Today we got to read during one of our classes and I almost started crying because of Jace and Clary. I can’t even. It is so sad. I just got to the part in City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3) – Cassandra Clare where Jace came to Clary’s room in Alicante and he said, “There is no pretending,” Jace said with absolute clarity. “I love you, amd I will love you until I die, and if there’s a life after that, I’ll love you then.” WHAT? THAT IS SO CUTE AND SO PERFECT. I can’t wait to finish this book. I have so many feelings invested into this series. If Jace dies during the last one I will go all Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters and write a strongly worded letter to Cassandra Clare. I will need a different ending.
Last night I finished Frostbite (Vampire Academy #2) – Richelle Mead and I really enjoyed it. This morning I started The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2) – Rick Riordan and am really enjoying it so far. It’s a little too young for me to completely enjoy, but I like the storyline. The plot hasn’t really taken off yet, though. After I finish the second Percy Jackson book I plan to pick up Legend (Legend #1) – Marie Lu.
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.
This weekend I plan to finish The Legend of the Moonstone: A Series for Kids and Young Adults – Meglena Ivanova. It’s a very weird book and the concept is really weird. These people things live on the Moon and then go to Earth and it’s just odd. I don’t know. I don’t hate it but I’m not loving it as of right now. After I finish that book I will start It’s Not Summer Without You (Summer #2) – Jenny Han.
This week has been very exciting for me. I read and reviewed Minutes Before Sunset (The Timely Death Trilogy #1) – Shannon A. Thompson and also had an author interview (here). I liked it a lot and after that amazing endeavor, I got another email asking if I would: read, review, have another author interview, and have a guest blog post. Meglena Ivanova emailed me and asked if I would read her book, The Legend of the Moonstone: A Series for Kids and Young Adults. I am so excited and am so proud that I have gotten this far in such a short amount of time.
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…
