-review/thoughts- Hushed by Kelley York

-The apartment was silent. Not the sort of silence when one was home alone, but the smothering silence that followed death. An all-encompassing, heavy feeling.-

This is what happens when someone somewhere writes a book. Make that an amazing breathtakingly painful/amazing book. And then...I read it.
I am left utterly and completely shocked out of my shoes. I am left begging for more story. I am left begging for more pages to appear out of thin air just to know what happens next and next and next.
Kelley, with this book-Hushed-I can tell you I love you till the ends of ends. 
My heart constricted more times that I cared to count.
I fell in love with not one but two guys.
I want to keep them so bad it hurts.
You made me remember some really painful memories of my life with the only difference that now I don't feel how I used to. Empty-alone-guilty-lonely-not good enough.

-Maybe she could learn what it was like to always be left behind.-

How can I even begin to describe what a complex of a person and character Archer is. He's so broken I wanted to patch him back up and run. He was so sick I wanted to run away from him. He was so faithful I envied him. He was so shy I related. He was dark and vengeful and alone I wanted him to be happy forever.

-Do monsters get second chances?-

Vivian. ~Sighs~ Vivian was/is a character I know in person, that's why I could start to hate her so early in the book. I don't even know how you made it Kelley, let me tell you. But you really really dug out that memory and put it up front for the days it took me to read this book. I had my Vivian in real life years ago. Of course by that time I was some kind of Archer. And now while reading this book I could only think of how pathetic I was and how good it felt to finally let go. 
Kelley made Vivian's character so completely real, believe me...you'd feel exactly what I felt like and you will want to do to her exactly what I wanted hehehe.
Marissa's character (Vivian's mom) is the grandmother I wish I had and never will. PERFECT.
Evan, he's mine and mine only. How can someone love so completely and be so selfless while also drawing a line and put limits. He loves himself and that's what I loved and love the most about him. He loves others adoringly and cares for them and is there whenever someone needs him. But he also makes time for do his things and values himself. He's the very best friend. Of course he makes mistakes of course! He can make millions of mistakes but with whatever one good thing that he does, it outshines that million.

-"You should go back to sleep."
What better way to wake him up completely.-

All the secondary characters where incredibly main characters for me. The story wouldn't be the same without each and every single one of them.
I cried. I laughed. I smiled. I melted. I melted some more. I gasped. I wanted to smash something a lot of times in a row. I wanted to kiss Archer. I wanted to hug Vivian. I wanted to kiss Evan after Archer.
As always you know I'm a stinker for books that have the tittle inside the book at some point. I'm the happiest reader alive right now.
Most of all I wanted the book to never end.
I don't know how to make this book justice. I don't know how to make you guys understand how amazing it is and how completely sad and happy I am that I read it. Sad because I'm left begging for more and happy because it just was so...devastatingly beautiful I don't think I'll be able to stop rereading it for a long time.
Kelley York where have you been all my reading-life?
I am forever your reader/fan and cannot wait to read whatever you plan on writing next.

-"Hush, it'll be all right..."-

When playing by your rules means killing for love...
What happens next?
When you don't feel good enough...
And, everyone lets you down...
What next?
There is someone who believes in you. There is hope. There is love. There are happy tears. There are cozzy hugs. There are a million kisses waiting for you.
If...you..just...stop...think...forget...let go...and...Love.
Forgiving yourself is the first part...let time and your heart lead the way after that.

I know this post isn't making any sense-I wrote it exactly right after finishing the book.- I'm really sorry for that. But I think you can all get that I LOVED this book and that you should really really read it. After all this is more of thoughts than review hehehe.

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 was capable of.

Special thanks to Rachel@Fiktshun, you made me want this book *-* 
OH WOMAN do I thank you for that!

IMM#16 -The Forbidden One-

IMM is hosted by The Story Siren I looove love her blog! So you really should check it out!

As always. My video turned out to be too long and rambling and every single time I tried to edit it or cut it my computer would just fail me T_T I hate my video right now...but be sure. 
It was full of me being so happy my face hurts from smiling too much AND of gratitude towards the person who sent me the package that arrived this week.
I'm beyond happy-see? I'm rambling here for lack of a better video editor-and more than excited to show you guys what books I ended up getting this week
So, here I go.

