Things I Have Been Thinking About

Well I decided to write to you about what I have been thinking about that is book related. Such as even though I do not like ebook formats I would much rather buy textbooks that way rather than regular format. I mean really why do I have to buy hundreds dollars worth of books that I only use a semester. Last semester I took this class where we did not even use the book and it cost me hundred and fifty dollars. I feel like I wasted my money on that book last semester. Another thing that I have been thinking is what is up with this whole Fifty Shades of Grey popularity. I mean I am not judging anybody who has read that book, but I personally feel like there is more to literature than just that book. Well thanks for reading my rant and I hope you enjoyed it.

Book Review

Hey Guys! A new book review for you. This month I decided to read contemporary because my last view books have been intense. Hope You Enjoy!

Pages: 268
Synopsis: Lani and Erin are lfelong best friends-and total opposites. Lani's down-to-earth Taurus; Erins's a fiery Leo. Lani likes to do her own thing; Erin prefers an entourage. They's always had wildly different tastes, from pizza toppings to guys. That is, until Erin starts dating Jason. From the minute Lani meets Jason, she can't deny the amazing connection she feels with him. It's like they've known each other their whole lives. She's not sure if he feels it, too-but even if he does, he's off limits. Lani's determined to ignore her feelings for Jason, no matter how powerful they are, rather than hurt her best friend. Then Erin goes away for the summer-and Jason seems to appear everywhere Lani turns. How long can she keep running from the guy who might be the love of her life?
How I rate the book: 4 out of 5
My thoughts: Overall I really enjoyed this book. This was my first book I read from this author and I was not disappointed. There are some parts that the character development was not the best that is why it got four out five stars.

How I rate it: 5 out of 5 stars
My thoughts: This book left me on the edge of my seat until the last very last page. I had so many good twist and turns in the book, but I can't give away anything or else it would spoil the book. The ending was a good OMG moment.  I would definitely recommend this to any one who like Science Fiction books.

Talk about blog changes

Hey Guys! Most of you have probably notice that I change the layout out of my blog a little bit. That is because I am preparing for a new book challenge for my fall semester at school. Which means a new book challenge for the blog. The fall semester I am going to try to read some classics. So If any of you have suggestions please let me know. I think I am going to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen first. Hope you have a great day!

New Book Review

Title: City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1)
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Margret K. McElderry Books
Date of Publication: March 24, 2007
Pages: 496
Synopsis: When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder-much less a murder committed by tree teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into tin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing-not even a smear of blood-to sow that a boy has died. Or was he a boy? This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. 
How I rate it: 4 out of 5 stars
My thoughts: It was well written and good character development. I am excited to read the next book in the series. The reason why I gave it four out five stars because some scenes in the book I felt were to drawn out. I hope that has gotten better as the series goes on.
