-review- This Is War Baby by K. Webster

-Goodreads- "Because the queen always protects the king." And then she whispers the last part. "Even from himself."
I've never been happier about the fact that I rarely read newly released books as I am right now.
But boy am I happy.
I love the name of the series.
I love the name of him and her.
I love and hate everything right now and I'm so incredibly ready to know what in the world will happen in the end. As in the end of the series!
This is a really dark book at the beginning that turns a bit brighter as the story progresses but only a little brighter.
There's a lot of scenes that happen that can potentially trigger some episodes so beware of it.
A lot of physical and psychological abuse.
A lot of mental illness involved.
But aside from that. I am really shocked at how much I liked this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
From the writing, even if there are some typos and editing errors here and there, to how the story flowed and you never really knew w…

Story Time?

Hi guys!
It's been a while, hasn't it?

I had so many goals set for this year, one of them being coming back to the blog and start sharing my reviews again, I wanted to start writing once again as well even vlogging maybe but sometimes even the most thought out and crafted plans can't prepare you for whatever things life might throw at you...

This time I wasn't ready and even if I had seen it coming I still wouldn't have been ready.

You see, my mom got really sick back in 2014, her kidneys had stopped working completely by September/October of that year so she had to get dialysis immediately and she would have to get them at least twice a week since then.
She got sad for a while, my dad got angry, one of my sisters was abroad studying so she couldn't really grasp the concept of what was happening to my mom and my younger sister and I were just here to help pick up the pieces.
But my mom, being the brave and faithful woman she always was and taught my sisters and…

-Review- It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

[... He is. He asked for you. And I know you're with my brother and I'm with child, but can we please just take a moment to silently admire the perfection that is that man?]

(Before the review let me tell you a bit about my reading experience as a whole...Also, I kinda was too emotional so there's a bit of cursing *something I rarely do* so beware.)
I've read a lot of books in my lifetime.
Some were so bad for me I wish I'd had a lighter right there to erase all traces of it from my shelves. Others were so good I constantly struggled with my selfishness to keep the story all to myself and not let anyone read it while at the same time wanting to have tons of people to discuss said good book with.
Then came the gems. The epic books. The books that changed something in me every time I turned that last page and sigh a little contented sigh of happiness or sorrow or sadness or any feeling that happened to be evoked by the ending of the book.
Then came the…

What Books Do I Buy? + Currently Reading!

Image
I'm soon going on a small getaway trip to Orlando!!!!
Woohoo!!!

And it's been a long time since I last bought a book, like a printed book.

So I'm really really really in much need of some help.

I need you guys to recommend me some books you think I'd like :P
You know I'm all about romance, YA, Paranormal, Contemporary, Urban Fantasy, NA, and so on.
So please pretty please help out a booknerd, would ya?

I've gotten some great recommendations so far but I want to make sure I don't pass up on books I'd enjoy hehehe.
I hope y'all help me some.

But before I go I'd just like to share what I'm...

Currently Reading
One to Hold by Tia Louise (So far, it's so sadly predictable and so insta everything I'm kind of wary but I guess it'll be a light and welcoming read compared to the other book I'm reading as well.)
This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp (Now this is being a really intense and suspenseful read so far. I cannot wait to cont…

-BookPics Is Curious- What's on my playlist?

Image
I have no idea if this is a thing or tag or I don't know, but I've googled it and so far I've found only random posts about it when people have been asked what music they listen to so they decide to answer by posting a playlist with their current music choices.

In my case I'll just share one song in my playlist because damnnnn, the thing changes constantly sometimes and other times I keep listening to the same songs for months.

Right now I'm listening to one brand new song along with a really oldie but goodie one.

First one,
너를 위해 (For you) by 첸, 백현, 시우민 (EXO's Chen, Baekhyun, Xiumin)
It's an OST for the drama 달의 연인 - 보보경심 려 (Moon Lovers) in which one of the singers is not exactly starring but he's still in it so... Yeah.

It's amazing. It's romantic. And I love love love the beat and how their voices go together I cannot, I repeat, I cannot stop listening to this song!

For You by Chen, Baekhyun & Xiumin
And the other one as I said is an oldie.

-Book Blast- Vial Things by Leah Clifford

Image
Small intro by moi You guys!
It's been forever since I read a YA book especially one that includes "supernatural" sprinkles.
But I'm so glad I'm reading one right now, even better yet is the fact that it's by one of my very favorite YA authors, Leah Clifford who wrote an epic trilogy some years ago (Check my review of A Touch Mortal and A Touch Morbid and my very short reaction to A Touch Menacing) and if you've yet to read her Touch books I highly recommend that you do!

Currently I'm like 20% in on this newly released book but BOY oh BOY! I was so not prepared for this, for ANY of this.

Hope you take the plunge and check all of her books out.


-hugs-
