The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

Title: The Well of Ascension (Mistborn #2)
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Released August 21st, 2007
Bought on Kindle
Rating: 4.5/5

Summary

The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler – the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years – has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

As Kelsier’s protégé and slayer of the Lord Ruler she is now venerated by a budding new religion, a distinction that makes her intensely uncomfortable. Even more worrying, the mists have begun behaving strangely since the Lord Ruler died, and seem to harbor a strange vaporous entity that haunts her.

Stopping assassins may keep Vin’s Mistborn skills sharp, but it’s the least of her problems. Luthadel, the largest city of the former empire, doesn’t run itself, and Vin and the other members of Kelsier’s crew, who lead the revolution, must learn a whole new set of practical and political skills to help. It certainly won’t get easier with three armies – one of them composed of ferocious giants – now vying to conquer the city, and no sign of the Lord Ruler’s hidden cache of atium, the rarest and most powerful allomantic metal.

As the siege of Luthadel tightens, an ancient legend seems to offer a glimmer of hope. But even if it really exists, no one knows where to find the Well of Ascension or what manner of power it bestows (Summary from Goodreads).

There are no words except EPICNESS (I'm pretty sure that's not even a word). There are so many things Vin has to face in this sequel. Not just one army, but freakin' two armies and the koloss, those blue crazy uncontrollable giants, for starters. On top of that, the mist continues to get stronger during the day, and strange things start to occur. People seem to die from a human-shaped form made of mist.

We see a lot of detail with the inner struggles that Vin, Elend, Sazed, and even some of the other crew members face. Vin tries to figure out the "right" way she should be using her power and thinks she is not good enough for Elend.  Elend feels useless next to Vin's awesomeness (can we blame him?).  At times, these detailed inner struggles can make the story slow down to a crawl. I admit, my interest in this book came and went during the majority of it. You might be put off by this, but if you stick through it you'll find that the last 100 or so pages are so packed with awesomeness that you cannot help but love it.  I mean plot twists. Plot twists everywhere.

Seriously, I think I scared my family with my flailing around on the couch.

One of the best things about the Mistborn series so far is the detail of the characters. I can try all I want to describe any of these characters to my family, but I would be talking forever because of the amount of adversity and changes these characters went through. Sometimes my mind goes back to the beginning of the first book when all the characters were first being introduced and think, "My babies were so innocent back then." Then all hell breaks extra loose in this book. I mean there was some crazy stuff in The Final Empire, but shit got real in The Well of Ascension.

Spoilers Ahead!

There is so much, I don't even know where to start or if I'll hit everything I wanted to talk about.  At 590 pages, this book took me two weeks to read due to lots of events going on outside my regular college workload. I guess I'll start with some of the characters.

I will admit, like many other readers of The Well of Ascension, Vin annoyed me. Just a little. I could honestly understand where she was coming from, though. Vin has been trying to trust others more. Along comes Zane, who is more like Vin than anyone else. Of course she would feel a connection with him. But it's those frustrations I felt with her that made it all the more satisfying when Vin finally came to her senses and learned to trust others.

Also, some of my favorite scenes in this book were with her and OreSeur (TenSoon). I thought the interactions between these two were funny. The friendship that grew between them was cute, and I hope that somehow TenSoon will cross paths with Vin again in the next book.

I enjoyed Elend's transformation into a king. I found it enjoyable during scenes where Tindwyl gave him the kick he needed to be more assertive. To be honest, Sazed's point of view didn't interest me much, but in the epic last 100 pages my interest grew tenfold. I'm sad for Sazed that he lost Tindwyl and now doesn't believe in any of the religions he studies. But nope, Sanderson has to kill off characters to destroy my feels. It's the pain that lets me know I enjoyed the book. It means that I cared about the characters enough to die a little inside when they get hurt/die.

Speaking of killing off characters...oh my goodness. My jaw dropped at Club's and Dockson's deaths. Plus Breeze is now going crazy and Marsh turned into some evil Inquisitor. That ending though. It was perfect genius. What better way to end this epic book than with the protagonist accidentally releasing some evil force? 

There is so much more I liked about this book that I probably forgot to mention, so I apologize if I missed a great point that seems obvious to other readers since I'm writing this at 1:30 in the morning. I don't even know what to expect in the next book, except that it will probably be even more crazy and epic.

