Stacking the Shelves #2 + Best Bookish Surprise EVER!!!

[STSmall%255B4%255D.png]


 Stacking the Shelves is hosted by the lovely peoples (I'm using that word to much lately...) over at Tynga's Reviews!  Basically, you recount all the books you got over the week!  Be they physical or virtual, they can be books for review, from the library, bought, given to you - the sky's the limit!  Pop over to their post about it for more info!



From the library I got...



14061955  13449693  11925514    9554790  

 Siege and Storm:  Read Shadow and Bone (the first book) a couple of weeks ago and looooooved it, but I've started Siege and Storm and urmmm...it's not great so far.  Hopefully it will become better later on!

The Raven Boys: I got this out of the library a few months back, but never got round to reading it, but I got it out again today and this time I'm determined to read very word of it!

Code name Verity:  I've lost count how many times I've tried to read this book and given up, before I'm halfway through.  More then the toes on both my feet that's for certain.  I'm going to try and finish it this time round, though!

The Other Life:  I confess that the thing that drew me like a butterfly to honey (the book has a butterfly on it, haha, gettit?) to this book is it's lovely, lovely cover.  IT'S SO PRETTY.  So I'm quite keen to start it and think I'll quite enjoy it.



 13542868  395338    9591398  11870085 

 The Farm:  I don't think I read enough scary stuff, and this book definitely looks creepy!  it does have vampire elements, which I'm not sure about (I LOATHE vampire stuff) but it does have an interesting concept, so we'll see how it goes.

Postcards From No Man's Land: This sounds so good!  Plus, parachutes on a cover is always a bonus, right?  Riiiight.

 The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making: Seen a lot of praise for this book, so when I saw it at the library, today, I snatched it up before you could say, "Muppet."  I'm hoping it'll become a much loved favourite.  I mean anything with a Main Character called September is going to be frabjous, isn't it?!

The Fault in Our Stars:  When I read TFIOS a wee while after it came out, I didn't like it.  Not one bit.  However, I am getting very, very, VERY tired of people saying, "How could you not like it?!  What's wrong with you?!" and acting like I'm going out of my way NOT to enjoy it, just so I can say I didn't like it.   I'M NOT.  Just because I didn't like it, DOES NOT mean I did it on purpose.  I just seem to have the bad luck of disliking books that the rest of the world thinks is better then chocolate *cough* Cassandra Clare books *cough* Anyway, it's been 2 years since I read TFIOS, so I wondered if my opinion might have changed and when I saw it at my library today, I couldn't resist and chucked it in my bag.  Also, I'm kinda chuffed because there are 159 holds on it at the moment, and it was just sitting there on the library shelf?  Haha.  MINE.  


Books I read this week... 

17792514180061281792677518140047   
Haven't read much this week I'm afraid!

Reboot: This book wasn't for me.  End of story.  2 stars

The Athena Effect: Enjoyed this waaaay more then I thought I would!  Got off Amazon for Montgomery the Kindle (yes, my kindle has a name, but I'm sure HEAPS of people name their kindle...don't they?) and *meant* to wait till the holiday we're going off to in July, but the thought I should read the first page - just to see what it was like of course... and then a couple hours later I'd finished it  3.5 stars

Love Letters to the Dead: Urgh.  This book nearly killed me. And not in a good way.  HATE, HATE, HATED IT! 1 star.

Stolen Songbird: French stuff + trolls don't mix, just so you know. 2 stars

 

THE BEST BOOKISH SURPRISE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

Review: Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier (I want a pet frog)

Today, my review is going to be a list of sorts, as a) I'm trying out slightly different ways of writing a review, and b) because lists are good.  Lists are very good.  I love lists.  Anyway, on with the review!  NOTE:  I will talk about spoilers but I'll highlight them to make sure the people that haven't read the book won't accidentally stumble across them!


