Third Sentence Thursday {11/15}

(Hi peeps! I know today is Friday… HAPPY FRIDAY!!! However, I really wanted to post this yesterday but I didn’t have time to edit and post it… so here it is today!)

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

My life has seemed to become consumed with school work lately, so sadly my reading time has been far and few between. I have been reading the book “1984” by George Orwell for my English Lit class, and I have been really liking it so far! My English class readings have  been very interesting in the past, so I am not surprised that I am actually enjoying a mandatory read.

Third Sentence Thursday used to be a very regular blog post that I would publish every Thursday, but I haven’t made one since March 2015! TST used to be hosted by That’s What She Read, but her blog has since been deactivated. If any of you know who currently hosts “Third Sentence Thursday”, please let me know in the comments and I will add their Blog URL/link to this post!

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.

“Winston’s heart was thumping so hard that he doubted whether he would be able to sleep.” – “1984” by George Orwell, pg. 175

This is actually from the page I am on now! For my class, we split the book up into four different sections, and have a conference after we have read and finished each section. While I haven’t started this section yet, I assume this has to do with something related to The Party or Julia. Like I previously said, I am really enjoying this book so far! The beginning was a bit slow and hard to get into because I found it quite confusing. However, as I read on I started to understand the world a lot better and appreciate Orwell’s distinct writing style. The plot is very very interesting, and I can’t wait to see how the book pans out!

Who is your least favorite hero-esque character and why?

Probably Tris’s brother from Divergent, Caleb. He annoys me so much!

Swoon Worthy Saturday {08/15}

Hi everyone,

Saturday is a day for swooning. Swoon Worthy Saturday is a weekly meme where in we present a fictional boy who has swept us off our feet, given us butterflies, made our heart do acrobatics and driven us absolutely crazy! (Hosted by StayBookish)!

Ansel Elgort is a famous actor, that us as bookworms love, as a star in a YA movie! We loved him in The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent!

He just looks like someone who you’d want to sit down and chat with, I always enjoy those kinds of people!

Let me know who you are swooning this Saturday in the comments!

Hi everyone!

For today’s magnificent May post, I’m going to be doing a WWW Wednesday!

Originally featured at Should Be Reading… WWW Wednesdays is all about answering the following three questions:


  1. What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading Galgorithm by Aaron Karo! Expect a book review as soon as I’m finished it!


2. What did you recently finish reading?

I currently finished Red Scarf Girl by Ji-li Jiang, for my english class. Let me know if you guys would want a book review for this as well!


3. What do you think you’ll be reading next?

Well, depending on when I finish Galgorithm I may be picking up Three Day Summer. But, I am buddy reading The Selection with one of my best friends, Rachel, so I may be picking that one up soon instead with her!

“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!

Swoon Worthy Saturday! {03/21}

Hi guys!

Before we start this post, I just wanted to say that I’m really sorry that I didn’t put this post up sooner! I was having some “technical difficulties”, but since you are reading this, they are all sorted out!

Today’s pick for Swoon Worthy Saturday is Four from the Divergent Trilogy!

I picked him an honor of Insurgent coming out!

Here are a few cool pictures of him that I found:
