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 →

Exiled by J. R. Wagner

The Excellent Book Cover of Exiled by J. R. Wagner!

James has never known an ordinary life. As long as he can remember, he and his family have been on the run—moving from place to place, never settling down, never growing roots. Now, just when he’s on the brink of manhood, the very thing his family has been trying to prevent tears him from all he has ever known and thrusts him into a place where he is powerless and alone.

Bent on finding a way back, James must brave a place reserved for the worst of his kind. He quickly learns that the land itself poses a greater threat than its inhabitants and if he is to have any chance of returning, he must work with the very people he’s been raised to fear.

James has known magic since just after he was born. As a sorcerer, his skills are exceptional yet when he wakes in The Never, his abilities are gone. Armed with nothing but determination and the will to survive, he braves a land wrought with dangers, mysteries and temptations meant to ensnare both body and mind and prevent escape forever.

Published July 23, 2012 by bookspirit99

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 →

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

The book cover! It’s pretty cool!

Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It’s gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie’s estranged father–an elusive European warlock–only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it’s her dad who decides her punishment: Read the rest of this entry →
