Reading The Last Star

Hey there Bookies,

My goal is to finish at least one more book before the new year. Also to finish chapter three of my book. But I will have to say thank the Lord that the holidays are over. It means more reading and posting for you guys.

I'm about a third of the way through the book. Finally. Anyways, things are just leading up to the day the mother ship rains bombs on earth. So the tension is high with everyone. Also someone is almost dead after being shot while an old lady gets shot in the face. You have to read the book to see what I mean by that. But things are pretty much going to be dragged out it seems since the huge battle doesn't happen until spring arrives. So I'm reading every thought and every detail that has been written down to keep the story going. Honestly I kind of see it as rambling, but I guess some people like that. I'm just not that type of person who likes the details and have the scenes specifically painted out for me. Don't get me wrong, the book is pretty good so far, but it feels like it's just dragging on. I'm to the point that I want to say "can we just get to the fighting already?!" and sure we had an old lady get shot in the face, but that doesn't really keep me going for the book. I need more then someone getting shot in the face. Hopefully the book picks up in the next third of the book.

So until next time......

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone. Sorry for not posting in a long time. Things have just been really crazy. I thought things would calm down after NaNoWriMo but I appear to be wrong. Things just got more crazy that kept me busy. I had decorating to do for Christmas, another writing contest to prepare for, promoting another story that is in two different contests, and getting presents for everyone. On top of that, I'm getting ready to move so I have a ton of stuff I have to go through. The Sad thing is I don't want to get rid of anything. Everything was a gift from someone and I hate getting rid of gifts. But I do have to downsize for the move. But I am still reading. Just not as much as I thought I would be. Hopefully, after all of this is done I can sit back and relax with a good book. But keep an eye out for posts on the books I have been reading. I'm not sure when I'll post again, but keep an eye out for them. I will do it as soon as I can.

So until next time....

Started reading The Night Circus by Erin Margenstern


I could have sworn that I made a post about this book already, but I guess I was wrong. I'm no that far into the book. But I know that I had to read it when I saw it at the library. I know the book has been out for a while and the majority of you have read it already, but that doesn't stop me from sharing my thoughts. My first impression of the book is that the cover looks unique. Also, the book pulls you in by making you imagine a circus that only comes at night and then magically disappears. Then once you are hooked, it pulls you into a new world where you are introduced to a magician and his daughter. Only thing is these characters are actually magical. They don't need tricks and illusions to actually pull off some of the things they do. But the book keeps you wondering as the magician makes a bet with an old friend to compete their best students. Loser has to give up their student and the father is so sure his daughter would win. I wonder if she will or it's going to be a huge start to a very interesting story.

So until next time.....

Started reading The Last Star by Rick Yancey

Hey Bookies,

I think it's kind of bad that I remember absolutely nothing from the second book. I don't even remember how it ended. So I'm going into this book highly confused. Also if I remember correctly, this is the last book in the series. Well, it was fun while it lasted. Anyways, I'm only three pages in so the first impression is going to be a little short. The cover looks pretty cool and I'm curious on how the title is going to play out in the book. I know that this book has to wrap up the entire series and humans have to win against the aliens to reclaim the earth. Another thing that I'm curious on playing out in the book. Right now I'm in a cave with a crying priest. Confused much?

So until next time......

Had to return everything....

Hey Bookies,

Due to the fact that I spent a whole month writing for NaNoWriMo, I had to return all of the books I originally checked out. Which kind of makes me sad. Anyways, I returned them and got a whole new stack. The new amount of books I have are The Night Circus, The Last Star, and two others that I don't really remember the titles of. Opps. Anyways, I'll be sure to request them back as soon as possible. But until then I have my other books that I have checked out to read along with some books that I got through giveaways that took place on Goodreads.

So until next time.....
