City of Bones

Title: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments #1)
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry (Simon & Schuster)
Pub year: 2007
Genre: Urban Fantasy/ YA Fantasy

Rating: 4.5/5

Take a girl—Clary Fray—and add a geeky nerd—Simon Lewis—then mix in a night out at a nearby club in NY. Add a pinch of demon, three mysterious demon-killers, and slowly watch the whole thing unfold. Oh yeah, and one of those three being a super hot demon hunter who just can't keep his mouth shut—and his eyes off Clary. (How could I possibly forget him? He's super hot, and he has a smart mouth! *winks*)

Clary soon after realizes that she stumbled into the wrong place at the wrong time. When she witnesses 3 teens her age commit murder, what will she do? What can she do?

Find out in Cassandra Clare's City of Bones!


This is already being filmed to become a movie! Yes! Lily Collins is Clary, Jamie something or other is Jace, and a bunch of epic cast members as all the others!

So...very good fantasy novel, I'm yet to read City of Fallen Angels, which is the fourth book in the series. Yes, this has angels/paranormalcy about it, but DON'T LET THAT DISCOURAGE YOU! READ IT!

Random PJO Pics!

In there is:








See if you can figure them all out! These pics are from the
Camp Half-Blood wiki that I just so happen to edit and be on! My username on Wikia is made-you-read so check me out on Wikia!


Future animated Jace? (he's the second picture down)

(Jace is from the Mortal Instruments series...I've read books 1-3 so far)

This is really Jack Frost from the upcoming Dreamworks movie "The Guardians"(this is not the one based on a book).

The other pics are a fan art of Jace and Clary. My fav out of those is the one where she has her stele, and he has a seraph blade, not to mention the one where Jace is by himself in (what I think is) the Institute. :D These are the rest of the pics.

Also: future Valentine? Probably not, but...idk. Oh yeah, by the way, that pic is the one of the crazy brother in Snow White & the Huntsman, right below this post.

The Maze Runner


The Maze Runner
James Dashner
Genres: Dystopia, Young adult literature, Science Fiction, Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction
2nd book: The Scorch Trials
3rd book: The Death Cure

The Maze Runner follows 15 year old Thomas as he enters a mysterious maze, remembering nothing but his name. When Thomas arrives at this weird place he has a lot of questions, but no one will answer them. There are about fifty people who live in the maze, but the weirdest part is that they're all guys. Finally, he finds out that this place is called the Glade and these boys have been living here for two years; they get a new boy once a month. Also they are forced to have people run the maze everyday before the do closes and the walls shift so that they can find a way out. only a day after Thomas arrives a girl appears in the Glade in a coma. While in they coma Thomas finds that he and the girl (Teresa) can speak in each others minds. Right before she wakes up she tells Thomas that she has triggered the ending. After she wakes up the doors to the maze don't close, which allow these horrible things called Grievers (half-flash/half-machines) to attack. Faced with the impossible task, Thomas and Teresa (plus Thomas's friends Newt and Minho) have to try and solve the maze before everyone dies.
     This series has to be one of the best I've read so far. It has danger, action, and (not to mention) a love triangle. James Dashner did a wonderful job.


First day of fall!


Well, at least all of the trees will change...there's a plus, I guess.
If it was yesterday, then, uhhh, I KNEW THAT!

(the equinox happens twice a year, once for fall and once for spring, which means that night and day are the same length, only for that day! I'm such a geek!)

Pandora time again!

Listen to the Alt Indie Love Songs Radio (isn't that a mouthful), and you won't be sorry. With artists like Eric Hutchinson, Jack Johnson, Death Cab For Cutie, and Ingrid Michaelson, it's the perfect chill-out station.

In fact, I'm listening to it right now!

Glee sings Imagine Dragons!

Glee airs every Thursday night, on FOX

On last night's episode of the Fox hit Glee (it's about girl who's good at singing, and she escalates in drama—and show choir—throughout her high school life), Blaine sings "It's Time" by indie group Imagine Dragons!

Imagine Dragons were formed in Provo, UT, and are produced by Alex Da Kid, who also produces the epic emo-rock band Paramore(!).

They're amazing, I love the songs "Demons", "Tip Toe", and "Radioactive". The first and last songs of those are on their EP, Continued Silence; all three are on their new full-length, Night Visions.

Give 'em a listen!

Completely and utterly random.

This has NOTHING to do with books.

Yes, I did draw the robot myself. :3


(it's a little hard to read, but it says: "If a robot does the robot, it it still the robot, or is it just dancing?")

Eleven years ago today, two planes crashed into the Twin Towers in New York City, New York. Another plane flew into the Pentagon, and yet another crash landed in a field in Pennsylvania. Thousands of people were killed that day, wether from being in or near the Pentagon or Twin Towers during the attack, being on any of the four planes that crashed, or being one of the heroic people that risked their lives to save others. Today, we remember that day, and mourn the losses of others.

We will never forget.

Revolution airs Monday, September 17 on NBC.

I love this show! The free full-episode pilot is on Xfinity OnDemand, and it is fantastic.


Revolution is created by J.J. Abrams, and takes place in Chicago, 15 years after all electronics—plugged in or not—mysteriously "blacked out". Very Divergent/Insurgent-type setting, even complete with a rusted over Navy Pier and O'Hare as an airport graveyard.
People have set up their own villages, townships, and militias, equaling death for whoever disobeys. A group of militia come to the village where Charlie—the main character and heroine—resides, in search of her father. However, her brother, Danny, thinks otherwise, and soon, a bloodbath ensues. The militia captain takes Danny after his father is shot and killed, and Charlie hears his dying wish,

"Find Miles..."

Charlie goes on a quest to avenge her father and save her brother, all while trying to manage to survive.

Great show, good job, NBC.

(Picture credit goes to NBC Studios and I own nothing.)

Zynga needs help with math.

Can anyone tell me how the heck, in any logic whatsoever, how this makes sense?

I was playing Words With Friends...hmmm...

Really confused.
