Red Queen | *Late* Review from a non-fantasy reader.

BEHOLD! Red Queen has arrive. and as usual I’m extremely late.

When I say this year started with an awesome book I’m not lying. AT all. I picked up Red


Red Queen | Published Feb 10, 2015.

Queen as a recommendation from a FB friend and to be honest I did not what to expect. But somehow the world Victoria created managed to lured me in until I had no say in the matter , and although pretty genetic, I fell completely in love with the characters.
Red queen is set into a world in which your status depends on the color of your blood (YES!) and there are only two of those; The Silvers, which were the elite and posses super powers and the ability to control the elements around them and then you had the Reds, who are the lower class making them basically into slave. Mare barrow who is a red to teh bone and has no other prospects than turning 18 and going into the Army until plans get mix up and she ends up working for the royal family as a servant. It’s not until a moment of fear that makes her and makes he unleash something she didn’t know she had. Now she’s not a red or a silver but something else, something new and more powerful. Something to fear. Living a double life she has to play the game she has to idea how to win.
The story line was very well written but I do have to say that it was confusing, The world building was lacking description and at times I felt lost. I think it could be because I couldn’t really understand in which category this book felt. I felt as if was jumping from historical fiction novel to a dystopian and then jumping back to fantasy and in a way it was that. It confined tons of elements from all of my favorite books making into something great. And I do have to say even if it doesn’t have the most original cast and plot I liked it.
Now rating it I’m conflicted, like I said it was well written and the story line entertaining but I just couldn’t stop myself from comparing this book to the hunger games, I.JUST. COULDN’T. and I guess some people have talked about the selection, book I haven’t read, but at the sometime it was different
Through out the story I found myself happy with the main characters choices which was a plus this AUTHOR killed me with her twists and I loved it. Red queen is a book that’s going to leave you guessing and wondering and you’ll love every second of it even if you feel like you read it before which is weird of me haha . I can’t wait for the next book.

Bottom line is this; red queen is light, entertaining, fast paced and confusing at time. It might take you a bit to get into it and you will probably feel like you have read this before. Now while saying this I have to point out that I enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to the next book and to know what the story hold but keep in mind that I I’m just getting into fantasy so the worlds and concepts are very new and entertaining to me.



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.

I didn’t make a huge list of books because I need to get my hands on A Court Of Mist And Fury (It comes out today!) and some other books I plan to read. But for now I have a small pile that I want to share, if you follow me on IG you might’ve seen it but if not, here it is!

The Siren By Kiera Cass

My life next door By Huntley Fitzpatrick

The Infinite Sea By Rick Yancey 


Letter To That man Who Scared me; I strongly dislike you.

Dear pig man at the grocery store,
I just feel like I need to point out a few things to you. Things that should be ingrained into your human moral but apparently somehow you missed when God gave that out, so here I am; As your personal angel of wisdom,I feel is my duty to point it out a few things since you were very much interested in me yesterday.
Let’s start with the basics here, okay? If you see a girl or a woman or whatever you would describe her (or like you called me “Shorty”) and you find her attractive don’t say things like “DAT ASS IS SMOKING!” or “why don’t you smile more?” and point her out to your friend because I’m 100% sure she doesn’t want to smile at you, she doesn’t want to talk to you and she doesn’t want to be pursued by you.
If you see a woman you like, don’t say disrespectful things like “ Oh need help with those melons?” when she’s reaching for *ding, ding* Melons. or “Is is tight?” when she’s maneuvering a cart full of groceries down an aisle.
If you see a women you desire DO Not follow her aisle after iasle when she clearly is trying to get away from you. Running from you to be exact, making sure to never turn into one of those desolated sections when she has to be alone with you.


