A new year, a new addition. Two bloggers came together to create a hopefully NOT hot mess of a blog. From the books we read, to the movies we watch, and everything in between; it all gets regurgitated here for our readers to become hypnotically entranced.
Ok I'm getting rid of my GFC, which makes me sad because it made blogging life a little easier. So to help you guys stay up to date on what happens here I'm going to start using my twitter more and I also created a google+ page. So feel free to follower one or both!
I'm still slacking in the blogging world. While I was going through some of the blogs that I follow, I noticed this new little blog thing about connected music with our blogs. This makes me really happy because I love music as much as I love music. I always love getting introduced to new music and also sharing my favorites. A huge thanks to GReads! for coming up with this new idea!
My first song I'm going to introduce is called:
Song: Mr. Right
Artist: A Rocket to the Moon
I stumbled across this a couple of weeks ago and just fell in love with this band. This song kind of goes along with my life right now, but since this weeks theme is suppose to be relating a book with music,I can't really think of any song and book right now so I'm just going to show you some songs that relate to me and that I adore.
Song: Like We Use To
Artist: A Rocket to the Moon
This song also goes along with me life.
I hope you guys enjoy my music!
Hey guys! I know, I know....It's been forever! I apologize for that. My school, job, and life have been keeping me extremely busy these past couple of months. I'm still quite busy, but I'm actually getting the chance to read a little so I wanted to try and blog some also. I've missed the blogging world, especially the bloggers and readers!
I had good time over the holidays and I hope all of you did as well. I'm an aunt of twins now! My sis-in-law had a boy and a girl. The boys name is Grayson Mitchell and the girl's is Lillianna Marie. They are about 2 months now I think. I don't get to see them very often since I live 4 hours away from them, I'm not really a big babies fan. Hah weird since I'm a chick. =P
I didn't get to read too much over my time away. I did finish a couple of books. I'm not going to give big reviews about them, but I'm going to give you my opinion on whether I liked them or not. Perfect Chemistry was the last book I posted about on here. Hmmm... let's see the next book I read was Need. I got that on my Nook Color because it's cheaper than buying the actual book. On the nook its priced at $3.59, you can click here if you would like to check it out!
--- It was much better than I thought it would be. I rated it a 4 out of 5. It had a few slow parts, but they didn't last long. I hope to read the next one soon!
The next book was Silence. The third book in the Hush, Hush series.
--- It was really good, but no where near as good as the first and second. I feel like Patch has turned too sensitive. He doesn't seem like the Patch that I feel in love with in the first book. I was kind of disappointed after I read it. I really hope the next one is better than the last. Don't get me wrong it was still pretty good. I rated it a 4 out of 5.
I also read Ripple.
--- Ripple was good. It had a few twist that I was not expecting. The whole book was a twist compared to the books that I read lately.
--- So far Hex Hall series has not disappointed me yet! Demonglass was AMAZING! I rated it a 5 out of 5, but it was even better than a five! I can't wait for spellbound! It's coming out next week! YAY!
--- This was an okay book. It wasn't awesome, but it wasn't bad either. It was a nice little twist to the Beauty and the Beast that I grew up to. I gave it a 3 our of 5
Flawless (Pretty Little Liars Series #2)
--- This one started off a little slow, but it picked up in the middle. I liked some of the characters romance in this book. I'm not going to be specific because I don't want to spoil anything. It was a good little read. I gave it a 3 out of 5.
That's all I've read these past couple of months. At the moment I'm reading the third Pretty Little Liars. I hope to get to make another blog post soon! Love you guys! Happy Readings to All!!!
This is my second time doing this. I had a lot of fun visiting new blogs last time. Unfortunately I don't get the chance to do it every Friday. FF is hosted by parajunkee and alison can read. The two featured blogs this week are hands and home and me my shelf and i. Make sure to check those blogs out!
Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).
A:- Hmm my book would have to be Twilight. It really changed my reading habits. Before I read Twilight, my parents would have to force me to read. I hated reading. I didn't see the point in it, when you have a tv. But once I read Twilight, it opened up a whole new reading world. While I read it, it was like a movie going through my head. Ever since I read it, I've been fond of books. I even carry a book in my purse, where ever I go, just hoping to get a chance to at least read a page or two.
