Rayne is 15% done with Crushed (Soul Eaters, #2)
I was going to wait a bit before reading this, but in light of recent terrible news (Strange Chemistry shutting down), I think this book needs (and deserves) as much immediate attention as it can get. If you haven't read the series, pick it up and support the author! It's a ridiculously fun series and Meda is one of the best recent YA (anti)heroines I've read about.

Crushed (Soul Eaters, #2)

Rayne is 60% done with They All Fall Down
This book should be called instead "They All Constantly Reassure Kenzie That She is Beautiful, Brilliant, and Perfect and Totally Deserves To Be On the List and Let's All Forget How Insanely Misogynistic This Whole Thing Is."

They All Fall Down

Rayne is 20% done with They All Fall Down
The "Hottie List", the bff, calling her "fifth", the nurse #9 from 1988, the "threat" to her virginity..

They All Fall Down

Rayne is 20% done with They All Fall Down
The "Hottie List", the attention, the guy tenderly calling her "fifth", the creepy nurse #9 from 1988, the hot guy who's a treat to her "virginity"...

Rayne is reading Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles, #1)
A floating island in the sky, completely cut off from what is happening on the ground, and put there by the gods? Internment? Really?
It's called Skyloft. Get your facts straight.

Rayne is reading Kinslayer (The Lotus Wars, #2)
This beauty arrived yesterday! Can't wait to be reunited with the awesome Yukiko and my precious Buruu. But I have a feeling, like with all the things Kristoff has written so far, that I'll end up on the floor, rocking back and forth, crying my heart out and asking the universe why life is so cruel. I'm pretty sure I'll love every minute of it.

Kinslayer (The Lotus Wars, #2)

Rayne is reading The Final Descent (The Monstrumologist, #4)
This is the second final book to one of my favorite series I've read this week. Back-to-back to be precise. Apparently, I want to emotionally destroy and scar myself. Oh well, at least I'll enjoy becoming an emotional wreck for the rest of the week.

The Final Descent (The Monstrumologist, #4)

Rayne is on page 102 of 467 of Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2)
I loved Grave Mercy, but so far, Dark Triumph is leaving its predecessor in the dust. Absolutely spectacular.

Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2)

Rayne is on page 122 of 310 of The Sound
Well that's some insane amount of slut-shaming. 'Skanktron'? That's new - and absolutely unnecessary. That, combined with the fact that all the girls except for the protagonist are either mean, gossip-queens, shallow, stupid, haters, snobs or throw themselves at guys to be discarded like empty wrappers, is really hurting what would've otherwise been a good reading experience.

Rayne is on page 73 of 364 of Rush (The Game, #1)
...what? I...just... I think I'm lost. What just happened? I have to stop picking up books without re-reading the blurbs first because I was not expecting that. Whatever that was, anyway.

Rayne added a status update
"On behalf of the Goodreads team, I want to say thank you. You’re in the top 1% of reviewers on Goodreads!" My initial reaction: Well, that can't be right. After seeing all the powerhouse reviewers posting about this: Wait, how big is this 1%? After reading the email about 50 times, I still can't believe it. Thanks to everyone who has followed me or liked my reviews! This totally made my day!

Battle Royale

Rayne is on page 80 of 416 of The Loners (Quarantine, #1)
So the only two all-girl gangs in this book are called 'The Pretty Ones', who do nothing for themselves except making beauty products and cheering for their brutal boyfriends as they go get supplies for them, and 'The Sluts'? Yeah, no. Strike one, book. This is already looking really bad for you.

Rayne is starting Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)
...Awesome. I've been waiting for months for a chance to be able to take on this one and soon as I take off the dust jacket to begin, I see that there's a family tree on the back of the dust jacket and one involuntary glance tells me exactly who Tessa ends up with. Great... Oh well, moving on.

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)

Rayne is on page 236 of 375 of Quicksilver (Ultraviolet, #2)
I am loving this one, but I think this book might have a huge hole in its research. The antenna Tori thought Sebastian was talking about is certainly not in New Mexico, but here in my Puerto Rico. Arecibo is a town here in PR with a world-renowned observatory that houses the largest radio dish in the world. I know this might seem totally irrelevant, but hey, this is my country and give credit where credit is due.

Quicksilver (Ultraviolet, #2)

Rayne is on page 200 of 496 of Unbreakable (Unraveling, #2)
"My dad always complained about how feminism told us that women were equal to men. Not because he was sexist or anything, but because he firmly believed in realism." I can't believe the author would choose these words to just point out that the protagonist is in trouble because the guy is physically stronger than she is. These words are a gross, offensive and confusing misunderstanding of what feminism is.

Unbreakable (Unraveling, #2)

Rayne is on page 262 of 322 of Outcast
I can't believe it's taking me so long to finish this book. It's not like The Friday Society was such an achievement in YA, but at least that one was enjoyable, this one, on the other hand, has failed to hook me in over 200 pages. This one is pretty much 'meh' at best, but I will finish it today no matter what!

Rayne is on page 27 of 244 of Doll Bones
Putting this one on hold until I'm done with finals. It's a really short book, but I lack the time and concentration to get through it right now. Just six more days and I'm free to read until I go blind.

Doll Bones

Rayne is on page 135 of 342 of Haunting Violet (Haunting Violet, #1)
I don't claim to be an expert on Jane Eyre, but I do think this book just made an wrong reference to it. The red room was at Gateshead, Mrs. Reed's house and where Jane spent her childhood, definitely not at Thornfield Hall with Mr. Rochester as this book claims.

Haunting Violet (Haunting Violet, #1)

Rayne is on page 149 of 431 of Acid
Slowly but surely enjoying this one. I think this high-octane, cat-and-mouse game in a dystopic nation with a totally kickass protagonist is just what I needed. I will definitely do my best to finish it tomorrow.
