Crazy for Summer Readathon // Wrap Up

All done with the Crazy for Summer Readathon which was really successful. I finished nine books in total although I did finish the tenth after midnight. I'm pretty happy I got through all those books. But first, here are the results for the daily challenge yesterday:

Books Started: Blue Lily, Lily Blue

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.                                                         


Friends can betray.

Mothers can disappear.

Visions can mislead.

Certainties can unravel.

I can't believe I started three series. I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm planning on reading a bunch of series this summer after this and completing ones I've started before. I had such a good time reading all these books and visiting new blogs. This really kicked my reading motivation up a notch.

Books Started: Unmarked by Kami Garcia

He is here... and he could be anyone.

Kennedy Waters lives in a world where vengeance spirits kill, ghosts keep secrets, and a demon walks among us–a demon she accidentally set free.
 

Now Kennedy and the other Legion members–Alara, Priest, Lukas, and Jared–have to hunt him down. As they learn more about the history of the Legion and the Illuminati, Kennedy realizes that the greatest mystery of all does not belong to any secret order, but to her own family. With the clock ticking and the life of someone she loves hanging in the balance, Kennedy has to ask the question she fears most: what is it about her past that has left her Unmarked?

I'm five days in and I still have three more books to read. I wanted to surpass my goal, but if I can read ten books I'll be really happy. I've been really lucky in that I've enjoyed all of my books and most of them have been four or five star reads. How about you?

Books Started: The Heist Society by Ally Carter
UnBreakable by Kami Garcia

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre…to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria…to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own—scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving “the life” for a normal life proves harder than she’d expected.

Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring Kat back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has a good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.

For Kat, there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

I never believed in ghosts. Until one tried to kill me.      
When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that paranormal forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a dangerous spirit sent to kill her. The brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night.               
Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay alive. Along with new Legion members Priest and Alara, the teens race to find the only weapon that might be able to destroy the demon — battling the deadly spirits he controls every step of the way.

Books Started: The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer--they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Okay, so I'm almost halfway through my list of goals and I'm pretty proud of myself. I also realize that I need to post my achievements in order to get cool little pics from the Crazy For Summer Readathon Hosts Tessa and Max. My goal is to try to read three books tomorrow. If only I would wake up early. I might be able to do it since I finished off I Was Here after midnight.

I hope everyone is having fun reading up a storm!

Books Started: Huntress by Malinda Lo
I Was Here by Gayle Forman


Nature is out of balance in the human world. The sun hasn't shone in years, and crops are failing. Worse yet, strange and hostile creatures have begun to appear. The people's survival hangs in the balance.

To solve the crisis, the oracle stones are cast, and Kaede and Taisin, two seventeen-year-old girls, are picked to go on a dangerous and unheard-of journey to Tanlili, the city of the Fairy Queen. Taisin is a sage, thrumming with magic, and Kaede is of the earth, without a speck of the otherworldly. And yet the two girls' destinies are drawn together during the mission. As members of their party succumb to unearthly attacks and fairy tricks, the two come to rely on each other and even begin to fall in love. But the Kingdom needs only one huntress to save it, and what it takes could tear Kaede and Taisin apart forever.

Cody and Meg were inseparable. Two peas in a pod. Until . . . they weren’t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

The second day of the Crazy Summer Readathon is over and I'm feeling competitive. I'm participating in this team challenge on Goodreads and I really want to back up my team and read a colossal amount of books this week so things are going to start getting crazy.

The View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg


Emma and her neighbor Peter are both lonely in a way that only bothers them on occasion. They both come from families they don't quite understand. They both feel like something big is missing from their lives and they're both about to search for answers. When Emma makes a discovery that shakes the foundations of her identity, she convinces Peter to join her for a road trip. Each of them has something to find: For Emma, it is a grave, a grave that may be her only connection to her family. Peter is seeking something harder to define, but perhaps easier to navigate freedom, a sense of something more than what he has. Together, they take to the open road, engaging in a universal quest to make sense of who they are and where they come from and learning a thing or two about love along the way.



