T5W- Books I’ve Read in One Sitting

It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This weeks theme is Top 5 Books I’ve Read in One Sitting. Because this is something that happens quite often I needed to reduce my list a little bit but I made (with a little bit of cheating included, like always). Let’s start this list.

5. A Walk to Remember – Nicholas Sparks

A Walk to Remember

I know that a lot of people don’t share the same opinion as me but I love Nicholas Sparks and I don’t have problems in saying that. I’ve read all of his books and this one is still one of my favorites. I read it in on afternoon. But want a recommendation? Don’t try to watch the movie right after you finish the book. It’s not a good idea. Believe me, I know it.

4. My Heart and Other Black Holes – Jasmine Warga

My Heart and Other Black Holes

This one of my favorite books I’ve read this year so far and I just couldn’t leave it. When I started it I knew I would be reading it until the end in that day.

3. Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door – Stephanie Perkins

anna and lola

Funny story, I’ve read these books in one weekend. Yep, that happened. I started Anna and the French Kiss on saturday afternoon and finished it. After that I decided to read  Lola and the Boy Next Door on sunday afternoon. I just had to read them without stopping.

2. ConfessHopelessLosing Hope and Slammed – Colleen Hoover

colleen hoover

Normally when I start a book by Colleen Hoover there is a big probability of finish it on that day. Actually on that night. That happened with these four books and with all of them someone stayed up reading until 4/5 am. It just happens. I just need to read them in one sitting because I need to know how everything ends and what happens.

1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower -Stephen Chbosky

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I’ve read this book at least two times and I always read it in one sitting. When I start this book I just can’t leave it in the middle and I have to read everything. This book is just amazing.

This is it, the top 5 books I’ve read in one sitting. Tell me, which books have you included in your tops? Have you included any of these books?

The Coffee Book Tag

coffee book tag

Hi! I’m back today with another book tag. I wanted to write a review today but someone is in a reading slump and that’s something that doesn’t help when you want to write reviews. But let’s forget about that. Today I’m answering to the Coffee Book Tag that was created by BangadyBangz from booktube. So let’s start it.

1. BlackName a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

The Selection

Probably The Selection by Kiera Cass. It’s not that I don’t like the books but it took me a long time to get into the story and most of the times America annoys me. I think that’s one of the reasons why I haven’t read The One yet.

2. Peppermint mocha: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.

Harry Potter

These books are already pretty popular but the true is that everyone reads or re-reads Harry Potter in the winter. I understand. I started reading it last winter. It’s something that almost everyone does.

3. Hot chocolate: What is your favorite children’s book?

Narnia

Probably The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. The ones that I’ve read so far are amazing (But let’s just forget that I never read them when I was a kid. It’s something that started only 1/2 years ago =P).

4. Double shot of espresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

Well, that happens with a lot of books but I think that most recently that happened with Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. That book is a rollercoaster from the beginning to the end.

5. Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere.

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)

There is a book series that everyone talks and that’s everywhere I go and that books are Fifty Shades of Grey. It’s everywhere and it was worse when the movie was released. And the worst part: just because you love to read people assume that you’ve read it even thought you didn’t. And now everyone talks about the new book that is going to be released.

6. That hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an indie author a shoutout.

True Calling (True Calling #1)

The True Calling trilogy by Siobhan Davis. The first two books are out and I had the opportunity to read them. They are amazing. You can read reviews for True Calling and Beyond Reach here and here.

7. Oops! I accidentally got decaf: Name a book you were expecting more from.

Gone Girl

I have to say Gone Girl. I have heard amazing thing about this book but it was a big let down for me. I think that Dark Places is better than Gone Girl but everyone talks about the last one and I don’t understand why.

8. The perfect blendName a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.

infernal devices usa original

Let’s be real. You didn’t think that I would answer a tag and not talk about Cassandra Clare, right? Because I always talk about Cassandra Clare. The Infernal Devices is one of the best series that I ever read and while reading I went through a mix of feelings. These books have everything and the ending is just amazing. And let me tell which series is the runner-up. Obviously The Mortal Instruments. Cassandra Clare is a genius and her books are incredible.

These are my answers. But before I end this post I’m tagging:

Warisha at Warisha Reads

Panda at Panda’s Books

Saba and Hafsa at BookMates

Trey at Trey Schnarr Books

Analee at Book Snacks

And I also tag everyone who wants to answer to this tag. If you do it just tell me in the comments so I can see your answers.

A Big THANK YOU…

Hi guys,

Today I’m here to thank you for all the support I’ve been receiving for the last two and a half months. And why am I doing this you ask. First because about a week ago this happened:

1000views

1000 views? I wasn’t expecting this to happen not even in 5 years. Thank you so much to come here and care enough to read what I write. Another thing that happened. THIS:

100followers

If anyone tried to tell me that this would happen when I started this blog I would not believe it. I started this blog because I had too much free time and it was something that I wanted to do for a long time. This was one of the best decisions I made and it’s all because I have amazing followers =). Thank you so much for all the support. I will try to keep doing the best job possible in this blog and I hope you keep liking it.

Day and Night Book Tag

dayandnight

Hi guys,

Today I bring you another tag. I haven’t done one of this for a few weeks so I decided to do one today. The tag I’m going to answer today is The Day and Night Book Tag. This tag was created by Readigans and I was tagged by the lovely Warisha at WarishaReads to do it. So let’s start it.

D: Do you read more in the morning or at night?
Normally I prefer to read during the night right before I go to bed.

