Matched (Matched #1) by Ally Condie

I have been meaning to read this book for over a year now, and I wish I hadn’t waited so long! I loved every minute of this book. It was definitely a page turner and I had a hard time putting it down. Seriously though – I read this book in about 24 hours! What I Loved First of all, the writing was fantastic! After the last book I read, […]

Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season! I have family arriving into town tomorrow morning (Christmas morning) to stay with us for a few days. I can’t wait! Spending time with family and friends is my favorite part of the holiday season. My fianc√© and I moved from Texas out to southern California about a year and a half ago, so we don’t get to see our family as […]

How I Chose My Blogging Platform

I am what’s called an information seeker. I love doing research and learning about new things. If I’m ever wondering about something, the first thing I do is consult the internet. Chances are, someone else has wondered the same thing before (lets face it, I’m not that original) and I can find an answer somewhere on the internet. I love researching (it’s pretty much what I do all day at […]

I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1) by Pittacus Lore

I had such high hopes for this book! The summary grabbed me with the interesting storyline. A group of aliens here on Earth, the last generation of their species, hunted by the evil species that destroyed their planet. I was digging it – it sounded like a book right up my alley. Plus, they made a movie out of this book – that means it should be good right? Oh […]

Goodreads Choice Awards 2014

I only participated in the first round of the Goodreads Choice Awards this year. And I only voted for books that I had actually read (or authors that I had read), which means I only voted for a handful of books (and I don’t even remember which ones I voted for because I have a terrible memory!). It didn’t feel right to vote for books that I had only heard […]

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) By Cassandra Clare

Overall, I really enjoyed this book! This wasn’t my first introduction to Cassandra Clare’s world of Shadowhunters, Downworlders, and demons. I read the first few books of her series The Mortal Instruments a couple of years ago. You definitely don’t need to read the first series to understand Clockwork Angel, because, although the books are set in the same world, they are set in completely different time periods, different locations, […]
