Mixed Bag of Bookness.

Should have a review today but i cant put in words how i feel about this book today: Hemlock Grove by Brian McGreevy So look for a review here in the next few days.


Let's talk about a free eBook i read a few months ago, it's free on amazon. It's Called The Rockstar's Daughter by Caitlyn Duffy. The book is about  a girl named Taylor who goes to boarding school  and spends the summer with her mother who isn't a very good mother. The summer before her junior year of school her mother dies and this starts the who story of how her dad comes into her life.
    I didn't think i would like this book but i read it in one sitting. It's got everything you want in a book, trouble, sex, romances and a step mother who could be her friend or worst. I think that is a smart well written book that teenagers could relate too. Read it if you want a quick easy read that is free. On a high note i don't read a lot of eBooks but i keep getting them to read but i don't. I like the feel of a read book in my hands.

                                                    Top Five:

My Top Five today is : Top Five Series i read this year. ( This is only books i have read this year, either the whole series or a book in the series.)

  1.  Divergent Trilogy  by  Veronica Roth ( Divergent and Insurgent are out )
  2. Hex Hall  Trilogy by Rachel Hawkins ( Hex Hall, Demonglass and Spell Bound)
  3. The Infernal Devices Trilogy by Cassandra Clare ( Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess)
  4. The Body Finder Tetralogy by Kimberly Derting (The Body Finder, Desires of the Dead, The Last Echo and Dead Silence)
  5. The Iron Frey Tetralogy by Julie Kagawa ( The Iron King, The Iron Daughter, The Iron Queen and The Iron Knight)
You should check out all the great series i have in the top five this week.

                                                      Flash Back:

Flash Back is basically were i tell you about classics or older books that are good or something is happening with them like a movie or anniversary.

  • The Great Gatsby By F. Scott Fitzgerald : Has a new movie coming out in the summer of 2013. It is staring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby. It also has Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher and Joel Edgerton. The Trailer is really good: Watch it Here.

                                                     Blog and BookTube:

I love to read and watch blogs about books. I found out that on youtube people make videos about books and other book relate things. I found that a lot of people read and love books just as much as i do. I think that everyone should check out this undiscovered part of youtube called booktube.

It's Review Day and i don't have a review because i am still reading the book that i want to review. Next week will have a review on Monday.

     So today's blog is going to be about the books i have gotten over the past few months. Like i said before i think, i don't really but new books but i do shop a used book stores and stores like that.

   First the books i brought or win in giveaways in the past few months.

I won to books from Goodreads. They are Bared to You by Sylvia Day which is a really good book for someone who is looking for something like Fifty Shades of Grey, But only in the love story. Then I won Night Sky by Jolene Perry, I haven't read it yet book it sound really good.I think it's about a boy who loved one girl and is falling in love with the other. If you want to know more about it check it out on Goodreads.

Now for the books that i brought. Most of them i got for 25cents a piece or 4 for a dollar.I have read some of them but not all of them. I am just going to list them for the most part. I only want to talk about one.

  • The World of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
  • The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
  • Deception Point by Dan Brown
  • Emma by Jane Austen 
  • Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  • Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

The Last book i got i want to talk about because it  changed my life it is an amazing book. I got The Last Lecture By Randy Pausch. It's a book written by a dieing man for his kids, but the book is also his last lecture because it was a professor. It's is a powerful book about how it follow you dreams, not just your adult dreams but the ones you made as a child because they are the best dreams to follow. Everyone should read this book.
