Guys Participating in my very first BLOG HOP!  YEY!

-review- A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford

Image
First of all...I had so many amazing quotes or little excerpts or just scenes in the book...and narrowing down to 1? simply put is:IMPOSIBLE! So I'll have to squeeze 2 or 3 through the review ;)


--He noticed her giving him the once-over and smiled in a way no gay boy in history had ever smiled at a girl.--


About the book:
How to start? Begging for the second one? Thanking for this one? Crying that it's over? Laughing that it really isn't over? Recoil from the pain it caused? Embrace the reality that shows?
So many starts and not one of them is good enough!


I cannot believe it. It took me almost an entire week to finish this book(even though Leah and Rachel say is because I had to read it in my computer.) Anyways, I can't wait to start it all over again, soon. 


Leah, ladies and gentleman, Leah Clifford is a master of TORTURE and a force to be reckoned with. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


Filled with amazing moments that came out of nowhere and at the same time from a place that, deep i…

-review- A Season of Eden by Jennifer Laurens

Image
-"Don't you have a boyfriend?" I shook my head, fingering my bag. "That surprises me," he said.
"Because I seem like a girl that would have a guy around?" I finished.
"No." He started toward the light switch and I followed. "In my experience, the beautiful girls are always taken."-


WOW! just WOW-makes the wow face-
This book people, this book is just a complete season on it's own, it isn't fall or winter, nor summer or spring it's a whole other season concept and one I might forever be in love with and forever be waiting to happen in my life or at least in my country's weather ;)
Jennifer Laurens you made this book a complete piece of art for me.


Since the beginning of the book I felt all warm inside; predicting that I was in for a h*** of a book.
Eden was/is/will be one of my favorite characters and one very very real character.
Since she sets her eyes on Mr.Christian she suddenly has a thing for all things mature.(Having …

Photographic Inspiration #1

Image
Yes people, that's part of the moon...


This shot, sadly, wasn't taken this week but it was one of the few I haven't posted over in the BookPics Facebook Page.






Anyways... this is the photo inspiration for me this week.[I love that out of all the dark black sky that night...there was, somewhere, somehow a light.]
It seriously inspired me to think about what I'm afraid of, the dark? The light?
But going back to the question...Dark? Light?
I know that most people are afraid of the dark contrary to daylight. 
Turns out I'm so weird that even in that I don't agree with those of you that feel that way.
I'm completely terrified of daylight, because I can actually see every little thing that comes across my path at any given -daylight- time. So I much prefer night time, when anything might try and spook me but it won't because I won't be able to see a thing. What can I say? I seriously think ignorance is a complete bliss!


Found any inspiration on this week's pho…
