Waiting on Wednesday

The book I chosen is (I think) a decent book. I haven't read the series yet, but I am willing to (whenever I have time)! 

Through the Ever Night
January 8th, 2013
I think this cover is AMAZING. I LOVE the colors. It just makes everything POP. Now I don't know who the guy it, though he is kinda cute ... (: 

Let's take a look at both of the books:

First book 
Second Book 
I really LOVE them! Like I said before, I really love the colors and how it makes everything POP. But to be honest, I have to go with Through The Ever Night over Under The Never Sky. I just like how they have that tint of purple and green-ish color combine. It's really pretty.

If you have any books that would fit "Waiting on Wednesday", just email us at Bookaholics.mail@gmail.com!

REVIEW: Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

Title: Silence
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Series: Hush Hush
Series #: 3
Pages: 448

The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.

Selena's POV:

I was REALLY excited to read this book after the emotional Crescendo. But I wad kind of disappointed. :(

We left off Crescendo with a major cliffhanger (Damn, I hate those!). And you start Silence with confusion. Well, at least I was confused. It took me a while until I actually caught what was happening. Something happened to Nora, and that got me confused. 

When I was reading Silence, I felt as if I was rereading Hush Hush all over again. It was a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing was that I didn't even remember what happened in Hush Hush because I read it last summer. In Silence, it kind of repeated the information, and I thought it was helpful. But the bad thing was that I felt myself kind of dragging though the first half of the book. 

But let me tell you about the parts that were intense and made me wanna throw the book across the room. I liked that Nora wasn't the same, and that she was much braver. But I didn't like that she wasn't the same because every time something we already knew came across the book, and she didn't know it, I wanted to scream and her, and tell her that she KNEW it, and didn't have to act stupid. But that wasn't her fault. (:

I also liked Patch. Period. ;) Hahaa!


I liked how Patch and Nora ACTUALLY started to get serious and all those other things. I mean, they weren't getting serious serious, but they were moving from where they use to be in Crescendo. And I liked that.

Did I mention I loved Patch, too? ;) <3

Overall, I liked this book, and this is probably my favorite series with other series too. (: If you haven't read this series yet, GET TO IT! It's AMAZING, and you won't regret reading it!

REVIEW: The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

Title: The Golden Lily
Author: Richelle Mead
Series: Bloodlines
Series #: 2
Pages: 417
Rating:  .5


Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students--children of the wealthy and powerful--carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead's breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.

Selena's POV:

I've been waiting for this book for FOREVER! Bloodlines was a HUGE cliffhanger, and I couldn't wait for The Golden Lily.
We left Bloodlines with a very surprising ending. Sydney was almost killed by a Strigoi, but was saved by her blood. We found out something shocking about Jill and Adrian. And we said Hello to familiar faces. By the end of Bloodlines, we already knew that there was going to be BIG problems in The Golden Lily.

In The Golden Lily, you find Sydney going back to her alchemist rules, and that idea of reeducation. Though Sydney is getting comfortable with her Vampire friends, that idea keeps hovering over her head. I like Sydney. I like that she's totally different from Rose, and that Sydney actually thinks before she acts, always breaking down each step. But I think Sydney is too careful. I want to see Sydney break some rules (though she kind of already did) and be care free. I'm not giving up my hopes yet, as there are 4 other books to come!

In this book, I felt as if Adrian was getting over Rose much easier, and that he looks forward to the future, and not the past. I also felt that Adrian liked a certain someone .. (: At the end of the book, it was revealed that he DID have some feelings for someone, and it broke my heart of what actually went down. But I feel like Adrian is someone else. But I think it's just how the narrator looks at him. I don't know ...

But I have to admit ... Please don't hate me ... But ... I feel myself keeping a distance from Adrian. I mean, he's a great guy, yes, but ... he's just getting in the way, and I don't like it. It's not exactly annoying, but he's just in the way. Let's just leave it to that. But I don't know why I feel like that ... Help?! :/

We also met some new people and some familiar faces. I can't say who, but boy was I happy!

Overall, I thought the book was great! But not as good as I thought it would be. There was some surprising parts, yes, but just not enough to make me fall in love. I'm thinking that book #3 (The Indigo Spell), will be the turning part and THAT will be the part where the series gets intense. That's how I felt with Vampire Academy, and I think Richelle Mead will do the same with the Bloodlines series. But I have to admit, it was much better than Bloodlines.

When I was reading The Golden Lily, I decided to start something new, and it worked out PERFECTLY. I thought I could use post-it notes and mark all my favorite parts in the book. And here's how it turned out:

Yes, those are all little post-it notes. I didn't count them, but they are all my favorite post-it notes! (: Now I will know all my favorite parts in The Golden Lily
