Weekly Reading List #21


By Cynthia Ayala

Better late than never I suppose. It was quite the busy weekend for me, mainly because of work and school work and the fact that I am sick. So this week has been a little crazy for me. But, at least I have great bosses and cool classes with interesting discussions. It’s nice to be back at school, even though I miss my mom, fiancé and cute kitten Mr. J Who Thinks He’s Batman. He’s such a cute kitty and I can’t wait to see him again.

But anyway, here is my weekly reading list for the week. I hope you all had a wonderful fun filled weekend. As always, all synopsis are provided by Goodreads:

Weekly (School) Reading List – Fall 2015 – Week 3


By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there readers! Okay so like I said before I was going to showcase what I was reading for school and maybe, depending on the content, write reviews of what I have read. Also time is a big issue as well. I only have so many hours in a day. I will also be sorting this list by my classes. You might be wondering why the heck I am doing this. Well here’s there reason: because I can? I know, I’m a weirdo, that’s a fact, but I guess what I’m also trying to do is stay on top of my reading and if this is going to help me do that, well then here we go. I also want to make my school life more familiar with my readers – hey, that’s you guys! – and generate interest in what I am doing here at school as well as comments on my reading material.

Like I said, I’m a weird one. But I would like to make a note that professors are assigning sections of the material below. So if you see it again that means that we are either still reading it or that we are reading another section of it. Just wanted to make that clear.

Anyway, much like with my regular weekly reading list, all synopsis’s are courtesy of Goodreads.

Weekly Reading List #19


By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! Okay, so here’s the deal. I will be having 2 separate reading lists (if you haven’t already noticed) one featuring school reads and one reading my out of school reads. The whole reason is because there is just way to much to put it in one article and this way it will give all of us a way to differentiate the pair of them. So here we go, a start of a whole new school year with me trying to stay sane by being me and not letting myself drown in school work.

And, as always, all synopsis are courtesy of Goodreads.

Weekly Reading List #18


By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there readers! So this may be my last really good reading list since I will be starting school next week at Emerson provided that the tropical storm/hurricane does not impede my journey. Since I will be starting school I will mostly be reading school books and ebooks so my reading lists may fluctuate a lot. As for what you can expect in reviews, well there might be a lag here or there since I will also be working 2 jobs and have probably bunches of school work. Ah school, you are so necessary and time consuming. I will be returning to Emerson leaving FL on my 24th birthday (there could be worse birthday’s right?) and hopefully I will get to read everything that I want to read outside of school and work on my side projects and bracelets. On the bright side, I’ll be waking up early because I have to…wait, is that a bright side?

Anyway, you’ve had enough of my rambling so here are the books I hope to read this coming week. And, as always, all synopsis’ are courtesy of Goodreads. Happy reading!

Weekly Reading List #17


By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there readers! I hope that everyone had a wonderful week/weekend. It’s been pretty boring here in sunny Florida. Of course, here is some interesting news. My reviews have been favorited and retweeted Twitter by some authors! Isn’t that exciting! It may have only been two authors (Soman Chainani and Danielle Vega), but any sort of recognition is exciting in my book. They liked what I had to say about their novels. Then again, when I’m giving a book 4 or 5 stars, it’s hard to not like it, even if it may be poorly written. Oh God, now I’m going to be even more self-conscious about my reviews. However, if I stop now I won’t improve and sticking to it, analyzing and editing it certainly a way to make sure that I continue to improve.

So I finished the fourth novel in the Saga of Seven Suns series, Scattered Suns, and it was amazing! I’m in the middle of A Magic Dark and Bright right now and so far I like it. Can’t really complain, I did get the book for free after all via a Goodreads Giveaway. Anyway, here’s what’s on my reading list for the coming week. Happy reading folks.

But before I forget and ensue a lawsuit, all synopsis’ are provided by Goodreads.com. Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #17”

Weekly Reading List #16


By: Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers—or who I hope are avid readers. I hope everyone is having a much better week than I am having. I was terribly sick last week and earlier this week and I seem to be getting much better now. Other than the usual financial struggles I am facing with attending school, affording my rent and paying my bills, I seem to be in good spirits, can’t let the world weigh me down, that’s what I have to say about that. However, you aren’t hear to read about my problems, you’re here to see what I’m reading soon. So here we go! Oh and all synopsis are the courtesy of Goodreads.com.

Happy reading!

Weekly Reading List #13


By: Cynthia Ayala

Hey there readers! I know that I missed last week but I was at the Florida Supercon so I didn’t get a whole lot of reading done. But this week, man, I read two whole books! Cinder and Survive the Night were so good. Especially Survive the Night. Danielle Vega really knows how to suck a reader in and with that novel, she simply captivated me. I’m very picky with giving books five stars, but that novel certainly earned it; I couldn’t put it down.

Anyway, here’s what’s coming up on my weekly reading list and, as always, all synopsis are courtesy of Goodreads. Happy reading folks.
