[Stacking the Shelves] not-my-usual-read books...

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews.

I’m this kid who’s always interested in taste testing stories/genres I don’t usually read. I’m patient and always open minded :)

A Game of Thrones has such a huge fan base. I have no plans on watching the TV series just because I’m not a TV person. I borrowed the book from my sister @ So Gelleesh. My eyes widen at the sight of it. It has 807 pages @__@ the longest book I’ve read this year was Parasite which is 500+ pages only… and A Game of Thrones is the pages of Parasite + a half more. This might take me for awhile…

Orenda (Orenda, #1)
Join forces with a parallel universe.  
Dark forces, magical creatures, and the world Lil thought she knew collide when a dream transports her to the strange world of Orenda. Stunned and terrified, Lil comes face to face with her doppelganger, Willow, who possesses the ability to travel between the two worlds. Everything Lil knows logically says that Orenda can’t exist, but a small clue may be proof that it was more than an ordinary dream. With the threat of her sister in danger, Lil crosses dimensions but it may cost her even more than she bargained for.  
A sword wielding girl, the eternal suit, and a parallel universe come together in this action- packed Young Adult fantasy adventure that will keep readers of all ages turning the pages. Orenda is the first novel in the Orenda series.

Emmeline knows she’s not supposed to explore the woods outside her settlement. The enemy that wiped out half her people lurks there, attacking at night and keeping them isolated in an unfamiliar land with merciless winters. Living with the shame of her grandmother’s insubordination, Emmeline has learned to keep her head down and her quick tongue silent. 
When the settlement leader asks for her hand in marriage, it’s an opportunity for Emmeline to wash the family slate clean—even if she has eyes for another. But before she’s forced into an impossible decision, her dreams urge her into the woods, where she uncovers a path she can’t help but follow. The trail leads to a secret that someone in the village will kill to protect. Her grandmother followed the same path and paid the price. If Emmeline isn’t careful, she will be next.

[TOP TEN TUESDAY] Books I Really Want to Read But Don’t Own Yet.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and The Bookish.

This Week’s Topic: Books I Really Want to Read But Don’t Own Yet.

It’s a really huge list for me. Every time I’d drop by the bookstore, it seems that I just want to grab half of the books displayed there (but of course I can’t do that). Book buying bans don’t work for me anymore because I want to buy books every single week. It’s like I always want to see something new in my shelf even though I know that I still have a fair amount of books to read. ohgodthebookbuyingaddiction!

[Stacking the Shelves] AND I’M FINALLY GOING TO READ THE HUNGER GAMES!

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews.

Like that’s a big deal.

Today, I finally received my friend’s copy of the Hunger Games. Why I just borrowed the Hunger Games is because I’m afraid that I might not entirely like it as much as I want to. I mean yes, I like dystopian novels… but what makes me hesitant in actually buying it is because I slept around 25% of the movie. If I ended up really liking the book, I just might buy a book set. If not, then I’ll just borrow the rest of the books :)
