Now Stacking The Shelves!

I have been trying to stay away from the whole plagiarism issue with The Story Siren. I don't support plagiarism or bullying, etc. I haven't had time to read all the posts with your opinions and thoughts, I'm actually just having some extra time to read comments on my already scheduled and published posts...but I discovered this great new meme by Tynga's reviewsStacking the Shelves!


Isn't that a cool banner? :) It's kind of refreshing!

Anyway, this was a slow week for me. I almost didn't read, mostly because I've been busy with work and planning my vacations, but I still got some great book for review:


Shift by Kim Curran

What do you think? All of them sound good, I hope I can read them as soon as possible :P Ohh, and what did you get this week?

Book Review: Article 5 by Kristen Simmons

Title: Article 5
Author: Kristen Simmons
Series: Article 5 #1
Release Date: January 31st 2012
Publisher: Tor Teen
Age: Young Adult
New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., have been abandoned.

The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.

There are no more police—instead, there are soldiers. There are no more fines for bad behavior—instead, there are arrests, trials, and maybe worse. People who get arrested usually don't come back.

Seventeen-year-old Ember Miller is old enough to remember that things weren't always this way. Living with her rebellious single mother, it's hard for her to forget that people weren't always arrested for reading the wrong books or staying out after dark. It's hard to forget that life in the United States used to be different.

Ember has perfected the art of keeping a low profile. She knows how to get the things she needs, like food stamps and hand-me-down clothes, and how to pass the random home inspections by the military. Her life is as close to peaceful as circumstances allow.

That is, until her mother is arrested for noncompliance with Article 5 of the Moral Statutes. And one of the arresting officers is none other than Chase Jennings—the only boy Ember has ever loved.
Dystopias are pretty popular right now. I like some of them, but my problem is that I get tired pretty fast. That's why I wanted to read Article 5, it sounded different. I was curious, it wasn't about a natural disaster or a disease, but a past war and a new 'government'.

Ember lives in a world of soldiers and articles. If you don't follow them, you're punished. So she's keeping a low profile to live a peaceful life, but when her mother is arrested for noncompliance with Article 5 of the Moral Statutes, her life changes forever.

I really liked this book. It has a little bit of everything, and I think it was realistic. Ember is obliged to attend a 'reformatory' for girls like her...Articles 5. They treat her badly, hurt her and practically abused of her. It was pretty bad (but not as bad as it could have been). When she's about to receive the worst punishment, she's 'saved' by her ex-boyfriend, Chase Jennings, who now is a soldier. She can't trust him, so why is he helping her?

I liked Ember, but sometimes she was too naive. I had an idea of what happened to the other girls at the reformatory when the soldiers decided to punish them, but I can say she was very strong. I liked her love for her mother, she really wanted to find her, but again, she thought they could live a normal life after being arrested?

Chase was a great character, and I think he kind of stole the story. I wanted to know more about him, his suffering and what was on his mind when he decided to help Ember. Also, I liked their 'romance'. I wouldn't call this a romance book, but it's definitely there. But it was realistic (yay!), not ridiculously sweet but more like 'I love you and I will save your life not matter what'.

But, I wished there were more explanations, like why The Bill of Rights has been revoked and why people accept this new regimen. There was bits of explanations, a war from the past, but nothing full. Also, I didn't like Ember's actions sometimes. It was like she was acting exactly as they expected...there was some kissing (not with Chase) that I didn't understand...she was playing with fire.

Overall, I enjoyed Article 5 and definitely recommend it for someone who wants to read a book full of action. It's a great debut, and as I believe it's the kind of thing that could easily happen in our world.

Book Review: To Catch a Highlander (MacLean Curse #3) by Karen Hawkins

Author:  Karen Hawkins
Series: MacLean Curse, #3
Release Date: January 1st 2008
Publisher: Pocket
Age: Adult
In this sizzling romantic adventure, a daring Highland lass plays a high-stakes game to keep the home she loves...but ends up losing her heart instead.
When her father gambles away the family estate to darkly dangerous Lord Dougal MacLean, Sophia MacFarlane is determined to use her wiles to regain it. Forced to stake the one thing she has left -- her virtue -- she desperately hopes her skill can limit her losses to a few kisses...no matter how hotly tempting Dougal turns out to be.

