    The Survival Kit

    Author: Donna Freitas Published: October 11th 2011 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) Rating: Can loss lead to love? Not because the story is about death it has to be lonely. I did not cry when I read this book. On the contrary, I was smiling. I smiled because I’m happy for Rose that after months of wallowing over her mother’s death she is starting to move on. With the help of a survival kit that her mom left her.—

    Spell Bound

    Author: Rachel Hawkins Series: (Hex Hall #3) Published: March 13th 2012 by Hyperion Book CH Rating: I’ll take this opportunity to say my piece about this series since I didn’t have the chance to write anything about the first two books (because I was lazy). All in all, the Hex Hall series is one of the most refreshing books I have ever read. Where the protagonist—Sophie Mercer really deserves to be the main lead. The combination of humor and sarcasm—

    Week 13. Waiting on Wednesday

    It’s Wednesday again. What book/s are you looking forward to reading? “Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases much awaited upcoming releases. Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone Expected publication: October 9th 2012 Publisher: Hyperion Format/Pages: Hardcover, 384 pages Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco.

    The Immortal Rules

    Author: Julie Kagawa Series: (Blood of Eden #1) Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by Harlequin Teen Rating: I received an eARC from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley. Thank you. Never doubt Julie Kagawa’s mad writing skills. She writes and she delivers. Even if it’s about vampires. And here I thought there has been vampire overkill in young adult fiction lately. I speak too soon. It’s about vampires alright, but it’s different. It was awesome. And I want more! I’m absolutely delighted how—

    Week 13. What’s on my Reading List?

    It’s Monday again! Time to set my reading priorities. This is a weekly meme featured here—on my blog, where I present you the books I’m planning to read for the entire week. I decided to do this in order to declutter my ever piling TBR. I decided to stop reading The Immortal Rules momentarily, as I wanted to put it on this week’s set. Hopefully, I’ll be able to finish it by tomorrow so I have the review up within—

    Amplified

    Author: Tara Kelly Published: October 25th 2011 by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) Rating: My heart has a sweet spot for musically inclined books. So when I found out that Tara Kelly’s Amplified is about a girl who dreams of becoming a musician, I told myself I need to read it. So my reaction? Good, funny and nice. Amplified is a subtle and feminine version of Harold Sakuchi’s Beck (Mongolian Chop Squad). I super duper liked that manga. But unlike—

    Pretty Crooked

    Author: Elisa Ludwig Series: (Pretty Crooked #1) Published: March 13th 2012 by Katherine Tegen Books Rating: Do two wrongs ever make it right? Pretty Crooked for me is a sad attempt to combine Robin Hood, Mean Girls and some makeover TV show. While I love the idea of a modern day version of Robin Hood but unfortunately the way the story was presented was too far-fetched and irrational to make it work. If robbing rich people and giving it to—

    Week 12. Fave that “Qoute”

    My favorite quotes are the star of this post! :loves: Here’s a meme where I share my favorite quotes. I’ll pick my favorite quote from a book that I have I already read, then just post it. I may also add a brief reason why I like it. Entice by Carrie Jones Published by: Bloomsbury I will find your wolf.  I want you to want me because you want me, not because of grief, not because he is not here.—

    Features: Snap Shot

    Love books in print? Me too! As much as I love e-books because they’re convenient, I still prefer paper books. I love everything about it; front, back, spine and occasional freebies inside. They deserve some spotlight! :wow: Nothing beats the feel of a physical book. So here’s a meme where I appreciate the book’s entire aesthetic. Besides, there are no rules against superficial appreciation, right? Both are in paperback edition (‘coz I’m paperback girl). One of my favorite book covers—

    Special: The Hunger Games (Movie)

    I stopped whatever I was doing this day (although I’m super excited to continue reading the Immortal Rules. I’m one luck bi—, er, girl that I got to read it this early). Guess, what???! Guess what??! I just watched The Hunger Games. Yes, peeps. I did and it was awesome. I was planning to write this in my fandom blog (which up until now is still in WIP status). Hey, it’s still book related so I’m not steering away from—

    Pure

    Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout Series: (Covenant #2) Published: April 3rd 2012 by Spencer Hill Press Rating: The best way to enjoy Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Covenant series is to forget that it is similar to Vampire Academy. Try not to dwell too much if you find another similarity (because you will, I guarantee you). Push those thoughts far, far, far away. But if you haven’t read Richelle Mead’s popular Vampire series then…well, I wouldn’t say lucky—despite my annoyance with how the—

    Week 12. Waiting on Wednesday

    It’s Wednesday again. What book/s are you looking forward to reading? “Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases much awaited upcoming releases. Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill Expected publication: November 13th 2012 Publisher: Delacorte Format/Pages: Hardcover, 290 pages Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question. It’s one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall—

    The Savage Grace

    Author: Bree Despain Series: (The Dark Divine #3) Published: March 13th 2012 by EgmontUSA Rating: The Dark Divine < The Lost Saint > The Savage Grace The Savage Grace is the final book of the trilogy. Sad to say, I was disappointed and quite underwhelmed. Maybe it’s me…maybe it’s was my huge expectations. I was perhaps expecting too much. I really liked The Lost Saint, and was fervent to know how the story will conclude. While it wasn’t dreadful (far—

    Week 12. What’s on my Reading List?

    It’s Monday again! Time to set my reading priorities. This is a weekly meme featured here—on my blog, where I present you the books I’m planning to read for the entire week. I decided to do this in order to declutter my ever piling TBR. This is a very ambitious set. I was perhaps lucky when I managed to read 5 books last week (Forgiven by Jana Oliver + Rivals by Lauren Kunze & Rina Onur). I feel super accomplished.—
