"Blog Break"

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I feel like I haven't been giving it my best in blogging and I don't want to continue to post crappy reviews because of lack of time. I originally planned on posting all the reviews I've written this week, but I don't have the time right now and I'd rather wait it off until May. Starting off a new month with a better plan sounds way better than ending a month by trying to cram everything in. I've been reading a lot about how some bloggers just take a break when blogging becomes a "job" or "chore" and I don't like that feeling. I know there isn't a lot of days left in April but I haven't been posting much of anything lately and just wanted to post a heads up. 

Coming up in May:
-Review of Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr
-Review of Awakened by PC + Kristin Cast
-Review of The Magnolia League by Crouch
-Review of Girl Wonder by Alexa Martin
-Review of Mercy by Rebecca Lim
And More Stuff....

I felt like it was becoming a chore to blog instead of doing it as a hobby. 
Do you ever feel like that? What did you do to make it fun again?

Cover Crazy (7) - Unearthly Cover(s)

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Cover Crazy is hosted by Tawni from The Book Worms
It's a chance to share about what Book Cover caught our attention.

This week I found a funny post by Cynthia Hand, the author of Unearthly, about the many covers of Unearthly. (Click here to see the original post) I decided that my cover crazy will play off of that since I loved the covers!

Here are the many covers of Unearthly:


-What I love about these covers are that they each portray Clara differently.
-The hair-color is definitely different which is neat.
-The cover that I can't stop looking at is the UK cover in the middle. It's so white/silvery and angel-like.
-My favorite cover because of the dress is the UK cover on the right with the red dress. To me it resembles the fire in the woods.
-But the cover that most resembles the Clara in my mind is the US cover on the left.

There is another Unearthly cover that isn't my favorite but I thought I'd share it:

Portugal Cover
It's definitely an interesting cover that's a bit racy but still neat to see how many ways people portray Clara. (Click here to read Cynthia's reaction to the cover)


What do you think of these covers? If you also participated in this meme,

TGIF (1)

Thursday, April 14, 2011

TGIF is a meme hosted by Ginger @ GReads! that allows us to 
re-cap our week and answer a fun weekly question.

This Friday's Question: Fictional Places
If you could visit any fictional setting in a story, where would you go?

I'd go to Summerland, from Alyson Noel's series, The Immortals. I just started this series and I'm just starting Shadowland, but it sounds amazing from what I've heard about Summerland in Blue Moon. A place where you can manifest anything you want. Like your own person world.

Cassandra Clare and Holly Black Tour: Portland, OR


Last night at Barnes & Noble in Portland,OR, I attended my first author book signing ever! What made my first event even more special was that it was a Cassandra Clare and Holly Black signing. Since this was my first I wasn't sure what to expect and when I should arrive so I ended up showing up a bit late. I know that's very amateur of me. What made it worse was that my dad and I were lost and was wondering around trying to find the Barnes & Noble for a good few minutes.

I missed the reading and Q&A, but I did make it for the signing! Something good that came out of that was I had a bit more time to talk to Holly and Cassandra since there weren't as many people afterwards. (I'm talking 10, I got home around 11 pm). I found that Holly and Cassandra are such sweet and funny people. I had a great time over all and was super excited when I met them.

Since I was somewhat in the last bunch of people, Holly was kind enough to let me get a picture with her and got a signed copy of Red Glove as well as some other cool stuff.


I didn't know that I was suppose to purchase City of Fallen Angels there if I wanted it signed, so I purchased a copy of City of Bones and got that signed. When Cassandra asked me who my favorite character was I said Simon so she drew a little vampire Simon :) Unfortunately I blinked when I got my picture with Cassandra and I'm too embarrassed to show that one, but here's my signed book!


I heard that a some other bloggers were there last night, including Jennifer from Little Shelf. I didn't get to see any of them though, but if you were there last night and I missed you, feel free to tell me about your experience! This was such a fun event and if Cassandra and Holly are stopping by your area you should definitely go. Click here for their tour schedule.

Review: Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Series: Nightshade #1
Publisher: Philomel
Release Date: October 19, 2010
Hardcover: 452 pages
Source: Library

Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers.
But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything— including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?