She is not there for your entertainment. Its a public place but her body is not, she should not be feeling creeped out by anyone. Specially not you who as a man you be defending women all over.
Don’t ever make a girl scared of you like you did to me. But most importantly, since I did have to endure one hour of this I want to say thank you.
Thank you for making want to cover every inch of my skin. Thank you for making me feel like I was just one object more on the supermarket for you to buy and test. Thank you for making me nervous, as if I need more of that in my like. But most importantly, thank you for making me afraid. Afraid that in any moment you could act on those words. for making me afraid of being alone. For putting me on a situation where I felt afraid of buying food. And also thank you for making me noticed that I am all I have. That I’m the only one who can and did stood out for myself even when others heard and saw all you said and did.

Did you really think i would be flattered by you? By your words? That I would give you my number? My Safety?  If you’re still wondering, the answer is no.
So yeah, thank you I guess. Just remember, Next time? When you see a girl alone in jeans, sneakers and a sweater In the super market buying Kale? That maybe all she wants is Kale. Not your demeaning words and obscene gesture.

When does this stop? When do men stop?

From: The girl who was basically shaking when she left the supermarket. but since of course I’m “Just  a girl” I will leave further info for you buddy *Resting Bitch Face now*

   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.




I’m So Afraid Of Not Finding Purpose


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. 


What are you  most afraid of?!

Beyond the Books is a weekly meme hosted at KBK. where she throws out a topic (mostly non-bookish), and you guys blog about it. This is my first time participating and I love it 🙂


WWW Wednesday| From a former Snowed in friend!

                                                         Happy Hump Day! 🙂
I think the proper term for those of us who are in the northeast would be “Happy day where you can actually (Finally) see pavement and street signs”. Its been a hellish last 4 days for us (me) with all the snow that Jonas decided to dumped on his way, but luckily it looks like we might be getting some type of normalcy from now on.
As someone who had been studying abroad and hadn’t come back home in the last year I can honestly say that it has been a difficult transition for sure. My hands hurt when I step outside and my face gets bitch slapped when I as much as look into the outsides of my home. Fun right? well yes, it can be. If I NEVER go outside (Yeah right) so to numb the ice of coldness I’m usually wrap-up in a series of blankets. Like I am right now.

So since it’s Wednesday and im in a blanket, ignoring the world around me, i decided to do WWW Wednesday. I haven’t done this post in months so its see how it goes! t’s a meme  hosted by MizB at Should be reading (Former host) but is not revived by Sam Ann Elizabeth at Taking on a world of words and all you have to do Is answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?

Im currently reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. It was recommended to me recently and to be honest the cover won me over, because hello. snow. snowed in? yeah. so far its amazing.


What did you recently finished reading?

Absolutely nothing. I’ve had the worst reading slump of my entire life and I just recently (yesterday) manage to get into a book. so the last book I read was back in November…yeah. can’t remember which it was.

What do you think you’ll next?

Since im beginning to realize that I am a major mood reader im not exactly sure which book ill read next but the one I want to read next is “Every Last Word” by Tamara Ireland stone. I started reading it bacon novegebr and it was pretty good, so I want to finish that.



   Now that I’ve complained about the snow I can say I feel a bit better about the whole situation (HAHA)  But , What have you guys been reading lately? any awful slumps lately?

Favorite Book Couples! (well… some)

Hey guys! 🙂

  So this past month was a month of love for me, in the sense that all the books I read and bought were romance. which lead me to think about book couples.




= Thoughts of fictional couples

see, math? aah it was very hard picking some of them and even though I made the list , it is a list that’s ever changing, some go down on the list some move up and some appear. But i manage to pick 10 who have been on my list and I’m in love with their relationships.

So with no more delay here are SOME of my favorite couples.

Book Review: Never Never By Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

23383567Tittle: Never, Never

Author: Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher

Length: 129 Pages

Series: Never, Never #1

Publisher:  Smashwords Editions

Published Date:  January 8Th On Ebook

Gender:  Romance,  Young Adult, Mystery  & Contemporary

Rating: ★★★★★ ( 5 OUT OF 5).

Best friends since they could walk.
In love since they were fourteen.
Complete strangers since this morning.
He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.

My thoughts!

Okay. My brain. What is going on? Who is this possible?

