On My Shelf is an original feature inspired by the On My Shelf tag. Each time I will take 5 random books from my shelves and tell you about them (how I got them, what I think of them etc.), and if they are in Dutch I will write a small synopsis of them.
I will roll some dice to find out which books it will be.
The Elite (The Selection #2) by Kiera Cass
Enthralled by The Selection I bought The Elite the week after I got back from my volunteer-work. And I read it again the year after during my one and a half week of volunteer-work. And was very annoyed when it was finished, so I bought The One when I got back. I still had a love/hate relationship with the series and still can’t make up my mind how many stars I would give it. I will reread it next year or so to tell you guys.
City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare
I got City of Glass together with the other two books in the trilogy during my internship in Greece. I found this one the least interesting one of the bunch, but it is still not bad. But they will never win it from The Infernal Devices..
Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins
I got the complete Hunger Games trilogy from a friend of mine, with mismatching covers – sigh – but thanked him non-the-less. I think the Hunger Games itself would have been a great standalone too, but Catching Fire is a great second part, but the end! I never take this book on holidays if I can’t take Mockingjay, since when I finished it the first time I was on holiday and literally had to go to the bookstore to buy me a second copy to know what happened and then brought it back after finishing it and reading half of it in t he story already. I feel a bit a shamed of that kind of behavior, let’s hope it never happens again.
The Wrath of Fate (Airship Pirate #1) by Robert Brown
I bought this book because I like the music of Abney Park, who’s singer is the author of this book. And I enjoyed it very much, there were some things that bugged me, probably because it is self-published and most of the editing done by himself. But is very amusable and he writes very compelling.
The Scorch Trails (The Maze Runner #2) by James Dashner
I got The Scorch Trails in the bundle I got myself when I wanted to read these books. I am very sad to say I did not like this book at all, even though the next one was even worse. So I never completely finish this series, but oh well. There are so many more books in this world, how will I ever read them all?
