Book Blogger Hop 9-30-11 thru 10-3-11

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and runs from Friday to Sunday. This week’s question is:

“In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?”
Click here for 2010-11 list in PDF format. You can also click HERE to view past years and choose from any of those titles!

Okay, I can’t pick one. The thing that amazes me about this list is the books that are on it. I know, that’s the point, right? I’ve said it in an earlier post and I’ll say it again – it’s a personal decision. One parent’s opinion, or even my opinion, shouldn’t dictate what another’s child can or cannot read. Voice your opinion, give good reasons why you don’t think a book should be available to your child and I’ll listen. I may not agree, but I’ll listen. Then I’ll read the book and decide for myself whether or not it’s appropriate for my child to read. Don’t take the decision away. Now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, I suppose I need to pick a book. If I have to choose just one it would have to be Stephen King’s The Dead Zone. There are a score of books on the current list that amaze me and they are mostly books I read and loved. The Dead Zone was my introduction to Stephen King though. Would I give it to a middle school student to read? Probably not, but I did give it to my teenage daughter to read when she was a junior in high school and needed accelerated reader points. She shares my love of reading and I’m thrilled. I’m sure when you look over any of the available lists, you’ll find a book that you love too.

Teaser Tuesday 9-27-11

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Well I haven’t done this for a while. This week’s Teaser Tuesday is actually from my current read. See, I really can follow the rules (sometimes.) My Teaser this week comes from Michelle Muto’s Don’t Fear the Reaper. Before I get to the teaser, let me just say that I knew that I would like this book, I just had no idea how MUCH I would like this book. I loved Michelle’s first book, The Book of Lost Souls, so I was already familiar with her style of writing. Both books are YA, but their similarities end there. Don’t Fear the Reaper is a lot darker and geared toward older teens, but Michelle’s vivid imagery and her ability to bring out the passionate emotion in her characters still shines through. OK, enough with the gushing – I’ll save the rest for my review. 🙂

Don’t Fear the Reaper by Michelle Muto

First Chapter

There was no fear in me as the man bent forward, his face was inches from mine. He was my father’s age, and yet strangely older. His eyes were so… blue, almost iridescent. The irises were rimmed in a fine line of black, and the creases etched at the corners reminded me of sunbeams as he gave me a weak smile. The oddly dressed paramedic. A warm hand reached into the water and cradled mine. My fingers clutched his. I sighed, feeling myself floating, drifting. Light – high and intense exploded before me. No! Too much. Too much! I shuddered and labored to catch my breath, but it wouldn’t come.

This passage is near the end of the first chapter. Here’s the book description from goodreads:

Grief-stricken by the murder of her twin, Keely Morrison is convinced suicide is her ticket to eternal peace and a chance to reunite with her sister. When Keely succeeds in taking her own life, she discovers death isn’t at all what she expected. Instead, she’s trapped in a netherworld on Earth and her only hope for reconnecting with her sister and navigating the afterlife is a bounty-hunting reaper and a sardonic, possibly unscrupulous, demon. But when the demon offers Keely her greatest temptation—revenge on her sister’s murderer—she must uncover his motives and determine who she can trust. Because, as Keely soon learns, both reaper and demon are keeping secrets and she fears the worst is true—that her every decision will change how, and with whom, she spends eternity.

Check out my reviews of both Don’t Fear the Reaper and The Book of Lost Souls on my Current Reviews page. You should add both books to your TBR shelves. 🙂

Banned Books Week 2011

Have you ever had something get under your skin and bug you so much that you just can’t get it out of your head? Well that’s where I am right now. I’ve been hopping around blogs today looking at sites that are supporting Banned Books Week. It seems the more I look the more distressed I get.

I can’t really put my finger on it exactly. So many things about this aspect boggle my mind. I don’t want to step on any toes, insult anyone for their beliefs or in any way tell any parent how to raise their child. But wait, isn’t that the point?

I decided what my children were ready to read. If they could give me a valid reason why they wanted to read it, I listened. To be honest, they never really wanted to read anything that I didn’t think they were ready for. I also considered it a plus when they wanted to read something that was considered above their grade level. Maybe I’m a bad parent, but I just never got the concept of keeping my kids in the dark about a particular subject just because they weren’t at the right age according to everyone else. I knew my kids better than anyone, as every parent usually does. I figured if they were asking and they were curious I’d rather have a handle on how they were getting the info than to wonder about it.

I’ve mentioned before my confusion over friends of my kids not being able to read Harry Potter, James and the Giant Peach and scores of other books. Those parents were entitled to their opinion then just as all parents are entitled to their opinion now. Just don’t make me or my kids feel bad for having a different opinion. I’m not, nor have I ever been a perfect parent, but I have always been a firm believer in picking my battles. Reading was at the bottom of my battle list. My kids love of reading has actually introduced me to some great books that I would never have considered otherwise. In a time when teachers and parents are trying to get kids to open books, why in the world would I say “but not that one?”