Title: A Necklace of Souls
Author: R.L. Stedman
Genre: Fantasy
Released December 19th, 2014

Summary

‘A true dream is when the events I see in my sleep have, or will happen. It’s a talent that runs in my family. I was thirteen when I had my first true dream.’

Dana wishes she wasn’t a princess. She’s always being told how to behave, what to wear. There’s a strangeness in the castle – why will no one talk about the Guardian, or the necklace that protects the land? And why does her father look at her with such sorrow?

Welcome to A Necklace of Souls: a story of love and loss, of shattered lives and desperate hopes. In the Kingdom of the Rose, bravery is not always measured by strength and magic is real, if only one has the courage to dream (Summary from Goodreads).


Purchase now from Amazon!

Character Introduction - Will:

Will was twelve years old when the plague began. Winter in North Wales is always a dreary, damp season, but that year seemed particularly harsh. The winds blew strong and cold and the people were reluctant to leave their homes. Will’s parents, the town bakers, still kept their shop open but now customers arrived singly, and said little while waiting for their bread. 

As the plague spread, Will’s familiar world began to change. First, the school closed. Normally this might have been something to be celebrated. But not now, not with the town locked in fear, and no one going in or out. Then the fishing boats at the quayside didn’t sail, either. Eventually even the church shut its doors. But by then the plague had spread, growing like a big black cloud, until it seemed to smother all the light. And in the bakery Will and his parents lay ill, unable to move, unable even to think, as the world spun slowly about them. 

Will didn’t remember much of the illness, just a vague recall of heat and burning and endless, heaving nausea. Like seasickness but far, far worse – the sort of seasickness you might feel if the ship on which you were sailing had suddenly caught alight. For days he tossed about, thrashing his head on his pillow, calling for Ma. For anyone. But no one came. 

 Finally Will woke and lay blinking at the ceiling. His throat felt thick and tight, as though he’d been screaming for the longest time. Outside the world sounded eerily quiet; no shop bells, no wagon wheels creaking. No horse’s hooves, or people calling to one another across the street. Only the distant wash of the waves and the creaking of the shop sign in the wind. 

All his life, Will remembered the feeling of waking into silence, the bitter knowledge of his loneliness in a wide, wide world. Because after the plague, everything had changed.

Creating My TBR Jar

Hey guys! So I wasn't able to finish The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson yet, but I'm almost there at over 60% done! I've been super busy with events outside of my normal college workload, plus I have family coming in from out of town.  Since I couldn't do a review, I decided to do something fun and share with you all my TBR Jar!
A To-Be-Read (TBR) Jar is used to choose books when I'm not quite sure what I want to read next. I've pretty much planned out what I'm reading up to August, but I thought I'd make one anyway because they're so cute! It's hard not to be persuaded after looking through every picture on Pinterest.

Even though my jar isn't particularly beautiful like some of the ones I've seen, I thought I'd share with you some of the materials I used to decorate my jar.  I linked the websites (if applicable), as well.

1. Hinged Jar - I got one from The Container Store's website. There's something about hinged jars that I just really like.  I get a vintage vibe when I see them.

2. Blue Burlap Paper - I bought this from Etsy which came in a convenient roll, so I only needed to cut it length-wise.

3. White Ribbon - I went to my local JoAnn Fabrics store to pick this up.

4. Cute Clothespins - I bought pre-decorated clothespins from Etsy.  The seller has a ton of different designs.

5. Colorful Paper - I've had some durable colorful paper sitting around for a few years.

6. Paperclips - I didn't want to just fold my paper strips when placing them inside the jar.  I thought the quickest way for me was to use paperclips to keep the folded papers shut.

7. Hot Glue Gun - I used this to obviously glue the ribbon, burlap, and clothespin in place.


After cutting the paper into strips, I write the name and author of the books I want to include in my jar.  Then I fold and secure the paper with a paperclip.







Once I'm ready to pull out a "winning" book title, I'll use the clothespin to display it.





So, that's my TBR Jar! I hope I inspired you guys to make one too!

Book Blitz! True Calling by Siobhan Davis

 
I am hosting this blitz on behalf of Lola's Blog Tours
 
 
Title: True Calling
Author: Siobhan Davis
Genre: Dystopian, Science Fiction, Romance
Released August 1st, 2014
 
Summary

Planet Novo, nestled in space twelve hundred miles above the surface of the Earth, is the new home of 17 year old Cadet Ariana Skyee. Confused by the government-sanctioned memory erase and distressed at her impending forced marriage and motherhood, Ariana’s plans for the future are thrown into complete disarray.

