Christina's Book Nook

College kid, who still finds time in-between all those credits to pull out a book and read instead of studying. I work as a tutor for my college while taking classes there; currently P1 going for my PhD in Pharmacy.

Currently reading

Perfect Ruin (Internment Chronicles, #1)
Lauren DeStefano
A Game of Thrones
George R.R. Martin
Beta
Rachel Cohn
Scarlet
Marissa Meyer

The Testing Guide (The Testing, #0.5)

The Testing Guide - Joelle Charbonneau It was just over 10 pages. I'm not really picky about novellas, but that was not what I was hoping for when I hear it would focus on Zeen.
I think I wanted too much.
SPOILER ALERT!

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)

Allegiant  - Veronica Roth 3.5 Stars
So many mixed feelings on this one.
I enjoyed that it was different from the normal happily ever after, but that almost made it hurt more.
Also bothered by the fact that so many characters died for no reason. Some we didn't really know, but it was still a name tossed around for sometime. Lots of unnecessary death. : /

Crewel - Gennifer Albin Definitely picked up towards the end. Will be reading the next book now that I've gotten interested in what is going on. At first I wasn't sure I could finish it since other things were keeping me occupied.
Find You in the Dark (Find You in the Dark, #1) - A. Meredith Walters This book was a miss for me, which i was fairly bummed about after reading all the good reviews. I obviously did not enjoy this book as much as others on this site. Since I'm studying some of this material at school, I'm always somewhat judgmental when disorders are brought up in books. Yes it was well researched, and yes some if the actions were correct, but it was an overall flop. I didn't connect with the characters and the secondary ones were more enjoyable than the mains ones.
The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window - Kirsty Moseley I don't particularly recommend this book. Was on a reading spree with one main topic.
Flawed - Kate Avelynn 2.5 Stars My recommendation could not have been more off when this book was being sold to me as 'Forbidden' by Tabitha Suzuma. It did not follow the same plot, the relationship was not comparable, and I felt a little cheated about what I got into.
Opal - Jennifer L. Armentrout Second half far surpassed the first bit. Will buy this after my exam tomorrow and read it on the plane home. At least I know something on my Nook will keep me entertained.
The Bane Chronicles  (The Bane Chronicles) - Sarah Rees Brennan,  Maureen Johnson,  Cassandra Jean, Cassandra Clare Reading this just for Magnus... the rest of the series is just going downhill.
Black City - Elizabeth  Richards Another 3.5, rounded up to GR 4 stars.I like the story, the setting, but somehow the characters just didn't fit well for me.

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin Trilogy Series #1)

Grave Mercy - Robin LaFevers 3.5 Stars for me. Will be picking up the sequel since things progressed better for me in the second half.
Destroy Me - Tahereh Mafi I LOVE WARNER! Not in that way (I'm in denial); I just think he makes a good villain. Now that it is in the open, I'm really looking forward to see this in his POV.I feel so bad for him. This book is a must read for people who want more background and a little bit of insight into the next novel.

Pandemonium (Delirium Series #2)

Pandemonium (Delirium Series #2) - Better than the first one. Waiting for book three, not so patiently.
Onyx - Jennifer L. Armentrout Far more enjoyable then the first book!First two chapters posted by the author are located here:http://www.scribd.com/doc/100303603/Onyx-Chapters-1-2-1
Sing Me to Sleep - Angela Morrison I like it enough to finish in one day. Was not enjoying the "relationship" but I needed to know the secret.Will get around to reviewing this one better when I have a few hours.
