A.A. Read a thon!!!!

   Hey guys since i missed out on the Bout of Books read-a-thon and school is official done for me I really want to join this one so this event is hosted by missbookreader and Piper's Book Blog. The links will take you to their posts on the event with all the information on what is going on and will have the official updates there.
  The main information though is that the read a thon will last a month and your goal is to read more than what you would typically read in a month. Other than that no other rules are specified i.e. no requirements. The hosts asked to see what we will try to read and I am going to try to read at least 10 books on average I read 7-8 books a month so its an okay number to start off with.

The books I will for sure be reading are (in no order):

The Fellowship of the Ring By J.R.R. Tolkien

Lemonade Mouth Puckers Up By Mark Peter Hughes

The List by Siobhan Vivian

Dream Girl by Lauren Mechling

Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

White Cat by Holly Black

So theses are the 6 books I am going to start with. All he books are from the library and was already checked out (finished 2 already) or I would of picked at least 10 books if I knew about the challenge before I went to the library. I will be going to the library though for sure again early to mid June to pick up more books. To make the challenge extra challenging for me my minimum goal is 10 I would really like to get 17 or higher and match how many books I read in January the most I have read in a month.

I will try to update and review some of the books as I go. I will also post a book haul of books when I get them so you can see the other books I am adding to my list for the readathon.

~Good Luck, Arya~

Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse

Category Young Adult

Published by Sterling

Pages 403

Read in 2 days

Overall 4/5

I read this book a while back and I loved it. Anything that involves Mythology just adds to the story and makes me really happy. Overall I adored this book and will for sure be reading the next in the series.

I liked that it took place in India I don't think I have read anything based there before. It was beautifully described and the culture of India was written really well and explained the  religion and beliefs very strong as well without being interesting without being over baring Other than Indian mythology there was some Japanese Myths in here too. I don't know about you but I adore anything Japanese.

I liked watching the characters interact and most of the time I thought it was written really well but somethings the things the characters said were odd. Not just the guys from different time periods than us but the main character who supposedly was a modern American teen girl. Being a teen girl myself some of the words and phrases she was saying was extremely dated. How many teens do you know that say "Wiley Scoundrel" ? I can't think of anyone.  That one is really the only one that stuck out in my mind but there was for sure more.

I liked the adventure and the settings for them were really explained well and the actions were described excellently. I liked watching the characters evolve and fall for each other. The ending was pretty predictable but I still loved it and will for sure be reading the next book in the series. I gave it a 4/5 because of the hot-and-cold romance and the strange wording from Kelsey.  If you like adventures and romance it is an excellent book to pick up!

Waiting on Wednesday(2)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine in which upcoming, eagerly anticipated releases are highlighted on the blog.

Wow I haven't posted a WOW post in forever. Senioritis is really setting in over here. So I figured I would include a list of book  released hopefully sooner than later.

 Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.

Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.

Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?

Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?


A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
A competition…

He even makes me forget my name. One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting…

Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?

My tale has been told again and again, and I've heard each one. Except for my hair, I barely recognize the pitiful renditions. Muddled versions, crafted to entertain laughing children…but the children wouldn't have laughed if they’d known the real story. It wasn't their fault. They didn't know the truth. Nobody did.

My name is Rapunzel and I will tell you my story. I will tell you the truth.

Do you have any books you can't wait to see come out and read? leave your link to your Waiting on Wednesday below or tell me below.
