Celebrate The Magic!

I am currently on a coach to Washington DC (lucky they have free WiFi on here!) so this will just be a simple post expressing a simple sentiment...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Harry Potter! Not only The Boy Who Lived, but The Boy Who Cast A Spell Over The World With His Magic Wand.

And... HAPPY BIRTHDAY to J.K. Rowling, The One Who Cast A Spell Over The World With Her Magic Pen.

Harry Potter Forever! :D

(I wonder if there's a magic spell that might let us mere Muggles Apparate into Hogwarts, just for one day, to have a massive party to celebrate this occasion....?? No?? *hopeful face*)

Recommend A...First Book In A Series

'Recommend A... ' is the awesome new feature thought up by the amazing Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit. Each week there will be a different, creative prompt for us to recommend books that we sometimes maybe forget how much we love, giving us the chance to share book recommendations of books that might not get recommended as much as they deserve.

This week my recommendation is...

Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien

  "In the future, in a world baked dry by the harsh sun, there are those who live inside the walled Enclave and those, like sixteen-year-old Gaia Stone, who live outside. Following in her mother’s footsteps Gaia has become a midwife, delivering babies in the world outside the wall and handing a quota over to be "advanced" into the privileged society of the Enclave. Gaia has always believed this is her duty, until the night her mother and father are arrested by the very people they so loyally serve.

Now Gaia is forced to question everything she has been taught, but her choice is simple: enter the world of the Enclave to rescue her parents, or die trying.

A stunning adventure brought to life by a memorable heroine, this dystopian debut will have readers racing all the way to the dramatic finish."

I love dystopians and I have read A LOT of them. Sometimes they are amazing, sometimes they are a little disappointing. Birthmarked definitely fell into the former category. I absolutely LOVED it! You can read why in my review here :)

Waiting On Wednesday [1]

So, today I randomly decided that I felt like joining in with a new meme, and, as today happens to be Wednesday, why not join in 'Waiting On Wednesday,' a fun meme that lots of people seem to participate in!

'Waiting On Wednesday' is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine with the purpose of spotlighting books we are eagerly anticipating and "waiting on".

This week (well, for a lot of weeks now, actually) I have been waiting on Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry,  and I am sure I am not alone in my desperation to get my hands on this book, as it really does sound like one of those that will knock your socks off!!!

 ' "I won't tell anyone, Echo. I promise." Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms. "You didn't do that-did you? It was done to you?" No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked.

So wrong for each other...and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again. '

I have been really wanting to read this ever since I heard about it and read the synopsis (which was a LONG time ago, which means I have been waiting a LONG time, which means Catherine is getting impatient!! ;) ) I do love a good romance, and this sounds like an AMAZING one! I am intrigued to unearth the mystery behind Echo, and Noah sounds like such a swoon-worthy character... Oh boy, I CAN'T WAIT to read this!!!

What are you waiting on this week??? :D 

BOOK REVIEW: Propheticus by Emma Daley

Title: Propheticus: The Mangitori de Sangue
Author: Emma Daley
Pages: 282
Published: 20th November 2010

"There is something frightening about the way a hateful, unknown creature looks back at you. The way its beady red eyes snarl at you, and it's cheek curls with a hiss to reveal the greedy canines beneath. It is one thing to dream of this beastly creature, and it is another to have it inches from your face, its warm ungodly breath on your cheek, and its pallid gray bones reaching to devour you. My name is Aniah, and once my world was safe. But like many others throughout the universe-and here on the planet Delucia-fate would have me meet with the Mangitori de Sangue; an ancient army of blood-lusting creatures who have been frightening and devouring the inhabitants of the universe for decades. My fate brings me deep into their world. In fact, it is written somewhere-and the stories have been told long before I was ever born-of a prophecy wherein a young woman with the heart and soul of an angel will lead the universe in a victory against the Mangitori de Sangue. I am that woman. I just have to stay alive long enough to figure out how." (Goodreads)

From the very first page of Propheticus I felt like I had been whisked away into another world - namely, the planet of Delucia. There was something about Emma Daley's writing; she was somehow able to paint a distinct atmosphere and setting with her words that I was easily able to immerse myself into.

Propheticus opens with Aniah, our main character, and her mother on the long and treacherous trek across the harsh Kohosh desert that they must make every month in order to collect enough 'Eskerberries' to sustain the 'Questerian' tribe, with whom they live, a tribe of over one hundred and fifty people. For some reason, these Eskerberries are vital for the tribe's survival during the 'Dark Months' - a three month long period of darkness when food is scarce and must be rationed.

It is here in the Kohosh desert that Aniah and her mother come across Novell, a young man on the brink of death, weak and starving.They bring him back to their home and tend him back to health.Novell has travelled all over the planet of Delucia and he tells Aniah stories from his travels, about the many exotic places that he has visited. One of my favourite places he described was 'Oceania,' home to the 'Aquaterian' tribe, a land that "overflowed with waterfalls and ponds that sparkled like a million Jetta crystals"  and where "the smell of the Crisper trees filled the air like sweet nectar, which succeeded the scent of the cool, mossy stones that lined the bottoms of the waterfalls." It was described so vividly that I could picture its stunning beauty in my mind, and felt almost as if I was there.

