I need my own Personal Demon

If you haven't read Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers I'm going to smack you upside the head! Well ok...I could try. This is one of my favorite books and I can guarantee that you will be left swooning for Luc (OMG!!!) and Gabe (sigh). So go grab your copy now. I COMMAND YOU!!!


With the release of the next book in the series - Original Sin - coming up fast (July 5th US) Lisa is giving us little teasers everyday. And these are so so very hot!! Here is todays teaser. Please proceed with CAUTION


Frannie POV: I lead Luc to the bed, then pull him into another kiss. We sink into the sheets, and I just want to lose myself in him—not to have to think about anything for a little while. But when I reach for the button of his jeans, he twines his fingers in mine and brings my hand up to his face, where he kisses the back of my fingers.
“Not like this, Frannie. Our first time isn’t going to be because of him.”


*SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!* Glad to have that out of my system. 

Here's another bonus - Lisa is hosting a contest too. Check out the deets here

Top Ten List #1


I've seen a lot of blogs compiling Top Ten lists and decided to post one too. This is my first Top Ten list and is my personal opinion. 

As you know I read way too much (if you didn't read profile info). I sometimes tend to pick up a book solely based on the book covers. I mean, come on...you have to admit some are better looking than others right?! Below you will find the 10 Young Adult fiction book covers I totally adore. 

In random order (and I do mean random): 



Ink Exchange (Wicked Lovely #2) by Melissa Marr.




Hush Hush (Hush Hush Saga #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick




Fallen (Fallen Angels #1) by Lauren Kate




City of Bones (Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare




Dance with a Vampire (Vampire Kisses #4) by Ellen Schreiber




Nightshade (Nightshade #1) by Andrea Cremer




Blood Feud (Drake Chronicles #2) by Alyxandra Harvey




Royal Blood (Vampire Kisses #6) by Ellen Schreiber




The Ghost and the Goth (Book #1) by Stacey Kade




Confessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend (Omnibus containing Got Fangs? and Circus of the Darned) by Katie MacAlister writing as Katie Maxwell.


Don't all these covers look pretty? These are just 10 covers I picked out so there are many more. 

Which one/ones do you like best from my list? And what would you add or remove? 
What does your list contain?

The Harder They Fall

So with all the YA and Paranormal Romance books out there, a lot of fans have taken up writing fan fiction. From Harry Potter to Twilght Saga and now the more recent Mortal Instrument Series. Fan fiction seems to be flourishing!     

                                                                                                                        

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling




The Mortal Instrument Series by Cassandra Clare



A fellow booklover recommended I read a certain piece of fanfict called The Harder They Fall. Its based on the popular YA vampire romance series The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. I'm sure I don't need to elaborate on what this book is all about now, do I?


Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

The Harder They Fall is by far one of the best fan fiction stories I've read.....EVER!!! It evoked so many emotions in me. I laughed, I weeped (I'm talking major bawling here), I got so angry that at some point I just wanted to stop reading altogether (but didn't of course!). THTF made me feel things I didn't even feel while reading the original story. Its just that GOOD!


So if you're looking for some good fanfiction, make sure to check out THE HARDER THEY FALL by Ironic Twist.

You can find this amazing piece of awesomeness here

The Awesomeness that is Toni Blake

Hey y'all

So today was a regular day. Did all the regular stuff I normally do. Since my final semester examinations have begun (*heavy sigh) I find myself getting well acquainted with my study notes. 

Then like sunshine after a heavy shower of rain (I love the rains btw. I just couldn't come up with a better simile due to my extreme level of excitement) I received a signed...yes SIGNED copy of The Red Diary by the amazing TONI BLAKE

 

This is one of my favorite books and I literally cried at some point while reading it. I'm not much of a sobber so the fact that I was reduced to tears (happy tears included) is quite an achievement. For Toni...not me. LOL


Thank you Toni for really making my day. 

I hope you guys check this one out cause its a really good read. 

You can read about this book here.

Newbie Here

Hi guys *waves*

If your reading this then THANK YOU.

This is my very first blog and I'm not sure how this works but I'll give it a try.

Random thoughts keep popping into my head at random moments so I decided to record this randomness from time to time. Today's random thought was ''Why not start a blog?"

So here I am. Making an attempt and hopefully I won't fail.

I don't understand how to add widgets and stuff so I would like it if some of you helped me out.

That's it for now.

Keep visiting.
