What I’m Reading…

So, I am doing that Goodreads reading challenge again this year, and I decided that I would do 150 books. But lo¬†and behold, I’ve been slammed with so many other projects and just crazy overtime at work, but I’ve managed to read “68 of 150 (45%)” thus far. Am I ever going to manage more time to read and complete my goal? *dun dun¬†dunnn* Going to damn well try. Anyhow, I do love to have multiple books to read at a time due to my annoyingly inescapable¬†ADHD. My imagination and I love to have a different world to hop in from time to time, and being a quick reader, I am not hindered by the sudden change of atmosphere(genre,plot,characters etc.), just makes my nerdvana¬†a happier place to be! Soooo, this week, I have a reread by the one and only JR Ward:

And let me tell you… I read this before the Black Dagger Brotherhood, so when I read the Fallen Angel series¬†the first time, I kept having those moments like, “I feel like I missed something…”everytime she introduced a character real quick, places, etc. It all makes sense now! I just about busted out laughing when Marie was walking out of the bible group, and the Neurotic Anonymous members were coming in after her, and we were introduced to a tall, strong man with wild and long multi-colored hair. I shouted, “OHURY!” There’s BDB Characters crawling ALL OVER THIS BOOK! Rehv¬†at the club, Trez, all of them. It finally makes sense to me! Thank goodness for re-reads! And might I add, this story is just as magical the 2nd time as it was the first. I love love¬†love love….you get it… Jim.

And as for my second book I am using as another get-a-way, is:
frostbite
I know I am behind reading this series, and¬†trust me, after reading the first one, I regret it big time! It was just that I am such a huge fan of vampire novels, and it seemed like everyone started jumping on the YA Vampire Bandwagon after Twilight, and the mythical race was slowly being ruined for me after every book I gave a chance to. Well, I am catching up fast now! My only issue about this book and the first, is the highschool drama, but I know what I am getting myself into by reading YA, but I also trust it will all tie into the big plot eventually. Till then, I absolutely love Dimitri, and our main heroine¬†Rose. She’s feisty, strong, and willed. And Richelle Mead’s vampires are absolutely original and refreshing.

I also found a freebie on Amazon which I am enjoying thus far:

I am just now beginning it, but so far I love it! It’s narrated in first person, and we have a picture of her painted as a big, badass b*tch/witch in prison and no one has an idea how powerful she actually is.

Well, there’s my rambling for today, I am anxious to dive back into one of my few picks and live in a fantastical world for the day!

The Mind Readers

So, sometimes I love to browse the freebies on Amazon Kindle, and stumble upon these little gems.
This is the first book in an Indie series, narrated in first person, and great for all YA readers of all ages. Cameron Winters is perfect heroine, who has the ability to read minds. In avoidance to expose Cameron’s abilities and to not attract attention from a private investigation that’s been hunting her kind for years, her grandmother moves them around constantly, causing Cam to never really have any friends. She was doing well in a small quiet town, till strange things began happening…A handsome boy just like her shows up in town and persuades her to come with him to a training facility for children owned by a wealthy man who instructs people just like them, to use their powers for good and protection.

This novel flows at a mysterious, quick and thrilling pace, leaving the reader to believe one thing but then given a turn when least expected. This author is a brilliant!

I would have loved to have built a relationship with certain few other characters that are mentioned and have important parts in the first novel; because I feel they are very promising in the rest of the series. And the ending was just astounding. I was predicting a cliffhanger in some way, but the cliffhanger we get, I am almost positive you won’t see it coming either!

My feelings on The Mind Readers: This book was cute and pleasing at the start. As the book went on, I became curious, the author tries to throw off the reader and make us reconsider who we’re rooting for the entire book. Last two chapters…BOOM! *jaw drop* A bitter-sweet cliffhanger.
Definitely not a cliché YA reader, what I appreciate about this novel too, is that it isn’t just about the romance , barely at all. It focuses on a strong heroine who fights for good, and nothing else.
