The reason I've been absent from blogging is because I'm working AND going to school. But also because this past monday I've been dealing with some personal stuff that took a real toll on my focusing on books, let alone read required stuff for the blog. I miss you all and reading amazing books. But hopefully, I'll be back next week refreshed.

On a side note here is a sneak peak at what I'm doing Thursday - Sunday. Don't click the link if horror movies scare you! Pure Terror Scream Park

*(10/1/12) Update: I might be gone longer due to finding out more information from my personal life that just turned it upside down yesterday afternoon. I wish it was a different outcome with all my heart, but with these unforeseen circumstances, my blogging is being put on hold for all of next week and possible the week after that.

The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her.

Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust...and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life. - Goodreads

The story of a young girl set 20-21 years from now in the future after a plague, riding on the hopes for a better life, is a little orphan annie meets I Am Legend.

Eve has been sheltered her entire life, away from all the males of the world and only a distant memory or her mother when everything was ending. Her need to survive is tested by nature and its elements, but mostly by one boy who proves to her that what she learned isn't 100% correct.

The protagonist is sort of a meek girl in the beginning. She has never seen water outside of a faucet/shower, let alone been outside the walls of her school. The girl is forced to make a choice when she discovers the truth about what really happens after they graduate. This is where the real story begins for Eve, out in New America, located on the west coast.

When Eve meets Caleb, it changes everything. She learns how to swim and how to use a weapon. She learns what love is beyond the love of a parent. It takes time, but Caleb is her saving grace in all of this hellish world. Some would think he holds her back, but I believe he helps her push forward for a better tomorrow for all the children in peril. As for Arden, the girl who went to school with Eve, she pushes Eve's buttons in ways that wakes her up and forces her to make choices. Some of which are life altering. This character is truly stone cold outside exterior, while when you get to the heart of her, is really just a sad little girl who feels all alone. Eve is the only one so far to break through to her.

As for the darker side of the story, the character Lief is a prime example of what I despise in men: ruthless, misogynist, assaulting, teenage boy. He didn't like nor understood women, let alone tried to rape Eve after a night of drinking. Situations like that are scary and do happen to women, 90% know their attacker. So to add that realism to the book is a wake-up call for the heroine. Another set of characters I do not enjoy was the King and all the soldiers that roamed the land. The king alone was a pain in my bum! He had such devilish ideas for the women and in how to rebuild society. People like that tend to be dripping with power and abuse it in horrid ways that makes your skin crawl!

Anyway, it was interesting to read about the scenery that was presented in the story. The way San Francisco looked to the Golden Gate Bridge, was eery in many ways. It was as though you could drop a pin and hear it a mile away from the absolute quiet that swept the city.

Overall, I enjoyed this book a lot. I'm very excited to read the sequel Once and see what happens to the lovely Eve and her beloved Caleb as they overcome their biggest hurdles yet.

A weekly meme by Ginger of GReads!, but until further notice you can find it over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands. In the meme I'll talk about music and showcase it here each week. And this week, I'm going to talk about... epic movie scores!
Oh you know those scene where the hair on the back of your neck stands at attention or where your heart strings are tugged at or your can't look away from a glorious battle scene that has you at the edge of your seat. Those scores that are masterfully put to those scenes, is what I'm talking about!

So a few of those great scores were from my childhood, some of which are Disney related. And as for the rest are from movies within the last 10 years. The first one on my list is called "Remember" from the Lion King. It's from the scene where Simba is out in the African planes and Rafiki gets him to remember his father, Mufasa, and what it meant to be a king of the land. Such a great piece that was scored for the movie!

So what are your most memorable scores of a movie? Was it a movie from your childhood? Was it something you saw within the last 5 years? Share below your story in the comment section.
Oh I found out about this tumblr from Radiant Shadows and I simple adore this blog! It's called the GoodReads Confessions.

So I'm here to share a few that have either rang true or are mind boggling. So if you have some confessions of yourself from GR and want to stay anonymous, but also have a Tumblr account, go on over and maybe submit a few to share to the world.

There is a great legend of the guardian angel who traveled across time and space for the human girl he loved, slaying those who would threaten her with a gleaming sword made of heavenly light.

This is not that story.

