A Book The Reading Girl Surprisingly Likes

I’m currently reading the last book from the MATCHED series by Ally Condie. The covers are gorgeous and I like the original idea of these books.

The first book: I LOVED 4 out of 5 stars

The second book: I HATED 2 out of 5 stars :Boring as hell (took me 2 MONTHS!!! to read it) the ending was the only GREAT thing about it.

Third book: I surprisingly love it. Its great. I like all the characters and the writing. I just started reading it and I can’t put it down. So far its 3 stars out 5 for me…but I think it will go up.

 

 

  

I do recommend this series. It’s really cool. Even though the second book was boring, it needs to be read to understand everything.  Read the reviews, listen to ME…hehe… and you will like this whole series.

That’s all. I just wanted to state that I am surprisingly enjoying this last book of the MATCHED series. I thought it would be a big disappointment like the second book. But, I took the risk and I don’t regret it yet.

Can’t wait for the review 🙂

Discussion: What The Reading Girl is Currently Reading (Good Books)

Picture 007

I am currently reading three wonderful books. Below I will let you know what they each are about and my opinion.

1. The Lord of The Rings (50th anniversary edition) by J.R.R. Tolkien: Frodo Baggins knew the Ringwraiths were searching for him – and the Ring of Power he bore that would enable Sauron to destroy all that was good in Middle-earth. Now it was up to Frodo and his faithful servant Sam to carry the Ring to where it could be detroyed – in the very center of Sauron’s dark kingdom. (Summary for The Fellowship of the Ring)

My thoughts:  I have the 50th anniversary edition which is all the three books inside: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King.  Its 1,178 pages and I am still in the first book. But I love it. It’s so full of details and emotions. Its like if Hobbits and Elves actually did exist. LOVE=This book. More will come once I review this book. P.S. I can tell that Peter Jackson tried as hard as possible to make the movie accurately. And I LOVE the movies :).

2. Quien es el anticristo?(Who is the Antichrist?) by Mark Hitchcock: With the growing interest in the Antichrist these days, curiosity runs high for both Christians and unbelievers–with good reason. In books, movies, and even everyday conversation, so many ideas about who he is, what he will do, and the timing of his arrival abound that it’s difficult to separate biblical fact from human speculation.

The Reporter and The Girl (Minus The Superman) by S.C. Rhyne/ Book Blurb

If you are a follower of mine and you do not like reading books or anything that has to do with books then don’t read on(which I do not get because my blog is all about books and bookish things;) )…it might bore you even though you might miss on a great book :).

I first created my blog with a purpose…and that was to share with all my followers and friends posts about books that I have read and my own books reviews. Recently I have been a bit behind on reading and reviewing. I haven’t been able to finish reading books given to me by authors or reviewed any at all since my days are REALLY busy, but I am sure they understand(since I have let them know).

Today I decided to have some time to let you all know about one particular book that I am actually enjoying very much. As you can see it is titled: The Reporter and The Girl (Minus the Superman). It is by S.C. Rhyne, an awesome author and blogger. Her blog is VERY popular here in WordPress and I am sure some of you have heard about it. Her book is a huge hit and it’s getting more popular as time passes by. It was recently made into a paperback as it was originally a story blog. I contacted her because I was interested in reading her book after she posted a post asking if anyone was interested in reviewing her book. She replied back and provided me the ecopy along with the links of the  positive reviews readers have wrote(there hasn’t been a negative review yet). The reviews looked good and I knew I was going to like it… let me say something: IT’S REALLY GOOD. I am starting to love it. Since I want you guys to read it too and buy it ;), I decided to post the Book Cover and a little Book Blurb. If it’s up to your likes and interest then go follow her on her blog and read her book!

*I decided to do this post on my own will. The author didn’t ask me…nobody did.

It is not a comic book 🙂

 Book Blurb:

Welcome to the rabbit hole

I am the last person in New York City who would fall head over heels in love.

Independent.  Self-possessed. Why would I want to f**k that up?

My online dating profile at bd-fet.com simply reads: “Just looking.”

So why am I obsessing about Jon Sudbury?