-La Ladrona de Libros by Markus Zusak -PB- Spanish edition
The Book Thief in english.
I already own this book in ebook format on my kindle for PC and it's in english lol. but I really wanted to buy it in spanish. First so I can read both editions and compare and see how well they did while traducing it AND I really want both, my mom and dad to read it. I've read only amazing and beautiful things about the book so I'm more than excited to own both copies.


Oh Nat! How do I even BEGIN to thank you.
This package was an unexpected one and such a perfect surprise I cried *-* you know I mean that literally. I don't know how you can keep sending me things with me not sending even a letter to thank you. I might be working on my thankyous' letters for some people. And you lady are one of those. Thank you so very much-hugs you-I really really REALLY want you to grasp in your head how HUGE this is for me. It means the world and don't ever forget THAT and how grateful I am. 
In my mail I got:
-Carrier Of The Mark by Leigh Fallon -PB-
-The Maze Runner by James Dashner -PB- UK Book #1
-The Scorch Trials by James Dashner -HB- Book #2
-The Death Cure by James Dashner -HB- Book #3
~Insert me screaming and running up and down my house-that doesn't even have a second story to run up to- OMG! NAT!!!! you got me none other than the book that made my BookPics facebook page spam a bit with my reviewing it without reading the last 19 pages.
THE UK EDITION! The one book I coveted the UK edition more than any other I've ever read...
-Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma -PB- UK
I got the incredible and really freak-out opportunity to interview Tabitha a while ago when I had just finished or almost-finished reading Forbidden. 
You can check my review HERE and my interview with Tabitha HERE.
She's such an amazing person and author and I thank her yet again for agreeing to make the interview. I really was so excited you have NO idea. The book made me cry since the very first page and up until...well...when there were 19 pages remaining to finish it. It's one of the best books I read in 2011. Please give it a chance!
Thank you so much Nat!
Now on to-

My Reading Pile #3

My reading pile is an idea created by Fiktshun in 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 you know I'm a devoted stalker, I mean, follower ;)

New on my reading pile this week:
-Hushed by Kelley York
THAT is the ONLY new book I managed to add to my reading pile this week. I got to read the teasers post over at Fiktshun and she always manages to make me want to read every single book she teases us about so I finally used the few $$ that I had left from a previous GC and bought this for my kindle for PC. It's so good so far. I really put down all my other reads just because I got so caught up with the story I couldn't manage to get into the other books I was reading.
I only got to read AND rererereread some parts of ONE book last week and that's 
A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford. 
I'm finally reviewing again and that book is the responsible one so I thank it, Leah, Rachel, and the anonymous person that traded the copy with her so it could finally get here *-* 
You can check my review of ATM2 HERE
I'm so behind on my reading is not even funny. I still have to finish my read of My Soul To Take for the Soul Screamers reading challenge-sign up post is on the left side-bar.- and I'm still reading The Demon's Lexicon along with Incarnate which comes out this tuesday! Incarnate is really good so far so I hope hope hope and hope some more that I can get it read, if not by tuesday at least this week so I can post my review up soon.

So my beautiful people. What did YOU get in your mailboxes and what are you planning to read this coming week?

-review- A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford

-She lost herself, for one last moment, in his eyes. And then 'she' stepped back.-

Thank you so much dear Rachel and Leah for bringing me back to the world of reviews T_T I haven't written even an excuse of a review for 3 weeks now. It's really showing.
So today, I'll leave you with my thoughts, or what's left of them, about the book.

Oh My Clouds in the heavens of the whole earth that we humans inhabit O_o
Where did my heart go?
Oh, yeah. Leah completely stole it with this second instalment of A Touch Mortal. 
After reading the mind blowing, incredibly new, and fresh first book I really didn't think that life could get any better than that.
And as it's always with me. It turned out I was completely and utterly WRONG.
A Touch Morbid was 100*100000 times + infinite more times better than ATM1.
-Takes her hat off- Leah! for this attempt to share with you and everyone else what you did to me with this book actually work I'll have to pretend that you are NOT from this world and that you've come from some other dimension where all books are perfect and the person who writes them is not evil but...let's just say -wicked- and that the person doesn't have a normal brain but one that can only come up with mind-blowing-death-sentence ideas with it and nothing else.

