City of Bones: The Movie

Saturday, August 31, 2013 Geraldine 0 Comments



As everyone knows, I'm a big big BIG fan of Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter World. So, to celebrate the end of BLOCK exams today, a couple of friends and I went to go see the 'City of Bones'!!! I literally have no idea what the hell to write about... Like all book-to-movie adaptions, it WASN'T AS GOOD AS THE BOOK ITSELF! Despite this, this was definitely really good.

I walked into the cinema having such low expectations, from the reviews by critics. One lesson I've learnt now: NEVER trust the critics. They don't understand books!!! However, there were a one or two things which I guess they picked up on, which I also agreed was pretty bad...

One thing that really let me down with this movie was the music playing at unnecessary times, such as the greenhouse scene (yeah, you know what I'm talking about <3 ). The greenhouse scene had music playing that really did not suit the scene.

In addition to loving Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter world, I also quite like classical music *guilty blush*. The nod to Bach was pretty unique, and I loved how it had a whole purpose to it in the end. 

The whole Shadowhunter world just bloomed before my eyes, and I just wanted to travel to Brooklyn right there and then, to the Institute and everything! Magnus's party... MAGNUS HIMSELF :P Everything was beautiful, and they were quite true to the book, even thought there were a few plot points that they missed.

A sad thing is though.... I'm planning to reread the books again, and I think I might just imagine Jace as Jamie Campbell Bower.... I like my imagination!!! Oh yeah, I keep mixing them up, because Jace's name was derived from his 'name', which is 'Jonathan Christopher Wayland', right? And you have Jamie Campbell Bower. Do you see the similarity in the names??? J.C. I swear, they must have picked Jamie Campbell Bower because of this! Though I really wanted Alex Pettyfer for the role of Jace, I think that Jamie Campbell Bower really made the role of Jace his, and I can't even imagine Alex Pettyfer as Jace! 
Everything happened so fast! That's a good and bad thing I suppose.... Being a fan, I would expect the movie to be perfectly detailed and all, but there obviously isn't enough time for that :( But at the same time, it was 130 minutes~ Which is plenty long, but it went by so quickly!

You know what's also the best? Seeing the movie trailers for two other books that have been turned into movies, while in the cinema!!! 'Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters' as well as 'Catching Fire' were played before 'City of Bones' started and my friends and I were squealing and fangirling~~~

I'm still confused... But overall, this movie is perfect for anyone who hasn't read the books, I think, and it really made the whole Shadowhunter world come to life for me. Aside from some unnecessary music and cheesy lines, this movie was spectacular, a 4 star movie for me~ 

By the way, since this is a book blog, I'm also looking forward to the release of 'The Shadowhunter's Codex' so much! October is going to be a magical month, I just can't wait, so many TV shows to watch, books to read, my life is going to be full of rainbows, unicorns and everything magical~~~

Keep reading and loving books (as well as the movie adaptions of them),

COVER REVEAL: 40 Nights by Stephanie Parent

Friday, August 30, 2013 Geraldine 0 Comments

Forty Nights (Neima's Ark #2)
Release Date: September 2013
Cover Designed by: 
Najla Qamber Designs

Summary from Goodreads:
Neima, her family, and her grandfather Noah have found themselves trapped aboard an ark as a great flood destroys all life in the world. As their time aboard the ark lengthens, food begins to run out, wild animals grow restless, and family tensions become as much of a threat as the flood outside. In the second and final installment of Neima’s Ark, the stakes are higher, the conflicts are greater, and Neima finds herself facing a choice as impossible as the destruction all around her.

Forty Nights is a continuation of the story begun in Forty Days, and it’s recommended that you read Forty Days first for the best experience. Forty Nights does, however, contain a character guide to refresh readers’ memories. The Neima’s Ark series is a historical, feminist reimagining of the story of Noah’s Ark rather than a religiously oriented one, and the novels are best suited for readers who are comfortable with new interpretations of biblical stories.