I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that Propheticus was told from two persepectives - alternating between the narrations of Aniah and Novell. I felt this was nice as it gave you a chance to see into the minds of both characters, and see what both were thinking and feeling.

However, although I enjoyed the beginning of Propheticus, and overall it was a pleasant enough read, things did begin to become a little tedious. I think the main problem I had with Propheticus was its pacing. Only about two thirds of the way through - TWO THIRDS, as in closer to the end than the beginning! - was the first substantial seed of storyline/mystery properly sown. And there really was hardly any action...until right at THE VERY END. Kind of a long time to actually get into the story, don't you think? TOO long.

In fact, on reflection, I can't actually remember much that actually happened in Propheticus. It was mostly Aniah and Novell talking, or just pining about their love for one another, or wondering if the other felt the same way as they did... Maybe it's just me and my memory, but now that I think about it, I really can't remember much at all happening.

Another problem I had was with the characters. Although the world-building in Propheticus was very good, the character-building fell short for me. Aniah and Novell were nice enough characters but they didn't feel real to me, and their relationship was one of those 'fell-in-love-at-first-sight' kind of ones, which I just wasn't feeling.

Propheticus seemed more like a prequel to a story rather than an actual story - I felt the plot only actually really began right at the very end; the rest of the book seemed only semi-necessary world-building and background-painting. This gives me a little hope, however, that maybe the action will actually start in the sequel, which will hopefully hold some sort of storyline, and that it will be better than the first book now that all the background story is out of the way.

Recommend A...Book That You Read This Year

'Recommend A... ' is the awesome new feature thought up by the amazing Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit. Each week there will be a different, creative prompt for us to recommend books that we sometimes maybe forget how much we love, giving us the chance to share book recommendations of books that might not get recommended as much as they deserve.

There are SO many amazing books that I've read this year that it was  really hard to pick just one to recommend to you. However, I finally decided, and the book I read this year that I'm going to be recommending is...

Adorkable by Sarra Manning

 "Jeane Smith is seventeen and has turned her self-styled dorkiness into an art form, a lifestyle choice and a profitable website and consultancy business. She writes a style column for a Japanese teen magazine and came number seven in The Guardian's 30 People Under 30 Who Are Changing The World. And yet, in spite of the accolades, hundreds of Internet friendships and a cool boyfriend, she feels inexplicably lonely, a situation made infinitely worse when Michael Lee, the most mass-market, popular and predictably all-rounded boy at school tells Jeane of his suspicion that Jeane's boyfriend is secretly seeing his girlfriend. Michael and Jeane have NOTHING in common - she is cool and individual; he is the golden boy in an Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirt. So why can't she stop talking to him?"

Adorkable was a fun, quirky, cute read with completely believable characters and it also had meaningful messages about being your own person and not being afraid to be yourself that made it a valuable, as well as entertaining, book. You can read my review of it here :)

BOOK REVIEW: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Title: If I Stay
Author: Gayle Forman
Pages: 210
Published: 9th April 2009
Tagline: 'What would you do if you had to choose?'

 " 'Just listen,' Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel. I open my eyes wide now. I sit up as much as I can. And I listen. 'Stay,' he says.

Everybody has to make choices. Some might break you. For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they're all about a future full of music and love, a future that's brimming with hope.

But life can change in an instant.

A cold February morning ...a snowy road ...and suddenly all of Mia's choices are gone. Except one. As alone as she'll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all."

 If I Stay is a poignant, moving story about love and loss that will make you think about and appreciate everything you have in life.

Mia, an aspiring musician, is happy - she has a wonderful family, a wonderful boyfriend and a wonderful best friend. Until one fateful icy morning when she loses everything. But the question remains, has she lost everything worth living for?

Mia wakes up after a tragic car accident, only she's no longer in her own body. She can't feel anything but she can see and hear everything, although it seems no-one is able to see or hear her. Is Mia dead? She soon realises this is not the case. It appears that Mia is lingering somewhere between life and death, and she has a decision to make. The titleof the book refers to this weighty decision - will Mia stay? Will she choose to live? Or will she go?

If I Stay brings together a montage of Mia's thoughts and memories, from both the past and present, piecing together, bit by bit, a picture of Mia and her life for us. It was beautifully written, crafted with sophistication and flowed smoothly like music - like a piece of Mia's beautiful cello playing, I could imagine.

Mia was a very real, believable character, I thought. She was just a completely normal, down-to-earth girl, average in every way, apart from her extraordinary passion for, and gift with, music.

You could really see that Mia and her boyfriend, Adam, were truly in love, and their relationship was wholly believable. Their love for each other stemmed from their mutual love of music and their relationship was incredibly sweet, although not without its flaws and problems, but these little details made everything all the more realistic as we all know that life, and love, never does run smoothly.

