Back To Blogging/What I've Been Reading

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in so many months. Between a move and the worlds worst internet I've fallen a bit behind. But that's alright, we'll just jump back in.

I hope you've all had a great few months filled with loads of books that have completely blown your minds. I've found some amazing ones since we've chatted last. I finally dove into the series Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi and I'm head over heels. I love everything about her beautiful and unique writing style. Her characters are messes, but so lovable and well written that you want to hug them all anyways. And the world, though it follows a few classic dystopian tropes, still managed to feel fresh. I've yet to be bored and can barely get myself to put them down. I only have the finally book in the series Ignite Me left to pick up. I always make myself break up a series, no matter how much I'm enjoying it, because if I don't I'll burn myself out on the characters/world. And when I say break up a series I mean that I'll usually spend years on one because I take so much time in between. But not with this one. This one has my full attention, and even though I've made myself read another book between each of these all I think about is finding out what happens to the characters I've grown to adore so much.

But since I break things up, I decided to finally finish the Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare with Clockwork Princess . Even though I'm only about 250 pages in, its been an amazing 250 pages. You never have to wait long for one of Cassandra's books to pick up, and this one was jammed packed full of action from the very beginning. I love the this trilogy even more than her Mortal Instruments, which is another series I need to complete (I'm on book 5). I adore the Shadowhunter mythology in both series, but I love the setting in these ones. There's just something about London in the 1800's that I can't get enough of in books. I
also feel like she writes these particular characters exceptionally well. You can tell how much she loves them and it makes me love them all the more.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to let me know what you're reading and how you feel about the books I've mentioned above in the comments or tweet them at me here, RazzleFrazzleIv

Until next time, have a great life!
