Follow Friday(41)

FF Hop

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop event hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

 This week's Question is:

Q: Activity: Favorite Literary Quote


Here are a few of my favorite literary quotes:
“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
“Books are my friends, my companions. They make me laugh and cry and find meaning in life.”
Christopher Paolini, Eragon
“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
“Harry - you're a great wizard, you know."
"I'm not as good as you," said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let go of him.
"Me!" said Hermione. "Books! And cleverness! There are more important things - friendship and bravery and - oh Harry - be careful!”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone    
“Often the greatest act of courage is admitting that one has made a mistake...Follow your hearts. Protect one another, trust one another, because, at the end of the day, all of these people want something from you, or want you to do something for them, or be something that you are not. Your own responsibility is to one another.”
Michael Scott, The Necromancer
“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”
C.S. Lewis
“We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.”

Veronica Roth, Divergent
“I wish I could freeze this moment, right here, right now and live in it forever.”

Review: Man Up!: Tales of my Delusional Self-Confidence by Ross Mathews

Man Up!: Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence
Man Up!: Tales of my Delusional Self-Confidence by Ross Mathews
Hardcover, 241 pages
Published May 7th 2013 by Grand Central Publishing
As a young kid growing up in a farm town, Ross Mathews might as well have wished for a pet unicorn or a calorie-free cookie tree to grow in his front yard. Either of those far-fetched fantasies would have been more likely to come true than his real dream: working in television in Hollywood, California. Seriously, that stuff just doesn't happen to people like Ross. But guess what. It totally did.

Now, with his first book, Ross takes us inside his journey as a super-fan, revealing the most embarrassing and hilarious moments of his small-town life and big-city adventures. From learning to swear like a hardened trucker to that time in high school when had to face down the most frightening opponent of all (his girlfriend's lady bits), Ross holds nothing back. Oh, then there's his surprisingly shady past involving the cutest pair of plus-sized women's pajama bottoms, deliciously dangerous pot butter, and embezzled sandwiches. And, of course, how he's managed to turn an obsession with pop-culture into one-on-one interactions with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Tiffani-Amber Theissen, Madonna, Michelle Kwan, and countless more without ever having a single restraining order issued against him.

Infused with Ross's trademark humor, unique voice, and total honesty, MAN UP! is a mission statement for anyone who doesn't fit the mold. His hasn't been the most traditional way to build a career in Hollywood, but Ross has somehow managed to make his mark without ever compromising who he is. He is as serious about this as he is about Golden Girls trivia: You don't need to change who you are to achieve your dreams (although there's nothing wrong with a makeover every now and then). You just need to Man Up!
My Thoughts/Review:
Ross Mathews started on the tonight show as an intern and he takes you on a journey through his life, through all of his ups and downs. This book brings a very good message to everyone that read its; to man up, to always be yourself and don't let people put you down for it. It is also laugh out loud funny.

With each new chapter came a new story that was even more funny than the last. I loved learning about Ross' life and all of his struggles that he had to go through. I have been following Ross every since he started on the tonight show. I used to follow his blog and watch all of his talkies. He is super funny and wrote a really touching uplifting fun read. I really can't wait for him to right another book. It was book that I really need to read, especially with being in a little slump in my life and what I have been reading.

The book even has a foreword by Gwyneth Paltrow, an afterword by Chelsea Handler, and a blurb by Jay Leno. What more can you ask for from a book. If you need a light, hysterical, and touching read I recommend you pick up this awesome book. You need to go out and get yourself a copy. If you buy it from Target, which I did, you can get an autographed copy. I really can't wait to see more from Ross Mathews.
Overall, I give this book:
5 out of 5 Stars

Waiting on Wednesday: Never Fade (The Darkest Minds #2) by Alexandra Bracken

For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anticipating and can't wait till it comes out to read it.
 Never Fade (The Darkest Minds, #2)
Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken
Hardcover, 512 pages
Expected publication: October 15th 2013 by Disney-Hyperion
add to goodreads
 Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flash drive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn’t recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?
Why I am Waiting:
I absolutely loved The Darkest Minds. It was one of my favorite reads of 2012. I so can not wait for this sequel. I fell in love with Ruby and all of the other characters and their story. I can not wait to see how the it continues and what happens. If you haven't read The Darkest Minds yet then you freaking need to, like now. When I saw that the title and cover of this was on Goodreads I freaked out because I really can't wait, as I am sure you can tell since I just ranted about it so much. =]

Comic Book Reviews: Saga Vol. 1, Wolverine and the X-men Vol. 1, and Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Search: Part One

Here are some review of a few of the comic books I have started to read and finished in the past few weeks.
Saga #1
Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Paperback, 48 pages
Published March 14th 2012 by Image Comics
add to goodreads


When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe.