Mrs Olinski, paralyzed ten years ago, returns to teaching Gr 6, and chooses four trivia team students, who become champions, in more than the state competition. Each narrates a section. Julian Singh, the strangest one on the school bus, invites Noah, red-haired Nadia, and silent Ethan, to Sillington House for tea 'always at four'.

Daily Challenge: Letter to a Character

Dear Blue,

Congratulations. You have worked hard to look cool and you have succeeded. Your nonchalance of the weird and abnormal make me wish I had your experiences. But, in all honesty I would have high tailed it and ran a long time ago. Your confidence is refreshing and calmness in dire situations kind of scary.

I know you don't think you are more yet, but there is more more in you than there is any other character I have ever met. Your ability to make things louder is just the beginning, but even without that ability you still are one female protagonist I will always remember. Your day will come though. Those boys of yours are just like you - meant for more. Just wait. You'll see. Good luck in your journey. I hope it all turns out well.

Remember to try not to kiss any boys but I won't blame you if you do.

All the Best,
Adriana

Books started: Jumping Off Swings by Jo Knowles

One pregnancy. Four friends. It all adds up to a profound time of change in this poignant, sensitively written YA novel.

Ellie remembers how the boys kissed her. Touched her. How they 
begged for more. And when she gave it to them, she felt loved. For a while anyway. So when Josh, an eager virgin with a troubled home life, leads her from a party to the backseat of his van, Ellie follows. But their "one-time thing" is far from perfect: Ellie gets pregnant. Josh reacts with shame and heartbreak, while their confidantes, Caleb and Corinne, deal with their own complex swirl of emotions. No matter what Ellie chooses, all four teenagers will be forced to grow up a little faster as a result. Told alternately from each character’s point of view, this deeply insightful novel explores the aftershocks of the biggest decision of one fragile girl’s life — and the realities of leaving innocence behind.

Answer to Two Truths and a Lie

#2: I read books while I watch TV.

(TV is too distracting to read books at the same time.)



Daily Challenge: Where I Am from Poem - Fandom Edition

This challenge is inspired by a poem by George Ella Lyon. You can see the original here. Basically, your challenge is to write a poem or short story with the style from this poem that describes how books, authors, and reading have shaped you as a person.

I am from my mother's lullabies, 
from the books she's read to me 
and the characters she portrayed.
I am from Dr. Seuss 
(A melodious symphony of nonsense rhyming).

I am from Hatchet, 
from My Side of the Mountain,
the awe-inspiring survival guides of my childhood.
I am from A Series of Unfortunate Events 
the dog-eared stories that showed me
the villainy that lurks out in the world, 
and from what inventive thinking, 
and sibling camaraderie looks like.

I am from the playful laughter of a silly tale, 
from shocking gasps of a hidden twist, 
and the squeals of conversations of couples that 
"don't really like each other."
I am from the world of reading.
I am from Harry Potter, 
from shocking deaths 
to hope that the good guys will always win.
I am from the Sisters Grimm, 
from fairy tales that make me wish 
there was magic in the world.
I am from Percy Jackson, 
from sarcastic moments 
and taking on your foes 
no matter how huge the task is.

I am from a storytelling world, 
from new perspectives, 
from sobbing because this character has moved me so much, 
and they aren't considered real.
I am from shelves filled with happiness 
and escape.

What do books mean to you?

Crazy for Summer Readathon Introduction


First of all, it's father's day and for all of you are celebrating I hope you have a lovely day. I've been waiting for the Crazy for Summer Readathon for what seems like forever because there hasn't been any real notice of readathon's during summer until this one. Summer classes are over and I'm a free woman which means all my time will be devoted to reading and reviewing. So without further notice let's get started introducing myself:

Two Truths and a Lie

1) I read books while I take notes in class.
2) I read books while I watch TV.
3) I read books while I ride in a car.

Which is the lie?


Daily Challenge: Getting to Know Me!

What is your favorite thing about reading?

