Well it has been a some what slow week. I only got one book in but let me tell you it was good. And what would that be, you may be asking??
Well it would be CANDOR!! This book actually just came out last Tuesday, the 22nd. I read this for the 1 ARC Tours. You can check out my review of it here. It took me a little while to get into but once I did it was great! Other than that nothing that I can think of has really happened. I started Madapple by Christina Meldrum today. I read a review of it on Goodreads, and just from the first paragraph of that I can't wait to finish it and see how it goes. If anyone has read it, please let me know what you thought.

So in the middle of a very hectic week...NYC on Friday, field trip to URI on Monday, off to a Red Sox game tonight...I did manage to sneak in one book!
I just finished reading Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs. Think female Percy Jackson - Phoebe, the main character, discovers that her mom has fallen in love, is getting married, and they're moving to some random, mysterious Greek island. But wait, that's not all. Once she arrives on the island, she discovers that it's filled with descendants of Greek Gods and Goddesses - and they have powers. As the only mortal girl on the island, Phoebe is definintely feeling a little self-conscious about entering the ultra-exclusive Academy - her alternative high school for the next year. So what's in store for Phoebe? Will she make any friends? Will her new step-sister fit the typical evil step-sister stereotype? Will she ever see her friends from back home again?
First, let me just say that I love the Percy Jackson series. So I was definitely psyched about reading this. And it didn't disappoint! While the Percy Jackson series is more action-adventure and mystery - this is more high school girl romance. The jokes, jabs, insults and super power demonstrations were definitely funny and I really liked the character of Phoebe. I'll be getting a copy of the sequel...Goddess Boot Camp.
Up next...Slob by Ellen Potter and Hunger - the sequel to Gone.
