It's wednesday!
Which means you're either overly excited because the week is halfway through... or you're completely depressed because you feel like the weekend is never going to come.

Either way I hope you're reading something and this wednesday what's currently keeping me up at night is,

Legend by Marie Lu
This is my second attempt to read this book. The first time I had to put it down without even finishing the first page because I had to read one book for review and I never went back to it again. Today I plan to start it and FINISH it since I just read the description and it sounds like a story I would enjoy.
Let's hope for the best!
What are you guys reading this Wednesday?

My Thoughts
(Recommend this book for readers 17+)
This was my first 2014 read and while it didn't exactly blew my socks off it definitely left an impression.

Being a big girl myself I gotta say it's normal for me NOT to find big-sized girls in the books I enjoy reading but now and then I find the rare book that features a girl like that and in this case the girl is the main character and the whole story/book revolves around her and her size/weight.

I'm being honest here when I say I really liked the author's writing BUT didn't like that main character's voice that much.

Picture Perfect is about not only love but the struggles a l…

First up,

Unteachable by Leah Raeder


This is a really good and great New Adult, ever since I read Easy by Tammara Webber I was doomed to love all things NA and when I saw a sale for this one and all the mixed reviews it had gotten I instantly pinned for it. Cue my BookAngel Elena buying it for me.

But even though it had been sitting on my kindle for a month I finally decided to pick it up at the beginning of the year.

Wow doesn't even begin to cover all the feels and gasps this book has inspired in me.

I'm thoroughly enjoying it and since I'm almost done I have zero clue as to what the ending might be, yes, I'm loving it THAT much.

-BookPics Is Curious- What's Happened To Me, To Us?

Wow, I suck.

I haven't been posting as I would like to, I haven't been reviewing. AT ALL. I haven't been looking for galleys as I used to, I haven't been entering book giveaways, I haven't been visiting my favorite book blogs.

I, simply put, haven't done anything on the blogosphere lately, better said, since last August.
Sure I've been posting here and there but seriously, it wasn't something I completely put myself into, the only book review I last remember really wanting to write was the one for Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi because it completely blew my heart away.

I was amazing and up until now I really need to find that place again, the one in which I couldn't stop stalking my favorite bloggers, the time I stalked my favorite authors whether they paid me attention or not, the time when book bloggers formed this community and everyone was nice with everyone and all the drama and ugly didn't happen.

I want all that back, I want to blog again, sh…
