Bookography #3


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!


This is my picture for this week:
-...the world, the city, and all its lights and life seemed to have narrowed down to this, just her and Jace, the burning heart of a frozen world.-
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare 


I think the quote says everything. I took this picture last year while the lights had gone out at my house due to a storm, couldn't be any happier with the shot. I slightly edited it, it was all in the contrast and the mate frame which I changed to orange.

IMM#17 & MRP #5

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

This week I only got one thing in the mail and it was NOT a book but it's still book-related so I obviously had to share it.

~giggles~
Isn't it cute >.< it was a surprise to receive it. I knew it had been made but didn't know it had been sent. Hence me getting all teary over it.
Thank you SO VERY MUCH Autum! I completely love it. It's the very first ANYTHING that has the name of my blog on it. You have outdone yourself. I'm too happy for words so I'll just say thank you!

I haven't gotten ANY book since the last week of January...but I've been told there's a package waiting for me at my grams so I'm going to feature that one next week as I haven't been able to pick it up.
Now on to...

My Reading Pile #5

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 ;)

MRP progress & status:
Wow you guys! I cannot believe I read like 4 books this week though, I'm really behind with my reviews... but yeap, it reminded me of old times when I devoured like 5 books a week! 
I even managed to start reading the next book of The Blackdagger Brotherhood and that wasn't even on MRP!
I'm ONE book behind from last week's reading pile and that's The Mockingbirds. I decided to put that one on hold because I've got so caught up with BDB that I didn't want to be reading 2 completely different genres at the same time.
Don't get the wrong idea though...I've read 111 pages from The Mockingbirds and LOOOOOVED each and every single one of those. I'll just have to read it some other time in March.
But enough of that.
This is what I'm-hopefully-going to be reading this week;

Lover Revealed by J.R. Ward -BDB #4-
I am LOVING each and every single page of every single book that I've read of the series so far!

Lover Unbound by J.R. Ward -BDB #5-

My Soul To Save by Rachel Vincent
I'm finally going to start my reread of the second book for the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge
-remember you still can join in all the fun! Just go to the left sidebar and click on the SSRC button-
This book-sigh-was, is and, will forever be when EVERYTHING changes and I have no one to thank but the author who did a little post about it last year. This second book was my least favorite but after reading that post I actually ended up agreeing with her; that this book plays a really important roll for what happens after in the series and is the beginning  of what officially ends in book 5, If I Die. Hope I made sense.
So I'm excited and hope to start it by the middle of this week.

Netgalley Pile Adds:
Oooh! I almost forgot! I got approved for a galley of Spellcaster by Cara Lynn Shultz over at Netgalley.
I got all giddy and started screaming and crying because it reminded me  of my baby blog days, when I first requested galleys from there. Spellbound was one of the first books I got approved to read early thanks solely on me posting my reviews on my Facebook BookPics page and my Tumblr & Goodreads T_T .Even though I still haven't been able to get a finished copy of Spellbound-again blaming my country-being approved for the sequel is more than I could have ever hoped for.
That's it for me!

My Reading Pile #4

Hi guys! And welcome to:

My Reading Pile #4

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 ;)

Since I haven't been getting anything in the mail the last 3 weeks I've been slaking and not making MRP posts but that's over now hehehe. Check out what I'll be reading this week, hopefully.

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
-I am beyond HAPPY to be reading this book, I've been stalking the author non-stop since such a long time ago it feels like forever! YES I've stalked her WITHOUT reading her book but I seriously couldn't help myself she's so much fun and happy and good! After all, she was the person from whom I won a SIGNED copy of Where She Went by Gayle Forman. 
Daisy has known for a long time now how difficult it is for me to get books and one day of January while she was giving away an ARC for the sequel -The Rivals- she surprised me and told me she was sending me one 'signed' copy of the newly released PB copy of The Mockingbirds...suffice it to say I died and went to heaven. So thank you so very much to Daisy for this awesome gift!-

Another book on my pile this week is
Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward ~BDB #2~
Already started it >.<
I'm loving the BDB books so far ^_^ can't believe it took me so long to finally start it. I just really wish I had all of them in the same format...as it is...I have some on eBook and some on printed ^_^ But WOW this books are *_*...-speechless- 

Followed by
Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward ~BDB #3~

That's it for me this week guys. I'm waiting a week more to start the second book on the Soul Screamers reading challenge which is My Soul To Save~there's still time to sign up <- click on the left side-bar to enter and sign up~

What are YOU guys reading this week?

-reread thoughts- My Soul To Take by Rachel Vincent



This is the very first time for me doing a kind of review for a reread of a book.

When I found out that Fiktshun was having a reading challenge for none other than the Soul Screamers series I just HAD to sign up. I've never participated on a reading challenge before but THIS right here was one of the 2 perfect opportunities that presented themselves to me this year.


(You can still sign up for the challenge by clicking on the left sidebar button.)




~Sighs~
Where to begin? Hehe don't worry this won't be a long rant.
This is, I think, my 7nth time rereading this books...ever since I found them randomly on YA-books list on Scribd I knew I had to have them. The books mean a lot to me since I read them before I became a reviewer ^_^ and I still hold them close to my heart.


Rereading this yet again helped me remember why I fell in love with the story and it's characters in the first place. 
Why I always have and always will be a huge admirer of the heroine that is Kaylee. This is a book full of all things awesome. From bad guys OR girls, high school crushes, family trouble, annoying cousins, absentee parents, lies, vanity and, the supernatural. Reapers, bean-sidhes, reapers, hellions, and more more creepy-looking creatures. I mean, seriously? It's packed.
It was so much fun remembering why I love Tod so much, why I fell in love with Nash in the first place, why I can't help but dread the ending of each book knowing what comes next. It was an amazing reread.
It's so easy to get immediately submerged in the story! 

I have nothing more to say than, it's a perfect book filled with perfect characters and written so wonderfully I really am fighting the urge to reread it once again before starting the next book in the series.
Rachel Vincent proves to me once again why she's one of my favorite authors and why this is one of my 2 favorite books from the series-so far.- 
Because this was the start of Kaylee's amazing-sacrificing-troublesome yet growing-loving-rediscovering journey!
I cannot wait to sink my eyes in the next book!

Hello sexy!
Of course I HAD to post a picture about one of my favorite series EVER to exist!
This picture is also an old one...
I took it while doing one of my rereads of the Soul Screamers books.
I just randomly took it and then made a few tiny editions with the color contrast >.< That's it!

Bookography #1

Hey, again. I'm trying something new this week...you know, new year new things and stuff like that.
Well I present you -Bookography-. 


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 ;)

So now I present you my recently re-discovered picture.


I've loved this book for so long now. But mostly. I love love and love this exact excerpt.
I was completely overwhelmed with this urge to write it down and paint it all kinds of colors trying to make a touchable memory of the things this passage made me feel, still makes, whenever I read it.
Maggie's writing plus that poem made them the perfect scene of the book for me.
This picture, I took a while ago. But I still love it simply because it's all me...from the picture to the paper to the writing I wanted all to be me sharing the love of the book and saving it forever in my mind and heart and most recently-with he picture-in my room.^-^
