Started reading Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Hello Bookies,

This book doesn't look as big as I thought it would. So I might actually be able to finish it pretty quickly. Probably too quick since I have a 14-hour ride down to Oklahoma in a few days. Anyways, I'm still not a huge fan of the books. The first one felt like it took forever to read. Like it dragged on and focused more on the details than on the actual story. I'm hoping the second book is a bit better. I also don't expect it to follow the movies because we are dealing with Hollywood here. They don't follow any books to the T. Wish they would, but they just don't. Anyways, I've only read the first chapter and so far it is okay. I can't say much because it is only the first chapter. I don't know if I'm feeling the book until I'm about halfway. First impressions are that my expectations for this book are very low.

So until next time.....

Manga Post #9

Bookies,

I'm still looking for recommendations for a new Manga series to read. Make sure you guys leave your suggestions on that so that we don't keep talking about the same two mangas every time I have a library pick up.

I think I'm still in the refresher stage with this series. Still, nothing I haven't seen in the anime yet. I know that the animes sometimes are different from the mangas but this time around it is pretty accurate. Anyways, the village is under attack and the 4th Hokage has to fight his fallen comrades slash teachers.  Anyways, things are going into chaos. Naruto is also on his way to help any way he can. I'm pretty sure that this volume is still going to be a refresher for me. So the post is going to be pretty short. Only because I am not really learning anything new. I just have good compliments to whoever made the anime because they did a really good job following the story. I just wish that there was more I can say because I feel like I should so that the post isn't so short. I'm hoping that the next volume will have something new in it. I'm pretty sure everyone has either read or watched the anime by now and we all know what happens after the attack on the village. But, I do have to admit that the volume I got was missing some pieces. Why would someone tear pieces out of a book? It's kind of heartbreaking to see. But it's something I can't help. Good thing I know what most of the story that is going on that I don't end up confused. I think this is the third Naruto volume I had to deal with something missing. The disrespect is real.

I started the anime series for Tokyo Ghoul and I don't hate it, but I don't like that it doesn't follow the mangas. I couldn't watch it without complaining to my mom about how out of order it is. Sadly I won't be able to see the live action movie while it's airing this week in theaters. I was really looking forward to that. Sadly, I don't remember any of what I read in the last volume because the anime has me all mixed up. Which just makes me sad more. So diving into this volume had a little bit of hope that it would remind me of what our main character went through. Which it did. Thank the Lord for small blessings. Anyways, there is a big battle going on because a ghoul is so obsessed to eat our main character that he even kidnaps a young woman as bait. You even get a little back story on one of the characters. But luckily the battle ends with the bad ghoul in defeat. Almost didn't happen but it did. Pretty much had me at the edge of my seat for that whole scene. So far I've been really into the series. I have to say that the mangas are way better than the anime. I wish I could tell you guys more, but that would just ruin the volume and the series. But, I do suggest you guys go check it out if you haven't.

So until next time......

Finished reading Never Never

Good morning Bookies,

I really hate cliffhangers. Especially when it comes to this series. This time around our lovely authors stopped midsentence. I'm sure everyone has read and knows how the books end, but I am a little late to the game. Anyways, just as I predicted the whole book was focused on Silas looking for Charlie. He found her but even more, questions rose while hardly any answers were given. Which just makes me want to request the next book from the library instead of whatever book is next on the holds list. Just so I can find out what happens next. These two authors never disappoint so far. Of course, I do have to be honest here and say that I haven't read any of Tarryn Fisher's book, but I'm pretty sure she will have me hanging on every word like Colleen Hoover does. But now I must play the waiting game until I can get my hands on part three.

So until next time.....

Started reading Never Never part 2 by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

So much reading, Bookies. Also when did I read the first part of this book? It feels like forever. Honestly, I'm actually surprised by how fast I was able to get my hands on this book when I requested it. I'm sure it's going to be a pretty quick read. Also, I think I would like to have all the books together next time so then I can read the whole situation all as one big story. That way I don't have to sit here wondering what is going on because it takes me so long to get the next part in the series. Anyways, I do remember that our two main characters keep loosing their memory for some reason. It's like the big mystery we have to solve or figure out in the whole series. And I do remember that the first book ended with one of our main characters going missing. I think this book is going to be focused on trying to find her while trying to remember what is all going on. This calls for it to be something interesting. But I'm going to go read now and get ready for my big road trip next week. Thank the Lord for book pick up day at the library.

