February Book Haul

This past month I got quite a few really cheap reads. I've not read them all and some I've written reviews for and haven't posted them yet. They are coming soon, I swear. So did you sunflowers get anything last month? Let me know below if you have read any of these books and what you thought of them.

Oblivion (Lux Series 1.5) - Mini Review

Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black… I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it. And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are. But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game. Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never le

Discussion Challenge 2016 #1 - Female/Male POV

In case you don't know what this is all about. It's a way to get bloggers talking more, to discuss books or blogging. It's actually really a cool idea. I don't do enough discuss posts, so this is an awesome way to start into that. This is my first post and it's also serving as my post to let everyone know I'm joining this as per the rules found here . My goal is: 13-24 – Creative Conversationalist So what I wanted to discuss is something that my partner, little sister, and I have talked about countless times. Well, it's actually them ganging up on me and saying I'm narrowed minded and should branch out more. I've found that for me, it's harder to read from the view point of a male. Any male, no matter the age. Don't get me wrong I've read and enjoyed a few books that are lead by a male character, like Harry Potter, Oblivion, & Intertwined. So I don't hate them, I just have a hard time connecting to the character that way. I mean,

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read . This Week's Prompt  Well, I guess this one isn't really a prompt but the question is to name our top 10 book covers. So this one is going to be kind of hard and probably no one will agree with my choices but these are mine.  I could just name like 10 covers from Vampire Knight but that wouldn't be any fun would it? So yeah, I will look through and decide my favorite of them all and just add it. Also, these are in no special order. I could never ever do that, it would be like pulling out my own teeth. Also, these are just judging book covers, I may love the cover but hate the book its

The 100 - Series Review (TV Talk)

No one has set foot on Earth in centuries -- until now. Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth's radioactive surface. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents -- considered expendable by society -- are being sent on a dangerous mission: to recolonize the planet. It could be their second chance at life...or it could be a suicide mission. CLARKE was arrested for treason, though she's haunted by the memory of what she really did. WELLS, the chancellor's son, came to Earth for the girl he loves -- but will she ever forgive him? Reckless BELLAMY fought his way onto the transport pod to protect his sister, the other half of the only pair of siblings in the universe. And GLASS managed to escape back onto the ship, only to find that life there is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth. Confronted with a savage land and haunted by secrets from their pasts, the hundred must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes

2 Mini Poetry Book Reviews

Life is random and so is this book.  It is a collection of poems arranged in no particular order. There are happy poems, sad poems, serious poems, poems about real life and poems that are total fiction. There are poems about love, poems about cats, poems for children, and there is even one about a...  From one page to the next you don't know what you are going to find. Come with me and climb a rainbow one color at a time until we reach the clouds. We can drift away with the billowing grey on a quest to catch a wandering star. And on that star    we can make a wish that out moment will last forever. Book Breakdown This was a lovely collection of poems. Some are just so beautiful that I had to read them again right after I finished. I've actually never read a book of poetry before so I didn't know what to expect but it wasn't this. This was so much better than I thought it would be. I've even written one down and used it to make my own bookmark.  For anyone who loves

Feature & Follow Friday #14

You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me, everyone wins. The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read . This Week's Prompt: What are some of your biggest pet peeves with books? i.e. love triangles etc. Insta-Love! I HATE it so much. It just makes no sense and it doesn't give the characters a chance to really fall in love. I've said this many many times, love is something that takes time to build. There is no love at first sight. There is lust at first sight and even that can eventually lead to love. But you can't just look a person and fall in love. You know nothing about them.  Next I generally hate what I believe is called the 'Alpha Male' where the guy won't even let

February Wrap Up!

I didn't get to read too much this month, a lot of stuff kept me from reading. I've also taken up tutoring a high school student. So add that to my already full plate makes for a sad reading month. Though I'm actually proud I read this many books, granted they're all short but still. So let me know below what you read last month and if you've read any of the books I did.  Falling Kingdoms: 4 Stars Rainbows and Roses: 5 Stars Encounter: 5 Stars The 100: Homecoming: 3 Stars