13929

Publisher: Knopf || Release Date: January 23rd 2007 || Genre: Fantasy, Magic, Romania || Series: Wildwood #1  || Source: From the library! || Pages: 407 || Read It In: 4 hours || Word Rating: Endearing

High in the Transylvanian woods, at the castle Piscul Draculi, live five daughters and their doting father. It's an idyllic life for Jena, the second eldest, who spends her time exploring the mysterious forest with her constant companion, a most unusual frog. But best by far is the castle's hidden portal, known only to the sisters. Every Full Moon, they alone can pass through it into the enchanted world of the Other Kingdom. There they dance through the night with the fey creatures of this magical realm.

But their peace is shattered when Father falls ill and must go to the southern parts to recover, for that is when cousin Cezar arrives. Though he's there to help the girls survive the brutal winter, Jena suspects he has darker motives in store. Meanwhile, Jena's sister has fallen in love with a dangerous creature of the Other Kingdom--an impossible union it's up to Jena to stop.

When Cezar's grip of power begins to tighten, at stake is everything Jena loves: her home, her family, and the Other Kingdom she has come to cherish. To save her world, Jena will be tested in ways she can't imagine--tests of trust, strength, and true love.  ~Blurb from Goodreads~
.

 What I thought was Frabjous:



Gogu the frog.  I looovd Gogu!  He made an awesome best pal and I would personally LOVE my own pet frog!  Except you know, he would actually stay a frog, and so if you just *happened* to kiss him, he wouldn't turn into your long lost cousin Costi - cue gasp!  The friendship between Gogu and Jena was lovely too.

Jana.  Although at the end, I wasn't impressed with Jana's behaviour, the rest of the book I really liked and admired her.  She wasn't invincible or cold.  She wasn't weak or silly.  She was just...human.  Not idiot human though.  Jana was level headed, had good sense when it came to dire situations, and never went to pieces over silly things (until Costi came in, that is.  And then WHOOOMPH!  all good sense went out the window).  Still, she was a great MC.

The Fairytale.  This book is loosely based on The Twelve Dancing Princesses and The Princess and the Frog.  I've never really enjoyed The Twelve Dancing Princesses, as I always found there were to many princesses and they were all incredibly shallow.  However, in this tale, Marillier cut twelve down to five, and the princesses were merchants daughters.

The sibling relationship.  I'm getting very tired off bitter sibling rivalry in books.  It's never well written, always filled with angst, and is never solved properly.  However, in Wildwood Dancing, the siblings loving relationship was a breath of fresh air and I really enjoyed it.



What Bugged Me:

Costi.  The-long-lost-cousin-that-everyone-thought-was-dead-but-was-actually-Gogu-the-frog-but-coudn't-tell-anyone-because-he-was-under-a-enchantment-Costi.  Gogu the frog was awesome; Costi the human, however, was not.  Costi did NOTHING but whine and be a pain in the neck.  

 Tatai.  Tatai is the oldest sister of the five girls.  The whole book revolved around Jana running around, almost getting killed and getting into trouble,  all to help Tatai be with her new found Love Of Her Life/Soulmate (which I didn't believe for a SECOND), Sorrow.  What does Tatai do to help her sister, herself and her "love of her life"?  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, THAT'S WHAT.  Instead, she sits around the house, sighs heavily all of the time, refuses to eat, and then gets so weak from hunger, she slips into a coma.  This is not just stupidity; this is stupidity with stupidity with stupidity on top.

The Ending.  Through the WHOLE book, Jana fought about being made the little women thought fifteen (her age) was to young to be married off.  But as as soon as Costi came in to the picture, Jana's opinions about being marrying young went out the window, and the book ended with her planning her wedding so Costi and her could get on with making a male heir as soon as possible.  It just felt so fake!  And the tables turning so quickly didn't help either!  The ending was just RUBBISH and made me angry and disappointed.


However, apart from the *few* things that bugged me, Wildwood Dancing was a good read and I did enjoy it once I got past my frustrations.  


 ~My Rating~
 4/5 stars

Has anyone else read Wildwood Dancing?  What do you think about sibling rivalry?

