The Indigo King by James A. Owen

Hey again guys! It's been A LOOOONG time since I wrote a blog, but I got loads more coming your way, so yeah. So here we are again, and this time it's the third book in The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica, The Indigo King by James A. Owen. This series isn't all that well known, I learnt about it because the first book Here, There Be Dragons was our English Novel Study, and some of my friends and I got hooked and read until the third...only if I could get my hands on the fourth!
Anyway, this book was different than the previous two books, because it not only included another character, but it excluded one of the main characters...sort of. Charles wasn't there the entire book until the end, but there was his parallel-world-look-alike in the book who was with them (Jack and John) for the adventure, so he was "kinda" there. But he does play an important role in this book, as he becomes...Geu Ahriadn vo Tfanol (HA! U cannot decode it unless, you have read the book and therefore KNOWS what he becomes!)
They do include another famous character though, Hugo (not gonna give away his whole name, and if you REALLY wanna know, search up the possible famous Hugo's in the 1900's) and it's funny how he does get involved with this...yeah. It was also kinda different because instead of Tummeler, (I don't remember if he's in the 2nd) they have his...decedents, well, which kinda fits, 'cause it's around 20 or 15 something years since the first adventure. 
The thing I LOVED about the book was the ALLUSIONS. I, of course, Read ALOT, and I was so excited ever since the first book of the different characters/items from Mythology and other Books come into the story (or are at least mentioned), and I'm gonna give away a few: The Nautalis (I think I spelled that wrong), The Holy Grail and a certain Wardrobe. I'll leave you guys to figure out what they are, if you might not know, one or two of them...whatever. 
This book is really intense, and will shock you and keep you suspended at different times in the books. James A. Owen is a REALLY talented author, and I cannot wait for the rest of The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica! OH and look out for upcoming reviews: Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard (Books 2-7), Evermore and Blue Moon by Alyson Noël, City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, School's Out-Forever by James Patterson, Ever by Gail Carson Levine, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Last Straw and Dog Days by Jeff Kinney, The Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer, The Tale of Despereaux by Kate Decamillo, The Wyrm King by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black AND The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan. WHEW! GOTTA LOT TO WRITE, so bye for now!

Why I Live Underground (Written in the Perspective of Hades) by Caroline Gao

Hey! This is a poem which one of my besties Caroline Gao wrote :) it's kinda like Percy Jackson and the Olympians, for all the gods, in this poem are crazyyy just like the book, although they are a little different, but there are some similarities. The poem is written in Hades perspective, as he doesn't live in Mount Olympus, and as you all probably know, lives in the Underworld, 'cause he's the God of the Dead. And you'll probably get the connection between...just read it! ENJOY!!

Why I Live Underground
In the Perspective of Hades
By Caroline Gao

Mount Olympus, way up high
through the clouds and into the sky
there they were, the thrones of heaven,
in the sky, there were two and eleven.

They were shooting stars that brightly shined
and were worshipped by all of mankind
to us they all seemed very kind
but do you know what happens behind

our backs? well now let me tell you
because you clearly have no clue
astonishing secrets, unpleasant sounds
theres a reason I live underground.

Zeus is just about as mighty
as an acne outburst on Aphrodite
this guy still sleeps with a teddy
tell me, how old is he already?

Hera and Zeus always fight,
and Dionysus drinks all night
crash! smash! shattered glass galore
like sparkling crystals on the floor

Aphrodite may seem beautiful
but it wasn't all that wonderful
seeing her trying to lose all that weight
for two whole centuries she hardly ate

Apollo says he can play the lyre
but inside he really is a liar
the lyre plays itself, thats how it was charmed
so Apollo's weak fingers could stay unharmed

and since when was Hestia so pure?
countless flirtatious looks I endured.
how old is this girl? 12? 13?
it'd be better off if she were clean.
Athena and Ares would always fight
the Gods of War were no delight
all day, all night, through the afternoon
like big bad balloon-headed buffoons

Hephaestus and Poseidon were the worst pair
for everyday I had to bear
with their loud and noisy ways
from hammering and hurricanes, couldn't sleep for days. 

and don't get me started with Demeter.
they say she's nature's thermometer.
she's still holding a grudge on me...
I think its because of Persephone.

and now you have finally found
the reason why I live underground
poor old Hades did nothing wrong,
Mount Olympus just isn't where I belong.

