My Favorites of 2012

Published January 3, 2013 by bookspirit99

Hello every single person who reads my blog! I’m back! (sorry for the absence!)

Whoa! I didn’t even realize that it was the new year! Well, here are my favorite books that I read in 2012! I loved them all!

1.fahrenheit 451 Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Fahrenheit 451 really struck deep. It is a wonderful book. The ideas presented within it were very powerful in what they meant in today’s society. Ray Bradbury is practically a prophet! He somehow knew or guessed the future. This book almost makes me fear the future and what it could mean for books and reading! Read the rest of this entry →

Weekly Wishlist (2)

Published July 30, 2012 by bookspirit99

Sorry I’m late… but here’s another four books I look forward to reading! The GoodReads summaries are linked to the book titles, for your convenience and reading pleasure.

A Great and Terrible Beauty By Libba Bray

A Great and Terrible Beauty has been recommended to me numerous times. I’m excited to read this book (as always!) but I don’t know when I will have time to! I’m so busy at the moment…*looks at date, says “Oh, crap, I was supposed to do that yesterday!* The story sounds interesting. 

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

The Lovely Bones sounds like an excellent book. People have talked about it, off-handedly, saying how good it was. I look forward to enjoying it, though I don’t know when! When I do, the review will be on here soon!

The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon

The Speed of Dark has been recommended to me by my friend, Jon. The protagonist is autistic, if I remember right. It’s Sci-fi, so I’m looking forward to reading it!

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent has been talked about a lot, so I want to read it to find out what everyone is talking about. Looking forward to it, like every other book on my giant to-read list! Just another series of books I’d like to read and review!

Today I invite you to recommend books and discuss books you have had recommended to you.

Today I am starting what, I hope, is a weekly post about books I want to read. I invite you to discuss what you are currently reading or plan to read. I will post four books that I want to read, with a link to their synopsis on Goodreads, for your use.

The City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments #4)

The City of Fallen Angels! Presumably a great book, considering all the other before it that were excellent! I totally love Cassandra Clare! It’s mainly paranormal action/romance. I love it! Read the rest of this entry →

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Published June 23, 2012 by bookspirit99

The beautiful cover! It totally sums up the book!

Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story…

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead–keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home. (goodreads)