As the traumatic events within her family life enfold, Ariana grows increasingly alarmed at the authorities apparent pre-occupation with her and feels progressively more isolated and alone.

Her growing feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify as the recently announced pageant, ‘The Calling’, gets underway. Struggling to comprehend the continuous, inexplicable dreams of the mysterious Zane, discovering the past helps shape her future, with devastating personal consequences (Summary from Goodreads).


Excerpt

“That’s my all-time favorite song. I hope you don’t mind that I was listening. You have a lovely voice.” I feel heat rising in my cheeks. 

“Thanks,” he says with genuine appreciation. “Maybe I can serenade you in private sometime.” He winks at me, and I blush to the roots of my hair. 

Purposefully ignoring his comment, we travel together to our rooms, engaging in harmless chit-chat on the way. 

“Um, bye,” I say, moving toward my door. 

“I’ll wait for you,” he says without hesitation. 

“I’m not sure how long I’ll be. Fenuka has an endless list of modifications in mind, and I could be a while. I’m pretty sure you’ll be in and out in seconds,” I say, jealously scanning his perfect face. 

“I hope she doesn’t modify you too much—I think you’re perfect just the way you are.” He gazes at me strangely, and an alien fluttering feeling builds in my chest.

“Okay, see you after,” I blurt out, stumbling into my room. Maybe he does want to be more than friends? I wish I were more experienced with boys so that I could understand his intentions more clearly. I grimace inwardly when I think of how much of an expert I’ll most likely be in a few months time.

Today is the last day True Calling is free! So make sure to grab your copy from Amazon!

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson


Title: The Final Empire (Mistborn #1)
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Released July 31st, 2007
Bought on Kindle
Rating: 5/5

Summary

Once, a hero arose to save the world. A young man with a mysterious heritage courageously challenged the darkness that strangled the land.

He failed.

For a thousand years since, the world has been a wasteland of ash and mist ruled by the immortal emperor known as the Lord Ruler. Every revolt has failed miserably.

Yet somehow, hope survives. Hope that dares to dream of ending the empire and even the Lord Ruler himself. A new kind of uprising is being planned, one built around the ultimate caper, one that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the determination of an unlikely heroine, a street urchin who must learn to master Allomancy, the power of a Mistborn (Summary from Goodreads).


Whoa.  Just whoa.  I cannot express how much I loved this book.  From the very beginning, I was intrigued with this world where ashes fall from the sky, the sun is red, oppressed people known as skaa work relentlessly for the nobles, and an unsympathetic Lord Ruler has, at the risk of sounding redundant, ruled for a thousand years. 

Even more awesome was the magic system.  This magic known as Allomancy allows certain people, mostly nobles, to "burn" metals and gives them powers.  Mistings can utilize only one type of metal, thus one type of power.  Mistborns, however, can harness the power of all the Allomantic metals.  After one of the main characters, Kelsier, suffers the loss of a loved one, he seeks to take down the Lord Ruler with the help of his thieving crew and sixteen-year-old Vin, who he trains to use her Allomantic magic.

Spoilers Ahead!

Like I said above, I was drawn into this story from the beginning.  This was definitely one of the largest books I've read in a while at 647 pages, and although there was a lot of world building which could get a little dry at times, I was so hooked to this world that it really didn't matter.  If anything, the world building made the story even better because I could easily visualize the images in my head.  The scenes where Kelsier and Vin used their Allomancy were so well written that I enjoyed every single minute of it. 

I also liked the way the magic system was introduced.  An explanation wasn't just dropped on me all at once.  I enjoyed trying to figure out for myself how the magic system worked a little at a time.  It added to the mysterious vibe of the story.  Then when Kelsier started training Vin, I felt like I was there learning with her.

This may be my immature teenager-ness coming out, but when Elend and Vin met, I started reading this book crazy fast.  That's the moment when I knew I was going to love this book.  For some reason, I really like books where one character in a relationship has to hide some awesome part of her from the guy, like how Cinder had to hide the fact that she's a cyborg from Kai in the first book of the Lunar Chronicles (also one of my all-time favorite series).  That dramatic irony got me excited in all of Elend and Vin's scenes together.

