    If Prodigy made me want to cry and scream and pretty much throw a tantrum like a little girl, Champion made all my troubles go away. I am very well satisfied with the ending of this series, and although I still have lots of questions for what will happen in June's future I can fill those gaps with my own imagination. Marie Lu did a wonderful job with this entire series, and ended it in a bittersweet note. Without giving out too many spoilers, or ...

    And... it's over.This series has come a long, long way from where it started and has managed to shatter boundaries and exceed expectations where, in my opinion, other series like Divergent and Blood Red Road have failed. It started out like almost every other piece of dystopian fiction released in 2011. Some random political facts thrown about, set in a future United States that was torn apart by war, oppressive government in power and, of course...

    5 STARS(WARNING: MILD SPOILERS) "I think I don’t care about you anymore, that things will be easier once you’re far away, and then all of a sudden I’m here again, and you’re..." Day pauses to look at me. The anguish in his expression is a knife cutting through my heart. "Why do I do this to myself? I see you and feel such—" He has tears in his eyes now. The sight is more than I can bear. He takes two steps away from me and then turns ba...

    ____________________________________________ “Then Day reaches out and touches my hand with his. He encloses it in a handshake. And just like that, I am linked with him again, I feel the pulse of our bond and his- tory and love through our hands, like a wave of magic, the return of a long-lost friend. Of something meant to be. The feeling brings tears to my eyes. Perhaps we can take a step forward together.“Hi,” he says. “I’m Daniel....

    FINAL REVIEWJust... How did Marie Lu just wrap up this amazing series with an ever more so amazing book?! This book makes we want to do this:This: BECAUSE MY BRAIN ISN'T WORKING AFTER READING THIS, like NO!

    Holy crow! This book had me sad crying and happy crying! I loved this ending to the trilogy. Although, there was a lot of sadness and worry throughout the book I was just hoping and praying it was going to end well. In a sense it did, but it's complicated. They go to war, or I should say are attacked and they are trying to get help from Antarctica and things are all kinds of crazy and scary. Some things are going on with little Eden and with Day....

    Usually when people tell me that a book is super emotional I wind up shrugging at the end instead of crying because I've braced myself for the worst. And SO many people kept telling me I'd be sobbing at the end of this book that I went into it ready for pretty much anything. BUT I WAS NOT READY FOR THAT.Ughhh not ok. But oh wow that was an awesome trilogy. Marie Lu writes the most amazing character-driven & action-packed stories. I am so thankful...

    Eh. Well. The first book is always going to be the best, am I right? I just wish Champion could've denied that statement. But it did not, and now I am here, dejectedly sipping gingerbread tea and morosely eating my cheerios while writing a review that should've been filled with screaming and jumping gifs, yet all it is filled with is a distressed Ariel and a run-on sentence. 2 things: 1. Marie Lu is still an extremely talented writer, and if you ...

    This is me after rereading the last chapter over and over again... Why the hell do you do that and make everyone wait a year! She should have said " I love you!"

    EDIT 14/3/2015: I MET MARIE LU AND IT WAS FUCKING GLORIOUS.SIGNED COPY, BITCHES.After I finished Champion, I just stared at the wall for several minutes, trying to sort out my feels. For the rest of the night, I was numb, unable to do homework or anything constructive because Marie HAD ripped a hole in my heart that can only be filled by another good book (though it'd most likely tear me a new one, too. Dammit)The Characters:Day: He was my favori...

    I am rating this 5 stars even though I had quite a few problems with it, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. There are a few things that I wish were tied up better and the ending was a bit frustrating at first, but I'm leaving this trilogy feeling satisfied.

    “Sometimes, the sun sets earlier. Days don’t last forever, you know. But I’ll fight as hard as I can. I can promise you that.” Are you familiar with the feeling of not knowing which book to read next, and not really wanting to, because there’s that sinking feeling in your stomach, that knowledge, that no other book will ever rival the one you just finished? That’s how I feel right now. Because, in all seriousness, Champion is perfecti...

    GENRE: YA/DYSTOPIAN/ROMANCE Champion is the anticipated last book in the Marie Lu's stunning dystopian Legend trilogy....and by the end it left me feeling a LOT like this... If you are thinking this will end 'happily ever after', think again. I mean, why would you even think that since ,like, 99.9% of dystopian books these days end up freaking tragically?I was screaming in my head. This.Cannot.Be.Happening.Again. All i want is a decent, happy end...

    Final rating: 5/5 starsYou're gonna suffer, but you are going to be happy about it.- Ron, Harry Potter “You once told me why you chose ‘Day’ as your street name,” she says firmly. She moves her hand so that it’s over mine, hiding the paper clip ring from view. The warmth of her skin against mine makes my breath short. “Every morning, everything’s possible again. Right?” (...)Finally, I take a deep breath. “Sometimes, the sun s...

    All that drama and feelings! It was really great. Uploaded with ImageShack.usMarie Lu has done a wonderful job taking June and Day from being two infatuated teens to full blown love. I am so very, very happy with this series ending. Lu outdid herself in the feelings and plot department.Marie Lu has really grown as a writer, she portrays feelings on a much deeper level and her abilities to flesh out the subtle intricacies of June and Day's relatio...

    I... I need a moment. A night. A day (Daaaay I will never be able to use this word mindlessly again). So I don't know when the review will be ready. Could be in half an hour as well as tomorrow. When my feelings will be fine again, instead, well, that's another story.A few hours later (or whatever. I think this series deprived me of my sense of time):"Our dance around each other always seems like it's doomed to repeat itself over and over again."...

    I'm sad.And I really really really liked this book. It was so AWESOME and full of action and love and grieve and ME CRYING IN MY BED HUGGING IT. This book made me realize that dystopian books never end well enough for me to be happy. This ending was a little like Cassie Clare's Clockwork Princess: A sad happy ending. And I REALLY liked the ending, but oh, it made me cry so much. I think what June decided at the end was really noble, but I don't k...