The illustrations that Caroline drew were really funny (too bad I can't get them on here!) and it's really funny how she portrayed the gods! I loved this poem cause I can understand it, I mean cause if you've read Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan, or learnt Greek History and Mythology, you're sure to know about what the Gods and their weakness' and powers are. Thanks so much Caroline, and cheerio for now!
By the Way, I cannot wait for The Kane Chronicles, a new series by Rick Riordan on Egyptian Mythology! Look Forward to future reviews: Missing You by Meg Cabot; Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins; The Indigo King by James A. Owen; More Pretty Little Liars (book 2-7) by Sara Shepard; Evermore and Blue Moon by Alyson Noël; City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare; Rumors by Anna Godbersen; and Princess Forever (The Princess Diaries book 10) by Meg Cabot! WHEW! Gotta a lot to review, so come back for later! Bye!

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Bonjour! welcome back, and I'm gonna do a review on Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard! I've already read this book, but here it goes!
This book, like the rest of the series, was INTENSE, GRIPPING and HAUNTING (well, not really) but I was definitely hooked after reading the prologue and the first few chapters, and  there was something there, kinda like a magnet that made my eyes and hands not leave the book until it was done, and then I HAD to grab onto the next one! and the next one, and the next and so on!
I was really surprised with the type of people Sara Shepard put into the book. Each of the four girls were really different. Spencer was the "A" Student, the Role-Model, Teachers Pet. Aria was more like the Teacher's love, but the most "normal" out of the group. Hannah the Bulimic and the brattiest one in the group. UGH...she thinks too much about being popular! Emily is one of the characters that is nice, but she's well, different from other girls, but she's a swimmer, so GO SWIMMING! YEAH!
It's weird though, how some characters ONLY come in the first book or a few books, and then they completely disappear and there's only the slightest mention of them kinda annoys me cause some of the characters were kinda good. I mean what happened to Erza, who was one of Aria's main problems? he kinda disappeared. Same with Wren and Sean! They went away! 
I love how in every book, you think that one person's DEFINITELY "A" but, something happens to that person and then there's another person and so on and on. I was so SURE that it was Alison in the first book, but it proved me wrong and that = ADDICTION to these books!
Sara Shepard has done REALLY well with her first (?) book series, and it's a HUGE hit, many girls will soon be addicted as the last book, Wanted, comes out this June! I CANNOT WAIT!
Well, bye for now guys, and more PLL will follow up after! 

Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont

HULLO and welcome back to another episode of "The Blog of a Readaholic" with yours truly as your host. Anyway, besides the cheesy introduction, this book, Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont is a fairly recent release, and this being one of Gramont's first teen books (as I believe), it's amazing and awesome and can be enjoyed by readers that are teens and adults.

Sixteen-year-old Sydney Biggs is a “good kid” --- smart, pretty, self-aware. No one doubts that she’ll go far in life. But lately her mother worries that Sydney is wandering down the wrong path and getting all caught up in petty teenage rebellion and shenanigans. When Sydney and her best friend, Natalia, “borrow” a car to go to a party and then get escorted home by the police, their parents pack them up and ship them off to a hard-love wilderness camp to stop this behavior before it gets out of hand, before things go too far. The problem is, they already have.
Sydney the “good kid” is pregnant. 
In the wilds of Canada --- where the girls are to spend the next four weeks canoeing, camping, and foraging for food --- time is ticking because Sydney isn’t sure what she wants to do about this baby. And she certainly isn’t expecting the other heady issues that will confront her as she forges friendships with her adventure mates, including a guy who makes it no secret that he is a major thug, and a teen television heartthrob with a secret of his own, not to mention her own best friend --- who is very adamant about what Sydney should do.

This is a book that deals with issues that some teens are dealing with today. Pregnancy. How to confront your parents about it, what action should be taken and to avoid getting pregnant in the first place! It's kinda like the book What Kind of Love? The Diary of a Pregnant Teenager by Sheila Cole. It's got the same ending (I AM NOT GIVING IT AWAY!) and it's similar for both main characters have no idea what to do and rely on friends and family to give support, although the family isn't very helpful in both books.
This book also has a very clear message to teens, and that is to be careful and think about what future you want to have before you jump then fall. It also deals with people from different backgrounds and views, and friendships and having fun. This book also taught me (well imaginatively) that camping and canoeing is AWESOME and yeah :). With this book you'll definitely be changed, in some way, because it kinda just puts you off and makes you think about your future, and what you expect from it.
Other than that, I have a NEGATIVE note to this book. I so wanted Sydney and _______ (not  giving away names, although I do know who I'm talking about!) to end up together, but it was something about the person, that changed everything... :( how sad...they could have been perfect! 
Anywaaayy, that's all I have for this book. If You are a Member of PULSEIT this book is available to read online 'till the end of this month (April) and if you aren't a member, JOIN QUICKLY AND READ! BYE!

Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer

Hey Guys...even though I have a long standing battle (well, not really) with the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer (as you can see from my rant - earlier post) once I kinda think about it, its not that bad. I mean as in the way Stephanie Meyer writes her books and's mainly just the craze that makes me oppose these books. But anyway, here's a review for Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. BUT first things first, summary!

When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?
To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs. Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating, and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella's life--first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse--seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed...forever? The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.

What I really like about, not only the book, but the series, is that it's actually focused on "stages" of Bella's life. Like, the series doesn't continue with Bella and Edward/Jacob being girlfriend and boyfriend, but they actually get married...which is a pretty huge jump. This actually is good, because we know how Bella chooses in the end, instead of going on and off with Edward and Jacob and making this a super-long series with readers trying to catch up with who Bella's with. Stephanie Meyer definitely makes it to a point that Bella is going to marry Edward around the 2nd-3rd book, and they of course, get married in the 4th. It isn't like (to make an analogy) like the House of Night Series (Luv the series though!) by PC and Kristin Cast, where Zoey keeps going between Heath, Erik, Loren and Stark (GO TEAM STARK!) and we're all hanging at the edge of our seats wondering who she'll end up with. Stephanie Meyer does keep it to the point, but of course, adds in suspense to make the reader wonder.
In Breaking Dawn, I could kinda guess what was gonna definitely happen. Bella was gonna turn into a Vamp FOR SURE and was most likely gonna end up with Edward...which she did. But it did have things that came out of the blue. Charlie finding out about werewolves for instance, even though I was pretty sure he would find out about Vamps though, that was one thing that jumped out. And OF COURSE Renesmee. I didn't expect a half-human half-vamp child to appear in this book...but I was expecting some sort of child or the other (I really had no idea what it would be). Also the joining of other vampires was like, different because it showed the unique vamps and the different "tribes/clans" of Vamps in Stephanie Meyer's world.
Things I didn't like about Breaking Dawn. WELL. I'll admit this was one of my faves from the Twilight Saga (right before [along with Twilight] I kinda had fallen in love with Taylor Lautner and then preferred New Moon and Twilight as my faves). Well anyway, one thing that I definitely didn't like was the fact that, there WAS. NO. VAMP. WAR. I was so excited, cause if you've read earlier posts, you'll kinda know that I love Fantasy Wars (Books and Movies) so I was BUMMED when there wasn't anything. Because seriously, they gathered a huge amount of Vamps to go against the Volturi (did I spell that right?) and nothing really happened except for discussion, Bella's shield and blah blah blah. It was kinda a really boring way to end the series (for now). Another thing I didn't like about Breaking Dawn was that Jacob Black fell in love. With a CHILD. That's totally high on the creepy and weird scale 'cause normal people do not, and I repeat NOT, fall in Love with a fast-aging child, especially ones that was the girl's you-loved daughter. Yeah, that definitely was weird.
Well, anyway, I have commented enough on Breaking Dawn, and if you haven't read the Twilight Saga, it's definitely something that you HAVE to read. Don't be a wimp...and make sure you don't get caught in the Twilight Craze, 'cause once you get in, it's really hard to get out. Well other than that, I HAVE to get a copy of The Host, Stephanie Meyer's other novel-book thing and of course, the Eclipse Novella: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Bye till next post!

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Wassup People! Here I am again, with The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins! This book was sooo intense and kept me hanging on till the very end, and it just made me even more wanna read the next book! BLURB:
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel, and it keeps the Districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before--and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity, and life against love.

