I SURVIVED DAY ONE!!!!
To bad I failed ridiculously well in the area of reading.
I blame the fact that I was driving a good chunk of the day. Can't exactly read and drive simultaneously. Well, you could, technically, just probably shouldn't. I was tempted though....
Pages read: 64 (awesome right?)
Books finished: none
Currently reading: The Falconer
Opinions so far
My Feeling in a GIF
Because Monty Python is the best so it is only fitting
My feelings in words:
YESSSSS! AILEANA!! KIARAN!!! DERRIK!!! GAVIN!!!
AHHHH LOVE THEM ALL!!!!
I'm only halfway through and gahhhh can't wait! I'm not a huge faerie fan but I'm loving the lore and the characters and the setting and GIVE ME ALL OF IT!!!!!
Okay, I'm calm now. But seriously, read it.
Okay, now it's not Bout of Books without a few challenges thrown in so here is the challenge for day 2 -
Books I'm looking forward to in 2014
The Blood of Olympus (Heroes of Olympus #5)
by Rick Riordan
I still haven't read #4 yet (shame on me) but IT'S FREAKIN RICK RIORDAN Y'ALL!!!
Beyond excited! Gah! I don't want it to end though!!! Ughhhhh but I need it nowwwww.
Talon (Talon #1)
by Julie Kagawa
The Murder Complex (The Murder Complex #1)
by Lindsay Cummings
Ummmm....murder rate higher than the birth rate? Say what you will about me but I'm hooked. Also, assassins.
So death, assassins, and action. Basically my perfect book....
Let's hope for awesome characters and I'll be game.
Ruin and Rising (The Grisha Trilogy #3)
by Leigh Bardugo
First off, let me just point out how beautiful those covers are! Gorgeous!
Okay, so I hate to say that for some reason I wasn't in love with the second book. Sturmhond was who really made me at least enjoy it. However, this plot line and just series in general and I love it. I can't wait to see where it goes and get immersed back in the mythology and THE DARKLING!
Midnight Thief (Midnight Thief)
by Livia Blackburne
Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3)
by Sarah J. Maas
This series can DO NO WRONG (knock on wood)! But seriously, this series is phenomenal. The characters, the plot, the MYTHOLOGY!! Can't....can't handle! And..........
The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1)
by Marie Lu
HAVE YOU READ THE SYNOPSIS?!?!?! Like, WHAT?!?!! Powers and vengeance and secret societies and secrets and and and AWESOMENESS!!!!!!
Also, this little part of the synopsis has me sold -
"I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.
It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt."
I need this now.
Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms #3)
by Morgan Rhodes
FANTASY! WARRING KINGDOMS! YESSSSS!
So this is a very short list (my TBR needs to be updated believe it or not!) but these are some books that I would punch people to get. Just kidding. Somewhat....
So what books are y'all looking forward to this year?
