Booking Through Thursday #5

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading, hosted in Booking Through Thursday.

The Question:

1. What do you think of reading aloud/being read to? Does it bring back memories of your childhood? Your children’s childhood?
2. Does this affect the way you feel about audio books?
3. Do you now have times when you read aloud or are read to?

The answer: 

I love to read the book myself, when I was young my sister used to read for me, but now I don’t like being read to, it feels to me strange, and it get distractive.
I don’t really like the audiobooks for the same reason, but I like to feel the real book, even if is in a ereader, it’s like the same size, so it makes more real, than listen to just a voice.
I love to read aloud some caracthers in a book, but just for myself, maybe even when I write the reviews, you can hear me talking while thinking for the best way to explain something.

See ya next post!

Why I Started This Book:

First of all, I loved this cover, the eye with the thin pupil drove me in like nothing else. Second in all the blogosphere I read great things about it, and according to the summary it was the kind of book that drives me crazy, so went to my reading list very fast, and I read it in one single day, wow.

Summary:


A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.


Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.


Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will’s dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She’ll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

Caracters:

My Thoughts:

Jacind Jones is very special! Her whole life has been played and selected by the elders of her village, because of what she is. Jacinda is a fire breather draki, she is powerful and dangerous, and like any other teenage she break rules.

In the begging of the book we discover that Jacinda likes to break some sacred rules, putting in danger all her village. She is off playing with Azure, her best friend, flying around unawere of the danger lying around. Hunters find the two playing and start to attack them. To protect her friend Jacinda becomes their only target, and in a very special part she meets Will, a good hunter. And he let her free.

The elders find out what happened and decide to do avery bad thing with Jacinda, that’s when her mother decides to leave. They run away, and since Jacinda is the only Draki among them, her mother choose a very hard place for Jacinda to live on, hoping that her draki will die.

Jacinda fights every day againts losing her part draki, and when she goes to school and discover that Will lives on that city and is the ony one capable of keeping her draki alive, she does everything to be with him.

But Cassian finds her and wants her back on the village, I truly belived in Cassian, let’s see if in the next book he’ll show he’s true face.

Hunger Games #3
From Goodreads:
Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.
I liked the other two books, and this one is waiting on my bookshelf for over a month and I didn’t even thnk about reading it, maybe I’m afraid this is it, the big end. And I want Peeta alive, but fear it might not hapen.
Maybe this October I’ll find some time for him.