Life really can change in an instant, as Mia finds out, and as this book proves to you. It is incredible how one moment can have so much power - how many lives it can change, how many lives it can end. It is incredible how one decision can be so hard to make and how either choice will have so many repercussions.

If I Stay was a relatively short read but it was packed with emotion and beautifully written. Although not a book I would be clamoring to read again and again, I think reading this book once makes enough of an impact on you - I certainly was very emotionally affected by it; by the end, my insides had gone fuzzy and tears were pricking at the back of my eyes. A short and sweet book - I would recommend If I Stay for anyone searching for a touching, thought-provoking read.

BOOK REVIEW: A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

Title: A Long, Long Sleep
Author: Anna Sheehan
Pages: 342
Published: 11th August 2011

 *Thank you to Orion for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!*

 "It should have been a short suspended-animation sleep. But this time Rose wakes up to find her past is long gone— and her future full of peril.

Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now, her parents and her first love are long gone, and Rose— hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire— is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes— or be left without any future at all."

I was blown away by this book, I honestly was. When I first read the blurb of A Long, Long Sleep, I thought, ‘This looks good – I think I’ll like this...’ but I wouldn’t have predicted that I would turn out to LOVE the book. However, that is what happened.

At first glance, A Long, Long Sleep looks like just another fairytale retelling with a modern twist, but it’s so much more than that. Maybe it is loosely based on Sleeping Beauty, but only very loosely – A Long, Long Sleep is a whole different, brilliant story in its own right.

It’s a beautiful, intriguing story, but with a slightly deeper, darker feel to it at times as well. There are elements of mystery in the story, with many questions to be answered, and, as truths are gradually unveiled – about Rose’s past, and about the mysterious robot-like creature that is pursuing her – we begin to discover some haunting things.  (I won’t expand on this for fear of ruining the story for you!)

Rose was a character I really clicked with; I felt like I was right by her side throughout the book, experiencing everything she was experiencing. I can just imagine how terrifying it must be to wake up in a world sixty two years into the future, completely bereft of everyone and everything dear to you. As I progressed through the novel, and as I discovered more and more about Rose, I began to empathise with her and feel sorry for her. It gradually became clear that Rose’s life had been anything but perfect and the image of her as a princess, heir to an incredibly successful interplanetary empire was anything but accurate. 

The world that Rose wakes up into is a very interesting one, and one I enjoyed very much actually. Having read about lots of dystopian worlds recently, it was quite refreshing to visit a world that was more utopian. True, Rose has arrived in a world that has risen from the catastrophic “Dark Times”, which I guess does classify it as a post-apocalyptic world, but nevertheless it is more similar to the kind of ideal, technological future world we tend to imagine (well, at least I tend to image, anyway) – where there are “limoskiffs” and “solarskimmers”, where we have connections with other planets, and where texting is “antiquated technology.” 

Somehow, A Long, Long Sleep managed to really grip me emotionally and I was so caught up in the story that there was one particular point, which took me completely by surprise (and was a stroke of genius on the author’s part, if you ask me), where I couldn’t help myself but start crying. (I had to momentarily tear myself away from the book and go and compose myself.)

Through this book, as well as me, as a reader, learning more about Rose, I think Rose really grew as a character and learned more about herself too. From what we saw of Rose in the past, she was reserved and obedient to an almost disturbing extent; she seemed almost brainwashed in her behaviour, but by the end of the book she seems a much stronger, more independent character.

I’m not sure that I have been able to justify how highly I think of this book in my review; I can hardly find the right words to describe what a brilliant book it was. I think it’s one of those books you have to read to feel what I have tried to describe and appreciate it.  I’m really impressed with the way Anna Sheehan managed to take a simple storyline and use it to weave together an original, complex, brilliant story infused with so much emotion and meaning.

Recommend A... Book by a Male Author

'Recommend A... ' is the awesome new feature thought up by the amazing Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit. Each week there will be a different, creative prompt for us to recommend books that we sometimes maybe forget how much we love, giving us the chance to share book recommendations of books that might not get recommended as much as they deserve.

This week we're recommending books by a male author! Most of the books I read do seem to be by female authors, but that does not mean I haven't read awesome books by male authors too! One that I thought of first is...

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

ARE YOU A GIFTED CHILD Looking for special opportunities?
When this peculiar ad appears in the newspaper, dozens of children enroll to take a series of mysterious, mind-bending tests. (And you, dear listener, can test your wits right alongside them.) But in the end just four very special children will succeed. Their challenge: to go on a secret mission that only the most intelligent and resourceful
children could complete. To accomplish it they will have to go undercover at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened, where the only rule is that there are no rules.
As our heroes face physical and mental trials beyond their wildest imaginations, they have no choice but to turn to each other for support. But with their newfound friendship at stake, will they be able to pass the most important test of all?
Welcome to the Mysterious Benedict Society.

This is a quirky, fun book with lovable characters - Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance (ahh, I love Constance - she's so small, grumpy and stubborn that it really is quite comical but, like all the others, she's also extremely clever as well, and you only realise just how much at the end!) - that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I hope you do too!
