Been There, Read That {2}

BEEN THERE, READ THAT is new feature I've created to spotlight up-and-coming pre-releases that might not have made it onto your radar yet. BEEN THERE, READ THAT was inspired by Lauren (365 Days of Reading), and her Picks of the Week, and Tara (Hobbitsies), and her Early Buzz posts.


EDIT// Not Tiger Lily's perspective, TINKER BELL's perspective.

I love your vlogs! Your enthusiastic grinning and dancing at the beginning is still making me crack up. ;)

Asher, your vlogs always put this ridiculously stupid huge grin on my face! Grats on Onyx!! 

Okay I had completely ignored When You Were Mine before this, but now I really want to read it!  I've never been a big R&J fan partially because the Roseline (sp?) thing made me hate Romeo and think real love didn't exist.  MUST READ.

Also I have been meaning to read the Artemis Fowl books for years...maybe now that the series is finally ending I'll get around to it?

Yay for fangirling! Gosh your enthusiasm is contagious, I was smiling through the whole thing! Lately I've been hearing about When You Were Mine, and it seems like a very good read. And it's about Romeo and Juliet!

And OMG TIGER LILY. SO. JEALOUS. I've been pinning for this book ever since I read its summary. I mean, Peter Pan. From Tinker Bell's perspective. ME WANTS. So sad to hear it'll most likely won't be a happy ever after. I'm such a child for these things, I always want books to end with a big happy ending LOL

 XD I'm glad people are fond of my creepy enthusiasm! But, it was ten times worse when I first received the email. My mom begged me to let her go back to work because I wouldn't stop talking to her once I called her.

Asher Knight said...

 GOOD. Because I'd hate to be the only one stupidly grinning as seen above, *LOL*. It was pretty good, BUT I LIVED FOR THE KATY AND DAEMON SCENES.

DON'T IGNORE IT. I absolutely loved it, OBVS, but it's just... such a beautifully written story in the most subtle way, that has nothing to do with convoluted, imaginative writing but what Serle is trying to convey and how she does. The characters are close, bonded, and hilarious together. The real romance devastatingly sweet. IT IS SO WONDERFUL.

And the Artemis Fowl series... BOY, OH BOY. I'm trying to get my mom into it, who admittedly was hooked after the first chapter. Artemis Fowl, at least at first, is a teenage Moriarty. The perfect kid genius anti-hero and AWESOME at it. The characters are so easy to love and I love watching Artemis develop a conscious even as he does his little dirty work on the side. I'm hoping to finish the series soon!

 XD As you can see, I ROCK AT IT. I could break things with the size of my grins. I want to EVERYONE to read When You Were Mine. If I could, I'd make it a mandate.

TIGER LILY is pretty good SO FAR. I just need to sit down and finish it, gosh darn it. I'll let you know how it goes.

Heidi said...

Kid Moriarty?!  Say no more, it has now become much more of a priority.

LOL omg I LOVE your excitement! I bet you're happy though, that's awesomeeeee. :DD And you make me happy! LOL, definitely needed with me almost panicking over my test tomorrow.... no fun. But YAY. 
I totally need to read that series, btw. ;o I loved Half-Blood! Actually, I think I have to read all of these! Especially Tiger Lily! I'm SOOO excited about it. :D Love this feature!

Asher Knight said...

YOU WANT THE GOLDEN LILY TOO?? I'm posting my review in June, I think. Let me check the calendar... YUP. June. But we'll see if it wins out for Been There, Read That. I'M SO EFFING EXCITED TO TALK ABOUT IT.

Asher Knight said...

I'M SOOOOOO HAPPY INSIDE, i could be a ballerina. As long as I'm still talking my insides, because physically I'll break someone. GLAD TO HELP RELIEVE THE STRESS. No charge. XD

YES. YOU DO. In my opinion, the Lux series is way better. I just didn't dig Half-Blood nearly as much. TIGER LILY. *sigh* I still need to find time to finish that sucker. THANKS , Rebecca <3