Interview with Aurora Titon: Apollo Academy Book Tour~

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 Geraldine 0 Comments


Welcome to my stop on The Apollo Academy's Blog Tour!

Aurora Titon is the daughter of Collin Titon, the man who brought about Titon Technologies! In addition to that, she also now has the record of being the first female pilot from the Academy! 
We've managed to get her alone for a couple of minutes to talk about recent events.

Hi there, Aurora. We were wondering if you could spare 5 minutes to talk to us about recent events?
You know I don't really speak to the media often, but since you're not worst reporter ever, aka Veronica Harley, I think I can spare a few minutes. *shaky smile* Give me your best shot!

Firstly, I understand you hold the record of being the first female pilot being trained at the Academy!
Yeah, wow. Sometimes that's still hard to believe. I seriously hope that's not the case for long,  it's a shame I'm the only one in the flight program.

What's your daily timetable like? Do you spend all day flying, or is there some theory involved behind being a pilot?
My entire life right now is on a schedule. The Apollo Academy sure knows how to keep us busy! Let's see, I usually wake up and grab a quick breakfast with Kaylana. Then I'm off to swim practice or whatever form of physical torture Coach Harris has come up with for the day. After that, I have Astronomy, Flight Physiology, Interplanetary Studies, and usually some sort of group training. A quick break for lunch, then it's off to my flight lessons, which are definitely my favourite part of the day. *takes deep breath* Phew. I'm exhausted just talking about it!

I understand you're the hardworking type. After all, your friend Kaylana had to drag you to a party the night before your initiation into the Academy!
HaHa. Yeah, that was a memorable night.
What do you do then, in your spare time, when you're not studying or in flight-simulators?
This doesn't happen very often, but when it does I'm usually trying to keep up with one of Kaylana's devilish plans.*laughs* That girl is trouble!  

With your father being so famous, how do you cope with the fame?
I don't think it's something I've handled very well so far, to be honest. I used to think ignoring it all was the best approach, but I'm not so sure anymore. . .

Will you ever consider following in your father's footsteps and leading Titon Technologies?
Hell no. *looks up and points at sky* I plan to live up there.

Lastly, for a bit of fun. Can you tell us anything... interesting that happened while you were in the Academy? Little tidbits and gossip, you know!
*nervous laugh* I think most of the gossip at the Academy isn't such a secret anymore. It's already being talked about. Like everywhere. Between the cadet arrest, the reveal of Sky's hidden past, and my sabotaged training, I'm hoping we're all out of secrets...

Thanks so much for this interview! It was a pleasure talking with such an accomplished young woman like yourself. We look forward to more new about your exploits!
Wow. This wasn't so bad. Thank you for having me. Maybe I'll do this more often?



THE APOLLO ACADEMY: 
As the heiress to Titon Technologies, eighteen-year-old Aurora Titon can have whatever she wants—clothes, expensive gadgets, anything money can buy. All she really wants is to escape her pampered, paparazzi-prone life for the stars. Becoming the first female pilot to train as an astronaut for the Apollo Academy is exactly the chance for which she has been waiting. Everything would be perfect if it weren't for her unreciprocated crush on a fellow student, the sexy astronaut bent on making her life hell, and the fact that someone keeps trying to kill her.

The first in a four book new adult science fiction series, The Apollo Academy, is an action packed story of love, discovery, and survival.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

The Breakdown


Excellent:
  • Genealogy
  • Concept
Nasty: 
  • Dragged out 
  • The dialogue
  • Characters 2D
    Rating: 4 stars

    The Review

    Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever. 
    Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them. 
    In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

    The first time I heard of Beautiful Creatures was really when the movie came out. I'd planned to see it, but then I found out it was formerly a book. Being me, I just had to read the book before seeing the movie!

    Beautiful Creatures felt a bit too dragged out, especially at the end. The first half of the book was pretty interesting, but then the last half of the book just felt incessantly drawn out. This could be for tension, or whatnot, but it only decreased the quality of the writing and made me bored. 