Jerome Hancock is Heidi Devine's guardian angel. Sort of. He's more of an angel trainee, in heaven's soul-rehabilitation program for wayward teens. And he's just about to get kicked out for having too many absences and for violating too many of the Ten Commandments for the Dead.

Heidi, meanwhile, is a high school junior who dreams of being an artist, but has been drafted onto her basketball team because she's taller than many a grown man. For as long as she can remember, she's heard a voice in her head - one that sings Lynyrd Skynyrd, offers up bad advice, and yet is company during those hours she feels most alone.

When the unthinkable happens, these two lost souls must figure out where they went wrong and whether they can make things right before Heidi's time is up and her soul is lost forever.

Martha Brockenbrough's debut novel is hilarious, heartbreaking, and hopeful, with a sense of humor that's wicked as hell, and writing that's just heavenly. - Goodreads

Devine Intervention is different in that not all that is good can be seen, at first. The two main characters, Heidi and Jerome, are an odd-couple pairing. Jerome breaks the rules, while Heidi obeys them 24/7. There was also something real in the characters portrayal and heartfelt at times, more so from Heidi's end.

From the insane moments of Jerome not thinking before speaking/doing to the scared nonsenses from Heidi, it was a true revelation from the characters as they grew up. They finally understood by the end what life means to them, why humanity is important, and why love can conquer.

I enjoyed the scenes where Jerome took Heidi all over town and explored it from his side of things. She was able to smell delicious treats and people watch like never before. However, I thought it was crazy how Jerome just kept talking in her head for over 15 years of her life!

The novel did some lagging a little bit. But by chapter 21 all the way to the end, it improved volumes. The way it played out was fantastic and had a really great twist at the end.

Overall, this book wasn't one of my favorite books, but it wasn't horrible either. I did enjoy a good ⅓ of it. Some books are not for everyone, but some are worth a read at least once. And this is one of those novels. So if you get the chance, give this one a shot just once. Then make the decision afterwards. And I would recommend this to teens and young adults, more so than adults.
"DreamWorks has picked up the movie rights to Leigh Bardugo’s bestseller Shadow and Bone, about an orphan girl whose ability to harness a rare magic makes her one of her nation’s most coveted warriors.

Holly Bario, DreamWorks’ president of production, will announce the acquisition later today, and although every studio would like to grab a fresh YA book series in the hope that it can be turned into the next Harry Potter-style film franchise, not every film has the actual producer of the Potter movies overseeing it.
Shadow and Bone would be the exception.

David Heyman, who in the late ’90s had the wise instinct to secure the film rights to J.K. Rowling’s wizard-verse, will produce Shadow and Bone, along with Jeffrey Clifford (Up in the Air), who is president of his Heymaker Films.

The book, which debuted in June, is set in a fantasy version of Russia called Ravka, which is bisected by a territory called the Shadow Fold, brimming with a breed of flying fiends who feast on human flesh. The leadership of Ravka studies children to find those who can wield the power of the elements — fire, wind, water — or can mystically heal, then recruits these powerful young ones into the elite monster-fighting squad known as The Grisha, while all others are conscripted into brutal life in the regular army.

Alina Starkov is one of the latter — a seeming nobody who serves as a mere cartographer until her best friend, Mal, is wounded in an attack, triggering her latent ability to harness the power of light. Not many others in Ravka can do that, and Alina becomes both a prize and a target due to her rare abilities.

It’s not clear yet who would direct the project, or adapt the screenplay, and since the deal just closed there’s not yet a firm timeline for getting the film into production and out into theaters.

Shadow and Bone is the first installment in Bardugo’s planned “Grisha Trilogy,” so DreamWorks could have a whole series on its hands if the film finds an audience.

Bardugo’s next book in the series will be called Siege and Storm, with a planned release date of June 2013, while an as-yet-untitled third installment is due out in summer 2014." - EW

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, is an ever twisting road of acid-tripping moments that keep you on the edge of your seat. From the insane hallucinations to the mystery surrounding all the deaths, it leaves a hangover for the reader, but in a good way (I know contradiction since hangovers a a beast! lol)

This is just one of those books that I do believe lived up to the hype. Not everyone would agree, but for myself it did. Not many books can impress nor leave me thinking the way this novel did. I can see this not only being a movie series, but more importantly would rather see this be made into a television series if the rights were ever bought for the book.

