Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4) by Richelle Mead  3.5 stars. I read heaps of reviews before I started reading the book, and I gathered that the first 300 pages was boring af. But I actually adored it!! I didn’t expect to, but RM has written a great world with Dimitri’s family. I didn’t care at all about Abe, and Sydney was interesting enough. Here’s my issue with the book: I ship Adrian… Read More

Wishlist Wednesday @ Pen to Paper. A book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added, that we can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves. Good morning/evening, readers!Today’s book meme is one we can all relate to. I simply adore JLA (one of my all-time fave authors, who wrote the Lux series), and as I’ve… Read More

Tell Me Something Tuesday @ Rainy Day Ramblings. Post about the weekly question on your blog and link up (topics are up 1 week in advance). What are some of the worst book to movie adaptations you have seen? 1: Allegiant I’m a huge fan of this series, it was one of the major YA reads that hooked me into reading a few years ago.  I felt the same way after seeing the movie,… Read More

“Bookmark Monday @ Guiltless Reading. If you have a bookmark to share leave a comment on the Monday post.”– GirlXOXO To be honest, as long as it isn’t dog earring; I basically use anything as a bookmark. But if I’m not using an old receipt or ticket, and being a good bookworm, I’ll most likely be seen using my 1000’s of copies of these:  Uncoloured, of course.  Do you use bookmarks, if so; what do… Read More

Weekend Cooking @ Beth Fish Reads. Open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. I’m writing this in advanced, but I’m supposed to be in NYC right now, for 6 weeks. Feeding myself without my mamma doing for me is daunting, but hopefully we can do it. I’ll probably just get some frozen lasagnes and prepare… Read More

Book Beginnings @ Rose City Reader. Share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. This is from Almost to Die For #1:  From this first line, it kinda sounds a bit immature and try-hard to get with the teens. But yet, I’m hooked. I like this regrettable Miss. Bad- Attitude, who probably thinks they’re… Read More

Beyond the Books @ Kissin Blue Karen. Weekly topics that focus on life … beyond books. Prompts are provided so let’s discuss! Happy Thanksgiving!!! This is my first time celebrating the holiday. I’m writing this in advance, but by now I should be off the plane and feeling major jetlag (after a 23hr flight, and 15hr set back)…I’ve graduated from high school and am celebrating it by going on a 6 week trip to NYC with… Read More

Opposition (Lux, #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout  3.5 stars, tops. This book wasn’t bad. It’s just… it wasn’t necessary to make a whole book out of this. Nothing happened compared to the other books. This easily could’ve been 3 more chapters at the end of Origin, and it would’ve had a better pace.  I’m glad I’ve finished this series. I held off for so long because I adore it so much. This… Read More

Waiting on Wednesday @ Breaking the Spine. Show off upcoming releases that you’re eagerly anticipating. The only thing on my mind is the 10th Anniversary edition of Vampire Academy:  I cannot wait for this to come out! It’s such a great book, it deserves so much attention. It’s a shame it had to compete with Twilight (another fave of mine), because it does deserve more love. Yeah it’s cliche and stereotypical, but it’s really fun… Read More
