Library Literature: Snippit

Now that I'm working at the library I find that I have a lot more time to read. This is because I have about three to five minutes between helping people at the service desk. Trying to do homework in that amount of time is too fustrating, but I can read a few sentances if I'm lucky and it's easy to find my spot. All this reading makes me HAPPY!  Why? I used to read about a book a month...on the weekend...when I'm actually at school....when I'm not doing something else, like studying. Yeah, kind of fustrating. Now though, I'm getting through about a book a week. Did you hear that? I said I AM READING A BOOK A WEEK!!!!!! *sigh* It's wonderful. So, here's my proposal:

PROPOSAL:
I'm going to do a fifteen word snippit on the book I'm reading along with a thumbs up or a thumbs down
(or a thumbs sideways if that's possible).

  • It will be called: Library Literature: Snippit/Reveal.

  • It will be when I'm only part of the way through the book and HAVE NOT read the ending.

  • It will be short and sweet. 15 words no more, no less and in my own language, which some may not consider proper English (I call it fun). 

  • They will probably be YA but not necessarily.

  • It will happen on WEDNESDAY'S. (Except today. Today is an exception...hopefully I can keep this Wednesday schedule...no promises (It's just, I know me....very well).

  • On the Wednesday after I do a snippit. I'll review my final thoughts on the book from the week before and introduce a new book with a new snippit. I'll also let you know if it keeps it's thumbs up/down/sideways rating or if it's changed.
Book this week is:
Title: Beautiful Creatures
Authors: Kami Garcia and Margret Stohl
Currently on page: 102

Snippit:
Dark. Yet with some light. A girl. What the heck? IT'S HER! Aww, they're talking.
Rating:
Thumbs UP! I can't wait to figure this novel out. I hope it's as good as it has been thus far.

You tell me. Have you read Beautiful Creatures? Is the ending good? Is it really good? Do you like this snippit/reveal idea? Let me know in the comments!

I've read the book and loved it, don't rush the ending though, savour it.

Such a cute feature! I really liked this book, though I was totally confused the whole way through. Hope you keep liking it!

YAY! I'm so happy your reading Beautiful Creatures! It's amazing and the ending rocks, you won't be dissapointed! Plus, the sequel, Beautiful Darkness, comes out in like two weeks, so you can pick up reading right where you left off in book 1! :D <3