    The dialogue was one of the irritating things about this book. Garcia and Stohl keeps reminding that this is a book set in the South, by having the characters speak in a Southern accent. At the start, I kept getting confused when the characters say 'a' instead of 'of'. I realised that this was supposed to be Garcia and Stohl's attempt at giving the characters a voice and making it easy for the reader to hear the Southern accent. 

    Another thing that rubbed me the wrong way with this book, was the two dimensional qualities of the characters. Lena was constantly very angsty, because of school, her family, etc. The same goes with Ethan. He was very tenacious, and that was pretty much the only side that was seen of him, since this book was all about him and Lena. There should have been more scenes that depicted Ethan and Lena separate from each other, so that their characters could be fully fleshed out.

    The genealogy aspect of the book was very interesting for me. Genealogy is always interested, as evidenced by Cassandra Clare's incessant teasing of her readers with the family lines of her characters. Although there wasn't much of a mystery surrounding the genealogy of the Ethan or Lena

    The concept was interesting as well, with Casters and all. There was this whole thing of Light and Dark, and prophecies and curses, and that added a lot to the increasing tension and climax. As everything was revealed it slowly got more exciting and interesting. The different types of Casters were very unique, and it was amazing hearing about their abilities. 

    Beautiful Creatures enchanted me, much more than any book has been able to in the past 3 months, maybe even the past 6 months! Although the movie has an average rating, I'm going to see it~ If the movie was average, then it's definite that this book has a 4 star rating from me, because, it's a universal truth, that books are ALWAYS better than the movie.

    Keep reading and loving books,

    August 20: Top Ten Things That Make Your Life As A Reader/Book Blogger Easier

    Wednesday, August 21, 2013 Geraldine 3 Comments

    Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish, and, by golly, when I found out about it, I decided to join in on the fun! Every Tuesday, a new topic comes out for bloggers to post a list about. This week, it's the  Top Ten Things That Make Your Life As A Reader/Book Blogger Easier。

    There are just some things that I, as a blogger, could not live without. There are also things that I, as a reader could never live without as well. Here's a list of them; I'm not very needy, so it's a small list!
    1. My laptop- Without this little beauty, I'd never be able to blog! After all, who likes typing on their phone? Way too hard. And I read quite a few books on my laptop too, as it's a much lighter load for me since my bag is heavy enough as it is everyday.
    2. Goodreads- As a book blogger, I find Goodreads immensely gratifying. It's much too hard to type up a blurb from the back of a book, and using Goodreads, I can just copy and paste. Plus, the reviews on Goodreads also help decide what book I should read next :D
    3. Music- I swear, music is such a good motivator for me to blog. I love music! And it's great for reading too, since I hate reading in silence. It's much too eerie without having something blaring on in the background.
    4. Blogs- Other book blogs are so fun to go around in and looking at. They're extremely good at helping me procrastinate, and they help keep me sane when blogging and writing reviews gets a bit mundane.
    5. Paper books- Though they are heavy to carry around with you, I love reading with books. There's the guarantee that my eyes won't get as sore as they will on my laptop, the smell of it and most importantly, it feels real! I'm not sure, but I also think I rate books so much harsher when I read them on my laptop in comparison to reading them on paper...
    6. Time- If I have plenty of time, I would never get around to blogging. If I don't have enough time, I also won't blog, because I need to 'prioritise'. Urgh! So usually, I need to be given just the right amount of time, so that I can feel pressured and work, in addition to not feeling to stressed!
    What are things that make your life as a blogger or a reader easier? Comment below! I'll need to try some things out!