Anyway... Noah and Mara have this bizarre chemistry together. From the moment they lock eyes across the quad till the last chapter, you know they belong together; even if you think other wise throughout reading it. I don't know why but there seems to be a trend lately in the books I'm reading of the boys are all broody. And as it was said on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "he's all Mr. Billowy-coat, king of pain," something of which Noah easily brings to the table when it comes to his past. The one thing Mara keeps on trying to figure out. Luckily but the end she understand a lot about him and why they are drawn together. It's also very dangerous for them to be together. Something of which I won't reveal, but it's an important aspect in the story.

Now for the insanity that swept the book: Jude. That character really has a pivotal role throughout Mara's journey. Everywhere she goes, when her mind starts to slip, he will almost likely be there. The strange part? He's dead! But at the end something is revealed, BIG spoiler that I won't spill, but it changes everything about Jude, in a creepy way. Something that is sure to be explained in the sequel.

Now there were passages in the book that caught my attention. Not sure if Hodkin was trying to make certain references, but I felt that on page 17, the black crows were foreshadowing the many deaths in Mara's future. This reference has been used in other pop culture situations (i.e. - One Tree Hill's pilot episode. Lucas tells Haley that it's a murder of crows.)

Overall, TUMD (aka - The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer), left me feeling baffled by the cliffhanger and desperate for the next installment of Mara's world. This isn't for everyone, but it's worth a go at least once, especially with Halloween just around the corner.

A weekly meme by Ginger of GReads!, but until further notice you can find it over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands. In the meme I'll talk about music and showcase it here each week. And this week, I'm going to talk about... Television Theme Songs!
I love music, especially when the music department of a television show picks an amazing number to set the tone of the season or even the entire show (if it makes it past it's first year of course.)

Now there are some that just stick with you. Whether it was from your childhood or from this past spring, some songs are just awesome. A few examples of that are:

"I Don't Wanna to Be" - Gavin DeGraw (One Tree Hill)
"We Used To Be Friends" - The Dandy Warhols (Veronica Mars)
"I'll Be There For You" - The Rembrandts (FRIENDS)
"Here with Me" - Dido (Roswell)

Now onto the ones that made the cut on my list. Some of which may not have actually lyrics, but are certainly memorable in their own why by their fan base. A chunk of these are either from the 80's and early 90's. But there is at least one from this past decade.

So readers, what television theme song(s) are your favorite(s)? Which ones can't you get enough of? Share your's below in the comment section of this post! Happy reading everyone!

Sweet Evil is a truly twitter-patted roller coaster of a ride, not just with the way Anna feels, but the emotions she sees in humans around her everyday. The journey alone for her in for the thirst to have questions answered is intoxicating.

The level of disturbing graphic detail is maddening to the scene of the characters at their age was like witnessing those movie moments (i.e. - Saw). All you needed was jigsaw and it would have been a gruesome situation by the end of the story.

I commend Anna with her vibrant integrity to say "no" at certain points. Not many teens can get up that kind of courage, but I found such a reflection of myself at her age, that it made me root for her even more. She is also truly confused at best, but as she grows up, I feel she'll know more in what she needs to keep fighting the insanity of the dark side in her bloodline.

Kaidan at best, is her weakness and ultimately is her strength; a double edge sword. He is a contradiction as well. He plays on Anna's desires, tries to lure her in, yet at the same time tries to push her away. He does however warn her from the start, but that doesn't last long by the time they get towards the end of the novel. I've got high hopes for him the sequel and intrigued by how things will play out between him and the choices he makes in regards to the second to last chapter of the book.

Patti was as typical, if not a little overbearing, of a mother. I do like that they kept a few of the southern hospitality traditions, like offering a beverage/sweet tea to guests. She also was really relaxed about Anna's father coming in and teaching her the ways of his life: drugs, alcohol, and excessive use.

The culture is important to add to the story, it's a character within itself. So major points to Higgins for not missing that part.

I've enjoyed the chaos that comes from Anna meeting her father, Belial, and knowing the other Nep. children, and the training she endures to prove herself. Seeing her with Kopano was thrilling and a good change to the story. Knowing he was different than the other Nep's was nice. Let alone when she meets the others in New York. Now that was quit a scene being played out! The cruel jokes and forcing choices on the Nep's like it was everyday stuff, just seemed inhuman to none other than humans, but to them, was part of their lifestyle. It was most certainly one of those worlds I would never ever want to be apart of for those reasons and more. But it was fun to venture into for reading fun.

