Worth the Chance  - Vi Keeland

The story started out great, but just as I was getting into it the author started making the characters jealous all the freaking time. And that kind of possessiveness and constant mistrust totally turn me off from the story. I understand if that sort of situation was put once in the story to demonstrate the manliness of the ˝alpha˝ hero (or to show that the woman protagonist isn't meek and will fight for her man), but to have this sort of unhealthy behavior stretched out over almost half of the book is ridiculous.


On the plus side, the sex scenes were really hot ;)


My child, I know you're not a child
But I still see you running wild
Between those flowering trees.
Your sparkling dreams, your silver laugh
Your wishes to the stars above
Are just my memories.

And in your eyes the ocean
And in your eyes the sea
The waters frozen over
With your longing to be free.

Yesterday you'd awoken
To a world incredibly old.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.

You had to kill this child, I know,
To break the arrows and the bow
To shed your skin and change.
The trees are flowering no more
There's blood upon the tiled floor
This place is dark and strange.

I see you standing in the storm
Holding the curse of youth
Each of you with your story
Each of you with your truth.

Some words will never be spoken
Some stories never be told.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.

I didn't say the world was good.
I hoped by now you understood
Why I could never lie.
I didn't promise you a thing.
Don't ask my wintervoice for spring
Just spread you wings and fly.

Though in the hidden garden
Down by the green green lane
The plant of love grows next to
The tree of hate and pain.

So take my tears as a token.
They'll keep you warm in the cold.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.

You've lived too long among us
To leave without a trace
You've lived too short to understand
A thing about this place.

Some of you just sit there smoking
And some are already sold.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.
This is the age you are broken or turned into gold."

19 Quirky Conundrums Only Book Lovers Understand

old book

 OMG!! How come strangers know so much about me?!


via HuffPost:


1. Finding a comfortable reading position is a never-ending quest. Chair or bed? Side or back? In a box? With a fox?

2. On airplanes, you hesitantly flick on the overhead light while everyone else is napping.

3. Paper cuts may look like minor injuries, but the pain can be excruciating.

4. Walking and reading at the same time requires hand-eye coordination only professional athletes have been endowed with.

5. What on earth are you supposed to do with the jacket on a hardcover while you're reading it? Keep it on and risk damaging it? Take it off and store it in a weird nook, never to find it again?

6. Deciding what to read is a choice that presents you with an embarrassment of riches.

7. The typeface and page length of a book can seriously impact your reading experience, sometimes for the worse (sans-serif font is a huge no-no).

8. A book can be composed of the worst drivel you've ever laid eyes on, you're still afflicted with major guilt when you banish it to the "I Will Never Ever Ever Finish This. Like, Ever." shelf.

9. You lament time that you've wasted in the past; all of those hours scouring celebrity Twitters could have been put towards finally reading Moby Dick!


10. Some people count down the minutes until their lunch hour; you count down the minutes until Jeffery Eugenides or Donna Tartt releases their next book (roughly 5 million for Tartt, but who's counting?!)

11. Finishing a book you loved is like saying goodbye to a good friend. You've been through so much together! And while you may see each other again, it won't be quite the same.

12. Forget finding roommates; the most stressful thing about moving is figuring out a way to transport boxes upon boxes of heavy books.


13. You're constantly rethinking your bookshelf strategy. Should you color-coordinate, or take a more practical approach, such as publication date or alphabetization? Or, if you're feeling ambitious, should you tackle the autobiographical bookshelf, à la Rob Gordon from High Fidelity?

14. Your mood is directly impacted by the mood of the book that you're reading; your friends have learned to avoid you during Dostoyevsky months or Bret Easton Ellis weeks.

15. You take found books home like abandoned puppies, chirping, "Can we keep it?!" That'd be well and good if it didn't happen once a day.

16. One does not simply walk by a bookstore. One must poke around, at the very least, and one usually ends up filling one's tote bag with more books than one can carry.

17. "I don't read" is a relationship death knell, akin to "I loathe my mother" or "I enjoy upsetting kittens."

18. You may or may not own two (or three or four) copies of a beloved book. You can't help it, the redesigned covers are irresistible!


19. Laundry day and other important obligations get completely overlooked when you're in the middle of a great, un-put-downable book. "Same shirt Saturday"? Sorry you're not sorry. 



"And in the end, we were all just humans... Drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
"We waste so many days waiting for the weekend. So many nights wanting morning. Our lust for future comfort is the biggest thief of life."

~ Joshua Glenn Clark

Reason to Breathe (Breathing, #1)

Reason to Breathe (Breathing, #1) - Rebecca Donovan Before I started reading this book I already knew that it will end on a cliffhanger. What I didn't know was just how cliffhanger-y the ending will actually be. I'm usually ok with cliffhangers because they make me remember a book and look forward to the sequel- especially if the other book hasn't been published yet.
With this book I am really glad that I read it after the other one came out because I honestly don't know how I would have survived the wait.
I thought that this book was excellent; hence the five star mark. All of the scenes were realistic, the characters were beautifully developed and they actually communicated!!! Evan and Emma didn't pretend to know or read each others minds. I also loved the fact that the setting in this book wasn't a week, or even a month, but a couple of months and that things progressed slowly between Evan and Em (even though at certain points I just wanted to shake both of them and yell at them to be together already).
All scenes of the abuse were described in detail and sometimes I didn't even want to know all the details because it somehow felt more real and I had a feeling I was actually standing there next to them and watching every gruesome scene.
All in all, I wouldn't change a thing about this book and I'm really glad I decided to read it.

p.s. If you liked this book you might also like
Heart On A Chain (I personally don't like the cover for it, but don't let the cover fool you-this is an amazing book).

Leaving Paradise

Leaving Paradise - Simone Elkeles Honestly, I'm disappointed. A lot.
The beginning of the book was great, promising, everything was developing smoothly. The writing style was normal, readable and it was easy following the plot. But then came the scenes in which Caleb and Maggie interact with each other, again the beginning was cute, their chemistry obvious. Then somehow everything fell apart. The dialogue between C an M became strained, their encounters not romantic (or natural, I think natural is the better word)in any way. The main characters reconnected in a surprisingly short amount of time. All was forgiven but not forgotten.
I expected more, much more from Simone Elkeles. I loved the Perfect Chemistry trilogy and this book began on the same note. Except then unlike the Perfect Chemistry the book started losing the rhythm of readable writing (if that makes any sense). It seems as if at some point the author got bored with this book-but she had to keep on writing because of the deal with the publisher-so she just wrote the most obvious things. She didn't even try to camouflage the simply written sentences.
