Book Blitz - Blood Oath by Samantha Coville

Release Date: 04/29/14

Summary from Goodreads:

Raya Sarian has always known she was different. The water calls to her in a way that isn't human. She has seen things that would scar anyone for life. And her father has been non existent in her childhood.

Because he is a Siren.

A blood drinker.

A monster.

And now she must live with him in a world populated with enemies and dangerous friends. Can she survive the year?



It had seemed like a great idea eleven years ago, but, now, with Elder Eden staring him down like he was a disobedient child, Christopher Sarian feared that maybe it wasn’t as brilliant as he had originally thought. Her aqua eyes bore into his and he shifted in his seat, uncomfortable with the situation he had put himself in.

Her voice was silky smooth and strong, even in her old age. It also had a slight hiss to it when she was angered. That hiss seeped through in her words to Christopher. “No one will accept her here; her kind is not welcome by others. You can try to win my approval all you want, but the others will make her miserable. Is that really the best for the child?”

“She will be seventeen, you know.” In comparison to the Elder’s, his voice was small and quiet.

“I do know, Christopher, and I know that her presence would bring unrest to our already shaky colony.” Her wrinkled and dainty hands rested softly on the large oak table that was usually occupied by the Elders of the area. Now it was just her and him and the uneasy air between them.

He cleared his throat a little. He was usually so sure of himself and his power over everyone, but now he was reminded that the Elders would always be the ones in charge no matter who had the crown. But that had its upsides; they were a great source of advice and information. They hadn’t failed him yet. “I haven’t seen her for eleven years, Eden. She’ll be an adult soon and she’ll leave me behind forever. I want to see her, and claim her as my daughter, for one last time before then.”

Eden sighed and took a seat in her usual high back chair. She rubbed her temples in slow circles and then lifted her eyes to the man she had watched grow over the years. When Christopher had been crowned, she had kept a business relationship between them, calling him by his title and expecting the same back. But they were far more than that, they were family though not by blood. “Fine. You are my Lord after all. But if anything goes awry during her time here,” she threatened.

“Everything will go perfectly, I promise.”

She pointed a firm finger at him accusingly, but a faint smile crossed her full lips. “We’ll see about that, young man!”

Release Day Book Blitz - Don't Fall by Rachel Schieffelbein

Don't Fall by Rachel Schieffelbein

Release Date: 2014

Swoon Romance

Summary from Goodreads:

In which a teenage girl endures the over-protective love of her adoptive mother until she falls for a boy who has her wanting to spread her wings, pitched as a contemporary retelling of RAPUNZEL.

Seventeen-year-old Anya leads a very secluded life in a house on the edge of town with her adopted mother. She doesn't go to school, but instead has a private tutor. Her over-protective mom keeps her so sheltered that she doesn't even have a best friend. 

But Anya doesn't seem to mind. She has her books, her photography, and her daydreams, and would do anything to please her mom. Until one day at the library, the only place she's allowed to go, she takes a picture of a beautiful boy.

Before long she's lying to her mom, and sneaking out late at night to meet Zander. But Zander wants more than a secret romance. If Anya wants to be with the boy of her dreams, she will have to risk her relationship with the only other person she's ever cared about.

Guest Post - Retellings

First of all, thank you so much for having me on your blog! I'm going to talk a bit about fairy tales and why I wrote this retelling. 

I have always loved fairy tales. I grew up on them, and I suppose I'm a bit of a romantic. I love magic, and true love, and happily ever afters. It makes me happy that retellings are gaining in popularity. All those old stories I loved are getting a new light shone on them, new twists, new characters, and new perspectives.

Rapunzel has been my favorite fairy tale from long before Disney made its version of it. (Although the Disney version is pretty cute.) To be honest, I think a big part of why it's my favorite has to do with fond memories of visiting an elderly neighbor who used to read it to me. 

It was a story I really wanted to work with, but making it contemporary had its challenges! So I will tell you now, no one climbs anyone's hair. It's the theme of the story I wanted to hold onto. The idea of this girl being locked away from the world, and how she has to set herself free to really find herself. 

