MY BEAUTIFUL AMAZING PEOPLE!!
HOW HAVE YOU BEEN BOOKPIC-ers?

Hope it's all well and warm over where you are! Getting tons of reading done and buying books every now and then!

As for me...
Life's been kind of hard with me and my family but we're copping...

Subject change needed there...
The thing is... I was just about to record my amazing Birthday Stacking the Shelves edition when tragedy struck and well I was a mess back then and I couldn't keep the vlog rolling...

ANYWAY.
Now it's been a month and some after that and here I am... Finally back to tire you to death with all my rambling vlogs!

-Giving you a sneak peek here-

-Yeap, that's how much I'll talk on the video...-

So... without anything more to add except a big crushing THANK YOU and some really breath-taking HU…

Ashen Winter Tour Stop ~Book Review + Giveaway~

OH MY GOD.
OH MY CLOUDS!
Guys!!
When I found I had a spot on this blog tour I all but cried of happiness!!!
Most of you know how much I FREAKING LOVED AND OBSESSED OVER Ashfall last year.
And seriously I have no one else to thank but Mike himself!
He's not just a talented author but an amazing person as well!
I admire him and look up to him!! And someday I will definitely meet him hehehe so, you've been warned Mike! :D

Anyway.
The tour's going strong. It started Sept. 23rd over at Mundie Moms and will continue throughout what's left of the month plus the first 2 weeks of October so you're welcome to join ANY TIME!

And now! Without further rambling I present you my thoughts on this AMAZING sequel to an AMAZING book!

Goodreads Shortie:
It’s been over six months since the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano. It’s also been six months of waiting for Alex’s parents to return from Iowa. Alex and Darla decide they can wait no longer and must retrace their journey int…

-reading thoughts- Reaper by Rachel Vincent

[Non edited] As if I already haven't enough reasons to L.O.V.E. Tod this really makes me love him all the way more!! much much more!
quotes such as::

“He’s not like you, Tod. Aside from a couple of notable exceptions, you tend to think things through, but Nash is ruled by his heart—”
I nearly choked on laughter. “I think the organ he’s ruled by is a little farther south, Mom.”

Made me smile so much that I though my lips where going to split or something!!we get to know so much better Tod's personality and find out why he is how and who he is... Love his protectiveness over his little brother Nash...and one big boom for me in this book is we find out Nash's middle name! wich let me tell you I didn't expect it to be THAT ONE at all!!
saceifices and secrets are some strong point by the end of this book...give it a chance!!


I give this novella 5fotitos=~Sobs hard~Too good to be true!

-review- Rage: A Love Story by Julie Anne Peters

Image
[Non edited] Ok...so this is my first Julie Anne Peters book!! and boy!what a book!  I can't believe everything I've been missing out by not approaching any of her books earlier...but enough of that...on to the book
I found myself holding my breath almost through out all of the book...the main character-Johanna- is a lesbian who has come out almost to every body she knows...both her parents are dead and she's a
lways been there for everyone when they needed her...but she's secretly in love with hot-rude-don't-give-a-sh*t-about-the-world Reeve... Johanna thinks she's all she've ever wanted! my point? uhm...Reeve is literally rough...she has this dark side to her that comes out when you least expect it...she has a beautiful brother...Robbie...wich I adored since the beginning...and she comes from a troubled home...she's always trying to push Johanna away...but Johanna remains strong and believes that her love for her is enough to save both Reeve and Robbi…

-rookie review- POP by Gordon Korman

[Non edited]
I started this book not knowing it'll be really hard to read because I'm not so into football...
but as the plot started to develop I knew that it didn't have anything to do with football and all to do with life...
I really liked all the charcters specially Charlie and Marcus...those 2 took my heart! literally...I was bawling my eyes out by the time I read the last sentece on the book...
It's a really good read but for me was a little hard because 1. my native language is not english!
2.because of the 1st reason I didn't understand most of the names of the things involving fb.
but enjoyed it...
Marcus is trying for QB on his new town's high school but ends up on the bench with no one to cheer for him but a middle-aged man who seems to think he's still 16 and in high school and who has a secret thing for being at risky places...the relationship between the 2 principal characters really amazes me...how Marcus seems so drawn to Charlie...and how he gets …

Cover Obsession #15

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 ----------------------------------------
It's been sooo long since I've done one of this! Though not for lack of covers, as I've been obsessing over soooo many it's not even funny. So I think this time I will try will not write anything and just let the covers dazzle you ~winkwink.~

-This wasn't so much of a cover love and more of a FREAKING TITTLE OBSESSION!!!-

GORGEOUSNESS!! 


I want to keep this cover forever! T_T
-This'll be the PB cover, i…

[Non edited] OH.MY.(insert curse word here).GOD!
I tried to take it slow with this book...what with me really not liking Burned...
but seriously people...when will they get rid of Neferet...it just seems that they can't come up with any other enemy or such...that's the only bad thing I found in the book. Now for the
pros from the book...

Oh!! and with the quote!!(and as I said the words I knew it in my gutt...or...I knew the rightness of them...they could really use some new quotes)
-yummy Rephaim!!I knew it was him we'll be seeing more in the book!
-Heath's part in the ending!!!(can't wait for the next book)
-Zoe's decission as to wether get back home or not...
-Nyx's apparent will ti start showing at the last second to save the day
-Kalona's destiny and decissions!!
so basically the book's based on Kalona getting free from Neferet; Rephaim getting free of Kalona; Neferet getting free of light; Stevie Rae getting closer to light and with Rephaim...
AND LOV…

-rookie review- Burned by P.C. & Kristin Cast

[Non edited this was the first time I ever EVER rated a book under 4 stars. Trust me. I was FREAKING OUT, and apparently I really didn't like it haha.] GOD!! my eyes almost burn out trying to get through this whole book...
I give it...3 stars (out of 5)
too much going around and around in circles...TOO MUCH POVS!!

I can handle 2 just fine...but seriously...I lost count of how many people get to tell the story on this book!!
the 3 stars are because...and only because
REPHAIM & STEVIE RAE'S new..."thing"...
The human part of Rephaim drew me sooo much that I'm sooo going to read the next book... but it doesn't make this book any less boring...I really can't believe this is like the first time I've actually finished a book I really started to find boring by the 2nd chapter...but I felt I had to keep an eye on Zoe's whole life...as well as Rephaim's!!! I'm now more drawn to Stevie Rae and Rephaim than Zoe and her whole "I'm a special fl…

To make it short...it starts with Zoe's life full of bullpoop~as she'll call it~
she goes from having an amazing group of friends that are like family to her, a place wher she feels she belongs,TO---being COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY ALONE...her friends don't trust her anymore therefore she doesn't feel like home
and from having 3 exquisit boyfriends(and no...she still doesn't believe she's a ho...even if she's considering it...she's no way acceptin' it...please, just please!)
to having NONE!!!

So yeah her life stinks...and she has to find a way to get them to trust her again...or guess it...
yeap...all hell will break lose if she doesn't...and if she's left all alone...her own life might be in danger...so...again...her strength...her love for her new life and fam! is what get's her going! add that that her old bff is back...and you got yourself another awesome book!!!
couldn't get enough of it...
notice that I try to not give to man…