Dougal MacLean knows that Sophia has some trick up her sleeve, but he can't resist the challenge -- or her ravishing beauty. So when she proposes a card game with most unusual stakes, Dougal is delighted to accept. But as the game ends, Dougal and Sophia discover they've wagered something even more precious -- their hearts.
It has been a while since I read a highlander romance, and I'm really happy I read To Catch a Highlander because I practically loved it.

Dougal is the typical alpha male. He won a house from Sophia's father at a gambling game and is decided to claim it. But Sophia and her father are doing everything to make him leave and leave their house alone.

Sophia is a beauty, and her life is basically spending time with her father. She's not happy when learning her father lost not only their house, but also her mother's jewels. But she has a plan, trick Dougal into a gambling game where she can win the house...and maybe a few kisses.

I love these kind of romance where the sexual tension of the protagonists is everything. Dougal and Sophia were attracted since the moment they met and they did anything to spend time alone and do naughty things. I wasn't expecting to find Dougal's sister and her husband in this story, but it was a nice addition.

Overall, To Catch a Highlander is one of my favorites books of the MacLean Curse series. It's the perfect romance to read in just one afternoon, I liked both protagonists and they always managed to trick themselves in naughty situations.

Waiting on Wednesday # 96 - Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick: Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson #4) by Darynda Jones

Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.

In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.

I just love this series! (favorite :P) Charley is my idol!

Book Review: Somebody To Love by Kristan Higgins

Book Cover of Somebody to Love by Kristan Higgins
Title: Somebody To Love
Author: Kristan Higgins
Release Date: April 24th 2012
Publisher: HQN Books
Age: Adult
After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon’s Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns—a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father’s wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she’s not thrilled…even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox.

Having to fend for herself financially for the first time in her life, Parker signs on as a florist’s assistant and starts to find out who she really is. Maybe James isn’t the glib lawyer she always thought he was. And maybe the house isn’t the only thing that needs a little TLC…
Somebody To Love is my second book read from Kristan Higgins. The first was Until There Was You, which I loved it. So when this one was on NetGalley, I couldn't wait to read it.

Parker Welles is a single mom, who lives in a mansion and is doing great by her own. Except when her father loses the family fortune, she's practically left with nothing. The only thing left for her is an old house at Maine, which she's going to fix and sell to be close to her son's father.

I liked Parker, but I didn't give 5 stars to be book because of her. She was good, sweet, and wasn't afraid to work, but I couldn't stand the way she talked about Ethan, her son's father. Apparently they were friends, had one night, and she got pregnant. They weren't in love, and then he fell in love with another woman. They are all cool and share their son, but Ethan was treated like an angel. He's a good person, but I hate when people doesn't move on...

James Cahill was her father's lawyer, and he has always been there. Parker hates him, and calls him "Thing One". She hates him because he's her father's right hand, and she thinks he's fake. Turns out James isn't, he's sweet, caring and actually likes Parker (I don't know why, since she treated him bad).  He's also hot, which is a plus, and decides to help Parker to fix her new house.

I don't know how James could stand Parker when she talked about Ethan. But he did. Also, I don't know how he was so patient with her son, who didn't like him...But I really liked James, he was a good protagonist and for a while I just wanted him to be happy, even if that meant Parker wasn't in his life.

Overall, I like Kristan Higgins writing, not only because her romances are sweet with happy endings., but because they are easy to enjoy, and realistic. Somebody to Love fulfilled my expectations, Parker and James needed time to heal and be brave enough to start a new life together.

Book-Trailer: Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf

Hi guys! I want to show you another book trailer, this time of Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf, which is going to be released April 24th 2012 by Walker Childrens.

Book Cover Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf
Allie lost everything the night her boyfriend, Trip, died in a horrible car accident—including her memory of the event. As their small town mourns his death, Allie is afraid to remember because doing so means delving into what she’s kept hidden for so long: the horrible reality of their abusive relationship.

