Dear non-reader, here is what you are missing.

(Tuesday Talks, a Goodreads group topic)

Let me start off by saying I completely understand why some people don’t read. A lot of people see books as something that bore them half to death, and that is a-okay with me! However, I still think there are a lot of things these non-readers are missing out on. So, I am going to talk about my favorite parts of reading that everyone needs a little bit of in their lives!

Crimson Bound: Rosamund Hodge

I have been reading, or more accurately not reading, this book for the past week. I have only made it through 170 pages. 170! I just cannot find the motivation to read this book anymore, and it is killing me. This is officially a DNF (did not finish) until I find the enthusiasm hidden deep within me to finish the other 2/3s of the book.

Half Bad: Sally Green

“I had sort of guessed that Celia had an issue with me, or rather with me being the son of you-know-who.”

You-Know-Who? Is it just me or did this book suddenly turn into Harry Potter? Main character is half white witch half black witch, Harry shares a connection with Lord Voldemort……Anyone else?

ANYWAYS here is how I felt about the rest of the book…

Alphabet Book Tag!

I was scrolling through Youtube when I saw a video on this and thought…. well, this is something I have to do! And then it hit me, have I even read a book starting with Z or X?!?!

Well here we go! A list of books I have read for (almost) every letter of the alphabet… I am missing 4 letters of the alphabet, oh the shame.

What is the Longest Series You Have Read?

What is the longest series you have ever read is the May 24th topic for Tuesday Talks, which is a group in goodreads (everyone should go join). I’ve been looking at these discussions for a while, but now finally I decided I might as well write about one! Admittedly, sometimes I dislike series and wish books would stick to the singular side of things, but sometimes they are way worth it!

The longest series I have ever read would have to be Sweet Valley High. Anyone else?

These Broken Stars: Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

Image result for These Broken Stars

Let me start by saying the colors on this cover got me. I gave it one look and knew I needed to at least try to read it. These Broken Stars is a Sci-Fi novel about a rich girl, Lilac (with surprising technological knowledge), and a poor, war-hero boy, Tarver. They are traveling on a spaceship holding 50,000 people (holy!) until it crashes and they are the only ones to survive and land on a new planet.

Considering I read this book on the same day I finished The Court of Fives, I liked it a lot more.

Court of Fives: Kate Elliot

Image result for Court of Fives

Court of Fives follows the story of a girl named Jessamy, who is a “mule”. Basically her father is (somewhat) high born and her mother is of the peasant class. The Court of Fives is a competition consisting of a series of obstacles named Rivers, Pillars, Trees, Traps, and at the center, Rings. Jessamy wants to run the Fives while keeping her family together and developing a connection with royalty who goes by the name of Kalliarkos.

Overall this book is widely mediocre.