Also, it's been awhile since a character's death has made me feel genuinely sad.  When Kelsier died, I literally made dying animal noises and I think I actually went through the five stages of grief.  I was in complete disbelief at first, telling myself "nahhhh he's gonna come back from the dead everything's all right," but obviously he didn't and I continued to make said animal noises, letting all my family and friends know that a main character had just died (to which I received blank stares).

I liked the character development, as well.  Vin overcame most of her paranoia and distrust of others, and Keslier became less selfish and obviously was willing to die for the revolution. 

The detail in the world-building and magic system was amazing, and I can't wait to start the next book to learn more about Vin's powers and Lord Ruler's warning before he died.  I have a feeling that this "Deepness" might still be around...
Seriously, I liked this book so much I put fanart as the background on my phone.

The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University By Kevin Roose

 
Title: The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University
Author: Kevin Roose
Released March 26th, 2009
Bought on Kindle
Rating: 5/5
 
Summary

As a sophomore at Brown University, Kevin Roose didn't have much contact with the Religious Right. Raised in a secular home by staunchly liberal parents, he fit right in with Brown's sweatshop-protesting, fair-trade coffee-drinking, God-ambivalent student body. So when he had a chance encounter with a group of students from Liberty University, a conservative Baptist university in Lynchburg, Virginia, he found himself staring across a massive culture gap. But rather than brush the Liberty students off, Roose decided to do something much bolder: he became one of them.

Liberty University is the late Rev. Jerry Falwell's proudest accomplishment - a 10,000-student conservative Christian training ground. At Liberty, students (who call themselves "Champions for Christ") take classes like Introduction to Youth Ministry and Evangelism 101. They hear from guest speakers like Mike Huckabee and Karl Rove, they pray before every class, and they follow a 46-page code of conduct called "The Liberty Way" that prohibits drinking, smoking, R-rated movies, contact with the opposite sex, and witchcraft. Armed with an open mind and a reporter's notebook, Roose dives into life at Bible Boot Camp with the goal of connecting with his evangelical peers by experiencing their world first-hand.

Roose's semester at Liberty takes him to church, class, and choir practice at Rev. Falwell's Thomas Road Baptist Church. He visits a support group for recovering masturbation addicts, goes to an evangelical hip-hop concert, and participates in a spring break mission trip to Daytona Beach, where he learns how to convert bar-hopping co-eds to Christianity. Roose struggles with his own faith throughout, and in a twist that could only have been engineered by a higher power, he conducts what would turn out to be the last in-depth interview of Rev. Falwell's life. Hilarious and heartwarming, respectful and thought-provoking, Kevin Roose's embedded report from the front lines of the culture war will inspire and entertain believers and non-believers alike (Summary from Goodreads).
 
Spoilers Ahead!
 
I don't typically read nonfiction books, but I had to choose one out of six books to write a book report for my World Religions class. I chose this one out of the others because it looked to be the most relatable and funny just by the summary.
 
I really enjoyed this book for a few reasons. The author, Kevin Roose, is a great writer, and it amazes me that he could write so well when he started this book at age 19. The way he wrote made his experience very relatable, and I feel like his reactions to what he experienced would be similar to my own, even though I am Roman Catholic and go to a moderate Catholic university. Although the lives of Liberty students aren't all that different from the lives of students attending a secular college, I found the differences to be fascinating, such as the strict rules of Liberty and the fact that students pray so often for each other. Although I also disagreed with some of the ideologies of Liberty students and professors, I have to admire how genuinely kind they were, and I like that the students were so supportive of one another. Seriously, I wish students were that bubbly in my university.
 
I also admired that Roose came into this experience with an open mind. He decided to go to Liberty University just to learn about the life of evangelical students even though he came from a liberal Quaker family. I don't think a lot of people would be able to just give up a semester of their life to blend in with people that differ so much ideologically. Roose didn't always agree with the politics of Liberty, but he made every effort to participate in more activities than I ever would, and he even made some meaningful friendships along the way.
 

By the end of this book, I felt like I had been there with Roose on his journey, and I could completely understand his mixed feelings on Jerry Falwell and religion in general. I could tell that Roose almost sympathized with Falwell when he received so much bashing from the media after his death. Roose recognized both the good and bad of what Falwell did in his life, which makes it difficult for one to truly judge what kind of person Falwell really was. Roose summed him up nicely as "a complicated man." I think what I learned most from this book was that everyone is human and struggles with their beliefs, even the hardcore Evangelical Christians at Liberty University.

