I know it’s been a while since I last updated. I have been very with college and I’m almost done for the semester. I have decided to put this on hiatus until the new year, I will be writing reviews on Goodreads. This blog will go through a makeover, for better navigation. I will see you all in the new year!

Goodreads Summary: Cain and Abel are transferred to the battleship Sleipnir for a critical mission, and the further they venture into enemy space, the deeper their relationship becomes. As Cain struggles to make a name for himself among his new shipmates, the Commanders assign Abel to a project that may give the Alliance a decisive advantage in the war against the Colterons. The Commanders, however, may not necessarily have Abel’s best interests at heart…

Series: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe #1
Started: July 10, 2017
Finished: September 25, 2017
Goodreads Summary: Dante can swim. Ari can’t. Dante is articulate and self-assured. Ari has a hard time with words and suffers from self-doubt. Dante gets lost in poetry and art. Ari gets lost in thoughts of his older brother who is in prison. Dante is fair skinned. Ari’s features are much darker. It seems that a boy like Dante, with his open and unique perspective on life, would be the last person to break down the walls that Ari has built around himself.
But against all odds, when Ari and Dante meet, they develop a special bond that will teach them the most important truths of their lives, and help define the people they want to be. But there are big hurdles in their way, and only by believing in each other―and the power of their friendship―can Ari and Dante emerge stronger on the other side.
This year I didn’t do to well with reading the amount I wanted to read. I’ve been in reading slump the entire year and I’m slowly getting out of it. I was hoping over the summer I would catch up on the number of books I’ve read and I fell behind. Now that I’m back in college, I went back today and yes the Solar Eclipse happened today too and the college was slammed with visitors wanting to see it. I live in Colorado and we got lucky to see 90% of it.
Anyways, I’m back in college and I’m in my last stretch of it before I graduate in the Spring. During this time I will be reading at a slow pace because of the five classes I’m taking and possibly getting a job.
So, over the summer I only read three books. I originally thought I read five books but I was wrong. But I did finish the books I wanted to finish before moving on to the next books. So let’s get on with the books I have read over the summer.

Series: Harry Potter #1

Goodreads Summary: Harry Potter’s life is miserable. His parents are dead and he’s stuck with his heartless relatives, who force him to live in a tiny closet under the stairs. But his fortune changes when he receives a letter that tells him the truth about himself: he’s a wizard. A mysterious visitor rescues him from his relatives and takes him to his new home, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
After a lifetime of bottling up his magical powers, Harry finally feels like a normal kid. But even within the Wizarding community, he is special. He is the boy who lived: the only person to have ever survived a killing curse inflicted by the evil Lord Voldemort, who launched a brutal takeover of the Wizarding world, only to vanish after failing to kill Harry.
Though Harry’s first year at Hogwarts is the best of his life, not everything is perfect. There is a dangerous secret object hidden within the castle walls, and Harry believes it’s his responsibility to prevent it from falling into evil hands. But doing so will bring him into contact with forces more terrifying than he ever could have imagined.
I have finally decided to make a YouTube channel for this page. I will be posting reviews on here, the channel will be for vlogs, tags, or challenges.
Excuse my awkwardness, hopefully that will get better over time.

Goodreads Summary: You can’t stop the future. You can’t rewind the past. The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.

Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.
Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.
