I'm so excited to show you guys the Cover Reveal for Jennifer L. Armentrout's WICKED! 

WICKED is a New Adult Paranormal Romance, new book coming from the one and only Jennifer L. Armentrout’s first book on the Wicked Trilogy. Which is being released on December 8th, 2014. So make sure you pre-order it today!! I already did!!!!


Pre Order link: Amazon

WICKED Synopsis: Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans. Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart. Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her. But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

REVIEW: Maybe Someday - Colleen Hoover


A love story that involves music, composition, guitar, and the issue of communication through voice and ear... Well there's just too many beautiful elements combined in just one story. But when you put there beautiful-ness too and heartache, it's just perfection. Or at least it was tome. Not to mention that this books has a really great playlist that you can find here: Maybe Someday Soundtrack. I think that was pretty awesome, to actually being able to put music to the lyrics shown in the book, and experience the fiction of the story not only through written words but also through actual music that's a plus I wasn't counting on and I absolutely loved. I've have this book for months now, as an ebook as always, and I don't know why I never picked it up, even though I really wanted to read it.
I know why now. Because it was too close to heart. Ok, so I haven't fallen for a talented deaf musician genius, with a loyal and beautiful heart who had a girlfriend. But I did fall for a friend with a girlfriend from another country, he never promised anything and we did everything we could to not let anything more to developed between us, I just wasn't strong enough, he wasn't strong enough, since this is not personal book all I can say here is that we ended hurting more than we should, and I let it happen, and in the end, the guilt, the blame, the loss of self-respect, probably wasn't worth it in terms of getting back, of reciprocation, 'cause I did gave everything of me, and I mean EVERYTHING.
When he finally broke up with her, it wasn't for choosing me, it was because she was leaving for good. So when we tried, it didn't worked, I couldn't deal with the doubt, the guilt, the insecurity that I was the second choice, 'cause unlike Sydney, our leading female on the book, I was the second choice and the guy never reassured me of any different, because it wasn't any different from where my thoughts were. I can't even put into words all the pain I went through for all the choices made, and there's no number for all the tears shed. And in the end, that pain changed part of me, that today I really miss, it made me insecure, self conscious and depressive. That was less than 4 years ago, I still see him sometimes, in fact I saw him yesterday, just a few hours before starting the book. I still can't say no to him. There's still some part of me that believes if he comes back for me for good I would take him. I hate myself for that, for how weak he makes me feel, but specially because I'm the one who lets him.

Wow...  wasn't planning on putting all this here, but while reading, I couldn't help but thinking how I wish this is how my own story would have ended, but instead my heart broke and I was the only one to blame. Reading this was painful for me, but it was such a beautiful story. I just wish mine would have even just a little bit alike... Well reality is never like you want and we can't always get what we want. But then again, that's the most amazing thing about books. :)

REVIEW: Perfectly Damaged - E.L. Montes

***** 5 STARS

“The sadness will last forever” Vincent Van Gogh
“How can you fix me when I can’t even fix myself?”
“Live for today, push for tomorrow”

What a book. I’m just wiping my nose and drying my face from all the tears, my head hurts from all the sobbing, and my heart swells with emotion. The good and the not so good.

This books talks about mental disease, schizophrenia and depression to be exact. The first one is really hard to get and I can’t even begin to comprehend what it means to have to live with it. And my heart, thoughts, good vibes and the little strength I have, goes to those who suffer from this condition. However, I do know about depression, I’d live on and off with it for the last, give or take, 7 years of my life, not in big levels, but this past few years it’s been harder with all the grown up stuff that we have to deal with. Anyway, this book, touch me deeply and like very few. In no way I’ve had it as bad as Jenna, the leading female of this book, but still somehow I could relate in some levels.

In no way is a light book, it wasn’t for me, I started crying in page 11 I think, but don’t distress, I laugh and smile and even feel some butterflies throughout the book as well. But if I’m being honest, some of the scenes were really hard to read, they were harsh, but unfortunately they were real.

