Dear readers and literary addicts, welcome.
First of all, IT'S SUMMER ! I'M DONE WITH SCHOOL FOREVER !
It's been long, REALLY long since I've last read a novel. You see, I just finished class 12, and I was grounded from reading novels since last June, except for one week in February '12. I was grounded because I spent way too much time reading, that my parents dreaded this might affect my marks at school.
Now that we've got that out of the way, you might want to have a peak at my reading list for this summer.
1) Beautiful Creatures Series /Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
I read the first two books (Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness) back in March '11, which were mesmerizing. However, due to the long time it had been since I last read them, and the fact that they are really amazing, I decided to re-read the first two books, in addition to the new short story Dream Dark and the third novel in the series Beautiful Chaos. It's a series of magic and supernatural beings, with a thread of love linking things together, all while trying not to be cut in the process.
2) Lorien Legacies Series /Pittacus Lore
As in the previous series, I read the first novel (I'm Number Four) last year, but I'm going to re-read it this year, in addition to its new sister The Power Of Six. If you've seen the movie, then you pretty much know what this novel is about. If you didn't, it talks about alien races, and that one crazy race with the will to destroy the universe, and that other race that's protecting all others, after being near extinct by the action of the mad race.
3) Wake Triology / Lisa McMannI’ve read many great reviews of this series, and an excerpt from the first novel Wake confirmed that.
4) Second Glance /Jodi Picoult
This would be my first time reading one of the works of Jodi. A friend of mine recommended her writings a LOT (YES, I’m talking about Kitten). I read an excerpt of the novel and I really liked it, so expect some positive feedback when I finish it.
5) The Truth About Forever /Sarah Dessen
In one of the previous posts on this blog, a fellow blogger highlighted this novel as being one of the best novels of 2011. I read an excerpt from this one as well, and it was pretty attractive.
I have yet to decide here, I’ve been thinking of reading either Vampire Academy series or The Maze Runner series. What do you think ? Which would you recommend ?