    Keep reading and loving books,

    Earth Girl by Janet Edwards

    Saturday, August 17, 2013 Geraldine 0 Comments

    The Breakdown


    Excellent:
    • Concept/idea
    • World building
    • Character development
    Nasty: 
    • New unnescessary terminology- e.g. amaz for amazing. 
    • Resolution- typical conclusion, no cliffhanger
      Rating: 4  stars

      The Review


      A sensational YA science fiction debut from an exciting new British author. Jarra is stuck on Earth while the rest of humanity portals around the universe. But can she prove to the norms that she’s more than just an Earth Girl? 
      2788. Only the handicapped live on Earth. While everyone else portals between worlds, 18-year-old Jarra is among the one in a thousand people born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Sent to Earth at birth to save her life, she has been abandoned by her parents. She can’t travel to other worlds, but she can watch their vids, and she knows all the jokes they make. She’s an ‘ape’, a ‘throwback’, but this is one ape girl who won’t give in. 
      Jarra invents a fake background for herself – as a normal child of Military parents – and joins a class of norms that is on Earth to excavate the ruins of the old cities. When an ancient skyscraper collapses, burying another research team, Jarra’s role in their rescue puts her in the spotlight. No hiding at back of class now. To make life more complicated, she finds herself falling in love with one of her classmates – a norm from another planet. Somehow, she has to keep the deception going. 
      A freak solar storm strikes the atmosphere, and the class is ordered to portal off-world for safety – no problem for a real child of military parents, but fatal for Jarra. The storm is so bad that the crews of the orbiting solar arrays have to escape to planet below: the first landing from space in 600 years. And one is on collision course with their shelter.

      I cannot express how good this book was! The plot, the world-building, the characters all stood out for me.
      Though the beginning of this debut novel by Janet Edwards was a bit slow, by the time I got past the first 50 pages, I was hooked and no one could stop me from devouring it.

      The world-building of Earth, in 2788, was really solid. I could pretty much imagine Earth as how Edwards described it to be, as well as New York Fringe and Main. There was a history behind how Earth had become so deserted and left alone, only for the 'apes'. It wasn't just a thing that could happen overnight.

      The character development in Earth Girl was just phenomenal. It wasn't only Jarra, the main character that evolved, but also the rest of the characters, like Krath and Playdon. Jarra initially turned me off with how much anger she had towards the exos, but gradually, I grew to like her, as her anger dwindled down more and more. Krath is another example of excellent character development. He changes so much from how he originally was at the start of the novel.

      Like any good book, there were flaws in Earth Girl. But they were extremely minor, and it's only because I'm nitpicky, that I noticed them. For one thing, I did get a bit irritated by the new slang being thrown around, like 'amaz' for 'amazing'. When I found out that Earth Girl was the first book of a series, I then also thought that the ending was too tied-up for the ending of a first book. A first book, for me, usually has to have a few loopholes left, to egg me to read the next book.

      Earth Girl is a book that reminds people of their love of reading. It made me realise how much of a reading slump I have been in for the past year! It is a book I am currently recommending to all my friends who love dystopias. A 4-star book, it really revived reading back for me.

      Keep reading and loving books,

      An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

      Wednesday, August 14, 2013 Geraldine 0 Comments

      The Breakdown

      Excellent: 
      • The maths in the book
      • Colin's quirky behaviour 
      Nasty:
      • Most of the characters
      Interesting: The anagramming was fun and interesting
      Rating: 2 stars

      The Review

      Colin Singleton likes girls named Katherine, who have dumped him 19 times. On a road trip, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has $10K, a trailing bloodthirsty hog, and a best friend riding shotgun. His Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability should predict any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally get him the girl.

      I've only read two John Green novels in the past; Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars. These books were so extremely good, that I convinced myself that this book would be too. Sadly it wasn't to be, for me. The first tip-off was when I read that Colin had dated 19 girls named Katherine.

      Meet Colin. He's a 17 year old prodigy (mind you, prodigy is NOT to be confused with genius) who has been dumped 19 times. By girls named Katherine. He's had the last straw with Katherine the 19th, and is off on a road trip with his friend, Hassam. Before he knows it, he's Gutshot working over the summer with a girl called Lindsey, all while developing his Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability. It should be a good summer.... right?

