Ever

June 9, 2009

EverEver By Gail Carson Levine

I need to start writing down immediately what books I’ve read, because I almost forgot to put this one down. I feel like there were more I read, but I can’t remember. Bad memory sucks.

Anwyays this book was ok. I enojyed Levines other books more. I think the reason why this story was compelling was  the question of faith. I think this is a theme that many people can relate to. I certainly do.

Blue Bloods

bbBlue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz

Ok. This one took me by surprise. I’ve seen it on display at bookstores for awhile now, but I wasn’t really that intrigued by the storyline. Rich people of New York (the elite ones) are the Blue Bloods…Vampires.

AH. Another vampire story. But surprisingly the storyline moved along quite well and I found myself quickly turning the pages to find out more. I’m going to have to take a trip to the library so I can get my hands on the next 2 books.

earthlyknightAn Earthly Knight by Janet McNaughton

Princess Ben

pbPrincess Ben by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

This girl isn’t your typical Princess. She isn’t a raving beauty. She’s pudgy and can’t control her desires to eat. She is however witty and smart. Her parents are both killed by some unknown force. She’s convinced its the neighboring kingdom…

Her aunt (the queen) locks her away in a tower to teach her to become a better princess? oh and also to keep her safe. I kept expecting her Aunt to be the evil one, but turns out she’s not.

Princess Academy

Princess_AcademyPrincess Academy By Shannon Hale

I recently picked up this book to reread. I read it once before long ago. I enjoyed it then and I enjoyed it now. The story is of a young girl named Miri. Her people and family live on the mountains where they harvest rocks. Linder? To be exact. Anyways. All the local girls from her village/town? are gathered to go to a princess academy. There was a prophesy that the future queen would be found there. So off they go to get their training to be a proper princess. But the girls get captured by bandits but Miri saves the day because she discovers that she can “speak” to others from her town by holding the rocks.

 

Man. I really need to write these reviews right after reading the book, because its already becoming hazy. -_- I read too many other books afterwards…
