¡Hola a todos!
Luego de tanto tiempo alejada del blog es bueno estar de vuelta con unas merecidas vacaciones lejos de la universidad c: ¿y qué mejor que regresar con un #booktag para conocernos mejor?
Primero que todo, quiero agradecer a la encantadora administradora del blog Perdida entre libros por nominarme a este #booktag :) Así que, ¡muchas gracias!

¿En qué consiste?
Este #booktag tiene como fin el conocernos mejor y ayudarnos a crecer como blogs (menos de 200 seguidores). También viene con un par de reglas:

  Comunicar a los 11 blogs nominados para que estén enterados.
 Si los blogs nominados desean hacer el tag dejar un comentario para poder verlo y comentarlo.

Let's start...
  • Si pudieras hablar con un escritor, ¿cuál sería?
Siendo sincera, desde que comencé el blog he hablado con un par de escritores, algunos conocidos y otros no, algunos de los cuales soy admiradora y otros no; sin embargo, en general soy muy mala iniciando conversaciones con quien sea. Pero, si pudiera hablar con alguno o alguna ahora mismo en persona, creo que elegiría a J. L. Armentrout, she is a badass! ¡Me encantan sus libros!
  • ¿Cuál es tu libro favorito?
¡Es tan difícil elegir solo uno! Pero, debo admitir que el último libro que me dejó con resaca fue Wait for it de Mariana Zapata, lo terminé hoy en la mañana y me fascinó por completo la trama y los personajes.
  • ¿Eres capas de disfrazarte de un personaje literario para ir al cine con tus amigos?
No soy de ir mucho al cine porque no me gustan las películas dobladas, además, soy muy tímida y mis amigas son peores así que creo que la respuesta es no 😔.
  • Si fueras un personaje de un libro, ¿cuál serías?
Sinceramente me encantaría ser Kat para poder usar al sexy Daemon 😏 de almohada 👿.
  • ¿Tienes un ritual antes de leer? Si o no ¿cuál es?
Cuando tengo que estudiar para un certamen, siempre intento estudiar al menos una hora y luego darme un pequeño recreo y leer un capítulo (o diez) de cualquier libro que me llame la atención en el momento. En general, siempre termino leyendo sin planearlo.
  • ¿Te gusta la película de cazadores de sombra?
No. Recuerdo que mi mejor amiga de ese entonces me dijo que leyera el libro y así podía acompañarla a ver la película, eso fue alrededor de dos semanas antes de que se estrenara la película. Terminé leyéndome la saga completa antes de ver Cazadores de sombra, y me decepcionó. Desde ahí, aprendí que no debo ilusionarme con las adaptaciones de libros. 
  • ¿Cuál género literario es tu favorito?
De todos, romance new adult. Aunque por lo general ni me fijo en qué género son y no me doy cuenta hasta que ya voy por la mitad del libro. O cuando veo la portada me hago una idea (en especial si tienen chicos/hombres atractivos sin polera en la portada).
  • ¿Haz leído algún libro que a plena vista no te gusto, pero luego de leerlo sí?
No estoy segura, pero creo que me ha pasado un par de veces. Nunca hay que juzgar antes de conocer.
  • ¿Cuál fue tu primer libro?
No tengo ni la menor idea.
  • ¿Qué libro para ti vale la pena, para que lo adapten a una versión cinematográfica?
Hay varios libros que me gustaría que adaptaran y a la misma vez no, entre ellos cualquiera de CoHo/JLA.
  • ¿Haz llorado alguna vez con un libro? Si o no ¿cuál?
Soy un poco sensible cuando se trata de libros, así que, sí, he llorado varias veces. Con A thousand boy kisses lloré durante todo el libro; me quedé sin lágrimas con It ends with us; y lo mismo con varios otros que simplemente me llegaron al corazón 😊.
#Confesión
Cuando leí Me before you lloré con el final del libro, pero me reí durante toda la película.
Odié la película de Maze Runner.

¡Mis preguntas!
1. ¿Cuál fue el último personaje al cual quisiste golpear? ¿Por qué?
2. ¿Último libro con el cual reíste? 
3. Si pudieras elegir un solo libro para leer el resto de tu vida, ¿cuál sería? 
4. ¿Libro digital o en papel? 
5. ¿Prefieres leer de día o de noche? ¿Por qué? 
6. ¿Personaje literario favorito? 
7. ¿A qué libro le cambiarías el final? ¿Por qué? 
8. ¿Qué libro has leído más veces? 
9. ¿Cómo eliges tu próxima lectura? 
10. ¿Alguna vez te ha gustado más una adaptación que el libro? 
11. ¿Chico malo o bueno?

Happy Bookmas!

December 17, 2016, 2 Comments | Comentarios


🎅🎄 Happy holidays | bookmas | to everyone! 🎄🎅

I know I have been missed a lot in the past weeks, but every effort has its reward and now I have the next two months completely free-college which means there would be amazing new things! Plus, summer is here and I hate going out when it is too hot, so what is better than staying inside (where is colder) reading something? Nada.

What is coming... ♡
1. Giveaways (there would be little as well as big ones)
2. Reviews (books I have read, I am reading, and I will be reading)
3. Más español por estos lados (I know it is not relevant, but I have to put it somewhere for me to actually do it)
4. New #tips (there are a few in Spanish)
5. Free posts (I will be writing whatever comes to my mind and think would be relevant for everyone)
Etc.
 Between Books wishes you all a very happy holidays!

Oleah Chronicles: Truth

December 16, 2016, 0 Comments | Comentarios


I received a hard copy for an honest review
                                                                               










25626729

PAGES: 220

What would you do if everything you thought to be true in your life were a lie?

