BLURB:

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother-or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up. Continue reading

But enough talking, let’s get to the mathematics part. Continue reading

Happy Easter + Video Review: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Dear readers,

Is there a better feeling in the world than waking up to chocolate and good books? I received so many sweets from my loved ones that I think I should lock some up, otherwise I’ll eat them all and gain 50 kilos!
