I must say, I did not know at all what to think about this book until I was finished. Then I discovered that I really liked it. This book was confusingly awesome and was definitely an emotional roller coaster. I found myself worrying that I would hate the ending, but it turns out it was pretty great. I recommend this book if you have loved all of Cassandra Clare’s other books.
Side note: If you were worried about buying the hardcover because of the sticker, it actually comes off very easily.
At the great urging of my dear friend Writer Writ- Wrote? I finally read this book. At first I wasn’t able to get very into it, but that changed quite quickly. Soon enough I was swept up in the unfortunate adventures of Lyra. I just finished the book this morning and greatly enjoyed it. I already have the next two lined up and will begin them shortly. Also, I got them all for a buck each at the thrift store. Which totally rocked. So do I recommend this book? I do, I do! If you want to go on a fantastically chilling adventure, read this book.
I haven’t been writing at all lately. I work on a computer all day and by the time I get home, my brain is a little bit fried. (Go excuses!) Anyway, as I was getting ready for bed last night I paused in front of a poster I have on my wall. Its a picture I have always loved, as it always fills me with a sense of mystery. I was looking at it for a while and I suddenly had to pick up my journal and pen. I then wrote most of the first chapter of my next book. It was awesome. After not writing for weeks, even though I only wrote a little bit, it felt freeing. Are there any pictures that fill you with sudden inspiration?
Here is the poster I am talking about. I love this poster.
I first found this book through Michelle’s Blog. I was immediately drawn to the cover and the description on the back. I just finished this book last night and I must say, it was fantastic! The book was fast-paced, exciting and heartfelt. I loved each of the characters and the humor. If you are looking for a great sci-fi, read this one. It was awesome. Super awesome! I will definitely be reading anything else she writes and am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Also, I totally think this song suits. I love this song.
I found this book for a dollar at the thrift store, hoping it might prove to be an entertaining read. Turned out it was! I spent the last week reading the whole trilogy and I was not disappointed at all. At first, I was not very fond of the main character Chloe, but she grew on me. There was definite character development in this series and I was very impressed. The story is fast paced and very enjoyable. If you are looking for an entertaining YA Supernatural series, I would recommend this one.
The next two in the trilogy are:
Did I mention I love the thrift store? ‘Cause I really do. I always wander through the two thrift stores here in town on my lunch breaks. The other day I found a book of short stories by L.M. Montgomery. It is awesome and from 1949! I am very excited. Have you found any bookish treasures lately?

What are you currently reading or planning on reading next?
So far my goals for 2013 have not even been attempted. I had just started my first day of exercise last week and then got punched in the face by the worst flu I have had in years. Three full days off work and then yesterday and today to rest. Shall have to go back tomorrow whether I feel good or not. So hopefully at some point this week I will be able to begin my next book!
I am sincerely hoping everyone can avoid this awful flu. If you have it currently, I wish you a swift recovery!
I just put this book down a few moments ago. Originally I wanted this to be the last book I finished before the new year, but instead it became the first book I finished in the new year. I knew before I even picked this book up that I wouldn’t be disappointed. Kate Morton is an amazing storyteller that creates such depth in each and every one of her characters. This book, just like her others, had an intense mystery that I just couldn’t wait to get to the bottom of. I finished this book in a couple of days and am really disappointed that it is over. This book left me with a feeling of wonder. Absolutely loved it! I would recommend each of her books and am really looking forward to any of her future work.
