Hello my lovely readers!
I know it has been a long time but I am here to say that I am back!
I will be working on reading and hopefully having reviews and fun things up on the blog soon!
Game of Thrones
Really enjoying this so far. I’ve already seen the first two seasons of the tv series now but I’m really enjoying comparing the book to the series.
This is moving along alright. There were some grammatical errors in the first few chapters but nothing too serious.
So I haven’t posted in awhile with what I’ve been reading or how I’ve been liking the books. So I thought I would talk about it for a bit today. If you’ve been stalking my goodreads you will know that I am “currently reading” 12 books. I know this is a crazy number but some of the books I have put on hold or hiatus or whatever you would like to call it. And about five of them I am actually “currently reading.”
But I would like to discuss 3 in particular that have really been holding my attention lately. The first is Blink Once, I started this very recently and I like how it’s started. I hadn’t read the synopsis in awhile so I almost started the book blind in a way. Sometimes I like to start a book knowing nothing about it. It can be surprising and I like to be surprised in a book. It’s a totally different experience to read a book when you know next to nothing about it. So far I’m enjoying it and can’t wait to get farther into it.
The second book is Random Magic. And it is that, random and full of magic. I find myself laughing and tilting my head countless times since starting the book. So many different characters and things going on in the book. I also find myself wanting to munch on something. That may be partly due to the fact that food is mentioned every now and then in the book. This book really is quite an adventure.
And lastly for today I would like to mention Bullet by Laurell K. Hamilton. I know, I know. Alot of people have given up on the series by now, actually alot of people gave up awhile ago. But I keep getting sucked back into the story and the characters. I normally will read 3 or 4 in the series back to back and then I will take a break and read something else. I think that is why I’m still in it with this series. I love the writing, while some of the books storylines could have been a bit better. I keep coming back to all the magical-ness that is in the Anita Blake series. I can’t help but need to get my Anita Blake fix.
GoodReads Challenge: I want to read 25 books this year, so far I have finished 8. I think I am off to a good start so far, considering starting college.
10,000 pages in 2012:So far I’ve only read 2,415 pages. Not bad, seeing as it’s only March. I do plan on reading Game of Thrones and a couple other big books so that number should jump higher considerably.
2012 Reading Challange: My goal was to read 10 books that have been sitting on my shelf or released 2011 or earlier. So far I’ve only read 4 out of that 10. Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann, Going to far by Jennifer Echols, Deeper than Midnight by Lara Adrian (ADULT), and Wither by Lauren Destefano.
Reviews to come: Wither by Lauren Destefano, Zero by Tom Leveen, and Cross my Heart by Sasha Gould.
Currently Reading: Skinned by Robin Wasserman
Vlogs to Come: IMM & Huge Wrap Up
So, I’ve started another book. This book I am doing a buddy read with a friend from goodreads. Expect a review for this one once I finish it. I’ve heard alot of good things about this book. I hope they are all true.
The Maze Runner by: James Dashner
“Imagine waking up one day in total darkness, unsure of where you are and unable to remember anything about yourself except your first name. You’re in a bizarre place devoid of adults called the Glade. The Glade is an enclosed structure with a jail, a graveyard, a slaughterhouse, living quarters, and gardens. And no way out. Outside the Glade is the Maze, and every day some of the kids — the Runners — venture into the labyrinth, trying to map the ever-changing pattern of walls in an attempt to find an exit from this hellish place. So far, no one has figured it out. And not all of the Runners return from their daily exertions, victims of the maniacal Grievers, part animal, part mechanical killing machines.
Thomas is the newest arrival to the Glade in this Truman-meets-Lord of the Flies tale. A motley crew of half a dozen kids is all he has to guide him in this strange world. As soon as he arrives, unusual things begin to happen, and the others grow suspicious of him. Though the Maze seems somehow familiar to Thomas, he’s unable to make sense of the place, despite his extraordinary abilities as a Runner. What is this place, and
does Thomas hold the key to finding a way out?
In The Maze Runner, Dashner has crafted a creative and engaging novel that’s both mysterious and thought provoking.”
