“Forbidden” – Book Review & Update on life

Hey guys!! I am so sorry that I haven’t been doing anything over the past wen or so on this blog. The 30 day challenge absolutely drained it all out of me but I promise, more will come in the future on this blog. I’m currently watching a billion animes at once, and I can’t wait to share with you everything about them.

However, today I will be discussing to you all about the most recent book that I have finished reading called “Forbidden” by Tabitha Suzuma. A couple of days ago during the 30 day challenge, I had talked about this book briefly, but now I am back and ready to share with you all my thoughts on the book.

So, here goes!! (By the way, I’m typing this on my iPod so if there are any mistakes in grammar and/or spelling please forgive me ><)

Also note!! This review will contain spoilers so if you are intending to read this book then please stop reading any further and exit this post IMMEDIATELY!! Just to warn you hehe

Day 24: I have no idea how I came across it but so far, no regrets!

Day 24: What book are you currently reading or what was the last book you read?

Hey guys and welcome back to the 30 day challenge! It is day number 24 ALREADY!!! Wow-wee guys, in less than a week this challenge will be complete (can you believe?!) Alrighty, let us start!

Not recommended for the weak-hearted, or people who have strong moral beliefs.

So, the current book that I am reading is called “Forbidden” written by Tabitha Suzuma. Below is the blurb written from the website “GoodReads”:

She is pretty and talented – sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen in love. But… they are brother and sister.

Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As defacto parents to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast. And the stress of their lives—and the way they understand each other so completely—has also also brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love. They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: a love this devastating has no happy ending.

So, as the text above can clearly state, this book is not great for anybody how can handle incest, or angst for that matter. I came across the book by accident while looking for books that were released newly this year. After I finish reading this, I plan to continue reading “The Vampire Diaries” series (I’m up to the 3rd book. Slow, I know.)

I’ve only started this book on Monday and so far I haven’t gotten into anything too deep as the blurb suggests. It’s just been introducing the current conditions at home for both protagonists. An ungrateful mother is in the picture (who I feel like punching at moments) and a bunch of kids who have to be cared for by their older siblings. I’ve arrived to a very intense point, and can’t wait to continue reading it. By the way, for those who are wondering, I downloaded an e-book version of it. I always prefer reading the book in its actual form but I couldn’t find this book in my local library…I hate it when that happens ><

Anyway, if I feel like it, I can do a review on the book once I have finished reading it. Also, I  probably should do a movie review soon too since it’s been a while :3

Have a great day guys, love you all and I’ll talk to ya’ll soon~~
