Last night I was pondering over this blog, thinking about how I have had it for ages but never really have gotten into posting on a regular basis. I actually quite like writing, so this blog is a nice little 10 mins out of my day. I think it should be a regular thing :) This posting is about books, so if you aren't into that sort of thing feel free to skip over this one!
While I was visiting home I made a quick stop at the bookstore, picking up 3 books. The first is part of a series I have been reading for awhile, the House of Night. I got Untamed, the 4th book. The House of Night is like a mixture of vampire saga with Harry Potter - it's about these vampire's who go to a school together, but they possess witch qualities too. It's a unique mix, and interesting even though it's completely a tween series - reading level of about 8th grade. I recommend it though if you are into that type of story.
The second book is The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. I have read two of his other books, The DaVinci Code, and Angels and Demons. The DaVinci code was FANTASTIC! If you haven't read it I strongly recommend it. Even if you have seen the movie, and didn't particularly enjoy it, I would still try out the book. I have found that movies rarely match the strength of the book, so I never judge a book by its movie counterpart.
Angels and Demons wasn't that great. I read it years ago, so I don't really remember it but it didn't grab me the way I like a book to. If I remember correctly, Angels and Demons was a prequel to The DaVinci Code, and The Lost Symbol is a Sequel. It was number 1 on the New York Times Best Seller List for 6 weeks, and stayed near the top. I'm excited to read this one.
The last book I picked up was one I had never heard about - it's called Need, by Carrie Jones. The sales clerk at the bookstore recommended this one to me as I was checking out, so I figured I would give it a try. I don't know much about it, but I'll let you guys know if it is any good.
If you guys have any books you would like to recommend I am all ears! Leave a comment if you would like :)