Being able to experience a characters life. I love being able to see lives from different perspectives and sympathize with what they are going through. I love to see my favorite characters grow and find happiness. I also love being shocked and worrying over them. It' kind of amazing being able to feel all these emotions for a character who isn't even real - to be moved by them.

What is your favorite thing about blogging?

Mostly it's the interaction I get on here with other bloggers who love to read. I also love interacting with them on their blogs because they have such unique ways of thinking and are incredibly creative.

What is your favorite thing about Summer?

My favorite thing has to be that I get a break from everything. I love the warm summer air, but iI wouldn't be able to enjoy it if I was stressed out from school.

If you could take a summer vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I don't really know many places out in the big wide world excellent for a summer vacation other than Hawaii. I would love to hike, bike, swim, soak in the sun, and maybe even learn how to surf. Beaches everywhere is my idea of a perfect summer getaway.

What is your favorite book of the year so far?

Made of Stars by Kelley York has the cutest romance ever. Kelley York seriously knows how to write.

Coke or Pepsi?

Neither... If I was dying then Pepsi.

Fantasy or Sci-Fi?

Umm...... Fantasy? I read a ton of fantasy and sci-fi books so this ones hard, but magic always wins.

Hardcover or Paperbacks?

Hardcovers are too pretty to not pick.

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Vanilla!

What is your favorite TV show at the moment?

I binge watched Sense8 on Netflix when it came out and nothing has drawn me in like it did for a while now. I'm sure Teen Wolf will change that. Oh and did you all know that they are making a Series of Unfortunate Events show on Netflix in 2016? Got to love Netflix.


Goals

I'm giving myself the goal of ten books because I'm crazy like that.




I want to be able to review all the books I complete plus once again catch up on my reviews.

The achievements I'm going for are:

  • TBR Tackler: Read 5 books from your to be read list.
  • Summer Sensation: Read a book that is set in Summer (Bonus if it set at the beach!)
  • Genre Guru: Read books from 3 or more different genres
  • Rapid Reader: Read 400 pages in one day
  • Library Lover: Read a book you got from the library


You can still sign-up! Good luck everyone.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Cycle #1. Scholastic Press (Sept. 2012) Library
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.

His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.


I could not handle what was going to come at me as I read The Raven Boys. You see on almost every blog and it's given rave reviews. I couldn't prepare myself with the unbelievably AMAZING writing and storytelling that Stiefvater showcase in The Raven Boys. Everything and I mean everything was done brilliantly well. The pace, the characters, that story - all of it was perfect. I'm sure you have heard it before, but in case you haven't read The Raven Boys do yourself and read it and you can come back and thank me later.

I love that I keep on doing this. I don't read the summary of a book right before I read it. It's so much better that way because by then I've forgotten and it's oh so much more interesting when the story unfolds. Blue is our main character. She's weird. That's her niche and she's just so freaking cool. She lives with her mom and other psychics. She's known for the longest time not to kiss a boy because if she kisses her true love, he will die. Now with this premise you would think I would have dealt with a romance, but there isn't too much of that at all. The whole story revolves around Gansey who has an obsession that his friends Adam, Ronan, and Noah have tagged along on.

Blue is pretty much the coolest girl around. She's confident with herself and her weird upbringing. She has such an incredible voice and I just love her okay? Gansey took me a moment to like. He's supposedly dying this year and is a really integral part of the story. He's very... logical. It takes a while to get used to him, but the chapters in his POV help a lot. Ronan is the resident bad boy, but he takes that trademark into the next level. He's a brute with harsh words on his tongue and distrust in his heart. He's pretty much as amazing as he sounds. Adam was difficult for me to understand, but I think that's because I was seeing him from the eyes of Gansey mostly. Although, he had some chapters with his POV as well. He wants to so badly to be independent - to stand on his own two feet - that his decisions are still tough to process. Noah is kind of adorable because he has a really sweet bond with Blue. He kind of just knows things so he's pretty much in par with Blue.