From New York Times bestselling writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina) and critically acclaimed artist Fiona Staples (Mystery Society, North 40), Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in this sexy, subversive drama for adults.

My Thoughts/Review:
Awesome comic. Weird, amazing, Sci-fi fantasy. Can't wait to read Volume 2. It is really hard to describe this comic, you have to go read the synopsis to understand what it is all about.  Love that it was narrated by a baby. Also that it has two different sides fighting a war in space. Really loved this comic. I had such awesome writing and art. The story was so moving and interesting. I completely understand why a ton of people love it. =]
Wolverine and the X-Men, Vol. 1,
 Wolverine and the X-Men Vol. 1 by Jason Aaron, Chris Bachalo and Nick Bradshaw
Paperback, 112 pages
Published May 2nd 2012 by Marvel Comics
add to goodreads


Spinning directly out of X-MEN: SCHISM, the X-Men are split in two. In the oversized debut issue of the new ongoing flagship X-series, Wolverine takes one half of the X-Men back to Westchester to start over again with a new school, a new student body and a lot of surprises up his sleeve. But when the new Hellfire Club decides they don't like what the ol' Canucklehead has started, and decide to burn the place to the ground, will the school even outlast its first day?
My Thoughts/Review:
So glad I started this series. Awesome recommendation from Comicbookgirl19 from Youtube. Can't wait to delve more into this comic. Really like the change in art for the 4th issue. Can't wait to see where it is going to go. Love the characters like Wolverine, Iceman, Beast, Kitty Pryde and all the new X-men. Wish there was more issues in each volume though, a little expensive for only 4 issues. Wasn't so happy for the art for the first couple issues. Really hope that the art gets less cluttered as the comics go along. =] 
Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Search Part 1
Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Search: Part One by Gene Luen Yang
Paperback, 80 pages
Published April 2nd 2013 by Dark Horse Comics
add to goodreads


For years, fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra have burned with one question - what happened to Fire Lord Zuko's mother? Finding a clue at last, Zuko enlists the aid of Team Avatar - and the most unlikely ally of all - to help uncover the biggest secret of his life. Written and drawn by the creative team behind the bestselling Avatar: The Promise, Gene Luen Yang and Gurihiru, in collaboration with Avatar and Korra creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, this is the perfect companion to The Legend of Korra!
My Thoughts/Review:
Awesome continuation of this series. Love the background story about Zuko's mother. Can't wait to find out what happens to her. Loved the part about Azula and her insanity. Really loved the secrecy about Zuko's mother. Can not wait to find out how the wolf spirit plays into this. Also can't wait to find out about the repercussions of the humongous shocker at the end of this part. Really can't wait. Loved the suspense, intrigue and mystery. Overall, I have absolutely loved all of these graphic novels. =]

Overall, I gave all of these comics:
"Visually pleasing with amazing stories to go along with the art."
5 out of 5 Stars

Hope you enjoyed my quick reviews of these comics.

Let me know if the comments if you read them or if you plan on reading them. Also if you read them let me know how you liked them.

Follow Friday(40)

FF Hop

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop event hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

 This week's Question is:

Q: Have you broken up with a series? If so which one and why


There are really not a ton of series that I have broken up with. I can only think of one and another one that I might break up with but will probably continue on with. So here they are.
(Click covers for Goodreads)
The first one that I have definitely broken up with is the Sookie Stackhouse series.
Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, #1)
 I read the first and second one and just gave up on them. There are a lot of books in this series and the main reason I started reading them was because of the TV show. The TV show in my opinion was better and I heard that the books and TV show are both different so I didn't want to continue. Also one of my friends says the story sort of disappoints as it kept going along, so I didn't have the need to read them anymore.
Another series that I might not continue on with is the Tiger's Curse Series.
Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga, #1)
I just didn't like the main character towards the end of the book, she really irritated me. I will probably continue, I just hope it gets better. I did really like the adventure and story for this one but if the main character doesn't believe in herself then why should I follow through on reading her story.

