Dearest readers, life has been crazy lately. And I do mean seriously crazy. Before I give you my tidbits (isn’t that a fun word?) I’ll give you a very brief list of my most-recent woes.
In the past month, I’ve sprained my ankle, contracted a modern form of the plague, made jewelry nonstop for an anime convention, planned my best friend’s bacherlorette party and just when I thought it was over my dad had heart bypass surgery this week. (He’s doing great.)
I apologize for temporarily abandoning you, but I think things are slowing down now so I’ll work hard to continue being your YA lit resource.
Now for the tidbits:
1. Read Cassandra Clare’s City of Fallen Angels. The story didn’t really grab me until around the middle and in the meantime, I was dealing with Magnus’ absence (I LOVE Magnus) and Jace’s identity crisis/weird dreams/whining. Bring on the cocky Jace for the next one, Cassie! What did you think?
2. Read Kelley Armstrong’s The Gathering. Again, not as impressed by this one as I was by The Summoning, which was creepy, scary and wonderful. The Gathering had an interesting story, but it was pretty obvious what was going on for most of the book. The ending was a bit anticlimatic as well. Again, I want to know your thoughts…what did you think? Was it as good as the Darkest Powers series?
3. I’m in love with the recently-revealed cover for Silence, the third and final book in Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush Hush series. I’m a Patch fan, and while the second book gave me too much of Nora’s ridiculousness without enough of Patch’s more reasonable self, Crescendo ended with a bang and I’m dying to read Silence. How did Crescendo strike you?
