Q: Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?

Only two!  If there is no other option, let's buy those two books.  Recently I read the synopsis of  Michelle Hodkin's The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer after learning a little bit about its characters at the YA Crush Tournament at Stuck In YA Books.  So, we have my first buy : The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.  We'll see if I end being a fan from Team Noah.

So many possibilities, but the magic card just provides for two books.  My second one would be a hardcover version of A Place In This Life by Julie Rieman Duck.  I really like that book.  I think it is a book capable of awakening the inner reader inside the clueless book allergic.

I have finished my book shopping madness.  Say hi and leave a comment so I can return your follow.  Look forward to all your visits!

Emerald City Review & Author Interview + Giveaway!

I received this book via Netgalley.  I had been drawn to the phrase on it's cover: "They say it's darkest just before dawn".  That phrase reflects a big deal of emotion. I couldn't wait to read this book. Later, the opportunity to be part of this blog tour presented and here is my review for this book by author Alicia K. Leppert.

Emerald City tells the story of a young woman named Olivia, who after facing a series of emotionally arousing situations questions her life. Amid these circumstances meets Jude, a young man who from the beginning proves to be friendly and demonstrate a genuine interest in her welfare. Time passes by and this relationship goes through a metamorphosis, where not only a genuine interest for friendship is present, but also love becomes a part of their lives. When this feeling appears, both characters will face decisions that affect them both greatly.  Their lives will have a turn and they will have to be stronger than ever to defend what the…

Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you? Since I opened the first book on my Mom's bookshelf I haven't stop reading.  So I guess that during those dark times I had my bookish news at my Mom's bookshelf.  At high school, I used to browse around until I could find something with good synopsis and interesting cover.  I read a lot of Isabelle Allende from the school's library.  During that era of the dark times, magical realism was essential.

Audio review: Cerulean by Anna Kiss

Cerulean by Anna Kyss

*Copy provided for an honest review purpose

Cerulean has affinity to the audio format. The story has a good pace and intrinsic rhythm which is fantastic for the audio. This audio seemed short to me. While listening to Cerulean I was immerse in the story.I have to confess that I was truly surprise with the evolution of the story. At first I thought it was about mermaids but it evolves into something new. The main character lives in a totalitarian society where she feels constrained by lack of choices and diversity on her life. Chey is a young girl with many questions. That is why she ends finding answers that change life as she knows it.
Cerulean is narrated by Melissa Moran. This narrator has a beautiful voice, perfect for this audiobook. The narration is single voiced and Moran is a skillful narrator. To help the listener differ…
