E. L. James created a predictable storyline but took all the advantage she could get to make it a bestselling series. The manuscript started as a Twilight erotic fan fiction and no doubt great part of it’s success comes from grown up Twilight fans looking for a sexy read. On the other hand, this fact  doesn’t justify or glorifies it’s mistakes, but confirms its success and helps throw out of the window some prejudice t...

  Dead of Winter doesn’t do justice to this author’s talent, delivering a somewhat predictable plot, not enough development but packed with action and moments of shock!   I have to begin this review by saying I’m a huge fan of Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series, and I’ve read them with great excitement. Poison Princess was a win, and Endless night even more (and I read it twice)! I love the sexual tension she’s able to...

  Real, intense, fulfilling. My first impressions were that this would be an unrealistic story with characters falling in love at first sight, blindly. I could’t be more wrong. It’s been a long time since I’ve read such fluid writing . The story moved forward at a good pace without slow points, and I was immersed, laughing, feeling anxious and emotionally connected. The intensity and sexual tension made the sex scenes re...

Different, passionate and sweet! This book was a surprise. One of my friends recommended it and I wasn’t disappointed. This book has a fresh beginning, a bit like “Outlander”, and it kept me interested to read more about the characters. At times I really liked how we got to see different POVs, but by the end I just wanted to know the closure, without interruptions. The kidnapping attempts were repetitive, I believe they weren...

  What can I say to make you love this series as much as I do right now? Maybe a pic will do.. Well, there’s no enough words, you have to see it. It’s amazing how feminine this series can be, there’s attention to detail, an interesting love story, incredible visual and amazing actors. I only read the first book, OUTLANDER, after the fist episode. I’m suspicious to talk about the book because of that, so I’m n...

Is Booklikes The New Goodreads?
New / October 13, 2014

Are you searching for a Goodreads replacement? I’m aware most of you don’t know this free service called Booklikes that might be a good option if you’re tired of GR. Goodreads has became a mess in my opinion, using free reader content to leverage authorial participation (and revenue), deleting reviews and not knowing how to handle trolls and haters. I’ve tried different book related sites, and so far Booklikes...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Uncategorized / October 11, 2014

  Breast Cancer Awareness Month, otherwise known as Pink October, is the perfect opportunity to inform and get us talking about cancer, without fear or prejudice. Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States. Widespread use of screening, along with treatment advances in recent years, have been credited with significant reductions in breast cancer mortality. I’d like to present ...

“So, where have you been?”
Uncategorized / October 1, 2014

What have you guys been up to? I just realized how long it’s been since I last blogged..oh god. So sorry guys! I’ve been totally oblivious to the blogging world, but on the other hand…I’ve missed writing. Read some really nice books lately, but I’m not sure if this is the place to write about them. Maybe you guys prefer reading reviews on Goodreads? Or some other platform that’s better (that I have...
