Monthly Wrap Up

March 2016 Wrap up

March wasn’t the best reading month for me. I only read two books in March. For a majority of March, I was working on my final project for my “Child Development” class and visiting my dad in the hospital.

6131164 ” A Clockwork Princess“, by Cassandra Clare. This was the 3rd and final installment of the “Infernal Devices” series. I loved this series from the very beginning and was a little sad for it to end. The ending was perfect and the book gave me all the feels.The characters really came to life, and the relationships between the characters were epic and touching all at the same time. I enjoyed seeing how Tessa’s life turned out and I had to reread the epilogue several times. I also, started reading/listening to “City of Heavenly Fire” and I felt  that it really helped that I read “Clockwork Princess”, before starting “City of Heavenly Fire” because they do talk about certain relationship that occurred in “Clockwork Princess.” I gave this book a 4/5 stars.
I also read “img_0317Cress“, by Marissa Meyer. This part of the Lunar Chronicles Series. I enjoyed reading the series so far. However, this was my least favorite book so far. I just really felt there was hardly anything going on the the story and for majority of the book they were flying around in space. However, the ending of the book was amazing, and I really can’t wait to get my hands on the next book “Winter”. I was a little confusing to me at parts because there were so many different characters that had significant counterparts. In this novel, many of the characters were separated from their counterpart and I had a hard time keeping up with which characters were together. I gave “Cress”, a 3/5 stars.

Stay tuned, for my April TBR, which I am hoping to have up this week.

Until next time, warm cups of tea and just a few more chapters!

#Friday Reads 1/29/16: Scarlet & Clockwork Princess

#Friday Reads Blog Image

Its that time of the week again, Bibliomanics. Happy Friday! We worked hard and now its time for a little break. Here is what I will be reading this weekend.

Last week  in my #Fridayreads I talked about Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I planned on finishing it up last weekend but unfortunately I didn’t get a chance too. The new goal is to finish it by tomorrow night, because I would like to review it this weekend

Synopsis:

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.(Goodreads)

I am very much enjoying it. So, far nothing that I predicted to happen actually happened. There is so much suspense going on and I am just dying to find out how the story is going to conclude.

I have been trying to read a little each night before bed, but I have been going to bed really tired that the moment my head hits the pillow I am out like a light. So, now I  schedule a designated time in the morning after I get off work to read whether that be 15 minutes or an hour. I make sure some reading is being done.

Also, if you follow me on goodreads, you may have noticed that I am also reading  “Clockwork Princess”, by Cassandra Clare. I have been listening to the audiobook for about a month or two, anytime I’m driving anywhere or doing some housework I just put it on. I have been extremely enjoying it. It is the 3 book in the Infernal Devices series. This book I think is
my favorite in the series. It had so many feels, and swoon worthy moments. It also contains a very interesting love triangle, add a few demons, and scientific inventions and this book is difficult to put down. I have been extremely enjoying it.

Synopsis:Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.

Tessa Gray should be happy – aren’t all brides happy?
Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa’s heart, will do anything to save her. (Goodreads)
