Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Publicado por Lina Jiménez en 6:00 2 comentarios

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Brooke
Author: Veronica Tossi
Series: Under the Never Sky #2.5
Pages: 88
Date Published: November 26th 2013

Publisher: Harper Collins
Set just before the events of Into the Still Blue, the conclusion to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece" Under the Never Sky trilogy (Examiner.com), this breathtaking novella is a satisfying stand-alone for new readers as well as an exciting glimpse at favorite characters from the trilogy. Pulsing with romance and danger, Brooke will leave readers desperate for the conclusion to this epic and unforgettable saga.

The only fight she can't win is the one for Perry's heart. Following the stunning climax in Through the Ever Night, the Tides have been forced to seek shelter from the Aether storms in a dismal, secluded cave. But Brooke's memories of the cave go back much further, to when she and Perry used to come here together. That was before Perry fell in love with Aria and before Vale's dealings with the Dwellers altered the course of the Tides forever.

Now, with her sister back from a haunting year in captivity and Aria lying unconscious in the sick bay, Brooke struggles to put the pieces of her life back together. Without Perry, who is she? And what is her role in this frightening new world? As these questions swirl about her, an old threat to the Tides resurfaces, and Brooke is forced to put the lives of her people before her own. But in taking this step outside of herself, Brooke may finally discover what she truly wants.

Anything by Veronica Rossi is worth the wait, and Brooke has always seemed like a very complex character.

Super Six Sunday (4)

Publicado por Lina Jiménez en 10:00 1 comentarios

Super Six Sunday is an original bookish meme created from Bewitched Bookworms and inspired by “Top Ten Tuesday” from The Broke and The Bookish .

This weeks feature is our favorite supernatural creatures.

1) Unicorns

Ever since my parent's read The last Unicorn these creatures have been my all time favorite supernatural creatures.


Dragons make any story better.

As the title of my blog hints I have a soft spot for these little creatures because Pixie has been my nickname since I'm six.


I blame the Disney movie for this one.

5) Griffin
I just love how these creatures look on coat of arms. 


Oncen again I blame Disney for this one.

Tent City by Kelly Van Hull Review

Publicado por Lina Jiménez en 10:11 0 comentarios
Title: Tent City 
Author: Kelly Van Hull 
Series: Tent City #1
Pages: 266
Date Published: March 27th 2013

After a devastating plague, introverted 17-year-old Dani Campbell and her family find themselves living in a very different America, one run by a cult-like leader, who forces children to move to "safety camps" designed to protect the human race. Encouraged to flee by her parents, Dani and her five-year-old brother seek refuge in the Black Hills of South Dakota. On the run with danger around every corner, Dani must fight to ensure their survival in this new world while trying to unmask the mystery of how it all came to be.

**I received this book in exchange for an honest review**

This is one of those books that you to read not knowing what to expect of it and after finishing it you  just can't  help thinking, where have you been my whole life?

The story start in a US that is falling apart after a plague of biblical proportions the new goverment decides all the young people are to be sent to "safety" camps 17 year old Dani Campbell's parents ask her to take her little Brody to the family cabin so they won't be separated, Dani agrees to the plan but asks to take her best friend Kit. After some problems they arrive to the cabins only to realize that they are now converted to a refuge for young adults called Tent City and the fight for survival begins.

The Good

-The character growth especially Kit and Dani. At the beginning Dani was just a girl that got thrown into the wild but with time she noticed that she had to step up her game so she went and got help and learned how to defend herself and others. As for Kit at first she was a typical teenage girl and didn't seem to take the situatuion seriously but once she got to Tent City I felt like she had matured very much.

-The whole idea of Tent City was very original and very well executed.

-Bentley. He is hands down my favorite character, the way he ran Tent City with responsability but he never was cruel. I don't know what it is about him but I hope he wins Dani's heart in the end.

The Bad

-I wish we knew more about the General and the camps. They seemed so interesting.

- For a smart girl Dani could be very clueless at times, especially when it came to Bentley's feelings for her.
