Weekly meme hosted by Book Journey
If you haven't noticed I finally figured out how to do that box colored thing... What do you feel about the color? Also, I updated the challenges section of the blog. What I was doing before wasn't working so I just did everything regularly. Let me know what you think! I'm doing a new meme this week. I've been admiring Icey Books blog for ages waiting until this week where I could finally participate in their meme: What's Next? Where I ask you what book I should read next out of a list I prepare. This week I start a new semester so wish me luck! My first class is at noon so I am in heaven. Only one of the days out of the week will I be waking up at an unreasonable time for a three hour class that is just one credit. The injustice! This week is still going to be a great week for books. I hope to read at least four books.
Past Week Reads
I also read Triple Your Reading Speed. It was a good book although it wasn't as necessary for me as others because I recently completed a program to increase my reading speed. It's all about the eye movements. Try not blinking too much and there were other things. I read The Mockingbirds in around three hours or my haphazard counting says. I'm not really sure. So all of my books were really fantastic. I can't wait to review them in February for you. Unfortunately I wasn't able to read Life is But a Dream like I wanted because I have to be a "new media" member and I'm too lazy to go to the North side of our county to sign up. Oh well... maybe more Life is But a Dream books will be added and not just the one "new media" book. One last thing - I have a new favorite out of this list. Can you guess which one? Don't cheat and go to Goodreads!
Past Week Reviews
The Happiness Project: A year long journey of one woman trying to become happier by being less nagging, being less snappy at her children, being a better friend, starting new goals, and overall doing things to make her a better person. It's the perfect book to start when you are thinking of resolutions.
The Truth About Faking: Girl falls in love with the most popular boy in school. Her plan to get him to take her to the dance is almost complete but then comes a new boy crashing into her life. She fake dates him but starts to have feelings toward him. A sweet romance.
Remembrance: Lizzie feels an instant connection to Drew who feels so familiar to her but with her having a boyfriend and Drew dating her best friend it seems that it was not meant to be. Can love that expands centuries endure when given a second chance even after it's revealed who they were and what they've done?
Two and Twenty Dark Tales: Twenty authors take the seemingly childish Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes and tells their own dark short story retellings.
Hera, Queen of the Gods: Hera gets all the responsibility. She must help find the Fates along with other gods and goddesses so the world can be safe. That's kind of hard to do when you don't know who you are fighting against and when you you are fighting it's with huge monsters that can end your life forever. There's also the problem of the boy she's falling for...
Looking for Alaska I might not be able to do. It'll be my first audio book if I can figure out how to work it. I don't have as many books I truly want to read because the library is taking forever to ship things. I mean 9 days for one book? That's ridiculous. At least I will start on my long list of indie books I need to review already. I finally was able to get Article 5 after four or five months so I'm pretty excited about that one. It would be nice if I can read all these books but only time will tell.
I'm reviewing some intense books but most of them are just children's books. I hope you enjoy my reviews!
