Recently thanks to Francoise's recommendation I've been obsessing over the Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick. I've just finished the conclusion, Finale and I'm so glad she got me into these books. The series (particularly book one) has so many things I'd usually dislike but somehow I adored this series and these certain issues didn't bother me at all. It just seemed to work and I've definitely got to give Becca Fitzpatrick credit for that. Despite our protagonist Nora, frustrating me on many occasions, Hush Hush has become one of my favourite series. The story lines are so cleverly crafted and the story is fast paced and almost impossible to put down. Plus there is Patch and omg I love him so much, he has easily climbed to the highs of my book boyfriend list.
Recently I read Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone for the first time which felt like a massive achievement. Harry Potter has such a big fandom and I definitely felt out of place not being in it. It was one of my New Year's resolutions and I was so glad to have achieved it so early on in the year. Despite having seen most of the movies, I loved it and thought it was a lot of fun. It is such a creative idea and I was easily transported into the world of magic JK Rowling so vividly wrote. It was a fun read and I'll definitely be continuing with the series at a later date. I rated it 4 stars. Why not 5? I think it came down to already knowing the storyline and me being older than the targeted audience.
Currently I'm on my second last week of a 6 week school holiday and I've been trying to make the most of this time by reading and writing posts as much as I can. I've already read 11 books which I feel is a really good start for my goal of 100 books read in 2014. I'm trying to read a combination of both review and non review books because I'm determined to get these reviews going but still read what I want. Once school starts again things will get pretty busy again and especially now that I don't have a computer, I'm trying to schedule as many posts as I can so my blog doesn't suffer because of this.
So far these holidays I've been on a coastal holiday and attended apple camp. A program run by Apple (yes as in the one who makes IPhones) where you make videos. In other news, I GOT A TURTLE! Next I'm planning on reading You Don't Know About Me by Sophia Bennett. What are you reading at the moment?
