Sadly Over Ambitious

I know in my last couple of posts I mentioned having a classical book of the month, but I'm afraid at this stage in my life that just isn't possible, someday I hope it will be but until then I'm afraid it will be a thought in the back of my mind. I'm so sorry if this is disappointing you, but it has to be done. I'd rather do it now then have a mental break down in the long run.
So sorry,
Sidny xoxo

What's New on Books My Quiet Friends

So, I've been doing a ton of updates lately and I'm sure someone is getting freaking impatient. Can't say I blame you. But I'm trying to make it so I have at least 3 posts a week. It's pretty tricky, but will be worth it. So what is this one about? This is to tell you all the work that is going into this blog at the moment. On the side you will see that there are a couple new books up. One under the title of Classic Novel of the Month and another under Currently Rereading. If you're looking for an explanation on the Classic Novel, see the post below. And now to explain the currently rereading photo. 

The point of this is to tell you that I am not only reading the currently reading book, but I'm trying to reread some past books so maybe I can finish a series or read a sequel. Most of the time when I finish posting a review/spoiler the idea of what happened in that book wipes clean and I become engaged with the next one on the list. This causes a bit of an issue when I realize that this book is maybe first in a series or that the author is writing more. And so, in order to finish a series I'm going to have to start rereading some of the books I've already read. At this time, that means the book Eve by Anna Carey. 
Thanks for your patience. 

As well you can now find Books, My Quiet Friends on Youtube. Only two videos have been posted, but I'm hoping to purchase a mic soon so that the audio is better. 

And have a fantastic Tuesday!
Thanks for reading,
Sidny xoxo

Ten Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great Monday (or is that an oxymoron?). 
So this morning I had an idea about a getting to know you session. I thought since most of you only know anything about me from book reviews/spoilers it would be fun for you to realize that I'm real. And for those who are ticked off that this isn't a book review, I apologize but swear that I am still reading. More than ever!

1. I live in a rural town in Manitoba, Canada. I'm well aware that many people have an idea what Canadian citizens are all about, but no I don't ride a polar bear anywhere, nor have I ever seen one. Sorry for the disappointment. 

2. I work in a grocery store part time. Maybe this isn't an interested fact about my life, but it's a good reason for anyone to realize why I can't read a book in 2 days. Damn this need for money. What department do I work in you ask? The produce department. (Ps. I know no one actual asked, but ha word vomit).

3. I sang in a Performing Arts Class band for 3 years. Was I good? Probably not. Was it fun? YOU BET! I love music, almost as much as books (who am I joking?) and think that it helps us connect with who we really are.

4. I repel technology.  I'm not even joking. I've had to take my laptop in 3 times in the past 6 months. Mainly because I had no idea what it was doing. Not to mention that I broke my first cell phone within a year of having it. I don't mean send it away to get fixed broken, I mean busted beyond repair.

5. I am obsessed with writing letters. I know that writing emails and texting are way quicker, but I love the idea of getting a handwritten something in the mail. Yes, I'm into snail mail.

6. I'm planning to go to college next year for Early Childhood Education. I love working with kids, and this seemed like a great career for me so after a lot of deliberation  I decided on a school and have sent away my application and other necessities. Wish me luck!

7. I am fashionably clueless. I am not the girl who does her hair or spends hours deciding what to wear. Fortunately for me, my sister knows the ins and outs of fashion and is always there to offer her opinion. 

8. Reading is a family thing. It's been linked that parents who read often to their children are often to have children who like to read. Makes sense right? And that's how I was raised. My whole family reads. My mom reads adult fiction and quite often will pass me a book if she loved it. My dad is that guy who reads old paperback westerns. And my little sister? She's the Kate from Kate's Chioce and lately she's been moving into the young adult section right beside me. 

9. My new obsession is Netflix. I found it and now I'm stuck. Anyone else out there who just can't get enough. (This is not a product endorsement, pinkyswear). 