When the police reopen the investigation, it casts suspicion on Allie and her best friend, Blake, especially as their budding romance raises eyebrows around town. Allie knows she must tell the truth. Can she reach deep enough to remember that night so she can finally break free? Debut writer Jennifer Shaw Wolf takes readers on an emotional ride through the murky waters of love, shame, and, ultimately, forgiveness.
Let me know what you think about the trailer :)


Also, if you are interested, Angela Morrison is having a giveaway on her blog where you can win a copy of Breaking Beautiful :)

Waiting on Wednesday # 95 - A Lady by Midnight by Tessa Dare

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick: A Lady by Midnight (Spindle Cove #3) by Tessa Dare
Book Cover of A Lady by Midnight by Tessa Dare
A temporary engagement, a lifetime in the making...


After years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and acceptance in Spindle Cove--but she never stopped yearning for love. The very last place she'd look for it is in the arms of Corporal Thorne. The militia commander is as stone cold as he is brutally handsome. But when mysterious strangers come searching for Kate, Thorne steps forward as her fiance. He claims to have only Kate's safety in mind. So why is there smoldering passion in his kiss?

Long ago, Samuel Thorne devoted his life to guarding Kate’s happiness. He wants what's best for her, and he knows it's not marriage to a man like him. To outlast their temporary engagement, he must keep his hands off her tempting body and lock her warm smiles out of his withered heart. It's the toughest battle of this hardened warrior's life...and the first he seems destined to lose.
August 28th 2012 by Avon Books

I really like this series! Recently, I finished book two, so I can't wait for this one! :P

Book Review: Second Grave on the Left (Charley Davidson, #2) by Darynda Jones

Author: Darynda Jones
Series: Charley Davidson #2
Release Date: August 16th 2011
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Age: Adult
Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper Extraordinaire, is back in this sexy, suspenseful novel of supernatural shenanigans
When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can’t help but wonder what Cookie’s up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously? Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a woman’s name. Mimi’s husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been found murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.
Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He’s left his body because he’s being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can’t let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they’ll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?
It's difficult to review a series you love, because probably every book will be great for you and sometimes you just want to say: I loved it!

Well, Second Grave on the Left is that kind of book. It's the second book from the Charley Davidson series, and Charley is still funny and amazing. She's leaning more about her powers and still have the support of her amazing best friend, Cookie. She is now helping Cookie find one of her other friends, who is missing because probably someone wants to kill her. But why?

Anyway, I thought / wanted Reyes to be more present in this book. At first Charley and him were kind of fighting but then he was being attacked and waiting to die. Of course, nobody would have allowed that, much less Charley. I don't want to say more because of spoilers, but while tying to find him Charley discovers some things that left me wanting more and thinking 'now what Charley?'.

Overall, if by any case you haven't read the Charley Davidson series, and you like urban fantasy, hilarious characters and hot bad boys, you have to start reading it asap.

Book Review: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

Book Cover of The Curios Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
Author: Mark Haddon
Release Date: May 18th 2004
Publisher: Vintage
Age: Young Adult
Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.
This improbable story of Christopher's quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.
Christopher is 15 years old and has Asperger, a form of autism.  He can't lie, he doesn't understand human emotions and he observers a lot. He likes dogs, so when Wellington, the neighbors's dog, is killed, and he's the principal suspect, Christopher decides to investigate as Sherlock Holmes and find the real killer.

I really wanted to read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, almost all the reviews are good. So when I had a chance, I just bought it and didn't regret it. I read it super fast, even my mother read it, and we both loved it.

Christopher is not common. Because of his Asperger, he's actually very interesting. He's obsessed with number and he's trying to write a book about his adventures. He writes back and forward on his book, every chapter is about something different and he numbers them by prime numbers, but it's very cool. Since I read his first words (and his drawings) I was captivated. It was like being inside his mind, where he sometimes can't concentrate on something or sometimes he concentrates too much.

