Currently reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.

Hey Im reading that too... Im not even halfway but the story stirs my imagination. I can even see the characters vividly in my head (my hair starts to stand now, yikes). Im quite enjoying the flow of the story so I don't want to finish it in one seating. I just started last night, hopefully i'll be done this friday.

Wrath to Butch: That's you. You shall be called the Black Dagger warrior Dhestroyer....
Rhage: But you'll always be Butch to us, as well as hard-ass. Smart-ass. Royal pain in the ass... I think as long as there's an ASS in there, it'll be accurate.

I agree ... this book is really different and the author has introduced us to such a creative world. The heroine is sweet and tough at the same time.

Yes, she did indeed. I haven't read about the topic she explored in this story in any book I've read so far. So this is all new to me and refreshing. I read some good reviews about this, thus, making me pick it up and try reading. And I like every characters Laini Taylor created, I hope the ending won't put me down.

 I've read Hush Money by Susan Bischoff and now I'm reading sequel of it - Heroes 'Til Curfew - both books are pretty exciting - more for the fans of action, because the romance line is not main.
Before it I've read Open Minds and Closed Hearts by Susan Kaye Quinn and was completely smitten with the series - definitely a must-read!

Just finished with the book, cant wait for the sequel coming out in Nov 2012 ... brace yourself for the ending. It was a very enjoyable read and I am starting with another book from the Wereworld series titled Rise of the wolf by Curtis Jobling.

I'm done too. Finished it last night because I just can't put the book down. I thought it was a stand alone book. Although I foreseen what could have gone wrong, the ending was still good for me. I was glad there would be a sequel, the problem is just waiting... (argh) that's what I hate about series, they created to torture you!  :D

I will start now on Delirium. :)

Reading is an obsession, an occupation, a passion, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby.

Will read The 4rd part of Song of Ice and Fire. --- The Feast of Crows by George R R Martin....

I remember I dragged my brain to finish that book, because it lacked my favorite viewpoints (Jon Snow's and Tyrion's) but I'm still a fan! :D

This month was kind of a slow moth for me - I did not read much or at least not as much as I normally read.

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare - was kind of a must-read for me because I love the TMI series, though I am more of a fan of the first three books and would have been completly happy had the story just ended there. With the last book (City of Fallen Angels) and this here, I just get the feeling that Miss Clare is just dragging things on to make more money but not because there really is so much more for the story to be told. I am also kinda sick of Clary AND Jace right now, though I am happy that in the last books there was more focus on the other characters, such as Alec, who is my personal favorite. That said, the book was good and I personally liked it a lot more than City of Fallen Angels but .. I just want to read Clockwork Princess right now, as 'The Infernal Devices' is a much better story than TMI IMHO .. so yeah. I would have liked it better to have Clockwork Princess in my hands now and to wait for City of Lost souls than this way around, lol. Yeah .. sorry for rambling ;)

In Honor ny Jessi Kirby - I was honestly, and positively, surprised by this book. I really didn't know what exactly I expected when I started reading this book .. probably more romance than it actually had and more fun and you know just typical YA book .. but this book was just so much more for me. It was really touching from time to time and though I am normally someone who never says no to romance I really liked that the romance was more of a sub-part of the story here. So yeah, really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more works by Miss Kirby.

Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles - This was also kind of a must read for me, because I have read the other two books in the series and wanted to read the last one too so yeah .. this month I finally did. I don't have much too say about this book .. I liked it, and definitely better than the second book in the series which I kinda did not enjoy very mucht (but I LOVED the first book) .. so yeah. It was a short, light read but nothing more.


7 Clues to Winning You by Kristin Walker - Well, I already knew that I would love this book before I read it, because I really, really loved the authors other book 'A Match Made in Highschool' and she really did not disappoint me with this book. It was funny, it was romantic, it was just a really good read for me. Really can't wait for more books by Kristin Walker .. :)

Well, I think that was it .. like I said, I really did not read much this month. Currently I am reading Insurgent and Fifty Shades of Grey - though I might not finish the latter. I just wanted to see/read what all the hype was about with this book but it's just .. horrible, lol. Sorry to all fans of the book, but I just don't like it .. I don't like the characters or the writing style or the story. No .. just .. no.

I'm going to start the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series by Philippa Ballantine. I've been on a bit of a steampunk binge and it sounds interesting.

For vague reasons, I've been putting off reading Fifty Shades. I do think Christian Grey is hot (especially now that there's a rumor that Ian Somerhaulder might play as Christian). It's just that I can't seem to find the chemistry between him and Anna. Oh well, that's just me. In spite of this, I will try to finish the book since I have all three. I just hope it won't take me 3 years to read all of them.  :D

I am currently reading A Perfect Scoundrel by Heather Cullman.

Working my way through the Mortal Instruments series, started at the end of April, almost done with the 3rd one.

I Love the Mortal Instruments!! I was going to read it again but my little sister pulled some of the pages out of the third book,  >:( :'( , So now I have to wait til I get a new copy.

At the moment I am reading "The Fault In Our Stars - By John Green"
