So another new feature I'm going to try.
What are you supposed to do you ask? Well, it's simple :)
There are two ways you can do this:
1. Listen to a song and decide what book you would link this to.
2. Read a book and find a song that fits a particular scene or larger parts of the book.
Every Friday I will try to post one of these. In these posts I'll put movies in the spotlight. But since this is a bookblog, these movies have to have something to do with books. The easiest way to do that, is by choosing movies that are based on books :) The first movie I want to spotlight is The Golden Compass based on the The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.
Titel: Parched (Parched #1) Author: Z.L. Arkadie Release date: July 22nd 2011 Edition: Kindle Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
What it says on Goodreads: “Baron Ford, he says and pauses to pick apart my expression, attempting to read how familiar I am with that name. I nod stiffly to give no indication I know exactly, who that is. I’m shocked to hear that name in this setting, at this stage of my life, the one far away from Cambridge, Massachusetts over five years later.”
I liked this book. It was a good story with a great cliffhanger at the end. Can't wait to read the next book (if there's going to be one :)). I really like Serafina, she's a great character. Kailey has an amazing family and friends and Cyrus is a great villain. I loved the Noah and Kailey/Serafina dynamics. I thought it was an amazing read with a unique look on being immortal. I really want to know what happens next so I hope I can get my hands on the next book as soon as possible ^^
It took me a while to get into the book. But about a third into the story it started to get better and really absorb me. The further I got the harder it became to put the book down. I liked the story, but I wanted more Patch ... I don't really like the whole downer that was put on Patch and Nora's relationship. I know, relationships have ups and downs in real life to, but I don't like reading about them :)
I liked the new characters that were introduced and enjoyed finding out more about the past. It explains a few things and it gives a nice twist to the story.
The ending keeps me wanting more, the perfect clifhanger. I can't wait to get my hands on Silence and find out how it all continues ^^
This was a great book. I loved that we didn't just get Sam and Grace but also other characters. I'm glad there was this plot-twist even-though it started out a bit more of the same. Luckily there are the new characters that open-up a few new story-lines. I'm really looking forward to read Forever! I really like Sam and I want to see where the Isabel story-line will go. She's become a very interesting person and I really want to find out what goes on inside her head.
