Mail Call!!

Whohoo! You guys probably don’t know this but I love, love, absolutely LOVE getting mails! Especially letters or cards… they’re probably my favorite thing apart from books and book swag (obviously).

So last week I got a mail from Penguin *squeeeeeeeeee!!*


 And they asked me if I’d be interested in reading this book that’s releasing…
So much yes!

So today I got the book…. And it’s so preeetttttyyyyy! Love the cover!

THANK YOU Penguin India!!! :D

Back!

Hello lovelies!

After much of the family drama, I am BACK! Spent a couple weeks catching up with the TV shows I missed and a few comics, then more family drama *rolls eyes*...

BTW have you guys read The Flash Season Zero and Arrow Season 2.5 comics yet? They are pretty good!

So I did not get to read much over the last couple months but I have made progress with the 2015 Reading Challenge! I will have that updated by this week, I hope! :P

In other news I've joined Mandarin classes and hopefully, I will be able to speak fluently soon!

Also a friend's birthday is coming up and I'm thinking of making a few bookmarks for her to go with her gifts... I'll try to post pictures here... Maybe a giveaway if I can get people to join in? ;)
I detest birthdays! They make me much too anxious...

Till later!
Much love!

MIA

Well first off SO SORRY for being MIA!

My cousin is getting married and I've been swamped with the prep and all the shopping! (UGH! We spent hours!) and now my exams are coming up (Double UGH!)

So my lovelies I shall be back briefly by Mid-April and then after May. I will try my best to get another solution to post here.

On a lighter note...

Today my dad announced that he'll prank me tomorrow for April Fools Day. At that moment I was like Ha ha very funny dad. But now I'm not sure what he is going to do and its getting on my nerves! Was this his plan? To make me think of what he would do and ultimately not do anything?

Yep I've officially lost it. Blame it on the exams!

Later gorgeous people! Much love!

It doesn’t hurt to dream, unless you know your dreams will never come true.
Since childhood, Louise Woods has wanted to become a dancer. The day she arrives at Le Papillon – a private cabaret club where men come to enjoy the beauty of women dancing, her life completely changes. Louise lives in the club and the rules of living and working there cannot be ignored or broken. Either you do your best to please the clients, or you are out. No flirting, no secret affairs, just dancing.
During her first public show, Louise meets a stranger who pays for the privilege to have her privately dance for him.

Diana Nixon, an International Bestselling Author of contemporary and paranormal romances, is a woman of contradictions. She was born in Minsk, Belarus, where she currently lives and works on her books. She has a Master of Law degree and speaks several foreign languages, including English, Polish and Spanish.
Diana’s writing career is like a roller coaster ride. It started with a fantasy novel named Love Lines, that was originally written in Russian and only later, it was translated into English. Diana had always wanted her story to be well-known all over the world, that’s why she started working with the US publishers, but it was not easy living in Belarus. The book needed to be translated, edited and promoted. After almost a year of hard work, Diana had finally received the first copy of Love Lines. Since then, she has published 12 more books, both of contemporary and fantasy genres. Today, she’s one of Nevermore Press’ authors, but she has never forgotten about self-publishing, she still thinks that becoming an Indie author is the best way to make your writing dreams come true.Louise Text Follow Here

Review for Inked by Eric Smith

Inked by Eric Smith

Blurb:
Tattoos once were an act of rebellion. 

Now they decide your destiny the moment the magical Ink settles under your skin. 
And in a world where Ink controls your fate, Caenum can't escape soon enough. He is ready to run from his family, and his best friend Dreya, and the home he has known, just to have a chance at a choice. 
But when he upsets the very Scribe scheduled to give him his Ink on his eighteenth birthday, he unwittingly sets in motion a series of events that sends the corrupt, magic-fearing government, The Citadel, after him and those he loves. 
Now Caenum, Dreya, and their reluctant companion Kenzi must find their way to the Sanctuary, a secret town where those with the gift of magic are safe. Along the way, they learn the truth behind Ink, its dark origins, and why they are the only ones who can stop the Citadel.
Eric Smith takes you on a high-octane fantasy adventure, perfect for anyone who has dreamed of being different… only to discover that fate is more than skin deep.


Review:
"Be Fearless. Be Bold. Be Magic."

Inked was a yet another take on the dystopian scene. Like all the dystopian themes, Inked had all the basic elements that appeal to the dystopian readers - rebellion, conspiracy, epic fight scenes and to top it all off, a little bit of magic.

I would have liked it to be a bit more grittier and a bit more detailed. It does have an open ending which makes me wonder if there is going to be another book or at least a novella with an HEA.

I'd recommend this to new and young readers and those trying out fantasy for the first time. I think young readers might really enjoy this book! :)

Overall, a very engaging story!

Update!

Hello my lovelies!

I'll get right to the point. My home is getting refurbished and I won't have as much time as I'd like to post reviews here... :(

On the other side after all the things are done there will be many reviews to come after because with limited access to the internet, all I'll have to keep me sane are the books! ;)

Also I'm thinking about doing a few promo posts for authors, (Psstt... Authors feel free to contact me! :D )

On the sidelines... I'll be on Twitter @TheCuriosityKey and if you all need me drop me a DM over there.... :D

Also my birthday is in a few days!! :D Whohoo!! :D

Maybe after all the things settle down I'll have a giveaway... It'll be at least a couple cool bookmarks! (I'm a secret bookmark hoarder... Well not so secret now :P)

Lastly,
Keep safe, be happy and keep reading!! :D <3