10. I adore classic literature. I love all the old books and while they are different to read and are sometimes a bit tricky to read, the words just seem to flow in such a beautiful way. And so a new feature on Books, My Quiet Friends. The Classic Book of the month. Octobers is Poems of Edgar Allan Poe selected by Dwight Macdonald. I thought the gruesomeness of Edgar Allan Poe would definitely fit Halloween. So there ya go.

Tell me something about you or just send me a random message at

So, why have there been next to no updates on the blog? I can answer that easily enough, I'm starting a Youtube channel as well as having this blog and so I've been a little distracted. I'll warn you this before I post the link, I have no idea what I'm doing on Youtube nor do I know how to use it, but I'm gonna learn. Let's face it, it's not like I knew how to write a book review either, but I've done ok so far. So thanks for your patience and if you're interested you can find my intro video at Wish me luck.

Thanks for reading,
Sidny xoxo

Book Review: Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate

Title: Fallen In Love
Author: Lauren Kate
Series: FALLEN (Book #3.5)
Pages: 151
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Year Published: 2012
First Line: “Shelby and Miles were laughing when they stepped out of the Announcer.”

Unexpected. Unrequited. Forbidden. Eternal. Everyone has their own love story. And in a twist of fate, four extraordinary love stories combine over the course of a romantic Valentine's Day in Medieval England. Miles and Shelby find love where they 
least expect it. Roland learns a painful lesson about finding-and losing love. Arianne pays the price for a love so fierce it burns. And for the first -and last- time, Daniel and Luce 
will spend a night together like none other.
Lauren Kate's FALLEN IN LOVE is filled with love stories . . . the ones everyone has been waiting for.
True love never says goodbye. . 

My Rating: 5/5

Let’s start off with why I marked this book as #3.5. This is because this book does not continue from where Passion leave off, and it only makes sense if you’ve read Passion, the third book. Tada book #3.5, as well as Goodreads might have given me the idea. Thanks fantastic website!
I loved this book. Going through and finding out about other characters was an amazing adventure and book written with this exact point need to be published more often. I feel like this way the readers questions are answered and curiosities solved (Can you solve a curiosity? Sure why not?)  Not only that but these all the stories in Fallen in Love are so personal readers can easily read them and get to know their favourite characters.
So this is why this book got a 5/5 rating from this reviewer. I’m not saying everyone will agree, but if you wanna say what you think, read the book and let me know.

Thanks for reading,

Spoiler: Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate

I really enjoyed this book. It’s one of those books that let’s a reader feel like everything they’re reading is real. The characters, the events (both past and present). It gives a series that truth factor that I LOVE! I think that this was a tremendous idea from Lauren Kate and it will certainly make the final book more enjoyable. The characters have been through so much and learning that makes the rest of the series more interesting. Instead of all the focus always being on Daniel and Luce, it gives others the spotlight. Other’s maybe you’ve wondered about their past and why they chose the side they did. It’s fantastic. Speaking of characters, let’s get this started.

♥Miles: I think he is such a sweetheart. He went through so much to try to find Luce, so I figure we all (ok this reader in particular) thought he must love her. And then BAM, there’s a big realization of his feelings for Shelly and how they seem to just click the right way. He deserves to have someone special and I think Shelby definitely works for him. Loved it!
♥Shelby: Ok, I think she’s a great character who speaks her mind, and ya I didn’t see her and Miles getting together, but now that they have it totally works! They’re just the right mix of sweet and sassy. Hopefully they work out and it was just love in the Medieval England air.
♥Roland: This character is really interesting, mainly because he doesn’t seem to be 100% committed to his role as demon. I believe there is a chance that he could cross over to the other side, but then again he did go through some tough times. I was interested to hear about his past love interest because I thought it was Arianne. Whoops. I’m glad that he didn’t kill his loves husband and take his place, but maybe he’ll find a happy ending yet.
♥Arianne: Holy smokes, where to begin on this one. Maybe the important idea of homosexuality involved with the idea of Fallen angels. I liked it because it gave the idea that maybe things had been that way for a long time and I believe in supporting people no matter their sexuality or sexual preference I was happy to see it. Oh yah, and we finally find out where she got her scar. That amazed me and horrified me at the same time, mainly because she has to continue through her eternal life with the reminder of the love she lost literally as a scar on her skin.
Luce: As usual it boils down to Luce and Daniel, although its not all about them anymore. I liked that it ended with her getting into her Medieval self and experiencing a Valentine’s Day with Daniel, it was sweet and not at all what I expected.
Daniel: He is some boyfriend. I love the idea of the peonies being the symbol of their, Luce and Daniel’s, eternal love. Something different and original. Yay for being one of a kind. a

