Waiting on Wednesday: Nevermore by James Patterson

Nevermore
By: James Patterson
Publication Date: August 6th

From Goodreads:
One last chance…

for Max, Fang, and Dylan…
before it all ends.

Are you ready for the final chapter? Are you ready for the ultimate flight? Because THIS IS IT. One last incredible, explosive adventure with an astonishing ending that no one could have seen coming.

Not much of a description, but I am SO excited for this book. Nevermore is the eighth book in the Maximum Ride series, and I have been waiting on this book for a whole four months (long, I know.) Everybody knows that all final books in series are epic (see: Mockingjay, Deathly Hallows, Breaking Dawn, etc.), and this one will be no exception. 

Only a couple more weeks…

Nightlock Podcast Episode 29: Too Little, Too Late

Nightlock Podcast

Major news stories including casting are announced. While discussing chapter 5 of Catching Fire a few different questions came up. Were Peeta, Katniss and Haymitch trying to protect Effie by not informing her of the killing in District 11? Does Katniss see Peeta as perfect, what are his flaws? Should Katniss and Haymitch kept Peeta in the loop? Is Effie justified in complaining how she is treated in District 11? Does Katniss realize how the marriage proposal effects Peeta? We read a snippet of a fanfic from Gale’s perspective. A Green Day song is featured. Listener emails brought up how Johanna’s name is pronounced, where District 12 and the Capitol are located.

Book Review: City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

In honor of the Clockwork Princess cover being released this week, I’m going to be review Cassandra Clare’s most recent book, City of Lost Souls.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

This book was the first one in The Mortal Instrument series that I actually had to wait for, and let me tell you, that wait felt like years rather than the couple of months than it actually was. And that wait was definitely worth it to get this fantastic book.
City of Lost Souls takes place practically immediately after City of Fallen Angels (give or take a couple of weeks) and it shows how emotionally and mentally drawn out Clary is from everything she’s been through. In a matter of weeks, she’s lost her boyfriend, been put on trial by the Clave, and now knows her evil brother is dead, which can’t be incredibly easy to take in all at once.
I’ve always somewhat sympathisized with Clary in this series, but I could honestly feel all that pain that she was going through, and I always found myself feeling as if I was Clary because Cassie’s writing is so good.
Sometimes, it takes me a little bit to get into a story, but with Cassie’s books, I never feel that way. Especially with this one. I always needed to go and read to see what was happening with Jace, Simon, Clary, (and my personal favorite) Sebastian/Johnathon.
Speaking of characters, I have to say Cassie knows how to write them. Although I know that I should be right along with Clary and Jace (and the rest of the Clave for that matter) for hating Sebastion, I just don’t. I like him. Correction: I LOVE him. He’s smart, attractive, and absolutely manipulative, which is something I often find attractive in fictional characters (*cough* Caine from Gone *cough*). He’s supposed to be so evil, but from the writing, we also see that human side of him. We see that he can love, that he is capable of friendship.

Also, the Maia and Kyle story line was absolutely one of my favorites out of all of the series. It showed quite a bit of character development for both of the characters, for Kyle forgiving himself enough to fall in love again, and for Maia to forgive Kyle enough to allow herself to love him again.

Overall, City of Lost Souls is most definitely the best book in the series so far. It took on an emotional roller coaster. One moment I was sighing happily with some cute little romantic thing, and the next I was crying because of something to sweet for me to react rationally or something that was absolutely heart breaking.

I have two words for Cassandra Clare: BEAUTIFUL JOB. This book was written beautifully and unlike a lot of other books, made me feel so many things. It put me into the characters positions and made me el what they’re feeling.


I don’t think I can wait an entire year for City of Heavenly Fire
