THE BOOK I COMMITTED TO READ:
Last week, I committed to read Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick. I'm halfway through it. In Tuesday, I stopped reading it for the night figuring I would read the rest of it the next night since I can't fathom reading it during daytime since the silence of the night complements the atmosphere needed to read the story. The gore! Jeez! I also want to find out what caused the electromagnetic pulse in the first place. The characters have been exchanging theories but I'm still not satisfied with the answer. I guess I'll have to find out later.
I also finished Insurgent last Monday. I gave myself a reprieve on Sunday after the emotional upheaval last Saturday and to give the people in the house a chance to get their bearings after all my squeals that managed to split their eardrums. In Insurgent, I want to bang Tris and Four's heads together. They were just so... well, the actions that they decided to do even if they're stupid to do so. Recklessness. And why can't they just talk with each other without blowing in each other's face? Still, I give Insurgent a four out of five apples. I guess I'll just lump Insurgent and Divergent together in a review.
Finally, I've read Shattered Souls which talks about a ghost-whisperer agency that employs Speakers and Protectors. Simple. Typical. It lumps together reincarnation, supernatural powers, romance, ghosts and paranormal events. Need I say more?
I'm going to knock off one of the many sequels that I would love to read. There's just so many of them. I gave five out of five apples to Immortal Beloved - which I read last 2010. So, you know, I forgot most of the story. Yeah, it sucks. But, I am going to skim through Immortal Beloved again to refresh my memory. If reading Darkness Falls by Cate Tiernan won't cut it for me, I'm going to read my first steampunk of the year: Supernatural Devices by Kailin Gow.
