away from the pages!).

So basically, I’m going to be writing a love letter to my favorite book today. But instead of just my favorite book, I’ve decided I’m going to write a review on my favorite series. And of course, because I can’t just pick one, I’m going to choose two.

My first book love letter is going to go out to the Nevermore Trilogy by Kelly Creagh. Oh my god I loved this book.

Nevermore Trilogy

First of all, my review for the first two are here:

I still haven’t put up a review of the last book, Oblivion, but that’s because I just keep forgetting. So instead, I’m going to write this love letter.

This book is a super creepy love story that I could honestly reread a thousand times. I’ve actually read Nevermore I think about ten times? I’m not 100% positive on that number, but I know it’s pretty close up there. I’m in love with it.

It’s got Poe, a hot, mysterious love interest, and creepy demons hunting after the main characters. Who wouldn’t love it?!

The second book series is another trilogy, and that is the Mara Dyer Trilogy.

And again, I’ll link all my reviews down here so you can read actually coherent ones that I’ve written instead of this mess of a love letter one.

The Nevermore Trilogy was my first favorite book that I remember, aside from the typical Twilight phase I went through in 8th grade, but I think the Mara Dyer Trilogy might just be pushing Nevermore right out of that spot. I’m definitely planning on doing a reread because I’m literally in love with this book.

Everything about this series is beautifully done and so well written that I can’t even fathom how it was done. I love it so much.

Basically:

Dear Mara Dyer Trilogy,

i love you most ardently

This is how all my love letters to books would probably end up. I would get too excited about the book, start thinking about it way too much, and then I end up reading it instead of actually finishing the letter.

So I present to you, half ass done letters. With love.

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!

    Thank you for including a Darcy gif Olivia! *swoons*
    I’ve seen Mara Dryer around a few times but haven’t picked it up, and I haven’t actually heard of Nevermore before!! Sounds like I have some reading to do…!
    Plus, the cover for the Unbecoming is SO PRETTY.
    I’d totally half ass my love letters too! Because excitement and aaddfgkfjf, basically. I had to resort to a list :’)

      You can pretty much count on me to find some sort of way to include a Darcy gif in anything 😉

      You definitely need to pick up both of those! They’re so so good. Nevermore is a little more on the creepy paranormal side, while Mara Dyer is just plain creepy and mysterious.

      And I’ll go check out yours now! I’m sure its a perfect list for your book love <3

  • hahah love this. I bashed books and I still couldn’t put a full review/hate email together so I did three mini ones xD You’re not alone! I loved the Mara Dyer trilogy! I was so surprised by it. It went a direction I didn’t expect at all but I loved the creepiness of it. One time, I was reading it at night and I got a little scared 😀

      It was definitely a surprising read! And I totally did that too! I would have to keep a light on next to me while I read it if it was ever dark, or even just storming, because she’s so good at writing creepy scenes!

  • Great post, I remember loving the first Mara Dyer book but haven’t finished the trilogy yet.
