    Week 18. What’s on my Reading List?

    It’s Monday again! Time to set my reading priorities. This is a weekly meme featured here—on my blog, where I present you the books I’m planning to read for the entire week. I decided to do this in order to declutter my ever piling TBR. I have a good feeling with this week’s set (and have lots of free time for reading! Yay!). Starting off with Unraveling, ever since I saw this book and read the synopsis I’ve been dying—

    Grave Mercy

    Author: R.L. LaFevers Series: (His Fair Assassin #1) Published: April 3rd 2012 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Rating: I knew there’s something strange with this book. Strange because I’m not a huge fan of historical fiction (but that’s starting to change) but I wanted to read it. And that’s weird for me. Plus, the idea of an assassin and not just ordinary assassin, a female—a nun! I know I have to pick this one up. Grave Mercy was so different from—

    The Glimpse

    Author: Claire Merle Expected publication:  June 7th 2012 by Faber & Faber (UK) Rating: I received an eARC from Faber & Faber (UK) via Netgalley. Thank you. My interest in this book fluctuated the whole time. From bored, disbelieved to fascinated then lost. But all things considered I think The Glimpse was still a decent read. It didn’t excite me like other dystopian books I have read before but honestly, there were times that it was really engaging but I’m—

    Torn

    Author: Stephanie Guerra Expected publication: May 15th 2012 by Marshall Cavendish Rating: I received an eARC from Marshall Cavendish via Netgalley. Thank you. Torn is a bit different from what I expected. But it was cool that it wasn’t what I initially anticipated. For starters, for a short novel (my copy has 236 pages) it dealt with a lot of issues, and most of it, I must say were subtly executed. I’m not sure if I was impressed that it tried—

    The Piper’s Son

    Author: Melina Marchetta Published: March 1st 2010 by Penguin Australia/Viking Rating: This is one of those instances when I’m at a loss for words. That I don’t know what to say. That I’m wary if I’m able to justify the book’s worth. That I’m scared that what I’m about to say would not be enough. But then I realized it doesn’t matter. I liked this book. Really liked this book. And that’s what really counts. I haven’t read anything from—

    Week 17. What’s on my Reading List?

    It’s Monday again! Time to set my reading priorities. This is a weekly meme featured here—on my blog, where I present you the books I’m planning to read for the entire week. I decided to do this in order to declutter my ever piling TBR. I dropped Once Every Never. I really could not force my self to read it further. And I’m almost done with the emotional wrenching novel of Ms. Marchetta, The Piper’s Son. I decided to read—

    Dark Kiss

    Author: Michelle Rowen Series: (Nightwatcher #1) Expected publication: May 22nd 2012 by Harlequin Teen Rating: I received an eARC from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley. Thank you. I enjoyed Michelle Rowen’s Demon Princess series so when I saw that she has a new YA series, I automatically added it on my to-read pile. I’m glad it was available on netgalley and particularly happy to read the book this early. So much thanks goes to them and of course Harlequin Teen. <3 It’s—

    New Layout. Again.

    I didn’t like the previous theme so I decided to change it again. And hopefully this will last like the other one. This is more of my design, I love monochromatic feel of it. And here I thought I dislike pink. It is once again it’s pink. That’s it. I have to finish these books. Why did I request a lot?! Netgalley and Galley grab you are a tease!

    Being Friends with Boys

    Author: Terra Elan McVoy Expected publication: May 1st 2012 by Simon Pulse Rating: I received an eARC from Simon & Schuster via their Galley Grab program. Thank you. I was already planning to read this one even before I found out it was up for grabs on galley grab (and I snatched two more, which is nice. Despite the lack of the monthly newsletter, I’m glad that Simon and Schuster didn’t completely discontinue the service. But it’ll be great if the—

    Taken at Dusk

    Author: C.C. Hunter Series: (Shadow Falls #3) Published: April 10th 2012 by St. Martin’s Press Rating: This book is one massive labyrinth. There are a lot of passages I need to get through—dark ones before I reached the goal. It was exhausting. There are fun times though. But I felt drained. When I gotten to my desired destination, I don’t feel fulfilled.  It wasn’t a rewarding moment. You have no have any idea how much I wanted to know what—

    Week 16. What’s on my Reading List?

    It’s Monday again! Tuesday, it is now Tuesday. Time to set my reading priorities. This is a weekly meme featured here—on my blog, where I present you the books I’m planning to read for the entire week. I decided to do this in order to declutter my ever piling TBR. Maybe I should post this every Tuesday since I often post this meme on Tuesdays. Like for this instant. So…last week wasn’t a fruitful week, embarrassing to say. I only—

    Eternal Starling

    Author: Angela Corbett Series: (Emblem of Eternity #1) Published: December 6th 2011 by Pendrell Publishing Rating: Love triangles and I are best friends. But not this particular love triangle. And I don’t think we’re going to be friends. You know why I loved the love triangle in Unearthly, because both guys are created equally but differently. You can see why Clara was torn between them. But more than that, both guys—Tucker and Christian have personalities. Tucker must have liked Clara—

    When You Were Mine

    Author: Rebecca Serle Expected publication: May 1st 2012 by Simon Pulse Rating: I received an eARC from Simon & Schuster via their Galley Grab program. Thank you. I have yet to read Romeo and Juliet. I know, I know, it’s inexcusable that I still haven’t read the book yet.  But I saw other—several adaptations, maybe that count for something. I remember every time our English teacher asks us to choose a classic book; I always end up picking anything from Mark—

Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime-fighter in the Twin Cities, so it’s hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until—