I love the scene when they are in New Mexico and exploring the little rest stop area. You got to see another side to Kaidan with Anna.

One fact about the book I loved is that Higgins was found on the site Figment (originally was from Inkpop, but they closed down and moved everything to Figment.) If you wish to see more about her Figment page, head on over here to see it! Anyway, on a side note this should encourage other reader/bloggers out there to maybe start writing and publishing their work over at the website. Maybe someday they can get the chance just like Wendy Higgins and Katie McGarry.

Anyway, back to the book.... I'm also dying to know how the story continues with Anna and Kaidan. It left it with such an interesting, yet simple way, that you can't help but crave more. Overall, I've really enjoyed it! Not many straight up paranormal romance books hook me, but Sweet Evil most certainly was worth every page.

While the world waits on sneak peaks and exclusive content to drop about the film around the net, I'm here to deliver some fan made film posters. Also one exclusive picture of cool wigs that are going to be used in the movie!

Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.

It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.

In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship. - Amazon

When the first novel left off, Amy and Elder were faced with questions, new unknown struggles, and uncertaintly to when Godspeed will reach its final destination.

A handful of questions from Across the Universe are answered, while new ones popped up for the readers. But for myself, the biggest questions was about the next set of challenges beyond Godspeed.


From Orion's cryptic messages to the truth about the stand still of the ship, it was any wonder if hope existed for everyone aboard. So much was at stake and obstacles kept getting thrown in Elders way. Riots, death, murder, mayhem... it was the hidden themes for the book. And it works.

I was thrilled by the progression of the story. By chapter 53, I felt twitter-patted and couldn't put the book down. The tory ended on a cliffhanger that left me dying to know the next part of the journey for the two main characters. Revis had not only sucked me into the world, she made me want to be apart of this adventure that exists only in the world of Doctor Who or some other Sci-Fi media.

And speaking of Sci-Fi, all those mysterious deaths with the black patches was truly genuis in a mad man way. Love will make people do some pretty crazy stuff! Especially more so when trapped on a space ship.

Anyway, now let me dive into the parts of the book that fascinated the reader in me...

There were some considerablly wonderful literature references placed through the novel. I was intrigued by how it was all used and the puzzle that was laid out before Amy and Elder.

"Abandon all hope." - Dante's Inferno
"Follow me down the rabbit hole." - Alice in Wonderland

These two quotes alone represent something bigger, almost foreshadowing the coming events to play out in the last half of the book. Dante's Inferno is a dark look into humanity and more. So seeing those exact words already tells of how disturbed everyone will become on the ship before the end. Then Alice in Wonderland points to how both characters may not know everything about the Godspeed and that they may in fact have to follow the trail to the truth or just like Alice herself, follow the white rabbit to wonderland and explore beyond her wildest imagination.

I also was thrilled about the mystery behind the motives of each antagonist; whether they were part of the big picture or not. From the start of the riots to the peculiar realization of their "library", no stone was unturned; except at the end (another cliffhanger!).

And lastly, each fantasy bubble that was popped to make room for reality, truly helped keep the novel at a great pace that surely surpassed the first novel. 

Anyway... onto something fun. Now for those that are curious about maybe the year Amy was born in Across the Universe, I did some math from the dates that were in both books. Found out that she would have been born in 2005. This puts Amy in the beginning of her world in the year 2022 at the age of 17.  And currently in 2012 she would only be seven years old! Amazing, huh?

I would most certainly recommend this book if you read the first in the series. It answers a lot of questions, but leaves you with more in place of the ones that are answered.

A weekly meme by Ginger of GReads!, but until further notice you can find it over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands. In the meme I'll talk about music and showcase it here each week. And this week, I'm going to talk about... Glastonbury 2011!
So with DishNetwork they give out free viewings of certain channels each month. So for the month of August we got the Palladia channel which is all music concerts and more 24/7! So with this I was able to see some amazing performances of world renowned bands/artists playing live. From Coldplay, Mumford & Sons, The Gaslight Anthem, Jimmy Eat World, U2, Paul Simon, B.B. King, OK Go, and so much more.