Moments to Remember♥
♥Pg. 15
“’Riding to town t’ fetch a maid, a busty maid, a lusty maid. Riding to town to take a bride, in eventide, a Valentine!’
 ‘Classy,’ Shelby rolled her eyes.”

♥Pg. 20
“…he held a long, pale-green linen gown with bell sleeves and an embroidered golden strip running down it’s center, a pair of lemon yellow stockings, and a bonnet that looked sort of like a nun’s wimple, made of taupe linen.
 ‘But what are you going to wear?’ Miles joked.”

♥Pg. 66
“They’d shared something rare and beautiful, and he’d learned that women felt deeply when it came to love. They felt love in ways Roland could never understand, as if their hearts had extra chambers, vast infinites where love could stay and never leave.”

♥Pg.  110
“’I say, if love is rough with you, be rough with love!’ Eleanor said in her bossy way. ‘Stamp out sadness with dancing slippers!’”

Final Line: “But once it made its first early beats toward flight, it had to be trusted to take wing on its own and soar past the highest conceivable heights, into the heavens- and beyond.”

Book Review: Black Heart by Holly Black

Title: Black Heart
Author: Holly Black
Series: The Curseworkers (Book #3)
Pages: 296
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Year Published: 2012
First Line: “My brother Barron sits next to me, sucking the last dregs of milk tea slush noisily through a wide yellow straw.”

“In a world where magic is illegal, Cassel Sharpe has the most dangerous ability of all. And that makes him a wanted man. The Feds will forgive his past crimes if he leaves them all behind and goes straight. But that means being on the opposite side of the law from Lila, the girl he loves. She’s the daughter of a mob boss and getting ready to join the family business herself. Though Cassel is sure she can never love him back, he can’t stop obsessing over her. And now the Feds need Cassel to get rid of a powerful man who is out of control. But if they want Cassel to hurt people, what separates the good guys from the bad? With no easy answers and no one he can trust, love might be the most dangerous gamble of all.”

My Rating: 4.5/5

I’ve really gotten into third series instalments lately, haven’t I? Sorry readers who haven’t read the first two books, soon I’ll be with a novel that you can easily follow without having to read past posts. Back to the topic. This book really dig deeps into the world that Holly Black has created in which there are curseworkers who roam among everyday people. I loved that the characters expanded to the point that I felt like I knew them and was able to picture them. It was interesting to jump into the idea that politics would play with these extraordinary skills and those who were given them.
On another note, I thought this was the last book in the series, but the ending has me questioning that. Think they’ll be another one? Tell me what you think.

Thanks for reading,

Sidny xoxo

Spoiler: Black Heart by Holly Black

As I mentioned above, this is the third book in the curseworkers series. I really enjoyed this book. It has expanded so much since the first one. White Cat seems like it was read so long ago, and I can’t imagine not getting to this point, so I’m happy I didn’t give up on them. This book really goes in depth as to what the government treats the curseworkers as. I think that in many cases as soon as they find out someone is a worker, if they’re not useful for some other reason (assassination anyone?) then they are treated as though they have already done something wrong, which may be true but what if it’s not? I especially was interested in the….