Notebook Sisters Alice in Wonderland Blog Party Tag: LET'S PARTY, PARTY, PARTTTTTY

 Happy, happy, HAPPPPPPY bloggy birthday, to the Notebook Sisters!!!  These girls are the funniest bloggers in the blogosphere, but not only are they hilarious, they're amazing, brilliant, and just plain FRABJOUS.  They post some of the most thought provoking posts out there, but they also make you laugh as well.  It's their 3rd blogoversary this week, and to celebrate, they've come up with an Alice in Wonderland themed tag.  I know, frabjous, right?!  Pop over to their post to find out more!




1. Just Alice: What book cover(s) has made you super curious?
Oh gosh!  I am ashamed to say that I *sometimes* pick up a book just because it has a cover I like.  THIS ONLY HAPPENS OCCASIONALLY.  I am proud to say that I don't suffer coverloveitis (see?! it even has a name.) as badly as some bookworms do.


18044620

Wild AwakeI admit I picked up this book up just because it had an interesting cover.  It kind of fascinated me with all the blurred...stuff (don't ask) on it and the font was pretty.  I like pretty fonts, just fonts you can read y'know?  It's all very well having a squiggly noodle font on a cover, but if it's easier to distinguish upside down, well, you've got problems.  Sadly, I didn't like the insides of this book at all.


15842836

My Brother Simple!  Okay, I confess what hooked me was the bunny's chopped ear off.  Not that I'm murderous or anything (all though my best friend will differ) buuuuut, it interested me. Also, finger painted title font is always a bonus.  Turns out that sometimes you should just go with it, because I loved this book to Wonderland and back, and it's the only book I've ever read that almost made me cry.  ALMOST.



18053060
 
 Dorothy Must Die!  I am a girl that thinks less is more, and less half-naked-girls-in-dresses-that-are-so-big-it's-absurd is definitely MORE.  So I liked the simplicity of this cover.  There was no gorgeous young female in some pose that you're not even going to find in the actual novel, just a dress outline (no poofs!), shoes, (though I thought red shoes would've been better) and a bow (checked, of course).  The font on this was lovely, too.  I especially liked the 'Die' bit.  I can't make up my mind it looks like strawberry sauce or blood... I'm siding on blood (alright maybe I'm slightly murderous.  But only a bit).



2. Mad Hatter: List the craziest character(s) you've ever read.

11836538 

Croak! The characters in this book are all psycho!  Like, psycho, PSYCHO.  No one in this book comes under the word, 'normal', 'freaks' 'nutty', and 'psycho' are more apt.

3. Red Queen, Off With Your Head! What book have you felt like beheading?

I am a very, very, VERY picky bookworm.  I give out 1 stars as easily as breathing.  But the two unlucky books I pick today, are:

13138763 

The Things We Did For Love!  Good grief!  This novel was so depressing!  And made no sense!  I picked this book up because I was suffering coverloveitis at the time, (it IS pretty, admit it) But, OMG.  I wanted to burn this book over a fire slowly, after I read it.  That, and making my dog eat it.  Except I wouldn't want my poor pooch to get sick afterwards.  This book involves stupidity, how to be the most selfish person EVER, lessons on what to do if your boyfriend is in danger of leaving the village (do NOT do this home) and a tutorial on how to burn heaps of people in a church.  ALL THE COOL CHARACTERS MAY I ADD.  While the selfish ones escaped.   Blarrrrgh.


18044620 

Wild Awake!  This book had so much going for it, but it failed.  Epically.  I kind of want to write a post detailing to authors that not all teenagers drink, swear, do drugs 24/7 and don't sneak out/go out at all hours of the night.  Yucky book.


4. White Rabbit: What books or series have been insanely popular but you've been "late" to pick them up?

10194157 
 Shaodow and Bone! I've given this one a wide berth, because I thought it wasn't my thing, and my tbr is always in danger of killing me so it didn't really need any more fodder, but, a few weeks ago, I saw it at the library, and decided to give it a try...and oh, MAN!  I was hooked!  Read it in a couple of hours and whoaaaaah!  SO GOOD.  Plus, the cover is so unusual!  Makes me think of lollipops for some reason (this a good sign...I think).