Sixteen-year-old Angel Seriki is forced to face overwhelming truths about her so-called ordinary family when she meets Zander Black; a new student to her high school who is smart, charming and devastatingly beautiful. The revelations he uncovers to her about a danger that threatens to resurface from a past she never knew was her own, changes everything. Life as she knows it will never be the same again. In order to keep her family safe, she has no choice but to trust Zander, despite his connection to her enemy. He’s the only resource she has if she ever expects to understand the true reality of who and what she is. However, things become complicated when neither can ignore the magnetic energy between them. As their relationship and feelings deepen, so do the risks involved. She must now accept her fate, Even if that means giving up everything she knows, including being human.
 


Review:

 Promising concept! Oleah, half lion, half human. I am an advent supernatural reader as well as young adult. And the concept of the book had me! I was very interested in reading the novel. When reading this book I was very pleased about the origins of the characters. I found the main character Angel to be a little naive and obvious. The romantic connection between Zander and her was okay. The pace of the novel was fast paced, perfect for this novel because it contained a lot of information. The one thing I didn't like was some of the dialogue. Sixteen-year-old that I know don't use certain terms. But all in all,  it was a cool read. 
rate:3/5 stars  








Michelle  JohnsonThroughout my childhood, I was always told I had a very creative imagination. I was drawn to stories of mythical creatures and all things that would usually give my peers the heebie geebies. Shows like Tales from the Crypt Keeper and Buffy the Vampire Slayer were among some of my favorites.

I developed a strong passion for design and illustration, drawing the ideas that arose in my head and finding great excitement in bringing them to life. This led me to pursue a career in graphic design and marketing so that I could always use my creativity to the fullest.

I have always loved reading and the way a compelling story would allow my mind to absorb its detailed imagery. I began to use writing as a tool to bring my creative thoughts to fruition one day, which has brought me to this moment.

I'm a romantic at heart and a sucker for stories about true love which is reflected in my writing and helped bring the Oleah Chronicles to life. I hope you enjoy my first book and through it you experience the eccentric vision that began in my mind so long ago

Book review: Awakening, Blood Line by : Tiera Rice

December 10, 2016, 0 Comments | Comentarios


I received an ARC for an honest review! Thank you. 







32603220Antanasia knows better than anyone that being royal comes with lots of expectations. Born into war as a Vampyre Witch, she has to battle the ultimate enemy: her own blood. When she has a terrifying Vision, Antanasia fights harder than ever to prevent it from coming to pass. Will she succeed? Or does she die trying?

Nadia is an average teenager celebrating her nineteenth birthday. But her day turns upside down when she starts developing unusual abilities that make her question everything she knew. Searching for answers to her predicament, she finds herself trusting Nicolae, a stranger with a familiar presence. Why does she feel so drawn to him? Will Nadia find answers to the questions about her past and take on her new role willingly? Or will she choose to remain in the dark and deny her destiny?




Review: If I had to use one word to describe this book it would be WOW! this was a great read. Tiera Rice has outdone herself. Her interpretation of the vampire culture is very original. And I do know vampire culture! I'm a die hard vampire fan and when I heard of this book I had to read it. I love the historic vibe the book gives. Ms.Rice did an excellent job with the time period jumps and did not confuse me. The book has an excellent flow.The plot is solid and the character is well developed. This book gives female readers a bad ass female to look up to. I recommend this book to all my readers and followers!!! And I look forward to the next installment. 


RATE: 4.8/5
PAGES:244

Book Review : A Time To Reap By Jonas Lee

A Time To Reap,The Legend Of Carter Gabel By : Jonas Lee



~I received a copy for an honest review. ~
Paperback250 pages



A Time to Reap (The Legend of Carter Gabel, #1)
Pemberton Academy is not just a school, it’s a gathering place for the children of the future that are afflicted with Temporal Displacement and Telepathy; in short, time travelers and mind readers who have been diagnosed with this “disease.” The Academy is not all as it seems after an explosion nearly takes one of its classmates, but not before Carter Gabel rescues her by using an unknown symptom related to his described illness. An unsanctioned group called the Program begins taking notice as the two classmates exhibit stronger abilities when they are together. Carter's sense of reality begins to unwind as he learns more about his estranged father's involvement with it all. 

Carter will have to overcome the past of his father leaving, the present of an unknown adversary hunting him down and a future that seems to change with each decision he makes. He will have to learn who to trust out of the people in his life if he wants to conquer the looming notion that the government may be hunting him down because of his developing abilities.






Review: When I first ran across this novel I was immediately interested. The cover is beautifully detailed and creative. This was my first time reading a time travel novel and am glad that it's my first, it left high standards in my mind. This book is very creative and interesting ! the characters are fresh and unique. I really enjoyed that the novel contained loads of details and is fasted paced. My favorite character has to be Carter, he is such a brave and caring person and you can see this with his relationship with Mo. At first, I thought their relationship developed really fast, but it works. All in all Mr. Lee has done an outstanding job! I totally recommend this book to people who enjoy time travel, romance, and action.


 
Rate: 4/5 STARS 




Writing out of the Black Hills of South Dakota, Jonas likes coming up with new and creative worlds that speak to the plausible while remaining believable. With a fist-full of peanut M&Ms and a cup of coffee, he has written two novels about a snarky, supernatural teen able to time travel and more. 

Beyond writing, Jonas has a gift for useless knowledge through watching trivia shows and a love for cinematic adventures. Music fuels his writing and you can see him actively on Spotify almost every day. 

Oh, and let's not forget video games...he likes those too much if there is such a thing.
