15 Day Book Blogger Challenge ~ Day 4

I'm taking part in the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge, hosted by Good Books and Good Wine! This is a great way to get to know a bit more about the bloggers behind these book blogs!

What's the last book you flung across the room?

Usually, a 'fling across the room' book for me is one that I absolutely despised, or one that I completely adored and then it leaves off on a huge cliffhanger. But the last book I actually threw off of my bed and was super mad at was Sever by Lauren DeStefano. 

With the clock ticking until the virus takes its toll, Rhine is desperate for answers. After enduring Vaughn’s worst, Rhine finds an unlikely ally in his brother, an eccentric inventor named Reed. She takes refuge in his dilapidated house, though the people she left behind refuse to stay in the past. While Gabriel haunts Rhine’s memories, Cecily is determined to be at Rhine’s side, even if Linden’s feelings are still caught between them.
Meanwhile, Rowan’s growing involvement in an underground resistance compels Rhine to reach him before he does something that cannot be undone. But what she discovers along the way has alarming implications for her future—and about the past her parents never had the chance to explain.
In this breathtaking conclusion to Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden trilogy, everything Rhine knows to be true will be irrevocably shattered.

Why it was thrown:

If you read my review, you'll notice that it's full of GIFs and capslock yelling and a pretty passionate little rant about why this book broke my heart and how mad I was that I couldn't talk about it because SPOILERS.

Anyway, I started off reading this book and was pretty disappointed at the beginning and had to force myself to read on, because I wanted to know what happened. I got to a certain point where I really started to enjoy it and then.... BOOM. DeStefano throws this huge SURPRISE! in our face and while I was impressed that she took a risk and did something you don't see a lot of in YA, I also felt like she did this just to get the love triangle out of the way in a quick manner. I was pretty mad at Rhine, as well, for just kind of forgetting all that she had been fighting for and against and going with whatever her brother said. 

So, yes, this is a book that I flung across the room due to heartbreak and anger. 

Okay, yeah, not as drastic as this, but I absolutely loved this GIF when I was trying to find something appropriate :P

There have been others where it was close, but this is definitely the last book I actually threw from my spot on my bed/couch to the ground.

Let's chat: What books do you remember getting so frustrated with that you had the urge to throw it down?

Happy reading!


  1. Kristy where do you all get these GIF's from? Everyone's got them. Btw I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I absolutely adore your blog design, Evie did amazingly well, wish I could afford her, Lori from Pure Imagination or Rachel from Parajunkee to do my blog.

    Day 3 & 4 Blogger Challenge

    1. I usually find them on tumblr or if I'm looking for an emotion in particular, I literally just google it. So I was looking for a GIF where someone threw a book down and I googled 'throwing book gif' and that's what I found! Then I just save it under my GIF folder for future use! :) And thank you so much! I'm so impressed by Evie's talent!


Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I appreciate every single comment I get! I will try as hard as I can to remember to stop by your blog and return the favour! (I'm so sorry if I forget, I have an awful memory!)

As of now, A Little Shelf of Heaven is an award-free blog! I really appreciate them, so so much, but I just don't have the time to pass them along to other blogs!

Thanks for stopping by! <3
