I have a number of things that I should be doing right now. Some of these things being 1) college applications, 2) college applications, 3) homework and college apps. I refuse to accept the fact that this is my last year of high school. Instead, I live blissfully unaware choosing to live in a different world with teens who will always be in HS. I swear, this is actually going somewhere. Ah, yes. Books. I have a
million five books that I need to read. I’m hoping to finish them all soon. Today though, I will be showing you the book I’m Reading, Will Read, and something else.
What I’m Reading:
Ashfall by Mike Mullin
Many visitors to Yellowstone National Park don’t realize that the boiling hot springs and spraying geysers are caused by an underlying supervolcano, so large that the caldera can only be seen by plane or satellite. And by some scientific measurements, it could be overdue for an eruption.
For Alex, being left alone for the weekend means having the freedom to play computer games and hang out with his friends without hassle from his mother. Then the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, plunging his hometown into a nightmare of darkness, ash, and violence. Alex begins a harrowing trek to seach for his family and finds help in Darla, a travel partner he meets along the way. Together they must find the strength and skills to survive and outlast an epic disaster.
I was told by a follower (ScottReadsIt) on Twitter to read this. So far it’s moving a little slow, but I’m hoping it picks up. I know that if this book wasn’t good they never would have recommended it.
Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson
Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead—if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured—and rejected—three marriage proposals.
Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?
Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a Regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn how to follow her heart. It is Wuthering Heights meets Little Women with a delicious must-read twist.
I adored Julianne Donaldson’s first novel Edenbrooke. Regency Novels are my favorite, especially when there’s romance involved. If you haven’t read Edenbrooke I recommend you do. It’s amazing.
A Lesson in Grammer by Sherlock
I giggled at this.