This book was wait BEYOND that. It was like no other book I've ever read, but some parts were similar to the short story, The Lottery and it was like a movie. Action. Romance. Violent Deaths. What more could you ask for? It was so cute though with Peeta (again, seriously I love him) and Katniss, although it was so mean of what she thought she was doing right, but might end up hurting him...y'all understanding what I'm trying to say? don't bother answering cause even I'm not sure.
When you're reading the Hunger Games, I felt as if I was an audience member or NO. Even being part of these violent, bloodthirsty games. It was as if I felt as if that these games were the only basis of my survival when I was reading this book. I wanted to get through and know what happens so badly, I felt I was fighting for my life. Huh, so much for getting caught up in a book eh?
I wanna read the 2nd book, Catching Fire, REAAAALLLLYYY badly! I heard it was so emotional from a bunch of people, but it would have even been better to read it immediately after reading the 1st book. So that's a tip for those of you who haven't read this book yet, READ THEM together...not so far apart. And I also recommend reading The Lottery (it should be available online) and seeing how the connection between these two things is. 
I gotta go now, and finish a few other things, but be sure to come back for these reviews (hopefully) coming up soon: Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer; Hunted by PC and Kristin Cast; and maybe even Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins! so come back for those (it's not like I'm going anywhere soon though :P) and bye for now! 

Tempted by PC and Kristin Cast

Hey Guys! So, I finished Tempted by PC and Kristin Cast, the last-currently-readable-until-next-tuesday of the House of Night Series! It was AMAING and whoosh! some things were so unexpected it completely threw me's true! NOTE: CONTAINS SPOILERZ but here's a blurb first:
So…you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break.  Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang.  Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions.  Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings.  Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal.  Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn’t go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her.  Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul?  Find out in the next spectacular installment in the House of Night Series, Tempted.
This book was fully packed with a whole lotta new things so I was like OMG I DIDN'T see that coming! and I WAS SO HAPPY when Erik and Zoey broke up!! I was like YESS!!! IN UR FACE BOSSY-PANTS!! (okay, technically I didn't really say that, but I meant SOMETHING like that) so yeah, but that leaves Zoey with the difficulty between choosing her Hottie-Football Playin' human boyfriend Heath, and the TOTALLY drop-down-dead gorgeous Red Vampyre Stark (Go TEAM STARK!). At the end though, it kinda looks like she has an only option, but I'm not giving the end away :P. GODS, with Neferet coming back, it seems like it had been so long ago with her in this book series! and BLEH Kalona BLEH (again) comes back and I'm like, seriously, who'd fall in love with a guy with wings?
And Zoey isn't the only one with issues with boys it seems like. It surprised me how fast Neferet moved from Loren Blake to KALONA, in, I believe, one or something books. Kinda like Zoey, but not quite... and OOOOO!! Stevie Ray is also another person who I wanna know more what happens between her a Rephaim? because if u read the book, it does get a little, well juicier...and I cannot wait! it's weird though, but not gonna, again describe and tell why!
One REALLY weird part (and this is really random how I can STILL remember this) is when Zoey's Grandma tries imitating a teen, by saying something how only girls can focus on Erik because "he's, as you girls say, so hot!" I mean, seriously, what Grandma says hot when they're trying to imitate a teen? that part just stuck to my brain...just a little too weird. It's also kinda annoying how conveniently someone has an item, a new affinity, or a JET PLANE so that everyone's saved! HURRAY! Not that I don't like the books or anything, it's just a little bit annoying.
This book is really good, and different from what I thought it to be. Since Twilight, most Vampire books had been about Girls falling in love with Vampires and all that, with the exception of a few books, like The Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan, Vampirates by Justin Somper, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare and books like that...(I love these books and totally recommend them btw).
K, guys that's all I gotta say and I cannot WAIT for the release of Burned, the 7th book in the House of Night series by PC and Kristin Cast. I have SO MANY questions, like What is the Otherworld? Who (and how) is Zoey gonna end up with? What happens at the Vampire Council to what Kalona did? Will Rephaim choose to be with Stevie Ray or go back to where he came from? What about the other Red Fledgelings? so many questions left unanswered...until the next book comes out. April 27th! Cannot wait! Bye!

Brisingr by Christopher Paolini

Hey! I'm bak, and I'm gonna talk about the 3rd book in the Inheritance Cycle, Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. Yes, I've actually read it before (AND I got it SIGNED!!!). Here's a blurb:

OATHS SWORN . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide.

Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.
First is Eragon's oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength - as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices - choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.
Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

This book was a little...well, foggy to me. Mostly because I couldn't really remember the last book, Eldest cause I had kinda read it like, what? 3 or something years ago (YIKES!) so, yeah, it was kinda confusing, but I had my friend Hanaa clarify things up for me, so it was good :) but yeah I totally have to re-read the series...after reading other books, as I have a whole load, of course :P.
From what I remember (Yes, my brain's a little, well, tired at this time, so bear with me) the ending of the book was really exciting, because it had a battle in it and LUV Fantasy Battles both in movies and books! YEAH!! I also remember that there was a Dwarf God(?) from what I remember from Christopher Paolini's speech at the beginning, and because I can remember, I'm sure that was a good part too! (sorry guys, a little slow and my review is gonna, yeah, suck) But there were some parts which were actually a little boring (no offense!) but it was harder to understand and referred to Eldest and lo and behold, CURSE my foggy memory, I couldn't remember those parts and had to kinda skim through them :(.
The Inheritance Cycle is DEFINITELY one of the books that I love ALOT, and I TOTALLY cannot wait for the next and last one to come out! (Thank Gods he didn't go with the original plan and make the 3rd the last, cause that would have been REALLY confusing!) friends and I are totally hanging on and will jump with excitement when the last book is announced...I gotta make my younger sister read these books, because they. ARE. Amazing. Totally a different world, and kind of like Lord of the Rings except for younger readers to enjoy. I really wanna do a review on Percy Jackson and Diary of a Wimpy Kid and good stuff like that...stay tuned for more later! Coming up soon: Tempted by PC and Kristen Cast (read for the first time); The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer.

Victoria and the Rogue by Meg Cabot

Hey Again! and here's another book review on Victoria and the Rogue by Meg Cabot and out of Nicola and the Viscount and Victoria and the Rogue, I have to admit that this was better of the two. Here's a Blurb first:

Growing up in far-off India, wealthy young heiress Lady Victoria Arbuthnot was accustomed to handling her own affairs—not to mention everyone else’s. But in her sixteenth year, Vicky is unceremoniously shipped off to London to find a husband. With her usual aplomb, however, Lady Victoria gets herself engaged to the perfect English gentleman, even before setting foot on British soil. 

Hugo Rothschild, ninth earl of Malfrey, is everything a girl could want in a future husband: he is handsome and worldly, if not rich. Lady Victoria has everything just as she’d like it. That is, if raffish young ship captain Jacob Carstairs would leave well enough alone.
Jacob’s meddling is nothing short of exasperating, and Victoria is mystified by his persistence. But when it becomes clear that young Lord Malfrey just might not be all that he’s professed to be, Victoria is forced to admit, for the first time in her life, that she is wrong. Not only about her fiancé, but about the reason behind the handsome ship captain’s interference.

Victoria is a strong character and this contrasts to Nicola, who's more poetic and girly...ish. Victoria does things that women at that wouldn't have done, and it's amazing how brave she is in the books...I'm wondering though, is she meant to be based on Queen Victoria? cause Queen Victoria was a strong woman and ruler (she had no men bossing her around for that fact!) and she was titled "Empress of India"....hmmm...I'll have to find out more! and I love how in both of Meg Cabot's novels, they end up with the guy who is more desirable to the readers than the ones that find, well, hot in their perspectives at the beginnings of the books. 
Comparing the two books, it's somehow quite similar. No doubt Meg Cabot did mean to have similar settings and time in history, and that they would end up with whom the main characters wouldn't end up with. But both stories have a bitter fiancé who only wanted Nicola/Victoria for a reason. Lord Sebastian wanted Nicola for her land, and Hugo Rothschild only wanted her for the money. Both had help in kidnapping her and Nicola/Victoria's two real lovers in the end come and save both. The bad thing about both these books being so similar, is that you can expect what's going to happen in the book, NOT that I'm saying that it's not a good book, because it is.
On the other hand, I wish that Meg Cabot had made a series of these books, because I SERIOUSLY think she has a talent for also writing books based in the 1800's. There should be though, more variety in setting, cause both books are MAINLY based in London, England. (yeah true, in Victoria and the Rogue there are some India settings mentioned.) Maybe, y'know something else that would make it interesting, like The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen which was based in Manhattan. Just saying it as a suggestion!
Meg Cabot is an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G writer, as y'all have seen by the previous reviews which most (I believe) is Meg Cabot books :P. Gonna borrow some more Meg Cabot, from my borrowing-from-the-library-and-lending-it-to-me friend, Alex :), so be sure to catch those reviews...someday after I finish the motherload of reading that I have left! anyways, I gotta go finish up homework (groan) and I'll write another blog post, hopefully tomorrow! I'm pretty sure it's gonna be Tempted by PC and Kristen Cast.