Jon, the reporter, is vanilla as a milkshake and has probably never tasted rice and beans on the same plate before we met.

At least that’s what I thought.

Why can’t people remain simple and predictable?

All I want is control, not to be sent hurtling at maximum speed into the unknown.

Nothing about our story makes sense.

The thing is, I can handle desire, lust, passion, even betrayal…

But love is another world altogether.

And this is not a love story.

Cover and Excerpt reveal. Seeking Philbert Woodbead(Fairweather Sisters, #2) by Anya Wylde

 

 The synopsis:

  The Fairweather Sisters Series: Book 2

Miss Celine Fairweather’s life was bobbing along like a boat on a tranquil stream when all of a sudden a summons from her beloved sister Penelope Radclyff, the Duchess of Blackthorne, changed it all.

Celine hurtles off to the London to help the duchess run the Blackthorne Mansion and to discover the whereabouts of her lost love Philbert Woodbead.

Celine manages to keep things deathly dull and under control for a whole week until she enlists the help of the handsome Lord Elmer—a mischievous rogue, an ex-pirate, and an incorrigible flirt who is wanted dead by all of England’s husbands with attractive wives.

They scurry from one giddy escapade to another seeking Philbert in musty inns and dusty streets, and through it all Celine tries to keep her bonnet straight, her gloves spotless and her heart in tune with her head.

Life has suddenly turned exciting, and love has well and truly bitten her rosy buttocks. Now the only question is … who has done the biting?

Excerpt: 

In the latter part of March of the year seventeen hundred and something, a large schooner rested on calm blue waters off the coast of England.

It was mid-afternoon, the water was unruffled and crystal clear, while the sky above had sent its grey clouds to London.

The sun beamed down on the deck where gentlemen with missing toes, feet, teeth or hands lay draped around the schooner attempting to snooze away the day.

Now, this schooner was no ordinary schooner (as you might have guessed from the hint above referring to missing limbs and such) but a piratical schooner, and the gentlemen were not really gentlemen but looters, marauders and plunderers.

Yes, sir, they were murderous, unscrupulous adventurers and stinking water rats.

They were all pirates. Each one of them were pirates. The whole blasted lot of them were pirates. In fact, they couldn’t be more piratical if they tried. And they tried. Oh, how they tried to be more devilish than the devil himself.

And one of them came close to being the devilishest … if that is a word. If it is not, then it should be because it perfectly described the tall, muscular, grey eyed man with his long silver streaked black hair and cruel mouth. This man was so wicked that the mere reference to him caused the afternoon light to dim, the wind to blow more urgently, the men to wake mid snooze, the tea to jump out of the cup … Where were we?

Ah, yes, the captain of the ship, the head pirate, the Black bloody  Rover, whose name was enough to frighten the children of the world into behaving, was the owner of this piratical schooner called The Desperate Lark and the leader of these dim muscled men.

He stormed now onto the middle of the deck sending the seagulls screaming into the air. His appearance caused the men to scatter while his frown had them cowering in the bilge. While they cowered, the Black Rover grabbed the cuff of a one legged man, his most trusted aide, and in low, clipped cultured tones asked, “Who stole it, Tim?

“George Rodrick Irvin, the future Earl of Devon currently holding the courtesy title of Viscount Elmer,” squeaked Tim. “The one we call Lord Wicked.”

“Kill him.” The Black Rover was a man of few words.

Tim bowed in response.

“And kidnap the cooks,” the Black Rover continued.

Tim dared to frown, “Cooks?”

The Black Rover glowered. “And the chefs. I want every single person who can cook to be kidnapped and tortured until we get it back.”

“Torture?” Tim asked uncomfortably. “Can’t we simply kill them and be done with it? I don’t like torturing. It is a messy job, and I don’t like it when they cry and they all cry.”

The Black Rover smiled harshly. He leaned closer to Tim and whispered in his half bitten ear two words, “Pigeon feathers.”

“Arr.” Tim’s sparsely lashed eyes widened in admiration. He shook his head at his captain’s intelligence. The most learned man, Tim thought proudly, was right here.

Pigeon feathers … The Black Rover was a blooming genius.
