HIATUS

I have to say that due to some changes in my life recently, I might not post for a long while. I have not read in some time and adulting life is catching up with me now that I graduated. I promise that soon I will find a pace and start to blog again. For now, everything that is being posted was scheduled from a long time ago. See ya!

UPDATE: I'm really trying to find a better pace. I am reading more than before, but I need to find time to actually review and post more. I think you might see more posts, at random, that have not been scheduled from way before. Anyways, enjoy, and I'll be back soon, hopefully.

[Short Review] The Ever After of Ella & Micha, by: Jessica Sorensen

The Ever After of Ella & Micha 
(The Secret #4)
by: Jessica Sorensen

★★★★★

The day Ella has waited for is just around the corner. It's the day she'll marry Micha, the love of her life, the light that guided her out of the darkness. It looks like it will be the perfect Christmas-until an unexpected package arrives with a harsh reminder of Ella's past. Suddenly Ella doesn't feel as confident about her future. Can she really have a "happily-ever-after" if she's never even seen one?

Micha will stand by Ella no matter what she's going through-though he worries that she might leave him standing at the altar again. When he's offered a once-in-a-lifetime chance to tour with his favorite bands for three months, Micha knows he can't leave Ella behind. But can he ask her to uproot her life to join him on the road?

Now Ella and Micha must find a way to balance their fears, their dreams, and their love . . . if they ever want to hear wedding bells.
So, it ends. The story of Ella and Micha. Well, it do not end, but you get what I mean. This story was a beautiful mess and I will truly miss reading more of it. Also, the story of Lila and Ethan, which I loved even more, was going to be my downfall if I didn't read the last story. But I did and all the characters lived happily every after.

In this book, the wedding bells are ringing. Ella say yes to marry and finally they have a date to do it. But something happened and Ella stood up Micha, she totally got her reasons. At the end, the plan the wedding in their favorite place of Star Grove. The perfect day, the perfect people, the perfect place... just the perfect wedding. Ella still have some problems sinking the thought that she will get married, but Micha is always there for her.

I love the story, I really did. You know, who doesn't want to have someone like Micha in our lives. Someone who is always there no matter how you are, what you do and how you think. Because Ella didn't make the job easier for Micha, but still he was there always. That kind of love is memorable, to be forever. Wishing is free!

[Short Review] The Forever of Ella & Micha, by Jessica Sorensen

The Forever of Ella & Micha 
(The Secret #2)
by: Jessica Sorensen

★★★½☆

Ella and Micha have survived tragedy and heartbreak. When they're together, anything seems possible. But now they are thousands of miles apart, and managing their long distance relationship will put their love to the test.

Ella is back at school, trying hard not worry so much about her future. But with her father in and out of rehab, she's having a hard time making it through the days. All she wants is Micha by her side, but she refuses to let her problems get in the way of his dreams.

Micha spends his days touring the country with his band, but deep down he knows something is missing. Being away from Ella is harder than he thought it would be. He wants her closer to him-needs her with him. But he won't ask her to leave college, just to be with him.

The few moments they do spend together are intense and passionate, but it only makes it more difficult when they have to part. They know they want to be together, but is wanting something enough to get them to their forever?

The book was fucking good, don't get me wrong, but there were a bunch of things that I didn't like. Not even a single bit, but the book got single bonus points because of the end and the epilogue. If you read the first book, I do recommend reading this one. Maybe you will enjoy it better than me.

Well, the story of Micha and Ella keeps moving. It does sounds like they are having a happy life together, no matter that they are away from each other. Ella's in school and Micha is hitting the road with Naomi's band. At the end of book one, Ella and her brother make "peace" and her dad went to a rehab. Things are getting heavy when Ella's dad ran away from it and she needs to save the day. Micha has his own problems with her dad and what he wants to do with his life from now own. Now, they both have problems with each other and between the distance, her mental "illness", his daddy issues and his drinking problems... everything explode. For now own, the real question is more complicated to answer. "Can love lasts forever?"

The answer of that question is: yes, forever. That's all I'm saying. Although, I wanted to say so much about why and why not I like this book, but words fail me. It's good, I recommend others, but you can read it and talk to me about it. Give it a try.

