Currently reading

Living Dead Girl - Elizabeth Scott

A book that has made me sad? Living Dead Girl kept me captivated in each page and I couldn't put it down. I wanted to know how it ended; whether the protagonist would be freed or not. The ending made me cry.


The Day Before - Lisa Schroeder

Book that makes me most happy? The Day Before! This book was bittersweet and it was enjoyable to read! I thought the characters were precious, and the ending was perfect!


The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan

My favorite book from my favorite series? The Lightning Thief! I fell in love with this series when I was twelve, and this book made a big impact on my life.


The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan The Sea of Monsters  - Rick Riordan The Titan's Curse  - Rick Riordan The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 4) - Rick Riordan The Last Olympian  - Rick Riordan The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, #1) - Rick Riordan The Son of Neptune - Rick Riordan The Mark of Athena - Rick Riordan The House of Hades - Rick Riordan

My favorite series? Such an easy question. Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus all the way!


Ten Ways to Make My Sister Disappear - Norma Fox Mazer

Book I have read more than three times? Definitely Ten Ways to Make My Sister Disappear. This book helped me through my childhood when I was having battles with my older sister; it was always made me feel better. When I read this book, I didn't focus on the quality of the writing (which was good anyway), I just focused on my connection with the main character. I loved this book so much!


Where She Went  - Gayle Forman

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

This book was absolutely beautiful! The plot was amazing and the characters were well written. It created so many emotions in me! It was the perfect sequel to If I Stay.

Clearly not book-related, but here I am, eating a delicious combination of M&M's and salted peanuts and BAM! beautiful sensation that tastes like angels on my tongue. Who had this brilliant mind to put such a mix together?

Now, the last time I tried mixing food together, it was Macaroni & Cheese with vanilla flavoring...it was not appetizing! At least I tried for the sake of mankind!

Though someone did make the Peanut M&M's, which can be the same as trail mix, but without the raisins. I don't know about everyone else, but I absolutely hate raisins! Dried up grapes? Disgusting.

This gets me thinking, what book characters have we come across that have experienced something inventive with food? I can't think of any off the top of my head, but I am sure they are there. If you know any, pleases let me know, just out of curiosity! :)

Nine days. N-I-N-E days. I have waited a year for the House of Hades to be released, and these last nine days will dwindle in the air and drive me insane.


What I want in the House of Hades:

1) A developing relationship between Percy and Annabeth.

2) A hard task that Jason accomplishes to make him a stronger character.

3) More Nico and Leo<3

4) A battle between Romans and Greeks.

5) Another giant to be killed.





City of Bones - Cassandra Clare I enjoyed how the book started right out with some action!! Building up to the climax the book did drag out a little bit, but when I got to the end, it was just a massive firework show of great twists and turns to the plot! Literally, so many twists and turns....
I really enjoyed the relationship between Clary and Jace. It was all natural chemistry between them and it didn't feel forced. In other books I read, it goes like this: Boy meets girl, boy is strange, girl falls in love with boy, boy and girl have a declaration of love. In the City of Bones, it went like this: Girl meets strange boy, girl is annoyed at boy, boy worries about girl's safety, boy and girl share many adventures before actually starting to get romantic. And by romantic, I mean only one kiss.
Overall it was great and I can't wait to start the next book!
Hush, Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick The plot was good, but I didn't like the style of writing. I didn't really sense the chemistry between Nora and Patch, and sometimes Nora was just plain stupid I had to bang my head on the book hoping I was imagining the things she was doing. Oh, and it took me a while to actually get into the book, like 300 pages is when it started getting exciting. But I did like it and it wasn't a bad book, and I plan on continuing the series. I just hope the next book has fewer mistakes.
The Day Before - Lisa Schroeder Real rating: 4.5 stars

I can sum up this novel in two words: beautiful and unique. I have never read a book written in a form such as this. There may have ben short sentences, but they are certainly sweet and descriptive. I enjoyed how fast of a read it was, and when I finished, I had the desire to go to the ocean. Amber and Cade's fears are reasonable and can possibly be relatable.
The only problem I encountered was believing the relationship between Amber and Cade. Yes, the whole novel was about them falling in love in a day, but I didn't buy it. The farthest I could see their relationship was as close friends being possible lovers in the future. Not instant lovers. Other than that, I loved this book.
The Eternity Cure - Julie Kagawa I've got to say I was slightly disappointed with the Eternity Cure. I feel as though it didn't carry the same feeling of awesome as the Immortal Rules did. The plot was a little too fast-past, leaving me with headaches due to taking in much information at once. And I did not enjoy the romance between Allie and Zeke. Well, maybe I did. But only a little. I hated how every time they were together, Allie had the same thoughts over, and over, and over. All about her wanting to drink his blood yada yada. I was still happy Zeke was in the novel; it was quite a pleasant surprise. However, I'd prefer Zeke to stay away only because HE TOOK AWAY ALLIE'S KICK-ASS PERSONALITY! It was still there, but when Allie was around Zeke, it seemed to melt away.
Other than those comments, the book was well-written. I have come to terms with one of my new favorite characters: Jackal. Yes, Jackal was a villain in the first book. And in the second he still is...sort of. I liked him so much for his humor. Almost every highlight on my kindle for this book is something Jackal said. Oh, Kanin was there, too. He was pretty kick-ass as well. Kanin never fails to disappoint, and honestly I'm glad he's okay.
Beside my slight disappointment, I really enjoyed this book and am excited for the next installment. Especially because of the minor cliff-hanger at the end.
Touch of Frost - Jennifer Estep Real rating: 3.5

I found this book to be interesting and unique among other fantasy books I have read. The concept of the plot was the seller to why I liked it this much, but at first I still wasn't too sure.
I didn't like the character development, which this book lacked. Especially in one character particularly: Logan freaking Quinn. He came completely from nowhere, and all of a sudden the protagonist is falling all over him, literally.
What my favorite part of the book is its humor. I found myself smiling and/or laughing at anything the characters said. The sense of humor was great! And I do plan on continuing this series.