   I’ve had this book on my I pad for a week now, and today was the day I put on my big girl panties and read it. And now I’m just…Ughhh! I need the ending? NOW!

Now, with the review. After sitting in bed for 30 minutes starring at the cover and trying to think of a way to describe this…book.

I am a big Co-ho Fan, though I’ve never read anything by Tarry Fisher. This book is so complicated, if you were to ask me what gender this is, I couldn’t tell you, Is it YA? Is it romance? Is it paranormal? Is It mystery?  I just don’t know. I felt as if they took all of those gender put them in a bowl and somehow made a decadent Chocolate cake. Or Ezras grilled cheese J

It was nothing like I expected. And I didn’t know what to expect to giving with , given that in all the reviews I’ve read people are as confuse as I felt. I just now it worked. I was anxious with the last part, because people were freaking out about the cliffhanger but I never, NEVER would have thought THAT WAS IT!  It killed me. I literally face planted my bed and screamed for about 30 seconds after those last words. I was surprise, again, at how funny it could be, how sensual it was given their circumstances.

Throughout the book we get to see Silas and Charlies POV. I honestly didn’t know who wrote with part, Colleen or Tarryn but both of them were Amaze-balls. When I found out who did who I was so happy. Colleen hoover just has a way of writing male characters ( Like Miles! Like Holder! Like Will!) That you just have to fall in love. Even with everything that was going on I loved Silas. And with Charlie! Man I felt her frustration, her panic, everything.

Anyways, I really thing you guys should read this book. It’s so different and although I would have prefer 1 book instead of 2 I’m happy and thinking about it. For shock value? It was so worth it!



“I’m Tetris Silas. All my pieces and parts are going to fit into all of your pieces and parts.

“You think you can make me like you again?”
I look over at her and give my head the slightest shake. “No. I’m gonna make you fall in love with me again.”

“Everything about her is captivating, like the aftermath of a storm. People aren’t supposed to get pleasure out of the destruction Mother Nature is capable of, but we want to stare anyway. Charlie is the devastation left in the wake of a tornado.”

The Premise Is Here! ❤ GoodReads!

I tried to make it a mini review hehe

                                                         I was so happy and I was so mad at the same time.

“I can’t go back through time and change things, but I can move forward and create the life I want.”

     This book was one of those books where I had so many mix-fellings about. On the one hand I loved it, the mystery, the heartbreak the happiness at the confessions, how much more we learned from them… but on the other hand I felt it like it was dragging after I was halfway through the book and I just wanted to finish it. I think it was equally as good and I enjoyed it but man, where there time where I wanted to smack some sense into Callie and Kayden. The issues that this book talks about are as deep as the first one and even more so and there were moments that i was left speachless

To be honest I didn’t love it as much as the first one (Link to My Review) but I was happy with this one. It made for a good ending. I love the mystery, the way we never wondered what each of them thought because it was right there. I usually have a problem with not knowing how the other person in the book is feeling but this one is great that way. They love they both had for each other, they way they tried to protect each other and how at the end it was enough to move on.

as every book, this one has some great redeeming qualities that made me forget about wanting to basically confront Kayden and that is Seth and Luke. ❤ specially Seth, Always Seth although Luke was amazing too. They where the exact definition of what best friends should be; Loyal, accepting, Present, understanding and never judging. They pulled this book so much further and I felt in love with them.

  All in all A 3,5 is not a hate review from me but an Okay one. I don’t think I would read this book again but I might recommend it. Oh and can we just say Cliffhanger ? After those last 2 pages I was so torn between buying the next book or just moving on…. I think I’ll buy it. ❤ Don’t worries.. It’s not about Callie and Kayden but about Luke ❤

Oh Luke! ❤

I need to wake up and believe that everything is okay instead if hoping it will be. I want to be one of the lucky ones who has a good life.”

I nod I want that for her too. “you can still get that. just tell me what makes you happy.” she looks at me tears streaming down her cheek “you”