What book changed you??
If youfollow me I'll follow you back.
Update on what I'm reading: I'm still reading the 2nd Pretty Little Liars. I'm almost finished with it though.
Please do me a favor and vote in my poll. I'm stuck on what I should read next. Thanks!
At Fairfield High School, on the outskirts of Chicago, everyone knows that south siders and north siders aren't exactly compatible elements. So when head cheerleader Brittany Ellis and gang member Alex Fuentes are forced to be lab partners in chemistry class, the results are bound to be explosive. But neither teen is prepared for the most surprising chemical reaction of all-love. Can they break through the stereotypes and misconceptions that threaten to keep them apart?
....So WOW! This book was amazing! I heard so many good reviews about it, I was afraid it wouldn't hold up the expectations of them. But WOW it did. The way the author wrote this book, was so good that you could actually feel the emotions the characters were feeling. It felt like you were the characters. The fiery passion between Brittany and Alex was spectacular. It was so hot and steamy.
My favorite part in the story in on page 150. I'm only going to give a little teaser.
......I'm totally game to making out with her.
As my brain goes through every scenario, she steps closer.
And snatches my keys out of my hand.
"What you think you're doin'?" I ask her.
"Getting you back for kidnapping me." She steps back and with all her might whips my keys into the woods.
"You did not just do that."
One part that kind of bugged me about the book was when Alex got down on his knees and Brittany says Oh. My. God. I know its not a big deal or anything. I just felt like that wasn't something the true Brittany would, only the Brittany she used as a "perfect" front. I just really loved this book. I can't even express in words how much.
I'm so ready to read Rules of Attraction next. I watched the book trailer on Simone Elkeles website. It looked really great. Makes me anticipate the book even more! If you would like to see the trailer, click HERE.
I'm still reading Pretty Little Liars #2. Hoping to get done with that soon.
What was the weather like this week? Dreadfully HOT!
News and Event with Families and Friends: Well my aunt has calmed down on her drinking. Not as much as I would like, but at least she is getting better. Oh and I had one of my long lost friends text me this week asking to hang out, but she still never told me when though. Maybe she will soon. My brother and his wife are going to be on vacation this next week. That's about all the news. Hah my life is pretty boring.
I am excited about: About the same as last week. I'm hoping they continue to post new pictures of my dorm this next week! They have only posted a picture of the 1st floor kitchen. So I'm still anxiously waiting for them to at least post a week of my floor.
I am concerned about: I'm concerned that when I do start my classes I won't be able to keep reading as much as I would like.
1. Chapter Four
- Avenged Sevenfold
3. Y'all Want a Single
4. Touch, Peel, and Stand

8. I Don't Want to Wait

Contests: I won a contest on YA Bliss. I won a copy of Divergent from Owl for YA. So I would say this week was a success.
Started/Finished I haven't finished any books this week unfortunately. But I did start Perfect Chemistry. Every moment I have I'm reading this book. So far this book has been amazing! I heard so many good reviews about it so I had to get a copy. Now I'm stuck in this book. I haven't even picked up Pretty Little Liars since I bought this book. I will review it as soon as I'm finished.
Goals/Ideas for a better tomorrow: My goal for next week is to finish at least two books I've started lately.
Wow this was one of the best hops/giveaways that I've done. Thanks guys for following me. I love when people follow me on their own without me requesting it! I feel loved. HAHa I really appreciate all the love guys. I won't disappoint you. I should be having another giveaway soon.
Also I started reading Pretty Little Liars #2: Flawless the other day. I'm about a 4th way through it. I'll probably be reading some tonight. I've been getting my junk ready for the move-out-of-my-house and move-in-my-new-college-dorm. Busy, busy, busy. I have so many books that I want to take, but I know they all want fit in my car.
Oh my! I just got a great new contest idea!!! When I figure out all the details about it, I'll post it ASAP! I think y'all will enter it!
I hope everyone had fun hopping through all of the blog. Hope you guys won lots of awesome books.