Also, I liked the mystery about who really killed the dog. I didn't have a clue (well, I'm not Sherlock Holmes), and several times I just gasped or just said out loud 'What?!'. Then I had to explain to my boyfriend what I just discovered hehe.

Really, there isn't a way to describe this book as it deserves, but if you're at least a little bit interested, read it. Christopher was an amazing character, he managed to left his fears behind and made a great journey in a world where he is constantly misunderstood; and if you have met a person with autism, you will realize he's very realistic.

Overall, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is one of my favorite books read this year,  I just can't get it out of my head, and I'm sure I'm going to re-read it several times in my future.



PS: I read the spanish edition.

I already posted a review of the Puzzlebook: 20 Easter Puzzle Quizzes, so you can read how much I enjoyed it for Easter. The Puzzlebook: 101 Puzzle Quizzes isn't the exception, I had a great time trying to solve the puzzles and spent a couple of days trying to solve them all.

It was a good choice to play it at my iPhone Kindle App, since I could enjoy the color of the puzzles. Also, it was very easy to play, as the tittle says, it's interactive and I just had to touch the answer on the screen.

The puzzles were more difficult this time. They started pretty simple but then became more complicated, and  sometimes I had to ask for help. But I loved how everyone had to sit for a while to think the best answer.

I think the Puzzlebook: 101 Puzzle Quizzes is a great game to have on your Kindle or Kindle Apps. Whenever you have time, you can solve a few puzzles, or if you prefer, you can do it all of them on a couple of hours. But I'm sure you are not going to get bored!

Waiting on Wednesday # 94 - A Night Like This by Julia Quinn

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Anne Wynter might not be who she says she is…

But she's managing quite well as a governess to three highborn young ladies. Her job can be a challenge — in a single week she finds herself hiding in a closet full of tubas, playing an evil queen in a play that might be a tragedy (or might be a comedy—no one is sure), and tending to the wounds of the oh-so-dashing Earl of Winstead. After years of dodging unwanted advances, he's the first man who has truly tempted her, and it's getting harder and harder to remind herself that a governess has no business flirting with a nobleman.


Daniel Smythe-Smith might be in mortal danger…

But that's not going to stop the young earl from falling in love. And when he spies a mysterious woman at his family's annual musicale, he vows to pursue her, even if that means spending his days with a ten-year-old who thinks she's a unicorn. But Daniel has an enemy, one who has vowed to see him dead. And when Anne is thrown into peril, he will stop at nothing to ensure their happy ending…

Book Review: How to Ravish a Rake by Vicky Dreiling

Author: Vicky Dreiling
Series: How To Series #3
Release Date: March 27th 2012
Publisher: Forever
Age: Adult
SCANDALOUS DESIRES . . .
Amy Hardwick has one last Season to shake off her wallflower image and make a love match. If she can't, she'll set aside her dreams of romance and return home to a suitor who can provide security-if little else. What she doesn't count on is the inappropriate-and irresistible-attention lavished on her in a darkened library by rake extraordinaire Will "The Devil" Darcett . . .
DEVILISH DELIGHT
When Will is caught in a tryst with the ton's shyest miss, he knows he must offer for her hand. Yet Amy is not the shrinking violet she seems to be. Passion lies beneath her prim exterior and Will is eager to release it. But winning Amy isn't simply a matter of seduction; first, Will must convince her that he's mended his wicked ways . . .
I was impatiently waiting for Amy Hardwick story, she was a wallflower from the begging of this series and had no prospect of getting married. But she stared to talk more and make an impression, and I was sure  that when I read this book she was going to be stronger than anyone.

Amy has changed. It's her last season and she's the most fashionable lady of the ton. She has friends and feels good, but still no one asks her to dance, expect Will 'the devil' Darcett. She hates him since she met him at her best friend wedding....but she can't stop noticing how attractive he is.

Will just want to keep traveling around the world with his best friend, but his family is not giving him more money. He has to work, or win at gambling...or compromise an heiress. I liked Will, but also I didn't think he deserved to be called 'the devil'. He was naughty and thought about compromising Amy, but in the end nothing happened like he expected it. He's attracted to Amy and isn't sad about their new life together, but also don't expect nothing about it.