Does this mean that I think that every book should be available to everyone? Absolutely not. The same books that are on high school shelves shouldn’t be available to elementary or in some cases even middle school students. That doesn’t mean that they should be banned. It just means that the choice about whether or not a child reads those books should be left to the parents.

During this week, take time to search out and look over one of the many lists of banned or challenged books. The American Library Association is a good place to start. If you’re like me, you’ll be amazed at some of the books you’ll find there. I’m sure that there is at least one on the list that you’ve read and loved. If not, pick one and read it. You can also hop around the Banned Books Week Hop. There are 234 participants with great giveaways and some insightful posts. Finally, spread the word. To me it’s too important not to talk about.

Follow Friday (9-23-11)

Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee’s View and  Alison Can Read.

This week’s question is:

Do you have a favorite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep on revisiting it?

Do I have to pick just one? I have several series that I have read more than once. Parajunkee confessed that Twilight was one of hers and I have to admit that I’ve read it more than once too. I love going back and getting lost in the worlds and words that swept me away before. Almost always I find something that I didn’t notice before or clues that were left make more sense the second time around. I also go back and reread when a new book in a series comes out. Makes it fun when the author is 9 books into a series, but hey, I’m nothing if not committed. 🙂

Some of the series I have read more than once are Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse books, J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood books and James Patterson’s Alex Cross series. I know that I will read The Mortal Instruments series again before The City of Lost Souls release and I’ve already committed myself to read Clockwork Angel before Clockwork Prince’s Release. (Does it count if it’s only one book because I’ve already reread Clockwork Angel?)

If pinned down I can explain the reasoning behind each reread. The Sookie Stackhouse reread came before a new release so I needed to refresh my memory about everything that came before. The Black Dagger Brotherhood reread happened because I was forced to rush through it the first time in a failed attempt to compete with an insanely competitive professional reading demon (soulswallo @ Reading the Paranormal.) I’m just being a responsible reader, right? If I’m totally honest though each reread happened because I fell in love with the worlds and the characters the first time and hanging out with them just once wasn’t nearly enough. So far I’ve never been disappointed by my return.

How Many of These Top 100 YA Books Have You Read?

So I “borrowed” this list from The Bookish Brunette and she “borrowed” it from  Pretty Deadly Reviews who saw this at Starry Sky Books who originally “borrowed” it from somewhere else, and…. well, you get the picture – the list has been around. There are some books on the list I don’t even recognize and some I really do want to read. If nothing else, I thought maybe I could pick up a few more good reads from the list. I thought it would be fun to share, so here it is. YA isn’t the only genre I read from, but I do enjoy it. I’ve marked the books that I’ve read in RED.

Teaser Tuesday (9-20-11)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

You never know what’s going to come up on Teaser Tuesday, and I’m not just talking about browsing around from blog to blog. I had a totally different idea about what I was going to feature today, but plans changed. Just another normal week!

My Teaser this week is from Jason Lett’s Inevitable Trilogy. This is from the second book, Impossible. I’ve read all three, but I’ve only reviewed the last because I wasn’t actively reviewing books until I read the last book. I really need to rectify that and I thought a good way to start would be to feature one of Jason’s books here. I don’t want to give anything away from either the first book or the last, so this is a pretty early teaser from the first chapter.

Impossible by Jason Letts

Then there was me. Shocked and horrified, I stared at Nathan through blue eyes that weren’t mine from behind a face that didn’t belong to me. I had a name, Apoxy, which was given to me by chance and still never seemed to fit right. But now, instead of being the one who tugged on the reigns of fate across ten trillion Earths outside of time from my home of Infinity, I was no different than any other person. This body was all I had. Well, that and Nathan, but the happy future together we imagined had just vanished before our eyes.

Pretty intense, huh? It stays pretty much on that track. You can read my review of the final book in the series on my Current Reviews page along with some other books by Jason. Stay tuned for reviews of the other two books in this trilogy. Enjoy!

Book Blogger Hop (9-16-11)

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and runs from Friday to Sunday. This week’s question is:

“As a book blogger, how do you introduce yourself in your profile?”

It’s been a while since I have participated in Book Blogger Hop so I figured I’d give this question a try. Actually, it was a great question, because it prompted me to work on an “About Me” page. I kind of just stumbled into blogging. I started doing reviews and began interacting with authors and other reviewers and realized that this was something I could actually do. When I started the blog my bio was an introduction on a post. After reading this question, I realized that that post was now buried back about 5 pages and no one was going to find it. It’s not earth shattering or enlightening, but it does let people know why I decided to start book blogging and pretty much what they can expect. Since I’m still very new to this, my blog keeps evolving. I’m sure I will add to my profile and hopefully start doing a little bit more than just reviewing books so people can get to know me a little better.

