BOOK.FAVE.RAVE: THE ACADEMY
Damn, this book is made of pure awesome!
This is one of those days wherein I get to thank my goodreads friends again because I never would've found out about this book without them soooo.. thanks!
Reading THE ACADEMY has it's perks. Here are some of them:
✔A girl posing as a guy? Come on! Tell me you're not at least a bit interested in that!
✔There's sci fi parts
✔There's medieval times parts (historical or something)
✔You get to read about an all boys school (I don't see many books with this kind of setup)
✔Scenes are just soooo cute you could just squeal!
✔The girl may not be kickass, but she's smart! So you know, it makes up for her lack of strength.
✔You root for the girl errmm.. guy!
✔You keep on rooting for her errrmm him and yet you want to bash HER head because SHE doesn't wanna say that she's a SHHEEEEEE!!!!
This novel has a very interesting plot and setting. It' set to be in a very futuristic era, but then there are places wherein it's very old fashioned. When I say old fashioned, it's OLD OLD.. like Victorian times or something. It's fascinating, really. What lured me here is its striking resemblance of the plot of HANA KIMI, a japanese series.
You see... they are also room mates and the guy also felt the need to protect the girl posing as a guy. Maybe the only difference is that no one wants to kill the girl in Hana Kimi. Oh well.
--I'm actually amazed by North's character. He was questioning his sexuality and he was going crazy with it. When he couldn't take it anymore, he practically threw himself to Kris when they were on a break. To be honest, I loved that scene! ahhaha! that was plain precious! ^__^
If by some miracle, Kris turns out to be Asian, this is what she'd look like to me..
and they'd look like this:
awwwww... Anyway.. I had fun reading this. I was laughing out loud at some point because hey, her hardships as a poser is such a hilarious thing to read about and imagine. It's very light hearted and even if there are serious scenes, it's still totally cute. I guarantee a happy ending too! So everyone! Let's read this! ^________^
