Cover Reveal: Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic by Meghan Ciana Doidge

Synopsis: If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept —  was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.

Genre: Urban Fantasy (Adult/New Adult)

Cover Artist: Irene Langholm

Release date: June 21, 2013

Giveaways and other swag will be revealed on Meghan's blog throughout June, including chances to win an eARC before the release date.

Oh, Carly! You Procrastinator!: National English Honor Society Inductions

Tonight was my NEHS inductions.  Now, my adviser is the type of guy who is laid back and kind of a throw it together last minute person.  Just getting the date of the induction set aside was a miracle.  I didn't expect to actually have an organized reading tonight.  Silly me.

So, tonight we sat in a big circle, introduced ourselves, and shared a meaningful passage from a book. My adviser/teacher started off and let everybody know that we had a week to pick out something special.  What was I doing at this time?  Flipping through Catching Fire trying to find something on the fly that had some sort of depth.  Of course, it's an honors society so everybody else had their pages bookmarked, flagged, highlighted, and ready to go.  Figures that I'm the only idiot searching last minute.

And what do I happen upon? The part where Madge tells Katniss to keep the mockingjay pin.  I was hoping for something about the mockingjay's significance, something that I would have probably found in The Hunger Games, but who knew there would be magic one flip of a page away.

I chose a passage about how the mockingjay was never meant to be a weapon, that the Capitol didn't take into account its ability to store genetic codes,... And somehow I pulled it stuff out of my butt about the symbolism of the mockingjay, it representing rebellion and resiliency.  I got to say, it turned out better than I thought.

Yes, this actually is one of my favorite books.  I do think the mockingjay is an important symbol.  It's on the cover of all of the books for goodness sake!  But it was just a funny moment in retrospect since I was the only one scrounging to find something among a group of well prepared, responsible students.  Funny how that seems to often be the situation.

Happy Memorial Day!

Thank you to all of those people who have sacrificed their lives for their country.  Thank you to all of those people currently defending me.  I know it's technically not Veteran's Day, and lots of people gave Obama poop for this tweet because of this, but it doesn't matter what holiday it is.  Frankly, it was among one of the pettiest arguments I've seen on Twitter, and I see a lot of them following an Obama tweet. EVERYDAY should be a day to appreciate those who have made bigger sacrifices so that you can live your life as well as thank those currently in uniform for what they do.

Did that just Happen?: The Great Gatsby Movie Review

7/10 stars

I never read the book.  My English class read Adventures of Huck Finn while every other one read Gatsby.  I planned to read it, but it just didn't happen before seeing it.

The cast was great, from Leo DiCaprio to Tobey McGuire.  It may just be because I'm a diehard Titanic fan and am a shipper of Leo and Kate, but I thought the chemistry between Gatsby and Daisy was a bit weak.

The cinematography was amazing!  The costumes and party scenes had a great 1920s air to it.  Compared to the trailers which looked like they could have given someone a seizure, the movie was much gentler on the eye but still had a little punch.

I recently watched Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, and it is similar to Gatsby in that it has a historical setting but was full of modern music.  Some people think that this adds to the movie, allowing the audience to find a modern connection while others believe that it detracts from the historic atmosphere. I fall within the latter.  I didn't realize it until the credits, but Jay-Z is an executive producer of the film.  No wonder.

I know that the book was fairly short, so I'm kinda surprised that the movie ran so long.  My behind was hurting after sitting for so long!  It definitely could have been shorter.

Someone who has read the book, did the ending end like that?  That's really depressing if so.  I don't think I could like Daisy if that happened.

I know I didn't read it, but I can't come up with any possible themes for this book should i have to analyze it.  Was it a reflection of the wealthy at the time, or was Fitzgerald simply warning us not to fall in love, especially with someone who's taken.

Overall, I did like the movie.  Its been mixed reviews which I don't find odd.  I saw it with my sister who read it and she didn't like it but I did.  Perhaps wait until it comes out on DVD if you are tentative.

TMI Coming Out 2 Days Early!

Wow, whoever is in charge of TMI movie is making some seriously bold decisions!  Somebody's a little confident that TMI will be a huge franchise.  I hope it all works out because Cassandra Clare certainly deserves it.

Not only is filming for City of Ashes starting come fall, but City of Bones is no longer premiering Fri 8-23, but Wed 8-21!

I'm excited by aren't these movie premieres getting weird?  They're not at midnight anymore, but at weird times like 9 or 10 PM and not always on Thurs/Fri either!  Guess nobody wants to be out that late.  I want to be nice and cozy reading then!