If there is ever a concert to attend or watch on the tv/computer, this is one of the many not to miss! They have been doing it for years and the 2005 concert was awesome! They had almost everyone that was big in 2004/2005, which included The Kills, The Whie Stripes and so on. Below are some videos from the 2011 concert, enjoy readers and music lovers of the world!

So after reading a posting from Radiant Shadows blog on a post by the blog by The Perpetual Page Turner who saw it on the blog of Jess Lively, I decided to jump on the wagon as well. The main reason being, it's different. You have to be willing to be kind of vulnerable and real some truths.

So I'm going to confess 11 truths about me and what really goes on behind my computer screen in the real world....

My Eleven Confessions

1. I tend to not really read reviews on books I haven't read yet. I don't like finding out beforehand because then I tend to not read the book. Same thing with seeing a movie before reading a book. So its hard for me to read all book reviews.

2. I speed read most reviews. Especially if they are long-winded and don't really explain what the reader thought of the book in the first two paragraphs. If it stretches down past the side bars I tend to skip the review.

3. Pretty blogs. I'm like a moth to a flame when I see a creatively elegant blog. Also can't stand the ones that are very disorganized, no matter how pretty it is, it's a HUGE turn off. Mostly cause it confuses the heck out of me when I try to navigate around it. Keep it simple and original folks.

4. Reading every single "it" book. I haven't and I probably won't because I've got so many books to begin with that I own. Some I will due to having the sequels and not the first in the series. One to name would be Divergent. Haven't read but I will cause I have Insurgent. I just don't have the money to buy the book yet.

5. Writing Reviews. I'm good at that, but sometimes I just want to bang my head against a wall. Even with the ones that I loved, sometimes I can't even think of one sentence to wrap it up in a pretty bow to tell the world. After taking my 101 and 102 English classes last year, it taught me a few things about writing, but still after all that I tend to get bogged down by how to simple describe certain moments. The thesaurus is my best friend lol

6. I get bummed when some people get to read a book I've been dying to get my hands on for more than 6 months. For instance Everbound. I've been wanting to read that since I finished Everneath back in January. Now I'm seeing it around the book blogging world and I'm a smudge bit jealous to be honest. I typically don't get green eyed over stuff. But this kind of got me a little. Then again it's also hard to get a copy of something that is in hot demand by the reviewers. So I try to stay positive and look on the bright side of things instead.

7. I have a pet peeve about not staying on top of release dates. I hate when I miss them and more so put pressure on myself to get it done. This just drives me crazy cause I see so many people able to do just that and think, "I'm a capable human being going to college, why can't I just roll it out?"... I just have to keep telling myself not everyone is super human.

8. I have A.D.D. people. Oh that pesky thing that causes my mind to go a little off course every now and then. I was diagnosed as a child and now at the age of 25, I've found my niche on how to handle it and stick to as close of a routine as possible. But the down side? I need books to keep my attention from beginning to end. If they don't I tend to take forever reading them. The more variety and fresh a story is, the more I'm drawn in. Also when I'm not on my medication, I tend to not really read as much because I have to re-read all the time. My mind wonders during reading and then I just give up and go do something else. Hence why I feel the pressure to put out reviews sometimes.

9. Twitter. I've been using twitter since 2008, have another handle that I use to use, so twitter isn't foreign in to me. I just don't really use it as much as I should. I know it's a great way to build a good following, but I find it time consuming and a big distraction in general. I just have it for blogging due to contests and that all the other book bloggers have one.

10. Just like Jamie, I do not read everyday. I've got a life outside of blogging and not just school. On top of that my computer crashed back on May 15th, so I'm catching up on my HULU and Netflix queued stuff. I wish I could read everyday, but I also don't always have the urge to do that.

11. I don't do giveaways. Mostly cause I can't afford it. I would love to save up oodles of money and give something away but I also see it as a way for people to get numerous followers who may never read the blog. And I don't want that. I want people who truly enjoy what I've written.

There is so much more that is on the list, but I don't want to bother posting an hour long reading bit to everyone that comes here. Hopefully i won't piss anyone off or cause drama over here.

And with that, if you have any confessions you would like to make about your own blogging experiences and more, post them below! I would love to read about 'em!
