Blog Tour: Santa Muerte (TDS#1) by Lucinda Stone

Lucina Stone blends Mexican folklore with modern technology and time travel in this seductive new series where the lines between right and wrong, protagonist and antagonist, truth and fiction, love and lust, and life and death have never been more blurred. 

THE YEAR IS 2030. IN A DRAMATIC, final attempt to free her inner demons, twenty-year-old Daniela Delgado tempts fate and winds up on a strange farm in 1923. With an olive complexion due to her Mexican/Italian heritage and a fresh pixie cut, she is mistaken for a “boy of color.” Her only shot at survival now is to play it cool, pose as “Danny,” and figure out how to get back home to her two, loving moms. 

And then she meets Daphne—an abused, motherless farm girl in desperate need of freedom and a friend. Having escaped Daphne’s father, the two of them are now roaming the streets of New York City disguised as a young aristocrat and her male servant. They’re running out of money, and ideas. And Daniela thought living in 2030 was tough. 

But her solar powered smart phone works. And there’s someone within range. She pings them. A selfie of an attractive male comes in with the text: I’m Lain. Who the f--- are you? Even in that moment, Daniela knows this can’t be safe, but what are her choices? They meet Lain at a speakeasy on the Lower East Side. When Daniela reveals her last name, Lain says the only Delgado he knows is Anaya—the head of the Santa Muerte Coven of witches in Merida, Mexico. And then he hints that Daniela is a liar, even though she rocks a man’s three-piece suit like no woman he’s ever met. And as for her tattoos? Don’t get Lain started…. 

Despite the intrigue, Daniela adds Lain to the list of folks Daphne and she must outrun to stay alive. But as they plan their trip to Mexico, they soon discover that list is much longer than they thought. And they uncover a few other things, too, about Daniela’s true identity….

Alice and the Fly by James Rice Book Review

A spellbinding debut novel by an exceptional new young British talent.

This is a book about phobias and obsessions, isolation and dark corners. It's about families, friendships, and carefully preserved secrets. But above everything else it's about love. Finding love - in any of its forms - and nurturing it.

Miss Hayes has a new theory. She thinks my condition's caused by some traumatic incident from my past I keep deep-rooted in my mind. As soon as I come clean I'll flood out all these tears and it'll all be ok and I won't be scared of Them anymore. The truth is I can't think of any single traumatic childhood incident to tell her. I mean, there are plenty of bad memories - Herb's death, or the time I bit the hole in my tongue, or Finners Island, out on the boat with Sarah - but none of these are what caused the phobia. I've always had it. It's Them. I'm just scared of Them. It's that simple

I was provided and ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review.
Something worse than the Disappearing  Parents Syndrome is the fact that the parents don't actually care about the child.
I haven't experienced this type of parents(thank god) however, I do know that there are parents like this out there, especially parents with children who have been diagnosed with something. I don't know the first thing about mental illness, however it always sparks a curiosity. Because I don't know the first thing about it, I can't say if the portrayal of Schizophrenia in this book was accurate.

At the end of the book there are a series of questions regarding the story for group studies. One of the questions is whether the transcripts along the book makes you question the reliability of Greg as the voice of the story. For me, it doesn't. It does clarify the doubt that there IS something fishy about him, it does tell us at one point his disease ( which was diagnosed, but treated as attention seeking) but it doesn't really affect anything, except, that I paid way more attention to the details that Greg gave  the double meaning and subtle things that could be perceived.

I could see Greg so clearly in my head. He would be a person that stood out SOOO much, or would just go reaaaally unnoticed. It really does feel awful to read how Greg is bullied through words. He's one of those persons that could be dying and would say he's fine just to stop people from worrying so much (which is funny because he was shot with a nail gun and kept saying he was ok) I can't even describe him. In some ways sometimes he was just so funny, the way he views the world.