5. Caterpillar: What's the most confusing book you've read? 





17162

The Chocolate War! GAD!  This book was confusing from word 1!  I spent most of the book, going "WHAAAAT?!?!?!  THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!!" and the other part restraining myself from throwing it against my bedroom wall.  Because y'know, I wouldn't want to mark my bedroom wall, would I?  This book also deserves to be beheaded.


6. Dormouse: What was the last book that sent you to sleep? 

963508 

Cybele's Secret I'm *trying* to read this at the moment, as I loved the first book, Wildwood Dancing.  However, Paula is the most BORING MC EVEEER, and I'm really struggling.  I'm annoyed, because Jana the MC in Wildwood Dancing was fantastic, but Paula her younger sister is just...very sleep enticing if that makes sense.  

 7. Cheshire Cat: Book that made you laugh and smile?

16069167 

Fire and Flood was so fuuunnnnny!  I was constantly giggling all the way through, which is probably why I gave it a high rating even if I didn't enjoy the rest of it as much.  Still, FUNNNNNY BOOK.


1379697 

Looking For Alibrandi!  This book is...beautiful.  Although the ending nearly killed me, this book made me laugh so much.  Josie is one of my favourite main character's  EVER.  She has so much snark, I'm convinced that we are secret soul sisters.


 8. Knave of Hearts: Most recent character who stole your heart?

18079527 

Haley from The Impossible Knife of Memory!  Hayley really pulled my heartstrings and I was so sad to say goodbye to her at the end of the book.  I loved how human, Hayley was, and how far she'd go to save her Dad.  Plus, COVER LOVE!!  I ADORE this cover and it's going down on my Bestest Frabjous Covers of 2014 List. 

9. Jabberwocky: Best villain you've read this year?


Oh, gosh, that's a tricky one!  I haven't really read any great villains this year, but I thought Dorothy from Dorothy Must Die was pretty awesome!

10. Down the Rabbit Hole: What's the latest book/series/author that's completely swallowed your interest?


18080011 
  
The Every series by Ellie Marney!!  This isn't a 'new' obsession, but I've been obsessed with this series ever since the first book, Every Breath came out last year!  To say I am looking forward to the second book, Every Word coming out on June is an understatement!  I have the date marked on my calender, I'm number 1 in line at the library, I google updates, frequently, and I just loooooooove this series to pieces!!  Cannot recommend it enough!!  HURRY UP AND READ IT, CAIT.


So that's me done!!  Massive thanks to the Notebook Sister for coming up with this frabjous tag!!

Frabjous plans for the future

Hello lovely people!  I know I haven't posted much last week, but I was unwell and then busy...and well sometimes life is to crammed full of stuff to try and slip blogging in as well.  However!  Although I haven't been posting, I HAVE been thinking about where I want Once Upon a Bookish Time to go.  I'm going to start posting discussions as well as book reviews, so that is going to be fun.  I also want to make my book reviews a little different, and my frabjous mother gave me a brilliant idea.  (Mothers are great like that.)  However, I'm not going to tell you this idea until I'm sure it's going to work, but give me a couple of days and I should be able to show you!  I am very excited!

Tomorrow, I'm joining up with Notebook Sisters Alice in Wonderland Tag, so that's going to be fuuuuuuuun!

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books About Friendship (involves traces of muppet)

 

 And it's Top Ten Tuesday again!  I had so much fun doing it last week, that I've decided I'm going to try and do it every week from now on!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the amazing book lovers over at The Broke and the Bookish!
This weeks topic is: Top Ten Books About Friendship..


1. Follow the Blue by Brigid Lowry

297798

AAAAAAAAAHH.  This book.  I have no words.  READ IT.

