Wishlist Wednesday # 134

Wishlist Wednesday is where you show a book that has been on your wishlist/TBR list for a while, the meme is hosted by Pen to Paper.

 Summary from Goodreads:

All’s Well That Ends Well finds Helena rewarded for her ministries to the sick with the choice of any husband she wishes. Her choice, Bertram, is unwilling to have her as his wife and sets her a number of seemingly impossible tasks to complete before he will relent.

My Notes:

I want to jump back into reading all of the Shakespeare plays. I read about 7 last year and when I'm out of my reading slump I want to read the rest. 

Waiting on Wednesday # 135

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you pick a book that is coming out soon that you want to read.

 Summary from Goodreads

It started for pranks, fun, and forever memories.
A secret society – for the four of us. 
The rules: Never lie. Never tell. Love each other.
We made the pledge and danced under the blood moon on the meteorite in the orchard. In the spot we found the dead girl five years earlier. And discovered the ancient drawings way before that. 
Nothing could break the four of us apart – I thought.
But then, others wanted in. Our seaside town had secrets. History.
We wanted revenge.
We broke the rules. We lied. We told. We loved each other too much, not enough, and in ways we weren’t supposed to. 
Our invention ratcheted out of control.
What started as a secret society, ended as justice. Revenge. Death. Rebellion.

My Notes:

I cannot wait to get my hands on this one! I really enjoyed her two other young adult mysteries because of the writing style.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #149


Counting down the days until I graduate! :) However, I'm in a horrible reading slump that is stress related. I still have one more book to read for class and I don't even want to read it. And new video game (Mass Effect) I just got last week is not helping the reading slump.

Friday Meme: Books/Movies/Games Coming Out This Month That I Want To Read/See/Play # 57

Note: Sorry for the lack of reviews/posts. I'm currently not reading anything but class novels/articles. I'm in the last three weeks of my college career. And I'm pretty sure Tolkien's series put me in a reading slump.

Despite my horrible reading slump I did manage to write a 16 page paper on The Lord of the Rings using all of the films/books XD

 Here are some books/movies/video games I want to read and watch but have no time to do either.

Books: Week of 4/24

Review: A List of Cages by Robin Roe

 Summary from Goodreads:

When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he's got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn't easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can't complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends. Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian--the foster brother he hasn't seen in five years.

Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He's still kind hearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what's really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #148


I was finally able to read for pleasure this week, yay! :) I'm currently in the last 5 weeks of my college education, the last 4 papers, the last exams, and I'm heavily stressed which means late night reading until the wee-hours, so expect a lot of books soon.

Review: The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien

 Summary from Goodreads:

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in THE HOBBIT. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

Review: Rebel of the Sands (Rebel of the Sands #1) by Alwyn Hamilton

 Summary from Goodreads:

She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there's nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can't wait to escape from.

Destined to wind up "wed or dead," Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she'd gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan's army, with a fugitive who's wanted for treason. And she'd never have predicted she'd fall in love with him... or that he'd help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #147


I had a hectic week of exams and academic conventions last week. I'm behind in everything, most of all my blog, but I did get some reading done during my travels. :) The reading I completed in the last two weeks are all for my college courses. I completely binge read the last two books in The Lord of the Rings series because I have a 12 page paper about it due at the end of it month. XD

I'm planning a trip to the library when I'm not dead-tired from traveling but for now I will be trying to finish some of my non-class related personal reading.