I love Anya, my Rapunzel. She's sweet and innocent, but also spunky and fun. I wanted to write her a modern fairy tale, with its own kind of magic, true love, and happily ever after. Hopefully I've succeeded, and readers will fall for her and Zander, too.

About the Author
Rachel grew up in a tiny town in Minnesota. She still lives there, with her husband and their four kids. She coaches high school speech and theater, rides Arabian horses, reads as much as she can, and writes stories.

City of Heavenly Fire Internal Release Celebration - Malec Edition (Day 1)

So today is May 24nd, which means there is exactly 3 days and who knows how may hours and minutes before City Of Heavenly Fire (My most anticipated book of 2014) is released.

On the 4th of April 2014, well over a month ago, I posted my first crackpot theories on the blog with my theories at that point in time. I don't necessarily agree with all of them now and when I look back at it now some seem pretty unlikely to me. However, not to worry, I have a brand new Crackpot Theory. This is part of my three day City Of Heavenly Fire Release Celebration. Today is day 1 and I have decided to have a post on my favorite couple of all time, Malec.

This are my crackpot theories, but they might as well also be my hopes for the books, all this are scenarios that I have imagined and cried over. A lot. over the past two years actually, I get this weird phase every few months where I get all sad and depressed and hopeful when I think of Malec.

With the amount of time that I have in my hands, I have since come up with and reformed new and and old ideas respectively. I will be separating this post into four headings.
  1. If Alec dies...
  2. If Magnus dies...
  3. If Alec & Magnus die...
*The Alec & Magnus die part also includes them surviving and how they die afterwards.
I would recommend that you do not read this until you have read all of Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter books. This will be full of spoilers so if you have not read the mortal instruments at least, please do not read this. Also, there may actually be spoilers for the actual book on the chance I become a book mind reader of some sort. So read at your own risk:)

Other than that, please enjoy my crazy ideas and do comment down below some of YOUR ideas/hopes/theories about City of Heavenly Fire.

And now, let the City of Heavenly Fire Release Celebration BEGIN!

First up, If Alec Dies...

As mentioned, I have actually thought about this topic about Malec dying before because I have phases in the year. For the past one and a half year, I have actually been pretty sure that Alec is going to die because I personally feel there is a higher chance. 

Honestly, I would not have been disappointed by that thought either. I'm not trying to be mean or ruin my OTP but I feel that there would be so much more impact if Alec died. Maybe even before Malec got back together. 

Possibly, and this is something I cry so much about, is the fact that perhaps Alec could be dying and maybe as he lies on the ground alone, he suddenly sees Magnus and the last thing that Alec ever sees is Magnus' beautiful cat eyes, and then he closes his eyes forever. Then, Magnus runs forward and falls to the ground beside Alec and cries something like, "Alec. Alec. Please. Please. Wake up. Please.

Another scenario that I have is that Alec would see Alec in trouble and sacrifice himself for Magnus in whatever way possible, maybe it could be a jump in front of my beloved scenario. It could even be a give up my life energy for my beloved kind of thing. But anyway, Magnus can't help him either because he has no energy left or Magnus just cannot heal him. Magnus and Alec have this sweet talk and at the end, Alec says his last words which include something about Magnus continuing to find happiness and then he dies.

Isn't it FUN thinking about such stuff! I hope your heart hurts as much as mine does too. Not forgetting the fact that I read fluff, then tragic then fluff then tragic fanfiction which makes it 3929047309428402384902849038402 worse than anything. 


If Magnus Dies...

It would tear me apart. 

My favorite character in the whole mortal instruments series. I have this theory of Magnus being the one dying happily of old age which was being teased by Cassie Clare (She only mentioned that someone would die happily of old age). However, this is a theory that I feel can be better discussed in the IF ALEC & MAGNUS DIE part of this blog post. 

So anyways, I don't think Magnus will die. I think this is actually the least likely among all four of the categories. I cannot imagine Magnus dying. I just cannot. I also could not imagine Malec broken up but they are - oh well. I really hope Magnus will not die because then I think there will be much less to write. But if Magnus does die...

I hope that if Magnus dies, it would be like the first Alec scenario where he is on the floor along and dying. And the last thing he hears is Alec calling out for him, last thing he sees is Alec suffering and crying and all... Sigh. This is making me so very sad. Sigh.

