Booksinneed’s questions:

bloodlinesIf you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what book would it be?

This was a really hard question to answer because I have so many favorite books. I would choose Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. I was going to choose City of Bones by Cassandra Clare but I didn’t want to repeat characters or reasons. Over the past three years I have always found the time to reread this book. It is the first book in the spin-off series of Vampire Academy.

I relate to Sydney Sage in so many ways. Adrian was also my second favorite character in Vampire Academy. This book can get a bad rep because of its cover but, unpopular opinion here, I love the covers. Richelle Mead’s writing style had matured since her previous YA series.

If you could meet one fictional character (dead or alive), who would it be?clockwork angel

Since Cassandra Clare is one of my favorite writers this might be an obvious choice. I would choose Will Herondale. And you thought I would choose Jace. Although I do love Jace without Will there would be no Jace.

Will Herondale is a dream. He is ever so loyal and trusting to those he loves. He has a passion for books that would get us lost in conversation for hours on end. And Without Will where would be our Jace Herondale.

beautiful-creatures-bookcoverWhat evil character would you want to be in any fictional book? 

I would want to be Ridley Duchannes from the Beautiful Creatures series. Ridley does become a better person later on, but when she is particularly evil she has the best comebacks. I just lover her as a character and it would be really cool to be her.

 

 

My questions are:

  1. If you could only take 3 books to college/university, what would they be?
  2. What is your go-to genre after a reading slump?
  3. What has been your favorite book this year?

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

clockwork angelI absolutely loved this book! I give it 5/5 stars because I love anything Cassandra Clare publishes. This is the first book in the Infernal Devices Trilogy by Cassandra Clare, a prequel to the Mortal Instruments. This is my second time reading it but it is my first time listening to it. I enjoyed Jennifer Ehle’s narration but I did not enjoy the way she portrayed Gabriel Lightwood. I found it quite annoying. In this book, we follow Tessa Gray during her journey of meeting the Shadowhunters. Here is the blurb from the back of the book:

When Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother in Victorian England, something terrifying is waiting for her in London’s Downworld. Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, who are members of a secret organization called the Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she has the power to transform into another person. The Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa’s power for his own. Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons. She soon finds herself fascinated by- and torn between-two best friends: James and Will. As Tessa is drawn deep into a plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, she realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the worlds . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all. 

I relate most to Tessa because of her love of reading. I do enjoy this love triangle because Jem, Will, and Tessa are my some of my favorites in the Shadowhunters universe. It is also interesting to read about Magnus’s past before he met Alec.

I love Will Herondale so much, even more than Jace. His overall character development is great. I also have a love for Jem, too. He is so sweet and kind.

I highly recommend this book especially is you like historical fiction! Right now I am listening to Clockwork Prince. I do recommend reading this book before you read City of Fallen Angels because events will be spoiled for you.

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

A warning to all of you non-spoiler people! This is the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series. If you do not want to be spoiled you might want to leave. Go read this book! 

cityoflostsoulsI rate this book 5/5 stars! This is one of my favorite books in the series. I even picked up on more reading for a second time. Cassie Clare has done it again. This book amazed me, had me laughing, and made me angry. I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed the narration. Molly Quinn did an amazing job! She kept me engaged throughout the whole book.

The Demon Lilith has been destroyed and Jace freed from captivity. But when the Shadowhunters arrive, they find only blood and broken glass: Jace, the boy Clary loves, and Sebastian, the brother Clary hates, have disappeared.
The Clave’s magic cannot locate either boy, but Jace can’t stay away fro Clary. When they meet again, Clary is horrified to discover Lilith’s magic has bound Jace together with Sebastian, and Jace has become a servant of evil.
The Clave is out to eradicate Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. Alec, Magnus, Simon, and Isabelle scheme and bargain to save Jace, but Clary is utterly alone, playing a dangerous game. If she loses- her life- and Jace’s soul- are forfeit. She’d do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?

So we are following Clary on her journey to save Jace from Sebastian. She has to pretend to be on Sebastian’s side. I enjoyed the dialogue between Clary and Sebastian. Especially when she calls him out by his full name. Of course we had some sassy Jace moments. My favorite quote from Jace is, “Missing one stunningly attractive teenage boy. Answers to ‘Jace’ or ‘Hot Stuff.'”  This is from when Jace and Sebastian do that late night visit to Clary. The whole traveling apartment was an interesting thing to read about. When Jace temporarily become himself again was my favorite scene in book. It was so beautifully written!

Magnus and Alec are having some relationship issues all because of Camille. Alec’s meetings with Camille were my least favorite scenes in the book. Magnus and Alec are one of favorite couples so I hate this. After the visit from Jace and Sebastian, Magnus lets Jocelyn and Clary stay at his place. Everyone ends up staying there. That leads to some of Magnus’s best moments.

Isabelle and Simon have some of the sweetest and awkward scenes. My favorite is when Simon ends up telling Izzy the whole plot of Star Wars as a bedtime story. When they finally connect, you know Izzy loves Simon.

Again, I highly suggest you read this book if you want to continue on with the series.

Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

Confessions of a Murder SuspectI give this book 5/5 stars because I devoured this book in less than 2 days. This was a reread for me but it was my first audiobook. In this novel, we follow the Angel family after the murder of their parents.

She can’t trust anyone. Maybe not even herself. Tandy Angel is a whip-smart teenager, a magnificently wealthy heiress who was possibly the last person to see her parents alive. Is she also a murderer? Harrison Angel is her artistic twin brother and a concert pianist but was always a disappointment to their parents. Is he also a murderer? Hugo Angel is their ten-year-old sibling, a little boy with uncanny strength . . . and their parents pushed him as hard as the rest of them. Is he also a murderer? Matthew Angel is their famous older brother, an all-American football star who has more than one very good reason to hate their parents. Is he also a murderer? 

The book is narrated by Tandy as we follow her trying to solve the death of her parents. She could be considered unreliable narrator, but you readers should just take her word for it. The Angels were a rich family that lived in a high end apartment building in New York City. Now the Angel children must come together after the death of their parents even if one of them is a murderer.

It is so fast paced and good that it could be read in one sitting. This is a great beach read!

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian I give this book 5/5 stars because I absolutely loved it! It was very hyped on BookTube and it lived up to the hype. Katy just moved from Florida with her mom to a small town in West Virginia. They end up moving next door to twins Daemon and Dee. Dee and Katy instantly become friends but Dee’s brother Daemon seems to not like Katy. Katy first thought Daemon was cute but once he opened his mouth Katy realized that he was completely arrogant. That is until something happens that brings Katy and Daemon together. I know that was a crappy summary but trust me this book is great.

I related to Katy because she reminded me of myself with her love of reading and all. The character development in this book was amazing. It was also beautifully written. Although I relate to Katy in so many ways Daemon has to be favorite character for right now. He actually reminds a lot of Damon from The Vampire Diaries but younger of course. I just wanted to say that if you have seen the show Roswell you will enjoy this book.

I know the cover is very Romance novel like but don’t judge it by its cover! I highly suggest this book and it’s one of my favorites this year.
