Invasion of the Month!

   So apparently this became alien invasion month! Not something I would have ever imagined myself saying. I have never been a huge fan of invading alien stories, but after reading The 5th Wave, I’m branching out a bit. 

    I found an article that talked about The 5th Wave. Not an actual review, but just a brief summary of what to look forward to while reading. On that same article was supposedly a book similar to The 5th Wave. Once again, I have found a book I know little about. Actually, I know nothing about it, because I have never even heard of it! So here is my next book to review:

By: Margaret Stohl

According to the article, if you like one you will like the other. Each have the same basic idea of aliens invading Earth, but one is different from the other. The 5th Wave was a bit more dark compared to this novel (or at least that is what the article said).

Unlike with The 5th Wave, I have not heard any good or bad reports from my friends, nor have I taken the time to research it. (not something I normally do. I like to be prepared). So I am going into this one blind. **shivers** 

I finished The 5th Wave and the review for that is coming shortly. I was on a mini vacation last week and didn't take the time to type up the review before starting this new book. 

Time to get lost between the pages, talk again shortly!

Review for both books coming soon!

Gotta Start Somewhere..

  So after a lot of consideration, I have decided on my first book for my first book review on my first blog! (That is a lot of firsts!)

  After hearing some pretty good feedback for this book from other readers it peaked my interest. Then a few friends have read it and enjoyed it, so I have broken down and decided to actually give it a try.

My first review will be on:

The 5th Wave
by: Rick Yancey

  I personally didn't know much about this book at first, but after looking into it a bit I have developed an interest in it. I am anxious to see how this story will be. By the description the author gives us, I am pretty much hooked. I just hope it doesn't fall short of my expectations or the praises I have heard/read.

So if you want to read this book with me, grab you a copy and feel free to read along.

Review for this will be coming soon!

Well, Hello and Welcome!

  If you are here reading this, then somehow you have found your way to my very first ever blog! While this may not seem like a big deal to you, for me it is a very BIG deal.

  I have wanted to start a blog for a while now, but I could never find the right motivation or inspiration to actually start one. But, as you may can tell, this has changed. I now have an idea for a blog that I believe I can work with.

  You may be asking yourself, what is this idea she speaks of? Well don't worry, I'm going to tell you!

Drum roll please.... BOOK REVIEWS! 

  I know this is not an original idea. If you look through a few blogs for reading you will see a large number of book review blogs out there already. However, I want to take a crack at it myself and have my own little corner of the web to express my opinions on the books I have read and plan on reading.

  Since this is my first time actually blogging, it may take a bit of time to get the ball rolling, and even if it is rolling, to have a smooth road for it to roll on. So bare with me if you can. 

  I hope to make this fun for all readers, and I can't wait to really get this moving! 

 Although this blog is meant for book reviews, don't be surprised if you see a few random topics on here that I just felt like covering. This is very likely to happen considering I can be quite random. I will try to keep everything book related, but sometimes I tend to run with other ideas. Or better put, sometimes they just grab my hand and pull me along. 

 I might want to warn you, although I plan on covering a bunch of different types of books, most will probably be YA books. I may be too old for them, but whatever, you can sue me. Adult books are a good read, but somehow they lose the magic and adventure that YA books have. 

  So anyway, I guess that is all I wanted to say to welcome you to this blog! I hope to hear from some of you that actually take the time to read my ramblings.

 Information about my first book review will hopefully be coming soon, so keep tuned!
