Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

*kinda screams a lot* WHAT WAS THAT? IT WAS SO AWESOME! (Please don’t read any further if you haven’t read the first two) So. . . Where do I start? Dreams of Gods and Monsters follows Karou, Akiva, Eliza, and a few other minor characters on a journey to get rid of Jael. Not much more to say without spoiling.

When I first met Eliza I wasn’t scared, and that says a lot. When I meet new characters in the middle of a story I’m usually uneasy, but I connected with Eliza imeadiately. I think it was the fact that I didn’t know much about her, rather than knowing anything about her. Once I got comfortable with her I learned more about her.

I also loved how the book was paced. It moved fast, but not so fast that I got lost. It was perfect for understanding and analyzing along the whole way.

So overall I’d give it 90%, four stars, and say that you should really read this series.

The Truth About Owning A Bookshelf

The Truth About Owning A Bookshelf

I HAVE A BOOKSHELF! Okay, I may have gotten it around Christmas (thanks Mom and Dad) but in my months of owning a bookshelf I’ve noticed a few things and I have decided to share them with the world.

    1. You care about how your books look. Before owning a bookshelf a cared about how my books look, but now it has to be perfect. For example, I haven’t bought Heir of Fire because it isn’t out in paperback and all my other copies are in paperback. I accidentally bought Cress in hardcover, but all my other ones are in paperback. Now, every time I look at my bookshelf I have to deal with the fact that it isn’t perfect.
    2. You spend more money. Before owning a bookshelf I went to the library because I had little space for new books, but now I buy most of my books. I don’t buy any mangas or graphic novels that I read because they are so easy to read, but I have only read one novel in the past month that I don’t own.
    3. Your books are now your babies. Before owning a bookshelf I cared about my books, but I lent them to anyone that asked for them. Now I only lend books to my family and close friends. One of my friends got banned from borrowing for a long time

So there you have it, the truth about owning a bookshelf. Now you can be fully cautioned when you go out to but your own.