2. My Brother Simple by Marie-Aude Murail

15842836 

This is the one book in all the books I've read in my existence that almost made me bawl.  My heart is made of stone; I DO NOT CRY OVER BOOKS. 

3. Down the Road to Gundagai by Jackie French

19077821

I love Jackie French with all my heart.  This is the ONLY book so far this year that I've given 5 stars.  I adored how strong a friendship the circus crew had, and how welcoming and family like they were.  Reminds me of when I was younger and wanted to run away to a circus ;)  Aussie authors are the best kind.

3. Sisters in Sanity by Gale Forman

6417129 

Although I didn't like If I Stay, I loooved this book like chocolate.  One of the best books about friendship I have EVER read.  Adventure, determination, selflessness, humanity...yup, this was a great book. 

4. Every Breath by Ellie Marney

18080011 
I love this duo so much!  I love that their friendship is still really strong, even when they do get romantically involved with each other.  You see so many great friendships go down the drain faster then you can say 'muppet' when they introduce a sickly fake romance that feels awkward and stupid.  This was NOT the case with this book!  Cannot WAIT for Every Word, coming out in June!


5. How to Lead a Life of Crime by Kirsten Miller

15715844

I doubt when people think of this book that they think 'friendship'.  But I do!  I don't think the characters would have been able to succeed half the things they did without each other's friendship.  I'm pretty sure Cait will agree with me, eh ,Cait? ;)

6. The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling

 
 Need I say more?! ;)
I know this a series, but I DON'T CARE.  This is the series/books OF ALL FRIENDSHIPS.  These three friends have gone through EVERYTHING and come out way stronger because of it.  Hermione is my other part, I'm sure of it.


7. Blades of Magic by Terah Edun

20948304

Although the cover is disgusting (IT IS!), the actual book is really good and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.  I loved the friendship between Sara and Ezekiel.  It's SO nice reading a book where romance isn't dominating the story and we just have a great friendship instead.  Great read, I definitely recommend it.


9. The Book Thief by


Because this book is FULL of friendship to the brim.  It reminds us that even when times are hard and bleak, if we have friends and love, it will make the journey easier. 

10. The Muppets Character Encyclopedia


19432878

Stop.  I know what you're thinking: Ella has obviously run out of books about friendship and is just putting this one in to fill the gap.  WRONG!  I am a MASSIVE fan of The Muppets, and a big thing about The Muppets is FRIENDSHIP.  Although this book is basically an encyclopedia  not a book, it's all about friends, so it counts. ;)


That's my Top Ten!  Have you read any from my list?! More importantly, are you a fan of The Muppets?!  Leave me a link to your Top Ten Tuesday in the comments!

Review: The Fearless by Emma Pass (The writing is like my hair: tangled and knotty on occasion)

After reading Emma Pass' first book Acid and adoring it,  I was excited to hear that she had another book coming out The Fearless and was even more excited when Netgalley approved my request to review an eARC!!!   Thank you Netgally and Random House for letting me review this title! (I love you very much.)




18160146


Publisher: Random House || Release Date: 24th April 2014 || Genre: paranormal,  soft-scifi, post-apocalyptic || Series: None (I think)  || Source: Netgalley, for review! || Pages: 400 || Read It In: 2 hours || Word Rating: Confusing and tangled



The Fearless. An army, powered by an incredible new serum that makes each soldier stronger, sharper, faster than their enemies. Intended as a force for good, the serum has a terrible side-effect - anyone who takes it is stripped of all humanity, empathy, love. And as the Fearless sweep through the country, forcing the serum on anyone in their path, society becomes a living nightmare.

Cass remembers the night they passed through her village. Her father was Altered. Her mother died soon after. All Cass has left is her little brother - and when Jori is snatched by the Fearless and taken to their hellish lair, Cass must risk everything to get him back. ~Blurb from Goodreads~
.
 ~Review~

I finished The Fearless within a couple of hours and came away feeling annoyed, dissatisfied and disappointed.  I guess after enjoying Acid so much, I expected great things The Fearless which I didn't get.