It reflects with such reality, still having in consideration that is a work of fiction, the struggle of people who suffers from mental illness or conditions. In both ways, internally and socially, it goes through the relationships between a patient and its family, friends and lovers and it makes you realize how hard we are with those who we think aren’t normal only because we think or see them as different from us and from what is the socially accepted as normal. But it’s also a book that shows that however we are, there’s always a light to reach, there’s always the possibility of getting better still having at account that life is not perfect and that some days are much better than others. It shows that we can still found love however we are, on family, friends, and even in hot boys, or just good (for us) boys for that matter. But that all of this is especially true if we first learn to accept ourselves the way we are and to love ourselves with the good, the bad and the gray. Nothing is truly fine until we realize that, and especially when we agree to ourselves more than to anyone that with our wills and some help (medicine, psychotherapy, art, friends, family, meditation, sports, etc.), that we can be better and live step by step, day by day.

REVIEW: The Sweet Trilogy - Wendy Higgins

*** 3.5 STARS

I've been meaning to read this series a long time ago, but something was holding me back from doing it, but seeing it mentioned on Opposition and the deal was sealed. 

The first book on this series is Sweet Evil, and it shows an innocent teenage girl with special abilities, a cute male best friend, meeting a steamy hot dark guy, a drummer non the less (YUMMY!) the story was about nephilim and demons, and my first thoughts were: "Is this going to be a Shadowhunter thing? The Mortal Instruments anyone?" But it was not so close to that. The first book was compelling, exciting, and entertaining, but also very annoying in terms that is a book with a lot of display in morals, and religious rules, the talk about heaven and hell in a very catholic way. I, being an atheist, thought it was too much, understanding life is not at all about right or wrong on divine terms, but for me it's more like live your life to the fullist but just don't hurt anyone else or yourself while doing it, instead of following moral rules that are set on a book. If I put all that behind me, the book was really good, the female lead, while not being my favourite person in the world, was really cute, but her innocence was really too much for a teenage girl living on the US. The boy however, dayum!!! Kaidan Rowe is a panty dropper and it had me on his display of a british accent!

The second book, Sweet Peril, was equally entertaining, and we see the female leading character still with innocence but with the knowledge of the reality of life, however, it really annoyed me the masochism toward chasing a boy who repetitively rejected her, even when he was trying to protect them both by keeping her away, my feminism was screaming at the pages to Anna stop being so damn stupid, to have a little pride, to get a grip. I knew the boy loved her, but no woman or girl should let man or boy or other woman to treat her like Kaidan did, the rejection stung too much, she needed to step away so he could have seen what he was missing, or just fucking move on. Well everything work well in the end, but those moments were just too much for me.

The final book called Sweet Reckoning was good too, but it happened awfully fast, some scenes were surely beautiful, specially the ones involving love, but when the crucial moment came, somehow everything seemed too forced, too rushed, like it was missing something, the big thing, something more magnificent that didn't came, it was all too fast lacking a natural way of progress in the story. The ending was good, it had a happy ending, sure, there was loss, grief, dreams, love, new beginnings and sweetness. But there was that lack of naturality...
However, the epilogue, undid me, so full of feelings, of reality of the true things that happens in our world, specially in those called third world countries, but that little girl in the end and the sheddings of tears of the male leading, it was just beautiful...

Still the main battle was missing something, unfortunately no matter how big our faith or will is, nothing is solve from just a prayer.

REVIEW: Opposition (Lux Series - Jennifer L. Armentrout)

***** 5 STARS

So, it's over. The awesome alien YA series of this awesome author has come to the end with last week's release of Opposition. The story about Katy Swartz and her alieneighbours reach its climax in this last book giving a lots of sensations to us...

I got the book on my Kindle the exact second the book was released, since I was reading another book then, I decided to wait to finish it and then start reading the book, but to make the experience much more better, I thought it was a perfect moment to re read the entire series so I could start Opposition with everything fresh in my mind to meet the conclusion of this exhilarating book series. 

