Update on my “bookstore” experience awhile back

Okay, so I ranted and raved about this bookstore for a bit and then I got angry enough to actually write them a letter and explain certain things that really ticked me off and in the same letter I also praised what I actually liked about the place, which in particular was the people.  Amazing group of very helpful people.  Well, never before have I been …

Shiver, Maggie Stiefvater

Haven’t posted about my latest reads in awhile.  I’ve read several books in the past 2-3 weeks, but this one in particular is standing out.  It was amazing!  I LOVED it!!  It’s the first in a new trilogy I believe and I cannot wait for the others to come.
I have never read Maggie Stiefvater before and WOW she has an amazing style of writing.  Her …

Wow! Two posts in one day! That’s amazing. I’ll probably not have one for 6 months now! Anyway… I have a bit of a rant here. OMG!!! My local bookstore is bugging the hell out of me! Every single time I go there I can never get what I’m looking for!!! Either they have the 2nd and 3rd books in a series there and not …

The relationship of a book

Does anyone else experience the depression when a book or a series comes to and end? I know a lot of people beside myself did with the Twilight series when it was over, but what about other books? Do you feel almost let down at the end of a book? I do. I know it’s stupid but I seriously feel dumped. Unless I have another …

She did not disappoint with her sequel to Evernight! I loved it. I read it in 2 days. If it were a weekend and I didn’t have to work for 10 hours a day I would have had it done in 1 day like Evernight. Did I say I LOVED IT?
Lucas and Bianca had some bumpy roads and a lot of learning to do about …

Evernight, Claudia Gray

I happened upon this series quite by accident while hunting down another series. It seemed to be right up my alley with vampires etc so I bought it. I had it on my bookshelf for a bit and just dove into it on the weekend. I finished it in one day!! It’s absolutely fantastic! I loved it! Claudia Gray (aka Amy Vincent) truly knows how …

Even better than the first book Wake. I just love Lisa’s writing style. It’s such a good series and I can’t wait for the 3rd book. It’ll be called Gone and it’s coming out I believe either later this year or early 2010. Can’t wait!
Wake started us out being introduced to Janie. A young teenage girl dealing with a crappy alcoholic mother who doesn’t even …

WOW!! I’m in love with a new character(s). AGAIN! Carrie Jones to my knowledge is brand spanky new and this is her debut novel. I read this book in just a couple of days and I adored it. (correction August 26th… Carrie is not brand spanky new… she has other books… visit her website. She’s awesome!)
It’s a young adult novel about a young girl who …

Reading in general

Wow! I haven’t posted in a long time but it’s not like I haven’t been reading! Quite the contrary. I’ve been reading non-stop for the past little while and I can’t seem to get enough of the mystical magical underworld genre. From pixies to vampires. Seriously! I never strayed from James Patterson, Stephen King and Lisa Gardner etc. until the past couple of years and …