♥Cassel: Wow, has he ever grown up since the first book we’ve read. I actually like him a lot more now. I can think of him as an adult, instead of a kid stuck in a tough situation. I loved that he found away around the government and managed to get Patton out of office. Smart choice sir, I tip my figurative hat to you. I never even thought of that as an option. As well, I applaud you for getting Lila, took you long enough, but such things make a good series. I do wonder about how things will go if they make another book, I would be impressed if there was one. Hint, hint. I wonder how the rest of the characters are gonna cope with his disappearance especially. Like things weren’t already confusing between Barron, Sam and Daneca what happens when Cassel just *poof* disappears.
Lila: I wasn’t sure if she was still cursed or not when she got together with Cassel, but it seems like it was love from the start. And I like that she’s a woman who gets to call the shots in a relationship. You go girl, even if you are a criminal. Ps. Totally supporting the fact that you took Cassel into hiding with you. Even though I saw it coming.
Sam: He really went through stuff with this whole breakup with Daneca thing. Not to mention getting shot in the leg, but I love this big teddy bear.
Daneca: Dating Barron seemed like a dick move, let’s be honest here. But I almost liked them. Because….
Barron: seemed to change around her. Is it possible that he did? I really do wonder though. What do you think?
Zacharov: I think that Cassel’s Mom and this dude would make a great couple. Maybe if she finds him the resurrection diamond that she urm… borrowed.
Yulikova: Hard to believe that I would think someone from this alternate universes FBI would be more evil than the mob boss but surprise. She is just wrong in her ways of thinking, Cassel is a human, not a weapon. So there!

♥Moments To Remember♥
♥Pg. 78
“’Your family is badass,’ Sam says ‘They set a high bar of badassery.’”

♥Pg. 90
“’No, no. Sit down, Cassel. I’m fine.’
  I grab a chair. ‘I don’t mean to pry,’ I say, ‘but we’re in a hospital. You sure you’re fine?’
 She sighs heavily. ‘No getting anything past you, huh?’”

♥Pg. 185
“’Cassel Sharpe: boy assassin.’ He shakes his head. ‘You should have your own comic book.’
  I grin. ‘Only if you’ll be my runty spandex-wearing sidekick.’”

♥Pg. 278
“Barron hands me a cup of coffee.
 ‘Black, like your soul,’ he says with a grin.”

♥Final Line: "The big score."

Book Review: Passion by Lauren Kate

Title: Passion
Author: Lauren Kate
Series: FALLEN series (Book #3)
Pages: 253
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Year Published: 2011
First Line: “A shot rang out.”

Luce would die for Daniel.
And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn't need to be that way....
Luce is certain that something - or someone - in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of 
thislifetime...going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel...and finally unlock the key to making their love last.
Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history. Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames...forever.
Sweeping across centuries, PASSION is the third novel in the unforgettably epic FALLEN series”

My Rating: 4/5

This instalment in the Fallen series has a really interesting perspective for our main character. It takes place as Luce travels through time and sees her other selves falling in love with Daniel. It is a truly fantastic piece of work. I loved that as readers we are finally able to understand the love that flows between the two main characters. Lauren Kate does a tremendous job of illustrating the past with her descriptions and helping us understand the world she’s created. That has got to be my favourite part in this book. I was disappointed that there were moments when I felt as though the main character was just to naïve for her own good, but that was over came by the end. I am looking forward to reading the final book, Rapture, but first I’m going to read book “3.5” Fallen in Love.

Thanks for reading,

Sidny xoxo

Spoiler: Passion by Lauren Kate

This series is such an interesting topic for me. I think that the world has moved on from the vampire faze and has moved into one of fallen angels. And some of them I love. This series is capturing my heart the more I read, as it is not only about fallen angels, it includes the idea of curses and reincarnation. That idea is quite fascinating. The idea that there is a chance that humans could come back is something, I believe, everyone wonders about from time to time. Anywho, this book involves Luce’s travel through time. Seeing all her reincarnates of herself falling in love with Daniel. I loved it! The way that she falls in love with him over and over again, doesn’t seem like a curse. She gets to know what true love is in every life. I did feel guilty that he has to live on without her over and over. She dies and forgets him, but he continues living with the memory of her and the pain in his heart, waiting for her to return to him. I loved that the times were illustrated by Lauren Kate, and it brought some interesting historical facts to the series.

