I am number Four is the first book in the Lorien Legacies series which has 7 books. This book was adapted into a movie in 2011 and that was just an average movie that killed the movie franchise for this book series. But let's come back to the book, the book is about a group of aliens who escaped to the earth after their planet is destroyed by a hostile group of aliens. Nine young kids along with guardians leave the planet and there is a charm placed on them which means that they can only be killed in order thus we start with the murder of number 3 and then we meet Number Four. After they landed on the earth all Nine groups moved in different directions and they tried to stay away. And that means that our protagonist leaving for another small town and assuming another identity this time they reach Paradise, Ohio, and assume the names John Smith and Henri Smith and pose as a Father-Son duo. 

Now let's talk about how I felt about the book. I had seen the movie when it was released and wanted to read this series for a long time and wanted to collect the entire series but alas could only collect the 5 out of 7 books I am missing books 5 and 6 in the series. But I had enough and finally started reading the book and I freaking loved the book. This book is very slow yet it was a book that I finished in just a few days and I quickly picked up the second part of the story and I am already 50+ pages in that as well. The book its time as John or Number Four discovers his past and his powers. John is now 15 years old and so he starts gaining some powers. And then the training begins as the hostile race that attacked their planet is also hunting them on the earth. Also as John is a teenager he is attending high school and there is his love interest Sarah and the antagonist Mark. Sarah and Mark used to date but have since broken up. I enjoyed my time reading this book and would recommend this book to all if you love reading fiction and YA books. I am myself love YA books and fiction books. 

My Rating for this book is 5 out of 5

***** out of *****

Review: Emperor of Thorns

Emperor of Thorns Emperor of Thorns by Mark Lawrence
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow! Finally done, I have finally not only completed this book but this trilogy as well. I wanted to read this series for so long and now finally completed during the pandemic and now reduced my reading has become. I was introduced to Mark Lawrence through Goodreads where I saw, read, and enjoyed his reviews for other books. And his joy at the wonderful work done by others. Coming back to the book this keeps on jumping from time to time and sometimes perspective too and slowly we reach the conclusion. It was another good read though through my slump this took almost 3 months to finish after all I read other books throughout the time as well. I already have the next two trilogies set in the world ready to be read but like I said I would first try to finish the books in my Currently reading list so the fool of thieves will have to wait a little bit more yet. So while I put this book in the read booklists and continue to try to finish the books that are waiting for me and I will Keep on Reading.

People who don't read generally ask me my reasons for reading. Simply put I just love reading and so to that end I have made it my motto to just Keep on Reading. I love to read everything except for Self Help books but even those once in a while. I read almost all the genres but YA, Fantasy, Biographies are the most. My favorite series is, of course, Harry Potter but then there are many more books that I just adore. I have bookcases filled with books which are waiting to be read so can't stay and spend more time in this review, so remember I loved reading this and love reading more, you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading.
