So I read and finished Empower by Jessica Shirvington, Fangirl and Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell and The Last Stand of The NY Institute and What To Buy The Shadowhunter Who Has Everything by Cassandra Clare and long story short , they were all BRILLIANT! I loved them so much with Empower there was so much emotion and feeling and a whole lot of action. Fangirl and E&P were awesome with the amount of emotion and the awesome writing and real life feel of the books. The last two books were pretty good; I especially loved the NY Institute because it talked of the circle and introduced a lot of backstory to the people in The Mortal Instruments. With WTBTSWHE (thats long even in an acronym!) I loved the demon and also I just found it entertaining just to see Magnus freak a bit. All in all the books were FANTASTIC! Tata for now!

Hey peoples of the world! So I have had a really hectic and busy week so I didn't get much reading done however I did get the new Titan's Curse graphic novel and the new Clockwork Prince graphic novel which I started yesterday and finished today. First let's start CP; it was good, it was exactly like the book and followed it nicely. The pictures/pages (except the first couple of pages) are grayscale, but they still look vivid and real and most of the characters look as I thought they would. The only character who looked a little different than what I imagined was Cecily. Everything else was perfect.
Now, for Titan's Curse I was slightly disappointed as they missed a couple of somewhat important and funny scenes that were in the regular book. As well, from the beginning you can't easily distinguish who Thalia is or that she's even in the book as she looks and dresses in the book almost exactly like Percy which threw me off from the start. All of the pictures were colored, which should have helped but didn't when it came to distinguish Thalia from Percy. Another thing I want to add is that, personally, I thought Nico would look a little older than as they drew him in the graphic novel; he looked seven! Other than that, everything was good.

Hello world! So I am sorry for not blogging for a while, but I have been insanely busy (still am actually) however I wanted to do a post about the books I've read so far as well as make an announcement that you guys will LOVE! First the announcement; I wanted to do something fun and that is for all my book fans to send in your artwork/ cosplays of any thing related to books to the facebook page or on here and you could be featured on the fb page and the winner of the week will be spotlighted on the blog. One winner for the artwork and one winner for cosplay. May the games begin and may the odd be ever in your favor! Now onto the books part, so this past week I have finished Endless by Jessica Shirvington, The Fall of the Hotel Dumort by Cassandra Clare and Son of Sobek by Rick Riordan. Now my favorite of these has to absolutely be Endless because there was something for everyone, it was filled with ALOT of good action, alot of surprises, some romance and an ending that I didnt see coming. It was so good that I had that thing where you can't really think about much else book wise but I still read The Fall of the Hotel Dumort anyway which may have been a bad idea since it may have made me kind of not like TFHD a little. It was a bit boring because there wasn't much to the book however there is a kinda sorta interesting story line which explains a little bit about vampire behaviour. Anyway onto the next book, Son of Sobek. Okay, I finished that right after I read House of Hades but I just forgot to blog about it, but you didnt miss much. Although I liked the fact that Percy Jackson met Carter Kane, I left wishing there had been more of a plot/storyline and wanting there to be more books that had Carter and Percy together. I did like the ending but no spoilers so you'll have to read it for yourself.

Hello readers of the world! So this past week I have been really busy but I somehow (thankfully) found time to read these three gorgeously awesome books; Gone: Michael Bennett by James Patterson, Sweet Legacy by Tera Lynn Childs and Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. I haven't read the first two books and loved them very much, but I already read clockwork Princess and I still love it and I also discovered new things in it still. All of the books have a lot of suspense and a gazillion times more action with a sprinkle of romance. I love these books so much and now I can't wait to read House of Hades tomorrow!

Hey everyone! So a couple of days ago I finished both Saving Raphael Santiago by Cassandra Clare and Prep School Confidential by Kara Taylor. I'm sorry but out of the two books, Prep School Confidential won hands down. Saving Raphael Santiago was good and probably the best of the Bane Chronicles books so far with the amount of sass that came out of Raphael's mouth causing me to literally LOL. However, Anne Dowling, the main character in Prep School Confidential, beat Raphael and Magnus' sass, character and awesomeness hands down. The book was about a girl who, at her last school, may have committed a "small" felony and thus gets sent to dumb boarding school where the school is built upon secrets that will come to light if Anne will get her way. There is ALOT of suspense, action and mystery as well as some romance that will not cause you to want to throw up. Believe me, the book is absolutely GORGEOUS and the best part is that a second book is coming out March 4th 2014, so the game is still afoot!

Hey everyone! I'm back with FIVE book reviews; City of Ashes, City of Glass, Seven Minutes in Heaven, Night and Since You Asked. Because there is only so much I can write I will say this; City of Ashes was awesome as per usual and City of Glass was a bit of a let down as per usual (I've read these books several times), COG was a let down only because I don't find the book as entertaining as the others maybe its only bc there isnt much action till the end of the book? IDK but youshould still read the books/series. Seven Minutes of Heaven is not the weirdo kissing game but an actual book, the last book in the Lying Game series. Let me just say that this was probably the BEST book out of all the series because there is a HUGE twist and a lot of good twists. The book was unbelievable! Night by Elie Wiesel was/is actually a book that my friend B lent me that is a memoir of a man who actually lived through the Holocaust, and it was vvvvv good; there was a lot of description (don't worry its not the kind of gory bloody description) which just made the book that much better. Since You Asked by Maurene Goo was a goodish book that was a somewhat normal realistic fiction book about a Korean girl's life as she goes through her sophomore year in high school. It was a letdown because it was kind of boring and it only took me an hour which isn't a good thing in this case.

Hey everyone! So yesterday I went to see City of Bones with my friends B, H, IR and T. All of us LOVED the movie so much that I got B, T and H to promise to read all the books (IR already read the books, the rest haven't). I don't want to spoil it at all but I do want to say that it was BRILLIANTLY close to the book of course there were some differences but they made up for it with amazing action sequences and some added scenes which was great. This is definitely a job well done; the cast and crew portrayed their characters to perfection. Such a great movie....I haven't stopped raving about it. Everyone 14/15 and older should definitely watch it (I say 14/15 and older because there is mature content in it of course). You should still watch it though!

Hey so as I promised on Facebook, I would write a review on The Rise of the Hotel Dumort today or tomorrow and here it is. First things first is that tuebl is finally working correctly and you can get this ebook from there like I did along with, I think, the rest of the released Bane Chronicles ebooks. Now for the review. The (e)book was really good, it kept me entertained for the hour it took me to read the (e)book. As you can tell from the title, this (e)book is somewhat on how the Hotel Dumort got its name and how Magnus Bane fits in to this story. I liked the (e)book as a whole. The only thing I didn't like was how short the (e)book was. I understand that the Bane Chronicles are supposed to be short, but this one felt shorter than the previous (e)books. You guys should still read it though because it's still a good (e)book.
Hi everyone! (sorry this isnt a book review more like book news) So my dear friends on tumblr have informed me that City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare will actually come later than expected on May 6, 2014. This only means that the book is longer and better (cant wait). Talk to you guys again in a bit!
OMG! So as most of you know, What really happened in Peru by Cassandra Clare came out today as an epub and I just got it for FREE from this amazing site, it is not epubbud it is something different but as reliable! It is: http://tuebl.ca/book/show/id/46445
I highly recommend this book for all you Shadowhunter wannabes out there (i'm one so its ok).
Ok so a little more than a week ago I said that in a week, to give all who have not read CP2 a chance to read, that I would blog like there is no tomorrow about CP2 and there would be MAJOR and minor spoilers. So if you have not read the book do not look at this blog post (and maybe a couple of future posts) until you have read the book or else the book will be ruined.
