Hey, people! Yep, I'm still alive! Sorry I that I haven't updated in a super long time, I wrote 3 reviews and 2.5 of them deleted so I was in denial for the longest time. Caramel was also always on my back to update too so that another reason I have left my denial ages. Anyways, as you know the last book I reviewed was the City of Bones in the Mortal Instruments series. So I'm now doing the review for the second book in the series which is the City of Ashes which is also written by Cassandra Clare. Basically what's going on in this book is that Jace gets in trouble with the Clave because of who his father is. He along with Clary, Simon, Isabelle, and Alec are trying to figure out what Valentine's plans are. Also, Simon goes through some interesting changes. Okay, If you have not read this book then SHIELD YOUR EYES!!!!!
I just finished Rebel Belle by Rachael Hawkins. Since Miss Mayhem is coming out on April 7th (THAT IS SO FAR AWAY!!! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?), I decided to pick it up. Apparently it's a trilogy(?), but please correct me if I'm wrong. Anyways, I absolutely LOVED this book, it was funny, with enough action to make it interesting but not boring. The actual plot of the book is really hard to explain, so I'll just set up the first scene. There's this girl named Harper Price, who is a total southern belle. She is president of the SGA, about to be crowned homecoming queen, in every AP class in existence, dating the most popular boy in school, head cheerleader, you name it and she's got it. So it's homecoming night, and she realizes that she doesn't have any lip gloss on (it's really pretentious but just go with it) so everyone else goes into the gym and she goes to the bathroom. While she's in there putting her lip gloss on, the janitor comes in, locks the door, and falls on the ground. She turns around and realizes he has a HUGE sword wound in his stomach, he kisses her, and then dies (again, just go with it). THEN, as if that wasn't enough, the door explodes open and her history teacher comes in with a giant Arabian sword. I'm going to leave you at that, but it really is a good book. That's it for non-spoiler, so go read it and then come back to read my full review.
There's like a million and one books I need to read, so here's the few I plan to read this month.
So, I just pulled myself out of a reading slump in January, so there's a crapload of books that I've read that I still need to review...*don't hate me, don't hate me*. I'VE BEEN BUSY, OKAY? So, these are what I've read mostly in February, but there may be a few I read in late January.
I TOTALLY DIDN'T JUST MAKE THIS SKETCHY PICTURE OF MYSELF ON POWERPOINT
PLEASE NOTE: MY NAME IS NOT BUTTER FOR NO REASON (DEM DOUBLE NEGATIVES DOH). I WILL BE SALTY AND MUSHY AND GROSS AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE PROFANITY SO READ AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION.
'Sup people... It's Butter. Please don't think I sound angsty and dead-ish because that's just me after reading until two in the morning. I guess I like reading YA books because they're quite easy to get what's going on and they allow the sluices in my brain to open for all that rush of fangirling. However, I'm kind of being peer pressured into reading classics because "they're better for my reading comprehension" which is a-ok awesome but I'm still a child who dreams of random awesomeness... Not historical fiction. I'm sorry for being "that one kid" and I'm trying to transition, please love meeeee. Also my grammar sucks so please don't judge (Can you tell I'm half dead while writing this?).
Hi! I'm Caramel, the mastermind behind all of this. I've been reading forever. Seriously, my family calls me Hermione. My first memorable book that got me on the path of fangirling is the Harry Potter series, that I read in kindergarten. It was the spark for my bonfire of reading. I'll read just about any genre, or anything, truthfully. I'd probably read a bibliography if you gave me that too.
Hey! Gazelle here! I'm the resident PJO fangirl. The first book series I got into was the PJO series, then I read the Harry Potter books. I LOVED them all. I'm also a huge Lunar Chronicles fan. I actually love a lot of books, I don't think I can name them all. To be honest, I'm really not sure what to say next, Caramel just kind of shoved this in front of me and said, "Here, write something about yourself." I don't know what else to say, so if you could just pretend you're reading the most heart-felt thing in the world, laugh, smile, hold this to your heart, and maybe even shed a few tears, then that would be great. Thanks, I owe you one. Bottom line: I like books. A lot.