-This was about false promises of things he couldn't have.-

Let's just start with the kitten shall we? Because everyone loved to tease and torture me about the poor/lucky kitten whenever Leah had a chat. I do believe in kittens and...Boy, what would I give to be the kitten in this story...even if just for a while...to be able to be that close to G...HIM...it's got to be worth something.
There's someone dealing with TOUCH...out of all things to get um...some kind of profit from...that's got to be ugly!
Everyone thinks they're doing their best to help everyone else. Everyone thinks that is best to keep something from someone for their on well being and the rest. But this whole book was so wicked and so twisted and so good...I can only agree.
The lies that were told or the truths that weren't told in the book were all done or undone lol, with the best thoughts and interests in mind, not wanting to harm others but the contrary.

-"I want to see beautiful things with you."-

-Az and Eden, I envy. Every time, every way, every second, forever. Az comes back broken but still full of love for Eden.
-Eden is at her most strong point...and later at her most vulnerable and weak. Protecting those who don't want to be protected but knowing better...must stink.
-Gabe...~sighs~ Gabe is mine, end of discussion. He's struggling after the killer ending of ATM1. He's trying, he has/had/maybe/will/have some kind of kitten. He's hot. No. I mean it. Literally. HOT. And then, he's dark, he's darker, and at some point I think he went completely BLACK.
-Kristen, I think I've come to like Kristen more than I would like to. Simply because she spent almost every single of her scenes with evil incarnate AND made me jealous of it. How far off gone was I by then? I think I completely lost it. 
She played with ICE...and I don't think she was afraid to freeze...she was almost always cold in the book. Showing her soft-still-human side.

-"Do you know how easy it would be to break you?"
She looked numb. "I'm already broken. You fix me."-

-Luke. Taking a deep breath here. I cannot believe that Leah put books&Luke in the same sentence or paragraph inside this book. I mean it. If Luke buys books why shouldn't everyone? If he likes a certain kind of breakfast meal why shouldn't we all? I know I'm loving it/them now. He can be so deliciously manipulative while at the same time freeze someone from the inside-out without a seconds hesitation. After all, he learns from his mistakes.
-Jarrod. OMG! ~grabs Leah and hugs her fiercely~ There was so much more of Jarrod I thought and felt it was Christmas all over again! He's my forever hero. The only one that really tried to be the light in all the shadows that were this book. He IS afraid of things but unlike all the others he doesn't try to hide it but fights against it with all his might. And for that I LOVE HIM and I'm marrying him. End of rant.
-Madeline is an elusive little thing and she's completely scary in the most crazy way. I have really no words to describe her.
-Zach and Sebastian are 2 yummy things that if they continue like this...I shall also take them home with me and never return them.
-We have old characters coming back...maybe just one but who's counting? And new ones...that I have to say were the excellent spice to this plate of a heart attack-Don't think I've forgotten how I started out this review.-

-"My little black hole," he said, leaning his head nearer to her. 
"Pulling me in."-

The story was explosive in it's glory and mysterious in it's worst and I loved every single dot, letter, exclamation point, quotation mark, and EVERYTHING in it.
I couldn't have asked for a more perfect sequel.
Things aren't getting any better...they're getting worse by the minute. Every character has it's own story to tell and solve. Every corner is dripping secrets. Every song can drag you to hell. Every angel can be upon you. Every word can condemn you. Every kiss is a promise. Every promise is a lie. Every intent is good. Every good can rapidly turn into evil. Every breath can kill you. And. Every Touch can claim you. Death is lurking everywhere. Life is trying to run away. Love is trying it's best to prevail but so far it seems really hard and almost impossible to believe Love can hold on much longer.
A Touch Morbid is a heart-accelerating thing of a book. I don't recommend this book for those who suffer any kind of heart disease as I can assure you...this will be the death of you as it was of me.

-"I love you," he whispered.-

My body-heart-soul is begging for the third book.
And as Rachel told me. I don't know if reading this book early...has gifted me or has cursed me.
I'm ruined for all men because I just met the one I want in this book.
Do please please please yourself with this exquisite sequel.
And buy it when it comes out.
Your mind knows you want it...just let your body go along with it.

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 was capable of.

Once again I have to thank Rachel @Fiktshun for this wonderful gift. Thanks for killing me at a young age!
On a side note I thought I could share with you how I'm really not exaggerating when I say this book really...ruined me.
I present you...my ATM2 ARC...and the pencil I used to take notes...

yes... This really happened!

