Let the reading and blogging start!

Finals week is FINALLY OVER!!! I am now free to do nothing but read YA books I can't stop ogling about. So what will you be expecting from my book blog? 

What I'm Currently Reading - take it in its literal sense. It will be about what I'm currently reading =))
Vocab - new words (at least new to me) that I will be encountering. So as to enhance my vocabulary ;-) Kinda lame and nerd-ish, eh?
Reviews - Well this site won't be considered as a "book blog" if it won't be containing book reviews right? ;)
What's hot and what's not? - Random list of books which I came to like/love very much and also books which didn't meet my expectations or I was just downright disappointed with.

That's about it for now. And for what I am currently reading....

Oppression (Children of the Gods, #1) 

Oppression by Jessica Therrien

Synopsis (from Goodreads)
Elyse knows what it means to keep a secret. She's been keeping secrets her whole life. Two, actually. First, that she ages five times slower than the average person, so that while she looks eighteen years old, she's closer to eighty. Second, that her blood has a mysterious power to heal. For Elyse, these things don't make her special. They make life dangerous. After the death of her parents, she's been careful to keep her secret as closely guarded as possible. Now, only one other person in the world knows about her age and ability. Or so she thinks. Elyse is not the only one keeping secrets. There are others like her all over the world, descendants of the very people the Greeks considered gods. She is one of them, and they have been waiting for her for a long time. Among so many of her kind, she should not be very remarkable--except for the prophecy. Some believe she will put an end to traditions, safeguarded by violence, which have oppressed her people for centuries. Others are determined to keep her from doing just that. But for Elyse, the game is just beginning--and she's not entirely willing to play by their rules.

Thoughts: I was skeptical to pick up this book because I'm not really a fan of books with mythological themes (there's one exception: underworld). But given the good reviews about this book which I came across I am convinced that I should give this one a try. Will be posting my review as soon as I'm done with this!! :-D
