How long has it been?

Over a month. The last time I posted was October 28th!!! So, since then, I'll post all the books I read every week since.


The Bermudez Triangle
Paper Towns


Sisters of Misery
The Blonde of the Joke


You Had Me At Halo
Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year


Invisible Touch


Secrets of My Suburban Life
3/4 Beautiful Americans

So, in total, I've read 8 books in November, averaging 2 books a week. Not bad I guess. In total, Invisible Touch by Kelly Parra was by FAR the best. Excellent. Paper Towns and Sisters of Misery were pretty great. You Had Me At Halo, The Blonde of the Joke, and The Bermudez Triangle were good but kind of boring. Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year was strange and good enough, and Secrets of My Suburban Life was REALLY predictable and shallow.

I'm reading Beautiful Americans by Lucy Silag and it's pretty good. It will be released in January. I also started BookSwim and just got my first batch of books from them, Pretty Face by Mary Hogan, Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, and Take Me There by Susane Colasanti. I also should by getting Willow by Julia Hoban soon and You Are So Undead To Me by Stacey Jay, and maybe a few other exciting ARC's!

Glad to be back!


Hope (Dec. 2)

I'm actually remembering to cross-post this time! Yay!

Last weekend was Thanksgiving Break, so I didn't have school for five days! (Including weekend, of course. :D) I took advantage of this time and was a bookaholic. Well, more than usual. :)

I read:
1. Fahrenheit 451 (for school)
2. Cycler
3. Bite Me
4. The Second Virginity of Suzy Green
5. Revelations (Blue Bloods 3)

I enjoyed most of them. Cycler was a bit... interesting. But I'll save the rest of that one for the review. :p Fahrenheit 451 was okay. I was expecting it to be a bit better, but I just found it really s l o w a lot of the time.

Right now, I'm reading Moonstone by Marilee Brothers. And I'll probably pick up another one here soon because I can't read just one book at a time.

Reviews are coming up soon! I'm scheduling everything right now to make sure that they all get written while I'm thinking about it. :)

I miss reading a book every other day


I am going to make a list... it will keep this post from getting too long.

1. Sovay by Celia Rees
2. Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith
3. Twenty Fragments of a Ravenous Youth by Xiaolu Guo
4. 1/3 of Untamed by P.C. and Kristen Cast

Those are the 3.3333333 books I've read this past week, and I am very happy because that's practically more than I read the entire month of September.

Sovay was good; not amazing, but not bad at all.

Tantalize was definitely interesting; I am glad I read it, because it was a different take on the whole vampire/werewolf thing. It was good; not great, but good.

Twenty Fragments... was a short book that I've had since summer that I hadn't gotten to yet, until this past week. And it was actually good. Everyone once in awhile I need something different than my usual, and this was definitely a good kind of different. For one thing, it was set in Beijing, and for another there were actual pictures in this book... not an abundance of them, but every so often there would be a picture thrown in among the text.

My favorite picture was the picture of the Chinese McDonald's. I work at McDonald's, and I also happened to be in McDonald's when I read that part... so I was mildly amused =D

Anyways, that was my reading week. I hope I'm not the only person who posts this week =(
