GoodReads: WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

So I finished this book and I’ve wonder why? not in the sense of not liking it but in the sense of why didn’t I read this years ago.

I’m sure all of you have either read or seen this book by Laini Taylor, it’s the first book on a trilogy ( Don’t vote me on that) and it was published years ago. I’ve gone time and time again to the books store and seen it but to b honest Ive always felt little intimidated by the cover. I’t so beautiful and i felt as if I wasn’t prepared, but a week ago I decided that it was time and I’m glad I did.

The story is around a girl name Karou who lives in Prague. She’s 17 years old and an art student at an art academy but she also lives a life of mystery. She doesn’t remember anything of her past, she has no recollection of her parents or he life as a little kid all she remembers is Brimstone, who is not exactly human… far from it really,but even after years of living with and seeing their friends she knows there is a lot she doesn’t know about him and his life in the shadows or the dangerous missions he sends her into , he still the only family she knows and she loves him.

Her two worlds are always colliding, between her wanting to be and do things with her best friend but at the same time knowing she can exactly share her life with the people around her and follow her duty.

Magical hand prints are appearing into portal that connect her to Brimstone all around the world and is not until caos reigns that she starts to uncover what really is going on behind those door. And how Akive, the boy who is following her played apart in who she is.

I was a little thrown off with some of the descriptions of the characters just because it was so different from any angel/demon story I’ve ever read,(or my lack if the really) but surprise in a good way. I will say the encounters between Karou and Akive where what I looked forward the most. They both had a solid background story an edit was just so interesting to me to read about them.

Now, for the part i didn’t like so much. I didn’t really ilk how the flashbacks where so long, and descriptive. I do know that without them we wouldn’t have any back\ground or information and that they are necessary but if they would’ve been little shorter of more spread out between past and present I would  have enjoyed it more. but the whole one present chapter and 5 in the past at the end i felt was too much. still just a minor thing really when compared to everything else that happened here.

All in al I give this book a 4 stars. i enjoyed the characters, the interaction and just the whole execution of the idea. Beautiful throughout. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to spice things up a bit. and I can’t wait to read the other two books in the series.

HAVE YOU GUYS READ IT? if so tell me what you though of it guys.

GoodReads: WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

I have a feeling this is one of those book that people either really enjoy or dislike immediately.  I believe I fall into the enjoying category for sure, I have to say the reason why is because it has been a while since a book caught me completely by surprise. And when I say that i’m not exaggerating, I mena it, since page one and the introduction I was wondering about the next scheme or the next hilarious piece of dialog and every time Jana Aston delivered.

The story follows Everly (Beverly is her real name) in her quest to make the love of her life realize that she is the perfect woman for him. she has it all figure out and her plans are foolproof, for the most part. She usually drags along her best friend Chloe and everything is met with a great defiance. But things take a weird turn when she meets the one person who is not even shocked by her but encourages her instead. Making her question if her true purpose is as she imagined. It goes long the lines of twisting up her “happily ever after” and punch you in the face with something different.

Any man worthy of you would work for it, Everly. Not sit by passively while you did all”

The fact that Everly was such a dinamite was the thing that kept the whole thing interesting and also the reason some people might not like this book. She is loud, can be obnoxious, self centered (Some times) nosey, delusional, bossy and pretty much lives on dream land. There is not a once of sense going through her head. But that recklessness was what made it super refreshing. She didn’t cry over things when they didn’t happen, she moved on and became the person she wanted to be.she had a plan but that didn’t stop her from having the best life she could have. she socialized  she flirted and she was so confident of herself that it was just the cherrie on top. and she took things she wanted while also working her ass off. and the fact that they place her with that male character took it over the edge.

Sparks do not fly. Chills do not run through my body. I do not suddenly recognize this man as my soulmate based on a handshake. Such bullshit. His hand is nice though. Firm, large. His thumb caresses the back of my hand and fine, that touch alone is enough to make me recognize that he’s probably good in bed. But that’s it.”

This is a fun read but I have to warn you that this book is not one  of those books where there will be tears from how much the story changed you. But it’s a book that makes you see that in life we have to take the opportunities that present to us and forget about the ideal life we want, we just have to enjoy what we have. I felt like I was on a sugar and Redbull high throughout this whole story and i thank Everly for it. and for those super sexy intense scenes that oh my lord (Where’s the fan!)

Story short, read it if you like hype and delusional characters who will make you laugh and see life in a deferent light.

Is it MAY TBR time already!? No way!

I might be one of those people who just thinks the year is going by way to fast, I’m sorry if I am and if I’m constantly repeating that, but man, it is going insanely fast. which means that is TBR time. If you know something about me is that I hate TBRs but I’ve come to the realization that I own too many books and I haven’t touch them so for me to get to them before 2017 I have to speed up the process.

A Christmas from hell By RL Mathewson| Another food story.

Author: R L Mathewson

Series: Neighbors from hell

Publisher: Smashwords Edition

Published Date: December 29th 2015

Gender: Romance & Fiction

Rating: ★★★ (3 OUT OF 5)

GoodReads summary  😀

I don’t know if you’re many familiar with R L Mathewson’s books but if you don’t here is what you should know about them. She is the author of the Neighbors from hell series and there are already 7 books out (Book 1  review), A christmas from hell is that seventh one and they are super funny and kind of sexy.

