So, I may or may have not been slacking off a little. So, no book reviews until next week. Sorry.
The Diviners- Libbra Bray.
So this book was a strange one to read. It was thick, slow-paced(at times), then suddenly intense and engrossing. But perhaps I am getting ahead of myself. This was a book about a group of people(who don't ever really get together) with something odd about them. Whether they can see the future or they can heal people with a touch of the hands, there is a little bit of something in just about everyone. So, these people must stop a murdering ghost from destroying the only world they know. So all and all, it was thick and hard to stay focused on. I did enjoy it. It just took me a bit to read and grasp.
Girl Child- Tupelo Hassman
This book starred a girl who lives in a one-horse town. As the girl goes through her life in poverty, she also is trying to discover the positives in life, when mostly surrounded by the not so positives. I have to say, I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I loved the analogies, the voice of our narrator, the way the story progressed through the child's memories. I completely enjoyed this book.
Heist Society- Ally Carter
This book is one in a set. It is about a girl named Kat. She grew up in a life of hard core "borrowing". Yep, that's right Kat is a thief She never wanted to be. You can't chose to who you were born you know. So, anyhow one day, after finally getting out of the business, it comes back to bite her. Hard. I really enjoyed this story. It was fast-paced and entertaining. Not to mention the romantic aspect. And you guys know, I loves me some romance.
So my first set of three is here! The Diviners- Libbra Bray (Love Her), Heist Society- Ally Carter (Love her and this book), and Girlchild(should be interesting). I am really excited to begin!
Expect a post this Saturday for all three books!
So, I have decided to participate in the YALSA's Reading Challenge(link under Other Things Tab). So in order to make sure that you know what I have and haven't read, I will begin to mass post. So that means three books per post(you know depending on what it is that I read and how fast I finish.
Also, I have been poking around, and I realized that my blog is very bare(something that would have been nice to know had you mentioned it) so in order to fix that I will be adding lovely pictures and .gifs to more of my posts. So if you like it(or not) drop me a line. Trust me, I will not be overtly busy. Plus, I enjoy hearing what you think.
Also, I need something catchy to say at the end of each post. If you have an idea, that would be swell (yes, I did just say swell) for you to inform me of.
Go write your own happiness?
So many choices!
In order: 1. The Demon King 2.The Exiled Queen 3. The Gray Wolf Throne 4. The Crimson Crown
Long time no post. No seriously, my combined laziness, swimming activities, homework, school work, procrastination problem, and past birthday have caused me to slack off on my duties here. Sorry! So anyway, I hope that you like the new layout, I know I do! Tell me what you think!
Anyhow... this not a book, this not a story, nor a novel, this is a world, that you have somehow managed to fall into. This world is on the brink of war. Conniving wizards, war-happy tribes, deceit, many fires, bloodlines, gorgeous guys who run the dangerous streets, murder, secret passage-ways, and wolves take giant roles in this book. Seriously, I cannot tell you much, or I just know that I will just ruin the story, so if any of the things I listed up there sound good to you please, do not hesitate to go read this book. It is definitely worth it.
Have you ever started reading a book series before it was finished, and then years later you can finally read the last one but you are nervous that you won't enjoy it the same because your tastes have changed a little? No? Well, I know I am not the only one. My point is I felt this way, but then read it and fell even harder in love with this series. There is just something about the way Chima writes, it is engrossing. I must say marvelous. Below is a picture I found that I thought was hilarious, but you won't get it unless you have read the books, and at least liked it.
