  Book Chic City is hosting this reading challenge. Is it 2011 yet? No? Drat! I have to wait a few more weeks *sigh*. Anyway, below are the details.

* Rules: To read TWENTY FOUR (24) horror & urban fantasy novels in 2011 (24 is the minimum but you can read more if you wish!)

* You don't have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront you can change them, nothing is set in stone! The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.

Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week I'm reading Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson, so I'll share from this book...Enjoy!

 "My father, as was his long habit, went to hide in his den, comforted by his proximity to his collection of old whiskey and new porn.
  After a few seconds, during which time we all stared at the mightily vibrating blender, I let the whirling blades groan to a halt."

What are you reading now?

Monday Movie Review

Finally!! I was starting to bite my nails waiting for this one! I can't say how much I loved the movie! It was awesome! Unlike the previous one, there were no major events missing from the movie.After that last one, I really thought I was going to be disappointed again. I'm so glad I was wrong. It's sad that this is the beginning of the end. Seeing all the kids at the cinema, I started remembering how I felt the first time I started reading Harry Potter, the weeks when all me and my friends did in school break was talk about the chapters we read the night before and how we complained about having to do homework instead of reading about the newest adventures of Harry and his friends and try and decide which of our colleagues was just like Hermione. 

It really feels like a chapter is about to end. Like that last link with childhood is about to break. It may be stupid, I know, but before the movie, I had hope. Like maybe JK Rowling would change her mind and write another HP book, or they'd decide to make a TV show or something. Now I know it will probably take years for something like that.

I only wish that the second part is just as good as this one.

2011 Reading Challenges

Browsing through some of my favorite book blogs I've discovered some challenges for the next year. Since I'm now in the phase when no book seems interesting enough to read (maybe it's the cold or something) I decided I need some serious motivation. So I'll sing up on a few of them and see how it goes :)
I'll be keeping you posted and I'll be writing reviews to most of the books I'll be reading. So...let the signing up begin :D


Sorry for missing this past few months. Real life tends to sometimes come between me and my fun. Fortunately, I've graduated and I got my degree. Also, I moved to another country. I have to start to speak the language and then get a job...until then, I'm trying to catch up on all the reading I missed during summer.
I really hope your summer was good or better than good.
