A Week in Review 3/30/13

A Week in Review

Apparently I’m jut not good at Saturday mornings anymore ;-). I’m coming up on the last month of my semester and several of my classes have decided that this is when final projects and exams should be due, not in a month like normal people >.>. I might be a little bitter ;-). In any case, things are a bit busy and I’m relying on happy books to make me feel better, hehe.

My Week

The Summer PrinceI finished The Summer Prince this week and while the ending was much more exciting than the rest of the book, I still was disappointed that it took so long to get engaging. If the rest of the book had been as action-packed, I would have been a lot happier. My review will be coming shortly because I need to type it up before Netgalley archives it. I’m sad it took me nearly a month to read one book D: .

Clockwork Angel

My new audiobook is Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare and I’m looooooving it! Thanks to Simon and Schuster Audio for sending me audiobooks of the first two. I’m a little nervous since apparently the narrator changes in the second book, since I love her so much right now! She narrates with an American accent but does the British accents wonderfully (in my un-knowledgeable about accents opinion). In any case, the story is also most excellent and I wish that I was reading the physical copy sometimes so I could keep reading after I stopped driving, haha!

Poison

Finally, I’ve been meaning to read some books on my shelf for a while, so Poison is up since it’s so nice and short ;-). I was a little surprised at the lighter writing, but now that I know what to expect from this book, I’m happy with the fun atmosphere and lighter fantasy style.
