Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My Most Anticipated Release is:
THE SEQUEL TO 
Stolen: A Letter to my Captor
by: Lucy Christopher
I remember the good ole' days when my copy looked like that. Then, I read it a couple hundred times. Now, it looks like it got ran over by a truck. 
          Stolen is one of my all time favorites. For some reason, all my WoW as of now showcases a book with a creepy stalker...WONDERFUL!
          I found out that there was going to be a sequel after stalking perusing the comments on the author's website or blog, I don't remember which, but I do remember reading comments. I found out and SCREAMED! I was SO FUCKING HAPPY! Lucy is still writing/planning the book, but she says that there will/might be a second book. There is no expected release date as of yet. But, I am still excited for it. TY!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU! 

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: ten books from my childhood years I'd like to revisit. From Broke and Bookish

1. If You Give a Pig a Pancake
Yes, I am aware that this is a picture book. But do you see that pig?!?! It looks so cute. I remember doing this project in 1st grade because of this book. It was one of my writing pieces. I just want to read this to my cousin and future adopted kids. I think my story was If you give a duck a pineapple bun...or some other Asian bun
2. The Series of the Unfortunate Events
I remember marathon-ing this series in the 4th-5th grade. It's one of my favorite series. I love how Lemony Snicket interrupts when things get a little scary. His warnings got old tho... Count Olaf gave me some serious stalker vibes.
3. Dragon Slayer Academy
This series was just weird. I read almost every book *Feels shame*... The main character reminded me of Ron Weasley and there was an undercover girl. Girl power! 
4. Where the Sidewalk Ends
I loved a lot of the poems in this book. They were HILARIOUS. My favorite one was about the garden full of jewels and precious stones. The unicorn one was awesome too!
5-8. EVERY ROALD DAHL BOOK IN EXISTENCE
I remember reading & learning swear words from these books. They were so whimsical and fun. Roald Dahl is probably one of the many people responsible for my love of reading.
The epitome of a failed/horrible marriage
 
9. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
To this day, I still don't have a copy... :'(
10. Clementine
Even though I don't like tropical fruits
She's so weird and funny. I wonder how her parents even deal with her. She's absolutely ridiculous.

Next Reads

Gosh, I haven't done posts like this in a while! I remember why!
They're a bitch to edit 


I'll be reading this, courtesy of NetGalley. I've heard great things about this book. I have VERY high expectations. If I do like this book, I HAVE THE SECOND ONE TOO! FOR FREE!! Thanks NetGalley.





I have absolutely no idea what this book is about. Wonderful. I believed a couple of my friends read this and they liked it. I think I also recommended this to a friend. 


Again, my friends recommended this to me. A lot of them read this and really like it. Booktubers loved this. I have really high expectations, yet I feel I won't like this book because it's too mainstream. Mainstream books do not agree with me. 

I read the first book and didn't hate it. So, it's worth a try. Alex raves about this book. Looking forward to Kale Chaol...*smiles nervously*



I read parts of this book, but I felt too bad for Eleanor and couldn't continue. She has a crappy home life and gets bullied. At least try to be nice to the girl for fucks sake!

The Return Review

Thank you Alex for the copy and other book goodies. I am forever grateful.
NOTE: I won't be updating as much because I need to prep for regents (in middle school), I have exit projects, many essays to write, ELA HW that just won't quit, and I will be busy sobbing my eyes out watching Boy in the Striped Pajamas.




The Return  (Titan #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Read: Paperback, 335 pages
Publishing: Spencer Hill Press February 16, 2015
          It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they've given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.
          Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.
          But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.
          Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Trilogies

          I hate trilogies and they hate me. We have a great relationship. Most books that are trilogies are usually either a sandwich (1st book is good, 2nd is shit under my feet, and 3rd ties the series up well), a Titanic (It started out good, but it became a disaster in the end), or it was cow manure (no matter what you did, it still stank.)
          A sandwich for me was the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins. The first book got me pumped, the 2nd made me really angry, and the third even though it made me angry because someone got Mason'd was a good wrap up to the series. Team Good wins, yet again. It was very predictable.
          A Titanic would be Unearthly the series by Cynthia Hand. I really liked the first book. But, after another Mason-ing, I got sad. What made it worse was that her brother's name is Jeffrey. No bueno.... Jeffrey is a dick. In real life and in the book. I hope he doesn't see this... The middle was really weird and Clara's purpose wasn't exactly clear. It might be because I don't recall this book, or the events distracted it. Like midi-chlorians, mentioned once, but never again.
          Cow Manure... did you know you can use cow manure to create a fun, toy explosive with a firecracker? My parents did that as kids... The trilogy would be Firelight by Sophie Jordan. I thought the first book was pretty interesting, but the writing became shoddier. I was bored out of my mind, so I skimmed the last book. It would have been a DNF, but I went Black Friday shopping and needed something to keep me occupied. 

