Marvel Avengers Book Tag

Found this Book Tag on Kristin Kraves Books

The other night I went to go see the Avengers End Game movie and I must say I can’t get over the fact that it was 3 hours long (I’m 8 months pregnant, that’s a long time for me to sit and watch a full movie) I personally only watch the movies just cause I’m a big fan of the Guardians Of The Galaxy, so anything with them in it I’m all about. Here is the Marvel Avengers Book Tag, enjoy!

Kingdom Cold Book Review

Series: Kingdom Cold

I VOLUNTARILY READ AND REVIEW THIS COPY FROM NETGALLEY. ALL THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS ARE MY OWN, THANK YOU.

SPOILER FREE!

The beginning of the story caught me from the start but the more I read the more I just wanted to give up on the story. I felt like there were too much drama, royal drama and a weird love triangle that was just frustrating to me.

The story is fast paced with fewer details and confusion into everything. I love that it is first person view with different characters, so I know exactly what’s going on in each character’s mind however we did switch up characters rather fast.

Our main characters are Princess Charlotte and Prince Young and his brother Prince Minseo. Princess Charlotte is childish in the beginning but her character growth thru out the story was amazing to read especially in the ending. Out of all the characters in the story, Prince Young would have to be my favorite, I feel like he stayed true to himself and to others.

One character that was very frustrating to me and really got to me was Princess Charlotte’s servant Milly. Who was her friend or was supposed to be a friend but didn’t know how to be a friend. Without giving away to much about this character there was a certain part of the story where it was straight weird and disrespectful to Princess Charlotte when Milly and Prince Young were alone (Won’t give away anything). But now that I think about it the author did a good job writing about a character to really bug you.

The ending was the only part that I liked in the story. The story did feel rushed and less detailed and a huge messy love triangle with the characters however I kept reading only to find out what was going to happen with the characters. I do feel like something was missing to make this story truly incredible, I just feel like it was all over the place with everyone’s mix feelings.

The Currently Reading Book Tag

Untitled.jpg

Found this lovely Book Tag on Reader Voracious Book Blog!

Another day another glory! Today is just a wonderful day to write, it’s been raining all day with thunder and lightning! All this rain has put me into a writing mood so here is a Book Tag that’s been overdue on my book blog. Enjoy!

HOW MANY BOOKS DO YOU USUALLY READ AT ONCE?

Two! Always two. I have my physical copy on hand which I call my current read and on my Nook I have my Netgalley story that I either been approved of to read or volunteer to read.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHEN TO SWITCH BETWEEN MULTIPLE READS?

I kinda just go with the flow and how I feel. I tend to have a habit of focusing on the story that has the least pages to finish first rather then the book with the most pages however if a book is really good and most talked about than I tend to favor one read the most thru out the day and my second read later on in the evening with least amount of time reading. It really just all depends on how I manage to switch between my reads depending more on the story.

DO YOU EVER SWITCH BOOKMARKS PARTWAY THROUGH A BOOK?

No, Never! When it comes to my next read I always select a bookmark that I think would go with the story. (I have a small bookmark collection)

WHERE DO YOU KEEP THE BOOK(S) YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?

Right on my desk, however, there are times where I have fallen asleep with my book in my hands but for the most part, I always keep my physical copy on my desk right next to my Nook and diary and journal!

WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOU READ THE MOST?

Since I am pregnant I have all the time in the world to read. Right now when I wake up I read for 20 minutes then go eat. I read in the late afternoon then nap time. I read in the evening for bath time and then later at night before bedtime. So basically it’s reading all day for me unless its one of those days were I need “Fresh Time” to do other hobbies and catch up with other stuff I enjoy.

HOW LONG DO YOU TYPICALLY READ IN ONE SESSION?

Always 1 hour to 3 hours.

DO YOU READ HARDBACKS WITH THE DUST JACKET OFF?

Yes! All the time. And if you’re wondering why…I just do, I don’t really have a reason why I take it off.

WHAT POSITION DO YOU MAINLY USE TO READ?

Depends where I am located. I have three spots in my house where I read so first would be my bed so that means I am on my left side with every single pillow in the house next to me. The second location is the couch, I have movie theater couches so, therefore, I have my feet kicked up and laying back with one pillow behind me. My third reading spot is on the porch so I am just relaxing on my porch chair enjoying the weather when I am out there.

DO YOU TAKE YOUR CURRENT READ WITH YOU EVERYWHERE YOU GO?

What a silly question! Of course, I do! I take the physical copy more than my Nook.  I never know when or what is going to happen when I’m out in about especially now that I’m going to doctor visits and they have me wait for seriously forever I have to have a book with me no matter what when I leave my house. I’m always prepared.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU UPDATE YOUR GOODREADS READING PROGRESS?

Every night before bed. I always try to make it my goal to update my progress and pretty good at making sure I keep up with it.

Thanks for catching up with me on this fun Book Tag! I tag every Book Blogger out there who is interested in participating in this Tag.

The Sun Is Also A Star Book Review

61TMRCi9H2L._SX323_BO1,204,203,200_

Title: The Sun Is Also A Star

Series: Stand Alone

Author: Nicola Yoon

Publisher: Delacorte Press

Pages: 384

Rating:simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296

SPOILER FREE!

Young love…Who would have thought that I would actually fall in love with this story? I’m not really into romance stories it would have to really get me and I thought this story was pretty cute from the beginning to the very end.