      This book just didn't have the same sweetness and heartfeltness that all other John Green books have. I guess what I'm really trying to say, is that The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska were so good, mainly because they had themes that were full of importance. An Abundance of Katherines just was a book about a guy trying to get over a girl called Katherine, the 19th girl called Katherine that he had dated, and trying to find a place in the world. 

      The main problem, all throughout this book, was that I disliked quite a few characters. They were mostly bland and unflavoursome. Take Colin for example. He had no personality and was very self-obsessed. It was painful, having to hear about his life, which centered around being a prodigy and Katherines. It felt like there was nothing else in his life. However, his behaviour at certain times, and h Hassam was the only character I enjoyed. He made me laugh at times, and he was quite multi-layered, in my opinion. His joking is what hides his hurt when he has been hurt. 

      The plot was also rather obvious. It was obvious that Colin would break the cycle, stop dating a Katherine and start dating a girl with another name. It was obvious that TOC was going to cheat. Everything was really quite obvious. Even the realisation that Colin finally comes to at the end was obvious to the reader. 

      However, despite its flaws, I really loved the mathematics involved in this book. As a self-professed lover of books, I'm also not afraid to admit that I love maths as well. Maths is definitive, and it's wonderful how solid, how fascinating it is! Reading through the maths in this book really piqued my interest, and I found it to be a highly delightful part of this novel.

      In the end, I had large problems with the characters and the plot, which isn't a good thing. However, the maths more than made up for it, and Colin's quirky behaviour did pique my interest, which is why I'd rate this book a 2 stars out of 5.

      Keep reading and loving books,

      Geraldine

      P.S. Here's a really good site (it's John Green's site; it's not just good, its bloody brilliant!) that has all of Green's responses to questions about books he's written. It is what partially motivated me to finish An Abundance of Katherines.

      Prophecy of the Most Beautiful by Diantha Jones

      Sunday, August 11, 2013 Geraldine 0 Comments


      She has a destiny so great that even the gods fear her.

      Constant hallucinations and the frequent conversations with the voices in her head, have earned eighteen-year-old Chloe Clever the not-so-coveted title of "Whack Job" in her home town of Adel, Georgia. With the onslaught of prescription medications and therapists threatening to push her over the edge, she wishes for a life far away from the one she has, a life where she is destined to be more than the butt of everyone's jokes and mockery.

      Be careful what you wish for has never rung more true.

      After living through an attack from her worst nightmare, she awakens to find herself far from home, surrounded by glorious riches and servants…and a few demigods who enjoy killing things. Upon learning that her favorite rockstar is an Olympian god, she is thrust into her new life as the Oracle of Delphi, the prophesier of the future, and the great Pythia that the gods have been anxiously awaiting to arrive for centuries. Setting out to fulfill the prophecy she has been given and to keep her family safe from a demigod Princess that wants her dead, Chloe learns of how great she is to become, all the while fighting mythical monsters, evading divine assassins and trying to outwit the ever-cunning Greek gods who harbor secrets of their own. In the hopes of discovering the Most Beautiful and the truth of her destiny, she strives to uncover the mysteries of the demigod Prince who has sworn to protect her with his life…and threatens to win her heart in the process.

      This book is great for any lover of Greek mythology, whether or not they are new to the genre or not. Jones pushes readers new to Greek mythology to learn more and know more about Greek mythology. For seasoned readers, Jones also adds twists to Prophecy of the Most Beautiful and finds new things to introduce, as well as twisting up some Greek myths to add excitement. 

      Can I also cry over the cover? It's so pretty and striking! I don't usually like covers with people on it (it ruins my imagination), but this cover is just so ethereal and gripping, with the words "The Future is now" inscribed on it. 

      The plot was well-paced and interesting. The first few pages were difficult to get through though. This was mainly because I wanted to get to the Greek mythology parts. Thankfully, Jones does a fantastic job in setting the scene with the first few pages, as well as establishing Chloe's personality and her background.

      Chloe was a rounded and interesting character. Unlike other books, Chloe was an individual character, and she didn't let anything sway her. She had a real background and she didn't drop everything to be part of this new world that she had never known all her life. 