I'm sorry pencil T_T

BookPic of the Week #1

 Wow! I came up with this idea a long time ago and I've never had the time or the right picture to showcase what I called BookPic of the Week...yeah yeah, it says in the description of this post that is a picture that has to do a lot with books...but I'm changing it quite a bit. It won't only be a book cover, book quote, or the likes, but also a picture that I took anywhere that reminds me of a book, a certain book cover, or a book passage or quote.
So there you go, I hope I can have more time to take photos and even more time to find some place, patience and, creativity in me to make them even a little bit beautiful :D 
I'm no professional photographer nor do I know a thing about editing pictures haha I just love the fact that a single picture can say so much or so little without a single word, the look on people's faces when they look at said picture...it's the most amazing face they could ever make...as if they'd pay to be inside the picture! 
And well...I really love nature shots...it's what you'll find the most in my posts too...
So...here goes...everything :D

-...black and orange. Like a fire caught burning and turned to rock...

New on the BookPics TBR-List #8

This week's new books on my TBR-list are:

Pride's Run by Cat Kalen

Partials by Dan Wells
-Can I say COVER LOVE! I love love love this cover and I don't even know why I hadn't added it to my tbr-list before I saw it on My Reading Pile and boy was I shocked at my lack of new books added to the list! I love the girls hair, the clothes the sky, the road and, the font of the title!-

Blind Spot by Laura Ellen
-Another cover I really love and I kind of read the blurb and I'm intrigued, really. The girl's eye make-up and the place where the title was put I'm really looking forward to this book.-

The Goddess Hunt by Aimée Carter (Goddess Test #1.5)
-This is the first cover of these books where we can really take a front and clear view of the girl on all the covers. Can't wait to read this one AND Goddess Interrupted!-

Exiled by M.R. Merrick
-This book was added thanks to Fiktshun. She had it on her Reading Pile post last week. So, of course I had to add it too.-

Nine Uses for an Ex-Boyfriend by Sarra Manning 
-This one was a literally random add. I was stalking goodreads and Blackplume had it added to her tbr-list and the title drew me in first thing plus, I have to admit I'm partial to the pink arrows >.< -

Okay guys, I'll stop here before I spam the whole entry.
What is new on your tbr-list? 
Care to share?

-for some reason the cover won't appear on the goodreads PB edition page of the book so I'm linking you to the hardback page-

I screamed and didn't want to stop looking at the little email convo we had.
Not in a million years did I think of this happening!

Daisy's web page-> http://daisywhitney.com/

Again, this week was full of awesomeness as you can see above, any book added or received or bought, for me, that's just amazing and makes me more than happy :D
I'm still waiting on some, um, random packages...So I hope those come this week.

Bear with me.
I was talking with Mist from Bookaholics Book Club about how she did her IMM videos and added her reading pile created by Fiktshun for the week in it but as you can see in the video I couldn't make it on time before the food arrived-lol-so I'll post it written instead. 
This is something new I'm trying :D so wish me luck and  here I go->

My Reading Pile #1

My reading pile is an idea created by Fiktshun in 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 you know I'm a devoted stalker, I mean, follower ;)

I've never been good at organizing things. NEVER. EVER.
But since I'm participating in 2 reading challenges this year, one that has already started and the other one that starts today, Sunday, I figured...Why not try to be responsible for once.
Don't forget, if you haven't joined there's still time the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge stars today! Just go click on the left sidebar button ;)

So this week I'll be reading

My Soul To Take by Rachel Vincent
This is the first in the series and I'll be re-reading it for the 3rd time now, I think. I've never actually written a proper review for this or the rest of the books in the series so maybe I'll be able to write one out though, as you can see I haven't made a single post this last week. Hence the fact that if you click-older post- it goes straight to last week's IMM ~blush~ Forgive me!
I cannot wait, simply simply, cannot wait to lose myself once again in the Soul Screamers world where I can hang out with Tod, Nash, Kay, Emma...and a little reaper I love...so we'll see how it goes.

Next up is

The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
This book I found out about because of Rachel@Fiktshun, she absolutely LOVES this books and even though I only own the first one-my very first kindle purchase-I still haven't gotten around to read it. So, a couple of facebook friends are currently reading it and asked if there was anyone who would like to join. Of course I couldn't loose the opportunity and jumped at the chance. I just really hope to even read the half of it. And in the process don't let Rachel down...talk about impossibles.

I think that's it for my YA reads lol I'll be also reading an adult book, and I'm still debating whether this is a YA only blog or if I'll be adding non-YA reviews, reads, and covers here...time will tell.

