Weekly Reading List #40

By Cynthia Ayala

Hello there avid readers, I can’t believe it’s already April. This is last month of this semester. It’s so weird how it always seems like it’s going to feel like it will go on forever, but then it goes by so quickly and the next thing I know, it’s time for me to start packing again, to finish up the last of my semester. It’s so weird how fast time flies. Next thing you know, summer will be over and I’ll be back at school.

It will be nice to enjoy my summer days of sleeping in and working nights at my movie theater. I love my movie theater, I totally need a raise, but as I’ve always said, I’d rather go broke working a job I love with great company and bosses than be miserable. I actually look forward to going to work. Of course, I’m also a night owl so working nights is tons of fun.

But you are not here for that, you are, or maybe you are, but here is my current reading list. As always, synopsis are courtesy of Goodreads.

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:

A Stand Out Cinderella Story | Review of ‘Cinder’ (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

By: Cynthia Ayala

Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Feiwel & Friends

Cinder may be a gifted mechanic, but as a cyborg, she’s a second-class citizen with no memory of her life before she was taken in by her step-family. But events unfold, intertwining her life with the Prince of Commonwealth in New Beijing, Prince Kai. With secrets, plots and an intergalactic struggle, Cinder finds out her life could save everyone from the evil Queen of the Moon, Levena.
