Happy Birthday… to me!

Yup, today is my birthday and I turn 21! Yay me! 😉

(I know you’re seeing the number 22, but for my sake I needed Rob with me on my birthday so, you know… deal with it!)

Given the big occasion, and that I’ve been a succesful blogger for three full month (successful meaning I’m still here), I thought I could do a big giveaway.

What do you say? You agree? Yeah, me too!

I took my time picking the books I’ll be giving away. Since I live in Uruguay and taxes suck and I don’t have a job, I’ll be giving away ebooks, so yes, it’s international! YAY! 😀

Now to the list, and let me just tell you that they are all on my favorites list, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Are you ready? Yes? Let’s do this! Continue reading

My pick:

I loved this cover from the moment I saw it. And as we’ve already stablished, I read books that have covers that I like, so yes I’m reading this book as soon as it’s out (February 19th 2013). But just so you don’t think badly of me, let me just tell you that the summary is equally captivating.

I loved the colors in this cover, the blue the pink, they are just so bright! Plus the shadow-y details all over the place that makes you think just what this book might bring.

Cover Crush: Easy by Tammara Webber

 Cover Crush is a meme hosted by On The Shelf. It features beautiful and eye-catching covers.  Any cover can be showcased whether it is old or new, read or still sitting in your TBR stack. Join in, link up and enjoy some beautiful covers!

My pick:

I think I am sometimes ashamed to admit that the cover is a great part of how I pick books to read. If I don’t like it, I don’t read it. And yes, I know the whole “don’t pick a book by its cover” thing, but it’s stronger than me. Books with beautiful covers are more likely to be read (by me) than books with not-so-good covers.

The cover of Easy was one of the first I fell for this year. It promises a hell lot of things, and I’d say the book delivers. I loved it to death [Review]. It’s one of my favorite books, actually.

Oh Lucas! 😉

Book Description:

When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she’s single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a class for the first time in her life.

Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex’s frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night–but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.

When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he’s hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

My Review:

This is more of a rant than a review.

“Choosing to be with you isn’t a difficult decision, Jacqueline,” he breathed, pulling back one final time to stare into my eyes. “It’s easy. Incredibly easy.”

You know what else is easy? Falling in love with this book.

I was, actually, telling myself all day long yesterday that I was not going to read a book. That I was going to chill and catch up on homework for school, which I’m falling behind since I’ve been reading more than my free time actually allows. But when I came across this book’s cover I wanted to check it out. So I did. That led me to Amazon, and reading the sample there. Then I was left feeling pretty giddy about Easy, because really, it sounded awesome. What do I do after that? I throw everything else away and read it. Not. A. Single. Regret. I can’t stress that enough. I actually wished I had read it sooner.
