Bookography #13

Image
Bookography is a post created by Kristina from Kristina's World of Books. Where you can combine both of my very favorite things in the world. Photography & Books ;) So grab a camera and do your thing. You don't have to be a professional or anything like that. Just share your love of books through a picture and that's it ;) -She usually posts them on wednesdays~ 
So make sure you stop by her blog and share the love!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


No introduction, though I've been thinking that I need to post more pictures than just the one I post while on Wednesdays-yeap I know today's friday hehe-I mean after all the blog IS called BookPICS<--- 
But the thing that's keeping me from doing that is the time it takes to somewhat mark the pictures or watercolor them :/ but there's just so much time I can spend doing that...so sometimes I'll post pictures that say I took them and sometimes not... Now I jus…

-review- Easy by Tammara Webber

Image
I tried my best, beautiful people.  And I hope that I made a good-enough review.  Forgive me if I didn't.
My lips were sensitive and tingly. Touching them brought rushes of gooey memories-his hands, and what they'd done in concert with his mouth-the crazy-making kisses, and the few words he'd spoken.  You're so beautiful.
Note-This is a matureYA book. I wish I could tell you exactly how this book will make you feel.
I wish I had words beautiful enough to describe it.
I wish I knew more english words than I know now to detail just how the writing of the story got to me.
I wish I could warn you of the many times my heart felt squeezed so tight I thought it might explode.
I wish I had written down all my favorite passages but that would mean writing down the whole book again.
I wish I could sit here and pretend to be able to sell you the book I think every single person out there needs to have.
I wish upon the stars that I could be wherever Tammara Webber is and be able to…

Cover Obsession #4

Image
Cover Obsession is a feature here on BookPics. -I really don't know if anyone else does it as I do but I'm not trying to steal any other ideas out there- In which I tell you what new book covers I'm completely in love with, pinning for, drooling over, tearing-up over, going all OH CLOUD! on and all the other AMAZING-FANTASTIC-AWESOME-BOOKPIC-LY verbs and adjectives and adverbs you can think of that just simply aren't enough to describe how I feel towards said covers so,  I just go ahead and OBSESS over them :D -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I think I see a trend or two in here... but just to be sure.
Take a look.

My Reading Pile #14

My reading pile is an idea created by Fiktshunin which you share what your reads for the week are or well the wishful reads-rereads-rerereads and well you get the hint. Check her blog out, I've self-declared myself her #1 Stalker/Follower.

MRP progress & status:
-I think I'm sick.
That HAS to be it. How can someone not finish a book in a month?
It's not that I don't have the time... And I'm DYING to read... But maybe I'm getting TOO distracted these days.
I feel like blaming my blogoversary :D Because I was so excited posting and scheduling posts and interviewing and all for all the celebration and the 2 weeks that it lasted that I got easily easily distracted.
Maybe NOW I'll finally be able to FINISH~please please please I want to finish and move on to new books~the books on my reading pile :D


I did manage to start and finish a book I got in the mail. Then again it was from one of my favorite authors and one I had been waiting to read for a…

-BookPics is Curious- Shelves&Blog Button

Image
~BookPics is Curious~
Forgive me? Oh Clouds! : /
I think these last few weeks have been full of apologies here on the blog.
But I had promised on the last post to make a quick vlog for the ending of the blogoversary celebration.
And I couldn't do it, thanks to my stubbornness, I decided to quickly<- Notice that I said QUICKLY <- change shelves, and took all my books to the built-in one that's in the house dinning room... let me tell you... I started at 4:30pm and ended at 11:30pm WHERE is the QUICK in THAT?

And instead of going through everything I did to actually make the shelf change and make yo as tired as I ended up. I'll post some pictures so you can get the idea :D

You can see now that the vlog was a no-go because I was dirty, tired, sleepy, breathless, and everyone at home was asleep and I CANNOT for the love of  all that's holly up on the clouds, be quiet and …

T_________________________________________________T
Insert me having a complete freak out. Melt down. Anything 'down'.
GUESS WHO IS HERE TODAY!!!!!!!!!
OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~freaks out some more~
I cannot believe it!!!
It has finally happened.


I gave in and stalked even more than my stalking persona would have thought I was capable of stalking and interviewed, well it was actually more of a question attack, my favorite blogger in history.


Really, if you don't believe me you just have to ask her and that's it...I don't know how she hasn't ran away crying out for help-not that it'd help her much, I'd still stalk her blogs-hehe but anyway, it's Rachel from Fiktshun, Fiktshun Ramblings, My Reading Pile and Fiktshun After Dark...see??? I have plenty of material to stalk hehehe.


She has been amazing to me. 
Always. 
Since day one. 


I have no complaints no bad comments not anything she's really the blogger I look up to. So of course I was a…

~shudders~
Don't read it alone in your living room, that has an entire glass wall looking to the front shard without any type of curtains or blinds, at 1:am while your dogs are howling like someone just died...


And the picture. I was playing with the flash of my camera and this is one of the results of being curious hehe I simply put …

-Blogoversary- Quick Question Attack with Author Daisy Whitney

Image
Another day, another guest!
Today we have the AMAZING author of the AMAZING book The Mockingbirds which I've already read and reviewed HERE.
Daisy WhitneyI met Daisy over a year ago and I couldn't believe how approachable she was and still is! She's really awesome and takes the time to check all the comment/stalkings I make on her page hehehe. So when I suddenly out of nowhere asked her if she could do this she said YES! Can you believe it? I was over the moon!!! Thanks to her I won one of my very first SIGNED books by an author whose books I AM COMPLETELY ADDICTED TO, Gayle Forman author of 'If I Stay' and 'Where She Went'.
Well on to what you're here for.
I did a 5-quick-question-attack to Daisy and here are her answers.





1. Hi Daisy!! Thanks for letting me interview you on such a short
notice! And Welcome to BookPics! (When I send the questions to her I was reading -> The Mockingbirds) and loving each bit of it
and I was wondering...do you have any books …

1. Could you describe yourself in 3 words?
Shy. Creative. Unique.


2. What's your current read?
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare


3. If you could be one female character of any book you've read who would it be and why?
I instantly thought of Meghan Chase from The Iron Fey Series, it’s been my top read ever since I read it, I will always love it and love the men in it. So yes, I choose her because she’s a strong woman and shes been through a lot and this book made me love faeries and plus I want to meet Ash an…

Blogoversary Question-Attack- With Kristina @Kristina's World of Books

Image
Another day of celebrating.
And...well I think you know by now how I love making the same questions to different people...this is no exception. 
I'm a stalker of the person whose interview you're about to read...but mostly...I'm a stalker of her photographs.
I participate on her meme -Bookography-
When I first started the blog I did a feature that was called BookPic of the week, in which I shared any of the pictures I took and related it or quoted it with some of my favorite books...but then I found Kristina's feature :D and well...decided to support her and stopped doing mine :D someday along the way...I'll start a feature of my own...but for now I leave you with;
