OH YA!!!! Today marks the day I get my first comment! Im just really excited!
He has done it again. He has created a wonderful series called the Women's Murder Club. True, the series did start in 2003, but don't blame me, I just figured out about this wonderful series a week ago. The only reason I knew about the author is because a friend recommended Witch & Wizard to me. Now 2 years later, I was skimming the book shelves for something to read, seeing as how I have basically read all the books I could, and I came across the 11th Hour, the latest book in the WMC series and I decided to give the books a try. And that, my friends, was the beginning of a wonderful friendship. I just started the books today and I have finished 2.2 books. THAT is how good the books are! Try them now!!!
Rate: 20/10, it is that good!
I have some AWESOME news for all you book fans! 2013 will be the year for books to turn into movies! Some great examples include the "Night Circus", "Catching Fire" and "City of Bones". So be on the watch for when these movies come out even if it is a year away.
What's black, white and red all over (i mean both types, red and read)? The Night Circus! It is one of my top ten most favorite books in all time history. The imagery produced from the writing is beautiful! I feel like I'm really there with the main character, Celia, who is a magician with a secret. Make that secrets. She is an illusionist, she has a ghost as a father and she is secretly, or not so secretly depending on how you look at it, in love with the enemy of the game. Yes, I said game. And I will leave it on that note, so you can read it yourselves to find out Celia's story.
Rate: Definitely, 10/10!
The All Souls Trilogy. I'm shivering from excitement just thinking about it. I just finished the second book in this somewhat new trilogy by Deborah E. Harkness. The trilogy is about vampires, daemons and witches who live in the 21st century. The main character is a witch named Dianna who is a historian interested in alchemy at Yale and doesn't know anything about her powers, just that she is a witch. When she goes to the library, she finds a strange book with words moving on the page, alchemical pictures and it feels as if it is alive, as if it is finally opening to her touch. Then, she meets Matthew, a vampire dead set on retrieving that book. Matthew asks Dianna why and he tells her it is the Book of Life, a book which holds all the secrets to vampires, daemons and witches, and it has never been able to open before to anyone. He tells her that she is a special witch. And there their journey begins to find the book, Dianna's lost powers and the answer as to why there is a connection between them. Dianna and Matthew's story spans over three books, however, there are only two published (the third is on its way). The first book is called " A Discovery of Witches", and the second is called "Shadow of the Night". These are amazing books and are definitely worth a try.
'Kay, so this is my first book review on my new blog!!!! I never thought I'd say that!!! First, write a comment if you are on my blog. And now onto the book review. First book review is about.....Invisible Justice by Kim Jewell. This book is about a group of kids who were tampered with as babies, given special abilities and then separated, except for the twins. The kids are now teens and are, one-by-one, finding what their power is and finding each other. The kids all group together to find out some answers to their many question, like, the elephant in the room, who gave them their powers? This a book about romance, mystery and the supernatural. As a matter of fact is one of my favorite books!
I rate this book: 10/10
By the way this is a free book on iBooks if ya want to try it on for size and it is also the first book in the Justice series.
You know that feeling on the first day of school. You're giddy and yet nervous. Well, that's what I'm feeling now. I'm excited to start a blog on books and yet nervous that this will be a flop. So cross your fingers it won't and keep watching. This is a blog about what books are amazing and which are boring.
