Back to School: Recommendations & Rereading Books.

This BACK TO SCHOOL segment I have started is really exciting for me. I have a outfit inspired Percy Jackson style post if you want to check that out, and there are going to be more to come. I want to help you guys with the stress of school the best way I know how. There is nothing worse then getting a book and start reading and it letting you down or you just cant get into it. In times like this I like to revert to my favorite books. Go and grab a book you already know you love and that makes you laugh. You haven't read it in awhile and chances are you remember the major parts of the books, but you don't remember it all. There are always specific lines in your favorite books that made you love and treasure that book. Most of the time it is little things that add up that made you love it, and little things are easily forgotten at times. If you are one of the people who do not like to reread books then don't fear. I am going to show you some of my favorite books and hopeful…

Series: The Vampire Academy book #5  Overall Rating on Audible: 4.5/5 Published: Published May 18th 2010 by Penguin Razorbill  Hours: Length: 13 hrs and 11 mins My Rating 5/5 Goodreads "Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong...

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri's birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's-and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can't wait for their real lives beyond the Academy's iron gates to begin. But Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. And this time he won't rest until Rose joins him... forever."

Okay I did the info about this book a little different since I listened to the audiobook. I used the Audible rating instead of Goodre…

Audiobook Review: Blood Promise By:Richelle Mead

Series: The Vampire Academy (#4) By: Richelle Mead Overall Rating on Goodreads: 4.39 Published: August 25th 2009 by Penguin Razorbill Pages: 503 Favorite Quote: "There was a lot of apologizing going on, but I realized that was how it was with people you cared about. You forgave each other and moved on.” My Rating: 4/5 stars Goodreads "The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters ... Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She'll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep t…

Opal By: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: Opal (Lux #3) By: Jennifer L. Armentrout Overall Raiting on Goodreads: 4.42 Published: December 11th 2012 By: Entangled Teen Pages: 382 Favorite Quote: “You haven't been smiling much. I missed it, so I decided to reward you for doing it." "Reward me?" I laughed. "God, only you would think kissing someone is a reward." "You know it is. My lips change lives, baby.” My Rating: 5/5 Stars Goodreads No one is like Daemon Black.

"When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization respon…

Audiobook Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Series: (The Lunar Chronicles #3 By: Marissa Meyer) Overall Rating on Goodreads: 4.50 Published: February 4th 2014 by Feiwel & Friends Pages: 550 Favorite Quote: “Maybe there isn’t such a thing as fate. Maybe it’s just the opportunities we’re given, and what we do with them. I’m beginning to think that maybe great, epic romances don’t just happen. We have to make them ourselves.” My Rating: 4.5/5 Goodreads "In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has h…

Weekend Reads

When I made videos I use to do a Friday's reads every week. I really enjoyed letting you guys know what I would be reading in my free time so I decided to still do it in a blog post.
WHAT I AM READING

Meanwhile, in small town Virginia, Chloe McClellan’s first day of sophomore year was an epic fail. After she becomes the target of the fiery queen of the It-Girls in gym, she gains instant notoriety when she’s struck by lightning. That’s when things start to get weird.

There are disconcerting gaps in her memory, and freaky weather seems to follow her everywhere. She comes to believe that either she’s going insane, or her accident has awoken a terrifying creature from mythology, triggering the final countdown to the extinction of humankind.

Chloe finds unlikely help from a trio of male classmates: the grounded capta…

Back to School: Percy Jackson Style

As any fangirl or fanboy wherever you go you want to show your love of books. Being lovers of books we are a unique kind. We crush over fictional characters, they become our best friends, when they hurt we hurt. Books are our escape, our passion, our fun, hobby, friend, books are our lives. Pride comes with being a book nerd and it's something you should embrace. These books we love sometimes take over. We love them so much we want to be a part of that world. I wanted to help find ways for you to always feel close to your favorite books and characters.
This week I wanted to do Percy Jackson because I mean who doesn't like Percy Jackson?! These outfits are loosely inspired by some of the loved characters from The Percy Jackson series or the book covers. I stayed on pinterest for hours (shocker right?) to find outfits that have simple pieces that you can find in your closet or wouldn't be hard to find for a good price at stores. I also wanted to find outfits that could easi…

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted byBreaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Chasing Power By: Sarah Beth Durst Publishing Date: October 14th 2014 Goodreads Lies, secrets, and magic — three things that define Kayla's life.

Sixteen-year-old Kayla plans to spend her summer hanging out on the beach in Santa Barbara and stealing whatever she wants, whenever she wants it. Born with the ability to move things with her mind — things like credit cards, diamond rings, and buttons on cash registers — she has become a master shoplifter. She steals to build up a safety net, enough money for her and her mom to be able to flee if her dad finds them again. Well, that, and the thrill of using her secret talents.

But her summer plans change when she's caught stealing by a boy named Daniel — a boy who needs her help and is willing to blackmail her to get it. Daniel has a talent of his own. He can teleport, appearing anywher…

Review: Onyx By: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: The Lux #2 Average Rating on Goodreads: 4.40 Published: August 14th 2012 By: Entangled Teen Pages: 366 Favorite Quotes: “Your mail could've waited." Daemon followed me into the kitchen. "What is it? Just books?"
Grabbing the OJ from the fridge, I sighed. People who didn't heart books didn't understand.”
My Rating 4.5/5 Stars Goodreads Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like…

Book Review: Shadow Kiss By: Richelle Mead

Series: Vampire Academy book #3 Average Rating on Goodreads: 4.43 Published: November 13th 2008 by: Razorbill Pages: 443 Favorite Quote: “Throughout history, people with new ideas—who think differently and try to change things—have always been called troublemakers.” Goodreads It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all... might be seeing ghosts.

As Rose questions her sanity, new complications arise. Lissa has begun experimenting with her magic once more, their enemy Victor Dashkov might be set free, and Rose's forbidden relationship with Dimitri is starting to heat up again. But when a deadly threat no one saw coming changes their entire world, Rose must put her own life on the line - and choose between the two people she loves most.
So I have to be honest here, I am a HUGE baby. Yup I …

Stacking The Shelves

This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks. Physical Books The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #1) By: Erika Johansen "On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen’s Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus.

Review: Obsidian By: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: The Lux series #1 Average Rating on Goodreads: 4.29 Published: May 8th 2012 by: Entangled Teen Pages: 335 Favorite Quote: “I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect." His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe. "The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It's just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.”   Goodreads "Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wav…
