It's Friday! Have You Turned Into A Book Yet? [11]

"It's Friday! Have You Turned Into A Book Yet?" is inspired by the #fridayreads 
Twitter meme, Book Journey's "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?", Should Be Reading's "WWW Wednesdays", Tynga's Reviews "Stacking the Shelves" and the various other book haul memes, and probably a few others I can't remember right now.

All covers/book title links lead to Goodreads.

Re-reading it, and it is as oh-so-good as I remember.

I've been "reading" this for a week. And I say "reading" because I am still on the first chapter.

Same deal as Finnikin, I'm "reading" this, though I am a bit farther in this than I am in Finnikin.

I just picked this up, because it seemed like a perfect spring break read, and I have been wanting to read it for awhile now.

Finishing Finnikin of the Rock (and The Sky is Everywhere) is top priority because it's a library book due the Monday after I get back, so I figure I'll want Froi with me.

I want to re-read it before seeing the movie, and I wasn't going to take it originally, but almost all the comments I got on Tumblr and Instagram (about this photo) were votes to take The Host, so I decided to take it with me after all.

It. Was. Amazing! Like, abusing-the-caps-lock-won't-even-come-close-to-showing-how-amazing-it-was amazing. I also can't believe the series is over! Though the end was the best end-to-a-series I have ever read. (And it seems since I decided not to abuse the caps lock, I'm going to abuse the hyphen. Oops.)

From my mom/Books of Wonder:
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare (signed)

From the Library:
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

Clockwork Princess actually came in the mail, but in my rush to take photos before I left for Starbucks (my internet at home sucks right now), I accidentally put it with the Bought books.

Because I skipped last week, I'm going to do a separate post for Book News (look for Exciting Book Stuff!) because it will be kinda long.


  1. I LOVE Maria V. Snyder's books! You should start with Poison Study though.

    1. Oh I have read Poison Study, as well as the rest of the series (I actually stayed up until 7a reading Poison and Magic, & then had to work at 10a. Oops!). I love Maria V Snyder, too!

  2. This is cool! I've seen this on Twitter and on YouTube but this is the first time I've seen it on a blog. Good idea! I'm following your blog and I was wondering if you could do this tag that I created called Blogging Things I Suck At. You can find out all the details and more at the post on my blog here. I really hope you can do it.
