Better Late Than Never

It's late, but I feel the need to post. I am one of the creators of this blog, and I haven't even posted in forever. I am ashamed =(

Anyways, this is what I've been reading.

City of Bones and City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. Can I say one of my new favorite series? Talk about an awesome story and some pretty awesome fantasy creatures. Shadowhunters... how fascinating. I think they are completely awesome (both the Shadowhunters and the books) and now I am dying to get my hands on City of Glass.

The Hunger Games by oh gosh who's the author... *brain fart* Anyways.... OMFG this book was amazing. By the first chapter I was hooked. There is something so interesting about futuristic worlds and strange scenarios... and just the images in this book were so vivid and scary... I couldn't put it down. My school librarian said that it would make a good movie... and I wholeheartedly agree. I'd go see it on opening night.

In related news... does anyone know anything about the second book? Anything at all?

Skinned by Robin Wasserman. Another futuristic world, extremely similar to the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, which I absolutely adored. This book is another one that I have a hard time putting down, and I am about fifty pages or so to the end... I plan on finishing tomorrow. Anyone read it? If you have, I would LOVE to talk about it... it's just one of those books that I need to talk about. So if you've read it please send an email (bookluverreviews@hotmail.com) or something, I'm desperate!

So that is my book-related news. My next book on the list is Twilight, which I'm going to reread for the third time before the movie comes out. After that, Sovay by Celia Rees (I adored her book Pirates, and also Witch Child and Sorceress)

Now that I am done sharing my thoughts (and seriously, please take me up on the email offer if you've read Skinned... or just go out and read it-- believe me, it's worth it-- and then email me. Either way works =P) I'm going to go get ready for bed, it's gonna be a long day tomorrow!
