I started this month in a book binge in an effort to distact myself from waiting for an evaultion for an agent. I started reading a lot. Then I got the crititque back- over all very positive but needs some rewrite.
I lost all motivation to read or write and I've spent the last half of the month playing Plants Verse Zombies.
In fact right now, as I writing this, I'm avoiding my rewrites.
But I read the following books
The Ice Queen
It was my first grown up book in a long time. It was a solid read but I quickly rushed back to YA.
Simply put: the worst book I've read in 5 years. I won't go into detail, because I don't life bashing books on my blog but I do want to be honest. This book just wasn't for me.
This book had GREAT promise but sort of whined in the end.
Fluffy goodness in a candy coating. Although the cover is BEAUTIFUL it doesn't really fit with the overall tone of the book. There's about a BILLION reviews of this book all over the blogosphere.
The magical life of Long Tak Sam
graphic novel of a biography of a magician the whole world has completely forgotten about.
But the best book was The Ghost and The Goth.
I loved it. I really did. I sort of want to write fan fiction about it. It the first book I've read in a long time that after I finished it, I rushed to the author's website to find out of there was going to be a squel. YAY THERE IS!
Was it great litearure? By no means. It was fluffy fluff coated in a layer of more marshmallowy fluff. And you know what... it was AWESOME.
Basic Premise. Bitchy Cheerleader girl gets hit by a bus and the only one who can see her ghost self is a goth guy. It will take you two - three hours to read it. You'll laugh, you'll be shocklying moved by the story and the characters.
