Books I am taking to college

Hello fellow book lovers!

Today, I’ll be sharing with you the books I am taking with me to college.

If you follow me on twitter probably you already know I am going off to college, actually I’m going in the day before you are reading this, or at least the day before I am publishing this, and because I can’t take my entire shelf with me, I needed to narrow it down to only a few books. I am going to live in my godmother’s house (again, if you follow me on twitter you may know why) and I am simply taking three physical books with me so I don’t take to much space.

So here they are, the physical books and e-books I am dragging with me to college.

As I am going to come back home every weekend (it’s only an hour ride), I may bring different books from time to time. I have not read the book in the middle, I read the others, but I love them so much I can’t leave them behind.

#TheReadingQuest Wrap Up and Why I Am A Failure

Hello fellow bookworms!

Today I’ll be sharing with you the books I read for #TheReadingQuest, if you want you can go ahead and see which books where included in my TBR, but that doesn’t matter anymore because I read only 1 book from there.

I am writing this as fast as I can while I am waiting for the email that is going to tell me if I’ll be a student in the university I want, reason number 1 why I am doing it: IF I DON’T DO SOMETHING I AM GOING TO DIE OF ANXIETY! Reason number 2: If the email says a bad thing, then I’ll curl up in a ball and I’ll never blog again or do anything else.

Here they are, the book I read for #TheReadingQuest or, as I like to call it, one more reason why I suck.

And that’s a wrap, it took me 3 hours to make this whole post and the email hasn’t come yet. I’m going to read Cinder, I hope I can finish it before this readathon ends.

UPDATE: It is now almost 11pm of the next day and I just want to say that 1) I didn’t finish Cinder and 2) I got into the college I wanted!!

Did you participate in #TheReadingQuest?? If so, how many books did you read? Did you enjoy it?

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse—Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

 

This book doesn’t have the most wise characters but this series made me wiser, I was, basicaly, the only person who knew who Antaeus was in my class (even though I kept my mouth shut when the teacher asked because I’m too shy).

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

 

Just because Mare doesn’t take shit from anyone…

A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay.

When sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a technological mistake by most of society and a burden by her stepmother. Being cyborg does have its benefits, though: Cinder’s brain interference has given her an uncanny ability to fix things (robots, hovers, her own malfunctioning parts), making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. This reputation brings Prince Kai himself to her weekly market booth, needing her to repair a broken android before the annual ball. He jokingly calls it “a matter of national security,” but Cinder suspects it’s more serious than he’s letting on.

Although eager to impress the prince, Cinder’s intentions are derailed when her younger stepsister, and only human friend, is infected with the fatal plague that’s been devastating Earth for a decade. Blaming Cinder for her daughter’s illness, Cinder’s stepmother volunteers her body for plague research, an “honor” that no one has survived.

But it doesn’t take long for the scientists to discover something unusual about their new guinea pig. Something others would kill for.

 

I am currently reading this book and I am enjoying it so far // Goodreads link // Review by @abookutopia