The Winner's Crime

(This review is going to lack some usual characteristics of my reviews.)




The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy #2)
by Marie Rutkoski
Read: Hardcover, 416 painful & boring pages later...
Publishing: Farrar, Starus, and Giroux on March 3, 2015



Sentinel Review



Sentinel (Covenant #5) by JLA I love you, but I'm angry with you!
Publishing: Spencer Hill Press in November 2, 2013
          It's a beautiful day for a war.
          As the mortal world slowly slips into chaos of the godly kind, Alexandria Andros must overcome a stunning defeat that has left her shaken and in doubt of their ability to end this war once and for all.
          And with all the obstacles between Alex and her happily-ever-after with the swoon-worthy Aiden St. Delphi, they must now trust a deadly foe as they travel deep into the Underworld to release one of the most dangerous gods of all time.
          In the stunning, action-packed climax to the bestselling Covenant series, Alex must face a terrible choice: the destruction of everything and everyone she holds dear… or the end of herself.

Book Discussion

Hi everybody!
          I need a little help. So, today I'll be going to B&N to get The Winner's Crime and The Return (maybe because I might not find it.) If anybody read The Return, should I buy it?
          Also, what books should I read next? I probably won't read it until next year because my TBR is INSANE! I mean, every reader's TBR is insane, but mine is getting overwhelming.


          This picture is the essence of hard-core readers out there. Only hard-core readers would understand. No regular mortal understands the pain of a growing TBR.

          GRRRR, I just looked at B&N to see if TR is in stock. IT'S NOT!!!! YOU LITTLE BITCH! I love B&N, it's my second home, but it NEVER has the books I want when I want it. 
          There's a Throne of Glass discussion in my group.


Liebster Award

Thank you Mariosa of http://mariosad.blogspot.com/ for nominating me. Instead of nominating certain people (I already nominated a lot of people for another award, I'll just nominate anyone/everyone that wants to do this.) You will be answering 10 questions of my choice. MWAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

I Was Asked:

1. What's your favorite show?
          I'm loving How To Get Away With Murder, Once Upon a Time, How I Met Your Mother (it's so sad that it ended), King of the Nerds, Project Runway, and Child Genius.
2. Why did you start your blog?
          I was in a pretty lonely slump. I was in a different class, no one really talks to me/I don't like the kids in my class, and no one really connected with me. My friend Daphne has a blog and inspired me. After this blog, I was able to connect with a lot of people all over the world. I became weirder and even more confident than I was before. With this blog, I allowed my freak-flag to go free in the real world. I had book talks with me friends and etc.
3. Are you a sweet or chocolate person?
          What? Are you trying to ask if I like candy or chocolate? If you are, CHOCOLATE ALL THE FRIGGIN' WAY!!!!! 
4. Favorite quote?
"Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly"     
-Morticia Addams
"Make-up can only make you pretty on the outside. It doesn't help if you're ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up."
-Audrey Hepburn
5. What is your dream job?
          I still don't know what I'm going to do in life. I want to be an actress sometimes, so I can entertain people, meet other famous people, go to fashion shows, wear awesome stuff, and be famous. But, my acting is okay.
          I would love to be a lawyer or psychologist, maybe even a forensic anthropologist. But, the years you have to study are a pain. It will also make a very big dent in any bank account.
          I would love to be a writer, publisher, business person, or some sort of entrepreneur.
          As you can see, I'm really weird and have ABSOLUTELY NO direction. 
6. Where do you see in five years time?
          Graduating High School, looking for a job/jobs, looking for love, friendships that last forever, the meaning of life, and a way to burn fat fast without doing anything (NO PILLS!)
7. What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
          Coffee, Chocolate, Green Tea, and Oreos Cookies n' Creme.
8. What country would you love to live in?
          PARIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
9. Celebrity crush?
          Female: Angelina Jolie, Candice Swanpoel, Cara Delevingne, Victoria Beckham, etc.
          Male: Nick Bateman XD (Can't think of anymore after a pic of Nick...)
10. What languages do you speak?
          I speak English, Chinese (Cantonese & Mandarin), and Spanish. I tried learning French, German, Portuguese, and Italian. I know a few words in those languages.