A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. I still don’t agree with the theme of the book but while I was reading it I was rooting for the main characters. It’s just that this book is so difficult.

Y: YA or not?
YA… It’s not that I don’t read other genres but I prefer YA.

A: Are there any characters you honestly believe to be real?
For me all the characters are real both in the authors and the readers minds and that’s enough for me.

N: Nobody borrows my books or I don’t mind lending them out?
Sometimes I lend my books but I regret my decision as soon as I do it… I just can’t say no when someone asks me for a book.

D: Do you ever smell your books?
Is this really a question? Every time I buy books and every time I start reading one

N: Not everyone likes books, is this a positive or a negative?
I think that everyone has the right to like or not like different things but reading is so important and I really need someone to talk about books with me.

I: I keep my books in the best condition or maybe not? Which are you?
I try to keep them in the best condition but unfortunately sometimes they get a little bit damaged when they are at my purse

G: Gosh I have too many books! True or False?
False… Too many books is something that doesn’t exist to me. It’s impossible to have too many books.

H: Have you ever spilled or stained your books before with something, and if so how?
Oh yeah… I did it. The last time was about one year ago when I was reading Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen. Let’s just say that some chocolate milk ended up in my book (when I say some chocolate milk I’m talking about the whole glass).

T: Toned or untoned while reading? . . or in other words. . .Do you read and workout at the same time?
Nope. First I started working out 1 month ago so it’s something really recent. And then I can’t have books in my hands when I’m working out.

So this is it, the Day and Night Book Tag. I will tag anyone who wants to do it. If you do it just tell me in the comments. =)

T5W – Books with Multiple POVs

It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This weeks theme is Top 5 Books with Multiple POVs. This was a difficult choice for me because I couldn’t remind books with more than two POVs but I managed to get some. Let’s start this list.

5. The Casual Vacancy – J.K. Rowling

I know that a lot of people didn’t like this book but I think that it was a pretty good book. And this book has POV for a lot of the characters which was helpful to understand the book a little bit better.

4. The Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer

I’m not even starting to explain why I love these books so much. I just do. I really like how we have POVs for the main characters and how with each book released we have at least one more POV for a new character.

3. The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern

This is one of my favorite books ever. I’ve read it about 3 years ago and I just loved it. I really think that the different POVs helped in the story telling.

2. Throne of Glass Series – Sarah J. Maas

OK. I’ve only read the first book but I’m pretty sure that I will love the remaining books. Once again a really well written book where the different POVs helped to the development of the plot.

1. The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices – Cassandra Clare

Let’s be real. It wouldn’t be a T5W if I didn’t cheat a little bit. As always my number one pick is Cassandra Clare’s series. These are some of my favourite series and I had to include them. I could have included only one of the series but I just couldn’t choose one.

Multiple POVs

This is it, my top 5 books with multiple POVs. Tell me, which books have you included in your tops?

Beyond Reach (True Calling #2) by Siobhan Davis – Review (SPOILERS)

Publication Date:

April 30th 2015

Publisher:

Independent

Goodreads Synopsis: 

SOME SECRETS ARE WORTH FIGHTING FOR

Back on Earth, Ariana is caught in a dangerous crossfire between clandestine rebel organization Clementia and the power-hungry government. Refusing to divulge the location of the secret information entrusted to her by her late father, she desperately tries to bargain for her Mom, Lily, and Cal’s rescue. She’s fighting a losing battle, and the clock is ticking.

Presented with evidence of her fiancé Cal’s apparent betrayal, she loyally defends him despite her concerns. With her emotions in turmoil, matters become even more complicated as she grows closer to her ex-boyfriend Zane.

When the stakes are raised, a succession of shocking revelations rocks her world, setting her on a path that will not only change her destiny but the fate of humanity.

Confronted by a memory so abhorrent comes a truth she would do anything to forget.

But some things just can’t be undone.

Review:

First I would like to thank Siobhan Davis and NetGalley for giving me an ARC of this book for an honest review.

I have to say to you… I liked True Calling but this one was even better. This book starts where True Calling finished and with Ariana back to earth without her family and without Cal. Throughout the book you can see her development as a character and her struggle about who she should trust and how she feels about Cal and Zane. So yeah, it was great to see her growth in this book. However, there were sometimes that I wanted to scream at her for some bad decisions. If you read my True Calling you might know that I didn’t trust Cal but meanwhile I’ve read the novella Lovestruck and I actually thought that I was wrong and I was happy about that. But then I’ve read this book and I wasn’t totally wrong about not trusting Cal. He did some stupid things but I now understand why he did it. And then there’s Zane. I love his bond with Ariana and how we can see how much he loves her with his actions. Also, after the cliffhanger that this book had I’m really excited to see the story is going take Ariana, Zane and Cal and I’m mostly excited to know what Ariana remembered. I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be a big part of the next book. Another thing is that there is so much happening in this book that there isn’t a boring part in this book because there is always something that happens that changes the direction of the story and I really liked it. My only problem with that was that sometimes it was a little bit rushed but overall I was really happy with this book. There were moments that I couldn’t leave my book because something would happen and I needed to know what was coming next. I’m talking to you Chapter 11 last sentence… I was thinking that this thing could happen but I really thought that I was wrong so that wasn’t expected at all.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I’m really excited to see how it’s going to end. The plot was amazing and the author’s writing was pretty good. I actually think that Siobhan Davis writing improved in this book. If you like this type of books and if you like to be surprised read this book.
