So I haven't posted in a while. . . . . But that's okay! This is only my second WoW (click here to go to Breaking the Spine to learn more), so I've still got lots of books that I really want to read that I can post about!
Today it's going to be: Steel - Carrie Vaughn
"When Jill finds a rusty sword tip on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued—and little expects it will transport her through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Will a dark enchantment, salty kisses, and a duel with an evil pirate captain leave her stranded in the eighteenth century forever?"
There's mainly one reason I want to read Steel is because of the idea. It's not that I don't like the cover; I do, but I did fencing once, and it sounds like some sort of dark romantic book meets Pirates of the Carribean. Since I enjoy both of these things, I think I'll love this book. I like the idea of a girl from the present (or whenever she's from, I just know she goes back in time) going all the way back to the 1700s. It seems to have a mystery aspect to it, because of the way she might be stranded there. It reminds of Pirates of the Carribean mainly because it's set in the Carribean, and there's a duel with the evil captain. I love the way that the summary pulls you in just from a few sentences, making you want more. It seems like some sort of sword dueling rather than gun, or any other modern weapon, and although I didn't like fencing as much as I thought I would, I love sword fights the most.
Also. . . . . . . . .
I'm currently reading a book called I Am Number Four, which is absolutely amazing. Here's the link to Goodreads, where there's the book summary, reviews, and all that sort of stuff. Also, here's a trailer for the movie that's coming out.