This book has been in my TBR jar and I selected the title surprised to find out that the movie comes out next month so It was meant to be. I knew it was going to be a romance story and I had my fingers crossed it was going to be worth the read and sure enough it was. It’s different, unique, and beautiful…a love story I have not read before so it has originality for me to keep reading.

Our story starts out in New York City. We get to meet Natasha, a young girl who is originally born in Jamaica along with her younger brother and parents. Natasha and her family are being deported back to Jamaica, Natasha is doing everything she can for her and her family to be able to stay in America. Natasha is all about facts and what’s in front of her type of person.

We also get to meet Daniel, who is a Korean – American whose family is from South Korea. Daniels family have high expectations for him to be a doctor and has a very important interview to get into Yale. Daniel is all about fate and destiny and true love.

I definitely feel like the love tension between the two went really fast but in a really good way. We have two completely different people and one who truly believes in fate and tries to show the other to follow your heart and what it says.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers

You know its a good book when you really can’t put the book down and you want to know what’s going to happen and I mean I had to know what the fate was between these two young couples and where they were going to end up. So many questions running thru my head… Are they going to end up being together? Are they getting married on the same day they meet? Do Natasha and her family have to go back to Jamaica? The ending gave me goosebumps! I love endings of stories, it’s everything for me and it ended perfectly for me.

Get your popcorn and candies! The movie comes out next month and I’m very stoked to have a “Me-Time” to watch this!

Turtles All The Way Down Book Review

81cAi-RIjcL

Title: Turtles All The Way Down

Series: Stand Alone

Author: John Green

Publisher: Dutton Books

Pages: 286

Rating: simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296simple-black-heart-silhouette_318-10296

SPOILER FREE!

This is my second book I ever read from John Green and I love everything about it. There is just something about John Green’s writing that just keeps me going and going and not wanting to stop.

This story is exactly what I needed this weekend. Mix of mystery, romance, and a little bit of humor. The story was smoothly put together into place nicely where I have a full understanding of what’s going on and enough action going on where it kept me reading.

We have a story where a 16-year-old Aza who is the main character and her best friend Daisy are investigating a fugitive who is a billionaire who is missing and there is a hundred thousand dollar reward leading to the fugitive named Russel Pickett. Aza used to hang out with the fugitive’s son name Davis when they were kids. Aza and Davis reconnect with each other and build a relationship. Thru the whole book, we are in Aza’s point of view on things and what she is dealing with.

Aza has severe Anxiety issue when it comes to health. John Green did a wonderful job writing about Aza and how she feels and what she is thinking. I truly enjoyed reading about her and how she deals with her life and everyone around her. Her relationship with her mother and her best friend and Davis is wonderful to read seeing the character growth thru out the book with them.

I would like to share that I absolutely love Daisy, Aza’a best friend! If Daisy was in the real world her and I would have been good friends. I love that she is a Star Wars fanatic and who she is as a person makes me smile and laugh where you need a Daisy in your life. The character growth between her and Aza was amazing to me, they are two different people who are best friends which reminds me of my best friend that I grew up with.

I was so curious to what happened to the missing fugitive and also wondering what the relationship with the characters would end up towards the end of the book. I am very pleased with this book and highly recommend it!

Who’s ready for this lovely gem?

Book Event: The Writers Block Book Store Grand Re-Opening

IMG_2026

I have been looking forward to this day for a long time. I found out last year that they were relocating the book shop and I couldn’t wait for this day to come. Today was the grand reopening of the Writers Block Book Store here in Las Vegas, Nevada. What an amazingly beautiful day it was for this special day. I have so much to share with you all about this lovely book shop and trust me they did not let us book lovers down.

IMG_2035

The Writers Block was located at a different spot downtown and was a lot smaller of a book shop last year. With the new and approved location that is still downtown, they added more features and also kept some old features. One thing that they added was a coffee shop with some amazing goodies which is a lovely addition to any book shop. Not only is the shop a book shop but it is also a Bird Sanctuary which makes this book shop very unique.

IMG_2027

They really did a wonderful job bringing this book shop alive. When you walk in you will notice right away a big bird cage with a gift shop/ register where you check out when you purchased your books with the coffee/ tea being served with some delicious snacks available for your taste.

IMG_2032

IMG_2030.JPG

With the new location, the best part is that the book shop is way bigger than the old location they had. Bigger space means more books. I was extremely excited to see how this place came together. Extremely beautiful from the outside to the inside of the shop. I loved how detailed everything was from top to bottom and the fact that you can tell that they truly put their hearts into this book shop. Everyone was extremely nice and made you feel welcomed.

With it being a full house for the grand reopening of the shop I did my best to get as many photos as I can with being 7 months pregnant with a big belly and of course I did run into people Because I was so amazed at how everything turned out. Here are the lovely shots I captured of this amazing grand opening of this one of a kind book shop.

They had a section for every book lover out there. I was blown away and very satisfied as a book lover. Fingers crossed for some of my favorite book authors to possibly do a book signing here also and hope for a YA book club too! One more thing, I didn’t leave this book shop empty handed my boyfriend purchased the book I been wanting for some time…

If any of you book lovers are in Las Vegas and want to stop at a unique lovely book shop I highly recommend this book shop, you won’t be disappointed.
