Unexpected Hiatus

If projects were people, mine would have abandonment issues.

I haven’t been on this blog for, what, one month and I am ashamed. I keep trying new things and don’t ever finish what I’ve started. I was really hoping that this blog would be different. Why? Cause it was suppose to  be about books and I LOVE books and I love to read! But, as usual, I allowed life to get in the way of doing things that I love.

My first excuse was that my laptop broke down. (R.I.P Lappy) but it’s not really an excuse when you’ve got access to an ipad, right?

My second excuse was that I was so busy doing things at home, but if you really love doing something, you’d make time to do it no matter what.

And my third excuse? Well, I don’t really have one. I procrastinated, to be honest. I would read and read and read and I would keep telling myself, ‘I have to do a review on this book!’ but I just never really got around to it.

Well now ladies and gents, I have a whole new computer!

Computer

I pretty much set it up myself 😀 (not that there was much to set up to begin with) and now I have no excuse not to be posting on this blog. I have an entire month again before school begins and I need to stop procrastinating my life away.

I am also thinking of making this blog more than just about books. Maybe a few personal posts on life and whatever else may come my way.

So, here; have a random chicken from my grandmother’s yard

And wish me luck and I hope you will stick around and enjoy (^w^)

This is so awesome!!

I read ‘The Selection’ by Kiera Cass and ‘Unraveling’ by Elizabeth Norris. Both were really good so I look forward to their second instalments.

‘Reboot’ by Amy Tintera looks like it’d be an interesting read. So does ‘Arclight’ by Josin L. McQuein.

Ugh! Why can’t books come out in Trinidad the same time they’re released in where ever else?! I want these books nooooowwww! T.T

I bought two more books today…

And yes, I am fully aware that I bought six books over the last week or so, but this is not what this post is about. Oh no my dear followers. This post is about what else I saw in my lovely book-store today.

My lovely, local book-store got some new books in this month and I was excited to see exactly what new books were now available to me. And while I was noting books that I’d like to get when I have more money and making the tough decision of which ones I should get now and calculating how much money it will cost, my eyes fell upon a book that literally stopped me in my tracks. I was staring at it for a full minute before I realized what it was about. 

This book my friends, was none other than;

What. The. Actual. Fudge?

Is this for real? Are they for real?? I swear if I wasn’t holding the actual book in my hand, I wouldn’t believe if you told me that something like this existed!

Okay, Okay, I’m exaggerating, but I mean come on! Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray? My mind can’t even process something like this! Again, exaggerating. 

And for those who are curious, here’s the synopsis;

Meet artist Rosemary Hall and follow her inevitable downfall brought by her lust for the famous Dorian Gray—a tale both familiar and new in this brilliant erotic mash up of one of the world’s most beloved novels. With a mix of old fashioned Victorian debauchery and erotic 21st century lust this cleverly sexed-up classic will leave you wanting more!

First published to sensational scandal amidst accusations that the novel was hedonist, unclean, and depicted distorted views of morality The Picture of Dorian Gray was a hit back in the day. In 1890 the Daily Chronicle wrote that Wilde’s novel “will taint every young mind that comes in contact with it.” Well Victorian critics, gird your loins and prepare to meet Audrey Ember’s Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray: hotter, lewder, sexier, steamier, and more morally corrupt than Oscar Wilde’s original story! 

Rediscover this celebrated novel as it traces the moral degeneration of a beautiful young Londoner seduced by art and beauty into a cruel and reckless pursuer of pleasure. Meet artist Rosemary Hall and follow her inevitable downfall brought by her lust for the famous Dorian Gray—a tale both familiar and new in this brilliant erotic mash up of one of the world’s most beloved novels. 

With a mix of old fashioned Victorian debauchery and erotic 21st century lust this cleverly sexed-up classic will leave you wanting more!

It’s four hundred pages long and I just found out that it was published in December 2012… Wow, we really do get our books late (O_o)… Click the photo for more details, reviews and etc. Please note that this is just my opinion on this book. I know that there are others out there who are into books like these. In fact, my best friend is a huge fan of Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m not judging those who books like those. I’m just saying that it kind if insulting to a classic to do something like to it. Again, my opinion. And if you don’t agree, cool. I ain’t here to fight anyone down on their choice of reading. So we cool?

Awesome sauce (^w^)

Well at least my day wasn’t totally ruined by poorly written books. I did manage to get two books that I really wanted to read.

AND

Yay me! Also, I have three book reviews to do by the end of this week. I’m being very lackadaisical with my reviews. I mean, I read three lovely and wonderful books and I should write about them, right?

Anyway, happy reading everyone. It’s cold and rainy. The perfect setting to curl up with my stuffed bear and a good book.

No internet? Have no fear! Read a book instead!

I haven’t had internet since Friday. Why? My guess is that a really tall truck passed by and yanked the net cable down. And when they saw what they did, they just toss the cable in our yard…

-_-… really?

My family (except for me and my dad) were so upset. No net or TV for the whole weekend? How would they survive?

Luckily, I always have a book at hand. I started reading ‘BZRK’ by Michael Grant

image

Honestly, this book should come with a warning.

Oh wait, it did…

image

It should come with other warnings like, ‘not for the paranoid’ or even a glossary for those of us who don’t know much about biology or nanotechnology.

I’ll explain why in my review.

So yeah, even without internet I can still have an interesting weekend.

Catching Fire Trailer

Does anyone else thinks that this would a hard movie to watch? I mean, ‘Catching Fire’ was a beautiful, sad and painful read. To see it all brought to life? I don’t know if my heart can take it. I think I’ll be crying my eyes out for most of the movie… V_V
