CURRENTLY READING:The Supernova Era by Liu Cixin

14 February 2012

A reader's life

I recently joined GOODREADS. Boy oh boy, what I’ve gotten myself into. I love reading the reviews there. But what I love the most, is the discovery of new things to read. I listed those novels I am still reading, and which I decided to begin finishing. Also, I have three books in line, which I will only get, as a reward, once I finish that reading list. They are the following:

The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen

In her latest enchanting novel, New York Times bestselling author Sarah Addison Allen invites you to a quirky little Southern town with more magic than a full Carolina moon. Here two very different women discover how to find their place in the world—no matter how out of place they feel.This is a magical story. Here are rooms where the wallpaper changes to suit your mood. Unexplained lights skip across the yard at midnight. And a neighbor bakes hope in the form of cakes. Sounds like a lot of my daydreams. I find it might be a quite random plot-less story. But all the magic elements of it are amazing to me. And I’m a person who chase the moon, every day, in every sense. So this identify me a lot. It’s rather short, but I’m hoping is great! How did I found it: My boyfriend did, when he searched for The Book of Tomorrow price in ibooks. :) I’m SO thankful!

The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern

In short, about a girl who writes her future after finding a magical book. Great reviews. And with me being a journal obsessed person (I have 30+) this is a MUST read for me. As I do believe, putting your wishes into paper, whether is with words or drawings, does create magical results. I’m dying to put my hands on this book! And if I like it, I will buy the hard-copy, as you have to admit it, is a BEAUTIFUL cover!
How did I found it: Thanks to YouTube and Elle Fowler’s video. I subscribed, as she has my book taste. ♥

Pure (Pure #1) by Julianna Baggott

Lastly, Pure. Just because is an post-apocalyptic story about a girl who runs her wonderful prison. And people who seek freedom from the supposedly best-thing for them. The reviews are not great, but I’m curious about the post-apocalyptic views of other writes. I’m compelled to one day write my own. But I need to read them more in order to. :)
How did I found it: Writer Unboxed
Among those books there is an extra one I feel the need to read. Not out of fun, but out of work. As you see, the plot almost struck me similar to mine. Except it is not. The realms and the rules, the shaman life, and the girl; those elements were similar to my own novel, but the rest, including the plot, jump to another place in the dimensional universe. SO I have no need to worry that higher beings somehow implanted the same idea to other people awaiting who would win the race. :P

In any case, the novel is call Shadow’s Edge, it was just released this January. I found about it through “I am a Reader, Not a Writer”.

This concludes my post of the day. I am considering doing this every month. Adding three books to my to-read list and stick with it.