Teaser Tuesday (9-13-11)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

Ok, so I may have mentioned the fact that I like to reread books – in passing anyway. So while waiting for some new reads to grace my mailbox I decided to look through my Kindle to see what sparked my interest. I had some new reads there too, but when I got to the end of my library Amanda Hocking’s My Blood Approves caught my I and I thought “why not?” I know some of you out there absolutely hate love triangles and if you happen to be one of those people, save yourself some tension and don’t read these books. Right now there are 4 with a 5th that is to be released in early 2012 (I keep hoping the date will change, but so far it’s still next year.) The before mentioned love triangle is between Alice, Jack and his brother Peter. This scene is the first time that Alice meets Peter.

My Blood Approves

by Amanda Hocking (28% on Kindle)

“Hello,” Peter sighed and finally lowered his book.

At first, I could only see his eyes. They were an intoxicating shade of green and captivated me. His thick, chestnut hair landed just above his shoulders, and he tucked it behind his ears. His jaw tightened.

He breathed in sharply, and his lips parted. It wasn’t his intention, but there was something so seductive about that. He was stunningly perfect in a way that made him almost painful to look at.

I know, I know, this was not 2 sentences. One day I will be able to get my point across and still follow the rules. But honestly, which part of this scene would you have deleted? You’re just lucky I didn’t keep going. 🙂

Crave – Fallen Angel Series – Book 2 – J.R. WardPg. 124

“You’re trembling and you’ve got a death grip on your neck right now. So you tell me what you think I’m capable of.” As she swallowed hard, he figured the wake-up call was way overdue – except he felt like a thug putting on the show of aggression. “I know you’re into the savior thing. But I’m not the kind of charity case that’ll feed your soul. Trust me.”

J.R. Ward has me hooked again! What can I say, I have to have something to tide me over until Lover Unleashed comes out in paper back. 🙂 Gotta love those tormented souls that J.R. Ward treats us too consistently and, as you can see from the quote, Isaac is no exception.

Follow Friday (9-2-11)

Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee’s View and  Alison Can Read.

This week’s question is:

If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

Parajunkee warned everyone that this question has the potential to be a spoiler fest. Having said that, I’m going to try my best not to ruin this for anyone.

When I first read this week’s question I thought I would just skip it. I have always said that the way a book ends is the author’s prerogative, we’re just along for the ride. Actually, I have a post devoted to just that topic [Matchmaker, Matchmaker] so why on earth would I go back on my own statements and try to change the way an author ended their personal work? What can I say, no one is perfect. 🙂

Anyway, it’s not that I really want the ending to change in this book. I can live with the ending and I do trust the author to bring the characters around in the continuation of his series, but the ending of the first book tore the characters (and this reader) totally apart. Oh yeah, which book am I talking about? The Blood that Bonds by Christopher Buecheler.

About The Blood That Bonds

Two is trapped: hooked on heroin, held as property, forced to sell her body to feed the addiction. Time brings her ever closer to what seems an inevitable death and Two waits, uncaring, longing only for the next fix.That’s when Theroen arrives, beckoning to his Ferrari and grinning his inscrutable grin. He is handsome. Confident. Eager to help lift her out of the life that’s grinding her down.

The only problem? Theroen is a vampire.

His blood can cure her addiction, grant her powers she has never had, change her forever into something greater than she was. But when he sinks his teeth into her neck, Theroen also thrusts Two into a world of danger, violence, madness and despair. The powerful, twisted elder Abraham will use her arrival to shatter the uneasy peace that exists in his mansion, bringing an end to the dark game he has been playing for centuries.

Okay, so you can tell from the description that this books isn’t going to be all “happy, happy, joy, joy” so what did I expect? Two started out about as low as you can get. She finally gets a shot at freedom from everything that has kept her trapped. She even finds some happiness. You follow the story and she ends up in the final chapters almost as low as when the book started. So if I could rewrite the ending, I guess I would have given Two a little less pain – if only because it was too much for me. Somehow though I think Two is strong enough to get past it all. How I’m not sure, but that’s why I try to trust the author. Even though I am a trusting sort when it comes to reading, this ending really did bother me. How much? As anyone who has read any of my posts or reviews has noticed – I am an avid re-reader. When I found out that it was almost time for Blood Hunt’s release I pulled up my copy of The Blood that Bonds so it would be fresh in my mind when I started the next book. Guess what? I stopped before I got to the end. I just couldn’t go through that with Two again.

Now that I’m feeling totally guilty, I want to make it perfectly clear to everyone, including Christopher Buecheler, that I am not bashing The Blood that Bonds. If that were true, I never would have bought Blood Hunt which is my current read. I just wish that Two would have been able to be in a happier place than she ended up in The Blood that Bonds. I, however, didn’t write the book, so I’m at Christopher Buecheler’s mercy right now. Don’t let my opinion of the ending of The Blood that Bonds sway you from reading it. I really did like this book. There’s a link for a free download on the website, so check it out and if you do, let me know how you feel about where Two ends up at the end. Maybe it’s just me. 🙂

UPDATE:

Just in case anyone’s curious. I finished Blood Hunt and posted my review on goodreads and amazon. Check it out to see if my trust in Christopher Buecheler was warranted. Let’s just say, sometimes it pays to be patient. 😉