I know I can't fully explain how glorious this book was. It's not a book I can review as best as I can because there is so much that is going on that I can't write. it's just a combination of weird and cool with a great pace, plot, writing, and characters. The raven Boys is just unbelievable good and I'm completely in love with Blue and her raven boys. I can't wait to read The Dream Thieves because that ending was insane. So many unexpected and thrilling moments and it's not even a fast pace read. Just read The Raven Boys. Just read it.
"She recognized the strange happiness that came from loving something without knowing why you did, that strange happiness that was sometimes so big that it felt like sadness. It was the way she felt when she looked at the stars"
Which character do you think resembles your personality the most?

Lumberjanes #1-2

Lumberjanes #1. Boom! Studios (April 2014) Library
WHY WE LOVE IT: Five best friends spending the summer at Lumberjane scout camp...defeating yetis, three-eyed wolves, and giant falcons...what's not to love?!

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: It's Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Gravity Falls and features five butt-kicking, rad teenage girls wailing on monsters and solving a mystery with the whole world at stake. And with the talent of acclaimed cartoonist Noelle Stevenson, talented newcomer Grace Ellis writing, and Brooke Allen on art, this is going to be a spectacular series that you won't want to miss.

WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley are five best pals determined to have an awesome summer together...and they're not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way!


Five friends venture into the woods and what awaits them is the start of an adventure. A battle with three-eyed foxes leads to questions. Questions about what "Beware the holy kitten" can possibly mean and what sort of summer this is going to be. All Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley know is that they are in this together.

I'm going to the state the obvious right now. Comics are so short. No wonder my brother has a whole hoard of them packaged away in boxes. It's going to take reading so many comics to get to the really thick of Lumberjanes' story. Each comic is going to be a small snippet in the Luberjanes story line. Saying that, I wouldn't really mind it if I had access to more of the series because it doesn't feel like much is going on in this one issue.

Now with my little rant on comics done; let's discuss the story shall we? The five friends from the Roanoke Cabin (hopefully this won't take a literal path) are fighting monsters when we first meet them. The monsters aren't explained. The girls also just happen to have the skills to fight them off. This is the start of a series so I'm not bothered that none of this is explained yet. I just expect it to be later on. The story is leading the girls to a quest so it looks like I'll get to know more soon. 


The personalities of the friends are as varied as their looks. Jo is a leader type, April is the cute, fun-loving one, Mal is freaked out by the whole experience, Molly is the worrier, and Ripley has an impulsive attitude towards everything. Ripley also doesn't have a care in the world. I don't know how I will be seeing growth in her, but I hope I do as well as with all the characters. I feel like I see cliche's in all of them though. They remind me of characters that I have already read before. Although, I don't really know them well enough yet to conclude that's the case. I do really like the personality of April. She reminds me of Mabel from Gravity Falls and in this instance I don't mind the similarities. She acts silly yet she knows how to handle herself. I don't have a clear opinion on this series yet because it's just started. I hope I'm able to get to know the characters and their purpose at the camp soon enough.


Lumberjanes #2. Boom! Studios (May 2014) Library
When you're a scout, nothing is more important than being prepared, but how do you prepare for legions of supernatural creatures threatening to beat down your scouting camp's door? Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are about to find out! It's just supposed to be a normal day at camp with games and a bit of canoeing, but when the girls find themselves separated from the rest of camp they realize there really is a lot more going on and it might be a unhelpful river monster that gives them the key to figuring everything out.


                  



Like Lumberjanes #1 we start back off in an arbitrary place when we see Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley again. Before it was the woods and now the friends are headed canoeing with their camp counselor. I saw a lot more of the character's personalities in this one. Molly is now becoming a favorite of mine. If I was anyone out of the group I would be the one who worries all the time and that's Molly. I do hope she gets a moment to shine. She might start to blossom already because it looks like she and Mal are crushing on each other. I'm still not sure about how the series is going to flow. It feels very disjointed with the first two issues. I'm not overly excited about it either so I will only continue on if I get the chance to borrow the rest of the issues from the library. I do have to say that the art is delightful. The coloring is spot on. 



Do you read comics?
Do you like the short pages or prefer graphic novels?
