Jordyn the Paperback Princess

I'm a passionate lover of books, coffee and anything zombies. I hate twilight with all my heart and soul, dont get me started on how stupid " sparkly vampires" are. Books were there for me through the toughest times in my life, no matter what mood I was in, I could always count on a good book to keep me going. I'm just the type of girl who'd rather stay in on a Friday night with a refreshing beverage and a good book than go out to wild parties. What can I say, I'm a nerd ;)

Reading progress update: I've read 47 out of 439 pages.

Forbidden - Tabitha Suzuma

This is already beautiful.

Why the hype?!

City of Bones - Cassandra Clare

 

 

This review will be somewhat short since I don't have a whole lot to say about this book. 

 

First of all, this book bored the hell out of me. It was way too long and a lot of parts dragged on and on. Most of the scenes could have been cut short. Especially a lot of the info dumps in the middle of the book. That's why it took me almost two fucking weeks to read a four hundred page book. I couldn't get past twenty or so page without putting it down. 

 

Second of all, I didn't like any of the characters at all. Well, besides Alec(at times) and Magnus. Those are the only two that stood out for me. Clary was TSTL and Jace was a total ass for most of the book. I can't believe how many girls love him. Yuck. I'm curious to see how the incest aspect will be played out. 

 

Also: Incest!! Eeeew! I hope Clary and Jace aren't really related, because that would be just fucking gross. 

 

 

And finally, the plagiarism of Harry Potter and other books. Even if I didn't already know about Clare's HP fan fiction I could probably tell this wasn't her own story. I mean come on, this book screams HARRY POTTER RIP OFF! Mundane/ Muggle. Valentine is basically Voldemort all the way down to his group of supporters. Good job being creative, Cassandra Clare! *sarcasm* Jace is Malfoy Clary is Ginny ect.. The story isn't hers and it pisses me off that she copied HP. -________-

 

Now onto the decent parts. Yes, even though I found this book to be horrible and dull, I found some parts amusing. 

 

There were some funny parts between Simon, Jace, and Clary. I found the bickering between them quite hilarious. Even Jace the Dick had some funny moments.

 

The whole history of the Mortal Cup and the Shadowhunters was an interesting concept. 

 

I also liked that there wasn't just vampires and werewolves. There are fey, angels, demons, and other types of demons like the Ravener. 

 

Alec amd Magnus. I loved Magnus in TID trilogy and I'm curious to see how their relationship will be. 

 

And before I get bitched at for hating this book, I want to say I loved TID trilogy, so haters can't say I'm hating on CC. 

 

I'm going to continue reading these because I have copies of each one, even the last book and I'm curious to see how this will be played out. Hopefully curiousity doesn't kill me! :O

 

 

Ok, I guess this review didn't turn out to be so short....my bad. Got caught up in the moment.

After the End - Amy Plum

DNF around 45 pages. Nothing is really happening so I'm putting this aside for now. Its just not keeping me interested. 

Stupid Library Due Dates....

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) 1st (first) Edition by Taylor, Laini [2012] - Laini Taylor

So..I have a problem.  Dreams of Gods and Monsters is due in two days and I'm not even 25% done with this one. *huge ass sigh* So, I have no other choice but to put these down and get back to them when I get the third book again. And that might take awhile since theres a big waiting list for that book. Fucking hell! 

-______-

 

I hate that they never give you enough time to have a newer book. Its fucking bs! 

 

Hopefully the other readers hurry the hell up so I can continue with this wonderful trilogy. I need more Karou and Akiva!! 

Reading progress update: I've read 62 out of 513 pages.

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) 1st (first) Edition by Taylor, Laini [2012] - Laini Taylor

Started out slow, but its finally picking up.

 

Poor Karou.... :( I already know that this book will rip my heart in two. 

Editing Needed

The Invaders (The Visitors Saga, #1) - Jay Ford

Good story, reminded me of District 9, but all the spelling and grammar errors ruined it for me. 

 

Like seriously,where the hell was the editing?! Sadly I won't be reading the next book due to the lack of editing. 

LOVE

My Favorite Cora Carmack

Faking It - Cora Carmack

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) - Laini Taylor

Zuzana asked,"So, if it's all chemical and you have no say so in the matter, does that mean Jackass still make your butterflies dance?"

 

Karou looked up. "God no. I think he makes my butterflies barf."

 

 

 

I freaking love the friendship between Karou and Zuzana!
