Weekend Reads!

MY CURRENT READ:

The King's Jewel by Sasha and Sarena Nanua
Published by: iUniverse
Published on: July 22nd, 2013


Brief Blurb*AFTER AN UNTHINKABLE BATTLE, Arica Miller is bursting with questions. The last thing she expected was to go to the source of all magic—the Sorcerers Underworld. She soon realizes the magical world is facing an immense threat: The king’s crown, also known as the Jewel, has been stolen by an unknown thief. And what’s worse, the gemstones have been taken by a magical flood that has a suspicious link to the headmistress.


My Thoughts So Far:

So far I really like this book. I like it better than I like the Gemstone honestly. I feel like Sasha and Sarena wrote such a great story so far, and that they learned a lot from writing their first. They're really promising writers! I recommend you read these books. :)

MY WEEKEND TBR LIST:



 
The Poisoned Emerald by Sasha and Sarena Nanua
Published by: iUniverse
Published on: September 2014

Brief Blurb*:

AS WINTER ARRIVES Arica Miller is back to regular school life at Hill Valley. After resolving the disappearance of the King’s Jewel and returning it safely, Arica doesn’t expect anything else to go wrong. Too soon does Arica learn that a great evil—a poison—has spread through the Sorcerers Underworld, threatening to take away all magic. And worse, the only person who can save the magical world has been kidnapped: the king. In order to find the king, Arica and her friends must follow an ancient prophecy in which they must defeat vicious creatures, travel through mysterious forests, and restore peace to the poisoned land—no matter how dangerous it could be … In this final installment of The Pendant Trilogy, Arica learns of dark pasts, unknowable futures, and the truth of the pendant’s origin. Arica doesn’t have much time left—and if she fails, the mortal and the magical worlds are both at stake.


My Thoughts:

Honestly I refuse to read the blurb. I don't want TKJ to be ruined. But I can't wait to read it!

Brief Blurb*:

"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?


My Thoughts: 

I cannot wait to read this! I love Rainbow Rowell's books! I loved Eleanor & Park and Fangirl. She's such a talented author...she's a word wizard :O! Rainbow Rowell I love your work! You are amazing!

     I'd love to know what you guys are reading this week! Comment down below what you plan on reading this weekend! Just a heads up guys, I'll be busy the next couple weeks with my term paper. I won't be reading as much because I will be swamped with paper preparation stuff. It will basically be a huge review over Little Men by Louisa May Alcott (IT'S FREE ON KINDLE!)... and a summary of her life...should be easy right?...probably not haha. 

Bon weekend mon amis!
