Lack of posts. Again.

Guys, I'm sorry! Things are crazy here, with my tutoring classes and my tests, so I don't have enough time to post any review. I'll try to fix it until the end of this week! I promise!

Thanks for your patience! :D

My Book Boyfriend (7)

Well, the blog can't stop, even if my cute design isn't here because of photobucket maintence. I'm going to do a backup when I get my images back. My Book Boyfriend is hosted by The Unread Reader, in which we show to our readers, characters that we're drooling for! This week, I'll talk about my love of the week:

  • Books that he's in: All the books in Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R Ward
  • Appearance: 
  • As I think about him, I picture his face and the scar that intersects it. I see his glossy all-black eyes. His skull trimmed hair. His pierced nipples. The tattooed blood slave bands around his throat and wrists... I can almost feel the anger and the erotic threat he throws off... God, it’s as if he’s known hell on earth and carries the place around with him.
  • Zsadist is the most scarier brother.
  • He was a blood slave.
  • He's Phury's twin brother.
  • He's mated with Bella
  • He has a little daughter, named Nalla.  
  • Why he's my book Boyfriend?  Well, he can be scary, but he's a sweet guy deep inside. When he's isn't fighting of course. And he's a great alpha male! hohoho Ok, I've to stop to swoon over the Brotherhood.
  • Who is my perfect Zsadist: Wentworth Miller. He's just like Z! Of course without the scars or the pierced nipples... XD
  • Scene that made me swoon:
What a flipping nightmare. Technically the Brotherhood should be running his ass out of town. Instead Z was looking to mate into the guy's family. God, did Bella even know what her brother was? And not just the drug-dealer part…
Z glanced at her.Probably not , his instincts told him. On both accounts.
"Rehvenge, this is… Zsadist," she said.
Z looked at the male again. The pair of deep purples staring back at him were unwavering, but beneath the calm there was a flicker of the same kind of holy hell that Z was feeling.Man … exactly how was all this going to play out?
"Rehv?" Bella murmured. "Um… Zsadist?"
The Reverend smiled coolly. "So, are you going to mate my sister now that you've knocked her up? Or is this just a social call?"
The two females let out gasps, and Zsadist felt his eyes flash black. As he pointedly drew Bella to his side, he itched to bare his fangs. He was going to do his best not to embarrass anyone, but if flyboy with the mouth peeled off any more one-liners like that, Z was going to drag Bella's brother outside and beat an apology out of him for upsetting the ladies.
He was damn proud of himself when he only hissed a little. "Yeah, I am going to mate her. You drop the tough act, civilian, and we might invite you to the ceremony. Otherwise you're off the list."
The Reverend's eyes flared. But then he abruptly laughed. "Easy, there, brother. Just want to make sure my sister is taken care of."
The male put his hand out. Zsadist met the big palm halfway.
"That's brother-in-law, to you. And she will be, don't you worry about that."

So who's your book boyfriend this week? :)

P.S: Yeah, next week we won't have a Brother in MMB. I've to stop with them XDDD

Lack of posts

Hey guys!

Sorry for not posting anything for almost 2 weeks, but I got a week filled with tests, and I didn't have much time to log in the blog and write something decent. I hope that until the end of the month I can put some reviews and memes up, to apologize for a time without nothing here XD

Sorry again! >_<'

Review: Bright Young Things (Bright Young Things #1) by Anna Godbersen

Bright Young Things (Bright Young Things, #1)The year is 1929. New York is ruled by the Bright Young Things: flappers and socialites seeking thrills and chasing dreams in the anything-goes era of the Roaring Twenties.
Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey escaped their small Midwestern town for New York's glittering metropolis. All Letty wants is to see her name in lights, but she quickly discovers Manhattan is filled with pretty girls who will do anything to be a star…
Cordelia is searching for the father she's never known, a man as infamous for his wild parties as he is for his shadowy schemes. Overnight, she enters a world more thrilling and glamorous than she ever could have imagined—and more dangerous. It's a life anyone would kill for . . . and someone will.
The only person Cordelia can trust is Astrid Donal, a flapper who seems to have it all: money, looks, and the love of Cordelia's brother, Charlie. But Astrid's perfect veneer hides a score of family secrets.
Across the vast lawns of Long Island, in the illicit speakeasies of Manhattan, and on the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls' fortunes will rise and fall—together and apart. From the New York Times bestselling author of The Luxe comes an epic new series set in the dizzying last summer of the Jazz Age. (From Goodreads)
I never read The Luxe series, what I still regret until today, because the story seems to be amazing (and I read some spoilers on Amazon) and the covers are gorgeous, so when I got Bright Young Things on my hands, I couldn't wait to start. And the worst day was when it was over. 
On the first pages the prologue already say to us, how to story is going to finish: Some are going to be happy. Some are going to be sad. And some are going to be dead.
The story starts with Cordelia and Letty, two country girls on the day of Cordelia's unplanned wedding. They don't want to live in that small town of the whole lives, doing the same things every day. They want to go to the big city, to achieve their own dreams. Cordelia wants to find the father that she never knew, because of the dead of her mother and Letty wants to be a super star, just like her mother could be, if she didn't give up on everything to marry her father. They plan to run away, even if that means to leave Cordelia's recent husband behind. And they do. On the night train, they go to London to never look back.
Beautiful Days (Bright Young Things, #2)In the book we now about Cordelia, Letty and Astrid's fears, days and most important: boys. Everything is around boys, but like in the other books of Anna Godbersen, we don't know since the the first moment who is going to end up with who, because we have many plot twists, so we always have new surprises along the way. And of course, it's impossible don't identify with some characters along the way. You feel that could be you in their skins and doing the same things that they are doing. I'm excited for the second book of this series that is going to be released in September 20th and it's going to be called Beautiful Days. So to end this review, I'll show you a little piece of the prologue:

I can t remember very many now—although there are three, from that last incandescent summer, whom I resist forgetting. They were all marching toward their own secret fates, and long before the next decade
rolled around, each would escape in her own way—one would be famous, one would be married, and one would be dead.
That is what I want to tell you about: the girls with their short skirts and bright eyes and big-city dreams.
The girls of 1929.
So, in you do you bet? Who is going to be married? Who is going to be famous? And who is going to be dead?

In the end, I give to this book:

I LOVED this book!
