Book of the Week: Legend

Its been a pretty awesome week for me. I’ve really realized how much AWESOME is coming this year. Cassandra Clare alone is bringing a ton of awesome this year, if you read my blog post yesterday. So many movies (City of Bones,Sea of Monsters, Ironman 3, The Hobbit 2, Catching Fire, Monsters University, 42, and on and on) are coming out, and books. Fall Out Boy is back together; I get to see my music god, Andrew McMahon, back in concert.

So much awesome. Its also been awesome in my reading this week.

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this book with you guys ALL WEEK.

I’ve fallen really behind on my 200 books goal. It was my first week back at school, and I’m working extra hours at work this week so not a lot of time for casual reading. Kind of makes me sad, I was on a roll!

But anyway, the last book I finished was Prodigy by Marie Lu. Right before that, I read the first book, Legend. And I was pretty blown away. I knew immediately that I wanted it to be the Book of the Week.

Shadowhunter News!!

Today was a SERIOUSLY good day to be a Shadowhunter, a.k.a. a fan of Cassandra Clare’s series, The Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices.

For those of you who are unware of what I’m talking about it, you obviously don’t read my blog. I am obsessed with both of those series. I even have a tattoo, a rune that Ms Clare created for her characters, the Shadowhunters.

Anyway, they are seriously popular and amazing young adult-fantasy-romance novels, and I’m addicted to them. In just a month, the final installment of the Infernal Devices series will hit the shelves, and in about six months, the movie adaptation of City of Bones, the first book in the Mortal Instruments series, will hit theaters. Combine that with the fact that she’s releasing companion stories of extremely popular character, Magnus Bane (who appears in both series), and the much anticipated Shadowhunter Codex, in addition to going on tour to promote these, and it looks like a year for Ms. Clare.

Music Monday

Welcome to my new weekly segment.

This is basically a fluff piece to remind everyone that I’m here and to keep reading this blog…basically.

I just want to have an excuse to keep writing, and sharing things with you guys.

So every Monday, I’m gonna share a song with you guys; whatever song is in my head, whatever song I just discovered, a song I liked from a TV show or a movie, whatever.

Tuesday Top Ten-Favorite Star Wars Moments

So, I don’t know if you’ve been keeping up with the nerd news lately, but it was just recently announced that J.J. Abrams will be directing the 7th installment of the ever-growing Star Wars franchise.
And while I’m still unsure about how I feel about a 7th installment, I feel slightly better now that I know a reputable and mostly trusting director is at the helm. I’m more concerned on who is going to write the thing, because the story is what worries me the most. The cinematography of the prequel movies was great (although at some points, they should have eased up on the green screen…) but the stories are what made them so bad. So I hope that whomever they get to write the screenplay will impress me as much as J.J. Abrams as director.
Moving on though, because they just recently announced that there was a director, I thought a good Tuesday Top Ten would be remembering some of my favorite Star Wars moments. Enjoy!