My Opinion:

Nightshade caught my attention because of the beautiful cover. I didn't even bother to read the back or anything, so I trusted my gut and checked it out. Thank goodness I did! Nightshade was not a paranormal romance that was 90% romance and 10% paranormal. It was a perfect blend of both. Since the first page I couldn't find a stopping point. There was never a dull moment in this unpredictable plot. Andrea left me guessing page after page.

When I finally read the description, I kind of had an image of Calla being a weak character that doesn't know how to stand up for herself. I was way off! Even though I didn't like her as much, I started liking Calla when she said, "Finesse, my ass. I'm a warrior not your child bride." She's sarcastic with the funniest come backs. Although she has this tough-girl image there is a big heart under that. There's so much love and respect that she shows towards her pack and brother. Calla is a total warrior and a strong alpha.

There is plenty of action in this book but there is also that nice touch of romance. The alpha that is Calla's future mate is Ren. My first impression of Ren was that he's vain. From page after page, he begins to show that he can also be sweet and caring. Even though there were some of those moments, I'm still unsure of what I think about him. Shay on the other hand was a bit iffy to me. He's someone I'd want to be friends with, but at the same time I don't feel like I know enough about him to be his friend. I'm not talking about his history or anything I'm talking personality wise. All I can think to say about Shay right now is that he's charming and loyal. There isn't a guy that strikes me as THE GUY, but I'm kind of leaning towards Ren. Now I can't wait for the sequel, Wolfsbane which will be released July 26, 2011.


In the beginning I was intrigued by the cover and never payed much thought to it later. This week during Cover Crazy with my librarian, she pointed out that the flowers on the cover are called calla lilies. Calla = her name and lily = Ren's nickname for her. I thought that was a nice detail.

If you're looking for a great paranormal read, I'd highly recommend Nightshade.

Vy's Blog won an award!

Tuesday, April 12, 2011
The previous weeks before I've been kind of lazy on postings, but this week I've been posting way more than usual. Like mentioned before the last weeks were stressful and loaded with things to do, this week students get a 4 day weekend and a relaxed school week. I had to take advantage of that and do some extra blogging. With that said my blog won an award...


Evie @ Bookish has presented me with another award and it's the Frequent Commenter Award! I think one of my favorite things about being a blogger is seeing other blogs and getting to comment on them.

When awarded with this award you have to do three things:
1. Pass it on to at least two people. (include their web addresses)
2. Recommend four books
3. Recommend four book blogs.

Well first let me thank everyone who commented on my blog. I do appreciate every single one! There is a top commented widget on my sidebar, but I'd like to give this award to some commenters that I've just recently notice who write really sweet comments :)

Commenters:
1) Yas @ Book Comfort
2) Jennifer @ Little Shelf

Books I Recommend: There are a lot of books but here are books at the moment.
1) White Cat by Holly Black
2) Wither by Lauren DeStefano
3) The Demon King by Cinda W. Chima
4) Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Blogs I Recommend: There are a lot of awesome blogs out there but here are some I liked this week!
1) Bookish
2) Reading Vacation
3) **LC's Adventures in Libraryland**
4) I Eat Words

As much as I love getting awards I don't think I can continue to accept them. :( They're really great but I'm not sure if I will have the time to pass it on to other great bloggers. Please keep that in mind and thank you for the consideration!

Waiting On Wednesday (3)


It's a meme where we can show what book release we're anticipating.

Since this week is National Library Week, hosted at Book Love Blog, and I just love my school library I asked one of my school librarians to join in on Waiting On Wednesday. (My other librarian helped me with Cover Crazy)

Ms.Blair is eagerly waiting on:

Bitterblue (The Seven Kingdoms #3) by Kristin Cashore 
Release Date: 2011, but it has been delayed so we're still waiting for more info.


Goodreads' Summary:

Book 3, tentatively titled Bitterblue and currently in progress, is a companion book to both Graceling and Fire and takes place in the seven kingdoms six years after Graceling. Bitterblue will tie all three books together in some way. Bitterblue is the sixteen-year-old protagonist, and Katsa, Po, Giddon, Helda, and other characters from Graceling will be part of the fabric of the book. Plenty of fighting still to come!

I know that right now Bitterblue is still a mystery and there hasn't been a lot of info. on it, but like my librarian I'm really excited for it to come out. If you know anything about the release date or any updates please comment and let me know!

Bitterblue is the last book in the series that is preceded by Graceling and Fire.