I think what I most disliked was the multiple points of views.  My bookish heart despises multiple points of views.  They confuse me, they're never used correctly (in my eye) and urghhhh, I just hate them with a passion.  In The Fearless we have the point of view of Cass (idiot), Myo (bigger idiot), and Sol (secret psychopath).  While I could've just coped with both Cass and Myo's point of views, I could see no point in Sol-the-secret-psychopath's point of view.  I personally think the story would've been better if it didn't have Sol's demented ranting on how Cass was his (his property) and he would KILL anyone that crossed him.  I mean C'MON.  How could no one else in the book see that he had a screw loose???

Cass was a weak main character.  She runs away with Myo a total stranger WHO WAS CAPTURED FOR TRESPASSING IN THE FIRST PLACE AND WHO PLANNED TO LEAVE CASS BEHIND AT THE FIRST POSSIBLE MOMENT AND HAS SOME PRETTY DIRTY SECRETS.  But of course, he doesn't leave Cass behind, and then he starts to develop feeeeeeeeeelings for Cass.  Of course. *throws up*
Myo was an idiot and pretty much made out of cardboard.  I didn't like him not once during the whole book and wished he'd die more then once.

The writing was all over the place.  It reminded me off my hair on a really bad day: knots and tangles for miles and the rest so frizzy it looks like I've shoved my finger up an electric socket.  NOT FUN.  The writing would be slow, then everything would be rushed and then slow and then rushed again.  SO confusing and annoying.

The whole 'Fearless drug' idea didn't really ring true.  It basically turned you into a silver-eyed human demon but the whole idea was a bit off.  Interesting but needed to be thought out more.


All in all, The Fearless was a confusing and disappointing read.  I might have expected to much from it, but I didn't expect it to be like this.  Fans of dystpian and soft-scifi might enjoy this book.

~Rating~
2 stars out of 5


Has anyone else read The Fearless?  Did you enjoy it, or find it disappointing and confusing like I did?
Does anyone else suffer from electric-socket-hair?!!!

Stacking the Shelves #1!

 Stacking the Shelves


It's my very first Stacking the Shelves!!! Stacking the Shelves is hosted by the lovely people over at Tynga's Reviews!  Basically, you recount all the books you got that week, be they physical or virtual.  They can be books for review, from the library, bought, given to you - the sky's the limit!



From the Library:


13260749
Bird is SOOOO good that I'm going to make my younger brother read it!
13929
This is supposed to be the fairytale of ALL fairytales...also the author was born in New Zealand which is where I live so I'm excited to read it.  Will try to start reading it tonight once I finish Bird
13423346
I do like me a multi culture book, and this looks right up my street! 


12988106
A bit unsure about this one!  A friend recommended it to me and she loved it so it'll be interesting to see what I think of it.

11500217
I've already read this!  It was okaaay, but iffy confusing as well.  Review to come (hopefully) this week!


12983100
The sequel to Angelfall.  I read the first couple of pages last night but yeeeeeah.  We'll see how it goes. (In Secret Ella Language that means I'll probably give up round the first few chapters.)




  

For Review:

Thanks Netgalley for these lovely ARCs!

21819191
When I requested this book, I thought it'd be a fun read.  Erk, no.  SO confusing and SO many different points of views, which I HATE.  My brain is so confused.


18273368
Being an idiot and not reading things properly (I do this a lot) I didn't realize that this was the THIRD book in the trilogy.  And I haven't read the first or the second.  I tried reading it yesterday and was actually surprised that it wasn't that confusing.  Though may I add, I only read four pages.  Four pages is a start, though, right?



17338059
Having read and adored Emma Pass' first book, Acid, I was over the moon about getting The Fearless for review.  I finished it this afternoon and wasn't impressed AT ALL.  Review to come sometime this week!
   


Bought:

Nothing! Though I am thinking of splurging out at my local bookshop this week.


What did you get this week?!  Have you read any on my list?!  Leave a link in the comments!!!
