The Hunger Games Trilogy – Review

Author: Suzanne Collins

Well it took me about 5 to 6 years to read them but here I am, and I am done with all of them, I think I broke my own personal record with this one, I read all three books in two weeks give or take. Maybe you are saying that is not fast but between work and life, it is fast.

I really did not have any intention of reading them anytime soon but for some reason, re watching The Hunger Games movies made me want to read, I picked them up and started with the first line that I already knew, and then got past it, the weird first person narrative. And then I couldn’t stop, I knew the whole story but it was an easy read, and it was good to read something as if for the second time, since I really like the movies I didn’t know how I would feel with the books.

I cannot really say which I like best, so I will leave it at: they are both good.

Outlander Series (Voyager + Drums of Autumn)

Diana Gabaldon

I should probably start off with Voyager, and I will try to look pass the things that I did not enjoy.

I read it fast and not just because it was the first book in this series where I already knew what would happen, but because I read as fast as I could over the parts where Claire was on her own.

Spoilers ahead if you have not read these 2 books, so kindly stop if you have not read.

Lord of Shadows Review

I will first give you, the unedited review, this is what I felt and thought when I first finished the book. Be wary, it contains so many spoilers you will have to jump to the end of it if you do not want to know what happens at the end of the book. You have been warned.

Outlander & Dragonfly in Amber “Review”

Author: Diana Gabaldon

Where to start? I like them enough, but I had already watched the first 2 season of the series, and I must say they are pretty similar to the books, I could easily picture Sam Heugham and Caitriona Balfe while reading, although Jamie is much taller in the books.

Brianna and Roger on the other hand, are nothing like in the books, sorry for the actor and actress who portray them, but they did not work for me, one bit.

Seven Years to Sin (Review… sort of)

Sylvia Day

Well, if you are into romance and historical, and as a plus adult fiction than you most definitely will absolutely love what goes down with Lady Jessica and the rather rakish Mr. Alistair Caulfield

Alright, let me honest with this one… Sylvia Day has an excellent imagination and the few books I have read of her have been really great, she does has a lot of books under her name and reading them all in less than a month would be viable… if only the to-read list with many amazing authors and promising titles was not as long as it is.

Special Edition: About Shadowhunters TV Cast…

I simply have to do this… Because if I don’t, then I might explode… We love The Immortal Instruments and we (fans) are hoping for the TV Series to begin in 2016, and while we do that…. Nothing, there is only this ‘at the edge of your seat’ feeling that won’t go away. The have casted some good actors, I might not agree with All of their choices but I am determined to give them all the benefit of the doubt, well there is one with whom I don’t have to do that because I am certain he’ll be great. If you haven’t read the books, I shall remind you to do so immediately because I am not holding back here…

Cast…

Katherine McNamara and Alberto Rosende will be our star and her childhood friend (I’m sorry is that spoiler? Don’t think so everyone should have read the books by now, at least one); Dominic Sherwood (Benefit of the doubt), Emeraude Toubia (BOTD), and Matthew Daddario will be portraying our lovely group of young Shadowhunters siblings (Again… this is for the fans). And Harry Shum Jr. (The one I look forward to…) will be portraying, bringing to life, making us think that a hot warlock from Brooklyn is possible, Harry as Magnus Bane, which I admit make me very happy in case you didn’t notice, I have high hopes for Harry I think he will be awesome…

Q & A with Shannon Thompson

Author of Take Me Tomorrow

Special Edition of Books Everywhere (EachPage) Blog

Hello, everyone. Today I bring to you a special post with a Q&A about Take Me Tomorrow and plus some interesting details about its author, awesome Shannon Thompson, who was nice enough to respond to my ramblings about the book, which if you haven’t read please go here and found out more, or read the review I made couple of days ago, right here. If you haven’t read the book, I strongly recommend that you do not read the upcoming lines because it may contain some spoiler. That’s it, let us start.

Q&A Take Me Tomorrow

  • I am sure you’ve been asked this but, is there going to be a sequel?

Author: There is a sequel – Take Me Yesterday – as well as a third novel – Take Me Now – written, but neither have guaranteed contracts to be published. Sharing the novel around by reviewing it helps out a lot!

  • Tell me, what inspired you to write about Take Me Tomorrow?

Author: Long story short, my mother was a drug addict, and she died from her addiction when I was eleven years old. Through coping, I spent a lot of time researching about drugs, drug use, drug abuse, and more. Take Me Tomorrow was born. If you want the long story, I wrote more about this on my website: Why I Write About Immigration, Drugs, and Addiction

I encourage you to visit the link and learn more.

  • How you came up with the name ‘Noah’, did it just pop in your head or is there a special meaning?

Author: Noah does, in fact, have a special meaning, and it would be explained in the sequel. But here’s a BIG hint: it has to do with this quote from Take Me Tomorrow, I was wrong about him. He hadn’t grown into the forest. He had come out of the water.

  • A main thing about the Drug, did Noah really prevent Sophie from dying?

Author: Take Me Yesterday, the sequel, would explain that, but for now, it is a mystery. That being said, yes, she should’ve died and didn’t. The question of “why” was left open-ended.

  • The effects or rather the events foresighted with Tomo can be stopped? Or is it just Sophie?

Author: Eek. I love these guesses, and I wish I could say more so badly, but you are onto something!

  • Are all of these questions going to be answered on a sequel? And hence you won’t really tell me much?

Author: All of the questions above will be answered in Take Me Yesterday. The sequel also adds some depth about the history of all of the characters – including Lyn and Broden and even Noah. While Take Me Tomorrow is focused on what the future will be like, Take Me Yesterday is quite the opposite. You will also get to leave the Topeka Region. But I promise there’s a plan. As Noah says, “I have a plan, you know. I’ve always had a plan.”

  • How was the world before the massacre? There are bits and pieces in the book but how was it truly?