Now, his obsession with Alice is a little bit like he explains on the final chapter. There's the Alice he writes to, and the Alice he sees on the bus. He never really knows anything about her, he is just fixated on her. She's la visual anchor, utilizing her mentally to keep down the fears. Which is something that really weird me out,  can't seem to remember how is that his fear came to be.

I enjoyed the writing, sometimes, it did get very repetitive,  but I do think that's because,  well... Greg is working on his thoughts, and that was usually during very stressful situations.

Overall it was a great book, with a different character than I'm (personally) used to. The parents are muy issue... but that's part of Greg's life. Although, this book does leave you with a WTF?! feeling in regards to how you felt for them.

The Girl in 6E (DM #1) by A.R Torre

I haven't touched a human in three years. That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet.

I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention.

They get satisfaction, I get a distraction. Their secret desires are nothing compared to why I hide... my lust for blood, my love of death.

Taking their money is easy. Keeping all these secrets... one is bound to escape.

What if you hid yourself away because all you could think of was killing? And what if one girl's life depending on you venturing into society?

Enter a world of lies, thrills, fears, and all desires, in this original thriller from A. R. Torre.

Oh man, I really thought this book was going to be perfect, it wasn't.  But it was still really fun. SHE WENT TO THE BATHROOM YOU GUYS!!! And I think this is the first book I've read in which a character has gone to the bathroom,  WIPED THEMSELVES, and pulled up their pants.

I learned quite a few things about being a Cam girl, sooo,  thanks for that. It's really interesting seeing all these different men with different fetishes come to her in look for pleasure. If you are looking for the 'erotica ' part, move on folks, cause it ain't happening. If you're looking for the 'dark' part, movies on as well because quite frankly this book doesn't really evoke anything from you, except giggles.

I don't really understand why she decided to go looking for Annie?? She has a bunch of mean a day and literally goes looking for a child she doesn't even know??? That so happens to lead to her final second murder, the one which so happens to quench her thirst for blood???? And why is she obsessed with killing??? How does she control it??? 

That ending tho... WHAT THE ACTUAL HECK?!?!?! that's one of the most unrealistic endings I've ever seen, it looked like the author was tired and just wanted to wrap up nicely and move on to the next book. 

She couldn't even touch Jeremy but suddenly goes all hard core on Ralph???? What is going ooon? It was definitely interesting my friends, just not really great.....

Girl Sent Away by Lynne Griffin Book Review

Toby Sedgwick is terrified by his daughter's increasingly reckless behavior and takes a tough love approach, enrolling Ava in Mount Hope, a wilderness behavioral camp for troubled teens. Ava quickly realizes that the camp is little more than a prison, warehousing and abusing kids for their parents' money. And after spending a disturbing weekend completing the parent portion of treatment, Toby knows it too.

As Ava desperately searches for a way out of Mount Hope, she is faced with resurfacing memories of a family tragedy - she can no longer suppress the pain of what happened to her mother and sister eight years earlier in Thailand. As father and daughter fight to get back to each other, the truth may irrevocably tear them apart.

Sometimes you shouldn't expect so much from a book... but you still do... it's sad

I was expecting a book about a girl struggling as she remembered how her mother and sister died, a memory long blocked, now coming in flashbacks triggered by a single random thought. How her wreck of a father send her to a camp, how she was abused and how she sees people being abused, her father and her bonding in this horrible situation and so on.

This book just barely skims over their relationship, they never got to actually sit down and address the issue, but rather each one resolved their problems separately. What kind of father just goes to a random website, reads the About page and decides to send her daughter there, without previously having a tour around, or a meeting with the Director of the camp, nothing.

I couldn't sympathize with Ava, she is selfish and stupid, like father like daughter. What set me off on this book, is how she can barely love her father, yet as soon as James appear, she has some extra love lying around and randomly ends up with him at the end. I wanted the book to focus on father/daughter broken relationship and how they learn to trust each other again.

I just feel really frustrated with this book and how the issue was handled. 