If Alec and Magnus Die (somewhat together)...


If both of them die together... Well, I think this is still pretty unlikely but still possible because obviously everything is possible as authors adore stabbing our hearts with knifes and making all that pain come.

There are three cases if Alec and Magnus die. 

One, they die in the COHF during the Sebastian chaos thing. 
 Second, they die after COHF but they don't manage to grow old together. 

The third one is the one I'm hoping for the most. The third one is also what I'm hoping happens in a teaser that Cassie mentioned about how someone would die happily of old age. My theory and hope is that both of them will survive and somehow along the way Magnus loses his immortality of Alec. Afterwards, they manage to grow old together and finally in the epilogue of COHF, we see Magnus talk about his life and then he dies of old age happily because he has lived a fulfilling live with Alec.   think it really could happen and I would really want it to because I love them so much. It would make me so so so happy with it. 


What are some of your theories? Please do share it with me!

Book Review - Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Title: Dorothy Must Die

Series: Dorothy Must Die #1

Author: Danielle Paige

Publication Date: 1st April 2014

Publisher: Harper Collins

Source: Purchased

Audience/Genre: Young Adult

Rating: 4 ☆ Out of 5 ☆

Summary from Goodreads: 

I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero.
But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still the yellow brick road, though—but even that's crumbling.

What happened?
Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas.
I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.
I've been trained to fight.

And I have a mission:
Remove the Tin Woodman's heart.
Steal the Scarecrow's brain.
Take the Lion's courage.

Then and only then—Dorothy must die!


This book is one of those books that I've had my eye on for a really long time. One of my favorite genres of books are actually fairytale-ish retellings and I think this falls under that perfectly. I didn't know what to expect honestly but I really wanted to read it because I loved the summary and everyone was raving about it. And honestly, now I know why that is so. This book is fun and quick-witted and just the right amount of dark and gory and twisted. Just the way I like it.

 Isn't the ARC packaging just so beautiful! I want to own one so badly!

Firstly, my likes. I think Amy is hella kick ass. I usually don't like female main characters a lot. This is honestly just because I find most of them pretty whinny and a little too needy. However, Amy proved me wrong. At first, I had the feeling she would be like them - and she was, a bit here and there. But she grew on me. I understood why there were moments when she was like that. Most importantly, she's in an unfamiliar please OBVIOUSLY you would have your moments. Over time, as the story went along, I felt that Amy truly grew into a much more mature woman. After reading it, she may have became one of my all time favorite book heroines just because her character development was fantastic.

Secondly, I felt that the world was presented brilliantly. I know that this is not Danielle Paige's world. As such you may think that there may not be as much work cut out for her. But there is. Because of the premise of her own plot, she has to change the world in such a way that it becomes hers but still has the beauty of the original world. And that's another reason why I applaud her because let me tell you. When you take a work of art and are required to change it to suitably fit your plot, it is hard. There will be so many people out there who love the original and are just waiting to criticize you for whatever reason as soon as you make the slightest difference in the book. Personally, I have never read the Wizard Of Oz (yes, yes I know), but I feel that the way Danielle Paige wrote it managed to give the original Wizard Of Oz the respect it deserved. So, well done Danielle Paige. This was a really really wonderful work of art of your own.

Thirdly, personally to me, the book's overall plot, characters, and setting all wrap up so nicely and neatly. Everything just fits in here and there. There is adventure, and magic to fill up the book, thus not making it a flat plot. The characters all have a unique personality that makes you even more intrigued about the book because TRUST NO ONE IN OZ. Also, I love how the whole Wicked is Good, Good is Wicked thing and how everything seems to settle into a nice plot with Amy Gumm, kickass witch now, trying to kill Dorothy because I mean read the book title - Dorothy MUST die. Also, it's just so funny watching how everyone is different from who they are supposed to be.

Lastly, I would honestly have given this book a five because the plot, the characters and the setting of the world were all very vividly written by Danielle Paige. The only part that I felt didn't work for me was that I would honestly have loved to see more romance time. I understand that the plot takes priority because it is setting for the next two books. (Yes. It's a trilogy). However, I would have liked it even better if there were more romantic moments instate of random moments in the book. The base of the romance had been set up but not much was build on it. I didn't really feel like there was a relationship there as much as I should have. Also, I would have liked to see more of Nox just because I feel like he could play a more important part in the book. 

