So we have our first drawing of Luna Lovegood by bestowers of ultimate grace and presiders of glorious tidings. I like it alot and am waiting for other drawings and cosplays as well. Let the games begin and may the odds be ever in your favor! :)
So yesterday I finished Allegiant after reading it for free from epubbud.com and I am shocked at the ending, overly surprised and kind of emotionless/numb. The ending is very surreal and so different that it has left me numb. Now other than the end, I wasn't overly fond of the book; there was too much going on and too much introduced in a short time that I didn't like it, and I've heard something similar with other people. I think this book acting as if it was the first book in a series with how much new information was introduced but the general ideas were nice, don't get me wrong, it's just that, again, this is the third book. After the overwhelming beginning and a bit of the middle, it gets better and things flow a bit more. You should still read it to have your own opinion though. Now here's my question; where are you guys? I haven't seen many responses from people nor many art/cosplays? So I'm wondering what is it that you guys don't like (this is a genuine question, I'm not criticizing anyone). I just want to know. Thanks guys!
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 everyone! So a couple of weeks ago I got a message on the blog's Facebook page from an author named L.R.W. Lee asking me to read and review a book she had written called Andy Smithson: Blast of the Dragon Fury. I gladly accepted, got the book (for free) a couple of days ago and began reading it when I had spare time. I finished the book today and liked it, alot. Even though it was below my reading/age level, I was captured by the storyline with the cliffhanger ending making me wonder what will happen next. There have been several books I've read that have kinda messed up the writing by making me not feel as if I could actually read the main character/narrator's thoughts, however I was not disappointed with the writing; I felt as if was in Andy's head and experiencing what he experienced which is hard to do. For my younger readers/those who have kids, I recommend this book for you/your kids.
So I finished the House of Hades by Rick Riordan and I loved it soooo much. I actually got it on the eighth for free from Tuebl (I love you tuebl) and began reading it. I was really excited for the book and read it every chance I got. At first I only slightly liked it, but then I began warming up to it and a bit longer and I was LOVING it. I read everywhere and anywhere; no one could take it away from me. There was a lot of great parts, few parts that were boring, one part were I didnt like what Riordan did (it has to do with Nico) and one part I absolutely loved with all of my heart (it has to do with Leo). I liked most of the surprises, but the main thing that (at first) bothered me was that the story wasn't done. It sounds silly, but I thought, in the beginning, that this book was going to be the end of the series. However, now, I find it bittersweet; there is another book where I can read more about the characters but I have to wait another year for it which will absolutely kill me. Also I think Riordan didnt make this book the end because I think he wants to make the HOO series 5 books like the Percy Jackson series which is a bit cool. Anyway I loved the book ALOT and want ALL of you to read it.
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!

This book is one of the books that have somehow built my reading "career" and will always be cherished. This book was not a direct gift someone but thanks to a giftcard and Fire - a book that has stolen my heart and also the second book in the same series as Graceling - I gained a book that, over time, would be one of my cherished books of all time. After I finished reading Fire, I immediately went and bought Graceling out of anticipation and was not disappointed. Five years later, the books still captures my heart and still surprises me. This book is about a girl named Katsa who is Graced with fighting and, whilst fighting, meets someone who will change her life for the better or the worse. If you didn't pick up on it before, I LOVE the book! There is just the right amount of action, flower power, romance and awesomeness that the book is for guys, girls or aliens; everyone should read this book.

Hey everyone! So I'm back with a review on United We Spy by Ally Carter, probably one of her bestest books yet. This final book takes place in Cam(mie)'s final semester at Gallagher Girl Academy were girls are trained to be spies. I can't tell you the rest because that just ruins the entire story/series for you, however I'll tell you this; the book was AMAZING! It had soooo much action but funnily enough it wasn't the explosion-in-your-face-everywhere-you-turn kind of action. It was good action with awesomeity surprises (yes I'm making up words but who cares?). I definitely recommend this book to everyone and anyone including guys.
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.