Top Ten Tuesday (2): I'd Like To See Be Made Into Movies

Monday, April 11, 2011


Top FIVE Books I'd Like To See Be Made Into Movies:
This is kind of a hard because I haven't read enough books to 
actually pick some books out, but here's my top 5 list.

1) Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
This just seems like a fun movie with elegant costumes since it's during the Victorian Era. It is in talks about being made into a movie.

2) Wither by Lauren DeStefano
If they could capture the setting of Wither, that'd be quite a movie.

3) The Demon King by Cinda W. Chima (And series)
OMG! One of my favorite fantasy books! The world of magic and the characters are just amazing and the action would be great on the big screen.

4) Marked by P.C. + Kristin Cast (And Series)
This book was enjoyable but I think this would play out nicely in a movie format even if this is a vampire series. 

5) Incarceron by Carherine Fisher
I didn't enjoy the writing as much but the plot was fun! There's a lot of potential for this to be a cool movie with special affects and movie magic. I heard that it's actually going to be made into a movie at the moment too.

What do you think about these books being made into movies? If you also participated in this meme add your link with your comment and I'd love to check it out :)

Cover Crazy (6)


Cover Crazy is hosted by Tawni from The Book Worms
It's a chance to share about what Book Cover caught our attention.

Since this week is National Library Week, hosted at Book Love Blog, and I just love my school library I asked one of my school librarians to join in on Cover Crazy :) 


One of Ms.Haselden's favorite book covers is:
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Nightshade is one of her favorite covers because: (these are not her exact words but pretty close)
-The sparkles!

-The angle of her face that is shown

-Her make up

-The beautiful calla lilies on the cover.

Before she pointed it out I didn't notice the lilies or that they are called Calla Lilies. (Calla is the name of the main character and her nickname is Lily) I'm in total agreement with Ms.Haselden about the sparkles. I'm a total sucker for sparkles.

What do you think about this cover? If you also participate in this meme add your link with your comment and I'd love to check it out :)

Since I just love my school library, I decided I'm going to do a little something for this event. Not only is the library awesome, but so are the librarians who make it as cool as it is. So I've asked my school librarians to participate on some of the weekly memes I participate in and some fun Q&A stuff. Throughout this week there will be snippets about them, my school library and just some fun library related posts overall.

My National Library Week schedule is still a bit sketchy due to my poor planning plans. I know little of what will be posted ahead but this is a rough plan of it:

Monday - Ms.Haselden (one of the librarians) is participating in Cover Crazy with me, so be sure to check that out.

Tuesday - A quick introduction about my awesome school library and librarians Ms.Haselden and Ms.Blair and stuff.

Book Review: Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Series: The Immortals #2
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Release Date: July 7, 2009
Paperback: 284 pages
Source: Library

Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning. In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must chose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day..

My Opinion:

Blue Moon brings us into Ever's new life as being an immortal as well as her now developed relationship with Damen. While Ever and Damen are being all lovey-dovey their relationship takes an unexpected turn when a new guy comes to town, Roman. Damen becomes ill and everyone in school starts acting weird. Her friends start drifting from Ever and so is Damen.

I was intrigued by the plot and how everything is turned upside down. I wasn't pleased with how Ever took things though. She broke down and coped, but later on finally faced the problem head on. Ava was also another character I was disappointed in. I don't want spoil things but she lost part of her wiseness. Roman was a really nice addition to the story. He's definitely arrogant and is very sure of himself.

The writing wasn't as great but the plot was interesting. It was a great read that kept me guessing until the last page. Just a heads up, there is a cliffhanger! After an ending like that I'll be looking into the next book, Shadowland.

Book Review: Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Series: Chronicles of Nick #1
Publisher: St. Martin's GriffinRelease Date: May 25, 2010
Hardcover: 448 pages
Source: Library

At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends. . .until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.

Nick quickly learns that the human world is only a veil for a much larger and more dangerous one: a world where the captain of the football team is a werewolf and the girl he has a crush on goes out at night to stake the undead.


But before he can even learn the rules of this new world, his fellow students are turning into flesh eating zombies. And he’s next on the menu.

As if starting high school isn't hard enough. . .now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chainsaw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, all without getting grounded or suspended. How in the world is he supposed to do that?