Asides from that though, I thoroughly enjoyed Dorothy Must die a great huge deal and it's definitely gonna make a hell of a television series, something I'm really hoping for. Could you imagine the magic and all the weird magical animals and DOROTHY come alive in a live action TV show!

Danielle Paige made a wicked debut. If you’re a fan of Oz, definitely please give Dorothy Must Die a chance. It’s spectacular.

Book Review - We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Title: We Were Liars

Author: E. Lockhart

Publication Date: 13th May 2014

Publisher: Hot Key Books

Source: Purchased

Audience/Genre: Young Adult

Rating: 5 ☆ Out of 5 ☆

Summary from Goodreads: 
We are the Liars.

We are beautiful, privileged and live a life of carefree luxury.

We are cracked and broken.

A story of love and romance.

A tale of tragedy.

Which are lies?

Which is truth?


Let me tell you three lies.
1. This book is horrible.
2. The writing sucks.
3. This book shouldn't be published.

Of course. All are lies.


Do you understand how much I adored this book. Right down to the last full stop of this book. I adored it.


Never have I EVER been so exhausted and satisfied with a book. Ever.


I'm just. Honestly. I can't even.

This book is possibly my favorite book of all time now. There is just so much that I could talk about on this book and there would still be so much good that I couldn't have expressed in words.

Firstly, the plot was what made me love the book the most. At first I was really surprised at how small and compact the book was. I expected a really huge book so I was a little hesitant to pick up the book. However, due to all the hype, I decided I would just give it a try. Why not?

After I read the book though, I was mind blown. I couldn't have imagined that ending at all. Fck. That ending. After you read it, you would understand just how mindblown I am by it. It was such a "brilliantly smart" book as John Green says. That twist just added so much more impact to the book and wrapped it up so well. I had expected something to happen but not that. Who could have expected that?


Secondly, I love how the author purposefully writes in fragments, with the choppy sentences and the occasional lack of punctuation. It just adds so much more meaning into every word. It adds to the effect of the book. Every single word, sentence, page just makes the entire book works. And thus, makes me love it even more.


Thirdly, the Liars. These characters are if I may the best things about the book. I love how every character is there for a purpose. A very significant purpose. I love how just everyone fits together. And just how impactful every character can be.


Lastly, I feel that the publisher did the right thing making everything so mysterious. The cover and the summary are what people usually see first and that just makes it so much for intriguing that I want to, I have to find out about what happens. Everything just makes the book even better. And of course, the mottos. Everyone should have a motto.


My heart literally bleeds for the beauty of this book.


It is so beautiful that I honestly don't know why you have not picked up this book if you have not for any reason at all. E Lockhart is a genius.

For goodness sake. Go read it.

You can refuse to read any other book in the world. but read this book. Please. 

I'm definitely not lying when I say this book is to die for.

Book Review - I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

 Title: I've Got Your Number

Author: Sophie Kinsella

Publication Date: 16th February 2012

Publisher: Bantam Press

Source: Purchased

Audience/Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Rating: 3.5 ☆ Out of 5 ☆
(It was more of a 7.5 stars actually)

Summary from Goodreads: 
I've lost it. :( The only thing in the world I wasn't supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It's been in Magnus's family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I've lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive!! :)

A couple of glasses of bubbly with the girls at a charity do and Poppy's life has gone into meltdown. Not only has she lost her engagement ring, but in the panic that followed, she's lost her phone too. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number with the hotel staff. It was meant to be!

Except the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn't agree. He wants his phone back, and doesn't appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, phone messages and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, can things get any more tangled?

As can be seen from what I've been reading recently, I've been in the contemporary mood. I've actually had this book for quite a while but I just never got around to reading it - something which I'm not sure why.

I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella is a one of a kind finding love when you least expect it kind of book. It was such a fun read and I feel that this book just zoomed by for me. Sophie Kinsella is such a talented writer that I'm just like what... It's over? 

So firstly, the main character Poppy is a real sweetheart, with troubles of course. She is engaged to man named Magnus, who she adores and adores her. Basically his family isn't very thrilled about Magnus marrying Poppy.

