Reading Update (16/2/14)

Okay, so remember when I had no internet a few weeks back and therefore read a lot? Well, for a few days last week, we had NO FREAKING ELECTRICITY AT ALL. It was really windy and a tree fell over and literally cut our power lines *shakes fist at tree*. So therefore I got quite a bit of reading done!

Also, today is the 16th of February, also known as MY BIRTHDAY! Woo! The most exciting thing about my birthday is probably the fact that I'm getting an icecream cake. omnomnomnom.

First Read
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson- 5 Stars + Incredible
THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. Seriously, it's so creative and the world building is epically awesome and the characters are so interesting and *flails*. There is literally nothing I don't like about this book (and series. Couldn't help myself and have now read all three of the original trilogy haha)

White Space by Isla J Bick- 4 Stars. Reviewed
Dracula by Bram Stoker- 4 Stars
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh- 5 Stars
Another Little Piece of My Heart by Tracey Martin- 4 Stars
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie- 5 Stars
Love in Revolution by B.R. Collins- 3 Stars. To be reviewed

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie- 4 Stars
This was a really strange book. There was some weird thing where in certain languages they used "she" for people whereas in other languages the same people would be "he" and so it was really difficult to get a gauge on what genders people were.

Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard- 5 Stars + Incredible. To be reviewed.
LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH. So many feels. Omg :'(

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi- 5 Stars + Incredible + Favourite + Panacea Candidate
That is all.

The Shadow Prince- 4 Stars. Reviewed
Panic by Lauren Oliver- 4 Stars. To be reviewed.
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson- 5 Stars + Incredible

Cress by Marissa Meyer- 5 Stars + Incredible + Favourite + Panacea Candidate
omg Marissa Meyer. Cinder x Kai is still my favourite ship. What about you guys?

The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson- 5 Stars + Incredible + Favourite + Panacea Candidate
Quite a lot of panacea candidates found these past two weeks! omg this conclusion was INCREDIBLE. So many revelations, and all these plot threads come together and ahhhh it's so clever!

On the Fence by Kasie West
I had to give this one back to Chantelle, so I thought I'd sneak in a reread before I did haha