      This book is worthy of a 4 stars out of 5.  It captivated my attention, was really interesting and it was a whole new world for me to explore. It's perfect for any reader, be they new or seasoned towards Greek mythology!

      Keep reading and loving books,

      August 6: Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels

      Tuesday, August 06, 2013 Geraldine 14 Comments


      Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish, and, by golly, when I found out about it, I decided to join in on the fun! Every Tuesday, a new topic comes out for bloggers to post a list about. This week, it's the Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels。

      I don't usually wish books had sequels if there wasn't a need for one, mainly because I'm either sick of that book/world or because the author has ended it beautifully. So any books on this list are either spectacular and I want more, or the ending of these books were so horrible, that I want a sequel just so that there will be a better ending.
      1. The Inheritance series- I felt that Christopher Paolini should have written more, I wanted a more finite ending.
      2. The Hunger Games series- Well, I just want to know what happens to all the others. Gale, Annie, Haymitch, etc. WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM???? *breaks down sobbing
      3. Anne of Green Gables- Nothing was bad about the ending of this book, I just want more stories. And yes, there are sequels (and multiple of them) to this book, but I want more of Anne's childhood, more of her misdemeanours and the like. They were what made Anne so truly special.
      4. Anna and the French Kiss- Lola and the Boy Next Door is not a sequel to this!!!! I want more on Anna and St. Clair!
      5. Harry Potter- J.K. Rowling wrapped everything up pretty well, but I still have a hungering for more on Harry's universe, on the magical world. I wouldn't mind if she wrote about other characters, but as long as it's set in the wizarding world.... I'm set. 
      6. Poison- This book was really magical and I loved the characters in it!!! It was a fantastic concept, and it was really pulling, the whole world being so beautifully created.
      Huh, this topic was surprisingly hard... I think I missed a few books! Got any ideas what I may have missed out on???? Comment below!!!

      Keep reading and loving books,

      Character Interview with Chloe Smart from the Oracle of Delphi series!

      Thursday, August 01, 2013 Geraldine 0 Comments



      Hi there, Pythia! You’re live on the Olympus Herald.
      Oh, just call me Chloe, Pythia sounds so formal!
      So, first off, to anyone who doesn’t know you, how would you describe yourself?
      Hmm. Well I'm a bit an interrogator (I ask a lot of questions) and sometimes I speak when it would be so much better for me if I kept quiet. I love my family and my friends and I would give my life to save theirs in a heartbeat. I've always loved history, but now that I'm drowning in it, I kind of wish my best subject in school had been math.

      Before your adventures, you were pretty much just an ordinary girl. Do you think you’ve changed since then?
      Definitely. I mean, I had no choice. I had to accept this life. I had to accept this fate. That meant becoming a different person. A better person. *smiles*  I'm glad this is my life now.

      How did you cope with the bullying before you met Strafford, Ace, and everyone else?
      I didn't really. I wasn't equipped to. But I couldn't help my hallucinations...or the results of them. At least I know why now.

      If you weren’t a mortal, what would you be? Would you be a demigod? And if so, the daughter of who?
      That's an easy question. I actually despise the gods and thank the Fates everyday that I'm not one of their kids. So if I had to choose, I'd probably be a satyr. At least they're cute and have cool names.

      Do you think you could cope with the pressures of being a demigod?
      If I can be the Oracle, I could be a demigod. But then again, the way the gods treat their children disgusts me. Parents should love and take care of their kids, not use and manipulate them. *sighs* This is just a really sensitive subject for me, but you already know that.

      Now, I know you probably have to dash, but one last question. How would you describe the relationship between you and Strafford?
      *grins* Hot and hotter! But honestly, Strafford isn't just gorgeous, he's sweet and has a huge heart, despite what he says. I love him and trust him with my life. We don't just belong together. We're eternal.

      It’s been so good having you, Chloe, here! Ladies and gentlemen, the Oracle Pythia!
