Finally done with my first semester of library school and while it was super interesting it was also super time consuming. However, I did manage to read a couple books…in three months! It was quite a change from my typical two books a week consumption.
However, The House of Hades by Riordan simply could not wait. It was epic and I rewarded myself with a couple chapters a night (which may have turned into read until 4 in the morning, but who cares…it is soo good!)
I also read Bone Season by Samantha Shannon and while it wasn’t as spectacular as I thought it would be (bit of a slow start), it still got me hooked on the storyline.
And there was Wonder R.J Palacio. Now if there was one book I could force all kids in school to read; it would be this one. It makes everyone, not just kids, stop and think about how they are treating people and why. Is it because they look different than you? Speak different? Dress different? Fantastic book…Go read it!
I also recently finished Allegiant by Roth…and I was disappointed. It may have had to do with my finals state of mind, but…it wasn’t my kind of series ending. Kudos to Roth though for writing what she wants no matter what others will think…I do admire her and I know many people are probably very happy with this final book.
Now, I’ve been on break (school and work!!!) for a couple days and I finished a cute sequel How Mrs. Clause Saved Christmas by Jeff Guinn and just started the Clockwork series by Cassandra Clare. I’m hoping to get enough books read and reviews written ahead of time to last me through next semester so I can sit back and enjoy all of your lovely blogs while cramming library stuff in my brain…. 🙂
Got any reading suggestions? I have until January 21st until school starts!!