♥Luce:  She has really grown up since the first book, and in this book I was glad to see that she was starting to make her own choice and fend for herself. Figuring out her past was obviously important to her and it made all the difference in the romance aspect for the series. I was really disappointed that she trusted “Bill” without any thought. If someone is lurking in a portal waiting for you, and he knows your name, would you just take his advice without thinking? She knew people were out to get her after the Outcasts attacked her backyard in the last book and yet she is still so trusting. That was what really frustrated me. I was also shocked when she almost killed herself, I can see why she did it though. If you could save your loved ones from a great amount of pain, wouldn’t you if you truly loved them?
Daniel: The way he follows her through time is impressive. It must be hard for him as well to watch her die for a second time at most of the locations he lands. But I guess it’s forever in his memory anyway. I couldn’t stop laughing in the England scenario when he walked in and started yelling at the wrong Luce, that was hilarious. I love him, and am happy that his overbearing behaviour is finally over. That was just silly. As well, not surprised to learn that him and Cam were brothers, had to be a family thing. It just felt right.
Cam:  I knew he wasn’t always evil. It just had been a change after some time. I was surprised to see that the reason was a girl. But it just goes to show that everyone is capable of love. Well except maybe Satan.
Bill/Satan:  Lucky for this guy, Luce was really naïve in this life so he had a chance to get to her. Let’s hope they can stop this plan other wise it’s curtains for most of my favourite characters.
I decided not to include some of the passing through characters, because I felt that these were the most important. Anyone you wanna talk about from this book, feel free to comment below.

♥Moments to Remember♥
♥Pg. 60
“’Virgil?’ Luce asked, having a flashback to sophomore English. ‘As in the guy who led Dante through the nine circles of Hell?’
 ‘That’s the one. He’s so by the book, it’s a snooze. Anyway, you and I aren’t sojourning through Hell right now,’ he explained with a shrug. ‘Tourist season.”’

♥Pg. 120
“’I can’t believe this. How could they? This is my responsibility-‘
 ‘Free will.’ Cam shrugged. ‘It’s all the rage these days.’”

♥Final Line: “And though she couldn’t imagine tomorrow, Luce stepped into Daniel’s arms and said, ‘Always.’”

Book Review: Monsters by Ilsa J. Bick

           Title: Monsters
           Author: Ilsa J. Bick
          Series: The Ashes Trilogy (Book #3)
          Pages: 671
          Publisher:  Egmont
          Year Published: 2013
          First Line: “Alex had fallen like this only once in her life.”

         ”The Changed are on the move.
           The Spared are out of time.
            The End… is now.
 When her parents died, Alex thought things couldn't get much worse- until the doctors found the monster in her head.
She headed into the wilderness as a good-bye, to leave everything behind. But then the end of the world happened, and Alex took the first step down a treacherous road of betrayal and terror and death.
Now, with no hope of rescue- on the brink of starvation in a winter that just won’t quit she discovers a new and horrifying truth.
The Change isn't over.
The Changed are still evolving.
And… they’ve had help.
With this final volume of The Ashes Trilogy, Ilsa J. Bick delivers a riveting, blockbuster finish, returning readers to a brutal, post-apocalyptic world where no one is safe and hope is in short supply.
A world where, from the ashes, the monsters may rise.”

My Rating: 4.5/5

This is a series that I found at my local library and instantly fell in love with. The topic of the end of the world is a fascinating one for many reasons. It involves imagination and can also cause a reader to fear for the future. It could be any time if you think about it. There are so many things we as humans don’t know or understand. It’s a thrill to read. Ilsa J. Bick did a great job in this trilogy, using genius descriptions. So descriptive that I found if I closed my eyes I could picture what was going on in my mind (Please say someone else does this and I’m not crazy?). The only reason that I couldn’t give this instalment a full 5/5 is because I felt that parts of it really dragged on. I hate to see a series end, but I felt like this one was hard for the author to end and so it just kept on going on. But at the same time, it needed to have this kind of ending. I can’t say that I know anything about writing a novel, because I obviously don’t, but that’s what this blog is about. Feedback and book loving. Tada. Hopefully that wasn’t offensive.

