Bookish Survey: The Fairytale Survey

Bookish Survey: The Fairytale Survey
Posted on July 31, 2014 in Survey / 0 Comments

Another survey, yay! This one is thanks to Mel from The Daily Prophecy, who was inspired by Jasmine from Flip That Page (the queen of surveys, basically), which is no surprise. PART 1. CLASSIC PRINCESSES. Pinocchio – The boy whose nose grows when he lies.Is there are book you lie about, because you feel ashamed for liking it? Twilight. I actually enjoyed it the first time I read it, but I read it when I was a lot younger and I hadn’t heard any of the bad hype it got. This was way before the […]

Where You Are by Alla Kar

Where You Are by Alla Kar
Posted on July 30, 2014 in Blog Tour, Book Review / 0 Comments

Main Points Writing Style: I liked the writing. I liked how it changed with each character’s perspective- for example, how when it was Lachlan’s POV, there were a lot more Australian terms. It was very engaging and straightforward. Plot: This was a romance, 100% all the way. There were very few moments where that wasn’t the main focus. But it was a quick, fun read and I enjoyed it very much. I wouldn’t necessarily say it was a light read, because there were some heavier themes discussed, especially towards the end. I had to search a long time to […]

Top Ten Tuesday #14

Top Ten Tuesday #14
Posted on July 29, 2014 in Top Ten Tuesday / 2 Comments

To learn more about Top Ten Tuesday or see the future topics, click here! This week: Top Ten Authors I Own the Most Books From Hm. This is a hard one because I often only own one book or series from each author! So I guess this would actually be what is the author of the longest series I own… Now, this would be a lot easier if it was Top Ten Authors I’ve READ the Most Books From. There’s a button on Goodreads that tells you that. So I can easily tell that I’ve read […]

Blogosphere Travels #9: LitRate, potentially the new Goodreads
Posted on July 28, 2014 in Blogosphere Travels / 15 Comments

  Hello everyone! Today I’m really excited because I found out about Ashley’s (NoseGraze) new campaign to start a bookish website similar to Goodreads. You all know how I can’t stop promoting Ashley’s work (she’s a true Coding Goddess) such as the UBB plugin and all her themes and design work, NOT TO MENTION her fantastic book blogging tips. As another blogger said, if you’re a book blogger, you’ve heard of Ashley. So this new website is going to be called LitRate. Ashley talks about it in this guest post. I’m thinking it’s going to […]

Day of Doom by David Baldacci

Day of Doom by David Baldacci
Posted on July 25, 2014 in Book Review / 0 Comments

Main Points Writing Style: The writing style is pretty consistent, even if it’s written by a different author than other books. Plot: What an epic ending. This book follows along the lines of the other books, with all the mystery, research, and clue-finding. It’s just a bit longer. And more morbid. Yes, important people die in this book, and I’m not really sure I approve. I never really felt close to them, but still, I don’t like unnecessary death, or death that absolutely destroys other characters (emotionally). The romance between Amy and Jake got really sappy in this […]

Trust No One by Linda Sue Park

Trust No One by Linda Sue Park
Posted on July 24, 2014 in Book Review / 0 Comments

Main Points Writing Style: The writing style is pretty consistent, even if it’s written by a different author than other books. Plot: Things just seem to be getting worse and worse! At least Ian’s innocent…for now. He’s still a jerk, though. But now they know that the spy in their midst is someone they’re really close to…and someone whose help they need! Well, not anymore. But still it’s disappointing. Especially when that person isn’t afraid to use a gun. It’s hard not giving spoilers here. What they’re after now is an unintelligible manuscript, written in a […]

Main Points Writing Style: The writing style is pretty consistent, even if it’s written by a different author than other books. Plot: Tensions continue to rise. There’s a huge breakthrough for the hostages, though- Phoenix escapes! And they were moved. And now they know where they are, even though they can’t tell Amy and Dan. But they’re all injured, with no chance of medical assistance. The even bigger (in my humble opinion) breakthrough in this book is the romance between Amy and Jake! But ooh! Amy still has a boyfriend- Evan! So many complications. He knows […]
