Why Internet? - August 2013 in Full

/ No comments:

My wireless router has flat-out refused to work for more than a week now, and the fact that (for reasons unknown) my pc refuses to connect to anything but wireless is even more baffling! What does this mean for FoW? It means that my schedule regarding the blog has been pushed back and back and back until who knows when. There are so many reviews that are just itching to be written and read, but I haven't had the chance to do so. My life as a college freshman is beginning, however, so I know I'll get all the internet access I need to allow this blog to live.

Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed—arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.
Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know—especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion


Title - Warm Bodies
Author - Isaac Marion
Series - None
Release Date - April 26th 2011
Publisher - Atria 
Format Acquired - Hardcover via local library

R is a young man with an existential crisis–he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.
After experiencing a teenage boy’s memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim’s human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world.
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.

Live Streaming with Kiera Cass

/ No comments:

Fans of the series, The Selection, by Kiera Cass had the opportunity to converse with the author via tweets on August 12, 2013!

I was extremely happy to be a part of this livestream, because, like many of the Selection fans, I had a few questions that I definitely needed answers for regarding The Selection, The Elite, and the final book of the series, The One. Kiera, or KiDiva as we are now allowed to call her, spilled a few beans... BUT, she outright refused to tell us the color of the third book! Yes, she's seen it!!! (Most fans are hoping it's white) And, of course, who the "One" is going to be. >.<
