Music Monday - Evanescence

This meme is hosted over at Always Me . This band is probably one of my top three favorites of all time. I'll be honest, it's mainly because Amy Lee is stunning, talented, and my first female celebrity crush. She is still a huge crush of mine. 

Book Breakdown - Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles)

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.  Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner. Book Breakdown  Okay so because everyone kept telling to me read the series as it gets much better. I caved. I don't usually do this kind of thing. Once I make up my own mind about something I stick with it. But for some reason I caved and read Sc

50/50 Friday - Place You Buy the Most/Least Books

This meme is hosted here and over at Blue Eye Books . What is 50/50 Friday?  Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. Topic for the Week Place You Buy the Most/Least Books LEAST Barnes & Noble Books A Million  Half Price Books - This one makes me sad Any bookstore  So I buy most of my books online as the nearest book store is about 40 minutes away with good traffic. Anytime I get to go that way I spend all my money at Half Price Books and sometimes Barnes & Noble. But these will have to be my least places I've bought books. Also there is no Books A Million near me which is sad because back before I moved I went there all the time, had a membership card and everything.  MOST Bookoutlet Amazon Ebay I have found a lot of whole series on Ebay for cheap which is nice. Mostly, I just use Amazon and Bookoutlet. There are pretty cheap whi

Music Monday - Breaking Benjamin

This meme is hosted by Always Me .  Breaking Benjamin is one of my favorites bands ever. I have loved them for so long I can't even remember. So I wanted to share a few of my favorite songs. I have way more than two favorites but here is two of my favorites. 

Nevermore - Book Breakdown

Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look.  Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.  As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightma

Music Monday - Jessica Jung

This meme is hosted over at Always Me . Jessica has always been my bias in SNSD and when she was kicked out... well my love for certain members in the group went way down. I thought I Jessica would quit music and just focus on her fashion line. I'm so glad that I was wrong! Her voice is just too good. Enjoy the songs below. They are both in English and one is a cover of a song you might know. 

When Dimple Met Rishi - Book Breakdown

The rom-com that everyone’s talking about! Eleanor & Park meets Bollywood in this hilarious and heartfelt novel about two Indian-American teens whose parents conspire to arrange their marriage. Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right? Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself. The Sh

June Wrap Up!

I've only read ten books this month. I don't know why but I seem to be slowing down in my reading. Last year in June I read sixteen. I will try harder this month to read more books! I can do it. I hope... I also just noticed that my ratings seem to be everywhere for the reads this month. Hopefully I have more 4-5 star reads this month.
