Hello, dearies! As you might know from previous lists and posts, I don’t usually do this kind of post, but I thought that for Halloween I should try, though I don’t know how it will since when asked questions like these ones, I usually go blank and forget all the books I have ever read, lol, I know.Continue reading
Series: The Lunar Chronicles
Author: Marissa Meyer
Genre: Sci-fi, fantasy, romance (sort of), YA, Dystopia, Retellings
I think this is going to take a little while to come together.
After all the scary moments, all the times I said, this is it, this is where she kills them, her, him, one of them is going to be left alone and wandering without love, then another of my fav would come into the scene and there I was again thinking the same, what a rollercoaster.
It doesn’t usually happen that I find a book to have me gaping, almost screaming, nearly crying, laughing, insulting the characters, but the best ones do, or at least does that make you go in and be part of the story for real, feel all that they are feeling, intense, magical, heartwarming, all those little things we feel while reading Winter.Continue reading
Alright so here’s the problem when you are a booklover, bookworm, bookfanatic, whatever you want to call it… you end up having a lot of boys and sometimes girls in your life; because the more you read, the more you have characters to add to a never-ending list of fictional characters to love from many books in different genres.
A long time ago, there was this post I wrote about Favourite Books and Characters and it was good and all, but you see since then there have been so many other books and hence many main characters that have come to my attention, which I can’t put here because it will be the longest list…. Well not the longest that would be in like in a year or more from now when I read even more and have other amazing characters to talk about.
But going back to the present, and why I am rambling here today… I thought it will be nice to have a little reminder of some of the characters so far; you might not agree, you might think that I am wrong or crazy but it is my list after all and perhaps you will discover we have similar taste in books.
I simply have to do this… Because if I don’t, then I might explode… We love The Immortal Instruments and we (fans) are hoping for the TV Series to begin in 2016, and while we do that…. Nothing, there is only this ‘at the edge of your seat’ feeling that won’t go away. The have casted some good actors, I might not agree with All of their choices but I am determined to give them all the benefit of the doubt, well there is one with whom I don’t have to do that because I am certain he’ll be great. If you haven’t read the books, I shall remind you to do so immediately because I am not holding back here…
Katherine McNamara and Alberto Rosende will be our star and her childhood friend (I’m sorry is that spoiler? Don’t think so everyone should have read the books by now, at least one); Dominic Sherwood (Benefit of the doubt), Emeraude Toubia (BOTD), and Matthew Daddario will be portraying our lovely group of young Shadowhunters siblings (Again… this is for the fans). And Harry Shum Jr. (The one I look forward to…) will be portraying, bringing to life, making us think that a hot warlock from Brooklyn is possible, Harry as Magnus Bane, which I admit make me very happy in case you didn’t notice, I have high hopes for Harry I think he will be awesome…
Author of Take Me Tomorrow

Hello, everyone. Today I bring to you a special post with a Q&A about Take Me Tomorrow and plus some interesting details about its author, awesome Shannon Thompson, who was nice enough to respond to my ramblings about the book, which if you haven’t read please go here and found out more, or read the review I made couple of days ago: Take Me Tomorrow Review. If you haven’t read the book, I strongly recommend that you do not read the upcoming lines because it may contain some spoiler. That’s it, let us start.
Q&A Take Me Tomorrow
- Q: I am sure you’ve been asked this but, is there going to be a sequel?
Author: There is a sequel – Take Me Yesterday – as well as a third novel – Take Me Now – written, but neither have guaranteed contracts to be published. Sharing the novel around by reviewing it helps out a lot!
- Q: Tell me, what inspired you to write about Take Me Tomorrow?
Author: Long story short, my mother was a drug addict, and she died from her addiction when I was eleven years old. Through coping, I spent a lot of time researching about drugs, drug use, drug abuse, and more. Take Me Tomorrow was born. If you want the long story, I wrote more about this on my website: Why I Write About Immigration, Drugs, and Addiction

So about The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, haven’t finish it yet. 62% and now is getting exciting although I’m still waiting to get surprised I don’t know if it is that I was measuring all the possibilities while Cassie (main character) was talking/thinking delusional thoughts throughout the whole book or if I am just deductive or maybe Rick wrote it in that way so WE, the readers, would know but Cassie wouldn’t. I had one surprise many chapters ago but the rest I was: Yes, exactly. What else could it have been?
I am not saying the book is bad; it’s great actually, I was just pointing those parts out. The worst as usual (lately) is that I have to wait until September 16th 2014, supposedly, to read the 2nd part (*sigh*).