 Honestly, from the synopsis I thought what was going at the camp was much worse, I mean what they do is bad, but I was just expecting a BOOM in this book that never came

A Freakishly Friday #1: Show Me Some Love

Hello people, today I'm going to present you guys to a new series of post I'll be doing. This consist of any topic I want from discussions to lists. All of this especially posted on Friday because well... Double F(It's so funny) today I'll be talking about how we treat books. This post was inspired by one of my favorite Spanish booktubers Lucia Lorena , she talked in her newest video about how she just highlighted one of her favorite books, she used to use post it and was a fierce believer that you should never write, highlight, or anything else in regard to books. Just love them and keep them safe and sound. I feel this way as well, just like a bunch of other bibliophiles who fiercely believe this.+

As humans we are attracted and constantly change our opinions and liking based not only in our beliefs but people's opinion as well, whether we want it or not, or admit it or not. Being part of such an enormous community like the book community, we have many types of people with different opinions and way to handle things. So such things as the care of our books, the central god of our community we are entitled to the way in which we want to treat them. How we want to channel our love for them, through highlighting them, caressing them, or whatever other thing you do to show love to them.

I can't tolerate when a book is being handled horribly(in my own judgement) and neither can a bunch of other people. Writing on them, although I hate it, many other people enjoy to express their thoughts on a certain paragraph or sentence. I don't like it, I can put a post it on it, or highlight it even(haven't done it yet, doesn't feel necessary just yet) but I can't write on the actual page, but other people don't care. I can't say they're handling the book wrong, because it's their book, which they bought with their money and read and enjoy. That's how they love their books, and it's not my business to judge what they do or don't do with their book.

In other cases, that's not the case, but rather the condition in which the book is. Hasn't it happened to you that you are drinking some hot chocolate, or steamy coffee, or perhaps some refreshing cold drink and suddenly some of it spills and you just sigh so hard and curse and then continue on with your life? Or maybe you're eating? and crumbs fall and your mom looks at you like you just dropped a baby? Well, sometimes that happens when you're reading a book... in the pages... or in the paperback cover? and you just SIGH REALLY HARD and curse and continue on with your life a little bit mad? Or you are reading a book and suddenly you sneeze... and saliva ENDS UP IN THE PAGE... calm down...Maybe, you are putting the book somewhere... and then.. one of the corners of the cover bend goddamnit! it's stressful, but it just happened and as much as you try to unbend it, or scrub and clean it, it stays there to haunt you 

Sadly, that's a little something called life, it's annoying, but it'll never go. You can look at it and bawl your eyes out at how stupid you were, or you can look at it... and feel shitty and laugh at how stupid you were. Even if you hate it, it's the story of the book, and how it has lived it's life.

Our books are ours we buy them with our money and we're the ones that get to decide how we're going to love it, even though some others might disagree with it and look at you like you just killed their firstborn.

How do you love your books?

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover Book Review

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

Miles is a total douchebag that only cares about himself. I understand what he went trough it is a very traumatic experience, however he knew from the beginning that he was falling, falling, falling for her. His POV was always so dramatic and the format was ugly. Like, was that supposed to be poetry? she just centered the text and repeated words.

Tate is so unveliably stupid beyond comprehension, she turns the right cheek as soon as he hurts her over and over again and she knows that, yet she still does it. She was so funny throughout 20% of the book and then, after briefly disliking him, instantly feels an attraction toward him.

The sex was so boring I just read trough it very quickly because honestly it was always the same, and constant.

The end was pretty stupid and rushed. Meh

Honestly my favorite character was Cap, he was the best.

I hate when my MC is weak and stupid, like, gurrrl what the heck kinda shitty attitude you have? You're being stepped on, and you are smiling all the way through accepting everything he throws your way. There's no excuse for what he does, I'm sorry your life is shitty. STOP treating people like shit and get your shit together.

I was beyond excited read boook from Queen CoHo but I hate this book, so I don't know if I'll try anything else by her due to this disappointment.

