Easy Mondays

What is Easy Monday? Well I'm pretty sure everyone know that Mondays officially start the week and it can be exhausting. This is the start of the school week wether for yourself or maybe even your kids. Or it could simply be the start of the work week and a harsh dose of real life. So...Easy Monday is meant to connect you to some great romance reads that are currently out there. I personally love how Romance stories can get me to escape into someone else's HEA (happily ever after) and yeah maybe ignore the suckiness(yes i know not a real word but the best way to describe-->)  of Mondays.
P.S. The Title may say mMnday but lets be honest Romance is for everyday of the week

When I first started this blog I was a teenager. I loved all YA books but life got in the way of reading. Slowly I stopped reading for fun and when I did I stuck to authors that I had previously loved. Mostly John Green and Sarah Dessen. While I still anticipate movies like the Hunger Games and the divergent series I feel like I have not been as true to YA anymore. I honestly like to pick up a romance novel, especially with how easy Amazon and Kindle has make it. I think I want to start posting romance reviews on mondays.

moment of clarity

Well i haven't been on here for a while but that does not mean i am no longer reading. I have finally realized what the purpose of this blog is, I know seems late, anyways the purpose is not to appeal to everyone but to those who have similar tastes in books. We all have different opinions on what makes a good read and thats why it is so great to have so many different options for blogs to read. I find that the things that make me happiest is not how many page hits or followers i get but the comments of people who have read my blog and like my suggestions because we like the same or similar authors. Not to say that differing opinions are bad because it gets you out of your comfort zone and readings books you would never otherwise pick up and read

Review: Rush by Jonathan Friesen

Title: Rush
Author: Jonathan Friesen
Pages: 296
Pub. Date: June 2010
Synopsis (from B&N): Equal parts romance and heart-pounding action, this novel will leave you absolutely breathless. Join teen Jake King, an adrenaline junkie turned hotshot firefighter, as he struggles with the one risk he cannot take: losing his best friend and secret love, the beautiful Salome Lee. But to Jake, firefighting is like breathing pure adrenaline. And if he doesn't stop soon, they could all get burned

Opinion/Review: I have to be completely honest and say that when I picked this book up it was because I liked the author’s previous book (jerk California). The whole fire idea was a little iffy for me but I’m glad that I bought this book. The main character Jake is misunderstood by everyone except his best friend Salome. They don’t understand the need for the brain clearing adrenaline. He has to do his crazy stunts to feel like everybody does but one stunt leads to a series of life changes that could be disastrous for Jake, Salome and the town of Brockton, California. Let me start out by saying that this fictional town revolves around the firefighters who come during the wildfire season. Even Jake’s brother is part of these crews until his friend becomes an immortal (a secret firefighter club). The whole town turns on the king family, investigations are digging into mysterious deaths and Jake is a blind idiot. I definitely recommend this book but have to give it a 4 out of 5 just because it took Jake too long to see what was right under his nose.

Something like Fate

Yes something like Fate comes out may 4, 2010 and on friday I will post my review of Something Like Fate so that you can see what I thought and go buy the book on Tuesday May 4, 2010.

Lani and Erin are bonded for life. One thing that connects them is their fascination of fate. Lani wonders how much of our lives has already been decided and how much we can actually influence. Since the Unknown can unexpectedly change our lives forever, how much can we really control?
From the minute Lani meets Jason, she can't deny the intense connection they share. It feels like she's known him forever. She's not sure if he feels it, too. But it doesn't matter. Because Jason is Erin's boyfriend. Lani is determined to ignore her feelings for Jason, no matter how powerful they are, rather than risk hurting her best friend.
What if the boy who is your destiny is the one person you can't have?

LA book festival

As I said this past weekend I went to the Los Angeles festival of books. I have to say that it was overwhelming, so many YA authors that I have and hadn't heard of were there speaking on panels and signing books. Apparently this was the first year they had a YA stage and for certain events it was packed full. Unfortunately I missed the meg Cabot panel but I got to see the Blood, Fangs, and Temptation: Everything Vampire panel with some great vampire authors like Richelle Mead, Heather Brewster and others. They talked about their books and how they created the worlds their characters live in. They also answered a very interesting question. I'm paraphrasing but they talked about how all the YA vampire authors actually support and encourage each other and how other's success has pushed their books into the limelight an example being twilight. I was also able to see john green and David Levithan talk about their book Will Grayson Will Grayson. I especially liked how John Green talked about how he wanted to explore all types and forms of love there is not just the romanticized version we are taught by society and everybody else. And here is a link to some photos i had posted.
