The Purple Book Monster

I love to read books on the side as a hobby. I don't really review much, but I want to try. I'm a bit scared of it, but hopefully I will improve as I go.

The Story of Beautiful Girl

The Story of Beautiful Girl - Rachel Simon I originally had this on my to-read list but my Human Socialization class had a required reading that involved a paper and this one happened to be on the list. I was not expecting to actually like it so much. It was a very interesting story that I find difficult to describe but it is in the view of about 3 to 4 different people who revolve around this one event.
Glitches (Lunar Chronicles, #0.5) - Marissa Meyer Prequel to Cinder. I probably should have read this before I read the book but I liked having known some information prior and how the main character go to where she was now instead of briefly.

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles Series #1)

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles Series #1) - I was expecting the usual Cinderella story from this one. Well, it was not all that I expected at all and I enjoyed this one a lot. It had the bits and pieces that would make it almost like a Cinderella type of story but it was definitely unique and different. I can't wait for the sequel.
The Immortal Rules - Julie Kagawa Better than I thought it was going to be. I love how as much as I wanted it to work out between the main character and the humans, it was never meant to be. It made me sad, but I rather not have had wish fulfilled and stuck with what had to have happened. Life with her and Zeke was never meant to be, they were too different and I appreciate it.
Iron's Prophecy (The Iron Fey, #4.5) - Julie Kagawa So happy to see the adventure didn't completely end, and I am quite happy with reading all my favorite characters again. The only thing I disliked was that it was too short.

Throne of Glass

The Assassin and the Princess - Sarah J. Maas I read the prior novellas to this book being realized. I don't think I would've understand the story fully if I had not bothered. Therefore, I would recommend reading them otherwise you would be missing a lot in this particular novel.Also, I keep hearing that this is advertised as a teen game of thrones. Whoever wrote that obviously has not read A Song of Fire and Ice series. This book is more of a mix of Hunger Games and Poison Study. As for the writing, its simple and easy to read with an interesting plot. If you don't like love triangles, don't read this.

The Assassin and the Empire (Throne of Glass, #0.4)

The Assassin and the Empire (Throne of Glass, #0.4) - Sarah J. Maas Another quick read, curious how the novel will turn out.

The Assassin and the Underworld (Throne of Glass, #0.3)

The Assassin and the Underworld (Throne of Glass, #0.3) - Sarah J. Maas Another quick read

The Assassin and the Desert (Throne of Glass, #0.2)

The Assassin and the Desert (Throne of Glass, #0.2) - Sarah J. Maas Another quick read

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (Throne of Glass, #0.1)

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (Throne of Glass, #0.1) - Sarah J. Maas It was a good quick read. I needed a break from another book. Didn't have anything extravagant, but the writing was simple and easy to read through.
Beautiful Darkness - Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia I would've given it four stars if the plot in the beginning half was so slow. I was actually going to abandon reading this one along with rest the rest. Fortunately the moment I thought of it, the book started getting interesting once more.
Beautiful Creatures - Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia Originally read March 21-25, 2010Re-reading July 14, 2012 to July 17, 2012I couldn't remember what this book was about and I read it before the sequels came out. I almost thought it was about vampires because I was in that phase for a while. I actually liked this book, it isn't my favorite but it kept me guessing what was going on.

Saving June

Saving June - Hannah Harrington I got this book free in the mail from Harlequin Teen Panel. I wasn't sure about this book at first but I felt I could connect to it unlike some of the other readers who weren't. Its about Harper and her sister June, whom committed suicide. She almost literally 'Saving June'.My uncle, whom I lived with for 11 years, committed suicide a year and half ago so I was able to sucked in pretty fast to the book. I feel like those whom have had gone through it in some way would enjoy and connect to the book better than others. I wouldn't say everyone has to have been through a traumatic experience to enjoy it. Its still a really good read regardless.
Queen of Babble Gets Hitched - Meg Cabot This book was definitely an improvement from the first two. This story continues right off where the second book ended and all my thought was what was going to happen didn't come true.
Queen of Babble in the Big City - Meg Cabot I definitely liked this book so much better than the first. I think its a great quick read for a chick-lit book and its not deep or anything. Obviously this book isn't really realistic and the heroine tended to overreact a bit. Yet, she did have her good moments.
Queen of Babble - Meg Cabot I was re-reading this book because I finally got my hands on the sequels. I still liked it even though the protagonist made some stupid decisions. Then again, not everyone makes the right decision anyway.
