Woo. I’m sick… again. Because I am sick, I’ll be able to read. A lot. This morning I finished Shadowland (The Immortals #3) – Alyson Noël and I am just about to start Seconds Before Sunrise (The Timely Death Trilogy #2) – Shannon A. Thompson. I absolutely loved the first book in the Timely Death Trilogy, Minutes Before Sunset, and have the opportunity to read the second before it even comes out. Shannon contacted me and asked me if I would want to review the second, and of course I said yes! I loved the first one and cannot wait to pick this one up. :)
*Big thanks to Shannon A. Thompson for sending me an eARC of Seconds Before Sunrise!*
Last night I stayed up much too late to finish Talented (Talented #1) – Sophie Davis *review* and this morning I started We Were Liars – E. Lockhart. I will most likely finish this one this weekend. I got We Were Liars as an ARC from Random House from a website that was known as randombuzzers. They discontinued the website so you cannot use it any more, but I will still read this book and review it. It comes out on May 13, 2014.
Because I had been participating in the #AReadAThon I read only Harry Potter from the 3-9 of this month. I plan to finish Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter #4) – J. K. Rowling soon and then I will be finishing Talented (Talented #1) – Sophie Davis which I requested from NetGalley. If I remarkably can finish both of those this weekend I will move on to We Were Liars – E. Lockhart. I got this ARC *advanced reader copy* from Random House Publishers in exchange for a review on this blog.
I just finished It’s Not Summer Without You (Summer #2) – Jenny Han and I just start Talented (Talented #1) – Sophie Davis. I got this book as an ebook copy from NetGalley. I requested it a couple days ago and got accepted to read it so I want to get it reviewed as quickly as possible. I’m on page 28 and I’m already really liking it. It reminds me of Evolution (Evolution #1) – Kelly Carrero and I really liked that book as well. These people have powers because of a toxic waste spill that contaminated all the bodies of water on the planet. I think it’s a very cool concept and I’m really excited to read it. There are also others in this series as well and I can’t wait to pick those up. When I finish that novel I will definitely pick up Shadowland (The Immortals #3) – Alyson Noël because I really need to continue on with that series to see if they get better than the second or can top the first.
Done with my update for the week, this weekend I plan to finish The Shadowhunter’s Codex – Cassandra Clare, Joshua Lewis, Cassandra Jean and start The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald. I started The Shadowhunter’s Codex at the beginning of December because I needed my Mortal Instruments fix… Have been missing it and CANNOT WAIT for City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) – Cassandra Clare. I haven’t finished it because it’s very odd and difficult to read. It’s written as a textbook, but for fiction literature. It isn’t that I don’t like it, I do, it’s just difficult to get through. I plan to finish that tonight because I want to be done with it. I will probably start The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald right after I finish Cassandra Clare’s novel. I love the movie of The Great Gatsby and have watched it three times. I almost cried so I don’t really know if I’m mentally prepared to read it, but I’ll give it a go. My teacher also wants me to read it because I’m “the reader” in the freshman grade…
#FridayReads is saying what you will be reading on Friday night (cause we’re losers) and over the weekend. Tonight I’m going to finish Fury (The Fury Trilogy #1) – Elizabeth Miles on the car ride to a Lego League competition for my brother. I am on page 290 of 370 so I should be able to finish this in the car tonight. After I finish that book I will proceed to read Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) – Richelle Mead. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about the Vampire Academy series and I’m very excited to read it. My way of choosing books is by drawing a book title from my TBR reading jar. I can never decide which book I want to pick up, so I draw one of the titles out and read it no matter what. I always finish series and I always always finish a book. Even if I absolutely hate it, I will continue on. Continuing on, after I finish Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) – Richelle Mead I will read Blue Moon (The Immortals #2) – Alyson Noël. I liked the first book (Evermore (The Immortals #1) – Alyson Noël) but it was very different. It was insta-love, which bothers me a lot. It’s so irritating to read and so….. almost forced I would say. Like I said, I draw from my TBR jar so then all my books get a fair chance…. I feel all guilty when I see all my unread books (over 100) sitting on my shelves staring at me…..
