Oh My Gosh! Who knew I would be more busy this summer then I was during the school year. I have two volunteer positions and a job. I guess this it what comes with growing up.
I've been writing a lot more. For some reason I've been having this really bad writing slump and it sucks! I've been trying to force myself to write but I just haven't been in the mood. I have ideas (Oh do I have ideas) but lately it's like I have to drag myself to write anything. In the last couple of days though I've gotten a few thousand words down. Which is amazing but it leaves me with less time to read :'(
I also went to summer camp. I was really nervous about going but it was a lot of fun. I made new friends and got closer to a couple girls. But there was no phones allowed and in all honesty I was way to busy to pick up the book I smuggled into my suitcase.
Lets just say that not a whole lot of books have been read at my house lately. I did however finish Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (OMG it's so good) so I'm hoping to get a review for that book out soon.
Right now I'm re-reading The Tigers Curse series by Colleen Houck. I might get to meet her next month so I'm super excited. It's kinda weird though because as much as I like her books I have no post yet on The Tigers Curse. Maybe that will be one of the next posts I do.
And if I'm being honest my writing slump has also affected how often I post here. I would love to do a post every week (that's my brand new plan starting today) but I just keep putting it off. Well no longer! From now on I will be doing a post every week. Even if I have to post about a book I read weeks ago or write a short story. I will try my hardest to make this happen.
Lastly: Does anyone have any book suggestions? I'm running out of things that I really want to read.
Sorry for the short (and probably boring) post. Next week I will defiantly have a book review for you guys.

Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a Fireblood who has concealed her powers of heat and flame from the cruel Frostblood ruling class her entire life. But when her mother is killed trying to protect her, and rebel Frostbloods demand her help to overthrow their bloodthirsty king, she agrees to come out of hiding, desperate to have her revenge.
Despite her unpredictable abilities, Ruby trains with the rebels and the infuriating—yet irresistible—Arcus, who seems to think of her as nothing more than a weapon. But before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to compete in the king’s tournaments that pit Fireblood prisoners against Frostblood champions. Now she has only one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who has taken everything from her—and from the icy young man she has come to love.
My review: 7 out of 5
I love this book! It's well written and has an amazing plotline.
Lets start with characters. First Ruby, a Fireblood with an attitude to match. She's feisty and quick witted. I absolutely adore her. She's such a well developed character as well. It's amazing to watch her develop throughout the book.
Then there is Arcus. A Frostblood who tends to be a little chilly (pun totally intended) and freeze people out. Again, a super well developed character. His change throughout the book is absolutely amazing. Plus, there's a major plot twist when it come to him (no I wont tell you! I don't do spoiler.)
Now it's time with Romantic Plot with Yours Truly. OMG! The romantic plot in this book is to die for! There is so much build up and tension in it that I found myself wanting to scream! (In a good way of course.) The author does an amazing job of balance. It's not romance centered but it has enough to satisfy even me. And the whole Fireblood and Frostblood falling in love thing even though they are supposed to be sworn enemies is fantastic. It's a little cliché but what's a romantic plot without a little bit of cliché things. It's a classic idea and I absolutely adore it. It's a tale as old as time. (If you can't tell I watched Beauty and the Beast recently.)
The plot is fascinating. It's not boring and it's really hard to put down. It kinda seems like a cliché plot but it has it's own unique twist. It actually reminds me a lot of The Last Airbender. So if you like that show/movie this is defiantly the book for you.
Even though this is a pretty cliché book the author puts her own spin on it, making a classic idea her own. I personally love things that seem cliché especially because it makes you think you know what's going to happen and then the author sucker punches you with a plot twist you never saw coming.
I can't wait for the second book because I have to know what happens next. And apparently, according to the description of the second book there's another guy in the picture. The suspense is killing me!
Anyway, this is a fantastic book that I would defiantly recommend.
