Amy and Roger's Epic Detour

Goodreads Goodreads

This was rookie mistake, one made by countless FeEx guys. There were only three houses on Raven Crescent, and most people had reached the end before they’d realized it.

-Page 8, “Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour” by Morgan Matson


I just started reading this book a few minutes ago.
I think that this is the first time I’m reading a road trip story, it’s sounds fun. I hope I enjoy it.

Release Date: November 4, 2014 (This is coming out on my 21st birthday!)
Publisher: Patchwork Press

The odds of giving birth to identical quadruplets: 1 in 13 million.

The population of Fairview, a town so small that all anyone talks about is the Fairview Four returning after fourteen years: 7208.

The chance of Reagan blending in with the crowd after a boy in her new town starts to see her for who she really is: zero.

Following in the footsteps—and all too often, the shadows—of her sisters was nothing new to Reagan. But after fifteen years of fading in to the background, she’s finally finding her own way. Amidst all the gossip and assumptions, one person sees Reagan for what she’s always wanted to be. One of a kind.

Finally feeling like she belongs, Reagan wants to enjoy every possibility her new life has to offer, but things aren’t going as smoothly for her sisters. How can Reagan possibly let herself be happy—or maybe even fall in love—when her family is finally turning to her for support?

Blurb/synopsis from Goodreads

Princess Snow is missing.

Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back—but that’s assuming she wants to return at all.

Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.

When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.

Goodreads Goodreads

A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.


It’s funny how I both of the books have snow in the title, I didn’t plan that, it just happened.

Vampire Academy: Book 6 Last Sacrifice

Goodreads Goodreads

The saleswoman’s eyes widened. “No one has ever worn straps to a royal funeral. It wouldn’t be right.”
“What aout shorts?” asked Adrian. “Are they okay if they’re with a tie? Because that’s what I was gonna go with.”
The women looked horrified.

-Page 29, “Last Sacrifice” by Richelle Mead


Read the first four books a few years ago, then when book 5 (Spirit Bound) released, I started reading Spirit Bound, but I don’t know why I didn’t finish it until a few days ago.

I love the snarky characters and they’re relationship with each other, they’re so funny. I’m glad that in the spin off series Adrian finds someone, because, to be honest, I liked him way more than Dimitri since the beginning, but I can see that Rose and Dimitri are a better combination together, because Rose needs someone sane who can keep her in control (there’s Lissa, but she’s not strong enough and Adrian is both not strong enough and he’s also not sane either.

Goddess War: Book 1 Antigoddess by Kendare Blake

Goddess War: Book 1 Antigoddess

Release date: September 10, 2013
Publisher: Tor Tean
Format: Print (review copy from the publisher)
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 333
Source for Synopsis: Goodreads
Challenge: (personal) 2014 Reading Challenge
Goodreads Goodreads

The Goddess War begins in Antigoddess, the first installment of the new series by acclaimed author of Anna Dressed in Blood, Kendare Blake.

Old Gods never die…

Or so Athena thought. But then the feathers started sprouting beneath her skin, invading her lungs like a strange cancer, and Hermes showed up with a fever eating away his flesh. So much for living a quiet eternity in perpetual health.

Desperately seeking the cause of their slow, miserable deaths, Athena and Hermes travel the world, gathering allies and discovering enemies both new and old. Their search leads them to Cassandra—an ordinary girl who was once an extraordinary prophetess, protected and loved by a god.

These days, Cassandra doesn’t involve herself in the business of gods—in fact, she doesn’t even know they exist. But she could be the key in a war that is only just beginning.

Because Hera, the queen of the gods, has aligned herself with other of the ancient Olympians, who are killing off rivals in an attempt to prolong their own lives. But these anti-gods have become corrupted in their desperation to survive, horrific caricatures of their former glory. Athena will need every advantage she can get, because immortals don’t just flicker out.

Every one of them dies in their own way. Some choke on feathers. Others become monsters. All of them rage against their last breath.

The Goddess War is about to begin.


I finished reading this book on September 12, but wasn’t sure exactly what to say until now.
