I took a little time yesterday and found my book list so now my goodreads account is up to date. I’m almost positive there is one book missing but if I can’t remember it I can’t log it. I’d say lesson learned but it’s not like it’s the first time I’ve been through this.
I’ve read some since I last posted a review but I’m so bad about blogging when I’m in school and I didn’t do a hot job of keeping track of what I read so I have a big gap from early February to May. Oh well, such is life, I’ll try to catch up with my thoughts on what I’ve tracked here. [Read more →]
I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
PANDEMONIUM continues Lena’s gripping story. After escaping from Portland, Maine, Lena makes it to the Wilds and becomes part of an Invalid community, where she transforms herself into a warrior for the resistance. A future without Alex is unimaginable, but Lena pushes forward and fights, both for him and for a world in which love is no longer considered a disease. Swept up in a volatile mix of revolutionaries and counterinsurgents, Lena struggles to survive—and wonders if she may be falling in love again. Full of danger, forbidden romance, and exquisite writing, Lauren Oliver’s sequel to Delirium races forward at a breathtaking pace
Synopsis: Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -the deliria- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.
I decided to tackle the New Adult category for my third book of 2013. I started by investigating how the category was defined and looking at choices on a few Goodread’s lists. I finally settled on My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron.
Book number two in 2013 was Moon Called by Patricia Briggs, I listened to it while I worked on updating background files on my blog and websites. Overall, I enjoyed the story and I’m willing to give the rest of the series a shot.
The Goodreads challenge was truly the only challenge I planned on doing this year, then Sheila from Book Journey reminded me about her WHERE challenge and before I knew it I was back at 4 challenges for this year. Worse yet, despite my epic failure for last year’s challenges I’ve committed to reading at least 60 books this year. Yep, I’ve officially lost my mind.
The 2012 version of this challenge, from Sheila at Book Journey, was one of my favorites even though I did a horrible job at it. I only managed to cover 10 states and wrote maybe one review. My aim for 2013 is to do a whole lot better with it both coverage and review wise.
