Warcross by Marie Lu

Hey everyone! Happy weekend! Today I am here to share with you a book by an author that I have become very into lately. The book is Warcross by Marie Lu! You may recognize Marie Lu's name from one of my previous posts where I mentioned two books from her Legend trilogy, Legend and Prodigy. You can click here to view that post.

Early on in 2018, I read Marie Lu's Legend trilogy, and I loved it so much! I looked up quotes and fan art, and I am currently making my best friend read the series, and she really likes it too! I am constantly asking for updates about which part she is at...

Anyway, I started reading Warcross a couple of days ago, and from the moment I read the first page, I was hooked!

My Apology Post #i'mtheworst

Mendax! Furcifer! If you don't know what that means it's probably because it is in Latin. Basically... I am a liar. What a great way to start my post! So, in my last post, which you may or may not know was posted two months ago, I said that my challenge for 2018 was to post every week about something that I have read in that past week... as you can probably tell by scrolling down my blog and looking at the dates for the entries, that did not happen.

I don't actually know how many people out there read this. Apart from friends from school who I am constantly reminding to read my blog. My dad told me at the start of 2018 that this blog should be for me. It should be something that I chose to do because I want to do it, not because I want to get more page views. He said that I don't have to commit myself to writing one post a week for I can get busy, and so on. At the time of course I was like, "Geez Dad, duh!" but now all I can think is, "Oh gosh... he was so right!".

I really love this blog. I want to try to write as much as I can, but I don't really know how often that will be. I'm not going to make any more promises that I can't keep. And to anyone who is reading this... I'm sorry.

Stay tuned for more awesomeness,
Greek Girl

P.S. Do you like my new Bitmoji? I think it looks pretty much just like me... 15 years in the future...

Happy 2018!

Happy 2018 everyone! Boy do I have a lot in store for you today! Along with the new year, I have decided to make some changes about the way I run my blog. As you know, I had a challenge for myself way back in 2016, to read 150 books in that year. By the time 2017 came around I had made it 137 books, so last year I tried again. And yet again I failed, landing a grand total of 88 books. Not nearly as well as I had done the year before. In case you don't remember, or you weren't a reader of my blog back then, I had rules for what books counted and what books didn't.

To refresh your memory:

Rule 1) Every book that I read has to be a book that I have not read before this year. For instance, if I read the same book twice this year, I cannot count it as two books read. But if I haven't read the book in a couple of years, however, and I read it again THIS year, I can count it once.

Rule 2) I have to read the book all the way through for it to count.

Rule 3) I do not count picture books. Yes, I know. Picture books are books too, but if it counted every time I read one of those, I would be done incredibly quickly and I want to make this a real challenge!

Rule 4) Graphic novels count, too (of course).

Forever or a Long, Long time by Caela Carter

Image result for forever or a long long time indieboundHello everyone! Since we had the day off from school on Friday, I had a lot of time for reading. I finished reading a book called Forever or a Long, Long Time by Caela Carter. I thought this book was absolutely amazing, and it was one that I HAD to share with you.

Forever or a Long, Long Time is a book about two siblings named Flora and Julian. Flora and Julian have spent most of their lives moving from foster home to foster home, and so they don't remember their beginning. They don't know where they came from. They don't know that they were born. All they know is that they always have each other, and that they always will.

As Old as Time: A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell

Hello everyone! I know that I haven't made a trailer for any of the books that I have posted about recently, and today I have a trailer that I just HAD to make. I read As Old as Time: A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell over the summer, but never got around to posting about it. I got so into this book, and brought it with me even if I didn't intend to read it at that moment. I have always loved fairy tales (messed up fairy tales especially--like this one!) and thought that this book would be perfect to create a trailer for! Be warned, this book is darker than it seems and will pull you in from the beginning.