Let me know in the comments what your opinions are on my break ups. =]

Cover Revealed: Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

I don't know if you guys know or not but Scholastic is coming up with whole new covers for the Harry Potter Series and this week they released the new Chamber of Secrets cover.
If you haven't seen it here is the new Sorcerer's Stone cover.
I have mixed feelings about the change in covers. I really like this cover and think that the old ones could use some updating. But I also love the old covers because that is what I grew up with and it is quintessentially Harry Potter.
Anyway, without further to do.
Here is the new scholastic cover of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:
My Thoughts on Chamber of Secrets Cover:
Okay, I am going to be brutally honest. I don't like this cover at all. I think it looks way to cartoony. I mean, I still like the style of it and the overall feel, it just doesn't seem magical enough and as amazing as it could be. The first, sorcerers stone one looks way more amazing then this one. Plus they choose a really boring seen to depict. Maybe it is because the original covers will always be in my heart.
What do you think of these new covers?
Let me know in the comment section and don't be afraid to be brutally honest. =]

Cover Revealed: The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus #4) by Rick Riordan

This week, the cover of the fourth installment of the Heroes of Olympus series was unveiled.
I still have yet to start this series, but I thought I would share this reveal because I really love their cover and will hopefully actually read the books someday.
All of the previous ones are sitting on my shelf just waiting to be read.
Without further to do, here is the cover:
The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus, #4)
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
Hardcover, 594 pages
Expected publication: October 8th 2013 by Hyperion Books
add to goodreads
At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus
I can't really say too much about the cover or the synopsis because I haven't read the books yet. But let me know in the comments what you guys think about it.

Title Revelealed: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Sequel

The title for Ransom Riggs sequel was just recently announced.
Also included in the announcement was a small description of the book plus an excerpt.
No cover has been released yet though.
The title of Miss Peregrine #2 is going to be called Hollow City.
Hollow City (Miss Peregrine, #2)
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: January 14th 2014 by Quirk Books
add to goodreads
Goodreads Synopsis:
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011—an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled readers and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it “an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters.”

This second novel begins in 1940, right after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends flee to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they encounter a dangerous madman named Caul, who also happens to be Miss Peregrine’s brother. Caul has discovered a way to rob Peculiars of their abilities and steal them for himself—and it will take all of Jacob’s efforts to save his friends from certain extinction.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly creepy) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
My Thoughts on the Title and Excerpt:
I am so excited for this one to come out. I loved Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children. Check out my review of it here. I can't believe I have to wait until Jan. 2014 though. The waiting is going to really kill me, I want to read it now. I really like the title for this one, I want to know what Hollow City means, it is really intriguing me. By looking at the excerpt, it seems that it starts right where the last book left off. To really enjoy this sequel, I will have to reread the first one, just so I remember it cause I read it so long ago, back in 2011. Overall, I really can't wait for this one to come out and I am so excited for it.
Let me know in the comments what you think of the title, description, and excerpt.

June TBR and May Rewind

This year I have set the same Goodreads goal as last year, which is 50 books, just in case you were wondering. I plan on smashing my goal this year. So I am making a master tbr list and will change it around every month or so and keep you guys updated here to my progress.

So without further ado here is my TBR list and the links to the books I want to read. The numbered ones are the ones that I am hoping to read this month. My list is full with notes and the dates that some books are coming out so I can prepare to read them in the future. Some of them are interchangeable with each other and I can choose to read whichever one I want. Those that are crossed out are ones that I have read already within the month. If I don't read them all they will carry over into the next month. =]

16) A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin (Started in March and April, still reading along with TV show.) (This could also be the reason why I am so behind cause its a long book.)
17) The Emerald Tablet by Joshua Silverman (Just started reading within the past week) 
(Falling for You by Lisa Schroeder comes out Jan. 1st, Make Plans to Buy/Read)
(Possibly reread The Host, movie comes out in theaters March 29th) (Didn't get to it.)
(The Mortal Instruments comes out in theaters August 23rd)
There is my list this month. I hope you guys cheer me on and keep me on track with my goal. I am really hoping to smash my goal this year. Link me up to your May TBR lists if you have posted one. I am really interested to know what others are wanting to read. I am hoping to continue to read a ton of books each month, so keep cheering me on to reach my goal. =]
So May was a little better then I have been doing these past few months. I got into a bunch of comics and hopefully will read a lot more because they have been all really good. I am working on posting a mini review of all of them to share with you guys. Hopefully this month will be a month for reading especially since I will be going on vacation soon where I can read all day if I want. Keep cheering me on. =]
