BOOK REVIEW UPDATE: The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave #1) by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave #1) by Rick Yancey ๐Ÿ™ถAfter 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. ๐Ÿ™ท My Rating: ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ /5 I can understand the hype, why people say it's the next Hunger Games. I wouldn't go so far as to say that it is, but I get it. The 5th Wave is a fast-paced post-apocalyptic surviva

BOOK REVIEW UPDATE: The Arrangement by Robyn Harding

The Arrangement by Robyn Harding ๐Ÿ™ถNatalie, a young art student in New York City, is struggling to pay her bills when a friend makes a suggestion: Why not go online and find a sugar daddy—a wealthy, older man who will pay her for dates and even give her a monthly allowance?

Though more than thirty years her senior, Gabe, a handsome corporate finance attorney, seems like the perfect candidate, and within a month, they are madly in love. At least, Nat is…Gabe already has a family, whom he has no intention of leaving. So when he abruptly ends things, Nat can’t let go.

What was supposed to be a mutually beneficial arrangement devolves into a nightmare of deception, obsession, and, when a body is found near Gabe’s posh Upper East Side apartment, murder.๐Ÿ™ท My Rating: DNF I've never read anything

BOOK REVIEW UPDATE: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

  The Fault in Our Stars by John Green ๐Ÿ™ถDespite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars brilliantly explores the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.๐Ÿ™ท My Rating: ๐ŸŒŸ/5 I  didn't like this book at all. I finished it in 2 hours, actually reading the first few chapters and then skimming the rest. I couldn't make myself care for the characters. I find them all to be unbelievably irritating. I thought Hazel was condescending and a know-it-all. She talks like this: "I need an ambulance. The great love of my life has a malfunctioning G-tube." Like seriously? Who says that, let alone to a 911 operator?  The plot, meh, nothi

Coinbase Cancels Services to Other Countries: My Personal Experience

As a long-time Coinbase user, I received an alarming email with the subject "An Important Message Regarding Your Coinbase Account." The email informed me that Coinbase would be discontinuing all services to my account and that I had until September 25th, 2023, to withdraw my funds. Confused and frustrated, I discovered that many other users were facing the same situation.

Plug and Socket Types around the World: Why You Need a Universal Travel Adapter

  Are you planning an international trip? Exciting! But before you go, it’s important to remember that not all countries use the same electrical outlet plugs. In fact, there are currently 15 types of domestic electrical outlet plugs in use worldwide, each of which has been assigned a letter by the US Department of Commerce International Trade Administration (ITA), starting with A and moving through the alphabet. These letters are completely arbitrary and don’t actually mandate anything. Different regions of the world use different plug shapes and sizes, so you’ll want to choose the correct one for the country you’re visiting. For example, most of Europe uses one type, but Italy and Switzerland each use something different. Don’t worry though, there are many options available to help you stay connected and charged up while you travel. First things first, always remember to bring a Universal Travel Adapter. This is a must-have item for any international traveler. A Universal Travel Adapt
