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!

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

Review for Loosing Me Finding You by Natalie Ward (Spoilers)

Loosing Me Finding You by Natalie Ward

Blurb:
The 29th of February, the day I was born.

When I wake up on this day, I’m in a different city, with a different life and no memory of the lives I had before this one. Today is the tenth time this has happened to me. The tenth time I’ve had to figure out where the hell I am. The tenth time I’ve had to try and work out who the hell I am. This is the tenth alteration of the person I am. Each of us has had different lives, different backgrounds and different families. But there’s always been one constant.

Him.

He’s the reason I keep doing this. He’s the reason I spend four years searching. If I’m lucky, I’ll get the trigger and find him quickly and we can spend those four years together before I disappear again. If I’m not, we might get a year, a month or even just a day. Once we got nothing, but that was a choice. 

And every time it happens, he patiently waits for me. He says that every time I come back to him, it’s like falling in love with me all over again. I say that every time I come back, I fall even more in love with him than before.

It scares me that one day I won't be able to find him at all, because when that day comes, I'm not sure I'll want to keep going. He is my strength, my protector, my one and only constant.

I love him.
He loves me.
But every four years, I lose myself. 
And every four years, I have to find him.
This is our story.


Review:
We human beings are naturally curious creatures. Our curiosity and the constant need to know things is what has led us to progress.
Nope this is not a lecture, I do have a point.

This book was good, it had its "Aww.." moments, and it was sweet, but what bugged me to no end is that how can you wake up in a new life every leap year and when you finally get back your memory of what actually happened and all of your previous lives, HOW CAN YOU NOT QUESTION IT?!?!

I mean how can one person not want to know why it happened, how it happened??? I cannot, cannot accept that because you desperately want to find and get back with the one you love, you will not question why or how things, impossible things are happening to you.

Maybe it was because I was so excited to read this book, maybe I had set the bar of expectations too high for this book, maybe because I'm a naturally curious person, I just wanted an explanation.... :/

*Sigh* I hate leaving reviews like this but I just had to vent!

I'd recommend it to those who do not mind knowing why and how and just want a nice romantic read...

Review for Anna and the French Kiss Series by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss Series by Stephanie Perkins


Anna and the French Kiss

Blurb:
Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris--until she meets √Čtienne St. Clair. Smart, charming,beautiful, √Čtienne has it all...including a serious girlfriend. 
But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

Review:
Loved this book. This was the first book that I've read by SP and I fell in love with the writing style and the story. Beautifully written, funny and deep.
This book is set in Paris so bonus! Adds to my 2015 Reading Challenge as well! ;)

Lola and the Boy Next Door
Blurb:
Lola Nolan is a budding costume designer, and for her, the more outrageous, sparkly, and fun the outfit, the better. And everything is pretty perfect in her life (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood When Cricket, a gifted inventor, steps out from his twin sister's shadow and back into Lola's life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.

Review:
From Lola's extravagant dresses to the feels, I adored this book! If I had to use one word to describe this book it'd be Cute! Beautifully written and fun read.

Isla and the Happily Ever After
Blurb:
Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last? 
Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart. 
Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, √Čtienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

Review:
I did like this book, it did have it's moments but it lacked the depth and meaning that we saw in the other books. 
Yes, its about finally being with someone you've wanted to be with for so long, about happily ever afters but somehow through the middle of the book I was not that eager to read it further. But I powered through because I knew there'd be a few comebacks to look forward to. Finally in the end I did have a grin on my face, because well come on who doesn't like all the plans coming together?
Overall, mixed feelings!


Overall Review for the series:
Light, fun read for all those who love a Happily Ever After! My personal favorite was Book 1 Anna and the French Kiss!