Like the previous books from this series, How to Marry a Duke and How to Seduce a Scoundrel, I thought it was missing more passion. Will and Amy could have been an explosive couple, Amy wasn't as shy as the previous books but I couldn't see what Will liked about her. Also, the first half of the book was a little bit slow and made me loose interest in Amy and Will...I was rather hoping for more story about Georgette, Amy's friend.

Overall, I didn't love  How to Ravish a Rake, but still enjoyed it and liked how I could see Amy and Will's love grow. I only wish there was an epilogue or something more, because the ending felt very abrupt to me, and I wanted to see more of Will and Amy as a real couple.

Book Review: Oracle's Moon (Elder Races #4) by Thea Harrison

Title: Oracle's Moon
Author: Thea Harrison
Series: Elder Races #4
Release Date: March 6th 2012
Publisher: Berkley
Age: Adult
As a second daughter, Grace Andreas never had to worry about the intrigues of the Elder Races. But when her sister, Petra, and Petra’s husband are both killed, Grace inherits the Power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister’s two young children – neither of which she is prepared for.

Yet, she is not alone. Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn prince of House Marid – driven by his genuine caring for the children – has decided to make himself a part of the household both as their guardian and as an exasperating counterpoint to Grace’s impudence toward the Elder Races.

But when an attempt is made on Grace’s life, she realizes that Khalil is the only one who can protect her – and offer her more than a mortal man…
Oracle's Moon is the fourth book from the Elder Races series, and it's one of my favorites!

Grace Andreas wasn't supposed to be the Oracle, but when her sister died in a car accident, the Power goes to her. Also, she now has a bad knee and she has to take care of her two nephews, both very young, and with no money.

So when Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn prince of House Marid, decides her children need his protection, she's not very happy. Why would she trust him?

I loved Grace and Khalil. Grace is twenty something but very mature, and makes everything it's on her hands to take care of the children. Khalil is very old, but he was captivated by this young human, who is about to crumble, and the children, who are, for him, very fragile and remind him of his own daughter.

Their romance wasn't rushed. Their attraction wasn't instantly, and little by little Khalil started entering their lives and sharing everything with the kids and Grace. The kids were absolutely cute, and I think Khalil stole my heart when he made a promise to keep them safe...specially because being a Djinn, he's mostly disconnected with the human world.

Grace is one of my favorite heroines. I kind of connected with her, because of the age and her actions. She did most of the things I'd have done in her case, and I always like an intelligent protagonist.

There was a little bit of mystery about her sister's accident and Grace's Powers, but I was more interested about the Djinns, they are so different, I'm curious.

Overall, Oracle's Moon is one of my favorites books read this year. I really enjoyed the romance and I'm glad I decided to continue this series...it's getting better and better!

What do you think? Aren't you curious about Djinns?

Happy Puzzling!
I really like puzzles, so when I was contacted to review the Puzzlebook: 20 Easter Puzzle Quizzes by The Grabarchuk Family, I was pretty curious. Games for my Kindle!? Yay! I'm not very familiar with games for Kindle, but this one sounds cool. You can play on any Kindle device or application, but decided to play it on my iPhone since I wanted the whole color experience (I have the black-and-white Kindle keyboard).

I enjoyed so much the puzzles! They were easy at first but then started to get more difficult, but that was just better because it made me think more! Also, I liked that they were about Easter, it made them more fun and cute. I was so engrossed on the puzzles that even my boyfriend started helping me, and I shared them with my niece (she loved them).

I think Puzzlebook: 20 Easter Puzzle Quizzes is an excellent way to have fun on Easter, not only for kids, but for adults too. It's a shame there are only 20 Easter Puzzles, but at least I can play more puzzles on the other puzzle books, Puzzlebook: 100 Puzzle Quizzes, Puzzlebook: 101 Puzzle Quizzes, Puzzlebook: 102 Puzzle Quizzes.
