My thoughts

Just like the first book, Interim Goddess of Love, I really enjoyed reading Queen of the Clueless. But don't let the title fool you because our substitute goddess Hannah is not as clueless as before. :) She's slowly getting the hang of her powers, and that mind reading thing is so awesome. Me really likes! In this book, we get to know the characters more and a deeper background of the gods and goddesses is revealed. I also liked how Hannah's relationship with Robbie progressed. It's so cuuuute! I still can't get over the fact that Robbie is such a gentleman and a really nice guy. Kindness is always a turn on, girls. Quin is still his same sensible self, but now I understand his actions better. There's also a new character that affects everyone's lives, most especially Hannah's. When I was reading this, I wasn't sure if she would be an ally or an enemy. Oohh so mysterious. And Diego! ASKDJFHAKLDJ!!! Why must you play with my mind, you unpredictable piece of cake, why?!

Queen of the Clueless also shows a different side of Hannah, aside from being a teen goddess. She's also Sol's best friend and that friendship plays a huge part in this book. It's kinda complicated because of that thing with Sol, but I think it made the story all the more interesting.

That ending is really intriguing! Vida totally wins at being a classic kontrabida. I sure wanted to strangle her, but I knew she plays an important role. But still!

My thoughts

Ohmygods THIS BOOK! I want to weep with joy because Icon of the Indecisive is just too beautiful. Good vibes and happy feels all over! ^__^

The Reluctant Dragon (1941)
A lot of my questions in the first two books were finally answered and conflicts were quite resolved here. I don't want to be too spoilery but the feels! I love this book because the turn of events was as realistic as possible. Even though Hannah accepts being an immortal goddess, she should still be allowed to experience life (and love) as a normal teenager, right? I love Quin for understanding that. They have forever, anyway. And in all fairness, Hannah and Robbie really do love each other, and they're so adorable together.

I absolutely love the ending and how it connects the visions and the mythology and all. Aww, so swoony! I couldn't have thought of a more perfect ending for this trilogy. It gave me all the happy feels! Mina Esguerra totally nailed it!
