Most recently bought books. I haven’t read any of them yet, I have started The Rest Of Us Just Live Here but I haven’t completed it. I’ve just been too stressed to read at the moment so I had to do a post on Everything Everything so I didn’t disappoint.
The Shannara Chronicles – The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks
Anyone been watching the TV show? I had no idea what Shannara was before I saw that there was a TV series! I was actually pretty excited with every episode that came but I have only watched three episodes (Due to issues at home and school). I love the new cover!!! (Shown ABOVE ^) Its a fantasy trilogy set in the distant future with elves, trolls and anything you can think of that can go in a fantasy world. This book isn’t the first book in the trilogy but is said by many to read this one before #1.
Ancient Evil threatens the Elves: The ancient tree created by long-lost Elven magic, is dying. When Wil Ohmsford is summoned to guard the Amberle on a perilous quest to gather a new seed for a new tree, he is faced with the Reaper, the most fearsome of all Demons. And Wil is without power to control them….
The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
I can tell you that it is amazing to see a story with characters that are not like the ones that are going to die or have something terrible done to them if they don’t save the world. I love how Micky is just telling the story as HIS life and nothing really odd happens (Only towards the middle of the book). He only wants to finish high school and avoid the strange goings on around him. AMAZING. I am yet to finish it.
The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?
What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.
Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.
Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions.
Award-winning writer Patrick Ness’s bold and irreverent novel powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable
I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson
So I kind of only bought this book because it sounded interesting and I kept seeing reviews on Tumblr that said it was so good. I’ve seen some of the quotes that come out of this book and I cannot wait to dig into it (When I actually have time). MY FAVOURITE QUOTE I SAW “Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story.”AMAZING!!!!
Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah’s story to tell. The later years are Jude’s. What the twins don’t realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.
Tomorrow, When The War Began by John Marsden
My mum has been bothering me to read this book since year seven, she recently just re-read it and said she loved it once again still having the same feelings and reactions as she read it the first time. I mean I’ve wanted to read it but I said to her last month “I’ll only read it if its hardcopy”. Well look at that. I’ve got it. I’ve watched the movie… Is that good enough? Set in our very own Australia and some country tries to take over thinking that they need their fair share in land. These teens try to fight off these people because they INVADED their town and may have killed some of their friends/family and such. I’m sure everyone knows the basic story line so I’ll get to the synopsis.
When Ellie and her friends return from a camping trip in the Australian bush, they find things hideously wrong — their families are gone. Gradually they begin to comprehend that their country has been invaded and everyone in their town has been taken prisoner. As the reality of the situation hits them, they must make a decision — run and hide, give themselves up and be with their families, or fight back.
So this is the end of the first post… without Cailey on the blog. Its sad really. I thought we were going to blog anything and everything we thought about life, books and uh- just everything.
I hope you guys enjoyed todays post. EXPECT A REVIEW THIS WEEK TOO! I may or may not tell you before hand which book it is… OK BYE FOR NOW.