Prince's Gambit (CP#2) by C.S Pacat Book Review

The second novel in the critically acclaimed trilogy from global phenomenon C. S. Pacat—with an all-new chapter exclusive to the print edition. 

With their countries on the brink of war, Damen and his new master, Prince Laurent, must exchange the intrigues of the palace for the sweeping might of the battlefield as they travel to the border to avert a lethal plot.

Forced to hide his identity, Damen finds himself increasingly drawn to the dangerous, charismatic Laurent. But as the fledgling trust between the two men deepens, the truth of secrets from both their pasts is poised to deal them the crowning death blow…

Y'all I can't even deal with this BS.

I love these characters, they are amazing (f*cked up) and I just... THEY KISSED!!!! AND THEY HAD SEX!!!!
I was giggling throughout the whole thing, and like ugly crying, because, HOLY SHIT, like, FINALLY. It's just so cute because y'all, Damen acutally bents Laurent over in the tent .

In this book we get the war side of the story, their journey throughout the book is filled with obstacles calculated meticulously by Laurent's SOAB uncle.

This book definitely showers us with a lot more of Laurent's personality, how witty and extremely intelligent he is, and how he could outsmart his uncle. Yet, in his and Damen's relationship you can definitely see how vulnerable he is, so far as to be a pleaser, as Damen said(I think in the 19th CH extension)

Can I point out how HARD I laughed at this book? Like, there were times where I was laughing at things that had me thinking, am I that heartless?

Y'all they're like my fav OTP
Ans can we TALK about that ending?! Like?!?! So that review will come laaaater because Panama sucks when it comes to books. And shipping costs... A lot...


Captive Prince:Volume One(CP#1) by C.S Pacat Book Review

"This was Vere, voluptuous and decadent, country of honeyed poison"

Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the truthful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.

Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master Prince Laurent epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.

For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else...

I LOVED IT!!! At first I thought this book was going to be heavily centered around sex between the main characters, I mean LOOK at that title.
It WASN'T, and I'm glad, it really took on a great political view. The world building wasn't big, but it did throughout the story presented us with the culture of Vere(or at least their 'pets')

They were such different 3D characters that were easily recognized. I do love that even though they were natual enemies Damen was still down to f*ck with Laurent.

I was REALLY surprised when they don't even kiss in this book, but I was satisfied with that. How Laurent, even though he had a slave(and could take about anyone to bed) didn't do it(unlike his uncle)and was just REALLY reserved. He IS SUCH AN ASSHOLE, a sadist. Yet I still really liked him. And Damen.

I'm not going to lie, I cringed exceptionally hard at the rape scenes, but hey, is part of the story... Wao

I DID NOT expect that... Plot twist? I guess? I actually thought the uncle was worried about his well being, but NOOO

No topic is off limits as The Chief breaks down high school for students and parents discussing such topics as bullying, prom, and the dreaded group project. Refreshingly unique and accessible, Five High School Dialogues is the perfect all-inclusive guide to high school.

I was provided an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review

This type of books aren't my usual cup of tea. I prefer stories(FANTASY!) but I had never read dialogues before and I decided it was worth a shot.

This is the third installment in the Dialogues series, however you can read in any order, because one does not affect the other.

This book deals with topics ranging from bullying to Prom and it's importance. I feel like this book can be read by people that are currently in High School, as well as people who are already grown up adults reliving their high school life.

Although it was helpful with advices, it got pretty boring at times. The Chief asked a question and then when it was answered he kept ricocheting back to it which was annoying, making the dialogue draaaag.

I think my favorite dialogue would be the fourth one, which talks about group projects. You have NO IDEA(you probably do tho) how stressful is to work with someone else, because sonehow I ALWAYS end up doing most of it due to incompetence.

I feel like this book not only help students byt teachers as well. Hifh School can be very socially and educationally stressful to students, so this book teaches them a few things that we think we know.

So if you want to go ahead and relive the old times, or learn about the new times, go ahead and read this book