Oh no! No Fangirling (for the Delirium cast) in my Future


FOX did not pick up the pilot Delirium.  It was based on Lauren Oliver's book by the same name, and Emma Roberts was the lead.  I was super ecited for this one because, not only do I love Emma, but I also adore Gregg Sulkin from Wizards of Waverly Place who was also supposed to be in it.

Fans can demand for it on Twitter, and you never know, Fox just may bring it back.  It has happened before i.e. Community and more recently the last episodes of 666 Park Avenue.

If you want it, go tweet!

Ohh la la Vampire Academy Cast Breakdown

I'm sorry to whoever made this lovely thing, but I found your creation on Twitter and I don't know who you are.

I gotta be honest, I have no idea who any of these people are except Zoey Deutch and Sarah Hyland, but the other actors should be good.  If nothing else, they'll be pretty to look at!

I haven't read VA but Rachel insists that I do so, so I promise I will before 2-14-14!

Review: Down London Road by Samantha Young

Down London Road (On Dublin Street, #2)Down London Road by Samantha Young

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary: Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control. Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....
It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may—or may not—fly.
But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable. The sexy new bartender at work gives her butterflies every time she looks at him. And for once, Jo is tempted to put her needs first. Cam is just as obsessed with getting to know Jo, but her walls are too solid to let him get close enough to even try.
Then Cam moves into the flat below Jo’s, and their blistering connection becomes impossible to ignore. Especially since Cam is determined to uncover all of Jo’s secrets…even if it means taking apart her defenses piece by piece.
Characters: All of the beloved characters from On Dublin Street make an appearance, which was lovely for me.  I know I'm not the only one who gets attached to characters!

Jo: I love this girl.  She's an admirable young woman who is much more than the eye can see.  She seems like a major gold digger, but she's taking care of her brother and mom all by herself so she had motivation to be with a rich guy.  But the thing that I liked about her was that she actually cared about that bloke and wasn't just using him for his money.  Jo is not as snarky as Joss, which stinks because Joss' comments are hilarious and audacious, but I love Jo for her selflessness and compassion.

Cam: I'm happy that Jo finds this guy because he is near perfect.  He can come off as a jerk, but he's a caring softie underneath the tattoos.  What I love most about him is that he treats Cole like a friend.  And of course his playful, funny comments.  I did enjoy that he could also have a more serious and insecure side, making him more human.

Plot: I guess I'm just an impatient romantic but why did these two need to be in relationships prior to meeting each other? I suppose it was to heighten the drama and tension, but they could have gotten together so much quicker!!! 

I stayed up all night and into the morning to finish this baby.  Personally, I love the way Samantha Young can capture my attention by throwing in little curve balls of unexpected drama while making me laugh and smile at the same time.

Just a little warning, this book is either new adult or adult fiction so the content is more mature.  Let's just say some scenes get a little hot and heavy fast.

SPOILER The one problem I did have with the plot though was that Jo wouldn't kill a spider because she thought it was wrong but she allowed others to beat up an abusive person to teach him a lesson.  What kind of a lesson besides hypocrisy is that?

Sequels: This June, a novella about Adam and Ellie comes out;) Then, in 2014 a 
book about new characters Olivia and Nate hits the shelf!!! I'm super excited! And the titles are so cute!

Would I recommend it? Yeah, I love this series! They're a bit heavier and mature, but they still have drama, humor, romance, and hope- my favorites.

Don't Look Down

Guess what was released today?  An epic still from Divergent!  I hope you don't mind heights and rooftops...

These pictures are getting me excited for the movie.  I read Divergent about a year ago and have a very bad memory of things I haven't read in awhile.  Personally, and I know I'm going to get a thousand "What?  You're crazy!"s right now, but I didn't think the book was that special.  I mean, I can' even remember what happened in it.  I know Rachel read it, but she can't even remember reading it.  There's no way this can be the next Hunger Games because it's not memorable enough. Now, I liked it, but I don't understand the hype over this book.  It's just another dystopian, a genre that has become the new vampires for me.  It's getting over done.  Where's the originality these days?

2nd Blog?

I just discovered this cool, new social media site for book lovers.  It's called Booklikes.  I describe it as a Goodreads + Blogger but with a bit cooler features, or at least I think so because I have yet to figure out how everything works.