I really am lost at words in what to say about this book. I don't have any notes, any buts, any points or critics that may be object, I think I'm just in love with everything Armentrout writes, weather is as Armentrout or as her pseudonym J. Lynn for adult books. She never cease to amaze me, she never fails to envelop me in her worlds, I've reading all of her released books except for Obsession (the arum counterpart to the luxen series) and that will change soon, since I already got Obsession and gonna start reading as soon as I have this paper done for work! (Which is killing me btw, 'cause all I want to do is read!). 

So all I really have to do is to describe what my emotions were while I was reading, first of all, Daemon Black is kind of like a contemporary Mr. Darcy for me, that's how perfect (with all his imperfections) he is. I'd be hypocrite to say that I'd never dream with a certain type of guy as a boyfriend (for not saying a prince charming 'cause duh, that's so unrealand Daemon, just as Mr. Darcy and a few other fictional characters meets those expectations so perfectly, I mean who wouldn't dream with a guy who is hot as hell, and loves you like you're his entire and only world?. Yes I'm very aware that he was such a douche in the beginning, but come on, it was all because he was trying to protect his family, doing what he thought it was right. Lame excuse if I actually start thinking as a sociologist and all the gender theories in my mind, but screw it I just fucking love the guy no matter all the symbolic violence he exerted toward Katy, and sure I hated him in the beginning just for that, but I can't deny that everytime Kat and Daemon had a scene together, there were butterflies in my tummy, and I must confess with a lot of shame to make it public, that I even got a little horny with all that sexual tension that only Jennifer can put into books like so few others! 
All that being said, Daemon didn't disappoint on this last book, he kept being the hot dark guy full of light and love for his people, his Kat and his family and friends. He kept making me feel butterflies and wishing I had a boy like that, or just any boy to be honest. 

Kat didn't disappoint either, Kat is the girl next door that turns into a complete badass over time, she grows in terms of strength and personality like only few characters does, she makes me remember Mac from the Fever series, with a lot of more realistic touches, well except for the alien mutation thingy, and fuck when she crashed at her house when she found out the lost of .... I crashed with her, I sobbed with her, and even when she put on her big girl pants and took some kind of control on her emotions and all that strength, I was still sobbing 'cause she's my hero, and I'm 25 and want to be a bad ass just like her! (I'm lame and my aspirations comes in the form of fiction, ok?)

So in the end, this book make me smile, cry, curse, swoon and cry some more, and I think that's what makes art a perfection, either is a book, a movie, a T. V show, a song, or a painting, there's nothing more perfect than a piece of art, of creation that makes you feel, specially when it makes you feel so many things at once, and seriously, I cried a lot,  but in the end all I could was smile, smile and think "What did Daemon wrote to Kat on that note? I need to know!!!!!!!!

Praise for Jennifer L. Armentrout and her writing :)

REVIEW: Daughter of Smoke and Bone series (Laini Taylor)

***** 5 STARS

Daughter of Smoke and Bone series is a trilogy of books written by Laini Taylor. I didn’t take the time to make a proper review of the three previous books, but here’s an overall review of the series.

I must admit, that I begun reading this book on February, summer on this part of the world, and on a beach house full of family, friends and well summer on a beach, I got distracted and decide I wasn’t paying enough attention to the book, so I stopped, which is not usual for me, once I start something I don’t let it unfinished. Anyway, Last week I decided to began reading it again… at first I thought it was slow, I didn’t get much excitement on the first chapters, but then it all start becoming interesting when I started to see the shape of a story, a plot. And I started liking it, liking the writing, the multiple resources applied in it, the flashbacks, the discursive, the argument, and more importantly the story itself, so intriguing, so full of mystery, and with so many things to tell. So I started immediately the second book, Days of Blood and Starlight, and oh the feels, so many feelings entangled while I read, I hated The Wolf, with all my guts, I hated that the lead female character was so full of blindness toward the truth, but I loved seeing her struggling, doubting, and the male leading character, Akiva I loved him, I loved how he loved, how he hoped for the best, for their dreams to come true.