In a christmas from hell we have Duncan, one half of theBradford twins. He is supposed to be the nice one, the reliable, the one everyone can count on and he likes it that way. He likes to think of himself as a hero, which is why he works as a firefighter. But all that heroism goes down the drain when Necie moves in next door with her grandfather and is constantly “Unintentionally ” getting in his way and sending him to the hospital.

All she wants is to help her grandfather and run her part of the family bakery after quitting her old job and deciding that it was for the best. But she didn’t count on meeting super hot Duncan Bradford. Whom she is always hurting and is totally “in love” with him.

So as far as NFH novels go, I can’t say that it was my favorite. Did I enjoy it? yes I did. Because the thing with the NFH is that you can sort know what to expect, which depending on your taste can be good or bad. They are, like I just said, expected, you buy this book and if you read the other ones you know you’ll get your doses of Bradford alpha male moves, sweet moments, fights, ban restaurants and food. Tons of foods. and usually very cute moments between the main character. This book is funny and entertaining but the reason I down graded my rating from a 4 to 3 was because I felt this book dragged on after the second half. I don know if its because I’m used to her previous fast paced, hilarious books but this one for me was kind of… slow. But equally funny.

Duncan and Necie were super cute and I really liked her and made me want to bake cupcakes. ASAP. And my love for firefighters has grown once again. aww, so many memories ah

So, the question is,Would I recommend this book? yes. But read the other once first so you’re set to embark into the Bradford weirdly food obsessed books.

Publisher: Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Published Date: March 1st 2016

Gender: Romance,Young adult, fantasy & Fiction

Rating: ★★★★★(5 OUT OF 5)

Format: Kindle

   Seventy-one days and seventy-one nights had come and gone since Khalid began killing his brides. This dawn, Khalid would mark the loss of the seventy-second girl, Shahrzad al-Khayzuran. Khalid didn’t know how many more of these dawns he could take. And there was something about this latest girl that piqued his interest. Not only had she volunteered to marry him, but at their wedding ceremony, she had seemed not the least bit afraid. In fact, what he had seen in her eyes was nothing short of pure hatred. She was about to lose her life. Why wasn’t she afraid? Why did she hate him so? He had never before gone to his wife’s chambers before her death at dawn. Tonight would be different.

My thoughts,

So, here’s all I have and will say about this short story. It’s short, way too short. I read it in about 15 minutes. But let me tell you this too,It took me back to the amazing world of the Wrath and the dawn. It showed me, well more like reminded me why I loved Khalid and it just warmed my heart to the fact that in less than two months I will have the next book in my hands. It just gave me enough of an inside to his head to keep me just remembering how awesome he is 🙂

Besides it was free, can’t her better than that. So, my recommendation? Go get it. It’s wroth those 15 minutes.

My Spring TBR |Top Ten Tuesday

Hey you people.

As is usual I am a big fan of lists. Do I follow those lists? eh, that’s a tricky question. Because I am usually making list in life; Grocery (Even if I’m not the one buying them), Favorite songs, What I’ll eat or even about things I plan to buy in the future. because of that I tend to know what I want but it ALWAYS changes, ALWAYS.

Now when it comes to book, I’m the same. I make list of books that I’ve read, books that I’ll read but I hardly ever end up reading them when I say I want to because I’m huge mood reader, something you might already know if you have read any of my previous posts. so…i spaced out…. now I have no idea where I’m going with the list thing to be honest, other than to mention that those lists made this the easiest TTT I’ve ever participated in.

So here are the books wasnt to read this spring. will I read them? who knows, because I don’t.

I’m So Afraid Of Not Finding Purpose

459760239_1280x720

When asked the question, “What are you most afraid of?” a bunch of things come to mind. such as being trap in a burning elevator, getting into a car crash, losing someone important, never finding the love of my life and having him love me back. But when I dig deeper, the one thing that sticks out is the fear of not finding my purpose on this earth.

I’m a huge believer that we are here for a reason and that we’re all meant to do great things. Because as small as things are there are part of why we were placed here. So to me the fact that I’m 22 and I still haven’t found that thing that I’m meant to do is scary.

I’m afraid of going on about life doing things for my personal pleasure instead of doing things for the good of the people around me and beyond. I know that might sound like such a “Kids” thing and way of thinking but I do want and believe I , a single person in a world of billions , can do things to change the world. I want in my life to affect at least ONE persons life, for the better. But the thing is that I Haven’t done it so far. And the way that’s gonna happen is still unknown to me.

But even though I’m afraid, and its unknown I just know and have faith that it will happen. No doubt about it.

MAY 3rd, 2016!

Goodreads

    Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court–but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

    Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms–and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future–and the future of a world cleaved in two.

And Wednesday means that I’m doing my WWW wednesday, it is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a world of words and its by far one of my favorites, but before It made me feel kind inadequate because I almost never followed through on my reading plans. but now I’m just chill with that fact. kind of accepted that I am sort of an unpredictable reader.

So with no further due lets get to tackling this questions.

What are you currently reading?

Well, I am reading the same book I’ve been reading since last year and that I’m making myself finish today. Hopefully today. and that book is, All the bright places by Jennifer niven. I can feel the sadness coming to me.