TTT [4]

Top Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read 
***I'm late I know!***
AUTHORS THAT I WANT TO READ SOMEDAY SOON

#10 - Jane Austen
I have never read a classic of her. I'm so ashamed, because which student of the English Department haven't read a book of her. Maybe me. *sighs*

#09 - Lisa McMann
Maybe you don't know her or maybe you do. But she got so pretty awesome books that are in my TBR list for years and I don't know why I haven't read them. Some of her series are: Visions Trilogy & Wake Trilogy.

#08 - Michael Grant
Now, this is incredicle because I do have a book of him. The first book of his series called Gone, which is the same name of the book. I haven't heard anything bad about the book, but nothing inspire me to read it. But I will, oh, I will.

#07 - Gillian Flynn
She is one of the newest authors I have add in my TBR list. I was searching for books in Amazon and I saw Gone Girl, so when I was going to put it in my wish list... BAM! It appears that she have two more books very dark. Then when I was entering to a class a student was reading Dark Places, I asked if it was good and he say that it was. Totally going to buy those two and maybe the third one too.

#06 - Ransom Riggs
Other author that I have added recently is him. The incredible thing is that I have both of his books and yet, I have NOT read them. What I'm waiting for? No clue.

AUTHOR THAT I'M NOT PLANNING TO READ SOON

#05 - Stephen King
I don't know, but something do not attracks me to read his books. Maybe someday, but maybe not. Time will tell.

AUTHORS THAT I WILL NEVER READ BOOKS OF THEM

#04 - George R.R. Martin
I will never ever read Game of Thrones. NEVER EVER! Maybe I will watched the series, but read his books... never.

#03 - J.R.R. Tolkein
Same as the last author, I will never ever read his books. I really hope so that none of my next professors of the English Department make me read one. Please, I don't want to.

#02 - Sara Shepard
TADA! No difference from both author before her, but this time is slighty different. I wouldn't read a book of her, because I don't want to be like those girls of the time when Twilight came out and everyone wanted to read it. I mean, no one is reading that much the books as seeing the series, but you get me. I will not watch nor read the series.

#01 - J.K. Rowling
The world end for you, right? Very hard to understand, right? Yeah, I will never read a Harry Potter book, neither Casual Vacancy and not The Cuckoo's Calling (it is in my TBR, but it will be eliminated soon). I just don't want to read her books. That's it.

Ignite Me

by: Tahereh Mafi

★★★★★

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment.

[Short Review] The Secret of Ella and Micha, by: Jessica Sorensen

The Secret of Ella and Micha
(The Secret #1)
by: Jessica Sorensen

★★★★☆

A rule-breaker with a fiery attitude, Ella always wore her heart on her sleeve. Then she left everything behind to go to college, where she transformed into someone who follows the rules, keeps everything together, and hides all her problems. Now it's summer break and she has nowhere else to go but home. But once there, Ella fears that everything she's worked so hard to bury might resurface-especially with Micha living right next door.

Smart, sexy, and confident, Micha can get under Ella's skin like no one else. He knows everything about her, including her darkest secrets. If he tries to tempt the old Ella to return, he will be impossible to resist. But what Ella doesn't realize is that when she left, she took a piece of Micha's heart with her. Now he's determined to win back the girl he lost, no matter what it takes.

I question over and over is: does Jessica Sorensen do another thing than write? I'm not saying this as a bad thing, but jeez, she have a lot of books out there. Now, I read the first book of The Secret series, and guess what? I like it. It was just the perfect first step to this series that can go really well.

When secrets cloud your minds, you will no longer want to watch yourself in a mirror. Basically, that's Ella's life after walking away from everything eight months ago. She left everything she knew and loved. Bailing wasn't good enough, because after those months she needed to go back to the past, where everything started. Micha Scott is those kind of boys that are to die for, and certainly Ella does dies for him, but she doesn't want to admit it. Micha is totally in love with Ella almost from the very start. Now that Ella is back, things can get back to normal, except that she isn't the same girl. The quest of Micha is to get back the old Ella or if not, at least some things about her. Can they move over their own personal ghosts to be happy?

This book is the kind of those that you read the synopsis, see the cover pic, read the title and doesn't attract your attention. I know this via personal experience. Why did I pick up this book? Well, first because it was in my iBooks shelf for quite some time and because I have read some of Sorensen's books and I wanted to give another try. I'm happy that I did read it. The book is fast and slow in some points. It really get on my nerves the situation of Ella, but I understand it. Its a short book and you can read it in one day. If you like sweet things, this is your opportunity to read it.
