-review- Silver by Talia Vance

Image
Goodreads shortie:
Brianna has always felt invisible. People stare right past her, including the one boy she can't resist, Blake Williams. But everything changes at a house party where Brianna's charm bracelet slips off and time stands still. In that one frozen, silver moment, Blake not only sees her, he recognizes something deep inside her she's been hiding even from herself.
******
The characters-scenery: I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved each and every single character in this book. I've rummaged through all my mind and vocabulary and I've come up empty-handed.
Whether I was reading a scene with Brianna or with Blake, with Austin or with Chelsea, with Joe or with Haley. 

I am truly at a loss.
ALL the characters made me feel, ALL characters inspired emotions. 

Whether I was laughing or crying or cursing-yes, this book made me curse people T_T and I don't curse at all! I'm even surprised I knew how!-or smiling or melting or getting all hot and bo…

-rookie English & Spanish review- If I Stay by Gayle Forman #YASaves

Image
[Non edited] OMG! This book literally took my breath away...
I LOVE the way it's written! like lyrics from a song or something...
the life of this girl Mia...leaves you speechless...
one moment you're having breakfast with your family the next one...you're totally alone, with not one person being able to help you but yourself!

Mia has to choose between coming back to life as "she doesn't know it" or simply give in and reunite with her whole family...is it worth it to stay in this world?
or is it going to be too much to bear?
will the love from the people still alive be enough?
will Adam, Kim, gran, gramps, Henry, Willow be reason enough for her to decide to stay??
it's a really realistic and touching story, a one that made tears run down my face with me not noticing until they wet some of the pages from the book...

I give this book 10special-fotitos(special rating for over-the-top-I'll-never-get-over-this book) =
I cried for things I didn't know possible I …

-rookie review- Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Image
[Non edited] I know that when I read the first hunger games book I said that it reminded me form the Uglies series...not anymore! AT ALL!!
this book...from start to finish was a world on it own...I mean...you can practically feel it happening all around you...
I think I would never EVER! be able to overcome everything Katniss manages to on this 3rd and last book...
who's the enemy? who's your friend? who to trust????really really trust??
when to give up? when to kill? when to speak? when to kiss? when to CRY??
if the book ended up with Katniss not crying at all over all the loses she's had over all the books I would've ended up not liking the book at all...
but GOD!! did it blew me away! between rescuing Peeta, trying not to loose the only true friend she's had her entire life Gale, watching as her sister Prim grows up without her being able to prevent it, following orders from yet another president who seems to have a liking for games as well as Snow, Coin, and an endl…

I'll just go ahead and say I loved this book so much more than the first one...really...it's just that it hooked me right from the beginning while the 1st only achieved to do that like halfway through the book...
well...anyways...LOVED IT! I CAN'T STOP REDING THIS! IT WAS WORTH EVRY MINUTE OF IT...EVEN FIND MYSELF WANTING TO GO BACK TO PARTS OF THE BOOK THAT I FEEL I SHOULD'VE SPEND MORE TIME READING...
I really can't see how they're going to manage doing all this things from the book into a movie but it BETTER BE GOOD!!
again...love Katniss and her new dilema of living or dying for...
what's worth more?? her life? or Peeta's??
glad we get to see more of every character in here...
from BFF GALE to president Snow...
and really take pitty on Katniss...when everyone you trusted betrayed you and the ones who haven't they make sure to let you know they don't want your trust but your life...when everything you believed is not anymore...when the o…

-rookie review- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Image
[Non edited]
I have to admit that at first I got this feeling of dejavú from The Uglies series...
still...way out of proportion^^
loved the whole idea of the hunger games and the world as it is...
so...Katniss(had a hard time remembering our heroine's name...but I think I've manage it) resuming has lost her father, mother too by not being able to trust her,and the only ones left for her are pr
im her little 12 year-old sister and her bff Gale...
they do EVERYTHING together...so when she finds herself going to the hunger games with no other but the boy responsible for being alive until that very moment...the world turns up-side-down!
they literally have to kill every other 22 kids from 12 to 18 that go from the other 11 districts apart from hers and Peeta's...(the GUY)
everything goes...uhm...let's say right...until the rules of the game changes and she has to depend not only on herself but on other people too...(don't want to spoil anything)
I guess that's as far as I&#…

-rookie review- Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler

Image
[Non edited] Really hard-sad-happy-tear-filled story... I started this book not so sure if I would be able to enjoy it let alone finish it. But ended up so captured in the story of Lisa that I couldn't decide wether to laugh or be mad at her.
She struggles definitely completely fights with herself to be THIN!!ugh!!
the way Kessler put this story into words left me wondering if there could be an answer to all o
f our problems that could be that simple and yet because of its simpleness we don't see it 'cause we're always thinking that the answer to all of our problems have to be BY FACT difficult and hard to reach.
So seeing this girl fighting with anorexia thinking that it's her againts the world, that she alone has the BIGGEST problem of the universe, realize that when she is neglecting herself to EAT to be HEALTHY there are people all around the world dying for that pice of lettuce she just threw up...
A really down-to-earth yet magic-filled story of anorexia and the …

Here's today's picture.

BookPics is Curious- Blog Tours

Image
-Lol I wanted to make a button but this seemed easier and faster. For now-
Hey my beautiful people!
Hope you're all having fun reading all the amazing books or writing or smiling or you know the usual haha... Whatever that is ^__________^

Anyway.

Lately I've been seeing a lot of Book blog tours going on.

When I first started to stalk book pages on facebook I never even saw a link to a blog tour, let alone know what one was supposed to be about.

Later on I found out about book blogs but only randomly saw the famous post titled 'Tour Stop' or 'Blog Tour Giveaway' or things between those lines... I almost never read the posts, I mean, I didn't know what they were and as ignorant as I was I don't think I ever stopped to discover just what the post was about.

I think it took me almost a year to discover that the famous 'Tours' were all about promoting a book before, when, and after their scheduled release dates.

Believe me, I thought it was genius an…
