Random Ramblings

I haven't been posting reviews lately because of lack of time. My routine these days is to: Pick up a book, Finish or Drop it, Start a new one. I don't have the time to come up with a sensible review with every book I read so I guess I will just be posting my Read, Currently Reading and To Read for some time until I can squeeze a review or two. Or maybe in one entry I can post short reviews/thoughts about a couple of books. School sucks. I wish the semester would end!!

Onyx (Lux, #2)

So the most recent book I've Read: Onyx by Jennifer Armentrout

Short Thought: Am I the only person who didn't enjoy this book as much as the other squealing fans did? Most of the time I found myself rolling my eyes during the cliche moments. Daemon is swoon-worthy, I must admit, though Katy is freakingly annoying! It was so frustrating! I can't remember if she annoyed me this much during the first book? Hm. I keep putting off this book. Didn't finish it in one sitting, even skeptical about going through the headache of dealing with Katy. So you see, I was surprised I even finished this one. Sadly the book was not as mind blowingly awesome as her other series which is The Covenant. I hope Katy gets better (in terms of her personality) and become a little less Katy on the next installment. 

Rating: 3.5 over 5 ;-)

Masque of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death, #1)Now for my Currently Reading: The Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

I think I'm a quarter through the book. I'm currently in a neutral state with regards to my opinion with this book.. I guess I'm still in the process of engaging myself with the plot. Although so far... it hasn't yet given me a reason to put off this one and pick up a new read. What I'm expecting is for this one to blow my socks off (metaphorically, of course) as how the other bloggers would've gushed over their reviews over this one. :P So I guess I'll find out!! For my "Next Read" picks, I think I'll be posting a new blog entry tomorrow... rather later this day. It's 2:46 AM. I have to get ready for class at 4AM, so you see.. I need my sleep! :)) See what I mean when I said I don't have the time to blog about my feelings on every single book I finish reading!! So yeah, be posting more awesome stuffs later! Ciao. :-)

Review: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

"I won't tell anyone, Echo. I promise." Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms. "You didn't do that-did you? It was done to you?" No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked.

So wrong for each other...and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
