Just your average boy-meets-girl, boy-kills-people story.
The Native American Navajo tribe has stories of a monster so wicked, so blood-thirsty, that they are to be hunted down and slaughtered. But are they just legends? Or is something sinister lurking in the shadows? The Yee Naaldlooshi—skinwalkers—have the ability to transform themselves. And they can be anyone. Anything.
The Hunters—a group dedicated to tracking the creatures—are hot on their trail and they won’t stop until every last one is dead. But are they all as evil as foretold? Seb, alpha of the Taylor, Arizona reservation pack, begins to question the acts of their kind. But he’s broken a rule and must choose between killing the girl he loves or risking everything to save her. Cassie must fight for her survival. The pack is after her. And they’re no joke. Cass is about to find out how sadistic they can be.
I then read Hopes and Dreams by Steve Dougherty, for a project I’m doing Barack Obama on. I have gotten a lot of questions as to why I chose President Obama for my project when I am Canadian, but I thought that he would be an interesting choice.
Today, I’m going to be discussing a very interesting topic in the bookish world, and that is listening to music while reading!
I do not like to focus on more then the task I need to do, so for me I don’t like to listen to music while reading. Although, I love to listen to my spotify 2015 march favourites playlist while writing out my blog posts, click this link to listen to it: https://play.spotify.com/user/alyssa_cohen/playlist/6swKEtVqNfaSg7TMdSIt8m/
I find it quite interesting when people listen to music while reading, studying, or doing school work. I could (and still cannot) never understand how in the world people could concentrate. I know at my school, you are a loud to listen to music but with only one ear phone in. This can result in me hearing what music they are playing, which can get very annoying.
My mom (HI MOM I KNOW YOU’RE READING THIS) goes on the subway to work, and she always complains that she can hear teens playing rap music on the subway (at 6:00 in the morning, may I add) and it just drive’s her crazy!
Now, it’s time where you guys kick in! I would love to hear your thoughts on reading and listening to music now that you know my opinion!
Today, I’m going to be reviewing Sea Change by Diane Tullson.
Lucas and his father are not close. In fact they hardly see each other, which is just fine with Lucas. When he travels to the remote fishing lodge his father manages, Lucas is left once again, this time with a lodge worker, a girl named Sumi. She makes it pretty clear that Lucas is on his own. But she does take him fishing and seems to be warming up to him. Then, in a horrible sequence of misjudgments, Sumi is shot in the foot. With no radio and no phone, Lucas and Sumi are truly alone. Fog rolls over the islands and it’s up to Lucas to get Sumi to medical help, a day’s journey by boat up the inlet.
I really liked this book! I thought that it was short and sweet and just what I needed.
This book was fast paced and really enjoyed it! I liked the two main characters, but really didn’t like his father, I felt like he was very selfish and stuck-up.
The setting of this book is on a resort that Lucas’ dad owns, and it sounded pretty neat!
I really enjoyed this book and gave it 4/5 stars.
I hope you guys enjoyed this short and sweet book review!
(Take any book you are reading and flick to a random page. Share the third full sentence from that page with the blogosphere as a “taster” of the book! You can also share your thoughts about the sentence (does it affect the novel? did you like the language used? was it so short that it adds suspense?) It’s a fun, fast way to offer your readers a ‘snapshot’ of a particular book.)
“We thanked heaven that Chairman Mao had started this cultural revolution, and that the Central Committee of the Communist Party had uncovered the mess in our schools.” -Red Scarf Girl by Ji-li Jiang
I’m actually reading this for school, and I’m currently liking it! Hopefully I will finish it soon and will get a review up for you guys soon! Although, to some people it is a very controversial book. Personally, I’m liking it and enjoying it!
Today, I’m going to be answering questions to a fun and creative book tag!
Let’s get started!
1. Black: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
For me, this has to be The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare. Personally, I have only read the first book in this series, and don’t plan on finishing it any time soon. But, I know that people who have read a majority of the books in this series LOVE IT!
Today, I’m going to be sharing with you a list of 20 great book blog post idea’s! This post is inspired by an event that just happened to me, as I was searching on the internet “book blog post ideas”. I figured that this would be very helpful for any of you who sometimes do that as well!
Let’s get started.
A list (such as this one).
A discussion (I call them Quick Thoughts)
A collection (bookshelf tour, bookmark collection (that will be up tomorrow!!!), etc.)