So, that's it for me!
What did YOU get in your mail boxes? And,
What are you planning to read this week?
Until next week...

Joining the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge

I know, I know. You guys are all like, Alba, really? Reading those books yet AGAIN?
Well ladies, gentlemen, beautiful people, I'm here to tell you that the answer to that interrogative is a round, big, completely cute 
YES~with a lot of exclamation marks~ !!!!!!!!!!!

Rachel@Fiktshun is hosting her very first reading challenge this year. And what other better way to start than with the complete trauma of mine, Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series. There are exactly 5 whole books out with 3 novellas to go with them, and even an omnibus with the first novella and 2 first books.

The challenge will last only until the next installment of the series comes out which is set to be released on June this year.
You don't have to be a blogger to join the challenge, just some way to post a review(goodreads, facebook, etc.) It doesn't matter if you have already reviewed the books you can still join in the fun and maybe post about the rereading experience.

There are also some really swoon-drool worthy incentives that Rachel has come up with.
Yes people there are, exactly, ARE and not is, some giveaways.

So, if you're up for the challenge, and believe me you won't regret it if you're reading them for the first time, I have the button of the challenge on the left sidebar and also I'll leave it here on the end of this post.

Don't lose the chance to get to know how to spell correctly BANSHEE and to get to know a really really sexy REAPER and some really dark NIGHTMARES.

Challenge starts January 15 and ends June 14 you can enter whenever you want between those 2 dates.
Best of luck and really, just have fun. 
I know I will.

This is the second reading challenge I'm joining this year (it's all about trying new things this new year right?) The other one I've joined is The Sequels Challenge hosted by Bookaholics Book Club you can also find the challenge button on my left sidebar.

-review- Good For You by Tammara Webber

~"I mean, there's a difference between being suicidal and not giving a sh*t if you live or die. Right?"~

Tammara Webber, what can I say? How do I even begin to thank you?
I discovered this books thanks to Rachel@Fiktshun and well then I fell in love completely with the story, the characters, Graham, oh man...and finally after a long and well worthy wait REID is BACK.

This is the third and last book in the Between The Lines Trilogy by Tammara Webber. 

I literally don't know how to express my feelings for this book...I always loved Reid...no matter what he did...where did he go...what did he kiss...or who did he kiss... But in this book we get a completely different side of Reid and we are introduced to a new and fresh and if you ask me completely lovable, real, and amazing character; Dori.

~ Her shorts are so far out of style that I'm not sure they were ever in style. ~

My Poor Feelings/thoughts/and the likes
Because I was literally left waiting, wanting, begging for more I'm going to put it like this, short, simple, and...never mind I'll just do it.
You are who...people see? what you want to be? what you'd like to be? or what you really are?
You love...what you want to love? what you'd like to love? or what you really love?
You live...how you want to live? how other people tell you to live? or you don't really live at all but just try to pass the time every single day?
You believe, you cry, you try, you ask, you forgive, you forget, you love, you work, you make mistakes, you hold your breath, you listen, you want to be listened, you want to be loved, you want to be accepted, you expect... Reid and Doris' lives are described simply in those lines above.
He's a complete famous actor, she's a dedicated girl with her life already planned out.
When both their paths cross...BIG BANG happens... he wants to be more than just a sexy body and pretty face to her and she, well, she just want to be left alone to her own thoughts and doesn't trust people just like Reid.

This book was what I expected and so much more. Webber knew exactly when to make things happen and left me wanting more sooo bad it's really not even funny.
Full of hot, cute, sexy, work, paint, hammers, fans, cars, families, dancing, truth, lies, trust, and more than 3rd chances... A book that will completely change your mind if only a little, about holywood stars, about believing in yourself, and about the importance of others believing in yourself, about trusting, about letting yourself love someone and be loved, about helping and being helped.
I have to confess...that ending...it left me with sooo many questions going unanswered, so many untied endings, and a very very...squeezed-tight heart to deal with afterwards.
Please don't let the chance of reading this amazing books pass up. I promise it won't disappoint!

And finally a million + infinite thanks to ~clears throat~ Tammara Webber, author and amazing person who gifted me the book...I was in tears and astonished T_T and Rachel-Fiktshun- she sent another copy when I was already reading it, the fact that you thought about me was enough to make me cry all over again. Thank you BOTH one for writing the amazing story and the other one for introducing me.