Spoiler: Monsters by Ilsa J. Bick

So much to say about this series, I found these at my library and once I started reading them I had to read more and more. I ended up buying  this book as soon as it came out because I couldn’t wait any longer to see what the ending would be. This book was an interesting end to the series that’s for certain. The way that the chapters are written in themselves is amazing. Throughout the book you are changing form one character to another’s experiencing during this time. We move from Alex, Peter, Tom, Ellie, Chris and all the way back through. I must say that it impressed me that she could keep up with all of these, but at the same time it got a little confusing for me the reader, when I had to put down the book to get to work, I felt lost picking it back up. After I got over that, it was a good way to see what was going on in every aspect of the story. Something that has impressed me from the start was Ilsa J. Bick’s use of diction. Nothing like being able to visualize a story.

Alex: A strong character who battles the odds again and again. She is constantly fighting something and it was good to see that she didn’t die in the second book. That’s always a lovely surprise. I feel like we got to see inside her head a lot more in this final instalment. What was going on with the monster. Not to mention how many boys were after her. Would be hard to choose between Chris, Wolf/Simon and Tom. I’m gonna say that she chose Tom in the end, but then it goes into the section about Wolf coming back and it confused me but maybe she’ll just try to install a reverse change in him. Make him go into the boy he was before the Zap. She is a good character, even though she’s been through so much, but I’m happy she wasn’t the only Point of View in this finally book.
Tom:  I have loved him from the start he just compliment Alex’s personality so well and he is a great mentor for Ellie. I cried when the were reunited. Finally after all this time. He is a sweetheart and although he obviously has post traumatic stress disorder, he is more than capable to handle the future that I imagine these characters have.
♥Chris: It was interesting to find out how he was raised and everything like that. How Jess had been with Yeager and that whole story came together beautifully. It was slightly confusing, but in the way that I feel like my brain has to do some work. (Well that was purely intellectual). I think he’d have a brighter future away from Tom, Ellie and Alex, but everyone needs a family and he lost his. Finally let’s just mention some crazy magic mushrooms have affected him in some pretty interesting way.
Ellie: She’s so young to be in such a tough time. I was surprised when she wanted to put Bella down herself, but she’s had to grow up fast in this situation. What choice did she have?  I love her and think that finding Tom was the best thing that could have happened for her. Now her, Alex, Tom and Chris can be a family (fingers crossed). Mina dying was another time I cried. I thought that dog would make it for sure.
Peter: He had to die, and that’s horrible to say, but I don’t think he would have ever recovered from what happened with Finn. It wasn’t only physically damaging, but as well as psychologically.
Finn: I have no doubt, that there is someone who is this twisted out there, but thinking about that makes my skin crawl. Pure EVIL!
Greg: He had so much responsibility. What were they thinking putting someone that age in charge? And when the first girl he ever kissed died, Torri, well that’s just a whole new batch of emotional pain.
There are so many other’s I could mention, but I only have so much room.

Moments to Remember♥:

♥Pg. 178
“’Don’t.’ Her eyes dodged back to her books. ‘Don’t be angry with me.’
 ‘Angry? Oh, Hannah.’ There was a short silence and then the heavy tread of his boots as he headed for the door. ‘I wish I could be, because that would be so much easier.’”

Pg. 199
“While Wolf might protect her, she didn’t think he’d take kindly to her whacking him with a crowbar.”

♥Pg. 326
“The only time anything like that happened with Wolf, when his scent shifted and became an aroma that was safety and family and desire, was around her. The only person to whom Wolf seemed truly attached and attracted, and for whom he would risk his life, was… her.
 Which was just so frigging great.”

♥Pg. 347
“She turned back to the animal. ‘Hey, boy, whatcha doing?’ she said, softly, knowing better. This was something poor, cranky, sweet little Ellie would’ve done: Hey, strange animal, come give me rabies.”

If you could give me some advice as how to fix this please let me know as the Blogger Help centre is not being helpful at all in this situation. Sorry again so here is a post update.
