So I finished Graceling a few days ago. I've heard from lotsa people that it's really good! This is basically what it's about:
In a time of kings, lords, lady's, swords, and bow and arrows...there are certain people born with a "grace". If you have a grace, it basically means you are better than everyone else at this thing. The main character's grace is KILLING. This isn't normal at ALL! There are people who are graced with painting, swimming, sword fighting, cooking, etc. Anyway, it's a book that is filled with action, mystery, and romance.
I really really liked it and I read it within a few days. It was quite the page turner! BUT- there was one major theme that was pretty annoying. The author CLEARLY doesn't believe in marriage. BUT...it's definitely not enough to make me not enjoy the book!
It was really interesting because there were times I couldn't STAND the heroine, Katsa. Then there were other times when I just thought she was awesome.
If you're looking for a fun interesting read, I recommend this book! I think there may be a second one, but I'm not positive.
Now I am reading "Matched". Has anyone read this book? I'm half-way through and it is BORING as heck! But since I've invested my time to read HALF of the book...I want to finish it. But seriously I have no desire to ever pick it up. Does it stay so boring? Yikes.
After Matched, I'm reading "Beastly". I saw the movie about a month ago and I really liked the movie...so I'm excited to read the book and get the detailed story :)
Any good books I should put on my library list? Keep in mind I'm not interested in non-fiction, and I have to be entertained and it has to be a gripping story that keeps me wanting more. I read for entertainment. As of right now anyway.
