where she went

This is a sequel of the book If I Stay review here by Gayle Forman

Spoiler free*

If you read my review, then you know how amazing the first book is, and that I finished it withing hours. And obviously I was actually expecting so much more for this second book. This book is mostly about Adam, about his band, and the chapters go back and forth from past to present. I think it would have been better if it had Mia's POV too. I wanted to hear more about what happened to Mia after the accident. I wanted to know how did she react after waking up, and how did she react about losing her entire family. Unfortunately, it wasn't much of it until the end when Adams meets with Mia again, but still everything happens too fast. To tell you the truth, I didn't like it so much. I am so sorry because I really expected so much more.

by John Green

This is another book that I chose for my readbox, and it is also being made into a movie for next year.  I am amazed by this book!. I have never read a book like this one, it reminds me of my sister's keeper in a way and some other movies. This is funny yet a sad book, the story it's just something that you don't hear very often, and I love this kind of books that are unexpected.

This book is about Hazel a seventeen year old who has terminal cancer for most of her life. Apparently, she has lived more than what she was supposed to.She doesn't go out, she doesn't go to school anymore, basically not a normal teenager life. Her mom wants her to have a "normal" life, and ends up sending her to  a Cancer Support Group where she meets Augustus Waters, and he changes her life around. It is really hard to explain exactly what happens with this book.  It is really fun and sad at the same time, and this book will get your emotions up and down so watch out. I literally cried like a baby almost at the end of the book! Ohh  and let me tell you the ending is really unexpected.  I fully, truly recommend this book and I think it will make a great movie. I really cannot wait to watch it.

if i stay

If I stay by Gayle Forman

Remember my readbox? click here Basically If I stay is one those books that I chose that are coming up as movies next year. Because I chose this book for my readbox it is only fair that I read it right? lol I was actually reading two different books this week one of them is the post before this one or go here Long Way Home  and The fault in our stars (I haven't finish this one) and it is also another one of my readbox selection. I was reading Long Way Home at home on my cellphone, and The Fault in Our Stars at work, but yesterday I forgot this book at home so I started reading if I stay (I hope I didn't confused you) so basically once I started reading if i stay I couldn't stop, thank God it was really slow at work so I finished it in a couple of hours. You see how amazing is to work in a library so when it's not busy get a book and read it. I think this actually talks good about me, because it means that you care for books, and  I utilize the books from my library (that's what I think anyway). Now, back to the book, it is amazing! Mia is a musician, so is her father, bother and her boyfriend Adam. Mia plays the cello, dad and brother the drums, and Adam is the main voice and main guitar from a local band that are finding their way to success. One snowy day Mia and her family go for a drive to see some friends of the family, but they suffer a terrible accident which causes Mia to be dead? or alive? this is something she needs to find out. Mia is out there with no extra powers or anything, but she is able to see everything around her while she lays down in bed at the hospital, with little possibilities of survival. This is book is a really easy read, really interesting, and I wasn't expecting any of what happened at all. I fully recommend the book, if you like it you won't stop reading it, plus it is coming up in a movie and you will already know the story. This is one of the things what I like about reading books, that you get to find out what happens in the movie before people who do not read. Plus, I am really desperate woman and I don't like surprises! so I like to know that I know what's going to happen before everyone else hehe. 

Long Way Home

 Long Way Home by Ann Vaughn

This is the story about Tessa and Shane when they were in kindergarten, and basically Tessa told the little guy that one day they were getting married. Of course a 6 or 7 year old would be scared and wants to get away from her, but in high school they actually end up together. Wait! there is a lot more! Tessa and Shane go on different directions after high school. Shane goes out of town for college and Tessa goes to the army, they do not see each other for some years, until one time that they both ended up back in town for the holidays but they go away once again. Shane and Tessa now being around 28 years or found each other working at the same place for the FBI. They resumed their relationship once again and they end up getting  engaged, but Tessa gets send out to an undercover mission were she suffers a lot of trauma, gets rape and bitten really hard by different people and she blames Shane for not protecting her and there is a lot more to it. Do not think that I have just told you everything there is a lot more! I liked this book because, the story moves so fast, there is a lot going on with their lives and I like that both characters are so strong! That even though a lot of years passed by they still end up together. Another thing, this book is narrated by a third person, so there is a lot more details to the story.

This Man Confessed

Ohh Freaking Ending!! I don't curse but man I want to right now!!!!! What an ending!!!!

