Been here a year!

Happy anniversary to me and my blog!

When I look back, I never thought we would make it this far, but here we are. Look how far we’ve come! I’d like to thank my loyal followers, my parents, my local library, and my cat.

But seriously, I really didn’t think I would be able to keep this thing going. I’ve tried blogging before but I just never felt the need to share my thoughts with the world for extended periods of time. Until I realized that I could write about books, which is something I love an awful lot.

Unfortunately, in my post on my blog about books I have no news about books to share because i haven’t even started another book since I finished “Paper Towns” the other day. But I read probably 8 BuzzFeed articles about Harry Potter today so that is definitely forthcoming eventually.

Anyway, I am all kinds of tired so we are keeping this short.

Here’s to many more,
Maegan

“Paper Towns” by John Green

PaperTowns2009_6AJohn Green is my favorite. He is so witty and there’s so much humor. I want to write like John Green.

This book has been out for several years but I only just got around to buying it. Yes, that is partly because the movie is coming out in June. But now I can’t wait for the movie because the book is really good. Admittedly, the first half pulled me in a lot more and then seemed to slow down, but just the interactions that John Green creates between these characters is worth it. His writing is amazing. Definitely my favorite author. Makes me want to reread “Looking for Alaska” and read “An Abundance of Katherines” and “Will Grayson, Will Grayson.”

This book is about Quentin Jacobsen, affectionately referred to as “Q” by those close to him, and his search for the ever mysterious Margo Roth Speigelman. Spoiler alert, I don’t think Margo Roth Spiegelman deserves Quentin’s time and energy. But you know, can’t tell a fictional character that.

It’s written in three parts, with each part chronicling a different part of Quentin’s being with/discovering Margo Roth Spiegelman.

I just can’t get over how much thought must have been put into this book and the planning it took John Green to make this world.

I really want to write a book. I want it to be as good as John Green’s books but I feel that is a standard that is difficult to achieve.

Maybe, maybe not,

“Finale” by Becca Fitzpatrick

12751687The only reason I finished this one so quickly is because it’s winter break from school so more free time. More but not a lot more so I didn’t finish it as quickly as I wanted. I also pushed myself to read it because my queue is growing and I have other books I am super excited to read after this. I mean after all, I did get a Books-A-Million gift card for Christmas.

This is the fourth book in the “Hush, Hush” series. More fallen angels, half-bloods, yadda yadda yadda.

It seemed like there was a lot more backstory explaining in this one, so if you picked it up without having read the first three you might possibly kind of know what is going on, but I still wouldn’t recommend it. But then again, I am a firm believer of reading from book one, every time.

One big thing about this book is that basically the whole time the main chick, Nora, is talking about having to go to war and yet, there are literally like 7 pages dedicated to the battle in the last chapter. It is quite uneventful. There were some deaths, the end. AND a major character has a bad time in said battle and it doesn’t even seem like anyone feels the need to recognize.

I still like this series, but this book is not going to top my list in order of preference. It could’ve been executed better.

Anyway, I’m going to start John Green’s “Paper Towns” after this. Yes, it’s because they’re making it into a movie.

Sue me,