All of the members have blogs where they can post reviews and add books to their shelves just like on Goodreads.  Much like Tumblr, I think (I'm a neophyte when it comes to social media besides Twitter and Instagram), you can reblog something cool.

This website is pretty new, coming out in 2012 I believe.  Honestly, I think this could really be the next big thing for us bibliophiles.  The only drawback I've found so far is that it doesn't give you recommendations like Goodreads, but how accurate are their recommendations anyway.  What's important is connecting with other readers and sharing books.

I didn't realize it until now, but starting a new blog is going to take a lot of work.  Just adding all of my books to the shelves will take hours and hours.  And adding reviews?  This is going to be a nightmare if I go through with it.  But I genuinely think that this could catch on.  I might even tell my friend Dani not to make a Goodreads, but instead make one of these bad boys.

Not that I have much on it right now beacuse I'm still debating if I build up my blog on Booklike or not, but my username is Lisleslivres.  Surprised by that?

I Did It!!! 10,000 Views!

Look at that excited face!!!!  Again, thanks for reading, guys.  It's been about 7 months since I started this blog.  Expect to see even better stuff this summer.

Book Haul

So, a week ago I went to a book sale at my local library.  You can read about that craziness here.

So what did I pick up?  Well, I'm not a fan of softcovers and that was pretty much all that was there for YA.  However, I got some books in French!  Now that may not seem very interesting, but you don't know how hard it is to find books in French.  I've looked on the Canadian site of Amazon and books are so expensive.  And paperback!! When I went to France, I got all of the Percy Jackson's and Hunger Games.  There was not a single hardback.  I thought it was bizarre.

Anyway, I got a new, not really, French-English dictionary(boring), Napoleon's autobiography, a giant book on the history of the French Revolution, and a book on the words of Tao.  The book on the French Rev is filled with neat pictures, and the Tao one has beautiful Asian drawings and really smooth paper!  You know you love feeling it too!

All of these books are written in French, so I will probably never read them knowing me, but they're nice just to have in case I want to practice and show up all of my classmates in French class!  But how cool is it just to have books on your shelf that are written in another language?  

And you book sniffers would enjoy their scent.

Hey, Gus!: TFiOS Casting Update

Just announced that Ansel Elgort accepted the role of August of The Fault in Our Stars!

Here's what some of the crew had to say about it:

John Green (author):“Ansel is whip-smart and uber-charismatic and everything I dreamed for Augustus Waters.  I am by nature a cautious pessimist, but I’ll just say it: Now that we have Shailene and Ansel, I am completely, unreservedly psyched about this movie.”
Josh Boone (director): “Ansel Elgort is the epitome of the boy John Green brought to life so vividly in his novel and he truly embodies the character traits we admire so much about Gus. His humor, sensitivity, honesty and confidence floored us. Watching him with Shailene was like seeing the film for the first time. Hearing then say okay to each other was incredibly moving. We couldn't be more thrilled to have found our Gus.”
Wyck Godfrey (producer): ”We were all swept away by the humor, charm, and aching vulnerability Ansel brought to his portrayal of Gus. His performance completely annihilated our concerns about his playing Caleb in Divergent with Shailene, and we are confident that the fans of Fault will fall in love with him the same way that Hazel does–slowly, and then all at once.”
My thoughts: I really know nothing about this guy except that he will be playing Caleb in Divergent.  If John Green says that he is the man for the job, he must be.  And he has some nice shirtless pictures online, so I like him already.  Haha.
How weird will it being first seeing him and Shailene as brother and sister and then as lovers?  Obviously, they have great chemistry together and are professional about their work, so I'm confident about these two movies!
What do you think about this casting?

On to Bigger and Better: Guest Blogging

On this blog, there are guest bloggers very, very rarely.  It's mainly just me, but I finally got to experience being a guest blogger today!  And by the way, my friend Danielle may be writing a few posts in the near future, so look out for that.

It was interesting and I feel kinda special guest blogging, so make me feel better and go read my post.
It's about fun times in Paris in order to promote Page Morgan's The Beautiful and the Cursed.   While you're there, go enter for signed hardcovers and swag!

Wait, WHY? City of Ashes Filming this Fall

It was just announced yesterday that City of Ashes got the green light for filming.  The cast will be the same.  While I like the series, this is a gutsy move!!! I'm not so sure that this is going to be the next big franchise.  The Host was supposed to be the next Twilight but that was a fail.

I can't help but think this is so stupid.  Why wouldn't you wait until after City of Ashes comes out until you make a decision? Hubris could be your death...