I truly enjoyed every moment of this book. Roose's commentary had me laughing throughout the majority of it. When I finished it, I got that strange feeling that I typically get when I know I've read a good book.

Genre: Dytopian
Released April 7th, 2015
 
Summary
 
A thrilling, futuristic sci-fi novel set in a unique and thought-provoking world, from author Shannon Duffy.

Desiree Six (because she was born on a Friday) believes in everything the Protectorate stands for. She likes the safety and security of having her entire life planned out—her career, her mate, even the date of her death. She doesn't even think to question when Darian, her childhood friend and neighbor, is convicted of murdering his parents. They had seemed like such a loving family. But if he was convicted, then he must have done it.

Then Darian shows up in her room late one night. He has escaped from the Terrorscape—a nightmare machine used to punish all Noncompliants—and needs Desiree's help. What he tells her rocks her world to its core and makes her doubt everything she's ever been told. With this new information, will Desiree and Darian be able to escape the Protectorate before it's too late? (Summary from
Goodreads)
 
Author Interview
 
What inspired you to write your first book?

Definitely my son Gabriel. I wanted to write a story for him that he would love and one where he got to be the hero of the story.

Do you have a specific writing style?

I’m sort of between a planner and a pantser. I like to do a rough outline and then think it through in my head like a movie, jotting notes as I go. And then when I’m in the writing process I need quiet. Oh, and lots of coffee.
 
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?

Yes, it was my high school English teacher Mr. Rowsell. He definitely had a huge impact on me. I really took an interest in creative writing and wanted to impress him. When he read some of my
things aloud in class, I was hooked. He was an amazing teacher and influence on me.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Read a lot, make other writer friends who you can exchange your work with, and don’t give up if it’s something you really love.
 
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you sooo much for reading my story and I really hope you enjoyed it! Readers are the best
kinds of people, aren’t they?

What genre do you consider your book(s)?

Sci-fi and dystopian mix I would say.
 
While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters?

I always try to put myself straight into the characters' heads. I need to feel what they’re feeling to try to make my words feel authentic.

Title: Reluctant Prince
Author: Dani-Lyn Alexander
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Released November 3rd, 2014

Summary

Betrayal lies cloaked in shadow.

Seventeen year old Ryleigh Donnovan is certain her life is cursed. Nothing ever goes smoothly, and her first job interview is no exception. An earthquake rocks the building, sending Ryleigh on a frantic search for her younger sister, a search which lands her in the hospital. Terrified they ll push her for answers she can t afford to give, Ryleigh flees with a mysterious stranger.

Jackson Maynard is about to be ordained as a Death Dealer, a warrior for the Kingdom of Cymmera, but first he must pass one more test. When he fails to acquire the human girl the prophet has chosen, he s forced to stand trial for treason. Banished from his realm, he seeks out the girl from the vision, Ryleigh Donnovan, and together they embark on a journey to save his dying kingdom (Summary from Goodreads).

Excerpt


Ryleigh stood. This couldn’t be happening. With only a few months left until graduation, she didn’t want to be forced to drop out, but what else could she do? “Look, Mr. Jacobs, can’t you just—” Vertigo assailed her. The room rocked, and she grabbed the desk.

Mr. Jacobs grabbed the back of his chair. His eyes mirrored her panic. Books flew from the shelves. Glass shattered.

She had to get to Mia.

She turned to run. The building bucked, and she toppled, slamming her knee into the hard wood floor. Pain shot up her leg. She grabbed the chair to pull herself up, but the next wave threw her back down. She tried to regain her footing, but someone yanked her to the ground.

“Stay down.” Mr. Jacobs shoved her forward. He crawled beside her, half pushing, half dragging her toward the door.

Debris pelted her back, shoulders, and head. How could she have left Mia? Tears blurred her vision.

“If it’s an earthquake, it should stop any minute. Just keep crawling toward the door.”

Desperately wishing she could cover her ears to block the screaming, she clawed forward. Her knee dragged behind her, pain pulsing with each movement. Falling apart wouldn’t help matters. She had to get to Mia.

Ryleigh crawled through the doorway, into utter chaos. People trying to push through the mess, others huddled in corners shielding their heads. An injured woman cried as she rocked back and forth clutching her arm. A man crouched over her.

Fear and disorientation held Ryleigh immobile.