Haven of Fables

Hey Again! So for English class (I'm definitely getting ALOT of assignments huh?) we had to write a poem on Fantasy, and since we could write our poems based on fantasy books, I chose a huge fantasy book series that I adore, Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. Here it is!

Haven of Fables
by Me

Far Away, I know a place
where the is not time for manners or grace
Where creatures come out and make schemes
but it's not all as it seems

Fairies claim to be the Queens of Day
Their evil twins, imps, however have nothing to say
Where Dragons and Griffins rule the skies
filling the forest with their cries

Demons locked up in prisons, full of hate
Brownies leave being the things they create
Satyrs sit and secretly watch TV
but Hamadryads are linked to a single tree

Unicorns have never EVER been seen
Centaurs have a horn though, that glosses and gleams
Nacroblix's control the minds of those asleep
while Drumants have been known the crawl and creep

Sirrush's are known to fly, yowl and yap
and an Octobear's tentacles can tightly wrap
Nipsies, though small, are filthy rich
A Stingbulb would make a useful switch

Swamp Hags create false things to lure people in
Be careful what you wish for around a Jinn
Jackalopes are said to be incredibly lucky
being next to a Lich, however, is just plain yucky

Astrids, the owl-humans, are calm and quiet
opposed to Chimeras, who make quite a riot
Viviblix's re-animate the dead, a Zombie Army
While Niads or Water Nymphs are unbelievably smarmy

Dullians have no will, and are under control
The one with an all-seeing eye is a Troll
Dryads are Wood Nymphs and guardians of the Fairy Shrine
When Witched plans are foiled, well, all they do it whine

A Cockatrice will steal a dragon's eggs
Hobgoblins are snake-like creatures with two legs
Fog Giants are powerful, but stupid and slow
The only original golem left is called Hugo

Goblins are tricksters and change their shape
A Karkadann would be hard to escape
Firedrakes are fire-breathing, snakey monsters
The Lamniase is a winged bull among other terrors

Leprechauns and Hermit Trolls stand pretty small
Ogres, on the other hand, are clumsy and tall
Lectoblix's drain the youth of others
Wow, Dwarves sure had hairy mothers!

An Alcetaur is centaur with a moose's body
Harpies though, are totally gaudy
A Lycantrope is another word for werewolves
A Peryton is a flying deer with fangs and sharp hooves

The Revenant guards a magical artifact and radiates fear
Thylacines, also known as Tasmanian Tigers, mysteriously disappear
The Levithan is a sea monster and gatekeeper of Hell
The Milch Cow, Viola, has magical milk, unfortunately not to sell

A Cyclops has only one giant eye
A Kobold's breath will make you cry
A Manticore is a combonation of a lion, man and scorpion's tail
The Sight of a Basalisk is enough to make you wail

An Apparation is a ghost-like image of a person you know
Giants are the largest creatures, but really slow
Pheonix's are re-born from the ashes of which they died
A Whisper Hound is there to guard and seek out those who hide

Roc's are huge, legendary Birds of Prey
A Sphinx has plenty of riddles is you wish to stay
While a Shade is shockingly and scarily undead
The Hydra, a fierce beast, has too many a head

Elves work hard for the Fairy Queen
Wizardry, in this and our world, is like a dream
The Minotaur is a beast, one of a kind
A Phantom will haunt and mess up your mind

Gargoyles are hard, stony and deadly
Sea Serpents do not only exist in story and medley
Shape-Shifters are the equivalent to Harry Potter's Animagi
so that leaves the human race: Kendra, Seth and I

Although this place is very dangerous
but yes, it's truly adventurous
Even though with mysterious and breath-taking creatures;
This is Fablehaven. A Sanctuary for Creatures.

Here's a Blurb of Fablehaven, incase you don't know about the Fablehaven series:

For centuries mystical creatures of all description were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite. Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws keep relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken -- Seth is a bit too curious and reckless for his own good -- powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world, Kendra and Seth must find the courage to do what they fear most.
