feeling bookish

I feeling especially bookish lately.

bookish: (def.) wicked in the mood to read

Classes have started, but look at that, I have particularly easy courses this semester. This means I have a bit more time then I normally would. I'm pretty into the whole reading thing. I thought it was just a fad that would grow old by the time classes start, but I guess not. I'm DYING to get my hands on some new books. I have a couple in mind. But let me tell you the other one's I finished.
Last time I blogged about books, I had just read Dead Until Dark, Marked, was working on Betrayed, and was thinking about starting Blue Bloods. Well, I finished Betrayed AND Blue Bloods. I've also read the last three books in The House of Night series, Chosen, Untamed, and Hunted, AND I read The Vampire Diaries books (The Awakening, The Struggle, The Fury, and Dark Reunion). I've been busy haven't I? Or more appropriately I haven't been very busy because I read 7 other books in a month =/
I enjoyed all of the books. The House of Night series are all pretty much the same. They have a fairly boring beginning, with something exciting in the middle, and the VERY end is the best part. It was a little frustrating, but I was hooked none the less.
I loved The Vampire Diaries! It's been made into a tv series that starts on Thursday so I'm soo watching that!
Blue Bloods was actually pretty good. I liked it. There are two other books in that series, but I think I can wait to read them right now.

The new books I'm looking forward to reading are:
1) The Hunger Games and it's sequel Catching Fire
By: Suzanne Collins
2) Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse
By: Kaleb Nation

I keep hearing excellent things about The Hunger Games. I'm really interested in reading it. Catching Fire just came out I believe.
Bran Hambric is by a new author who I've been following online for a few months now, Kaleb Nation. He's better known as the Twilight Guy. I figured I would read his book in support of his budding literary career and because I read the first few chapters. It's pretty interesting, so we'll see =)

I'm looking forward to reading and rereading all these books. Of course this will all be in between my homework and projects that I do have going on even though it is a lighter course load.

Have I mentioned I love it at my new school? Because I do =D

The House of Night Series is By: P.C. and Kristin Cast
Blue Bloods is By: Melissa De La Cruz
The Vampire Diaries is By: L.J. Smith

2 two cents' worth:
