The Anthropocene Reviewed is John Green’s recent book. It’s a nonfiction novel, which is not what I normally read, but I do enjoy his novels and have heard really good things about this one. I figured why not give it a shot. I’m almost finished with this one, and am happy to say that I am liking it!
I’m also reading The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and am enjoying this story SO MUCH! At this moment, I’m absolutely loving it and can’t wait to see where it goes!
A ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up since Simon died, but in the year since the Bayview four were cleared of his shocking death, no one’s been able to fill the gossip void quite like he could. The problem is no one has the facts.
Until now. This time it’s not an app, though—it’s a game. Truth or Dare.
Phoebe’s the first target. If you choose not to play, it’s a truth. And hers is dark.Then comes Maeve and she should know better—always choose the dare. But by the time Knox is about to be tagged, things have gotten dangerous. The dares have become deadly, and if Maeve learned anything from Bronwyn last year, it’s that they can’t count on the police for help. Or protection.
Simon’s gone, but someone’s determined to keep his legacy at Bayview High alive. And this time, there’s a whole new set of rules.
I have the tv show cover edition because this book is sold out! This is the only edition I could find in stores, and I’m not a fan of this cover…but oh well.
This is all I’ve been seeing and hearing about lately since the show came out. I really want to watch the show, but I also wanted to read the books first so I’m finally reading it. For those who have watched the show, does the show focus on just the first book or the entire trilogy? I’m trying to decide if it’s necessary to read the entire trilogy before watching the show?
This month I’ve been catching up on Cassandra Clare’s books. I’ve been reading her stories for a very, very long time and I always enjoy them. She puts so many books out that it’s hard to keep up, and to no ones surprise, I fell behind.
I recently finished Lord of Shadows. I don’t know if I will review it, or just do a post with all my thoughts which will probably turn out to be a very rambling post because that book was huge and so much happened!
Ghosts of the Shadow Market and Queen of Air and Darkness
At the moment I’m reading Ghosts of the Shadow Market, her bind up stories. The bind up contains ten stories, however, I’ve been told to only read the first eight stories and then read Queen of Air and Darkness, and then go back and finish the last two stories in the bind up because they’re big spoilers for QoAaD. So that’s my plan. I always read her stories in publication order so that’s why I plan to read it this way.
After I finish both of those books, I have to read The Red Scrolls of Magic, Chain of Gold, and finally The Lost Book of the White before I’m all caught up with her Shadowhunter books. As I said before, I LOVE her Shadowhunter stories, and the world that she has created. She has built on this world so much, and I’m so invested in this world and her characters, but damn she writes so many books and so quickly. It’s hard to keep up.
Welcome to WWW Wednesday! hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses. Please, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. So, let’s get to it!
The three Ws are: What are currently reading? What have you finished reading? What will you read next?
Since the beginning of this year…okay, lets be honest here, more like December, I haven’t read a single book. Every time I tried to pick up a book, nothing would hold my attention. I decided to just wait until I get back into the reading mood. And I finally have been getting into that mood.
I finally picked up a book. My first read of the year is The Wedding Dateby Jasmine Guillory. I thought this would be the perfect ‘getting back into reading’ book because it seems like it’ll be a light, cute, and quick read. Which are the perfect books to get back into reading with. I’m not that far into it, but so far I am enjoying it. So we’ll see how it goes.
Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn’t normally do. But there’s something about Drew Nichols that’s too hard to resist.
On the eve of his ex’s wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend…
After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she’s the mayor’s chief of staff. Too bad they can’t stop thinking about the other…
They’re just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century–or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want…
Today, and this weekend, I’ll be rereading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It has been quite awhile since I last read this book, so I thought a reread was due! Plus its 10 year bookaversary is coming up!
When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with odd markings. This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons–and keeping the odd werewolves and vampires in line. It’s also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in an ordinary mundane like Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….
For those of you who don’t know, this is the first book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. The same series the TV show Shadowhunters is based off of. Have you read this series? Do you watch the show?
So this Friday, and the rest of the weekend I plan on reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. A classic of course! This is for the readawatchalong that is going on in the month of December hosted by Maureen. You can check out the announcement video here: Harry Xmas To You
