Hi everyone! Geez, look at me posting 3 times in two day. You’re probably all done with me by now… yeah… sorry. Anyways, I was going to write a list of my favorite books that I’ve read in 2015, but honestly… I can’t really remember. I know, I know, I’m sorry! I haven’t been using Goodreads as much as I should be, so New Year’s Resolution #1: Use Goodreads more often. And also I was in the worst book slump when I started school this year and I feel like I’ve barely read. So I really don’t think that it’s going to be fair if I make a list of books that I don’t really remember and might not have even read. So instead I’m making a list of my Top 5 Must be read books in 2016. Carmel might kill me for this but shhhhhhh. Alright, let’s get started!
Yeah… so it’s been a few months since I last made a review… and you all probably think I’m dead by now… but I’m not… so you’ll have to deal with me for a little bit longer… sorry about that. So I was trying to through some excuses in my head, trying to figure out a way where I don’t sound like a total jerk about not updating… but then I came up with nothing. So yeah, I’m a total jerk. I apologize for my jerkiness. Well, here we are now almost at the start of 2016, which I will most definitely be miswriting on school papers, and I thought “My god, what are you doing with your life? You’ve been on a book slump for WAY too long! GET YOURSELF TOGETHER!”. So during school break I FINALLY picked up Magnus Chase again which I have been putting off for WAY too long. Plus I haven’t watched the season finale of Once Upon a Time yet (which I will watch right after I write this) so I needed a way to keep me away from spoilers. I KNOW, I KNOW, I NEED TO WATCH THE FINALE! I’M SORRY! I’LL WATCH IT SOON OKAY? And I’m pretty sure that’s all I have to say for now… So let’s get onto fangirling over Magnus Chase shall we?
Guess what’s coming out May 3rd? THE TRIALS OF APOLLO!!!!! YESSSSSSSSS!!!! And I am beyond excited!!!!! I’m just so ready to see Percy and everyone else! Apollo too of course, since the series is all about him. So this is my list of expectations I have for the book.
Hi guys! So I'm really sorry that I've been so inactive and dead lately. I'm trying my best to get out of this stupid writing slump and I'm super determined to be as active as I can for this month. So I made myself a little plan: read books then write about them. I know, I'm a genius.
Hey, guys! I'm back! Ok so this is a review on the book Prodigy by Marie Lu. It's the sequel to Legend, and the second book in the trilogy. So in this book Day, a thought-to-be-dead criminal, and June, the Republic's most wanted traitor, are both on the run, and they turn towards the Patriots for help. Ok, so if you have already read this book, please, read on. If you have not read it yet... QUICK, SHIELD YOUR EYES!!!
Oh. My. Gods. I'm so sorry that I've been so inactive. It feels like years since I last posted anything. I've been on this huge book slump and it was just awful. But thank the gods that I finally got over that. One of the reasons I was able to get rid of the slump was 'cause it's now SUMMER which means NO SCHOOL so I FINALLY have more time to read! And another reason was because of the book Legend by Marie Lu. It's the first book in the trilogy and I thought that it was great. It takes place during the future in the United States, but now the U.S. is separated into two different countries called the Republic and the Colonies. The story focuses on a guy named Day and a girl called June. Day lives on the streets and is the best known criminal in the Republic, while June is a high ranking soldier for the Republic. But after a tragic situation, their world's collide. Alright, if you have read the book, please, read on. If you have not read the book yet... SHIELD YOUR EYES!!!
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!!!!!
Hey, people! So right now I'm reading The Mortal Instuments series by Cassandra Clare. I have already read the second and third books of the series so stay tuned for those reviews. Basically, this book is about a 15 year old girl named Clary who unexpectedly gets sucked into a completely different world. Yep, you guessed it, it's a fantasy book. I must admit, it took me longer to read than I wanted, but I still thought it was great! If you haven't read it yet, I would definitely recommend it! And that is it for the non-spoiler part, so if you haven't read this book.......then...... QUICK SHIELD YOUR EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