My Opinion:

I'm not exactly sure how to word this because I felt confused after I read this. I haven't read the Dark-Hunter series before this and I'm starting to wonder if I should have. While walking into this blind I did enjoy it. I originally picked this up because of the cover and blurb on the back sounded interesting so I gave it a shot.

Nick, like me, walked into the Dark Hunters world knowing nothing about it. He was just a freshman going to school at a stuck up boarding school when things started getting weird. Everyone he thought he knew is actually someone...well some-thing else. Now he isn't even sure what HE is.

Sherrilyn Kenyon created interesting characters with fun personalities. I felt overwhelmed with the amount of characters though. Nick seemed like an arrogant person with a sharp tongue but underneath all of that smart talk he's a sweet guy. He's only 14 years old and is already stepping into the "man of the house" role. Nick shows great respect and would do anything for the people he cared for.

Overall this was an enjoyable read with a developing plot. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, Invincible to get a better feel of the series.

Book Review: City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

Series: The Mortal Instruments #4
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Teen
Release Date: April 5, 2011
Hardcover: 424 pages
Source: Bought

City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

My Opinion:

City of Fallen Angels was all I could talk about for the whole week before I got the book. The night before I had trouble sleeping from the anticipation to get it. When I finally got the book I guess all I could do was squeal and repeat, "OMG, OMG, OMG! I got it! OMG OMG!." My brother finally had to tell me to shut up and read it already. I can honestly say I'm glad he told me that because this book was (insert an awesome/cool word here)!!!

What I liked about City of Fallen Angels was that there were many POVs. (POV = Points of view) The books before were more focused on Clary and Jace but now there's some more of Simon in there. I got to know the characters way more and see them in a different way. There will be more from Simon's love triangle with Isabelle and Maia. A bit of Alec and Magnus drama is also thrown into it and Simon's little love triangle gets a surprising twist when a new character is introduced, Kyle.

Being the teenage fan girl that I am, I can say that the DSAS (Dirty Sexy Alley Scene) was even better in text. The first three books was when Jace and Clary's relationship developed and now they're finally a thing. I was really glad that Clary was still a strong character even through some hard relationship times. Sadly they do go through some issues that affected Jace's awesome attitude. I was reading a great review before I wrote this and thought the same thing about this statement, "He really just wasn’t his sarcastic, bad-ass self." from Christy @ The Reader Bee.

At first I wasn't sure how City of Fallen Angels would turn out since City of Glass had great ending but Cassie Clare did not disappoint in anyway! I was thinking there was no way someone could possibly fill in for Valentine, but I was wrong! Cassandra is killing me by ending it on such a cliff-hanger. Now I'm eagerly waiting for City of Lost Souls which is expected to be released May 2012.

City of Fallen Angels Is Out In Stores!

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

It came with the exclusive letter from Jace to Clary :) 
I can't believe the book is out today! I was so excited that I showed up at Barnes & Noble at 9:01 (the store opens at 9:00 am) to get my own copy. No worries I wasn't that late to school. Amazingly I was only 2 mins late. I've been waiting to get my hands on this book for a while now and have been counting every min. Cassandra Clare's books never disappoint and I'm hoping this won't either.

City of Fallen Angels is the 4th book in The Mortal Instruments Series. It's proceeded by City of Bones, City of Ashes, and City of Glass. I'm probably hyping this book a bit too much but this series is definitely something you should check out if you haven't already.

Cassandra Clare will be on tour and so will Holly Black. Click here to see the schedules. Lucky for me they will be stopping by Portland,OR on April 13! See you there if your in the Portland area. :)

Here's a little summary of City of Fallen Angels:

City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace.

Cover Crazy (5)

Monday, April 4, 2011

It's a chance to share about what Book Cover caught our attention.


The Gray Wolf Throne (Seven Realms Series #3) by Cinda Williams Chima
I'm a huge fan of Cinda's, Seven Realms Series and their covers!

What I Liked:

1) The blend of pink and purple! It blends so nicely.

2) I love simple covers and how it's focused on an object instead of people

3) Loved the Crown!

3) Oh and how the crown is glowing :)

4) I love the border of the cover. The swirls on the corners and how the title and author names are on the side.

I also loved the covers of the first two books The Demon King & The Exiled Queen. (It's linked if your interested to see their covers.)

What do you think about this cover? If you also participate in this meme add your link with your comment and I'd love to check it out :)