Ohh my God, I really have no words right now! I just finished reading this third and last book of the Man series by Jodi Ellen Malpas. I seriously never, never , ever read a book that tortured me like this one. This plot!  I kind of had a clue of what was going on, but the ending really surprised me. Ava and Jesse's relationship goes above and beyond, full of drama until the very end. I just cannot believe how Ava took all of  that! I don't think I'll be able to handle like she did, it was just too much. Like I said before Jesse is full of secrets, women and drama! and all of this is following and torturing Ava. My respects goes to Ava 100% for being a strong woman. This book was the longest out the three and a little quiet at the beginning. They were doing ok, but you know every good book has to have an amazing plot and this one really nailed it. I cannot tell you enough that you have to read this book, really this is a must! Such a great series, really a favorite of mine. I am still shocked!

Fallen too Far

Awee I just finished reading Fallen Too Far! man!! how I love this book, this is definitely one of my favorites, if is not my most favorite book!!! You know this is not the kind of book that you can only read once, this book can be read over and over. Fifty Shades of Grey is also one of those books that you just don't get tired of reading. Even though you know the whole story, you still get excited every time you read it. That's what makes a good book, to an unforgettable book. I actually read Breathe a couple of weeks ago also from Abbi Glines, this book however was more intense! I kept telling Jasmine that this book had some more to it, like more explicit episodes from Jax's part. I also love that book so much, and now even more. I am almost done reading This Man Confessed book # 3 from the Man Series (another of my favorites).

Beneath This Man

This is book # 2 after "This Man" by Jodi Ellen Malpas

Let me tell you this book is insane!! Better than the 1st book, it is just SO amazing!! I am really reading Fifty Shades times 2!! There is a lot going on with Ava and Jesse, lots of drama, lots of fights and way more sex! Really if you were amazed of how many times Mr. Gray and Ana were together, I think this couple are doing double the work! If you read my post for the first book then you know that Jesse owns a Sex House, and there is a lot going on there. A lot of secrets that Ava finds throughout the whole book! I seriously wanted to punch Jesse so many times, I love him, don't get me wrong, but he is seriously a case! There were moments that I wanted Ava to seriously go far away from Jesse!! This is an amazing book, I highly recommended if you like this same kind of books. I will advise though that you are going to get your nerves high up! There are some really good moments, like Ava asking Jesse for his age throughout the book, specially the part where Ava finds out how old he really is. I love this second book a lot! You will love Jesse even though he is a big arse!

* Remember when I described Ava and I said that she was size 10, well I wasn't thinking that they are from the UK so the US size is 6. I was really thinking she was a bit chunky like me ^-^

Readbox and New Movies Info!!

Hello there! I just wanted to post this project that I did for my job, because it is book related :)

I love pinterest! I think it is an amazing app, where you can find A LOT of different ideas from clothing outfits to makeup etc.. I also like to do crafts!!! As you might know my husband and I, we're both librarians so one day we were looking for fun book displays to do at the library (we work in different towns btw). I found this cool "readbox" display which basically is like a "redbox" (where you can rent DVDs) but this one is for books, that's why is call "read" box get it???? lol. All right so I thought it was going to be fun and easy to do, so I asked my boss the main head librarian if I could do it, and she agreed right away!!! so this what I am talking about....

I chose books that are coming up in movies next year. Some of them like the Lorax and Catching Fire came out already, but I wanted to throw them in there :) I got a mix of children, non fiction,  YA and Fiction as well. The movie Horns by Joe Hill came out and has been shown in Canada only, but it has not  been release in the US yet. The main character is been played by Daniel Radcliffe best known as the lovely Harry Potter.

This Man


Wow!!! This book is intense! I really felt like as if I was reading Fifty Shades, but a different story. The author Jodi Ellen Malpas writes really similar to E. L. James, really!! so you must imagine what kind of book this is!!! Well  Jodi is also British but she uses it a little more of the English slang, (I guess) I didn't understand some of the words, but thanks to the technology of eBooks, I just highlighted the word and got the definition :D
"This Man" is about Ava (an interior designer) and Jesse a super mega rich, hot, over protected, charming, confident, conceited man!!! he has everything!!!! but on the bad side (if you see it like this) he owns a freaking sex house!! which brings a lot of problems to their "relationship". Ava  has her own things too, she is a size 10 but really confident as well, she is a amazing interior designer and has worked with powerful people such as Jesse. She knows that Jesse is trouble and wants to get away, but he is really, really intense and do not want to let Ava go!! 

I love the book!! this is the first  of three books and I'm already reading # 2 "Beneath This Man". One thing though this book is really long! 2, 200 something pages on an eBook! I don't remember how many for the "Fifty Shades" but it is worth it!! so worth it!!