The premise of this book is that Poppy loses her engagement ring which is an heirloom from Magnus' family. While she is looking (hunting actually) for the ring, her phone gets stolen and she just happens to find another phone in the garbabe. Now, this is where Sam-who-is-hot-as-hell-and-he-knows-it comes in.

Sam is a businessman who gets all his calls/texts/emails through this phone number, which originally belonged to his PR who dumped the phone and for goodness sake go read the book. Eventually everything leads to Poppy learns important lessons about not needing to be nice to everyone and also judging people, from Sam, to Magnus, to her 'friends' and just everyone around her because not everyone is how they actually are.

I wished there was a sequel because I want to know what happens to Sam and Poppy but I understand that this book is complete as it is.

The only thing I didn't like about this book were that there were moments that the book could be a little flat. Like there wasn't as much adventure in the scenes. Just talking and talking and more talking. However, I understand that this is towards the adult genre instead of a young adult book so it is different.

I would recommend this book to all of Sophie's fans and also everyone out there who want to try out some contemporary. This isn't as mushy and sweet as some other YA ones so it will be more suitable for those who prefer a less YA kind of contemporary romance. So do go buy it, borrow it and basically read it. Sophie Kinsella IS a legend so I'm sure this won't disappoint you either :) (1)

Book Review: To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

Title: To All The Boys I've Loved Before

Series: To All The Boys I've Loved Before #1

Author: Jenny Han

Publication Date: 15th April 2014

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Source: Purchased

Buy It: Amazon, Barnes & Noble

Audience/Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Romance

Rating: 5 ☆ Out of 5 ☆

Summary from Goodreads: 
Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control in this heartfelt novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series.

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them... all at once?

Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren't love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she's written. One for every boy she's ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

Firstly, might I just mention that Jenny Han is one of my favourite contemporary romance authors ever. Also, I originally read the Summer Trilogy about a week before the release of To All The Boys I've Loved Before and I absolutely adored it so I went to purchase To All the Boys I've Loved Before and boy was I not disappointed.
The novel focuses mainly on the life of a teenage girl Lara Jean, who is the middle child in the family and has two sisters, Kitty and Margot, her younger and older sister respectively. Basically, the premise of the story is that she has a hatbox her mother gave her in which she puts all her 'love letters' that she has written to boys she has loved before. However, she has never sent them at all, she just writes them to express herself. One day, the letters accidentally get sent to these boys and Lara Jean has to deal with the consequences of them knowing she used to like them.
I found the entire concept of the letters really sweet and the fact that Lara Jean poured all her emotions on paper rather than telling the boy was pretty bittersweet. On the whole, this book was really just sweet. So so sweet!

I honestly cannot wait for the next book, "P.S. I Still Love You". I need more of Peter! And Josh! And Everyone! Overall I think this is my current favorite contemporary of 2014. I would recommend it to anyone who needs some love in their life, some sweetness, and a feel of first love again.

So go get this book and start reading now! 5 stars all the way! <3

Hey guys! Here's the list of my May TBR.

I'm only hoping to read them because I've got exams this month.
Also, I don't know whether I'm really definitely going to follow this list because I get sidetracked when I buy new books :)

So let's get started!

Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last installment of the Mortal Instruments series!

 2. I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

A couple of glasses of bubbly with the girls at a charity do and Poppy's life has gone into meltdown. Not only has she lost her engagement ring, but in the panic that followed, she's lost her phone too. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers!

With no clues and no way to track Simon Blankenship, Rachel and her friends must sit back and wait for him to make his next move. There’s only one thing wrong with that strategy: Rachel Buchanan does not like to sit back and wait for the action to come to her.

When a mysterious new student arrives at Blackthorn Academy and he’s, shall we say, attractive, there’s a problem. He also seems to know just a little to much about Rachel and her band and their unusual activities. And now Rachel’s head is spinning, because the new guy is sending her all kinds of signals, and he’s making Alex jealous and oh yeah…since Blankenship is always one step ahead of them, it can only mean one thing. One of her friends is a traitor. 

Some days being a reincarnated Goddess is not all it’s cracked up to be.