So until next time.....

Back to reading Beautiful Oblivion by Addison Moore

I nearly forgot all about this book. I don't even remember all that I read so far. I might have to start from the beginning. Anyways, since I'm still waiting for some books to come in at the library, I thought I would read a book that I started but never finished. I can't remember anything, except that we have a girl who has a crush on her best friend's brother. Or, I think that is the story. I could be wrong. I wish I could say more, but there is nothing really to say. Maybe once I actually start the book again, I'll have a longer post. Right now I'm still wrapping up The Haunted. But I'm sure this book will be a quick read since it's an Ebook.

So until next time.....

Almost done reading The Haunted

Bookies,

Can I say finally? I'm almost done with the book. It feels like it took way too long. But sadly, I don't know how much more I actually need to read since Goodreads is down for the night. How am I supposed to share my opinions on the books I read? I'm sure the site will be back up when I post this. Anyways, I feel like I have learned nothing since the last time I posted. This is a very slow moving book. I hate to say it, but I don't really like it. But I don't hate it either. Of course, there was that one moment where Abbey thought she found out Kristen's secret boyfriend and she ended up being wrong.  Then we get some new mystery characters, but I think they are the same ones from before just disguised to look different. I only say this because I don't think they are actually human.  I'm thinking they are like demons or evil ghosts. Or, something like that. I'm not completely done with the book, but I'm pretty sure that I will be done in the next few days. If not tomorrow. I'm just hoping that the last book will be a little bit better than this one.

So until next time....

Manga Post #8

Hello Bookies,

I'm still on the search for new manga to read and I'm still looking for suggestions. Currently, I'm only reading two series until I find a new one to replace the one I had just finished. You are very familiar with the ones that I've been reading, so I don't think I need a long intro for them. Remember that if you guys want me to read anything, just let me know in the comments section below.

I wasn't sure if this volume of Naruto was going to still be a refresher for me or not. Maybe this was the part in the anime series where I was kind of watching it but not. Either way, it's still pretty exciting. The big match has begun between Sasuke and Gaara. It's not as detailed as the anime, but that is only because they have to fill in thirty minutes. Anyways, The match began and then the attack on the village takes place. All still a refresher for me. I know Naruto and Gaara fight each other at some point that is pretty soon, but I don't know when or how it turned out. So I'm looking forward to that. Either way, things are getting pretty good in the series. I think you get more into it if you read it instead of watching it on TV. Probably because you are making the whole show in your head. At least all of the excitement it just now starting to begin. I can't wait to read the next volume.


So far I am enjoying this series. I can't say that I love it quite yet since I'm still pretty early in the series. Anyways, we are still witnessing our main character getting used to his new life. He is still learning the ropes in fighting and who are all ghouls. It's all still pretty interesting and we are slowly learning the world of ghouls the more we read. Our main character still won't eat human flesh to survive. He continues with his coffee and sugar cubes. I know eventually, he will have to give into that side of him if he wants to survive. Or, did he already and I wasn't really paying attention. Shame on me if I wasn't. Anyways, there is a new ghoul being introduced. This one is one that not everyone really likes. From what I gathered, he is a bit of a troublemaker. I do have to say that the guy kind of gave me the creeps when he first arrived in the volume. I have to give the author credit for that. It's not easy to make you hate a character right away. I think it takes quite a talent that I still have yet to accomplish. Either way, the creepy character ends up feeding our main character to their own kind. Then he finds out our main character is a half-ghoul and then decides that he wants to eat him all by himself. I knew I didn't like the guy for a reason. Sadly that is pretty much where the volume ended. Sad face. I have already requested the next volume and I may have started the anime series that goes along with this manga. So, I think by the end of this volume I may be slowly falling in love with the series. It's pretty good. And, you know something is good when you don't even know your boss has walked into the room because you are so into what you were reading. Scared the crap out of me. But I think I'm going to have to highly recommend this series to people who haven't read it yet. There are still plenty of volume for me to read. Also I hear that there is a live action version of this series airing in selected theaters. Do I hear a road trip coming up?

So until next time.....
