Books

I wait each day,

As one after the other comes out,

Devouring them

With a hunger that can only

Be seen as needy;

As if an addiction or

A necessity to survive,

I need to read.

I don’t think, I learn

I don’t live, I die

I don’t run, I’m saved

I don’t cry, I’m safe

I don’t travel, I’m transported

I don’t play,

I read.

Top Ten Books You Can’t Live Without Reading

Yello everyone! So first off, thanks to JMatik who suggested this wonderful idea after I couldn’t figure out what to write. (sheesh I’m already running out of ideas!) So I have a new idea: why not have you guys suggest the top tens for books? And I’ll figure out which idea to use and what books fall in under the category….sound good? Ok, now that that’s been taken care of, onto the list! Here it goes:

1) The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling (this is a definite given; it’s such a surprise that some have not read them or even watched them…..the horror!)

2) The Seven Kingdoms Trilogy by Kristin Cashore (these are a MUST read. If you do not read them you will be deprived of the greatness that is Kristin’s writing. It is so fantastically awesome and I’m kinda in love with the books. You have to read them.)

3) The Mortal Instruments by Casandra Clare (oh, ya you better read these books; they are fantastic and they are pretty funny!)

4) The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah E Harkness (these books are so fantastic, realistic – well as realistic as you can get in a fantasy world -, amazing, amusing….I could go on and on. Take my word for it, you should definitely read these!)

5) The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins (these books are so good and puts stuff into perspective. A definite read.)

6) The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan (this was one of the two series – the other being Harry Potter – that dominated my childhood)

7) The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan (this is the “sequel” to the Percy Jackson series…..kinda….not really….it’s a continuation that you have to, have to, HAVE to read)

8) The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer (these books are soo good…you have to read them!!!!)

9) The Women’s Murder Club by James Patterson (this a really long series which I absolutely love with so much crime and mystery and wonderfulness! It’s just so goooooood!!!!)

10) The Mother – Daughter Book Club series by Heather Vogel Frederick (ohhh how good these books were/are. They reflect life perfectly ish and I so want to be part of their world…..)

 

Anywaysies those are my top ten books that you cannot live without reading. Again, thanks to JMatik for his wonderful suggestion and don’t forget to comment what you think and/or what the topic should be next time! Tata for now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spring is…

Spring is

The smell of freshly cut grass,

The feeling of happiness,

The colors yellow, pink and green,

The allergies,

The new life waiting to be discovered,

The new beginnings,

The animals coming out to play,

The flowers that seem to bloom all at once,

all creating the feeling that all is well and

the world is beautiful.

The Cairo Affair by Olen Steinhauer – Review

Salaam everyone! So I just finished The Cairo Affair by Olen Steinhauer and it was FANTABULANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, the first reason why I picked the book up was that I was bored and needed to read, and the second was that I have visited Egypt alot, so I freaked when I found a fiction-y mystery/crime book on Cairo AND the CIA/FBI/other cool spy stuff. So it was fantastic (as I demonstrated by the huge-astic words and multiple exclamation marks above) because the story was seamlessly told from differing perspectives and times and that is insanely hard to do so that was one thing I loved. The second thing was that the writing and characters was/were so good; the characters were very well written with detailed backgrounds and story lines that seamlessly (there’s that word again) flowed and mixed with each other so well. The other thing was the amount of secrets and buildup that made the book sooooo hard to put down whilst reading it and after reading it like honestly when you find out how the characters relate to each other and their secrets, you will freak as well. The fact that were spies in it as well was probably one of the bestest things because I have always loved spies and spy books as well as crime and mystery books so that was a given. It was such a great book (though there was a bit of mature content) so you should DEFINITELY read it. You have to, it will blow your reading mind. Ok then adios guys! Tata for now!
