Six Book Reviews

Here's my new vlog for this month!

I need a new camera. The web cam simply sucks. I apologize for the weird noise playing throughout the entire video, and for looking so pale. I'm really tan, I swear!

So, have you guys read these books? What did you think of them?

What should I read next? I will gladly take recommendations. Tolstoy does call to me, though.

I am writing my reactions as I play the video. How did you wait so long to read CATCHING FIRE?! Oh. NaNoWriMo Shmamopimo! Team Katniss Single Ladies.

LIPS TOUCH officially added to the list.

GRACELING!! I agree with your words on this. I am starting Fire later this week.

I cannot wait to read AS YOU WISH, thanks for the reminder!

GOING BOVINE...yup. Wait, you're a female...oh.

SHIVER!!! Yes, how great was that. I can totally understand your emotional comment from earlier, all the books you pointed out that I've read made me cry, except GRACELING. Tell me this, is just a little bit an hour?

WAIT, no GLEE sing-a-longs?!?! Aww.

They all sound fantastic! I've read Shiver & Catching Fire, and Going Bovine is next on my TBR list.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Those sound like great picks - I've read Catching Fire and Graceling is on my nightstand. I'll have to get around to the others, too.

Kimberly Franklin said...

Wow...that's a lot of books! And don't feel bad, I just read The Hunger Games series a couple of months ago.

Great vlog! ; )

Hey! There's an award for you on my blog =)

Oh my gosh, I love this. What an entertaining way to review books. Thanks Mariah. I have not read any of the books (shocking) although they have been lingering in my pile for quite some time.

You definitely have a fun presence in front of the camera!

Anyway, I've only read As You Wish out of the ones you reviewed and I read it in a few hours too. I liked it--I thought it was creative and fast paced, which kept the story going.

I know you're taking a break with YA for awhile but let me recommend one that I loved more than anything I've read recently: Magic Under Glass by Jaclyn Dolamore.

I read it two or three weeks ago and the story still haunts me. Plus it's a series. And I'm anxiously waiting for the next one.

Oh! And one more. It came out last year, but the sequel is due out sometime this year: Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon. Amazing story. Exotic setting (a fantasy world based of ancient China). Definitely recommended.

I have a lot more to recommend that aren't YA but this comment has gone on long enough :P
