If There’s No Tomorrow | Quotes

books-flowers-tumblr-vintag

I haven’t felt the need to write anything in the last months, whether it was this blog or my book in progress, I have felt only grief, the worst kind of it.

There are a few authors out there for who I don’t need to know what their books is about, everytime they publish a new one I know I’ll read, eventually. Armentrout is in said group. I fell in love with her writing with the Lux series, and I’ve seen her grown as an author from the Covenant Series to her latest release, If There’s No Tomorrow. Her writing is so much better but the esence is still there in every silly reliable comment, in every well-written and devastating emotion.

It’s no wonder that it took me only four hours -with so many breaks -to finish this book. I don’t know if it has happened to you, but most of the time I see some of the characters in myself, but this time I saw some of myself in Lena.

Yes, I went through an unrequited love for a couple of years, I lost three parts of myself in the same couple of years and I’m trying to cope with grief every day. I know the pain won’t always be this intense, but some days it feels like it would never stop and is the only thing left inside of me.

I wasn’t sure if I should post this, it came from somewhere deep inside of me, it feels too personal but at the same time, I think is a good way to remember them, to let them know I’m still fighting to find myself once again.

It’s a nice sentiment, though, isn’t it? Living life saying tomorrow will be better whenever something bad happens. Whenever we’re filled with disappointment. But tomorrow is never guaranteed.

Will I continue with this series? | Waiting on Wednesday

This Waiting on Wednesday is going to be a bit different for the previous posts in this section.

Who doesn’t love a good fantasy book? A story about magical creatures who fell in love with humans in worlds divided by wars. Yeah, I love those kinds of stories so is quite obvious that I’ve read all the books published by Sarah J. Maas until yesterday when Tower of Dawn was released.

I’ve loved each one of the books she has published in both of her sagas there are so many great characters, plot-lines and battles. When she announced the novella about Chaol, I was even fine with it, a plus, for those who like him and I was going to read it, because why not? But then… Oh boy, she wrote so much about him that the novella turned into a WHOLE BOOK was centred in a character that has the worst development in the series, by doing this the publication date of the last book was postponed. THAT didn’t make me happy.

I was okay with the fact that Maas loved Chaol so much for her to write a novella about him, but pushing, even more, the publication date of the last book didn’t sit well with me to the point that I don’t want to read anything about Chaol.

What’s even more, that’s not the only reason I’m not sure about continuing with this series. After I read ACOWAR, I was so disappointed with all the cliches and boring battle scenes and how she refuses to talk publicly about diversity, we know she tried to make her books more relatable to all her readers for all over the world, but the way she chose to do it wasn’t okay.

She is one of my favourite authors but recently I’ve felt so let down for her decisions in both series to be excited about this new release, which doesn’t feature the main character at all and chronologically happens at the same time than the last book. Only George. R. R. Martin can do that.

So, yeah, I’m 90% sure I won’t read this book, the other 10% is all about my effing curiosity for knowing it all, but I’ll fight it because I don’t even care if Chaol dies in this novel. 

Let’s be sassy together. 

 

 

Guilty Pleasure | Discussion

So, let’s be honest.

Almost everyone has a gender they read but rarely talk about it, or you talk about it but with selected people, people you know won’t judge you for what you really like.

You’re probably thinking, why would I hide what I read? Actually, I don’t hide it, is just that I don’t talk about it openly, but if you have the time you can always check my Goodreads’ read shelf.

That gender for me is Romance, but not any kind of romance I’m talking about Sports Romance, those books with the hot shirtless guy on the cover sometimes accompanied by a smoking hot girl, where he is a professional hockey/football/rugby/baseball player.

These steamy novels kept me reading until late at night, they are more about character development and common people falling in love and/or overcoming a tragic event. And maybe you’ve seen some of these books out there but never really picked one up. Well let’s not judge it by its cover, they might surprise you if you give it a try.

Recently I’ve been catching up with a series I haven’t read in almost two years and that is:

ASSASSINS by TONI ALEO

There are way too many books in this unputdownable series, obviously, I’ve enjoyed some of them more than others, being my favourites Taking Shots, Blue Lines, Breaking Away and Overtime.

    

Right now I’m reading book number eight, it is quite a different read and style from the first book in this series, you can clearly see how much the author has improved in six years, how her characters have developed with each book and how every story has intertwined with the others turning it into a fantastic big family joined by their love for hockey.

RUSHING THE GOAL by TONI ALEO

These are the kind of books that take me out of any reading slump, and it’s been weeks since a picked up one of faves fantasy or YA books. That doesn’t mean there is something wrong if you only read this kind of books, you’re free to do as you please but for me is more like a gateway, something I only do from time to time because sometimes I have had enough of high fantasy or historical fiction.

 

Best Quotes, two very different books

 

books-flowers-tumblr-vintag

I thought it would be fun to share a few quotes of my most recent reads.

Right now, I’m struggling at reading a book written in Spanish “La Cancion Secreta del Mundo”, in English “The Secret Song of the World”. It is not as any book I’ve read before and I’ve read a lot of urban fantasy novels, but this YA standalone is certainly blowing my mind.

After that rambling, let’s just go and share some beautiful and shocking quotes today.

“On our wedding night,” she said, “I will cut out your tongue and swallow it. Then both tongues that spoke our marriage vows will belong to me, and I will be wed only to myself. You will most likely choke to death on your own blood, which will be unfortunate, but I will be both husband and wife and therefore not a widow to be pitied.”

It’s by far one of the most original and compelling stories I’ve read in all 2k17. Right now it is in place number two in my Top 10 Reads of 2017. Don’t miss out the opportunity to read more about a different type of YA.

“Love is a wordless secret; it’s an inside joke. Only the two of you have to understand it.”

I’m still not sure what is the rating I’m going to give to this new novel, I’ve so many mixed feelings. In one hand, I hate love-at-first-sight novels but on the other hand, Renee knows how to write a good romance and with such hard topic I was crying and frustrated through all the reading.

 

I’ll share with you more quotes in the next weeks, I’ve read so many good books this year and for many genders, I’ve never thought I’d read before. It certainly has been a very diverse year in my reading life.