The last book, Dreams of Gods and Monsters, was incredibly long, but exactly how I like a book ending, with no lose ends, with friendship, with true, with love, with new beginnings and beautiful endings. I think this story, was a story of light and darkness, of equilibrium between them and above all, of happiness found in the least of the imaginable places. To me, it talkED about building a future, it told me to hope that there’s always one for us if we can only wish for it, for the real wishes are made of hope and will, so I guess it taught me to have that on this times where I much need those things for my life. It was not a simple or meaningless book, not just a teenage book either, very far from it, it was a book of enlightment, of knowledge, of feelings.

It just was such a lovely story, lovely not just for saying something nice about it, but because I personally found it full of love, all kinds of love, and all of this love, filled my heart with HOPE.

REVIEW: Silver Shadows (Richelle Mead)

 ****  4 STARS

Why did it have to end like that? I mean sure, I love cliffhangers and all that excitement, but I hate when you have to wait so long to know what's going to happen!!! 

...And I loved the book, I admit I started reading it as slow as possible, trying to delay the ending of it and keeping the pleasure of reading it for as much time as possible, however the book was just too good to keep delaying it longer and today I ended reading most of it and finishing it.  So here are my initial thoughts at just minutes after finishing it. 

(light) SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!

I have some notes on the encounter between Adrian and Sydney, it didn't felt so big or meaningful as I would hope it would, I was hoping for a big scene, almost expecting fireworks and hugs and hungry and painful kisses that would've been the reflection of all those months away from each other... but all that was compensated in the scenes that came after, and I love the love and protection they feel toward each other, I would've hope for more struggling with Sydney to talk about all the torture she suffered, maybe see some post-traumatic effects, not just one nightmare, maybe the fact that there wasn't it means she really is that strong, that badass, but  I don't find it sincere that a love like that don't struggle with that kind of things, that there's no talk about what was done and felt in those months apart, or maybe their love is just that big, that doesn't need doubts, explanation, struggling, where there has been enough struggling already, but it maybe does't seem real, but then again we didn't saw much time pass between them after they met again and hopefully we'll see more of that on the next book. Well, definitely I just wish we got more scenes with just the two of them. 

At some point, probably the first chapter or the first half of the book, I found the writing style of Adrian's POV a little weird and maybe even a bit strange, after the second half of the book I forgot and mostly concentrated on the story and the events that were happening. What was also new to me, wast that I read with much more eagerness the chapters on Sideny's POV, probably due to the the same reason of the writing, since it wasn't like that for me on the previous books. This, however, in no way make me like or dislike Adrian's character or story through the book. Adrian is probably one of my favourite male characters on literature and always be at the side of Mr. Darcy, Will Herondale, Damon Salvatore, Daemon Black, Jericho Barrons and others, he's the reason I like this series after all. <3

Needles to say, I'm really excited for the next book and how it all will be resolve on the moroi/dhampir world, specially because I have the feeling we'll be seeing a bit more of Rose and Dimitri in order to rescue Jill and put things on a clear path to ending the story, or maybe is just what I'm hoping for. Although I'm not excited 'bout the fact that it'll be the last book, that I know of, about this compelling and adventurous world.

I've only finish the book a few minutes ago, so more to come soon... Enjoy!

Hello guys!

Welcome to my new blog. Here I pretend to write 'bout all the books I'm reading or that I've read before. I intent to express my feelings toward those books. Books are my life in this moment, my reason to get through every day and the best way I have to deal with issues and real life, which is pretty hard sometimes. So behold my utterly poor blog but a blog made with sincerely love, love for letters, for fantasy, fiction, action, romance, eroticism, and hopefully some awesome kick ass female heroine ;)
