Peachy Book Haul for April!

                                Currently Reading   Currently Reading  

As you probably have already noticed on my blog (on the left column) I am going to be reading two books in this current month:
  • City of Ashes  by Casasandra Clare- the second book to The Mortal Instruments series
  • Delirium  by Lauren Oliver- the first book in the Delirium series.
I extremely enjoy books which have a great story to them (who doesn't??) and most of all when these stories are elongated in multiple sequels! The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare currently has 6 books (which I think remains this amount, correct me if I am wrong), thus there will be an abundance of enjoyment and wonderful imaginitions created in my head when egaging more and more into these books!

I recently finished the 1st book of the series, which was a fun, adventurous, and a great page turner and easy read. The story itself excited me and the twist in the end made me want to continue reading the next book. I have also heard from other readers that they thought the 2nd book was even better than the first, which really makes me happy!

I will therefore begin reading the 2nd book from The Mortal Instruments series which I will give a review on once I have finished it! I am quite busy with studying and moving out (I am moving to London in a month!!) so I am not sure how long I will take reading this book, but I think that also really depends on whether this book is truly page turner as most readers have claimed. Nonetheless, the synopsis once again intrigued me as the first book did, so I have no doubt that this book will be a quick read!

After I have read the City of Ashes, I will continue with Lauren Oliver's first book of the Delirium sequel called... (can you guess it?)... Delirium! I am really, really, really (really, really, really!!) excited to read this book as I am completely crazy about dystopian novels and the heroin of this book sounds amazing! She sounds like the heroin which I completely adore (brave, strong willed, and powerful in her own ways). I also enjoy books more which are written in the first person, as in my opinion only then can the reader truly put him/herself in their shoes and actually read exactly what the heroin is feeling!
Here are some of my favorite praises for Delirium:


"Delirium will tug at your heart and make your pulse race. This book reminds us that life is about more than simply existing: it's about understanding you have to experience pain in order to fully appreciate joy." --Justine Magazine 
"Those looking for romance and an action-packed dystopian tale should pick a copy of this novel"-- MTV 
 "Oliver's deeply emotional and incredibly well-honed prose commands the readers' attention and captures their hearts. With a pulse-pounding tempo of unforseen twists and turns, Lauren Oliver has opened the door on fatastic new series; the second book can't come soon enough"-- New York Journal of Books

As the New York Journal of Books states, "Lauren Oliver has opened the door on a  fantastic new series".    That is something which I really urn a book series. A book which makes you desire for more and more and makes you want to grab the sequel and relish yourself deeper into the adventurous world of the story the author so dearly creates!

I am super excited with these books and I can't wait to give my reviews and ratings on them and to let you know what I thought of them!
