Currently Reading; Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will; the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

Unexpected Hiatus

If projects were people, mine would have abandonment issues.

I haven’t been on this blog for, what, one month and I am ashamed. I keep trying new things and don’t ever finish what I’ve started. I was really hoping that this blog would be different. Why? Cause it was suppose to  be about books and I LOVE books and I love to read! But, as usual, I allowed life to get in the way of doing things that I love.

My first excuse was that my laptop broke down. (R.I.P Lappy) but it’s not really an excuse when you’ve got access to an ipad, right?

My second excuse was that I was so busy doing things at home, but if you really love doing something, you’d make time to do it no matter what.

And my third excuse? Well, I don’t really have one. I procrastinated, to be honest. I would read and read and read and I would keep telling myself, ‘I have to do a review on this book!’ but I just never really got around to it.

Well now ladies and gents, I have a whole new computer!

Computer

I pretty much set it up myself 😀 (not that there was much to set up to begin with) and now I have no excuse not to be posting on this blog. I have an entire month again before school begins and I need to stop procrastinating my life away.

I am also thinking of making this blog more than just about books. Maybe a few personal posts on life and whatever else may come my way.

So, here; have a random chicken from my grandmother’s yard

random chicken

And wish me luck and I hope you will stick around and enjoy (^w^)

If there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: We all want everything to be okay. We don’t wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.

There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.

It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.

Currently Reading; Mind Games by Kiersten White

20130627-214422.jpg

Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future.

Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways…or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.

In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heart-stoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.

Bestseller’s YA list

Went into the bookstore with my mom today and saw that they had list of best seller books. This is what I saw in the YA part of the list.

Is it weird to feel proud of these authors?

I’ve read ALL of John Green’s and Veronica Roth’s books. I’m still waiting for ‘The Elite’ by Kiera Cass to hit our shelves and I still have to get a new copy of ‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak. ( I don’t what to talk about what happened to my first copy v_v ) and of course, who hasn’t read ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ by Stephen Chbosky.

Yep, I’m a proud reader ^w^
