Make Mine a Bad Boy by Katie Lane Book Review

Make Mine a Bad Boy (A Deep in the Heart of Texas novel)
They all said that Hope Marie Scroggs, the town's sweetheart, always gets what she wanted but ever since she left her small town Bramble, nothing in her life went right. She left town to be famous and be a star but it didn't happen the way she wanted it. She decided to go home and marry her high school sweetheart, the town's hero, Slate but she found him head over heels in love with her twin sister.


 She thought that was the worst thing that could happen to her but she was dead wrong! The worst came when her childhood nemesis, her best friend’s older brother, the town's bad boy, Colt Lomax came home.


 Colt Lomax didn't even know why he suddenly went back to his hated little town, Bramble. He was supposed to deliver a motorcycle to Austin but he found himself in the old town. He stumbled to Faith and Slate’s wedding and kissed the bride whom at that time he thought was Hope. And what he got was bruises from the g…

Fifty Shades of Grey-E.L. James BLOG TOUR Book Giveaway

Fifty Shades of Grey


Well, all I can say is the readers of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ will not be disappointed at all. This is the first of three. E.L James is a new author with a lot of potential.
The ever innocent Anastasia never imagined she’d fall for the very rich and very mysterious Christian Grey. Ana, who never had any relationship nor had ever been in love with a man before caught the interest of the gorgeous and insanely rich Christian Grey. But can Ana accept and give the very different and very dark needs Christian has?

This fiction is insanely hot! While reading this, you’ll just feel yourself rapidly melting. What I liked most about this one is that even though it’s an adult themed fiction, the author did not sacrifice the depth of the story. It sustained the plot. Some erotica have the tendency to focus on the intimate scenes and forget the plot but I’m glad that the author made it possible for her book to have the hot scenes with real emotions. E.L James succeeded in balanci…

Ascension (Guardians of Acension 1) by Caris Roane Book Review

Image
Ascension (Guardians of Ascension)

Well, this is the first Caris Roane I’ve read. I liked it. As I’ve always said, the first book of a starting boo series is the most critical one because the author needs to entice the readers to read the next one.
In this paranormal romance, Earth is divided to the Mortal Earth and the Second Earth. The Mortal Earth is the place where the normal humans live. They have no idea that there is a different dimension called the Second Earth. 
The Second Earth is the second dimension where the vampires live. Third and Fourth Earth was also mentioned in the book but nobody knows what is in there because no one has ascended into it yet.
Alison, the heroine in the story, is a therapist who has powerful abilities that made her different. She has always felt different and an outsider from her family because she’s not normal. She envies her sister who can have a normal life and a normal family. The last man she let in her life ended up in the hospital because she’s t…

Breaking Dawn Part One Official Trailer

Image
It might be a surprise to post this trailer in here but I felt that this one deserves its own space on my blog!
I love Twilight, ever since I saw the first movie and then I read all the books. Although, I was disappointed that Stephenie Meyer did not continue on writing Twilight from Edward Cullen's point of view, I still loved it.

And I also love Robsten! I know some might not agree with me but I don't really care. For me, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are the celebrities who gives a lot of passion in their craft. They give it the importance it deserves and they don't try to be perfect in front of the cameras for the sake of fame. And what I love most of all is that they don't sell their relationship or whatever it is they have in front of the cameras just to gain publicity.

I'm really excited to see this movie!
So tell me, what book turned into movie are you excited to see?

Forever Family Friday (3)

Image
This a new MEME that is started by E&K Family Book Review This new Meme will give the book bloggers a chance to get to know each other. It is called 'Forever Family Friday'. Each week KW will post a question for us to answer and through this we'll get to know a little bit of  each other.

The question of the week is:
What was the book that sparked your love of reading? How old were you?
My Answer:
I know my answer might be cheesy to some but the first book I've ever read was Peter Pan. I was still in elementary back then, maybe 9 years old. But the book that sparked my love for reading was 'The Magic of the Glits' by C.S. Adler. I loved that book! After reading Peter Pan, I went to the library and search the old dusty books in there and I found that little treasure. I'll never forget that book. It touched my young and innocent heart.
After that, I just loved reading books. I felt like I can't live without it!
How about you? Want to share the first book that…
